For me, it’s an essential ingredient to the work that I do. It’s an intrinsic part of how I do business, conduct my relationships, and offer service in the world. Without the spirit of generosity, our burnout is assured.
When we move from a place of giving wholeheartedly, we can offer ourselves in a way that is well-boundaried, yet completely enthusiastic.
That’s where the magic happens – and part of how we avoid burnout.
Today, I want to take a little time to walk you through my Free Resource Garden, a totally-free collection of self-care resources designed to empower, inspire and nourish you.
In case you haven’t strolled through the garden recently, here’s what’s there,
to help you bloom:
Planners and checklists
The Retreat Planner & Checklist shows you, step-by-step, how to create your own self-care retreat.
The Real Self-Care Planner has been downloaded 2,000+ times and used by people all over the world. Inside, create a practice from scratch, no matter how busy you are.
My workbooks, Crafting Your Life, Care for Every Moment, and Setting Intention, are all designed to help you make your self-care truly custom.
Enjoy mp3s to feel more embodied and empowered through breath and meditation.
There’s also a Spotify playlist, with some of my favorite music – my go-to playlist for unwinding at the end of the day or while I’m making dinner.
The Liberatory Self-Care Manifesto was my first articulation of what I think self-care should be: custom, intuitive, feasible. There’s also a meditation toolkit, walking you through how to get started with a practice that feels engaged and compassionate.
*New*: video workshops, on demand
Since I’m taking a break from teaching my live workshops this summer, I’ve put some of my favorites inside the garden for you to enjoy on-demand.
You’ll now find videos for Introduction to Awesome Self-Care and Meditation for Self-Care, each about an hour long, inside the garden.
Other inspiring goodies
There are community practices, desktop wallpapers, and resource guides – plus more coming soon! These resources include the actual, real-life things that I’m reading, watching, listening to, loving, and feeling inspired by in my own practice.
The Free Resource Garden beckons you.
This is how I incorporate generosity into my work: by giving away as much as possible for free. By delivering value and a clear sense of what it’s like to work with me – before you pay a dime.
This is part what justice looks like in my work. These resources are available to all.
Of course, this work is also how I support my family. But I always begin with this:
How can I give as generously as possible? What does wholehearted giving look like?
I move into the world from the answers that come. And I’ll say: it feels pretty good.
