Welcome to The School of Sacred Practice.
As a woman in the business of helping and healing and coaching and teaching, your want your life and your work to feel expansive and infused with the fullness of you. You want to feel connected and alive and to feel abundant and generous. To do this, you need more for yourself - more deep nourishment and connection through inward facing practices that deeply restore. You've likely known this your whole life and you've turned that knowing off to some degree or another because you were told you weren't allowed, that you wanted too much.
At the same time, you were told you needed to give more, to do more, to be more in ways that were not innate to you. And you are passionate and want to make a lasting contribution to the world, but the ways you've habitually taken action or worked have depleted your innate resources instead of working in harmony with your natural rhythms to amplify your energy and your work.
The School of Sacred Practice offers you a dynamic space to amplify your sense of vitality and abundance, listen for your own deep wisdom, and from this place of aliveness and alignment, move into truly inspired action.
Your true nature knows a different way.
There are telltale signs that this work, this sacred container, would really be delicious for you.
You have pushed to the point of tired and overwhelmed and you are feeling depleted as a result. At the same time, there are bills to pay and no time to slow down (in your mind). I so get it, I've been there and this model? A model of honoring your natural rhythms of action and rest is the only sustainable way forward. It's time to tend the Sacred Resource of your own time, energy and desires.
You find yourself struggling with your resources. Feeling like there isn't enough money, or there are messes to be addressed that you will do tomorrow (but that day never comes)? This is an opportunity to yes, get the practicalities of your financial situation sorted, but even more important, this is an invitation to heal and come into a deeper, more nourishing relationship with your core, sacred resources.
You doubt yourself on a regular basis and end up in a state of inaction because you doubt your own power, authority and worth. This is your invitation to cultivate greater self-worth through a deeper relationship with your innate wisdom and experience the real magic of trusting yourself and taking action, which feeds your self-worth and your self-trust.
No matter what transformation you are seeking with your resources in the coming year, I invite you to dive deep into sacred practice. Are you ready to show up with conviction and consistency for what matters to you? Are you ready to experience the depth of your strength and your capacity to transform?
Join me in The School of Sacred Practice to come to greater understanding, to heal and ultimately, to experience results that matter to you.
Why do I believe so deeply?
Let me tell you.
Hi, I'm Nona Jordan: I'm a mother, master coach, yoga teacher, energy worker and lover of the world. This is my husband and I, out in the bush in Zambia, where we currently live. One of the best outcomes of Sacred Practice for me has been this: a healthy, loving and vibrant relationship with a really beautiful man. (There was no reason for me to have this in my life.)
I grew up as a kid who struggled to finish and see things through to the end. Things were already tough in my family around the time of this picture, when I was just four. I don't remember a time when I was young that I didn't struggle with self-esteem and belief in myself and my place in the world. Trauma and family alcoholism deeply impacted me -- my first sacred practices of yoga and meditation (began in college) became a misguided attempt to try and transcend my experience - another form of addiction and numbing out. In popular terms, I was absolutely looking to bypass my own pain and suffering with my practices.
In my late 20's I had a powerful vision (one of the first inklings of Medicine Visions) that inspired me to stop drinking. My aspiration and my desire in that moment was to be fully alive, to not try and put space between myself and life. This intention, and that vision, has been working in my life ever since and as such, my practice has become developing intimacy with ALL of life - the joy, the sorrow, the challenge and the triumph. It is deeply satisfying and it is the "secret" to the ways I've changed and how much I get done. I keep showing up - for my inward facing practices which help me show up for my outward facing practices of engaging with the world in my own rhythm.
Sacred Practice is transformational - it will support you in being the woman you are, and that you are becoming. Sacred Practice will teach you the power of your own true nature and the innate sacred resources you have to work with. Sacred Practice help you to stay present, listen for the next step and then take inspired action over and over, in service to your deepest desires. Sacred Practice will teach you devotion toward your own need for recovery and rest to be the woman you are, and the woman you are becoming.
The School of Sacred Practice is a year-long school committed to creating change in unconventional and radical ways. In a world that rests on the false promise of instant transformation and instant results, Sacred Practice offers a reliable way to be your own healer and guide by supporting you in attuning to your own deep wealth of resources and to keep showing up for the woman you are, and for the woman you are becoming.
This is the magic of Sacred Practice.
