Ready to DIY Your Flourish Journey?

At our core, we all want to show up and make our mark in this beautiful world.

But in the process, we often lose our equilibrium and we end up eating ourselves on the inside to contribute “out there.”
We long for more time. More space. More clarity.

To be shown what is ours alone to do and to know how to infuse our lives with elegant pauses.

To gift ourselves guilt-free time to recharge and renew. To relax the internal pressure. To feel our own “enoughness” – not as an intellectual idea but as a homecoming in our bodies.

To laugh more. To feel present to the people and places we love.

To feel so wholly satisfied in who we are and what we are doing that we lay down the habit of comparing and despairing.

To no longer feel like we are “missing” our right life. Living one lane over from the fullness that is our birthright.

Showing up and making fierce, brave, creative contributions in our communities or work lives and savoring the beauty and humble pleasures of the everyday.

Creating a life that fits us. Not too small. Not too big. Just right.

I See You

Courtney

Somewhere along the way, you started to believe that it wasn’t safe to stop trying so hard. Or to trust yourself – especially your authentic desires and longings, which can seem silly or superficial to your inner task-master. I know the struggle well because it was once mine. I have been there.

Hi I am Courtney

I created the DIY Flourish Digital Program because it’s possible to live a life in which you lay down the habit of compartmentalizing and instead feel like you get to show up with your whole, authentic self in every space: work, home and anywhere you feel called to go. I created Flourish to teach women how to make peace with that part of you that is never satisfied. I’m taking over a decade of professional, academic, and deep personal exploration and making it available to you wherever you live.

If we’re just meeting for the first time,

here’s what I want you to know about me and my work:

warrior pose

  • I have long been fascinated by the question of how our inner life shapes our work in the world and spent four years studying the intersection of spirituality and leadership/social entrepreneurship at Harvard, earning dual master’s degrees from the Divinity and Kennedy Schools.
  • I am a certified Life Coach through Martha Beck’s renowned coach training program. (She is a Master, Oprah’s life coach and as fun live as she is in her books.) I am also a certified holistic life coach through the Spencer Institute and have studied the Enneagram extensively through the Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition Community. I have a special interest in how our personality type is expressed somatically, or in our bodies.
  • I’ve hosted transformative retreats across the United States and internationally to sold-out gatherings of women who learn how they too can find ease and satisfaction in their personal and professional lives.
  • I am a recovering overachiever who totally knows the pain of getting caught in what I call “the gold-star economy” and pushing and striving your way through life.
  • I believe women living satisfied and spacious lives is a form of leadership with powerful ripple effects that help to create a better world. The kind of world I want for myself and for all of our children.
Program Components
 
figure out the box you are in

F – Figure Out the Box You Are In

This is the foundation of our work together. Without knowing those inner marching orders that keep pressing you forward at an unsustainable pace, we cannot begin to form new habits. The Enneagram, an ancient personality map, is the most incisive tool I have discovered for getting clear on your core motivations and most frequent stumbling blocks. There are nine distinct personalities, three of which lead with their head center of intelligence, three which lead with their hearts and three which lead with their gut or body intuition. The Enneagram doesn’t put you in a box. It shows you the box that you are already in.
learn to have a love affair with your work

L – Learn to Have a Love Affair With Your Work

What if your relationship with work was more like a passionate love affair rather than an exhausting to-do list that never seems to shrink? In this step, we are going to learn how to handle work envy (when you find yourself perennially feeling small in the face of others’ accomplishments), make space for new priorities and allow your “original medicine,” that unique mojo you are here to share, to emerge.
overcome your gremlins

O – Overcome Your Gremlins

What if your relationship with work was more like a passionate love affair rather than an exhausting to-do list that never seems to shrink? In this step, we are going to learn how to handle work envy (when you find yourself perennially feeling small in the face of others’ accomplishments), make space for new priorities and allow your “original medicine,” that unique mojo you are here to share, to emerge.
understand the language of your body

U – Understand the Language of Your Body

As an ambitious change-maker doing your thing out in the world, maybe you are afraid of getting sick at an inopportune moment. Or you find yourself continuously crashing once the big project or event is done. Maybe you feel depleted and frustrated by your body breakdowns, which keep you from reaching your goals or moving at the pace that you desire. In this step, we are going to identify several easy, DIY methods for keeping the stress in your life and body at a manageable level, as well as a few practical tips and resources for becoming the CEO of your own wellbeing (and who to recruit to be on your team). You have to be able to count on your body to support you in accomplishing what you are here to do and you need energy and resiliency to thrive in all aspects of your life.
reset with meditation

R – Reset With Meditation

This step offers several easy meditation techniques that you can use to reset whenever the pressure builds. Unable to quiet your mind? You have come to the right place! In this step, I unpack some of the most common roadblocks to starting your own meditation practice and introduce a range of meditation options to help you discover one that fits you perfectly in this season of your life.
immerse yourself when stress builds

I – Immerse Yourself When Stress Builds

This step gives you a moment to catch your breath. It is not about introducing a new tool. It is an invitation to resource yourself with a fresh practice the next time you can’t sleep or shut off the hamster wheel in your mind. (Remember step O? Those gremlins get louder when you are growing.) In this chapter, I describe nine centering practices, each of which corresponds with the Enneagram personality of the same number and has been designed to unravel some of the constriction felt by that particular type. However, all of these practices are helpful for anyone to use at any time. While we all have one home base of our personality type, we also experience the whole range of emotions and human struggles. Think of these practices like a menu you can choose from the next time nothing else seems to be working.
schedule your flourish calendar

