There is a life you are destined to step into…to stand in.

 

You know it. And I know it, too.

 

Somehow, though, it keeps evading you.

 
So…
You take one more program, course, or workshop.
You believe-believe-believe that the perfect client or business opportunity is on the way.
You give yourself a talking to.
You make a few more tweaks to the website, the resume, the manuscript.
You determine (yet again) to drop 15 pounds.
You re-commit to working harder on the relationship.
You order a few more books (or shoes or home-decor items) from Amazon.com.
 

And here’s what makes you craziest:

 
You already know that it’s not about some magic pill or secret formula.
You already know that everything you need is within you.
You already know there is a you within who longs to show up, step forth, and actually feel into and be her!
 
Still…
 

THE GAP BETWEEN WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW AND WHAT YOU ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE STARES BACK AT YOU DEFIANTLY.

What you need and long for are ways to call forth and consistently rely upon the wisdom you already know is yours. Yes?

 
Not someday. Not once you get your s*** together. Not when the stars converge or the planets align (or you finally lose 15 pounds). Right now. In the midst. Every day. This life. Yep. The wild and precious one that’s yours.
 

What you need and long for is the acknowledgment and expression of your already-inherent strength, agency, voice, power, and influence – both within and without.

 
Not someday. Not when you’re stronger. Not when your life calms down. Not when you f-i-n-a-l-l-y figure it out. Right now. In the midst. Everyday. This life. Your life.
 

You know it. And I know it, too:

 

Sovereignty is already yours!

SOVEREIGNTY is a 9-month experience of kindred community, rich-and-deep content, and profound advocacy and support. It collates all my work, writing, wisdom, and deepest heart on your behalf. Practical “practices.” Teaching. Mentoring. And most importantly, relevant and implemented (not just talked about or pondered) learnings that will make 2018 the year you step into the life you already know is yours to live. The one that, by divine right, is your destiny and desire. As it should be.
 

This is sacred stuff.

 
Which is why I’m going to stand alongside you every step of the way. This is NOT an automated program; I’m right here, “live” and (virtually) in-person, teaching you everything I know and cheering you on. I’ll have your back. And I’ll remind you, show you, reveal to you – again and again – the Sovereign She that dwells within YOU. She needs and longs for you to step into full expression and powerful voice. She is ready and waiting to do so. And she will enable you to be the woman you already know you are.
 

Say yes to the SOVEREIGN life that is already yours!

Ronna Detrick looks you in the eye. And she listens. And when she speaks, you can see her pulling down wisdom from St. Theresa to Simone de Beauvoir through the filter of her own lived experience, to give you a gem of grace – or grit. And, she can write – like a poet on a practical mission. Like a feminist with faith.

Danielle LaPorte

Ronna takes my hand and guides my words through a flame. We sit, side-by-side and watch as that flame licks away the old beliefs, the shoulds, the supposed to’s and the false narratives. The words that come through the other side are clean. Pure. Truer than true…and wholly mine. It is truly a sacred experience.

Tanya Geisler

Part-soul priestess, part-tenderhearted feminist, Ronna’s words are a divine benediction to all who hear them. She helped me recognize my resistance to reconciling the beliefs impressed on me throughout childhood. She is someone I trust implicitly and is the perfect intermediary for soul work.

A look at the 9 months ahead…

LISTEN TO THE VOICES: within and without

You work hard to silence your inner critic – the hamster wheels within that grind and spin. But when you really listen, you begin to learn (and honor) your greatest obstacles, your deepest fears, your biggest challenges. Your sovereignty will emerge when you clearly and definitively respond to (vs. push away) all that prevents you from hearing and relying upon YOUR voice.

NAME CORE VALUES AND BELIEFS: that serve and don’t

The voices you’ve been listening to (even though you’ve tried to not) hardly originated in a vacuum. They have been fed and fueled by the values and beliefs you’ve perhaps unconsciously inherited, but that are no less potent: culture, family of origin, religion, any number of things. When you name from whence you’ve come, the “lineage” that is yours – wanted or not, you can then move in a different and regal direction.

