Grace Through Uncertainty: A 30-Day Course to Heal Worry at the Root and Become More Comfortable with Change

Do you struggle with health anxiety, money/career anxiety, or intrusive thoughts?


Do you worry about your loved ones dying and worry about your own death


Do you obsessively worry about your kids’ safety?


Do you struggle with change, loss, and uncertainty?

Most people struggle with change and uncertainty, but some are more attuned to these fluctuations than others. Uncertainty is part of being human, yet one of the scariest places to be is in formlessness, in groundlessness, in nameless fear or nameless grief or nameless dread. As human beings, we aren’t very skilled at sitting with the groundlessness, which is why the mind wants to attach on to something tangible, something that it thinks it can control.

At the core of intrusive thoughts is the need for certainty. At the core of health anxiety is the need for safety. At the core of money anxiety is the need for security. Our culture tells us that we can find safety and security by choosing the right partner and making the right work choices or living in the right house. Our ego tells us that we can find certainty by obsessing on a specific question in search of an answer. None of these pathways lead to true certainty, and none of them quell the anxious mind

Ultimately, we must be willing to let go of these misguided ways that we try to control. Easier said than done, I know.


How do you let go?

How do you live with uncertainty?

How do you surrender to the ocean of formlessness when our deepest fears are around the unknown?


These are questions that I’m asked every day in my work. These are questions that I’ve grappled with in my own life. These are questions I hear in some form from my own sons. These are archetypal questions, and they deserve an answer. Which is why I created this course.


Just like we wouldn’t sail out to sea without a compass and anchor, so we can’t swim in a sea of uncertainty without a map.


This course is a map. The tools I teach are the anchors. Humans throughout history have relied on maps and anchors to help us find ground in groundlessness and footholds in uncertainty. But our culture fails to teach them. Health anxiety, money and career anxiety, obsessive worrying about your kids, the fear of loss and death – these are arrows pointing us in the direction of these anchors, the soul’s way of guiding us to solid ground.

When You Sign Up For The Program, You Will Receive:

 – One email from me every day which will contain an article about meeting the fear of loss at the root and a tangible action that you can take toward orienting away from fear and toward well-being.

 – At least one video and several MP3s each week that will offer additional insight and information on that week’s topic and essential visualizations and meditations that will help you connect to your personal anchors and footholds.

 – Access to a private forum specifically for this program. My private forums are exceptionally supportive communities where people feel safe enough to be vulnerable and do very deep work and, while participation is not essential, it can be a transformational part of the course. (With the live version) For many people, this is the first time they’ve come into contact with other highly sensitive, empathic people who struggle with intrusive thoughts, and the fear of loss, change, and death. True friendships are often formed through my courses, and shame is quickly reduced.

 – Group coaching calls where you will have the chance to ask your questions and bring your concerns directly to me. All calls are recorded and your questions will be answered regardless of whether or not you can attend the calls. (With the live version.)

 – Lifetime access to all of the material

"Sheryl's course, Grace Through Uncertainty, was and is a Godsend."

Sheryl’s course, Grace Through Uncertainty, was and is a Godsend. I am a sensitive person and I’ve had anxiety of various degrees and about different things throughout my 20s. When I found this course, I felt buried by my workload, had been soul-searching for a while to find a spiritual practice that felt true to me, and my anxiety was manifesting as health anxiety. More specifically, I was nervous at almost every meal that I was allergic to something in my food and that my throat would close. Not fun! I was on the fence about taking the class because I was not sure that I could commit to making the time every day, which to me was a flag that I truly NEEDED to make the time for this course to put my health first.

As with all of Sheryl’s content, I was immediately soothed, reassured, and no longer felt alone and or shameful about my anxiety. I actually started waking up with more pep and stopped pressing “snooze” on my alarm during that first week because of how excited I felt about the course content. Of course, I still have work to do to and my anxiety is not magically gone, but I am starting to feel that inner knowing of “I’m going be okay”. I’m getting better at seeing my anxiety as a messenger that’s telling me to turn inward instead of seeking outward reassurance.

