The Healing Business Weekend

JoshuaTree-9.jpg

The Healing Business Weekend is a 2-night retreat for women & non-binary business owners who are aching for the very kind of attention and healing they bring to their clients.

Almost exactly a year ago I was gifted the question "What would it take for my business to be well?" Answering this question and putting my actual business in the context of healing changed the trajectory of everything. I began to understand what it really means to treat myself as my business' primary asset. I stopped comparing myself to others and listening to the latest & greatest advice about growing my business and instead focused on doing what I needed to do for Be With to be well, really truly well. This process led me to being honest about what I actually want for my business & taking action towards it, tripling my income, prioritizing travel and finally getting the rest I've been craving.

This weekend is a chance for you to do the same, to get away from hustle of working in your business so you can pull back the lens and take care of healing your business and its most important asset - you. 

We'll be spending the weekend in historic Prince Edward County known for its wines, culture and serene nature. The weekend will include my Be With Masterclass, Maggie's Heal Your Business Workshop (which I'm OBSESSED with), and Sophie Luxton's Soulful Movement Class to help us integrate it all into the body. All workshops and meals are included, and we'll create a Facebook group to help coordinate carpooling from Toronto. Check out the PDF below for all the details, and register by e-mailing me at contact@bewith.org

BE WITH WORKSHOP + MASTERCLASS: SYRACUSE, NY

to Aug 1

BE WITH WORKSHOP + MASTERCLASS: SYRACUSE, NY

Ever since traveling to Austin earlier this year, I've been wanting to visit other cities and share this powerful 2-part workshop with as many cis & trans women and genderqueer folks as possible. I'm honored to partner with Holly from HollyLowery.com, Ophelia's Place and Mindful Yoga to bring this event series to the Syracuse community.

The Be With Workshop | Tuesday, July 31, 6-9pm
LOCATION: Ophelia's Place

That critical voice you have playing on loop inside your head - you're not alone in it. It may be a total bummer and bad for your mental health, but how do you actually transform it?

That's what we'll be exploring in this workshop.

Most of us are walking around exhausted from trying to improve ourselves - we want to straighten our posture, clean up our eating habits, brighten our skin, increase our savings, and curate our homes. We want it all to look and feel just right. So we put in the work and the time and the love, and then we step back and wonder why none of it ever feels like enough.

The problem is that constantly striving to become a better version of ourselves is only ever going to make us feel inadequate in the present moment. When we're always chasing some imaginary better, we actually invalidate and leave behind our current, precious selves.

It's time we learn how to treat ourselves with some tender loving care. So let's flip the script! Instead of attending to your improvement, let's attend to you, just as you are right now. The Be With approach is all about learning to be with yourself by listening to and respecting what you need and what you feel. Because when we start from a place of enoughness, then the door opens to all possibilities of growth - growth built on a healthy and respectful relationship with yourself.

Our workshop will include a group discussion, journaling, and a lively presentation from Barbara sharing how the Be With approach helped her heal from chronic depression, find love, navigate difficult family and church relationships, and begin the business of her dreams.

The Be With Masterclass | Wednesday, August 1, 6-9pm
LOCATION: Mindful Yoga

This will be an intimate event, where participants will be invited to try and build on the learning from the Be With Workshop the previous night for themselves. There will be opportunities for one-on-one coaching, deep exploration and applicable learning. The Masterclass will be limited to 10 cis & transwomen/genderqueer folks, and is ideal for those who want to explore a particular area of life where they are holding themselves back or craving extra support.

WHAT TO BRING: 

  • A notebook/journal and something to write with
  • Your yoga mat
  • An open heart

CAN'T SWING THE COST? 
If you've been thinking about joining us this weekend but can't swing the cost, that's no problem. At this point, I would just love to support as many folks as possible. E-mail me contact@bewith.org and let me know you want to access sliding scale pricing and we'll make it happen!

The Be With Workshop was a gift! I’m not used to investing time or even money in myself this way, but I’ve been drawn to Barbara and her energy in such a way that I couldn’t miss the workshop. The two-day experience was wildly enriching because, in as fun as meeting people through technology is, it doesn’t compare to the magic of connecting with like-minded women to have deep, meaningful conversations in person. Barbara created a space that felt safe to really be with ourselves and each other. Instead of endlessly trying to fix the situation that causes me pain, I’m learning to ask what support do I need to be with this? Poof, magic.

The space with Barbara felt warm and safe. I came to the workshop not knowing anyone, and I left feeling so emotionally connected and supported. Barbara is a true healer, and her insight, wisdom, and grace left such a profound impact on my healing heart. This workshop is a true gem for anyone looking for connection, self forgiveness and connection”

PERMISSION SLIP: AN URBAN RETREAT

PERMISSION SLIP: AN URBAN RETREAT

What would it feel like to give yourself permission?

Permission to pause and breathe. To meet your needs without feeling guilty or indulgent. To let yourself be truly seen. To stop worrying about being “not enough” or “too much.” 

Can you imagine what it feel like to cast off self-criticism, self-doubt, and over-thinking? What would be possible if you showed up as your fullest, brightest, boldest self, more of the time? 

Join Art Therapist Or Har-Gil and coach Barbara Erochina for a day of giving yourself permission to show up for yourself, bravely and honestly. 

You’ll be part of an intimate group of driven, inspiring women, ready to give themselves the kindness and love they give everyone else. 

You’ll experience: 

  • Yin Yoga to get you grounded and in your body 
  • Art Therapy to help you connect with your intuition and break the cycle of overthinking
  • Coaching to help you gently cast off your habits of self-criticism and foster a kinder relationship with yourself 
  • Nourishing lunch and snacks
  • A gift bag with a mini-deck of Be With: Cards for Self-Care and other goodies!

All in a gorgeous, light-filled space with a group of other amazing women. 

This retreat is for you if you’re: 

  • A recovering people pleaser or perfectionist (just like us!)
  • A driven woman who compulsively over-delivers, while never feeling enough
  • Fed up with empty personal development programs that promise to “fix you” in 7 easy steps 
  • Ready to get to the heart of what’s holding you back so you can move forward 

"The experience was invaluable. Or and Barbara created a safe and supportive space for us to fully engage with the material and express ourselves. Highly recommend! Come with an open mind and heart." - Permission Slip Retreat Participant

**The retreat is open to all who are woman-identified, including trans, cis, and non-binary folks.
