Karen Sue-A-Quan, Thao Choi & Cecilia Toyotoshi

It is the start of a New Year and it is time to hit a refresh button on your life! 

Introducing LIFE CHATS 2022. For the next 9 months happening once a month on a Friday morning or evening session, we are bringing to you a program that is unique and special.  After feeling divided in the last few years, LIFE CHATS aims to collectively unify and connect amongst differences.  Through rich open discussions, partnered explorations, LIFE CHATS is a special opportunity to be part of a real authentic and non-judgemental group where relationships flourish and grow with love, kindness, compassion and understsanding.  What you may not find in real life, you will likely find in LIFE CHATS!

LIFE CHATS creates an opportunity for you to learn, to self-reflect about your own experiences, and build beautiful friendships in an intimate coaching and soulful environment. We are all on this journey called Life, and this unique program is created with the intention to re-examine the way we view our own personal lives and examine our greater purpose within our community and in this world.

LIFE CHATS is created as a labour of love between three coach facilitators.  Each have their own personality traits and their own unique energy fingerprint.  Together, they offer a breadth of experience, of varying skill sets, come from different professional backgrounds and provide a synergistic presence to the LIFE CHATS community. Below is our offering and we welcome you to ask any questions to any of the facilitators.

I loved the Sisterhood from Day 1 (unfortunately our own LIVE session).  I was so nervous attending the first session, but there was this beautiful cloud that enveloped me and I felt loved, no judgement and being able to express my thoughts and fears.  For me, it was “A NEW DAWN” – exploring my feelings, discovering the inner child: to understanding my Soul and Ego – what is my inner truth and heading into Life Transitions to not be afraid to take that leap of faith.  My best word to describe Life Chats?  Self reflection – Truth.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Love you all.


“I met Karen by chance one day. It felt like I knew her even though we had never met. It was uncanny that I remembered her face from a random picture I saw online! I was at a bit of a crossroads in my own life and in my conversations with Karen, she really seemed to understand and relate to where I was coming from. I was also drawn to Karen because she had such a calming and soulful way of interacting with people. I decided to join Life Chats because it felt like a safe and comfortable place to start to explore my own meaning and purpose in life. Karen, along with her co-facilitators were amazing at sharing their knowledge and experiences as well as allowing us all to open up and be authentic without judgement. It was a great experience (unfortunately, it had to be virtual) and recommend this to anyone wanting a safe space for introspection. I look forward to learning more from Karen.”

In my opinion, you have by virtue of hard work, wonderful insights and intuitiveness, created a perfect vehicle for healing for the women called to join your program “Life Chats”.  All of us who were guided to join in have received SO much.  There are so many struggling people in the community – young, older, immigrants, entrepreneurs, business owners, some stay-at-home moms – most have been overwhelmed in day to day existence, AND THEN COVID HIT!  How interesting, the timing!  And this virus as well as all that this year 2020 has brought up to the surface – well your timing couldn’t have been any better.

Addressing your inner child was totally on point.  I feel personally that you might want to refer to this subject on an ongoing basis.  The Inner Child woundedness informs much more of everyone’s journey than was previously thought and it must be really loved, nurtured and healed in order to elevate the soul.  The world is shifting rapidly – but your course is helping your friends/clients stay the course in love, letting go/releasing the old in order to embrace the new and adapting.  I wish you could expand it somehow to bring it to more who are struggling. Keep on with the good work – you’re an awesome team!!


Life Chats has been life changing!  The topics we explore together as a group are even more enriching as we open up and share our life experiences.  Life Chats gave me the strength and confidence to work through some painful memories.  I am grateful for the genuine connections and safe space.
