Chrysalis Community for Leaders and Dreamers

Launching May 2024! Apply to be a part of our first cohort

You are a woman or nonbinary person who longs for a world that is whole, just, and well

You have big, beautiful dreams for your life, and struggle to bring them to fruition in a high speed, product-oriented culture

You are tired of putting your health and needs aside in order to do your work and life

Chrysalis is a community of dreamers and leaders in which we nurture our wellbeing and our visions. 

We offer a space of care, depth and learning, where we can heal and create in our own timing, and with support. 

We are educators, journeyers, healers, artists, organizers, and spiritual practitioners learning to listen to our bodies as an integral aspect of how we meet the world around us.

When we align with our body’s wisdom, powerful things happen. Life becomes more easeful. We relax, and we heal. We discover new pathways of living joyfully and with wellbeing.
Chrysalis is for you if you are :
  • Embarking on a healing sabbatical

It was with grace that I found Lee at a time when I was yearning to reconnect with a sense of purpose in my life and my work. Joining Somatic Wellbeing for Visionaries and Leaders provided me with a safe and intentional space to connect deeply with myself and others. The attentiveness to breath and body, that Lee led us through, created an opportunity for a deep wellspring of body-based knowledge to rise up. My experience grew beyond the workshops and translated effortlessly into my life and my practice.  She is a gifted listener and facilitator. She is truly present and passionate about her work.
