Emily Pereira - The Quest To Unlock Your Creative And Spiritual Passion

Emily Pereira is an author, international retreat leader, and women’s coach, specializing in helping women call in heart-thumping-passionate-I-got-your-back-no-matter-what love. Her favorite moniker from her clients— is “Relationship Whisperer”. After 13 years of intensive and extensive spiritual training and exploration, she has amassed a treasure trove of astonishing wisdom and powerful practices and used these to heal her own love story, and transform her life. Over the years, she has helped hundreds of women do the same. After 32 years she finally discovered the storehouses of dormant creative passion that brought her to the magic inside her and led her to write, sing, play guitar, paint, and dance burlesque. Most people have no idea how connected the creative and the spiritual really are. Tapping into this dynamic duo can trigger a cascade of powerful changes so that you can transform past resentments into gratitude, and cultivate real confidence.

Lance Essihos

As an experienced veteran with adversity, Lance has faced some of life's most difficult challenges. Grinding his way through the hockey ranks to traveling the world as a bartender. Through his personal battle with drugs and alcohol for well over a decade, the tragic loss of his brother to suicide followed by the great loss of his father to cancer only a year later, Lance realized he had hit rock bottom. In the darkest of days, he made a promise to himself that he would create a new life, one that would make an impact and inspire the masses, leaving the world in a better place than he found it. Lance has made it his mission to facilitate the message of positive change through adversity and encourage people to see the light through the darkness of life's worst moments.
