I hope that the new year is off to a promising start for all of you! I plan to set aside some quiet time later this week to reflect on 2017's happenings and glean what I can from the year. I thought I'd have some time to do this before the new year but of course I underestimated the amount of time and energy that I'd devote to holiday happenings. How human of me...
Do any of you feel like you have to carve out quiet space to reflect and make sense of things before fully feeling free to move on to the next phase/age/year of life? I'm certainly in the business of "meaning making" and for me, meaning often comes when I've carefully considered and reflected on my experiences and learned from them what I can. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to a reflection date with myself.
With the coming of the new year, I'm excited to announce that I have moved my practice to a new office space within a holistic wellness center called Delta Mind Body. I started seeing clients there just today!
The timing was perfect as my former office building of 2 1/2 years will be undergoing renovations. The new space feels practically tailor-made to accommodate the variety of services I offer as there is an office for individual therapy and relationship counseling as well as a large room for group therapy, workshops, and meditation and yoga classes. Delta Mind Body also offers massage therapy, cupping, nutrition counseling, and several ongoing yoga classes each week. I have longed to offer services within a space dedicated to treating the whole person: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual, and the timing could not be better.
I'm planning to put the spacious yoga room to good use very soon as I launch a new women's circle in a couple of weeks. Each week we'll gather together with an opening guided meditation for grounding and clarity. Then, we'll hold space for what I like to call "Big Talk."
Is anyone else craving to move past all of the small talk and truly connect and be seen?
The circle will be a safe and non judgmental space for sharing whatever is on your mind, confiding, expressing that which needs expressing, seeking clarity, offering support, letting go, taking in, bearing witness. We'll conclude each circle with a 30 minute restorative yoga practice where we'll actively surrender our tension to the force of gravity to emerge lighter and more centered.
I'll send out more details next week! Keep an eye on your inbox.
Wishing you abundance for the new year,
