What’s Holding You Back?

Humans are hard-wired to react quickly to danger or threats to ensure survival. And though the types of danger and threats we face today are very different from those our cave-dwelling ancestors faced, the impact on our lives is just as profound, perhaps even more so. The challenges of our modern lives are vastly different from the ones we faced when we were hunters and gatherers so long ago. Fear is such an ever-present part of our daily lives that it becomes habitual and invisible to us, forming the background of our emotional states. In fact, many times we don’t even know that we are afraid, let alone what we’re afraid of. This blindness may well be responsible for much of the confusion we experience when things aren’t working out well for us or we feel “stuck” in one or more areas of our lives with little or no understanding of why.

What role does fear play in our lives and how can we hold it in a more productive way? How might we identify what’s going on for us when we’re feeling stuck or find ourselves suffering from some level of paralysis? What are some strategies we can use to get back in action and what do we need to “unlearn” to take control of our lives in an affirming and powerful way?

Please join us on September 25th to share your experiences and wisdom, bring your challenges and obstacles, or just to enjoy being part of the discussion. Everyone is welcome.

Please note: This is a “brown bag” event, and it is recommended that participants bring their lunch to eat during the roundtable. We’ll also have beverages and snacks to share. The Women’s Leadership Roundtable is a facilitated open forum for women, as leaders of themselves and others, to discuss relevant issues, build community and network, collaborate with, learn from, and support one another. It provides an opportunity for women to share their experiences, engage in thought-provoking discussion, and to generate ideas and growth together. The roundtable is an ongoing event, open to the public, held on the 3rd Friday of the month from January through October in a Denver area location. You are encouraged to attend as frequently as possible and bring your ideas, issues, and interests to the discussion. There is a $10 charge for the roundtable, paid in advance when registering online, and a $12 charge when paid at the door. A discounted rate is available for those wishing to register for an entire year of roundtables. For additional information contact Karen McGee at 303 503-9681.
