Why I Invited Cheryl Richardson to Speak at Mastery

An amazing fact about women: we have an extraordinary way of creatively conspiring with our girlfriends, to take each other higher.
Here’s how it goes.
One day, out of the blue, Christiane Northrup called me and said, “You gotta get my friend Cheryl to come to Mastery.”
“Who’s Cheryl?” I ask.
“Oh, she is an amazing coach and speaker. I have worked with her at Hay House. She works with Louise Hay and Oprah.”
“Hmm…” I say. Sounds interesting.

Now, one thing I know about Christiane. When she recommends someone for Mastery, she wants the Mastery women to benefit from the genius of that particular guest.
But she also wants that guest to benefit from Mastery.
Sure enough, in a secret stealth mission, Cheryl came to a Mastery Intro, in 2010.
Read this for a fun run-down on her experiences:

Following that, we began an e-mail flirtation about possibilities.
And now, this year, Cheryl will actually be a speaker at Mastery!!
I already love her work. She has written some amazing books: Take Time for Your Life, Life Makeovers, Stand Up for Your Life, The Unmistakable Touch of Grace, The Art of Extreme Self Care and You Can Create an Exceptional Life.

Read her words, from her website, and you will know instantly how much we all have in common with her:
“For the last twenty years I’ve dedicated my personal and professional life to the importance of self-care by teaching from my own experience. In the past, I’ve sacrificed my health and my relationships for work, given to others at the expense of my own needs, and watched my dreams slip through the cracks of a busy life. As a result, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to put an end to the madness. And, as I grow and evolve, I share the practical tools and resources I use myself, in the hopes that it helps you to improve your own life.
“Self-care is good for the planet. From years of personal experience, as well as coaching great men and women, I’ve come to understand that selfishness leads to selflessness. When we care deeply for ourselves, we naturally begin to care for others – our families, our friends, our greater global community, and the environment – in a healthier and more effective way. We tell the truth. We make choices from love instead of guilt and obligation. And we soon realize that we’re all connected and that our individual actions affect a greater whole.”

Brilliant, no?
I cannot wait to hear even more of what Cheryl has to share with the world!!
I am so excited to have all of you meet Cheryl and be inspired by her greatness at The School of Womanly Arts Mastery Program 2012.
Enrollment closes in less than one week! If you’re ready to dive in, reserve your space here or call The Palace at 212-787-2411 x1.

With so much love and pleasure,
Mama Gena

    I took a year long self care class with Cheryl and always felt she was a sister goddess at heart! You are going to love, love, love hearing her speak at Mastery – she’s wonderful.

    I’m so happy and a little scared about taking Mastery 🙂 but you rocked my world in Copenhagen! Thank you Mama Gena and what a nice surprice that you’re bringing Cheryl on 🙂 I’m a big fan of her show “Coach on call” on Hay House Radio.

    I gave my life to a family- husband and 3 children – for 21 years. I was blissful in my giving, but when it ended, I felt like monday morning’s garbage on the side of the curb. My self esteem was in the toilet. I felt unloveable, unattractive, unworthy in so many ways.
    -long 3 years of recovery where friends and family came to my emotional rescue on a daily basis God Bless them for that-
    Now I find myself in what I call the first “grown up” relationship of my life. A man who supports my dreams, goals, desires…A spiritual soul-mate who is a fellow seeker, and a man who when he makes love to me-(not as often as I would like maybe because he’s 9 years older than me and not as “excited” as I am) it feels as though I’m being caressed by the entire universe.
    How can I be sure that I’m not loosing myself in this relationship as I have a tendency to do? How can I stay as exciting and excited as I am meant to be?
