Brave & Beautiful Membership Community

membership

Life is so imperfect. And beautiful.

If we are to really live – abundantly – we need to make space for messy. We need to embrace the truth that life can be really hard, challenging, scary, and painful – but also a beautiful adventure.

We get to decide who and how we want to be in the world and how we’ll show up to life.

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” — Viktor Frankl

The Brave & Beautiful Membership Community is one way that we can gather together and make space.

It’s a place for you to receive evidence-based education & encouragement to help you learn and practice the tools, mindset shifts, and habits that help us live mind-body healthy and show up fully – with joy and purpose – to our imperfect & beautiful lives.

Registration is now closed

Doors to the Brave & Beautiful Membership are open again for April and beyond. The community is capped at 50 women so spaces are limited.

I joined the Brave & Beautiful Community to have a group of growth-minded women to journey through this season of my life with. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to learn new strategies for living with purpose as well as supporting and celebrating other women as we share our lives together as part of the community. Brave & Beautiful is a wonderful investment and I would highly recommend making the commitment. -Shana H

Brave & Beautiful Membership Community

“I think the top strengths of the B&B community are I find it to be a safe place with others who are *mostly* in the same season of life as I am. It is a wonderfully warm, inviting and honest group with an equally wonderful, warm and wise moderator. Your talents, Krista, are the largest draw for me. You leave no stone unturned, are so very thorough and generously supportive. You are a pearl in a sea of chaos and confusion. There are so many “programs” out there. Yours is a community. You care for each person, and that is evident.” -Kelley B

Imagine being part of a private community to talk about the things that truly matter to you

January through July I introduce a new topic for the month that we work through together and which supports us in showing up fully – with joy and on purpose – to our imperfect & beautiful lives. In year two and beyond of the membership I will occasionally repeat a module because of its importance, recognizing that each time we visit it, we’ll go deeper into our understanding and practice of the work. August will be a lighter month – there will be no new module, and instead, we’ll make space for review, discussion, and practical application of ideas we’ve already covered.

In March our topic will be living Rooted & Resilient

We’ll explore the science around and strengthen our habits of grit and resilience, inner strength and resourcefulness. We’ll talk about the source of our identity and worth, the joy of an “unbalanced life” and learning to flex and bend so we don’t break.

In April our focus will be on The How of Happiness

We’ll engage with the science of happiness, build healthy happiness practices, explore the truth that joy and pain can coexist as well as the concept of spiritual bypassing or how relentless positivity causes harm, not happiness.

In May we’ll explore the idea of Making Space

Our work this month will be around decluttering our mind-body-life to make space for what we truly want and need, finding our own “enough” and having the courage to walk in it, and letting go of what no longer serves or making space for joy after heartache or life transition. I’ll offer up practical exercises to help us “make space” in various areas of life/work.

In June our focus will be on Cultivating CALM

We’ll take a mind-body-spirit perspective as we explore and apply habits and ideas to help us move through life with greater calm. We’ll talk about concrete strategies for building more whitespace and solitude into our lives and the WHY for this, we’ll talk about boundaried and joyful relationships, and we’ll also explore evidence-based lifestyle, nutrition, supplement, cognitive and emotional strategies for calming our bodies and minds.

July will be All About the Enneagram (this may change)

This month will be a deeper exploration of The Enneagram and teaching you new ways to see, helping you understand some of the deepest struggle and most beautiful strengths of your wiring, and learning to apply information of your dominant type to feel more confident in life, work, and relationships. The Enneagram has been one of the most life-changing tools I’ve used this past decade to really love myself well and handcraft my Life Vision – with courage, calm, and clarity.

“Finding you and your courses have been life-giving for me. I feel like it is a debt I will never be able to repay.” — Roxanne R

A monthly roadmap and dedicated guide just for you

Each month we walk through the following structure as we dive into our new topic and apply the work to our lives.

Week One// WHY

I’ll introduce the topic of the month and WHY it matters; we’ll examine our experience and thoughts about it, any compelling research, and we’ll get honest about where we’re at. Self-awareness is essential to sustainable and healthy growth.

Week Two // WHAT

We’ll start talking about WHAT we want for ourselves in this area (we’ll establish personal goals and intentions) while staying grounded in self-compassion and I’ll offer ideas for WHAT we can do to grow and begin practicing the concepts for the month.

Week Three // HOW

We’ll get more specific about HOW to apply the habits, tools, mindset shifts or the practical application of ideas (and how to sustain positive change) and we’ll address issues or resistance that come up; this is about taking imperfect action to move closer to who and how we choose to be in the world.

Week Four // Rest & Reflect

We need time to synthesize and notice what’s showing up for us, and we need time for actual rest. In Rest Week I’m offline though members are welcome to continue engaging with each other and the material. This week also allows time to catch up on videos/work from previous weeks. Week 4 of each module offers (optional) prompts to guide you in self-reflection along with resource ideas for further learning. Every three months we have an extra week to “Rest & Reflect.”

When you invest in this community, you also get…

The Brave & Beautiful community is not about stuffing our lives full to the brim with information; you already have full lives. Setting aside 7 hours per MONTH will allow you to engage with the material and participate in discussion, though some members spend more or less time. In this community, you will find ample time and space to discuss, reflect, and engage with the ideas in a gentle and encouraging manner. You also get support from me and each other when you feel stuck or need encouragement to keep going.

