I have taken the plunge – after the success of my Earn Extra Income by teaching Mindfulness with the Help of Your Horses online course a year ago, I have decided to create another one, in the shape of a virtual retreat: the Life Crisis Coping Skills Virtual Retreat. The idea is to create several more virtual retreats – all under the Live Your Best Life – a Purposeful, Meaningful and Fulfilling Life banner.
Hal Elrod, one of my favourite authors said, “YOU are just as deserving of extraordinary happiness, health, wealth and success as any other person on this planet! Believe that, know it in your heart, and take the necessary actions TODAY to start creating the extraordinary life you deserve to live.”
He also said, “Your entire life changes the day that you decide you will no longer accept mediocrity for yourself. When you realize that today is the most important day of your life. When you decide that now matters more than any other time because it is who you are becoming each day based on the decisions that you are making and the actions that you are taking that is determining who you are going to be for the rest of your life.”
And, “Don’t place unnecessary limitations on what you want for your life. Think bigger than you’ve allowed yourself to think up until this point. Get clear on what you truly want, condition yourself to the belief that it’s possible by focusing on and affirming it every day, and then consistently move in the direction of your vision until it becomes your reality. There is nothing to fear, because you cannot fail—only learn, grow, and become better than you’ve ever been before.”
The purpose of my virtual retreats is to enable my students to do exactly that.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others, ” Marianne Williamson said.
Will you accept the challenge?
My mission for us is to master the coping skills we need to survive all of life’s inconvenient and disruptive little crises – including quater, mid or late-life crises – so that we can live purposeful, meaningful and fulfilling lives. In this first online retreat, Life Crisis Coping Skills Retreat, I’m not going to do what everyone else does and bombard you with outdated information and videos that I recorded years ago. Instead, we are going to co-create this course together. I am going to do live Zoom calls with you and my other students. We’ll go through the course material together, and you’ll give me feedback on what works for you and what doesn’t, what you loved and what you hated. You’ll contribute to designing each lesson of this course, so that it is unique and tailor-made for you. In other words, exactly what you need when you need it.
I want to make sure that what I’m covering and including is the most useful material, in the most accessible form, for you and the other students. I want to be sure this is the most transformative experience possible for you.
Think of it as a pilot program where you’ll get loads of personal attention and support from me, much more than any of the students, who do the course after you. I am only accepting 10 students in this beta-group, who will be able to buy the course for half of the final price.
Does that sound like something you would be interested in?
If you are starting your own business, going back to school, gettting divorced, losing a loved one, buying and moving house, facing redundancy, suffering from a serious illness, taking exams, changing careersn confronted with bancruptcy, struggling with a friends’ suicide, have adolescent children, conflict at work or relationship problems – any event or situation that you find stressful to the extent that your normal coping skills and strategies are insufficient – this course will equip you with the skills you need to survive the crisis.
