Painting of Douglas Magnus and Joy

My Friend, Douglas Magnus and I were sharing a moment on my mother’s bench facing the glorious beach of Jeffrey’s Bay.  We were chatting about the Journey of Life and Honouring my Mom’s passing.  It was a moment to be remembered and we took this photo of us smiling up into the camera held arm’s length away, hoping to capture the sense of Friendship and Quietness that settles when one stops the rush of life and reflects of the Magnificence of our Life Journey.

Douglas has been such an inspiration to so many people.  He has a “terminal” diagnosis, but he is too busy being alive and sharing this with others to just let go and GO.

He GETS IT.

He sees the sunsets, the dawn the clouds and Light.  He surfs in his favorite place in Jeffrey’s Bay, like he has done for decades.  He has said farewell to friends who thought he would be leaving first.  He blesses the lives of all those he encounters with his poems and writing.

Douglas is one of the MAGNIFICENT and God Loves him.

I am proud to call you my Friend dear Douglas and I hold you in my Heart always x

Emotional Intelligence Workshop for Teenagers

Emotional Intelligence Workshop for Teenagers

                                                              Jeffrey’s Bay

16 June 2012

When Thomas Edison – inventor of the Light Bulb – was a boy, his teachers told him he was too stupid to learn anything.

Thomas Edison – best known for inventing the incandescent lightbulb in 1879.

The most significant form of Intelligence we can attain is Emotional Intelligence as this equips us to perform and succeed in all walks of life.

Our young people are losing out on this incredible learning as more and more time is given to “book learning” as schools and our society tend to attribute a person’s worthiness to their level of scholarly achievement.

Yet, time and time again, we hear of entrepreneurs and inventors who have achieved great wealth and success regardless of the formal learning.

Beethoven’s music teacher once said of him, “…as a composer, he is hopeless”.

Beethoven - famous composer

 

Teenager deserve to be fully equipped to manage life in all situations and this is possible when Emotional Intelligence is understood and practiced.

 This one day workshop will teach the valuable concepts and skills to open this awareness.

*Self Discipline    *Stress Management   *Communication    *Life Skills   *Leadership   *Self-Awareness & Self-Control  

Saturday 16 June, 2012  *  9:00 am to 4:00 pm

 R200 per person

Participants to bring their own lunch, refreshments and snacks.  Also a big cushion to sit on and clipboard or notebook and pen.

Please call   Joy 079 180 7639   for more information and booking.

This is such a valuable workshop and I am hoping that parents and teenagers will learn how these techniques can bring about positive changes that will inspire all relationships in the home, school and later in the business setting.

Many Excellent organizations, like VW, offer their employees this training.  It makes such a huge difference that it is seen as one of the essential courses business globally like to offer.

When we are able to move in the world from a core authenticity and responsibility, we are able to succeed in all endeavors.

I have researched this topic in depth as part of my studies with the University of Denver and presented workshops in Colorado, USA and South Africa to parents, educators and young people.

My motivation is to equip people to be the best that they can be, as this is the gift that impacts us all on a day to day basis.  

What will we be learning?

Self – Awareness

Self – Discipline

The Golden Moment – how to recognize it and use it to improve the outcome in all situations

How to control your own impulses

Regulate emotions

How to use the information in many settings

How to help others to be the best they can be, simply by being aware and better control oneself

How will you know you have begun the practice of emotional intelligence ?

  • You will be more tolerant.
  • You will take a Golden Moment.
  • You will stop blaming others.
  • You will appreciate people’s differences.
  • You will be a resource and a role model for others.
  • You will smile more to yourself and others.
  • You will start celebrating how far you have come.

Life is too precious to waste it.

Working Through Fear – Using Breath and Awareness

  1. Guided Connections to bring us back to Inner Peace with Joy Truscott (click picture for link)

    Guided Connections to bring us back to Inner Peace with Joy Truscott (click picture for link)

    Breathe deeply in and out 3 times deeply. Allow your exhale to be slightly longer and softer than your inhale.

  2. Feel into your body and notice any part where you feel tightness, constriction, blockages, numbness, pain or fear.
  3. Bring your loving awareness to this part of your body or place inside of you, and slowly breathe there. Make contact with the pain or fear, and welcome it
  4. On your next breath imagine the arms of the Divine deeply embracing you. Feel the holding, feel the breath of God on your skin and hear the whispering of comfort in your ear
  5. Allow yourself to be soothed; allow any fear or pain to be transmuted by the embrace of the Divine
  6. On your next in breath, begin to notice the softening of any blockages or tightness, and bring the energy of love – the embrace of the divine – to that area. Know that it’s reminding you that you are not alone; you are always held; and you are One with everything.

Just Remember This:

  1. Breathe into fear (or pain)
  2. Breathe out love
  3. Breathe into love
  4. Breathe out fear (or pain)

Please do not let this opportunity pass you by … if you are concerned about affording the workshop, please speak to me.  I have witnessed incredible, positive transformations with participants and I bring this workshop to you with great Love and Humility for the benefit that it allows. 

I recently presented this workshop to participants from The Integrated Health Centre in Port Elizabeth and some of the participants have been journeying with huge health issues. 

These are some of the comments made by participants from this weekend:  Such an honour to read.

 

“Thank you for being warm and accepting.  I felt safe and comfortable and felt that you were sincere and authentic.  Also this weekend has taught me to use the tools and techniques to further understand and accept myself”

 

“I loved your exuberance, your lightness in being and your true sense of holding us in Love and compassion.”

 

“I most benefited from …. Everything being so positive, full of love and light.  A lot to take home with me, to read about again, but also so much I can use and put into practice in my everyday life.”

 

“From this workshop I have gained further crystallization of my current journey – especially Being Present”.

 

Experiencing Life Creatively is a program that was designed to help you find the Deep Inner Peace of Connecting to your own Unique Life Journey – witnessing the journey from the Higher Perspective.  

This workshop has been presented in Colorado, USA, Jeffrey’s Bay, South Africa, Plettenberg Bay, McGregor and Port Elizabeth. 

What others have said about the experience:

“Feeling Great.  So much happier! Handling things better at home”. 

“I gained a sense of perspective, renewed purpose to honour my hearts desire.  This workshop was a blessing”. 

“Through this workshop I have gained a deeper insight into myself and the life path I have travelled”.

The exercise with the child photo showed me that the child within is still there; eager to explore and quite happy being just as ‘she’ is – confident of other’s approval”.

“This workshop has given me insight, encouragement, love and support as well as new hope and energy”.

“I have accepted the fact that my purpose is not static and I am able to identify my behaviour patterns as a result of the exercises.  I am beginning to recognise negative thought patterns”.

“Thank you for the journey and for re-igniting my enthusiasm for life and all its potential”.

Revive Mind, Body and Soul as you work in alignment with your inner compass.  This weekend will empower you to begin making changes that will enable you to live a more relaxed, happy and authentic life, regardless of your life situation.

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVES TO:
Medical drugs, which do not heal…, which can be dangerous…?
not being heard…, being treated like a statistic…?

I was also fascinated to learn about the M-Water and Core Water which is also known as primordial water / perfect Living Water, which is a source of electrons (i.e. energy!) and has profound effects on oxygenation, acid-alkaline balancing, detoxification and the balancing of positive–negative charges of cell membranes.

Charles can tell one in detail about the quantum science behind this refreshing and re-hydrating water. To read more click on the link below
