Wellness Plan Workshop starts on the next New Moon

Due to your emails I'm opening registration today for the second Wellness Plan Workshop.

Begins on the next New Moon
24th October 2014
The new moon is the perfect time to manifest what you wish to have in your life.
It is a wonderful time to introduce new beginnings, projects and desires.

The Wellness Plan is a workshop that has 8 weekly PDF'S that will be emailed to you
This workshop focuses on you, all about you  Each week the workshop will cover a topic. Often the topics build on each other which will be delivered by email. The Wellness Plan workshop is an eclectic therapeutic approach with a naturopathy flavor. I am a naturopath in training, currently in the second year of a three year degree. (All workshop fees go towards my naturopath study fees and books)
The goal of the workshop is to encourage positive emotions, thoughts and actions to help you kick start and maintain a state of wellness with the focus of losing weight.
 The workshop topics are:
Tissue salts which may assist weight loss and food cravings
Flower remedies helping you choose which ones you may find helpful including your keynote remedy
Kick start your digestion system
Hydration
Nourishing food which is not about counting calories
Honour your true self learn your element type
Exercise
Sleep, Rest and Gratitude including aromatherapy blends.

Principals of the workshop

                      Naturopathy treats the whole person; mind, body and soul
I believe in preventative medicine which is the building and maintenance of health rather than fighting the disease.
My role for this workshop is as a teacher. I will share my knowledge from my naturopathy studies, offer advice, guidance and support you, in you, taking self-responsibility of your health.
Throughout the workshop, fell free to email me with your questions.I will  reply to all comments every morning.
One thing I ask from you Please take action. Don’t just read the weeks email, instead take action. You will notice that this is all I am asking from you and I will repeat this over and over. 

Sometimes we need a little kick start to get back on the path to wellness and this is what this workshop intends to do. It is not a diet. It is a Wellness Plan. It will give you a plan so if you ever fall off the "wagon" just go back to the Wellness Plan and start again or pick up where you fell off. I understand life does get in the way and we are all thrown curve balls where the last thing we all want to do is often think wellness let alone practice it
I often find when something new is being undertaken life throws road blocks at us. We need to stop and cope with whatever as best as we can. This often means we go back to old habits, which are comfortable for us, possibly not the best for us but comfortable.
But with the tools I will be sharing with you, you can just go back to the Wellness Plan and carry on focusing on your health when you are ready
 Necessary details:
Cost is $55.00 payable via paypal or internet banking 
Additional costs – optional but I am sure you may wish to purchase flower remedies, tissue salts and essential oils mentioned in the workshop to try.
A journal to record your progress.

Begins 24th October 2014.

Nine Weeks ago


I ran my very first workshop - talk about scary.

 But isn't it always scary going outside your comfort zone?
  

I've had some really lovely feedback from the workshop and one of the ladies has given her permission to share her email  on the blog, as I thought you may all like to have a read too. Sure gave me a buzz.

 Thank you Leanne.
 I'm really going to miss my Tuesday morning motivation reads. It was always with great excitement that I checked my e-mails even before I was dressed for the day. I have learnt that it all takes steps to improve health & it's up to me to make them. I feel more patient & clear headed. I have decided to cut as much processed food out of my family life as possible & now that I've got more energy I can easily whip up a batch of muffins for tomorrows school lunch while preparing tea. Everything seems to be flowing better (hard to put into words, but that what it feels like)
I have lost 4kgs. I know that it could have easily been more but with my birthday & my two children's falling in the 8 weeks & going away in the holidays, life was more of enjoying the moments & food lol. I spent about two years on the same weight & no matter what I tried it wouldn't budge. Now I know that it will come off & more importantly feel good & healthy as well..
Most importantly for my health I have cut back on my nightly wine. I don't need it to relax anymore & don't miss it. I still have the odd wine on the weekend with my husband. V

I will be running this workshop again soon email me  of your interest. However it will not be in a blogging format. Instead it will be via PDF emailed to you each week. I've realised many of you who follow the blog don't actually blog so in PDF format is going to be much easier for you.

I'm currently writing a weight loss workshop targeting body shapes (apple, pear, hourglass, rectangle)

I'm using characters out of Downton Abbey which is hugely fun! I'm currently writing the Mrs Patmore body type from all my naturopathy learning. This workshop will be a follow on from the Wellness plan (which is a Pre-requisite to get full benefit out of the body shape one) anyway I'll share more when I've finished writing it

I just love how Lesley Nicol plays Mrs Patmore (my fav character) It's great to see Downton Abbey back on NZ TV

Pancho and I have our routine, He goes into this corner of the cattery and gets his brushing which he adores. Then he gets his dinner of fancy feast, Cats do so like routine don't they

The head bunting of the brush is all part of the routine.
