The Art of Radical Self-Care is an 8 week program that shows you, step by step, how to develop strategies to focus on what matters most in your life. We help you clarify your personal and professional goals, so you can achieve sustainable long lasting transformation from the inside out.

What do you need to release in your life — that no longer supports self-care, self-value and self-worth?

What needs to change for you to have inner-peace, freedom and balance?

I’m sure you see them. People who aren’t struggling with the things you’re still trying to figure out. They’re a healthy weight, have loving relationships and are soaring in their careers… 

You can’t help but wonder, “why not me” – I’m a good person – what’s their secret?

What are they doing that YOU could also do to get you closer to your dreams?

Those people are not better than you – prosperity, success, optimal health and joy is not for only a select few.

The people you see who are healthy in mind, body and spirit are the ones who’ve figured out the secret for staying healthy, happy and whole. You too can experience this success in your own life and you deserve it!

Over the course of 8 weeks, we will be utilizing the Duke Integrative Model of achieving optimal health. We will move beyond just talking about change and begin to develop specific strategies to achieve optimal health in the following areas of your life:

  • Mindful Awareness/Mind Body Connection
  • Movement Exercise and Rest
  • Personal and Professional Development
  • Physical Environment
  • Spirituality
  • Relationship and Communication

The Art of Radical Self-Care is a dynamic, powerful and impactful program that will meet you where you are and get you to where you want to go. Whatever the goal – It can be yours – If you’re willing to follow the steps to make it happen.

This program is for you If...

  • You feel stuck. You’re working in a job that feeds your bank account but starve your soul. You’re relationships are stagnant and mask love with the fear of starting over. You’re tired of carrying around the weight of the world on your physical body.
  • You’ve tried everything you know to make things work. You’re running yourself ragged trying to fix everything and everyone around you but all that effort only leaves you broken.
  • Pressure, stress, anxiety and fear are your constant companion. You’re carrying a scarcity mentality that tells you that there isn’t enough time, money, energy, freedom or joy.

And you’re ready to stop feeling…

  • Overwhelmed — you’ve tried everything but nothing seems to be changing in your health, your finances, your career and your relationships.
  • Scared — you’re afraid of running out of time but don’t know what actions to take to move the needle forward.
  • Unsupported — as if only the people around you changed then everything would be alright.

It’s time to commit to doing something about it.

In this program you will learn how to...

  • Use mindfulness and present moment awareness to help you maintain a feeling of calm and peace throughout your day.
  • Prioritize your life based upon what matters most to you.
  • Find your voice and the courage to set boundaries and cultivate resolve even in the midst of daily challenges.
  • Dream Again. Reconnect to the things that kept you inspired and energized before the noise of the world silenced you.
  • Move with the Flow of Life by practicing healthy eating, yoga and aerobic exercise to keep the body and mind working at its optimal capacity.
  • Go For It! Set goals and develop strategies and partnerships that will help you make your dreams a reality.

The shift in perspective…

The opening up of possibilities…

The realization of your own innate power to change your circumstances…

...is what you will gain after completing this 8 week program. You will receive the gift of rediscovering your passion and your purpose. This clarity and focus will help you establish a new vision for your life that will make you come alive!
