Starts March 8th
After two years of varying degrees of isolation, and all of its impacts, we must insist on proximity and togetherness.
We have to find ways to come back to ourselves and each other.
When it feels that there is nothing to come back to, no culture to return to, no social fabric that still exists; When it feels that coming together is exhausting and mystifying;
How do we come back home?
We start with our individual nervous systems. We start with understanding what originates within us.
Then we build our capacity and stamina for social engagement.
Next we build our capacity and stamina for conflict.
We charge ourselves with the resonance of reconciliation, forgiveness, and love within ourselves.
This is not skipping to solution-oriented thinking. This is not spiritual bypassing.
This involves grief, anger, and sorrow. As well as joy, pleasure and faith.
Many of us have experienced painful and unexpected ruptures during these last two years.
The lid of the pressure cooker tightened and earlier relational and attachment challenges rose to the surface galvanizing some relationships and ending others.
The prism of real world relating requires that we understand differentiation and interconnectedness. We understand when we need to separate, and when and perhaps how we can come together.
Can you hold your position while listening to others?
Are you willing to change your mind?
Do you believe universally that your intuition is correct? Can you find your intuition when you need it?
Are you aware of cues that tell you when you are sliding into habit rather than authentic truth?
Jaguar energy is ferocious, decisive, relaxed and powerful.
We will never outrun our mammalian nature and needs.
So we must dedicate ourselves to understanding and committing to return to these mammalian instincts in a culture that is fast convincing us that somehow we can outsmart them.
We don’t know what the future holds.
How will this affect our children, and their children?
Will we choose the earth?
Will we choose each other- even those whose realities we cannot see?
Are we willing to change?
The theme of this Jaguar is RELATING: dating, parenting, family, friendship, professional and romance.

No problem at all. We’ve had thousands of women take this course, and very few were able to come to every live webinar (and some couldn’t attend any live, because of work and other commitments). The videos in this course are meant to be watched sometime during the week—you’ll get a replay of each video within 24 hours of the live call. You’ll receive information and experiential exercises in each video that you can work with all week.
