ARE YOU BUSY OR PRODUCTIVE?
Is your process for getting things done integrated with proper self care needs, healthy boundaries, continually evolving self awareness, and a deep understanding of your available energy and time?
Being busy is not an indicator of true productivity, a successful career, a healthy sense of direction, or a balanced life. It’s often a reason to take a look at where you might be doing the work of others, how your time is used, whether you remember to seek out help, and whether you’re truly invested in all of the things that take your energy and time.
Learn how to work toward sustainable, healthy goals while taking care of yourself, and do it with the accountability and support of others on the same journey.
Any of these questions sound like something with which you’ve grapple recently?
How do I tackle a professional project at a pace that leaves room for personal passions and family time?
How do I take care of another person, household, business, or high stress situation while remembering to maintain forward movement in my own life?
How do I embrace parenthood while loving my career and recognizing the superhero cape I’m already wearing?
How do I continue to manifest my intentions in June of 2018 with same energy and sustained focus I had in January?
How do I learn boundaries that protect my time, energy, and focus from others around me?
How much energy goes toward the parts of my life that really deserve that energy, and what could I toss in a dumpster?
Who am I with less on my plate and hands no longer holding someone else’s plate?
How do I recognize, embrace, and give priority to what I’m truly invested in doing and find peace with what I’m ultimately motivated to complete?
Soulful Focus is an ongoing group that I‘ve wanted to create for a while. I am a lover of intentional planning, clear and compassionate boundaries, all types of creativity, empowerment, connection, and self care. Everywhere that I place passionate energy is about some portion of these things, both personally and professionally, so putting all of the elements into an ongoing shared space is, for me, the ultimate group witnessing.
Soulful Focus groups are for bringing driven and successful adults together to talk about how we get things done while honoring all of the parts of ourselves with as much sustainable balance as possible. Our differences can used to walk our path while developing empathy for those walking paths that intersect with and differ from ours, while recognizing where we are all struggling with many of the same themes in our lives.
Here’s what you’ll receive:
– Orientation gathering early in your first quarter (learn about materials, format, meet other members of your group)
– 1:1 personal mentoring session with me once per quarter
– Twice monthly witnessing groups, in person at my office
– Self care and planning resources from me monthly
– Homework assignments and check-ins tailored to the goals you decide to focus on for the year and the materials chosen for the year
– Occasional outings to shop for plannings supplies, and open office hours where everyone can dig into their workbooks or other tasks together in the Sky Witness gathering space
READY TO TAKE THE PLUNGE?
When will I have my 1:1 personal mentoring session?
I will offer several slots throughout the quarter, which will be first come, first serve. You will have the option of meeting with me at the beginning, mid-point, or end of each quarter, depending on what works best for you and when you feel the need for that time.
Can I pay monthly?
No. There are a few reasons for this, but they basically all come down to accountability and sustainability. I need to have my time commitment supported financially, and this is also intended to be a long haul endeavor. Making the up-front commitment is part of the accountability of this process.
Will my insurance cover this?
This is not an intensive treatment group, so it will not be billable to insurance. The work you do in this group will be driven by peer support, personal and group accountability, and a ongoing psychoeducation, affirmation, supportive processing, and guidance from me.
Can I participate if I am already a psychotherapy or shamanic client? Can I become a psychotherapy or shamanic client in addition to my participation in this group?
Yes! It’s certainly compatible with the clinical and spiritual work that I do. Keep in mind the point addressed above. While you may be seeing me through your insurance provider for therapy, this program will not be covered.
Similarly, if doing this work prompts you to seek additional support in the form of psychotherapy, we can discuss engaging in that work outside of group as long as you and I don’t have a personal relationship. I’m also happy to discuss formal shamanic work outside of group.
Can I choose to leave the group after the first quarter if I’m unable to continue for the entire year?
If you’re paying quarterly, then absolutely. Each quarterly payment is a commitment for that quarter and you can choose to discontinue your participation at the end of each quarter if you cannot continue. Those who pay for 6 months will have until the end of the first quarter to request a 30% refund if leaving the group. Those who pay for the year in full will have until the end of May to request a 30% refund if leaving the group.
If I leave the group, can I return when I’m able to participate again?
Seats in the group won’t be saved and space is limited, so you will have the option of joining a wait list or joining again in the next calendar year. There are no penalties, public shamings, or judgments if you have a span of time where your goals need to be placed on hold, so consider sticking with us for ongoing support even when you’re not busting out task after task. That’s part of what this group is for!
