The Summit Schedule

Every single one of us is in need of a reset. A time-out. A chance to pause everything and have a moment to just breath. The last thing you need is cliched self-care advice.  Aromatherapy is just not going to cut, no matter how good those lavender bath salts smell. 

In this opening video, Schuyler Grant encourages you to approach the tools, practices, and wisdoms in this Summit with curiosity, so you can find what works for you TODAY. And it’s going to be different for everyone, and that’s okay. There’s something here in this Summit for every woman. 

Included is a 10-minute Resonance Breathing practice with Schuyler Grant to help you feel more calm and grounded, today

The Summit begins with an important and powerful reminder: you are enough. Right now, as you are. Best-selling author and nutritionist Kimberly Snyder offers wisdom and encouragement to help you fully release body shame and the prevalent “not-enoughness” in today’s society while guiding you in discovering for yourself the importance of a daily self-care ritual to love and honor yourself. 

Today Includes:

  • The Secret to Feeling Good in Your Body with Kimberly Snyder (7 min.)
  • How to Move Past Body Shame & Self-Doubt with Kimberly Snyder (4 min.)
  • Stumbling Block Detox Practice with Kimberly Snyder (3 min.)
  • Abhyanga (Ayurveda Evening Routine) Demo with Kimberly Snyder (4 min.)
  • All Levels Yoga with Dr. Chelsea Jackson Roberts (20 min.)

Today's yoga session will help you ignite the power within you. You’ll use both yoga and breath as tools that give you strength, stamina, and presence to face any challenge or obstacle. 

A woman shouldn’t have to get a medical degree to understand her own body. Dr. Jolene Brighten is committed that women everywhere get the information they deserve and need to make the best decisions for themselves. After today, you’ll have a better understanding of how women’s hormones operate and work together, how to address mood swings during menstruation, and the health benefits of orgasms. 

Today Includes:

  • Decoding the Mystery of Women’s Hormones with Dr. Jolene Brighten (5 min.)
  • Menstruation, Mood Swings & Estrogen Dominance with Dr. Jolene Brighten (15 min.)
  • The Health Benefits of Orgasm with Dr. Jolene Brighten (3 min.)
  • Seed Cycling for Hormone Health with Dr. Jolene Brighten (1 min)
  • All Levels Yoga with Adriene Mischler (30 min.)

Join Adriene Mischler for a yoga class meant to help you cultivate more awareness by listening to your body. When you move with intention, you move with higher levels of confidence and focus. 

It’s important to address the unconscious barriers holding you back from truly experiencing love in your life, whether those relationships are romantic or with your parents, siblings, children, friends, or co-workers.  Using the language and insights from A Course in Miracles, Marianne Williamson shares the universal principles at the heart of all the great relationships. In truth, relationships are the doorway to spiritual discovery.

Today includes:

  • Learning from Love with Marianne Williamson (14 min.)
  • What Forgiveness Really Is with Marianne Williamson (9 min.)
  • Meditation for Relationships with Michael B. Beckwith (11 min.)

Instead of looking at what you can get out of relationships, you'll be guided today in this 11-minute meditation to learn how to focus on what you can bring to them. This shift in view will powerfully transform how you feel in terms of being supported, loved, and appreciated.


Join us at 12 PM Pacific Time on May 19 for a virtual online gathering (hosted via Zoom) for a powerful practice for tuning into Your Inner Wisdom. It's incredibly important for women to know how to listen to and hear the wisdom their bodies and hearts have to share with them, especially in regards to decision making or understanding how to meet your own needs. All are welcome to attend. Link to the Zoom call will be sent to those who are signed up for the Summit.

FEELINGS inform our THOUGHTS and perspective. THOUGHTS inform our ACTIONS and behavior. Change any one of those aspects, and you can shift everything. Eventually though, everything always comes back to FEELINGS —– So, it’s best to start in the true power center: the heart. Today’s lessons and practices with Danielle LaPorte and Koya Webb will demonstrate the power of feelings, particularly gratitude, in creating more authentic positivity in your life. 

Today includes: 

  • Emotional Self-Agency with Danielle LaPorte (5 min.)
  • Core Desired Feelings with Danielle LaPorte (7 min.)
  • Gratitude Meditation with Koya Webb (22 min.)

Studies show that people who practice gratitude enjoy a greater satisfaction in life, as well as emotional and physical benefits. In this powerful meditation, you’ll discover the power of gratitude and the importance of incorporating daily gratitude practice. 

Nutrition and gut health are interlinked. To optimize your energy levels and improve how you feel every day, you need to look at your gut health—because the gut is responsible for the absorption of all of the nutrients from your diet. These nutrients are what fuel all of your body’s processes. Equally important to know: 70% of your immune system cells reside in your gut. Today’s lesson with Dr. Mary Pardee is packed with valuable information to help you better understand the gut-brain connection and nutrition’s role in feeling good.

Today includes:

  • The Gut-Brain Connection with Dr. Mary Pardee (10 min.)
  • Mindful Eating with Dr. Mary Pardee (9 min.)
  • The Difference Between Prebiotics & Probiotics with Dr. Mary Pardee (12 min.)
  • Aiding Digestion Gentle Yoga with Colleen Saidman Yee (22 min.)

