How many times have you held yourself back by not speaking your needs? Whether it’s asking for a raise, voicing your opinion, or saying “no” when it doesn’t feel right to you, learning to advocate for ourselves can set us free.
There may be strong habits to be agreeable, quiet and easy-going…especially for women. It’s culturally acceptable, yet soul-sucking to go along with the status quo to appease people. When we clear blockages around speaking, asking for what we need, letting go of others’ reactions, the result is freedom, authenticity, and often a wild form of compassion. In this workshop, we’ll shed light on these habits and begin the work of breaking through habits, thoughts, energy patterns, and actions that reinforce quiet. This isn’t about tearing people down, blaming, or shaming others, this is about doing our own work so that we feel freedom around using our voice to stand up for ourselves, create a boundary, and ask for what we need.
In this truly eclectic experience, we’ll journey through:
-group processes (games essentially) to help loosen up the voice and overcome fear (and have fun too)
-meditations you can take with you specifically designed to release blockages around speaking and being heard
-ceremony to clear deep-seated patterns
-group discussion as an avenue to explore topics related to speaking and being heard
-activities in dyads to practice overcoming blockages and creating new habits
