one breath at a time retreat

Loving yourself one breath at a time!

A healing and transformative day retreat with Mehrnaz Massoudi.

An author, speaker, and emotional healing coach, Mehrnaz integrates her background in molecular science and knowledge of the universe with her experience of meditation and her training as an Emotional Freedom Technique practitioner, helping people to find new levels of self-love, courage, and inner tranquility. 

Mehrnaz’s work as an emotional healing coach is the base for her self-help short stories in her most recent book She’s Still Here:

“In this collection of nine short stories, Mehrnaz Massoudi tenderly explores the many layers of grief and rage mothers, daughters, and women around the world face throughout their lifetimes, and the healing that can be found in the most sacred of places—within ourselves.

She’s Still Here is an evocative, touching portrayal of the human experience, and its resilience in the face of profound suffering, betrayal, regret, and loss. But it is also a beautifully rendered expression of love in all of its forms, but especially the love we should give ourselves.”



Mehrnaz shares the belief and wisdom of ‘loving oneself’. Participants will be guided through breath work and contemplation to feel centred, and identify what they need to release to let love in.


Those who join us at the Hooded Merganser restaurant will practice being in the present moment as they eat and chat. This supports learning how to disconnect from the stress of work and home life while enjoying their meals and the company of others by being in the now.


Q&A with Mehrnaz followed by group heart-to-heart chat and soul-to-soul connection, a practice of sharing authentically and hearing others empathetically.

Bring a notebook and pen to take notes.

Coffee, tea, and water provided.

Lunch —12:30 to 2PM — is not provided. Bring your own and stay in the conference room or join others at the Hooded Merganser, which has a booking under Mehrnaz’ name: you can call and add your name to the list at 250-487-4663.
