Meet some of our Crooked Cures Crusaders

Meet Kim Bouwmeester

Living in the mountains gives you all kinds of moments of reflection. The fresh air, snow peaked mountains and pristine lake

                                                               all in this Boreal Forest have an inspiring and thought provoking effect on how you

                                                              feel, work, live and play. In years gone by I have always loved to play with holistic

                                                               and natural cures for what ails ya~~ Healing happens in many forms. Cures can

                                                              come from the outside, breathtaking visuals, music and song, breathing fresh crisp air,

                                                              loving touch, nutrition and Laughing! Cure can come from the inside, deep breaths,

                                                               positive thoughts and energy toward ourselves and others, exhaling and releasing

                                                              tension and negativity…more laughing!

After many years working together with children and adults who struggled with  physical, emotional, along with

mental health and financial issues, it seemed only natural to me to look at their overall/whole world patterns and problems…

putting healing into perspective and individual autonomy. So I put my love of herbs and sneaking healthy foods into my kids

meals on the wall with little autographed diplomas that say I can talk about Mental Health, Holistic Nutrition and Herbalism.

Hence! Crooked Cures!

Crooked Cures is about perspective! Through our journey to get to this place Crooked Lake Resort we have been

passionate about being sustainable…holistically. When you live off the grid, and are 2 hours from a major centre,

it means looking at things from many different perspectives. Surviving our first winter in the mountains was an adventure
filled with what ifs and why nots. We learned the importance of preparation, getting the wood/kindling and outside chores

done before dark. We learned to make food from scratch (Crooked Cooking)…what’s in the freezer and cupboard. We learned

that mice and packrats and dogs and cats all want to live with you in your warmish space when it's -40'. We chose the dogs

and cats…they convinced the rest to leave. We were cautioned to keep ahead of the snow before it gets too much and to

always have a plan b and c in case our snow removal tactics faltered. We realized that nary a few days go by before someone

will drop in to say hi and maybe enjoy some crooked cooking. But most of all, and the best words of advice…We learned to

take it in stride, cuz no matter how much you try to control your life…the universe has its own agenda for you. When the

fires started to erupt in July 2017, we were up in the alpine oblivious to the chaos that was happening to our new friends

and neighbours, albeit far away. Many people and businesses struggled to stay alive physically, emotionally and financially.

We learned  to ‘go fishing’…and keep laughing!

My vision for the Crooked Cures Women's Weekend is that women will venture out to the Cariboo Back

Country, on their own or with friends and spend some time doing just what they want to do for the

weekend. We have some pretty cool and talented women coming from near and far to share their passions 

with you if you choose. You are also welcome just to be. I will be more than happy to sit down with

                                                       anyone who wants to talk about what ever ails ya~~

                                                                    I'll also help you find your axe throwing niche. And if creative cooking

                                                       is your sweet spot, come spend some time in Kim's Crooked Kitchen.

                                                       Practice what you love to do over the winter and share your unique way

                                                       of doing things in this open, accepting of everyone and everything space.

                                                        I'm thinking belly dancing :) This is Shakira, I made her and she brings out

                                                        my inner belly dancer~~~~Or maybe you need some reflective 'float' time~~~~~

Meet Kim Clark-McKay

                                        Hello new friends, I am so excited to be a part of this amazing event.  I have been to several

                                       different types of Woman’s Wellness Retreats and

                                       I can honestly say that I have always left with a new perspective on life.  I am sure that you will

                                       not be disappointed with Crooked Cures. My vision for this weekend is summed up with this.

                                       “What does it mean to hold space for another person?"
                                        It means that we are willing to walk alongside another person in whatever journey they’re on

                                        without judging  them,  making them feel inadequate, trying to fix them, or trying to impact the

                                       outcome. When we HOLD SPACE for other people, we open our hearts, offer unconditional support,

                                       and let go of judgement and control.”  So my new friends, let’s hold space for one another. Who am I,

well, I am a healer, I am a nurturer, I am a grandmother, mother, daughter, sister, wife, and the list goes on...  My journey to

becoming a healer was an interesting one and I am still in awe of the gifts I have been given. 

What is a healer…”A Healer is not someone that you go to for healing.  A Healer is someone that triggers within you,

your own ability to heal Yourself.” My offerings for this wonderful weekend are either personal or group

Reiki sessions, personal or group Drum Journey to find your power animal, De-cording, Crystal Chakra Balancing.  I work with

Spirit Animals, Crystals and Stones, Essential Oils, and Higher Powers. hat is Reiki:  Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress

reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.  We all have “life force energy” that flows through us and when it is

high we feel energized but when it’s low we are more likely  to feel stressed and get sick. 

Dictionary definition = “a form of therapy in which the practitioner is believed to channel energy into the

patient to encourage healing or restore well-being.”

