Presentation: Resilience Is Dead

ResilienceA completely overrated presentation where you will gain nothing!

I am going to suggest that many people, including myself harbour two things. One is problems, the other is desires.

Nothing wrong with either. It’s just the way of life. But when either one or both of these two become an irritant there really are issues.

In this workshop I want to suggest and do something about the obvious. This is what we know in our bones, what is wrong, what causes problems. The other obvious bit is that instead of taking another course, instead of reading another book, instead of joining another class … we consider the exact opposite.

If you. like me, occasionally get overly attached to what is being portrayed in the news, on television or with the good opinions of others, this may be for you … if you are honestly OK with letting stuff go. As in making a commitment to stop wasting and giving away your precious life energy to rubbish, this overrated workshop may be for you.

We live in an age where a maximally intolerant minority are dictating how a tolerant majority lives. Opinions on social media, television and the like, can inflame my sensibilities where almost every day I am reading something about cultural appropriation, anti-this, and, that-a-phobic, where free speech and your thoughts are being shaped to be suppressed. Everyone else knows what is best for you!

This workshop is about discovering, what are the persistent irritants in your life and making a commitment to reducing, subtracting or removing the persistent goo that is stuck on your shoes, the kind you can continue to take into your home again and again.

Workshop Covering

  • Via Negativa (Nassim Nicholas Taleb) or what is wrong in your life
  • Self Sabotage or some other irritant
  • Guided Visualisation on reductionism

This is completely overrated and you won’t be taking anything away from this workshop.

Presentation: Get Going!

MotivationThe rules of motivation – A Life Clubs Workshop hosted by Jane Steed

We are born motivated – we teach ourselves to walk and talk and we naturally learn and want to advance forward. But, as time goes on, fear, doubt and laziness creep in. It’s only when you have discovered what motivates you that you’ll be able to stay on track of your goals.

Although each of us intuitively knows our motivational toolkit, once you have found it consciously you’ll be able to access it whenever you want. Our Get Going workshop will teach you how to find your innate motivational tools and the self-talk that works for you, enabling you to achieve whatever it is you want.

Each of us has unique tools that keep us motivated. This workshop will enable you to learn how different we all are and what drives you on.

Outcomes:

  • Finding what has worked for you in the past
  • Learning the ‘self talk’ which suits you
  • Assemble your motivational toolkit to get you going and staying motivated

Presentation: Freeing Your Mind Of Negative Thoughts

Negative Thinking‘There is nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so’
William Shakespeare

Does your inner critic say you’re not good enough?

Does your head fill up with negative thoughts whenever you are trying something new or
challenging?

Do these thoughts pop into your head:

  • “That’s never going to work.”
  • “I’m going to fail.”
  • “I don’t deserve to be successful.”
  • “Everyone will laugh at me”

Perhaps you feel like an impostor, that you really aren’t any good at what you do and your
inner critic reinforces this with “You’re going to be found out!”

Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you had complete self-belief?

If any of this sound familiar, join Lou Laggan for her Freeing Your Mind of Negative
Thoughts

You’ll discover how to take care of negative thoughts without fighting them; in a way which
will allow you to develop more positive and supportive thinking. The type of thinking that
allows you to grow and thrive in whatever you do.

Presentation: The Solution Workshop

Solution WorkshopThis workshop will look at the different tools, techniques and approaches we can use when working with clients, colleagues, family members or even ourselves.

I would like this to be a workshop that enables participants to find a workable solution/approach to a current issue that they are dealing with.

This means that I do not know what processes we will be covering until the issues are raised at the workshop.

‘O what joy this will be for me, and you as well’.

Presentation: Self-Care For Carers Using EFT

Self care for carersBeing a carer can be hard work, physically and emotionally.

While it can’t help much with the physical parts of caring, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT/Tapping), a simple self-help approach, can help ease the emotional strain of caring for others.

In this workshop Heather Carter will touch on facing the big emotions such as: guilt, anger, resentment, fear, helplessness, loss, grief, feeling invisible, being taken for granted, other people’s expectations, personal expectations, financial hardship, lack of time for self and feeling selfish for minding.

This presentation reflects Heather’s current situation so it is offered from her lived experience and what she has learned.

A short introduction to EFT will be included so you don’t need any prior knowledge of tapping to take part in this presentation.
