Sarah will also be facilitating a discussion with the group to dive the messages in her book, that can provide support for those struggling in any kind of lonely situation.

Entrepreneur's Circle: Stand Out on Linkedin + Your Resume with Bronia Hill

Promote yourself 2.jpg

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not going at the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. This month, we welcome career progression strategist Bronia Hill to lead our monthly circle.

This workshop is for those looking to put their best foot forward (especially on LinkedIn) and wanting to own their narrative for a potential career move or to get more referrals.

Developing narratives that serve as the best foundation for a career move is Bronia Hill’s specialty. In other words she’s really good at helping people market themselves.

In 2009 Bronia founded Promote Yourself - a career and resume consultancy (see bio below) - on the basis that life’s too short to spend it on something you’re not passionate about. She wants to see everyone in a career that energizes, challenges, and enables growth. She's on a mission to transform resumes and Linkedin profiles from boring to brilliant.

With more than 500 million global users on Linkedin and 95% of recruiters using the platform to source candidates, you’re going to need something that stands out. Recruiters and hiring managers will likely see this before they look at your resume so take this opportunity to tell your story in an intelligent and engaging way that connects with your target audience and sets you apart from others. 

In this session, Bronia will discuss how your resume and LinkedIn profile set the tone for your career and why it’s so important to get them right. She’ll share her experience along with some effective tactics to ensure you’re positioning yourself in the best way possible.

Key takeaways include:

  • Psychology of first impressions

  • Components of a rocking good resume

  • Creating an engaging Linked in profile that’s on-brand and speaks to your target audience

  • Owning your narrative and telling your story with confidence

  • 10 things you can do immediately to improve your resume and Linkedin profile

The perfect prep for a successful 2019!

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

The Hivery's What's Next: A Four-Week Workshop Series

Whats_Next_Jan_program_The_Hivery.jpg

Explore positive change in your life! Whether you want to go back to work, back to school, start a business, or volunteer in a personally meaningful way, The Hivery’s What's Next workshop will help you to identify possibilities that match who you are, what you are naturally good at, and what excites you.

This four-week workshop series is especially beneficial for women who crave being part of a supportive group of like-minded women that encourage ideas, next steps and action.

Individually and as a group, you will:

  • Learn how to recognize patterns that hold you back and identify threads that point to your purposeful work

  • Create new habits that support change

  • Get unstuck and motivated to get moving again

  • Deepen your understanding of who you are and what makes you tick

Course coaches, Laura Riordan, Ph.D. and Linda Lesem, M.S., use their extensive experience in coaching, psychology, and career counseling to guide participants.  All What’s Next participants will receive a What’s Next Toolkit chock-full of practical actions to support healthy change. 

WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM WHAT’S NEXT PARTICIPANTS?

You don’t need to know what you want...it’s perfectly okay if you don’t. Our only expectation is that you show up fully and that you are ready and willing to explore positive change in your life!


//PROGRAM TAKEAWAYS

GET UNSTUCK

First, you will need to understand why you are stuck. We will explain the myriad of environmental blocks, cultural themes and brain biases that keep you from moving forward. You will find out how to change your mindset, let go of expectations and clear away roadblocks.

OWN YOUR STRENGTHS + VALUES 

We begin with introductions, intentions and a variety of self-assessment explorations including the Myers Briggs (a Personality Typology Inventory).  Additionally, we will explore Interests through the Holland Code, Character Strengths, Skills, Values and a variety of creative exercises that will help you to brainstorm possibilities that are complementary to your true nature.

DESIGN A PLAN FOR CHANGE

We work together to intentionally create space for What’s Next by identifying what works and what no longer serves you.  You will life-design both your physical environment and relationships, to support your new chapter. This is a key component to organizing your life to get “unstuck” and make actual change.  We will guide you towards identifying the intersection of your core values, interests, strengths and skills.  This is the intersection where “good fit” possibilities reside.   

