The Practice of Living Slower

I'm Michelle!

I’ve been studying and working with women for more than 20 years. I've learned who we are and what we need.

I’m really tired of going fast.

And hard.

And pushing till my bones hurt.

We live in a culture that demands we go faster and faster. Click-bait, sound bites, competition to get more and more and more. Traffic. Appointments. Getting the kids from here to there and there.

Posting. Sharing. Narrating our lives on social media, even in the quiet moments. We don’t stop.

Faster and faster.

Until we break. Until we can’t do it anymore. Until our body shouts NO!

But what if there were another way? What if we practiced going slowly? On purpose.

So we can feel.

So we can hear.

So that all the noise and distraction can settle.

We slowly unwind the tightly coiled burdens.

In the slowness we can finally remember. Who we are. What we need.

There is clarity. And breath. And release.

There is peace.

There is truth. There is courage. There is power.

And so, this is how we practice. Slow. On purpose.

Michelle, can you relate? Does your life feel like it’s spinning out of control? Are you moving so fast you can hardly breathe?

Join me this Sunday to deepen into this conversation. I will be offering a free Sunday Service on “living slower,” and how, with the conscious choice to slow down, we can access and see who we truly are. We can heal the hurt and put back the broken pieces so we can meet this crazy moment in time. It’s at 9am PST in our private group. The Sunday Service is always recorded, so you can watch it on your own time too.

Hi, I’m Michelle. Your Soul Midwife.

I've led thousands of women back to themselves and to a truer life. As a devoted business owner and mother of two teenagers, I know what it’s like to hold the weight of multiple worlds, and how easy it is to abandon yourself in the overwhelm.

Through my own transformation and 20 years of working closely with women, I developed The Practice®, a leadership program, and transformational process that teaches women leaders how to reclaim their lives and live without self-sacrifice.

This is a personal story about listening to my inner call and making a huge life change.

This piece is really intimate...

A reflection on 2020, living with chronic illness, and surviving the pandemic.

May we find the courage to break old patterns and put ourselves first in service of those we love and the world we live in.
