What do you really, really, really want?

The Bigger Yes is a program designed to claim, honor, and devote yourself to your soul's deepest callings. Together, we will clarify your Bigger Yes, explore your truth, align your focus, stoke your faith and courage, and develop a practice of devotion.

This program is for anyone who wishes to live in deeper alignment to their center, to the place that is, as I call it, the "diamond in the center of your chest."

I created this course because I believe it is not only a joy and a privilege, but also a deep responsibility, to live into our potential.

If you could see even a fraction of what's possible for you, you would fall to your knees and cry.

I truly believe this. It's been my experience, and I've poured everything I've learned about how to get there into this course.

From getting sober from alcohol, changing careers mid-life, publishing my first book, founding TLC, and most importantly, becoming a woman who lives in integrity, I am here to share what I know.

This course is a blend of practical tools, spiritual wisdom, psychology, neuroscience, and good old-fashioned self-inquiry. The good news? Anyone can do it. You just need to be open, willing, and ready to engage.

What we'll cover

This is not a cruise-control course. You should expect to go deep! The more energy and heart you're willing to invest, the more you will receive in reward.

Course Curriculum

Week 1: Faith

Faith will be the foundation of our work. We will explore what it means to have faith, to believe in ourselves and a benevolent universe, and how to establish a faith practice.

Week 2: Truth

To move forward, we must understand where we are. This week will focus on clarifying our core truths: about our lives today, our circumstances, and where we want to go.

Week 3: Clarity

Building from your truth, this week we find clarity around your desires, including defining your Bigger Yes.

Week 4: Alignment

Orienting toward a new destination requires shifts, big and small. In this module, we will discuss what it means to align to our truth, how it actually looks in real life, and how we remain resilient through the journey.

Week 5: Devotion

Bringing our Bigger Yes to life requires a dance with the Divine. A dance of surrender, patience, effort, and devotion. In the closing week, we will talk about devotion as a practice, a labor of love, and an offering.

Week 6: Integration

In our final week together, we will come full circle and integrate the lessons and experiences of the course.

What others are saying...

The Bigger Yes was one of the best gifts I've ever given myself. The course pushed me to reconnect with my true nature and helped me see what is most important to me right now, while allowing me to dream big and move toward the bigger picture as well.

Eric - 'The Bigger Yes' Course Student

I loved it. It changed my life.

Leah - 'The Bigger Yes' Course Student

To say Laura gets it, would be a vast understatement. She has made it her life’s work to really get it, and to really care if other people are able to live better lives alongside her.

Jodi - 'The Bigger Yes' Course Student

I had been questioning my life’s work and purpose for a couple of years, and this course gently guided me to remember who I am at my core, what I am here to do, and that it is enough. It was a lovely experience.

Tyler - 'The Bigger Yes' Course Student

The Bigger Yes helped me dig deeper and get out of that part of my brain that keeps me stuck, to look beyond my own outdated messages of what I’m ‘supposed’ to do and who I’m ‘supposed’ to be.

Jessie - 'The Bigger Yes' Course Student

This course taught me more about myself than my $100,000 masters level education ever could.
