Harness Your Power of Interpretation
I'm currently preparing to present at the Michigan Womyn's Festival in early August. I'll be teaching two intensives on the topics Personal Power Surge and Get Over Her! I'm excited about both. I'll also teach both as general workshops, along with another on Powerful Self-Inquiry (The Work of Byron Katie).
Among the wonderful pieces of birthday mail I got last month (thank you, thank you, thank you), someone wrote to say she'd been on the fence about attending Michfest this year and decided to come when she saw I had an intensive on Tuesday. It's so helpful in my journey to get feedback about the impact of my work on real human beings. I so appreciate it when it comes.
Then this testimonial landed in my inbox this week:
During my sessions with you, I remembered that I can find comfort and gentleness within and for myself. I had forgotten that this was possible, and the first time you reminded me, I didn't believe you. But I was so glad to hear what you said that I cried, and decided to come see you for the next six months.
During our time together, while my life situation swirled chaotically at times, your coaching encouraged me--with a mixture of probing honesty and such sweet kindness--to cultivate my inner space. I am very grateful for this and your many, many gifts.
Free Exploration Sessions:
from 60 minutes to 30
For the past three years, I've built my business in part by offering free 60-minute sessions to give people an experience of my work. I also consider it a time tithe, as I offer the session to anyone who wants it, even if they have no intention of coaching with me. I love these sessions and find it deeply gratifying to sit with someone, anyone, and send them away with a new perspective on life, themselves, their circumstances—whatever—so that they can do it differently, connect to all that supports them, come closer to self-love. ...
It's come to this: more people show up wanting these sessions than I can properly make time for in the context of my client load. I've therefore cut them down from 60 to 30. It works! To get the free session, just fill out the contact form on my website.
New Price Point
For people who aren't in a place to create a coaching contract of several months, but want to do more than a single session, I've started offering 4 sessions for $350. This puts everyone paying just below the bottom of my sliding scale on the per-session price.
Fun with Facebook
I made a post in June that was shared twenty times--a new record. I wrote it on a day I was seriously sleep-deprived and sort of baffled by a certain situation. I also felt connected and aware of all that guides and supports me. I felt so grateful that, no matter what's happening, the way I live now, I just love my life. I had no idea what I was going to post when I sat down, and here's what came out of me:
Love your life right now (this very moment) exactly as it is. Even if you're sick, sad, tired, frustrated, overwhelmed; even if things are messy or aren't going your way or are going spectacularly WRONG--love your beautiful life. Love your privilege to be a human being grappling with a human life. Love all you don't know and let that very not-knowing be your entry into possibility, into all you haven't yet figured out. Love the mystery. Love.
