Are you longing for a place to share with other women?
Where you can be honest, connected, vulnerable?
Where you can come to take care of yourself?
Leave the demands of jobs, partners and families behind?
Where it's okay to be yourself, even the parts that you like to keep hidden?
As Glennon Doyle famously wrote in "Untamed":
"The epitome of womanhood is to lose one’s self completely. That is the end goal of every patriarchal culture. Because a very effective way to control women is to convince women to control themselves."
Here at Freedom Within we're done with that. We believe that every human is worthy of taking care of themselves and we believe in the transformative power of taking up taking care of ourselves even and especially when we live in a society that tries to tell us that we are not one of the lucky few who look like the Instagram picture of self-care.
On a surface level, Freedom Within offers on-demand yoga classes for all levels (with weekly additions), weekly live meditations for all levels, journaling prompts, monthly women's circles and workshops.
On a deeper level, Freedom Within is a warm hug for every woman who
1 no longer wants to live up to anyone else's standard
2 is craving community but is fed up by gossip and judgement
3 was made to believe she has to look or act a certain way to be successful
4 is fed up trying to prove her worth
Freedom Within got its name from my own search for a better life.
I had it all: The corporate job, the fancy apartment, the expensive trips - and I wanted nothing more than a different life.
But because I, too, grew up believing that my worth was tied to how successful I was, how much money I made, how far up the career ladder I could climb I wasn't even able to look within to see what sort of different life I actually wanted.
Enter quitting everything and travelling around the world and almost 12 months in I finally found the inner freedom to ask myself:
"What do I actually want?"
and listen to what my inner freedom had to say.
This is the community I needed to learn my worth, to learn to take care of myself and to learn how much power was within me if I finally stopped trying to live someone else's life.