During the year, you will receive
- Four, month-long deep dives into Sacred Practices that will support deep healing, clarity and inspiration with your resources: in 2018, our themes will be the sacred resources of money, your Self and your sense of worth, your capacity for action and the deep magic of rest. You will work with different practices, as your own wisdom dictates, and, as a group we will utilize the Sacred Practices of journey work, active imagination and breathwork as unconventional and revolutionary Sacred Practices to access your healing, clarity, wisdom and right-action.
- Each four-week intensive will include:
Four Sunday Soul Teaching eMails: An email delivery of key ideas that will invite you to tap your own deep wisdom as well as prompts and invitations for you to explore the changes you would like to experience through Sacred Practice.
Four Monday Centering In Calls: On Monday we will gather virtually via video conference to hone in on intentions, questions, and practices for the coming week as well as acknowledge and celebrate what is shifting and changing. This alone will change you and support you in getting the right things done in accordance with your vision.
Four Wednesday Office Hours: Wednesday is an opportunity to ask questions, offer insights, process what you are learning through practice, and to affirm the vitality of the work you are doing. This will be done live, on Facebook, in a private group, so everyone has the benefit of hearing your wisdom, your questions and your insights.
Four Friday Receiving the Sacred Calls: Again, we will gather via video conference to journey to liminal realms via breath, drumming, or imagination with specific questions and requests that have bubbled up as a result of our practice. These journeys may focus on healing, clarity, or connecting to deep wisdom archetypes that will bring you connection to your own wisdom and the magical support of your guides and allies.
- 4 Integration + Check in Calls between intensives, to keep you moving with your intentions and your own sacred practice. This is an opportunity to connect with the circle, to check in with yourself and to realign your energy and actions with your intentions.
- In addition to the 4 intensives, 4 Integration calls and 2 workshops, you will also receive individual support:
One Medicine Vision, based on your intentions for the year. Energy work and visioning to support you and hold you.
2, 30-minute individual mentoring/coaching sessions to focus on your journey of Sacred Practice in 2018.
A private virtual gathering space to connect with your sisters throughout the year and receive support.
Registration closes December 29th, 2017
The 2018 Trajectory
The 2018 workshops and intensives focus on an overarching theme of Sacred Practices that foster healing, clarity and wise action with our most sacred resources: from tending and mending our relationship to money, cultivating a greater sense of worthiness, affirming our capacity to engage in wise action and do hard things and finally finishing with offering our bodies and souls rest and recovery (the very source of our wealth).
Workshop One: Welcome Circle + Visioning
January 4th, 2018
This 90-minute workshop is a portal - a celebratory welcoming of the new year and the opening of The School of Sacred Practice. We will gather for blessing, introductions and end by asking for guidance and direction in visioning journey work that will set the stage for your year of Sacred Practice. I will also share the Community Medicine Vision with the group on this call to anchor the energy into our circle.
Mark your calendar: 10am pacific/1 pm eastern time
Intensive One: Mend and Tend
January 22 - February 16, 2018
Tend and Mend is sacred practice devoted to tending your sacred resource of money. This intensive will focus on creating financial integrity and building nourishing habits.
From surfacing and working with unconscious money beliefs, to cleaning up financial debris with courage and compassion, this month is an opportunity to cultivate a stronger relationship of care and ease with your financial resources.
This is, without a doubt, one of the most challenging sacred practices and also one of the most important. In conjunction with healing the past, we will look to the future and also ask for deep support and infusions of magic from your unseen guides and allies. As you receive financial healing and clarity, you will be ready to move into the future with compassion, courage and grace.
You will leave this intensive with meaningful, sacred practices to help you engage with your financial resources in ways that support your values.
Intensive Two: Dwell in Worth
April 16 - May 11, 2018
Dwell in Worth is an opportunity to go deeper with sacred practices that help you experience a greater sense of your worth - and the depth of your innate spiritual resources.
Worth, or lack of experiencing it, drives so much of the hiding, shame and disconnect in so many of the women I work with and talk to. Amplifying a sense of worthiness and personal authority in every woman I know is at the heart of my work.
You can cultivate and practice dwelling in worth, expanding your current sense of self-worth. Dwell in Worth offers you a space to practice experiencing yourSelf and your worth in natural, instinctual ways. This is your invitation to root more deeply into the truth of your innate worthiness by creating and working with practices that support your dignity, truth and power - the heart of worthiness.
