Holistic Scotland Magazine columnist Leonie Gordon explains how we can set the start of 2019 apart and reset ourselves – from the comfort of our own homes
Are you already secretly dreading New Year and its resolutions, which you know you’ll break within weeks, or even days?
Are you ready for something different – to go deeper and break the cycle?
Towards the end of the year (every year), many of us turn (consciously or subconsciously) to reflecting on the past year’s successes and ‘failures’ and thinking about what we want for the year ahead.
We often use goals and New Year’s ‘resolutions’ to help us get to where we hope to be in the year ahead. And so often we have given up before we even begin.
But it’s time to reset the self-destruct button.
Wouldn’t you love to be able to have some space to retreat and be nurtured at this time of year instead, to allow the dust of 2018 to settle and your real dreams for 2019 to emerge naturally without all the heartache and effort?
And wouldn’t you love to be able to do that from the comfort of your own home with and to start now, with time to reflect on the past year, to let go of the ‘failures’ and celebrate the successes, in an online retreat designed to help you rediscover your energy, happiness and purpose, and to inspire you to shine your own unique light in the world?
Well, here is your chance to retreat in your own home over the next 50 days. Many years ago, I threw out New Year’s resolutions and, instead, started retreating, connecting in and creating my visions for the year ahead. That’s why, for the past five years, I’ve been supporting others to do the same in Aberdeenshire where I live.
So many people have said they would love to join in if only they lived closer to me and so this year I have created an online retreat.
This 50-day online retreat will gather an intimate circle of people who want to dive deep, loosen the grip of self-doubt and conditioning and connect into what they really long for to make 2019 their best year yet.
You will connect to your unique creative life source that fires your hopes and dreams. Our creative flow is not something we can all turn on and off. It is a space within ourselves that we have to connect to and that shows us the path we long to follow.
There is a story about Michelangelo when he was working on David. It’s said he sat in his studio for months looking at the giant piece of marble that would eventually become his masterpiece. After a time, his patrons came to him and said, “We hear you have stopped working!” to which he replied, “I have been working every day.”
We will be gathering, meditating, visioning, dreaming, sharing and nurturing your ability to connect in and provide yourself with space to tap into your natural curiosity and creativity and let your own truth emerge.
It takes disciple to be a free-spirit and truly live your dreams… We will identify those practices that you find inspiring and create new practices to support your unique vision for the year ahead.
If you feel the longing don’t hesitate, the course starts as soon as you jump in.
Included with the 50-day online retreat is:
- 5 x 1 1/2 hour in-depth coaching calls/webinars providing teaching, resources, tools and deeper experiential dives.
In between these calls, over the 50 days you will also receive:
- An online community where you can share the journey.
- Call recordings for those who could not attend live.
- Inspirations to help you digest the teachings.
- Extra audio tools offering shorter practices for ongoing use.
- Journal prompts
- Creative and visualisation tools to create your vision for 2019.
Dare to start dreaming now!
