Sarina, can you tell us about yourself?
I am a career and life coach and mother to Daxton, 6, and Ryder, 4. Through individual and group coaching I help people create more energy, balance, and passion in their lives. I assist men and women as they navigate all types of career and life transitions. I am founder of One Balanced Life based in Minneapolis, my home base. I am a senior career and life balance coach with Career Strategists—where I serve clients around the world through one-on-one coaching.
Why did you become a Personal Renewal Group (PRG) Facilitator?
After becoming a mother, I knew a huge shift had occurred in my life. As a result of that experience, I began to explore what was available for education and support in my community. There were so many wonderful resources locally that addressed my child’s development, yet there was nothing that addressed my development as a mother. I set out to create a series of classes and workshops for a prenatal wellness center and in the process found Renee and The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal. Oh, how I wish I had found the book and Personal Renewal Group Program before spending so much time creating my own stuff! I immediately signed-up to begin leading self-renewal circles for women and have loved every minute of the work. It is hard to believe I’ve been facilitating groups for over half a decade!!!
How has the PRG work changed or affected you?
The effect the PRG work has had on my life is immeasurable. I have been changed as a result of my experiences on both personal and professional levels. The work has allowed me to gain a better understanding of how I can function at my best, as a mother, wife, friend, sister, coach – and that the path to do so is so simple. It is truly all about self-care. One of the biggest benefits of becoming a PRG facilitator, is the growth I’ve had in my individual coaching business. I end up coaching the sisters, brothers, friends, and husbands of my group participants. I am deeply grateful for the connections I have made with clients, other PRG Facilitators and with Renee and our team. And most importantly, I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a witness to the tremendous impact the book and work has on PRG participants and women around the world.
What are your favorite self-care activities?
Seriously I can’t pick one. It so depends on what I need in the moment – being outdoors, gardening, creating, moving my body, traveling, and moving slow are a few that jump out for me!
