A little over a year ago I embarked on a journey within my creative and professional work.
I suppose the roots of this query began the summer of 2017 while taking a trip to visit an old, very dear friend at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA. It was a time of solace for me. Filled with long afternoons, lingering reflections, a quiet inner peace held by ocean waves, the distant sound of seals barking, and infinitely beautiful views of the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean.
I felt calm and open to change. I was noticing the questions that held a longing for myself and my work that I could not yet fully describe. Unaware of it at the time, I was letting go of a part of myself I had long outgrown.
Later that year, in December 2017 I began a program called Soul Dwelling Heart, the first of two online programs, to support women in rediscovering the power and wisdom of their intuitive body. ⠀
During the course of these two six month programs I recognized that there arose a very specific need for a foundation of support and awareness around what it means for women to, not only evolve, but trust their inner guidance.
As a direct result of having an embodied framework for transformation, a regular meditation practice, accessible tools for self-care as well as consistent and compassionate support around their own unique process of reflection within a nurturing community of women they were able to step more fully into themselves, their creative ideas and professional work with greater self-confidence, trust and ease.
From these women I heard a need for more sacred time, deep time. The kind that inextricably provides for our capacity to create and give birth to our inner worlds. I heard the need for feelings of safety and an environment that honors our voices and enables the soul teachings of our stories to be shared. I received questions about how specific embodied practices would help them align with and make space for their soul calling.
I kept hearing this shared longing they all had to allow for more of their true, unbridled Self to unfold. To learn how this innermost Self can be seen for her unique gifts in the world.
A year later, after the inception of Soul Dwelling Heart, in November of 2018, I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Deborah Adamy. Right away we found common ground with our shared fondness for the poet and philosopher John O'Donohue. In particular his book Anam Cara.
At some point, Deborah asked me if I would be interested in being a guest on her podcast called @enlighten_podcast. Without hesitation I said, "Yes". It was during our conversation that so much about the deeper layer for me and this journey through my work was revealed.
I believe the soul has voice in this world when we feel safe, seen, heard and held. I believe it is a gift to all of us when we are able to share our stories openly. And I believe that the level of collective healing we are experiencing right now is why this course came into being.
From Guidance Within is a mentorship program designed for women who want to feel grounded in, supported by and tethered to their own clarity of purpose.
These women feel called to align with a greater sense of meaning and purpose for their lives and want to feel supported by a community of like-minded women. They are looking for a clear direction and often wonder about their soul calling. They have a big beautiful creative vision for their work in the world, yet often struggle with self doubt and limiting beliefs around worthiness and purpose.
They want to create work from a place that is aligned with their values and want to integrate their embodied practice on a deeper level to inform their work with others as well as feel more empowered by their life choices.
These women long to feel “most right” on their path.
