A 6 session group coaching program to learn self-care practices that can expand your capacity to meet your challenges and develop your potential.
Access higher levels of joy, energy, and wellbeing through increasing your connection to yourself, others, and your source.
Starting Tuesday, November 1st, 6:30pm CST. Dates include November 1, 8, 15, 29, December 6, 13.
What would it be like if you could meet your challenges with grace and ease?
How would it feel to be able to consistently relate to yourself and others with compassion and an open heart without getting overwhelmed?
How would it feel to have more energy, focus and a clearer vision to accomplish your soul’s desire?
I created this new group coaching program, Level UP your Self-care: Energy Tools for Resilience, Balance and Transformation to address those questions. I will share many of the foundational principles I have learned over the years in addition to key practices that I learned or developed in my own healing journey, my training and almost a decade of working one to one and with groups.
Yes, times are challenging and there is a growing sense that there is no going back to some kind of “normal.” Something has shifted and we live in a different world. However, humanity has faced challenging times in the past and then moved to a higher level of operating. We grow through challenge.
“Leveling up” our self-care is necessary for our own health and well-being and the health and future of our planet.
I’m hearing a lot of hopeless talk from people of all ages facing daily news reports of war, financial instability, and climate change. I hear from those I work with and in my social circles that what used to work to help them find balance and feel good just isn’t working now. The last 3 years have left many exhausted and wondering what’s next. Our nervous systems have been on overdrive.
The Ripple Effect
The truth is we don’t know what’s next. We have this moment and then the next, each ripe with potential. I believe our responsibility now is to become more kind, more authentic, and more creative human beings. Every day we have a choice to contract and protect against life or expand ourselves and express INTO life.
In this program, you will learn some ways to start doing this. This is the work of our times as we are all connected and our state of being or consciousness affects the whole. Like a pebble dropped into a pool of water, your energy ripples out and has far reaching affects.
My late father shared his philosophy with my children when he was in a memory care facility several years ago. In a beautiful moment of lucidity, he told my kids that each of them was necessary – that humanity is like a puzzle and each of us is a necessary part of that puzzle. He said the key is to find what sparks you, what you love, what inspires and gives you joy. It is in that we find our natural purpose that contributes to the whole.
We can’t find our inner spark when we are focused on the fear. We can’t find it when we are in isolation and disconnection from others. We can’t find it when we disconnect from ourselves through busyness and constant distractions. It is not sustainable for our health to be in a constant state of nervous system reactivity. In essence we have come to a place to make a choice; fear and contraction or love and expansion.
How do we choose expansion? It takes courage and the desire for it first and then through daily intention and self-care practice. It is through retraining the mind, body and heart with simple energy tools that will empower you to live your life with more resources to meet your challenges and increase your connection to your whole self, to others and to your Source.
Over 6 sessions, we will explore 6 different powerful energy tools and connect with each other as we create a safe, uplifting, and supportive community of learners and explorers.
These mind-body-spirit tools are easy, enjoyable, and based in cutting edge science, and contemplative and ancient healing traditions. At their foundation they are about elevating your awareness and perspective and tending to and befriending yourself. From here, you can relax your nervous system and restore your energy levels which will enable you to increase your capacity to give to others, meet your demands and enjoy your life!
Please note that each topic could be an in-depth course. In this program an introductory overview will be given in order to give information and context for the energy tool presented. Each session will be recorded so you can access it on your own time.
I look forward to taking this journey with you,
Get to know yourself as an energetic being and learn to balance your energy through grounding so you can feel clear and centered.
Quantum physics has been around since the late 1800’s/early 1900’s. It is the study of matter and energy at the most fundamental level uncovering the nature of the very building blocks of nature. Our bodies are part of nature thus there is much to learn about energy as it relates to our health and wellbeing. However, this science has been very slow to catch up and integrate into our traditional health care system which is based on the old materialist point of view.
It is time to learn and incorporate energy based self-healing and self-care techniques into our day to day lives. Learn about this robust field and what it means for our health, our felt experience of ourselves and our vitality.
In module 1 we will explore:
Learn the science of inter and intra-connection. Increase your connection to your whole self, others, and your Source.
One of the effects of trauma or stress is that it puts you in a state of fight/flight/freeze. These states disconnect you from others and your higher self. Many researchers have been documenting the effectiveness of compassionate connection and creating coherence to heal from individual and collective trauma and recover from stress. Connection and compassion can rewire the nervous system, decrease pain, improve relationships and more!
In module 2 we will explore:
Learn about your energy boosters and busters and create your own energy boosting self-care plan.
We can think of our natural capacity for energy or vitality as an energy bank. If we are given 100 energy bucks per day, how do you spend them? How many withdrawals do you do? What do you do to add to the balance? When we look upon everything in our lives from the perspective of energy, we quickly see what we need to add or let go of. This is how we increase resilience and build sustainable vitality.
In module 3 we will explore:
Use the chakra system to see your challenges from a higher perspective. Gain insight and clarity into your challenges and choices.
Much of our stress response or what makes us suffer is due to our belief systems and limited ways we perceive ourselves and the world; this is our level of consciousness. We can use the ancient system of the chakras as a guidepost for how we relate to our self and the world. Shifting to a higher level of perceiving often gives us the answers we are looking for or automatically allows us to let go of what no longer serves us.
In module 4 we will explore:
Access the energy of flow and ease with the union of opposites including inner masculine/feminine forces. This allows for recovery and prevention from burnout, adrenal fatigue, and other diseases of imbalance.
Originating thousands of years ago in Chinese culture and Taoism, Yin and Yang represent the dynamic balance of opposites and the process of life that is ever unfolding and changing. They are opposite yet interdependent. For example, we can’t have day without night. Both create a whole day. Looking at the opposite energies within us can reveal imbalances and ways of bringing your life into greater harmony, improving your health and well-being on all levels.
In module 5 we will explore:
With love, all things are possible. Learn about and experience the many benefits of the healing power of love.
Love redirects our focus, our physiology and our energy away from stress and fear towards something positive, life-giving and expansive. This opens our mind, body, heart and energy field to attune to the creative life force which is in essence an intelligent field of potential.
In module 6 we will explore the Healing Power of Love

Benefits of Group Coaching:
Intention circles are small groups of people that come together once/week to share support and healing intention for circle members. Human beings have been coming together to support each other in this way in a variety of spiritual traditions for thousands of years. Recently, Lynn McTaggert has documented research on the incredible results of the power of intention in more than 35 scientific experiments. I have participated in many circles and witnessed many amazing outcomes. In this program, we will form circles (optional) and each member will get a turn to request a specific focus of the group’s collective intention for the week.
