The Power of L.O.V.E.

SEPTEMBER 3-9, 2024

The Power of L.O.V.E.  in BRAZIL

Welcome to a life changing experience in Brazil!

Hello! My name is Jacqueline Fonseca de Abreu. I am originally from Rio de Janeiro and have been living in the USA since 2002. I am deeply grateful for my life journey. I feel blessed and honored to be living in this beautiful blue planet we all share surrounded by so much beauty and magic. I am the daughter of incredible parents, mother of two amazing daughters and grandmother of a super cute and fun grandson.

I have an immense experience working for more than 35 years as a clinical psychologist in Brazil, multicultural family therapist in the USA and executive leadership coach globally. I am the founder and CEO of Global Awareness Consulting, an intercultural coaching, training and consulting firm, and the founder and president of Global Awareness Citizens, a non profit organization which serves people in need around the globe. I am also the creator of L.O.V.E. (TM) and author of the book, "The First Seeds of L.O.V.E.: A Leadership, Coaching, and Therapeutic Approach, Framework, and Method for Life Fulfillment and Human Evolution". I serve as a board member for the International Family Therapy Association (IFTA) and have many certifications in different areas linked to human growth, such as neuroscience for leadership, Reiki, Yoga, reflexology, among others. I love teaching and learning, keeping myself busy participating in high quality training programs and going to international conferences to present and learn from other incredible professionals. I have presented in more than 20 countries and have worked with clients from more than 50. Learning and growing are parts of an endless journey.

I would like to invite you to be part of an amazing group of selected people from different parts of the world to be immersed in an incredible experience where you will connect to yourself, others and Mother Nature, learn effective tools to help you achieve your personal and professional goals and create a fulfilling and meaningful life, a life you really LOVE.

You will learn and practice new techniques which will help your holistic growth, while enjoying the presence of amazing people, in some of the most beautiful and inspiring places on Earth, in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. You will be surrounded by wonderful landscapes formed by mountains, forests, waterfalls and beaches and will visit fantastic famous landmarks such as Christ the Redeemer and the Sugar Loaf Mountain. You will have the amazing opportunity to visit three cities, the wonderful and famous Rio de Janeiro, the beautiful Niteroi (where I was born) and Angra dos Reis, which is a paradise on the coast, so you can have the best experience you can possibly think of. We are staying in a breathtaking island! I am so excited!!

"I have realized that leading my thoughts was one of the most challenging tasks I could possibly have. It is almost impossible to do that when there is pain, discomfort, strong emotions, negative energies, or trauma. Understanding the functioning of myself holistically has helped me enormously to make the necessary changes I had to make to create a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life, a life I LOVE!"

I am very excited about having you with us for certainly one of the most amazing experiences of your life!


Sign up now and reserve your spot! 

Jacque is originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she earned her degree in Psychology and a post-graduation specialization in Psychopedagogy. In 2002 she moved to the USA where she got a master's degree in community counseling and a post-master's specialization in couple and family therapy. She has been working in the mental health, intercultural business, and global leadership fields for more than 35 years, helping people from more than 50 countries.

When she was 18, she almost died because of some health issues, mostly caused by stress and having an unhealthy lifestyle. A lot of her stress was caused by having a hectic schedule juggling work and intense studies, combined with family problems. During that time, she started questioning the psychology theories and techniques she was studying in college and realized that most of them did not address human's individualities or their functioning as a holistic being. While at the hospital, she started thinking about the real meaning of life and how she could create a healthy lifestyle by focusing on her physical, emotional, psychological, energetic, financial, and spiritual health. And also, any other aspect of her life which she should consider so she could create a great holistic health,and consequently an amazing life. That is when she started designing the L.O.V.E. approach. (L=Leadership, O=Optimism, V=Vitality, E=Education, EVOLve = Evolution). 

One of Jacque's key missions is to help people create a meaningful and fulfillling life. A life they really love. 

She is the daughter of an amazing mother, mother of two awesome daughters and grandmother of a super fun grandson. She loves to spend time with her family, contemplate nature and travel the globe sharing love and L.O.V.E.!

"Happiness is a way of travelling, not your destination.

Zen masters tell us that we corrupt the beauty of life by making happiness our goal. They say that happiness is the practice of living in the moment."

Bia started her journey in yoga in Tae Kwon Do at the age of 10, creating an early awareness that the body is the temple where our soul lives and is a valuable instrument to express our feelings and emotions through its movements.


She has been practicing yoga regularly since 2011. In 2017 she completed her first training as a yoga instructor - 200RYT The Art of Advanced Vinyasa Yoga. She specialized in Yang Vinyasa - Oss Yoga, Meditation and Yin Yoga and Hands On, all from the Yin Yang Vinyasa School.

In February 2020, she completed the Teacher Training 300RYT - Yin/Yang & 5 Elements, by Trimurti Yoga, in Goa, India.


Studious in subtle anatomy, vital energy and the journey of self-knowledge through the Chakras. She believes that the Universe is in constant movement and evolution, bringing countless possibilities to those who venture to look at themselves.


We are looking forward to seeing you!
