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 Marissa from Ampersand Coaching to bring this event series to the Pittsburgh community.

The Be With Workshop | Saturday, July 28, 6-9pm

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 | Sunday, July 29, 6-9pm

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.

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 and let me know you want to access sliding scale pricing and we'll make it happen!

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”
