For awakening women change agents who want to live authentically,
share their gifts with the world and lead from the wisdom of the heart
Discover the 8 Essential Doorways to your authentic power and embrace your feminine leadership to make the difference you know you’re here to make…
Are you waking up to your deeper desire to be and express your most authentic Self in your life?
Do you feel called to a greater wisdom and power within you, to harness the potential of the life you’ve been given and make a bigger difference?
Do you long to follow your passion, share your unique gifts and lead your life and work in a way that expresses who you are and re-embraces your essential feminine wisdom and values?
If the answer is yes, then you’re not alone.
Many of us are waking up to the seed of our creative potential but it can also be challenging bringing it to full blossom…
Whether you consider yourself to be one of life’s leaders or not, there’s something waking up in us as women, calling us to play our part in co-creating a new future. Can you feel it?
We appear to be at an extraordinary threshold of a new era in our collective journey as women – a process of evolution as we continue to transform the landscape of our lives and culture to one which is more nurturing, heart-inspired and affirming of who we really are.
Yet, alongside our desire to live our potential and make a bigger difference, we often struggle to let go of the old, often unconscious limiting patterns that have shaped our sense of who we are. So we continue to live out old stories that keep us stuck in a distorted perception of who we are, our value and what’s possible for our lives – especially as leaders and change agents for our future generations.
Do any of these challenges sound familiar?
You’re at a crossroads in your life and feeling held back by the fear of stepping out of your comfort zone and following your heartfelt vision
You’re in touch with a deep yearning to make a bigger difference but lack the clarity or confidence you need to step out authentically as a leader
You have a sense of deeper purpose for your life but you don’t feel on track with it or perhaps your not sure what it is or how to bring it to life
You feel hampered by your own conditioned beliefs and struggle to respond to life in generative ways that create new positive experiences for you
You want to step into leadership but you’re put off by the old, traditionally masculine models of leadership that don’t inspire you
You struggle to create time for yourself and feel off balance and depleted trying to juggle the many demands of your various life ‘roles’,
You often feel alone on your journey and yearn for more support, connection and collaboration from others who can meet you where you are, see your potential and support you on your journey of transformation
I totally understand.
I’ve experienced this too and know first hand how challenging this journey can be.
That’s why I’ve created this new programme for you…
Imagine following your passion, doing the work you love and making a real difference without compromising who you are or sabotaging your well-being?
This 4 month guided journey will provide a container for you to:
Awaken your feminine wisdom and the authentic power you hold to make a difference to your own life and in the world around you
Align with the higher purpose and vision for your life and access the courage to step into authentic leadership of your unique contribution
Meet daily challenges with openness and appreciation, turning them into opportunities to learn and flourish
Harness the deeper wisdom and power you hold to move beyond your fear based patterns and into new ways of relating
Trust and allow the ‘greater field of life’ to inspire, guide and support you to manifest your brightest future
Access a more authentically feminine way to lead your life and work that nourishes your soul and allows you to flourish as a feminine leader
Take more care of yourself and be part of a supportive, nurturing community of women with whom you can share your journey of transformation
My invitation to you…
I’ve created a brand new, 4 month guided quest for women who feel called to join me and other dedicated women in a transformative Wisdom Circle.
If you’re ready to step into new possibilities for your leadership; making a meaningful difference with your gifts, embracing your authentic feminine strengths and fulfilling a more soulful purpose, then please join me for…
A Four Month Wisdom Circle & Coaching Programme
Starting 10th January 2013
The Wisdom Circle is the foundation of our work together and although it is a highly original framework today, it has magical, ancient roots originating from the timeless wisdom teachings of Mayan culture. I was privileged to train with some amazing teachers of this Earth Wisdom (RainbowHawk and WindEagle from the Ehama Institute) for over 10 years. I have also integrated much of my own experiential learning with other transformative practices and evolutionary teachings, as well as the learning gained through my work with hundreds of women leaders. The synthesis of this is The Wisdom Circle, a unique expression of these teachings as a contemporary design of ‘modern medicine for women’. The Wisdom Circle is also the name we give to our group. In other words, when you join The Wisdom Quest, you’ll become part of a powerful Wisdom Circle of like minded women, who will support, nurture and uplift you on your personal Quest.
Here’s what we’ll be awakening on our 10 module journey
The Wisdom Circle is a framework or map, representing the elements of our natural power structured in 8 directions (or ‘doorways’) around the circle which, in itself, represents wholeness. In each module we’ll be opening and moving through a new ‘doorway’ to our core power and learning evolutionary principles and transformative practices that will help you to awaken and cultivate these innate but untapped feminine leadership capacities. You’ll be applying your learning to where you most want to transform yourself as you step into your own unique quest to the heart of your feminine leadership.

