True You Discovery Retreat – May 3-5, 2013 – St Petersburg Beach, FL

28 Mar

I am thrilled to be associated with the True You Discovery Retreat we have scheduled for May 3-5, 2013 at St Petersburg Beach, Florida.  It is shaping up to be an incredible weekend of growth, rejuvenation, discovery and community – by and for anyone who wants to become the TrueYou© that you are intended to be!

Together with my partners:  Carmen Rosaly Brewer (an inspiring Reiki master and 5th Generation Psychic Healer), Jenny Crispo (successful life coach), and Lesley Hicks (motivational speaker extraordinaire), this Friday night to Sunday noon “retreat” is really a gift to yourself.  You’ll find out how the soothing of the ocean breezes, yoga by master teachers on the beach at sunrise, and workshops by our leadership team can re-energize and renew your life no matter where you are at in life.  You’ll emerge inspired to take on life’s challenges with new vigor – and energized to become the happiest you’ve ever been!

Radio show links:  In case you are wondering what this is all about, Carmen and I did a radio show to describe and promote the event the past two weeks.  Click on the date below to listen to the shows where you’ll get a better idea of what the weekend is all about!

We will also be “live” on the air this Thursday, April 4, 2013 from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm EDT – click <here> to listen live!

trueyou I will be conducting two workshops at this exciting discovery event – see the photos below (bottom of this post) for full program and event details. Join us in St Petersburg Beach May 3-5, 2013!

Here are the two workshops I’ll be giving as 45 minute sessions available several times on Saturday May 4, 2013:

Creating TrueYou©  Agreements

The TrueYou© is the authentic you – beautiful, sincere, talented, happy, giving and loving – yet we often feel we fall short with our weight, looks, status, relationships, happiness.  Believing we are already authentic (and that we fall short of perfection) is a creation of our ego and our programming (from birth) that obscures us from knowing (and truly loving) the TrueYou.   This workshop is based on the best breakthrough teachings available today including don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements, Cheri Huber’s There is Nothing Wrong with You, and the work of Deepak Chopra, Eckert Tolle, and others. Through exercises and interaction, learn how to create new TrueYou agreements that work for you in your life.  TrueYou agreements work to alter your attitude, your outlook, and ultimately your level of happiness that celebrate the wonder of the TrueYou!

Calm, Confident Communication

The Fear of Public Speaking ranks second to the fear of dying in many popular surveys and if you tremble at the thought of having to present your ideas at a formal or informal gathering – whether it is giving a toast at a wedding or being put on the spot at a meeting – this workshop is for you. Learn tried and true methods that will leave you feeling calm and confident (even if your knees are shaking) used by leaders and public speakers throughout the world.  You’ll learn tips and take home ideas to make you a more confident and polished TrueYou at any gathering.

The Reality “Fog”…

16 Nov

FogYour life is YOUR story – and whatever you experience and feel is your reality.  Personally, the past few months have had its share of ups and downs dealing with false friends, real estate agents, inspectors, banks, movers, and various sundry “characters” in my story.  The good news is that I emerged from it all with a new beginning (having sold my “albatross” house – far too big and far too costly!) and now claim a wonderful waterfront apartment as my new home.

Just like yours, my story is laden with emotions, experiences, and observations that are unique to me.  No one else can tell my story or your story like either of us can, yet we often lose sight of this.  Frequently, we get caught up in thinking that we know another person’s story as well as our own.  I call this the reality “fog“.

As a case in point, last Saturday’s St. Petersburg Times featured an article about a  78-year old woman whose at-home death four months ago was only discovered this week by a property manager.  The article stated that the woman lived alone and that “there’s no evidence that there was anyone in her life as far back as 1992,” according to a police official.

The relevance of the article to my topic concerns not the woman’s death or the circumstance, but rather the judgements and observations by virtual strangers.  “She really was as much of a hermit as somebody can be… she really did not want anybody to come inside ever. It’s a sad thing for sure,”  remarked the managing member of her apartment complex.  A landlord from 16 years ago said “She kept her head down and walked fast and worked hard… I think she was upset that she didn’t have a family or wistful that she lost touch.”

Personally I find it astonishing that people who barely knew Joan Greeley (the woman) would so eagerly think that they knew her story well enough to tell it themselves.   Certainly the story reads better as a human interest story by including observations, but it illustrates that reality in absence of facts is really just “fog.”

I believe we can change this situation!  Before you judge another, get to know the people in your life personally – take an interest in their life and their loves.  Truly listen to their story and be patient to hear their perspective and insights.  Then and only then can you or I begin to see through the fog to envision their reality.

I know that I do not want others to tell my story without listening to what I have to say – how about you?  Let us give others the same courtesy and let them tell us their story!

Have an awesome week of listening, learning, and living!

Carol
