Step Into 2019 With Purpose: A Personal Development Workshop

Image for Youtube.jpg

Let's start 2019 together, connected and with a deep sense of purpose. 



I know, everyone is talking about purpose these days... What does that even mean? 

Our core values and purpose are what gives our lives meaning, they can guide our decisions and our behaviors... if we let them! Purpose is bigger than you or me, it's about what we give to the world and how we show up in it.

As humans, we go through stages of psychological development, and with each stage, our values and purpose change. In order to truly explore our purpose, we must be prepared to let go of the values we are given by our parents and the various cultures we belong to (family, work, city, country etc.) so we can embrace the values and purpose of our own unique self. We achieve this personal growth through self-development. 

In this intimate setting at the beautiful and inspirational xixi studio and with a maximum of 13 participants, you will dive into your own values and their alignment with your life. You will discuss, share and question what gives meaning to your life and how you can participate in making the world a better place for all. 

This workshop will take you through a deep introspective journey to start the year with clarity and connection. We will end with a beautiful guided visualization to help you step into 2019 confidently and purposefully.

Female Venture Summit: free online summit

HELLO THERE, SISTER

Make your own mold!

Female founders and business leaders are constantly told that they have to play the same game as men, while also having to be all the things a woman is expected to be. You need to be more assertive, more submissive, more of a go getter, a better pleaser, less you and more ideal.

Group Coaching for High Achievers: I'll Do It Myself!

Group Coaching for High Achievers: I'll Do It Myself!

6M8A9515.jpg

Did you know that "the rate at which people will actually help is understimated by roughly 48% by those who want to ask for help?". This statistic from Heidi Grant really shocked me!

Now, let's talk about you:

You are passionate.

You are driven.

You are a leader.

You are a high achiever and you never ask for help or accept it!

That's ok! I'm a high achiever too! I understand that you have incredible ideas and you want to turn them all into concrete plans, you want to do that yesterday and no one can do it better than you. You might even feel scared and shrink at the idea of asking for help. Do you know that this reaction is due to the way our brain is wired to scan for threats? We assume that we will get rejected... But go back to the statistic above! 

Now, did you know that people WANT to help? It makes them feel good and by not asking, you are basically robbing them of the experience of feeling good! 

Asking for help is uncomfortable, yucky, annoying, hurts your pride and ego?

If this is you, welcome to my world! You have knocked on the right door.

In our last Meetup, we talked about setting boundaries, this time, we'll talk about letting others help us. I just saw you cringe! Let's do this together, we have 2 hours to get started, and that includes some deep relaxation to help you slow down, reflect and gain a different perspective.

I can't wait for it!


Here is how those 2 hours of group coaching will go:

6-6.30 - Get to know each other: mingle and intros

6.30-7 - Presentation on being ok with asking for help + individual reflection activity

7-7.30 - Hot seat coaching for 2 or 3 people

7.30-7.45 - Yoga Nidra

7.45-8.00 - Final reflection

This is a community building event so you can pay what you can, starting at $10.

This event is sponsored by Harmless Harvest Coconut Water

Group Coaching for High Achievers Series: Setting Boundaries

You are passionate.

You are driven.

You are determined.

You are a high achiever.

That's ok! I'm one too. This means I understand that you have incredible ideas and you want to turn them all into concrete plans. I understand that you are incredibly successful at everything you do, yet, you think you're lazy and you don't dare tell others that things come easy to you. You can tell me - I feel that way too!

You can solve pretty much any problem that comes to you because you're not scared of taking action and risk... but that sometimes means you find it hard to focus on the long term. You are a little bit of a perfectionist, which is fantastic because you complete everything to an incredibly high standard, but you sometimes lose yourself in the details....

If this is you, welcome to my world! You have knocked at the right door!

I want to create a community in which it's ok to say "I'm a high achiever, I know that I can do anything I want and succeed but I'm lost and I don't know what it is I want to do."

I want to create a community in which it's ok to say "Everyone thinks I'm working hard and they are inspired by my work, but I don't feel fulfilled and the work that appears so hard doesn't actually challenge me."

One of the first things we need to do is help you set boundaries so you don't burn out. Let's do this together, we have 2 hours to get started, and that includes some deep relaxation to help you slow down to speed up!

I can't wait for it!

Here is how those 2 hours will go:

6-6.30 - Get to know each other: mingle and intros

6.30-7 - Presentation on setting boundaries + individual reflection activity

7-7.30 - Hot seat coaching for 2 or 3 people

7.30-7.45 - Yoga Nidra 

7.45-8.00 - Final reflection 

This is a community building event so you can pay what you can, starting at $20 and up to $50 no questions asked!

