Welcome to Held.
HELD is quarterly, individual support for women in business as healers, coaches, teachers and practitioners who want ongoing support without a huge time (or financial) commitment. Women who feel overwhelmed and challenged finding the space and time to listen deeply to their own wisdom. Women, like you, who want to be Held in the strong presence of a coach, energy practitioner, thought-partner and intuitive guide.
The space that I offer you through Held is healing, clarifying and amplifying -- if you think about a garden, the richness and the thickness of the topsoil is everything. It makes, or breaks, the health and vitality of whatever you are growing. Our focus in Held is about healing and amending your metaphorical topsoil -- opening you up to the natural healing powers of your body, your mind and your soul. Honing the clarity that emerges from being rooted into yourSelf. Amplifying the energy and the inspired action that is the natural impulse when you've created a strong foundation.
Offering yourself the gift of being Held is a deeply nourishing and healing act on behalf of not only yourself, but the work you are here to do. Now is the time to offer yourself a taste of the same space and generous attention that you lavish on others. This is your space and your invitation to sink in and receive, sister.
Let yourself be held.
I created Held for you
Let me tell you why
I'm your guidess, Nona Jordan
I'm a CPA turned master coach, energetic healer, and wisdom guide. I remember the first time I realized that the game was rigged for me to lose -- I was 28 years old, working my ass off in corporate accounting as an SEC reporting manager, diligently practicing yoga and meditating everyday to try and stabilize the overwhelm of work.
It didn't work.
At some point I realized that the 70 hour work weeks and the frenetic, dysfunctional pace was never going to change. I would never get ahead. In fact, it was guaranteed to get worse if I continued to climb the corporate ladder.
So I stopped.
I stopped drinking first and dedicated myself to getting sober on my own terms. I stopped saying yes to every project at work and started to carve out time for cooking food and moving my body (a novel idea). Most revolutionary, I stopped working on weekends and instead got curious about what I might actually enjoy doing: I took cello lessons, I hiked in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, I took dance lessons, I sketched and I painted. I tried new things and clung to the small joys and successes as indicators that my future could be better, could be beautiful.
Because I don't want to pretend -- this time was painful. Getting sober, cleaning up messes, clearing my mind and my life of ideas and people who were not operating in my best interests was really, really hard. I often characterize this time by saying it felt like running through tar. And, to add insult to injury, once I stopped centering my life and my energy around work and numbing myself with alcohol, it became clear that the place I was working wasn't interested in balance for it's employees. So basically, it felt like I lost everything though in the end, I gained everything I truly longed for.
It all began with a commitment and a devotion to tending mySelf - my body, my life, my desires, my creativity and yes, the tender parts and the broken aspects of my life, too.
What does this have to do with Held? Well, everything, really.
When I started my business as a coach, I noticed that I still had this strong urge to push, to deny my needs, to make everything about work and my obligations to my family until there was nothing left to give -- I got very curious about that pattern and noticed that a lot of the women who ended up in my practice wanting to build businesses were actually exhausted or in transition or dealing with trauma or addiction and trying to grow a business in depleted soil.
Held is the antidote.
Held is the wisdom that I wish I had access to when I was anxious as hell about my decision to actually take care of my own damn self.
Held is the sweet invitation to get grounded and take a breath that I wanted when the world around me was running around with their hair on fire, insisting I join them.
Held is the affirmation that I needed that I wasn't alone when I felt tender in recovery, and life felt like sandpaper against my skin.
Held is the outstretched hand that I longed for when I didn't quite know what step to take next.
Held is the nourishment of being supported by another who could see, and remind me of, my innate wholeness (even in the mess).
You will find this, and more, when you let yourself be Held.
How you will be Held
What will it mean to be Held?
You have two choices when you say yes to HELD
Individual Energy Medicine: At the outset of each season, I will invite you to send your intentions to me and, during the course of the season, I will craft your Medicine Vision, or another type of energy medicine to create a strong energetic container that will support your individual, desire for change and transformation. In essence, a Medicine Vision is part intuitive vision and part energy work. The intuitive vision is a love letter to you from the Divine to hold and nourish you, while the energy work opens the way for your intentions to come to fruition.
or you can choose
Individual Coaching Session: Again, at the beginning of each season, I will send you an invitation to book a 50-minute coaching session with me. In that session, you have the space and the time to be coached, to vision, to move your ideas and intentions forward. You will leave our session with a clear path forward, excited for what’s coming.
Every woman who says yes to HELD will also receive
Altar work: Altars are intended to help us change and, as part of Held, I create a special altar where I hold the women of Held. Each day, I bless you, pull a card and draw on plant medicine to support and strengthen you. In this way I hold each of you and invite the divine, and the earth, to hold you as well.
Monthly Check-in: Once each month, I will send an email inviting you to check in with me. I want to know what is unfolding for you. This is an opportunity to yes, check in with your intentions, but also to be witnessed and received via email. And of course, if something comes up before I check in with you, you are always welcome to reach out. I thrive on supporting you, my sister.