CREATE AN ACTION PLAN

We create actions and accountability around "trying things on."  Your Hivery What’s Next group will be there to help you investigate, network and find out if new action paths are a match with who you are and what you want to do. Finally, we give you practical tools and a variety of Positive Psychology techniques to create your own custom recipe for change.
 

SESSION SCHEDULE + PRICING

What’s Next Facilitators: Linda Lesem, M.S., and Laura Riordan, Ph.D. 

Linda Lesem, M.S. is a trained therapist, career counselor and life coach, specializing in Positive Psychology, (the Science of Happiness). She works individually with clients in her own practice, and also facilitates groups for clients, who are yearning to create positive change in their lives! Linda created Moms In Transition, a workshop for Moms who are ready to take their next step, and are asking themselves…"What is next for me?"  This is a great way for a small group of women to be together, as they "get back in touch with who they are", and "what they want" and then start the process of creating a plan for themselves, whether that be re-entering the paid working world, going back to school or volunteering in personally meaningful ways. Learn more about Linda here
 

Laura Riordan, Ph.D. is a holistic life coach who helps her clients find balance and meaningful success. With a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and 20 years in the mind and body wellness industry, she brings wisdom, clarity and swiftness to her coaching practice. Laura began her career as the head of client services for retreat style resorts and spas, helping people center and refocus themselves while escaping the daily challenges of modern life. While overseeing spa programs and working as a massage therapist, she discovered that retreats were great at providing short-term relief, but they could not offer the kind of long-standing change that so many people needed.

Laura’s coaching practice evolved from the understanding that people need a guide to help identify their meaningful work, ground aha moments and give accountability and infrastructure to make lasting changes. Laura leverages her Ph.D. to help her clients find bigger versions of themselves and her strategic and practical skills to create a road map to get there. Learn more about Laura here.


WHAT’S NEXT PARTICIPANT TESTIMONIALS:

"I want to thank you both again for the last four wonderful weeks of "What's Next?" The class exceeded all my expectations and was truly insightful. I appreciate your thoughtful approach and stimulating content. It is such a pleasure to have discovered The Hivery and to have spent time with inspiring, courageous women in class this past month...I did not want the class to end!"

-Sheryl Ott

"I don't have words to describe how valuable I found today's session to be, and how excited I am for the 3 remaining sessions we have. Over the 25 years I've been in the working world, I have worked with a number of career coaches, attended multiple workshops, and purchased countless career books (I just dusted off "Do What You Are" and "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" from my bookshelf). Today's session produced more "aha" moments for me than any I can remember from years past, and we are just at the beginning."

-Anonymous

"I met a friend for lunch who asked me about the workshop and I was happy to tell her the two top take-aways for me were: (1) understanding all the aspects of my life and how they fit together (2) how to structure my schedule in a way that compartmentalizes all the pieces. SO MUCH BETTER."

-Monique Johnson

"While I know I have the knowledge, the courage and the intelligence it is all still quite a scary process... I am putting my best foot forward and filing my life with lots of positive support and encouragement. I am so thankful to have found the combination of the two of you to help me along this path!"

-Karen Polite Sullivan

"Participating in What's Next has provided me with an important opportunity to re-visit self inventory work I completed previously, and then to use that work to take significant, concrete steps towards breathing life into my teen coaching practice. I loved learning from Laura and Linda, as well as from the other participants. Through the five weeks of the workshop, I received a number of helpful suggestions which will help tremendously as I move forward. And finally, participating in What's Next gave me space to formulate important questions and explore solutions."

-Jennifer Labovich

"This class was lead by very professional, excellent life coaches! The group of women were supportive, loving and kind, so much so, that it allowed all of us to open our hearts and feel safe asking for help and supporting each other. I loved all the honesty and beautiful stories we shared and the friendships made...hopefully for a long time!"

