Scarlet feels at ease speaking with youth, she doesn't hide, she doesn't tip-toe and yet she delicately holds firm boundaries. She can contain space for difficult conversations youth crave to brave. Her belief in the integral value youth have in forming our future is heard and felt by those she works with. Youth are able to align with their truth, to be seen and celebrated for the blessing that they are, and to connect together in sacred practices that foster a sense of tribe! Isn't this exactly what we all desire and so desperately need at the pivital moments of our youth?!
Scarlet facilitates weekend workshops for youth to connect to spiritual practices. She introduces youth to meditation practices, visualizations, rituals for developing intuition, sacred sharing, shamanic drumming, clearing energy, emotional regulation practices, and experiences for connecting to the sacred.
Imagine what your life would be like if you had been connected to spiritual practices as a teenager. Imagine knowing and trusting your intuition as a young woman discerning who to love and how to be loved. Imagine sensing the magic within your womb as you became initiated to the divine feminine. Scarlet is committed to giving youth opportunities for spiritual exploration outside of religion.
Scarlet has dedicated over 10 years of her life to advocating, empowering, nurturing and leading youth facing adversity. As a counsellor and program manager Scarlet has worked with non-profit organizations and government health organizations to support youth coping with trauma, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, bullying, loneliness, grief, sexualized violence, and poverty. In her experiences supporting youth she witnessed the impact of oppression and power abuse fragmenting the brain's stages of development and disconnecting youth from their sense of self. It became clear to her that youth crave a relationship to purpose, to something bigger than themselves, to being seen, to being heard, to be valued. Scarlet could see that the structures created to support youth were continuing to fail in addressing their needs.
