Love & Authenticity

Author of “Never Without Love” presents

Love & Authenticity

A gathering for women

at the Burrowing Owl Winery

We can’t love authentically without being authentic—love and authenticity coexists!

Inauthenticity does not mean telling outright lies but rather is about not saying or acting on the truths we’ve been conditioned to withhold. Inauthenticity arises from our attachment to being loved and respected.

Often, my clients are not aware that they don’t hear their own truths—to hear and feel what is essential to feel joy, to feel content and to be motivated. Like them, I spent most of my adult life abandoning my authentic-self, abandoning my dreams.

 “Authenticity can heal trauma!”

by Gabor Maté, MD


At the Love & Authenticity gathering you will be guided through breath work and contemplation to grasp how freeing it feels when you connect to your authentic self!

For more than a decade Mehrnaz Massoudi has helped people remove emotional blocks and limiting beliefs to create clarity, to experience contentment and joy and feel motivated to move towards their goals and dreams.

She is the author of Never Without Love. Her forthcoming book, The Namaste Way, will be published in the Fall of 2023.

Mehrnaz studied meditation with Deepak Chopra, Jack Kornfield, and Tara Brach.

This is a small interactive gathering holding space for every attendee to participate in our share and chat.

“Listening to our own voices is the doorway to Empowerment.

Empowerment comes from abundance. But women often give from an empty tank.”

Mia Harris, Transformative Voice Coach


When we start to unlock ourselves, body movement is linear. But in the process of embracing empowerment, it becomes fluid. That fluidity is powerful!

Tap into the Vast Space of Creativity

Managing Stress with Mehrnaz gives writers tools to enhance creativity and improve productivity.

Not every author can spend a year’s sabbatical by the Mediterranean while writing their manuscript! Day-to-day stress – not to mention deadlines – can affect creative performance by triggering limiting beliefs and patterns.  But creating a space of emotional freedom can manage or mitigate those beliefs and patterns so we can tap into our creative essence.


Based on more than a decade’s research and application through one-on-one coaching with clients and in workshops, this 50-minute session will focus on stress-management techniques that include Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT – or “tapping”), breath work and visualization. By the end of the workshop participants will have learned pragmatic and effective tools to help them access creativity and improve productivity.

Date: September 24, 2022

Tickets are available at  Wine Country Writers’ Festival