-Suzanne Roth-Paul

"I was stuck thinking that earning money for my work was going to be difficult after years of volunteer work. This workshop has been extremely helpful in learning more about myself, my interests and possible directions I can take. Now I am networking and feel optimistic and re-charged. Thank you Laura and Linda!"

About 1440 Multiversity

1440 Multiversity is a place to experience time differently—exploring what matters to you, while surrounded by fresh air, delicious food, wellness classes, many ways to unwind, and opportunities to connect with yourself and others. Whether you come for a program with world-renowned faculty or spend a weekend on campus taking 1440 specialty classes, you can look forward to the perfect blend of learning, vacation, and space for reflection.

The natural world has been an inspirational catalyst of wonder and creativity for 1440 since its inception. It was while spending time in her garden that cofounder Joanie Kriens recognized the beauty of the moment she was in, and thought about all of the minutes available to experience the feeling of being fully alive. That’s the inspiration for 1440. Once Joanie and her husband Scott decided to co-found a place where people could stay and explore what’s most meaningful to them, this 75-acre campus became the clear choice because of its towering, ancient redwoods.

Laura began her career as the head of client services for retreat style resorts and spas, helping people center and refocus themselves while escaping the daily challenges of modern life. While overseeing spa programs and working as a massage therapist, she discovered that retreats were great at providing short-term relief, but they could not offer the kind of long-standing change that so many people needed.

Laura’s coaching practice evolved from the understanding that people need a guide to help identify their meaningful work, ground aha moments and give accountability and infrastructure to make lasting changes. Laura leverages her Ph.D. to help her clients find bigger versions of themselves and her strategic and practical skills to create a road map to get there. Learn more about Laura here.

The Hivery Incubator 3-Month Program Information Session with Grace Kraaijvanger

Everyone has a story. And each of us has reason to share it. Whether you’re a business owner, a freelancer, you’re thinking about going back to work, or you have a presence online (that’s everyone, really), personal branding is the way in which you tell your story. It creates an emotional connection to who you are, what your past experience has taught you, and where you would like to go. 

As we explore what's next for us, whether that's starting a new business, considering going back to work, or starting a new independent consultancy, it's imperative that we are thoughtful about our personal brand presence, both online and offline.

Creativity Circle: The Science of Sharing Through The Lens of Cognitive Science

The Science of Sharing through the Lens of Cognitive Science

Join us for an opportunity to explore your creativity in community! The Creativity Circle, held the first Thursday of every month, features guest creatives, artists, writers, designers, and makers who will inspire you to explore your inner artist within the walls of The Hivery's Creative Studio. This month, we're thrilled to welcome back the co-founders of Moxie Road Productions Janine Kovac and Tarja Parssinen.

In this creative session, Janine Kovac and Tarja Parssinen will be teaching us about The Science of Sharing through the Lens of Cognitive Science.

Collaboration and inclusivity are valuable tools in today’s creative workplace. But unfortunately, much of our messaging uses dated, hierarchical, winner-take-all narratives, which actually leads the brain astray. If you’re seeking the right goal but with the wrong road map, you’ll never arrive.

That’s where cognitive sciences comes in.

This discipline—an intersection of linguistics, anthropology, neuroscience, psychology, and computer science—is the study of how we think. Cognitive linguistics analyzes the ways in which language molds our thought patterns and influences brainstorming and creativity.

Learn basic facts about the brain that demonstrate the link between language and motivation and which problem-solving strategies evoke joy, altruism, gratitude, and kindness.

These simple strategies are catalysts that will promote a cooperative spirit rather a competitive one, stimulate abundance over scarcity, and evoke courage instead of fear.

The Science of Sharing teaches basic and easy-to-learn principles from cognitive science that audience members will find intuitively logical.

Key takeaways from this workshop will include:

• Listen to and interpret the creative unconscious
• Identify fear-based narratives and transform them into inspirational roadmaps
• Recognize which colleagues are collaborative soulmates
• Cultivate a healthy work environment that spawns and sustains creativity

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. All are welcome!

About Rachel Hebert

Likes to pretend she’s invisible.

