“An Exploration of Personal Practices and Rituals as Enablers of Wellbeing and Development” with Sue Holland

Sat, 28th February, 2015 from 6:00 PM, in Latimer Park

Some years ago, I experienced a period of being very under-resourced, almost to the point of burn-out. I was fortunate to have some very wise, caring and challenging people around me at that time who encouraged and supported me, so that although I had a significant period of time working and doing things in a fairly sub-optimal way, I didn’t burn-out or become seriously ill. Although the context may be different, I suspect this may resonate for many of you and certainly I have noticed it in my work with clients as they wrestle with competing demands and hugely complex roles.

I now prefer to think of this period as a rich time of change, renewal and growth and even see these cycles in my life, which re-visit from time to time, as the growth engine for me. I know some of these rhythms well enough to predict and support myself more capably than I could at the age of 35. However, I also hold that finding the best practices and rituals for support at each stage and age are a subtle blend of all sorts of things – particularly when I try to hold a holistic picture. Even then, there is also (at least for me…… and I know I’m not alone!) a sense of flux with time, so the practices and rituals that supported me ten years ago are in some cases obsolete or require updating for the modern me!

I’m really intrigued to explore, share and have some fun with this subject with some like-minded travellers! You may use running, yoga, mindfulness, Qigong, journaling, cooking, gardening, prayer, retreat-space, cinema, reading and / or others……………… I’m keen to explore these and in particular, to pay attention to how we know / intuit what is currently ‘fit for purpose’ within our own lives.
