What kind of impact could you make? What personal and global transformation could be possible?

 

Female leaders often come to me in overwhelm, struggling to make the kind of impact in the world they deeply wish to make.

“I struggled with my professional value.”

“I felt unfocused and anxious.”

“It was a dream, a pie-in-the-sky desire.”

As women, we know what it feels like to lead within systems that promote overwork, quick, frantic decisions, and short-term thinking.

Add to that our need to juggle multiple responsibilities, our families, and the attention-draining landscape of modern life…

… And this is why each day can feel like a never-ending fire drill.

In this world we’re often navigating alone, it’s easy to find ourselves playing smaller than we really are, cycling between periods of overwhelm and retreat, being everywhere and nowhere and unable to work with the true complexity of the issues and systems we work within.

We may get glimpses of our true power — and we’re doing some good work in the world for sure — but how can we progress in ways that don’t sacrifice our own health, family, and relationships? 

Can we refuse to replicate the craziness and disconnection that got the world to where it’s at in the first place and define our work and life on new terms?

It’s our time… 

We’re entering a golden age.

A new revolution where women actively co-create the communities, organizations, and systems of the future.

If you’ve already altered your inner worlds (for the better) and discovered the limits of what you can accomplish alone or on someone else’s timeline, I invite you to consider joining the Dojo. Traditionally used in Japanese martial arts, the word dojo means a place for immersive learning or meditation. The Revolutionary Woman Dojo is not a productivity-based group or a recorded online course. It’s definitely not a meeting based around a to-do list.

The Dojo

is a practice path. A live, communal gathering ground, buzzing with the electric energy of women at the edge of their highest contribution.

 

What I’m really clear about is that the Dojo is truly a leadership space.

“There are so many business programs out there.  We are bombarded with programs but nobody talks about the essence of leadership and what it really means to lead from a whole human, whole body perspective. 

In the Dojo, we explore what Revolutionary Leadership really looks like for a new world that we’re all looking to create. A world that is truly built on the principles of creativity, innovation, sustainability, honoring our real human experience…. Really looking to tend to the soil that will be a true birthplace for these things to organically emerge from each of us.”

Susheela Ramachandran, Founder Divine Feminine Playground.

 

The Dojo is a nest and a container of belonging where you can:

  • Explore that deep desire tugging at you to do something big (write a book, launch a world changing program, lead massive transformation, make a baby – anything).
  • Play at the edges of what it looks like, feels like and acts like to take revolutionary action in the world.
  • Practice showing up as your full self without a mask and without hiding your intuitions or sensitivities.
  • Integrate your highest spiritual expression and wise, practical action.
  • Create sane, sustainable structures for yourself and your passions that get you being who you need to be to create what you’re here to create.
  • Become more in alignment with who you are and watch the artificial divisions we place between facets of ourselves dissolve.
  • Live a more fully expressed and joy filled life as you align more and more with your highest self.

Hélène Branch, Canada
Strategic Organizational Consultant

Week to week we’re creating a space for showing up in our truth and being a conscious witness to our own evolution as pioneering leaders.

There are so few spaces where you can show up fully as yourself and stand in the truth of the moment we’re in, both collectively as a species and individually as women working at the frontier and front lines of leading transformation.


 

Katerina Daniel, Canada
Executive Leader

Before I came to the Dojo

I felt alone in my journey and often would think I needed to quit my job because I didn’t fit. Through my experience in The Dojo I’ve realized this thing I was reaching for – this answer – is actually unfolding now. I’m no longer a lone navigator, I’m journeying through space, step by step, inside a community that reflects back and engages me. When I was alone, I couldn’t see this or contextualize it.

Karen Pohlman, USA
Award Winning Author & Publisher: Be Unmessable CEO, Another Way LLC

In the Dojo are real people who are willing to be vulnerable, people who have big visions of what they want to do in the world and are making good money, and where it’s OK to cry and feel things, too.
A sampling of our in-the-world results
  • Writing a book (that was just an inkling before) and becoming an Award Winning Author and Publisher
  • Designing and launching a global movement
  • Bravely speaking about her spiritual work in professional settings and cultures where that’s still risky territory
  • Launching a global personal development company
  • Finding a true home in a community for the first time ever
  • Refocusing from “doing lots of stuff” to what is truly fulfilling for her
  • Leaving toxic relationships and organizations for good
  • Taking a stand for her true gifts and being received, accepted, and being known for them.

What will yours be?


 

The Dojo

meets you where you’re at

We begin our journey together

by establishing a deep and more integrated connection to the transformation you’re here to cause – the beautiful future you’re creating.

Week on week we cultivate the space to experience the medicine of leading from our whole-selves. We consciously tend to the soil of this emerging future using the power and insight of the 4 Square, the core transformation map within the Dojo that acts as our personal navigator orienting and re-orienting us towards:

– The transformation we’re here to cause
– How we want to show up
– How we want to feel
– The conscious actions and boundaries we’ll create
– As we become more and more powerful creators of radical positive change

We become conscious witnesses to our individual and collective evolution as we build maps and bridges towards our highest possibilities.

