Sign-up for my newsletter if you'd like to know of the next FLOURISH class.
Flourish offers the soil within which you can flourish; and,
Flourish teaches you how to prepare the soil in which others can flourish.
Flourish is for all women, women leaders & executives, and coaches, therapists, & other service professionals.
If you are part of a cohort, team, circle, or group of women and would like to experience Flourish together, online or in-house, please get in touch. This work is even more powerful and transformational to experience as a group of women who are already familiar and supportive.
flour·ish ˈfləriSH/ verb
(of a person, animal, or other living organism)
to grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of
a particularly favorable environment.
Flourish IS this favorable environment that
grows human beings in a healthy, vigorous way.
"FLOURISH has had a profoundly positive influence on me in so many ways! I have already grown so much from this course. Even though we are not in the same room together I still feel the palpable energy of a circle of women and nothing is lost from using the technology of Zoom. Julie’s heart, authenticity and skills come through to create a deep connection with each other. One particular lesson has been to begin to understand the feminine and her beautiful power, my beautiful power. Another, is seeing how this brilliant feminine power has been squelched and feared by the patriarchy and the effects on not only the collective Soul but our individual Soul. However, I am no longer disheartened because Julie and her course empowers us with the best of answers.
Julie, you have given us hope for change in so many ways, including deep psycho spiritual exercises such as the labyrinth. Describing the results of these profound exercises are limited by language yet felt so deeply in the soma and reveal my intuition. There are also the more concrete exercises such as the time and stress categorizing we did yesterday which was so helpful. I will walk way with a lifetime of how to navigate and understand so many questions and problems as well as actions I can take. FLOURISH is not only personally transforming but a whole reference library I get to keep." BH, Psychotherapist
The most important relationship you have is that with the source of Life that lies within you. Life grows and nourishes you. Life asks you to be fully alive and present, and in return, life offers you the opportunity to know the full experience of being human.
Call it Soul, Self, Essence, or Life Force, there is a personal creative resource within you that fuels your full potential and possibility as a passionate human being. How would it be to trust in and bring out your joy, compassion, and deep creativity by bringing the power of your own life force into this world?
You have this incredible power within you, but to know it and express it you must come to give it your focus and attention. By doing so, you say YES to life itself, YES to your own existence, YES to joy, and YES to the dignity and honoring of all Beings.
Flourish has been designed to do exactly this. But flourish is more than this. Flourish is also the place where you can learn how to develop the soil in which others can grow and flourish. This is truly what we are here to do as leaders in these times.
Flourish will guide us out from under the harshness of patriarchal influence and out into the spacious web of our earthly, soulful existence.
YOU want to flourish.
You want your loved ones to flourish.
You want your community, company,
or team to flourish.
You want the world and the planet to flourish.
You're in the right place.
Flourish ignites your creative life force - the power that brings you joy and can effect loving change in the world.
For each of us to flourish, we must...
- be seen as someone who matters, someone who is valuable..
- know we are worthy of kindness and love.
- feel we belong.
- be held as someone whose life and expression are integral to the health of the whole.
- be nurtured, nourished, and even cherished so that our full potential is brought forth into the world as it was meant to.
- be encouraged to grow and transform courageously beyond our fears.
This is what we will experience in Flourish and this is how we will learn to lead.
Life is meant to flourish. We're meant to relate, connect, express, give and receive.
In our current paradigm, some get to flourish more than others, but we need the creative brilliance that flows into the world when everyone does.
“If the world is to be healed through human efforts, I am convinced it will be by ordinary people, people whose love for this life is even greater than their fear, people who can open to the web of life that called us into being, and who can rest in the vitality of that larger body.”
In our world right now...
... so much is going through a profound dissolving. Institutions, norms, rules, and agreed upon ways of being are eroding. We feel the effects of this, but what makes this harder to be with is the lack of focus on what we are creating in its place, as well as the difficulty we have in staying connected to our joy and compassion.
This is where Flourish comes in.
When we realize the possibility we have to effect change as human beings by coming into direct realization of the creative source within, we can bring forth solutions that serve the whole of life. We begin to lead for a change that will honor our human possibility and dignify all of life.
This is our opportunity as women leaders: to embody the feminine principle, not just to give women equal footing but to be that which honors and nurtures human beings back toward a state of flourishing. We begin to do this by honoring and dignifying ourselves and nurturing ourselves back to a state of flourishing.
"Each woman who gives birth to herself and responds to what life is asking her to accomplish, contributes to the survival of our species and the diminishment of human suffering."
~ Anne Baring
As leaders who trust in human possibility, our invitation is to...
- Learn to trust in the basic goodness and possibility of every human being.
- Awaken the innate creative potential and compassion that exists within ourselves, so we support those we lead in doing so.
