An Unscripted Evening With Lael

An Unscripted Evening is essentially my version of a revival for heretics, misfits, rabble rousers and mavericks. It’s also a safe space for road-weary travelers to catch their breath, fill their cup, and be among kindred spirts.

It’s a warm campfire for those who find themselves in the land of misfit toys, and it’s fueled by my heart fire and powered by the work I do nationally with women like you.

Part storytelling, part improv, and part soul reveal, it’s simply me up there—doing my thing in a way that’s unplugged, unscripted, and unapologetic. Why? Because I know I’m not alone.

But I work with enough women to know that so many of us think we are. Alone.

Real and raw, humorous and gritty, thoughtful and irreverent, this heart-centered event is designed to both illuminate and inspire bravehearts like you who are interested in expanding into more of who they are so they can show up in the world bigger, bolder and without apology.

If you are a fan of SheSpeaks, my annual and ever-popular evening of women’s storytelling, then this one’s for you. From me with love. It was born out of that event, as a result of me having to leave so much of my own story pieces on the cutting room floor so to make way for the five other women that join me on stage those evenings.

“It was such a relief to find emotional respite in a sanctuary buzzing with Lael’s magnetic mojo. Lael is a masterful storyteller, and she weaves her magic in mysterious – and hilarious ways. I laughed out loud for 90 minutes. I’m pretty sure I heard a snort.”

This Unscripted Evening is the place I bring it all and bring it in—the stuff I’ve got, as I’ve got it, unencumbered by time, and liberally sprinkled with humor and heart. This is the place I cut loose, let the stories flow and fly with wild abandon, and weave all manner of topics together that I’ve been playing with in my own work as well as my clients. This is the place, I shine a bright light on the many hot and juicy topics that feel particularly relevant and personal to women right now.

No script, no rehearsal, no pretty preparation or fancy pomp + circumstance  just a bunch of heartfelt intentions, heaping handfuls of resources and ideas, and loads of luminous threads woven together publicly in one 90-minute evening. part book reading (not necessarily my own), this evening is me at my most real and authentic self.

The sole intention of this evening is to create resonance — offering food for thought, frameworks of understanding, and rocket fuel energy to inspire you to honor, move, and act upon what it is you are being called to do and be in the world.

So if you’re feeling stuck, wondering if you’re crazy, or feeling alone….this evening is for you. Join me for 90-minutes and discover that you are none of those things…and instead are a revolutionary thinker simply having a very human moment.

Storytelling + Food for Thought + Space to Reflect 

“It was a captivating swirl of spoken words and relatable moments, garnished with humor and grace and human-ness, and punctuated with profanity. Just the way I like it.”

You know what’s at the core of this evening?


Freedom from self-limiting beliefs that keep us small, explanations and disclaimers that water us down, hesitancy and second-guessing that hold us back, expectations that aren’t our own, old stories we continue to play out, judgement and jealousy that keep us disconnected, lies we tell ourselves to stay put, stereotypes that have us settle, wasted energy that drains our spirits, and apologies that diminish who we are and what we desire.

You can show up to this evening just as you are — no need to have read my book, know my work, or even know me. Nothing to think about or do in advance — you’ll have everything you need just by deciding to show up.

“I left feeling endlessly lighter than when I walked in because I purged 20 pounds of emotional bullshit in that wooden church pew – just from 90 minutes of laughing and relating and being present in that moment. It was worth every ounce of energy it took to get my introverted ass off my couch.”

Please note: This event is not limited to women – all are welcome. Also there will most likely be some swearing, so heads up for sensitive or little ears! 

You with me? You want in?
