News & Updates
TruFusion is the local fitness studio that Rachelle and I joined a little over three weeks ago. We love the studio but stopped going to classes a week ago due to the virus situation, and they decided to shutter their locations not long after that. Today I got an email from them sharing that they’re already starting online classes on Wednesday. Now that’s fast!
They provided members like me with a login and password to their website, and so far it lists 4 online classes starting tomorrow afternoon: 2 flow yoga classes and 2 pilates classes.
The local studio was running up to 240 classes a week (65+ different types of classes in 5 different rooms). So they might be able to add more online classes as well. I hope they do.
Of course not all classes can be done from home since they require equipment, but a lot of their workouts could be adapted for online instruction. I especially hope they add a yin yoga class since that was among my favorites.
I’m impressed to say the least. I’m sharing this because I think it’s a beautiful example of a positive adaptation under trying circumstances.
Here’s a meditation and instructions from meditation expert and author Dawson Church to significantly boost your immune system and reduce cortisol levels. Do this daily for a week to double your immune response.
Meditation starts at about 7:35.
I just did my first ever Facebook Live video within the past hour, speaking about character sculpting versus traditional goal setting.
Here’s a recording of the video if you’d like to watch it:
Enjoy the video!
The theme of Hans’ podcast is seduction, and in this episode we talk about what seduces us, such as the recent 365-Day Challenge that seduced me into committing to it… and how Hans was seduced into his own 100-day challenge.
Our conversation is lively and enthusiastic and has lots of juicy insights about courage, alignment, character sculpting, and personal growth, so I think you’ll enjoy it.
Here are some updates on the new Stature character sculpting course:
New Stature Invitation Video Published
The Stature invitation video is now available, and I invite you to watch it.
The video covers a lot in just 35 minutes:
- What character sculpting is and why it matters
- The purpose of the Stature course
- Who the course is for (and who it isn’t for)
- Format of the deep dive
- About the deep dive exercises
- The vibe and style of the course
- 5 core transformations people requested for this deep dive
- Tips on doing character sculpting on your own (what to focus on)
- The honor code for the course
- What happens after you join?
- The co-creative phase for those who join soon
- A simple tip for making a good decision about whether to join
While the purpose is to inform and invite people to join Stature, I think it also works well as a personal development video since I share a lot of insights about character sculpting.
The new Stature character sculpting course now has the first 7 lessons published in the portal. The first 4 lessons already have full transcripts available too.
We’re co-creating this course with those who are enrolling now.
So far 134 people have signed up for Stature. I’m sure a lot more will join soon. Join us!
I’ve been receiving some delightful feedback on our new Stature character building deep dive. Some people are already finding it transformational in just the first few lessons.
So far 109 people have already signed up for it, with more still joining each day, so that’s great to see. 🙂
The current sign-up count is displayed at the top of the Stature page, so you can see how may more people have joined at any point during the launch week.
Today I added a new lesson to the course called “Summon Your Power.”
Good news – The new Stature character sculpting deep dive course is now open for enrollment.
You’ll also find it listed on the Courses page and the Courses menu on this website.
I plan to add an invitation video to the website tomorrow, so if you like those video invites from past courses, you may want to wait about 24 hours for that to be added. I like video for conveying the vibe of a course, while text is good for sharing the full details.
This is a weighty course, and it will take a genuine commitment to do the actual character sculpting work, so I prefer if people think about this one a little before deciding if they want to commit to it.
Remember that this course is being co-created as we go, so it’s launching with the first 4 lessons now, and I’ll continue creating and publishing more lessons each week as we build it out in January and February, with some of the bonus material being added in March. This is similar to how we launched and developed the Submersion course.
I’ll continue sharing updates about Stature throughout the launch week.
Today we created a new Facebook group for the upcoming Stature course launch, which begins on January 1st. Everyone who’s interested in sculpting and improving their characters for the New Year is welcome to join now!
Just visit the group, request to join, and we’ll approve you ASAP.
You’re welcome to invite friends, colleagues, and anyone else to join as well – as long as they have a keen interest in personal growth.
The intention is to make this launch more social and fun by providing a place where my blog readers, previous course participants, and other growth-oriented people can connect. Rachelle and I will both be active in the group as well.
Let’s make it a big party!
Just note that this group is temporary, so it will be closed and archived after the launch is complete.
