About Brenda Gold

When MasterClass: Beyond Lipedema started in October 2018, I had just lost my husband, who was also my companion, helpmate, partner, best friend of 42 years. Joe’s death was unexpected and entirely preventable.  I was going through a complicated grief and mourning, feeling completely devastated and unsupported by family. With only a few friends who reached out to me. I was feeling very alone.

I had also felt unsupported by the medical community with my own diagnoses of PTSD, lipedema, lupus, heart arrhythmia, and unexplained episodes of rhabdomyolysis. Through the MasterClass I found friends who demonstrated their love and caring for me in very amazing and tangible ways. I found new practices to help move me forward physically, psychologically, socially, spiritually. I began to heal and recover.  I have been able to establish supportive relationships with my current medical doctors and health professionals that continue to assist me in living my life to the fullest.

I found Releasing, a process we used throughout our time together, particularly helpful. When our MasterClass program ended I joined a Releasing teacher training program. I have now been coaching and helping others in “letting go” of emotional blocks and flowing into greater freedom. 

My physiotherapy credentials BHSc(PT) from McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario led to a registered public and private practice for over 20 years. Additionally, I have certification in pastoral counselling and Releasing, and have taught yoga, and QiGong since 1982. I have graduate studies in Western religion, theology, and cultures, and in Taoist philosophy through the Universities of Toronto, (Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies) , Shanghai (Traditional Medicine University), Athabasca (Alberta) University, and Laurentian University, (Sudbury,  Ontario).

I look forward to sharing Releasing, a process of letting go and healing with anyone who would find it helpful.
