Are You Being Called to Support & Empower Women in Your Community?
In 2002, I gathered with a circle of 15 mothers on the worn-out carpeted floor of an Austin hospital patient education room once a month to explore the practice of self-care and what it looks like to stay connected to who we are. I created this first “Personal Renewal Group” (PRG) after the birth of my son, Jonah, because I desperately needed validation and community for what I was experiencing as a mother—and as a woman. Apparently, I wasn't alone.
My friend and world-renowned psychologist, Dr. Richard Miller, says we all need four things: to be seen, heard, connect and belong.
We live in a time when many of us are feeling increasingly isolated and disconnected—from ourselves, and others--and we’re craving meaningful connection and community. Since the first Personal Renewal Group ten years ago, we’ve grown into a robust global community of PRG Facilitators and members in ten countries meeting monthly to discover how to tap the power of self-care, build a support network, be more present and manage our energy/learn to say “no.”
I have witnessed firsthand the enormous life changes that have been born from our groups—both for the women leading them and the women participating. This inspired me to develop an online training program—based on my 20 years of experience in group coaching and personal growth—that helps new PRG Facilitators learn to successfully lead self-renewal circles and retreats for women at all life stages. Coaches, counselors, parenting and birth educators and women’s empowerment advocates have incorporated Personal Renewal Groups into their practices with profound success. Many women become PRG Facilitators purely to support their own healing and growth.
