Isabelle Simard.....“I would absolutely recommend this course....Best 'me' time anyone can give themselves. Liza builds instant trust in the group and she is the most gentle guide. I felt so supported in my journey and i feel healed.”

Cat Gibbs....."For anyone who is ready to open to something a little bit different in their healing process, a bit of mystery perhaps I would definitely recommend this course.....there is definitely something magical about healing in a group. Liza has a quiet strength and wisdom with an incredibly diverse tool box for facilitating healing and inner growth. She has a strong intuitive sense of what might be needed at any given moment by an individual."

Justice Vezina....“Liza! She is an amazing teacher, so kind and gentle but can really dig into the crap that's holding you back in life so you can move forward! Liza was so supportive though out the process of this course and she helped me out so much! 

I'd recommend The Art of Transformation to anyone looking to improve their lives! This course is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who wants to learn, grow and heal. Liza is one of the most beautiful human beings I have ever met. You can tell that she really knows what she is teaching. She is kind, intelligent, patient, selfless, strong and so many more things. Liza is the real deal, she is an amazing teacher/healer.  Yes! Liza can guide you into seeing the things that are holding you back so that you can build a better life for yourself.

The constellation work was seriously ground breaking in this course. I still don't quite understand how it works but it is a powerful healing tool. Participating in the course has not only positively changed my life but it has improved my families life as well! Thank you so much Liza!"

Art Of Transformation.......are you game?

So last winter a brave group of 7 amazing women gathered in Invermere to embark on a 10 week journey of transformation together with me! Always in awe of people's trust in me, and trust in whatever divine guidance within them draws them to sign up for my course, I excitedly anticipated the magic that I knew would unfold! And indeed it did!

I've run this course 6 times now, with 6 different groups of people and it just keeps on getting yet more and more powerful. I guess it has something to do with the morphic field (Rupert Sheldrake) which each prior participant helps to make even stronger, but from the first evening of this last A of T I just knew the transformations would be tremendous. These brave heroic women dived in deeper than ever before from the very first evening, sharing so deeply with each other it even took them aback! What I love so much about facilitating this course is how readily we are to open our hearts, when a sacred safe space is created, and to genuinely want to support the growth and healing in each other.

As a workshop junkie myself for many years I am no stranger to the strange synchronistic phenomena that takes place when one or more are gathered with like minded intent to heal. Almost miraculously another participant holds up the perfect mirror to reflect to us the very same issue we are grappling with, or to speak the the sharing circle many words of wisdom from the heart are shared mysteriously helping another.........

And we all held each other through the inevitably painful process of shedding old skins and rebirthing into the new! None so profound or intense as one courageous young woman Justice Vezina who has given me permission to share her story and experience of transformation with you below.......

I never cease to be humbled by the strength of spirit and ability we have to survive adversity and not only that but to strive to THRIVE! Justice joined one of many children who had to endure her parents painfully divorcing and it drove her to find relief in the intense feelings in drugs and alcohol at the tender age of 13. Ever since she battled low self esteem and had sadly been in rehab a few times. As an alcoholic she knew how serious her binges were when she fell off the wagon. Which she did after one evening at A of T when the topic of self love and body image were discussed. This tender topic popped open everyone in the group one by one, like popcorn POP, POP, POP! and emotions were raw and exposed. Tears flowed and we all united in the sad state of much women struggle to love and nurture their bodies and self image.

I knew to check in with Justice next day, however sadly I was not quick enough to head off at the pass a drinking binge......Justice was already in hospital when I got a hold of her. Just new to Invermere and with no family or long term friends around she was scared and alone. 

I take my responsibility to hold space for each course participant VERY seriously so with a bit of gentle persuasion Justice agreed to me hopping in the car and zooming to the hospital. Where I witnessed all that is wrong in our shaming our culture is towards people overwhelmed with life, with emotions too big for them to contain or process on their own and who turn to other means of numbing and coping. I found Justice behind a curtain in a lonely hospital bed....and my heart bled for her. How she needed love, non judgment and above all else compassion and empathy. My heart opened to this brave young woman as she told me her story.........

I have always believed love conquers all and indeed it did that day.......she began what was to be a week of transformation almost beyond belief, and beyond her wildest dreams! I drove her to a detox house in Cranbrook where she bravely dried out and was able to rejoin our group the next Friday night where we used a powerful group process to transform deep family entanglements for and with each other. It involved role play but goes way beyond this and the evening was full of phenomenal synchronicity where everyone let go of old baggage that had been holding them back for a very long time.........