What I love about this course is that in addition to the wonderful readings and audio/video tracks, Sheryl gives actual practices and exercises to help both in the moment and to practice on a regular/long term basis to change your relationship to anxiety. I have been dedicated to my morning and evening practices since starting this course and have felt such comfort in connecting to something bigger than myself on a daily basis, instead of just turning to deep breathing or meditation in the actual moment of anxiety. Another perk: meeting a community of other sensitive people through the forum.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Sheryl!

"As all of Sheryl’s courses, this one gives you not only deep wisdom and helpful information, but also tools to water these seeds on a daily basis and find your own ways to connect to yourself and something bigger."
“When I read the course description I thought to myself, ‘Wow, this has been me all of life’. I have always felt that I lacked some sense of basic trust although I have also experienced so many moments of deep connection with God, art, myself and others.

“To understand and learn more about spirituality and how it is a part of our lives already and how to strengthen this trust through practice and action is one of the contents of this course. As all of Sheryl’s courses, this one gives you not only deep wisdom and helpful information, but also tools to water these seeds on a daily basis and find your own ways to connect to yourself and something bigger.

“It is a true gift and relief for me to be able to connect deeper with the spiritual realm and to understand that this is universal and not defined or limited by a certain religion. 

“While there is room for all questions and feelings that arise, also difficult ones and resistance, Sheryl guides you with soothing compassion and wisdom. I am often surprised how she can almost read her clients’ minds and answer questions before they’re even asked. It is also very helpful to be able to connect with others and learn from each other.

“To realize that anxiety is a gift and an invitation to grow and find the wisdom, love and beauty that lies inside you is just one of the lessons that I have learned from this holistic approach. Now it is time to let the information sink in and slowly become part of everyday life, it is good to have all the material available to come back to. Thank you for being a guide and an inspiration, Sheryl!”

– Anja, Germany

“I find myself more equipped to recognize and process intrusive thoughts and the feelings of loneliness, boredom, and grief."

“I find it no coincidence that today I picked my first tomatoes of the season as it is the last day of the course. At the start of summer, when I first got my tomato plants, I said a little prayer that they and I could grow this summer. I prayed that by the time I picked their fruit I would have found more peace in myself. And it happened. Here I am feeling a great peace within myself as I snack on tomatoes :).

“The overarching thing that the course has brought me is peace, but there are so many different integral parts that have shaped the final result. Peace has come through learning about daily and hourly gratitude prayers and morning and nightly rituals. They have changed me. I look forward to exploring monthly, seasonal, and yearly rituals as I know all of these will bring me joy and increased peace.  

“Peace has also come through listening to the recorded group calls and feeling the walls of shame fall by participating in the online forum. The daily emails were the most beneficial to me, though.  I enjoyed receiving a new thought or idea each day that I could let percolate until the next day.  

“I feel that to say “thank you” is not really enough.  Those two words don’t begin to encompass how grateful I am for this course and for your book, The Wisdom of Anxiety.  So maybe these words can help express my gratitude:

“I now feel grounded to the love and joys in the world, to the small things like tomatoes, sunsets, the moon, and light. I find this joy by slowing down and finding beauty in all of the things that this beautiful Earth provides to us. I feel more connected to the Earth, but even more than that, I feel more connected to God. I had no clue how much my faith would grow through this course.  

“I find myself more equipped to recognize and process intrusive thoughts and the feelings of loneliness, boredom, and grief. I’m better able to befriend and allow myself to breathe into these feelings. I’m learning how to befriend my anxiety and realize that it is trying to tell me something more than just doom and worry. I’ve seen peace and joy grow in myself, but this has also made its way into my relationship with my husband.  He has made multiple comments about the shift that has happened in me.  All of the things I am learning has benefitted my marriage greatly and for that I cannot express how truly and deeply grateful I am.  

“Thank you for all of the work that you do and for all the knowledge that you have shared with me.”

"I am so grateful for this and all of Sheryl’s courses."

