You’ve acknowledged that there is pain in your life, be it physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. You have stopped looking for ways to avoid it, disregard it, and run from it. You are now ready to learn how to grow from it and feel better. What was the catalyst? We’ll uncover the source of your wounds and the places inside where you hide the shadow, so you can finally heal through the pain and disorder.
You are ready to venture out and navigate your way forward on an open-ended trail of personal growth. There are so many possibilities! And it is this excitement for what may come that will override any discomfort that might arise in you along the way. We fondly call this starting point “the beginner’s mind”. You can bring your beginner’s mind to any new experience. With it, opportunities are infinite. We’ll cultivate this mindset to create space for sustainable, joyful growth.
The smallest step in the direction of change is a positive step. Wanting things to be different is hopeful but not enough. Setting out to change the environment of your life is vitally important to making a shift that sticks. So, that’s where we’ll direct our attention next – to little ways you can shape your environment, both inner and outer, to foster your success.
Sometimes we are good at guiding ourselves toward happiness and sometimes we falter. Sometimes, we outright sabotage our own efforts. In order for us to learn from anyone else, we have to learn to be guided by our own compass first. We’ll work to challenge the voices that undercut our truth in order to get in touch with our authentic self and the intuitive wisdom it has about who we are and how we should live.
Healing doesn’t unfold along a predictable timetable of progress. This is an adventure that you will be on for the rest of your life. To get where you want to be, you must let go of the desire to get to some future state in order to be happy. You must truly see the transformative process as a grand adventure. Once you have that mindset, you can let go of the pressure to “succeed” according to some predefined template and stay open to what appears going forward in your life.
The forgiveness journey transforms you. When we hold on to anger, it resonates within and without our being, polluting our reality. For some, it may be a very subtle undertone of feeling and for others far more apparent. Any amount of unresolved hurt eventually will affect you and those around you. We’ll work to build a deep awareness that to live with forgiveness is to live in truth: the truth that we’ve all been hurt and all hurt others, and that the only way to break the cycle and empower a better reality is through forgiveness.
What if you had a choice in each and every moment? What if you could learn a new way of being that would help you grow out of old triggers, hurts, and reactions just by staying open instead of closing down from the pain? The truth is, you have that freedom. To act upon it, you need to take responsibility. Know that you have the choice and it is yours alone. Then, you need to build mindful awareness of the choices available to you in each moment. And an understanding of which choices are in accord with your authentic self and the strength to choose those options over destructive, patterned responses. We’ll build up the awareness, intuition, and resolve to meet these moments with intention and purpose.
“Sarah’s wisdom extends far beyond her academic and professional knowledge of health and wellness, and healing from mental and physical distress and imbalances. Her depth of understanding the fascinating and complex interconnectedness of mind, body and spirit is superior.” — Rosemary T
To forge new ways of being, we must prioritize our personal needs (self-care) first and foremost. Each moment we wait to prioritize our own well-being, we put off the benefit to both ourselves and others of us being our fullest, most empowered selves. Making this commitment is a powerful step toward a more peaceful, powerful self and the brighter light she can bring to the world. Plus, for the next group (starting in 2023 but with some special events and offerings happening in the last few months of this year for this next cohort only), I’m offering the lowest price I will ever offer for the program again. Next year, this program will cost $15,000. Consider the current price a one-time-only scholarship of $5,000.When panic is triggered, adrenaline rushes into our body, alerts our mind, and has us reacting to an event, consciously or subconsciously, in one way or another. Sometimes these events are worthy of immediate reaction, but oftentimes they are not. It only takes a millisecond of an anxiety response to throw the world into a tailspin. So often, we perpetuate chaos with the false belief that we must react in the moment. We’ll cultivate a deep-held belief that it’s okay, and often much better, to pause and observe. And we’ll build up our comfort with waiting, uncertainty, and simply taking in the world to make space for clarity to come and the wise action to become apparent.
It is vital to take a step back from time to time and assess how the changes you’ve made feel in your life. We’ve learned how valuable change is to healing. Without it there is no way of moving ahead on a healing path. But equally as important is the understanding of how much energy is required to sustain these changes. Not every day will be easy! You will need to be gentle with yourself, and utilizing the observer’s eye to gauge how you are doing will help you take great care of yourself as you move ahead. The success of your hard work is dependent on this knowledge.we’ll chart a path forward and work to instill the tools to make your practice resilient, adaptable, and durable.
