Patty Shortreed Headshot 2011-03-25 5147A

Patty’s music career began at age eleven when she won the school talent contest. By eighteen she was playing professionally at such notable venues as the Banff Springs Hotel and the Calgary Petroleum Club. After a career in the corporate world she returned to her musical roots and re-awakened her voice mid-life, performing in Canada and the United States in both private and popular public venues and self-produced concerts. Patty founded Calgary's "One World Choir" and produced three solo CDs featuring original works. One highlight of her career was singing on Oprah’s stage.


Bringing the joy of music and authentic expression into people's lives is one of Patty’s greatest pleasures. Trained in both classical and pop genres, she excels at teaching people how to connect with their audience through their voice or music. As a professional musician, recording artist, concert performer, and music teacher, she specifically offers coaching and instruction in voice, piano, music theory and performance.

Circle and Indoor

Sacred Fire


In celebration of the co-generative power of the Winter Solstice and the New Moon join Alara Payten for a healing circle and indoor sacred fire ceremony on Sunday, December 21st, 1 - 3 pm.

Alara will take you on a guided meditation for healing, and for gathering the gifts of wisdom available to you as you remember the Truth of who you are as a Divine Co-Creator of your life. 

Using intuitively spoken words, toning and the heartbeat of her 80 cm Community Mother Drum, Soletê - Golden1, she will take you on a portal journey through the doorway of your own Sacred Heart.

Hands on healing will be offered to those wishing to receive.

The drum portal journey will be followed by an indoor Sacred Fire Ceremony to call forth your good for the winter season. As the days start to lengthen once again your desires are empowered to fruition by the energy of the New Moon.

Speaker: Alara Payten


"The Burning Bowl and Letter to God Meditation"


The Burning Bowl Ceremony and Letter to God Meditation are opportunities to take back our personal power from the people and the circumstances that we gave it away to.

For those of us who've done this process before, we might be tempted to say, “I've already done this, why would I need to it again?"

I invite you to be aware that it’s like peeling an onion – as we evolve and grow, more layers, more out-dated beliefs, more un-reconciled wounds of our past reveal themselves to be presenced, honoured and integrated or released. Each time we allow ourselves to truly be in the moment, new possibilities arise because we are ever-expanding beings and no two experiences are ever exactly the same.

The most important thing to know at this time is that we are never alone in this process. We are always guided by Spirit; the Spirit that helps us step into living in the heaven on earth that we co-create when we live in the Truth of our Divine Being-ness, our Essence, our Christ-Self.

Whatever we need to integrate, or to let go of, we invite our Holy Spirit — and our whole spirit – to reveal it to us and to enter fully into this sacred process with us, as us.


Alara Payten combines spiritual intuition and sacred heart wisdom to help men and women make peace with their past, so they can reclaim their power and liberate their lives. 

24 years of practice as a Physical Therapist, (under the name of Brenda Hope Gibbs), supports her expertise as a Sacred Inner Journey Facilitator, Spiritual Intuitive Energy Alchemist, Soul Song Energy Blessing Transmitter and Community Mother Drum Portal Journey Guide.

Alara’s unique approach frees men and women who are sick and tired of being prisoners of their own past. She creates sacred space for compassionate transformation and guides her soul brothers and sisters to reclaim their personal power, their authentic voice and their empowered choice. 

Make Peace With Your Past, so you can...

Reclaim Your Power & Liberate Your Life

(Alara is also known as Brenda Hope Gibbs)
