Get Over Her!
May 9 (internet program): I'll be the featured guest speaker on Lesbian Love Talk, Barb Elgin's weekly internet radio show, which airs at 8 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday nights, with programs posted online to replay anytime. I'll be addressing the importance of letting go of a past relationship. Come hear (and if you wish, call in and ask) about not being a victim, getting to forgiveness, creating closure by yourself, and more. Check out Barb's Lesbian Love Talk show!
Note: If you're a straight woman or a man, there's little I'll say on this show that doesn't translate--switch the pronouns as needed.
Free Exploration Sessions:
from 60 minutes to 30
For the past three years, I've built my business in part by offering free 60-minute sessions to give people an experience of my work. I also consider it a time tithe, as I offer the session to anyone who wants it, even if they have no intention of coaching with me. I love these sessions and find it deeply gratifying to sit with someone, anyone, and send them away with a new perspective on life, themselves, their circumstances—whatever—so that they can do it differently, connect to all that supports them, come closer to self-love. ...
It's come to this: more people show up wanting these sessions than I can properly make time for in the context of my client load. I've therefore cut them down from 60 to 30. It works! To get the free session, just fill out the contact form on my website.
The Practitioner Is In: Try 15!
Even half this time span works. I'm doing 15-minute sessions at my wonderful food coop in Ithaca, NY, as part of their new The Practitioner Is In program. I'm one of the rotating practitioners showing up on a Wednesday night every other month from 7 to 9. I'll be there again on April 10. Call 607.273.9392 to sign up for a 15-minute slot.
Fun with Facebook!
In March, I posted something that got 85 LIKES, almost twice as many as any other post yet. Hmmm. Here it is for you to see for yourself and help me contemplate why it struck such a chord:
Surrendering what's not yours to mind is not a blanket, one-time event. It's a life's work, a practice, unfolding now and now and now. You will mentally pick up and start toying with any number of things that aren't yours to manage. You will worry about outcomes that you can't possibly (and don't need to) control. The trick is to catch yourself and come back to what's yours. Where you have something to think through, a dialogue to open, an action to take—great. Where what happens next has nothing to do with you, where it's up to someone else or the workings of the Universe—surrender! You'll love the relief.
