THE SANCTUARY

Transform Your Relationship to Money, Power and Health
and Advance Your Leadership

4-month transformational small group coaching and mastermind (Max. 10 spaces)

Transformation means radically shifting what you think and do.

So you've done all the leadership trainings but still don't feel as powerful, healthy or wealthy as you know you could? Time for The Sanctuary.

  • You have a track record of success and have broken many glass ceilings but it has come at a cost to your health and relationships.

  • You've superseded the accomplishments of previous generations in your family but you're not sure what the deeper purpose is anymore.

  • You've established a level of material security and a professional reputation but financial uncertainty still holds you back from taking risks towards your bigger vision.​

As a result, you've become the go-to person to get things done but there's always something in the way of what you truly want to do and caring for your health and relationships.
 

  • You're split between too many responsibilities and neglect your wellbeing.

  • You feel overworked and underappreciated (or too appreciated!)

  • You do more than your fair share for the team (your bosses know they can count on you...although you might feel uninspired by them or feel disempowered from doing things your way...)

  • Power dynamics, influence and relationship struggles feel confusing more often than you'd like

  • It's hard to carve out the time and energy to honour your personal needs or marshall your money and resources to invest in your bigger dream

 

You've tried to shift things for yourself and been on great leadership or coaching programmes. But something still gets in the way. You know it's time for a deeper change. You want to get more specific and make profound but practical progress in the areas of health, money and power.

What can you do? Let's start where you are then advance.

 

You don't need to light yourself on fire to keep others warm.

From Success Trap to Sanctuary

The Success Trap: when your past or current success gets in the way of your future success, with reinforcement from the system.

If you feel stuck in a loop, it's time to step back, give yourself space and see what is getting in the way internally PLUS strategise better externally.

 

For professionals, it's often time to shift from an EMPLOYEE-EXPERT mindset (the Knowledgeable Servant) to an ENTREPRENEUR-LEADER mindset (the Wise Sovereign) and let go of limiting beliefs about money, power and health. 

 

With this shift, you break free of the Success Trap and create a Transformational Sanctuary in your life, embodying its meaning internally and creating it externally for yourself and others in whatever form is unique to you. You'll experience a step shift in your leadership ROI (Ripple of Impact) that will be felt by you and those around you.

Change starts with first taking space for YOU  - creating Sanctuary for yourself.

Hi,
I'm Amina

I'm a cross between Tony Robbins and a Buddhist nun: I'm deeply spiritual, energetic, highly rational with a good sense of humour and a detective's intuition. I care deeply about my clients and my work.

Over a 15-year career as a doctor, scientist and population health specialist, I've worked in hospitals, a war zone, a pandemic and with the United Nations. Since 2016, I've worked in my own coaching and consulting business working with talented professionals and leaders who want to create an inspiring career and live with more confidence and ease while making a difference. They include doctors, directors in finance and services working on global challenges like sustainability and ESG.

In 2020, published an Award-Winning book called The Success Trap: Why Good People Stay in Jobs They Don't Like and How to Break Free. My bigger vision is to help more people reconnect to their deeper self, live fulfiling lives and make their highest contribution to the world. I've had a deep meditation practice for years and invested significantly in my personal development working with the best in the field. If you want to learn from my liberation journey, avoid the mistakes I made and are committed to growing your impact sustainably while contributing your own wisdom to your world and do it with an incredible group, this is the coaching process for you.

What makes the Sanctuary Different? A Transformational approach to leadership and wellbeing. 

Transform, Don't Just Inform: Research by McKinsey and others shows that the majority of leadership coaching programmes fail and that's because they focus too much on information and 'training'. Unlike traditional programs, The Sanctuary centres profound personal transformation, not just information and skills training. In a world where 54% of women leaders face burnout, it offers a new paradigm in leadership coaching in alignment with a rapidly changing work environment. Your experience at The Sanctuary includes:

 

  • Innovative Tools for Change: Experience a unique blend of cognitive, somatic and spiritual coaching tools, backed by evidence-based research. Dive deep into personal transformation, coupled with pragmatic leadership strategies.

 

  • Global Dialogue, Personal Impact: Engage in enriching conversations at the intersection of individual change and the systemic challenges of the 21st century.

 

  • Provocative Leadership Insights: Explore critical topics in leadership and personal development like influence and negotiation through a personal and systemic lens, especially related to money, power and health.

 

  • Expert Guidance: Be guided by a coach with an exceptional background as a doctor, academic, and UN policy advisor. Benefit from years of experience in liberational personal and leadership coaching since 2016.

