Courage means speak with heart!

Join us on February 25, 2019

Recently Brene Brown posted this:

The root of the word courage is cor – the Latin word for heart. In one of its earliest forms, the word courage had a very different definition than it does today. Courage originally meant “To speak one’s mind by telling all one’s heart.”

Over time, this definition has changed, and today, courage is more synonymous with being heroic. Heroics is important and we certainly need heroes, but I think we’ve lost touch with the idea that speaking honestly and openly about who we are, about what we’re feeling, and about our experiences (good and bad) is the definition of courage.

Heroics is often about putting our life on the line. Ordinary courage is about putting our vulnerability on the line. In today’s world that’s pretty extraordinary.

 This is exactly how I feel about what we come together to do in these living room sessions: To speak from our hearts is to be courageous.  There is no doubt about that!

 

Next month marks a year that these sessions began. It has been a wonderful year of self-discovery & connection! I’ve seen a lot of women being courgeous by opening up their hearts and sharing among, often, strangers. When one of us opens up and speak from her heart it gives us all permission to do so. It helps bring hearts together.

If you have been thinking, Hmmm could this be something for me?

Then please let me encourage you to join us.

We would love to have you! ♥

These monthly sessions are hosted in the comfort of my home (otherwise known as, the living room). Together, we create a safe place for us to feel comfortable & able to talk about what resides deep in our hearts. All topics are open. There will be no photos of attendees, no live streams, no videos, or anything of the sort.  We hold a pact that all things shared in the room are not for the public.  Keeping it confidential, keeps us safe and allows us to open our hearts.

As always it is open for 8 women. Tea, Coffee, and snacks are provided.  We welcome any baked goods and snacks if you would like to share some. 🙂

In order to secure one of these 8 spots, please “purchase” a ticket at the link provided. It is a free event. However, some details will not be published on Facebook or here on the website. Therefore by purchasing a ticket and providing an email, you will receive more details about the event AND your spot will be reserved for this month.

Netwerkcafé Amsterdam: Could it be time for you to follow your heart? workshop

Could it be your time to follow your heart?

I’m hosting another workshop in Amsterdam on February 18 for Netwerkcafé Amsterdam: Werken voor Elkaar.  

In this workshop, the focus is getting into your heart instead of your head.

Some key points on this topic are:

  • Why getting back into your heart is important in career& life.
  • How to know you are not in it and how to get into it more?

The benefits of following and leading from the heart are:

  • Clarity – always knowing what direction to take and what works best for you.
  • Ease & Flow – to your life and work. No more hustle or extra effort.
  • Confidence – you can always count on yourself. No more second-guessing!
  • FUN – creating life and choosing a career on your own terms is wonderful and let’s face it, FUN

 

More Details about the event and to RSVP here.

Guided Episode #10 – How I flourished when I stopped trying to fit in.

 

“Your first impression is your ONLY impression.” Petra Fisher, talking on your presence on LinkedIn.

 

Petra and I met a few years ago when I attended a great workshop of hers on LinkedIn.  At the event I really got a feel of who Petra is, and she does not disappoint. Fun, sarcastic and just straight-forward about the things that matter the most: YOU and bringing out who you REALLY are in your LinkedIn profile. You could say we have this, being true to yourself, in common.

During the interview she even makes me more aware of how I’m not showing up in my profile! YUP the interviewer becomes the interviewee.  I left it ALL of that in, including our funny false start. You see, it wouldn’t make sense to edit out what makes this truly authentic with a woman who embodies that to the very core of her essence. So, in honor of that I kept it REAL & true to us both. Enjoy.

In this interview you will find out,

  • Petra’s journey in becoming a business owner while holding down a job.
  • How work environment doesn’t align with her personality
  • What she discovered by wearing jeans instead of a suit
  • The one time she took a job but it wasn’t quite her thing.
  • Using her strategy of following her heart (in her words, gut) in chosing how she wants to work (or IF she wants to that day), who she wants to work with, etc…
  • That being herself instead of playing a role made her work feel like magic.

A New way of working together

I’ve recently created a new coaching approach that is easy, affordable, and available to everyone to start NOW.

I decided that 2019 is the year I want to coach more people. And because that is my mission, I wanted to make it easy for anyone who is ready for coaching to be able to have access to coaching AND find the right approach for them.

These coaching sessions are named Jump into your heart, are intended to help anyone (yes it is open to both men and women) to get started in coaching as soon as today. I love what I do so why not make it easier.  This is the newest offer out of the 3 ways we can work together. The other 2 options are the online program: Full Heart Meditation program & my signature coaching program: Follow your heartIf you take a look that one got a bit of revamp on pricing as well! 

When you love what you do, the numbers aren’t what matter, it is about the people who have big dreams ready to be realized. I want to be the coach for them/you! 

If you are ready, I would love for you to be my next client!

Heart is where home is: Allison Hamilton-Rohe Episode #9

Allison and I met here in the Netherlands in 2014-ish.  Instant friendship from the first minute! You know how when you have a friend you really admire…that is Allison for me. She runs her business from her heart and soul. AND she brought that to this episode of Guided too! 

In our 40-minute plus interview she shares her journey,

  • Of becoming a parent to an Autistic child
  • Losing her mother suddenly
  • Living in a foreign country during all these transitions.
  • Of rebooting her business several times throughout this journey and how she felt about that.
  • Of hearing the heart calling her home in time to be with her father before his passing.

Allison is a natural planner and in this interview she makes a few admissions about how she was required to listen to her heart and not always fall back on a plan. That it isn’t something you can plan for that trusting it is often the hardest part. And she says,

“It gave me strength and courage to listen to that voice and double down on it.”

This interview has something for everyone. Grab your headphones, a good cup of whatever you love, and listen how Allison found that Heart is where her home is.
