Riddle me this: Do you spend more time focusing on managing and maneuvering the stress of your current situation or, on what you really want your life to look like? How often do you even dare to ask yourself what you really want?

Actually, creating a happier, more successful and less-stressed life isn’t a riddle at all. It’s more of a formula. Each of us has a unique formula for creating a life of success, flow and ease. But, before you can discover it, you must ask yourself what you really want. If you focus only on where you currently are, you will stay there. You know this, right? If your days are primarily about managing and maintaining life-as-you-know-it, how can you possibly end up with life-as-you-want-it?

Yes. Each of us has a unique formula for success, flow and ease. (Our formula is almost never the same as our spouse or partner, by the way.) If you’ve been thrown a few curveballs, it’s likely that your formula is scrambled, causing exhaustion and confusion about direction that can compound over time.

The good news is that it’s absolutely repairable and a sense of clarity and direction is easier to achieve than you might think.

If mindfulness were accomplished by simply adding a meditation app to our phones we would all be able to check that box and wait for the happiness to flow in. Mindfulness is so much more than meditation-and it is essentially something we define for ourselves-but most of us need a little help figuring out what mindfulness could look like in a life that is real and big and
sometimes a frantic sprint from one thing to the next.

If you are ready to feel like you have more control over your life and work especially ready to live a life that is of much more of your choosing then this workshop is for you. If you are interested in taking a fresh look at your approach to time and the flow of your home and work life in order to give some context to your mindfulness program then this workshop is for you. If you are looking for some strategies, a new way to look at time, and a bit of brain science info then this workshop is for you. Finally, if the thought of chanting and mantras sounds awful-then this workshop is for you.
