Moment’s Passed?

I meet singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy this morning. Afterwards, I type his name into Spotify and admire his voice, lyrics, and most of all, his passion.

Listening to his music ignites something deep inside of me. I have the urge to dance. To write. To spill technicolour all over a blank canvass.

Mindfulness, Meditation & Wellness Classes

IMG_7887
 
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 at 7PM Irish/UK or 9PM Greek 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 or using my phone number +30 6980118814 or PayPal: PayPal.me/sharonvogiatzi or @sharonvogiatzi or ask me for my IBAN.

MEDITATION TO STAY CENTRED

We make plans but sometimes life has different things in store for us, which can annoy, disappoint and upset us.

And of course, occasionally what arises is better than we could have ever dreamed up ourselves.

A regular meditation practice can help us stay grounded even during the unexpected or tumultuous times.

Deep, steady breathing and mindfulness keep us calm and present.

This coming Wednesday, I will guide you in gentle stretching, breathing exercises, mindfulness and a beautiful gratitude practice to relax you as well as boost your energy and well-being levels.

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.

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.

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.

To Let It Be

I turned to my friend and announced: “Resistance is what causes most of our suffering.”

This was off the back of a weekend spent in bed, sick and alone, while the sun shone, radio DJs played dance music to prepare us all for a fun Saturday night out, and my Facebook friends posted pictures of forest walks and ice creams in Dun Laoghaire.

Into the Wild

“We’re supposed to be different. Thank goodness.”

I posted these words on my Facebook page yesterday evening along with a quote from Susan Cain’s insightful book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.

Feeling Alive

Last weekend, sitting in front of a roaring fire and feasting on cheese and red wine, I asked my friend: “What fills you with passion?”

“What do you mean exactly,” he wondered.

No More Drama

These past few days, I’ve been questioning whether I’m holding the belief that good things don’t last. It’s like I dare not presume that it’ll all work out. I’ve been almost expecting things to go wrong.

I certainly don’t want to think this way and I’m afraid that this type of thinking will turn out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy.
