FAQ

A YEAR OF SHE

Q: Who is A Year of SHE for?

Q: How much yoga and meditation practice do I need?

A: The practices are geared for all levels– from beginners to advanced practitioners.

Q: How much time do I need to set aside for this program?

A: In A Year of SHE, I recommend about 5-10 minutes each morning for reading that day’s lesson from a Course in Miracles. The monthly yoga class is 30-60 minutes. The monthly meditation is 15-30 minutes. The monthly Dakini’s Den & Q and A is 90 minutes. Anything additional you want to do (more yoga, meditation, psychological healing modules, guest teacher interviews) would be extra.

Q: How many women are in A Year of SHE?

A: Each year it differs, but the size in A Year of SHE (formerly The Red Tent and the SHE School) has ranged from 70-110 women in the past.

Q: What if I’m not religious? Or: What if I am religious? Will A Course in Miracles work for me?

A: Yes– this a non-religious, non-dogmatic text containing essential spiritual principles that are present in all of the world’s great spiritual traditions. This text is not required, it’s optional. If there’s another text from your faith that you feel drawn to, but all means, use that instead! A course in miracles iw what we’ll be moving together with as a group, though.

Q: Do you have a sample of A Year of SHE looks and feels like?

A: Yes (click to open or download):

Q: How much time do I need to set aside for this program?

A: In the SHE Leadership Circle, you’ll have 3 1-hour sessions with me, spread out over 6 months. We’ll have one 90 minute group mastermind call each month. You’ll have one phone meeting with your accountability partner each month (you two will organize that and decide on the length). Then, we have three 4-hour “Creation Days,” every other month. Any additional time you want to spend interacting in the mastermind Facebook group, reading that month’s book, or working on your project, is entirely up to you.

Q: How many women are in The SHE Leadership Circle?

A: We had 8 women in 2018 and have room for up to 20.

 

Q: How much does it cost?

A: The SHE Leadership Circle is by application only. Apply here. Once you fill out the application, you and Sara will schedule a good time to talk. If it feels like a good fit for you both, you’ll take the next steps from there. (There’s a generous financial discount when you join during early registration)

Q: What if I don’t really have a business yet. Can I still the SHE Leadership Circle?

A: Yes, you can come with an idea and use our 6-months together as a time to grow and develop that with support, feedback, and accountability from me and the mastermind group.

 

Q: What if my business is already really developed. Will the SHE Leadership Circle still help me?

A: Yes, you can use these 6-months to fine-tune some aspect of your career. Maybe you want to organize a retreat, create an online course, or write a book proposal. You could choose any of those things as your project to focus during this program.

Q: What kind of women have been in the SHE Leadership Circle in the past?

A: We’ve had a lawyer who’s also an author and course leader who supports women with returning to work after having a baby, a woman who works with law firms on cultivating women’s leadership, a neurologist who integrates yoga and meditation into her practice, a mother of a special needs child who opened a women’s center in her home, a single mother who created an online church to disseminate ancient wisdom, a nurse who also support women to be sovereign as they become “silver,” and more.

 

Q: How is the SHE Leadership Circle different from other masterminds?

A: This is rooted in spiritual practice. It’s not about fancy marketing gimmicks and chasing the next bright and shiny object. It’s about creating a career of integrity, that is an expression of your god-given gifts and endures over time, allowing you to become an incredible woman in the process. It also empowers you to connect with the leader within you– your inner wisdom–so that you can trust it in making important decisions about your life and career.

Q: How do I join the SHE Leadership Circle?

A: Fill out application and schedule time for an interview with me to see if we’re a good fit for one another.

 

Both Programs:

Q: I’m not sure I can join this year. Will you be offering these program again next year?

A: There’s a good chance I will; but the honest answer is: I have no idea.

.

Q: What if I can’t make the calls live?

A: We’ll send out the recording via email a couple of hours after the call. We’ll also store in our online learning platform, Ruzuku, for you to listen to or download them at your convenience.

 

Q: Will I still receive benefit from this if I can’t attend the calls live?

A: Absolutely. You can pre-submit your questions and I will answer them on the call for you.  Most women aren’t able to attend live, but they enjoy listening later and still receive all the benefit. You can interact on the Facebook group to still have community interaction.

.

Q: What if I don’t like Facebook?

