WHAT IS MINDFULNESS-BASED PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT?
This course is a resource and support from someone who's been where you are now and knows a way out of psychological and emotional stress. For 8 weeks you’ll have the opportunity to meet me LIVE ONLINE to explore more deeply the internal chattering of your mind, to give space to your needs and wants and be supported in a process of healing and recovery from stressful or painful situations that are presenting in your life.
I am not a guru. I am just like you. I have experienced deep, shattering emotional pain, worked through suicidal depression and uncovered my own deeply rooted feelings of shame and worthlessness. On the outside, you wouldn’t have know this. I was a high-achiever and climbed the ladder in the corporate world, all the while, plagued by self-doubt and a fear. My own journey to finding peace within and a love for myself, came in an unusual way, and I’ll share that with you too…
But for you… this course gives you a safe, experiential way to shine a light on what's really going on for you and how you begin to make decisions that are right for you. Through self-reflective exercises, homework and practice you begin to reconnect with the essence of who you really are and see what make you tick and what's most supportive for you. Here you can explore the messy world of mind and emotions, of head versus heart, of fears and desires… and find insight, balance and the skills to navigate life in a more self-loving and healthy way.
Most mindfulness-based courses simply give meditation instructions and leave you alone to figure it out for yourself. I've known so many people just quit it because they don't have the back-up when things 'come up' or the meditations they learn don't suit their unique personalities or active lifestyles. Sitting down still can be a nightmare for someone with a mind that simply won't shut up. I take the time to guide you through the stuff that ‘comes up’ and offer therapeutic techniques that help the mind to process events rather than simply understand them.
Conventional therapy in itself is missing something… it misses the ultimate escape route. For years people can get trapped in digging up endless problems without real resolution. Ultimately, escape from mental suffering can only be lasting when we release ourselves from the grip of mind’s relentless analysis.
So often in life we put our personal wellbeing to the back of the queue. But really, how much is your happiness worth to you? Come join me… together we’ll find that place of balance and resource.
