The VBL program will help you uncover the hidden gems of your essential self and discover how to nourish these qualities so they shine bright enough to show you the way.




How Do I Know if Values Based Living Is Right for Me?

  • You want to feel empowered and confident in your relationships – at work and at home

  • You are ready to deepen the relationship with yourself and move deeper than self-awareness and into self-knowledge

Thanks to the incredible instructors, I think about my time in a much healthier way. Realizing my values has helped me follow through on the decisions that serve me and pass on those that don’t. This course was so beneficial and I would recommend it to anyone looking to make a positive change!

What sets VBL apart is Coreen's and Ali's authentic care for, and curiosity about, everyone that participates in VBL activities. They create such a trusting and safe environment that when they ask you something, that quiet voice in the back of your head speaks out without being self-censored. You know you are listening to the real you and not who you've come to believe you should be.

It was so nice to be able to reflect back on all that I've gone through and all the values I was frustrating to now see how far I've come and how I'm satisfying most of my values daily as I follow my joy and my truth without apology. It's like I had to have all my values shaken at once when I was pretending to be someone I wasn't in order to fit in. Which reflected to me how important my values are to living my best life and fully receiving what this journey has in store for me. Every time I complete a VBL Workshop or Sharing Circle I feel more and more uplifted. The 1:1 VBL coaching sessions are an even deeper dive into integrating all the learning from the workshops and my life path. Coreen and Ali are true embodiments of their values based business model. Thank you for the continuous opportunities for reflection and support in safe spaces!

I have attended three VBL workshops thus far and I must say that they have provided me with a self-awakening. Learning about my core values has helped me understand what triggers my emotional reactions, how to better handle myself when I am triggered, and stand confident in my decisions, despite outside pressure. To dig even further into better understanding myself, I enrolled in one-on-one coaching with Coreen Lawrence, the founder of VBL. These sessions are tailored to my goals and the topics are flexible based on my current needs. I always feel safe and un-judged during these sessions. I can honestly say that welcoming this knowledge into my life has allowed me to gain a better, more positive perspective on myself and my life. Highly recommend is you are searching to better understand yourself!

The Value of Values

Why Values?

Values reflect the seat of the unconscious mind. Values Based Living (VBL) teaches you to honour your values as pathways into discovering motivations that drive you at the unconscious level. VBL’s step-by-step processes guide you into the deep to find self- compassion and understanding. You re-emerge with new depths of knowledge about who you are and what you stand for. You will better understand why you do the things you do, and why you make the choices you make.