Grace Through Uncertainty taught me so much about the power of prayer. When I redefined prayer from ‘a chore to do the right way’ to ‘a lifting of the heart in gratitude, joy, or longing’, my whole world shifted toward the clarity and openness I’d been seeking for so many years. A great lesson I’ve been able to incorporate is although prayer does not change outcomes, it allows me to lift the burden of worry. For me, prayer is no longer a once-in-a-while activity. It is a state of mind that I access constantly throughout my day. It mentally lifts me out of my struggles with uncertainty, fear, longing, boredom, frustration, lack of self-worth, and more. Even I am surprised to find a smile on my face where I would have previously expected a grimace. I am so grateful for this and all of Sheryl’s courses.

"The warmth and happiness that I feel in my heart when I think of you and your work is unmatchable. So thank you from the bottom of my heart"

All of your courses always come at a just the right time, but this one was perfect for me. I recently lost my mother to suicide and thanks to you and (all my hard work that has come form your courses through the years) I feel strong about navigating my way through this harsh reality. The way that you make connecting to god so open and with so many varying ways is the most refreshing feeling. I have been trying to connect to a church but sometimes feel discouraged if I don’t align with every last aspect of it, and you just take away the pressure of feeling as if i have to be all or nothing. It’s comforting to be able to just connect with the areas that speak to me and not to shame or judge the areas that do not.

I have had this fear in my recent grief that I am not grieving enough or feeling enough and this course helped me realize again (as do all of your other courses) there is no perfect way and to really listen to myself and shut out all the outer “shoulds”. This path is and has been only my path so how could anyone else suggest how I am feeling. It has also helped me slow down and feel when I need to and write about it, cry about it, talk about it and sit with it. The warmth and happiness that I feel in my heart when I think of you and your work is unmatchable. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"Sheryl's courses have always been incredibly helpful for me navigating through life's transitions and challenges."

The Grace Through Uncertainty course gave me skills and helped me tap into resources I already have for dealing with my current transition into new motherhood and dealing with the anxiety of living in this uncertain world.

"A few months after the course ended, I was having a relaxing day at home when I discover something foreign in my breast. The fear was so strong, so terrifying, it was like a surge of hot lava rushed from my head to my toes. “Cancer” I thought."

A few months after the course ended, I was having a relaxing day at home when I discover something foreign in my breast. The fear was so strong, so terrifying, it was like a surge of hot lava rushed from my head to my toes. “Cancer” I thought. I called my fiancé into the room to examine me. “I don’t think that’s anything to worry about, that is so small! But, if you are really concerned go have it checked.” At this point I was in an inconsolable panic. If it’s nothing then why do I have to go get it checked?! (I have developed an aversion to going to the doctor). I then read your story from Grace Through Uncertainty course probably ten times. You found the lump. You panicked. But once the panic lifted enough to access your deeper wisdom, you knew it was okay. I can’t tell you how helpful that one email was, Sheryl. It provided me with just enough calm to drop down into my own body and access my inner knowingness. I knew it was okay, too. And when I went to get it checked out, it was confirmed: all was well.”

Kristen, San Francisco, CA

"I am so very grateful to have found you, your work, this course. It feels to me like setting out on a major course correction in my life."
“I am so very grateful to have found you, your work, this course. It feels to me like setting out on a major course correction in my life. Right now, as the course ends, that seems like a daunting task without your direct input and support, but I know you’ve equipped me well with practices and rituals to weave into the fabric of my life, and many other doors to open and explore.

“One thing I’ve learned is that this takes work… a lot of it. I feel as though I’ve shed a little layer of laziness, discouragement and anxiety and am feeling motivated and excited to keep going.

“With love and gratitude – Elizabeth, Santa Fe, NM”

"The Grace Through Uncertainty course was one of the best gifts I’ve given myself."

“The Grace Through Uncertainty course was one of the best gifts I’ve given myself. I have struggled with generalized anxiety and was looking for my next step- well, I found what I was looking for in this course.  The combination of information, practices, support, discussions, and resources really helped me explore the concept of grace in my life more deeply. To explore these deep and sensitive topics within a forum of thoughtful and respectful members was hugely helpful and healing. This course gave me some very concrete ways to ride the current of uncertainty with more grace and flow.  I continue to work on building my practices and send warm gratitude for your guidance and generosity in creating this course and for your fellowship on my journey.”

  1. Hiya recently read the book and it has answered lots of questions after 30 years of trying various methods of dealing with anxiety etc
    Self trust courses sounds great I am in the uk

    • The live version of the self-trust course is not full, but you could always take the self-paced version and join the live round when I run it again in the fall.

    • Hey Sheryl,

      I have followed you for a while and i have been loving your content. Im wondering: I’m not religious and not planning to become, is this course still for me? I’m wondering because some of the experiences below refer to them getting closer to god through this course?


      • Hi Alex: The course is spiritual but not religious. While the word God is mentioned I also use other words to describe our connection to something bigger than ourselves, like spirit, oneness, nature, etc. Most of the course participants are not religious but would describe themselves as spiritual.

  2. When is the last day to register for the course if I am not able to now financially?

      • Is it still possible to join the course? Best, Alex

        • Yes! I’ll be closing registration tomorrow but as long as you still see the purchase buttons you can join the course.

  3. My anxiety is very specific to noise and around mpise that my neighbours and people around me make, and I am quite obsessive about checking and controlling my home environment to try and stop me hearing noise from people around me, e.g. I avoid using my garden when other people are using theirs and playkng music etc (I live in a very built up area and am a hsp). Would this course benefit me and is it more in depth than your book? Thank you very much.

    • The course is more in depth than my book in that it’s a live course that guides you through specific exercises that will create more inner well-being. As your anxiety centers around control, the course would be enormously beneficial for you as it addresses the root cause of the need to control regardless of how it manifests.

      • Thank you Sheryl- just noticed all my typos, sorry!

  4. Dear Sheryl,

    Hi, I am Tuba from Turkey. Maybe you remember me from our private session. ( I have health anxiety.) I would like to participate this course. shall I get the self paced version or the live one because of time difference? I really would like to join the group sessions also. please advise me. warm regards,

    • Hi Tuba. Yes of course I remember you :). I would recommend the live version as at least one of the call times will work for you. I hope to see you there.

  5. Hi Sheryl! Will you run this course again in the fall? I’m still working my way through the 9-month Break Free From Anxiety course, so I don’t think I’m ready to sign up for another class.

    • Hi Gen! I only offer this course once a year live so I’ll offer it again next summer. But you can always take the self-paced version when you’re ready.

      • Is it still possible to sign up for the June 27th
        course? I only see a prompt for option 2

        • Yes Option 2 is the live course that starts tomorrow. There’s still space!

  6. Will the content of this course conflict with my Christian catholic beliefs?

    • I don’t think so but as I don’t know which beliefs you’re referring to I can’t say for sure. That said, my courses tend to attract a lot of Christians and Catholics and there’s never been a conflict.

      • What time are the live calls? And how long are the daily/weekly info videos? Ie material to get throuhh

        • Hi Ashley: It’s really as much or as little as you want, but I recommend about 15 minutes a day. What’s most important is to follow your own rhythm and trust what you’re needing.

          There are two group coaching calls that are currently scheduled for Tuesday, June 27th at 11am ET (New York time) and Tuesday, July 11th at 4pm ET. Usually only about 1/4 of participants are able to attend the live calls, but they’re all recorded, so if you are unable to attend live you will be able to listen later.

          Hope to see you there ❤️

  7. Hi there, how long is this live course, please? I’m. Considering joining as you say there are a few places left.

    • It’s 30 days but you’ll have lifetime access to all materials.

