For the woman who is ready to step into her true power as an agent of change.


Because you have heard the Mysterial call and you know the time is now.

The Calling


The Mysterial Leadership Emergence Program is a revolutionary high-touch transformational program for women who want to heal their deep individual and collective traumas, implement lasting change in their personal lives, and become much-needed agents of change in the world.

The Commitment to Lead in a New and Better Way


We are in the midst of a profound shake-up in the world as COVID, with all of its ramifications, continues to ripple around the globe. There is no going back to the old ways. The evolutionary forces are urging women now to grow into the leaders who can be a match for the complexity of these times.

We’ve spent the last half-century breaking into the Masculine systems and structures, and now we’re at a major turning point; a rite of passage that is calling us to awaken and weave together our Deep Feminine and Masculine expressions of wisdom, love and power to create a better world for all. This requires an entirely new way of being, a new “source code” and an upgrade in the fundamental set of inner instructions for growth.

As our Mysterial qualities come online we naturally become leaders in our world. We rest into a deep sense of sufficiency from which our empowered actions are ignited. We know that we belong here on planet earth, have a unique contribution to make, and feel the freedom to express our full creative genius. And we are ready to show up in our wholeness and speak our truth as we partner with the Mystery to unfold the future. This is simply who we are — in the office, with our children, as we create art, with our intimate partners, or as we simply interact with people in the grocery store.

And this is exactly what is most needed in this time on our planet — the courage and commitment, resilience and grace to lead in an entirely new, embodied, integral, MYSTERIAL way — a way that includes all of who we are.

For the first time ever we are combining the Level 1 and Level 2 programs together into one powerfully transformational journey so that the path for awakening Mysterials to emerge is more accelerated. We are needed.

The Time Is Now.

Mysterial Outcomes


Hear what women leaders have said about the impact of Emergence on their lives.

Sarah shares her story:

Sarah had a great desire to be an empowered woman. As a business owner, nurse, yoga instructor, mother, and grandmother she showed up quite successfully on the surface but she was burnt out internally and became very ill as result of constantly pushing herself toward true achievement and empowerment and proving to herself that she was enough.

Sarah became intrigued by Suzanne’s work and research particularly as it applied to the limiting beliefs held by the unconscious mind of women, ultimately holding them back from true fulfillment. She found the safe and nourishing environment, the beautiful pacing, and the systematic architecture of the program lent her the capacity and knowledge to understand her own limiting beliefs around intimacy. She credits the Mysterial pathway as the key to her empowered capacity to be intimate in a way she could have never imagined, which led to her connecting to her soulmate and marrying him 6 months later.

Tania shares her story:

Tania came into the program completely overworked and exhausted. As a fast-tracked executive and new mother of two children, she found herself angry, resentful, anxious, and overwhelmed. And on top of all that, she was struggling in her marriage.

Tania had a deep desire to find her purpose, to do meaningful work that nourished her soul, and to have a real impact on the world that was different and profound. She found her work with Suzanne took her to another level of knowing and being with herself that unleashed self compassion for her choices and provided her with a new set of practices, rituals, and a fundamental framework she uses to this day.

Astrid and Jennifer share their stories:

What is the Mysterial Sequence?

Our Proven Pathway for Transformation


As you work to heal the very deep individual and collective trauma, you will awaken parts of yourself that have been locked away in the unconscious, possibly for your entire life.

You will experience a sense of wholeness and coming home in a way that awakens a powerful sense of confidence and possibility for the future.

The Mysterial Sequence (see image below) is a groundbreaking and proven developmental pathway for women, engaging Feminine and Masculine polarities in a way that leads to the birthing of the next level of our human potential.

I. The Mother – Hero Archetype Polarity

When the first archetype polarity—the Mother and the Hero—are both healthy and fully activated, an important transformation naturally occurs within you.

