Self-Connection for Survival: How to Move from Being Reactive to Being Resourced

Are you a woman who gives to others, and who:

Is feeling overwhelmed by the number of people who need you and wants to find a way to bring in energy or give yourself more time?

Knows that you are out of alignment in your life and are ready to prioritize what matters most to you in order to help you live with integrity?

Wants to address the state of disconnection inside of you and develop sustainable self-care skills that are proven to work in your daily life?

This program will give you the space and support to help you to re-center, ground, and balance so that you are resourced and can be there for the people in your life that need you. It will give you the knowledge and practices to heal or prepare yourself for greatness and abundance in your life!

This program will help you:

-Feel empowered in your decisions during difficult life changes and big transitions.

-Work from a place of balance and steadiness even with unknowns or chaos nearby.

-Sustain yourself by bringing in more gentleness and tenderness into your everyday.

-Develop practices for nurturing, loving, and caring for yourself as much as others.

-Act from a place of power, openness, and joy when serving out in the wider world.

-Resource yourself through connection and being in community with other women.

This program is led by me, Leora Ward, a trained life coach, yoga instructor, and facilitator. After years of working in the social justice, women's empowerment, and humanitarian fields and feeling burnt out, I decided there had to be a better way to both help people in need and prioritize my own desires in a big way.

Once I mastered these skills, I began supporting other women who struggle with self-love and balance, who want to find a gentler way to serve and make a positive difference in the world. My approach emphasizes self-care – in recognition that we are better caretakers, activists, and change makers when we are good to ourselves and our bodies.

In this program, I will guide you through a process to clarify:

Your Beliefs: I help you to identify the negative stories and beliefs that cause you pain. You become clear about the messages present and that you carry in your head around not being enough, doing enough, or being good enough. You start to question the self-limiting beliefs and acknowledge the impact they have in your life in order to step into your true power and choice.

Your Feelings: I help you to articulate the heartfelt feelings you associate with your beliefs. You befriend your feelings of overwhelm, tiredness, and despair in order to understand them. You explore what is happening in your heart so that you can honor yourself from a more whole and meaningful place. Your feelings also begin to inform your underlying needs and personal values.

Your Needs: I help you to name the needs underlying your feelings of overwhelm and tiredness. You start to uncover why you are feeling what’s inside and what you need on a deeper level. Your needs work to inform your actions and give insight into what drives you and what you most long for in life. It also supports you to use your body effectively to connect with yourself.

Your Values: I help to remind you of your deepest personal values. You name what matters most to you, brings you fulfillment, and makes you feel alive in every moment. Your values are then guideposts as you navigate important decisions and difficult transitions that can throw you off balance. They move you to action on a journey to be in greater alignment with yourself.

After this program, you will be able to:
-Identify your feelings, needs, and values in order to self-connect and remind you what’s important in the heat of the moment
-Question and confront your deepest self-limiting beliefs in order to transform them into more loving and supportive self-talk
-Practice visioning and connecting to a future that is in line with your desires and will help you manifest your personal dreams
-Make a concrete and doable plan to bring in more self-love, resources, and sisterhood so that you can be held in hard times

-Feel connected to your desires and what brings you pleasure so you can more regularly say, “YES!”, to what makes you happy


You participate in 6 calls over 3 months and receive empathy from another program participant for 6 weeks (content and empathy calls happen every other week). The combination of learning and practicing empathy with another like-minded woman will support you in self-connection as well as developing new habits. This ensures you have both inner and outer resources particularly if you are on the verge of burnout or going through a life transition.

Dates: Sundays, 10am-11am ET: September 18- November 27th.  Online platform. All calls will be recorded in case your traveling or cannot join us live. 

Prices: Early-bird price $200 now through 8/18, Regular price $250, 8/18 through 9/18.  I offer 2 scholarships for women who would benefit. Please email me at to express your interest.

If you are ready to feel more connected in your relationships, more confident in your purpose and energized to serve in the world, then let’s get started!

Are you thinking "This sounds good AND I think I'll wait"? CAUTION: If you have a pattern of consistently putting yourself LAST, now is the time to break it.  

I used to read about the idea of being happier and think, "I don’t have time for that and can’t prioritize it now". And, not coincidentally, I was exhausted and on the edge of burn out much of the time. Since then, I've learned... and now I'm on a mission to share that with other women just like me. 

So, if you're tired of feeling like you are about to fall over and ready to feel better in your mind and body, then I urge you to register NOW. This is your chance to choose your happiness, your desires, and your needs. This is your chance to do something for YOURSELF and shift the patterns of the past. By registering, you choose a new direction, you choose a new path, you choose YOU! So, don’t wait until the last minute to join us. Sign-up before August 18th and be rewarded with a 20% discount off the regular price of this new and exciting program.
