S6 Ep 3: Permission is


In this episode, you’ll get to be a fly on the wall for a coaching session with a volunteer client, Kate. Our session digs into the topic of self-love, what’s enough vs. extra, how to slow down your mind and body, and what permission to rest looks like.

🌱 In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • A beautiful poem by Benedictine monk, author, and lecturer Brother David Steindl-Rast
  • Kate’s realization about enough vs. extra
  • The confidence that Kate has built by focusing less on external validation and more on her internal experience
  • How years and years of being a “Doer” has made it hard for Kate to relax
  • How to slow down and access calm within your body
  • “Perfect” relaxation vs. good enough relaxation
  • About identifying the ingredients of what you want and how to dial that up and down depending on what situation you’re in
  • What Kate’s cats remind her of when it comes to receiving and rest
  • An exercise that helps Kate get back into her body and relax
  • What Kate agreed to try in the next week after coaching
  • More about my permission-filled last weekend and what I realized from it
  • What “Permission Palooza” is and how you can join us in a fun experiment that helps you and a community of women grant yourselves permission to honor your needs and wants.
