Tracking the Impact of Finally Free™

Finally Free provides a platform for self realization and unconditional love. 

We help people discover who they are and what they really hunger for in life by moving beyond negative thoughts, limiting beliefs, and unruly emotions

A Sun that Lights a Thousand Suns

The mission of Finally Free is to give participants the tools to experience the unique beauty that lies within them. We way-show love and return our participants to knowing that they are, and have always been, whole, complete, and so very worthy. 

We help others find their unique inner radiance and to shine brightly in all situations in life--not just those around food. Because when we radiate love, positivity, and joy into the lives of others, they cannot help but radiate it into the lives of those they meet--and the impact becomes exponential. 

We become a sun that lights a thousand suns.

When I signed up for Wilma Shaw’s “Finally Free” workshop, I was suffering from heartburn almost every day, felt sick and tired after most meals, and found myself at the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life. Other than cutting ties with emotional eating, I really wasn’t sure what to expect from the workshop, but I am so incredibly glad that I enrolled. Within the first week, all of us started a 30-day detox—truly clean eating without any sugar, processed foods, breads and starchy foods, dairy, fruits, caffeine, or alcohol. The most enlightening part for me was how addicted to caffeine I was, drinking coffee, tea, and soda ALL DAY without even realizing it!! I started and continue to drink 96 ounces of water every day (in place of caffeinated beverages), and my skin looks better than it has in years. In addition, cheese was my go-to food for every meal, and it was making me sick!! And I was able to look at labels to realize how much added sugar is in everything, so I have become smarter at buying decisions as well as re-engaged with my love for cooking. The best part is the newly found awareness I have with food and how our body uses, digests, and stores different foods. I make such smarter choices when I eat now. During the detox and the two weeks after, I have felt fulfilled from the menu of vegetables, protein, healthy fats, nuts and seeds, and legumes. Plus, I have learned so much from Wilma and this workshop about how I emotionally attached myself to food and eating. I am so much more aware, I am so much happier, and I’ve lost 10 pounds thus far. I can’t say enough about how beneficial this workshop was for me, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who feels like I did. Wilma is a fantastic resource of information and the best support system anyone could ask for—she was my personal cheerleader every time I needed it … and then some. Thank you, Wilma!

When I started Carla’s course, I was feeling extreme ‘diet fatigue’. I was super tired of counting calories and carbs and whatever else. Carla’s course was different.

When I started Carla’s course, I was feeling extreme ‘diet fatigue’. I was super tired of counting calories and carbs and whatever else. Carla’s course was different. Her approach to food was wholesome. Her approach to how to deal with the emotional weight we carry around about food was even more so. What I’ll take away from this course, is that at the end of the day, it’s not about the food! We spend SO much time focused on forcing our bodies to change, instead of paying attention to what we need in life for ourselves; self-care, being real with others about how we feel and showing up for what we are passionate about every day. Eating intuitively, mindful attention to my feelings and a solid understanding of the kinds of foods that make my body happy are what Carla has taught me with this course. I have lost about 25 pounds and am balanced in my approach to food now. She genuinely cares about the people she’s teaching and she is 100 percent committed to changing people’s lives for the better. This is a course I wish everyone was required to take!

My life has been changed by leaps and bounds with each week’s information, stimulating me onward and upward toward a new self image.

My life has been changed by leaps and bounds with each week’s information, stimulating me onward and upward toward a new self image. The information has been well documented and presented in a way that is stimulating and even could be defined as exciting. I would recommend this workshop highly! Perhaps the real value outside of core information has been the wonderful interplay with other participants. The director has been extremely observant and thus fully aware of each of our personalities and progress. I would deem the material and personal help invaluable.

I recommend ‘Finally Free’ to anyone who wants to lose weight easily while enjoying healthy food and implementing positive lifestyle change. Wilma Shaw both teaches and practices healthy eating and living. Her expertise throughout the workshop and her individual consultations is matched by her passion. I also liked being part of a small group because we learned from each other each week and in between. We were encouraged to share challenges and wins each week, which helped me see that I was not alone and that we all had things to celebrate. The seven weeks sped by, accompanied by weight loss, more energy and mental clarity. I looked forward to each week adding to my toolbox various strategies that help me know if I am hungry, know when to stop eating. The lessons each week, the No Sugar Challenge, the group, the good rational and ease of preparing tasty, high quality foods make this program a lifestyle.

