Life constantly surprises us with unexpected moments and unwanted curve balls. We call these moments “lifeshocks”. These lifeshocks require us to respond in new ways every day, but our ‘natural’ response is limited by habitual patterns of behaviour developed over time.
The More To Life Weekend is an immersive, entry-level course within a curriculum of courses that provide a series of reality-based, pragmatic tools that can be put into practice immediately. The Weekend is designed to help you become aware of your unconscious inner dialogue, which offers non-stop commentary on everything that happens and everything you do. During the course, we bring our attention to previously unnoticed accusations and demands about how everything 'should be’ or ‘shouldn’t be’, while working to understand how little control we have over life itself. We evaluate how our own behaviours limit our happiness and how we each choose to respond to our lifeshocks, insecurities, and fears in very different ways. Some choose to live their lives by winning at all costs, having to be in control, to always be right, or pretend to have it all together. Others choose to give up, play small, and not take risks. Fortunately, there is a way out of our own entanglement, a way to create our life as we really want it to be and be More of the person we really are.
This exceptional tool-kit for bold, vibrant living offers a way to:
- Have clarity of mind and purpose
- Genuine self-acceptance and love
- An understanding of your place in the world
- A renewed vision for what is possible and the tools to realise it
- Let go of self-sabotaging behaviours and release the inner chains that hold you back
- Heal the accumulated hurts
- Reconnect with who and what most matters to you
This is the ‘More’ we offer. More connection. More power. More wonder.
