Sovereignty: Mastermind Group for Women

“To help others, you must first resource yourself.” 

For leaders, teachers, healers, creatives & small business owners.

~Jan.-March. In-person. Details coming soon.~

Downtown Brevard, NC

Having a support system makes ALL the difference in how you experience the journey! With humor, wisdom, grace and power we’ll explore how to cultivate an allegiance to self. Come circle up by the fire and enjoy warmth/light, nurturance, empowerment and heartfelt connection. This group will be experiential–not content driven.

Some of the topics we will explore as we dive in to the art/science of self-care, include: 

  • Sovereignty, self-care and cultivating an allegiance to yourself
  • Creativity at mid-life and beyond: what is uniquely mine to do/express?
  • Money/finances: money is energy-what is your relationship to the green stuff? Do you see yourself as prosperous?
  • Managing energy: how to build, cultivate and contain energy
  • Support system: the art of asking for/receiving help and creating a personal and professional support network
  • Career/reinvention and redirection: life purpose, meaning/fulfillment, work-life balance
  • Friendships and work partnerships: nurturing and cultivating these relationships (and when/how to release toxic ones)
  • Mental health/loneliness: nurturing our emotional well-being, changing relationships & depression/anxiety
  • The power of rest: how/why this is your best friend and essential to leaderships (+the science of rest)
  • WILD: how to stay awake and alive and curious– in all areas of our lives (“do it differently!”)
  • Spirituality at mid-life and beyond: nurturing your spirit, spiritual self-renewal, connecting to your Wise Self

When: Three-month program: Thursdays, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Six sessions. Downtown Brevard near the library.

Details coming. Includes a 2023 personal retreat experience –date TBD as well as pre-invites to other spontaneous nature-based outings and movement/song circles.

Who is coming: Women leaders/teachers/healers/creatives and small business owners I have personally connected with who are soulful, alive, authentic, open, supportive and interested in having conversations that matter in a safe/confidential environment.

Women who are signing up want to deepen their self-care practice and/or are in transition and in the process of re-imagining, envisioning, and crafting a new life or work path.  I’ll offer my favorite self-care tools and practices for gaining greater clarity/focus;  we’ll also explore resources for heightening self-awareness and befriending yourself.   This is a completely safe, confidential, circle of trust and we’ll be entering in to  agreements around sharing/privacy.

What you’ll experience:  A guided, structured fun/lively coaching format that will include: mentoring/support, small group and large group connection, meditation/stillness, journaling, body-centered practices to help you gain clarity/focus, connect to your feminine power, time in nature, solo reflection dates and sometimes meditation/gentle movement/song.  I will follow my intuition and let the group experience guide me as to what you most need. Thanks for trusting me-I’ve done this for a long time.

Additional benefits:  a 2023 personal retreat, spontaneous invite-only nature-based events, Ebooks of both of my life balance books ($40), registration to the Sovereignty Retreat ($99). You’ll also be in a private FB group for resource sharing.

Location: A private home in downtown Brevard.  We’ll always have tea and chocolates!

I will not die an unlived life
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible,
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance;
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit. ~ Dawna Markova

Main St. #2373, Brevard, NC.  Make sure if you do PayPal you choose “send to a friend” and pay from your bank account—so they don’t take out additional fees.  If you need to pay half now and half the first night of the program, we can arrange this with prior request.  If you need to pay with a credit card on PayPal, please add 3%.  This is a great holiday gift to give/receive!

If you have any questions at all, please reach out—I really want to ensure this is a fit. It’s ok if you have to miss several meetings, but I’d like all to attend the first meeting.  I apologize if I don’t respond right away to your email questions—I’m jugging a lot on the home/work front right now.  COVID: We will not be wearing masks and while I am vaccinated, I will not be checking vaccination status.  We will be outside for part of each session as we’re able. This is an in-person experience and we do not have a Zoom option.
