Coming Into Your Own – AN INNER LEADERSHIP PROGRAM FOR WOMEN
For women making changes In their lives, in their leadership, and in the world
10-13 November 2022
Coming Into Your Own is a personal leadership development program for women, who are interested in engaging in the process of reflection, exploration, and regeneration.
The 3-and a half day face-to-face workshop in a retreat setting is the hub of a 3-month personal development experience for women, which starts with a one-on-one startup call and preparatory readings for reflection, and concludes with a post-workshop individualized coaching follow-up with a faculty guide, that reinforces insights gained, allows you to gauge your progress and helps you consider any further support that you may need to meet your identified goals.
Many women find that in the process of striving to succeed they have developed only part of who they are while leaving vital aspects of themselves behind or reporting feeling empty, burned out, or invisible despite significant achievements. We have found ways to help you access your reservoir of presence and to bring forward a fuller expression of yourself. We will guide you in mastering the relationship between inner dynamics and work/life challenges.
Our approach deliberately works with the whole individual – the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of each woman – to encourage the introspection that we think is critical for our time. We combine the attention of one-on-one relationships with small group work and the transforming power of the circle. We focus on each woman’s individual journey, uncovering how she has navigated her life, and what her struggles and successes have been. We will work together to identify current and emerging challenges and support each woman in her aspirations and development. It is our hope that this work will contribute to addressing the fragmentation in the world, the barrenness in many of our workplaces, and the urge to live in a way that responds to the stresses of this era.
Coming Into Your Own personal development program is offered to women for 15 years throughout the US and Europe will be in Bulgaria for the 2nd time, after the 2014 introduction.
Please, book November 10-13, 2022 in your calendar for a transformational retreat in a beautiful setting in nature together with a group of very special women, like yourselves!
Coming into Your Own (CIYO) is a personal leadership development program for women who are interested in engaging in the process of reflection, exploration, and regeneration. Life challenges, juggling various hats (such as mother, wife, daughter, and working woman), and the desire to succeed in all, may have caused us to ignore some parts of ourselves and develop others. However, we can only feel fulfilled if we live as a whole: nurturing our mind, body, and spirit. The flowing female energy is not only the natural energy that we need to express to feel whole, but it is also what the universe needs for balance and harmony.
If you are interested in learning more about your uniqueness as a woman, and how you can bring your whole self into all aspects of your life and deal more fully with life challenges, this program is for you. This program is result-oriented; not only does it create new awareness in participants, but it also ties this insight back to our professional and personal lives. Women will find the thread of their own life calling and take concrete steps into the future on their unique path.
The 3-day retreat program will be led by Burcu Yalman, a Faculty member, and me as an Associate Faculty. The language of the program will be English. There will be 2 half an hour individual coaching tele-sessions, the first one prior to the retreat and the second - 1 month following the retreat.
Some of the questions we address regularly from women all over the world are:
How can I fully discover my authentic self and live it in all my roles?
How can I access my wholeness and express it in my leadership?
How can I speak my authentic leadership ‘voice’ and stand in my true stature?
How can I find and maintain a work/home/spiritual life balance?
How can I balance my heart-mind and brain-mind?
How can I utilize my feelings and emotions as strengths for impactful leadership?
How can I focus more on life-birthing and growing thoughts and let go of any limiting thoughts, beliefs, biases, and judgments?
How can I draw boundaries in my relationships for the well-being of the whole?
What is most meaningful for me? What meaning do I want to create and how?
How do I build healthy working environments where we can all contribute and flourish in the ways we are truly meant to?
How do I manage my relationships effectively and show up skillfully and clearly in challenging conversations?
How do I bring about positive change in a skillful and systemic way?
The world is undergoing a transformation from a fear-based to a love-based structure. We, as women who raise and shape the future of our world, have a more significant role ever during this transformation period. In order to spread love, which is the essence of our being, we surely need to release our own fears first. It is my sincere opinion that CIYO will be a key contributor to this process.
