We are a group of multidisciplinary practitioners with a shared belief in holistic health and integrated wellness.

How we started
Eagle Wellness founder and director Meera Dhebar has been a practicing social worker and counsellor for more than 20 years. In the summer 2016 she was seeking out a space to work with like minded practitioners and healers. The beautiful space at 402 West Pender St. became available and she jumped at the opportunity to secure it. Aaron Purdie was keen to work with Meera to develop the practice and help build it from the ground up. Together they sought out other practitioners and invited them to share the space and create a vision for growing the practice.
Each member of the team has their own style and approach, but enjoy working together and meet regularly to discuss and develop their practice.
The eagle has been chosen as the symbol for our practice, because of its own journey of rebirth and transformation. The eagle is represented in this way in many cultures and traditions around the world.
The eagle has the longest life span of its species, and can live up to the age of 70. However to reach this age, the eagle must make a difficult decision in it’s 40s. While in it’s 40’s, the eagle’s long and flexible talons can no longer grab prey, and their long and sharp beak becomes bent. Their wings become heavy with thick feathers stuck to their chest, and it becomes difficult to fly. The eagle is now faced with two options: die, or undergo a painful 150-day long process of change.
To begin the change process, the eagle will fly to a mountain top nest. It will knock out its beak against a rock till it can be plucked out. The eagle will then wait for a new beak to grow back and then it will pluck out its’ talons. Once the talons grow back, the eagle starts plucking it’s feathers, and awaits their regrowth.
After five months the eagle takes its’ famous flight of rebirth, and will live for 30 more years.
Let us help you begin the change process, to move towards meeting your goals, and finding greater peace and contentment in your everyday life. Please contact us today at 604 440 0847, email@example.com
