“Women’s circles are vehicles for healing and transformation. They have the power to change the world.” ~ Jean Shinoda Bolen, MD, The Millionth Circle

Dear Friend ~

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 for a year to explore the practice of self-care and what it looks like to stay connected to our essence. I created this first “Personal Renewal Group” (PRG) after the birth of my son, Jonah, because I desperately needed validation, support 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 15 years ago, we’ve grown into a robust global community of RTA-Certified Facilitators and members in 10 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 a powerful online training program based on my 20 years of experience in group coaching, personal development, transformational learning and the award-winning curriculum from my book, The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal: How to Reclaim, Rejuvenate and Re-Balance Your Life. Today, we coach and mentor RTA-Certified Facilitators to successfully lead self-renewal circles and retreats for women at all life stages. Coaches, counselors, yoga teachers, parenting and birth educators and women’s empowerment advocates have incorporated Personal Renewal Groups/Retreats into their practices with profound success. Many women become RTA-Certified Facilitators purely to support their own healing and growth.

Whether it’s as a RTA-Certified Facilitator, a PRG member or a self-care advocate, I would love for you to personally experience the amazing transformation that occurs in a Personal Renewal Group. It is my hope and dream that our international community of thousands can continue to come together and support one another as we explore and embrace a new way of being in the world. Are you being called to join us?
