How you show up in the bedroom affects how you navigate power dynamics in the boardroom. It affects every area of life, in fact. Being clear and aware of your needs, desires, and ability to communicate boundaries, is the foundation of fulfillment and success whether you’re partnered or not, whether you work in a male-dominated field or not. Most modern professional women are being told to “lean in” and get better at negotiating. But we haven’t been taught to source our power from a place far more potent than just intellect alone, or negotiating skills. It’s time to integrate the full range of our powers–including ones that often get left out of textbooks and popular rhetoric.
Wednesday, Jan. 9 @ 7-9pm

No, this isn’t a throw-back to 1950’s Betty Crocker version of feminine power. Nor is it a hard-line bet for playing the game better than men. It’s beyond either extreme and a whole lot more enlivening and satisfying for everyone. Enter: Embodied Intelligence. Bringing one’s whole self to the workplace. Being authentically expressed, curious, remaining open and receptive while firm in one’s boundaries. Sound too good to be true? I’ve seen it in action and it works.
Let’s dive in and explore. There’s plenty of room and the gold is real. No more starving for crumbs from the “big boys;” no more begging to play the old games; it’s time we reclaim a more whole, human way of leading and producing, one that works better for everyone.
Join us for an evening of delightful inquiry, enlivening exchange, experiential dialogue and unexpected insights. The New Feminine Paradigm is here!
