Transformational Development & Women's Leadership

The Rhythm Way is dedicated to unveiling the potential of all women everywhere and to emerging feminine leadership. 

This work responds to a deep human desire in each one of us to know our ecological purpose - a soul purpose that is larger and yet inclusive of our vocational roles and social identities. We are committed to welcoming home the whole human being, to celebrate diversity and the power of intimacy, and to take our one true place so that our gifts may come through in their fullness. We hold the fundamental truth that where and how we stand here, matters.

Through archetypal learning, direct and group mentorship, wilderness excursions, retreats and online workshops, The Rhythm Way offers opportunities to explore nature’s rhythms as they relate and mirror to us our own inner rhythms. And in doing so we'll explore the active evolution of our own edges - so that we can show up as leaders and guides - as a dream of the earth. Here we lean into the central conversation of our lives so that we can;

Learn, Live & Lead in Rhythm.

What You Will Experience:

Connection to the Earth Community | Here we re-member that we are who we are by nature of our relationships with everything else. We are not separate from nature, but a part of nature - capable of co-participating with not only our human communities but with the land we live on, the food we eat, the seasons and lunar cycles, the ebb and flow of the ocean tides... Nature is our primary guide and a powerful mirror on our personal and collective journeys. Women are remembering everywhere there is another way to live

Holistic Human Development | The time for compartmentalization is no longer. We live in a world that demands we acknowledge and celebrate the fullness of what it means to be human. Our practices, classes, and mentorships are anchored into multiple ways of knowing and guiding; including physical, emotional, and imaginal intelligence, and heart-centered thinking. We explore every sector of our life-experience, both personal, relational, collective, professional and the territory of spirit/soul. In doing so, we welcome home innate human capabilities that are needed here now.

Evocation of the Possible | We approach the psyche with reverence for its depth and mystery and believe in its capacity to develop innate resources that have the power to self-heal. We hold the belief that each being is utterly unique, and carries specific, never-seen-before gifts that if un-realized, will be lost to all of us forever. We believe in the emergent, and creative power of the soul that invites us into our future potential through our longings and our fears.

Reverence for the Dark | Our deepest wounds, our life-passage crises, our hidden fears and worst nightmares, our holy rage, grief, and undoing are fertile opportunities to grow downward - into our own depth. It is time we call home the fertile darkness that brings us into an open and vulnerable state - that renews our creativity, and reminds us of what we stand for and why. If we deny the dark, we deny ourselves initiatory passages and true, systemic transformation. From a place of wholeness, we revere the dark, and welcome the holy mess of what it means to be human.

Visionary Leadership Coaching | Opening ourselves to the intimacy of the world as a two-way, earth-centric, ecological conversation is visionary leadership. Though much of our programming focuses on personal development, the lens is global. The choices we make, the things we say - or don't say, the ways we pay attention - matter.

Guiding Questions for a Wild Way:

I offer these questions to stir the cauldron of your own lived experience. If they speak to you, journal them, walk with them, and let the questions themselves shape your growth.

  • How can my body be a resource for me in living an artistic and soulful life? One that is deeply connected, grounded, empowered, clear and imbued with meaning? How does my body relate and communicate with all living things?
  • How may my unique gifts best serve the human and other-than-human community in these turbulent and changing times? What are my unique gifts?
  • In what ways can I draw strength from sources inside of me that need no outer permission to dance, and to sing, and to support my unfolding?
  • How have I unknowingly taken on a shape that is not mine at all? That was perhaps imposed on me from the outside, in the form of shoulds and shouldnts? How can I excavate and uncover my natural and harmonious self? Why is that important? Not only for me, but for the world?
  • In what ways does the natural world speak to us and teach us to be in rhythm with the organic, creative cycles of all things? How does resting into that knowing give me permission to stand in my place and process?
  • How can I help to create meaningful ritual and self-designed ceremonies that help to mark initiatory rites of passage for myself and my loved ones? Why is this important?
  • How do myth, poetry, imagery, dream, and imagination become primary resources for me on my journey through life? What other tools and maps do I have to work with?
  • How can I work with fear as a catalyst for emergence? And in what ways can my fear become a strength if I turn to face it?
  • What deep longings to I have within me at this point in my life? What fears? How can these two currents usher me into a conversation with my soul? What is my soul? How can I live from that place, and why would I want to?
  • What about feelings of dis-ease, confusion, agitation, and grief? How can I lean into even the dark as a mysterious beckoning, an authentic failure, or a fertile crisis?
  • What is the "emerging feminine"?
