Authentic
Greatness I

Authentic Greatness is an intense immersion designed with only one thing in mind: to bring out the highest and deepest, the absolute best in you, so you can live your life with meaning, passion and purpose – the way you were always ultimately destined to live it. This 8-day retreat shows you how to experience your natural genius on a daily basis. Imagine waking up every day fulfilled, satisfied and living with real purpose.

Prerequisite: No Ego

Uncover your infinite potential and reveal your innate genius

We are all born with greatness, a genius capacity that knows itself as infinite potential. Due to life’s traumas, hardships and negative conditioning, we bury that greatness deep inside – we cover it over so completely that we can no longer access it, or we even forget about it completely! This 8-day day retreat shows you how to experience your natural genius on a daily basis.

  • heal every bit of negative conditioning that restrains us or keeps us locked in fear, self-diminishment or pretense

I Have Not Experienced Another Migraine Headache

For as long as I can remember I suffered from migraine headaches. From about the age of 15 or 16 years old I would get regular debilitating headaches that would sometimes last up to two or three days long. Around the age of 20 I found a medication that helped relieve the pain and I was so excited and thankful for that.

I wasn’t thrilled about the idea of relying on prescription medication to help me but it was much needed relief. As life continued I became more and more frustrated with the fact that I had no real control over this plaguing issue. I could start to see the triggers of the headaches but I also knew there had to be some much deeper reason for the migraines. I knew that spending three days exerting myself at a high altitude or that it was simply my monthly cycle wasn’t the only reason I was having these insane headaches.

So I finally approached an acquaintance that happened to be a Practitioner of The Journey and asked for help. I surrendered to the unknown… if I could have “figured it out”, certainly I would have done so by now. So we sat down for probably an hour and a half together doing this process called The Journey. I was gently guided into my own body, accessing my own infinite body wisdom, to a place where I had unknowingly stored the block that was creating these migraines.

In an instant, I was shown an old cellular memory that had created a fear so deep inside of me, which as life unfolded, played itself out as debilitating migraine headaches. The Practitioner that I was working with led me through a process of deep and true forgiveness finally freeing me of this blocked cell pattern. I could not know the depth of the work done that day until the weeks and months would pass.

You don’t wake up one day and know that you are free from migraine headaches. So I left my process that day in November 2006, feeling a deep peace in what had taken place but not really sure if anything “happened”. Months passed….my normal triggers happened….migraines did NOT. All I can say is that since that day in November of 2006, I have not experienced another migraine headache. It is the miracle I was hoping for my entire adult life.

I am still in so much gratitude for this healing, this freedom. I’m not sure if someone who’s never had a migraine before can truly know the immensity of what has happened for me and my life and for those who have watched me suffer, but I will tell you it is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you for letting me tell my story. It is good to be reminded of the gifts the Universe has for us and I am humbled by the power to heal ourselves! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The Journey Assists Children, Adolescents, As Well As Adults

The Journey assists children, adolescents, as well as adults, gain in self-confidence and self-love and often decreases their symptoms of depression and anxiety. Whether a child is in “traditional” psychotherapy, on medication, or has just been affected by “normal” life events, The Journey is definitely an effective and valuable tool to help him, or her, become more resilient and improve well-being!

Freedom from the Old “Story”

I had lived with no awareness of life inside of me. I stuffed my emotions often not knowing what I was feeling. There was lots of anxiety and depression and little self-esteem or confidence. I spent much time reading self-help books to understand and analyze it – yet there was little change that occurred for me and it kept me attached to the same old “story” that continued to run my life.

Then after experiencing a major loss I became very depressed and felt that there was no longer anything meaningful in my life. At the same time I was also facing the emotional pain I was holding onto around my relationship with my mother. I did not want to see her or even think about her for a year and a half! I got in touch with a part of me that knew there must be a way to bring about real healing. I was ready.

In my first Journey Session I experienced true forgiveness. In this powerful step-by-step process I moved through emotions, released the stored pain and naturally came to a place of peace. It was like a miracle for me! I felt an enormous shift and the depression lifted. From this healing that had taken place within me, I was filled with compassion and love for my mother and went to see her – as I hugged her I could truly say “I love you”. Our relationship was renewed and it is so amazing that I no longer feel “triggered” by her! I just feel love and compassion naturally – free from the old “story”. My perception about it has changed and it has brought me peace in the deepest part of my being. This is enormous – that one journey process did more for me than the many years I previously spent in support groups!

Because that was the most profound and lasting inner work I have ever tried, I attended the Journey Intensive Weekend Workshop in Ottawa, Ontario in August 2006. I learned how to do journey work and I continue to use these practical tools in my daily life. My friends have noticed a change in me and have told me that I am more confident and free. I experience more joy and peace than I ever have and I am becoming more empowered and free to be who I am! Transformation continues to take place in many areas of my life.

I had a desire to become a practitioner to continue deepening in my own healing and facilitate others in their healing. While doing the 45 case studies I gained experience working with adults of all ages and with various issues relating to depression, unworthiness, abuse, fears, and phobias. I received accreditation as a Journey™ Practitioner in March, 2008 and have set up a practice in Perth, Ontario (Canada).

Having experienced moving beyond the old “story” that I had, it is particularly meaningful for me to work with those who want freedom from specific anxiety/fears/phobias, abuse, depression as well as self-confidence and self-esteem issues. I feel honored in guiding others with gentleness and compassion to open into the wholeness that is already inside them and find their own inner wisdom. No matter what else you have tried there are possibilities – somehow something takes place on a level deeper than our minds can comprehend allowing real change and healing to take place. I am so blessed to have found this Journey work.
