Change your Story Workshop

25 May 2019

Golden Light Meditation and Healing Centre
Padfield Road, Padfield Park, Pinetown, KZN
R350
More Details
What Story are you telling?
Through our words, bodies, actions and energy we are constantly giving a message – to others, to the universe, and to ourselves. These messages stem from deep-seated beliefs, interpretations, conditions and our experience of ourselves and the world.
I call them stories.
These STORIES affect what we do, what we say, how we behave, and ultimately, what we create in life.
Thing is, they are often at a subconscious level, or so deeply ingrained we are not even aware of what they are. Or that we can change them if they are outdated, or not serving us.
Are your stories empowering you, or do they stem from limiting thoughts, experiences and negative perceptions? Do you even know what your stories are?  Learn how to identify them, understand them, and change them if you want.

Venue: Golden Light Meditation and Healing Centre, Padfield Park, Pinetown
Time: 08h30 for 9am (duration 3 hours)
Cost: R350

During this workshop I will give you tools to:
– Become aware when and where you are sabotaging yourself through your “stories”
– Explore what lies behind these stories
– Get rid of beliefs and thoughts that don’t serve you
– Develop and practice mindfulness
– Empower and inspire other people
– Become true to who you are and live a purposeful life
– Create a new, empowered story for YOU!

Saturday 25 May – R350, 9h00 until 12h00
Your ticket includes, tea, coffee, your own “Story Workbook” (discounted to clients, groups over 3 and recent participants as always)

RSVP essential: Only pre-bookings! Please send proof of payment.

Yin Yang Harmonising the Masculine and Feminine Retreat

30 May – 2 June 2019
Nkwazi Tree Lodge
50 Nkwazi Drive, Zinkwazi, KZN North
R3950
More Details
Focusing on wholeness – A retreat for men and women
Regardless of gender, we all contain both masculine and feminine energy. As in nature, we function optimally when these energies are in harmony and a state of flow.

Through teaching, facilitated discussions, awareness, mindfulness and breathing exercises, and practical examples we will explore the integration of your masculine and feminine energies in an empowered, harmonious lifestyle, in flow with your natural rhythms and purpose.

Venue: Nkwazi Tree Lodge, Zinkwazi Beach, KZN North Coast (http://www.nkwazitreelodge.co.za/)
Date: 30 May – 2 June (3 nights)
Cost: R3,950 , discounted if shared.
The venue is meters from the beach, so will include beach sessions.

Retreat focus and intent:
• Harmonizing your masculinity and femininity to be empowering, not destructive
• Archetypes as a way of understanding yourself (and others)
• Being in flow with the natural elements
• You and relationships: empowering, domineering, victimised?
• Outdated “rules” – how condition and tradition lead to collision
• The vital role of subtle energies and how they flow
• Understand and welcome our natural cycles (men and women)
• Self-love and compassion, and dipping into our shadow-side
• Invoke /deepen your spiritually
• Reflect upon your journey of strength, vulnerability and lessons
• Develop and practice mindfulness at a deep level
• Empower, support and inspire others, and make new friends
• Become true to who you are and live a purposeful life
• Rest, refresh and revitalise

Although the retreat is focused on the wholeness of the individual, and favoured by guests attending solo, we also welcome couples wanting to understand, harmonise and perhaps challenge the expression of these aspects in their relationship.

Facilitated by Celeste Du Toit, Transformational NLP Coach, Holistic Therapist, Speaker and seasoned retreat leader.

Having been in a corporate and management environment for years, my strong, action-orientated, goal-driven and focused masculine nature was very evident and served me well. Up to a point.
Embarking on a personal soul-searching journey, focused on finding meaning and purpose, instilling peace and the desire to help and heal others tapped into my feminine energies. I had to develop these, without losing the drive, focus and passion that is part of me. I had to balance yin and yang. Learning how to harmonise these energies helped me – in my business, my relationships, and my life in general – to become empowered yet flowing, strong yet gentle, confident yet supportive, inspiring yet helpful, passionate yet calming.”

Even if financially we’re doing well, we can struggle with self-doubt or low self-esteem, feel trapped in our careers, unfulfilled or not appreciated in our relationships, or feel we’ve lost a sense of purpose, meaning or joy. Especially if we are going through major life changes.
For some it even results in physical or emotional stress or illness.
I specialize in helping you unleash your inner power to find new meaning in their careers, relationships, and in life, and enjoy total wellness and vitality. I believe in holistic wholeness and alignment of Body, Mind and Spirit, and look forward to working and connecting with you.”

History of the Inner Wellness Retreat
This is the 10th consecutive time that the Inner Wellness retreat is being presented at Temenos, testimony to its popularity. Past participants who are referring guests, will be glad to know the success recipe of the structure, flow and content has been retained, as that has proven invaluable. The duration and pace of the retreat also allows for full relaxation, immersion and value gained.
However, we continuously allow for improvements, additions and growth, as well as consideration of participant feedback, therefore some activities may have changed. This allows for an even deeper level of participation, more connection with Self and a profound sense of joy, peace and love.
Repeat participation is also welcomed, as the building blocks of inner wellness, growth, healing and enlightenment are applicable at all levels and areas of your life journey.
Please note we can only accommodate a limited number of participants, due to the intensive nature of the retreat.
