Finding comfort in our bodies and food choices
When we let go of prescriptive ideals about how we should eat and look (and we are left without any rules) it can feel extremely uncomfortable. How can we move through the discomfort to a place of authentic comfort and belonging?

Showing up for ourselves
We are taught from a young age to care for others. It can feel like it's hard-wired into our genetics. So how do we show up for ourselves, while our hearts are being pulled in so many directions? How do we finally land at a place of "I matter." Join me in shifting what can feel like the impossible, to the possible. 

11:15- 11:45 am BREAK
Delicious treats and refreshments, shop and mingle.

11:45-12:40 pm SPEAKER SESSION TWO

Empathy and Mindfulness
Being mindful fosters compassion and kindness. But what does that mean? What impact can teaching the power of empathy have on our children and ultimately our ability to give love to both ourselves and others around us?

Balancing work, babies and a business
Is balance really an achievable destination? How can you take your mom-guilt and tell it to go away? In the appearance of "doing it all," I am living my best life - one day at a time. And, how do you do it all? The answer is you don't. 

The Myth of Competition
What has been missing from the competition conversation, amongst all the "women are raised to be competitive," "comparison is the thief of joy," "collaboration over competition" is where the need to belong comes from, and how we can use that natural tendency to our own advantage. Listeners will walk away from this session with a renewed sense of confidence in their own abilities, and a fresh perspective on what it truly means to gauge your own success in a way that feels good for you, specifically. 

12:40-1:00pm Thank you and closing notes
and maybe more surprises! you'll have to see! xo
