🎉 Special Monday Announcement!


Hey Reader,

I know it’s Monday and I don’t usually send emails on these days, but I wanted to let you know that registration is now open for our May Inner Work Cohort!

In short, here’s who this cohort is for and what it's all about:

This cohort is for you if you feel like you’re just going through the motions and want to deepen your experience of meaning and presence in your life.

Over the course of 30 days, we’ll:

  • identify and engage a daily practice that brings together who we are and our sense of who we’re becoming,
  • share and interact with a supportive cohort community of fellow practitioners,
  • come together for nine workshops, including on Internal Family Systems and how to navigate conflict in a more life-honoring way,
  • and experiment with new inner work practices that can open us to a deeper connection to our inner life and personal story.

Here’s what a few of our recent cohort alumni have said about their experiences:

If you’re reading this and thinking “meh, this doesn’t sound quite right for me,” no worries and no pressure at all to register! I want to make sure this feels like a fit for you and your story.

But if this does sound like something that can support you, I invite you to sign up and join us in May. 🙂

It feels like a heaviness and a dread in my chest that just won’t let me go. And given my...

Hey Reader, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I refer to as “the gift percolating up from within me.” Some folks call this a “calling.” Others call it our “daimon” or reference the Japanese concept of “ikigai.” Gay Hendricks calls it our “Zone of Genius.” I think of it as the quality of living that is uniquely ours to nurture and bring forth in the world. And, when I’m present to my life, I notice this quality more and more. I notice when I’m engaging in work that doesn’t feel like work. Or...

Hey Reader, For the past two weeks, I've been sharing the 3-part framework that supports my approach to inner work. You can read the whole framework in one place here. The third and final fundamental is: Solidarity. A note about this framework: in our day-to-day life, there isn’t a “correct” or sequential pattern to any of this. Life is messy. But when we sit down and make time for focused inner work, I’ve noticed it can be helpful to work with these three fundamentals in a sequential, if...