You will complete this month of sacred practice being on your own side with fierce kindness and conviction that you are absolutely worth it.
Intensive Three: Do the Work
August 13 - September 7, 2018
Intensive Four: Radical Rest
October 22 - November 16th, 2018
Do the Work is an opportunity to explore the sacred practice of aligned and inspired action.
In this sacred practice, you will deepen your respect for your own rhythms and work to take an idea from inspiration to fruition aligned with your energy. You, as a creator -- are a gorgeous expression of nature. During this intensive, you will celebrate and work with your rhythm of growth and manifestation to get your work into the world.
With curiosity and fierce compassion for ourselves, we will travel the cycle of growth and manifestation to engage with the sacred practice of doing the work. We will call on support from seen and unseen allies to clear the path for success energetically and practically.
You will complete this month with an appreciation for your capacity to show up.
Radical Rest is an opportunity to allow yourself the sacred practice of restoration.
All success, all action, all manifestation happens in your gloriously wise physical body and let's face it, you need restoration for your body and soul. At the same time, rest is such a challenge. I would go so far as to say that deep rest is one of the most difficult Sacred Practices for women to offer themselves.
This is an opportunity to surrender your resistance and orient yourself toward deep rest to restore your nervous system, to attune to the wisdom of your body, and to connect to Source herself. In doing nothing "productive" I promise you will return to your normal rhythms with new perspectives, incredible insight and a body and soul ready to engage in meaningful ways.
You will complete this intensive feeling centered, grounded and cherished.
Final Workshop: Celebration + Closing the Circle | December 27, 2018
This 90-minute workshop is a celebratory honoring of our year together in The School of Sacred Practice. We will gather for blessing, introspective, reflection on what has changed for each of you and finally, a closing of the circle.
Mark your calendar: 10am pacific/1 pm eastern time
Between workshops and intensives will be interludes: time to continue engaging with your sacred practices while still being held by the energy and container of the circle. These are opportunities to catch up, to integrate and to show up for yourself in meaningful ways. Wednesday Office hours will continue to be available, as will the forum for connection and support at any time. Interludes are a wonderful time to schedule your 2, 30-minute individual calls as well.
February 20 - April 14 | May 14 - August 12 | September 8 - October 21 | November 17 - December 26
Let's Recap. You will receive:
- 2, 90-minute workshops to begin and end our work together, to create the sacred space that holds each of you as part of The School of Sacred Practice.
- 4 Integration calls between intensives to check in with yourself, and the group, to integrate the work you are doing in Sacred Practice.
- 16 Centering In Calls, 4 during each intensive to build the habit of articulating and grounding your energy and actions in what is working and where you are going.
- 16 Receiving the Sacred Calls, 4 during each intensive to explore unconventional practices that heal, clarify and change you from the inside out.
- Sacred inquiry, storytelling and invitations to be present to your own wisdom and plenty of opportunities to ask questions, integrate and celebrate the shifts that you experience with your sacred resources.
- Individual support via individual energy work as well as 2, 30-minute 1:1 sessions to support you in your own journey with your sacred resources.
- Ongoing support via a secret, and sacred, online space. This is available throughout the year for you so you can touch in and connect and be supported during not only the Intensives, but during Interludes as well.
Frequently Asked, Now Answered
+ Why is the focus for 2018 Resources?
I'm going to be frank -- our global relationship to resources is bleak.Offering this series of courses at this juncture is MY sacred practice. It is a topic where I certainly have a lot of experience and knowledge, and yet, in the current climate of super storms, crazy fires, and climate change deniers as well as the overt bias toward the masculine and the fact that girls and women are still devalued in big and small ways, well for me, this is always a timely exploration and opportunity for healing and clear action.
Many of the women I serve have an ambivalent or a fractious relationship to money and their other resources. Women often unconsciously devalue themselves because it's the water we swim in. I offer these courses in the spirit of healing, clarity and empowerment.
Misogyny is certainly systemic and "in the air we breathe" and, yet there is great opportunity to devote ourselves to the sacred practice of freeing ourselves from the forced ideas that we aren't good with money, or business, that we can't rest, that our intuition, female bodies and emotions make us less valuable, that everyone else comes before us, that we are not worthy of what we desire... you get the point. None of these things are true and, I may not be able to change the over culture (yet), but I can invite as many women as I know to devote themselves to tending their resources, and our collective resources, as vital, valuable and worthy of fierce protection. Because that is true. Women have every right to be seen and treated as equals, not exploited and devalued and dismissed -- first and foremost, by themselves.
