Healing & Mysticism
Exploring the Sacredness, Beauty, Power and Wonder of Life
The Healing & Mysticism Track seeks to create opportunities for participants to connect more deeply with their authentic selves and to others, as well as to the deeper meaning of the world around us. We recognize that “healing” and “mysticism” are separate experiences for some and intrinsically connected for others. In most cases, these experiences are deeply personal and we honour the diverse worldviews and values that guide how each individual chooses to connect and make meaning of their existence.
We see healing as the Self’s ability to become more fully liberated* and, in so doing, create more space for love, joy and peace to enter our lives. We can then potentially become more open to new perspectives and opportunities to exercise our personal power, which provide the foundation for our most authentic Selves to be nurtured, emerge into the world and expand.
As participants get more closely in touch with their own relationship to the Sacred** within, we hope they will feel greater comfort in being playful, sharing their unique gifts, and connected and capable of opening their hearts to others or the Sacred** around. While our understanding of healing has been shaped largely by Western medicine, we believe there is value to expanding this understanding with diverse traditions and cultures and encompass healing that is physical, emotional, psychological, mental, and spiritual.
For those seeking to go beyond their known reality, we view mysticism as the opportunity to journey to the depths of one’s soul, our planet, or explore the multi-dimensions of our universe. This journey may support one’s healing, simply be a chance to play within different realities, or get curious of what may exist beyond us.
We are looking for...
Track contributors who can inspire us to engage differently and more holistically with our health and/or our relationship to mysticism. We welcome healing and/or mystical practices from all cultures, traditions, beliefs, lived, and professional experiences.

*We understand that for many true inner liberation (on the micro level) may not occur until systemic shifts (on the macro level) happen. Thus, we support each individual on their personal healing path whilst holding this awareness.
**To recognize the diversity in belief systems we are using the word “Sacred” to hold a place for your own definition of a Higher Power, Creator, Life Force Energy, Nature, the Universe, the Divine, or the best version of your Self.
Your track leaders are Tremble, Master G, Wacky Duck
Tremble is a new economy builder, experience designer, and diversity & inclusion advocate. For the last 6 years, Tremble has focused on local economic development through social enterprise models using anti-oppression, diversity and inclusion frameworks. With Reset, Tremble is curious to explore our inner worlds - how can human intimacy with oneself and others facilitate self-love, healing, and creativity? Tremble is not an expert on this subject and will draw on her lived experience and contributors and experts’ from within and outside of Reset community to imagine this track. Oh and Tremble eats ramen for breakfast.
‘Wacky Duck’ was hatched while instructing young hockey summer campers on the finer points of snorkelling and his fellow counsellors found his last name impossible to pronounce. However, it wasn’t until he landed at his first Reset that Wacky understood what it meant to embrace this side of himself and truly soar. Turns out, it had nothing to do with flight and everything to do with spirit. Known for his love of labyrinth walking, Wacky finally felt truly seen by a community of peers. This Summer he aspires to use Track Leadership towards nurturing his personal edge of the sensual, erotic, and playful. He looks forwards to meeting the flock that will fly with him.
