Hi, my name is

Brenda R. Bryan

I graduated as a Communications Designer from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. This education prepared me to be creative and innovative in all areas of Life. Now, I like to refer to myself as a Renaissance woman. After a short and frightening experience working under an oppressive system in the corporate world, I took my skills to the nonprofit world.

I joined the second wave of the Women’s Movement. After years of political activity, the disparity my community felt when our actions failed to create any change had me looking for a different means to create change. I read the book “Working from the Inside Out” by Sonia Johnson, which changed my approach to everything I did. From then on, I recognized the need for tools to change the world through the inner work that reflected the outer consciousness.

In 1986, I started a new direction as a student at Heartwood Institute. After graduating as a Transformational Coach, my training included Breathwork, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and extensive studies in personal development work. Again, I worked in the corporate and Nonprofit world, this time coming from an empowered position as a consultant.

My knowledge and training positioned me to be hired by Heartwood to restructure the organization and to help fulfill its mission as a healing vocational arts school and intentional community. I had the great privilege to interweave my passion for creating social and political change with the practical applications of my studies in group dynamics and Body-Centered Therapy to create a community that had the ability to resolve conflict through personal responsibility and practicing emotional intelligence.

After 10 years of intense community development work, I returned to my private practice. I became a real estate enthusiast, where I bought property and renovated, flipped, or was the property manager. During this time, I lived as a hermit, rebuilding my community and struggling to find a way forward that lifted my soul and fulfilled my creative side.

I have been very blessed to have spiritual guidance all of my life. Each major change I made in my life was given to me in the form of a dream, vision, or voice speaking to me.

Then, one day, I landed in intensive care, which saved my life, and I would be changed forever.

They had found a tumor on my kidney, a very invasive cancer. I really understood how “Spirit moves in mysterious ways.” That day, I knew how I was being cared for and that I was saved for a purpose. Then and there I would commit to using all my gifts for a divine purpose, living in gratitude for this precious life.

About

That day, I began praying aloud for guidance: “Please, Great Spirit, light up the path before me so I may serve the highest good for all.”

That prayer was answered by a seven-day lucid dream while supporting my spiritual community during vision quest camp. I was told to surrender, sell everything, and go solo. I was given yet another directive to follow. Life is short. No more hiding for me. (This story is so much longer; ask me. I love telling stories.)

I started the transition by rebooting my coaching with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, where I added Health Coaching to my list of resources. With the added training, I set out to find my place in a new city, community, and career, every step guided by a higher purpose.

I fully believe in a holistic approach to change.

For the last ten years, I have focused on the skills that develop our women’s economy. I support badass women entrepreneurs to Be Bold, Be Brave, and Be Powerful as the leaders needed to create a shift in all areas of living a purpose-driven life.

Armed with the passion to thrive and live a life full of vitality, I feed a craving for learning by building my best programs through training and education. I have been engaged with continuous training and coaches who support the development of my business and the businesses of the clients I get to serve.

My mentors/guides include Danielle Louise Ross – Intuitively Speaking, Dick Moser – Toastmasters mentor, Jay Fiset -Masterminds to Millions and LEAD, Kristen Schiffer Thompson – Rock Your Talk Mastermind, Tressa Yonekawa Bundren – Mastermind for Feminine Power, Patti Keating – The Entrepreneur Unleashed, Jennifer Diepstraten – High Ticket Sales, Mary Morrissey – DreamBuilders and Brave Thinking Mastery.

This is my journey as I continue to learn and bring cutting-edge training to my tribe.
