Selfistry Embodied: Radical Self Care for Life 2024
It's time to move forward with your life. The world is ready for you.
January 15, 2024 - December 30, 2024
Everyone can change. You, too, can become the most authentic version of yourself. Aligned with your values. Free of shoulds. Clear on your sincerest aspirations. Learned in the skills necessary to bring forth your gifts into the world.
Content. Connected. Confident. On purpose.
For each of us, there are unique life circumstances and personal history that both feed our resistance to change and fuel our capacities to successfully grow.
It’s not just you who struggles to break old patterns, release incessant habits, and ripen into somebody you know is gestating inside.
Make no mistake, it’s super hard to overcome our dogged resistance and find the magic elixir that will unleash our inherent potential.
And oh my, do we try hard.
So. Many. Books.
Better food … better sleep … better sex …
It’s all supposed to help, right? Help us get clear. Help us get “there.” But has it? Or are you, like so many others, left feeling like every next step you take is just one more thing to do and then, when it doesn’t pan out, you take another and then another, leaving you feeling like you’re oh so close. But oh so far.
You wonder if you should push through and employ a more committed self discipline or just go ahead and try the next thing … because eventually you should hit the mark, right?
The answer is definitely not to do more.
And the answer is definitely not to push through.
The answer is to stop.
The next step is to reflect on what you’re actually asking of yourself – if it’s even reasonable or desirable.
Before we can actualize our natural impulse to grow, we must explore, “What am I actually moving towards, what is the nature of the growth that I’m seeking, and is what I’m doing moving me in that direction?”
It’s likely that you’re squandering your life force, searching for something unattainable without considering the context of what is actually possible.
It wasn’t always this way.
Western culture has led us wildly astray. Left us confused and disoriented — chasing after a dream that was fed to us at birth. A dream that’s not realizable — nor even desirable upon investigation.
Once we slow down and take a look at how we’ve lost our way, then the real path opens up before us. It was always there. Just buried.
By stepping out of the path with no desirable end and stepping onto the reliable and attainable one, you’ll be able to pick up unique and sustainable tools that will illuminate what self growth actually looks like for you. From here you will be able to discern clearly when to push through resistance, when to yield, and when to change course.
I invite you to stop your present self growth frenzy.
Give yourself time to reorient this entire personal growth endeavor.
Yes. I know now may be a hard time to think about prioritizing yourself. But consider for just a moment that there may never be a better time. Your plate may get more full, not less. Stressors may get more acute. If you’re reading this, you’re likely already feeling that your energetic capacity has become strained — taut — unsustainable.
If not now, when?
Taking time to learn a useful framework that will carry you, not just through one season of hardship, but for the rest of your life, is the best form of self care you can give yourself.
Once you clarify your goal, take stock of what you’re presently spending your precious time and energy on, and get radically honest about what will and won’t work for you, you’ll be able to choreograph the lifestyle that deeply nourishes you forever.
Selfistry can help.
Now is the moment when you can stop trying to live up to your potential and start moving steadily toward it.
I’m Sarah, and I’m your guide. I invite you to join me in this very special signature program.
What I’ve learned from decades in the field of human development as both a serious practitioner and a highly trained educator is that certain essential elements are key to enacting our innate capacity to learn and grow, and are therefore embedded in the structure of this program.
Learning must be relevant to the learner and their natural curiosity
Learning must be delivered in a style that matches the style of the learner.
Learning happens best in an environment with other dedicated learners.
Learning is enhanced and expedited by having guides and teachers who have a comprehensive understanding of the learning process, have knowledge of the content being learned, and have a wide-ranging capacity in facilitating the learning process across a diversity of populations.
The human development that is being called forth from our species at this time in history asks that both learners and guides find their way to being in right relationship with one another and the planet, where we recognize that we are all eternally both students and teachers in varied contexts.
In this foundational program, I will take you through the steps necessary to accomplish creating a life that is dynamically responsive to the complex and unique human that you are becoming if …
You’re excited about getting radically honest with yourself about yourself and your desires.
You’re tired of trying tools or teachers that don’t deliver what you need.
What you are seeking is more of a self-growth tune-up rather than an overhaul — meaning, you already have some time spent in the arenas of self-help and personal or spiritual growth, and are longing to take stock of what you have achieved in order to clarify your way forward.
You recognize that the times we live in always inform the choices we have regarding the direction of our lives — and if we do not consider the context of the current global situation as integral to our personal choices, then we are not only doing a great disservice to humanity, but will likely be unsuccessful in bringing about our ideal life.
The cohort size will be small and intimate, between 12 and 24.
Each member will receive six private one-on-one hour-long sessions with me.
This is a year long program. We will meet within the structure of modules each one lasting 4 – 6 weeks, with 2 – 5 weeks break in between modules.
During each module the entire group will meet for one hour once every week for teaching and practice. We will also meet at TBD days and time for office hours, additional learning, discussion groups etc. Days and times will be based upon the group’s needs and preferences.
Various experts in different fields will be brought in as guest speakers during our breaks between sessions, as well as other surprise events.
The cohort will have a private and secure online space where all learning materials will be located and where the cohort members can convene and engage with one another.
Cohort members will have the option to join a pod for ongoing support and learning, and/or to host discussion sessions.
Regional in-person retreats to be organized by the group.
Optional onsite spring retreat in Mexico — see bonuses below.
Optional in-person retreats in summer and autumn of 2024.
We will be using Selfistry: A Guide to Embodying Timeless Spiritual Wisdom as the core textbook for this six-month program. Once you have secured your place you will receive a personalized signed copy of it in the mail along with a special gift from me. A + $50 value.
You will receive a VIP coupon to attend Selfistry’s Nourish Your Self in Paradise retreat in Mexico in Spring 2023. A $1000 value — redeemable in 2024 or 2025
