We’ve been back home in Australia for almost 9 months now…
It may have appeared that our adventures ended when we resumed the familiar routine life in Sydney, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Things are not as they were. Since returning, a new chapter of the continuing adventure began.
This stack of 108 palm cards, which I bought in Chamonix for my french vocabulary lessons, represent the starting point for what has evolved into a year long, heart felt project.
A project that is coming to fruition…
On the floor in our chalet, twelve months ago, I started to write on each of them, all the challenges I had wrestled with during years of low self esteem, feeling hopeless and managing ongoing bouts of depression. I started to write about every experience of wanting to give up, feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope and ashamed at my doubts and fears: Every situation in which I didn’t feel good enough, or capable enough: Each critical conversation, insight, technique, process, diet, recipe, and system I discovered and practiced in order to integrate change and find my balance mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
My obsessive pursuit of all things yoga, meditation, nutrition and mindset/coaching and counselling were all attempts to heal something that simply didnt feel “right” within me: Desperately trying to find inner peace in a world that was fiercely oppositional: A world in which I felt I wasn’t able to master my own life and a world in which I struggled to have harmonious connections with the people most dear to me. A world in which I really didnt feel I belonged to or could thrive in. A world, in which everything felt like a big ongoing struggle. A world in which yoga and meditation were like medicine to heal something that was broken.
Every teacher I’ve worked with over the past ten years, every certification I gained, each retreat I attended and each qualification I achieved became pieces in the puzzle – Now meaningful memories of integration, here on my palm cards. My many palm cards – rich with stories of transformational steps to finding peace, confidence, joy, harmony and a sense of being at home within myself.
Its been 9 months of organising, clarifying and distilling these cards into digestible modules ready to share with those in need, just like I was, starving for the nourishment only truth could offer me. And just like the incubation of a new life, I’m weeks away from sharing these precious gifts with you in a new program, that is very, very personal to me: In & Out of The Woods. Its a ten month, transformational program, in which I will take participants on the journey I took from feeling inadequate and apathetic, to feeling connected, alive and bringing my dreams to life. This program is about creating long lasting, sustainable change for mastering your own mind, heart & soul.
More details will be coming soon. In the mean time, please share this with those you know who may be struggling and searching on the path – add their name to my special list, so they can stay in the loop.
Blessings to you and all you hold dear.
