The School of Sacred Practice
To practice is to transform
Join one, or all, of the 2018 courses offered as part of The School of Sacred Practice
The most challenging problems we face as women, and as a global community require our courage, our creative effort, our willingness to show up again and again. To grow into the women we are, to alter circumstances for the better, and ultimately, to change the world requires a commitment to Sacred Practice -- Sacred Practice being the highest expression of reverence for the form we wish our days, and our lives, to take. To practice is to transform ourselves, and our lives, and our work from the inside out.
Addressing thorny topics and tender places requires us to gently lean into challenges with the intention to co-create change with life and the Divine. To show up with conviction and consistency helps us learn our strength, feel our resilience and appreciate our humanity. To practice is to exert our capacity to create meaningful change -- not with force; but with presence, patience, and yes, what feels like magic.
Sacred Practice is the antidote to throwing up our hands in fear and hopelessness in the face of challenge and difficulty. Sacred Practice affirms that the change we wish for in the world can begin in our own hearts and minds and lives. The School of Sacred Practice offers 4-week intensive courses where we dive into one theme, going deep into Sacred Practice to emerge changed. Through Sacred Practice, you come to greater understanding, you experience healing and ultimately, you experience lasting change in ways that matter to you and ripple out into the world.
Experience lasting change in ways that matter to you.
With honesty, grace and grit, each 4-week course will include
Four Sunday Soul Teaching eMails: An email delivery of key ideas, resources, and unconventional wisdom as well as prompts and invitations for you to explore the changes you would like to experience through sacred practice. And of course, encouragement to practice!
Four Monday Centering In Calls: On Monday we will gather virtually via teleconference to hone in on our intentions, questions, and practices for the coming week as well as acknowledge and celebrate what is shifting and changing. This alone will change you. Add the daily devotion of sacred practice to Centering In and you will experience incredible transformation.
Four Wednesday Office Hours: Wednesday is an opportunity to ask questions, offer insights, process what you are learning through practice, and to affirm the vitality of the work you are doing. This will be done live, on Facebook, in a private group, so everyone has the benefit of hearing your wisdom, your questions and your insights.
Four Friday Opening to, and Receiving, the Sacred Calls: Again, we will gather via teleconference to journey to liminal realms via breath, drumming, or visualization with specific questions and requests that have bubbled up as a result of our practice. These journeys may focus on healing, clarity, or connecting to deep wisdom archetypes that will infuse your Sacred Practice with support from other realms.
The School of Sacred Practice Courses for 2018
The 2018 courses will largely focus on an overarching theme of Sacred Practices that foster healing, clarity and wise action with our most precious resources: from a sense of worthiness, to offering our bodies and souls rest and recovery, to tending and mending our relationship to money, finishing with our natural capacity to engage in wise action and do hard things. You can sign up for individual courses by using the buy now buttons next to the course description. If you would like to sign up for all five courses, you can choose that option with my gratitude (a special class will be available to you in December of 2017) by using the button below.
Deep Rest is an opportunity to buck the trend of busy & overwhelmed and to allow yourself the sacred practice of restoration.
All success, all action, all manifestation happens in your gloriously wise physical body and let's face it, we need restoration for our body and soul, and at the same time, rest is such a challenge. I would go so far as to say that deep rest is one of the most difficult treasures for women to offer themselves. And yet, to be purposeful women during this particular time in history, we all need more space and time devoted to restorative practices and deep rest, allowing us to listen closely to the pulse of our own wisdom. This course is an opportunity to challenge your resistance to deep self-care and rest to restore your nervous system, to attune to the wisdom of your body, and to rest in and connect to Source herself. In doing nothing "productive" I promise you will return to your normal rhythms with a new perspective, deep insight and a body and soul ready to engage in meaningful ways. You will complete this month feeling centered, grounded and cherished.
Deep Rest | $97.00
January 22 - February 19, 2018
Dwell in Worth | $97.00
April 15 - May 13, 2018
Dwell in Worth is an opportunity to consciously cultivate sacred practices to help you experience a greater sense of your worth.
