Still with the passing of each year and the beginning of the next there is a beautiful opportunity to reflect on the year just gone. When you do, try to do this in a ‘wholistic’ way . When we look at things in their ‘wholeness’ we need to see things from different angles, to see the totality as best we can, to do this we must use our heart. Each year may present different themes, challenges, beauty but at the same time each year is a piece of our total lifetime and there is always positive and negative and positive in the negative and negative in the positive and also everything is in a constant state of change and can be changed
What happend this year is an important piece of the puzzle for next year. Usually the goals we set in the new year are in response to the year just passed. When we set goals try to focus not only on external goals but also internal ones as it is the internal ones that will impact our lives in a more beneficial way both internally and externally. It is the internal shift we need to make to fundamentally change the external. When we reflect on our personal growth try to see both the improvements we have already made and those that still need some work. When we develop an internal way of working with goal setting we can more easily mine the gemstones of life and more likely reach true contentment, health, wellbeing and happiness in life.
This process of looking back and looking forward. We can do this alone, write it down, we can do this with others, friends, family, partner to further reflect and connect and to gain clarity and more understanding of the year just passed and of our future direction and to gain clarity of the things we wish to let go of that does not serve our health, happiness and growth.
Individual Life Direction/Cultivation Sessions
I offer one on one sessions to make this process a more conscious one. I have started doing more individual sessions and have received much positive feedback. I have also begun a 2 year postgraduate training in Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy to deepen and broaden the work I am able to do with people. Online sessions and sessions at my home, Ruby Bay and Nelson are possible. See Services on my website for more information.
Yuan gong and Ren Xue are at the core of these sessions to reach more clarity, to shine light on so we can see things clearer. The sessions have some of the following core components
Meditations to open and deepen the connection to our hearts and relationship to ourselves and to grow more mindfulness in everyday life.
Mindfulness, Self observation and awareness practices that we can bring into our everyday life, bringing it into every moment of life we reach more clarity and self realization. Pure observation combined with a open heart can lead the way to higher realization of your true nature/self and the ever growing potential of wisdom.
Identifying a pattern or particular area of our lives we would like to work on to gain better understanding of ourselves and to better focus our work to create change and gain practical understanding on how to apply the teaching.
