Points Of You Canada—Hello Points Workshop—Global Academy Launch. By Liz Pearl

Introducing the dynamic duo Canadian Leaders:

Meri Har-Gil and Keren Baranes Abu are the co-founders of the Canadian Chapter.

In their own words, they highlight this journey of discovery—perhaps, their calling.

What does this card mean to you?

“We are excited about the next chapter in our journey…the Canadian chapter is growing and we are offering more workshops locally, and more participants are becoming certified.  It’s an honour to participate in the genesis of the POINTS OF YOU Academy—now offering four levels of experiential training. The global company is continually expanding and we are thrilled to be a part of the exciting adventure.” -Meri and Keren

In April I had the rewarding opportunity to participate in a dynamic workshop training day, promoting innovative resources that are currently implemented worldwide in a variety of creative ways. For more information about the company and their training tools visit the website Www.points-of-you.com or Facebook page.

I truly enjoyed the multi media and multi-sensory experiential process, and it is very much is in sync with workshops that I facilitate in creative / expressive modalities. Certainly, I’m glad I had the opportunity to participate, and I look forward to crossing paths with these wonderful women, again sometime.

It came as no surprise to me that I found the workshop effective: I’m a very visual person, and am inclined to expressive media for sharing meaningful experiences. In fact, I have already utilized the Points of You resources for storytelling and supporting others in sharing and writing personal narratives and legacy writing @PK Press. These tools are absolutely “user-friendly” in so many transformative ways. I urge coaches, educators, therapists and facilitators to preview their awesome appeal.



“We create innovative tools and training for professional and personal development.
A stimulating exploration that sharpens our senses and opens up new possibilities.”

Our games are important because they offer everyone:
A moment to pause and an encounter –
To take a moment’s time out and look at life from a different perspective. Pausing allows us an intimate, authentic and non-judgmental encounter with ourselves and others.

An expanded viewpoint –
In every situation there are infinite points of view. The real challenge is to succeed in seeing viewpoints other than those we are familiar with, and to look at things from a new angle. Focus for the next step –
To form new insights and define actions for the future. See more