(Except when she’s dancing or hanging from things)

She paints most days.

And is sometimes paid for it.

Early influences include

the waves at night, miracles, orange shag carpet, sand castles, and the Holy Spirit. Later: art school, wanderlust and Hafiz.

Now: a desperate clawing for beauty

About Kate Nicholson

Is an open book.

It’s a mystery and a comedy.

With lots of words. And gold edges.

She holds a camera, a child, and a pen with equal grace. All at once. And smiling.

Her long bones grew on Spanish moss, mud pies, early readings of the DSM, and wide-eyed watching raucous Mardi Gras parades.

A rare bird.

Makes beauty.

Brings ease.

Entrepreneur's Circle: Why Persistence Is Critical To Achieving Success with Persist Game Co-Founders

678A0664_SQ.jpg

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not tackling the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. This month, we welcome two of the co-founders of Persist the Game. Kathryn Ekloff and Amber Hanson will lead a candid dialogue on persisting as entrepreneurs and females in business today. Then they will facilitate a fun interactive conversation about persistence using Persist the Game.

“Nevertheless, She Persisted” is a mantra for ambitious women today. However, how do you actually persist in daily life and business as a 21st century female? Persist the Game Co-founders Kathryn and Amber who along with their third co-founder Marybeth have spent over a decade in Corporate America within male dominated fields and at major technology companies. Where the further they progressed in their careers, the more alone they felt as women. Until one day, an “ah-ha” moment. What if … they built a game. 

Persist is a card game that helps women laugh at the ridiculous role assigned to them in the game of life. The double standards. Being told they are too emotional in performance reviews. Mansplainers and manspreaders. Unsolicited questions about family planning. Not to mention all the ways women are doomed to fail at living up to culture’s standard of womanly virtue and grace. Persist the Game was founded on the notion that learning, laughing and connecting in the face of adversity can help all of us weather moments of insecurity, fear, and doubt that inevitably arise along the way. 

Join Kathryn and Amber as they share their perspective on why persistence is critical to achieving success, what persistence looks like from the lens of Persist the Game and why persisting together is imperative for making forward progress.

Key takeaways of this interactive session include:

  • A candid dialogue on persisting as entrepreneurs and females in business today

  • A better understanding of what persistence is and why we need to persist

  • A fun interactive conversation about persistence using Persist the Game

  • A better understanding of how to persist in good company

Pop Up Shop

From 1. 45 pm - 3 .00 pm there will be a Pop-Up shop to allow attendees and the rest of our community to buy Persist the Game - its the perfect holiday or hostess gift!

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

About the Persist Team

Persist cofounders at The Hivery Entrepreneur Circle.jpg

The three co-Founders of Persist the Game (Kathryn Ekloff, Amber Hanson and Marybeth Pecha) crossed paths in 2015 while navigating our finance careers at Amazon. It was girl crush at first sight. Collectively, we have nearly three decades of experience in corporate finance. One day at a happy hour, a lightbulb went off. We realized these nights together offered a much-needed cathartic release of the stress, frustration, and isolation we felt as women with ambition.We craved something that reminded us we weren’t alone in this journey. We thought, “What if there was a game that celebrated life from the female perspective?”

Kathryn Ekloff - Is a creative soul hiding behind a career in numbers and excel spreadsheets. Kathryn’s keen design eye navigated the way through our product development phase of Persist the Game, and she continues to be the guiding force for all things design related. Outside of co-founding and ongoing design lead for Persist the Game, Kathryn recently transitioned from Finance at Amazon to Google, while also navigating into motherhood. Kathryn has nearly a decade of Corporate experience from Boeing to Google, and is currently living in Seattle, Washington. In her free time, she enjoys scouring Seattle’s thrift and antique stores, spending time with her nearly 1-year old daughter Florence, her miniature poodle Zuzu and her equally creative husband Joey.

