The CourseRoom™️ - The CourseRoom is a social learning event for men and women. This movement is centered around storytelling and exploring world topics.

InfluenceHer is for women of color who desire respite and care from the challenges that come with being on the front lines of leadership. Through practices of guided discussion, curriculum, and connection each woman will explore who she is in
the role of woman, leader, healer, and activist. This nurturing space is designed to allow women to replenish, rest, heal, and claim her story while she receives support for her mind, body, soul, and spirit. As a result of this offering, her freedom deepens while the strength, beauty, and power of the woman is polished and called forward. She reclaims her path, and returns to the world with a renewed sense of self, a deeper understanding of her influence, and a renewed desire to do her best work in the world.
During this cohort offering, women from all walks of life explore leadership by looking at her ESSENCE, her SABBATH, and HOW she is being and leading in the world. Through practices of pause, guided discussion, curriculum, and connection we look at our roles, our responsibilities, our mind, our heart, our body, and our rhythm in the world. We will let go of what is no longer serving us and women will arise from this experience with renewed connection to self and clarity of next steps in our journey. Our sister-leaders from every path will return to her work in more brilliant, generous, powerful ways, and sacred ways.