Digestion is one of the most important things for wellness. Poor digestion can disrupt your quality of life. In today’s yoga class, Colleen Saidman Yee leads you through an all-levels gentle yoga sequence to improve your digestive system through body awareness and twists, squats, and bends. Bring a hot cup of mint tea! 

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), also known as Tapping, combines neuroscience, traditional talk-therapy, and ancient Chinese medicine to open your energy highways. Today’s lesson with Jennifer Partridge guides you through a Tapping session so you can experience firsthand one of the most effective tools to help relieve stress, anxiety, and overwhelm. 

Today includes:

  • Introduction & Tutorial to Tapping with Jennifer Partridge (6 min.)
  • Tapping to Release Overwhelm with Jennifer Partridge (24 min.)
  • Open Heart, Open Mind Yoga with Matt Phippen (27 min.)

In today’s yoga session, Matt Phipphen encourages you to peel back the shoulders and spread the heart in this chest- and back-focused flow. Enjoy forward folds, lunges, and side stretches to elongate your body and restore neutrality. 

If you want to live a life of external abundance, you need to nurture a beautiful internal state. Preethaji is a master teacher in this area. Her practices have helped thousands find greater serenity and love. Today, you’ll examine and experience a core tenet to her teachings: when you're able to let go of your suffering states of worry, fear, obsession, and simply ask the universal intelligence for help, it comes. Learn more about this divine call-and-response practice in today’s lesson.  

Today includes: 

  • Universal Intelligence & Freedom from Suffering with Preethaji (12 min.)
  • Divine Connection Yoga Nidra with Tracee Stanley (35 min.)

Yoga Nidra is a wonderful self-care practice. Especially if you are looking for ways to greater peace in your mind and body for you to deeply relax into. In today’s class has a central theme: bliss. That is, connecting to the truth that the divine resides inside of you as light—an eternal force of truth, knowledge, and action.

From the time you were young, you were probably told when and where to speak. That girls are better when they’re quiet. That staying small was safe, so you might have silenced yourself. Yet consider how you carried that formative instruction into adulthood, holding yourself back. Staying silent instead of speaking up, especially about things that matter most to you. Today, you have the opportunity to break that cycle. To find and free your voice. By recognizing the inherent power of your words and their resonance, you can use them for audacious and radical change to your own life and the lives of others. 

Today includes: 

  • Finding & Freeing Your Voice with Suzanne Sterling (18 min.)
  • The Warrior Within Yoga Flow with Chelsey Korus (21 min.)

In this Level 2 yoga class, call upon the great strength of your legs for deeper grounding into each present moment. Smooth and fluid, this flow guides you through standing poses, hamstring curls, and a dose of core work to leave you feeling strong, capable, and confident.

Curiosity is an open door. There are many ways to express your creativity and yourself. Today offers the chance for you to discover the power of poetry. You don’t have to have creative writing experience to participate. Come to the page as you are, and let street poet Jacqueline Suskin show you how wonderful life can feel when you approach it from the lens of awe. 

Today includes: 

  • The Creative Power of Awe with Jacqueline Suskin (13 min.)
  • Strength & Play Yoga with Briohny Smyth (20 min.)

Bring the attitude of adventure to your mat today as you get cozy in the glutes and deep into Chair (Utkatasana). Equal parts cardio and strength-building, this Level 2 flow follows the contours of Sun Salutation B (Surya Namaskar B), adding in Hanumanasana, Crow Pose (Bakasana), and handstand hops.

What guides your life? What guides your choices? Today on the final day of the Summit, Sharon Salzberg encourages you to look at your core values, which make up your choices and the force of your intention, which is one key element of taking action. By cultivating what Sharon Salzberg calls compassionate resilience, you can bring presence and balance, wisdom and love, to any circumstance you face, including those that are the most challenging. The natural result of this process is a deep sense of gratitude, personal growth, and connection to others.

Today includes: 

  • The Three Elements of Action with Sharon Salzberg (9 min.)
  • Meditation for Taking Action with Sharon Salzberg (9 min.)
  • Abundant Joy Active Breathwork with Scott Schwenk (41 min.)

Joy is the passkey to abundance. And frankly, love is the whole story. To see your desires manifest in the external world, you must learn how to increase your capacity for abundance. Breathwork is a critical part of the process, as it elevates your state of being. Enjoy this energy-enhancing breathwork practice with Scott Schwenk.

In this final lesson of the Summit, Lauren Zander discusses the importance of personal integrity. Of keeping promises to yourself. Real integrity comes from committing to yourself. If you want to have an exceptional life, you must cultivate a respectful relationship to integrity. When you prioritize yourself and what matters to you, you become empowered to achieve the things you’ve always desired.


Join us at 12 PM Pacific Time on May 27 for a virtual online gathering (hosted via Zoom) to close out the Women’s Health and Happiness Summit with a guided resonate breathing practice, followed by a community celebration. All are welcome to attend. Link details will be emailed to those signed up for the Summit.