Amber Hanson - Amber loves bringing people together to get things done ⎯ from product launches to Cinco de Mayo parties, Amber thrives on a good challenge and likes to have some fun along the way. For Persist the Game, Amber deals with operational pieces of the business, while also dabbling in social media. Amber also enjoys numbers with over a decade of Corporate Finance experience from General Mills to Amazon and is currently based in London as a Finance Lead for Europe Prime Now. In her free time, she enjoys broadening her simple Minnesota farming roots by traveling to new countries (31 and counting) and spending time with her husband Reid, 20lb cat Fuzzy and french bulldog Clyde.

Hivery Circle: Open Mic Night About The Power Of Giving Through Storytelling

November’s Hivery Circle celebrates storytelling and the importance of giving to others.

WEB_HiveryCircle_Midlife_KTS_130_SQ.jpg

At The Hivery we believe in the power of storytelling - that when we tell our stories, and be present to witness others share theirs, magic happens.

This is your chance to participate in a special Open Mic Hivery Circle. Sign up for your three minute slot - limited spots available! Together, we will explore the importance of both gratitude and the act of giving to others in the spirit of Thanksgiving. 

Your story matters and when you use your voice, particularly to share an experience, you start to see the ripple effect it has on those around you.

This does not need to be a rehearsed speech, but is rather the opportunity that you’ve been looking for to stretch yourself in the safety of your community. The topic is broad intentionally to give you room to tell a story that feels right to you. There are no rules; apart from keeping your story to five minutes, this is simply a way for you to use your voice.

UPDATE: SIGN UP LIST IS FULL

Don’t hesitate to come alone and mingle with your Hivery community or feel free to bring a friend. Guests will enjoy lite bites and a tasting of local wines by Qorkz.

ALL ARE WELCOME at this beautiful celebration of giving through storytelling.


The Hivery Circle is one of The Hivery's monthly member events. Mark your calendar for the second Tuesday of each month from 7:00-9:00pm to join this program.

Writer's Circle: How To Write A Gratitude Letter With Melanie Vetter

A supportive group of writers who gather together every month at The Hivery to share resources, wisdom, experiences, and receive writer-to-writer support! 

Keep your writing projects in focus by attending The Hivery's monthly Writer's Circle. After each gathering, we continue to cheer each other on while writing at The Hivery, attending other Hivery community events, workshops and participating in our online forums. Come join us!

In November, we are excited to have transformative writing coach Melanie Vetter teaching a how to write love and gratitude letter workshop.

It’s easy to put off writing your deep thoughts and feelings. You’re busy. You worry about saying the right thing or how to say what you really feel. You mean to do it, but you just keep putting it off.

Sharing your love, gratitude, hopes and dreams shouldn’t be hard

You’re a great friend, sister, brother, daughter, son, mentor or parent and you want to share the feelings in your heart for the people you care about. You worry that the people who matter don’t really know how you feel and you want them to know.

You have stories and wisdom, hopes, dreams, love and gratitude to share with someone special. But you struggle for a great way to tell them – a way that they will hear, and also feel, all your love and gratitude.

Gratitude letters are a wonderful way to share your love and gratitude in a way that feels good for the reader and you.

Melanie will guide you through how to write one and how it can deepen your connection with a friend or a loved one during this special lunchtime workshop in the spirit of Thanksgiving.

The Writer's Circle is facilitated by Hivery Member, Thais Derich. Thais Derich's memoir—Second Chance: A Mother’s Quest for a Natural Birth after a Cesarean (She Writes Press, May 9, 2017)—was a finalist for the Foreword Reviews' 2017 Book of the Year Award. Second Chance was also a finalist for the Creative Non-Fiction Magazine’s Baby Anthology. Thais is an international writer and public speaker on "Being the Hero of Your Life" and "Seeing Invisible Choices" in childbirth and beyond! She is also the founder of the "Write Your Impact" book program.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. BYO brown-bag lunch discussion.  All are welcome!

