Who is Janice Taylor?

Janice Taylor is a tech pioneer, a social tech entrepreneur, inspirational speaker, author, online safety advocate, healing mentor, mother and advisor, who created AHAVA to disrupt the current methods of healing.

After a long journey from her roots in Canada, Janice has emerged as a pioneer in solving the growing epidemic in Social Media. She has a Bachelor of Psychology, Honours Thesis Option and spent many years studying the impacts of addiction on the human spirit. Early in Janice’s life she spent time with the most vulnerable populations, learning about their journey with addiction. From her teen years into adulthood, Janice’s speciality is uncovering the root cause of their emotional pain to creating an innovative healing solution called Ahava.

It was from her research focused on self-esteem and self-efficacy among women that she sought to create a solution to the issue of social media addiction and how it was affecting women, children, and families. From this 9 year journey in the wild wild west of technology startups, she has created a solution that will awaken families with love. Mazu is the creative force of pioneering “mindful” technology usage far before the world was discussing digital addiction and digital mindfulness.

The movement to bring parents and children together online has resonated with families from all walks of life. Sports teams and brands have used Mazu as a secure channel, to connect with fans and their kids, celebrating common interests and sharing content. Professional leagues such as the NHL, NBA, WNBA, and MLS have joined the movement, leveraging Mazu’s platform as their core engagement strategy for families. As Mazu evolved, Janice’s healing practice evolved into Ahava. A customized, innovative approach to healing. This unique combination of healing, purpose driven theory but with the business chops to facilitate the ultimate purpose to life. As a result, Ahava is changing the field of healing and recovery so that every day people begin to live their life on purpose and discover their true self.

Janice has brought this message to such esteemed conferences as TEDx, Marianne Williamson Events, Tech TO, London Digital Wellness Festival, among others. She was named one of twelve extraordinary Women in Tech by the Consulate General of Canada, chosen as one of Oprah’s Ultimate Viewers​, and selected as a finalist for the 2013 Woman of Worth Awards. Additionally, in 2016, Mazu was recognized as one of the five Most Innovative Companies in British Columbia.

Janice also founded a mentorship program called ​The Dream Project ​for women in recovery​ t​ o inspire and guide women healing from addictions to achieve their dreams. The Dream Project has now developed into a book by the women to tell their stories of recovery and how Ahava changed their lives. Janice’s first book Wisdom. Soul. Startup featured the beginning foundation of Ahava. The follow up book will be released in 2020 that will provide the step by step guide to this revolutionary healing process.

Now, after two decades of study, Janice is helping others along their journey of healing through a 12 step program of Ahava. During the last decade, the world has witnessed an alarming increase in anxiety, depression, suicide and addiction of many forms. As a result of these discoveries, Janice has entered the Harvard Masters Program (thesis option) for Psychology along with Dr. Gabor Mate’s compassionate inquiry course to solidify the last 20 years of her research.

In 2019, Ahava the tech companion will launch to support the healing journey. This innovative tech company will enter the new frontier of Digital Wellness and once again pioneer the path forward for those wanting to live their life on purpose.

AHAVA – An Adventure of Discovery

The Mission of AHAVA is to solve the emotional pain of early experiences that cause the growing disconnection and melancholy facing people across the globe. AHAVA’s breakthrough approach includes unique therapy sessions to uncover personal pain as the starting point on the journey toward healing. This approach starts with AHAVA’s one-of-a-kind “whiteboard session” that helps uncover the wounds from early childhood experience as part of the healing process and unique journey that follows toward personal growth. The healing process that follows the whiteboard session is intended to lead individuals toward their authentic purpose once they uncover and then heal their own source of emotional pain through a series of Phases and Steps:

Phase 1 – DISCOVERY:

This phase begins the AHAVA process by way of prompting individuals through interactions, answering questions, quick and simple activities and adventures that make the start of healing a positive experience and inspire the healing process to continue.


This phase builds on Phase 1 and is all about digging deeper to the root of the childhood wounds. Informed from the experiences during Discovery, personalized adventures are developed in more detail and designed to help lead you back to discovering your true self and your true purpose.


This final phase is a synthesis of the healing and personal discoveries made during Discovery and The Adventure. This is the critical final step in the personal journey that includes connection and expanding your personal and business circles, helps to put you in touch with communities to join and connect with others as part of understanding your true purpose. Another unique aspect of the AHAVA healing journey is the blending of business and personal purpose as part of the final Phase. The healing and personal growth that will be achieved through the AHAVA process will lead you to your personal AH-HA that will permeate into all aspects of your personal and business life.


Once the process of Discover is complete, the journey toward self discovery never truly ends. At AHAVA we recognize the changing direction journeys can take and we are always ready for maintenance, support and dream building after you have completed our three Phase program. Let us continue to lead you beyond your healing in ways that will allow you to collaborate with educators and business groups in ways that support your long term goals and dreams.

Contact Janice today and discover your AH-HA of tomorrow.