The Mother’s quality of Radiant Presence synthesizes with the Hero’s quality of Empowered Action and the meta-quality of Empowered Radiant Presence arises in your way of being and doing.

This is the true fruit of inner initiation.
  • Now you’re able to source your doing from the healthy ground of your being.
  • Your very presence uplifts those around you and encourages their best performance.
  • You embody both the kindness of The Mother and the courage of The Hero.
  • You inspire trust, respect, and cooperation simply by being who you really are.
  • Others are attracted to the natural inner glow of a woman who acts purposefully in the world while deeply grounded in her own sufficiency.
As we awaken the first polarity of The Mother – Hero archetypes, the transformation allows you to…
  • Cultivate the solid ground of your Feminine Being as a powerful vessel that can hold the fire and intensity to sustainably bring your gifts into the world.
  • Excavate unconscious sabotaging beliefs that have held you hostage for a lifetime, and replace them with conscious beliefs that liberate your full potential.
  • Cultivate the capacities that enable ease, intimacy, and skillful creativity in your relationships.
  • Learn to differentiate when to act decisively and when to let factors ripen for the best possible outcome for all.
  • Become skilled in transforming reactivity into self-authored, creative action.
  • Establish a set of capacity-building leadership practices as the stable infrastructure encouraging your development for the rest of your life.
  • Deepen your capacity to build strategic alliances and inspire others.
  • Learn to harness the creative potential of ambiguity and generate breakthrough results.
  • Gain a profound sense of your own value and sufficiency, enabling you to be more confident, authentic and glowing with Empowered Radiant Presence.

II. The Father – Maiden Archetype Polarity

From this opening, the second archetypal polarity—the Father and the Maiden—naturally begins to beckon.

A longing arises to develop the capacity for building reliable systems that will provide a solid and enduring foundation for a life of substance and contribution.

You hunger for the self-confidence to stand in your own Joyful True Authority and honor the gifts and beauty of others and the world around you, recognizing that you belong and are part of a diverse and interconnected ecosphere.

  • You become aware that you’re capable of gaining access to the wild, exciting, and dynamic force of your Joyful Creativity.
  • You yearn to grow your capacity for deep intuition and connect to the raw life energy that allows you to innovate and set off on bold new adventures.
  • You are called to challenge your old ways of thinking and liberate yourself and others from unnecessary constrictions.
  • You are ready to go with the flow of life, and balance play with work as you stop taking yourself and life so seriously.
  • And you desire to liberate your sexual and heart energy, so that you can enter into the intimate dance of mutuality with others.
Awakening the second polarity of the Father – Maiden archetypes, you will…
  • Accelerate your development up the spiral so that you are increasingly able to handle the complex challenges of your life.
  • Connect more fully with your own personal purpose and passion so that you can stand in your own true authority and joyfully follow your unique destiny line out into the world.
  • Live your life as a creative experiment that you enter boldly into every day, curious to see what you will invent, and where joy is not a fleeting experience, earned after a lot of hard work and lost as soon as you return to the grindstone.
  • Along with an increased ability to be with the difficult moments of life, you are ready to playfully engage in the fun of living. You recognize that this is your birthright and you work to live, not live to work.
  • Awaken your fun-loving, spontaneous, curious, imaginative, intuitive, and adventurous self and unleash your creative expression.
  • Recognize that you do belong in a friendly universe and that you are not alone.
  • Establish the ability to create the order and the structures necessary so that you can bring your gifts into the world sustainably.
  • Install a grounded sense of confidence in yourself so that you can weather the ups and downs of life and all its challenges, handling the pressures of a complex life with resilience and grace.

III. The Awakening of The Crone Archetype

Beyond the second Father – Maiden polarity, The Crone archetype waits patiently.

This third face of the Feminine has been preparing for millennia to finally come through in consciousness. You can already imagine what it would be like to hold seeming opposites without contradiction, and be able to let go of those things that no longer serve you.

