Daring to be Ourselves

Hello goddesses,

Our words for today are ‘Daring’ and ‘Courage’ because it takes courage and daring to be OURSELVES.  It’s so much easier and safer to play-act being someone else.  To be truly who we are, though, is to risk ridicule.  Words meant to hurt, dishonor, shame.

Why am I afraid to tell you who I am?  Because … you may not like who I am, and that’s all I have.  – John Powell, S.J.

If our mask is being made fun of, we can laugh along with the joker; it’s only a costume, after all.  When there is no mask, we are vulnerable to feel our deeper spirit’s wounding…our real spirit of self-worth, acceptance…and believe that our real SELF is not good enough, that we are not good, or enough. … When we ARE very much, both good, and enough.

Self-discovery is a Sacred Path.

It takes COURAGE and DARING to confidently travel our personal path and discover–and recover– our own style, beauty, gifts, grace, and greatness.  …  to live without the mask and costume of someone else.

Our Fall Book Study Series is a powerful one and begins next week Tuesday and Thursday.  Our guiding resource book, P***y: a Reclamation, may take Courage and Daring for some to read also.  Is it worth it?  I think it is; you decide, though.

Join me if you’re feeling a little Daring and Courageous… and maybe Curious.

If you’re like me, you have more than one book going at a time.  Alongside this one, for instance, I’ve got Renee Starr’s You Are Woman, You Are Divine. I love how one sheds light on another.  Here are three more interesting complementary-reading possibilities you might like also:

Daring to Be Yourself by Alexandra Stoddard

A Woman’s Worth by Marianne Williamson

The Dance of the Dissident Daughter by Sue Monk Kidd

Get IN on this Awesomeness TODAY!  Be a little daring.  This is going to be so good and fun.  Details are on this Calendar or here.  Welcome.

A lot of this is deep and personal stuff… religion, spirituality, self-esteem, and full ownership and awareness of one’s life, body, and soul. And loving our self and  being our true self.  It all takes a certain amount of Daring and Courage…that we will help each other with.

For some, perhaps a group is not a comfortable venue–or group times don’t fit right now.  That’s why I also provide individual private-study Personal Packages.  If that feels better, a free 30-minute, no-obligation discovery session gets us started.

These are Expansive Times — of expanding our understanding of all that it means to LIVE–bodily and spiritually–in this Lifetime EXACTLY as who we are…and that our path definitely includes Pleasure by design.

Still have questions, contact me.

Looking forward to these delightfully daring gatherings. – Anne

 

Fall Book Study

Hello Goddesses,

We’re going boldly where many fear to go this fall.  Our selected book is the author’s lifetime achievement, has only been out since September 20, and has already hit the NYT Best Seller List!

nyt-best-seller

I’m excited and happy for her; and having already downloaded my Kindle edition, I’m enjoying the read.  As EDG community members, this is one of your membership inclusions, i.e. You get in FREE.

Tomorrow will be an open / Free info – Intro session.  (Both here at KSC in the afternoon and by phone in the evening.)    You are welcome to invite other goddesses to be part of this.   Our series will run for 9 weeks.  Call-in number is same as last time, or email me if you need it.

So looking forward to connecting and conversing again.  And what a topic, hey!  Please share as you’re inspired.

Also, if you don’t have the book yet, or even if you do, here’s the author’s site for a better idea of who she is and her work…and bonuses she’s still got on the table for us…

Love it!  Tomorrow, Ladies.  Good stuff.  – Anne

Summer Beach Group 2016

IMAGINE MONDAY MORNINGS for reading, writing, and meaningful conversing with women like yourself who are changing and growing, in all kinds of ways …

SUMMER is a perfect time … and the setting is heavenly!

The inspiration came over coffee one morning at a favorite beach-side coffee shop…four years ago…  And every year since, women have gathered by the water; and deeper words and wisdom have been shared.  It’s a beautiful thing.

2016 will be our 5th Annual Summer Beach Group Series.  This summer, we’ll be revisiting Big Magic, by Elizabeth Gilbert.  Specifics can be found here.

If this beckons, join me this summer, at the beach (or by phone) Mondays for some Big Magic personal conversing and connecting.  Here’s a print-and-share card to invite a friend.

It’s a good time to check your calendar and save the dates.  – Anne

Flow and synchronicity

This week Tuesday night’s goddess call subject is Synchronicity from The Power of Flow…Chapter 2 in the book if you’re following along.

There are many powerful, spirit-freeing, thought-stretching reads.   Bring what you’re reading that speaks of synchronicity and flow.  I found this, for example, in email this morning:

When you allow a full alignment with the Source within you, unpleasant things that may be happening around you will not matter.  Instead of being influenced by the unwanted things that are happening, you will be influenced by your alignment with Source and with Well-being.  —Abraham

There’s a universal energy and synergy that naturally connects things and brings pieces together.  I see it all the time…and I’m in awe, and I love what it happens.  Maybe it’s the lens I look through.  I see connectings and layers of meaning.  And I appreciate their timing.  It reminds me I’m not in this alone; none of us are.

Have a beautiful day.  Enjoy what you’re reading and let it uplift and inspire you!

Much love and grace.  – Anne
