Healing Trauma within Community with Lauren Sessa + Jackie ChuangFeb 09, 2021
I’ve said over and over again that there’s something magical that happens when a community of aligned women come together. Gathering in Circles is something that our feminine ancestors knew how to do, but in our modern world, these opportunities to gather and truly open up and reveal ourselves is rare. When we gather in a container rooted in the power of our femininity, it is not to create a hierarchy or competition, it is simply to witness, to hold and to nurture one another so we can each uncover our own sovereign strength.
I’m doing something I’ve never done before. I’ve invited some guests who feel incredibly near and dear to my heart. Jackie Chuang and Lauren Sessa are graduates of the 2020 Circle of The Heart Lab and they are here to share what they learned from the program, but most importantly, they are here to share what they learned as they witnessed each other in our weekly group sessions.
I believe Rumi said it best: “We’re all just walking each other home.”

Lauren Sessa has spent the last 20 years in the corporate world as a Customer Success Leader. In 2018, feeling wildly unfulfilled despite her career success, she experienced a shift that would impact the trajectory of her life. While she moves through her own journey of healing and rediscovery, she is intent to dedicate her creative efforts to helping others experience this illuminating shift for themselves.

I facilitate conversations through 1:1 coaching and various community offerings to guide curious humans to remember their True Self - who they are beyond the conditioning, the "shoulds", the trauma stories + the overriding of desires. If you need permission to step into the wholeness of your emotions and Being, let me show you that you’ve been the one holding the pen.
