So many of the sensitive, kind, visionary and over-giving women who reach out to me, deeply desire to feel more comfortable in their own skin, yet it is something that eludes them. And whether or not they directly articulate it, they dearly desire to simply experience and express their true nature, in other words, to be themselves, their authentic selves.
They understand the connection between feeling uncomfortable in their own skin and how they hide and freeze when it comes to revealing themselves with others. They desire to embody and express themselves and their gifts.
Ironically, these same women often inspire others to fully embody and express themselves and their gifts. It is often a main tenet of their profession, but they find themselves in a cycle of over-giving.
These women are not new to personal development and spiritual growth. They’ve done the therapy, they’ve attended the yoga classes, they’ve tried meditation, they’ve self-cared up the wazoo. They also feel drawn to creative expression such as dance, improv, as well as embodied movement-based practices.
Despite their efforts to transform, a sense of shame remains at their core. On some level they are apologizing for simply existing.
They find themselves at the crossroads that Anais Nin so beautifully articulated last century, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
It is possible to be SEEN and known as our true radiant essence – our true nature – and still belong.
The Awakening Showgirl walks this path: from Alarmed Aloneness, Invisibility and Collapse to Authentic Embodiment, Sovereignty and Belonging.
This path is not about trying harder; it’s about feeling genuinely safer. It is an alternative route to creating a deeply satisfying life.
My greatest joy is to witness women step into their authentic presence, radiance, power and sha-ZAM, and truly share themselves – with themselves, others and the world.
Which is why I’m offering this mini-class/mini-show.
What you’ll receive from this 3-hour workshop + mini-show ...
You’ll learn the 3 pillars of Showgirl Awakening and how they are key to living a deeply satisfying embodied life.
You’ll discover why feeling safer, rather than trying harder, is often the missing ingredient when it comes to trusting yourself, feeling like yourself, and creating and sharing of yourself as you desire.
You’ll learn a few movement practices to ground yourself in any moment and gently exfoliate what’s been masking your radiant essence.
You’ll be introduced to the 9 Showgirl Awakening Archetypes (the Vixen, the Muse, the Diva, etc), and even more importantly, will learn how to recognize when each of your Archetypes are Collapsing or Posturing or Alive & Well
You'll leave with a full cup from witnessing 3 Awakening Showgirls perform the conscious burlesque acts they have created in the Burlesque from the Inside Out creation program.
I am currently offering this workshop at no charge.
It is open to all woman-identifying folks.
I warmly invite you to join me!
With Love and Shimmies,
PPS This is not one of those ‘free events’ where, when you arrive, you discover it’s actually a sales pitch. My intention is to facilitate an engaging and healing workshop and mini-show with tangible take-aways and practices.
Each time I offer this workshop, it's different. How I lead it depends on who's present. It's the kind of workshop you can attend multiple times and receive benefits each time. Some have attended it 6-10x! For May 19, it's free for all, first timers and repeaters alike! In the past I've charged sliding scale $25-$150.
Towards the end of the workshop, for no more than 5 minutes, I will let you know about my current offerings.
To learn about one of them now, you can read about my primary offering – the Burlesque from the Inside Out creation program here.
I’m limiting the number of seats to create an in-person feel; so please only book a place if you intend on attending. If you’d like to come but the dates don’t work, sign up to receive my email updates below and you will receive notification of future dates and other events:
