Ready to take your joy back into YOUR OWN hands? Read SANCTUARY. 

Joy is our natural state of being. Unresolved emotional trauma is its #1 obstacle. Even if you haven’t been directly traumatized, I am 100% positive you know someone who has. Like a power-leak, this can be extremely draining. Life is short. The costs of trauma are high.

Wholehearted Networking Course and Community

Read the extended description and get the registration link here.

Wholehearted Networking is a course and a community where you will learn how to take healthy, self-interested action, which is essential for their ability to shift from surviving to thriving, especially if they have a tendency to over-give their Time, Energy and Attention to others. She encourages people to use their T.E.A. time to focus on developing their S.P.A. (Sovereignty, Power and Agency).

As adults, it’s rare that we are asked, “What’s most important to you? What’s your vision for your life? What do you need in order to thrive? What kind of support do you need?” These kinds of questions help us to be true to ourselves, and to our souls. They invite us to self-champion ourselves, and help us move from surviving and into thriving.

Wholehearted Networking is focused on increasing the quality and quantity of meaningful conversations. Debbie hosts live stream discussions on the gap between trauma and joy, featuring daily wisdom and a series of self-reflection questions.
