Why Soul Restoration?

DSC_0144

I love to teach Soul Restoration.  There are so many reasons why I love to teach this material.  The number one reason that I feel called to continue teaching this course is that of the light and love that I see shining in the eyes of the women who have gone through the curriculum that is shining brighter and deeper than it was when we began.  Through the connections I’ve made in Soul Restoration workshops my belief in Sisterhood across the world has multiplied and intensified.  There is so much love, power, and beauty all over the world.

Does that mean that your life has to be in a really sad place in order to reap the benefits of this course?  NO!  I believe that you already have inside of you every single thing that is good and that you need to be successful and to move forward in your beautiful adventure.  I also know that as we are on our journey through life that experiences and expectations press upon us, sometimes so intensely that we can get mixed up in thinking that we need something outside of us to bring us joy or to make us valuable.

This work has brought me joy and hope when I’ve spent time in dark places with pain and hurt washing over me like strong waves.  This work has also brought me love and light when I’m experiencing great seasons where I feel like I am learning and growing.  Through Soul Restoration I love to witness other re-discovering the strength inside of them that has been buried and worn down.  The original you is still in there and it is time to restore back to who you have always been.

I’ve had friends who joined my classes thinking that it’s an artsty-craftsy weekly get together.  While there is a small amount of creative work that we do (with the option to do much more at home, and I hope you will because it is fun), the aim is to spend time in deep reflection, have active conversations in a safe place, and connect to other wonderful women.  You will experience a guided meditation, challenging questions, uplifting experiences, soul deep commitments to yourself, and a lot of encouragement to journal about your emotions and experiences.  I will facilitate the class in real time each week, whether we are meeting online or in person.     I hope you join me!

What is Soul Restoration, Anyway?

Emily & Melody Ross: 2011

Soul Restoration is a course develped by Melody Ross and made popular at Brave Girl Camp.  Here is what Brave Girls Club has to say about it:

“Soul Restoration is a method of helping each woman become reacquainted with her deepest self by remembering and reuniting with her inner “Truth-teller”. She will be helped to discern truth from lies that hold her back and make her feel like less than she is… to remember her dreams, her potential, her gifts and talents, all the possibilities and unique answers for her life (because it is different for everyone). This curriculum is intended to enable each woman to find and the keep the bravery she needs to stay joyfully true to her own path.

This class has been proven to be an effective and enjoyable process that helps every woman to really think about and hear her own soul again… to help her remember what brings her the most joy, to know of and remember all of the things she is good at and that make her heart sing…to get back on track and to unleash the courage and motivation to stay on track… to reunite with her soul.

Soulful living requires bravery…and bravery helps put aside voices that are confusing, judgmental and opinionated. The Soul Restoration Curriculum is intended to continue long after the course is completed… giving each woman a set of skills and beautiful tools that will carry her throughout her life.”

I can only speak for my own experience with Soul Restoration.  When I went through the curriculum for the first time I was at a time in my life where I was very broken.  I needed to keep going and wasn’t sure how I was going to do that.

What I found was a wonderful path for me to walk, reminders to get myself back in line with my truth teller (for me this is Father in Heaven) and peace.  I’ve also found life long soul sisters, the freedom to unleash my inner artist, and love unbounded.  I believe you will find the same.