We’ve deliberately spread the modules over two week blocks to give more spaciousness to the programme and have structured the programme in a way that is easy to engage online. The first week of each module you’ll be able to listen in your own time to the course materials and use the worksheet to support you.

More About Joey, Your Programme Facilitator
Joey Walters is a Transformative Coach and Evolutionary Leadership Facilitator dedicated to helping people who feel called to make bigger contribution to life, to follow their true calling and lead the lives they were born to live. She specialises in helping women who want to make a difference in the world to lead their lives and work from their authentic power and feminine wisdom, finding greater fulfillment by realising their life purpose and creative potential as empowered feminine leaders.
16 years ago, after many years struggling to express her own leadership in a way that felt authentic, she left her corporate leadership role and embarked on a transformational journey to discover who she was and the difference she really wanted to make. Since then she has been guided by many amazing teachers, coaches and mentors on her journey and was particularly privileged to train with Earth Wisdom teachers RainbowHawk and WindEagle, from the Ehama Institute in New Mexico, over a period of 10 years. Joey is also an ordained Interfaith Minister and Spiritual Counsellor and weaves into her development work a depth of experience in many transformative practices.
In 2004, through her business Dancehammer, Joey founded ‘Women at the Heart of Leadership’, a development initiative for women wanting to lead their lives and work with greater purpose, confidence, personal fulfillment and well-being. She’s been honoured to facilitate and coach hundreds of women leaders to reconnect with who they are and have the courage to lead from a more purposeful, feminine and authentic power within themselves. She has a gift for drawing out the passion and potential in others and facilitating the personal transformation that enables her clients to step beyond old limiting identities and bring their contributions to life in ways that are natural, fulfilling and aligned with the lives they want to live. Joey lives in Scotland, UK with her life partner and their two gorgeous ‘wee’ boys.
“As a business owner and leader in my field, I found coaching with Joey among the richest and most helpful of professional experiences. She supported the formation of life intentions for my work, identified barriers to success, and assisted in the development of essential practices. Feedback from clients and colleagues affirm that this process transformed key relationships and goals for my new business. If you have the opportunity to work with Joey, expect to experience both personal and professional transformation…a deeply rewarding experience.” Verlee A. Copeland, Director – The Copeland Institute, www.thecopelandinstitute.com
”Joey’s presence itself is healing because she embodies warmth, wisdom and deep compassion, creating the container to transform our deepest wounds and patterns. In my coaching with Joey, she helped me to stay with myself in navigating the dark waters of my deepest fears and doubts to get back to a place of true power and confidence. She believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. After a session with Joey, I feel renewed, energized and ready to move forward. Where there was fear, there is hope, where there was darkness, there is room for light. Joey does the inner work with you and then helps you take that inner transformation outside into your leadership in the world.” Leela Somaya, Succulent Business Strategist, Spiritual Lawyer and Evolutionary Coach. www.leelasomaya.com
“I had the tremendous pleasure of being coached by Joey and can only highly recommend her. She guided me through a very personal journey transforming my inhibiting beliefs into empowering ones. We not only touched upon my relationship with myself, but also with others and the world. I learned different practices that help me stay in line with the real truth, in line with my powerful self. I am ever so grateful to Joey who with her unconditional support, understanding and careful listening made transformational change possible. She skillfully established a wonderful relationship of trust that enabled my personal growth. Joey is at all times professional, a warm hearted and caring person who helps you look where it hurts but only to help you jump to the next level of strength and confidence. She truly is a gift to the world: for women, leaders and whoever wants to embark on a life changing journey.” Iris Kloth, Career Coach

She has supported me on every level and has allowed me to safely explore the inner barriers which have prevented me from moving forward. It has been an amazing journey and I know that working with Joey has not only helped me in my leadership at work, but has also had a positive impact on all areas of my life including my relationships with my family and friends. Joey brings to her coaching a wisdom, warmth and dedication which has helped me discover my strengths, values and inner wisdom. She has a true gift and her approach is personal, empowering and inspirational.” Debbie King, Public Affairs Officer – Shelter Scotland.
"Working with Joey is a truly life changing experience. She gently probes into the depths of your soul and brings out the best in you. She has a wonderful talent of helping you to clarify your purpose and vision and helps you to develop the confidence and skills to bring your vision to life. I was particularly inspired by her very holistic, heart-centred leadership approach, which helped me to recognise that I am a leader of myself and my whole life rather than just focusing on my leadership at work. Joey is both inspirational and motivational to work with and makes time spent together very focused and purposeful. Although she will challenge your thinking and test your courage, she'll also inject fun into her unique approach." Liz Whyte, Life Coach - Life Changes.
"I have worked with a few coaches but Joey is outstanding. She has a rare insight and coaching talent which helped me to clarify my vision as well as develop the confidence and skills to achieve it.
