Annette, in the truest, deepest part of her being, is an explorer, always looking to uncover the deeper Truth. She began taking personal growth and development courses which opened her to see herself and others in a whole new light. Annette experienced first hand, the depth of healing that occurs when able to gently and lovingly find a way back to Source. After an extraordinary experience in 2002, Annette’s path became clearer when she was introduced to Brandon Bay’s book, “The Journey”. Passionate to learn more about this remarkable tool to deepen her relationship with herself, and to share it with others, Annette became one of the first certified Journey Practitioners in Canada, having taken her training with Brandon in the US and the UK.

Sharon Sedgwick

Annette NolanSharon first heard about The Journey while searching for an emotional healing tool for her pregnant clients.  For more than 25 years as a doula, childbirth educator, and woman’s workshop leader, Sharon noticed many women who had everything it takes, physically, to have a healthy joyful birth, yet emotional blocks, deep seated fears, abuse and childhood trauma often caused unnecessary complications.  After her first Journey Intensive in the fall of 2003, Sharon began using The Journey processes with her clients, and immediately began seeing a huge difference in their births; and their lives. She is among the first Certified Journey Practitioners in the US having completed The Journey Practitioners training in 2004/05 in the UK with Brandon Bays and is also a Certified Visionary Leadership Coach & Presenter for both The Journey and Visionary Leadership.

Through her experience as a businesswoman, childbirth professional, marketing and graphic design, Sharon has found that ordinary can create extraordinary results and bring their greatest dreams to fruition, if they can just get past the fear and limiting beliefs that hold them back. Finding and using tools to help people transform, excel, and reach their full potential, has always been one of her greatest joys.

One of Sharon’s greatest joy’s is creating a safe and open environment for all to open into who they really are in love, joy, freedom and self-empowerment.  She especially enjoys leading women’s retreats/workshops and red tent sessions and is currently writing her book, “Graceful Pregnancy.”

Colby Tootoosis