  8. Hi Sheryl, I have Emetophobia and I am scared of leaving my house and go places on my own for fear I wont feel well and can’t leave. Do you think this course will be a fit for me?
    Warmest Regards,


  9. Hello, I am from the Uk, is it too late to start this course? Could I catch up from the 27th June? Thank you x

    • I’ll be closing registration tomorrow so you can still sign up and catch up. x

  10. Hello Sheryl; I have spent the last 3 months doing your courses; Trust Yourself, the extended Trust yourself, and now have just finished Grace Through Uncertainty.
    I am 61 years old, and have spent my whole life living under the cloud of panic and anxiety. Never really knowing there was a way out, or how to go about doing it.
    Through an Instagram post i saw a recommendation for your new book; The Wisdom of Anxiety. My first thought on looking up the book, was that it actually looked like something i could understand. Clearly written and the format was enjoyable to read. From there i learned about your courses.
    Thank you doesn’t not seem a grand enough word for how much i have benefited from the last 3 months. I’ve looked foreword to my daily emails, and literally felt myself grow and glow.
    I will indeed see you in the field, and with my new tools in my box, i shall continue to learn about myself, and forgive myself.
    And i know i will go back over the materials and do the course again.
    With much love ❤️🙏

    • Andrea: I’m deeply touched by your words, and so happy that by grace and the magic of the internet you found your way to my work. Sending you much love until we meet again!

      • Hi Sheryl,

        I took your course on relationships right before I got married a few years ago- it helped me so much!! I’m back, now facing a possible chronic and life threatening illness. Would this course (grace through uncertainty) be helpful to me? Even tho my health anxiety may have much truth to it?

        • Hi Deb: I’m so sorry to hear that and yes, this course would be very helpful for you even though there’s truth to the health anxiety. Sending you love and prayers for healing.

  11. I went back and forth as to whether to commit to this course as I’d never done a group course like this before. I’d read Sheryl’s book the Wisdom of Anxiety and was looking to go a little deeper – particularly once I realised that control was at the root of my anxiety.
    I cannot even begin to find all the words for the difference this course has made in my life! The daily emails, weekly videos and MP3s, the group calls and forum have been amazing. The practices that I am putting into place are so life enriching and grounding. The sense of connection I now have to myself, my family, my community, the world, God and the natural beauty all around me is just beautiful. And I’m speaking as someone who is just a regular person that lives in a very busy built up area and I am a sceptic when it comes to all things spiritual- so this course isn’t just for all the mystics out there living on acres of land! Thank you again Sheryl for all that you have put into this course 🙂

    • Thank you, Nicola. I’m so glad you took the risk to take the course and that it met you where you needed to be met. Yes, we don’t have to live in nature to connect to the one song that weaves and dances all around us! Sending you much love. x

  12. I have just finished Grace through Uncertainty and it has been an absolute game changer for me. I’ve suffered with anxiety, mainly through intrusive thoughts which had been part of my being for the past twenty or so years. I found Sheryl’s work through the blog which did so much to quell the thoughts and let me know I was okay but it was only recently I decided that I wanted to go deeper and signed up for the course. I am so so glad I did. For although I’ve had less anxiety these past few years, the anchors, connection to nature, the daily practices I have put in place as a result of this course have made my soul sing and have enriched my life so much. I’m more able to see anxiety as a manifestation of a need to connect to my inner world and the natural world and this knowledge is so empowering and uplifting. I have no doubt it’s going to serve me beautifully going forward on this journey.
    The forum, the daily emails, the group calls, Sheryl’s videos and MP3s to listen to and keep are so soothing and reassuring. If you suffer from anxiety and intrusive thoughts this course really does give you the tools and knowledge to understand and love yourself whilst connecting and bringing love into the world around you. I have come away feeling less alone (anxiety is horrifically lonely and isolating) and more able to tap into my inner well. Thank you so much Sheryl for sharing your insight and knowledge and for helping me on this journey.

