Chris has a BA in Psych. with honours and also works as an educator with the Burnaby School Board empowering special-needs and at risk youth, reserving judgment and turning obstacles into opportunities.

Wellness Cafe



Daniel Beavington, From a Douglas College Sport Science Diploma I developed a highly kinesthetic approach to understanding, maintaining and enhancing the workings of the body.  This was further refined by my years as a professional drummer, my time spent as a sports coach and my work with special needs children.  In February of 2018, I completed my training at the Vancouver School of Healing Arts in the Bodywork Therapy Program and became passionately committed to working in that field.

Self-development has also played a pivotal role in guiding me towards my life purpose in the healing arts.  I did intensive training through the respected Warrior-sage program and continued studying in the fields of neuroscience and psychology.

I am dedicated to using my skills and training to benefit my community and I am currently offering service through innovative courses in relatable, humorous consciousness as well as behavioral videos that foster the growth and competence to better equip us for life.
