Limits and Boundaries:
Embodied Experiences in Owning Your Worth
the 4-week online course
Why are social interactions so overwhelming for me?
Why do I keep getting sick?
Why don't people take me seriously?
Why don’t I feel comfortable in my own skin?
Why don't the words come out at the right time—and only later do I think of the perfect response?
Limits and Boundaries is for you if you experience:
confusion around boundaries in work and life
feeling at a loss for words when things aren't going your way
taking everything personally (from someone else’s social media post to a friend’s disappointment)
feeling like you need to give more than you're available for
a lot of good ideas but you don't move forward
dread around the holidays or social gatherings
repeated push-back when you say no
promising more than is actually fair to you
many aha moments or insights but nothing really changes
always being the "bigger person" (ignoring what you’re actually feeling)
Some of the things that we think of as physical problems (like autoimmune diseases, BV, or yeast infections) are our bodies ways of protecting us. If we don't have means of self-protection, our bodies will do it for us.
If you can't set limits, your body will set them for you.
Or, instead of working with healthy boundaries, we hide out in our internal world: we don't date, we don't watch the news, and we don’t dare change our situations, because we know subconsciously that changing things … means we'd have to create and maintain boundaries. And for many of us, that’s frightening. Does having boundaries mean we rupture connection?
In this course, you’ll learn to feel what’s truly yours, and what belongs to others.
And how to hold your ground.
You’ll learn to set limits and boundaries in your own life so that you have more left over to know and express yourself, thrive in what you do, and create meaningful, real connection.
Our bodies are speaking louder than all of our frameworks, philosophies, and sophisticated ideas. So how do we work with our bodies to change the story?
In Limits and Boundaries, you’ll learn to:
Understand your default response and how to rewire it
Discover your hooks and triggers, and practice a plan for getting free of them
Express convincing yes'es and no's
Identify your bottom lines and communicate them with strength and clarity
What are the truths you’re holding back because you think you know what the other person’s reaction will be?
What are your desires that are your desires ALONE?
How do you negotiate sovereign identity and interdependence?
Where are the places where you're using words like community and tribe as a way to avoid your own success, your own self-parenting, your own upliftment? In Australia they call it tall poppy syndrome—the ways we don't want to stick out from the crowd, because doing so expresses a boundary in itself. When we stay small to appease others, we don't get fully expressed or reach our potential.
You may understand that intellectually, but from the inside, are you making the choices that create that success and thriving, with ease? If not, this course will shore up your boundaries and allow you to make choices from a deep knowing, so that you can create the life you desire.

How is this course different from Activate Your Inner Jaguar?
This course has less theory and even more embodied practice than Jaguar. It's a great complement to Jaguar for those who want more foundational material on the theme of boundary strengthening, sexual autonomy and differentiation. We zoom-in on one piece of Jaguar. Jaguar covers major principles of the nervous system, and this course is about one major aspect of selfhood.
Our culture is currently in this phase of differentiation—this course gives us the tools to differentiate gracefully. Differentiation requires ego strengthening. A lot of spiritual practice asks us to break down our ego conditioning- however many of did not start out with something strong to break down which can lead to further fragmentation, and a feeling of displacement.
Differentiation is the concept of knowing and owning what’s yours. It's what allows us not to take everything personally- to know what is our part and what is not. Differentiation allows you to tolerate conflict. You can stand in your truth even if it’s different than what others around you believe, without having to necessarily needing to reject them. You can disagree with someone and go on with your day. Then you can do your own work in the world with ease, and feel comfortable in your own skin.
What if I can't join the live webinars?
No problem at all. Very few people are able to come to each live webinar (and some can’t attend any live, because of work and other commitments). The videos in this course are meant to be watched sometime during the week—you'll get a replay of each video within 24 hours of the live call. You'll receive information and experiential exercises in each video that you can work with all week.
How much time will I spend on course materials each week?
The classes will be approximately 90 minutes long, and we'll give you some experiential exercises to incorporate into your everyday life and interactions during the week.
Join me for the first round of Limits and Boundaries at the special first-round price of $297.
I created this course because there is a deep need in our culture for differentiation, and for being able to hold our ground with compassion—especially toward ourselves. We can maintain connection and renegotiate trauma through setting our own clear boundaries. Join this class for a deeply embodied education and real-life tools in holding your ground and owning your worth.
