“Stress is wanting something to be different than what it is.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
Sharon will be running a workshop on Releasing Resistance
on Sunday 8th March 2020 in a beautiful space in Balanced Bodies
in The Courtyard in Newbridge.
This workshop will look at what resistance is, why we experience it & the impact it’s having on our lives (in body, mind & even in the choices we make).
This relaxing, insightful and empowering workshop will include mindfulness, meditation, movement, breathing exercises, journaling & guided visualisation along with a short break for tea & snacks.
We will learn where our resistance stems from, we will bring it into the light to acknowledge & heal it, and we will release it so that we can experience freedom, peace, clear vision & a lightness of being.

Do you ever question why you feel bad? The majority of the time I feel bad is as a result of a thought I’ve just entertained.
Without the thought, I’d feel perfectly fine. I’d be in the moment.
I’m delighted to announce the return of my Positive Living classes, starting Thursday 5th May, 8-9pm, in the beautiful Abbins House Holistic Centre, Eyre Street, Newbridge.
For those of you who can’t make Thursday evenings, I’ll be running the course on Wednesday mornings from 10:00-11:00am starting 18th May.
Join me for a fun, inspiring, interactive class where you will meet like-minded people and receive tools and tips to live a happy, peaceful, fulfilling life.
Classes will include mindfulness, meditation, breathing techniques, and exercises which will challenge your thinking, unblock fears and get to know the real you.
The theme of Week 1 is Presence – being present, mindfulness, breathing, meditation, becoming aware of thoughts but not attaching to them.
The theme of week 2 is Thoughts & Feelings – becoming aware of our thoughts, observing but not attaching to them, questioning them, challenging our beliefs, allowing our feelings and uncovering what’s beneath them so we’re no longer ruled by them.
€40 for a 4-week course.
I welcome the first day of summer by attending a yoga and music workshop with musician and yoga teacher Jack Harrison.
We lie down and begin with some breathing exercises. Jack strums his guitar, recites poetry and sings.
A dear friend sent me a link to an interesting TED talk on love and relationships given by Mandy Len Catron. The theme of love and relationships had already been playing on my mind.
After watching the clip, I confessed to my friend that I long to share intimacy and affection with someone of the male variety. I quickly added that I’m just feeling impatient and that I should simply be present.
Today, I decide to spend the whole day chilling out at home. I have a lie-in, I meditate, I eat breakfast.
I reply to a few text messages. I attempt to get cheap car insurance. I have lunch. I read emails. I watch Whip It for the second time.
I awake several times in pain. I might still be able to fit in a workout tomorrow morning before my flight, I try to convince myself.
The following morning, I can barely put weight on my foot. I had felt the twinges in a couple of fitness classes but had chosen to ignore them. I had pushed myself too hard and hadn’t listened to my body. Maybe I need to become more balanced in my approach, I muse philosophically while simultaneously huffing with resistance.
Three things I’m taking away from my Life Coaching session this morning:
1. I’m going to work with the “negative” voice that regularly pipes up with annoying statements like: “You’re not good enough.”
Last night, a Facebook friend shared Doreen Virtue’s post about how the full moon and lunar eclipse is the perfect time to release anything toxic or completed from our lives.
I’m ready to release everything that is no longer serving me well. I release:
Yesterday, I texted a few of my like-minded friends to share my most recent awareness. The importance of other people.
Relationships (with a partner, friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances) accelerate our growth and teach us more about ourselves than all the spiritual retreats, self-help books, and hours of meditation and counselling ever could.
