Ink about it. Writing to Quiet your Mind and Soothe your Soul. September 14-16th, 2018 at Harrison Hot Springs Resort.
I don't know about you, but my mind can get really busy. The trouble is I can't hear my intuition while the busyness in my mind is running away with me. The other piece is that without my intuition, I'm not able to access what I know to be true, for myself. Believe me I've tried living my life from the outside in. Trying to meet the expectation, assumptions, ideals, and models that were coming at me from outside. Every time I denied my own truth, I landed in the ditch of uncertainty, and self bashing. It became starkly clear that I had to find my way, for me, on my own. Which the best way I know how to do that is through writing.
Yet, when I sat down to write, it quickly became uncomfortable. I judged myself relentlessly, I self-criticized, and I uncovered ideas of not being all I 'should' be.
Why would anyone want to write things down?
Simply put, writing brought me back to my magnificent self. It is the only place I can really tell the truth about what I think and believe.
What I discovered is a wisdom and knowing that is pretty magnetic. People are asking me for more. What I know absolutely for sure is: You matter. Your words, your beliefs, your vision make such a difference to the quality of your life and the lives of those around you.
Yes, there are challenges, challenges I'm well versed in, and that I can teach you how to work with. There is no need to be repelled by any challenge. Each obstacle actually brings you closer to yourself.
It's time for you to make peace with all this, master your mind, and move into your heart. Your intuition, creativity, love and acceptance are waiting to meet you half way.
Over the three days that we will spend together we will dive into this practice of writing, meditate, move our bodies, nourish our souls in the mineral hot springs, walk in nature, and sooth our spirit.
We begin Friday night at 7 pm with an introduction, handing out your gift bags of goodies, centre ourselves and get grounded for the work we are going to do. Then we can meet in the hot pools for relaxation and connection.
Saturday we will dive into writing with breaks during the day for walking, meditating and connection to our souls.
Sunday we will bring the weekend to a close with visioning into the future, and solidifying your writing practice.
Friday: Please have dinner before you arrive. Saturday: A breakfast voucher for the hotel restaurant is provided, with lunch being brought into our meeting room for us.