  13. I came to this course with health anxiety (intrusive thoughts–amplified by the pandemic), and I’m so glad I made the investment in my own well-being as it was truly worth every penny. Sheryl makes it so clear what these thoughts really are and why we’re having them, in a non-judgemental, non-pathologizing way. This is my third course with her, and each one has helped so much in softening the hard shell of shame and fear around anxiety. One huge benefit is seeing and hearing other humans with very similar struggles, vulnerably sharing their stories. You begin to see that you’re not alone, and in fact, there are many people who think and feel so much like you. Over the thirty days, I have noticed a real shift away from intrusive thoughts. The poetry, prayers, and mantra we learned have begun to fill my mind, pouring healing energy into my body and soul as well. These are the seeds for healing, regenerative thoughts and experiences that have begun to sprout. After thirty days, I’m under no illusions that I’m ‘cured’ of health anxiety, rather, I have a roadmap that I will continue to access as I continue on my journey. Sheryl has walked these paths and shares what she knows about the territory so generously. I think of her as a modern-day shaman, transmitting her wisdom in a virtual cave, helping us all to heal our souls. If her writing resonates with you, I believe you will benefit greatly from a deeper dive into her work. I loved this course and got a lot from “Trust Yourself” as well. Best wishes 🙂

    • Thank you for sharing this here, Sarah Beth. Your words are beautiful to read and receive, especially the last part about meeting in the virtual cave. Sending you much love!

  14. Hi Sheryl, I am about to read your book and wondering if I should read it first and then do a course or if I can do them simultaneously? Also, I am wondering which course I should sign up for – my anxiety revolves mostly around fears/paranoia of safety even though I live in a perfectly safe place! It also manifests over obsessive thoughts around over-analyzing specific conversations I have and whether I perhaps I have said something someone will be offended by or if someone inadvertently heard something I said that they may be offended by or misinterpreted- basically questioning myself. What do you think? Thanks and love your blog!

    • I recommend starting with the book then taking my Trust Yourself course.

      • Thank you! 🙂

  15. Hi Sheryl! Is there a self-paced version of the Grace Through Uncertainty course available?

  16. Hello!
    Your book has been such a joy to read. Truly life-changing. I am currently going through a breakup from a relationship in which I was very much in love and sadly has ended and has been extremely difficult, this was my first boyfriend. I am currently 25 and am experiencing a lot of anxiety and I think I experienced relationship anxiety and didn’t know, I was constantly asking myself “Do I love him, am I settleing, is this love, etc” After breaking up and therapy I understood or accepted I was very in love with him. It ended because he loved me but was not IN love with me which I guess sparked a lot of insecurities in me. I have the intrusive thought of “What if I’m gay and I don’t know” etc which has been exhausting all the googling, ruminating, reassurance etc. I am a bit better now but still have these thoughts. As you said, intrusive thoughts at the core are the fear of uncertainty so right now I’m not sure which course to do! I am signed up for the 9-month one but until then maybe I can do this one or another short one that will help me go through this, my therapist I don’t know if believes a lot in this intrusive thought / HOCD / ROCD but what I get is she doesn’t go further on the rabbit hole of am I a lesbian or not because she said that all of that is a coping mechanism but I still don’t find the way to stop this obsessive thought. I feel very accompanied and that I’m not alone through this page and your book. I have been thinking that maybe the core of these thoughts is validation, lack of trust or worth, fear of being someone I’m not, fear of being SEEN as someone I’m not.

  17. I’m so grateful I trusted my intuition and took this course. Sheryl’s gentle and loving guidance along with her expertise came through for me on so many levels. What a wealth of information, and without the “pressure” of completing things at a set time or doing things a certain way. I can’t recommend it enough, and I’m looking forward to going through the material a second time.

    • I’m so glad you benefited from the course Alessandra, and thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and experience here. 😊

  18. Hi Sheryl,

    Do you know what time/day the group coaching calls will be? That will be a big determinant in whether or not I am able to do this.

    I am so grateful for your work!

    • Hi Danielle!

      Yes, the calls are currently scheduled for Tuesday, July 12th at 4pm ET (New York time) and Tuesday, July 26th at 12:15pm ET. Usually only about 1/4 of participants are able to attend the live calls, but they’re all recorded, so if you are unable to attend live you will be able to listen later.

      • Ok thank you Sheryl!

  19. Hi Sheryl,
    I am in New Zealand. Because of the time difference, would you recommend this course?
    The subject matter really resonates with me but not sure I will be able to do the course with the time difference

    • Hi Phoebe: We have a global community and many course members from New Zealand and Australia. You’ll receive the daily emails mid-day your time each day, and if you can wake up a bit early you’ll be able to join the first call live. All calls are recorded so you can listen back afterwards. If it’s resonating I encourage you to join as I won’t be offering it live for another year!

