Welcome to Life Force Experiential Activities!
We are proud to be an approved Agency for Community Living British Columbia. We are a unique “experiential” program in and around Shuswap Lake offering in home support coordination and skill development opportunities to those with a developmental disability.
In order for clients to feel inspired, empowered, and confident enough to take positive steps in their lives,
to want to be involved in community…
They must first find joy in themselves
Life Force provides wholistic person centered services, facilitating integrative (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual) activities, support, and counselling to our clients, encouraging them to discover their passions, and establish and achieve their goals.
Often clients in need of supports are not always precise on what they even need; Life Force facilitates and utilizes an array of activities to elicit inspiration from a client and/ or allow feelings to surface; consequently, enhancing their ability to discover what they would like to do.
We provide supportive comfort and encouraging opportunities for clients to recognize, reflect, and process their feelings, challenges, and abilities.
Challenges a person identifies in their life situation(s) is collaboratively explored through alternative learning and individualized activities and processing strategies such as (but not limited to) nature walks, art and play therapy, music and vibration sound therapy, drama and improvisation, yoga and dance, breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation, as well as other experiences such as being in and learning about nature, canoeing and water safety, outdoor education (lost in the woods prevention), practice day camping, and much more.
Life Force Programming begins by seeing the person first, regardless of diagnosis, regardless of age, regardless of past actions or present behaviours.
Addressing challenges with clients in an all inclusive wholistic approach, and truly support and encourage them to discover their own:
DARN-C (DESIRES, ABILITIES, REASONS, and NEED) = COMMITMENT
We explore topics such as self care and a variety of skills for independent living. We provide clients support with goal setting around: education, employment, and vocational options in a unique alternative fashion. We work with clients and families to create individualized experiences that naturally develops inspiration; consequently, the internal motivation and self-confidence clients need to ultimately make decisions, take action, and sustain a positive behavior and / or life style change.
WHY CHOOSE LIFE FORCE?
The goal of Life Force Programming is to facilitate experiences around acquiring knowledge, embracing your true self (FOR REAL!!), and learning to be in the present.

We strive to establish a trusting safe environment for our clients to be allowed the freedom to explore whatever it is they feel passionate about doing. We see them and support them right where they are, in each moment.
Specifically, Life Force adheres to an all inclusive delivery model, with client consent inviting family members, client’s support workers, existing service providers, and other mentors to be aware and/ or participate in activities so to provide optimum client support and encouragement; consequently, a higher probability of sustaining positive lifetime passions and in applicable cases positive behavior change.
Life Force programming gently guides and invites all clients to freely get to know themselves first, and believe and love themselves through a wide array of individualized and group self discovery activities, written and / or interactive exercises, individual person centered / integrative counseling, through a wide array of movement and activity (as appropriate), or simply explore whatever a client expresses or appears to be happiest and most positive doing.
