About Lise's Journey...

My name is Lise. I'm an artist at heart with a degree in Psychology. I am a counselor, published author & mindfulness / emotional intelligence educator with many years of experience teaching kids and certifying adults.

When I was in my twenties, I wrote songs in French and I had the opportunity to travel and share my songs with audiences from around the world. This was exhilarating but also emotionally demanding. I began to ask myself "what is true success and lasting happiness?" The story goes like this...

Once Upon a Time...

 there was a young girl named Lise who was certain she was on the most direct path to Mount Happiness. As she ambitiously climbed up towards the summit, she found approval, recognition, respect, money, and excitement. Surely, the peak of Happiness was not much further…


Unfortunately, the higher she climbed, the more out of breath, anxious, and confused she became. She asked herself "I am lost? Where is Happiness? Is my compass broken?" Fear began to consume her. She became paralyzed. As she lay face down on the cold, unforgiving ground, Lise became aware of this neurotic need for more, more, more. Standing still had always been unacceptable to her. She needed to keep moving to feel good, but she was exhausted. Lise deeply craved rest and comfort, but she believed getting to the peak of Mount Happiness was the only way she could prove to herself that she was worthy, that she was enough.

Linda F. Ensley, MBA. 

"Lise Villeneuve's approach to teaching mindfulness is unique and effective. With her Mary Poppin's type bag of tools, metaphors and examples, Lise has been able to help seniors learn the principles of Mindfulness that they can apply to their lives. For several, these tools have been life changing. Teaching how to control emotions, reduce chronic pain, and cope with the kinds of issues seniors face on a daily basis, has made a measurable impact on the seniors at the Edmonton Seniors Centre. If you have a chance to hear her speak or take one of her classes, I encourage you to avail yourself of the opportunity. It can change your perspective and your life." 
-Linda F. Ensley, MBA. Assist. Executive Director of the Edmonton Senior Centre at the Edmonton General Hospital

"I have been searching a long time for a program that would take what I was learning myself - how to be a more conscious adult - and explain it in a kid friendly way. Lise has created that program! I was so excited when I found it! My eight year old son loved it! The follow up stories and activities really drove the concepts home in a meaningful way and allowed my son to experience hands on learning. As a mother and an early childhood educator, I would highly recommend Lise's program to anyone with children. It makes the concepts of mindfulness, being in the present moment and learning about feelings and emotions fun and easy to understand."

"We brought Lise in to facilitate an on-site workshop on emotional literacy for my staff. We are a not-for-profit before and after school care program, and we do have some children in our care who have anxiety and who could use more coaching on emotional regulation. Lise was able to provide us with great insight, and offered us some techniques to use in helping children to calm down, and to help them identify what they are feeling. Her workshop was very interactive, which was great. She was wonderful to work with, as she asked me what I was hoping to get out of a workshop, and tailored it to my needs. I also wanted to invite parents to the workshop, as I felt it would be beneficial for them. Lise was very open to that as well."
