Slowing Down While Keeping Up

Do you feel like there’s never enough time?  That you’re straining under the weight of your commitments and responsibilities?  Do you long for a state of flow or a sense of joy, ease, and abundance?  Do you struggle to find time to do what you want and wish you didn’t have to spend so much of your energy doing what you have to

Luckily for us, we don’t have to find a way to add more hours to the day or drink ever-more caffeinated beverages.  Instead, we can discover abundant time and energy if we find a new way to approach our goals.

Instead of seeking fulfillment by doing more and moving faster, we can find joy by focusing on what’s most important to us and prioritizing activities that satisfy our needs in the here and now.  When we do that, we feel more energized and inspired.  We begin to feel freer to let go of the temptation to do it all and say no to commitments that don’t make us come alive.  And as the process of reaching our goals becomes at least as fulfilling as achieving them, we’re more able slow down and enjoy the ride.

Through discussion and hands-on exercises, this workshop will offer:

  • Ideas for how to tune in to what’s important and meaningful to you.
  • A framework for understanding which activities will best satisfy your different types of needs.
  • Customized practices for working with the challenges and habits that can keep you over-busy and overwhelmed.
  • Connection to other amazing people who want to slow down while still achieving great things.

Please bring pen and paper, an open mind, and a willingness to share your experience and wisdom.
