Thanks again to our keynote speakers, workshop leaders, volunteers, expo participants, sponsors, video crew, friends and family and to you for joining us in an extraordinary day.
We woke up Saturday morning to dark clouds and heavy snow. Little did we know that almost three hundred women would trudge through the sleet to participate in the first See Jane Do Passion into Action Conference. The event sold out on Friday and we could only cross our fingers and hope that women in our community were ready to connect, inspire, and show the world that women are taking the lead in a big way.
As we pulled into the parking lot shortly after 8:00 we were awe struck that there were hardly any spots to be found. Inside, the lobby was a buzz with hundreds of women laughing and energized for the day to come.
The day kicked off with the See Jane Do video that chronicled the year of our program as we set out to capture the stories of everyday women doing extraordinary things for the planet. Following we were graced by the captivating stories of Sandy Schmidt founder of Women of Worth and Mary Elizabeth Young and Cathe' Fish, members of Women's Earth Alliance.
Co-founder and president of Bioneers, Nina Simons shared the importance of finding your own story and following your passion to enhance the planet. Gloria Feldt reminded us that to create a movement we must actually move into action. She said the conference included the most evolved group of women she has ever spoken to. Former UN Amassador for the Status of Women, Linda Tarr-Whelan was in awe that so many women showed up and stressed the importance of balanced leadership.
Musicians, Catherine Scholz and Sista Kat lit up the room with their inspiring lyrics and over twenty-one organizations and businesses presented opportunities to live better lives and support one another. Seventeen workshop leaders shared their passions through hands-on sessions and twenty volunteers stepped up to optimize your experience.
NCTV and The FARM volunteered their time to document this historic event and our sponsors reinforced the importance of women gathering together to make a difference.
We now feel more than ever, that there is much work to be done. That we must all do our part and follow our passion in order to create a sustainable future for the generations to come. Many women and men have worked together to enable us the privilege of where we stand now. Now it's our turn to get things done and we'll do it together.
Thank you to everyone who participated and for your support of creating a platform for women's voices and stories. We hope you'll join our Extraordinary Jane Campaign and participate in future endeavors.

Kathleen has a gift for
bringing women together, especially women who are seeking connection,
clarification and a deeper meaning to the way they move in the world. Her
quest to live an authentic life has led her through the Ecuadorian rain forest,
a meaningful partnership with Pachamama Alliance, and monthly rituals and
circles for women.
Kathleen shares how she discarded
what appeared to be a "dream life" years ago and transitioned into
the healing arts. We are thrilled that she is co-leading the workshop, Living
Your Passion with Mary Elizabeth Young where they will explore living a

2. What do you
love most about the work you are doing?
I love the
feminine energy. I love balancing the feminine with the masculine to
create equilibrium and wholeness. I love ritual and ceremony. I love
bringing the divine to the mundane and the mundane to the divine.
Connection. Bringing truth forward. I love working with women.
I made a commitment about 10 years ago to let go of anything I was doing from
the place of duty and to have everything I do in my life come from wholehearted
love. I love my life, my work is an integral part of my life.
3. What were
the motivating factors that inspired you to get involved and share your passion?
had a life that looked like the “dream” life, an extremely successful husband,
all the material things – living in London with a chauffeur and fancy
everything but who I was was hidden and suppressed in the world I lived
in. I was dying inside. I needed to fully be who I am at my essence
and bring that forward in the world in all that I do. Doing what I
love. To really know WHO I am and to live that fully – that was the
4. Who were
the some female role models or mentors that inspired your work and passion?
Mary, Mary Magdalene, the Divine Feminine. I just completed a year of
working with Lynne Twist getting really clear on my intentions and goals
bringing forth my deepest essence. I am also involved with the Nobel
Women Peace laureates and have learned so much traveling with them. They
are ordinary women who are beyond extraordinary because of their passionate
commitment that informs every action they take. I have also been influenced
by Angeles Arrien whom I studied with for three years. It was through her
work that I made the commitment of living a life of wholehearted love and
letting go of “duty”.
5. Why is the
work you are doing so important for everyday women?
believe that so many of us get caught up in a life that others have designed
for us and what makes it easier for all those around us. We have
forgotten who we are and what lights up the fires of our hearts. We have
numbed ourselves, put ourselves to sleep and quit feeling. I believe the
heart holds the answers for us. The feminine qualities like intuition
have been suppressed in our society. I feel it is important to learn to
cultivate spaciousness to learn to listen to the inner ears of our hearts.
Our passions live in our hearts. Each of us holds a precious thread of
the tapestry of life…. We need to truly know what that thread is and have the
opportunity to beam out our unique essence. Being and doing what we
love! Imagine a world of everyone in touch with what they LOVE, we would
have a world based in love and not the paradigm of fear we are in now as a

