Meet Dori Klass

“You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it, however.”

Welcome to My Story

Early on, my life was filled with chaos, pain, loss, assault and separation.

At the age of 24, I lost my sister, Allison Joy, to suicide.
She was only 18 years old. It was just days before her wedding.
In the middle of that first night, after my family and I learned of her sudden passing,
and in the midst of unbearable grief…

I heard a booming voice from deep within the chambers of my heart. It said,

“Say YES to Life!”

That moment was the beginning of my awakening, my journey home to myself, complete with healing, connecting with my original nature and turning toward and embracing my wholeness.

It’s a journey that we are all on, whether we realize it or not.

A journey home to ourselves.

“I believe success is whatever we decide it is; and for me, it’s about having
someone to love, having meaningful work, living an aligned and conscious life, and being of service.”

The Next Chapter

At Dori Klass & Associates, Inc., I set out to build a path for leaders and learners to connect with their whole self and whole power in my program,
Whole Person | Whole Power.

Through this program, I help seasoned professionals in leadership roles to embrace their own inner journey to wholeness, greater empowerment, self-compassion and deeper satisfaction.  I know what life is like with and without it.

It takes courage to pause, slow things down, look within
and say “Yes!” to life; to your life.

“I don’t believe that inspired leadership comes from following a simple, how-to formula for success or through momentary insights gleaned from a book or a singular motivational event. Instead, inspired leadership comes from journeying deep within to know yourself and being free to be who you are – free to bring your Whole Self to your life, work and relationships. It comes from knowing what you’re seeded for, aligning with your core values, showing up as you intend and sensing that you’re on your own right path.”

To know this, or create it, you must awaken!
