A single mother of 2 teenagers, Alex has been involved in Sales and Customer Service for over 25 years. It all started at the age of 9, when she enrolled her little brother and two other friends to open a lemonade stand! It was a cool summer day and they earned over $10 … AFTER EXPENSES! … (Hey, at 5 cents a cup on cold day, THAT WAS A BREAKTHROUGH RESULT!) Since that cool summer day, Alex has consistently achieved these sorts of results in her life. She believes that if you are truly passionate about your dreams, impossible and unforeseeable results are possible and will occur.

Whether it’s lemons or life, the elements of success are the same.

Passion, strength, relentless effort and an unwavering commitment to excellence has been, and will continue to be her guiding principles. She is truly committed to improving the quality of life for those she encounters and aims to impress on each and every human being on the planet that THEY CAN HAVE IT ALL!

Alex has over 12  years of experience and education in personal training and development and has been trained to lead intensive leadership programs.  She has coached people in different areas of business and life and her "no-nonsense" approach has helped others to produce unpredictable and unforeseeable results in the areas of life that matter to them.

Having overcome huge obstacles in her business and personal life, Alex's sense of relatedness to others allows her to deal with people with ease and increased effectiveness!

She has created and lives a life of her dreams and in her "DREAMBOOK" workshop you will be given the opportunity to explore:

  • What does it look like to live a life of your dreams?
  • What are you dreams/goals/ambitions in life?
  • How do you create a future worth living into?
  • How can you begin to live a life of your dreams TODAY?
  • What steps can you take to fulfill on what is important to you?
  • The difference between "going after" what you want vs. "chasing" what you want

You will leave this workshop with tangible tools and an increased enthusiasm for life along with a plan to begin to make all YOUR dreams come true.

Susan, the founder and President of InStyle Vacations, is always on the lookout for the next new travel trend, and it’s a mission that takes her to many destinations around the world. With an open mind and up to date research on market trends she looks for and assesses firstly, something unique in a hotel or destination; secondly, the experience it can bring to the clients; and lastly, the overall culture and diversity of the entire vacation providing memories of a lifetime. “Everyone wants to know where the next big destination will be and they want to be the first to experience it. Plan a family reunion, be pampered at a luxurious spa, plan a surprise romantic getaway with your own private beach, plan a picnic lunch in Paris, perhaps an African Safari…… There are many incredible opportunities with new places to be experienced.”

Susan loves the excitement of new places, making new friends and experiencing different cultures. She loves to get away from the tourist spots and learn about a destination from a local’s standpoint.

After returning from some time off to raise her children, Susan experienced first hand the change happening in the Travel Industry. “People were traveling with a purpose. Clients want an experience not just a vacation.” Susan had a vision to supply this growing demand in the Travel Industry and so, with much motivation and passion InStyle Vacations was born.

Susan has been in the Travel Industry since 1984 and during her career has worked for some of the largest, well known and respected Canadian Tour Operators. In these companies she gained a great deal of experience in many different capacities: Operations, Sales & Marketing, Product Training and Area Sales Manager. Susan also has a wealth of experience in the retail area of travel working as a full-time Senior Travel Specialist with Cianfarani Travel. During this time she was influential in growing the Honeymoon and Destination Wedding division for Cianfarani Travel and coordinated very successful information events, media events and tradeshows in collaboration with various Tourist Boards and Tour Companies/Hotels. Susan has been the recipient of many prestigious top sales awards from various luxury hotels and tour companies throughout her successful career.

Life Philosophy: Sometimes in life you need to make mistakes in order to learn and move forward.

 

We as women often forget that we are divine creatures, each with the potential to create life. Centuries ago we worshipped the goddess’s of our past and women were looked at as being the closest to god. Here you will be reminded, and learn to amplify, the unmistakable power that lives inside you, and remember your deep innate magic and divine beauty.

Here you will remember that you are a Queen.

  • Find out what it’s like to radically express yourself in a way that is free from constraint, apology or doubt. Learn the tools to express yourself in a manner that is true and authentic for you, without compromise.
  • Create and cultivate rich meaningful relationships. Discover what your creativity can tell you and why the way in which you love is your most powerful asset to success in any relationship
  • Learn to intentionally and consciously pursue your passions and follow your delight. Learn how to make fun and pleasure a regular part of our daily routine.
  • Explore how to powerfully represent and ask for what you want out of life and be able to make powerful requests. Come and discover what it takes to open yourself up to abundance and actually learn the skill, and art, of receiving.
  • Explore your body and look at all the internal conversations and thoughts that get in the way of you fully enjoying your physical self, sexuality and passion.
  • Learn how to weave your purpose and passion throughout your life. Get in touch with your dreams and start living and creating them now.

