Frequently Asked Questions
Empowered Woman: An Embodied Feminine Leadership Program
+ Whom do I talk to about any details regarding the program? You may reach out to Nicole, facilitator and owner of SolRiver Expressive Arts & Psychotherapy Institute. Her email is email@example.com and her phone number is 754-307-6810. You may text or call that number from 10am-8pm Seven days per week. If at any point you have an emergency, please be sure to call 911 or the Miami Mobile Crisis Hotline at (305) 774-3616.
+ If I'm unable to make it to every in-person session, is that ok? Yes. Each in-person session will be recorded and the replay will be emailed to you within 48 hours after each session. Please just let me know at least 24 hours prior to the session if you cannot make it.
+ What if I'm running late to one of the in-person sessions? If you are running late, please notify Nicole via text so we can plan accordingly. Her number is 754-307-6810.
+ How much time do I need to devote to this program each week? There is no time requirement. However, the more you devote to each practice and its reflections, as with anything, the more you will get out of it. On average, participants usually spend 1-2 additional hours per week on meditations, journaling, and sharing in our Private Women's Group Forum.
+ Regarding the Private Women's Group Forum, do we have to post in there each week? I am more of a private person and don't like sharing my personal stuff. You will never be forced to share anything you don't feel comfortable sharing; neither in the in-person retreats nor in the online forum.
Sometimes it helps to remember that when you share yourself, you share for other women too. We are all mirrors for each other, all in this together. Many participants often feel the power in sharing themselves lays in being witnessed, received, and accepted by others when so much of their lives they were shamed or judged for being who they are.
+ When and where will in-person sessions be held? Each live in-person session will be held Mondays beginning August 16th and end November 12th from 6:30pm-7:45pm (EST). Please allow for 75 minutes per session. Each session will be held at 3000 Biscayne Blvd Miami, FL 33137.
+ I understand that this program provides a safe space for me to show up fully as I am. What happens if I share something in the group that makes me feel ashamed or embarrassed? The mission of this program is to uphold the highest integrity among each participant. As such, if ever you feel anything other than joy, peace, and love (yes other emotions like sadness, disrespect, fear, shame, or anger may surface), you are encouraged to bring it up in the group and/or process it with Nicole in private. After all, that's what we are all here for: to support and uplift each other in the midst of our pain and struggles. Often, when we share our shadows, our provocations, our triggers, and our not-so-lovely feelings, we learn the most about ourselves. Others often learn the most about themselves when you/we are vulnerable because we become the mirror that allows others to see within!
+ What happens if I'm not 100% satisfied with this program? We invite you to try at least one month of in-person sessions, at-home practices, journaling, and participate in the online private forum before deciding whether you are satisfied. This is about the amount of time it takes to start to see internal and external shifts take place in your life. If at any point you are still unsatisfied, please don't hesitate to talk with Nicole. Your satisfaction is our highest priority!
+ What if I need to cancel my membership to the program? You can cancel up to 1 week prior to the start date of the program and receive a full refund of your money. If you start the program and see this program is not the right fit, you will be issued a 50% refund of your money.
