THE RISE              2016

The Rise

When I gather with women and share my greatness, passions, vulnerability and agitation I feel the vibration within so much more. Is the exciting vibration about my trip, meeting with friends, or riding the waves? As wonderful as these are, they stop and start and they are my creations. What about the SOURCE of this exciting vibration or this intensity.

My truth about mySELF is waking up my cells allowing the vibration that I AM to explode in my body. What about the chaos, my agitation, it’s negative isn’t it? If I express that then I will be shunned. Speaking my truth is negative and positive. It is who I AM. All of it allows for more aliveness in my body. It teaches me to OWN all that moves thru me. It’s not about other people ,places or things. It is all about what moves inside me. It teaches me to honour mySELF.

The source of the vibration that I AM lies within me. I know I have looked outside mySELF many times. I have made my agitation about something outside mySELF. Agitation is my gateway to experience more of mySELF. The saying “Know Thyself” has been around for a long time but I had no idea it was so full of expansiveness and beautiful vibrations.

The vibration is who I AM. I can align with it or not. Aliveness comes from all the choices I make to choose mySelf. Do I choose to BE my SELF, Know MYSELF, own it all and raise my consciousness a little more? Moment to moment I get to choose. The RISE is real. It is the building blocks of a new world. That’s why I am here to take part in raising my consciousness to a new level. Have a GREAT DAY!!!!!

Engaging and Awakening Others ~ Nov 20 to 24, 2017 Location in Nova Scotia to be announced This 5 day Engaging and Awakening Others experience is like no other. Holly Irons and Nancy Hanlon intentionally hold space, to allow the raw, unedited conversations that will invite each of us, to come face to face with the core family and community systems that have shaped each of our lives. The conversation is based in WEL-Systems context, which offers a safe space on all Logical Levels Thinking, the genius of the CODE Model as a gateway for the body and the lived process of Accelerated Evolution Consciousness and beyond. This call is for Women hungry and willing to engage their potential to RISE into their Greatness, freeing themselves from their lineage, as they own the power from within. In Holly’s words This Engaging and Awakening Others is a 5-day exploration into our past to face our habitual ways of thinking and fears within ourselves. Habitual ways of thinking and fears can lock down information in the body and create many health problems and decrease our ability to create the world we want to live. It may sound like catharsis but it is more about enabling the body to process information. For this there needs to be Safety, Science and the Sacred. Some of the story may be spoken but it is more about the impulses in the body and allowing them to move and process. The reason these five days are a Sacred time to me is because I have taken the time to sit in conversation with others listening to my body impulses, my intuition, my intention and my insights. This has allowed me to find the Safety within mySELF that I need to speak my truth. The Science is about how wise the body really is. The body can process 3trillion bits of information in one second. This device is brilliant. The thoughts can handle 5-12 bits of information. It is my time to let the body lead. Internal referencing allows me to process intensity, impulses, sensations, energy and information. This allows me to gain insights into my life. This involves deep listening, honoring and respecting my wisdom and imperfections. The family systems can run many strategies and these are important to explore and find new pathways to transform and create a new way of BEING. In Nancy’s Words The opportunity is simple: Show up for YourSelf. Choose to dive deeper into what holds you back. Invite and continue to trust the power of quantum science, a touch of the sacred and own your potential to stand in greater alignment with your purpose. The content of our lives may be different, and yet the undercurrent of misguided beliefs, limiting attitudes and enmeshed values is what continues to captivate most of us to the conditioning and habits of history. This conversation is not for the faint of heart, expect authenticity, truth, quantum processing and transformation at a Soul level. What to expect: • Individual and group processes that accelerate evolution • Family Systems & Nested Living Systems material relevant to the process • Old ways of being/living to fall away and create space for the new ways of being • Rediscover your own inner wisdom and willingness to lead by your uniqueness, that require you to own your truth in each moment and stand alone, • Awaken your own unique capacity and trust your intuition to shape family, work and community systems Do you hear the call, to move beyond your history, and the collective history of the status quo? Are you ready and willing to dive into the next wave of your personal evolution? Be the catalyst for others in your life, in your family, work and community? Your investment: $2500.00 Cdn includes 25 Cd set of Engaging and Awakening Others (Valued at $500 plus HST) For more information contact Nancy at or Holly at Register and payment for program contact Holly.

The Sacred Path

I awoke this morning to the sound of my breath. I felt filled up and a letting go. Many mornings I wake up to a busy mind and then breathe in and out.  Today  there is a strong thrust forward forward in my body. I know a lot more of me faces forward in my life. The tethers to my past have less of a hold and what I am noticing is a lot more respect, honour and joy of BEING mySELF. I AM CREATING my NEW WORLD.

