Winter 2014

Classes, courses & events

Greetings,

How are you enjoying winter?  Is it a time of year that you take the opportunity to slow down in and rest a little more, reflect a little more?

Or do you complain about the rain, the wind, the cold, the shorter days and longer nights?

We’ve actually had the shortest day of the year and so can now begin to observe the days getting longer and lighter.  It doesn’t really matter what we think about winter because it will come and go anyway and before we know it spring will be here then summer and so the cycles roll on.

I like to wonder about all sorts of things and I wonder what it would be like to find the gift in each season.  To welcome each season as an opportunity to embrace the qualities of that time of year.

If we took the time in winter to enjoy warming, slow cooked food, to slow down ourselves and reflect whilst enjoying longer evenings sharing our thoughts and winter food with those close to us, what would that feel like?  Enjoying the indoors and connections with other people as we reflect on what has nourished us so far in the year and what we might need to plan to ensure we complete the year feeling fulfilled and satisfied.

I’ve recently returned from Sydney where I attended the Happiness Conference.  The theme of the conference was “What makes a good life” and we heard from many amazing people from around the world.  I’d like to share with you words from Huge Mackay who asked the question “What makes a life worth living?”.

  • Life lived to a sense of purpose
  • A life lived not for “self” but for others
  • Connections and quality of relations with others
  • Give up perfection
  • Give up the quest of “who am I?” and start asking “who are we” as a collective
  • Serve and nurture
  • Treat others well – kindness

Enjoy the rest of winter and consider reflecting on what makes life worth living for you and let that structure the rest of your amazing year.

Please find below upcoming classes, courses and retreats for winter.