 

  • A Community of Changemakers: Join a curated, intimate group of service-driven leaders. Together, you'll form a powerful support network, acting as each other's Board of Advisors and Sanctuary Councillors.

Most importantly, The Sanctuary is a place where The Sacred meets the Strategic, where Intuition meets Intellect and where the Mind meets the Body in Awareness.

 

Over 4 transformative months, The Sanctuary will challenge and support you like never before, redefining your relationship with leadership, money, and power. Are you ready to embark on this life-changing journey?"

Trust your intuition. If you're drawn to this programme, go for it. Amina is highly competent, very professional, and able to create a unique space. I am very experienced in working with coaches and am trained as one myself - and I have seldomly experienced such respectful and effective work

The method: Embark on a Journey of Transformation with the power of Soulmaking Coaching:

​Soulmaking Coaching is a groundbreaking approach to how you understand yourself and re-create your world. It cultivates 3 qualities: a) PRESENCE (being in the moment = Being), b) POWER (releasing beliefs that hold you back = Becoming) and c) POSSIBILITY (turning uncertainty into opportunity = Doing) that advance your leadership. Soulmaking expands your awareness and transforms any area of your life (whether money, power or health) using insight, imagination, emotions and action. At the Sanctuary, you'll develop the 6 practices of the Soulmaking Cycle:

     1) RELAX  - Drop into presence and reenergise. Release anxiety and emanate calm authority even amid chaos.

     2) REFLECT  Identify the patterns that get in your way. Ask powerful questions that shift your perspective.

     3) RELEASE  Let go of blocks that have been holding you back at a deep, subconscious level.

     4) RECONNECT  Tap into your "zone of genius" or soul level and redefine your vision, mission and values. 

     5) RESPOND  Turn uncertainty into opportunity. Engage with challenges and relationships from your true power.

     6) RECEIVE Learn to receive more and celebrate through patience and self-appreciation for exponential change.

 

Soulmaking Coaching emerged from extensive experience and training in insight meditation, integral coaching and transformative work with high achievers. It will enrich your journey for life.

Join our intimate group setting for deep coaching that will challenge and support you, transforming your mindset, unlocking new levels of power and enhancing your flow.

My time in the group has been nothing short of life-changing. I joined with some specific skills I wanted to achieve and quickly found so much more - purpose, vision and most importantly, joy.

I honestly experienced the best ten minutes of coaching of my life. Amina got to the root of a belief I held about myself, This made solving the challenges I had in the weeks to come so much easier. Amina guides, doesn’t push. Her method works precisely because it’s not about tips and tricks or rigid goal-setting.

Life felt like an uphill struggle with self-doubt and perfectionism constantly weighing me down. Amina's exceptional ability to help me slow down, be present and address root patterns enabled me to accelerate my journey to independence. I have more confidence, energy and time for my passions - I even started playing bass guitar!

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Posts 3.jpg
When do we start and how often do we meet?

We start officially on April 11th and then every two weeks on Thursdays (Apr 25th; May 9th; May 24th; Jun 6th; Jun 20th, Jul 4th, Jul 18th). The Bonus pre-calls are in Feb and March. All calls are at 6pm UK/1pm EST.

How many people will be in the group?

A maximum of 10 participants.

Can I reclaim the fee from my organisation?

Other members have put this towards their career development and leadership training and reclaimed it from their employers or company expenses. You can receive proof of payment and attendance on request.

Will there be a lot of homework?

This isn't about doing more but being more deeply as well as small, bold but fun experiments outside your comfort zone. Any coaching assignments will be based on what comes out of the conversations we have and that you choose to take on.

What do I need to know in advance and do I need previous coaching experience?

Previous experience in personal development or mindfulness is helpful but all you need is to be open to new experiences and ways of looking at things.

If I miss a group call, will I be able to catch up?

Yes, you’ll have access to recordings and you can have any questions answered in between calls by email. You'll have direct contact with me throughout the programme. I've got your back! 

How much time will I need outside the set calls?

You get what you put in. Change requires an investment of time and energy. You'll need 15-30 minutes a day of reflection time (e.g. through journalling or meditation).

Taking time to participate in the group between calls will pay off exponentially. And taking action in a new direction can take no time at all - just a moment of courage!

Will I get 1:1 coaching too?

You'll get a chance for direct coaching in the group calls. You also have access to monthly 1:1 private coaching as an option. If you sign up in November, you'll also have the Bonus Pre-Calls with me on November 30th and December 21st.

Join us on this unique, expansive 4-month journey to embrace
your extraordinary possibilities and make your authentic impact in the world.
