I’m very careful and cautious in the guides I choose. Having lived in Bali and traveling to countries all over the world, I have come into contact with a lot of healers and various healing modalities. She is the real deal!

Isabella is compassionate and careful in her approach with clients, every contact has been different. She brings in so many modalities of healing and holds space for you to just be your true, authentic, amazing self. She brought out a confidence in me, that was dying to get out. Showed me the true aspects of myself that the world needs to see. She is a gift and I’m so grateful she came into my life in this capacity.

Isabella has proven time and time again, to be a true light worker. She seamlessly pulls the strings of our inner potential and spirituality together. From the moment I first spoke to Isabella until now, I have not only heightened my inner voice and intuition, but I actually LISTEN to it. I was certainly not looking for a mentor, but having one truly made me realize how inspiring and powerful human collaboration is.

I can’t thank Isa enough for the impact she’s left on me in this life, and what feels like thousands of past lives. True modern day magic.

“Many years of therapy scratched the surface of my pain, but this program laid it all bare, and through connection to a loving, unbiased facilitator, I am finally ready to be me, with a capital M.” The benefit of this customized female empowerment course “Sacred Femininity Activation” was just what was needed, at just the right time for the absolute best reasons. Isabella guided me free of childhood traumas that had lingered for 57 years.

This is what the “Sacred Femininity Acitvaiton Program” has done for me. I will be forever grateful to Isabella SJ Kanso for shepherding me through the darkest and lightest of times in my customized program.

Isa you really taught me a lot here as your yoga teacher. You were my mirror and biggest mentor for my confidence and what else I need to improve on. It was a challenge seeing you in class with your death scares, but now I know what else I need to work on and improve.

I’ve been to many therapy sessions in my life and have seen many psychologists in the last 7 years, but for the first time in my life, I’ve felt like I’ve truly taken my first step to healing myself with only my first session with you.

You’re a Humanitarian. I see strength in you, you have a beautiful mind and you’re definitely a diamond in the rough. I’m proud of your efforts and contributions towards the betterment of society. It’s not an easy task and does require an enormous amount of mental toughness.

Isabella is a natural healer who is gifted with a special awareness and a beautiful depth. She used her gift from a pure heart to help minister love, light and healing to my body. Her intuition is amazingly accurate and brings things to the surface so that you can experience deeper healing physically, emotionally and spiritually. She also helped me to be aware of where I needed to focus my thoughts.

I truly appreciate and love your energy and support for women empowerment. I used to be scared of leading, but after following you page and seeing how you build upcoming female leads, it gave me courage to give it a shot and to have fun. That’s what really hits home and gets me all teary. Just an amazing soul you have and it makes me so full.
