... to feel fully expressed and completely fulfilled

Entrepreneurs and Artists

Who feel inspired as free spirits, but tied down by convention, and who ‘do’ business while ‘becoming’ authentically expressed!

Therapists, Counselors, and Coaches

Who dare to face inward for possibilities, and create ‘outside the box’, yet feel at ease ‘inside.’

iNtuitive-Feeling Type Women

Who know they are ‘the box’ –– inner and outer sides –– creases, edges, and folds, and who own ‘the box’ as a kaleidoscope of self-reflecting mirrors.

 

imagine feeling safe, seen, and supported...

...without feeling selfish

As iNtuitive-Feeling type women, we often have a lingering but hush-hush feeling of not being recognized and validated, which keeps us from expressing ourselves fully in many areas of life.

This feeling creates internal stress, which if not identified and relieved eventually leads to sustained problems like mental rumination, emotional imbalance, physical maladies, and spiritual disaffection.

Imagine feeling completely safe, seen, and supported in all of who you are, without ever worrying that some gnarly judgment is just around the corner.

Intuitive Feeling Type Woman

With just a handful of calls to iNtuitive Conversations...

... that is what happens in our Bravely Being You virtual village every day

speak your truth, celebrate your voice, and feel the love

Intuitive-Feeling Woman

We give every iNtuitive-Feeling type woman the space to speak her unique truths, so she can celebrate her original voice in self-honoring ways, without shrinking in shame or cringing from judgments.

Many lives have been transformed here, because we recognize that we are a select minority of women whose intense complexity of thoughts and Feelings has rarely been identified or supported, and never fully appreciated.

For the first time, we have support to embrace the possibility that our idiosyncrasies might signal a rare kind of insight, or even a special sort of genius. And we are open to the possibility that we are meant to share our innate super-powers with the world.

feel the joy of being respected, just by being you

Hi, I’m Shayla Roberts…
initiator of Bravely Being You ...and here’s my story in eight brief chapters:

unnamed (4)
  • Chapter 1. Odd One Out

    No one knew it at the time, of course, but I was born an iNtuitive-Feeler (INFJ)… a very rare bird, in a Sensing-majority world. As a child, the things I thought and did consistently elicited responses like, “You’re making that up!” … or…“You don’t know what you’re talking about!” … or… “Don’t get too big for your britches!” Looking back, I realize that from the age of seven, I have longed for a place to feel accepted and seen for who I am...like a village where each neighbor would patiently hear my story and help me grow into my mental and emotional complexity.

  • Chapter 2. Faking It

    An emotional zombie by fourteen, I was incredibly lonely and depressed. I knew how to project a poised manner, so I could fake social competence, but inside, I felt silently alienated. And, I was secretly terrified that I would NEVER find a place to rest in a sense of true ‘belonging.’ In high school, my considerable talents and abilities saved me from feeling completely side-lined by my Sensing-majority, teenage peers, but it was my creative drive and my undying curiosity about what makes people tick that kept me connected to life.

  • Chapter 3. Soldier On

    In my twenties, I gave birth to three children, continued my higher education, engaged in a self-directed study of psychology and spiritual systems, and toggled together the earliest stages of what was to become my life’s work. By learning about, and teaching what I needed to learn, I helped other secretly marginalized people like me embrace the notion of self-love as essential to our ability to thrive. Coming into the age of women’s lib, I showed home-bound mothers how to express their discontent by splashing paint on canvas and ease themselves with the calming effects of yoga.

  • Chapter 4. Toe Hold

    This chapter had me creating transformative group experiences, as a musician and visual/performance artist. In my thirties, and before the age of cell phones and social media, I formed the vision that would pull me into my future: To use distance learning to help people transform their concept of self, by providing exceptional resources and hands-on support they can easily afford.

  • Chapter 5. Get Biz-ey

    I launched my first coaching company at 44, working with highly creative entrepreneurs who felt inspired as free spirits, but tied down by convention. This is how I came to know that the clients I would serve best were to be iNtuitive personality types. Many had suffered, as had I, from the pain that Sensing-majority programming and cultural censure had caused.

  • Chapter 6. Take Ownership

    My fifties had me framing complex ideas in simple, metaphorical terms, to craft tools for experiential self-evolution. Revising and sharing them again and again over twenty years has helped me capture and apply all that I’ve learned about iNtuitive-Thinkers and iNtuitive-Feelers … sometimes coaching them one-on-one, and sometimes facilitating live retreats and trainings.

