RISE & SHINE personal journey

Authentic confidence & Self expression for sensitive women

   Watch Promo   Enroll in Journey

* NEW* - By request the RISE & SHINE group coaching program is now available as an individual personal journey for those of you that prefer one-to-one interaction.

  • Are you a deep thinker?
  • Do you get hurt easily?
  • Do you feel other people's moods & emotions?
  • Does the world sometimes overwhelm you?

If you answer 'yes' to the questions above then you might be (highly) sensitive!

Which is wonderful and something to celebrate as it comes with many gifts (that are asking to be expressed!) but it can also come with some challenges.

Just like other sensitive women, you might:

  • keep yourself small and hide your true self from the world.
  • feel that you lack the power, energy and confidence to follow your dreams
  • hesitate to fully show up in your life.
  • feel like others somehow 'have what it takes' to really live their full potential and you don't.
  • even think sometimes that there is something wrong with you

Luckily nothing could be further from the truth, it is just that you, like a lot of sensitive women, lost touch with your own inner confidence and power when you were a sensitive little girl surrounded by a loud, sometimes harsh world, teaching you to retreat within and use all sorts of coping mechanisms to deal with the overwhelming world around you.

Some descriptions of these coping mechanisms by the sensitive women I have coached before are: playing the good girl, the perfect mum/daughter/friend etc, the supporter/carer of others, the nice girl, the yes-of-course no problem girl, the peacemaker, the blender-inner, the conformer, the nobody special etc.. These coping mechanisms lead to a disconnection from yourself and so to a disconnection from your inner power and confidence.

One other thing most of these sensitive women have in common is that they have a longing for MORE, more self-expression and more soul shining as deep down they KNOW that they have special gifts to share with the world.

Does this sound familiar? Then the RISE & SHINE - Authentic confidence & self expression coaching program for sensitive women has been created for you and I really hope that you will enroll yourself in your own personal, empowering RISE & SHINE journey !

Explore, RISE above, SHINE


During the 6 months, International Executive & Transformational coach and creator of this online program, San Silbernagl, who is a highly sensitive woman herself, will guide and coach you through the 3 stages of the RISE & SHINE transformational journey:


  • You will build your awareness of the unconscious self-limiting programs often experienced by sensitive women. You will experience a deep dive into the core of what is blocking you by exploring your unique personality type, doing self observations and working with metaphors to become aware of how this is playing out in your life. A very important stage as awareness is the key to any change!


  • You will shift your perception of who you are and embody a new way of being that is aligned with your Soul and your own authentic source of gentle power within. This part is magic, a bit like alchemy, I can't explain it, you will have to experience it for yourself.


  • You will shift from being directed by what you think others expect from you/need and start to follow yourself with confidence!
  • You will connect to the wisdom of your beautiful heart and learn to honor and express this in a conscious way
  • You will reclaim your voice and learn to express your Truth in a confident way
  • You will redesign your daily and weekly schedule and learn to take authentic action every day
  • You will connect with your gift(s) and make a vision and action plan of how to express them into the world
  • You will learn to create a life that fills you will gratitude every day.

This online coaching journey comes with a build-in support system so you won't be walking this journey alone, you will receive personal individual guidance & support from San via email & Whatsapp.

You also have the option to get extra coaching by adding monthly Skype coaching sessions to your journey.

Sounds like the perfect program for you but also a bit scary? Perfect, as all Soul Shining is found outside of your comfort zone!