The Hivery's Idea To Action: Two-Week Workshop Series

Megan Flatt speaking.jpg

You have great ideas. A million great ideas. But those ideas...rarely turn into action. You are busy, you are running a business and running your life. There are so many moving pieces. Your big ideas...feel pretty daunting.

That, is about to change.

In this two-part workshop series by The Hivery happening on Wednesday November 7th and Wednesday 14th at 12. 00 pm - 4.00 pm. Our workshop leader Megan Flatt will help you get out of idea overwhelm, conquer time scarcity and get you into strategic action to bring your brilliant ideas into the world. We'll turn your big ideas into actionable steps. We’ll also challenge the idea that you “don’t have enough time” with mindset principles and tangible time management strategies, so you can uncover all the time you need to accomplish your goals and claim your time.

Whether you want to start to create a new business offering, launch a course, retreat, podcast or create an opportunity to support your online network or local community, The Hivery’s Idea To Action will help you get clarity, create a manifesto and map out your ideas to action.

Individually and as a group, you will cover the following:

  • You'll create your own personal recipe for success

  • Understand why big ideas don't turn into action, and what you can do differently to change that

  • You'll learn the art of a well crafted to do list

  • Create time boundaries and guidelines to get everything done and not feel burnt out at the end of the day

  • How to pick the best ideas and actually do less, better

WHAT IS REQUIRED FROM IDEA TO ACTION PARTICIPANTS?

You just need an idea, it can be something that is always on your ‘to-do list’ or perhaps its an idea that has been following you around for a while now and its time to fully step into the prospect of making it happen.

Interested in learning more before signing up?

Join The Hivery's Idea To Action workshop leader Megan Flatt for a free information session and post-it planning party on Wednesday, October 24th from 12.00-1:00 pm to learn more about this session. Get all of your questions answered in a jam packed hour!

About Rachel Hebert

Likes to pretend she’s invisible.

(Except when she’s dancing or hanging from things)

She paints most days.

And is sometimes paid for it.

Early influences include

the waves at night, miracles, orange shag carpet, sand castles, and the Holy Spirit. Later: art school, wanderlust and Hafiz.

Now: a desperate clawing for beauty

About Kate Nicholson

Is an open book.

It’s a mystery and a comedy.

With lots of words. And gold edges.

She holds a camera, a child, and a pen with equal grace. All at once. And smiling.

Her long bones grew on Spanish moss, mud pies, early readings of the DSM, and wide-eyed watching raucous Mardi Gras parades.

A rare bird.

Makes beauty.

Brings ease.

SD_Soulscape_Retreat_2018_484.jpg

In this guided hour-long ceremony to celebrate Día de los Muertos (Day Of The Dead), Hivery member, Nicole Gnutzman, will offer a taste of her Cacao Medicine Journeys. The Day of the Dead is a day to honor our ancestors with festivities and food, including chocolate.

Nicole will share her ceremonial cacao drink, guided meditation and sacred music as she calls in (with her beautiful Buffalo drum) the directions and elements, our spirit animals, ancestors and spirit guides to join us and bring us their wisdom, guidance and medicine.

Feel free to bring an offering for the altar (flowers, food), a photo of an ancestor, and something special you would like blessed.

This session is one where we lie down and go on a guided journey, so there will be a few yoga mats available or you can bring your own. And if you prefer to do this in seated position that’s perfectly ok too. This form of meditation is relaxing and restorative, a perfect way to take a break from your screen, get grounded and begin your afternoon with clarity.

The Importance Of Resilience + Overcoming Fear With Roz Savage

Roz Savage and boat.jpg

We have a special opportunity to welcome record-holding rower, eco-adventurer, and resilience coach Roz Savage to The Hivery.

An environmental epiphany led Roz to a radical life change, leaving an 11-year career as a management consultant to become the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans.

