There can be no way to prepare for a parents worst nightmare which is to experience the death of your child. On a summer evening almost 22 years ago, August 15, 1995, Avis Ottey was confronted with the indescribable. Returning to her Scarborough home from work, Avis walked into her family sanctuary to find the bloodied bodies of her teenaged daughters, Marsha and Tami. What thought, feeling, action or life is possible after this? Such a journey is not easily understood, unless you have been there in some way yourself. With this said, Rev. Avis is living proof that this journey is possible. She now graciously and powerfully shares aspects of her healing path through grief counselling, coaching and support, and her book: It May Hurt for a While. Through her powerful, compassionate and skilful work, Rev. Avis Ottey now helps those seeking to reconnect with life while journeying through grief.
Ageless Grace® works by re-opening the neural pathways that were created from the time you were born until approximately the age of 21 years old. Functional and cognitive skills were developed through typical childhood games, sports and activities that are now no longer “practiced” as adults. The 21 Tools of Ageless Grace® re-open those pathways and, equally important, create new ones by practicing functional movements we don’t already know how to do. Practicing, remembering and learning these simple skills allow positive results to come surprisingly quickly – much like remembering how to ride a bicycle after many years. These aspects of movement practice combine as the process of neuroplasticity, (the ability of the brain and nervous system to change structurally and functionally), and are vital to active aging and youthful function. Ageless Grace® is a profound body of work that provides amazing results in all ages — yet it simple to learn, playful, easy to do - and FUN! It may change the model of aging in America – and the world! - and change the quality of function in your own future.

Keda Edwards Pierre enjoys serving as a Personal Development Strategist whose experience spans close to 20 years. Her vibrant passion for holistic health is stoked by her observations of the growing need for life balance and long-term health strategies. Keda is no stranger to the hard work of developing effective strategies for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance. A Survivor of sexual abuse herself, she was forced at a very young age to learn and employ effective strategies that brought genuine health & balance. Her ability to connect with others and share these techniques prompted Keda to train as a Holistic Health Practitioner and to create True2Soul Network - an integrated service committed to Trauma Recovery, Life Transition and Personal Transformation. Keda, along with a network of professionals, now works with businesses, organisations, and individuals to foster true empowerment, health, and success through integrated coaching and support, online learning, holistic health products. Keda's awareness and ability to recognize the need for effective holistic health strategies has been strongly influenced by her diverse and expansive experiences over the last two decades - as a police officer, community advocate, motivational speaker and personal consultant. Keda is certified as a Usui Reiki Master/Teacher, works as an Intuitive Life Coach, Energy Healing Practitioner; and is trained as a facilitator and instructor. Working privately with clients as a consultant over the years, Keda has experienced and witnessed the real impact of energy healing in all areas of life: self-development, relationships, finances, career & physical, mental and emotional well-being. Reiki is an invaluable tool for self-healing and helping others. Lastly, and most significantly, Keda savours the role of "mother" sharing the privilege of parenting with her loving husband. She is blessed to be part of a loving closely-knit supportive family of mothers and siblings, a conscientious community-at-large, and a strong spiritual family. She is grateful for this vibrant and powerful support network - with whom all things are possible.
