Here’s How The Oasis Supports You:

I created The Oasis to support creative souls by providing weekly focus sessions, targeted resources, and feminist-informed mindfulness tools, to help you get out of your own way and continually make human-scaled progress towards your (sometimes secret) dreams and desires.

We keep it simple, do-able, and fun — just enough to keep you inspired, fueled, and supported the way that serves you best.

While staying completely and utterly out of any sort of self-improvement “I’m not good enough” trap.

And as far away as humanly possible from any “live, love, laugh” best life slogan bull and even farther away from hustle culture toxic productivity.

Each week, I deliver a curated collection of resources to help you…

Take Consistent Action on What You Care About
Stay Focused even when Life Gets Crazy
Be More Compassionate with Amazing Self

Celebrate the Creative Being You Are so You Can Thrive — NO MATTER WHAT!

Creativity is a practice, heck, life is a practice, and The Oasis provides a flexible, easy, and fun reminder to bring your creativity, your desires, and yourself to the forefront of your life so you can make progress on the creative goals and dreams you’ve been hiding.

Creating the life you want is the most important and the most difficult work that adults do and we don’t have a lot of pointers or support to do it. It’s as if we are supposed to somehow magically know how to live with purpose and integrity, and overcome our fears to get out of our way.

Borrow my feisty spirit to get your scary sh*t down, where you chill and regroup to remember your essential goodness, and where you live the question what’s most important to me?

The Oasis is one of the best support structures I have ever invested in… It helps me to complete projects as opposed to leaving them half done. The community is one of lively, interested, authentic women who are an inspiration.

Pam Bustin

Because of the Oasis I am more clear on my goals and those goals are more realistic – more scaled to this one, lovely, human-sized life I am living. Because of the Oasis I dance more, smile more, and love this sweet body I live in. Because of the Oasis, I feel a new sense of belonging – not only to this wonderful bunch of humans, but also out in the world.

The Oasis Is Created for YOU.

Whether you’re writing a symphony, writing a poem, or writing a grocery list… you ARE a creative. Our most basic desire is to create, to express the life force bubbling in us, and when we embrace and nurture that desire, the juice and joy spills over into every area of our lives!

Unfortunately, our Western patriarchal culture imposes so many expectations and rules on us that we can forget our desire to create, to make a life we love. The Oasis exists for one simple reason — To help remind you of your innate birthright: To love, to grow, to create, to LIVE.

And always to begin again when you forget. With supreme self-compassion.

Coming back to ourselves and what we want doesn’t take have to take hard work, intensive therapy, or month-long silent yoga retreats (although you certainly can go that route if it thrills you!). Instead, a series of gentle reminders and practices will help inspire you to tap into the creator in you, leading to tiny shifts that can, over time, result in significant changes.

I’d love to help you create the life you want, the work you want, the contribution you want, to create a life of purpose, meaning, and focus, week after week.

I’d love to help you go from “why bother?” to “hell yes?”

Love,
Jen

Spending time every week at the Oasis grounds me. I am totally, completely with myself, exactly as I am. And I am not alone. Feeling accompanied and supported by Jen brings me tremendous peace and comfort. Choosing to join the Oasis, for me, was not about accomplishing a goal or project. It was about choosing to make my self-care a priority. I am so very, very grateful.

Because of the Oasis, …I spend less time freaking out about everything I want to do and all the reasons I’m not doing it. …Jen’s smart and gentle prompts help me pin down the corners of my tent, to create a shape and shelter in which to dream and from which to begin to accomplish. It’s a challenge, a pleasure, a support and guide.

Christine Webb

I heard about the Oasis at a time of major life change. I had recently retired and felt adrift. [Now] I feel stronger, more self-aware, more at peace; I notice that I am kinder to myself and others, and I feel hopeful about being able to create and feel more confident that I can contribute something authentic and meaningful to life, to my community. …What an adventure this has been, and more to come!

I have been a member of the Oasis for a few years now and I LOVE it. I love the meditations and the encouragement you give ‘to keep showing up for ourselves’ and all your juicy ideas and tools… I’m always struck by the perfect timing of when I listen to your calls. They are always EXACTLY what I need to hear or work on that day! Thank you!

The Oasis offers me a mini retreat from the comfort of my own home, that I can listen to at a time that’s convenient for me. It provides a space for me to simply be with myself – to touch in with what’s real for me in this moment, to connect with what’s stirring inside wanting to be brought to life, where I want to put my energy, and what’s realistic given the life that is happening for me right now.

Jen, it’s hard to put into words the benefit of working with you in the Oasis. There is a profound difference between the OHMYGODIHAVESO MUCHTODOINSOLITTLETIME approach from last year and the experience I just had with my work in Nepal … it all felt so easy and natural and flowing!

FAQs

Q: What is The Oasis?

A. The Oasis is an online subscription that provides weekly practices, exercises, reminders, and resources to support your creative life journey. You’ll get a carefully curated collection of audios, videos, and other tools, plus access to our non-Facebook community. Personal coaching, guest lectures, and surprises are all part of your membership!