"Rise & Shine has taught me the basics of being who I am and not being the person people want me to be.
The journey gave me a lot of confidence which I thought I didn't have at all or should I say "the confidence I thought I'd lost", everything we did had a positive impact in my life." - Marara


"San' has made an invaluable contribution to my life, one which I wish I had received earlier in life. She has a wealth of tangible resources, knowledge and advice which she presents in such a professional way. She shows incredible empathy, however this does not get in the way of calling out some challenging observations and suggesting some necessary changes. Wonderful to be ‘working’ with someone who really is good at what she does." - Gillian


‘San is a wonderful guide/mentor/sister who is clear in her process and very supportive along the journey as well. I found each module linked so well with the next. It was amazing how the course takes the most beautiful flow. I’ve learned to integrate very special things into my daily life through the practices we did. San offers the perfect tools to help you create the life you want instead of letting life ‘happen’ to you. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is looking deep within themselves for the answers, and would like a group of ’sisters’ to share it with’. - Lauren


'My journey with San truly helped me grow more into the more confident person who I wanted to be. I loved this coaching journey and would recommend it to anyone who wants to transform their lives and be the version of themselves they want to become" - Louise


"Dear San, Thank you for the change in my life you facilitated so masterfully. You helped me to get to know and love my true self and to lift the burden of false beliefs that had been preventing me from fulfilling my potential. You did it so professionally but also with great understanding and compassion.

I continue working on self-awareness and the more I advance on this path the more I understand the true meaning of the word "freedom". I know how much you love helping people to find themselves and wish you many more coaching success experiences. love, Gloria"


"San's coaching has made a huge impact on my life in a short period of time. The coaching has given me self-confidence, resilience and an ease with people that I had scarcely believed was possible. Furthermore, the new approaches I have learned have “stuck” and have become an integral part of my daily life. I am full of gratitude for San’s expert eye and her gentle guidance." - Bridget


"I must say, I am really enjoying this coaching journey so far. It has already has been opening so many doors - both internally and externally - both comfortable and uncomfortable - but all of it meaningful. Thank you for being my coach at this time." - Milena

I like to describe the experience of my coaching journey with San in the following keywords: powerful, constructive, involved and effective. San has a very pleasant personality and she listens carefully. Thanks to her involved guidance I have found the right tools. These tools work amazingly when I feel uncomfortable in a situation. THANK YOU!" - Carmen

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the Sisterhood coaching program start and finish?
Your Sisterhood coaching program is a 6-month coaching journey which will start on the day that you sign up. Even though it is a 6-month​ program, the journey never really ends. You will be able to keep on growing and learning using the materials in this course as long as we are using this platform.
What if I am unhappy with my purchase?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you actively participate in the journey and find that you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
How much time does the RISE & SHINE coaching journey require each week?
This is hard to say as it also depends on the time you have available, some Sisters really deep dive an spend hours and hours each week, doing extra readings and others spend about 2 hours each week. One is not necessary better than the other, the most important thing is that you consistently spend at least 2 hours each week on the program. The program is designed to fit in your life, you will be observing yourself and doing practices to practice new behavior while you are doing what you normally do in your life. .
Who is this journey for and who is it not for?
The RISE & SHINE coaching program is for sensitive women who are wanting to get in touch with their own inner confidence and strength, who want to stop holding themselves back and keeping themselves small. It is for sensitive women who want to step into themselves and shine their light brighter into this world by embracing their truth and showing up more authentically. It is not for women who are in crisis mode or have mental problems. San does coach people with mental illness and in crisis mode but only on a one to one basis as we do not feel that this online platform would be the right place for this work. So if you fit in the last category and feel you need support/coaching please contact San directly for individual sessions.
What will the outcomes of this journey be for me?
This coaching program is designed for you to over the span of 6 months become more confident and learn to express yourself more fully into your life. What this means for you and what that looks like will be explored in Module 1 where you get clear on your own personal outcomes and set your intentions for the program. The outcomes or results will depend on the effort you put into putting the content of this program into action. The program itself has proven itself over and over (literally 100's of times) as a great tool and process for transformation but with all coaching programs (online or in-person​) you get out what you put in! If you consistently work with the materials from this journey and participate actively we guarantee you that you will feel more empowered and confident to go and make your dreams come true!
What does San's personal guidance mean? Can I talk to her?
Yes San is available for individual check-ins via email and WhatsApp​ during your journey. Apart from the video messages in each module, she also actively responds to emails & WhatsApp you sent her. San loves her work, her dream is to empower as many women as possible to shine their light brightly into this world so she can't wait to connect with you and help you RISE & SHINE!
