It is getting lighter in the evenings, daffodils are starting to peek through the ground, and there is a feeling of new beginnings. Right now we are amongst confusion and an unknowingness that we have never experienced before, together. There are opportunities for all of us to grow. We have an opportunity to learn from everything that unfolds around us, however trivial to however traumatic. Can you resonate with that? Or do you get lost in the fear of it? I encourage you to look deeply, to ask questions to yourself, to be curious with life and at the same time be kind to you and go gently. It is a wonderful practice to see life this way, to step out of the drama of life, to find a little separation and space . And to remind ourselves of impermanence. Nothing stays the same, everything changes, however wonderful or however hard things may feel, things change, you will change, your body, all your cells, your thoughts, your perceptions. Don’t get stuck in the stories we tell ourselves, we always have a choice, how we react, how we see, feel, think. How does that concept make you feel? Explore your answer!

Take a Moment -A little bit of self care
Stop, take a pause,
Notice your breath,
Notice the air you breathe,
Listen with your ears more receptive, notice all the sounds you hear around you with enlivened newness
Look with your eyes more open, notice the colours with a new awareness
Notice the smells around you,
Just noticing, can you notice without judgement?
Can you notice without attachment?
Can you just be present to the nowness, just for this moment?
Take a beautifully refreshing breath in and take a deep rooted sigh out,
Be comfortable with whatever is arising,
just sit with it,
no judging, no wishing for change,
not clinging on to its story,
Have a lovely day and hope to see you in the zoom room.
one to one coaching and training available. Please enquire

Meditation & Journaling
Join me for this fabulous course in how to make the most of your meditations and understand the reasoning of journaling. How and why and what wisdoms are within it and demystifying everything around it.
We will go into journaling, unpacking any myths and creating a sense of safety around journaling and self permissions and limitations.
You will Be given set meditations to try, and unpack them. No rights or wrong here, just understanding different perspectives to open new ways of thinking and evolving.
Helping find clarity on your thoughts and insights in a safe supportive way
Why is this course something I should invest in ?
This combination is very powerful to helping you understand you in a more in-depth way. In a supportive group you have a chance to listen and or share if you are comfortable, this will help you to understand and start to see how we are all related and connected and how you will start to see your own innate wisdoms evolve and show up more readily and freely.
The power is you! This is a facilitated session to help with inner growth to help you find more ease, joy and peace in your life, and as a by product help you connect to others and improve relationships and give you the confidence to find your own voice.

November Term, an enriched program of Mind, Body, Soul with its influences being about embodiment, feeling, sensing, awakening, somatic and interoception.
Interoception– defined as the internal state of the body. It encompasses the brain’s process of integrating signals relayed from the body allowing for nuanced representation of the physiological state of the body. Why is this important? For maintaining homeostatis in the body and potentially facilitating self awareness. Misrepresentations of internal states, disconnection, have been suggested to underlie anxiety and depression.
When you can experience your body, everything can fall into place from movement itself, clarity of thought, personal relationships, releasing tensions emotional and physical. This topic alone can send me off into a whole realm of topics and discussions hence why I am opening up the ABC to Wellbeing Program to help you create, experience and understand it in an embodied sense. This course will be so valuable and life changing and even enabling you to get even more joy, peace, ease and flow out of everyday life, work, relationships to self and others, including seeing more depth into our monthly programs. So please register your interest, maybe even receive the ABC Wellbeing program for a gift for YOU or a loved one, friend for Christmas!
Anyway, back to November, 😊, the nights are drawing in, so being mindful of the season, and circadian rhythms the evening sessions will be gentle or strength based but with both you will be winding down early and having 15 minutes of relaxation/meditation to settle energies and the parasympathetic nervous system into a rested state, perfect to release the days stress and prepare the body and mind for goodnights sleep. Remember to follow this through with switching off gadgets well before bedtime, choosing your lights for your house to be soft and warm not harsh lights as this messes up the circadian rhythm , eat earlier in the evening, avoid stress provoking situations, news and TV will also help.
Thursday Barre is back! use a table, worktop, window ledge or even a wall. A whole body standing push, pull, arc and curl for the most beautiful sensory stretch session , In my opinion.😊
Please share the program so others can join us and benefit and feel the best they can be, everyday !
Have a wonderful day
much love Sue 🌟🙏🏼🤍
