This work is all about you taking the concepts and ideas I teach throughout the year and applying them to the life you’re already living (because most of us don’t have time to chuck it all and move to Greece for a year!) while also treating the year as a grand adventure!
Grown-Up Gap Year includes:
+ a monthly live teaching wherein we examine all the facets of how you can infuse these principles into your life.
Here’s what we’ll be focusing on each month:
October: Radical Self-Belief
November: Radical Clarity
December: Radical Delight
January: Radical Adventure
February: Radical Grounding
March: Radical Acceptance
April: Radical Creativity
May: Radical Expansion
June: Radical Intuition
July: Radical Integrity
August: Radical Excellence
September: Radical Self-Belief
(And yes! We start and end with radical self-belief because that’s what allllll this is rooted in, and…oh, what a difference a year makes!)
+ monthly Q+A calls where you can ask me anything about what’s standing in your way, holding you back, or showing up for you. (We can also discuss strategy, mindset, tools, and resources.) We might talk about that story you just can’t quite shift, if it’s okay for you to quit Twitter (YES!), and how to deepen your faith all on one call.
+ twice-monthly drop-in Office Hours sessions juuuuuuust in case you need a little extra support on something that’s showing up for you. Get in, get what you need, and get back out into your life!
+ a whole ding-dang kit that I mail to your house (yes! even internationally!) that includes Grown-Up Gap Year Cheat Sheets, your very own journal to keep all those learnings in one place, custom merch, and a merit badge tracker so you can track all those rad things you’re doing that are rightontheotherside of your comfort zone!
+ a weekly journal prompt delivered straight to your inbox to help you start the week right — by checking in with yourself. Because making a habit out of that is key to knowing what you want.
+ quarterly co-working sessions so you can actually do all those things you’re so very good at putting off! And you’ll have me working alongside you in real-time in case you hit any snags or roadblocks along the way or need feedback on what you’re working on!
…and did you notice that an online community is conspicuously absent from this list? Because if you’re on a Gap Year adventure, I want you out in your world, not sitting on FB awaiting a reply…
We start October 1, 2021, and the investment is $250/month for 12 months (with a pay-in-full option available). Admission is by application only, and you can sign up here to get priority access when they open as well as a special early-bird discount!
Nope! And that’s what makes this program so magical! You get to infuse Big Gap Year Energy into all your days, even as they are! (It’s kind of the best!) (Seriously. I’m not really teaching about money, sex, and freedom, but I kinda am.)
Which means that you’ll keep going to work (but you’ll definitely use all the PTO you can!), taking care of your “adult” responsibilities (because those kids need to be fed for everyone’s sake!), and tending to your own needs (no more all-nighters, thank you very much!) with an invitation to shift how you show up to everything you do.
(The big secret is that this shift actually allows you to both have more fun but also become even more creatively connected and powerful in your world! So while it may feel selfish and indulgent at first, give me time!)
This is the part where you want me to bullet point out all the tangible things you’re going to get from your year with me.
But unfortunately, I can’t. Well, actually, I won’t. Here’s why:
We think we know what we want. We think we know what a life well-lived is supposed to look like on paper. And we’ve been taught that if we just work hard enough at fixing all the things we don’t like about ourselves, we’ll finally get to the holy grail place of…what?…enoughness? Rest? Expansion? Freedom? Radiant Technicolor?
Yeeeeeeeeah. I hate to say it (actually I don’t!) but we’ve all been fed so many lies. Some by people who directly profit off of us hating ourselves and some whose motives are good, but misguided.
And, in a different version of this world, this is where I tell you the exact bullet points you’ll get from this experience and hit your pain points a little harder before promising you the moon, sun, and stars.
But here’s what I propose instead: Come into the experience paying full attention to your longings. Give them space to grow, instead of deciding that now’s not a good time. And then be willing to be surprised.
Let yourself dig deeper into what you want to find the nuance and the richness. Put your hands in the proverbial soil to see what else is possible when you dive under the surface of all the things you’ve been working so hard to get done.
Because success here might mean finally getting your book done. But it might also mean spending so much time in your backyard reading. Either way, it’s about you showing up to each moment rooted in purpose. In presence. In radical self-belief. And taking action from that place rather than the frantic hamster wheel of never being, doing, or saying enough.
Your grown-up gap year could involve buying a house in the neighborhood you’ve been stalking on Zillow. But maybe absolutely nothing in your external life changes at all. Because your interior landscape is actually what we want to look at (and is the foundation for all that bold, inspired action you’re wanting to take!).
Maybe, as a byproduct of this year, your biz blows up. But maybe what actually happens is that you stop pushing to make your content go viral because you’re able to unhook from the belief that that’s what is necessary in order for you to be happy, successful, and worthy.
I know!! I wish I could bring you in right now, but, alas, we don’t start this adventure until October! HOWEVER!! I do have a few things up my sleeve, including an early-bird discount and special set-your-foundation-before-we-start bonus, so make sure you’re signed up for the waitlist to get first dibs at the limited spots and access to that discount and bonus. (All the early-access details will be coming in July!)
Also! I cannot wait to spend this year with you.