Justice let go of feeling responsible for her Dad, and handed back to her Mom symbolically the torch of alcoholism. She was lovingly supported by the rest of the group. She literally looked different the following Friday as did all the group.So much so we all commented on it in amazement!

I am delighted to say Justice flew home the week after the course finished and has been sober ever since! Here's her own words to describe her experience of transformation.......

Maybe it will inspire you to dive in............Art of Transformation in Golden begins 17th October and in Invermere 19th October!

Justice :~  "I knew the course was something that I had to take.

Going though The Art of Transformation has helped me understand and manage my addictions. I feel more grounded and better able to love myself after taking this course! 

I loved how we all got to chose our own personal intention to work with throughout the 7 week workshop. This intention is a beautiful, positive thing that I will always carry with me. I liked that every week was different and that we were supported in a group of people who were all working towards transforming something in their lives.  

I've grown a lot as a person. My relationships with my parents and with myself are much healthier. Taking this course was an investment in myself and it was so very worth it. I didn't know what I was getting into but a transformation has truly taken place in my life. I totally fell apart taking this course but Liza helped me put all my pieces back together and now my life is truly better than ever!

Liza! She is an amazing teacher, so kind and gentle but can really dig into the crap that's holding you back in life so you can move forward! Liza was so supportive though out the process of this course and she helped me out so much! 

I'd recommend The Art of Transformation to anyone looking to improve their lives! This course is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who wants to learn, grow and heal. Liza is one of the most beautiful human beings I have ever met. You can tell that she really knows what she is teaching. She is kind, intelligent, patient, selfless, strong and so many more things. Liza is the real deal, she is an amazing teacher/healer.  Yes! Liza can guide you into seeing the things that are holding you back so that you can build a better life for yourself.

The constellation work was seriously ground breaking in this course. I still don't quite understand how it works but it is a powerful healing tool. Participating in the course has not only positively changed my life but it has improved my families life as well! Thank you so much Liza!"

UPDATE JULY 6 months on........

"Hi Liza

So it's been 5 months already since I took the Art of Transformation course! I am really so thankful that I found you and took part in this healing program. I'm still flabbergasted about the constellation work! It was so amazing, I'm still feeling the effects and it has truly helped me so much. You're such an amazing women and I hope everything is going great for you in the mountains 💗 💗 💗 Manitoba is treating me well and I'm doing really awesome. I've been sober since the program and mostly succeeding in a healthy lifestyle 😊 I am heading down to Costa Rica in November to get my Yoga Teacher Training, so I'm very excited.  Well anyway, just wanted to say Thank you so much again from the bottom of my heart, people like you make this world so much brighter.

Thank you thank you thank you

Peace and Love

A Taste of Bali

It's Monday morning, but you have no meetings to attend, no family members to care for; today all you must do is find your center. You start by attending the daily morning yoga class, with a warm sea breeze passing through the open walls. After a breakfast of fresh organic foods grown on site, you gather with your newfound community and settle in for the playful work of transforming your life. 

By the time the afternoon rolls around, you've had a breakthrough or two and you're ready to explore the town of Sukawati, cruise the expansive beaches moments from the resort, or fully unwind with a spa treatment. Having met your own unique desires for the day, you reunite with the kind faces of your new friends and enjoy a sharing circle, a delicious meal of local flavor, and an evening meditation. As you rest your head on the soft pillow that night, you feel more connected to you, the real you, than you have in a long time.

Phoenix Rising!

There’s a quote from a favorite little book of mine that has been coming to mind for me lots lately……it’s from Illusions by Richard Bach……

“You teach best what you most need to learn”

This truth really is what has inspired the whole of my life’s work, especially my coaching work and is the inspiration behind my Art of Transformation Course. I brought to it all the learning, wisdom and self-help tools that have helped me on my path in life. My first big learning came from the kids with emotional and behavioral problems I used to work with back in the 90’s. My role was teacher to them but really they were the ones who taught me well……..taught me about how each and every one of us no matter how ‘dysfunctional’, no matter how much we act out in life due to our inner chaos and struggles, is worthy of being positively regarded, of being unconditionally loved. They inspired me beyond words these youngsters who had the balls to be angry, to dare to act out their hurt and pain, to go joy ride and glue sniff to get their highs and escape their pain ~ for a short while. They were surviving as best they knew how.

