January 8, 2023 - Freedom to Dream

What would you do if you had every resource at your disposal?


If you knew you could only succeed, what would you do?


In this small-group coaching session, clarify your vision, expand your mindset, and explore what's possible!

Previous Second Sunday Sessions:

December 11 - Giving and Receiving

You may enjoy giving, BUT how are you at receiving? 👀


They say it is better to give than receive, and many of my clients and friends with time in recovery are quite adept at giving of themselves in service, time, and energy. But they struggle to receive love, help, and support from others. 🎁

The ability to graciously receive permeates all aspects of our lives and is not just limited to receiving holiday gifts 😊

"No"vember - Setting Boundaries

October 9 - Openness in October

Where have you shut down or closed yourself off in life? What would it mean to be more open in your life?


Openness can mean different things to different people, but during our small-group coaching session at 5 p.m. CT on Sunday, October 9th, we'll discuss some common ways we close ourselves off and how to open (or re-open) ourselves.  Ask yourself: 

Have you stopped speaking up in a relationship?  

Have you been avoiding a person or task? 

Where have you started to tell yourself "Oh well, it won't happen until next year..." or "The holidays are almost here - no one will want to do that now..."

During fall, we tend to shut down, to go inside and prepare for hibernation. Our brains want to get cozy and stay safe. But life doesn't stop just because the temperature has dropped a few degrees!


Yes, we are in the final quarter of the year, but that does not mean it's over - it means you still have time to live your best life and create your desired reality!

Are you willing to make another push to finish 2022 strong?

September 11 - Subtract in September

September marks the transition from summer to fall, from long hot days to shorter, cooler days, the leaves turning colors, the beginning of fall semesters…

Just as the seasons change, we are constantly evolving. Just as the trees release their leaves, we too can let go of the things that no longer serve us. 


What can you release in September? What is no longer serving you?


If you're ready to release the old and welcome change, join me Sunday, September 11th, 2022, to Subtract in September during our Second Sunday group session.


We will discuss and examine habits and patterns that no longer serve us.  This is an area in which I’ve done deep work for myself, and my clients frequently struggle with it, too.


I will share part of my recovery story and other life changes I've made that involved subtracting so that things could add up. We will discuss a few ways to change and release the patterns that no longer serve you.

August 14 - Boost your Body Image

In August, we will discuss and examine this very-close-to-my-heart topic: how we speak, think about, and treat our bodies.  This is an area in which I’ve done deep work for myself, and my clients and yoga students frequently struggle with it, too.


I will share part of my journey to improved body image with you Sunday and walk you through a few of my favorite ways to improve your relationship with your body.

July 10 - Free Yourself

How can you create more freedom in your own life?  Join me to discuss a few strategies for creating more independence and openness, leading to more time, space, and energy!  

June - Improve Your Self-Talk

How we speak about ourselves - to ourselves and to others - shapes our reality.  How do you speak to yourself?  This is an area in which I’ve done deep work for myself, and while it has not been easy, it has been worth it! I will share part of my story with you Sunday as well as strategies to improve your own self-talk.

May 8 - How do you nurture yourself?

So many of us easily nurture others but forget to care for ourselves. Is that you or someone you know?  

On May 8, Mother's Day, learn which areas of your life need more attention and care and how to nurture yourself in order to grow toward your dreams! 

Overview: Second Sundays is a monthly small-group coaching session, hosted over Zoom (so you can attend from anywhere), from 5:00-6:00 p.m. CT on the second Sunday of each month.

The sessions generally follow the below format:

  • Introduction to monthly theme (topics will include mindfulness, physical movement, self-compassion, and body image),

  • Guided gentle exercise (light physical movement, including stretching, to connect you to your body),

  • Guided writing and goal-setting exercise related to monthly theme,

  • Group discussion (there will be no requirement to share, but sharing will be encouraged!),

  • Opportunity for spot coaching on your goals or challenges, and

  • Guided mindfulness exercise to anchor you into your goals/vision for the following month.

To encourage sharing among the group, space is limited to 15 attendees.

(If you’ve attended Yoga for Self-Love or Design YOU in ’22 with Lily previously, these Zoom meetings will have a similar feel.)
