Root Down to Rise Up: A Workshop Series

UPDATE: THIS SERIES IS SOLD OUT!

Please keep checking back here for future workshops.

Join Sara Dubeau, DHHP, DMH and Dr. Jada Macleod for a 3-part workshop series that aims to get you unstuck and rising up. 
______

You’ve been sitting with this desire for a long time.

You keep thinking, “Soon...”
“I’ll get to it. Once I feel better. When I have more time. If I get that new job. Once I find a partner. When the kids are a bit older.”

Time passes. Seasons after season a new resistance emerges.
This holding pattern feeds a growing lack of belief, in yourself, and in the possibility for change. You feel frustrated, sad and lonely.
It causes sleepless nights, your heart to race, a heaviness in your stomach and tension in your chest.

It’s time.

For the shift- in circumstance, in perspective, in how you feel.
To unhook from that particular thread of hurt, belief or trauma that you carry, or inherited.
To go deep and slow into the inner work you are ready to do.
To commitment to yourself.
To create and receive.
It’s time to be the author of your story.

You know what you want.
You believe things can be better, and that by healing yourself you will connect more deeply with who you are.
You want to be guided and supported through a process that will create space for growth, provide tools for healing and soul nourishment, opportunity for self exploration, and action steps to keep you moving towards your dreams..
And you know that there is medicine that comes from gathering in community with people who are choosing to do their own work.

Is this workshop meant for you? 
Take a look at the details in the event below.

Have questions? 
Please feel free to connect with me.
