BraveHeart Women



In 2009 I began attending women circles and exploring a different perspective of the dominant culture. My experiences led me to conclude that empowering women to speak up from inner strength and courage would improve women’s mental and physical health and could even support healing on our planet. But how could I help women embody this courage?

My first BraveHeart Women Rise gave me the answers. The oxytocin breath, DYBO, and the Harmony Circle introduced new patterns of being in ease instead of doing with sheer will power and adrenal overload. I started listening more to my inner needs and desires and loving my uniqueness. I didn’t hesitate to sign up for DYBO training. The more I moved and released limitations, the more excited I was to be alive, the younger my body felt with less aches and pains. I felt bolder. I tried new things.

I want to share this journey with other women who are searching for answers. The answers are inside. I now guide women through the Female Success Model with DYBO, monthly Ripples, private coaching, and retreats.

Breathing in, breathing out, feeling good.

I would like to share with you the gifts I received from BraveHeart Women
a community of women around the world who are ready to BE, CREATE & COLLABORATE.

A Monthly Women’s Circle – RIPPLE

Join us in a women’s circle called a Ripple on the 11th of every month where we embody the practices from the Female Success Model.

Women all over the world are meeting on the 11th to release enculturated patterns of negative self-talk, fear, over giving and resentment, and the adrenalized patterns of fight, flight or freeze. There are actually natural female hormones we can create ourselves by simply breathing, relaxing, and enjoying sisterhood. During the Ripple we meet heart to heart in a Harmony Circle, dance off our buts/stuck energy, and practice gems from the Female Success Model.

Access our monthly Grass Valley CA Ripple News on   BraveHeart Women Grass Valley CA   or Facebook.
