4PM – 5PM: Welcome! Orientation and Intention setting.

The Red Shoes Experience is about power, relationships and your ability to bring about the changes that you most want to see. It’s about more than just how to have what you want – it’s about your identity and your ethical imperative to put yourself first.  You honoring YOU in this way serves everyone!

5PM – 8 PM: Evolution, the feminine narrative and clarifying emergent values!  Discontent with what is and the pull of unrealized pleasure drives our evolution. What brings you pleasure – real, authentic, grounded pleasure? Know it. Prioritize it. Live it.

Sounds simple, right? For some it might be, but, for others, it’s not. Years of suppressing your needs and desires in order to be there for everyone else can leave you so disconnected from your inner yearnings that you’ve gone numb to them. Your thoughts about the ‘rightness’ or ‘wrongness’ of wanting, fear of seeming selfish or ungrateful, and uncertainty about ever actually being able to have those desires, all make it hard to articulate them.

Compounding the challenge is the deep internal upheaval that happens in evolving women. Your Internal Value Systems shift. The person you’ve been is no longer able to carry you into the next phase of your life. Relationships change. The once important and pleasurable things lose their allure. Old goals don’t drive you. You question your purpose. Without a framework to make sense of this process you can feel a bit crazy and frustrated with yourself AND everyone around you. You’ll get that framework, locate yourself in your Shero’s Journey and learn what your emergent hierarchy of values is calling you towards.

8:00 PM: Light Dinner – provided

Saturday Sept 23, 2017

Before 9 AM: Free time! Enjoy an early morning walk in the aspens, wander down Main Street for breakfast or stretch into the day with some NIA.

This day will focus primarily on overcoming the three main blocks to having the relationships and experiences you want: (1) issues of worthiness, (2) uncertainty about how to say what you want, and (3) fear of conflict.

9AM – Noon: Yes, You’re worth it! At some level you know that it’s necessary to put yourself first. You can recite the airplane safety speech about putting on your oxygen mask before your child’s, and say something about being able to give more if your cup is full. But, it’s just not always easy to do. You have responsibilities. People need you. You’d feel bad if you let them down. Right? Guilt and shame are the two most powerfully restrictive emotions. Paradoxically, when faced head on with wisdom and skill, they offer you the greatest opportunity for true liberation, expansion and power.

You will learn an extraordinarily powerful tool to collapse them and deepen into a more wholehearted relationship with yourself. This relationship is the one that matters most!

12:30 – 2:00 PM Lunch – provided

2:30 PM – 4:00 PM: Speak up and sell yourself. Having the personal relationships, professional connections and life experiences that pull you forward towards your highest aspirations, requires you to speak up for what you believe in, what you want and what you have to offer. You will have to sell yourself. The truth is, we’re all selling ourselves all the time – trying to communicate with kids, spouses, co-workers and clients in ways that get them to do what we want. It doesn’t always go well. In this session you’ll learn what to say, when to say it and what to do to give the other person room to say ‘yes’.

4:00 PM – 4:30 Break

4:30 PM – 6:00 PM: Stand in your power. Every person is living according to their own unique hierarchy of values. No two people have the same set of values. Bumping into those different values is inevitable. Conflict results. As you step more fully into your power, being clear on what you want and what you don’t want, not everyone will go along as a happy supporter. You’ll face pushback. You will have to set boundaries. You must learn to stay centered in the face of aggression, hold your ground and stay true to your authentic self. In this session you’ll learn how to tap into the wisdom of your body to manage your emotions, keep yourself present and ultimately lead yourself and the other person where you want to go.

6:00PM – 7:00 PM: Break

Before 9:00 AM: Free time!

9:00AM – 11:30AM: Connect and create. Evolving women need community. To make the changes you want to see in your personal life, professional environment or larger community, you cannot do it alone. Growth is not easy. The thoughts and habits of your old identity are powerful forces. In addition to a wise framework and powerful tools, it is essential to have the support of like-minded women and ways to connect with them easily. In this session we’ll explore how you can do that.

11:30 AM – Noon: Wrap up
