Program Description

As we grow farther and farther away from childhood, the demands and stresses of life increase. We forget the power to say yes to what delights our heart and soul, makes us feel alive, and brings us peace. But in order to live a present, joyful, and fulfilling life, we must remember.

Abandon the pressure to do it all, surrender the need to please everyone, and protect your time and energies from those things which deplete and exhaust you with expert and Hands Free Life author Rachel Macy Stafford.

This exploratory workshop gives you the necessary tools to gain and maintain a sense of inner peace, connection, and fulfillment.  You will:

  • Reveal the lies, facades, and fears keeping you from true happiness and fulfillment
  • Learn to be honest with yourself and honor your soul at every opportunity
  • Practice training yourself to respond compassionately and constructively
  • Incorporate the Soul Shift into a plan to continue growing into who you are meant to be.

Uncovering our innermost truths isn’t always easy or painless, but the results are always truly and abundantly transformational. With every honest look inward, we get closer to becoming the best version of ourselves and the best example for our loved ones to follow.

You can liberate yourself from the external circumstances and internal patterns that hold you back from responding with the unconditional love that is your birthright.  Because it’s never too late to shift and improve our responses to ourselves, our beloveds, or the challenges of life.

    Author and speaker

    Rachel Macy Stafford has one goal: help people choose love as much as humanly possible. Suddenly admitting the honest answer to a question that had been a source of pride for a long time: “How do you do it all?” can be a revolutionary, life-changing shift. Rachel’s painfully simple response, “I miss out on life, and what I miss I cannot get back,” began her  Hands Free  journey to let go of distraction, perfection, and societal pressure so she could grasp what really matters.

    Rachel is a certified special education teacher with a master’s degree in education. She inspires millions in her weekly blogposts at  handsfreemama.com  and through her supportive Facebook community, The Hands Free Revolution.
    Rachel is an in-demand speaker who has been featured on CNN, the Today show, Good Morning America, Global News, USA Today,  Time.com, The Huffington Post, and Reader’s Digest.  She is the New York Times  best-selling author of  Hands Free  Mama,  Hands Free Life, and  Only Love Today.
