Book Club: Overwhelmed & Over It: The Five-Month Program

Online

Wed, Mar 17 5:00 PM - Wed, Jun 16 6:30 PM PDT

Are you "Overwhelmed & Over It?" Each month, we will work through a book chapter with author Christine Arylo to stay centered, sustained and focused on what matters within an uncertain world!


Wed, Mar 17 5:00 PM - Wed, Jun 16 6:30 PM PDT


What if...

  • ...Instead of striving to do it all, you could tap into your intuition to discern what to focus on – in your day-to-day and overall goals? 
  • ...You had the clarity to make wiser choices to elevate how you design your life, work, organization and relationships? 
  • ...You had new tools to shift the overwhelm when it arises so you really could create “sustainable success” - not just more work – so you can achieve what matters, care for those you love and lead, receive what you need, and have space to breathe?

Ellevate Seattle is thrilled to be partnering with Christine Arylo on an enlightening and powerful experience for women looking for elevated insight and practical tools they can use to stay centered and sustained while achieving their goals, managing full lives, and preventing burnout. Our 5-month program is based on Christine's newest book Overwhelmed and Over It! Embrace Your Power to Stay Centered and Sustained in a Chaotic World

We are offering a workshop style structure around this book to allow for the meaningful connection, practical support, and intentional space we need to build new habits and think differently, so we can make real change in 2021 and beyond. 

Each workshop will be held the 3rd Wednesday of the month from Feb through June. See the Agenda section for more details. If you can't sign up for the full program series, you may sign up for individual workshops. 

Choose your level of participation by attending one, some, or optimally all of the events in the series. The series is discounted 10% from the individual workshop prices. 

If you are an entrepreneur, this workshop will help you to identify how best to balance the many hats you wear of strategist, manager, marketer, producer, etc. to thrive in your business. If you are a career-changer, this can help you sort through what you must focus on to make the shift you desire.

What You’ll Need to Be Ready to Participate:

  • hard copy of the book (self-purchase)
  • The companion journal (self-purchase)
  • An open mind and heart, with the courage to actively co-create a community with other women daring to do it differently. These gatherings will surface an experience where you’re able to reset and exhale, creating a rhythm you’ll actually enjoy.
  • Time to read the relevant sections of the book in advance of each gathering, while bringing self-reflective inquiries and practices into your day/evening/weekly rhythm. 


  • This is a part of Ellevate's Entrepreneurs and Career Changers Programs.

Full Agenda

The program experience will progress based on the structure of the book - the 5 Points of Liberation. Each month, we will:

  • uncover the roots of the unconscious “imprints” driving us, 
  • learn a different way based on ‘wisdom-led leadership,’ and 
  • commit to this ‘Daring Act of Liberation’ that we will practice throughout the month. 

Our goal is to actively seek a higher level of self-awareness and make significant shifts in how we design life, work, and relationships through self-empowered action.
