RECLAIMING CHOICE: THE YES/No Workshop
If you had more time, you would sleep and do more yoga. You'd read books and watch movies, spend more time outside and connecting with the people you love. You would breathe, create, and follow your heart.
There isn't enough you to go around. I get it. Me, too, and my requests for minions, robots, or extra hours in the day continue to go unanswered. This means we have to find a better way.
Both workshops will utilize a variety of tools to wake up to the power of every No and every Yes, including affirmation, art, written personal reflection, group exploration, story healing, etc. There will be daily invitations delivered by email, two group healing sessions by phone (per workshop), and a discount on private sessions if you wish to add them for more in-depth healing.

10 Days of No

It's time for an integrity check around the way we are showing up in the world, the way we are showing up in our own lives. It all comes down to the way we spend each yes. If we want to say yes to what matters most, we need to reevaluate.
When we say no to that which is untrue for us, we make space to fulfill our own needs and desires. In a world that is far too willing to fill our lives with bullshittery, we must say no in order to say yes when it matters most.
It's as though we've forgotten that our life is constructed of bricks made of yes -- every door and window, the wide open transitions from room to room, the space between the place where we feed our families and the place where we make love. Those spaces, the space for much of what is most sacred in our lives, is made possible when we say no.
No isn't a hard word to say. In fact, it's one of the first words we learn to say when we are young. But we don't say no, do we? We don't say it often enough. Or at the very least, we are saying no at the moments when we most need to say yes.
Yes to health. Yes to love and deep connection with other human beings. Yes to new experiences and being brave. Yes to art and music and dance. Yes to the future, to a life filled with people, experiences, and things that are true for us.
This means saying no to old, tired habits that no longer serve us. And a no to more of the-same-because-that's-what-we-used-to-do. It's a no to putting everyone else's needs first and a no to whatever old programing that says when something dings, blings, and flashes, it needs our immediate attention.
