Having just completed the first four-week series of KNOWING MYSELF, I am over-the-moon excited to begin the second series called OWNING MY LIFE.
As women met over these last four weeks, they create beautiful bonds of support and affirmation. As one woman said, “I don’t really know all of you, but I am so happy that I can be me.” Knowing another is never about length of time, but depth of seeing.
We may not know what other women do, or what they had for dinner, but when we meet with our minds and hearts open, we can see each other and share our own honest vulnerability.
This makes it safe to question old thinking that no longer serves and allows us to be willing to go farther and higher, standing in our authentic voice.
Each session explores a single aspect of life, focusing on building inner strength in that area. Doing deeper work in a group of like-minded women allows each to bring her own experiences and wisdom. When we can see how a new way of thinking or being serves us—those ahha moments-- it allows us to shift into what serves us best.
Join with amazing women from all over the world in this dynamic and impactful journey.
I look forward to working with you in these session to help you fully OWN YOUR LIFE
Series TWO: OWNING MY LIFE (4 x 2 hour sessions)
1. TELLING STORIES
WEDNESDAY JULY 8th
1-3pm or 7-9pm
Virginia Wolf wrote, “If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people.” We love telling stories as women. But sometimes we can get trapped in the memory of our stories. Can retelling our stories from different perspectives help us change our story?
2. TIME FOR OUR LIFE
WEDNESDAY JULY 15th
1-3pm or 7-9pm
Strange isn’t it -- the elasticity and yet ever illusiveness of time. Never enough it seems, even in this bizarre space of 2020. This session is a radical get-down and get-dirty practical time exploration for you to discover your own secrets stashes of time so you can become aware and create all the time you need for your life.
3. LETTING GOWEDNESDAY JULY 22nd
1-3pm or 7-9pm
We all get the theory that everything in life has a beginning and an end. But most of us are just happy to drift. And then we hit that wall—the one we did not see coming. Sometimes the only choice is letting go of that which has come to an end. Endings are always hard. This session is to learn how to recognise the signs of the end and learn to live with open hearts and hands.
4. THE GIFT OF LISTENING
WEDNESDAY JULY 29th
1-3pm or 7-9pm
This is a powerful session for women, as listening is one of the most important skillsets we possess. How do we listen? How is our listening different from how men listen? What happens to our self-esteem when we are not listened to -- in work or in life? What happens to others when we do not listen fully to them? How does our gift of listening lift others up?

MORE ON THE SERIES
This series offers a unique opportunity to examine your own life in deeper ways in each two-hour session. Being part of a community of ‘thinking women’ who are wide-awake allows you to be profoundly seen and heard in ways that will surprise you. And just as their vulnerability and wisdom supports and encourages you to create your life with new vitality and energy, so your experiences and wisdom will open them to new perspectives. “All the topics are extremely relevant. The collaboration and sharing among women is incredible, and it makes you feel empowered when peers are looking for the same thing that you are, how to become better every day.” N.F.
It’s ideal if you can sign up for each whole four-week series, as each session builds on previous ones. But you are more than welcome to join any session at any time. “I attended Nancy’s session on how we define success. The discussion increased my self-awareness and encouraged me to think. This was very important to me and surprised me that I really didn’t know what my needs or wants were, and the difference between the two. This was life-changing for both work and me personally. Her method is cutting edge and accomplishes many results in such a short time. No other recent training or development comes close.” D.F.
And yes, absolutely, invite a friend. It is a perfect way to connect with women all over the world to continue meaningful conversations in mutual encouragement and support.
Each week you will receive six beautifully designed pages which are your CREATING YOUR LIFE workbook. These are the questions for each week’s session, along with quotes and postcards. You can download the pages to create your own binder or type directly into these pages on your computer.
Once you have completed all four weeks of any of the eight series, you will receive a personalized certificate with your name on it.
Drop a line to Susan Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org and she can answer any and all questions to will make sure you have everything you need to sign up.

MORE BACKGROUND ON
NANCY TRITES BOTKIN
A professional woman who loves being a woman, I empower women to speak up, stand up, and connect with their greatness. Think8 Women (www.think8women.com) was created to enable women to find their purpose and use their gifts to change their world and the world. “Nancy Trites Botkin is an amazing facilitator, truly inspirational and brilliant, with the ability to touch people’s lives and change the way they think.” A.M. As Co-Founder and President of the Think8 Global Institute, transforming companies and organizations around the globe, it became clear that women wrestle with issues not always seen or addressed. Women take courses, we hire coaches, but rarely are our specific skill sets or the hurdles we jump through as women, acknowledged. How we create and move in the world is different from men, yet we are often measured against the ‘norm’ and found ‘lacking’. It is easy to get trapped in insecurities or fears that fuel over-commitment and over-delivery, then we wonder why we burn out.
Drawing on my background as an award-winning writer-producer-director in film and television, I designed the CREATING YOUR LIFE Series to deal with the real issues we face as women, and how they interconnect to the whole of our lives. Each topic is taken apart in light of current trends, common “think” and historical perspectives, peeling back layers in deeper questions, to share invaluable insights, experience and wisdom.