With sacred practice we change the paradigm from within-- our natural resources and feminine qualities become partners with the masculine to create a world where all resources are nourished and amplified instead of destroyed. It starts in the hearts, minds and sacred practice of women everywhere.
+ Will there be energy work to support the courses?
Oh, I am SO glad you asked. Yes. I will do a group Medicine Vision to create a strong energetic container to support our collective desire for change and transformation and, each of the women who join will also have an individual piece of energy work that will be provided for their year of Sacred Practice. If you are unfamiliar with the energy work and visioning that I offer, please do read more. In essence, a Medicine Vision is part intuitive vision and part energy work. The intuitive vision is a love letter to the group from the Divine on the adventure that awaits you, while the energy work anchors our intentions into the group energy body as we move through sacred practice.
+ What kind of results can I expect?
I think it's wise to answer this by telling you who this is likely not going to be suited for:
- This is not for you if you are looking for prescriptive "solutions" to the challenges you face. So, if you are wanting a detailed plan on how to tap into a 6-figure business, become a millionaire, game the system or in any other way want to fix, mend or soothe yourself through seeking external validation this is not for you. I deeply believe in guiding you to have, and to trust, your own experience and your own wisdom.
- This is not for you if aren't interested in accessing the wealth of wisdom available through connection to the divine, to your intuition and to elements of life that science simply cannot explain... yet. Sacred practice is, at it's very essence, a spiritual and personal exploration of how you move through the world and practicing in fresh new ways to access healing, clarity, freedom and personal authority.
- It might go without saying, however, this is a group experience. If you don't feel comfortable in groups, particularly online groups, this really won't work for you. Groups thrive on each person showing up and being present - you miss out on so much if you aren't there.
- Boy do I love insight, but it means next to nothing without action. This is not about sitting back and hiding and certainly it's not about simply trying to visualize change or ask for magic to happen... magically. Be prepared for the sacred practice of consistent, wise action, sister. So, all that being said, The School of Sacred Practice is ultimately a safe-harbor to face your most pressing challenges with grace and grit in a community that is supportive. In turn, this will help you trust yourself, trust life and live a life that is far more aligned with your values and embrace that life IS, in fact, a series of moments of sacred practice.
Your results? You will experience transformation in your relationship to yourself and to the themes of The School. My experience is that growth spills out and over into our lives in surprising ways. What that can translate into is less anxiety, greater clarity, more aligned and consistent action, better communication and marketing leading to more clients and a growing income, paying off debt, saving more money... it will depend on your focus, but I will be holding the space for you to experience the transformation that you are seeking.
+ What time are the live events?
So, we just moved to Africa and so I reserve the right to change times depending on feedback from the first course (and internet connectivity at different times here).
Right now, here is the schedule:
- Monday Centering in Calls will be held at 9am pacific/12 pm eastern time
- Wednesday Live Facebook Q&A will be held at 5am pacific/8 am eastern time. This thread will be devoted to questions and thoughts related to the current week's work with the sacred practice. I will be live on the thread for an hour and then, I will still answer questions on that thread however, not in real time.
- Friday Receiving the Sacred Calls will be held at 10am pacific/1 pm eastern time.
All calls will be recorded and made available to you on a special class page that is password protected, so, if you miss a call you will have a recording to listen to.
+ Do you offer refunds?
When you choose The School of Sacred Practice, you are saying yes to a life-changing journey and I am with you every step of the way. I hold my investment in you and the group of women who will gather with you for every course, sacred. There are no refunds and the investment is non-transferrable. Let me tell you more about this policy.
The nature of an investment is to create abundance - to plant seeds, trusting that the seed will germinate, sprout, grow and blossom - and spread the bounty farther than you can possibly imagine. I fully expect that will be the case for you. I want as many women as possible to know their power and strength through The School of Sacred Practice. That is the nature of investing our energy - and the money you invest helps you put your resources of time and energy into being present for the sacred practice. As such, when you choose to invest in yourself, make sure you are all in. I would love to walk with you every step of the way.
Do you still have questions?
If you have other questions that I can answer for you to determine if the courses in The School of Sacred Practice are for you, please reach out. I want you to make the right decision for you.
I would love to have you! Registration closes December 29th, 2017. Join The School of Sacred Practice.