When the Crone awakens you are able to see the intelligent patterns in the chaos of life and use all of your ways of knowing to pierce through confusion and take action.

  • You are committed to being a catalytic force able to synthesize complexity and bridge between extremely divergent people, worlds, and ideas so that something new and better can arise.
  • You can sense the possibility of an Alchemical Authenticity that would make you an agent of change simply by being yourself.
Awakening The Crone, the last archetype in the Sequence that is so critical to this evolutionary moment, you will…
  • Learn how to truly see in the dark and be with difficult situations with an increased capacity to surrender to the change that is working its way through you.
  • Know how to let go of what is done, sit with the emptiness and make space for the new pattern that is seeking to emerge.
  • Awaken more fully to your spiritual connection as an important driver in your development.
  • Take your sovereign seat and know for certain that you are a vital part of the unfolding evolutionary moment.
  • Truly partner with the unknown, creative Mystery, and encourage innovation and new opportunities to unfold through you.

When all of the archetypes of The Mysterial Sequence™ have been cultivated, a deep and lasting inner Sacred Marriage takes place and The Mysterial Leader naturally emerges.

It is a beautiful thing to experience and witness!

And just to give you a glimpse of the Mysterial Future that arises when you do this deep work, here are the

Mysterial Leadership capacities that will become your Signature Presence:

“This experience was transformative and gave me the opportunity to awaken a hidden part of myself. I can now embrace my life more peacefully, with fluidity and aliveness. Suzanne and her mindful cohort of coaches has supported my emergence with love, wisdom and a deep presence. I have shared my vulnerability with other genuine women around the world and always felt respected, safe and heard. The Way of the Mysterial Women is for me a powerful path to self-exploration in a sustainable and embodied manner. Today I feel more congruent with my essence, I am more and more able to speak my truth and welcome discomfort with curiosity.”
— Maude

How does Emergence work?


It begins with a proven curriculum.

Our program combines academically sound, rigorous, research-based curriculum with the ageless wisdom traditions, somatic embodiment, the imaginal, and the deep practices of an urban mystery school. The Mysterial Sequence™ pathway provides the most efficient, critical path through the essential work needed to open up unprecedented levels of leadership.

This approach is deeply explored in Suzanne’s three-time award winning book (co-authored alongside Susan Cannon, PhD), The Way of the Mysterial Woman: Upgrading How You Live, Love, and Lead.

Our Proven Program Curriculum


Theory and Research

Combining stimulating theories from innovative thought leaders with our extensive experience and research in women’s leadership development our curriculum qualified for over a decade as a university-certificate program.

Healing Trauma

Using a groundbreaking pathway based on how women actually develop, to sequentially and in a very precise way heal the shadow wounds from earlier childhood, intergenerational and collective traumas.

Integral Approach

Drawing upon the extensive work of Integral practitioners our comprehensive approach addresses all domains of a woman’s experience so that they can see both themselves and the world around them in a more complete way.

Embodiment

Guiding women to access ways of knowing that engage all three centers of intelligence—thinking (head), feeling (heart), and sensing (body)—so that they can bring a holistic understanding to life’s complex issues.

Ritual Process

Engaging the power of ritual to weave together conscious intentions and unconscious, embodied desires and align with energies and dimensions beyond the linear.

Beauty and Imagination

Engaging women’s sensing and feeling natures through beautiful materials, stimulating right brain processes using visual journals, music and images to invite the power of the imagination.

The Alchemical Container

How we hold, engage, catalyze, and support your learning


The Mysterial Leadership Emergence Program has been designed using a comprehensive approach to women’s development that we have spent the past two decades decoding.

You will engage body, heart, mind, and soul on our journey together through the use of cutting-edge research, women’s development, neuroscience, powerful leadership practices, evocative visual images, ritual, and our proven technology of transformation to activate your innate Mysterial Potential.

Consider this less as a program you are setting aside daily life to attend, and more as a powerful transformative container into which you will fully bring together all domains of your experience.

Our time together includes:

An Intimate Alchemical Community

Our cohort will have 12-21 students and together we will create a dynamic transformative community. You will have the opportunity to connect with allies in a collaborative, co-creative learning environment that accelerates growth and builds a web of friendships with other emerging Mysterials around the world. We will tend our collective ‘we space’ engine carefully as it is a powerful, catalytic element in the program.

An Opening Virtual Retreat

We will initiate our Emergence journey together in a virtual Opening Retreat. This will be an opportunity for women to meet one another and for us to ignite our collective field. The session will involve Suzanne’s overview teaching, dyad and triad interactions, personal reflections and whole group conversations.

Whole Circle Sessions with Suzanne

These monthly two-hour sessions will involve meditation, teaching, collective psycho-catalytic ritual and small group exploration together. We will work with the powerful principle of ‘the field’ together in various configurations of smaller flocks, triads. dyads and whole circle dialogues. The sessions will be recorded for those who cannot attend live, but it is highly recommended that you plan to schedule yourself to be present for these sessions as they will be important opportunities to accelerate your development in the collective field.

Flock Sessions with Mysterial Coaches

These monthly two-hour sessions involve deepening together into an intimate circle of women where you can explore each of the archetypes’ shadows and strengths more deeply. They will be facilitated by Mysterial Coaches. You will also work on a Global Intention Project together as you bring your individual Leadership skills together to serve women or girls in need. (see below for more information)

Two Mid-Program Virtual Retreats

At two key junctures in the program – moving from the First Polarity (Mother-Hero) to the second Polarity (Father-Maiden) and moving from the Second Polarity to the Crone – we will have longer three-hour sessions together to acknowledge the deep work already done and prepare for the next phase.

4 night/5 day In-person Closing Retreat

Our 15-month intensive journey will culminate in a powerful closing retreat together at Harmony Hill Retreat Center on the Hood Canal in Washington State, USA. November 30 – December 4, 2022 (Travel, meals & accommodation are not included in the cost for Emergence.) Using ritual, movement, catalytic visual art explorations, and deep conversation together we will prepare for a potent archetypal ritual process of inner sacred marriage and the birth of our full Mysterial essence.

In the event that COVID-19 makes this in-person gathering not possible we will consider postponing by a few months or transferring the retreat into an online experience.

Learning Triads/Dyads

Meeting bi-monthly at a minimum, the intimacy and accountability of these smaller learning partnerships will support you to dig deeper into the Fieldwork explorations of the program. Your learning partner allies will become your homebase container in the larger field of the cohort and a place where you can be encouraged, challenged and supported to become your full Mysterial self.

Fieldwork

The program curriculum is designed to work as much in between the class sessions as during them. It is within the field of your life that you will become an observer of your habitual patterns and engage in the practices that will liberate you from the conditioned responses that no longer serve you.

5 Individual 1-1 Coaching Sessions with a Mysterial Coach

You will have a trained Mysterial Coach as your guide throughout the deep dive of our program to encourage and support your Mysterial emergence. Your coach will help to hold you accountable for the changes you want to make and in 5 focused coaching sessions will assist you to dive under the surface of your conscious awareness and explore the deeper unconscious sabotaging patterns that are blocking the flow of your authentic genius.

Private Online Community – Mighty Networks

This online forum is inviting, beautiful, private and is organized using different topic threads. Here, participants engage with each other between live sessions and this is also where we post the Fieldwork and recordings of the sessions, as well as poetry, images and other inspirational materials.

Mysterial Leadership Practices

You will explore your Conscious Intention for doing this work and clearly articulate and energize this desired future. We will then be able to see more clearly what inner and outer structures are aligned with your Intention and which ones need to be upgraded. You will then create a set of powerful practices for body, mind, heart and soul that will provide an essential and sustainable vessel for your transformative journey. They will become the template for the cultivation of a life-long personal container for well-being.

