About Avalon Empowerment

Arthurian legend tells of Avalon; a mythical island paradise of magic, abundance and harmony. Avalon symbolized the sacred gateway between worlds, a threshold accessed only through with gestures of great courage and faith.

Not only was Avalon was a place of wisdom and worship, it is where King Arthur’s Excalibur sword (the ultimate symbol for responsibility, leadership and power) was forged and where the famous King was eventually laid to rest.

Avalon was a place of higher learning and great power. She calls us to serve.

At Avalon Empowerment, we believe the best way to serve is to become the most authentic, most powerful, most courageous version of yourself and to share the truth of who you are along with your unique gifts and talents with the world.

We exist to empower leaders. We believe in empowering individuals. Empowered individuals create empowered relationships; empowered relationships create empowered workplaces and families; empowered workplaces and families create empowered societies; empowered societies will empower the world and transform the consciousness on the planet. It’s never been more important. Join us.

About Ernie

Following a profound awakening in 1987, Ernie began a lifelong journey of self awareness and self actualization.

Ernie began his professional career as a high school English teacher in 1989 and later transitioned into his role as a Guidance Counsellor.

Meanwhile, Ernie’s passion for self exploration led him to travel extensively throughout East Africa, and the Far and Middle East including India and Nepal. He was inspired by many experiences throughout these travels to bridge the gap between the philosophies and teachings of the East and the science of the West.  Upon his return, he pursued training in complementary treatment modalities and in 2000 opened Transformational Pathways Inc., a personal and self development centre that focuses on assisting people to identify and overcome the core root of whatever may be ailing or holding them back on a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level. Over the past 16 years, Ernie has had the pleasure of working with thousands of individuals and in 2015 Ernie joined forces with Laura Slinn to form Avalon Empowerment. Together they facilitate group trainings under the Avalon banner.

Ernie’s clients and peers credit his success to his innate ability to intuitively see beyond the surface and uproot the hidden obstacles preventing lasting health, vitality, joy and success. He believes that every person’s life journey is to return to the authentic truth of whom they are, to move confidently through fear, embrace change, and create the life they yearn to live and express.

Ernie continues to serve clients in individual sessions and now offers group training programs on a variety of health, well-being, leadership, self-empowerment and metaphysical topics. Avalon Empowerment. is a Board certified Training Institute in the top technologies for quantum change and development: Neuro Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy®, Hypnotherapy and Coaching.  Ernie is a board certified Trainer and Master Practitioner of these technologies. Ernie is also the creator of the Quantum Change Process.

About Laura

Laura discovered the magic and power of the Quantum Change Process™,  NLP, Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy™ first hand while dealing with physical illness and emotional pain leading to infertility. After much struggling to have a child and grim diagnosis for her reproductive health, Laura chose to pursue a range of holistic approaches to infertility which included the aforementioned modalities.

Within months, Laura experienced profound and rapid healing physically, emotionally and spiritually. She not only conceived and gave birth to a healthy child, but has she has been healthy ever since. Her own remarkable experience was a catalyst for her spiritual awakening and is just one of the many reasons she was compelled to leave a successful career as an award winning Art Director and devote herself to helping others achieve extraordinary results in their own lives.

Passionate about this powerfully transformative work, Laura is dedicated to utilizing leading edge mind-body tools to teach others how they can transcend issues they are facing by eliminating core limiting beliefs that are standing between them and the lives they deserve.

Today, Laura is a Board Certified Trainer and Master Practitioner of NLP, TLT, Coaching and Hypnosis. She is honoured to be coaching and training clients individually and in groups in both therapeutic and business settings.
