  • Use body awareness to inform you of hidden information that you can use to lead at work and in love
  • Turn reactivity into curiosity
  • Use accountability to get the more difficult tasks done

    "What is Your Real Work?" Professional Development for Women

    "Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it."

    - Buddha

    RETURNING 2014! Blair runs the "What is Your Real Work?" Professional Development workshops for women on a seasonal basis, see scheduled upcoming dates below. Workshops can be attended on a singular basis, however, the entire series is designed so that by the end of it, each woman will emerge with: a greater sense of personal authority; a clear path to satisfying work and pleasure; a tribe of support backing her; confidence in her ability to direct her life, and an array of effective tools she can use to get her where she wants to go, or to get moving again when she gets stuck.

    Blair will schedule the series below privately for organizations or small groups of women that want to participate in seasonal pieces of growth together. Call for more info.

    I. What is your real work? An exploration of sisterhood, self-expression and personal power in the "work"place

    October , Fri eve -Sunday afternoon

    An intimate weekend workshop for women exploring the themes of power, growth and self-expression as it pertains to work, and I mean that word (work) on all the levels that it exists. Whether you have a literal job that you would like to feel more connected to, or you are moving in a new and unknown direction, this workshop is an opportunity to come together as conscious women to connect with each other, nature and ourselves, for the purpose of exploring the role of work in our lives. We will play with and create tools to help you:

    • Get clear on what it is you want to express in the world
    • Explore the notion of "work" and your relationship to it
    • Stir up opportunities for work that inspire you
    • Broaden your faith in yourself and your ability to manifest and accomplish
    • Move through the world with greater confidence, ease and grace

    Where: SpiritPlay Studio in Woodstock, NY.
    Cost: $600 includes organic, homemade, healthful food and dorm-style housing in the studio. Rooms are available at an extra cost. A list of nearby B and B's is available for those wanting to stay off site.

    II. Holding Your Own, A Workshop for Women

    The second in a series of workshops for women revolving around "work" related issues (see description of first in series above, attendance at first not required), this workshop usually is in the winter and utilizes the cold, stark landscape of winter to explore what it means to hold one's own: inside yourself and in relationship. Do you lose your voice and/or composure in arguments? Do you spend more time than needed in a state of inner collapse, with negative thoughts about yourself running the show? Do you want to stop conversations that go in a loop and get you nowhere? In sisterhood we will increase personal freedom, self-confidence and authority at work and in relationship by practicing negotiating difference from a grounded and non-reactive place. We will go within to the source of our inner strength and cultivate the stillness that winter reflects, accessing the parts of ourselves that help us to stand strong in our leadership. We will join in a shared and in-depth exploration of the following questions:

    • What causes me to collapse into self hatred?
    • What is the difference between "direct" and "mean-spirited"?
    • How do I negotiate difference in relationship, without getting stuck in old patterns and reactive emotions?
    • What can winter teach me about transcending difference, transforming loneliness and achieving my goals?
    • How do I keep the fire of hope alive if and when it seems like nothing is happening?

    When: January, weekend workshop, Fri eve -Sunday afternoon
    Where: SpiritPlay Studio in Woodstock, NY -- 2 hours North of NYC
    Cost /accommodations: $600 includes home-cooked, organic (wherever possible) healthful meals and snacks, and dorm style accommodations (mattresses and airbeds are supplied, bedding and pillows must be brought). There are many B&B's nearby for those interested in staying off-site.

    III. Character Development

    The third in a series of workshops related to work (series attendance not required), Character Development is all about engaging your creativity and achieving effectiveness in work and relationship. What role are you still enacting from the family play? Are you stuck in good girl, troublemaker, superflake, or black sheep? We will focus on the inner work of clearly identifying the "scripts" you have been taught to follow by family and others in your life, craft new roles, and practice letting go. We will focus on discernment (being able to distinguish what is healthy for you) and the outer work of creating the best types of environments, clothing and conversations that will get you where you want to be, feeling great about yourself and the kind of impact you are making in the world around you. We will join in sisterhood for a shared and in-depth exploration of:

    • What is integrity?
    • What are the roles I enjoy embodying most and what are the default roles I resort to that work against me?
    • What is the impact I am looking to have in my immediate world, and on the world in general?
    • What are the talents, styles and flavors that I want to use to enhance my presence and accent my expression of myself in the world?
    • How can I practice engaging narratives, archetypes and other aspects of my creativity in becoming who I want to be?
    • How do I establish and commit to honoring my priorities?

    When: May, weekend workshop, Fri eve -Sunday afternoon
    Where: SpiritPlay Studio in Woodstock, NY -- 2 hours North of NYC
    Cost /accommodations: $600 includes home-cooked, organic (wherever possible) healthful meals and snacks, and dorm style accommodations (mattresses and airbeds are supplied, bedding and pillows must be brought). There are many B&B's nearby for those interested in staying off-site.

    Work Workshops Series


    IV. The Work of Rest: PLEASURE AND PLAY

    The fourth in a series of workshops related to work (series attendance not required), The Work of Rest is perhaps the most important of the series! Are you addicted to work and struggle with how to make useful choices in the daily juggle of work, family, creativity, alone time? What is a healthy work/life balance for YOU? In a country in which we all are always working too hard, it is imperative that we learn how to rest, temper anxiety, experience true and deep pleasure, and know how to play. We will join in sisterhood for a shared and in-depth exploration of:

    • What keeps me from experiencing pleasure, and how can I authorize myself to move towards it?
    • What is the function of play in my life, and how can I engage more fully in it?
    • What is the relationship between sexuality and power?
    • What is the right work / life balance for ME and what structures can I use to effectively keep it?

    When: Late July / August 4 day weekend, Thurs - Sunday afternoon
    Where: SpiritPlay Studio in Woodstock, NY -- 2 hours North of NYC
    Cost /accommodations: $600 includes home-cooked, organic (wherever possible) healthful meals and snacks, and dorm style accommodations (mattresses and airbeds are supplied, bedding and pillows must be brought). There are many B&B's nearby for those interested in staying off-site.