NOT ENOUGH VS. TOO MUCH: ending the debate once and for all; avoiding both apologies and excuses

The self-talk is rampant. Usually couched in “I’m not (thin, rich, smart, pretty, educated, blah, blah, blah) enough,” what women fear even more is being too much. That fear, that untruth, stops you – over and over again. Until it doesn’t. You ARE more than enough. You are NOT too much.

ACKNOWLEDGE THE CONSEQUENCES: the risks of telling and living your truth

Let’s be honest: none of this is easy. Decisions made on your own behalf WILL create tension. Your voice – expressed and heard – can ruffle some feathers, create a ruckus, start a movement. A wise sovereign anticipates where the resistance will come from, who will not be happy, and why. But it does not stop her. Know and name the unavoidable ramifications. Anything less decries the wisdom you already hold within.

REMEMBER THAT YOU’RE NOT ALONE: gather the women

Choosing to be a woman who does not compromise her sovereignty can be lonely. But you need not go it alone. Solidarity with like-minded/hearted women always-and-exponentially increases your capacity, wisdom, and ability to move toward change – your own and others’. Oh, the riches and resources that are yours in the women who surround you, those in your matrilineal line, and those you can rely on in your sacred (feminine) lineage. This changes everything.

ALSO IN MAY: The Gather The Women Retreat

DECLARE YOUR TERMS your voice, your story, your life.

It is time to determine AND DECREE what YOUR voice has to say, what YOUR story will be, and all on YOUR terms. You are the sovereign, after all! THIS is where it all comes together, where your power and wisdom and strength show up in undeniable and impossible-to-ignore ways. We’ll lay the groundwork, and then…

STEP FORWARD! It’s time!

You have spent six months building practices that strengthen and support your personal sovereignty; learnings that can be returned to again and again, that will last a lifetime. Your dignity, strength, and voice deserve to be made manifest in your life, your relationships, your business or career, your world. You are ready. It is time. Craft and experience the best and most powerful ways in which you can step boldly into your own life.

STAND FIRM!! You can!

When you step forward you can then, better and more consistently “hold court” and demonstrate just how regal, powerful, and fierce you are. Even more, those characteristics – regal, powerful, and fierce – will be called upon. We need you to express and live out your opinions and beliefs. This is far easier said than done in a world that swirls with so much conflict and contradiction: Facebook, Twitter, mass-media, etc. Learn how to stand firm in your own beliefs and values in ways that are gracious and generous.

RISE UP!! We’re waiting!

You step forward, you stand tall, and finally you rise. This is the culmination of all you’ve been working with – incorporating the last eight months into your very way of being now and always. This is you – at your truest, boldest, most courageous, and most powerful. This is you – stepping, standing, and rising as the regal and royal woman you truly are. This is you – claiming the life that is, by divine right, yours. And this is the you we’re all waiting to see, waiting to witness, waiting to honor, waiting to celebrate. You ARE ready. It IS time.

Nobody in my adult life has made me reconsider my own spirituality so provocatively and, ultimately, so productively; to make my beliefs tangible somehow. Because of Ronna I can feel my own faith beneath me, a hammock, a support, and I’m immensely grateful.

Lindsey Mead Russell

Ronna is the kind of spiritual leader I’ve been waiting for. Her approach is gentle yet full of strength. Her teaching is full of grace but never compromising. She sees deep within souls…

Tara Gentile

Ronna is one of the wisest, wittiest, warmest women I’ve had the privilege to travel the path with. I cannot imagine a more sage, humble and curious guide for doing deep personal work…I am blessed to know her, and will forever be grateful for her company.

Christa Gallapolous

Why do this with me?

