If you’re a professional and/or a mom who still isn’t quite sure how ‘self-care’ fits into your frantic schedule, here’s a question for you:
If there was a way to figure out what self-care truly means to you that doesn’t leave you watching To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before for the fifth time just because you’re so overwhelmed about what to do when you find yourself with a moment alone...
...would you finally be able to create the rituals you need to connect with your spiritual self and reignite the magic and meaning in your life?
I know that all the balls you’re juggling in your work and family life leaves you feeling like the moments that matter most to you just fly right on by.
The frantic pace that propels you forward each day...week...month...year...it leaves you wondering how the heck you manage to keep up and remain grounded in what matters to you most.
You care about the big things in life, but you appreciate the importance of the little things, too. The new flower blooming in your yard, the changing shape of the moon in the night sky, or choosing the slightly more expensive chocolate because it has a prettier wrapper. It’s these moments of wonder and awe that remind you to take it all in.
But sometimes, you feel as though you’ve traded away some of the wonder and awe of your everyday in exchange for the adrenaline drip of a busy calendar, or the dopamine hit of a Candy Crush cascade.
I know that choosing yourself and caring for yourself isn’t easy when you’re taking care of all the things for all the people you care about.
But I also know that it’s possible to honor your personal and spiritual connection to reignite the magic of the ordinary…
—even if you don’t have the option to jetset off to Bali for a month to explore your spiritual callings.
—even if you’d rather not force a Facebook sabbatical just to become more present in your very real, beautifully messy life,
—even if you don’t know what sacred rituals would look like for you,
—even if it feels like the only activity you have enough headspace for is hopping on Netflix to watch another episode of The Great British Baking Show or Queer Eye.
I’m here to make it feel easier to receive the most from your precious moments of solitude so you can get back in touch with that rich world inside you.
What is self-care?
Self-care doesn’t have to involve a nail salon, day spa, or your ensuite bathroom.
Self-care is whatever you need to do to be able to show up as your full-self in the world. It’s what allows you to be more of the person you already are.
I create experiences for you that help you take meaningful pauses in your hectic life. I’m here to help you connect to more of your true self through practices of ritual.
It’s an opportunity to truly look inward when the culture is telling you to look everywhere else.
Through our work together, you’ll be able to uncover and implement the meaningful rituals that create the ‘pause’ button you’re looking for.
I know that these intentional creations of sacred space and rituals and rhythms are the best way to create meaningful touchpoints in a life of purposeful authenticity.
I would love to walk this path with you in one of two ways…
A bespoke experience for those seeking a strong dose of self-care in the form of a mini-retreat or a focused short-term practice.
Accountability & structure to make your self-care wishlist a reality OR crafting a personal ritual or celebration for your sacred season.
Who is this for?
This is for you if:
You’re overwhelmed by all the things you *could* be doing in the precious time you have to yourself, to the point where you end up mostly feeling guilty that you didn’t spend that time effectively.
You’re a little bit (or quite) familiar with the language of Judeo-Christian traditions, but you’re also open to the wisdom that lies outside of that.
You’ve felt a sense of ‘maybe I need to do things a bit differently to achieve the vision I have for my life’ and you’re interested to explore what that looks like for you.
This isn’t for you if:
The idea of spending time to reconnect with a power greater than yourself is a bit too ‘woo-woo’ or squishy for you.
Your values dictate that religion and spirituality stay separate from one another.
You’re already expertly balancing purpose + rest with everything else in your life.
What if I don’t know where to start?
I know and you know there are so many possibilities within self-improvement landscape—it’s overwhelming! Whichever way we work together, I guide & mentor you to uncover the rituals and rhythms that will be most meaningful to you. Leave the heavy lifting to me.
Am I religious enough?
Maybe you only have a little familiarity with a traditional Christian religion, or maybe you have more than a little.
Whether you’re the kind of person who went to youth group with your friend a few times in high school and thought it was kinda cool, or you’ve been raised in the church your whole life and you’re still there—or anywhere in between—it’s all good!
My personal spiritual background involves growing up and continuing to participate practice and presence in my community’s Presbyterian Church. I encourage you to own whatever religious and/or spiritual background you claim.
Am I spiritual enough?
Spirituality can mean many things to many different people. All I want you to know is that if you find yourself called to connect with a power greater than yourself and you’re open to the wisdom that’s available through many traditions and places, then you’re in the right place.
What if I’m not a creative person?
You don’t need to identify as a creative person in order to find meaningful self-care rituals and rhythms that help you connect with yourself. Any creative exercises created for you are tailored specifically to you, and are made up of the right mix of extending you toward a place of growth all while still not stressing you out.
I’ve tried meditation before and it didn’t work. Is this the right place for me?
Meditation is defined in lots of different ways, but also—maybe meditation is just not for you! When we work together, I navigate the way through the woods to find what *is* perfectly suited to you, whether it’s something you’ve considered before, or something that’s an entirely new experience.
Can’t I do this myself?
So often, the meaningful changes you want to make can be elusive. But a lot can shift in a short space of time with some purposeful outside perspective.
When you work with me, you’ll be collaborating with someone who is:
...entirely focused on you,
...committed to understanding what matters to you most,
...able to guide you through questions that help to understand yourself better,
...and can then connect and curate all of this shared insight into something that’s clear to take action on.
If any of the above is connecting with a greater sense of weight than just a passing consideration, I’d love to connect.
