Being present for your children in these years when you’re raising them is your highest priority. But you’re also committed to making a positive impact in the world, something that feels even more important with all the challenges we currently face.
Often, you feel like you have to choose between being a mom and doing the passionate, purposeful work you feel called to do.
And, in the midst of this juggle, investing in yourself and your relationships often gets lost entirely.
But, you’re ready to change the paradigm…to live a life where you are the author of your story, where you can design a life around engaged parenting (E), purposeful work (P), investing in yourself (I), and connecting (C) to a strong support network.
At Mother’s Quest, we call this living your E.P.I.C. Life and we know that when we do this, our children learn through our example, and we show up as even more powerful mothers.
To be clear, we’re not talking about a perfect life, a “balanced” life, or someone else’s version of an E.P.I.C. life… we’re talking about a life filled with the things that matter most to YOU.
And one where when things feel out of alignment (which you can expect they will!) you give yourself the grace and space to notice and shift things back to what you really want.
If you’re on a quest to live an E.P.I.C. life, but you’ve been feeling unsure of the path ahead, the Mother’s Quest Spark Your Epic Life Group Coaching Series may be the source of connection you’re looking for.
The Mother’s Quest Spark Your Epic Life Group Coaching Series can provide inspiration, coaching and community for you if you are ready to say “yes” to:
- Reflect together, in a community of like-minded mothers, on what matters most
- To consciously live a more E.P.I.C. life
- To take bold action toward one of the E.P.I.C. life guideposts before the end of the program
Mother’s Quest Founder, Julie Neale, honors both the magic and the mess of parenthood and believes our children challenge us to grow into our best selves. She is on a mission to live a truly E.P.I.C. life and, through her example, inspire her children to do the same.
After a 20-year career as a leader in youth-serving non-profit organizations, Julie turned her focus to coaching, training at the Coaches Training Institute, and facilitating a process known as “reflection” for youth development professionals.
Through this and her parenting experience, she realized that mothers need an opportunity to reflect on their own growth, dreams, and plans and created Mother’s Quest to champion them.
Julie Neale led Adult Reflection circles at the school I was leading for years. The beautiful way in which she held space for our teachers to practice open and direct communication, curiosity and care for each other was transformative for my staff. Julie brings a brilliant mixture of belief in people, and the ability to delve into uncomfortable yet deep waters to her work with teams. She is not afraid to ask hard questions and be vulnerable with herself. The way she models the practices of adult reflection gives others the courage and wisdom to do the same. I have been so grateful for her steady, thoughtful and always prepared hands!
We will meet for four consecutive Sundays in a transformative process that will include:
- A commitment to defining a vision and goals for an E.P.I.C. life and taking one bold, significant step for one of the guide-posts before the last session
- Four one hour 15 minute virtual group sessions that will include opportunities to share and some hot-seat coaching
- Meetings will be Sundays at 3 pm PST – May 24th, May 31st, June 7th, and June 14th
- Opportunity to learn and practice foundational E.P.I.C. life/coaching skills that you can incorporate into your work and life
- Assignments in between including optional accountability partners to help you stay on track
- A Private Facebook Group for ongoing discussion
**Participants will be encouraged to access the resources available through Mother’s Quest including the MQ Facebook group and the Podcast.**
Each session follows a consistent process that includes:
- Introduction of that session’s theme/concept
- Review of an E.P.I.C. life skill training focus (listening, empowering questions, requests/accountability, acknowledgment)
- Grounding prompt for check-in
- Facilitation of Primary Content for that Session
- Open space for voluntary sharing/hot-seat coaching
- Time to write down personal take-aways

Given the times that we are in, and an increasing commitment we have to make sure that Mother’s Quest Coaching programs are financially accessible, we decided to adopt Mark Silver’s “Pay from the Heart” approach for the Group Coaching Series.
Put simply, Pay From The Heart means you check in with your heart and arrive at a payment that feels right to you.
We hope that you can arrive at a number that allows you to feel invested in this commitment, and may be a little bit of a stretch, without being a strain, and that also values Mother’s Quest and helps us sustain the work we do in the world.
We decided, from the heart, to set the minimum price at $90.
The more sustainable price for each participant is $126.
The price that helps us thrive? $162.
This price also helps support those who need to pay less than the $90 minimum.
You can pay less than $90. If you are in a situation where spending $90 is not feasible and you are committed to participating fully, you are invited with an open heart to choose an amount lower than our minimum. We are serious about welcoming you.
How it works.
First decide if you are going to join us. Check in to see if this experience really calls to you right now and if you have the ability to make the commitment to the process.
Then, if you decide “Yes,” make a decision of how much. Connect to the reality of your financial situation and to your heart to find a number that feels right. We trust you will make an aligned decision, and we welcome you!
NOTE: This series is open to all MQ coaching or circle alums and will also be available to YOU, If you register, any time I offer this series again, at no additional charge.
What a gift it has been to have Julie’s brilliant mind and compassionate heart helping me bring my best self into my life as a mother, professional, and community builder. Whether coaching me one-on-one or holding space in a reflection circle, Julie’s warm, positive, non-judgmental approach, combined with her purposeful questions and suggestions, have been instrumental in bringing more intentionality into my life.

What results will I expect from this experience?
The experience will help you feel more clear and connected to the life you want to live and have you taking purposeful action to make it come true. You’ll leave with a vision for the future you want to create, clear priorities across the E.P.I.C. guideposts, and one bold action step that you’ll at least take steps toward implementing before the session is over.
You’ll also have an opportunity to reflect on lessons learned along the way. In the process, you’ll build meaningful relationships with like-minded mothers.
What if I can’t make a session?
All sessions will be recorded so if you can’t make a session, you can watch later on your own time. We do believe it’s best to be with the group “live” and encourage you to block the session times off on your calendar now to give yourself the best chance of attending live.
Is it possible to add-on individual coaching with Julie to deepen the experience?
Yes! If you have a desire to go deeper and the ability to pay for one-on-one coaching sessions with Julie during the four-series experience, please add an additional $180, $216, or $252 per session to your total, again choosing a number that feels right for you. Note: there are a limited number of these one-on-one coaching spots.
