OWN YOUR STORY

A Transformational, 9-Week Intensive Program

Calling all teachers, coaches, and entrepreneurs
on a mission to create change by serving others!

Does the idea of stepping into the spotlight and telling your story make you break out into a cold sweat?

Do you find yourself saying things like:

  • "I can’t speak in front of people." 
  • "Nobody wants to hear what I have to say."
  • "My mind just goes blank."

People dedicated to the service of others often shy away from the spotlight - focusing attention instead on
those whom they serve. whiteShirt4-edited.png
Truly having the impact that you desire begins with owning your story. It’s time to learn to be YOU - deeply, passionately, presently, RawThentically YOU ... even (and especially) when the focus is on you.

Your soul has a story to tell.

Are you ready and willing to stand in your power and speak your truth? 

 

 

Tell Your Story in the Service of Something Greater

Are you feeling called to come out of hiding in order to serve others in a bigger way?
Now is the time to step up and own your story ...
because sharing your story will inspire others.

Case Studies

Before doing the Voice Matters Immersion program with Lauri I … 
When speaking to or in front of groups I would struggle with feeling overwhelmed by all the energy in the room and not knowing what to do with it. My strategies for dealing with these situation were very ineffective. I would either speak very fast and as little as possible to get it over with, or I’d put on a mask and speak articulately but without any heart.

During the Immersion program I … 
I had the insight that my challenge was feeling all the energy of the group, but not knowing what to do with it. I also started seeing how my strategies that involved ignoring, blocking or running away from the energy were not effective. I started experimenting with the Vocal Presence Path and through it I’m learning how to embrace the energy in the room in a way that feels good to me and others.

As a result of Immersion, I … 
I am getting more comfortable with group discussions and presentations. I look forward to showing up, taking up space, speaking my truth from the heart, embracing the energy of others and hearing what they have to say. I feels exciting and liberating to look forward to rather than dread my next group encounter.

Before doing the Voice Matters Immersion program with Lauri I … 
 
had a lot of confidence building to do. Especially in the area of public speaking. Any and every time I would have any sort of small speaking event I would completely fall apart. My brain would take over and I immediatley became someone who didn't believe in themselves. 
I always knew this about myself, but it became really clear when I had to practice public speaking during my yoga certification and as soon as I started speaking I fell apart and started hyperventilating. 
 
During the Immersion program I … 
 
slowly started to gain some more confidence. By having Lauri there guiding me and asking me questions that helped me look deeper into my psyche I could start focusing on the task at hand and dismantle all the negativity that always took over. Having her there by my side and working closely with her and other students, I was able to practice the art of public speaking and not get so caught up in the habitual negative self-talk that I often experienced. 
 
The most helpful thing I learned was going through the steps that Lauri taught us starting with acknowledging the, as Lauri called them, "soul suckers" which is our brains way of 'protecting' us. They actually serve little purpose but we've learned to take them for face value instead of acknowledging them for what they really are, soul suckers. They really do suck the soul out of you.
 
As a result of Immersion, I … 
 
My biggest accomplishment this year was being a part of an active portfolio for the company I work for Salesforce. A team from Salesforce was participating, as they do every year, in the Best Places to Work awards and the team asked me to be a part of their submission. I had to lead a meditation to a group of 30 strangers and answer any questions they had about meditation and mindfulness. I was nervous, as usual, but the best part was I ACCOMPLISHED IT with great success! I was so proud of myself and I attribute that to Lauri, 100%. 
 
What's possible for me and my future is sharing myself more to the public. I care deeply about people and by being able to have more confidence in public speaking and more confidence in myself, I have a bigger audience to share this with and to help. My aim has always been to help people and now I feel like I can in a whole new way.
