Previous Groups & Workshops
A four-week series for women.
Get in touch with what works for you, what you want,
and what is getting in your way.
Do you want to start the new year with: space to process your wants and needs; a group of thoughtful and passionate women; clarity about what you want and need in 2019; and commitment to your self-care, dreams, and best relationships?
Join me for a four-week series to gain clarity on and commitment to the things that will help you be the most rested, protected, nourished, and vital woman you can be. Each week we will focus on a different area of life and use body awareness, breathing, creative exercises, and group sharing to clarify and support each other in creating the lives we desire.
1/4: What is it you desire? Set intentions, reflect on what went well/not well in 2018, and clarify goals for 2019.
1/11: How and where does your time/energy flow? Create energy/eco maps to identify where you get and spend energy, identify people/thoughts/habits that get in the way of how you want to live, and reflect on social media habits.
1/18: What do you need to cut out of your life? What is stealing your precious energy right out of you? What people, activities, habits, and thoughts are not serving your vision for your life? Get clear on what needs to be scaled back or eliminated.
1/25: What do you need to commit to? Now that you have created some space by saying "no" to some things, what do you want to say "yes" to? Identify your support system, identify what you will need to keep these commitments, and create a plan of action.
Workshops will take place from 6:30-8pm at Full Lotus Yoga
827 NE Alberta St. Portland, OR 97211
Maximum 8 participants
This group is open to those who struggle with anxiety or trauma and those who do not struggle daily with these challenges. Please note the focus of this group will be on life-assessment and skills around setting intention, creating action plans, identifying unhelpful thoughts, and creating healthy relationship boundaries to serve the vision of your life. It will not be primarily focused on skills or techniques to manage anxiety or trauma. All who identify as women are welcome.