  20. Dear Sheryl,

    I have followed your blog and some courses for a while and also have done intensive psychoanalytic therapy with an amazing therapist for a long time that has helped me in ways I can’t even put in words. I suffered from several type of intrusive thoughts, from POCD to ROCD, but my therapist is also more about the core rather than one specific type since they all often trace back to the same inner challenges. It finished a while back and I am doing well most times. Mainly during transitions (currently trying to conceive, an early miscarriage and doing the conscious motherhood course) I tend to struggle with a general anxious state and some intrusive thoughts…

    Whenever I attempt to create some rituals etc. inspired from your courses, my mind starts doubting, saying it is not my way of dealing with thins because I don’t really believe in God etc. since I tend to rationalize or doubt things and myself. I also end up questioning me signing up for another course is just an attempt to control again and not being able to deal with uncertainty etc. So i end up being not open or full of doubt.
    So I am quite unsure if this is the right course for me…
    Another thing that is difficult for me is, that I am very hard on myself, I tend get quite obsessive about the exercises etc. and not allow myself to watch tv etc cus I want to do it „right“ – obviously my ocd is at work here too.

    Either way, I have loved following your blog and especially during my wedding transition it was very helpful!

    Hi from Germany 🙂

    • Fanny: You’re far from alone with the struggles you’re describing! Intention is everything: if you’re signing up for the course to try to control uncertainty and “get it right” you probably won’t receive much benefit. But if you can shift that slightly and take the course as an experiment – keeping in mind that belief in “God” is NOT a necessary part of creating regular practices (I address this quite a bit in the course), -then you might find that things start to shift. Of course it comes down to self-trust: tuning into yourself to discern whether taking the course would be loving for you or not. You can’t go wrong and it sounds like you’ve already grown tremendously!

  21. Hi Sheryl,
    How much time daily is the commitment for Grace Through Uncertainty? Are there certain times to be available for the 30 days? I am looking to see how I can take the course. Thank you!

    • Hi Carol: It’s really as much or as little as you want, but I recommend about 15 minutes a day. What’s most important is to follow your own rhythm and trust what you’re needing.

      There are two group coaching calls that are currently scheduled for Tuesday, July 12th at 4pm ET (New York time) and Tuesday, July 26th at 12:15pm ET. Usually only about 1/4 of participants are able to attend the live calls, but they’re all recorded, so if you are unable to attend live you will be able to listen later.

      Hope to see you there ❤️

  22. Hi Sheryl,
    My anxiety/intrusive thoughts are very specific around getting/being depressed. I have a deep fear of not feeling “good” and when I have a crisis in my life, it seems my mind thinks “oh no, she can’t handle this, best distract from it” and instead of feeling the actual raw emotions, I just feel uncomfortable and start obsessing about “What if I never feel happy again, what is wrong with me, my life is over, I will get/am depressed and will end up in a mental hospital, I will never feel hope or meaning again” etc etc. This is ruining my life! I don’t want to do stuff that I used to like anymore, because all I do anyway is obsess around not feeling what I “should” feel and that this means there is somehting wrong with me and I will never feel happy again, and the whole experience turns in to something almost more traumatizing. The only thing that seems to help is when I can get down to my raw emotions but most of the time I am to scared to try or don’t know how. Is this course for me at all? I feel so alone with this particular fear and intrusive thoughts…
    Best, Malin

  23. Hey Sheryl,

    I am very interested in signing up for your Grace Through Uncertainty course that starts tomorrow, however I am unsure if it will be too triggering for me right now. In May I experienced a health event that has thrown me for a loop and put me into a hyper-vigilant state of anxiety. I am working with doctors to help address this issue and the storm seems to be calming. Is there any chance for a trial of the course to see how it might be? Thank you for your time!

  24. Hi,

    Do you have any plans on doing a live course during the 2024 year?

    • Hi Guadalupe: Yes, I’ll be running a live course on July 20th, 2024.
