Who Is Leading Your Life? No really.. Who is calling the shots? Who is communicating with others at home and at work? Who determines the actions and the lack of action? Parts of us like fear, anger and grief all want the job. And perhaps have the job (full-time or part-time) by default.

This workshop, is about putting you (the real, authentic you) into your rightful leadership role, making it less likely that other parts of us will need to take over as captain.

To do this, we’ll learn about our own internal mental/emotional/physical system, the mechanics of how it operates and how to harmonize it through an evidence-based psychotherapy model called Internal Family Systems (IFS). We’ll learn the the story of our internal parts and the jobs they are doing. Through innovative guided practices, we will learn ways of accessing Self directly, establishing a transformative environment for healing, rest and growth

Join us to uncover pathways towards becoming Self-led and the practice of embodied authentic leadership.