Q. How much time is this going to take?

A. It’s 100% up to you. The weekly audios are downloadable so you’re never rushed, and never behind.

Some members listen on their lunch hour or in bed Saturday morning with their coffee. Some members listen out on a walk or in the tub. Some members dip in and out of the content as their time and desire allow.

The Oasis is designed to be super flexible and useful, and to help you live the creative, desire-filled life you want, all in the spirit of self-kindness and lightness!

Q: What if I can’t finish all of the content each month?

A: It will be there waiting for you! You can go back to any audio, video, or group coaching when YOU want. Let your desires guide you!

Q: How is the Oasis Membership delivered?

A: We use an easy-to-navigate beautiful online platform where all your audios and videos live, ready to be accessed any time. Every Friday morning, you’ll receive an email with a link to that week’s content. Our live group experiences take place on Zoom.

Q. What if I want to cancel my membership?

A: If you decide the Oasis is not right for you, you can cancel your subscription at any time and you won’t be billed for the following month. We do not offer refunds.

Please note that unless canceled, subscriptions will renew at the normal price of $39 per month.

Q. “I’m decidedly not New Age – will this be?”

A. No! You will never hear me say, “The Universe wanted me to…” Instead, I rely on science-based, well-researched practices, love precise and inspiring language, and share tools that are time-tested and work. That said, I’m an unabashedly wonder-struck gal so expect talk of gratitude, love, life living you, desire desiring you, I use lots of poetry, and I am totally goofy “wow, isn’t life amazing!” person and a complete optimist.

Q. “I’m also decidedly not a woman. Am I allowed to join?”

A. The Oasis is mostly populated with women. However, it’s not exclusive to women – all genders and gender identifications are open-heartedly welcome. I believe that EVERYONE can benefit from what The Oasis has to offer. Who doesn’t need more time to step back from the craziness of life and listen long enough to hear what your heart desires? That’s a human need. So this is NOT a women’s-only club.

We are a community of diverse individuals of all backgrounds, religions, races, orientations, geographic locations, and personalities. You’ll be welcomed just as you are!

Q. “What if I have a question you didn’t answer?”

A. Please email my little team at jen@jenniferlouden.com and put Oasis Question in the subject line so we don’t miss it.

The Oasis IS an oasis… a place to rest, refuel, and connect with other like-minded souls on the creative journey. Each week I look forward to the weekly audio as a way to begin my week with intention and clarity, and I love all the incredibly helpful resources Jen makes available to support us (co-working calls, guest expert calls, etc.) each month. It’s one of the few places I look forward to hanging out online every week!

I had followed Jennifer for several years and decided to joined Oasis last September. I love Jen’s direct style, inspiring tone, and fun attitude. Jen’s emails, weekly recordings, monthly events, and Oasis community helped me get through many challenges in 2020. Thank you, Jen!

I’ve been an Oasis member for years, now, and find it to be one of the single most important things I do for my creative life. At the Oasis I’m surrounded by creative, brave, imperfect people who love the process of becoming, and doing, their art. Jen supports us in learning how to choose – how to decide – how to prioritize – how to let go – how to hold both – and how to begin again. Even better? She learns with us, in this space, and creates a true community.

I joined Oasis because I was curious: would this help with anything? Would it make a difference in my creative life, my work life, my life-life? I’ve stayed (almost 5 years, as I type this) because the answer was and is a resounding “Yes!” Oasis is equal parts encouragement, invitation, and inspiration, grounded in solid research and Jen Louden’s astute observations about humans and how we inhabit the world. I tuck in every week (with the occasional missed-without-guilt week because there is, as Jen reminds us, “no behind” in Oasis), discovering and re-discovering practical, compassionate, and effective ways to stay true to my own creative work, my work as a writing coach, my family, and my self.

I find that one of the most powerful benefits of being a member of the Oasis is that it “makes a place” for ME–as someone who is often dedicated to creating space for others to grow and who is devoted to generating resources to share and distribute to other people, it feels like a deep sigh of relief to “step into” a place in which I can be nourished and refueled too.

— Molly Remer

Ren Powell

It feels like how I imagine participating in an old quilting bee would have felt like: an active, “creating” community. There are words of wisdom (without capital letters), half-embarrassing revelations, and supportive conversations. I’m continually reminded of what it is to be a real human being who trips up, gets up and begins again.

— Ren Powell

Sara Johnson-Cardona

I joined the weekly oasis in March 2020 and it has been so incredibly grounding and supportive throughout this entire pandemic. I look forward to the Friday audios every week, and I find doing them so nourishing and replenishing. So often there is something from the audios that really sticks with me throughout the whole week and beyond. They also just help me know that I’m not alone. I also love the Monday videos, and just generally love Jen’s style!! The online community is so wonderful also, and I have had a lot of fun at the co-working sessions. Basically it is all so amazing and the amount that you get is truly incredible and all so nourishing. I can’t recommend it enough!
