I am passionate about spreading positivity and empowerment by activating energy circuits, using the breath to still the mind and tend the heart, sitting in quiet stillness - simply being. intenSati has been the tool, which brought forth and continues to bring forth my best self.
intenSati is a practice where we move our body to create energy and joy. We use our breath and words to send messages to our body, we change our physiology, we accept our current circumstances, yet stand in our power and find our voice to be the person we were meant to be. Knowing that we are enough, we have enough and all we need is within us to be great, feel great, and do great.

Many years ago, Liz found her Heartsong in the way of entertaining. She searched for several years to see what her purpose was and when she finally unleashed her Heartsong to sing and entertain, her entire world changed.
She entertained many with music and humour and after several years thought she should pursue something “serious” as she put it. She decided she would coach women to find their Heartsong, the desire in their hearts to follow their gifts and share with the world.
To further her “seriousness” along she became a hypnotist. Now a hypnotist, for fifteen years, she decided she would specialize in regression and health hypnotherapy for those who would like to explore a past life and to see what health issues in this life might possibly relate to another life.
Along with her passion to help others discover who they really are, with her “serious” side, she continues to be a passionate entrepreneur, author, entertainer, and publisher of a Good News Newsletter .

I am passionate about color and art! My earliest memory of being called an artist is when I was in Kindergarten. My teacher, Ms. Irwin, wrote in my report card that I have an artistic flair. After earning an Honors Degree in Fine Art from the University of Guelph, I also studied Interior Design at the University of Manitoba and Japanese Silk Dying at the Alberta College of Art. I’ve taught art and worked fulltime as an artist in both Alberta and Ontario. I recently designed and built a new home on the edge of a forest on my farm. My home includes a studio and gallery. In 1995, I created a large collection of paintings called COSMIC CONNECTIONS that were exhibited in Ontario and Germany. Currently, I’m working on Part II of this series.