S – Schedule Your Flourish Calendar

This is where we bring it all together. The Flourish Calendar is a foundational step to implementing the Flourish Formula in your own life. Imagine waking up feeling present, calm and at peace – and moving through your day, confident that you are focusing on the right things at the right times instead of feeling guilty or distracted. This step is your opportunity to customize a life and schedule that support you rather than the other way around. To do this we need elegant scaffolding: a greenhouse for those tender and beautiful shoots that want to grow in your personal, creative and work lives. This is how we nurture and ultimately share your greatest contributions: The Flourish Calendar. I’ll show you step-by-step how to create your own custom Flourish Calendar in as few as twenty minutes.
hold it lightly

H – Hold It Lightly

This step is simply a reminder that the way we hold these tools or practices is as important as what we do. If we make living slow or meditating another metric for evaluating ourselves (and setting ourselves up for failure), we end up adding stress rather than removing it. Hold it lightly reminds you that resiliency lies not in getting it perfect but in your willingness to try and to begin again.

PRAISE FOR

the Flourish Program

“Like receiving a massage for your whole life.”

The FLOURISH program was the reset I truly craved for my mind, body and spirit. It guided me back to a more calming and centered state in which my entire self needed so badly. My outlook and energy are more aligned and in sync. Plus, this was so ENJOYABLE. Each week I could feel my soul crave the new material and excited to put everything into practice even when it was hard at times. The impact for me personally was extremely high. I can honestly say when I wrapped up the FLOURISH program, my ROI more than doubled. The content provided specific practices for me to experiment with that aligned with my stress areas. The overall effect was so soothing! I felt like I had received a massage after each call or each time I read a chapter from the book!

“Flourish Coaching Program is life-changing”

As I am reading and soaking in what I learned in your book and program and tweaking my daily life and imagining my Flourish calendar and seeing myself in my Enneagram type and the neglected side of it and having epiphanies….it’s all because YOU WROTE THIS BOOK! This program is awesome, life giving, life changing. And the strange part of that is, in a weird way, it doesn’t seem new or novel or beginner in anyway- it feel ancient… In a sense it seems like it’s been here in the world and it’s a resource that one can build on AS A BASE for a really fulfilling life and THAT is what is so amazing- the flow and the guidance and the language and the care- it is solid like a big sequoia tree. It’s just so integrated and complete that it’s hard to believe you just did this! I don’t know if my words are saying how truly impressed I am by the love and care in which you share your gifts with all of us, and how talented you are at what you do.

“Coaching with Courtney is a wonderful investment.”

Courtney is natural at integrating so many tools that you can simply relax into the process. It all just flows! I am so grateful that I got connected to her. Coaching with Courtney works and is a wonderful investment in yourself. I’m doing EVERYTHING I set out to do when I started coaching with her: meditating daily, writing/reading daily, exercising 3x/week (including running, yoga, and weight training), getting tons of sleep, taking on little creative projects here and there, and enjoying my work. Lots of plans coming up and feeling content for now. Thank you!!

“Coaching with Courtney reduces overwhelm and creates calm”

I feel calmer. I keep thinking through the statement from a couple of times ago: ‘I’m not here to grind through promotions.’ And I remember the first time we talked I was just completely overwhelmed with life. I’m busy right now, have a lot of stuff to do, and am tired from a lot of travel but I don’t feel overwhelmed now. Those are the lessons I’m really hoping to hold onto. I don’t need to grind through life so hard, I don’t need to be so busy, I need calm and quiet. And how can I feel brave, balanced, and boundless? What are my action plans for those?

“Courtney helped me find more happiness + healing.”

Upon completing my coaching experience with Courtney, I am ready to dive into my life again with the confidence I needed to discover within myself. It has been an incredible journey with her and we’ve discussed everything from meditation to life cycles to essential oils to nature therapy. After a year of experiencing trauma and painful relationships, this was the perfect time to search inwards for the answers I had been looking for. She’s been a gift in my life, and I’m so proud of myself for working so hard with her towards happiness and healing.

“Coaching with Courtney left me happier + more grounded.”

Coaching with Courtney is like taking a class about You. You find out things you like, and things You don’t like – about yourself, about the world around you, about patterns that You get stuck in. It has been wonderful to talk to someone smart, caring, & thoughtful to work through things, as it is not always so easy from the inside to see how you are stuck. As a result of our coaching sessions I feel more in control of my life. When stressful things happen I now have a very practical toolkit of what to do that works for me. I have also been happier and more grounded. Meditation has been an unexpected and awesome bonus.

“Courtney makes self-awareness a habit.”

Now I feel better. It is easier to wake up in a better mood. I used to frequently go to bed with a hurt on my heart and now I can process it, with meditation. It is easy to be a snowball rolling down hill. Now I can stop. I recognize when I am spiraling, or being too overbearing and I can push the pause button. These months working together have made self-awareness a habit that I will carry with me into the rest of my life.

“The Flourish Program was a life-changing intervention for me.”

On a personal level, talking about my Enneagram type and working through the guilt and shame I have carried for a long time was a life-changing intervention for me. I still go to that hard place, but I find myself kicking my shoes of, grounding myself, and searching for the beauty within. It has actually been a spiritual change for me. One of surrender and understanding.

“A life coach with a Harvard education and achievement path I can relate to”

I’m a huge fan of yours because your story/delivery/persona are a great fit for me. I’m a bit of an achievement-snob for lack of a better term so a life coach with a Harvard education and achievement path I can relate to is a better fit than someone who for example never left the town she grew up in, was a stay at home mom right out of school, etc. I will reiterate it is SO important in my opinion you are religion-neutral so that both religious and non-religious people can benefit. You do this super well.

—JENI NELSON, PHOENIX, AZ