- Honor and dignify our individual and shared humanity, as well as our powerful diversity.
- Lead for and support creativity, collaboration, compassion, and inclusion.
- Ensure those whom we lead have the opportunity to flourish as they were created to be, exactly as they hunger to be.
- Rekindle a love for this life that is greater than our fears.
- Come to trust and rest in the web of existence that has called us here.
As women leaders, together we can...
- realize a deep compassion that allows us to open to the needs of the world, whether it's the world at large, the world of our organization, the world of our neighborhoods, the world of our families, or our own vast world of self.
- rediscover our innate knowing that everything is interrelated and interdependent.
- reawaken to the source of creative insight within that can answer the questions we face as a singular human being and as a species.
- discover how best to guide people, communities, and organizations to flourish in generative, emergent ways.
- support the creative, communal power of people who've gathered to grow and serve.
It is time for us to come fully alive by marrying the truth of our full humanity with our awakened creative potential - our soul.
Our natural resourcefulness is born out of our capacity to be creative in every situation where we Do Not Know.
When we don't know, we step into a place of possibility - human possibility infused with the intelligence of life itself.
Flourishing is contagious, generative, and (r)evolutionary.
For the past fifteen years working as a coach, mentor, and educator, I've created environments in which individuals and and groups could flourish. By bringing together personal and leadership development, powerful curriculum from Stanford University, and a depth of listening that tunes in to the whole person and whole group, those I've worked with have come to reawaken and reclaim their innate capability for deep insight and active compassion. A partial list...
Community members affected by the Sandy Hook Tragedy
Family members who lost loved ones on 9/11
And marketers, medical advocates, coaches, and many more...
People like you, from many different walks of life, in a variety of life situations, learned this powerful, proven process. Using the tools and practices offered, these students reawakened an innate wholeness and creative potential. And many have gone on to create environments in which others now flourish.
You'll leave FLOURISH with:
- an intimate awareness of your essential nature drawn from your own dynamic experiences.
- an understanding of purpose that is simple yet uniquely yours.
- tools to continue to use in your own personal life, as well as to use with those you lead, coach, mentor.
- a map/guideline of how to navigate your own creative process and any challenges you will meet in your life.
- an understanding of how to BEGIN anything new, even things that scare you.
- exercises and practices to help you deepen your ability to navigate the unknown and uncertain future.
- 9 in-context practices to deepen your learning in all of the areas of your life.
- a new way to see yourself in context to the greater world around you that gives you a palpable sense of belonging, as well as a clear understanding of the reciprocity inherent in Life.
- an experience of your inner world and a beautiful way to navigate it.
- a powerful way to hold your clients, employees, direct-reports in a state of total acceptance and love so they too can open to life and transform how they are and express in the world. This one takes great awareness and compassion. This is how I coach. We'll practice together.
Tentative Course Schedule & Content
The curriculum of Flourish runs along 3 tracks.
Track 1: As you, you'll reawaken your personal creative resource that can guide you to navigate uncertainty and flourish in the various aspects of your life.
Track 2: As a leader and/or service professional, you'll learn how to create and support the conditions for others' reconnection to their personal creative resource.
Track 3: As a woman, you'll see more closely how the feminine principle moves and what her emergence is showing us.
We'll set the stage for our time together and begin to experience the power of your personal inner resource - your soul.
We will experience our deep nature and the connected nature of life. We'll explore the need for the development of people, the nature of true power, and the spiritual qualities necessary for these times: compassion, creative insight, and the understanding of the nature of life itself - different than the nature of the man-made systems in which we interact. We'll then look at an overview of our time together.
Reclaim your natural, essential power from within.
We dive deep into the experiential nature of this course by experiencing our essential nature within. This is the key to leading in these times. EVERYONE has a source within that is creative, resilient, resourceful, compassionate, joyful, and loving.
As a leader, it is imperative you come to trust the power of creative resourcefulness within yourself, as well as learn how to support others in knowing and trusting their own resilient power, a power-from-within that we live alongside our sisters.
Discover the one thing that holds you back and how to soften its hold on you.
Judgment is the number one thing that keeps people from acting on and completing their dreams and visions. Learn exactly what judgment is, how it is created within you, how it works, and how to soften, quiet, and even liberate it so you can be and express the power that flows from within you. We'll also find the power and clarity of the mind when it is objective and discerning.
Find within yourself the true power of 'Not Knowing' and learn what true power is. Uncover how you currently navigate challenges, the true 'nature of'/'reason for' the obstacles that life brings you, and how to shift the way you navigate what's in front of you.