Through her experiences she has gained first-hand knowledge and insights into courage, resilience and personal determination. She is now a powerful advocate for unlocking potential and living a purpose-driven life. Her realization of two profound truths are at the heart of her adventurous experience and message:

1) We are all capable of much more than we dare to believe we are.

2) Any worthy endeavor requires an inspirational vision combined with a team committed to mastery.

Roz loves sharing her story and her insights on the power and benefits of living outside your comfort zone. Her bold teachings across both private and professional spectrums reveal the tools for success to global corporate and academic audiences.

Key takeaways include:

  • Practical tools for overcoming the fear that holds us back from true engagement and fulfillment.

  • Roz’s central premise is that courage is not the absence of fear, but rather feeling the fear while being sufficiently motivated to move past the fear towards success.

  • Roz emphasizes how vital it is to leap into life’s great adventure, striking the right balance between caution and boldness.

Heroic, epic, inspiring, historic
— Sir Richard Branson
Roz’s story ignites teams to tap into their core
potential, because at the heart of Roz’s message is
that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things.
— Blanca Juti, Chief Relations Officer, Heineken

The journey into your Aging Process doesn't have to be defined by pain, stiffness, disease and disability. It can be totally re-scripted into grace, flow and connection that leads you into an expansive, gratifying and sustainable life as you chronologically add the years!

Small changes can make a huge difference and Erin will show you how fully connecting with your body can give you choices you never knew you had!

Wellness Wednesday: Guided Visual Meditation With Cacao

unnamed-1.jpg

In this guided visual meditation, Hivery member, Nicole Gnutzman, brings in the clarifying power of cacao. She also calls in (with her beautiful Buffalo drum) the directions and elements, our spirit animals, ancestors and spirit guides to join us and bring us their wisdom, guidance and medicine.

This shamanic form of meditation is one where we lie down and go on a guided journey, so there will be a few yoga mats available or you can bring your own. And if you prefer to do this in seated position that’s perfectly ok too. This form of meditation is relaxing and restorative, a perfect way to begin your afternoon.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $20 for non-members. All are welcome!

MORE ABOUT THE HIVERY'S IDEAS TO ACTION SERIES

Megan Flatt Post it planning.jpg

In this two-part workshop series Megan is going to help you get out of idea overwhelm, conquer time scarcity and get you into strategic action to bring your brilliant ideas into the world.

The Product of You: A Two-Week Personal Branding Workshop with Grace Kraaijvanger

Everyone has a story. And each of us has reason to share it. Whether you’re a business owner, a freelancer, you’re thinking about going back to work, or you have a presence online (that’s everyone, really), personal branding is the way in which you tell your story. It creates an emotional connection to who you are, what your past experience has taught you, and where you would like to go. 

As we explore what's next for us, whether that's starting a new business, considering going back to work, or starting a new independent consultancy, it's imperative that we are thoughtful about our personal brand presence, both online and offline.

Entrepreneur's Circle: Step Into Your Moxie with Alexia Vernon

Alexia Vernon square.jpg

Join us for our casual and conversational Entrepreneur's Circle at The Hivery! This is another way to make sure you're not going at the business of building a business on your own, but rather with the trusted circle of The Hivery community. This month, we welcome speaking and leadership coach Alexia vernon, the creator of the Spotlight Speaking Community and Alexia Vernon Empowerment, to lead our monthly circle.

Whether you are at the start of your career, launching or scaling a business, messily shuffling between work and motherhood, or an established leader looking to develop the women behind you, this one-of-a-kind presentation will move you to speak up for yourself and the ideas and issues that matter most to you.

Branded a “Moxie Maven” by President Obama’s White House Office of Public Engagement for her unique and effective approach to female empowerment, Alexia Vernon's equal parts practical, poetic and playful delivery style make her a sought-after speaking and leadership coach.

Alexia's new book 'Step into Your Moxie: Amplify Your Voice, Visibility, and Influence in the World'  is a soul-stirring call-to-action for women to speak up and out—in their careers, businesses, and homes. Alexia fuses hilarious and at turns heartbreaking stories with mindful and actionable advice for women to slay diminishing self-talk and cultivate the mindset and behaviors to walk into any room (or onto any stage) and use their words to move people to take action.

