Twin Willows’ Purpose
I wish to help you improve your overall sense of well-being and achieve greater personal resilience through mindful knitting, mindfulness, and nature.
I can offer these programs and workshops on an individual basis at your home, for a group at your organization’s site or in our natural surroundings.
Twin Willows Farm is nestled in a woodsy area, near cultivated agricultural land, and natural wetlands in the east end of Ottawa. My husband and I own 38 acres of land with about 10 acres put aside for our horses’ use, and many trails through the woods for walking and contemplating the joys of nature.
Twin Willows provides a natural setting that works its way into most of my farm-based Wellness workshops.
Francine – the Well-Being Enabler
I am keen to help you find the harmony that is within you; to help you remove some of the barriers that keep you from accessing this peace and balance.
Francine Portenier of Twin Willows Farm has received a Certificate in Level 1 Mindfulness-based Interventions from the Ottawa Mindfulness Clinic.
I am an experienced Systems Design Engineer; a Certified Life Coach; and a keen knitter. Here’s a look into my story so far.
