Some illuminative insights from my Teen Girls: Wisdom Within course

I’m now almost at the end of my first Teen Girls: Wisdom Within Course and it’s been fantastic. What I love about this course is the simple shared understanding that we are each complex inside and there's value in understanding how to interact with our inner life more effectively, instead of focusing on what’s “wrong” with us.

It’s been fascinating to explain some core basics around the inner life to the girls and show them how to listen, and see them instantly understand these concepts. They get it, because it’s already within them. They just had no language for it previously.

Empowering teen girls to discover the wisdom within

Empowering teen girls to discover the wisdom within

We live in a culture that idolises the head and ignores the heart. It's Mental Health Week, and with mental health issues at an alarming high in adults and children, it's time we shifted gears a little and placed more value on our heart and body intelligence. 

Of course for teens, developing intellect is essential, common sense crucial, but equally important is learning to listen to your heart in matters of the heart - relationships, connection to others, your people, life direction and pivotal choices. As is learning to trust your gut instincts and finding the courage to stay true to yourself in a culture that constantly seduces us to do the exact opposite.

Wisdom Within for Teen Girls

Wisdom Within for Teen Girls

Passion and inspiration have been overflowing this week as I work on creating a course for teen girls!

I've long loved supporting and encouraging women to listen to their bodies, navigate their feelings, trust themselves and learn wise tools for reflection, self-care and self-belief so they can show up authentically in their lives.

For the past couple of years, I've also been thinking about how useful it would be for teenagers to learn these skills too.

Holding yourself close to your own truth

Holding yourself close to your own truth

Recently I've been practising holding myself as close as possible to the fire of my own truth. Whenever I've been triggered by others, or in a challenging situation, rather than doing the usual judge, avoid or distract strategies, I've chosen to hold myself as close as possible to the fire of the truth of what's really going on beneath the surface.

My way is to write, to get the words out of my head and heart and onto paper.

What if you never get to use what you have?

What if you never get to use what you have?

Have you ever worried you won't ever get to use what you have in your life? That you won't ever find that beautiful fit between who you are and what you're doing in the outside world?

You may have followed the threads for many years and know you're generally in the right lane but still, perhaps you expected you'd have more to show for it by now, or be further along, more successful or fulfilled in what you are doing, whatever that means to you.

Inner work: is it worth it?

Inner work: is it worth it?

Do you do a lot of inner work to overcome self-doubt, heal old family patterns and wounds and  unhook from cultural conditioning? Are you committed to authenticity and growth, trying hard to shift negative beliefs and stories, strengthen your boundaries in relationships and embrace the lessons in the seemingly endless challenges that show up in your life?

Maybe you've been wondering if it's actually doing anything? Is it worth it?
