“Having attended your 1 day retreat, I highly recommend any women rider, seasoned or new to participate in this event. It was to share other women’s perspective about riding particularly as it relates to personal growth. I did my trip across Canada & back (over 10,600 kms). I did it & I am glad. It changed my life forever. Nancy Barnes Please share” Nancy B.

“”The retreat offered by Liz and Ila allowed me to spend a great thought provoking day with like minded women who I wouldn’t have met otherwise.  I learned a lot about what I can learn about myself through my riding as well as how riding effects my life and makes me who I am.  We also learned the same about others in the group and while our lives and backgrounds are very different our riding effects us in similar ways.  Liz and Ila made us feel welcome and were knowledgeable facilitators who offered us a peaceful day to share and learn.  It was well worth the 2 plus hour drive to attend.”  Judy F.

“I attended Free To Be Me right after I’d been in a motorcycle accident that claimed the life of my bike, and seriously shook me up. I didn’t know if I’d return to biking, as I felt catapulted out of it and left on the side of the road, literally and metaphorically. Liz, her co-facilitator Ila Sisson, and the other women at the retreat helped me to reconnect to my biker spirit, even though I wasn’t ready to physically resume it just then. I spent the better part of a year sorting myself out before taking my place in the saddle again.” Alison D.

“I had such a great time spending time with other women all of whom are quite exceptional in their own way!  The retreat was a great way to “be me”. The intimacy of our small group made it very conducive to express feelings and thoughts in a safe place as we share our experiences both physical and spiritual in our motorcycles.” Ana Maria B.

“Liz Jansen is a women who understands women, motorcycling, but more importantly, ‘women and motorcycling’. Liz and Ila (Sisson) are a powerful partnership in creating an outstanding retreat experience. Through these retreats and her insightful book, Liz is generous enough to share her knowledge, wealth of experience and perspective with other riders. As a 50 years young, 3 year rider, learning how to overcome obstacles and stereotypes is a big part of my motorcycle experience. Liz has been, and will continue to be an integral component of ‘my ride’.”  Paula W.
Ila Sisson

Ila is a holistic healer, photographer, teacher, counselor, author – and rider – with a thriving healing arts practice in Orangeville, Ontario. She is the founder of  Circle of Change and is active in the community, facilitating positive change through her work with individuals and groups.
