12-WEEK WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM
Long before putting this program on paper and into action, I unknowingly walked through it myself. I’ve worked on fine-tuning this transformational program for almost two years as I’ve personally lived it and guided many women to share their stories on the Unveiled Beauty stage.
SO WHAT IS IT?
Unveiled YOU! is a unique, life-changing women’s empowerment program that helps awaken and reclaim personal power through storytelling and community. Really it’s a process… a process to dig in, acknowledge our past, open up space for inner growth and find peace in our journey. In doing so, YOU become the highest YOU that you were meant to be. All of this is done through the lens of your own life stories.
If you have experienced our Unveiled Beauty storytelling events, you have only seen a sneak peek into the power of the full program. We’ve taken this platform and expanded it into a massive personal development incubator… so you can experience the expansion and release of your inner power come alive. You can begin to live at a whole new level… YOU can step into your bravery and free your story.
In this 12-week program, you will go through the "5 Phase Process" that leads you to the powerful moment of being witnessed by your community of women and giving your story a voice on the Unveiled Beauty stage.
The 5 Phase Process
PHASE I: UNCOVER YOUR TRUTH
(Weeks 1, 2, 3)
We begin at the beginning – where healing and empowerment unfold. Unpacking our memories from our heads and hearts and moving them onto paper is the first step to awakening YOU. We must bravely reflect on our entire life stories and learn to sit with both the pain and the moments of great joy. We ask ourselves the hard questions, knowing this is the only path to finding peace in our journey. We uncover and build a deeper connection with our truth so we can prepare ourselves to write our stories and move into a newfound sense of power.
KEY FOCUS: REFLECTION + WRITING
PHASE II: SUITED IN VULNERABILITY
(Weeks 4, 5)
In Phase II, we experience a deepening level of community and security. As we listen to other women bare their stories, struggles and truth, we are reminded that we are not alone on this journey. In an intimate and judgment-free space, we learn to trust others and more importantly, ourselves. In witnessing every day women share their pain and joy, we strengthen our empathy for others, as well as the bravery within ourselves. We realize our vulnerability as bravery – and bravery is beautiful, which we capture in our customized photo shoot.
KEY FOCUS: LISTENING + VULNERABILITY
PHASE III: REWRITE YOUR STORY
(Weeks 6, 7, 8, 9)
Phase III is about crafting our story, including the life lessons & personal growth experienced as a result. Earlier phases prepare us for this, by taking ample time to reflect on who we have been, what lessons we've learned, and who we want to become. We learn how to move beyond telling others about our experiences to bringing them along the journey with us. In customized workshops, we delve into story architecture and how to find the heart of our stories. With guidance and love, we rewrite our stories from a narrative of hope. We lean into the darkness and the light and feel more comfortable sitting with our truth.
KEY FOCUS: WRITING + ACCEPTANCE
PHASE IV: RULER OF MEMORIES
(Weeks 10, 11)
In Phase IV we are given tools and guidance to confidently share our stories in public. We learn to lean into our truth and our power. In essence, we become the RULER of our memories. The Unveiled Beauty stage is only a physical space and we begin to realize our journey can be an inspiration to others. We use our courage and knowledge to stand up in front of our community, capture the audience’s attention, and build strong connections.
KEY FOCUS: SPEAKING + CONFIDENCE
PHASE V: ADORNED IN BRAVERY
The final phase is the pinnacle of empowerment – a sacred space where the power within us rises. As we are witnessed, we embody bravery by embracing our vulnerabilities, rather than turning away from them. In a hushed moment, we step onto stage and into the light and love of our community, and we realize we have been strong, powerful and brave all along. All we needed was the toolkit and the support of others to experience the power of owning our stories. By reaching this moment, we free ourselves. We are, now, ready to stand in our divine Beauty and Bravery.
