Background and Why?  

Currently there are a number of reasons why it is important for womxn to focus on their self-care and learn to love themselves. Some of the research for womxn states -

  • 2 in 5 women were sufficiently physically active in 2017–18 (AIHW).
  • Financial issues remain the leading cause of stress amongst Australians with more than half of Australians identifying finances as a cause of stress.
  • females reported a higher proportion of mental or behavioural conditions (22%) than males (18%) in the National Health Survey 2017-2018 in Australia.
  • Family and financial issues were the leading cause of stress for women.
  • One in three marriages end in divorce.

These factors as well others can have an impact on the health and wellbeing of womxn, so it comes as little surprise that womxn are finding it increasingly difficult to find time to nurture their own self-care and wellbeing, so they can take time out and prioritise themselves.

And as I imagine you have heard - you cannot give what you don't have 🙂 .

Dare - 

"to be sufficiently courageous to" ~ Merriam-Webster


Love - 

"to feel love for, cherish, show love to; delight in, approve." ~ Etymonline

Currently, maybe you...

Feel like you are putting other people's needs and desires before your own?

Are trying to fit it all in or be the best you can be, however are feeling tired and run down?

Know it is time to hit the reset button on your self-care routine and know there is more to it than bubble baths?

Or even feeling a sense of powerlessness over the number of things to do?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, don't worry you are not alone!

Why not join us for Dare to Love, so you can focus on your own self-care and wellbeing!

Welcome to Dare to Love -

Online (Un)Learning Circle for Womxn...

"Dare to Love" is a 28-day Online (Un)Learning Circle for Womxn who are ready to change their relationship with themselves and start focusing, get clarity and develop self-awareness and self-care strategies in their work and life, so they can increase their energy levels, trust themselves and start to live their version of a whole-hearted life.

What Will You Learn?

In Dare to Love, you will be given the opportunity to invest the time so you can align to your mind, body, emotions and spirit. The mind work is about becoming aware of attitudes, beliefs and stories about self-care and wellbeing, the body work relates to you discovering you tuning in to your uniqueness, so you take action in alignment with your body's needs, the emotional work looks at the practices of gratitude, emotional intelligence and self-compassion and the spirit work relates to living in alignment with your purpose and present life.

Specifically you will (un)learn to -

  • take time out to reflect and focus on your self-care,
  • create your self-care vision and identify what self-care is for you (yes it is different for each of us),
  • establish sustainable habits and routines for your self-care and wellbeing,
  • focus on prioritising and identifying a range of strategies for your self-care,
  • start to reclaim your power and develop greater self-trust,
  • create your own self-care plan,
  • determine the attributes of your Inner Circle of Trust, so you can start looking for them,
  • discover any stumbling blocks and start to transform them, and
  • start taking steps towards greater self-care and wellbeing.

How does Dare to Love work?

The Dare to Love - Online (Un)Learning Circle for Womxn goes for 28 days. Essentially it is an online growth and education circle that is about supporting womxn to change their relationship with themselves by developing self-awareness, self-knowledge and self-confidence and trust. There are four main areas of Dare to Love.

Each of the four areas are outlined below...

1. Nourishing You Toolkit (individually priced @ $97).

You receive access to the toolkit as soon as you join, so you can start to transform your relationship with yourself around self-care 🙂 Currently this toolkit has 31 experiements / worksheets, 2 x templates, and 2 x research articles. You have access to the toolkit for 90 days in the (un)learning hub and you can read more about it here.

2. 1 x 60-Minute Online Circle.

We start Dare to Love with an Online Circle. You have the opportunity to attend 1 x 60-minute Online (Un)Learning Circle (24/9/22 @ 9.30am QLD time). The Circle will help you set your intention for the 28 days as well as briefly go through the 4 modules of the Nourishing You Toolkit.

3. Daily Reminders and/or Inspiration.

Each day over the 28 days, you will receive daily reminders and/or inspiration. These have been designed to support you to reconnect with your relationship with yourself, grow your confidence and take aligned action in relation to self-care.

4. Unlimited E-mail Support.

Yes I understand big groups can be useful. However, how much personalised attention do you receive? And how often do you get distracted in there and lose track of time? With unlimited e-mail support, you can ask as many questions as you like and receive that personalised attention you deserve 🙂

When you join Dare to Love - Online (Un)Learning Circle, you'll benefit from -

As you participate and engage in Dare to Love - Online (Un)Learning Circle you have the opportunity to discover what works for your self-care and wellbeing (yes we are different). When you start to re-align with your own heart, mind, body and soul life starts to flow.

Yes I know you may know the steps you need to take, however are you actually taking them? If so, well done! If not, this is one of the reasons why people love the course I have created - due to the structure and accountability. Something happens when you commit to another person and not just yourself!

The key to life is paying attention and being present. Yes, this can be challenging. On the surface, it can appear easier to bolt and run away (don't worry I have done that many, many times), however in the long run it doesn't work. This is why we are going to continually practice coming back to focus on yourself and your needs.

You will have encouragement and support from Jane. When was the last time someone gave you genuine support and celebrated your successes? In the Dare to Love - Online (Un)Learning Circle for Womxn, we want to share your successes, no matter how big or small they may seem!

Why I created Dare to Love - Online (Un)Learning Circle...

Hi - I am Jane - thanks for dropping by.

I created Dare to Love - Online (Un)Learning Circle for Womxn after having many conversations with a number of clients.

After creating Nourishing You, a few womxn asked me about what small steps I continue to take to continue to look after myself. So I decided to value add to Nourishing You with a Masterclass and safe and supportive community where it was OK to start talking more about self-care (yes it's more than bubble baths). Subsequently, Dare to Love - Online (Un)Learning Circle for Womxn was created.

"Dare to Love" is a 28-day Online (Un)Learning Circle for Womxn who are ready to change their relationship with themselves and start focusing, get clarity and develop self-awareness and self-care strategies in their work and life, so they can increase their energy levels, trust themselves and start to live their version of a whole-hearted life.

Your investment is just $147AUD!
