Bodacious Boundaries
A three-month playshop to create rock-solid boundaries

My apologies. Unforeseen circumstances have caused me to need to cancel this program.

My fellow sensitive soul,

You know you're different, don't you?

 

You've always suspected you were more sensitive than everyone else around you. You don't process emotions, stimulus or experiences like others. You're in tune with things that other people can't see, feel or sense.

And I imagine that just getting through the challenges of modern life can be overwhelming at times, especially if the people around you don't understand that you need a different kind of environment and support system in order to thrive. 

I believe empaths are here for a cosmic purpose: to help humanity ascend to the next level of consciousness. But it's hard to focus on something so lofty when you can barely manage to go to the grocery store without having a meltdown. 

I know you want a more fulfilling life.

Let's just call a thing a thing here...the last two years have been brutal.

 

I know so many empaths who have struggled - being in close quarters with people who don't understand them or won't respect their boundaries. Or being in very public jobs where the accumulated tension from the pandemic is so high they come home at night feeling completely shredded. Or any number of impossible circumstances.

The pandemic has left so many of us reeling. I've had to adjust my energy practice (and adjust it again), clear my aura and home space more frequently, and really stay in touch with my inner landscape. My self-care, energy hygiene, and spiritual practices have had to evolve to keep up with these rapidly changing times.

 

As difficult and challenging as the world situation is right now, humanity is still in a cycle of ascension. And as empaths we are here to help hold more light!

In order to pull ourselves out of deficit and be the way-showers we know we were meant to be, we absolutely must have unapologetically rock-solid boundaries. Otherwise, we will never be able to overcome external pressures and expectations, manage overwhelm, hear our own voice, ask for what we need, retain our life force, and stay centered and grounded in our authentic selves.

 

In your process of applying emotional, energetic and physical boundaries...

  • Do you feel like there are holes in your understanding or implementation?

  • Is your boundary-drawing inconsistent: easy one day, impossible the next?

  • Is it hard for you to hear yourself amongst everyone else's needs and expectations?

  • Do you plug your energy leaks only to find the next day you're "leaky" again?

  • Is it easier to throw up walls than to do the tougher work of being present with yourself?

  • Are you easily overwhelmed, or find it chal-lenging to stay centered and on an even keel?

  • Do you build up your resolve, but then choke when it comes time to speak?

  • Do you draw a boundary and then wonder why everyone ignores it?

As empaths we want to evolve from mere surviving to ecstatically thriving. Boundaries include being able to say no, ask for what you need, maintaining the integrity of your energy container, using your tools to clear your field and reduce overwhelm, identifying your leaky energy patterns and remedying them, and recognizing when you need self-care before your level of debilitation hits red line.

 

Think about this...

 

  • You might have great self-care, but if your energetic-emotional-psychic boundaries are not solid, you'll continue to leak energy and be depleted.
     

  • You might be good at saying no, but if you don't have a consistent energy hygiene practice you'll continue to struggle with overwhelm.
     

  • You might have identified your major energy leaks, but if can't ask for what you need, you'll continue to feel frustrated and unseen.
     

  • You might have figured out how to stay out of overwhelm, but if you can't stay grounded in your own center, you'll continue to feel ineffective or powerless.

Lack of boundaries can contribute to codependent relationships, feeling like a victim, being a doormat, low self-esteem, constantly struggling with overwhelm, taking on everyone else's emotions and problems, and having little to no sense of self. (Any of those feel familiar?)

I get it...good, solid, comprehensive, unshakeable boundaries are a challenge because it is easier and more natural for us to blend and merge with other people. It is much more difficult to distinguish where we end and the next person begins.

 

Through much trial and error I have figured out that it takes a multi-level approach to stay sane, centered and certain. I want you to have the same tools and awarenesses!

 

So I created a brand new playshop series where I share the three main components of rock-solid boundaries...

BODACIOUS BOUNDARIES! 

 

This 3-month series starts February 3 which is also Imbolc (an auspicious day because it is the cross-quarter point half-way between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.)

Bodacious Boundaries is comprised of three "mini-programs" where we'll focus on these vital components of rock-solid boundaries:

  • Finding your authentic no

  • Identifying and plugging energy leaks

  • Managing and mastering overwhelm

Man with light circle.jpg

In my signature style of big-picture context and rubber-meets-the-road practicality, I'll share with you everything I've learned about boundaries.

Here's how the series breaks down...

Mandala logo_edited.png

Part One: Find Your No
February 3, 10 & 17

Most empaths, especially earlier in life, have a difficult time saying no. Sometimes we don't even know it's an option! Empaths value peace and harmony so we are often people pleasers, doormats, or push-overs.  It's very uncomfortable (even excruciating) to rock the boat, and our hearts of service tend to put everyone else first and us last.

