Breaking free from the old to embrace the new
Sarah Colon-Harris, Founder of the non-profit She Flew the Coop, is best known for her thought leadership, dynamic personality and compassion developed from years of interviewing people during their trials and triumphs as a TV journalist and producer. After years of listening to women at She Flew the Coop meetings, Sarah identified the 12 most common “mental coops” that keep women from joy and fulfillment, which inspired the UNCAGED program.
In this1-day workshop, Sarah and Molly Barker, Founder of Girls on the Run will lead part of the UNCAGED PROGRAM to share what they have collectively offered to thousands of women and girls — the skills and tools to open your mind and heart to the greatest possibilities for your life.
WHEN: SATURDAY, JUNE 18TH 9AM-4PM (1 HOUR BREAK FOR LUNCH, LUNCH IS NOT INCLUDED IN COST. )
LOCATION: THE LOCATION WILL BE ANNOUNCED (LIKELY IN CENTRAL CHARLOTTE)
The intention of this program is to help you break free from the self-limiting beliefs that keep us stuck in the same patterns. This 8-week program is designed to help you dive deep into your unconscious thoughts and awaken your authentic self that’s buried underneath. We’ll provide a space to process your thoughts and emotions coming out of quarantine and guide you to deep introspection. We want you to become the best version of yourself.
But wait? What will I get out of it?
This isn’t one of those programs to help you set goals. This is the inner work that needs to be done before goals are attempted. Our flock leaders will guide you through the 6 of the 12 “mental coops” that often keep us stuck – fear, expectations, shame, guilt, perfectionism, comparison, comfort, complacency, no-boundaries, people-pleasing, ego and pride. Without this work, you will likely come up against the same problems and even chase the wrong goals, jobs and/or relationships over and over again. In this workshop, we will focus on fear & expectations, no boundaries and people-pleasing and perfectionism & comparison.
Through guided introspective conversation and mindfulness, individuals will:
- Discuss and Identify the “mental coops” that often hold women back from actualizing their full potential
- Discover their inner dreams and desires
- Develop resilience and a courageous willingness to step into their authentic power
- Cultivate mental and emotional clarity through transition (job search, career move, break-up, business launch, empty nesting, moving, etc)
- Build relationships within a supportive community
- Deepen insight to see themselves and others more clearly
- Break free from unhealthy behavior patterns & soar
You’ll emerge from this transformative workshop with more self-awareness, confidence, gratitude and a better understanding of how to embrace what’s possible for you. Join the flock and gain community, connection, empowerment, hope, introspection, support, growth, tools, knowledge and a sense of belonging.

“The self-improvement, self-healing, and mindfulness work I am doing was definitely AMPLIFIED by UNCAGED. I did not expect it to be SOOO aligned with what I was needing in my life – perfect timing, community, and curriculum. I think the biggest breakthrough for me was the shame and guilt week. The close examination over how these coops continue to act as road blocks in my personal view of myself/my relationships really unlocked the deeper realizations on how I was giving my power away. The external shift included powerful no’s, yeses, and restoring boundaries with people I love and in my workplace. I have more energy, am experiencing more joy, and allowing myself to pursue the possibility of a different career path.” – G.K. Uncaged participant
“Our exercise on the mental coop shame was a huge breakthrough for me. I was holding onto so much from a previous job that was causing so much anxiety in my current life. It was clouding who I am as a person and my future self. After this session I was so much more free. I continue to feel lighter and definitely do not have the anxiety I once did about it. I really understand now how hard I was being on myself and how toxic the shame was on me in pursuing my future goals. I also now take daily assessments on what tasks or things that are upcoming I am avoiding and why (FEARS). I try to reflect on these and then prioritize them as things I would like to get done throughout the week. This has helped feel so much stronger and confident throughout my week.” – M.H., Uncaged Participant
“As a very new empty nester and primarily SAHM, I expected to find some clarity around going back to work, feel grounded about being an empty nester and really needed to get out of my rut, comfort zone and just get out more AND drive on the highway. Covid kinda knocked me sideways. My actual experience was more than I expected. I didn’t expect to come away wanting to go back to coaching (took a hiatus during covid while our son finished high school). Also didn’t expect to want to support clients around empty nesting. My feelings were raw so it wasn’t an area I really wanted to go near, until I finally got past this hump. I grieved hard at the end of August for about 36 hours and slowly moved forward. Uncaged was timed so perfectly, challenging me to keep moving forward.” M.C., Uncaged Participant
“”One of the biggest impacts for me was that I caught myself blaming others at work for not giving me more responsibilities or not giving me the recognition I felt I deserved. I realized that I needed to take ownership and make changes by looking within. Changing this mindset has made a big difference. I still get frustrated, but I’m working on it.” – Molly S., Coming thru Covid Participant