What are the benefits of a Reiki Session:
*Helps you manifest your goals
*Enhances personal awareness and promotes spiritual growth
*Balances the energies in the body
*Releases blocks and suppressed feelings
*Balances organs and glands, and their bodily functions
*Treats symptoms as well as causes of disease
*Strengthens immune system
*Clears toxins
*Relieves pain
*Promotes natural self-healing

    Meet Colynn


                                      Colynn started her journey in the healthcare field in 2000 while simultaneously also beginning her

                                     path in yoga. Moving through the ranks of uncertified Home Support Worker, Care Aide, Licensed

                                     Practical Nurse and then Registered Nurse, all within the Emergency Department, she thought she

                                     had found her place in the world. After years of service, being overworked and under appreciated,

                                     Colynn experienced burnout and decided that being a doctor was likely the answer to it all…

                                      She applied to and was accepted to Medical School and coincidentally also did her yoga teacher

                                      training. She immediately recognized that Med School was not the answer, but felt locked in due

                                      to family support and an incredibly large student loan. Colynn journeyed through it all, starting

                                      a yoga business while raising a family, while working as a nurse and becoming a doctor. Little

                                      sleep and an incredibly packed schedule, brought her to a place of committing to a path, and she

                                     chose the path of yoga. She decided to leave medical school and retire from nursing and put all of

her energy into yoga and eventually coaching others in life and business.
The path of yoga and coaching has brought Colynn’s western knowledge and clinical experience to

meet with her eastern yoga philosophy and chakra work to create her very personal and individually

tailored offerings. She is filled with joy to offer yoga classes, past life regressions and one on one

coaching sessions at the annual Crooked Cures Woman’s Weekend.

Meet Britny

Does your body ache? Do you have troubles reaching in cupboards,

for your purse in the back seat of  the car, or toys off the floor?

Do you have trouble concentrating or focusing after a concussion or whiplash

event? I can help.

My name is Britny Sukert. I have a Bachelor of Athletic and Exercise Therapy,

I am a Certified Athletic Therapist and Practicing Kinesiologist. I am the owner

and clinician of One Therapy Rehabilitation in Williams Lake, BC. Who am I?
I am a romantic partner, yogi, runner, CrossFit enthusiast, outdoor adventurer, barefoot dancer,
earth/sea/sky adorer, businesswoman, entrepreneur, and lover of all beings. I am very excited to be
offering my holistic hands on healing services at Crooked Cures.
Crooked Lake Resort was my home for the first five years of my life. I grew up fishing the lake and
playing in the creek. This place is my absolute favorite place to be and I have been blessed with this
chance to offer my gift to others at the place my journey began.
As an athletic therapist and kinesiologist, I heal the body through manual therapy skills including the
following: mobilisations, soft tissue release, massage and modalities including thermotherapy and
cryotherapy. Manual therapy will increase range of motion and decrease pain, however; therapeutic
exercise is how the injury is corrected.
It is my firm belief that most issues are due to inability to breath, stabilize the core, and listen to the
body. My focus is to give my clients space to be heard, be safe, and tune into their bodies and be guided
through a rehabilitation journey.
At Crooked Cures, I will be offering injury/ body assessments, education, treatment and therapeutic
exercise programs for those seeking a change.
Check out my Instagram, @onetherapyrehabw and Facebook, @onetherapyrehab for more information
on athletic therapy, kinesiology, and me. My website is currently unavailable as I work on some BIG
changes in 2020.

2019 Sponsors and Spenders! 

The games began early for the 2nd Annual Crooked Lake Resort Ice Fishing Derby! A gorgeous day to be outside breathing in the fresh air while absorbing the breathtaking view! While everyone was chill, weigh in was serious business :) While Tom won first prize with his bounding one pounder, Angie pulled it out at the last minute for 2nd prize and Phil took 3rd. Mareika honed her skills and is still out there looking for the big one as I write this :) Tracie served up her famous chili and burgers with one arm in a sling. Thanks so much to everyone who made the somewhat harrowing journey to get out here to support the derby! There were lots of winners of the raffle prizes and as a team we raised over $800.00 for the Horsefly P.S. Farm to School Lunch Program to buy beef, pork and lamb raised in harmony with nature by the Krumsiek family at Big Bear Ranch, who are also going to give the students an educational tour of the farm. Another incredible $500.00 was donated by the Truckers Association to go the the Farm to School Program for other essential needs to keep kids eating/learning/practicing healthy life skills. Please stop in and thank our very generous biz donors by spending your $$ and appreciating them, as we do, for being community initiative partners

2018 winner!

During the fires many programs that were counting on fundraising to help sustain them had to cancel their events. And some programs are just darn good for the health of our communities. We'd like to take this opportunity to send a little something to say how much we appreciate all that they do. We will have bucket draws for the generously donated prizes and all of the proceeds will go to these programs.
