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? Asking these questions and honoring their answers is a sacred process that ignites our dreams and heal what silences us as well as the world. In this remarkable session, the presenters will offer participants with a powerful lens to create a fertile ground for harnessing the feminine energy for a better world. 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.

New Minimalism: Aligning Your Life with Your Values with Kyle Quilici and Cary Fortin

A decluttered home not only creates clarity and calm in your home life but also radiates out into your work life and social life.  In pursuit of a simplified home, you reveal for yourself what matters most and actively shed the rest. By aligning your home (and life) with your values, you will become more effective with your time and more present in your relationships. In this workshop, you’ll journal your way to understanding your personal roadblocks related to decluttering and gain actionable tips to maintain the newfound order in all aspects of your life.

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.

Self-Care and Self-Compassion for Leaders with Anna Kawar

Leadership begins with the self. The lens by which we treat ourselves is the lens by which we treat others.

In this lunch session, we will discuss how to realistically care for yourself as a leader and trade resources and practices for genuine self-compassion.