Worth, or lack of experiencing it, drives so much of the hiding, shame and disconnect that I've experienced in my own life, and also drives so many of the women I work with and talk to. Amplifying a sense of worthiness and personal authority in every woman I know is at the heart of my work. You can cultivate and practice dwelling in worth. Yes, practice. When you practice dwelling in your instinctual worthiness, I'm not promising you perfect confidence, self-esteem and the end of cellulite, but I am offering you a space to explore and to experience your worth in a different way. This is your invitation to root more deeply into the truth of your innate worthiness by creating and working with practices that support your dignity, truth and power - the heart of worthiness. You will complete this month of sacred practice being on your own side with fierce kindness and conviction that you are absolutely worth it.
Tend and Mend is sacred practice devoted to repairing the financial past and building nourishing habits to care for our resources.
From surfacing and working with unconscious money beliefs, to cleaning up financial debris of the past with courage and compassion, this month is an opportunity to cultivate a stronger relationship of care and ease with your financial resources. This is, without a doubt, one of the most challenging sacred practices and also one of the most important. IN conjunction with healing the past, we will look to the future and also ask for deep support and infusions of magic from your unseen guides and allies, including how you generate income, live your life, spend and invest with your highest and wisest self. You will complete this month having cleared up past mistakes with compassion, courage and grace and, moving into the future, you will have meaningful, sacred practices to engage with your financial resources that support your values.
Mend and Tend | $97.00
August 13 - September 7, 2018
Manifest | $97.00
October 30 - November 24, 2018
Manifest is an opportunity to explore the sacred practice of bringing your work to the world.
In this sacred practice, we will explore and work with the archetypes of nature to understand how to take an idea from inspiration to fruition. We, as creators (and money itself) -- we are all nature in different forms and we follow the same rhythm of growth and manifestation. In my experience everyone struggles with one or more elements of growth and manifestation and we all shine in different aspects of growth as well. With curiosity and fierce compassion for ourselves, we will travel the cycle of growth and manifestation to engage with the sacred practice of wise action with one or more projects of your choosing. Of course, we will also call on support from seen and unseen allies to clear the path for success energetically and practically speaking. You will complete this month with an appreciation for your strengths and talents as well as a compassionate understanding of what support you need to bring projects to fruition. My hope is that you will finish one, if not more, projects that amplify your sense of innate wealth and that the momentum will continue well beyond this course.
Frequently Asked, Now Answered
Tell me more about sacred practice. Why should I care about practice?
First let me say, my philosophy about sacred practice is let it be easy and let it be sweet because practice, by it's very nature, often brings up all of our resistance. I get that and that is why I get SO excited about practicing with intent and conviction because once we notice resistance (even with the most easy and sweet practice) we can be certain there is gold waiting for us in practice!
What I offer you through The School of Sacred Practice is endless love and invitations to dive deep into sacred practice with the tender places and the challenges of living. In my experience, addressing thorny topics and tender places requires us to gently lean into challenges with the intention to co-create change with life and the Divine. To show up with conviction and consistency helps us learn the depth of our strength and appreciate our humanity. To practice is to exert our capacity to create change -- not with force; but with presence, patience, and yes, what feels like magic. I invite you to go deep into sacred practice in order to come to greater understanding, to heal and ultimately, to experience results that matter to you and ripple out into the world. My experience is that this amplifies your understanding of your strength, your personal authority, and your connection to the magic within you and available to you — a deep alignment with your deepest values and, in that alignment, crafting a life lived from your essence.
Always, always: you get to choose, based on what’s happening in your life and what is resonant for you, what you do and don’t choose. That being said, if you say yes to being here, I hope you will set an intention to let yourself be changed through sacred practice.
Why is the focus for 2018 Resources?
I'm going to be frank -- our global relationship to resources is bleak. Offering this series of courses at this juncture is MY sacred practice. It is a topic where I certainly have a lot of experience and knowledge, and yet, in the current climate of super storms, crazy fires, and climate change deniers as well as the overt bias toward the masculine and the fact that girls and women are still devalued in big and small ways, well for me, this is always a timely exploration and opportunity for healing and clear action.
