A six month co-creative mentoring journey for heart-inspired women entrepreneurs called to share their gifts with courage, wisdom and grace.
Starting January, 2016.
I warmly invite you be one of 8 Feminine Leaders in a brand new Mentoring Circle I’m hosting, called Leading With Feminine Wisdom.
It’s for women entrepreneurs and change makers who are called to make a more Soul-aligned contribution with their inherent gifts and feel ready to rise to the next expression of their authentic leadership.
As you probably know, aligning your work with your deeper calling is a challenging journey to take alone. So the purpose of this Circle is to provide a rich, co-creative resource of feminine wisdom, inspiration, healing and guidance to support you, as you take your transformative work out into the world.
In essence, it’s a nourishing ‘birthing space’ for the heart-inspired dreams we hold as women who want to play our part in creating a new paradigm of leadership. One which honours the feminine within and around us, whilst we make a difference through our heart-led initiatives, creative projects and businesses.
Is this for you?
You may have already succeeded in your business or work in many ways, but now there’s a new creative ‘edge’ facing you. It’s one that’s calling you to discover and express more of who you really are and have an impact in the world in a way that only you can. It’s time to sing your song.
Being a leader isn’t necessarily new to you, but this time it feels different. The old ‘masculine’ ways of achieving in the world don’t work for you any more. You want to honour your innate feminine wisdom and find a more authentic, nourishing way to lead your transformative work and live by the values you stand for as a woman.
Whether you’re re-aligning an existing business or you’ve just started afresh, it’s challenging to do any of this alone. Creating your ‘true work’ often catalyses a huge transition that can feel like a tumultuous and vulnerable ride. After all, it’s not just your work that is changing. You are too. How you relate to yourself, your work and life is in a profound process of transformation.
So you might be feeling...
- Overwhelmed by the potential of your vision and struggling to ground it with clarity and sustainability.
- A fear of 'being seen’ as you step more authentically into visibility as a leader.
- Stuck on the treadmill of busyness, avoiding the riskier actions or creative space you need to take.
- Waves of self-doubt about your inner wisdom, guidance and capacity to ‘succeed’ on your terms.
- Conflicted about your ‘feminine’ and ‘masculine’ energies and how to have them flowing together in your leadership.
- A need for more support, creative feedback and shared experience from other women on a similar path.
How will this Mentoring Circle support you?
Leading with Feminine Wisdom brings together the transformative power of a sacred Women’s Circle with the co-creative support and accountability of a business or leadership mentoring or mastermind group. It’s purpose is help you to tap into your innate feminine strengths and follow your heart’s guidance whilst taking action to move your transformative work out into the world.
It will provide you with a powerful ‘hub’ of support and mentoring guidance, not only from me but also from the whole Circle of wise, heart-centred Feminine Leaders on a similar path to you. It will give you space to attune to the deeper feminine wisdom of your body, your intuition, your emotions, your spiritual essence and nature around you… and let this guide and strengthen your leadership.
But being a Feminine Leader isn’t just about reconnecting with your feminine energy. It’s about integrating the ‘healthy feminine’ with the ‘healthy masculine’ within you, so that you can take action that brings your true capacity as a conscious women into a world that sorely needs your contribution.
So we’ll focus on both the external and internal paths of your leadership journey by helping you to:
- Share your unique gift and take your business, project or social initiative to the next level of inspired contribution. (The external ‘Project Path’)
- Maintain an open heart, staying true to who you are and connected to the deeper knowing of your Soul journey, your feminine values, strengths and innate wisdom. (The internal 'Soul Path')
You’ll receive creative feedback, guidance and profound support from me and the whole Circle at an emotional, practical and spiritual level with the initiative, project or business you are leading.
This ‘whole-circle’ support will also help you as a leader to:
- Stay true to your authentic identity, expressing what you stand for as an inspiring catalyst for change.
- Find the deeper truths and gifts that are present in every challenge you face.
- Transform the old voices of fear and doubt and own your unique value as a woman and leader.
- Align with the deeper ‘Soul Purpose' of your leadership and let go of distractions that don't serve it.
- Sustain your well-being by creating nourishing support 'structures' that resource you and your business.
- Take inspired, courageous action from the guidance of your heart’s deeper knowing .
- Open to the greater field of support and co-creation from people and life around you.
- Lead your work with love and integrity at the heart of your service to others.
How will the Mentoring Circle work?
Our Circle is small because we value intimacy. We want to foster authentic, meaningful relationships and co-creativity, as well as high levels of individual support and engagement for everyone.
With twice monthly meetings online, together we’ll co-create a safe, generative ‘container’ to share challenges, wisdom, insights and care in a way that allows each woman to receive the support they need and give the value of the wisdom and leadership they bring. We’ll discover through collective intention and practice out in 'the field’ of our projects, what it’s really like to be Leading With Feminine Wisdom and how to support one another wholeheartedly with this inner and outer journey of transformation.
During the first 2 months, l’ll introduce you to a guiding Circle Design of 8 Core Principles and Practices that have ancient roots in Earth Wisdom teachings. I call it 'The Feminine Wisdom Circle'.
Using this inspiring ‘whole person’ framework as a guiding structure, we’ll take a quest, individually and collectively to discover and engage our feminine wisdom. Although this work infuses all areas of your life, you’ll be invited to choose a ‘Transformative Leadership Project’ (TLP) that you want to bring to fruition and use this as the creative focus of your learning and integration.
