Instead of having a list of goals for the new year, how would it feel to have a framework for care and support?

Are you done with 2022 already?

Are you wanting to put up an away message in your inbox that says “You’ll hear from me sometime in January”? Is your to-do list longer than what fits on your calendar and beyond what your capacity can hold? Are you wanting something different in the new year? Are you wanting a chance to exhale and just be for a hot minute?

Short term survival techniques make poor long-term solutions.

If 2022 was about doubling down on control, putting your head down, and doing everything asked of you perfectly with a smile while you slowly died inside, let’s propose something different for the future. Tight-fisted control doesn’t work over time. It simply becomes a chronic stressor that wears down the brain and body.

Sustainability is the key working and living a life that is supportive and nourishing, rather than extractive and depleting.

What if I told you that:

  • Anchoring in concepts can work both for and against us. By creating a supportive tangible framework to anchor to, we can help shift behavior toward the way we want to be in the world.
  • Stress is not inherently bad – when we create it in the right amounts, we create shifts just like lifting weights over time slowly builds strength.
  • Smaller is better – if you’re used to forcing or pushing yourself through challenge, you can learn a better way.

90% of the participants surveyed in a recent workshop I ran said what I teach is immediately implementable (the other 10% said they could see it being implemented within a few days). That’s the kind of vibe we’ll be holding here as well.

Join us for Foundations on Saturday December 17th at 8:30am PT / 11:30am ET

We’ll spend 90 minutes together creating a framework for the upcoming season that is supportive and challenging in just the right amounts.

This is not a goal-setting session.

This is a reflective and clarifying workshop to create a foundational framework that supports your goals.

Think of it as attending to the boat you travel through your day with. Things outside and around you can get chaotic and stormy. But when your boat is supported and solid, when your foundation is trustworthy, you can focus on sailing toward your next destination instead of spending your time bailing water and fearing the bow will crack in half.

Abigail Rose Clarke, founder of the The Embodied Life Method™ and author of an upcoming book with North Atlantic Books will kick off this experience with her Widening Time™ practice. If you’ve ever felt like your day was a treadmill set permanently to “sprint” you will love her methodology.

Once your body and mind are present, we’ll create a framework for the upcoming season using the Fortitude & Flow® Process to explore these elements:

  • People
  • Rest
  • Movement
  • Creativity
  • Nourishment
  • Decisions
  • Attention
  • Pruning

We’ll shine a light on what works well for you and what you’ve been avoiding. I’ll share some of the tools that I personally use to stay on track. 

When you leave the event, you’ll have a tangible framework and a worksheet to help you live into what you imagine in 2023. You’ll have a supportive foundation for all of your other audacious goals and desires.

You’ll be able to confidently answer:

  • How do you know when you’re supported?
  • How do you know when you’re not supported?
  • What action steps are possible for you to take when you want to shift from unsupported to supported?

Come prepared to be, think, write, reflect, and build your history forward.

This experience will be recorded and available for those that register until January 1st, 2023.


How do I know if this is for me?

If you’re feeling overwhelmed or exhausted or not quite sure how to get off the hamster wheel feeling you continuously find yourself on, this workshop is for you. If you’re concerned that you’re getting a bit crispy around the edges, you’ll want to learn this framework. If you’re excited about the upcoming season and know how to best support yourself (and get support) through challenging times, you may not need this workshop but you may really enjoy it and get some good ideas to add to what’s already working.

About Audrey Holst

Audrey Holst works with ambitious high performers to identify and address their pre-burnout and toxic perfectionism so they can transform and fully enjoy their careers and lives.

She’s the creator of the Perfectionist Archetypes™ and founder of the Fortitude & Flow® Process which fuses mindful and embodied practices to create sustainable transformation. Audrey has over 16 years of training practicing yoga, functional movement, and meditation as well as 14 years of experience teaching therapeutic hatha yoga as a certified Bikram Yoga instructor. She graduated from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) in 2014 and has worked with individuals, teams, and organizations for the past 8 years as a Certified Professional Coach. She’s an interpersonal meditation trained facilitator and continues to hone her skills to benefit clients.

Audrey’s upcoming book, You’re Not Perfect — And Here’s How to Deal With That, goes beyond mindset and teaches people how to connect to the unique essence of who they are. Her 1:1 work with clients in Emerge reconnects and heals their relationships with their brains and bodies through intensive support and custom-designed practices. Her corporate engagements support teams and culture while offering individual insights and ongoing micro-learning opportunities.

Audrey’s work pushes back on the spiritual bypassing and mindset-is-everything narrative that is rampant in the coaching and wellness industry. Perfectionism is a survival mechanism that keeps people from reclaiming their energy and agency. It’s time for something new.

About Abigail Rose Clarke

Abigail Rose Clarke knows we can use the inherent wisdom of our bodies to be in direct conversation with our creativity and our aliveness. When we do that, we dismantle oppressive systems and build a future that is lush and generative and deeply relational.

Using strategic, somatic practices, she created The Embodied Life Method™, founded in 2017.  Tested over years of teaching at international conferences and with organizations and individuals throughout Canada, the US, and Mexico, this work creates lasting change in our personal and professional lives, rippling out from individual to systemic change. By helping people truly inhabit their own skin and blood and guts and bones The Embodied Life Method™ offers a way to re-enter into true relationship with the world, one that centers creativity not as a means to production and commerce, but instead, that centers creativity as a way to be in meaningful conversation with the world, and with ourselves.

Abigail does not teach that embodiment always feels good, because it doesn’t. Her work prioritizes exploration over assumed results, because the body is always adaptable and always adapting. Our creative efforts should do the same, and they can, when we are in relationship with our own bodies.

In a world of such rapid change, Abigail teaches embodiment as a practice and a responsibility. As the world changes so dramatically we are tasked with the enormous responsibility of remaining present to the world as it is, which requires we remain present to ourselves as we are. From here, the way forward becomes possible.

Her work is enormously influenced by her study and practice of Embodyoga® of which she is a senior teacher, as well as her background in kinesiology and psychology.
