    How to Craft a Vision for 2022 with Self-Compassion & Ease

    How to Craft a Vision for 2022 with Self-Compassion & Ease

    We have officially entered 2022, but just because the date on the calendar has changed, doesn't mean that the circumstances of our lives will immediately shift or change for the better. 

    There can be so much hype around new-year goal setting and planning. While I personally love to reflect, vision and plan, I've also found that it's critical to be patient, gentle and loving in the process. Otherwise, we run the risk of yet another opportunity to set ourselves up to lose confidence, self-trust and efficacy when it comes to our most important dreams and goals. 

    In this audio, I walk you through many of the core steps I use to reflect, dream and plan for the upcoming year. You will learn:
    Some simple, yet powerful questions to ask yourself as you review the past year and everything that has transpired.How to consciously release, complete and close 2021 if you haven't done so already.How to give yourself creative permission to brainstorm, dream and envision life for the new year, even if you end up choosing NOT to pursue certain things.Effective ways to simplify, reduce overwhelm and hone in on the few most important things you want to actively focus on in the new year.How to set yourself up for success throughout the year to re-visit your goals and dreams so that they don't end up collecting dust and leading to disappointment down the road.Enjoy and may you have a gentle and easeful start to 2022!

    Part 2: How to Create a Conscious Ending

    Part 2: How to Create a Conscious Ending

    Last week I sent out a podcast all about how to create conscious endings because it is something I have been thinking a lot about personally and I hoped it would be of value--what I didn't realize was just how much this would resonate with so many of you!

    From all of your emails and messages (thank you!) I can tell we  struck a chord on this whole conscious endings theme, so this week I decided to dig a bit deeper into the subject and make a part 2 of how to create a conscious ending. 
    In this week's episode I cover:
    How to identify and acknowledge our default patterning around endings.The most common forces that influence how we tend to do endings. How to assess whether or not our style of endings is working for us (or not).How to evolve or change the way that we do endings so that we can experience more wholeness, completion and freedom.Reframing the concept of "finishing strong" and how to end things in a way that supports growth and healing as opposed to a way that recapitulates trauma and pain.7 reflection questions you can use to create more satisfying and conscious endings.I love knowing how these conversations are impacting you so keep those emails coming and if you're inspired, forward this podcast to a friend who you know is dealing with an ending right now...

    Let's keep finding our resonance and remembering that we are not alone.

    Part 1: How to Create a Conscious Ending

    Part 1: How to Create a Conscious Ending

    How we start and end things has always been fascinating to me, and having just gone through a major ending in my own life, I felt inspired to share some thoughts, practical steps and reflections on the concept of endings.
    In this week's episode I cover:
    The various types of endings, large and small, that we all experience both daily and throughout the human life cycle.How transitions can often kick up deeper psychological material, existential fears and loss, even if it is a somewhat positive change.The benefits of creating more conscious/intentional endings.The risks we are vulnerable to if we don't create more conscious/intentional endings.6 practical ways to reflect on, be with and process an ending.Simple ideas for creating a ritual to mark an ending or a completion.The interconnectivity of endings and beginnings, and the organic cycles of birth, growth, degeneration and death that happen over and over and over again in the human life cycle.This episode is more of a workshop style piece--meaning that it is intended as a resource to support you in actually doing some of the deeper reflection necessary to create a conscious ending for yourself.

    I highly recommend listening to this one when you can sit down with a pen and paper and when you aren't rushed!

    How to Get More of What You Want in Work & Life

    How to Get More of What You Want in Work & Life

    This past year has been a doozy to say the least.

    I'm talking to so many women whose lives shifted, got turned upside down and inside out and as the recalibration/reorganization process is now underway, one of the main areas that I see folks redefining is WORK.

    So let me ask you this: Are you happy with your work life?

    Sometimes?
    Never?
    All of the time?

    If you're being honest with yourself, what's the truth right now?

    Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum, if you're grappling or struggling with any aspect of your work life right now or trying to clarify the direction you're  headed next, this episode is for you!

    In this week's episode I cover:
    The subject of women & desire, why it can be so challenging to know what we want, pursue what we want and feel permission to get what we want.How some of the qualities and skills we've developed that have helped us attain a certain level of success, may actually be hindering our ability to create lives that are authentically fulfilling to us as adults.5 Thought provoking prompts to support a deeper investigation into your professional life, what's working, what's not working and what might need to change.A holistic view of what work is, what it is not, and why it is so important that we have conscious awareness around what is in alignment for us in relationship to our work.7 Thought provoking prompts to uncover and discover your unique values as they are right now in your life.Ideas about how to integrate more of your values into your everyday life and work.This episode is more of a workshop style piece--meaning that it is intended as a resource to support you in actually doing some of the deeper reflection necessary to get more of what you want in your work and life.

    I highly recommend listening to this one when you can sit down with a pen and paper and when you aren't rushed!

Inspiring generativity!

These are conversations that matter…that dive us into the wide range of our human hearts and experience…a place to get real with ourselves…our grief, our rage, our love and let it inspire us into generative, compassionate, conscious action.
Thank you Emma!!

NOURISHING

Really enjoyed one of the latest episodes with Sarah K. Peck! Thank you Emma for your beautiful insight, great questions, and to both you and Sarah for so powerfully speaking to my mothering and start-up heart. Perfect timing.

This podcast touches on so many important aspects of being a woman in today’s world. They’re relevant, thoughtful, thought provoking and always make me pause and reflect beyond the episode.