Global Intention Project (GIP)

Our own liberation is intimately woven together with the liberation of girls and women around the world who are in much less fortunate circumstances than ourselves.

You will learn a process to energize and accelerate the awakening and development of girls and women. You will also have the opportunity to put your emerging leadership capacities into practice in a collaborative project.

You will learn a powerful way to source a project together that truly integrates the Feminine and the Masculine and the Creative Cycle.

Mysterial Assessments

Using online Assessments we will get clarity around your current reality (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) and your innate essence.

  • IEQ9 Enneagram Assessment
  • Integral Quadrant Assessment
  • Mysterial Archetypal Assessment

Individual Human Design Assessment and Coaching with Suzanne

You will each complete an individual Human Design Assessment and receive a 1-1 coaching session with Suzanne, using this powerful lens to zero in on your unique signature presence and precisely identify where there could be blocks to your authentic expression. Human Design is a profoundly transformative system that combines: Astrology, the Chinese I-Ching, the Chakra system and the Kabbala into a profound Science of Differentiation that allows you to understand more specifically your individual uniqueness within the genetic matrix.

The Program Schedule


Our Opening 3-Hour Virtual Retreat is scheduled for Saturday, October 9, 2021.

Each month and for 15 consecutive months (with the exception of August 2022, our integration month), we will meet for:

  • One 2-hour “Whole Circle” session from 11 – 1 pm Pacific time
  • One 2-hour “Flock Circle” small group session (there will be two different time options available: 10:30 am – 12:30 pm PST or 4:30 – 6:30 pm PST)

There will be two 3-hour virtual mid-program retreats and a 4-night/5-day closing in person retreat.


The Emergence Program is open for enrollment just once each year, inviting an intimate cohort of women to unravel from the millennia-old, outdated and limiting patterns – in order to unleash their greatest potential.

The program curriculum is designed to work as much in between the class sessions as during them. It is within the field of your life that you will become an observer of your habitual patterns and engage in the practices that will liberate you from the conditioned responses that no longer serve you.

“As a dedicated self-improvement junkie, I have invested in adult learning classes, seminars and retreats for over 35 years. I’ve signed up for everything from Byron Katie, Rick Hanson, Elizabeth Gilbert and Brene Brown to Wisdom 2.0 mindfulness and wellness workshops – and even committed to a year-long personal intensive in Taos, New Mexico. Working with Suzanne was the most effective and deep work that I have ever done. She gave me the support, resources and tools, empathy and encouragement that I needed to change my old ways of thinking and be my best self out in the world.”

– Cindi, Director of Client Relations / Executive Coach


“Just prior to the Mysterial Emergence Program I was going through another dark night of the soul; struggling both financially and relationally, having just ended a 6 year relationship that was no longer serving and supporting me.

Each time I have passed through a dark passage, I always returned to a sense of great failure in my professional life. I was doing work I absolutely loved, but just could not seem to get ahead financially and find a sense of security to fully support myself.

I had a conversation with Suzanne, and absolutely knew this was the program, the container I needed to be held in the deep dive, but I bumped up against a reoccurring belief that ’I can’t have what I want.’ Even before we began the course, Suzanne held me through that process and worked with me financially to support me to be able to fully say yes to myself and yes to the program.

Through the program I found a greater sense of ground beneath me, a greater self-assurance to be with what is, and a deeper appreciation for the shadow parts of myself that have been working so hard to keep me safe all of these years. My work in the world has broadened, my friendships have deepened, work opportunities have come to me, and my love of Life has expanded. I am deeply grateful for Suzanne, her care, presence and earnest willingness to hold this secure container for all women to come more alive.

Micheline Green, Master Integral Coach

The Emergence Enrollment Process

The choice to enter into the alchemical container of Emergence is an important process of discernment for you and for us.


