Be the Change You Want to See in the World
ManiStone Center for Well Being is a non-profit multidisciplinary clinic and event facility located in the heart of downtown Nelson, British Columbia. ManiStone was created to provide a professional, healing and affordable environment for practitioners to share their healing gifts with the community.
Through the magic of collaboration we are able to provide a holistic approach to healing for our clients, supporting them to navigate the many options available in the alternative field as well provide a healing environment to offer low or no cost events that promote well being. If you browse the pictures posted on this page you will get a sense of the beauty of the centre and the surrounding environment.
The centre is named after mani stones which are stone plates, rocks and/or pebbles intentionally placed along roadsides and rivers inscribed, often, with the mantra (prayer) Om Mani Padme Hum. Tibetan Buddhists believe that this mantra evokes a state of presence that is considered ideal for creating positive change in the world. They tell us the mantra will do this whether we say it, hear it, see its written form, stand near a mani stone, walk around it, or merely think of the mantra in any form at all.
The name ManiStone aligns with Ghandi’s powerful message “Be the change you want to see in the world”. Through aligning with the divine aspect that exists in each of us, and supporting others to do the same, we experience profound well-being and in essence become living mani stones – changing the world through embodying and living our own personal mantra. This speaks to our collective intention as well being practitioners – both in how we want to live and how we serve our clients.
Practitioners who join the ManiStone team experience the exponential power of co-creating with others to build a satisfying and successful practice. We are currently exploring ways to increase the visibility of our offerings through developing an online presence together as well as exploring events and other offerings that can support our community to identify, access, afford the many services available to enhance personal well being.
Whether you are seeking to enhance your own personal well-being or you are a practitioner dedicated to serving others in this process, ManiStone has been designed to support you to achieve success in your endeavors.

Practitioners Vision of ManiStone
Emily Nickason – Certified Refloxologist
‘I see a thriving centre that is reaching out into the community as a whole. Reaching across different demographics to bring the “alternative” into the “norm”.’
‘I see a sense of calm for those who come in and feel right away that we are here to help them on their path to well-being, and support them to navigate their options with more ease.’
Jill Beaulieu – Registered Massage Therapist
“ManiStone is a place where wellness practitioners work together, collaborate and understand the benefit of letting go of competition. We are a growing template for generating wellness locally, regionally, nationally and globally (as well as generationally and galactically!)”
We are located in the the Medical Arts Building, a place steeped in history. I am honored to work in a beautifully cared for heritage landmark.
Clayten Stedmann – Business, Personal Coach / Consultant
In my experience, Manistone currently contains a very high energy or level of consciousness. This is supported by all of the time and energy that has been put into creating a beautiful, professional environment, a community of practitioners, and by offerings like the Oneness Movement and Course in Miracles meetings that are held on site in our public seminar space regularly. It is benefited by, and a catalyst for, the healing energy of this region which becomes self evident as you spend time here. It is an example of a wellness centre that sustains itself and assists Nelson in being seen as a unique combination of being somewhat remote, having a thriving culture, beautiful geography, and the emerging awareness of this area as a centre of rejuvenation.
Don Carmichael – Holistic Kinesiologist
I really appreciate the thoughtfulness and value in this business name and the beauty of place. The unfolding birth of the collective ‘circle’ of voices, hearts and minds, sensitive to the seen and unseen, is allowing and giving a means and a form for all these loving practitioners together to co create and communicate a message of harmony, healing, humour and beauty. As within so without…
Dienna Raye – Counsellor, Collaborative Coach, Constellation Facilitator
We are entering a new paradigm where we are awakening to the collective realization that we cannot create change alone. Our gifts reveal themselves in relationship and not in isolation. That is why I love working in a collaborative environment. For me everything comes down to relationship with each other and the healing that occurs when we hold an energy of collaborative support and presence for each others unfolding.
Julie Glynn – Course in Miracles Teacher, Mentor
My vision for ManiStone is one where any barriers between healing work is let go. In other words it’s the recognition and acknowledgement of the oneness of all of us. Our path to God may look different, but, being love, we are all pointed in the right direction.