 
I understand sovereignty – both its welcome presence and its painful absence. I know what it offers and what it costs. I am not naive: it is difficult to step forward, stand firm, and rise up! I have more stories than I can count in which I have struggled to hold my ground, use my voice, and trust my own wisdom. But I also have increasingly more stories in which just the opposite is true.
 
So, what has enabled the change? Lots of things, of course: 20+ years of professional experience in leadership and human development; nearly 10 years as an entrepreneur – writing, creating, and working with clients; extensive courses of study for both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees; more than all else, my tenacious commitment to transforming women’s stories (including my own) into the glorious and powerful “texts” they are. This is what I bring to you in SOVEREIGNTY; it’s the accumulation and offering of everything I’ve learned, everything I know, everything I have – and all on your behalf.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the stories…

 
I am deeply and passionately committed to transforming the stories of women. Yes, in the here and now, but also the ancient, sacred stories that we’ve almost forgotten if not dismissed – our sacred feminine lineage.
 
Like you, their stories have been told in ways that have too-often stripped them of their worth and value. Like you, they want to be known and appreciated for their true selves. Like you, they have been waiting – to be heard, to be seen, to be honored, to stand in their full stature and yes, sovereignty.

This is (at least part of) what I do: reimagine, retell, and redeem women’s stories – for them, yes; but also for me, for my daughters and theirs, for you. When any woman’s story is told in a validating and empowering way, our story changes – as does the collective story of women around the world – past, present, and future. This is no small thing. And in these days and times, this is deeply, critically needed.

 
I am hardly alone in this effort. In the summer of 2016 I spent a week in Loveland, Colorado being trained by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, author of Women Who Run With the Wolves and storyteller extraordinaire. I went, in large part, to be right-up-close to her, to witness her, to learn from one of the very best. She tells stories in ways that change lives. Stories of women, relatively unknown-if-not-unheard, who, when introduced and understood offer us previously undiscovered insight into our own lives. I came away from that event with two things: 1) certification to facilitate groups of women in archetypal storytelling; and 2) compelled yet again by the relatively unknown-if-not-unheard stories I tell and love – stories that change our lives.
 
So…in the 9 months to come, as we step into teaching, practices, and powerful ways of being that enable you to live fully in your inherent sovereignty, I will be telling you stories. Powerful, life-changing stories. Stories of women who are much like you and who have SO MUCH they want you to know – about them, to be sure; more about your very self at an archetypal level and every level. You will not be disappointed. Indeed, you will come to see them as closest guides, dearest friends, strongest allies. Because they are.
 
One last thing: if you read the pricing details above you saw that you will receive one of these stories – just for you, via a SacredReading. I am already over-the-moon thrilled about the unique and particular wisdom that I KNOW she will offer you – all in support of your beautiful sovereign self.

What about the retreat?

 
How great will this be?!? A weekend together in May, 2018. The very month in which we focus on remembering that we are not alone. (Because we aren’t!)
 
Two nights and three days in the Puget Sound area (think Seattle or Bainbridge Island or Whidbey Island or Vashon Island – there are a LOT of islands here!!!). A beautiful location. Amazing food. Fabulous conversation. Stories. Surprises. And yes, sovereignty in spades!

REFUND POLICY

Your spot in SOVEREIGNTY is saved once you have completed the application and made your $150 deposit. Email me (or make a note on your application form) if you have any questions or concerns so that everything is settled before we begin in January. Once we dive in, all payments, including your deposit, are non-refundable. Further, you agree, upon commencement of monthly payments, that these will continue for the 9-months of the program (or 12 months, if working on a budgeted plan – see FAQs for details).

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if this is right for me?

First and foremost, I would encourage you to trust your gut, your intuition, your heart, that know-that-you-know-that-you-know voice within. It will not lead you astray. I would also encourage you to trust that if you’ve read this far and with this much attention, you’re resonating – and ready.
 
