Upcoming Academy Course: The Anxiety Workshop

by LDI Team Members on September 29, 2016



It’s time… we’re getting serious.

It’s time to talk openly + honestly about anxiety.

Let’s remove the stigma around it faster than you can take off your bra after a long hard day.

I am honoured, excited, nervous and glad to invite you to the LIVE unveiling of our new Shining Biz & Life Academy course…


Anxiety is such a HUGE issue for so many people today.

As many as 1 in 4 people suffer from it – and we, as women, as carers, as empaths and as parents – are at an even higher risk.

SO many people suffer it, but don’t talk about it.

It’s kept secret + swept under the rug + not spoken about.

And in that silence, there’s suffering, loneliness + heartache.

You don’t have to do it alone! It’s time to talk anxiety + all that goes with it.

It’s time to talk the borg, the brutal, the heartbreaking + the beautiful!!

I have anxiety.

I used to think it was a failing, something to hide + wrestle with and live with in secret, pretending that it was all OKAY.

And then … I discovered that it was okay to be not okay. It was okay to need help.

I’ve wrestled in anxiety’s grip. I know how it feels to live with the constant crush against my chest, the inability to breathe, the constant clenched hands…

But I also know how it feels to heal. To accept the help that I need to get back to myself; to accept the things that I need so that I can thrive!

In this workshop, I’ll share frankly about my journey with an anxiety disorder, along with the practical tools that have helped me heal and THRIVE.

This is an ACADEMY EXCLUSIVE course that we won’t be sharing with anyone but our glorious members of the Shining Biz & Life Academy! (Not a member yet? Sign up now!).

I will share with you my own personal journey with an anxiety disorder and give you a tonne of practical tools that helped me heal!

Sign up now to join me now!

(Enrolments to the Academy close 30 September! If you’re keen… jump in now!)

In this anxiety workshop you will learn:

  • How to recognise an anxiety disorder + what to do if you think you have one
  • My vulnerable story about living with an anxiety disorder – from being crushed by it to thriving with it
  • How to heal it –  with tools and options from alternative, eastern and western medicine (I love ‘em all!)

Whether you think you might have an anxiety disorder yourself or you’re supporting someone who has one, this workshop will be a deep dive into anxiety + all its troubles + gifts.

Make yourself a cup of fragrant tea, bring a cushion + a rug, and let’s circle. Let’s talk about the anxiety that so many of us carry + how we can heal.

Join us on Tuesday, October 12 @ 1:00pm US PST / Wednesday, October 13 @ 7:00am AUS – Canberra AEDT (Convert to your time zone here:

“Loved it Leonie! Even had a little cry… Realised that even as I listened my hubby was not respecting that I was listening to something and kept interrupting me every couple of minutes once he got up. When I talked with him about this, he shared that I hadn’t set the boundary. I hadn’t said I was listening to something right now and I’d be with him shortly. Will be listening again and doing my best to implement!” – Cat


“Hearing your story Leonie meant so much to me. It was so beautiful. I also loved the scripts.” – Blake


“After listening to the workshop, I sat back and thought about what was having me feel overwhelmed and drained. I have group that meets every Wednesday. It started as a 4 week intuitive intensive and it ended up going for 4 months. Love the girls. We took a break with the idea of coming back in September. As September got closer I was getting overwhelmed and anxious. So I contacted them and explained that I would love to do just 1 day a month, they choose a topic or I and that will be our monthly meeting. No stress for weekly meetings and sometimes we will do a girls night out and go pub hopping to local haunted pubs. hehehe. Thank you so much Leonie Dawson! That is just what I needed.” – Mary-June


Well, that’s it for now lovebugs! We’ll be having more new Academy courses coming your way each and every month! Join today if you aren’t already a member!

Huge love + appreciation,
