Our Team

The Conscious Youth Program

Welcome to The Conscious Youth Program at The Social Beehive!

We have assembled a team of highly-sensitive, heart-centred professionals who will create the space, the program and the time for these young people to identify, embrace and employ their gifts.

In addition, they will discover tools to navigate this intense, chaotic, unconscious, high-tech world and the space to be authentically who they were created to be.... tomorrow's generation of confident, empowered, and conscious leaders.

Heather Cabral, Founder and Creative Visionary

If I had recognized my gifts as a youth, how would my life be different? What choices would I have made?  Where would I be now?  What grief would have I not have endured?

I am different. I think different. I have high self-awareness, am a strategic thinker, see patterns and can be brutally honest -these traits are not a curse ~ these are "my gifts".

Much of my life, I've lowered my standards, dumbed myself down, numbed out with food or alcohol, ignored my inner voice, did things that didn't align with my values and more... in the name of belonging.

What would it have been like if I had had leadership, support, unconditional love, mentors, teachers, friends, and community who could have helped me understand, accept, and embrace who I was as a youth?

This is my mission.. to assemble the team and create the space for this to happen. Today, more than ever, our youth need leadership and conscious parenting. 

This is how I choose to use my gifts to make the world a better place. <3

Laurie Nevin

Laurie Nevin wants to help youth feel seen, heard and understood.

As an ordained ministerial counselor, Laurie is very skilled at creating the space for Self-realization. Her extensive background in mental health and spiritual counselling (no specific denomination) is largely based on a Course in Miracles, the Way of Mastery and countless supporting resources... as we do at The Social Beehive... the focus is on promoting Oneness and Love.

Laurie considers herself to be a 'reminder' versus someone whom gives answers because you already embody inherent wisdom and an Infinite connection to the Divine (God/Creator/Source; use your own language).

Thank you for sharing your gifts with us Laurie.
