Rev. Nicole Havelka, Business Consultant and Yogi




Do you have WAY too much on your plate?

Making a calendar that both gets work done and honors your need for rest and time for friends and family is an uphill battle in an increasingly distracted, anxious and exhausted world.

Underneath your reluctance to power down your devices, to leave email unanswered and to say ‘no’ to one more request to chair the next volunteer committee is a sense that you are unworthy of rest.

Of course you feel that way. Our racist, patriarchal, capitalist system teaches all of us that our only value lies in how much we do and produce. This is simply not true.

You are worthy of rest simply by virtue of being YOU.

Join Rev. Nicole Havelka, a leadership coach and mindful meditation teacher, in a workshop that will help you step back, name your self-care needs and priorities, empower you to manage your time for work-life balance, and introduce you to mindfulness practices that will sustain you through stress-filled times and spark transformation.

This workshop will include:

  • Mindful practices for naming your priorities
  • The cultural trappings that contribute to our sense of unworthiness
  • Skills for saying no to too many commitments and activities
  • Practices for setting boundaries around technology use, toxic people and our work lives
  • Self-care and mindfulness practices that can be easily integrated into daily life

Rev. Nicole Havelka is building a vibrant community of mindful leaders who want to defy the trends of burnout, exhaustion and aimlessness by prioritizing themselves and what matters most. She is a 500-hour Registered Yoga Instructor, a reiki master and an ordained clergy person in the United Church of Christ with a background in trauma-sensitive yoga and restorative yoga and meditation as well as 20 years of leadership development in the wider church. She is the owner and lead coach, trainer and facilitator at Nicole Havelka Consulting. She works to make her corner of the world less racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic and ableist, and more just, equitable and joyful.