Second, I would encourage you to consider what it means to step into a 9-month experience that is fully about you: not your business, not your earning potential, not your confidence or self-esteem. And…about all of these things and then some. My intention and hope is that you are wanting something that is applicable no matter what, that speaks to core elements and issues of all women, that ushers you into a way of being that is deeper, wiser, and stronger in your everyday life. Sovereign, to be sure.
 
Third, if helpful, you should know that my background, training, and expertise is a hybrid of leadership development, spiritual direction, therapy, and mentoring/coaching. The combining of these – along with many years of life experience – give me the capacity to walk alongside you on multiple levels – paying attention to and honoring the whole of you – past, present, and future.

What does "sovereignty" mean, anyway?

The dictionary defines sovereign as both noun and adjective. A monarch, a queen, a person with power and authority. One who is supreme, preeminent, and indisputable in character and excellence.

For me it means standing tall, fully aware of and confident in who I am, what I offer, what I desire, and what I have to say – in every situation.

Believe me, I’ve hardly got this nailed, but I do have an increasing number of experiences in which there was no question in my mind that my sovereign self is who showed up – In full power and authority, indisputable, even regal (which is not to say it was easy or without consequence and risk). Those experiences, along with years and years of work (for myself and on behalf of others) has compelled me to understand this way of being not as anomaly, but as a woman’s truest identity – the woman she longs to be, the woman she already is…who is just waiting to be seen, heard, and experienced.

Is this mostly automated, or will I actually be interacting with you?

SOVEREIGNTY is not automated at all! Of course, I will be sending you content virtually (via email and through our Mighty Network Group), but every bit of that – as well as all of the content presented, discussed, and ultimately practiced and “lived,” will come directly from me, in live time, through our monthly group calls and through my engagement in the online group.

This is, in truth, why I am offering SOVEREIGNTY in the first place – motivated and compelled by my desire to create and nurture a community of women, to stand in our strength together!

I am not wild about Facebook groups. How will this be different?

This will be different from Facebook groups because we are NOT using Facebook! Though I remain profoundly grateful for the relationships I’ve created and sustained via social media. I also feel the overwhelm, the inability to keep up, and sometimes just a strong urge to run away and never look back!

The Mighty Networks platform that we will be using for SOVEREIGNTY, allows all of us to gather with intention in a safe and user-friendly space. Content will be posted there, my thoughts and teaching throughout (above/beyond the calls and worksheets, etc.), but more than all else, conversation that is just ours, focused, and undistracted by the pull of our feed, our notifications, and so much more. It’s sacred space.

And of course, you get to decide how much, how often, when and where you participate. I expect and intend that you will experience your presence and voice to be profoundly valued. I also expect and intend that the presence and voices of the other women who join you will bless and strengthen you in ways you cannot yet begin to imagine.

What if I can't make all the calls?

Completely understandable! Time zones. Conflicts. Life. All of these show up. Each call will be recorded and then made available so that you can have access to all that was discussed. These recordings are yours to keep and listen back to at any time.

Is the retreat mandatory?

Absolutely not!

But I am so hopeful that you will be able to (and want to) come!

I get that it’s hard, as we are just beginning, to know whether or not you feel a connection with the other women in the group – even with me. That’s why we’re waiting until May to have this experience together (and during the month in which we’re talking about just how important it is that we “gather the women” around us in order to stand in our sovereignty and strength.

I’ve coordinated numerous women’s retreats in the past 8-10 years and each one of them has been a beautiful, even miraculous blending of personality, voice, story, and heart. They are some of my fondest memories; experiences for which I am most grateful. I trust that this one will be no different.

Why is an application required?

There are three things that I would want in each woman who joins: 1) A desire for community with other like-minded/hearted women. 2) The ability and willingness to show up and participate honestly (in both struggles and strengths). 3) An awareness of how the lack of sovereignty is costing her and a readiness to stand tall in her right-now life, not someday.

