the in.side pillars

sacred expression

Practices: Authenticity / Vulnerability / Intimacy

Sacred expression is how we show up in this world, how we share our unique voice, communicate with ourselves and others, and create intentional impact. 

It is how we consciously choose to turn our inside world out, and share our innermost sense of  self. It is how we connect with our intuition and allow flow to enter all levels of our being, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and intellectually. 

By consciously choosing our thoughts, words and actions, we have the power to create our reality.

 

We are all born creators. 

self leadership

Practices: Integrity / Bravery / Responsibility 

 

Self leadership is the ability to know thyself so you can lead thyself. 

 

A self leader has a deep desire to grow, and makes moves towards increased self awareness and self confidence to take inspired action. 

A self leader has the capacity to recognize emotions, desires, challenges and energy levels, and manages them while practicing discipline, finding inner motivation, and claiming personal responsibility. 

A self leader is always learning, taking initiative and leading by example.

We are all born leaders. 

feminine impact

Practices: Trust / Wisdom / Connection

 


 

Our feminine powers are soft, fluid, dynamic. Our essence exists with our natural ability to connect to intuition, find stillness, birth new creations, and be our own energy source. We know there is a power in our presence alone. We know it is stronger together. 

Feminine impact is the effect that women’s presence, energy and actions have on the wellbeing of the community. 

By learning how to leverage our feminine strengths and become effectively eloquent leaders, we become not the fire, but the fuel which ignites ripples of impact, resulting in a paradigm of positive shift for the greater good.

We invite, honor and acknowledge the power of feminine energy to elevate, enhance and enlighten our world.

We are all born lights.