Saying no is a powerful act of self-definition!

In this segment of our three-part series, you'll learn:

  • Why walls are not the same as boundaries and how walls get erected in the first place

  • How to identify when you get triggered, and tools to stay present so you can consciously draw a boundary based in present-time circumstances

  • The 3 types of no

  • The critical importance of grounding and how that affects your ability to draw, and hold, a boundary

  • How to prepare yourself for difficult conversations

  • What's happening at an energetic level when you draw a boundary

  • How and when to apply consequences as a part of your boundary drawing

  • Practical exercises to help you distinguish what is and is not yours, how to identify your truth, and how to re-center yourself when you're thrown off balance

  • Energy hygiene practices to tend to your sovereign energy field and keep it free of other people's opinions, expectations and influence

Plus I'll give you lots of scripts and examples of what you can say in different circumstances, and a variety of worksheets, logs and checklists to make it all easier for you. We'll also have plenty of time for embodied practices during our sessions! 

Each class period is two hours in length starting at 11:00 a.m. CST on Thursday February 3, 10 and 17.

Part Two: Plug Those Energy Leaks
March 3, 10 & 17

We are energy beings. When we aren't aware of our energy patterns (like how different energies affect us, our coping mechanisms, or how we react to triggers) and when don't tend to our energetic container, we develop leaks. (And we ALL have leaks!)

In addition, our energy body is dynamic and ever-changing, being affected both by our internal world (thoughts, emotions, mindset, etc.) and the external world (environmental influences, other people's emotions, world crises, etc.). This complexity means we have to be mindful and attentive to the state of our energy body or we'll "lose the bubble" quickly.

In this segment of our three-part series, you'll learn:

  • The properties of your energy container

  • How "leaky" you are in four major aspects: money, power, pleasure (sexuality) and creativity

  • The two types/directions of energy leaks

  • If you are primarily a "cave-in" leaker or a "blow-out" leaker

  • The remedy for these two categories of leak 

  • How to maintain the integrity of your edges

  • How to create protection

  • How to strengthen your energetic container

  • What types of leaks are specific to each chakra

You'll get lots of handouts, diagrams and worksheets as well as embodied practices to help you deepen your understanding.

 

As a bonus you'll also get access to a 30-minute video on energy leaks from one of my Facebook live guest teaching presentations.

Each class period is two hours in length starting at 11:00 a.m. CST on Thursday March 3, 10 and 17.

Part Three: Ousting Overwhelm
March 31, April 7, 14

Overwhelm is the bane of the empath. With our highly sensitive nervous system and energetic physiology we can be easily overwhelmed by crowds, loud noises, scents, lighting, our to-do list, care-taking others, sorting out whose emotions are whose, world events, and myriad other stimulus.

Jon Kabat-Zinn says overwhelm is the feeling "that our lives are somehow unfolding faster than the human nervous system and psyche are able to manage well." Boy can I relate! After over 20 years of practice, I still have to keep a watchful eye on this one.

In this segment of our three-part series, you'll learn:

  • Your specific triggers to clearly identify when you are approaching, or in (or way past) overwhelm

  • How to build an effective daily energy hygiene practice

  • The concept of your "energy bank account" and how to keep your balance high

  • Tools for clearing yourself and your space

  • A revealing litmus test to help you understand what saps your energy

  • A new self-care paradigm grounded in self-love instead of sacrifice

  • New mindsets and habits to reclaim your life force for you

There will be plenty of time for sharing, practicing and asking questions. And of course, handouts, diagrams, worksheets, and more to support your integration and learning.

 

Plus you'll receive as a bonus an extensive list of energy clearing tools and practices to raise your vibratory frequency.

Each class period is two hours in length starting at 11:00 a.m. CST on Thursday March 31 and April 7 and 14.

Completion, Q&A and Celebration
April 21

In our final session of the series we'll reflect on our progress, engage in ritual to integrate our new mindsets, practices and awarenesses, share experiences, ask questions, and bring completion to our journey together.

And, by that time I'll probably have something else fun up my sleeve ;)

This final session will be two hours in length starting at 11:00 a.m. CST on Thursday April 21.

Want additional support? Purchase the upgrade package!

 

When learning new habits, we are often confronted with old patterns, triggers and wounds that get activated. These energies can create blocks in our ability to implement what we're learning. Or we start to establish new habits and then end up self-sabotaging or falling back into the old familiar ways.

Sometimes students want extra time and attention to help personalize their energy hygiene or self-care practices, or coaching to work through a tricky "saying no" situation. Some need help identifying their unhealthy patterns so they can recognize them when they come up. Others require additional time, tools or skills to integrate what they are learning.

If you desire additional one-on-one support, I invite you to consider purchasing an upgrade package. In this enhanced package you'll receive everything you get in the program above, plus:
