Welcome To Lauren Ash!

Good morning, loves. I hope today is meeting you well. 

Welcome to my new monthly musing, Written By Herself where I share my monthly musings, reflections, interesting links, and my upcoming events. Sent right to your inbox. 

I’m grateful for the launch of my new website and personal lifestyle brand. Check it out! (Shoutout to James T. Green for his incredible support in manifesting the vision I had in my head and bringing it to life!) On my new website, you’ll find the following:

The scoop on my new quarterly consultations for a purpose-driven life—The Soul Sessions. I’ve opened registration for my first one on Sunday, June 26th and am offering a 10% off rate to those of you on my e-mail list. Use the code WRITTENBYME to score it.  

Sound Sessions—free, guided audio meditations made in collaboration with two, amazing souls: Calid B. and Peter Espenson. Find calm during your day, and be sure to share with a friend! I'd love your feedback on my first meditation. E-mail me back or tweet me.

What I’m interested in working on in the immediate future—from speaking at conferences to joining your awesome wellness retreat, you, or someone else, can contact me there accordingly.

My Press Kit—check out where I’ve been featured lately, and where my work has been published. I’m especially digging my recent radio conversation with AirGo radio! Did you catch it?

What’s this monthly musing all about? I believe that my life is led by God and written by myself. All of us, upon finding our purpose, are given a huge task: to follow through with actualizing our greatest potential. Through these monthly musings, you'll find my reflections related to my experiences as a creative entrepreneur, woman of color, trying to maintain a healthy, balanced, thriving life. If you're into all of this, stay subscribed.

Before I forget
I'm a busybee this month. Catch me at the following events:

Wellness + Self-Care Talk with Forth Chicago
I'm talking all things holistic wellness with the amazing Forth Chicago ladies this Thursday, May 19th from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at Workshop Chicago. Lucky me: I get to guide everyone who attends in a meditation to kick things off! More info here

Blavity's Empower Her Conference
This Saturday, May 21st I'll be speaking in NYC about self-care from the inside out alongside Francheska of Hey Fran Hey, Gabi of Gabi Fresh, and Ofunne Amaka of Cocoa Swatches. Join me!

Create Space: Black Girl In Om Mini Retreat
Most of you know that I'm the Founder and Creative Director of Black Girl In Om: I'm thrilled to launch our mini-retreat series with our very first retreat in Chicago on Saturday, May 28th! We're offering a special early-bird rate of just $100, so please share about this day of wellness with women of color whom you think would be interested and invested in taking time for self-care and self-love with the BGIO community! More info here.

That's all, for now. As always: be well.
