For the past couple weeks I have been sharing about a new, immersive experience for 2023 called The Ignited Woman. The Ignited Woman is a year long container dedicated to being the intimate feminine leader.
I believe that leadership is about intimacy. It's about seeing one another. Understanding one another. Motivating each other to be our best selves. And to run impressive, life changing missions too.
To be a whole, nourished, flourishing leader, there is a paradigm shift that occurs. We were brought up in a patriarchal cultural standard of leadership. And, with more women coming into the arena of leadership, that standard needs some tweaking. Women are entirely different life forms after all. For example, women operate on a 28 day cycle, but men operate on a 24 hour one. That alone creates a divide in the old paradigm and the new one.
I have been in some sort of leadership conversation since I was a teenager. I have tried to fit myself into the old paradigm. And while I was successful in terms of accolades and prestige, I also was burned out, having difficulty as a mother and disconnected to my friends, family and husband. I did not love my life. I did not feel turned on. I was not orgasmic. I was not abundantly flourishing.
I knew there had to be a better way.
Over the past five years as a business owner and a coach, I have been following the nudges to my own mission and sweet spot of what I am here to do. I have been on a twisty path that has landed on self love, happy relationships, manifestation and a few other things. And along the way I decided to incorporate all of it.
The Ignited Brand is about feminine, sacred leadership. It's about living the best, turned on, beautiful life while also holding powerful, wave making missions. We don't have to sacrifice our families for our work. We don't have to choose our work over our relationships. We get to have it all. And we get to be supported in every way imaginable to make it happen.
The Ignited Woman has three parts. There is the actual container of 8 programs (which I'll explain down below). There's an option to upgrade to VIP for more connected support if you desire. And, there's an option to be certified inside The Ignited Brand. If you desired to be an Ignited Practitioner in the future, or have your work referred by me, the certification process is fabulous.
Some of the programs below will be marketed next year to the public on their own. Some will not. And, until Saturday at midnight (12 / 31/ 2022) each of the three containers is on pre-sale. That means that the investment price of each will rise on Sunday morning.
A few more details for you…
Why Me? Why Katherine Phifer?
Leadership is in my DNA, from actual professional experience to a long line of leaders in my ancestry. I do not shy away from the challenging conversations. Each of the 8 programs is an initiation I have journeyed through and am happy to walk besides you as you navigate through each one. I am committed to our rise together, and I know what it takes.
The Ignited Woman Container
Each of the 8 programs will be delivered to you throughout the year. Some of the programs will be delivered live with a replay. Some will be a combination of personal work and live work. You don’t have to come to the live parts to benefit. If your learning style is to do things on your own time, without the constraints of meeting times, you can totally do that. And, if you desire to be in the live energy, you can do that too.
Everything will be designed to fit into your gorgeous life.
This is an information and practical based year. There will always be optional homework to take any information and apply it to your unique life.
Also! There’s a creative component! Art skills are not required, but if you love being creative, you’ll love this!
This is a Master’s level container.

Sometimes we miss the mark just a little bit. It's not our fault. There were clouds in the sky. The conditions were murky. We couldn't see the light. We are trying to map out our soul path without the appropriate tools.
Your North Star is your soul purpose. It's that thing that lights only you up. It's what you were brought here, at this point in history, to live out. It could be as complicated or as simple as your heart desires. It is only yours. And, it is meant to guide you home to you.
Often though, our soul mission feels a little too far to reach. It feels like we can't make it. It feels like it just isn't meant for us. Maybe we aren't that lucky. Or maybe we aren't supposed to move towards it in this lifetime. So, we don't. We sit back, and feel slightly unfulfilled or greatly unfulfilled because we aren't reaching our dreams.
The predominant patriarchal culture says that our dreams are too big, or are too loud, or are just too weird. Our anxiety and fear say it's too much, too far, and too risky. Our family and friends raise their eye brows. Our work colleagues think we are a little nutty.
But, this is it! This is what we are meant to do! This is our soul purpose. And, only we can do it.
How do you find it? Because sometimes it feels like searching for something lost, or so deeply hidden, it's like searching for gemstones in the depths of the ocean.
Here's how to find your North Star...
You follow the clues. You follow the things that light you up. You follow the turn on. You follow the "YES!" You follow what makes you happy and happier right now.
