Introduction.

Welcome to the Slow Love Movement.

This movement is an antidote to the busyness epidemic we are experiencing in our time. I'm surrounded by people who are overwhelmed and exhausted by a life that only seems to demand more & more of them, while their satisfaction & happiness declines. Giving you even more "work" to do, felt to me to be completely counterproductive. 

I wanted for people to have a resource that allowed them to fundamentally transform their relationships, by taking small sustainable steps... and so The Slow Love Movement was born. 

The place to start is here, at the beginning, with The First 30. Each day there is a reflection, an action, or a new layer to an existing practice. These are very carefully designed to complement your current lifestyle so that you still have plenty of time, energy, and attention for the rest of your life.

This program has very little reading, no videos, and minimal 'learning' to do. That makes it super easy to implement, and interrupts the pattern of best intentions being derailed when life happens. Don't let it's simplicity bely the power of The First 30!

Because long term passion, meaning, and freedom are built on the strong foundation of small, mundane, daily acts of love. 

Prefer to Set & Forget?

I know what it is like to join a new program, or membership site, and get totally flooded by all the content.

On one hand it can be super exciting to read all the new things, but on the other it can lead to overwhelm because you just don't know where to start. I have designed this Step-By-Step program to literally step you through the entire membership site. 

Simply sign up for this automation - The First 30 - and I will keep prompting you via email to do the next thing. Easy peasey. Obvs you can unsubscribe and subscribe as many times as you like - just keep stepping through at your own pace.

Relax into Slow.

This is a slow movement. Allow yourself to relax into it.

It is not better to 'finish' because the power is in bringing your attention to today.

Take Small Steps.

It is better to do one thing every day, than to try and do all the things.

It is the cumulative effect of small actions over time that creates true intimacy & connection.

Be Consistent.

Each day is designed to be small & actionable. When you learn a new action,  do that everyday from then on.

If you like, you can always go back a day or back to the beginning. You have all the time you need.

Integrate.

Sometimes it takes a while to integrate new things into the rest of your life.

It is better to integrate one thing well, than to rush to the next thing.

Be Inconsistent.

Life will get in the way.

It's likely that at some point you will stop for some reason or other. That's to be expected. Simply begin again wherever you like.
