Workshops Byron Bay and Beyond
Host a Workshop
I love working in groups. It gives us a chance to spend time with like-minded people, and more importantly, we realise that we are not alone with our problems. We share similar issues despite our own unique differences. Plus it can be a lot of fun to connect, share and be with each other. If you are interested in hosting a workshop, or for me to be part of your event/conference, please contact me. I live near Byron Bay, Australia, and I am very happy to hold events locally, travel or conduct them online.
I look forward to hearing from you!
One-Day Introduction to 'The Work'
For Beginners and Intermediate
‘The Work’ was developed by Byron Katie. It is a powerful and yet simple technique to question your stressful thoughts and beliefs. It can lead you straight to the core of your distress and help you to see more clearly what is really going on. The Work consists of four questions and turnarounds. The answers to those questions will come from you, for you. They will guide you to a deeper understanding of yourself, your situation and others.
During this introduction we will:
- Talk about how to get started with ‘The Work’
- Explore the thoughts behind emotional discomfort
- Experience the depth of the four questions
- Enjoy the magic of the turnarounds
Learning the technique can give you both, deep insight and independence. You can do ‘The Work’ on your own, any time, anywhere.
2-Day Workshop for Women: Self-Love, Self-Worth & Self-Care
Meet the most important person in your life: You
You are the one with whom you will spend your entire life – starting on day one until you pass. Other people fade in and out of your existence, but you remain. No matter where you go or what you do, there you are. The relationship you have with yourself will determine how you relate to others and how you experience life. If we are not happy in our own skin, we project that discontent onto other people and into life. Internally it can lead to anxiety, mood swings, low energy, self-sabotaging behaviour, frustration and depression.
Not good enough, unworthy, worthless, imperfect, flawed, wrong – whatever your words are, they come from the same source and affect us in surprisingly similar ways. Feeling ‘not enough’ lives inside most of us, often undercover, until we get to know it for what it really is. My invitation is to meet ‘unworthiness’ with kindness and understanding. Why? Because it seems that we have tried forever to get rid of it, to suppress it, to compensate, and deny it, and it does not work. Let’s see what happens when we try a different approach, the opposite!
Coming together as a group and sharing our stories is a healing moment in itself. The ‘me-too’ realisation can take away our sense of isolation. Together we will explore what your specific beliefs are around ‘unworthiness’. This time together will be a gentle and deep immersion into yourself. We will:
• Discover how those beliefs influence our relationship with ourselves and others
• Give those beliefs a voice and permission to be a part of the process
• Meet them with understanding and kindness
• Question their validity
• Expand our perspective and potential
• Find the humour that is so often hard to see when we are distressed
Discover Your Creativity
For Beginners and Intermediate
Do you want to be creative, but you don’t know how to start?
As I visual artist, I know anyone can paint, draw, sculpt, write or make music. Anybody can create. It is not reserved for a chosen few.
If you feel a desire to be creative, but it is not happening, you most likely have a belief system that limits you. Most of us have an inner critic who restricts us from exploring and playing creatively.
‘Discover Your Creativity’ is course specially designed to work on your mental blocks and free your creative abilities. We will explore:
- What do you think about yourself?
- What judgments do you have about your creativity?
- What feelings or memories are holding you back?
- How do your thoughts and beliefs limit you?
Also, we will be creative and make things! You get to pick your medium: writing, painting, drawing, make a collage, or experimenting with sculpture. It doesn’t matter what you choose. It is about getting started, being playful and having fun! Fun and play are the key ingredients in the creative process.
The Mind Can Never Be Controlled; It can be questioned, loved, and met with understanding.Byron Katie
