AN INDIGENOUS PATH TO WELLNESS
Learn how to use Indigenous teachings in your daily life to reignite your personal power, and establish transformative levels of resiliency.
Smudge Circle is the only program of its kind that not only teaches you the fundamentals of North American Indigenous culture but exactly how to APPLY traditional Indigenous teachings to your modern, everyday life.
NOW, BEFORE I TELL YOU MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE,
I WANT TO TALK ABOUT WHO IT'S FOR…
You’re an incredibly unique individual longing for connection, for more amazement, and fulfillment in your life, certain there is so much more to life than what you’re currently experiencing and you are ready to reclaim your power.
You hear that call for more out of your life. You’ve waited tirelessly on others your whole life.
Now is your time to feel that sense of fulfillment and energy that comes from real transformation.
Living disconnected from your Indigenous ancestry, continually asking yourself if you are NATIVE ENOUGH, feeling detached and misrepresented of who you really are. You may be shy and introverted, but are excited to discover more about yourself and feelings of belonging that are strongly ingrained in the tribal community.
An ally of Indigenous peoples, seeking to correctly understand the Native American culture, and traditions - in order to share and celebrate teachings in a respectful manner. You stand for openness, diversity, and inclusion, and are an ambassador for connecting your world with opportunities for growth and development.
Feeling unfulfilled and without a purpose. Finding your sense of purpose is rooted in the stories that have been taught by our ancestors for as long as they have been told. By applying traditional teachings to your life you will come out with a greater understanding of who you are, and how to create a balanced, happy life.
You’re in the right place and I’m going to tell you exactly how the Smudge Circle program will support you in your journey to applying Indigenous teachings to transform your life!

Taking this Smudge Circle course helped me continue to grow and understand more about how we can use all these tools to move forward, to help one another continue and thrive as Indigenous People. I am ever learning about our traditional medicines, and learning from the Elders how to survive through this pandemic.

Joining Smudge Circle and going through the program really opened my eyes to what these traditions and practices mean, and made me feel a reconnection to the culture and to my own ancestors. Learning from Mallory's curriculum was like learning from a trusted and patient friend, and having a group of other like minded women to talk with felt like I was in a safe place to learn and grow.
- Tanya S.
The course was beautiful! I feel much more confident with smudging now. I was never sure I was doing it in a respectful way and this course gave me confidence. When I sat down and started the modules, it was both exciting and peaceful at the same time. I loved it, highly recommend it and look forward to practising what I've learned from this course. Mallory is a gem <3
- Alynne N.
I was always drawn to the Indigenous culture and always wanted to learn more about it. This was the best way for me to learn about it and about to incorporate it into my daily life. My sister introduced me to Smudging a couple of years ago and I've done it several times but always felt disconnected or missing something. The Smudging Circle course provided me with all the missing tools.
AND AS YOUR COURSE INSTRUCTOR,
LET ME TELL YOU MORE ABOUT WHERE MY STORY STARTED…
BEFORE THERE WAS A GROWING ONLINE BUSINESS.
BEFORE THE YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
BEFORE SPEAKING ON A NATIONAL STAGE…
THERE WAS A SHY, “REZ GIRL” CHASING THE CORPORATE CITY LIFE.
- Unsure of what I really wanted.
- Living at arm’s length from my Indigenous identity.
- Desperate for acceptance from my non-native friends.
- Continually waiting on the next stage of life to make me happy.
My childhood was filled with so much quality time spent with immediate and extended family in Curve Lake First Nation.
Travelling to pow wows with my gran and my cousins, and camping trips on the island with late night stories around the fire - kept me close to my native heritage.
After I moved away from my home community, to attend Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, I found myself living in two completely different worlds.
The fast-paced, capitalistic world and the nostalgic world of my home community.
This left me not fitting in in either place… feeling completely misplaced, and alone.
The only way to cope with the overwhelming unattachment was to immerse myself in my schooling and career endeavours, to the point where it became an obsession.
I realized how important it was for me to share our amazing culture, knowledge, and teachings with the world.
My friends and acquaintances wanted to learn more about the Indigenous culture, and support native artists, but it was very difficult to access the knowledge, teachings, and native giftware away from a First Nation.
SO, I DECIDED TO TAKE THE EMPTY FEELINGS AND QUESTIONS- AND TRY TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
I started reading as much as I could about happiness, personal growth, mindset, focus, habits, anything that could help get me out of that dark place.
Our Indigenous teachings covered all of these same topics, and there was an incredible amount of overlap that I wasn’t aware of until learning these new tools, and practices for living a balanced, happy life.
The transformation was absolutely life-changing, and there was and still is so much more to learn about taking back your personal power - control over your happiness.
This journey that I have been on, to be able to support others on their journey to re-connection and happiness is the greatest honour.
FEELING CONNECTED WITH WHO YOU ARE, AND WHO YOU WANT TO BE
WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE.
