From Amanda: "With a background in theology, human development and mindful somatic therapies I cultivate a practice of mindfulness in my own life and help clients do the same.  After years of experience working with trauma, both domestically and internationally, I found that my nervous system was always on edge and that the practice of paying attention to the present moment had the profound ability to decrease my experience of stress and anxiety and increase my capacity for peace.  Since starting my private practice I have focused my work on helping clients move through suffering towards a place of peace in their own lives."

And part of community is being able to get together and have a good time. So that's what we do.

What if we had a community of supportive doers to walk beside us on our journey?

Welcome to DOERS.

Doers is a series of monthly meet-ups hosted by The Weller Society where small business owners, creatives, and entrepreneurs hang out and share their ideas, experiences, and insights into a variety of topics. 

For this month's session, we will be talking about your most valuable resource: your time; how you can manage it, how you can organize it better, and ultimately, how you can find freedom to have the kind of life you want to have.

Join us every Last Tuesday for drinks and conversation.

The Life Changing Power of Knowing | Enneagram Workshop

Enneagram

Have you ever wished you had a cheat code to understanding yourself and other people?

Welcome to the Enneagram.

Originally an oral tradition, come learn about the Enneagram the way it was meant to be learned--through discussion with others. In recent decades, the Enneagram has gained popularity in the West. But this is an ancient personality typing system that has been used for centuries as a tool of self-awareness and self-discovery, describing 9 core types. Life Coach Ashlee Sikorski will be our guide through the Enneagram during this 2 day workshop. She is a Professional Coach here in Portland, OR and had been studying this tool for 6 years.


Friday Evening | 6-8pm | During this portion of the event, we will discuss each type and participate in activities which elicit greater awareness, all while enjoying drinks on tap.

Saturday Morning | 8:30am-12pm | Continuation of discussion from Friday, dive deeper into each type and its characteristics, hear unique perspectives on each type from those who identify with the number. We will end our time with a light seasonal meal catered by Rikki Wynn of the Chatty Hen.

We invite you to dive deeper into understanding how you interact with the world. Join us at The Weller Society and discover how the Enneagram can help you connect more others and your truest self.

How to Design Your Business to Create Freedom, Flexibility and Fulfillment

298A4843.jpg

Are you buttoned up on the outside and a mess behind the scenes? 

Does your life work for you or is your life about your work?

Most of us got into this whole entrepreneur thing because we craved freedom and flexibility in our schedules and the chance to do fulfilling work in our businesses. But when you're hustling to grow, these are often the first things to go. That's why it's so important to intentionally design your business to support your lifestyle, not take away from it.

Join us for a live workshop as business coach Ashley Gartland teaches us how to design your business to suit your lifestyle. She'll walk us through the simple steps to make a priority-focused schedule so you can use yours to create freedom and flexibility in your life. Then she'll show us how to make time in that schedule to do fulfilling, high-impact work so you can grow your business without overcomplicating things or compromising the quality of your life.
