"INTEGRATING THE FEMININE AND THE MASCULINE - WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?" with NANCY KOBEL

Divine Feminine, Divine Masculine. What do these terms mean? And how do they apply to me? Nancy will explore with the attendees what it means to be in our feminine energy and what it means to be in our masculine energy and how do we integrate the two to be in more balance.

Many of us assimilated into a culture where the masculine was praised and the feminine was put down or suppressed and we took on many masculine qualities and traits, suppressing the feminine. We are returning to a point of balance.

Nancy will provide ideas and resources on how to nurture the feminine and bring it into balance with the masculine. For example: Giving. Many women give until there is nothing left to give and they do not know how to receive. Giving is a masculine trait and receiving is feminine. How do we heal and learn how to receive in balance with giving? We will explore this!

Nancy Kobel is a transformational life and leadership coach, professionally trained and accredited through the International Coach Federation (ICF). Nancy is founder of Leader Inspired, LLC. She works from her heart center, with both men and women, providing the tools and an environment that gets to the core of what is holding her clients back from having the success and joy they truly desire in life and work. She has been coaching for nearly 7 years with individuals and groups at all levels of the leadership scale including high potential employees, senior level leaders, entrepreneurs and women wanting to transform their lives. She is well versed in leadership development with a particular interest in communication and bringing the feminine into balance with masculine leadership. She is also a contributing author to two Heal My Voice Anthologies: Inspired Voices: True Stories by Visionary Women and Feminine Voices: True Stories by Women Transforming Leadership. Her professional background includes a BS in Aerospace Engineering, an MA in Instructional Design, both from the University of Maryland. She received her coaching certification through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). She is also an Energy Leadership Master Practitioner and a Reiki Practitioner.

She is a single mom of two children and one of her favorite quotes is by Marianne Williamson and aligns with her mission as a coach: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Let us help make this time of transition easier and more fun! Maybe you're a stay at home mom looking for some adult connections and a little down time. Come and hang out with us!