This presentation (and the message of her book) are perfect for high-performing, socially-conscious women who are already busting big moves in the world and are ready to heighten their communication impact, compile practical tools to enhance their presentations, negotiations and day-to-day conversations (particularly the risky ones), and who enjoy a speaker who is wise, witty and full of heart.

Key takeaways include:

  • Reconcile your desire to claim visibility with the insecurity increased visibility often triggers, so you can move forward - fast.

  • Reclaim the role of protagonist in your own story and lay the foundation for empowered self-talk and influential communication.

  • Speak your truth to communicate what you want clearly - and with empathy and compassion - so others can act on your words.

  • Adopt a growth mindset to experience setbacks as opportunities that allow you to cultivate resilience and grit.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. This is a BYO brown-bag lunch discussion. All are welcome!

Inner Knowing for Creators: From Meditation to Connection with Rosie Acosta

Nothing can compare to a physical face-to-face connection. The feel of a genuine laugh or the satisfaction of sharing ideas in person is far better than reading a text and misunderstanding the intended meaning of the typed message. Meditation can help us explore our inner landscape and create a deep relationship to who we are, but that connection can often get "lost in translation" when we are out in the world. This meditation workshop will explore the relationship between Meditation and Connection and how it is more important now more than ever. Learn how we can utilize this practice to create more union, and community with the people in your life. Learn how to bring the practice outwards once you've gone inward.

Do we truly have the right to dream? What drives our hunger to dream? What truly breaks our hearts?

The session will inspire participants to realize that we, as women, gatekeepers and entrepreneurs,  are a massive, untapped, global resource needed in this world. The session pulls from indigenous wisdom rooted in sacred experience and generations of lives, modern research, and daily rituals and inspires women entrepreneurs to be part of a circle of sacred sisterhood and ignite their dreams for the collective good.

Discover Your “Secret Sauce” as a Speaker and Create Presentations That Leave Audience Members Eager to Work with You with Alexia Vernon

Public speaking is one of the most effective ways to attract the right clients to your business, position yourself as a thought leader, and make a big impact in the world. Unfortunately, most entrepreneurs who speak are following tired formulas for how to present (and sell) and are wildly disconnected from their own authentic voice and point of view. In this dynamic, interactive workshop, you will shift from being an “expert” to being a truly transformational speaker and discover the core components of designing presentations that deliver heaps of value and positively (and radically!) transform your audience's lives.

Writer's Circle: Time Management for Writers with Megan Flatt

A supportive group of writers who gather together every month at The Hivery to share resources, wisdom, experiences, and receive writer-to-writer support! 

Keep your writing projects in focus by attending The Hivery's monthly Writer's Circle. After each gathering, we continue to cheer each other on while writing at The Hivery, attending other Hivery community events, workshops and participating in our online forums. Come join us!

In October, we are excited to have business strategist Megan Flatt teach a writer’s specific time management workshop.

If you've ever just needed to 'find more time' as a writer, then you aren't going to want to miss this Writers Circle. Megan will share her best tips for writers around mindset principles and tangible time management strategies, so you can uncover all the time you need to accomplish your writing goals.

The Writer's Circle is facilitated by Hivery Member, Thais Derich. Thais Derich's memoir—Second Chance: A Mother’s Quest for a Natural Birth after a Cesarean (She Writes Press, May 9, 2017)—was a finalist for the Foreword Reviews' 2017 Book of the Year Award. Second Chance was also a finalist for the Creative Non-Fiction Magazine’s Baby Anthology. Thais is an international writer and public speaker on "Being the Hero of Your Life" and "Seeing Invisible Choices" in childbirth and beyond! She is also the founder of the "Write Your Impact" book program.

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. BYO brown-bag lunch discussion.  All are welcome!
