Living Extraordinary

You’re a seeker.
You want expansion.
You enjoy a like-minded community.
And, above all, you want an extraordinary life.

Living extraordinary means living your gift. Having a message and speaking it. Your art, gift or talent comes from a place of power and certainty. To live extraordinary means you are on a journey of self exploration and your purpose in life is to continuously explore and deepen your truth.

Living Extraordinary is an event where 10 local heros share what they have learned on their journeys of greatness and inspire you to embark on your own. We have a vision where you as an attendee are a part of the event, the speakers provide touching, thought provoking messages that are the catalyst for conversations, shifts in perspective and ah – has.

As you arrive at the venue you are surrounded by a community of open and authentic individuals who want to engage in conversation. The room is often bubbling with laughter and hugs. Friends old and new sharing and connecting.

This is an event to bring together conscious like minded individuals providing the opportunity for meaningful conversations, quality connections and inspiration. Change starts with one person. Our hope is to spark a ripple effect of change in families, communities and ultimately the planet, starting with you.

Will you join us?

your host

I am a Community Builder, Event Planner and Heart Centered Speaker focused on sharing messages about people being the best versions of themselves, by connecting deeply, discovering one’s authentic path and living passionately. I’ve had the pleasure of hosting community events with over 1000 people and for a number of best selling authors such as Gabrielle Bernstein, Kate Northrup and Danielle Laporte. In 2015 I worked with the TEDxVancouver team as the Executive Director for Public Relations, we sold out the event with over 3000 people in attendance making this the largest TEDx event in the country. I live in West Vancouver with my husband Dr. Sukhi and I am the proud mama to two beautiful girls Indira and Osienne.

Matthew Kocel is a throat singer, sound healer, multi-instrumentalist, composer and recording artist with over 3 decades experience as a performer and multi-disciplinary healing arts practitioner.

With his throat singing, overtone chant and natural voice Matthew has tapped into a universal stream of music deeply familiar yet new at the same time.

The harmonic overtones of his voice – 2, 3 or more notes sounding at the same time – resonate to the core of your being, expanding awareness beyond the physical body and 5 senses.

Accompanied by humble acoustic instruments and ancient technology, Matthew’s live performances have impacted people from all walks of life internationally from Canada & USA to Central and South America.
