Classes, courses & events
Oh how I love autumn! The fresh crisp air and clear sunny days to get out and embrace nature. Check out this park bench. I have sat here many times at different times of the year and reflected. Autumn is a wonderful time to see how nature deals with change and the examples all around us of letting go of the old to make way for the new to enter.
I invite you to sit a while and reflect on what you could let go of. What have you been clinging onto that may no longer be serving your highest good?
What have you done this month that honours the highest part of you?
If you haven’t honoured that highest part of you for a while then what is getting in the way?
Before you leave this place of reflection what could you let go of, what leaves are you willing to drop that will leave you feeling lighter but richer? As you let go be careful not to let go of the richness of the experiences that have led you to this place. Let all the emotions of past experiences add to the resilience building in your heart so you foster a heart that is supple and rich in experience. A heart that represents a life well lived. A heart filled with compassion and kindness.
Read on to see what is on offer this term to help you in the process of enjoying life and achieving vibrant health and wellbeing.
