Conscious Bravery

A Pathway to Women’s Liberation

Hi, my name is Alexis. I’m so glad you’re here. I’ve spent decades working with women just like you. Women who have so much to contribute to the world but aren’t sure where to start. Women with brilliant minds and big hearts who can’t see their own awesomeness.

If there was anything I could tell you, it would be this: You are not alone. Your self-doubt and fear are part of a larger story that unites all women. And it’s time to change the narrative.

Your voice is needed now, more than ever before. The world needs you to be brave. Are you ready?

Let’s go.

Conscious Bravery

Conscious Bravery is a new pathway to women’s liberation that is backed by science and grounded in your lived experience as a woman. There are five elements to Conscious Bravery that involve shifts from old ways of experiencing the world to new ones that are full of possibility and hope.

We begin by identifying the internal and external forces that silence our voices and restrict our lives. Then we focus on the unique strengths that our identities have given to us, using that as fuel to inspire sustained action. Underpinning all of this is a commitment to caring for our community and ourselves through self-compassion and spiritual wellness.

1. From Inner to Outer

Societal beliefs about women show up in our lives as perfectionism, Imposter Syndrome, and low self-confidence. Learning to identify these beliefs is the first step towards healing internalized sexism.

2. From Weakness to Strength

The identities that make us the most vulnerable also make us the most powerful. Learning to see the gifts of our identities makes us unstoppable.

3. From Thought to Action

The myth of heroic and fearless action keeps many women stuck in self-doubt. Learning to take small risks increases our confidence.

4. From Me to We

True inspiration comes from a larger purpose that serves others. Learning to tap into the collective “we” transforms us into fearless changemakers.

5. From Outer to Inner

Resilience and resistance require a great deal of emotional, physical, and psychological energy. Learning to develop a spiritual practice is critical to conserving and renewing your energy.