And really who was it who had emotional and behavioral problems? Them or society’s judgment of them? Weren’t they simply trying to let everyone know of their inner pain in the only way they knew how? I believe so.

I didn’t realize why I admired them so much til recently when on my own inner path of transformation (yes, I walk my talk and my head gets held in the fires of transformation more than any of you who are brave enough to engage with me! How else would I have earned the right for you to put your faith and trust in me as so many of you have, and continue to do.  There’s nothing I haven’t first fully tested out on myself that I won’t guide you through holding your hand. If it doesn’t work on me then it’s chucked out! Fast! And when I am not on my game I take time out to re find my balance….as I have done recently. My integrity is vital to my work…… pay me to show up and be fully present with open heart to your pain and my guarantee to you is to do so )

These young warriors had the courage to let their pain, and trauma, come out. Albeit destructive at times, but at least it was being given expression which is healthy! I have become aware lately of the true extent to which my early childhood was completely and utterly suppressive of my innate organic nature. To survive I literally had to stuff my fear, my anger my sadness……..each and every feeling except the ones acceptable to my parents and teacher, and well, everyone really! I was conditioned to be a ‘good girl’ to please others and gain their approval. I am only now beginning to contact those places within my body where these suppressed feelings have been stored for 48 years! And it’s been intense. I get now why the solar plexus chakra is where we hold our power, our self-esteem. Those old Indian gurus who named the chakras did know a thing or two. I have been discovering the ‘fizzy explosion feeling’ in my tummy is actually my anger, my stuffed suppressed power and in all honesty it scares the shit out of me still. But I know my work is to befriend it, to listen to what story it wants to tell me about how terrifying childhood was a lot of the time. And how it’s safe now to let it have expression. 

This past year has seen me walk a path of purification I had no idea was possible to walk…..and this time my prayer had been a fierce one! What happens when your deepest prayer is for freedom, inner liberation and enlightened realization? First and foremost all your prior ego strategies of survival must be stripped away, so the illusion of the personality and psyche gets shattered into a million little pieces. It’s not pretty to stare head on into the shadow and reflect fully on the destruction and pain its caused to self and others. Then all attachment to everything dear and clung to is also stripped away, leaving you……in the dark night of the soul and with no idea of who you really are! In the times of surrender into this void of feeling a nothing and a nobody I have amidst the terror, experienced small glimpses of the peace that I imagine those enlightened masters reside in all the time. Then all too soon its gone again! Leaving me with the realization that a mediation practice is called just that for a reason…..because it takes practice and dedication! And coming back to the meditation cushion over and over again, practicing mindfulness, watching my thoughts race and holding onto the knowledge that I am not my thoughts is the thread I hold onto that is pulling me out of this trap of the mind.

So…… case any of you are wondering if I am on my game still, despite my own life disintegrating and being transformed into something new, then yes…….depends on what your perspective is on growth and transformation and what you are looking for in a guide!

Yes I am back on my game in that I am able again to be fully present to others pain and sit with open hearted compassion whilst they find their own healing movements. And yes, the shifts just keep on getting deeper for people……maybe because I have more depth of compassion from my own inner journeys of transformation of late? Who knows……it’s a mystery to me how all this works. Because in truth, what I offer to people comes through me, is not of me. I simply show up with a desire to be of service in some way.

If you just want fluffy nice happy transformation then this maybe isn’t the place for you to come seek support……the path I offer is one that at times is ruthless in its pursuit of freedom, and there are no guarantees as to where you’ll find yourself. But one thing is for sure……I’ll hold you in a container of trust, deep respect and love. And I’ll bring every ounce of compassion and honoring to your courage to dare to dive in with me. To see what is on the other side of pain and suffering when all resistance to what is is let go of.

Maybe it will birth you into bliss, freedom, peace…..enlightenment! It’s my prayer for you as it is my prayer for me.

Anyone brave enough out there to sign up for The Art of Transformation this fall? I have….signed up that is! Been doing the art of transformation all my life really!

Hope you may feel the inner calling to join me in the fires too…….that phoenix awaits you!

