Finding your Hygge!
The Danish Way to Wellbeing
Would you like to bring more warmth, comfort and balance to your home, your body and your spirit?
Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) is a Danish term that means to create a warm and cozy life by doing simple things that enrich your spirit and bring joy; resulting in a feeling of contentment and well-being. Throughout Scandinavia,
Hygge is infused into the way people entertain, cook, dine, exercise, travel, dress, decorate and take care of themselves and others. It’s a gentle way of living that soothes the soul and adds meaning to each day.
This workshop will have you immersed in the Hygge lifestyle through hands-on exercises designed to spark joy, inspire fresh ideas, lighten the heart and offer simple, tangible ways to infuse your daily life with the cozy philosophy of Hygge.
Simplify! Transforming your Life the Japanese Way.
Would you like to learn simplifying solutions for your home, your health, your head and your heart?
We think that the more we have, the happier we will be. We never know what tomorrow might bring, so we collect and save as much as we can. But living simply is essential to being able to enjoy abundance, minus the stress.
In Japan the influence of Zen Buddhism instills a desire for simplicity. For them, less is more. At this workshop learn how to simplify your life through letting go:
Letting go of possessions
Letting go of bad eating habits
Letting go of stressful ways of thinking
The Mediterranean Secrets to a Long and Healthy Life!
Would you like to discover how to incorporate Sardinian wellbeing secrets into your own life?
Why are there so many people over the age of 100 living in Sardinia?
Is it what they eat?
Is it their friends and families?
Is it their inner strength and resilience?
Join us to discover their secrets and how you can implement them into your own life:
Adjust your way of eating - Plenty of fish, fresh fruit and vegetables, herbs, greens (even weeds!), beans and lots of extra virgin olive oil.
Connect to your family & friends - Social connections and family are important for a long life. Just the simple act of talking with your neighbours or sharing a coffee with a friend is enough.
How to be more productive - Working and feeling that you are contributing is important. This can be a job or other activities such as helping in the home, cooking, shopping, volunteering, helping with family or working on a project.
Physical activity and mindfulness - Walking, gardening, shopping, housework – they all count. And don’t forget to get some quiet time during the day for some mindfulness or meditation.
This five hour workshop is designed to be thought-provoking, uplifting, enriching and fun and will include a meditation session and lunch.
You will float out the door with a deeper understanding of how to invite these wellbeing secrets into your life... with a gift bag full of goodies tucked under your arm.
$95 - includes lunch and $5 donation to the CWA to help our rural sisters.
