  • In my busy schedule, I forced myself to create time to do this course, and I am exceptionally glad I did. Every week I had something I could learn and take away – all of which made a big difference in my life. I personally approach things at work and home differently now and can already see the positive impact it has had, firstly for myself, and also my family, my friends and colleagues. Many thanks to Jo, who was a fantastic guide through this learning journey. I highly recommend this course to all women!

Your Teachers

Jo Wagstaff

I’m the mum of a teenage boy and spent 20 years in corporate leadership roles before embracing my own Compassionate Self-Awareness journey. I re-trained, studied psychotherapy and coaching and became a Search Inside Yourself Accredited Teacher. I am passionate about empowering all women to thrive. To find their voices, be themselves, care for themselves and create deeply authentic and fulfilling lives.

Heather Albrecht

I’m a mindfulness-based psychotherapist and mindfulness teacher with a decades-long career in the corporate world that taught me much about the challenges of authentically being myself. I’m passionate about sharing the path of Compassionate Self-Awareness which has been, and continues to be, the most transformative path for living a deeply authentic and meaningful life.

  • I recently completed the Authentic Woman course online. I do love a good online course and have done a few over the years. But Authentic Woman is in a class of it’s own. It is comprehensively developed and beautifully presented, it was an absolute pleasure to log on ever week. I felt like Jo and Heather were my own personal coaches supporting and encouraging me every step of the way. The supporting material like the eBooks and the homework are thoughtfully combined with the online learning materials. It was beyond my expectations in every way. This course delivers a deeply transformative experience that helps you create a more meaningful life if you truly commit to the process. Thank you Jo and Heather.”
