What changes when we fill our own cup & give from the overflow rather than from our reserves?
My 28 years as a helping professional means I've been nurtured back from burnout more times than I care to admit! My truth is that putting self-nurture at the top of my list means I have the energy for what & who I love, personally & professionally.
5 years ago I left a much cherished & long-tenured role as a group facilitator, yoga & meditation instructor after being injured. I realized that I hadn't paid attention to the nudges my body gave me to slow down & take better care, so my vitality suffered & I took a bad fall.
Over 7 years of Body-Centered Coaching & Hakomi therapy training, I've formed a friendship with my body, learned it's subtle language & listened more to what it has to say. Turning toward this long-neglected friend felt overwhelming at first, so I found playful ways to stay with it. With the guidance & support of people like right-brain business genius Jennifer Lee of Artizen Coaching, I crafted tactile self-coaching tools to help tune in, move forward [or rest up] with the good grace & perfect timing of Mother Nature herself!
Through this process, the 'lens' I saw my own life through became less critical. I began to see myself with the awe & curiousity with which I generally take in the natural world - where each stage of growth - like seasons in the garden & forest - is valued, enjoyed & appreciated. This important principle of organicity helps me trust that the difficulties we all experience truly are a natural part of our own growth process. These self-coaching tools support individuals & groups through times of overwhelm, compassion fatigue, recovery and in-your-face challenges of an ever-changing world.
If like me, you'd love to ease back in the saddle a bit, reflect on [& give yourself a nod for] all that you've lived & use a more forgiving lens to feel more kindness towards yourself - sign up to access cost-free recordings of the 'Fill Your Cup' Video Series, where I interview peers & pros on what happened when they decided [or were forced to] put self-nurture at the top of the list. The second video from each day of the series has a guided practice from each contributor!
Body-mind self-coaching methods are brilliant at liberating us from the grip of old, outdated stories so we have more free reign in our day-to-day. Rather than feeling stiff & stuck in knee-jerk reaction to challenges, we become wonderfully adaptable in the face of change. If better understanding your body tension patterns so they stop costing you precious time, energy or relationships makes sense - A Nurtured Life Path of Resilience training for individuals & groups clears what's blocking our natural energy flow to replenish our reserves & banish burn out for good.
A Nurtured Life's TLC events & sessions offer tactile, self-coaching tools that encourage a felt sense of the earth's support; improve energy flow in the body; attune to the nurture of any space; move from heart center; find balance in connection, stay present to our purpose & experience a restful spirit.
Each of these 7 elements serve as a valuable starting point towards a kinder relationship with ourselves. Each step in this direction widens the path toward a more nurtured world.
