“Go Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams. Live the Life You’ve Imagined”
– Henry David Thoreau
To create change in your life the first thing to do is dream!
Dream of your future. Imagine your life as you feel it ought to be lived.
Why? Because dreams shape goals! Goals drive us forward.
In goal-setting, the reason why most people are generally unsuccessful or fall short is because they do not know where to begin. The use of a Master Dream List not only develops your Plan of Action, it also generates the re-birth of your natural creativity. It re-schools your imagination and inventiveness. You give yourself permission to write down any wish, want, or desire regardless of how ridiculous it may seem. The secret is to let yourself go.
Then you can categorise and organise your dreams into development sections: physical, social, mental, spiritual, financial and family life.
For this fun workshop, bring with you a pen and plenty of paper.
Story telling is part of what it means to be human. We are natural story tellers, passing on important lessons through folklore and story since ancient times. In modern times, the best novels and films are narratives that reveal meaning to us that shifts our perspective. In our organisations and cultures, the most inspirational leaders communicate a vision that is a compelling story of how the future can be.
Our life stories are constructed as we remember and connect events in a way that makes sense of our experiences. Inwardly, this emerging narrative becomes our sense of self. Outwardly, we present ourselves to the world in narrative too, acting in ways that fit the story.
In narrative coaching, we are seeking not to understand the facts of events, but the unique way in which each individual experiences them. Everyone brings their own individual story and narrative coaching is a respectful, person-centred approach that can help people uncover and understand their own narrative. Through doing so, we can recognise that there can be alternative stories. Both for ourselves and for our organisations. We can re-construct our narratives and realise that we have the power to be the authors of our own life story.
Join this practical workshop to explore the use of narrative in support of change.
An opportunity to explore the practical use of Havening Techniques
Join this workshop and learn how to use Havening to empower yourself and others in practical, effective and comfortable ways. Our focus will be on exploring how we can change our perspective and emotional responses more easily and pleasantly than we might imagine; and in increasing our wellbeing, through accessing pleasant memories, sharing our experiences and utilising Havening Touch and several Havening Techniques.
About Havening: a better way of living through neuroscience
Through research and development, Drs Ronald and Steven Ruden were able to share a new system grounded in neuroscience and clinical observation. They called this system ‘Havening’, meaning ‘to put one in a safe place’, a safe haven.People who have experienced the techniques say that they are ‘effective’ and ‘easy and pleasant to use’. A study at King’s College London showed that after just one session of Havening nearly all of the participants were able to concentrate better, let go of disturbing thoughts and eliminate worry, and were able to boost their self-esteem. The results also showed that most of the participants were still benefiting from those changes two months after the single session of Havening.
About Carol Robertson PhD
This Havening Power Circle will be led by Carol who has developed this particular way of using Havening. She was one of the first five practitioners and Havening trainers in the world. Carol is also an artist, the author of two books published by Thames & Hudson, an inventor, and a specialist in sensory acuity, learning and change methods. She has found that studying Havening has transformed her understanding of learning, unlearning and how to generate effective and profound change in comfortable ways.
