Reconnect to your Essential Self

Is your life moving so fast that you ignore physical pain or your general well-being in order to simply get through the day?

Perhaps you are trying to live up to the expectations of others, or perhaps you are just hard on yourself.  And maybe you don’t have enough time in your day to really give that any thought!

If this sounds like you, then there has never been a better time to STOP than right now!

I’d like to invite you to take one day out of your busy schedule for a much-needed reset.  This retreat-style workshop is all about reconnecting to your essential self.  

What is ‘the Essential Self’?

Our essential selves are those integral parts of us that we can hear when we are still and quiet enough.  Our intuition, our inner compass, and all of our passions, goals and those things that make us…well, US!

The trouble is that our increasingly fast-paced world is getting louder and faster all the time, making it harder for us to stay connected to our essential self.  We end up getting swept along with the crowd, following the expectations of our family and society, while our essential selves get left behind.

So I want to help you find your way back.  By reconnecting you can get back what you have been missing; that purpose, inner guidance and direction for your life.  Learn to trust your own instinct again, and start feeling at home in yourself.

The Workshop

In this 1 day workshop you will learn to:

– Create a connection between mind & body
– Overcome feelings of self-doubt
– Quieten the overactive mind
– Get back in touch with what’s important to you
– Create ‘ME’ time
– Re-connect with your Passion

We will be using a variety of techniques; including breathing exercises, guided meditations, mindfulness, and lots of fun group activities.  The group size is limited to 18 places, so this will be an intimate and relaxing setting.

life's big questions

Do you find yourself asking some of these questions: What else is there to life? What’s my purpose in this seemingly crazy world? How do I know if I’m making the right choices? Why do I feel so alone right now? Why does life feel like such a struggle sometimes, when I have so much?

Do you find yourself asking these kinds of questions after a tough week at work, or an argument with someone close to you? Or are these questions in one form or another always on your mind? 

These are the bigger questions in life and I hear more people asking them.

Many of us are searching for answers and meaning. 

I realise that the question around ‘Where do I belong?’ is something that I’ve been asking myself for a long time. Living in London, we are surrounded by almost ten million people, yet many of us feel completely disconnected and not part of a community. As a result of technology we are more connected than ever before. No matter where we are in the world, everyone is instantly reachable. 

So why do we still feel alone??

Belonging is something that’s really important for me – my family, my friends, colleagues and being part of my immediate community. Ultimately, being surrounded by people that share similar values and ideas to me is how I thrive in this huge city I call home. 

What about you? How do you thrive?

Here are 3 tips that will help if you ask yourself these types of questions and aren’t sure where to find the answers…. 

  1. Do something in your community. Volunteer, help out a neighbour, join a local community group. Start to get to know the people who live around you. 
  2. Make a decision. Don’t avoid making a choice because you are overwhelmed by the  infinite choices that are available to you. By not deciding you are staying stuck, but that is still a choice for you to make. 
  3. Change one thing today. As humans we thrive on change. But we are creatures of comfort and many of us fear change. Yet, when things change or we challenge ourselves just a little we start to feel alive again. 

Who do you want to be? 

Start asking yourself some questions. Start taking a small step towards understanding who you are, what you want and where you’re going. When you get some clarity around this you can start to take some new action and life will start to change dramatically!

Remember:  Start small and build from there. 

Much love,
