Self-reflection2 Front

You got to know your WHY!

This is a workshop to help you to focus where you are today and how you got here. We will talk about what is at stake, what moves you, and what blocks you.


Get clarity of what your life’s purpose or mission, values, principles or personal beliefs are.

Are you satisfied? Why or why not?


This is a 3-hour experiential workshop with a lot of movements, conversation, self-reflection, feedback and acknowledgment. There is also music, meditation and worksheets to identify your “here” and the truth of your present.

At Avant-garde we keep the workshop deliberately small because we want to get to know you. Like, for real.


Your choice of available Toronto workshop dates:

April 18- 9:30am-12:30pm

April 18 – 2:00pm-5:00pm


All sessions are held at: Intuitive Centre, 796 Eglinton Avenue East, Toronto M4G 2L1


Gain insight to your Courage, Vulnerability and Truth towards your life’s possibilities.

 

Hope you will join us so we can hear your side of the story.

Transform Your Life!

It has been truly a year of transformation for me.

Right now, I am so excited to share to everyone about my new co-creation!

I was invited by Transformation Publishing to write a chapter of a collaborative book project called Transform Your Life! Book 2. This book will feature experts offering tools to inspire transformation in readers’ lives!  At this same time, the book will feature authors who have overcome tremendous obstacles and through them found meaning and purpose to not only transform their lives but the lives of other.   If you are familiar with the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, this is similar in that it will feature different writers.

So, I will be one of the authors that will contribute a chapter!

Part of the reason I am excited about this project is because I know the long term impact that this book will have in the lives of those who read it. It’s mission is to help people from around the world by spreading the word to anyone you know who can benefit from this book.

The creators-Natalie and Joeel Rivera believe that we all have within us the power to create whatever reality we want, to transform the lives of those around us, and leave a legacy behind. And I believe the same way that this book will empower you and others to live to your fullest potential and dare to dream bigger, while making a difference to those who witness your transformation.

All my life I thought I will never be part of something amazing like this. Eventhough my life has been a wild journey, it was a totally different experience for me when I was encouraged to tell my story and my transformation. I owe most of it from my husband, Peter, who told me I got to share my voice. I never believe him which actually means I really didn’t believe myself. This transformation led to create The Avant-garde Company and since then I came clean to who I was becoming….and so it was time to tell my story.

Here’s the glimpse of why I was invited to be one of the co-author when I wrote this blog: The Fierce Me:

“I am a young 39 years old woman, a Filipino immigrant of 13 years in Toronto, a childless mother for 10 years, an alluring wife to an Irish-Canadian, grammatically-error fiercely courageous leader, a child-like spirit with a freedom fighter soul  and a soft-spoken harsh realist who “always” sees the possibilities.”

Be part of this book’s movement to help people transform their lives. Simply spread the word.

Process Front

Do you really know how to “process” your inner “self”?

 

Catching yourself doubting if you’re making the right decision?

At times we have to hold a difficult conversation. This involves balancing values and (work) ethics while responding to the pressing matter.

 

You can now have a regular check-in with a professional Avant-garde coach and learn to understand the impact of your words and actions, without shame, guilt or fear.

 

Just pick up the phone and one of our coaches will help you to explore and appreciate the truth of the matter.

 

You have the power to choose when coaching happens.

  • You will have 5 sessions of a 30-minute each in this package that you can use any time within 2 months for $199 over the phone or Skype.
  • For 2 months you can call between Monday-Saturday around 8:30am-5pm for 30 minutes coaching. If you have any quick question, drop us an email at or call us at 647-777-8438.

Discover your Core

 

Discover your Core-Front

We are made of layers, like an onion. We’re not always sure how others perceive us, and we hope it’s consistent with how we think of ourselves. We sometimes are unsure who we are and this is because we are like an onion. You and I are made up of layers without truly knowing what is in our core beings.

 

We at Avant-garde is exploring this journey through is a self-discovery session to help you get to know all your layers. Carefully, we will peel your layers to have a look at what’s beneath.

 

You feel somewhat ready and want to try the peeling process by identifying your layers. You are brave enough to have this conversation and take mini-steps in your journey.

 

This is a delicate process and at Avant-garde we are sensitive to that. You are a brave soul to get started.

 

Here’s what we will do during the self-discovery:

  • We will meet face-to-face for 2 hours and Mahal or Elena will walk you through gentle thought-provoking questions to label the “layers”. As a result you will understand why you act the way you do during stressful situations.
  • We will identify the triggers of your fears and how you can make courageous steps and deal with your fears.
  • Just a thought of warning: I will speak to you like no one dares to! This is to evoke your true creative, resourceful and whole being.

 

Find your Authenticity, Courage and Hope to uncover your possibilities.

Active Listening – I am of value, I am significant!

With all our relationship, we’re asked to be present and show active listening. What does it mean?

Image

Active listening is placing value to the other person.

 

For those holding a leadership role, it’s all about letting go of your ego. It’s not about you, be present in the moment to listen (meaning be silent) to allow a space for others to truly express themselves without fear. Your staff just wanted to be heard which actually means they want a moment of recognition for who they are as a worker and as a person.

 

Leaders in the workplace craves for the same value. They wanted to be heard to place value to you.

 

So, how to bridge their needs to yours towards a common goal? It’s all about letting go of your ego! True to any relationships.