Learn how to move through uncertainty consciously and relationally, in communication with Life. Learn to trust in and feel supported by others and by existence itself. Shift behaviors from feeling you must do everything yourself to accessing the field of possibility all around you. You can only do what you are truly here to do by living from a place of deep connection to everything rather than individual separation and isolation.
Here, mid-course, we learn about, and come into relationship with, the fabric of what truly holds us as human beings. We sink down into Soul, the deep well within.
Hone your ability to be fully in the world through vital awareness and embodied presence. Come into relationship with the deep intelligence that sustains you, and that sustains all of life in order to serve the whole of life. Here we bring ourselves down into the body, bringing our mindful awareness down into the whole of the body.
Deepen and evolve your relationship to yourself and to the world at large.
We'll explore your deepest values and the qualities of your own Soul, so that you can embody who you are and what matters to you...so that you can live what you are here to live.
This week, we go deeper into the organizational, cultural, and societal effects of Judgment and how to begin to liberate them.
We dive deeper into the Voice of Judgment and how it shows up in the world. We explore how understanding the nature of conditioning, and how to liberate it, is crucial to healing the sense of separation we are currently experiencing as human beings.
We enter the heart of relationship and how to be together in the world in new ways.
We explore relationship through the lived expression of personal creativity, joy, compassion, community, and the understanding of 'one diamond - many facets'. Here we bring together purpose, life intelligence, power from within, and collaboration to co-create in a new structure.
Human wholeness & the wholeness of the world - developing a deep foundation of self worth through the four corners that serve as its foundation.
Learn and develop the four corners that make up your personal sense of self-worth, so that you begin to embrace your humanity and humanity as a whole. This is the foundation of how we flourish. Prosperity. Self-worth. True, natural, organic abundance. Here we as leaders can know our own worth, value, and dignity, while supporting others to grow into people who know their own worth, value, and dignity - as well as the worth, value, and dignity of all of life.

I've been exploring the Feminine since the late 1990's. It's been a long, deep, both mysterious and mystical journey. Over these years, the feminine has been revealing herself to this world again and we are now beginning to truly witness her reemergence. This personal inner journey to come home to soul and down into my body has, of course, informed all of my work.
I'm a certified coach and have trained as a coach through multiple coaching programs. I'm also a certified Creativity in Business facilitator.
I've been teaching at Stanford University for twelve years, ten years of which was teaching a course on Creativity & Leadership.
Many clients tell me I am much more than a coach and teacher. They've offered these, but of course none of them truly capture what I do:
Mentor. Spiritual Advisor. Guide. I do deep soul work. Powerful transformation work. All done through a depth of love that holds everything as sacred. Nothing in you needs to be fixed. Everything within you longs to be loved. This is the loving path of deep transformation.
What I do is hard to put into words, but what I feel is more important is the space I create so that the innate, divine intelligence within you can do what it desires to do - grow and transform and emerge into the world as the beautiful creation you already are.
"My experience of your work is it accesses a dimension of ourselves we don't frequently access.
For me its like technicolor embodied soul exploration. ...you most definitely open a portal for all of us."
- Writing Raw participant
"Experiencing Julie speak is like sitting at the feet of a High Priestess... Her words issue a fierce alert:
Pay attention. Listen. You need to hear this."
- Tricia Karp
Do you offer scholarships?
Yes. I offer scholarships for half-tuition to women who apply. Women of Color will receive priority in the selection process. Contact me for details.
How much time will this take each week?
Each call is 90 minutes. In between calls, you'll practice a Live-With - an in-context practice for learning applied to your daily life, and read that week's PDF. All together, approximately three to four hours, although that can vary with how deep you want to dive into the work.
Must I attend all of the calls?
Not at all. But the more calls you can come to, the more you'll get out of the course...and the more you'll have the opportunity to share your journey, challenges, & unfolding.
I work with others and am wondering what I will be able to use with my clients after taking Flourish?
We'll be using many tools, practices, and experiential exercises throughout the course. We will also be studying how to be with clients/people in a way that allows their own somatic, systemic intelligence to become aware of itself so that the system can transform in the way it organically does. My hope is that you'll find some other tools and ways to be with your clients to support them in their unfolding.
***Do you offer refunds?
No. Your registration is a commitment to the course. If after attending two calls you feel this course is not a fit or something unexpected comes up in your life, you are welcome to use the total cost toward one-on-one coaching or something else I offer down the line.
I have a question that’s not answered here.
Please email Julie [at] juliedaley[dot] com and I will do my best to respond quickly.
I'm still not sure this might be right for me.
If you are still not sure, take a moment to feel for resonance in your body. Is there a longing, a nudge, to know yourself in this way? Having a bit of fear is normal. We haven't really been taught to trust these aspects of ourselves as women, and we haven't been taught to trust our nudges. But...we must learn to trust the nudge.