We have created a 4-step journey that will allow for clarity and commitment to emerge. You do not need to know when you enter this process whether or not this is the right program for you at this time. You just need to open yourself to the discovery.

Step 1:

Watch our July Information Session where we explore:

  • Why women are in the midst of a profound evolutionary imperative to grow into a new expression of wholeness that integrates all the Feminine and Masculine essence.
  • How turning on the developmental tap again is key to personal and professional fulfillment.
  • Why focused shadow work is required for sustainable change and the liberation of our true wisdom, love and power.
  • An overview of the new 15-month Mysterial Leadership Emergence program and hear from previous graduates and mentors.

Step 2:

Complete a brief application (even if you are not quite sure yet if Emergence is for you). After submitting your brief application, you will be invited to a 30-minute interview with Emergence faculty. You will receive an invitation by email with a link to schedule a one-on-one Zoom appointment time. Select a convenient time to interview with a faculty member.

Step 3: 

Meet with a member of the Emergence faculty who will discuss your goals, fit, and whether you are ready to begin the deep work we do inside Emergence. 
Then sleep on it. No, really! You will need time to let the unconscious realms align around your conscious desire.

Step 4:

Make your down payment to secure your place in the program. You will then receive a more in-depth intake assessment to complete and be welcomed into Emergence!

Suzanne is a master of transformational learning, a thought leader on resilient leadership, and co-author of the triple award-winning book The Way of the Mysterial Woman: Upgrading How You Live, Love and Lead. Her work is dedicated to awakening women to their full potential, urging them to the edge of their own evolution – to be the ones who are able to lead us into a new cultural paradigm.

After decades of work as a senior leadership consultant for Fortune 100 companies, Suzanne recognized the absence of leadership programs designed to address the way women develop. She experienced firsthand how women were caught between a rock and a hard place; women who had succeeded in the masculine domain, but who had lost connection with their feminine ground of being. Seeing this gap, she left her consulting practice to find out what it means to midwife the next level of our potential as women and as a culture.

Over fifteen years of research led Suzanne to discover The Mysterial Way – an emerging leadership model that integrates both Feminine and Masculine capacities, embraces women’s wholeness and addresses all the domains of her unique experience. This multi-faceted, in-depth approach to her work rests on 30 years of study and practice in a grounded spiritual path that remains a vital aspect of her life today.

Just as she and her co-author had completed the first draft of their book and were ready to launch new programs, her beloved husband committed suicide. Within a few months everything she had held most precious was cleaved away like a giant iceberg falling into the sea – and she was standing on the edge of a very new life. She experienced how the way of the Mysterial Woman held up, and this transformational journey cemented her commitment to making this pathway available to as many women as possible.

Through her coaching practice, online programs, corporate workshops, retreats, speaking engagements, and acclaimed book, Suzanne supports women who are ready to lead in an entirely new way – to show up as creative agents of change in this turbulent time on our planet, with courage and commitment, resilience and grace.

Frequently Asked Questions


Yes! We totally understand the challenges of not being a ‘tech native’. Suzanne has spent the last 6 years learning powerful ways to bring the online classes to women around the world, having initially taught in-person programs. Here are the ways that we make this easy:

  • The materials are always accessible on the Mighty Networks Member webpages – you can stream them live (play the video or just the audio) or you can download them to have on a device (smartphone, ipad, ipod, etc.) so you can listen while on a walk, driving, etc. 
  • There are written materials such as extra reading, as well as the ‘Fieldwork’ that summarizes ways to further embody the learning and habit changes. 

The variety of learning channels means you’ll be able to digest the material in ways that work for you. You can learn in a way that works easily with your schedule (not to mention there won’t be any jet lag from traveling to be with the group!). 

All of the live calls are recorded and posted to the Member space within 24 hours. You have the option to listen to the audio, or watch the video. Unlike other programs where you can just catch up with the videos later, this program is highly interactive and we encourage you to attend the sessions live as often as possible. When schedule conflicts require you to miss a few sessions you will have the video back-up.

