Lori Rempel – Self Love Expert – Excellent Workshop

Like you, Self Love expert and co-author Lori Rempel has seen Self Love defined numerous ways over the years. Is it selfish or foundational? Is it arrogant or necessary? Does it bring out the worst or the best of someone? Can anyone choose and succeed at loving themselves or is it only for the chosen few?


With years of coaching, speaking and real-life experience, Lori's message is simple and powerful: Self Love is the foundation of successful relationships, it is available to everyone, and it works. Real, authentic Self Love brings out the best in you and everyone around you!

Lori is known for her practical style of coaching that turns complex into simple. She’s helped people around the world find peace, clarity and self-worth through easy-to-use tools and techniques. Lori shares with clients and listeners that Self Love is a moment by moment choice and not about age, colour, race, gender or circumstances. Self Love is for everyone, every day.


As a speaker and teacher, Lori’s fusion of real-life stories and authentic techniques connect her with her audience at an intimate, intense and individual level. She has presented her Self Love message to a variety of groups and has taught numerous workshops, including her first weekend retreat last year. Lori is also extremely excited to be a co-author of a soon-to-be-released book titled In the Spirit of Bliss.
