“I do not understand all the mystery of grace, only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us.” – Anne Lamott
One of my mentors once told me that true transformation is 80% grace and 20% effort. When we are tuned in to divine will and we are operating from connection to the truth of who we are, we enter into a flow with the universe that seems to make our lives unfold effortlessly. Yet, why does tuning into grace sometimes seem so hard? How do we become so disconnected? Why is leaning toward drive and push and hard work the default rather than the exception?
In this Circle Up, we will explore perspectives and practices that will help us to develop more trust in the power of grace, while forging on and moving mountains from a place of grounded resilience.

Facilitated by Emerging Women’s founder, Chantal Pierrat, a Circle Up is a live virtual event that explores a new leadership and feminine power theme each month. After Chantal sets the context for the topic, participants will be placed into small groups for sharing and feedback using the unique Emerging Women Power Circle process. Participants are guided to share deeply and support their circle sisters in stepping fully and courageously into living their truth.
