Events & Workshops

Sarah hosts experiential and participative workshops throughout the year to support her clients and give them practical tools to shift their state of mind or work through any difficulties they are facing.

They are a beautiful combination of delving deep into one's heart to find clarity, and applying the learning through tools that allow participants to move forward and feel empowered.

Participants will walk out a little taller and with the confidence to move forward toward what’s important to them, whether that’s a specific relationship or career or health goal or even an emotional goal like more joy.

The question each workshop asks is, "How can we love and accept who we are so that we get to realize and appreciate who we are becoming?"

And through exploring their own answers to this question, participants will experience...


uncovering new perspectives through self-reflective strategies

a creative space free of judgments, with no "right" or "wrong" answers

a feeling of empowerment and self-confidence in taking action

There is nothing to hide, to prove or to fix– though we all have areas where we can acknowledge our challenges and discover a more compassionate truth while growing mastery.
