The Search for Self was created to give women a safe and private space to reconnect with themselves.

After five years of soul searching, the creator [Lainie Holmes] started wondering if other women out there were feeling a little lost too. Who am I? (outside of my work) What do I actually want? Am I enjoying my life? Is this the life I’m supposed to live…

Lainie’s questions led to a five year exploration of getting to know herself and unpacking her baggage – while in the middle of a home reno, raising three little ones under the age of 3, teaching online courses, and trying to figure out what the hell she was going to do with her life. It was a scary and unsettling time.

But it led to beautiful things. Learning to slow down. Gaining new perspective of past experiences and letting go of big things. Learning to trust and listen to her heart. Mending relationships and feeling more grounded than ever.

And not everyone has the luxury of that time – to read 30+ books on personal growth, wellness, and spirituality; to listen to endless podcasts and experiment with different processes. Your life is beyond busy. Between work and keeping kids alive and fed, spending time to delve into you is last on the list. But we’re going to change that.

Lainie has come up with a do-able way for you to do some self-exploration. She wants you to take care of yourself. So she is going through every book she’s read and pulling out the best parts for you. She’s reading every notebook filled with writing so she can remember the pieces that helped her along the way. Enough of the mom guilt and taking care of everyone but yourself. You can only do that for so long without feeling burnt out and resentful, and that’s not good for anyone. Let’s take care of you too.

A collection of these pieces will be shared with you each month. And to be transparent, these materials will eventually make their way into a published book that Lainie is currently working on (so materials are owned by The Search for Self). Isn’t that cool?! You get a peek at some of the pieces inside before anyone else does…

  • benefit from and use the information now; why wait for 2-3 years for the book to come out?
  • feel the support of community. There is a whole group of women out there on personal searches too. You’ll have a chance to meet them.
  • say what made a difference for you and the pieces you found useful. This book will be made better for other women because of you.

The Search for Self is a way to move inward and find answers for yourself.
