Re-define my life path.
“As the youngest in the pilot program, 32 at the time, I can attest to the fact that Raison D’Être is beneficial to a younger generation, and that I would have found the program useful in my 20’s as well. The opportunity to participate in La Raison D’Être came at a pivotal crossroads in my life, both personally and professionally; and provided me with the tools necessary to re-asses my values, strengths, weaknesses, etc., and re-define my life path. The self-awareness and clarity I gained was unparalleled to any life-coaching or therapy I have ever taken part in. Marie-Christine has a distinct gift for disarming oneself, deconstructing issues to get at their core, and re-focusing a person, all the while letting them remain in control of their path. The process took time, energy, and a ton of introspection, but it’s the best gift I've perhaps ever given myself. Thank you, Marie-Christine, for helping me re-discover my inner self.”
- Constance Dunham, Chief Custodian
“Marie Christine's deep compassion, understanding and devotion to helping people discover who they have yet to become is inspiring. Through an unconventional, yet effective process, Raison d'Etre helps me to dive inside myself and examine how to live the fullness of my life through my passions and gifts. I highly recommend it to anyone at a crossroads and looking to reinvent themselves. An incredible and eye opening experience.”

My life has completely changed.
“Things come to you in life exactly when you need them; this program was like that for me. After doing a winter/spring program with Marie-Christine I can truly say my life has completely changed. I have gone from being vaguely dissatisfied and uninspired to discovering what I really FELT passionate about, and am executing plan. She is a warm and intelligent facilitator, actually a catalyst! With a lot of real world experience in both business and human-ness. I literally cannot imagine having NOT done this program with her !!!!!”

From reactionary to pro-active.
“I came to MC with a business idea, but I knew I needed to be guided before wasting time or money moving forward with this particular plan. Within 2 weeks of the 8 week program I knew in my heart that I was not moving in the right direction and as the work continued with MC a clearer path started to form. I was given the tools and was able to define and identify a course of action that would seem to be a better fit and also learned how to think differently. My brain shifted gears from being mostly reactionary in my thought process to proactive. This was a big step for me and got me more in touch of what matters giving me the confidence and tools to take the next steps for my future. Thank you MC!”

A practical spiritual journey.
“Marie-Christine Toron’s Raison D’Être is a unique life strategy system that helps women from all walks of life who want to start or change career, start a business, or simply live a more fulfilling life. The program is unique because it’s based on your own core values. It equips you to make life choices that are more holistic and sustainable. I did the program because I needed to learn how to market my services. The program gave me the desired marketing tools, but it also revealed something unexpected about myself, which was that my real marketing challenge was lacking the courage to sell myself. Once I had that epiphany, I realized I was looking at marketing from the wrong perspective. I consider Marie-Christine’s program as much a spiritual journey as a practical one that can change your life, in unexpected ways.”

It gets amazing results.
“I’m a woman full of ideas, who seldom implements them; I get sidetracked, distracted, and overwhelmed. I heard about Ms. Toron’s program when I was knee deep in ideas with no direction. So, I enrolled in her program and it changed my life. I began the workshop with a vague notion of something I wanted to create. In my normal way, it would have stayed a niggling elusive notion, never to be acted on. But, with Marie-Christine’s skillful leadership, I was able to conceive a compelling workshop of my own. Marie-Christine is insightful and thorough. She has a broad background in entrepreneurial and business development. And to that she adds years of experience in guiding clients to create concrete life strategies that fit their core values. Most of all she’s got your back. Her desire for my success was equal to my own. Her method is unconventional, yet gets amazing results. I can vouch for that. I am now able to take a project to its fruition with focus and unbridled determination. Something that was very hard for me to do in the past.”

From skepticism to clarity.
“A successful entrepreneur with a broad range of life experiences, Marie-Christine combines insight, sensitivity, generosity, humor and expertise with a practical, well-defined “how to” approach. With Marie-Christine, even introspection became fun! Her three-month program offered brainstorming, support and advice, together with a well-conceived process of exploration and a detailed framework for designing and developing a sustainable business. Marie-Christine listens with interest and compassion, intuits, encourages and motivates. I came to the program eagerly, but with the skepticism of someone who had tried with others before and been disappointed. I came away with clarity about my values, renewed confidence in what brings me to life, and tools to move forward. Marie-Christine’s wholehearted commitment was a huge incentive in my determination to create a project/business that works for me.”