Going through this with Anthea was a beautiful, almost spiritual, experience for me. Not only do I understand the science and physiology of different foods now, but I also want to be healthier. By healthy I mean the way I eat, my thoughts, my use of my time, and my own wholeness. These workshops have enlightened me and brought me... See More

Going through this with Anthea was a beautiful, almost spiritual, experience for me. Not only do I understand the science and physiology of different foods now, but I also want to be healthier. By healthy I mean the way I eat, my thoughts, my use of my time, and my own wholeness. These workshops have enlightened me and brought me peace with food and my health and my mind. Anthea is a wonderful leader in this workshop. She is a total believer in the ideals of this program and is eager to share them. She made me want to listen to her with enthusiasm. During the exercises that brought tranquility, her voice was so beautiful and added to the experience. I cannot thank Anthea enough for allowing me to participate in these wonderful workshops!

This workshop allowed me to have a different outlook on my lifestyle and my choices I make everyday. It allowed me to develop a more positive relationship with the thinking voice in my head. I have tried a lot of “diets” in the past and the common factor that didn’t allow me to keep pursuing that “diet” was it wasn’t meant to be a lifestyle change. With this lifestyle I am comforted to see that I go easier and not completely degrade myself when I “fall off the wagon” with some food that I deem “bad”. I am more conscious of my choices throughout my day. I have had many obstacles to work through and know I will have many more, but I feel more positive in my abilities to do so. I am grateful for all the support this workshop has given me and it has allowed me to work through some emotional set backs that I have encountered. One day I hop to be Finally Free from my fears that hold me back from living my best life.

This workshop has really made the most positive impact in my life, and I can see myself continuing this lifestyle (not diet)! I’ve struggled with weight for most of my life. I’ve tried every diet, restricting calories/increasing exercise, cutting out carbs, even diet pills, and nothing worked, nor was it sustainable.

This workshop has really made the most positive impact in my life, and I can see myself continuing this lifestyle (not diet)! I’ve struggled with weight for most of my life. I’ve tried every diet, restricting calories/increasing exercise, cutting out carbs, even diet pills, and nothing worked, nor was it sustainable. I thing the real difference between this workshop and other programs I’ve tried is it’s emphasis on the psychology of food and our relationship with it. I have learned to recognize the little voice in my head that was always putting me down and sabotaging me, and I’ve learned to overcome it. I’ve learned more about healthful eating and healthful habits. I now am meal-prepping, exercising, and incorporating more self-care into my everyday routine. I feel less pain/inflammation, and I have more energy/motivation. This program is way more than just about weightless. I feel like I’m finally living my best life, and am finally free.

I can move better and have less joint pain. Had to put two more holes in to make my belt smaller. Never really looked at the food I was eating to see how much sugar and carbs I was eating. After no sugar challenge, I found that I was not as hungry and did not need to eat as much.

What Our Instructors Say About Finally Free™

I signed up to be an instructor for Finally Free because I was looking for a way to bring lasting change to my clients, increased business income and new one-on-one clients. The workshop Dani has put together provides all of that. I am now able to better support my clients with strategies that set them up for a life time of Good Decisions. Additionally, Dani provided the templates and experience necessary to reach out to the medical community in a strategic way that will continue to support my clients and business goals. I’ve taught two workshops thus far and am now in the maintenance phase with two separate groups and loving it! I am also using the new strategies in my life as well as with my one-on-one clients. I highly recommend becoming an instructor for Finally Free. You really get everything you need to fill and lead successful workshops, changing lives for a lifetime.

Before I Started Finally Free I

~ Shannon Montoya

I truly believe this will be a game changer for my nutritional business. I have been impacted by emotional eating myself and the tools in Finally Free really can set someone free from the cycle of trying to fulfill ourselves emotionally through food. It has already helped me with some of my triggers and I look forward to teaching it...