The application form (which is only 4 or 5 questions, by the way) gives you the chance to clarify your intentions – which I then have the privilege of witnessing. It gives me helpful insight about courses you might have taken and how they did or did not impact you. And more than all else, it enables me to make sure that I can best serve you.

If you’re ready, here’s the link to the application form itself.

How much time will SOVEREIGNTY require each week?

You can potentially spend a lot of time with the concepts we’ll be exploring and the exercises, worksheets, and journaling prompts I’ll be providing throughout. But that will only be because you want to!

Realistically, an hour each week will be more than sufficient to work with the content and practices. Week’s with a call will, of course, increase by that same amount. And then time spent in the Mighty Networks group is at your discretion and availability.

I still-and-always use what I will be teaching and offering you. It’s now second-nature to some degree, part of the warp and woof of my thoughts and way of being. Still, on quiet Saturday or Sunday mornings I will sit down and journal my way through the very specific steps – wanting to gain more clarity, more strength, more sovereignty. Other times, I will have long, meandering conversation with a friend about what I’m working with, struggling with, hoping for. I could put a time on these, but they are beyond such – and my hope for you, as well.

Can I upgrade and change to the "Enhanced" Level part-way through if I decide I want the 1:1 calls with you?

Definitely!

I am more than happy to adjust your monthly invoicing from the $200 to $395 level which will then include 1:1 monthly calls with me. (If this adjustment is made before February 15, all additional benefits from the Enhanced Level will be included. If February 16, or later, the monthly billing will be $350 for the remainder of the program, but will not include the SacredReading call or Virtual Retreat.)

What if I want to have more than one call per month with you?

Time and scheduling constraints allowed, absolutely!

My hourly rate is $162.50. I am offering SOVEREIGNTY participants a discounted rate of $150/hour. I am more than happy to invoice you directly for any booked sessions.

Do you offer scholarships or reduced pricing?

Given that this is the first year in which I am making SOVEREIGNTY available, I do not have a scholarship fund – though I am so hopeful that such will be true in the future.

There are some ways to save some money and/or lower your monthly payments:

  • Pay in full by December 31, 2017 and save one month’s fees (almost 15%). $200/month program = $1600 (Save $200). $395/month program = $3160 (Save $395).
  • Spread payments over 12 months instead of 9. $200/month reduces to $165. $395/month reduces to $315.

If you would like to utilize either of these options, please email me (ronna@ronnadetrick.com) so that I can adjust your invoicing accordingly.

Are refunds available if I change my mind?

Once we begin in January, all payments, including your deposit, are non-refundable. Further, you agree, upon commencement of monthly payments, that these will continue for the 9-months of the program (or 12 months, if working on a budgeted plan – see FAQs for details).

This may feel like a pretty big decision. It is! And…I want you to be “all in” when you start – committed, ready, and as certain as you can be. I’m biased, of course, but from my perspective, it’s more than a safe bet. These 9 months are going to be amazing. And your presence will make them even more so!

When will SOVEREIGNTY be offered again?

A year from now: January, 2019.

I'm still not sure if this is right for me.

I’m happy to schedule a 30-minute clarifying call. Just let me know: ronna@ronnadetrick.com. Have some specific questions or concerns in mind and I’ll do my VERY best to help you with this decision – either way.

And finally…

 
If you were to click on my Home Page you would see these words:
 

This is what I want for you:

To experience yourself as whole, wise, and awe-inspiring.
Because you are.

To trust the knowing voice within that says, “You already know…”
Because you do.

To experience your story as one worth telling.
Because it is.

To walk through your days profoundly aware that you are not alone.
Because you are not, ever.

This I promise.

 
Every bit of this reflects the SOVEREIGNTY that already and always dwells within you. (This I promise.) It would be my deepest privilege and joy to walk alongside you in the year to come. I already know what I will witness and experience when we get to its end: YOU – glorious, awake, alive, and aware of every bit of your power, grace, wisdom, dignity, and strength.
 

If you have questions, by all means, email me: ronna@ronnadetrick.com