InPowered: Empowerment from the Inside Out

InPowered: Empowerment from the Inside Out (Pilot event)

Rewiring the Brain to Connect to Your Super Powers 

Introduction to InPowered

As women we are socialized to be pretty, polite, nurturing and nice. Becoming an empowered woman and leader means hacking and rewiring our brains in order to tap our true power. Vanessa Cameron from iSpark Collective and Dominique Mas from Lead with A Twist are thrilled to launch a live workshop series that provides a platform for women who want to connect or reconnect to themselves and cultivate their personal power.

No matter who we are, or where we’re from, we each have super powers. Sadly, in today’s world we’re often too busy, distracted or disconnected to access them on an ongoing basis. In order to sustain our creative potential, mental clarity and sense of confidence we must learn to connect to ourselves regularly by implementing these 7 InPowerment Practices.

The InPowered workshop will allow you to:

  • acquire the tools you need to develop these practices

  • formulate an action plan to bring your super powers to life for authentic InPowerment

  • reflect and recharge through yoga nidra (a deep relaxation technique that requires no movement)

Screen Shot 2018-10-04 at 11.07.44 AM.png


About Vanessa Cameron, iSpark Collective: Through working closely with a coach for nearly a year and avidly journaling about my experience I realized that there were 7 larger themes of things I felt I needed to work through to claim a sense of empowerment in myself and in my life. A super achiever by nature I rarely slowed down enough to connect to myself, yet my chronic autoimmune disease forced me to slow down, connect to my deeper sense of self, listen to my inner voice and manage my most precious resource: my spark and internal source of power.

About Dominique Mas, Lead With A Twist: After 15 years in educational leadership and 4 years of being a workshop leader for the International Baccalaureate Organization, I reflected on the transitions I had moved through in my life and soon realized these experiences were building towards starting my own private practice for coaching as well as designing and facilitating workshops to help others develop internal self-awareness. I combine my Masters in Leadership and Change, Coach Training with the NeuroLeadership Institute and my Yoga Teacher Training experience to lead and support the workshop participants as they identify their own ideal solutions and deeply connect to themselves to feel truly InPowered. 

Dominique and Vanessa met through Dreamers and Doers and are excited to share this method and practice with you and your company!

Outline of the one day workshop:

Throughout this workshop, you will:

  • Learn about the brain

  • Deeply reflect 

  • Connect to their body through breathing practice

  • Participate in small and large group discussions 

  • Reflect through yoga nidra, a deep relaxation technique that does not require movement


Session 1: 9.00-10.30: Connect to your values

Have you ever felt a disconnect between what you do and what you believe? Unfortunately, our behaviors often flow from our environment rather than our values.

In this session you will:

  • Identify your core values 

  • Consider how / if they drive your everyday life 

  • Frame the decisions you are making through the lens of your core values

Session 2: 10.45-12.15: Become the Empress of your Energy

Have you ever felt like you’re serving others but forgetting to take care of yourself? We know that paying attention to what fuels us and allowing ourselves recovery time is the only way to stay focused and productive as we lead others with purpose. 

In this session you will:

  • Consider what fuels you and drains you

  • Create a cheat sheet to recover faster

  • Learn how a state of flow helps you perform at your peak

Lunch: 12.15-1.15 (Not provided)

Session 3: 1.15-2.45: Own. Your. Power

Did you just say self-doubt? Impostor syndrome? We need to listen and trust ourselves in order to speak up, celebrate and challenge ourselves!

In this session you will:

  • Think deeply about your own relationship to confidence. 

  • Begin to own your achievements

  • Reframe your mindset to create a path to confidence

Session 4: 3.00-4.30: Yoga Nidra, Final Reflection, Written Feedback and Video Feedback

In this session you will lie down for 30 minutes and go through a deep relaxation process which includes visualization. This technique aims to relax the body to help you access the state between conscious and nonconscious, allowing you to process all the thinking you did through the day. The following 30 minutes will allow for final individual reflection time and a short group reflection.

The last 30 minutes of this event will be about feedback and ideas for improving the event. 

PLEASE BRING: 

- A yoga mat 

- Light blanket to cover yourself during yoga nidra 

PLEASE NOTE:

This is a pilot workshop! 

Future events will be priced around $350 for the day but we are offering the pilot for $75 for the WHOLE DAY!!! This will help us cover the cost of the venue etc.

In exchange, we will need your written feedback as well as some video feedback we can use to promote future events. We will also have a photographer present for the first session. We'll take a group shot at the end of the event.
