How can I begin anything new with all of yesterday in me

This workshop is for anyone who wants to dedicate some time to reflect on the past year, to let go of what needs to be released and to meet 2024 with heart-full intention. 7

Now in it’s 10th year, this workshop has been refined and edited based on your feedback so that you can find your inspiring, motivating & heart centred WORD for 2024

2023 might have brought you joy and love, it might have brought you struggle, pain and stress or perhaps you had a mixed pot. No matter what your experience was, it is worthwhile now to pause, reflect and spend some time letting go of the last year to welcome in 2024, to leave all that’s happened in the past and take only what you want into this new beginning. 

why years resolutions don't work

Recently you might have been thinking about what New Years Resolutions you might set.

You might be thinking that you’re going to go to the gym more or start a course. I know that was a common one for me, for years I would set the same new years resolutions and every year I thought this would be the year that I would have a body like Elle McPherson , the intellect of a college Professor, I would become an international speaker oh and complete an ironman.

And then each year I’d have given up by February, my goals would be hidden at the back of a drawer and I would spend the rest of the year avoiding the list, lamenting about my failed attempts. I was stuck in a cycle of going nowhere and feeling quite fed up with myself in the process. Yet, I would do the exact same thing the following Jan. This year will be different….until one year I tried something different.

Now I’ve got something for you that works SO much better than New Year’s Resolutions. Every Jan I choose a WORD that will guide me & inspire me. This word is a seed that I will use as a way to set some small and easy intentions for the start of the year. It will guide me as something I want to cultivate – a state of being, and it’s so much it’s simpler,  easier, and its inspiring. It will sustain you through winter into spring and beyond.

A word like THRIVE, FREEDOM, BELIEF, PASSION or GROUNDING, CONNECTION, COMMUNITY – it can be any word you wish. 

This workshop will guide you through the process, so you will leave filled with intention and excitement for what will unfold in 2024.

Ellen Shilling

I have read, studied and practiced wellness for the past 15 years. During that time I have trained with some of the leading experts, gone on retreats all over the world and held some of my own.

I am passionate about anything that helps me to live an easier life! I have studied Life Coaching, Shamanism, Kinesiology, Meditation, Mindfulness, the Celtic Calendar, EFT, TAT and many more! 

I can honestly say that all of them has changed my life! I know that can sound very OTT at times and it wasn’t this sudden flash of light that came down and I was enlightened. Sitting lotus position, emanating love (wouldn’t that be wonderful!) No, it was over time and with patience and commitment I found that old behaviours that didn’t serve me well melted away, negative beliefs no longer held me captive and I wasn’t a victim of my emotions. 

Finally I could breathe and access a peace within I had never felt before and has stayed with me since.
