Find and Embody the Sunrise in Your Pocket

Week of January 4, 2020

Just like we know for sure that the sun rises each day, whether the skies are cloudy or clear, so too can we rely on our inner strength and wisdom our most trusted teacher. Join Elena Sonnino – a sought-after guide for the things they don’t teach us in school – to find and embody the Sunrise in Your our Pocket. This series is designed to help you create space for awareness, to allow for more ease and curiosity in your life, and to unearth, attune to, and embody your inner strength and wisdom. Learn practical tools and mindset practices that you can integrate into your daily life with more ease.


Day 1: Create Space to Live Your Fullest Life
Move out of survival mode to step boldly into your life.

To-do lists, deadlines, even healthy habits can put us on autopilot, and keep us from the hard work of giving ourselves permission to feel emotion. Transformation happens when we realize that is more to this life than just getting by, one check-list at a time and sometimes that means exploring and allowing emotions. Sometimes it means slowing down to pause and breath. In this session you’ll explore how your own habits and patterns are keeping you stuck and where you can create space for more awareness and possibility.

Day 2: Mindset matters
Judgment will always be there. Love yourself anyway.

When was the last time you weren’t trying to change something about yourself? Get to know the stories and internal dialogue that echo in your brain, with awareness rather than judgment. Learn to move out of fixing mode, not-enoughness, and past or future thinking. In this session you’ll explore the practice of identifying, naming, and investigating the stories you tell yourself. You’ll make room for a new narrative grounded in your own inner wisdom and love.

Day 3: Practice determination without expectation
Ride the wave no matter what life throws at you.

We often hear about not having an attachment to outcomes. That life is about the journey, not the destination. But let’s be real: holding big, bold desires and dreams lightly enough that the outcome itself doesn’t make or break you – is hard. The practice begins when we explore how to cultivate attunement rather than attainment. You’ll learn to practice determination without expectation so that you can ride the wave without waiting for the finish line.

Day 4: Embody your intention in the now
Stop waiting. Live your ideal life in the now.

Release the past and future to create space for living your ideal life. By attuning to how you want to feel rather than an outcome, we learn to live our days with intention. You’ll explore what it would look like and feel like to live your ideal life. Learn how to embody your intention with a holistic approach anchored in your values and your heart.

Day 5: Say Yes to You
Create your personal roadmap to write the next chapter in your life

Get out of your head and step boldly into your heart. Embrace your inner storyteller to visualize and manifest what feels most delicious in your heart. Create your own personal roadmap, guided by your inner strength and wisdom, to write the next chapter in your life.