As a member of this inspirational community you will receive:

  • Educational focus on one topic per month to help you live with purpose, health & joy
  • An average of 2 group-coaching calls per month on the current topic (you do not have to join live)
  • PDF on the topic of the month with suggested action steps, resources ideas, and worksheets plus access to previous modules
  • Access to 4+ months of previous modules that you can download and keep
  • Guest interviews (some exclusive to the group) from interesting people walking their talk
  • Connection & opportunity to build relationships with growth-minded people
  • 20% off 1:1 consults for deeper, individualized support as needed/desired

The membership is capped at 50 women so that we can build a relationship and I can offer my attention in meaningful ways. Regitration is currently closed.

“I have loved Krista’s blog posts for years and now her written resources and the membership community. She has an incredible gift not only of words but also of really seeing into the struggles common to so many women. Krista doesn’t just leave us to struggle—she helps find a way to shift our mindset, look at our circumstances differently and help us find joy and celebrate the win, no matter how small. She is patient, knowledgeable and caring. The resources she writes are life-giving to me. I find myself learning something profoundly new and helpful each time I go through the materials. I have worked with her privately in the past and now I am enjoying the Brave and Beautiful membership community. Krista facilitates a safe space for people to share concerns and celebrates our joy and successes. The women in the group are supportive and helpful. They are the best cheerleaders. No one wants to leave anyone in struggle; however, no one forces anything.” —   Teresa C

 

Building meaningful relationships


Coaching calls
will be offered via FB Lives – Showing up live is absolutely not required as replays will be available to watch or listen to when you’re ready. I offer occasional Hot Seat Coaching calls in which up to 4 members are invited to join me face to face on a call for extra support in addressing a specific challenge or area of growth in their lives.

B&B members have the option of joining me live on Zoom for my monthly interviews with special guests. The topics of each interview are selected on purpose to offer further support and food for thought on the membership topic of the month.

I’ll be open to helping members form “listening partnerships” (kind of a buddy or support system for members who would love a monthly or biweekly call with someone who will listen and encourage) with each other but this will depend on the interest of the group. While I’ll be leading the group, I hope you’ll build a relationship with other members and glean encouragement and wisdom from each other as well.

As a community, we gather inside a private Facebook group (Facebook is required to join) – this is where you’ll receive your monthly PDF, applicable worksheets, join the FB lives (or watch the replays), ask me questions, and initiate dialogue with other members.

“I feel like this group has already helped me start living my own life, and for that, I thank you all!”      Cindy P

Is the Brave & Beautiful Community the right fit for me?

I love this beautiful gathering of women and believe it offers a unique opportunity to learn and grow together in a kind and supportive environment. But it’s not the right fit for everyone in every season.

The Brave & Beautiful Community is for women who:

  • Are in the messy middle of life
  • Are growth-minded, believe that we choose our response to life, and are tired of letting perfectionism, comparison, or fear be the boss of their life
  • Are interested in mind-body wellness and want to learn, chew on ideas, grow, stretch, and who believe (or are drawn to the idea that) every season of life offers new gifts and opportunity
  • Want to live with self-awareness and self-compassion and walk in quiet confidence and feel ready to take (imperfect) action to build “right-sized lives” of purpose, health, and joy
  • Feel a little weary or beat-up by life and are looking for community and support to continue showing up fully – with joy and purpose – to every single day and season of life

This community is not for women who:

  • Are in crisis, addiction, or newly diagnosed mental health conditions and need 1:1 professional support
  • Are looking for more personal, individualized, deeper support for their health or life (although you may join the membership and also work with me 1:1) to take action and experience positive growth
  • Are not yet ready to do the messy inner work to grow, stretch, and take personal responsibility for their response to life or don’t have 6 hours/month to engage with the material
  • Are looking for quick or superficial fixes for their pain or struggles
  • Don’t feel they can build healthy, respectful relationships with others who may come from a different viewpoint, lifestyle, or life experience

It takes courage to continue forging ahead with intention through all the ups and downs of life. To say yes to growing, stretching, becoming, and to keeping your heart soft as you go. Staying open to the beauty and gifts of life – choosing to witness and receive them – rather than staying stuck in the struggle or pain.

If you don’t feel “brave and beautiful” right now…

 

Before you go, I want you to know that if you don’t feel “brave and beautiful” right now – this group is exactly for you. For most of my life, I felt anything but. But over time, as I learned to show up through fear and finally decided I’m good enough, I realized that I always was far braver than I realized and that I am messy, imperfect, and beautiful too. So are you.

We can choose to SAY YES to showing up fully to our imperfect & beautiful lives.

Not sure if this is the right fit for you in this season of life? Reach out for a 20 min chat and we’ll figure it out together.

I look forward to connecting – and if you have any questions about my new community please reach out here.

“Krista’s blog simply speaks to me. It’s growth-minded, raw, & real. Sometimes I see myself living the self-care, mindfulness theme well, but other times I just want to move about my day and not overly focus on anything. I wasn’t sure about an online community because I am “offline” mostly. I feel the connectedness though! Gretchen Rubin talks honestly in her Happiness Project about how some days she doesn’t want to hold the door for that slower woman behind her. I appreciate Krista so much for continuing this journey. I really see it as her gift and thank her.” — Tara B

“I have followed Krista’s work for a couple years now. She has challenged me to see” how” I’m thinking, and that it’s OK not to be perfect in this messy life. The Brave and Beautiful Membership Community has shown me that others are also seeking answers to a messy life, while still being imperfect. I truly believe we are becoming “Community.” Thank You Krista O’Reilly Davi-Digui, for all your hard work, and leadership.” Deb Gates

THE HOPE MAP: Quiet the noise of comparison, perfectionism, and fear and show up fully (with joy and on purpose) to your imperfect & beautiful life.
I'll help you figure out how.
