TRAUMA WORK: Is Community the Missing Piece? with Heart Lab Graduates Lauren Sessa + Jackie ChuangSep 08, 2021
It’s official, the doors to The Heart Lab are open for one last time in 2021. I could sit here and chatter at you about what it’s all about, but honestly, these two women say it better than I can. Because they’ve felt the transformations that happen 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.
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 from sharing their own stories and witnessing each other in our weekly group coaching ceremonies.

- The burnout cycle of over-giving and validation
