You are brilliant.

Look at you doing the damn thing!

Even if there’s resistance in reading that (cause me too!), stay with me for a sec...


 you’ve got an idea   or idea(s) 


 you need support   when it comes to   action. 

 you’ve got plans 

 all your goodness is up in the ether (in  that beautiful brain of yours) and needs  some tethering. 

 it feels better energetically to be in a   space with like- minded goal-getters   and intention-setters bringing 

 [insert plan here] to fruition. 

 I got you. 

Just because you can do it alone...

doesn't mean you have to.

held is a space where witnessing and connection give our ideas wings


we map out our intentions and our action steps.


simply making a thing a thing.

I like to think of it as an energetic anchoring.
