Life Coaching with Female Inmates

$1,850 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 34 people in 38 months
I have been volunteering my time to teach yoga (including yoga nidra & meditation) to the women at the Richmond City Jail for the last year with the hope of providing them with a way to increase their self-awareness, undo deeply held tension, and gain a sense of self that is other than what they've experienced potentially throughout their entire lives.

By way of teaching and discussion, I began working with two women who are currently doing a level of inner work that makes them a great fit for 1:1 life coaching. In life coaching, we unearth limiting thoughts and beliefs that quite literally have them stuck, that have shaped all of their decisions and actions leading up to where they are now. We work to undo that thinking and to begin to proactively create tangible steps that help them move closer to the life they hope to have.

In 2016, I donated $5,700 worth of 1:1 life coaching to these two women. It is my wish to be able to continue these sessions with regularity as well as add in additional time for other inmates in 2017.

Your donation of any amount will help me make this possible.

Thank you all for your generous contributions to this effort. I just got two new life coaching candidates referred to me by the staff at the jail so I'm upping my ante!

Please help spread the word so that I can continue to do this valuable work in an ongoing way with these three women. And if you're in a position that allows you to be able to provide continued, regular support, don't hesitate! :)

Also - I'll be posting a new blog this week about my work with my first inmate coaching client -- if you're not already signed up for my newsletter, you can sign up here: http://eepurl.com/bLA-yn

Over 50% of my goal has been raised by so many amazing people. Feeling so grateful and completely supported in this work with female inmates at the Richmond City Jail. My mind is already blown seeing the progress my first coaching client has made in just a few weeks... If you feel inclined, a donation of any amount will support continued coaching with her as well as adding additional clients. And feel free to SHARE! <3
