Event description

Description

You want it so badly - to feel content, to feel at peace, to feel alive, to feel inspired. You think to yourself, if I just meditate a little longer, relax a little more or read one more article on happiness and the meaning of life then I'll get 'there', I will be happy and fulfilled.

Meditation allows you to be present, relaxation allows you to feel calm, self help articles gives you tools for emotional well being and it's all good and helpful and will get you somewhere.

But without compassion these are just strategies, more things to pile on your list of 'shoulds'.

The truth is, meditation, relaxation and self help advice won't fully absorb and transform your state of mind and emotional well being if it isn't coloured with compassion - compassion for you, compassion for others and compassion for the world around you.

Without compassion you become aware of your thoughts, emotions and behaviours, but still feel trapped, ashamed and burdened by them.

Without compassion, you develop new and helpful ways of thinking but they don't stick.

Without compassion, you become acutely aware of your shortcomings, but continue to feel isolated and disconnected.

Giving a damn about yourself, about others and about the world around you is not just about feeling good, but about experiencing a true sense of personal freedom and fulfillment.

Compassion isn't easy. You don't suddenly wake up one day with ability to be kind to yourself in your darkest moments or to be bigger, stronger and wiser than your blaming, judging self. Compassion is a skill to cultivate; a way of life to develop.

Compassion is the bridge between self critcism and self acceptance, blame and connection, shame and empowerment.

Give a Damn and Be Happy is a one and a half hour journey that will support you to be an agent of change in your life. This transformative experience is desinged to lift you up out of the swamp of negative beliefs and emotions, and to elevate you to a deep sense of happiness.

This is not a lecture or a list of strategies. My intention is to engage, inspire and move you to take ownership over your emotional well being so that you are not only clear about your goals, values and hopes, but also empowered to bring those to life.

Give a Damn and Be Happy will empower you to

* Experience a sense of calm and confidence in who you are and what you stand for

* Know exactly how to make effortless decisions based on what truly matters to you

* Feel confident in managing strong emotions and negative thinking

* Release self doubt, second guesing and low confidence

* Feel deeply connected to the important people in your life

* Actually follow through on the things that you know are good for you

The evening will include

* Lively discussion

* Practical tools and strategies

* Oppurtunities to hang out with and learn from other like minded compassionate people

* Delicious vegan treats and warming teas

This is going to be an amazing opportunity to look at mental health and well being from a fresh new angle that fosters lasting, positive change.

I'm looking forward to seeing you there!
