How to empower your inner warrior

I have just finished leading a leadership retreat for women in Mexico. I have been teaching meditation retreats for women for the last 5 years at a very special place in Mexico, Playa Viva. This week is always one of my favorite weeks of the year. Why? Well, the place is one of the most special I have ever been too. The private beach, the ability to really be and listen deeply, the food, staff, and the abundant nature everywhere. It is also a deep dive of teaching, coaching, and living and breathing whatever the theme of the week is. Every year the theme shifts a bit, but it is always based in clear seeing and dharma. This year I knew intuitively that I wanted to bring in more skills and practices to support leaders rising with more authenticity, empowerment, and well being.

What is the secret sauce in making a good decision? Amazing video and interview

Power of She- Interview 1

I hope you are well. As many of you know, a big part of my work in the last decade has been in supporting men and women to bring their full selves to work and home. With that said, a lot of my work has been supporting women of all ages and stages. I have supported younger women students at Stanford, middle and older age women that are helping professionals who attend my professional trainings at UC Berkeley, thousands of women in my workshops, public classes, and meditation retreats, women leaders at work, and women clients who I support as an executive life coach. I feel incredibly honored to have supported so many women to find their voice, bring their full self forward, lead from what really matters, and change patterns that are not serving them, so they can be their best and brightest selves.

At this time in the world, I am feeling MORE called to support the feminine to rise and lead.READ MORE...

Lead Yourself – Lead your life

In the last few years, I have been increasingly interested in the subject of leadership. To lead yourself and your life well, you don’t necessarily have to be in a leadership role in a company. Real leadership is remembering that you have choice in how you respond to everything that comes your way in life. When we lead from our innate wisdom and clarity, we can stay accountable to the choices we make and choose wisely. A person who leads and conducts themselves with integrity and from a calm, compassionate, and authentic place can have such an impact on everyone around them. We all influence one another, whether that is being a stay at home mom/dad or an executive with 300 employees underneath him.

How does one lead well?

Life can often feel overwhelming, there are many tasks and responsibilities to juggle, we have the constant of technology, we are responsible to friends, family, and we can’t give or support all of our life, if we aren’t taking good care of ourselves emotionally and physically.… READ MORE...