Emotions - The Gateway to Healing

Many of us view our emotions as a hassle, an obstacle to be wrestled with, to go into battle with. But what if they offer a greater possibility? What if emotions provide the gateway into our very own essence; a doorway into enlightenment even? Now that's a new perspective that’s worth exploring, right?

What if our emotions are actually our own essence crying out to us, inviting us to come back home to ourselves? What if they are the vehicle to carry us back into the love and wisdom that is the best part of ourselves? What if the enlightenment you are seeking is right here, right now, in the very core of your worst emotions?

Brandon Bays talks about a life changing experience she had in the early 1990's whilst with one of her enlightened teachers. It went on to form the basis of the mind-body therapeutic healing work for which The Journey™ has become renowned worldwide. I’d like to share it with you here.

On answering a question from a woman about what to do with unwanted emotions the enlightened teacher simply advised her "do not move, stay completely still" if you stay still and open right into the core of any emotion you are feeling, there you will find the peace you are seeking. Peace is waiting right in the very heart of your torment. Stay still and discover what remains when all anguish and torment has been welcomed”. Brandon watched the woman drop through layers of emotion and hit what looked like complete and utter fear of annihilation, which she eventually surrendered to and then the most extraordinary unexpected thing happened. Brandon watched as peace swept over the woman’s face and she began to weep. She'd found the peace that exists right in the heart of everything. Brandon was baffled! After all, hadn't we been conditioned to run away from emotions, to overcome them, and control them ~ but never to go directly into the heart of them? She decided to give it a go herself and discovered that in the very core of any contractive emotion is indeed the very liberation and peace we seek. We just need to be fully present to it and to let go of the story. When we let emotions just pass through us, we find ourselves opening into a peace, a grace that is omnipresent and always there beneath our emotions, our story, waiting to welcome us home.

Is it time to befriend your emotions? Is it time to come home? Would you like the key to unlock the infinite within you?

The role of a Journey™ Practitioner is to skillfully guide you through and past any fear, struggle or resistance that naturally comes up when we step beyond the ego and go into those scary emotions. The ego, or monkey mind, loves to have something to struggle with and likes to create a story, which we can get attached to like our life depends upon it. As practitioner, my role is to encourage you to drop the story and dive right into the heart of whatever emotion is here and to relax and surrender to it fully. If it’s peace you seek; are you ready to dive in?

Stone Circles and Ancestors

I'm back in the land of my roots, springtime. Daffodils abound as I enjoy hiking some of my favorite old haunts in the Lake District where I lived for 8 years before emigrating to Canada. The little baby lambs are hoping about the fields and a beautiful white swan came and joined me by the edge of ullswater lake yesterday at Howtown. 

It actually stopped raining too and the sun came out for long enough for me to enjoy Castlerigg stone circle, near Keswick and the incredible views from it over the lakeland fells. As I stood marvelling at how ancient these stone circles are and wondering about how many ceremonies took place on that spot over hundreds of years it struck me as to how the legacy of our ancestors leaves the same imprints for generations to come, only in what may seem invisible ways to those with untrained eyes. 

Science is now backing up with genetics the fact that we contain within our DNA the memories of our ancestors, the impact of all they endured in their lifetime, passed down to us often in quite mysterious unknown ways. How many of us have any idea how much we are being influenced by the unfulfilled desires of our Grandfathers and Grandmothers? Are the inherited diseases we have running in families really just a fate we have to endure, or could it be untangled as easily as discovering the origins of heart problems in a family being tracked back 3 generations? Could the unbearable grief of a Great Grandmother loosing her child to diptheria or TB be the reason for this legacy of heart ache that continues to this day? Family Constellation work would seem to say so.

It never ceases to amaze me as to how powerful the "knowing field", as we call it in the Constellation world, is in revealing what is going on in a family system. It is as if our ancestors are just waiting for an opportunity for us to be open to listen, to see, to hear, to be shown what is out of harmony. And just as effortlessly healing of many generations can take place through this incredible work. We all want to heal, we all know how to come back into balance, however sometimes we get ourselves stuck, something happens and we freeze, and the event becomes crystalized in our bodies and we need a gentle nudge from outside to help us recalibrate.