I’m Sarah Brassard, a holistic personal and spiritual coach and author.
I inspire women to change old habits, create a new infrastructure for healing and growth, and learn to reign over the inconsistent and cruel messaging that so often pours forth from the inner voices of those in need of healing. These break-throughs allow for an unwavering, gratifying, and sustainable life-long practice.
My programs bring consistency, focus, and dedication that support a lifetime of inner empowerment. Once the foundation is in place, your life will take a different course, no longer stuck in the fog of trauma and a cycle of endless suffering.
While this is the lowest price I will ever offer for this program, optionally available at the longest-term and lowest monthly payment plan, it’s still a substantial investment. This 9-month group coaching program (with social community, video resource library, and lifetime access including "AHI Alums" program) will demand much from you, me, and your peers in the process. The price of the program today is $10,765 when paid in 12 payments. If you choose to pay in full, you save $766. On the fence about whether the investment will pay off? You’ll find answers to some more questions you might have below, in the remaining FAQs. There are also details related to curriculum, features, as well as past participants testimonials here. Also note that you can secure your program with a fully refundable deposit. You'll then have a chance to meet with Sarah to discuss the program and make your final decision.
We plan to start the next program on February 6, 2023 at 1 p.m. Eastern and will run for 9 months. The main group sessions will be at 1 p.m. Eastern on the first Monday and third Wednesday of each month. While you and the group will have the best experience if you are able to join live sessions, the sessions will be recorded and added to the member site should you need to miss one.
There is a way out. Self Sabotage is your spirit’s cry for help. When we experience this outcome over and over again we suffer deeply. This level of suffering disempowers us. This is one of the strongest messages we get from our spirit to change old agonizing behaviors. Are you ready to heed the call? I only accept to the program those who I’m confident will benefit from this transformative work. There’s no shame in not being ready right now. None of us were ready—until we were. If you are not ready, the last thing you need is a process that makes you feel unsuccessful. Still not sure it will work? You don’t have to be sure. If you’re a “maybe” or an “I don’t know”—let’s find out together!
How much is your health, your happiness, and your wellbeing worth? This is an investment in your life. Are you ready to prioritize your personal learning? To liberate your life, emotionally, physically, and spiritually? If so, you are in the right place, and nothing will hold you back from that inner quest—nothing!
We punish ourselves for our inability to change behaviors that have devastating effects on our life. But in truth, what keeps us from carrying through is unconscious learned behaviors that we adopted between the ages of 0-7 years old. When we reveal these resistances and blocks, healing begins, change happens, and we experience a freedom and success we never imagined possible.
Self Sacrifice is a dangerous doctrine and as we practice this way of being it gets more persuasive and frightening, and ultimately diminishes our personal truth and humanity. We disappear, adopting others’ convictions, allowing them to override what is innately real for us. We abandon ourselves and experience the greatest loss possible, our own humanity.
For years I’ve offered 1-1 consulting sessions. I love going deep into someone’s life and helping them reveal habits that have held them from their greatest opportunities.
However, there is only so much ground you can cover in a single session. It can be overwhelming to change direction and implement significant changes without additional feedback and support. This confidential study group of like-minded peers allows for deep reflection and insight into topics that might otherwise not present themselves. The experiences of others allow us to evaluate situations with new perspectives and empathy.
That’s why I’ve created this collective experience. I KNOW the only way I’ve seen progress in my own life is through accountability and dedication. You get out what you put in – and the greatest successes I’ve seen with myself and with my clients come with consistency.
I love nothing more than to help someone excavate their uniqueness, their originality, the gift only they can offer the world – no one else can. And to make that distinctive characteristic shine even more- to lay the foundation needed to refine those qualities and bring them to the world.
Plus, you WILL get two 75-minute 1-on-1 coaching sessions as part of the process. You get the best aspects of coaching, an intensive course, and a group mastermind program rolled into one!
I do offer private coaching to just a few clients per year, with an annual commitment, and usually only to those who have completed this program. Or, in very select cases, to those who need personalized, trauma-informed coaching.

As your consciousness opens up, and it will, difficult memories and blocked experiences start to bubble up. This experience can stop people from moving ahead. It takes an experienced teacher to see this is happening and offer modifications or additional practices to help nurture people to stay on this path of learning. I have this experience and my goal is to keep you going. My teachings and programs are structured to guide you through the process. And you’ll have a supportive group of peers who are right there with you on this journey.
