Mentorship Program Outline

A 4 hour, 6 recipe cooking class with samples. Recipes include all organic mixture of raw, cooked vegan dishes. This is not a ‘vegetarian’ seminar but all the recipes happen to be vegan and the focus is on inspiring people to eat a broader base of plant foods.

Program Application

The premise of this course is that Nature dictates what and how we are meant to eat. Understanding this provides context for the deluge of nutritional information while decoding the discord amongst authorities, theorists and gurus in the nutritional space.

Graduates of the Jiivala Holistic Entrepreneurship Program

Before the Jiivala Holistic Entrepreneur Program I was thinking that ‘I am 66 years old’ – Since the program I have been thinking ‘I am only 66 years old!’. I am waking up each day filled with the excitement and energy to accomplish the buried dreams that were reawakened in the program.

Jiivala has given me the confidence to take charge of my life and my destiny. Before Jiivala I was a student seeking guidance. Under Sherry Strong’s mentorship I found my calling and am now excited working toward my dreams creating my own business and seminars already. Jiivala graduates lead with their hearts, teach from experience, and will empower positive change in the lives they touch.

Sherry is a person of great and astounding warmth, integrity, insight, depth and humour. As a teacher and human being, she illuminates and is illuminating. She challenged me to step so far out of my comfort zone without me fully and truly realizing that I was doing it.

I originally took the program for the cooking, thinking the business portion was just something I’d have to endure. I quickly realized, however, it was quite the opposite. For the first time in my life, I was excited by the prospect of turning my passion for writing into a career. In one sentence, Sherry Strong not only educates, she empowers.

I had the pleasure of experiencing Sherry’s gifts both as teacher and public speaker during my time at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. From the moment she walked into the room she had an energy about her that was truly unique- both radiant and grounded.

What I got through Jiivala was clarity in lifestyle design, and the know-how to create a solid future on my own terms. I learnt how to give from a place of strength so that my work can make a positive impact in the world

Lara-Dawn Stiegler

Jiivala taught me that success as a Holistic Entrepreneur comes from my mind, body and spirit operating in harmony with one another. I learnt that knowing myself shapes my holistic venture, my brand or my truth relates to how I translate this knowledge in the market place.