We experience awe, wonder, deep connection and aligned knowing, spaciousness, the future we are dreaming of – we make magic together and we laugh (side-splitting, cheek hurting laughter)!

We learn to not just persevere as agents of change, but to thrive and dance with joy at the edges of our life and work.  

We learn that courage isn’t an individual act – it’s a collective act and when you’re surrounded by fierce, pioneering women from across the planet anything becomes possible. 

We can’t wait for you to join us

 

More in-the-world results from 2021

  • Becoming a trusted resource for her community
  • Finding her professional family
  • Cultivating the bravery to ask to be paid at her true rate (and getting paid!)
  • Designing and delivering programming at the leading edge of human development and begin to leave behind easy, bread-and-butter services that were unfulfilling
  • Leaving a challenging situation to develop her global company economically empowering women
  • Exploring the world of accomplishing without pushing, hustling, rushing, or forcing
  • Experiencing herself as an asset wherever she is…
    And many many essence-capturing photoshoots, soul-stirring websites (and even purple hair!)
What will yours be?

Founder, MYRYL

The words that come up for me is that this is the first community I’m a part of that feels like HOME…

I’ve been a part of other communities over the years and there were many good ones that contributed to my growth but none that made me feel this way. Each time I’m in Morna’s presence I feel a sense of calm and optimism, so being a part of the Dojo was a no brainer for me.”

 

Victoria Lucía Montemayor

The Storytelling Specialist

It’s a lifelong dream of mine to be in a container of this calibre…

I have full body goosebumps when I tune into the potential in this community which is not North America centric and not white woman centric. I have looked at and considered and participated in many groups. Many I’ve found are too spiritual and lack grounding in practical action – others are too focused on action at the expense of our whole-human experience. It is so rare to find a community like this that integrates our highest expression with wise and practical action.


Ellen Monsees Lansburg

Author and Thought Leader

This community has guided me further into my truth.

Before I joined the Dojo I’m not sure I would have identified myself as a Thought Leader, but now I do – this community has guided me further into my truth and surrounded me with fierce support and the courage to take a stand for the importance and power of my work in the world.”

Saying the Dojo has been life-changing is a huge understatement

Beginning with the Dojo orientation, my big dreams that seemed a decade away at best became something that could happen now… and now 8 months later, the foundation is laid and I am building! We have opened a Community Art Collective and are planning for the creation of our eco-village, and truly none of that would have been possible without the support of Morna and the Dojo community. Every week I look forward to coming into this space that is empowering, vulnerable, and really flexes my “revolutionary muscles.” We laugh, cry, celebrate, and fall apart, and every week I finish the Dojo feeling stronger as a person.

Tara Barnes, Athens Greece. Founder Green Rainbow Collective

“There’s something intuitive that Morna brings that is hard to describe. It’s holistic, and it’s an integration of growth, spirituality, and community – I’ve never seen it before. She’s kind of the orchestrator, the conductor, and she wants to make this music with us. She’s not the puppet master; she is creating this with us. And that’s pretty spectacular to have somebody with a vision who wants to be a part of people’s journeys. Not just a guide, but to actually journey with us.”

Bernice Williams
Intentional Connector
Founder of the Inner Wisdom Project

I am growing more and more into ME with the support of Morna and this community and that is a revolutionary act.

The diversity of people in the Dojo has taught me that, while we may have different paths and come from different cultures we are bonded together by a collective thread of fire and passion for being of service in the world.  In the Dojo it’s ok if sometimes I don’t believe in myself YET, because I’m surrounded by women who believe in ME!  Morna is the driving force that keeps us coming back, and creates a container where I know I’m valued and where just showing up is enough – I mean where else do you get that in the world? 

Kim Standeven 
Founder, Author, Speaker and creator of Your Core Four

In the Dojo I found my people.

The Dojo gives me courage, because I see the community as a net and network I can count on of people who genuinely care.  In the Dojo I found my people.  A sense of belonging that is beyond words.  I never feel judged, or ‘othered’ – I am home.  Unlike other communities or collective spaces, I never feel like I don’t belong here.  I have no hesitation or anxiety coming into the Dojo, even though there’s lots of different cultures, people, and opinions – I know that how I show up is never going to be attacked, judged or othered.  That is RICH soil from which to cultivate and bring forth the work I’m here to do on the planet.

FAQs

How do I know this community is right for me?

Pause, Tune in…what is your intuition telling you?  If you’re getting a nudge, follow it and book in to chat with Morna.

How is the Dojo delivered?

As we’re a diverse, global community – we meet on Zoom.  AND you’ll have access to a private virtual community (on Facebook for now, but we’ll be moving to our own app in 2022) for on the spot community support.

What is the commitment I'm making? What if I can't attend every week?

The Dojo runs weekly for most weeks of the year (we have built in breaks and down time).  The Dojo is a Live communal practice ground and your commitment to showing up as close to 100 percent of the time is one of the core ways you’ll receive (and offer) maximum transformation in our community.  Your consistent presence is important to others, just as their consistent presence is important to you.  Of course there are times in life when attending isn’t possible or the right thing for you to do for your self care – that’s ok, we work with whatever arises.
