Birthing a Spirit-Led Business Practicum

Birthing a Spirit-led Business Practicum

Aligning with the seasons for creative flow, and ease and grace in productivity.

Birthing a spirit-led business

A Spirit-led Business is not ‘business as usual.’ It requires us to align ourselves to something bigger than ourselves. One of them is working with the seasons and their deeper meaning to help us make the best from the our energies and creative spark.

The intention of each of these Practicum meetings is two-fold:

  • Speak to the archetypal themes of the heroic journey of each season, and how it relates to the unfolding and thriving of our business.
  • Create a co-working space where can we help you with the flow of birthing your business.

Each meeting is a mixture of learning and practical application to your business needs. The collaboration formed in also gives you a sense of community. We are not alone on this journey.
