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.

Mindfulness, Meditation & Wellness Classes

Well of Being‘s Sharon Vogiatzi is an experienced facilitator, both for private and corporate clients. She has been running meditation, mindfulness and wellness classes and workshops in the Leinster area of Ireland and online for many years.
 
MEDITATION CLASSES
Sharon is currently running bi-monthly 30-minute meditation classes via Zoom.
 
These relaxing classes include mindfulness, meditation, visualisation, breathing techniques and gentle movement/stretching.
 
A regular meditation practice sets the tone for your life in general, giving you space and pause to restore your energy, re-centre and connect to presence and calm.
 
The classes are on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7PM Irish time and cost just €5.

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, you’re very welcome.

€5 can be transferred via Revolut: @sharonov81 PayPal: PayPal.me/sharonvogiatzi or if you’d like to pay by card, click here or ask me for my IBAN.

SERENITY MEDITATION

When I’m stuck in my head, judging, remembering or planning, I forget to enjoy what’s right in front of me.
A friend and I discussed this the other day – how we snap in and out of presence.
 
What can help is regulating the nervous system through deep breathing and mindfulness.
 
I’ll be practicing on Monday evening, the 27th of June at 7PM Irish, 9PM Greek time.
Join me for 30 delicious minutes of movement, breath, meditation and visualisation so that we can flow into serenity, presence and appreciation.
 
It’ll be recorded in case you can’t make it live.
 
And it’s just €5 for this relaxing re-set, which can be paid to @sharonov81(Revolut) or PayPal.me/sharonvogiatzi or ask me for my IBAN.

Please feel free to contact me for details and to share with anyone who might benefit.

Depending on the type of course, I may record the session. If you can’t attend live, just ask for the recording. Only my face and voice will be recorded.

Please also give me your email address so I can send you the Zoom link. You can reach me at info@wellofbeing.ie or +306980118814.
 
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. Headphones and an eye mask could be nice but are not essential.

Little Camino

The past month has been weighed down with money worries, career anxiety, fear for the future and feelings of insecurity. This in turn has had an effect on my self-esteem; how I see myself and how I feel when I’m with others.

The main outcome of a much-needed business coaching session this week was that I need to love myself. And yesterday, I had another revelation.

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.

First Dates

A couple of friends recommended watching First Dates, a television series that films real first dates in a London restaurant. I’ve since watched the entire first season and it’s totally addictive.

As I binge on this hilarious reality TV show, I laugh a lot. But I also shed a few tears.

Just Because.

As you know, I recently injured myself while exercising. What I neglected to mention was that, prior to this, I’d regularly been getting sudden pains in my head.

At the time, it struck me that I probably needed to take it easy but I just couldn’t stop. I was always on the go and I was exercising more than ever. I felt tired a lot but adrenaline was fuelling me and I thought I was doing great.

The Adventure

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.

Just Doing It

I’m currently making my way through Susan Jeffers’ bestseller Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway. So far, I’ve learned that there’s no point in waiting for the fear to subside before you tackle something.

There’s also no sense in assuming that none of those successful people out there experience fear. They do. To quote the book title, they feel the fear… and do it anyway.
