As you all know, I'm passionate about passion. 

But I didn't always start out that way. There was a time when I was confused about what I wanted to do with my life. I felt lost and insignificant. Instead of traveling, I was simply wandering aimlessly, searching for meaningful work and more importantly, PURPOSE.

How did I find it? 

In 2008,  read a book called the Passion Test while in New York. And it has changed my life since. Last February of this year, I became a certified Passion Test Facilitator because I wanted to bring out the passion of Filipinos. We are the most loving people I know and I wanted to help people find work that they are passionate about.

My dream is to create a community of people who make a living doing what they love.

Last May, I created a retreat called Passion Play at The Circle Hostel in Zambales where people of all ages and background, just like you, can come together and discover your passions which is the first step to living the life of your dreams. It was a success and this what a few well-known bloggers have to say about the retreat and workshop:

"Lois helped me organize my life in under 3 hours, and her process has helped me (and all of us) identify what truly matters most to each one of us."
―Alessa Lanot of Life After Breakfast

"Through the Passion Test, I’ve found that what I thought I wanted the most in life wasn’t what I needed to start living my ideal life today. I’ve found that I spent a lot of time on things that I wasn’t really passionate about."
―Jen Horn of Nomad Manager

"The Passion Play re-sparked my imagination to start thinking of who I am and what I want to be. It reminded me of the questions that I once long ago put aside for whatever reasons. With Lois’ help and her series of activities, I was at least moved to stay longer, to be stronger and to fight harder. We’ll always run into brick walls, but we HAVE to find ways around it, because if we really want something badly, we don’t just give up."
―Cheryl Golangco of When in Manila

Finding your passion is not supposed to be serious so we've added the element of fun. The retreat is broken into parts like workshop, surfing, yoga, art- and did I mention surfing? This is not your typical retreat where only the speaker does the talking. You will be called on to actively participate- every step of the way!

3 You'll be part of an awesome group of Passionistas

Once you know what your passions are, it's important to surround yourself with people who are equally passionate! That's the secret to speeding up the realization process. This is the best venue to meet and network with passionistas just like you!
