Whenever I talk to people about what I'm doing, I always describe you as the real deal, Aliza. By that I mean you really embody everything you teach, and that shines through in the way you show up for every single session and every interaction we have. I feel completely seen and held when we share a space together (virtual or in real life) and that's a rare treat. I feel very blessed to be guided by you on this journey.
Aliza is pure magic. She shares herself and her journey so generously. Being in her presence inspires me to create a life so abundant that I'm bursting with love, because I want what she's having. Her deep, tender, fiery spirit is contagious and ignites everyone and everything around her.