  • Chapter 7. Turn On

    The turn of the century and the age of smart-phones and social media had me working by phone, with groups of free, self-controlling individuals who wished to slough off limiting self-concepts, fully honor and value themselves, and do so, with a genuine generosity of spirit toward others.

  • Chapter 8. Feel the Love

    The age of COVID is showing me, without a doubt, that my truest wisdom connection is with iNtuitive-Feeling women. In general, I find we tend to be brilliant, deeply caring, and altruistic people. My long-wished-for, perfect family has arrived, here within the warmth of the Bravely Being You virtual village.

meet our wise-woman call guides

Martha Mason

A mature, wise woman of great substance, Martha brings to iNtuitive Conversations a natural warmth and compassion earned over decades of conscious self-realization and client care. Taking the road less traveled, she is an inveterate seeker and soul-soother, whose voice is like a warm hug on our calls. During her years as a licensed counselor, Martha worked with children and families through the expressive arts, including music, free-drawing, and drama. Now, as a free agent in her seventies, she shares her special ability to help a wounded child feel safe, seen, and supported. She finds that child in those who are still very young, and also in adults whose inner joy has gone uncelebrated for a lifetime, as is true for many iNtuitive-Feeling type women.

Gandolfa Stegmann

Gandolfa is a personification of mature wisdom and professional excellence.  A committed life-long learner and serial entrepreneur, she inspires the Bravely Being You community as a model for who we can become when we fully embrace our complex interests, own our multiple talents, and courageously act upon our ‘possibility thinking.’ Having received her BA in Communications at the age of seventy, she went on to earn credentials as a Life Coach in her mid-eighties, and now coaches other mature women to find expansive meaning in life after ‘work.’ INtuitive Conversations callers feel an immediate sense of safety when hearing Gandolfa’s voice, and are always deeply inspired, both by her sage insights and her self-directed approach to life.

Mischa Ripps

Of all our Bravely Being You call guides, Mischa is most familiar with the powerful self-development tools available to women who enter our village through iNtuitive Conversations, and make their way on to village-central, and Sparkle School. Learning many of our tools in her early twenties, she miraculously used them to break into the Las Vegas music scene as a featured vocalist and bassist with a hot country band. And here’s the miracle - she did it in her late forties! Mischa is a maven of creativity as a singer-songwriter, recording artist, and stage personality. However, it is her soulful lyrics and dedication to living a self-defined life that inspire us most. She reminds us iNtuitive-Feeling women to honor our rare gifts and boldly share them with the world.

Wendy Lindahl

Wendy is a personal transformation muse par excellence! Many therapists are multi-disciplined, but very few are seasoned in so many life-giving modalities: yoga, dance/movement, creative arts, stress management, mindfulness meditation, and dream work. She has a coveted position as Wellness and Mindfulness Specialist at the celebrated 5-star Enchantment Resort and Destination Spa located in Sedona, Arizona. She helps guests from all over the world get in touch with forgotten dimensions of self. As an iNtuitive Conversations facilitator, Wendy’s ability to tune into the needs of callers is surpassed, only, by the precise way she hears every word shared, and feeds back germane, yet soul-soothing, reflections.

Maxine "Max" Kamin

Many iNtuitive-Feeling type women struggle to feel embraced by the business sector of the Sensing-majority world. Maxine found there not only a warm welcome but a place to thrive! As a consultant in the training and development field, she honed her facilitation skills working with corporate boards, executives, and management teams. Max is an inspiration for any iNtuitive-Feeling type woman who is transitioning from ‘corporate’ into more ‘NF-friendly’ settings. And what a blessing she is to Bravely Being You! Trained in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, and a mature NF woman in her own right, she has been instrumental in helping us understand how to best serve the special NF visitors to our one-of-a kind virtual village.

Why do we use a phone-only platform instead of a video conference?

We do not use a video platform for our calls because of what our callers have told us:

  • “At first, I wondered why we weren’t using Zoom, but now I completely understand. Video is great when the idea is to replace live events, but for me iNtuitive Conversations are something completely different … like nothing I’ve ever experienced before.”
  • “On my very first call, I felt so comfortable. I wouldn’t have shared so much if strangers were watching me.”
  • “You just feel the undivided attention of awesome wise women without ever having to worry about how you look.”
  • “I’ve learned to listen better to everyone I know.”
