Miriam will begin by introducing and explaining what EFT is and how it’s done.

  

She'll offer us some “tips & tricks,” including how to deal with self-acceptance when a person’s self-acceptance is not perfect.

  

Following her explanations, Miriam will do an EFT Round for all attendees and then demonstrate working on individuals.

 

A lively discussion via Q & A and some journaling will round out this episode for us.

 

In the end, each person should be able to do basic EFT on their own.

Let's Explore:

Living an Examined Life, Wisdom for the Second Half of the Journey

by Jungian analyst James Hollis, Ph.D.

 

Socrates' claim that the unexamined life is not worth living makes a satisfying climax for the deeply principled arguments that Socrates presents on behalf of the philosophical life.

 

The claim is that only in striving to come to know ourselves and to understand ourselves do our lives have any meaning or value.

Pause, the Journal

Special Guest Rachel O'Meara

People are raving about Pause: The Journal

  ​

Pause: The Journal offers a guided practice to help you appreciate your life. I recommend it for whatever is happening for you right now.”

~ Sharon Salzberg,
author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness 

According to Rachael, a pause is defined as an intentional shift in behaviour. Journaling in itself is a pause. A pause is about taking a time-out to create the space for your inner voice to be heard and to align your actions with that voice in service to creating your dreams and more of what you want in life.


That’s what Pause: The Journal is all about--taking a
time-out to create the space for your inner voice to be heard and to align your actions with that voice in order to create your dreams.

In this episode, Rachael will guide us on our own pause journey to:

  • Pause in daily reflection to process and visualize so you can be more focused, clear, and empowered

  • Retrain your brain to orient towards the positive through celebrating, gratitude and acknowledgement prompts

  • Take incremental, inspired action to move towards your vision, desired outcome, or dream

Pause: The Journal is Rachel's companion book to, Pause, which was named one of 2017's top business books for your career and was featured in the New York Times and on WSJ.com.

She is certified in Transformational Coaching from the Wright Graduate University for the Realization of Human Potential (ICF model) and has an MBA from Fordham University.

Sacred Spaces through Subtle Shifts

Special Guest Colleen Avis

ttuckptpa5no26ag5nk4vmig3o._SY600_.jpg

Colleen will share a different way to look at the precious time and spaces we live in.  Often moving too fast and full of possibilities, life can feel overwhelming, and we can feel numb, anxious, stressed, and lost without a grounded purpose.  Looking at how to get more done in the day is an old and outdated way of moving through the time and space we are offered.

 

Avis shares, "I hope attendees will benefit from my presentation and sharing by seeing a new way to look at the choices they make and how those choices impact how they feel and how they can create a more harmonious life full of joy and fun they deserve."

Colleen is a Chopra Integrative Life Coach, Ayurveda Health and Mindfulness Mentor, and Yoga Instructor. Her approach embraces the whole person and believes all our spaces (mind, body and dwelling spaces) are beautifully intertwined.
