Whether you’re a Team Leader, a Thought Leader or a CEO, we all experience moments of emotional overwhelm. Sadly, in these moments, we often abandon, numb or suppress vulnerable, valuable parts of ourselves, at the very moment when these parts of us are most desperately in need of our care.

In thinking about the different ways leaders can play with the practices of Being True, I asked the question: What do leaders really want to feel less of? The answer that emerged was: We want to feel less overwhelmed. And so, I developed a ‘bonus’ evidence-based self-fidelity practice to rescue yourself in moments of overwhelm.

This guide will show you how to rescue yourself in moments of overwhelm.

The more you apply this practices I share in the guide, the less time you’ll spend down in the murky, lonely depths of overwhelm with the qualities of your true nature out of your grasp.

Over time, you’ll cultivate greater confidence in your ability to stay afloat and to take good care of yourself (and all your different ‘parts’) in moments of overwhelm. More and more, you’ll begin to trust that you can get through challenging moments without having too numb or abandon parts of yourself.

“As leaders today, we all experience moments when it all just feels like too much. Cassandra teaches a simple yet powerful practice to rescue ourselves in moments of overwhelm. It’s precise yet gentle. It works. That’s why I call Cassandra the ‘overwhelm whisperer.”

“As someone who suffers from menopausal depression and gets overwhelmed easily these days, it can be easy to want to run away. You have reminded me how important it is to label and embrace my inner experiences. You helped me to realise I’d been lashing out at the negativity inside me, rather than an accepting it. Your practice has supported me to identify the part of my body where I’m feeling overwhelmed, acknowledge it, hug it – and breathe through it..”
