My Song

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.

Mindfulness, Meditation & Positive Living Classes

IMG_7887
Well of Being’s Sharon Vogiatzi runs Meditation, Mindfulness & Positive Living classes in Kildare, Dublin and online.
Classes include mindfulness, meditation, breathing techniques and gentle movement/stretching.
Due to the current circumstances, Sharon has been doing online classes via Zoom. 
It’s definitely a time for being present, meditating, breathing and learning some new tools and tips to alleviate fear and anxiety and to cultivate more calm, peace, happiness & fun in our lives. And we can do this from the comfort of our own homes!
So many benefits to meditating regularly!
Need to unwind at the end of a busy day? These 30-minute meditation classes will bring you straight into relaxation, rest, release, restoration & presence.
During the classes, you will be guided by an experienced facilitator in calming breathing exercises, mindfulness, guided meditation and visualisation as well as some very gentle movement/stretching.

Whether you’re a beginner and would like to try it or if you would simply like to practice more and be led by an experienced facilitator, join in: 8:30-9pm Wednesdays for six weeks starting 9th September and finishing 14th October 2020.

€50 for the entire course or €10 pay-per-class.

You can pay via Revolut (0871411662) or Paypal.me/sharonvogiatzi or ask me for my IBAN.

I’m looking forward to meditating with you :)

Please also give me your email address so I can send you the Zoom link. You can reach me at info@wellofbeing.ie or 0871411662 (also if you’ve any questions).
If it’s your first time using Zoom, please check that it’s working before the class begins, find a quiet comfortable spot where you can sit (and lie down if you like) and light a candle and/or some incense to create a zen vibe. You can leave your camera on or off and I will mute all participants so we will not be disturbed.
I can also record sessions (only my face and name will be visible in the recordings) if you cannot attend live. Just ask for the Zoom recording.
Also, as part of the World Wellness Weekend, I’ll be doing a meditation class 3.30-4.30pm in Solas Bhride on Sunday 20th September 2020 (click on the link to secure your space): Book Meditation Now 
Join in for some guided meditation, mindfulness, visualisation, breathwork & gentle movement ‍♀️‍♂️meditation-solas-bhride

 

To-Do

Today I attend a Life Coach for a much-needed, sort of dreaded business coaching session. We speak about timelines and deadlines. The Life Coach draws a “To-Do” box on the whiteboard. We also discuss ideas, fears and things that are weighing me down.

I confess that I’ve really been beating up on myself lately. I’ve been comparing myself unfavourably to others, calling myself names and believing that I’m “less than”. My mean streak is at a peak.

Open your Heart

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.

Energy

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.

Flow

Tonight at an Amber Run gig, I watch as the band becomes immersed in playing. There’s something riveting about witnessing other people express their creativity and passion. It’s exciting to be invited to share the experience.

The vibration of the music pulses through my body. The beat of the drums pulls me in and spurs me on. My hips begin to sway. I raise my arms and close my eyes.

Basic Human Needs

Last night, I read Marianne Power’s most recent post on the six basic human needs. Yes, it may seem like I’ve become obsessed with this woman and maybe I have. But not in a lesbian way. In an admiring, respecting, fellow-blogger-and-self-help-enthusiast way.

Anyway, I found Marianne’s post really interesting. Marianne is regurgitating self-improvement guru Tony Robbins’ work and I, in turn, am regurgitating Marianne’s work. But we’re all putting our own spin, experience and insights into it.

Cheerleader

Some of you will be familiar with a popular song of the moment, “Cheerleader” by OMI. Well, up until Sunday night, I thought the lyrics went something like this: “Oh I think that I found myself a cherry air.” 

Which makes no sense at all but I happily sang along anyway while enjoying the sunshiney sound of the trumpet.

Release Me

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:
