Befriending & Becoming

A 40 DAY JOURNEY OF PERSONAL GROWTH

Befriending and Becoming is a group program for busy women like you.

It is expertly crafted to help you improve your relationship with yourself & with change

So you can achieve the personal and career success and the satisfaction you desire. 

It is time to become more of the woman you want to be

It is time to stop living a life full on autopilot full of stress, overwhelm or doubt

It is time to step into action with more confidence, motivation and ease

Befriending & Becoming will show you how to make that possible


This 40-Day Course is For You If. . . 

  • You want to LIVE WITH PURPOSE - you are tired of your demanding schedule taking you away from the things you love most, even when you are physically doing the things you want to be doing you aren't often present with them. There doesn't seem to be any "me" time to explore your passions, to even take care of yourself, follow up with friends, to laugh with your kids or take that vacation.
  • You want to DO BETTER - at your job, at parenting, in your marriage or as a concerned citizen but feel like 'busy-ness' is holding you back from your full potential.
  • You want to FEEL BETTER - you are often irritable or frustrated or feeling down right defeated by life at times and you are ready to find that zing and pleasure
  • You want to TAKE ACTION - you have goals and dreams but have found yourself frozen or stuck in making real progress towards realizing them - are ready for some real change but are lacking the motivation to get things done.
  • You want to SPEAK UP - you have got something to say to your boss, to your spouse, to your in-laws, to your hairdresser that didn't get it right, to the WORLD - but you unwantingly find yourself worrying about what others might think of you - if you were to just live out loud.

Program Overview

Weekly Modules

Every week there will be a new module covering a topic in the Befriending and Becoming theme (i.e. Befriending Fear Becoming Courageous). These modules include informative and inspiring audios you can listen to on your commute, while working out or making dinner. They are peppered with digestible science, techniques and tools that you can apply right away! Each audio not only includes tons of valuable information but real life examples so you can understand how your life will benefit from the knowledge being shared. You will walk away knowing how to manage your fear, what to do about stress, how to speak to your inner critic, how to stay motivated and in action and SO MUCH MORE. This is the fourth year and 8th time this course has been offered and each module has grown and become richer and more valuable with age! The content has recently been revamped and I couldn't be more excited!


“Befriending & Becoming was an amazingly impactful class. From the shared space with so many open women, to the knowledge, love and humor from our teacher, Danielle; My heart and mind opened in the most beautiful way. Danielle has a way of translating ancient knowledge as well as up-to-date neuroscience in a very current and relatable way. Months later, I am still expanding and growing from the tools I learned in this class. Thank you Danielle!”

Modern Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a huge part of the Befriending and Becoming journey and you will be encouraged to practice a mindfulness activity each day of the 40 days. But don't worry! Everyone's practice will look different and it is not a one size fits all! You will be provided with multiple options whether you are a newbie or experienced practitioner.

Each week you will also be provided with guided meditations to enhance the module we are studying as well as tips to help you stick with the practice and handle any bumps along the way. I have been doing this practice for 10 years, so whatever you are encountering there is a good chance I have gone through the same thing!

To help with keeping yourself accountable you will have a fun and creative tracker in your journal to document your progress.


Danielle’s tender and brainy support has helped me inch my way to a daily meditation practice, mindful living and, most importantly, a genuine sense of compassion for myself. What is more is that although I have shed some tears throughout the process, Danielle’s style is infused with laughter and keeps things interesting and fun. It’s been an absolute pleasure!

Self-discovery

This journey is about learning how your mind works, how your thoughts animate your emotions and how that causes you to show up in the world. It is not a sit back and watch sort of thing. You will be inspired to dig deep, it may feel uncomfortable at times, but celebrate we will!

To aide you in this process of self-discovery you will be provided with a uniquely crafted daily journal where you may write a little or a lot. There are questions meant to prompt deeper inquiry as well as space to record your wins and appreciations.

You can truly begin to befriend the beautiful woman you are so that you can become a more present mother, a confident woman, an empowered leader - become the woman you desire to be.


In life we come across ‘those people’, people who leave a mark, people who have a profound impact on our lives, people embodied with a magnetic force. Danielle is one of those people. The curriculum she desgins for her Becoming courses challenge you to evaluate your inner self, your feelings and emotions, your thought processes. She challeges you with her gentle spirit and grace to dig deep and uncover the treasures that await you (sounds cheesy but I promise it’s true!). Each week I walked way with discoveries that continue to influence and shape my life. If you are ready to do the work, you need Danielle. This is what she was born to do!

Community

Deep bonds and friendships have been born during this course - but beyond that it is so important that we have a safe space to share ourselves vulnerably - to be seen and to connect. When we courageously share our own experience we give our sister-friend the ability to see how she is not alone, that other women have experienced similar things, that we are all in it together. This space is safe, to be who you are without fear of judgement or ridicule. There will be an online Private FB community and depending on your investment level multiple opportunities to meet in person (which is the BEST)!


With the help of meditations, audios lessons, an army of loving, accepting, brilliant sisters, and the support of Danielle as a coach, I was able to take a good long look at myself and launch into this difficult work of embracing who I am and getting vulnerable in the world; of living “out loud”. The meditation practice has simply changed my life. I have been working on it for so long and it didn’t really stick until hearing Danielle’s stories and experience with how challenging it is and how much our mind f*cks with us. How to catch it and how to step back and call it out. Through meditation and the work in this class I feel like I am able to be embodied and am starting to really listen to my emotional self and that wisdom from within. Something magical happens in this class because of Danielle’s leadership and the space that she creates and holds for people to show up exactly as they are.

“Taking part of ‘Befriending & Becoming’ has been one of the most valuable gifts I have given myself as a woman and human being. In a perfect world, I would want to take this class every single week of my life! I really loved the accountability and being around a community of women who validated my journey in so many ways. Danielle is an exceptional instructor who was born to teach...she truly leads by example and gives her students the space to be their true selves.”

Masterful Coaching

I love what I do and the women that I help and am so SO passionate about this course and helping you get the most out of it. I know this material inside and out because I don't just teach it, I LIVE it. Each week there will be a Inquiry Power Hour where you can ask all the things or get coached! These sessions will be recorded for all to view if you are not able to make them live. 


Danielle is real. Her work is grounded in science and she knows what she’d doing. She’s like the most helpful girlfriend you’ve ever had. I felt like an equal with her, which is not something I was expecting to experience after years of a therapist/patient relationship. But that doesn’t mean that we were just chit-chatting. We were doing solid, transformative work. And some of the stuff I learned during our sessions and the Befriending and Becoming course absolutely transformed my life.
— Cecily C. Actor, Life & Mindfulness Coach

When I came to this course I was struggling with anger, fear and hurt of a situation that I felt I was hurled into despite my best efforts to avoid. It was a true shock that kept replaying and reliving daily and moment to moment and I felt paralyzed. The most transformative part of the experience was how actually realizing that instead of getting rid of the hurt, pain and anger but it was to sit with it and feel it but also feel it with the goodness that is there in life. With meditation and the conversation on how the brain works, I understand that compassion for myself in challenging times goes a long way. Being kind to myself, elevated me to walk with and see gratitude in everything. Knowing I was in community of women made it easier and was also hopeful because I feel like there is power in numbers of reclaiming peace and happiness. The audio, meditations, exercises and journal writing were pathways to making the concepts stick. All together they were elixers to my new way of life!
