Allison Massari’s triumphant story of
overcoming adversity through inner
strength and unabashed spirit
BY TRACY FRIESEN
ON JUNE 3, 2009, ALLISON MASSARI’S
LIFE CHANGED FOREVER.
For 20 years, Massari had built a thriving art business, Massari Fine Arts
LLC. On a professional level, she had
made it and achieved international recognition. Among her accolades were
commissions negotiated for Fortune
500 companies, including Lockheed
Martin, General Mills and US Airways.
Throughout Massari’s career, the
impetus and passion for her work
stemmed from her innate ability to
express her own experience through
her art, and her profound commitment to support humanity. Yet, she felt
compelled to give more. She wanted
to share what she had learned, to help
others find deeper purpose and happiness, and fundamentally affect
lives. And until that moment, she hadn’t
discovered just how she would do it.
On that summer day three years ago,
Massari was sitting on her deck overlooking the San Francisco Bay, bursting
with an ardent sense of joy, appreciation and clarity. She felt so alive and
grateful to be alive. She had overcome
tremendous obstacles and found a deep
peace. She had learned secrets about
life. In that moment, with unshakeable
conviction, she knew she had found
her mission on this earth: to dedicate
herself to sharing those life-changing
secrets with others.