In a culture where friends, money, homes and vacations are the abundance. Today my abundance is my experience of mySELF with great respect for my ever unfolding life. I don’t look at my past  and see mistakes and happiness. I look at my past and see my evolvement to who I AM becoming Today and Tomorrow with gladness in my heart, soul and body.

I remember a meditation teacher saying saying the world will change when people find  their true happiness within. As I grow in respect for MySelf I know true happiness is an inside job and the path is very SACRED.

THIS IS AN INVITATION to carve out some sacred time to allow to allow the body to lead.  I have been aware on my own journeythat when I set time aside to be with women who want to be present to themselves and each other,  I have been able to own and process unresolved issues.

When I process information inside mySELF my external world changes all by itself. I begin to choose  differently  and I begin to have different thoughts about who I AM. As I let go of the roles I play in this culturally conditioned life I open mySELF to become more expansive, creative, knowing and loving of mySELF.

This time is about triggering unfinished  business inside. We share some thoughts and own what moves inside the body. I believe Unfinished  Business affects our health. Holding  and armor patterns has decreased my immune system. So this is all about healing ourselves from the inside. I am delighted to be on this journey and want to be with women who are also interested.

This is a two day experience June 3-4. It can be from 9-5 or 12-8pm depending on people’s gardens and spring activities. Investment is pay it forward or a donation of your choice.

Space is limited to an intimate group of courageous women.
In Holly’s words:

I want to invite women to a 5 day program called Decloaking and Living Authentically. This is a big conversation about who we are becoming. There is science supporting we are more than mother, sister, teacher, farmer,doctor, pilot, wife etc. We are the very life force that gives life to our human body. These are conversations that allow us to go beyond our roles and education which can be very limiting. These are conversations that can create space in our bodies, expand our consciousness and allow us to experience our Beingness. Being internally referenced allows anger, hurt, resentment and chaos to come from within and be processed within. This allows me to be responsible for how I feel by letting my body feel the impulses and letting my body lead me. This way I can let my intellect listen to my body and make Choices that support me and I can always change my mind. The more I AM present to mySELF the more I can be present to others and accept them for who they are. When chaos fills my body I AM having an opportunity to process and open to joy and contentment from within.

In Raina’s words:

In 2008, with a back injury that wasn’t healing and a buried desire to truly be and love myself more freely, I stepped into a five-day program called Decloaking and Living Authentically. This began my powerful journey back home to myself. I came to see the cloaks that I had accumulated through childhood and into womanhood: heavy soul-suppressing layers easily acquired in a culture that so often fosters disconnection from Self. I was presented with the work of Louise LeBrun, information that continues to be my invitation to grow. Through this gateway, I relax into my body in an exhilarating way that allows for the processing of my past and the unshakeable arrival of who I am becoming… over and over again.
I’ve been deeply committed to my personal growth game ever since that wild first ride of Decloaking! Having engaged in and held space for countless consciousness-expanding conversations, I am passionate about fuelling cultural change that starts with personal evolution. Following an inner call to re-engage this potent experience, I am so excited to be collaborating with my mother-in-law and wise, nurturing soul Holly Irons. As part of this Decloaking, I will be offering yoga as a safe crucible space to rest the busy mind, integrate experience/emotion in the body and invite Spirit to fully arrive.

RYS Episode 91 with Louise LeBrun and Holly Irons


Today, we’re going to take a look at what it can mean to be a Cultural Crone…. to be that woman who has lived long and knows deeply; who has trusted the power of innocence and known intimately its great consequences; who has danced in the magic of creation and the ongoing responsibility of its expressions; and who now, is coming to discover the density of cultural coma and what it takes to penetrate the illusions of limitation of time, presence and possibility.

Drawing from the paradigm-shifting expressions of Maiden, Goddess and Crone as explored in the WEL-Systems® audio program on Sexual, Sensual and Spiritual Beings, we are about to step into a process of discovery that will take us to consider: As Crone, how else might I choose to be fully and authentically my Self? How else might I be the living permission for younger women to lay down the limitations of culture, history and habit… and live large! We hold the power to control, chastise and limit the women whose lives we touch… OR to let go of our own perceived limitations and pave the way for women to come to know themselves differently, deeply, authentically and now!

Reclaiming Your Self ~ Episode 98 ~ Cultural Crones: The Power of Permission

IMG_2146One of the great benefits that comes with the massive wave of Baby Boomers moving through time, is the inescapable presence of women in their full expression as Cultural Crones (women 50+). If the future of the world is in the hands of women (Kofi Annan and many others share that view), then these Cultural Crones are the vanguard of the requisite Space to make way for women to fully engage!