You follow the clues for what kind of help you need in the moment. You can't do it alone (well, maybe you could, but it would take lifetimes). You seek support in whatever unique way suits you. Healers, therapists, coaches, mentors and all kinds of service providers are all available for your unique needs.
You let go of all the stuff that feels like it is weighing you down. You become unavailable for the things that are no longer in alignment to you. You release things like certain people, conversations, habits and mindsets. You decide that your soul mission is way more important.
You make peace with the things that cause you to feel like you don't fit in. You decide that the things that others find fault with in you might just be the keys to unlocking your greatest desires.
Maybe you really like bougie things and everyone you know looks down on that. Or maybe you are super lazy, but get things done when they light you right up. Maybe you desire to live a nomad life and travel the world with your laptop and a suitcase. Maybe you want to build a life where you do your work, home school your kids and you din't feel burned out in the process.
You trust the things that are bigger than you. The Universe, God, Allah, Angels, Spirit Guides... whatever you connect with. They are there and cheering you on. They want you to live out your soul mission. They want you to experience your desired life.
You move in little steps and in quantum leaps. Sometimes it will feel like this journey you are on is endless. Will you ever be truly there? Yes. But then you will be moving towards something even more juicy. The journey never ends. And, you can move as fast or as slow as you desire.
You come back to you, again and again. Daily. You come back to your North Star. You remember it's out there, no matter how foggy or cloudy the sky gets. Your North Star is yours and guiding you to you.
Until next time, be amazing and do fabulous things.

If you'd like to read recent articles I've written:
The humans I work with are often business owners. They are artists, creatives, healers, coaches and mentors. They are industry leaders. They are people in charge of big projects for Fortune 500 companies. They are leaders.
In my conversations with them, we talk a lot about what lights them up.
I ask… what turns you on? What are you passionate about? What ignites your spark?
Like, what makes you so excited to wake up and go do during the day?
And, sometimes they grasp to find the answer.
Work is great. But it could be better, and more exciting.
Home life is fine. But sometimes the routine feels like a rut.
Everything is fine. Fine. Fine. Fine.
Fine doesn’t ignite the fire though, right?
Fine doesn’t light up the spark in our bellies.
And that can be tricky to face. Because sometimes we don’t want to rock the boat if everything is “fine.”
But, what if there were a few tweaks that we could do to light ourselves up more?
Here are five bespoke ways you can ignite your spark today…
(by the way, bespoke is my new favorite word).
✨ Lie down on a comfortable surface. Close your eyes and take in deep, steady breaths. Send the breath all the way down to your sacral chakra (this is a place two inches below your navel- the uterine bowl if you are female). Breath cleansing air into that part of your body until it feels replenished and connected to the rest of your body. (If you have time, you can do this with all of your chakras.)
✨ Go into your closet and pick out your favorite clothes. If they need to be cleaned or pressed, go ahead and do that. And then, put them on your body. If makeup, sensual oils and doing your hair lights you up, do that too! Notice how you feel when you wear clothes that feel really good on your body.
✨ Write out a list of everything (and I mean everything!) that lights you up. What gets you feeling sparky and on fire? Sex? Love? Conversations? Books? Time in the bathtub? A fun project at work? A creative project? Dinner at a bougie restaurant? Get it out on paper so that you can see what you want to infuse more of in your life.
✨ Ok, now the opposite is to write out everything that makes you feel blah. What takes your spark away? Fights with your love? The school pickup situation? Conversations about certain topics? Tasks inside your work? What can you delegate, shift or not do anymore? What boundaries can you implement to make these things better?
(Side note- the car ride home from picking up my boys used to be stressful. They would be in a mood after a full day and it was a long 20 minute drive. Now, they each take turns being “DJ” and we listen to the most fabulous music. It has totally changed my vibe and my attitude about riding home with them.)
✨ Dream about your ideal day. From the minute you wake to the minute you fall asleep, if there were no chores, no tasks that felt like they bogged you down, no issues with someone you love, nothing that felt like it wasn't very fun, what would your day be like? And more importantly, how would you feel? (Write it all out, or speak it into the voice notes of your phone.)
Ok. So which one most resonates with you right now? Which of these will you try today?
