Trust in your longing to be free. This longing is your wake-up call. Literally.
Somewhere you know you’re not living as you, the real you. Do you want to know you? The real you?
The Art of Being Unabashedly Female is a curriculum that has been adapted specifically for women from the acclaimed Stanford University Graduate School of Business course, Creativity in Business. It is designed for women of all professions. There is only one criterion: you must be a woman longing to know and trust the truth of who you are. When you turn to the longing, the way will be revealed.
We’ll dive into discovering you, the real you. I’ll offer experiences and practices to deepen your discovery. You’ll come away with a new realization of what it means to be you in this female body, an understanding of your own creative process, and a deeper trust in your wise, intuitive and sensual nature, all born from your own experiences, insights and wisdom.
It seems that human beings are the only beings in nature that try very hard to be something other than what we are. Trees are trees, dogs are dogs, rocks are rocks, but we do everything in our power to be something better than what we believe ourselves to be. We distrust our nature, our innate, intuitive instinctive nature. And, as women, this distrust goes deeper. This drive to be something better can feel even more relentless due to the cultural voices that continually bombard us with messages that tell us our beauty is not enough without enhancement, our emotions must be checked if we are to be taken seriously, and our womanly nature cannot be trusted.
You have lived life pretending to be someone you think others will like better than who and what you believe yourself to be. But, the only way to true peace is to stop trying to be anything other than what you naturally are, and the good news I’m here to share is that when you stop trying to be what you aren’t, just like the tree, dog or rock, who you really are is already there, simply being you.
When you put down the ‘project’ and stop trying, something happens. When you turn inward to discover who you are, space opens within you, space to rediscover, remember and reclaim the sacredness of your nature that lives and breathes in a female body.
While you may believe creativity is about art and that only some are creative, what I know and teach is that creativity is available to everyone all the time and that it is our doorway to discovering who we really are.
When you know you are creative, you discover an internal willingness to look into the mystery within you.
Won’t you join me…
