We’ve all got a little warrior in us somewhere! For me, my “training” as a wee-warrior began as the youngest of five girls. With my fearless sisters and single mom (with six sisters of her own!) leading the way for me, I have always had a long line of beautiful, powerful, dynamic women in front of me, each one shining out her warrior spirit in her own unique way. The lessons I learned and gifts I received from my family in these early childhood days have stayed with me a lifetime and have greatly influenced me in my decision to help other women find and connect with their inner warrior too.
The form of my offering has taken many shapes over the years. But whether I was playing the role of yoga teacher, strategic consultant, life coach, writer, public speaker, or wellness counselor, my intention has always remained the same: create a space for people to connect to their own inherent wisdom, and magic will happen. Nowhere have I noticed this more than when a woman awakens her warrior inside! Her empowerment inevitably has positive ripple effects into her family and community since women are so often the “glue” that holds relationships together.
I’ve worked with women from all walks of life, and traveled the world in hopes of learning as much as I can from my fellow “sisters” around the globe. Though on the most surface level our stories seem very different, in our hearts, warrior women the world over experience so many of the same things – the same challenges, internal obstacles, initiations, and dreams. It’s my hope that we can make these similarities between us more transparent and start participating in a more deliberate conversation about the challenges and opportunities we face as warrior women today. I have no doubt that as we start to celebrate our similarities and share our insights, a potent elixir for healing ourselves and the world will unfold. I so hope you’ll join me in this co-creation of spirit. The time to unite our tribe has come!
