Release Resistance. Embrace Everyday Nourishment.
Create a Plan & Learn Techniques for Self-Sustainability
"Your real work is to figure out where your power base is. And to work on the alignment of your personality -- your gifts that you have to give -- with the real reason why you're here. That's the number one thing you have to do, is to work on yourself…and to fill yourself up, and keep your cup full. Keep yourself full." - Oprah
In a culture that commodifies self-care as just another hashtag, that glorifies over-giving, admonishes time-off or giving to one's self as "selfish" (especially as womxn), it can feel like a highly political act to take time to authentically give to one's self.
We deserve to move out of this societal guilt and internalized pressure. We deserve to embrace our birthright of worthiness of love and care no matter what.
How we show up for ourselves reflects in how we show up for our clients and colleagues through our businesses, in our intimate partnerships and friendships, in our family and community. How we care for ourselves is a reflection of our willingness to receive love, our connection to our own power and worth, and our tactical priorities in life.
In any given moment, we can choose to empower or disempower ourselves. We can choose to align with our highest version of ourselves, or not.
When we choose our birthright of empowerment, of worthiness, we not only fill our own cups but we provide a service to others; we create an example, an embodied invitation for others to do the same. We diminish the tendency to need, grasp, or cling to outside things or people, expecting others to do the filling of our cups for us. This is key to creating adaptive, nourishing relationships with ourselves and others based on mutual exchange, unconditional love, and co-creative excellence.
This is an invitation to ourselves to trust in our own power, to serve ourselves and humanity from a resourced place, and allow the experience of ease and grace in our lives.
In this *workshop we will:
- Discuss our experiences with the subjects of self-care, self-worth, and empowerment, drawing insights from transpersonal psychology and Eastern spiritual and philosophical traditions to help ground and expand our perspective
- Reflect, Journal, and Share to create an understanding of these themes that is both universal and highly personal
- Learn how to work through and heal blocks to worthiness and receiving using the Whole Human Alchemy method, a powerful experiential process you can learn here and take with you to support yourself outside of the workshop
- Create a self-care mission statement and plan to prototype and incorporate meaningful self-care practices into our lives
- Experience a heart-opening ceremony to nourish and seal our intentions in community
*This workshop experience is centered on a trauma-informed approach, honoring the nervous systems of all individuals, and welcoming all self expressions and life experiences with care and love.
