You're invited....

Time to pause to create a different type of balance between work and life?

Or realise it is no longer about the hustle, pushing or feeling overwhelmed to get things done and forgetting about your own needs and desires?

Or create a new way of life - one that is aligned with the flow of your own energy and heart (not just your head) and that is sustainable and nourishing.

And of course you're welcome to attend as you are!

Welcome to Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection...

Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection is a safe and supportive online learning community for womxn who are ready to invest time and attention to reconnect with themselves, so they can make conscious and empowering choices, focus on what matters most to them and trust themselves to create and lead a whole-hearted life with the support of ongoing personal and professional (un)learning.

How It Works...

As a member of Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection, you have the opportunity to pause and reconnect with your own inner wisdom, develop greater self-acceptance and align with what matters to you by developing self-knowledge, learning to like and trusting your self.

The monthly Themed Masterclass is the focus of 'Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection'. Each month (on the new moon) we will meet and I will share the monthly topic in the Masterclass. In the Masterclass, I will guide you through -

  • Inquiry questions and journalling prompts relevant to the monthly theme to help support your focus and take action on what matters most to you,
  • Activities and exercises on the monthly theme to deepen awareness and let-go of any resistance to your hearts desire,
  • Simple habit ideas to help support you to deepen your own wisdom and centre within your own being, and
  • Stories and poetry to feed your own inner guide and wisdom.

Here's What Else You Receive By Belonging to Small Steps...

“It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.” ~ Old Chinese Proverb

This is what we will be focusing on in Small Steps...

When you join Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection, you will join a community of women who will be learning to -

  • Thrive as a woman and leader in ways that don’t involve hustling, working harder or longer,
  • Trust themselves and know what is their responsibility and what is not,
  • Understand the benefits and rewards of asking for help,
  • Do more of the things that give them joy and energy (not deplete it),
  • Notice when them are most productive throughout the day, week, month and year and when is best for you to take a rest,
  • Work in a way that honours their body and helps them tap in to their own energy and creativity,
  • Reclaim their own authenticity and power (yes you do have it), and
  • Discover and invest in their own needs and dreams, so they can focus on what matters to them!

When you join Small Steps, you'll benefit from -

As you participate, engage and do the work in Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection on a regular basis, you will discover additional self-worth, self-acceptance and evolve as a person. When you start to re-align with your own heart, mind, body and soul life starts to flow.

Yes I know you may have some of these books or know about some of the topics, however are you reading the books and applying the information? If so, well done! If not, this is one of the reasons why people love Small Steps - due to the structure and accountability.

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 from other members. When was the last time someone gave you genuine support and celebrated you for being YOU? In Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection, we want to share your successes and learnings, no matter how big or small they may seem!

Topics we will be Exploring and Developing...

Depending on the research you read, some people say it takes 18 - 254 days to change or develop a habit and change the neural pathways in your brain. I am not sure which research to believe some days, however what I do know is that it takes awareness, action and commitment to create sustainable change and develop effective habits and only you can make those changes (no-one can do it for us).

Therefore, each month we will be exploring and focusing on specific topics (i.e. developing self-knowledge and self-awareness) and then from there, you can decide what habits you would like to create. The topics / areas of life for each month are listed below. As we are following the moon phases, we will have an extra month at the end for your choice!

What Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection is NOT...

Small Steps is NOT -

  • another blueprint, program or or 7-step course (human beings are too complex and simple for them - yes that is a paradox 🙂 ),
  • about being perfect - it is about embracing your humanness and who you truly are whole-heartedly,
  • following a program to get certain results. I cannot guarantee what you will receive (it depends on where you are and what you want to focus on for the month),  and
  • an advice giving space (as you are not broken and do not need fixing). It is about you returning to be the expert in your own life and learning to trust yourself fully.

Make time for your life and creative desires...

Come and join me and give yourself the gift and healing of your own attention and presence.

You will be grateful you did!

With the connection created in a safe and supportive environment and an investment of time and money, you will start to create a life that is more aligned with who you are and a deeper sense of belonging. You will start to develop greater awareness, have more compassion for your self, increase your confidence and trust yourself. This is about progress, NOT perfection. So if you already have these aspects covered you will dive deeper with the tools and daily check-in time.

Why I created Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection...

Hi - I am Jane Taylor - let me share a little bit about Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection.

At the end of 2014, I made a promise to myself - to be my own best friend by the end of 2015. I started to question everything around me (and still do). I created boundaries, broke up with disempowering habits, allowed myself to stay in bed until I wanted to get up (some days), donated money to charities I wanted to, let go of situations and experiences that were exhausting me, allowed myself to start receiving more, live above the line, find my voice and started speaking up more as well as a number of other aspects. I also went to a lot of amazing professional development, however felt a little let down with the lack of follow-up support.

This continued in to the following years as I realised many of the things I was doing needed to become habits for my own wellbeing. Today, I feel more like the real Jane than I have in years. Yes, the adventure has been (and is) challenging (yep that's the truth), however I can see clearly that what I needed was to pause and gently reconnect with my own world of fears, distorted thoughts and insecurities as they held wisdom. Then once I was clear, I could take small steps towards my vision and purpose and move towards whole-heartedness. Pausing and reflecting is now well-ingrained in to my world and I continue to take small steps each day to living whole-heartedly. However, I also want to continue (consistently) this adventure in a community of like-minded women who are ready to start to take small steps towards their dreams and reconnect with their own wisdom.

So, I sent a survey out to the people on the Habits for Wellbeing list to see if this was something they also wanted to be apart of. They told me very clearly they wanted a place to learn more about self-care, leadership and wellbeing and then implement what they chose to. Subsequently, Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection was created.

Small Steps Towards Whole-Hearted Connection is a safe and supportive online learning community for womxn who are ready to invest time and attention to reconnect with themselves, so they can make conscious and empowering choices, focus on what matters most to them and trust themselves to create and lead a whole-hearted life with the support ongoing personal and professional (un)learning.

Your investment is just $365AUD for 12 months or $595 for You + a Friend 🙂
