How to Let Go

Hello <<First Name>>,

With 2015 upon us, now is a good time to look at what you're grateful for and that which you want to be rid of. Shedding the negative stuff that you are hanging on to allows room for more of the good stuff to come in.

In addition to gratitude-generating activities at our recent vision board workshop we ceremoniously let go of negativity by writing resentments, disappointments, mistakes and fears on helium balloons and then releasing the balloons. Check out a video of the balloon release here.

How do you plan to let go of negative emotions that you are hanging on to?

On Monday nights we are holding a group for Female Fear Fighters.

If you would like to reserve your spot in the group, please click HERE and you will be taken to the payment page for the upcoming session. 

What is the Female Fear Fighters (FFF) group about?

It is a group for women looking to face their fears and move past them by tackling them head-on through a multiple-week coaching course. FFF helps women bust through fears (from public speaking, to applying for a new job, to forming an intimate relationship) that are holding them back from living a life they love. FFF serves as an accountability group for its members.

The group meets every other week from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at 80 East 11th Street, Suite 517 (between University Place and Broadway), with the first session of 2015 on Jan. 5. It is an open-ended group and costs $40 per session.

See what one current FFF member said about the group:

"Don't be held back any longer. I've taken Lauren's Female Fear Fighters series of workshops twice now, and it's helped me immeasurably. I can point to it in both instances as what has pushed me to the next level of action and willingness to do scary but extraordinary things. It's brilliant, and it's practical. 

In a safe, supportive environment, with like-minded, like-missioned women, Lauren's incisive exercises get straight to the core of what's holding us back. She then gives us various cognitive tools and processes to defang and reframe those unproductive thoughts, which in turn gives us the clarity and freedom to identify and commit to small but concrete, manageable actions to move past those (now not-quite-as-paralyzing) fears. 

Being accountable to (and more importantly, having the loving support of) my Female Fear Fighters group has enabled me to actually take action, follow through, and get moving on things I've always wanted to do but but off because of fear for way too long. It's simple, but somehow, with Lauren's incisiveness and guidance combined with the group's support, it's magic. I went from zero to near-hero (it's a process) in the areas of dating and pursuing my dream career in a surprisingly short amount of time due to Lauren's supportive, smart and pragmatic coaching in these workshops. I can't say enough about it. If you're ready and willing, Lauren and your fellow Female Fear Fighters will get you where you once only dreamed you could be, one manageable, doable action at a time. It's transformative. Thank you, Lauren!"