Many of the women I serve have an ambivalent or a fractious relationship to money and their other resources. Women often unconsciously devalue themselves because it's the water we swim in. As my own sacred practice, I offer these courses in the spirit of healing, clarity and empowerment. Women have every right to be seen and treated as equals, not exploited and devalued and dismissed. Misogyny is certainly systemic and "in the air we breathe" and, yet there is great opportunity to devote ourselves to the sacred practice of freeing ourselves from the forced ideas that we aren't good with money, or business, that we can't rest, that our intuition, female bodies and emotions make us less valuable, that everyone else comes before us, that we are not worthy of what we desire... you get the point. None of these things are true and, I may not be able to change the over culture (yet), but I can invite as many women as I know to devote themselves to tending their resources, and our collective resources, as vital, valuable and worthy of fierce protection. Because that is true. And over time, with sacred practice we change the paradigm and women and our natural resources and feminine qualities become partners with the masculine to create a world where all resources are nourished and amplified instead of destroyed. It starts in the hearts, minds and sacred practice of women everywhere.
Will there be energy work to support the courses?
Oh, I am SO glad you asked. Yes. For each course, I will do a group Medicine Vision to create a strong energetic container to support our collective desire for change and transformation. If you are unfamiliar with the energy work and visioning that I offer, please do read more. In essence, a Medicine Vision is part intuitive vision and part energy work. The intuitive vision is a love letter to the group from the Divine on the adventure that awaits you, while the energy work anchors our intentions into the group energy body as we move through sacred practice.
What kind of results can I expect?
I think it's wise to answer this by telling you who this is likely not going to be suited for:
- This is not for you if you are looking for prescriptive "solutions" to the challenges you face. So, if you are wanting a detailed plan on how to tap into a 6-figure business, become a millionaire, game the system or in any other way want to fix, mend or soothe yourself through seeking external validation this is not for you. I deeply believe in guiding you to have, and to trust, your own experience and your own wisdom.
- This is not for you if aren't interested in accessing the wealth of wisdom available through connection to the divine, to your intuition and to elements of life that science simply cannot explain... yet. Sacred practice is, at it's very essence, a spiritual and personal exploration of how you move through the world and practicing in fresh new ways for joy, for peace, for freedom and for personal authority.
- It might go without saying, however, this is a group experience. If you don't feel comfortable in groups, particularly online groups, this really won't work for you. Groups thrive on each person showing up and being present - you miss out on so much if you aren't there.
- Boy do I love insight, but it means next to nothing without action. This is not about sitting back and hiding and certainly it's not about simply trying to visualize change or ask for magic to happen... magically. Be prepared for the sacred practice of consistent, wise action, sister.
So, all that being said, The School of Sacred Practice is ultimately a safe-harbor to face your most pressing challenges with grace and grit in a community that is supportive. In turn, this will help you trust yourself, trust life and live a life that is far more aligned with your values and embrace that life IS, in fact, a series of moment of sacred practice. Your results? You will experience transformation in your relationship to yourself and to the themes of The School. Beyond that, I don't know. My experience is that growth spills out and over into our lives in surprising ways. I'm looking forward to hearing about your experience should you decide The School of Sacred Practice is for you.

Do you offer refunds?
When you choose The School of Sacred Practice, you are saying yes to a life-changing journey and I am with you every step of the way. I hold my investment in you and the group of women who will gather with you for every course, sacred. There are no refunds and the investment is non-transferrable. Let me tell you more about this policy.
The nature of an investment is to create abundance - to plant seeds, trusting that the seed will germinate, sprout, grow and blossom - and spread the bounty farther than you can possibly imagine. I fully expect that will be the case for you. I want as many women as possible to know their power and strength through The School of Sacred Practice. That is the nature of investing our energy - and the money you invest helps you put your resources of time and energy into being present for the sacred practice. As such, when you choose to invest in yourself, make sure you are all in. I would love to walk with you every step of the way.
