“The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.”
~ Pema Chödrön
I’m holding a residential retreat from November 28 to December 5, in beautiful Byron Bay. It’s a perfect way to see out the energies of 2015, and prepare for 2016. Perhaps you’d like to join us for a week of nurture and inspiration?
If I was to sum up the energies of 2016 in one word, that word would be LAUNCH. It will be a year for expressing yourself in the world, taking new directions and finding new ways of being, for starting and growing life-changing projects, for truly becoming more of who you are. A year that demands honesty and space for being yourself, sharing your gifts and moving into the flow of creativity and abundance.
But we can’t take full advantage of this prosperous energy if we come to the new year with a flat battery. We can’t take full advantage of this gift if we don’t know how to create space for ourselves and our dreams, even as we are taking care of everyone else and needing to be present to the demands of our everyday lives. We can’t thrive if we keep pleasing others while disappointing ourselves and putting ourselves second, or even last…
2015’s Soul Sanctuary Retreat will give you the tools for extreme self-care, for personal and life management, and for being able to put plans on the page that are actionable and realistic, with just the right amount of daring.
The Soul Sanctuary Retreat is for women only. It’s a week of pamper, nurture and time for yourself. A perfect opportunity for you to rest and rejuvenate, indulge in some self-care, find friendship and emotional support, and make the focus all about YOU!
Highlights of this week-long retreat:
- We will learn some simple meditation techniques to help us connect into Universal Energy for healing and guidance, including some of the new work Nicole has channeled in for healing self and others
- We will give ourselves space to relax and renew
- We will learn some simple strategies for rebalancing and energizing our bodies
- We will harness the shamanic power of plants to transform ourselves and our emotions. We will also learn how to make simple skincare and self-nurture products using recipes that combine crystals, essential oils and flowers.
- We will learn about the Akashic Records and find out what strengths and talents we have come here to work with in this lifetime. This will help us to decide which dreams to follow, and how to best make our life meaningful and satisfying
- We’ll identify the stories we keep telling ourselves and re-enacting – negative and positive – that are holding us back from growth and success
- We will create our own Power Essence – a fragrance that will allow us to focus deeply on our dreams and opportunities for 2016
- We will learn how to use the Akashic Records to travel along our own personal timeline – past, present and future
- We will learn how to create space in each day, and each week, for ourselves and our own needs
- We will determine our One Big Thing, and from that we’ll develop our own personal Best Daily Habits, Weekly Planning Session Strategies and a Brilliant Year Flow Plan
- We will create our own programmed-crystal wearable art to support and strengthen our 2016 Soul Energy and One Big Thing
- We’ll learn how to make our lives and our success more sustainable and enjoyable
There will be plenty of restful time for naps, swims, contemplation, friendship and personal projects. There will be time for meditation, and lots of channeled goodness with Nicole’s beautiful team. There will be time for healing, journaling, relaxing, spiritual goodness and lots of yummy organic food, lovingly created by our own personal chef.
We’ll also be working with the energies of the waning gibbous moon in Cancer, which is perfect for focusing on our own needs and plans, and for nurturing and mothering ourselves in order to give birth to our bigger and wiser dreams.
Now that we are firmly in the flow of this new era of awakening, and the energy of 2012 and the preceding energetic era is firmly behind us, everything is happening more easily and faster. Let’s learn how to consciously evolve using this quickening energy.
I’m so excited about this course, and we still have a few places left.
If you’d like more information please contact Dana, my wonderful PA, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Or drop us a note below or on our facebook page and we’ll send the details through to you.
Lots of love 🙂 Nicole xoxo
