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)

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. 


- A yoga mat 

- Light blanket to cover yourself during yoga nidra 


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.