This program is Suzanne’s major focus, and she will be very engaged with all the students. Every student will have a 1-1 Human Design coaching session with her during the program. See above for more information about this session.

We use Mighty networks as our powerful community learning platform. This becomes a rich place of learning and sharing with one another between sessions.

Yes. In this program we redefine leadership from a position or role you play to the quality of your presence and influence in the domains of your life.

You aren’t alone. Many women are afraid to even imagine a possible future outside of the life they are leading because it would mean acknowledging how their lives really aren’t working for them today. Fear of change and resistance to change are the psyche’s natural way of keeping things the same and they create a kind of immunity to change. So fear is not necessarily bad or a reason not to do the program. In fact it can be a sign that lets you know you are going in the right direction. Let your aspirations, your passion, your hopes — not fear or the inner critic — be in charge of the decision to sign up.

Use all of your ways of knowing to sense, feel and think about whether this is the right commitment for you at this time. Start with the hara (gut center of intelligence) then move to the heart and then bring in the head. 
Hara (Body Intelligence) Check in with your body: How does the idea of registering land in your body — good and exciting? Body is energized, expansive or excited? These are all good signs. 
Heart (Emotional Intelligence) Check in with your feelings: When you consider the program what feelings are ignited? Joy, excitement, hope, possibility, fear of change. All good signs.
Head ( Cognitive Intelligence) Check in with your thoughts: Listen to your own wisdom. Is the ‘you are not good enough’ inner critic the one giving you guidance and saying that you aren’t an emerging Mysterial, or you won’t be able to ‘do it right’ or that the time has to be just right for you to do this? Using the right brain what images of the future arise for you when you imagine doing the program? Does this program align well with your dreams of the future?

Women who have experienced the Emergence program report that they feel more confident, happy and clear about their strengths. They find it easier to delegate, work more effectively with others, and can identify what will help them experience more success and fulfillment. They always report both internal and external gains in their personal and professional life. There is a saying that ‘wherever you go there you are’. Women have lived for far too long with the split between who are they are at home and who they are in their professional lives. 

Women who work in corporate jobs experience what it means to bring more of themselves to the office. They recognize that caring for themselves and others they work with is not just a feel good idea but leads to more creative and productive teams. They recognize that they can’t do everything and learn that their No’s make space for important Yes’s. They experience more freedom to express themselves authentically. If more women showed up like this is their how they live, love and lead we would have a very different world indeed!

We often see the vessel of our lives as way too full and can’t imagine adding one more thing. This work is actually about increasing the size of your vessel so that you can be more present and available to receive all the elements of your complex life. The truth is that there is no perfect time to do this inner upgrade (just like with our computers) that liberates the next level of our wisdom, love and power. So we often just have to dive in.  

We invite you to consider this program more as a container that comes around the life that you are leading already, rather than something you are going out to learn. The way of the Mysterial woman is literally a way of being and doing that is expressed in your everyday life as opposed to something outside of your direct experience that you have to go and get!

An average ballpark would be about 30-45 minutes/day on morning / evening practices (you likely already have some of these in place, e.g. meditation/journaling/quiet time). These help form a deeply-supportive container for the transformation.

Then every 2 weeks there is a new Fieldwork document, which has a mix of reading, rituals, online community posts/reading, journaling reflection, etc. It would be wise to plan 4-6 hours over the two weeks, to really engage with this material. Some women break that up into daily time (15-30 minutes/day), or spread it out over a few days throughout each week, or just chunk out a few hours each weekend, all depending on their schedule and preferences.

The program has a nice organizing effect, bringing all of the practices into the container of the program so it’s within the field of your life, rather than something you need to add into an already-full life. It’s not like a grad school commitment – but you will feel like you graduated to a higher level of consciousness and functionality in your own life and in the world.
