A HEALING CANCER RETREAT IN JANUARY
There is a cancer healing retreat at the Mana retreat centre in Coromandel from 11-18 January. It encompasses one week of transformational work mixed with pleasure and fun, in a nice healing environment, providing nurturing that your body, mind and soul needs led by Jasmina Kovacev.
As Jasmina says, the word “cancer” creates worries, fears, even panic among those who are diagnosed. The shock of diagnosis can be as threatening as the diagnosis itself. Emotional support leads to a much better quality of life. The body can often reactivate self-healing once the emotional blockages are removed, and coping skills are implemented.
I can thorough recommend Jasmina’s therapeutic skills http://www.eft-emofree.com/cancer-retreat.html
WHAT SPINS YOUR WHEELS?
With the New Year upon us, I thought it was a great time to talk about one of the well-known impacts of cancer (or other significant crises) for many people. i.e. now that I’ve had a life and death experience, what – if anything – do I want to do differently with the rest of my life? Cancer does bring ‘life’ into sharp focus.
After a cancer diagnosis in 2007, a friend and I were talking about everything involved. And then she said “and of course you must be thinking about what spins your wheels?” That expression has stayed with me and is relevant equally to the cancer journey and normal life.
What spins your wheels? Am I doing what I am meant to be doing? Do I love my life? Am I living my life purpose? These are all good questions and there is only person that can answer the question. YOU. There are however a number of good resources to assist you with the process:
- At New Year’s or anytime, we can reflect and write down what our dreams are. Or write a list of things that we love doing and do them.
- Phil Kerslake writes about life audits in his book Life, Happiness and Cancer. At any point in the cancer journey (or just life), we can take stock of whether we are really on the path that we really want to be on http://www.lifepaths.co.nz/
- Serena Star Leonard talks about consciously designing your life and lifestyle. Lifestyle Design is the art of creating a lifestyle to suit your wants and needs. It is all about choices; it is all about YOU choosing how YOU want to live http://www.retireyoung.com.au/
- Rachel Taylor focuses on getting clear on life purpose. Do you know without a doubt what your Life Purpose is? The truth is…most people don’t. We’re laughed at for ‘dreaming’ and praised for being ‘practical’. Before long, we’ve lost touch with our true self. Instead, we end up doing what everyone else thinks is important. But you can uncover your Path to Purpose again with your passions, gifts, and dreams http://rachelmaetaylor.com/
So, what do you want to do with your next years? How do you want to live your life? What spins your wheels?
I am sure that I have many decades to live but it’s time to put the wheel spinning in to action.
