In the spring of 2011, on a warm, vibrant weekend in the Texas Hill Country, I took a personal retreat to sit with the question, “What is uniquely mine to do?” That Saturday while mediating in my cabin, I received an inspiration from my deceased father to encourage my family, friends and loved ones to live inside out. (More here on how to live inside out.)
That experience (and subsequent movement) had a profound impact on my life and work. Four books and hundreds of women’s circles and retreats later, I am still curious about what that means and looks like for me–and those I serve–day to day. This New Year’s week, I am “living inside out” and asking three questions as I reflect on where I’ve been–before I decide where I want to go next. Join me!
I’d love to hear your answers to my three questions–shoot me an email! Like this theme and want more? Here are some tips for starting your day intentionally And if you’d like support for getting clear on how you want to BE and FEEL in 2023, join me Jan. 27-29 for Awakening Your Wild Soul at Kripalu or Feb.-April in Western NC for Sovereignty: A Women’s Mastermind Group for healers/teachers/creatives and small business owners (details below).
