The Journey to Wholeness and Purpose
"Tell me what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? -Mary Oliver
We all long to have the courage to bring our authentic selves forward. And we are not meant to do this alone. This journey called life is a collective affair and it is in relationship with others that we discover, learn and grow as individuals.
Created by women for women at any stage of their life and work, Coming Into Your Own (CIYO) provides a structured space to:
Take a "time-out" - Pause and Reflect
Reclaim lost parts of your Self, your Power, your Wisdom
Develop new skills of Discernment and Direction
Leave with concrete tools to bring to life your Dreams and Potential
In the words of a former participant:
"CIYO is for women ready to empower themselves
to lead their ideal lives. If you want to have more
clarity on your life purpose; how your past can become
your strength; how to see what's hidden inside you; this
is the right program for you."
- M.O., Istanbul, Turkey
Why You? Why Now?
Investing in women is the most impactful way to bring about real change in the world. We need all women operating at full capacity to face the complex challenges of this 21st century world. Across all the roles they play - be it mother, teacher, CEO, entrepreneur or artist - empowering women lifts up humanity.
Why CIYO Works
The program foundations are based on universal truths that has been validated by modern science. Highly experiential and engaging, the process includes solo reflection, collective dialogue, active practice with concrete tools and experiential learning in small groups. CIYO is designed to awaken, develop and nurture all aspects of being human, empowering women to grow their capacity from the inside out.
It is an individualized experience where each woman deepens her ability to navigate her personal and professional life with greater accuracy and precision. Identifying current challenges and barriers to forward movement, thresholds are crossed and shifts in perspective are made … all in a supportive, confidential and nourishing environment. Our groups are kept small to ensure one-on-one conversation, rich dialogue, and unparalleled learning from each person in the circle.
In its 20th year, CIYO continues to stand the test of time as a powerful and transformative experience with global reach, offered in more than a dozen countries in six different languages. In addition to providing practical strategies and tools, the program develops the whole person from the inside by honoring what makes us most human.
"May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love,
To postpone my dream no longer
But do at least what I came here for
And waste my heart on fear no more"
- John O'Donohue
