Authentic Women’s Groups

Each Group is limited to 8 women.

With the isolation of the pandemic, we need supportive places more than ever. Research of the female brain shows we uniquely process stress and pain in the community of other women; sharing and hearing our stories and supporting each other to grow and shine authentically. The Authentic Women’s Groups will go deeply into working with somatic practices to finding your inherent health even in these challenging times. We’ll be both flexible and structured to create safety and challenge you to keep growing and going… with authenticity.

In these Authentic Women’s Groups you’ll find you can be fully authentic with tragedy, triumph, and aspirations.
Although each woman’s story is unique and nuanced, there are common threads in both injuries and in healing.
Commit to Yourself and the Group.

Registration is Open For April and May Groups Now!

Groups meet 2 hours a week on Zoom.
Cost: $100 per month

Has your past trauma eclipsed your joy today?

· Is pain from the past hiding in the shadows? Do you feel you have worked to release it and just cycles back?

· Do you suffer from fear or worry or have over-blown reactions you cannot explain?

· Are you feeling isolated?

· Do you have “long-hauler Covid” or suffer the loss of a loved one during the pandemic?

· Were you a nurse or essential worker during the pandemic and just feel burnt out?

· Is it hard for you to feel safe, even sometimes in your own home?

· Is it hard for you to tell your own stories of trauma or pain?

· Do you think (or have you been told) you are being “dramatic” “too much” or try to make excuses for not being your full self?

· Do you find yourself isolating? Even sometimes feeling isolated with other people there?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, we know the group would benefit you.
