HOLIDAY SEASON WITH INTENTION
SHENOA’s MINI POP UP WORKSHOP SERIE
SATURDAY NOV. 3rd + 10th, 2018
9:30 AM to 12:30 PM
DO YOU FEEL THE NEED FOR A HOLIDAY FROM THE HOLIDAY?
If the simple thought of the coming up Holiday Season feels like a bad case of rash, you got what is called “Festive Stress”.
According the New York Post he pressure to have a “perfect Christmas” also takes its toll on 41 percent of Americans, who confess to working “too hard” to achieve it. The percentage jumps to almost half (49 percent) for moms, who put even more pressure on themselves.
Yes, you read correctly:
★ 49% of mothers out there feel miserable, exhausted, overwhelmed between Halloween & New Year Eve.
★ 54% of women struggle to slow down and simply enjoy the Holiday Season !
In our modern world, Holiday brings stress and overwhelm. We loose ourselves in over-planning, over-spending, over-indulging, and over-committing.
Ladies, before getting into craziness mode, let’s re-evaluate how you want to spend your time, decide what this new Holiday Season will mean to you. In other words:
HOW DO YOU WANT TO FEEL THIS HOLIDAY SEASON?
WOMEN ARE THE PRINCIPAL BEARERS OF TRADITION
As we are fast approaching what is well known only to be the busiest time of year, but also the most stressful. There’s shopping to be done, deadlines to be met, friends and family obligations to be fulfilled. Tension and anxiety often runs high.
AS THE KEEPERS OF SACRED RITUALS + TRADITIONS, WE ALSO HAVE THE RIGHT TO CREATE NEW ONES.
This holiday season I invite you to come discover with time for personal peace, healing, slow pace, the right to say “No, thank you”.
We will learn how to prioritize love in a season that has become entangled by money and “perceived” obligations. There will be laughter, honesty, fire and light.
We will transform and we will create tradition and release tradition.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Desire mapping is a process that helps you surrender your current limiting beliefs (the ones that no longer serve you), and make room for more of the good stuff you want in your life.
This is the new, holistic way to plan your Holiday Season & New Year’s Resolutions.
Every activity and exercise we will do supports you in discovering your core desired feelings (CDF’s as you’ll get to know them better).
WHO IS IT FOR?
- Have you ever been so caught up with decking the halls and filling up the trays of petits fours during the party that you were unable to enjoy heartfelt connections with your guests and family? Then this Pop Up Workshop is for you.
- If you know deep within you that the holidays can hold great beauty, if we clear away the brambles of stress and consumerism, it can get back to one of its original purpose and feeling : gratitude, joy, togetherness. Then this workshop will make your heart sing
- Every end of the year with Solstice Day, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s, you come up with your to-do lists, resolutions, bucket lists, and strategic plans — all the stuff your want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. And yet, you still feel empty and spinning your wheels. Keep reading.
- If you feel paralyzed and you don’t know who you are and/or where to go from there, if answering the simple question “what do you like to do?” send you in complete panic mode, something important is happening here.
- If you feel you are pushing yourself to meet someone else’s expectations: The Great Mom, The Best Host, The Patient Wife or The Forgiving Friend to name a few, stay with me, please know that you are doing no one a favor.
- If you feel overwhelmed with commitments, responsibilities, activities, and well, during this Holiday Season and in your life in general and you had kinda’ lost that intimate, centered connection with yourself, keep on reading.
- If you feel there’s “more” to the Holiday Season but still looking at what “more” can be, you are at the right place.
- If you’ve had enough of trying to trick yourself into happiness for the past New Year’s Eve through blurry affirmations of bucket-listing your hopes into some distant future, then you’re ready for The Desire Map.
A FEW THINGS YOU WILL GAIN FROM THIS WORKSHOP:
- LEARN ~ By the end of the workshop, you’ll have identified your Core Desired Feelings (your “CDF’s”). This will be your new compass for navigating this Holiday Season. You’ll feel more in tune with your inner voice and more equipped now that you have the simple tool of checking in with how you want to feel. No more feelings of overwhelm.
- REDEFINE ~ We’ll redefine your existing thoughts about feelings and goal-setting around Christmas and New Year [how you can lighten your load and experience more freedom in this busy time of the year (yes, it’s possible)].
- EXPLORE ~ We’ll take a look at five life areas together: Lifestyle + Livelihood, Creativity + Learning, Body + Wellness, Relationships + Society, Essence + Spirituality, and see what’s working, what’s not and what you want more/less of (this is illuminating to say the least).
- CONNECT ~ You’ll meet a new group of like-minded women.
- INDULGE ~ We will co-create a perfectly beautiful and sacred space to do this work – think sage clearings, intentions, playlists, candles and chocolate.
- CREATE ~ We’ll make a Vision board with your core desire feelings to help you stay very intentional with your time this Holiday Season.
- EXPAND ~ We’ll work through your old patterns and stories that you may have inherited without being fully conscious of it, and replace them with new, powerful ways of being and feeling.
- SHARE ~ There is something really powerful about women coming together and sharing on a particular topic.
- RITUALS ~ We’ll have a supercharged ritual ceremony to celebrate + anchor in your new CDF’s and goals, so you’ll be reminded about all the goodness you uncovered, in the days, weeks and months to come.
WHEN WE ARE ALIGNED WITH “WHY” WE ARE DOING WHAT WE ARE DOING, OUR WORLD TRANSFORMS. WE BECOME A LAMPLIGHTER FOR OTHERS. IN TODAY’S WORLD THIS IS MY PERSONAL WISH FOR THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.
Those are the 5 areas of your life we will explore together to help you navigate how you most want to feel over this holiday season.
Feeling good will be your subliminal message during our time together and as you will leave the workshop.
“We cannot change what we are not aware of, and once we are aware, we cannot help but change” – Sheryl Sandberg