Shawn Tuttle is a simplifier.
As the founder of Project Simplify she helps people live and work
in the flow rather than the clutter. Shawn enables her clients to take
control of their experience and live organized and authentic lives. With email
overload, social media, the demand for multi-tasking and gadgets galore,
Shawn's timing couldn't be better.
In addition to following her passion
as a Natural Professional and a simplification coach Shawn is an accomplished
speaker and writer. We are thrilled that Shawn is leading the workshop, Live

Shawn shares the source of her spark
and the true meaning behind passion.
1. How are you putting your passion
My passionis helping people
live and work in the flow of their authentic selves (I call this being a Natural
Professional). For the last several years, this has meant helping women
organize the information that is making them feel ineffective, disorganized,
and out-of-control. Expanding on this, the theme this year is the Natural
Professional, and I'm on fire with it! I just launched a year-long
participatory book project, and will be introducing a six-week online program
in the spring.
2. What do you love most about the work
you are doing?
Empowering women to take control of
their experience. Ironically, while we've become socially engrained to separate
ourselves from our work, this is exactly the realm of our life where we can
develop habits that transform our lives! Rather than settle for being tossed on
choppy waves out at sea, we can learn to navigate back to peaceful waters.
Whether one on one, writing or speaking, supporting women on this journey is
3. What were the motivating factors
that inspired you to get involved and share your passion?
Passion is so interesting--consider
it's Latin origin: to suffer. We each experience hardship in life. Once we've
made it through a tough situation we realize that by sharing our experience, we
might help make someone else's journey a little bit easier.
In my case, I got involved in a debilitating situation in which I completely
lost touch with my Self--long story. Suffice here to say that once I got out of
the situation, I felt like I was about as tall as an acorn. Actually, a pea.
And yet, there remained the tiniest flicker of a spark that refused to be
The next several years were dedicated to nourishing that spark into a roaring
blaze. My work through Project Simplify has been fueled by the desire to help
people fan their own flames, to remember that they, and only they, are the
heroines of their lives.
4. Who were the some female role models
or mentors that inspired your work and passion?
The inspiring women in my life were,
and continue to be, all who have the clarity and courage to sing their song.
Looking back, in high school I read Jane Austen's books. Besides loving her
writing, her choice not to marry despite the prevailing norms and legal status
of women at the time made a huge impression on me.
The fact that women of that day (who didn't have the family support that Jane
had) would join a convent instead of marrying in order to pursue their literary
interests opened a door in my mind--one that led to an entirely different world
where heart-based passion could prevail against confining societal standards.
5. Why is the work you are doing so
important for everyday women?
Quite simply, if we don't learn how
to navigate our own daily life, we will be pulled in a million directions.
While they may seem minor, effectively dealing with email, handling
interruptions, and getting clear on priorities is the way to make space for
what's important to us.
I encourage women to allow the possibility that it can be done differently.
That their intuition isn't just an inner sense that pops up every once in a
while, it's an essential ingredient for creating the world we've dreamed
These hint at the values of the Natural Professional, values we don't get from
the mainstream workforce… yet.
6. Why is it so important for women to
participate in an event like the Passion into Action Conference?
Making dreams come true in this
world can be really tough! What better way to support and be supported,
celebrate our journey, and remember that we are working towards common dreams
than to get together with this same intention? Big kudos to See Jane Do for
planting the seed and holding the space for this event. The energies of every
single participant, from attendees to speakers to organizers, will nourish this
vision to bloom.
7. What are you hoping will be the
biggest take-away for women at the Passion into Action Conference?
My desire is for women to give
themselves permission to sing their song a little bit (or a lot!) louder.
Whether an idea is sparked, a relationship developed, or determination
solidified, may each and every woman gather what she needs to take the next
step on her journey.
8. What is your message to women around
Give yourself permission to follow
your dreams!! Big steps, small steps, hops, crawls, and jumps--all are good,
just keep moving. The world will be richer for it. No need to wait until it's
perfect. Now is the right time. Dream. Do. Be.
