We designed this experience recognizing that many of the ideas that we’ve been chewing on require time to digest. This 12-part series explores monthly themes that invite women to shed their layers and reconnect with who they are when they are out of auto pilot. Who are you when there are no shoulds and supposed to dos blocking the way?
While many of our offerings are self-directed, we wanted to create one community-based highly experiential journey because, well, we’ve missed you. We love being together and showing up as humans exploring what’s possible when we come together in one magical space.
So, we have crafted an experience that invites us to share and witness each other's humanity so that we can hold and love all of our brokenness in one giant cocoon of keeping it real.

Annie is a somatic coach, registered massage therapist, educator, and mother of two. She maintains a trauma-informed massage therapy practice in Ottawa and provides mentorship to clinicians at risk of burnout, both online and in-person. Supporting health care workers to stay in the game, while staying human is a core interest, with a particular focus on the risks and challenges faced by women in midlife. Connections with friends, family and colleagues are her everything and if those connections happen by a lake or on a cross-country ski trail, so much the better.