I am 2 sessions into 10 weeks of Rolfing with a wonderfluly intuitive practitioner Darren Harris ( who's been helping me unravel stuck trauma in my body while I am back in the UK and I was marvelling at the similarity in our work. He comes in via the body and helps unravel the messages hidden in the miofacia, and my approach is via the family soul. I listen to the hidden messages stored in the stories you and your ancestors have to say and help you unravel their secrets. So you can live life free of entanglements with 'stuff' that sometimes wasn't even yours. 

Rolfing session one was all about breathing........session two about grounding and feeling my feet firmly on the ground. Already Darren's spotted my tendency to be tight all along my right this from my own childhood trauma (induced forceps delivery set me up for being cautious in life!) or could I also have been influenced as a child growing up with anxious parents who lived through the Blitz in London during world war 2? Mum rememembered the pattern of the lace table cloth from underneath the shelter of the dinning room table, before her and Nana were evacuated to Dorset to stay with friends. And what about the story of my Dad who had to jump over a wall for cover when a bomb hit a neighbours house on his way home from school. I have no idea of the terror this would have evoked, but maybe my body remembers?

On my constellation training with Francesca Mason Boring a fellow student from Germany set up her constellation with her Grandparents who suffered greatly in WW2 and whom she was deeply entangled with (i.e. a part of her was still trying as a 50 year old woman to soak up their pain and suffering) and my body reacted in ways completely beyond my intellectual comprehension. I couldn't move from my seat, I was internally shaking with a fear I had never felt before and deep in my bones I felt my life was at stake. I've never been more relieved when a constellation ended! Tt was all the proof I needed to know I wasn't someone wandering lonely as a cloud, but a part of a family system that remembered..........

And what, you may ask is the healing balm for transgenerational trauma passed down the generations?..........LOVE! Pure and simple. Love Conquers All and returns everything to harmony.

I hope if you are reading this that you will explore the potential of family constellation work to help heal any disharmony you may be experiencing, and besides that, constellation work will change your perception of 'reality' after experiencing and witnessing some of the other worldy phenomena that can happen spontaneously through this amazing work. Just as effortlessly as my muscles releasing during a Rolfing session and my posture returning to its original perfect blueprint!

Gotta love it - the mystery of life!

What Is Holistic Coaching?

A holistic approach to life coaching differs from other forms of coaching in that its’ main focus is in looking at how the emotional & mental, physical and spiritual aspects of an individual all come together to influence and make a whole. At Munay Holistics Liza’s approach is to find integrative solutions that address issues that are detrimentally affecting your mind, body and spirit ~ to find your path to wholeness. Holistic coaching recognizes how powerfully one aspect of our being affects the other and that so often solutions will only work when a problem is addressed on all three levels. We all know that when our spirits are low and our emotions are all awry, our physical energy levels are down and our thinking is muddled. A Holistic coaching approach focuses on finding integrative solutions that address issues that are detrimentally affecting your mind, body and spirit. 

Take Beth for example, despite her taking medication from her doctor, her migraines weren’t easing and it wasn’t helping her to cope with the big decisions she was facing about how unhappy she was in her relationship. A simple symptomatic approach to Beth’s physical problems doesn’t take into consideration what is going on in her emotional and spiritual life. Prescribing medications for her migraines in isolation may give Beth some temporary relief however it doesn’t get to the cause of the problem. An integrative approach to Beth’s migraines takes into consideration all that is going on for her in her life. The root of her migraines is quite likely linked to stress over her inner dilemma and unhappiness around her relationship and what she should do. Inner frustration and anger puts a stress on her liver, causing her migraines to flare up.

A more holistic approach helps Beth explore the root of her unhappiness, helps her look at and clear out any old scripts and beliefs that may be impacting on her relationship and preventing her from finding the right solution. Methods to help her deal with stress result in her feeling less overwhelmed and natural remedies to support her liver start to reduce her stress levels resulting in less migraine attacks. From this place she can explore her next step having made the inner connections between her mind, body and spirit - she can now follow her heart. Through Journeywork and EFT Beth discovers old beliefs she took on about her being unlovable when her Dad left home when she was 6 years old. She realizes she has been subconsciously pushing her boyfriend away, expecting that he too will abandon her at some point. With this old pain from childhood flushed out Beth now can let in and recognize the love that her boyfriend has had for her all along and her relationship transforms into one of happiness. Her migraines vanish completely. What began as a confusing mess is transmuted into an enriching life experience.
