About this Event

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Revealing Stories

In this one-day practical workshop, we will identify the self-critical inner voice and self-sabotaging stories or beliefs which are stopping us from moving forward in the direction we truly want.

Sometimes unbeknownst to ourselves we are all living in narratives and patterns, stories and beliefs that are 'steering the ship'. Why is it we know 'exactly what to do', but can't seem to remain consistent on the path?

Irrespective of how much great information or many great ideas we take on that we hope will support us with change, we will always come back to acting in line with our identity, our set of beliefs about how we fit into the world. On the Discovery Day workshop we'll dive deep into the origins of our stories and beliefs and take back the pen to re-write the scripts that are no longer serving us. This day marks the beginning of crafting a new and more empowered identity that you will develop over time.

You'll learn how to recognise the meanings you attach to situations and come to see the impact your conditioning has had and continues to have on your worldview, on your feelings, your actions and your results.

On top of re-writing past scripts which have affected confidence, clarity and consistency to what we really want in life you'll learn how to challenge future stresses and stories that when left to their own devices will pull you off track and lead to self sabotage or self abandonment.

Mapping Feelings

From there, we will work on addressing patterns of feelings we have around specific people or circumstances in our lives. Oftentimes it is not the situation itself but our attitudes to them which cause us the most anxiety.

We will carry out some powerful emotional mapping exercises and how they relate to some of our deepest unmet needs.

Often through social conditioning and mirroring what we see in others we have been led to believe that certain feelings are 'good' and others feelings are 'bad'. As a result we often suppress or sedate from the feelings we see as unacceptable, desperately trying to keep them in the shadows, far away from what can be seen. Hiding so much of who we are only proves exhausting and so rather than cut off parts of ourself we will explore the gift of negative feelings and learn how to see them as a path back to ourselves and not as a reason to self abandon.

We'll learn to identify and label emotions and recognise the patterns and behaviours we have grown accustomed to practicing to escape the uncomfortable.

These emotional literacy exercises are essential requirements before considering making any significant life changes to your career, business, health, and especially to your relationships.

We will identify some of our self-narratives or ‘stories and hold us back from stepping up or moving forward in certain areas of our lives.

“If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.”

- Henry Ford

Actioning Identities

Once we recognize our existing pattern of thoughts and feelings we can begin to build the new. Here we can begin to move from reactionary to responsive in life, consciously choosing what we are going to create in our work, in our relationships, with our health and with our overall feelings in life.

The day-long workshop will include practical ways of developing and orienting ourselves towards the type of person we actually want to become.

It takes a different set of skills to become this type of person and for many these will be the first moves towards stepping into becoming that person.

We'll talk about behavioural change and building consistent empowering habits that support us in developing our new identity.

Redefining Results

The workshop aims to get you clarity around your inner stories, true needs, and to help you identify previous patterns you may have been carrying your whole life up til now.

You can choose to leave behind what’s not working for you and keep the rest. You may even decide to create something entirely new altogether.

It’s your chance to take the pen back and write your story the way you want to, going forward.

At the end of this event, you will have got clear on how to effectively move forward in specific areas. You will be equipped with tools to continuously check-in and develop your emotional literacy. This alone might be some of the most impactful work we can do on ourselves and for those around us.

Self-awareness starts with stepping outside in order to examine the bigger picture of who and where we are and where we want to go.

I invite you to give yourself the space to do just that with me on Saturday, 7th November 2020 at 10 am (BST).
