Standing Still Collective
A monthly gathering for people that want to do life differently.
We live in trying times.
But a lot of us believe in change for the better. And we want to find calm and peace in our lives even when the world feels like it’s on fire.
Can feel it in your bones? The opportunity to stop pushing? The chance to stop forcing?
It’s time to stand still. Join us?
The Standing Still Collective is a year-long monthly virtual gathering for people that want to live in a world that is nurturing, celebrates self-care and collective hope, and believes in healing and change.
Each new moon in 2020, you, me, and a powerful group of humans will come together to celebrate and honor their intentions. You’ll strengthen your immune system through movement, meditation and visualization. You’ll envision the future you want to create. You’ll create small and doable actions to release the stress and the past and invite in your desires and your future.
Because we are in completely new and uncertain territory right now, I have transitioned the $37 monthly membership of this group to a pay-what-you-want price. Will you join us at a rate that feels good for you?
What the Standing Still Collective means to its members:
“It has been an anchor for me. A night for myself. A reminder in between sessions to take time (and that it is ok to take time) for stillness, quiet, calm, and my priorities. I receive so much knowledge and inspiration from Audrey as the leader, and I love connecting with the others and hearing we are all experiencing and working on similar things.”
Hi, I’m Audrey, and I’ll be your guide.
The Standing Still Collective is your sacred space to support and be supported, offer presence and receive it, and connect with your deep inner knowing, and be surrounded by a group that cheers on your highest good month after month.
This group is grounded in my strong belief that connection is one of the most healing experiences we can have as humans. Showing up for ourselves, showing up for others, and declaring our truth is what is going to change not only us but the world around us. We are being called to do something different, to make an impact, in a way that is different from the status quo.
I believe deeply in this vision and I believe deeply in the people that are here for it.
What people say about Standing Still:
“I just wanted to reach out and let you know how much I enjoyed Standing Still!
… I have been trying all of the meditation apps and mindfulness has been my main focus for a couple months now, so this whole thing literally felt perfect for me. While I hoped to have the ability to maintain peace amongst chaos, I’m still very much in the place of figuring out what it is that I do really want in life, and this process helped me realize that I can gain those insights and clarity through such exercises as well.
I also wanted to tell you that you are great at this! Something like this can often seem awkward and difficult to follow but you made it seem totally cool and easy! You definitely have a gift for this and I thank you so much for sharing it with me over this last week.”
I’ve received hand-written letters of gratitude and accounts of sharing meditation and movement techniques with family. Standing Still is not just for you, it’s also for everyone your life touches.
If you have hopes for doing this year differently, I support you. If you want to do things your way, if you want to create more space, if you want to honor your body and your capacity and your needs, I applaud you.
How is this going to work?
Each month we’ll meet on the new moon for 60 minutes on Zoom to do a gentle movement routine to release stress and stuckness and allow space for energy. I’ll offer some tools to help soothe and stimulate the nervous system. After letting our systems settle, we’ll go through a connective meditation and visualization to tap into our inner knowing. Once we’re plugged in, we’ll each identify what we want to put less energy toward and release and put more energy toward and have more of and create a small and doable step to move us forward. To close, you’ll create a personal permission slip that you can use for your highest good.
A few days before each session, you’ll receive an email with prompts to reflect on your past month and plan for your next month so you have time to think about what you need and want and create a fresh vision for who you are and who you are becoming.
On the full moon, I’ll send a gentle check-in with some practices to help you stay connected.
It’s important to continuously update your intentions as your life and circumstances shift. Some months you may make huge strides and feel like a superhero. Other months you may be psyched to brush your teeth each day. This monthly practice will ensure that you recommit to yourself and your desires every single month in a way that works for you, is doable, and is supported by a community of like-minded folks.
What kind of goals do people in this group set?
We fully support and cheer lead everyone’s individual desires. Here are a few of the small and doable actions members have shared.
- Letting go of rigid workout schedules to carve a new identity
- Letting go of the need to know if something is the “perfect” next step
- Saying no to obligations that aren’t in alignment
- Letting go of the need to make other people happy
- Looking in the mirror daily and saying “I love you and you are enough”
- Setting boundaries around work and personal time
- Being compassionate and taking time to understand and research a new diagnosis
- Spending 5 minutes a day in meditation
- Letting go of the need to fix other people’s problems
- Setting boundaries in work environments that create chronic stress
Do these types of goals resonate with the way you want to move through the world?
Why the new moon?
Let’s be honest, the full moon gets a lot of attention. It’s big, it’s bright, it’s flashy, it’s got a reputation for intensity.
But we’re not here for the usual. We’re not here for what’s popular. We’re here for what actually WORKS which is why the new moon is the perfect time to meet.
The new moon is a hidden gift. It supports what we are doing. Our inward focus. Our releasing of things that no longer serve us. Our quiet, not flashy, calm, not intense, but nonetheless powerful and consistent journey through the year. The new moon is the perfect time to start something new, open yourself up to possibility, and release the things that didn’t work during the prior lunar cycle.
These are the dates and times we are gathering. Please note that we will meet at 7pm EST on Sundays and 9pm EST on weeknights. If you are unable to attend the session live, each session will be recorded and available until the next month’s session:

What’s not included:
This collective does not include specific individual support. If you are in need of additional guidance and support in-between sessions, I offer one-on-one support through my Fortification Intensive and ongoing coaching and consulting support.
I like the idea but I’m a total introvert and it freaks me out to think about talking in front of a group of strangers.
Totally cool! You can participate at whatever level you feel comfortable. People in the past have chosen to join without video, or just showed up and did their thing without talking out loud or even chatting in the chat box. There is no pressure to be anyone other than yourself at whatever level you feel comfortable.
Can I join after January?
Definitely! You can sign up at any point during the year and we will fold you into the mix seamlessly.
I want to join but I’m financially strapped right now.
I’ve got you. This group is for everyone. Click here to join at a price that feels good and is doable for you. Truly.
Can I attend 1 session at a time?
Nope! The intention of this group is to create an energy throughout the year that supports everyone that shows up. This requires a commitment from everyone involved.
