“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” – Aristotle

It’s time you got better acquainted with the most important person in your life…

you

 YOU

What will you gain from knowing yourself?

  • Clarity about your values and goals so you’ll know when to say yes and when to say no.
  • Improved relationships.
  • Better leadership and coaching skills.
  • Greater overall success in life.
  • More peace of mind.
  • More self-confidence and a great sense of self-worth.
  • A life plan that’s in alignment with your true nature.

This is your invitation to the 20th Anniversary Retreat of Authentic to the Core where you can accomplish all the above in less than 26 hours.

Better relationships… more success…. more happiness…

Three things we all want in life.

But how do we get them?

“All wonders you seek are within yourself.” – Sir Thomas Browne

It all starts with YOU.  And having extreme clarity about who you are and what you want out of life.

Getting to know oneself better is why I started Authentic to the Core twenty years ago. For more information about the beginnings of Authentic to the Core see “Lori-anne’s story”

Since then over 1,000 people have participated in the retreat.  And as a result, many, many lives have been forever changed for the better.

So, what does “getting to know yourself better” really mean?

It means going a little deeper than “What’s your favourite colour?” and “What type of music do you enjoy?”

It means coming face to face with your deepest fears, your self-doubts, and your insecurities.  It means living in accordance with your values and embracing your higher purpose in life.

“There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.” – Aldous Huxley

Yes, it means stepping out of your comfort zone but don’t worry, you’ll be doing so in a warm, safe environment…

And the rewards will be impactful and life-changing…

You’ll be happier, have more self-control, experience less inner conflict and have a clearer understanding of what motivates you.  You’ll be grounded in your values. And the actions you take will be a result of what you truly desire (and not due to social pressure or influence.)

Plus, you’ll have more tolerance and empathy towards others and you’ll lead a much richer and rewarding life.

“There is no satisfaction that can compare with looking back across the years and finding you’ve grown in self-control, judgment, generosity, and unselfishness.” – Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Big claims, huh?

Don’t just take my word for it, here is what some of Authentic to the Core participants are saying about it:

“There is value in it for anyone, especially in our society today. If anybody wants to really go on the journey of knowing oneself and finding some true self-fulfillment this is one of the most important jumping off points.”
-Ryan Mullens, Senior Advisor, Talent and Development and Learning Services at Alberta Health Services

I now have more clarity around my relationships with people.  It’s improved my own coaching with clients.  I’m able to be more present, more aware.  It’s also helped me return to education which is essential to who I am.  I’m starting my Ph.D. this fall.  Plus, I’m back at teaching at the university.”
-Leah Taylor, Faculty at Vancouver Island University.

“If someone is considering Authentic to the Core, I would tell them to gain the maximum value, go in with an openness and leave perceptions of what leadership development looks like.  Be open to this because it’s strongly impactful.”
-Cindy Trytten, Director, Research, and Capacity Building, Vancouver Island Health Authority

“I can teach anybody how to get what they want out of life. The problem is that I can’t find anybody who can tell me what they want.” – Mark Twain

Are you ready to get to know yourself better?

To be more in tune with your strengths, your weakness, your likes and dislikes, your values and what you’ll no longer tolerate?

Not only will you get to know yourself better, you’ll improve how you interact with the people in your life.

“The only journey is the journey within.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

Are you ready to discover your deeper calling and wisdom within you?

If yes, I’d love for you to be a part of the 20th Anniversary Authentic to the Core Retreat.

Sincerely,

Lori-anne Demers
Founder, Authentic to the Core

P.S. To celebrate our 20th Anniversary, I will be attending all three (Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba) events. In B.C. and Manitoba, I will be co-facilitating with three very capable and experienced women, Kim Standeven, Cathryn Lecorre and Terra Baum. Details below.

The Authentic to the Core program is divided into three parts.  At the retreat, we focus on Part 1 and part 2 onsite and in person.  Part 3 takes place later in three 1.5 hour sessions via Video Conferencing.

Agenda – All three locations

Onsite – Friday evening to Sunday afternoon:

Part 1:  Remember Who You Are(Friday, Saturday);
Part 2:  Discover What You Love (Sunday)

“It is the individual who knows how little they know about themselves who stands the most reasonable chance of finding out something about themselves before they die.” – S. I. Hayakawa

The journey begins in a peaceful setting where together we use a process of ritual and metaphor, innovative ideas, and spirited dialogue. In this atmosphere of trust, love, and humour, we will focus on letting go of your ego, your role and your responsibilities to help you uncover your core essence and purpose in life.

During these days, you will expand your relationship with yourself so that you can step into your own opportunities for greatness – opportunities that are aligned with your true nature.  You’ll also discover how to align yourself with others and strengthen your relationship with people in your various communities.

By the end of the three days, you will truly be reacquainted with who you are what motivates you (and what doesn’t.)  You’ll also discover your core essence.  I’ve witnessed this many times and when it occurs it hits you viscerally and a light of discovery and knowing shows up on your face.

Video Conferencing

Part 3: Be True to Yourself

Part 3 occurs later as to allow you time to integrate some of the concepts and skills you’ve developed into your life.  Through our CORE ALIGNMENT™ Process, you will be building your vision, creating your mission and defining your milestones.

“Know yourself to improve yourself.”
-French Philosopher Auguste Comte

Authentic to the Core will help you discover your path in life.  A path that will be broad enough so it can change and have different expressions and at the same time narrow enough that you’ll know where to go (and where not to go.)  By the end of Authentic to the Core, you will have a clarity of purpose.  You will be renewed, motivated and invigorated to live a life in line with your values, who you really are and what’s important to you in life.
