Even if you’re struggling to share your gifts with the world. Learn what may be under that and how to do something about it
A course for female facilitators
Does the idea of putting yourself out there and telling the world what you offer make your stomach turn?
Maybe you can't bear the thought of the judgement you might get?
What if people question your competence or criticise you for being so bold?
You’re not alone.
So many of us, despite our strong callings, struggle. We worry about putting our message out there. And it’s no surprise really.
As a woman you’ve likely been carefully conditioned to “play small” and stay safe.
But the world needs more women who cast aside this conditioning.
We need to reclaim our power and bring our unique gifts to the people who need them.
Online journey to feel more confident in bringing your work to the people who need it
with Patricia Aguirre and Christina Dohr
Courage to Lead is an online, embodied journey for female facilitators and professional women to raise their confidence to the same level as their abilities. As a female facilitator, you may have found yourself questioning your right to stand up and own what you actually know you do well.
This course takes you to the heart of where that hesitancy comes from, and gives you the opportunity to look it in the eyes and question it. Once you’ve gone to the core of the fear, you’ll learn specific embodied tools to acknowledge it and find the strength to do the thing anyway.
After listening to pre-recorded webinars, you’ll have the opportunity in your peer groups to share what you find. You can also practise your new tools with this community of like-minded women.
You’ll take real-world steps in your accountability project to bring your gift to the people who need it and create the life of embodied professional growth you’ve imagined.
There will be four main parts to the course:
Pre-recorded webinars*, your real-life project, practice peer groups and personal practice.
Placing healthy expectations
Personal shadow work
Taking steps forward
Being where I want to be
Discover why the fear is not your fault, but also why it IS your responsibility to do something about it.
Empower yourself to step forward (in real-time) despite the fear to create the career in facilitation you’re called to.
While you’re frozen in fear the people who need you can’t find you. As you overcome what’s holding you back you’re helping them too.
"I have seen time and again how many women struggle to see the value in what they have to say, share, and teach – even when they’ve spent years studying, perfecting their crafts, and dedicating themselves to what they love to do.
Whenever you fall into this illusion of the “never enough” story, you lose valuable time where you don’t share what’s within you, what you’ve prepared yourself to practice. You also don’t reach the people who need your message, your work, your medicine.
I’ve also been part of this reality of our time where women over-prepare and over-practice in an attempt to cover up the always-unattainable promise of earning our place with the voice-holders and the power bearers.
This impacts all genders, but women have historically and culturally played a particular role in relationship to these dynamics.
Also, as women, our path out of this structure holds the potential to help reshape the way we live as a whole.
May we stand in dignity and respect for ourselves and our communities as we take our place, our voice and our power."

As your journey into facilitation may involve work with both boundaries and trauma, we have included two bonus pre-recorded courses with Patricia Aguirre:
Includes common symptoms of trauma, the weird ways it shows up, trauma coaching and why trauma education is needed now.
Includes exploration of internal & external boundaries, conditioning, handling discomfort and how to set boundaries in key areas of life. Split into four sections:
Gain the confidence for your launch
Want to make sure this course is the right fit for you? We do too.
We do visit topics around female trauma in this course, you will need to have some degree of functionality around this topic to be able to do the work.
This course is pre-recorded and available on our app and learning platform, but the peer groups will be live (you can organise a time that suits each of those in your group together – we don’t tell you when to meet).
No, the course will benefit all professional women wanting to put their gifts forward more courageously. But the content is geared towards female facilitators, so an interest in becoming a facilitator is useful.
If you complete the course over 2 months, it will be between 3 to 5 hours per week.
It will obvious be less per week if you complete it over a longer period of time. We won’t recommend doing it in less than 2 months though.
Each webinar is 75 minutes. There are actually two option available for each topic (see descriptions above), as Patricia and Christina each taught them with slightly different flavours!
