From Our Clients
Lois’ expert guidance provides the essential ingredients to awaken you to the dimension of peace for true personal transformation which occurs not only within ourselves but in the world around us. Lois will gently lead you to come to experience who you truly are, which is infinitely greater than anything you currently think you are.
I began working with Lois after experiencing a serious professional setback. Her dedication to helping me see how my ways of thinking were contributing to my stressful work situation opened me up to broader perspectives which enabled me to envision a better and different future. Lois provided tips, techniques and practices which helped me transform old behaviors into new ways of thinking and being. Today, I am enjoying my work in a new and productive work environment where I am calmer and more light-hearted. My feeling of empowerment undoubtedly has made me a better leader, colleague, friend, spouse and mother.
