Join us in Bali, September 2020
There is no question that you’ve got a lot going on. You’re making big things happen, and everywhere you look, you’re in charge of something: a household, a partnership, kids, employees, the success of a company, maybe a company of your own, making your mark in the world as best you can.
You’re trying to keep all the balls in the air amidst making big moves. And dang, it’s exhausting. And unsustainable.
One of the things you long for is a place to let it all go. A place where you can just be, not worry about to-do lists or people needing things from you.
You long for surrender.
You’ve heard of it. You have the faintest inkling that maybe it’s not the negative thing you previously thought it to be. That it’s not defeat. That it’s not telling someone else they’re better, stronger, or more capable than you. You’re not sure, but you think it could be the doorway to something different. We’re here to tell you that it is the doorway to everything you’ve ever dreamed of or desired. In fact, it’s the key to truly discovering your dreams and desires at the deepest level.
Feminine power comes from surrender—it comes from your being not your doing. You may have heard this before and had no idea what it meant. You may have seen a glimpse of what it might mean somewhere in your life and you’re looking to find out how to have more of it.
Step into the unknown – with all of your power.
Since you’re here, chances are good you’ve found yourself in the middle of some big leap – or you’re wanting to make one. (Starting to look for a new way to do things shows up when you’ve hit capacity and are exhausted with our current ways of doing things.) You’re done letting fear hold you back, but you also have to face the very real uncertainty that can come with stepping into the unknown.
We won’t promise to make the gap between where you’ve jumped from and where you want to land any shorter – but we can promise you the skills to make the in-between more enjoyable, more potent, and more fruitful.
We jumped out of the nest.
A little more than 5 years ago, we both walked through the doorway of surrender. Almost accidentally. And our lives have never been the same. We’re now both full-time entrepreneurs with coaching businesses. But that may well be one of the least important of our credentials as far as you’re concerned. We are two of the most self-possessed women you’ll ever meet. We live life on our own terms. We are creating exactly the lives we want, and we see evidence everywhere of those lives coming to fruition. Probably the most important thing though is that we are building those lives without force or efforting, without exhausting ourselves with the endless to-do’s and shoulds of our previous lives.
We are building sustainable lives we love and we’re doing it from a place of feminine power.
We are women who live in the real world. We face real challenges. This year Kianga lost her mother after becoming an unexpected caregiver. And Rachel made the decision to share a home with her ex-husband to provide the best environment for their child. But we have evidence that all of these things are better when explored from a place of receptivity rather than resistance. We’ve found the old adage “what you resist persists” to be true. And we have found another way. We’ve learned that our commitment to the process of how we live **is the how** to bring our visions into reality. In our five-year journey, we have learned that it’s what we practice that makes the difference.
How we make our decisions is even more important than the decisions we make.
We want to support you to have it all by learning to:
- Dial up your connection to your intuition.
- Learn how to use your body to make decisions.
- Experience what it feels like to let go of the control that’s been exhausting you.
- Discover what you desire beyond other people’s expectations.
- Explore what your sexuality has to tell you about your personal path to success.
September 14 – 18, 2020
For Deep Jungle Surrender, we invite you into the lush, untamed wild lands of Bali to connect with your deep feminine. We’re pretty sure you’re not finding it at your neighborhood café. Though once you have a relationship with that Inner Wild, we promise you can take it anywhere.
We’re both women who used to be Bosses. Literally. Kianga worked in Manhattan, directing a university art program, managing a faculty and her own international art and teaching projects around the world. Rachel comes from a background in marketing and non-profit, where you had to work hard, be scrappy, and tired was a badge of honor showing how invested you were.
We’ve both done it like it’s supposed to be done. And we had the exhaustion to prove it. We were at the top of our respective games. And mostly we felt trapped there. Trapped in our competence. Trapped by an unending sense of obligation and the devil of “appropriateness”.
Now Kianga is traveling full time. She spends her time dancing, coaching, writing, teaching, and learning in equal measure. Our Bali retreat caps off her Australia tour before she heads to Peru to study and Brazil to dance her favorite dance (for a month!).
But there’s no template here.
We’re not selling wanderlust, we’re talking about you living YOUR best life in a way that is satisfying to you every day. Not just when you reach the goal.
Rachel is a mama to a special needs kid and she’s able to make his needs and the balance of their lives together her priority every day.
It’s kind of a marvel how different our dream lives look from each other. But as people who have been in almost daily conversation for half a decade, we also have deep respect for how similar the processes were to arrive at our very different ideal lives. What we had to let go of. How we had to reorder how we think about what’s happening “to” us on a daily basis. The practices and habits we had to cultivate. And the way we did it was nothing short of trial and error. A lot of trial, and a boatload of error. In the transition we’ve both lived with our parents, worked low-wage jobs, and made at least one investment in coaching or business support that didn’t bring everything we’d hoped it would.
What if you could benefit from what we learned without needing to make so many errors of your own?
It’s an invitation to a very intimate and life-changing experience. We are opening for a crucible of deep personal exploration for 18 women over 5 intensive days.
How we do anything is how we do everything.
So, no matter if your dream is partnership or family or raging career success, if your goals are financial or completely immaterial, the way to get there is the same. Deep Jungle Surrender is your invitation to find out how.
A loose sense of how our days will be organized for imagination purposes. Every day will have its own flavor, and cultivating peaceful agility with what comes is part of what’s on the agenda.