The key to living a fulfilled life lies in the degree to which you honor your truth and capital ‘S’ Self. This retreat will be the trampoline for you to start living your dreams now.

Art of Self Care and InStyle Vacations Present

Goddess Revealed

Transpersonal therapist yogini healer Diana Bourel and Susan Barone, president of Instyle Vacations , have joined forces for a specially -curated women’s empowerment workshop. The Goddess Revealed provides a dynamic template for personal growth, where creative potential and spiritual renewal conjoin with the natural curative forces of Castel Monastero, an 11th- century Tuscan village now transformed into a Leading luxury spa resort where “ time bows to the presence of the soul”.

The art of the healer is this:
To help identify what needs healing, what is broken, what hurts, what is ready for breakthrough and to find exactly the right medicine, internal setting and pulse for the mending to occur.
In the multi-layered world of transformation, there is no blanket formula that will work for every individual. That is why there are different paths, and I have walked many of them and found that eventually, all the spiritual portals lead to a sacred core. I celebrate this diversity.
My passion lies in accompanying people through the vital, scary, chaotic and raucously beautiful world of transformation. I help bring words and understanding to that process, connecting the seemingly parenthetical and ephemeral experiences of spiritual understanding to everyday applications for more fulfilling lives.
For over 20 years, I have worked with human consciousness as a transpersonal therapist, training in a number of different modalities. I saw validity in each, espousing none is the one and only way to spiritual freedom. Using what I learned, I created a multi-modality therapeutic toolkit I call The Art of Self Care, a path of sustainable wellness that includes yoga, meditation, intuitive healing and spiritual consulting.
I am a cross-certified yoga instructor (hatha yoga, hot yoga, Asthanga, Body tuning therapeutic yoga) and a transpersonal therapist. I use past life work, rebirthing, bioenergetics, kinesiology and other shamanic techniques carefully gathered in the USA, Canada, the Caribbean, Vietnam, France, Ecuador and Thailand to help you solidify your deep and resounding friendship with yourself and the greater world.

The “ Goddess Revealed”

A women’s transformational pilgrimage to wholeness

Living in the present is a skill, the vortex of power between past and future. In the present, we can unlock our potential and pacify past experiences. In the present, we sit in the birthplace of all creation.

Today, the world speaks about a return to the Feminine. The Goddess Revealed workshop is a timely attempt to explore the modern world and our place in it. Through the archetypes of mythology, we meet the characters- or Goddesses- who enact our own challenges, triumphs and life events on the universal stage. Through their stories, we can identify the big themes in our own lives that weave through all of the many roles we play in society in our families, our communities, our workplace, our governments, and our tomorrows. We see how the fragmentation of the Great Goddess mimics the broken pieces in our own selves as daughters and wives, mothers, sisters, lovers, companions,
healers, friends, mystics. Through the rich spiritual psychology of the goddess stories, these female archetypes share with us their secret wounds so we can heal our own. They reveal their hidden treasures, so we can unearth ours.

They prompt us with their wisdom, their voices and visions. Their stories make it possible to hear our own and provide us with vital clues about defeating our demons and resolving our own life conflicts.

They gently nudge towards love, towards wholeness, towards peace.

Like the grapes of the Chianti region we’ll be visiting, the fruit of the vine becomes the nectar of the Gods only under the winegrower’s steady and constant efforts. Interactive exercises, journaling, meditation, yoga, transpersonal work, rebirthing and past life work will provide the tools to chart a course toward greater personal freedom and knowledge as the Goddess energy nudges us toward health, peace and forgiveness, the building blocks of sustainable wellness.

Exploring your great mind and true heart in the Tuscan folds of history is both an opportunity and a challenge. You’ll be asked to dig deep and fly higher. It’s the invitation you’ve been dreaming of for a lifetime. I hope you’ll join us for this fragrant adventure of Becoming more fully your wonderful self.

Founder, Art of Self Care
