Since 1988, Alison Shore Gaines has guided over 5000 people to transform their lives with her Mindfulness-based Life Coaching, Revitalizing Cleansing and Mindful Eating Retreats.
Trained as a Holistic Health Educator, Life Coach and Yoga Teacher. Alison has developed a methodology of integrative life coaching and revitalizing lifestyle practices that empower one from the inside out.
The integration of deep mindful attunement, spiritual principles and healthy living gives one vitality, clarity and freedom from stress-related, self defeating patterns. These practices do not offer magic pills, but truly effective skills for lasting inner change.
"The tools I have found to be most effective for deep and effective change are:
Being present with and clearing physical tensions caused by emotional stress
Applying spiritual principles to day-to-day life
What and how to eat to increase a sense of well being
These practices are deeply nourishing to body, mind and spirit. In my retreats and coaching services, I guide my clients experientially to become their own healer/navigator. Experiential learning is the most effective path to change.
"Alison, you have no idea how much you helped my life. I learned many life changing practices to implement (eating healthy, mindfulness, chewing properly, eliminating coffee and other toxins) so I can improve my health and wellbeing dramatically. This the best course, seminar, or coaching education I have ever had. " M.M.

"I just wanted to tell you how immeasurably grateful I am to you, Alison. Before the cleanse, I felt as though my life was spinning out of my control and you helped me reclaim my power. You truly change lives and you certainly have mine. With all my deepest thanks.
I feel empowered and ready for a major change with, as you say, keeping in mind ease and grace. Thank you for all that you do. It was one of the most important weeks of my life." L.B.
"Thank you, Alison, for such a great cleanse program and supportive experience! All the careful thought, nutritional expertise and warmth you put into the program was much appreciated. I feel not so much like a "new person," but like "myself"--which is infinitely better. Everyone at work says I look 10 years younger!" R.J.
