Root Down to Rise Up: A Group Mentorship Program

Helping You Make Your Own Kind Of Difference

Have you ever found yourself saying something like this about an unspoken dream?

“I’d do it if I had more time.”

“I’d do it, but I don’t think I can make a real difference.”

“I’m too old to start something new.”

We know how uncomfortable this can feel. A dream stopped feels like you are holding your breath, indefinitely. It deprives the world of something only you can offer.

Why now?

We are living in a time when your dreams and hopes are needed. When your ability and courage to act upon them asks to be lived into.

Deferring your dream can seem like the easy path, but keeping that unnamed, interrupted impulse contained is like walking for years with a grain of sand in your spirit.

The discomfort only grows.

If you’re feeling this way, then Root Down to Rise Up is for you.

We’ve created this group mentorship program to support you, so you can finally exhale. It’s for all of you with an unspoken dream insistently bumping against the back of your mind. You who want to make a difference in your own way.

What this Group Mentorship Program offers you…

Real change begins with the simple act of people talking about what they care about. — Margaret Wheatley

Birthing a close-held dream can be too hard to do on your own. This is where Root Down to Rise Up comes in: to support, listen, encourage, brainstorm, collaborate, put new ideas into practice, and have fun. To come home to a community where you are held gently accountable to your commitments and newly realized skills.

It’s in this group mentorship program where you will claim and tap into inner strength, courage, and vitality.

The program is for a small group of dedicated people committed to seeing their deepest intentions come to light through inquiry, group connection, and skills development.

It’s a group mentorship experience committed to helping you develop inner clarity, deepen your sense of the sacred in every action and decision, and strengthen your personal leadership and agency in a world that needs what you have to offer.

Root Down to Rise Up offers community and individual encouragement as you discover, nourish, refine, and act on your unique way of making meaningful change.

Through our time together you will:

  • Name your dream and transform it into an intention with shape and focus.
  • Forge concrete actions to move your intention into the world, in your own way, one doable step at a time.
  • Claim your own definition of personal leadership; create and cultivate this leadership in your daily life as sacred practice.
  • Master and personalize mind-body practices that cultivate inner strength, courage, and vitality.

How Root Down to Rise Up will work…

It will likely be a one-day program offered on a weekend to be scheduled for early 2018.


Each session will include guided meditation, gentle movement and mindfulness practices to nourish the body and recharge, and skill-building activities held in a safe, compassionate environment.

Transforming a long-held dream into action that truly serves you and your values out in the world calls for a conscious, extended commitment to your personal growth. We invite you to step into the power of that commitment!

With Kindness,

Now is the time to know

That all that you do is sacred.

Now why not consider

A lasting truce with yourself and Spirit?