A: No problem– the group there is completely optional. Some women have found that it works better for them to set up a “dummy” Facebook account, just to interact with this group– without all the other distractions that Facebook can bring.

 

Q: Can I test it out before committing? Do you have a trial period?

A: No. We do not offer any trial periods.

Q: I don’t live in the U.S. Will these programs still work for me?

A: Yes!. We welcome women from all over the world and vary the times of our live gathering to accommodate different time zones.

 

Q: Do you offer any scholarships?

A: We offer a few scholarships to A Year of SHE for women in great financial need. These are by application only. Email us to request an application.

Scholarship applicants are not eligible for early registration gifts, and they are not available for the SHE Leadership Circle.

.

Q: Can I register later on in the year?

A: We only open registration once a year. For 10 days in the fall, and then in the month of January. After that, our container is sealed for a transformative journey.

 

Q: What’s the refund policy?

A: You can read our Terms & Conditions here.

Q: I’m a bit of a technophobe. I’m not sure if online learning is really my thing!

A: You absolutely don’t need to be a computer whiz to get the most out of these programs.We try to keep things as simple as possible, and our community mentors are available to help if you get stuck.

 

Q: I read Sara’s books The Way of the Happy Woman and/or The Book of SHE, and loved them. Would this program be an appropriate next step?

A: Absolutely. A Year of SHE is where you learn to LIVE these practices, to embody them more deeply, and to apply them to every area of your life.

Q: I’m familiar with your work, and have participated in your courses before. Will this program include enough new material to make it worth my while?

A: Yes. This is lifelong learning. A Year of SHE will meet and support you, exactly where you are. To keep the flame of my own creative passion burning, I’m always growing and changing, and sharing my life lessons with you along the way. I’m always adding and updating material so reflect my recent research, studies, and insight.

 

Q: Do I really deserve this? Can I really justify investing in myself in this way? Am I being selfish, spoiled, and self-indulgent?

A: Let’s find out, together. I don’t have the answers to these questions, but you do.

Check in with your body: How does the idea of participating in these programs feel in your body? Grounded and relaxed? Good but fluttering at the thought of the unknown? Is there some excitement in that flutter? Those are bodily signs of “YES.”

Investigate where you skepticism is coming from: Is your intuition having doubts you need to listen to? Or are your Inner Critic, Skeptic, Perfectionist, or Patriarch chiming in?

Do these voices tell you you’re not good enough, you don’t deserve it, you don’t have the time, or that the circumstances aren’t EXACTLY right? If you have particular fears or worries, don’t shove them aside. Let them in. Write them down. Talk about them with someone.

Bring them into the light and see what they’re really about. Are you afraid to grow? To change? What are you really afraid of? Are these fears wise signals that you want to heed? Or are they holding you back from what you truly want?

Inquire: If you knew you couldn’t fail at this, that you’d have fun and evolve and expand  as a result of your effort and participation— what would you do? What are your intentions for the coming year? What do you most long for? What matters most to you in your life? What support do you need to actualize these? Does this feel aligned?

Q: I’m feeling fear and resistance, but want to join. What should I do?

A: The bigger the commitment, and the more aligned it is with your highest Self (your SHE), the bigger the resistance will be. Honor the resistance. Listen to it. Pour it a cup of tea and chat with it.

Inside your resistance is a friend — and an important message to help you to move forward. It may be saying things like, “Who do you think you are signing up for this?!” or “You’re so selfish to even consider this.”

Don’t ignore it or judge it. Listen and honor it (this is something you’ll learn to do in great depth in A Year of SHE, to honor all of your inner voices, including your saboteurs).

Resistance shows up to try to keep us small, to keep us the way that we are, all cozy in our comfort zones. We all know that real living is just at the edge of our comfort zone. We need to enter that edge in order to grow. What is the cost of staying in your comfort zone? If you stay where you are, will that allow you to become the woman you really want to be two years from now? Five years from now?

Fear and resistance mean it’s time for you to step up. By the end of the immersion, you’ll feel much more confident with following your heart, trusting your SHE and aligning your life with Her (rather than letting your Resistance or Inner Critic run your life). Let your sacred longings— not fear or resistance— take the lead here. Let your heart make the decision to sign up. Ask: What would love do?

Q: I’m having technical trouble signing up.

A: No problem. Just email our support team at [email protected]. We are happy to help.

If you have a question you don’t see answered here, please email us here.
