Finding Your Passion
Learn who you are and let your passion be what you do

These days, people are so busy trying to make a living that they generally miss the reason they are here. They miss their lives and their real passions. They miss critical opportunities to engage work that is truly meaningful for them. But one thing is for sure - finding and following your passion in life - whether full time or part-time - is critical to finding your happiness and your purpose in life; without it our lives are meaningless.

Join New York City based coaches, Arnaud Collery, Executive Coach & Trainer and Founder of Stand Up For Passion and Donnalynn Civello, Intuitive Life Coach and Author of “Life Lessons, Everything You Ever Wished You Had Learned in Kindergarten” for a workshop that will change the way you live your life and earn your salary. Together these powerhouse coaches have coached over 600+ leaders internationally in helping them to identify and pursue their individual passions.

This workshop uses a proprietary method developed by Arnaud and Donnalynn to help you uncover your passion, apply your gifts, explore your dreams and ultimately design an action plan for you to achieve it all. What are you waiting for? The rest of your life is about to begin.

Public Speaking, Storytelling & Voice Workshop

  • Alchemical Theatre Laboratory

Speak Your Truth, Purpose, & Passion!


After a successful workshop, we are coming back for another! Join us on Sunday, August 30 from 3 to 6pm for a Public Speaking, Storytelling and Voice Workshop! 
 
You will get the two best coaches in New York to work on your story, presence, timing and voice. Connect more to an audience, feel comfortable on a stage to be yourself, and share what really matters to you!
 
For CEOs who want to sell their companies, for executives who need to make presentations, for NGOs to raise funds, for actors/singers/comedians to be better, for anyone who wants to speak with confidence.
 
We all have a stories and it’s time to stand out by activating the power of your unique voice. In this power packed workshop geared towards storytelling and making an impact with embodied presence, you will be coached on creating stories that explore authentic connection, presentation, message, rythme and voice. We will work on how to deal with anxiety on stage, how to be playful when giving a speech, how to connect to the audience as quickly as possible.
 
This workshop will offer you a template structure on what it takes to make a good speech...... even greater. Our simple exercices will have you telling stories better and simpler.
 
Participants will receive powerful laser coaching by Arnaud Collery and Megwyn White (see bios below) that will focus on harnessing presence, delivery, and bridging emotional connection with the audience. 

Through simple shifts in expression as well as exploring word choice and timing, you will learn how to captivate and draw any audience into what you are sharing. 
 
As a bonus to this course participants will receive a FREE “Haptic Technology for the Face”. Within this mini take-home-kit focused on releasing tension and tightness in the jaw and neck that frequently limit the energy of free speech, you will be guided into melting away tensions that often “lock” the voice in the head, and keep your speech flat and un-remarkarble. 

Learn how freeing the core connection within your voice will help to expand the emotional range of transmitting the deeper meaning within the stories you share.
 
Arnaud and Megwyn are expert’s in helping people jumpstart their ability to share stories that actually “get heard”. Both have extensive acting training and experience working onstage to command presence and tell stories that stop your heart and drop you in to deeper listening.

A Transformational Journey | Leadership Retreat in Bhaktapur, Nepal

  • Bhaktapur Nepal

Everyone needs a break including leaders! Everyone needs to take a step back in life to prepare for the next chapter.  

Why do you need a break?

Most of us are on constant autopilot throughout our lives, never really setting a clear personal direction. Changes and life events happen, but we all have a longing to own and write the story of our lives. Yet it’s very hard to do because we get caught up in the whirlpool of life. We all need a break from the busy-ness of life where we can reach into our deeper self and hear our inner wisdom. We need to have a new outlook on the meaning of what we have accomplished so far, understand the chapters of our lives and how they fit into our life story. We do this work so we can write the next chapter of our lives in a more conscious way, with a new intent and new vision that is rich in our inner wisdom.

Why is rewriting your story important?

We all come to a point in life where we need to take some distance and perspective on what we have done so far. Time is essential. Otherwise we are not the writer of our story, someone else will write it for us until we decide that we want to do this.

How can we write a new story?

The environment we live in, surrounded by the familiar, is not conducive to real creativity and new insight. To tap into our inner wisdom, we need to be in a place that is charged with timeless energy, and be surrounded by people that have done the Work. We also need a safe place where we can be vulnerable, be open, and surrender to our own Truth.

Why Nepal and why Bhaktapur?

Bhaktapur was the ancient capital of Nepal. Bhaktapur means “The city of the devotees”. A devotee is a person who is very interested in and enthusiastic about someone or something. Here it’s time to be interested and enthusiastic about your own story! The city was built mainly in the XVth century, is in the neighborhood of Kathmandu (the actual capital of Nepal) and is culturally extremely rich due to it’s key location on the ancient trade routes between India and Tibet.

Methodology

This is a NOT a theoretical retreat. We are into practical tools & action. Focusing on your transformation & your success. Interested in supporting you own growth taking into account your own skills, fears, perceived limitations, and your heart vision! Our 2 coaches are highly achieved professionals who have been specialized in helping people rewrite their story and help them going to the next step through coaching and ancient wisdom tools.  We were trained in theater, storytelling, coaching, creative leadership, meditation, transformational coaching, Reiki, and healing.

We also have strong business acumen, leadership skills in management & entrepreneurship and are consultants & advisors of numerous successful companies around the world. We are talking about the things we are living & breathing daily.

So YOU are going to do the REAL WORK, in a creative, fun & supportive setup, but we will hold you all the way in and out! We will divide the days in personal coaching, active questions that make you understand yourself better, your own milestones, reflection through guided meditation, writing powerful individual action plans, learning essential life tools, giving you quality time to write your new story with our help and having creative and inspiring moments fueled by Nepal energy and magic.

And the cherry on the cake? You will have free access to a top Osteopath and healer that will give you additional support during the week in Nepal

What is the goal of the retreat?

Our goal is that at the end of the week you have your own new story, a powerful inspiring tale, that uplift you & drive you, and a clear set of tools you can use with an action plan for the year to come.

KEY Takeaways

  • Learn timeless powerful life tools
  • Have an action plan for the days, weeks and months to come

What do you get in addition to the 7 days retreat?

The price includes 6 hours of individual coaching by skype following the retreat in the following 6 months and one monthly group conference call.

What do you need and how can I prepare?

We will send you a short list of questions to prepare the retreat. But you just need to come with an open mind & heart, a willingness to go deep and revisit your past. You are ok to share your story to our coaches with the coaches and your co-participants in a safe and protected space.

The typical participant will be an executive or entrepreneur between 35 and 55 that wants to take the necessary time to go to the next step. They will certainly be an international crowd of French, American, Japanese since this is our network.
