There’s 2 days left to join me for Replenish 365 ~2016! (Doors close Friday, January 22 at midnight and we begin bright and early THIS Saturday!!)
I’m already in absolute awe of the circle that has formed. Close to 200 women from all over the world are gathering for this incredible, life-changing journey together.
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve received some very thoughtful questions from moms who are considering joining the group. And I know that if one woman asks, there are many others wondering the same thing.
If you are still considering whether this program is a yes for you these questions may help you make an informed decision.
Q | Lisa, I live in Ireland/Australia/Singapore (or any other non-USA country) and was wondering if I can still participate.
A| Absolutely! Replenish 365 is filled with mamas hailing from all over the world. We are truly an international community here. All the material of the program is delivered online (if you can listen to an audio file, watch a video and download a pdf you can fully participate!)
Q | Lisa, I was wondering about the Small Group Circles. I’m in a different time zone than you, how does that work?
A | We want these Small Group Calls to work for you! If you choose the Small Group Circle option you’ll be given an opportunity to indicate the best times and days for you to make a live call. We’ll use that information to match you with a circle that can meet when it is convienent for you!
Q | Lisa, a full year program feels like a lot of material- On average, how much time weekly will this take for me to get the most out of it?
A | You’re right! This program is designed with a lot of targeted, streamlined and practical material. But you won’t find yourself with a massive library of information that just sits there gathering dust because I have done the work in organizing and translating it into actionable, easy to consume parts.
Generally the teaching modules will have an audio class component that is on average around 30 minutes.
Some weeks there will be an accompanying short video (in the 10 minute range.)
There will also be streamlined lifework materials that help guide you to make the work more relevant in your life. Going through these materials could be between 15-30 min on average.
Not every week is exactly the same, but this is a general sense.
That being said, all the material for the whole year is designed with a busy mom in mind. There will be weeks when you have more time to invest than others–we totally get that and built it into the design. You can access all the material at any time (and you can download the material so you have it for a lifetime!).
Women who take my courses revisit the material over many times because they can dive in to the work in different ways as the seasons of their life change and allow.
Q | I know Replenish 365 officially begins January 23, how long will you be accepting enrollment for?
A | The last day to join is January 22. When we set sail on the 23rd, the doors close so we can settle in and gel as a group for the incredible year ahead of us!
Q | I feel a little odd asking this, but am I too old for this group? My children are grown and I wonder if this is primarily for women with young children? (Or I’m not a mom, am I still welcome?)
A | I would be thrilled to have you as part of this program and want you to know that you will find yourself in a beautifully diverse group of moms!
While the majority of the women who take my courses are moms to school-aged children, there are a handful of women who are moms to adult children and who are grandmothers themselves! Our range is from newborn (one of our mamas just gave birth days ago) to adult children.
There will also be a range of us hormonally, as well, from child-bearing to peri-menopausal and menopausal. I find it a great blessing that the WellGrounded Life community draws such diversity as it always blesses the group to have the wisdom of many perspectives along the journey.
Additionally, every year there are a handful of women who are not moms who join us! While the majority of us are moms, this work focuses on ways to stay well and vital while managing a busy life- and most all women can relate and connect to that!
Q | I’m concerned about the Facebook group – I don’t “do” facebook, will I still feel connected?
A | While not the majority, there are always a percentage of women who choose not to join the FB group in all of my courses. There is never any material that is delivered via Facebook, so you will not miss out on any of the content of the program by not joining.
In terms of support and community, we have two options to choose from.
The Community Access gives entry to the full program content with the Facebook group as the main way to connect with the other women in the program.
The Small Group Circles gives entry to the full program content and the Facebook group but also builds in a more intimate level of support.
Each Small Group Circle member is placed in a small group (between 2-4 women in total) and matched with a Replenish 365 Mentor (see next question!). The small group circle will meet live by phone once a month and each member will have a personal email exchange with the Replenish 365 Mentor once a month. In this way, someone who does not want to “do Facebook” but still desires community and connection can find their right level of support in the Small Group Circle option.
Q | Who are the Small Group Mentors?
The Replenish 365 Mentors are graduates of the WellGrounded Institute’s Certification Program for Women’s Wellness Educators. Fully trained in the Replenish 365 curriculum, these women have hearts on fire for supporting moms along their self care journeys AND have the training to guide, clarify and encourage women as they deepen their learning throughout the whole program.
Q | Could you give me a little more information about the topics covered throughout the year?
A | As a quick overview, the year begins by exploring calming strategies from a number of perspectives: limbic calming techniques, sovereign thoughts, and foods that calm and steady our metabolism and biochemistry.
Then we shift the lens more fully to nutrition and explore specific ways foods impact our energy, mood, mental clarity, metabolism, cravings, mindfulness and food, as well as core self care practices that enhance proper sleep, immunity, and movement. Finally we touch in on how whole foods can be used to cleanse and detoxify our systems.
Next we delve into the 5 major hormonal systems: sex hormones, adrenal, thyroid, metabolic and neurotransmitters (mood hormones) and gain specific tools and practices to balance and nourish these systems.
Our final stretch of curriculum takes a macro lens and explores how to bolser and enrichen our most important relationships. We then look at how to prioritize our time, energy and focus back to what is most important to us: our passion, priority, purpose and prosperity in order to align the larger parts of our life with what is most meaningful to us.
Throughout the year we have monthly Soul Care reflections that give us space and permission to explore the inner workings of our lives and hearts.
Q | Are you a Christian?
A | I am a Christian and often get asked that question from women interested in taking my courses, so it is a welcome dialogue!
While my courses through WellGrounded Life are not faith based curricula, I do speak openly about my understanding of how an inner life is one in which we connect, listen and adjust our outer life to have harmony with our relationship to God.
I am aware, though, there are many women from many different faith backgrounds that take my courses.
While my courses are not evangelistic – I share honestly and transparently about my own faith and world views when it is relevant as a means to help the women in my courses understand how I come to my own decisions and understanding in my life.
Replenish 365 is for mamas who want to feel exquisitely supported throughout 2016 in order to nourish, restore and elevate their whole-person health.
This means you’ll learn how to get out of our own way, get to know yourself more deeply and learn how to restore an energized body, uplifted mood, clear mind and grounded spirit.
Beautiful Mama, I’m sending this full of gratitude that you are part of the WellGrounded Life community.
I hope I get the chance to know you better in 2016.
And if the nudges to say yes to your own well-being begin to move in your heart, I hope you have the courage to say yes and experience the goodness of what’s ahead!
Much love, always,
