Exploring Wisdom: The Stillpoint Group on Finding Direction
Are you completely, wildly, head-over-heels in love with your life? The Stillpoint Group wants the answer to be an enthusiastic “YES!”.
The Stillpoint Group created the From Here to Where Retreat to help participants “live outrageously”. She believes that a passionate, meaningful life is within reach for each and every person, and that health, happiness, and fulfillment are our birthright. This program give us the tools and support we need to bridge the gap between the life we’ve always lived, and the life that will set our hearts and souls on fire.
New Year, New You
2016 has challenged each one of us on so many different levels. We have been pushed to examine our beliefs, judgments and stories about many aspects of our outer and inner worlds. We’re at a critical point in our collective and individual evolution, where the old ways of thinking and behaving are being brought to the surface for acknowledgement and healing. It’s not easy to let go of the familiar, and many of us are struggling to find new ways to express ourselves that do not reflect our old, stale patterns.
From Here to Where?
We instinctually know when the time comes to reinvent ourselves on a higher energetic plane, but for many of us, we have no idea what that looks like. After all, the soul has no road map.
You might feel as though you’ve lost your purpose, your direction. You might be unsure of who this new You is, so you cling to the old You for safety. You might find it hard to relate to some of your friends, who somehow, have begun to feel more like strangers. The chaotic energy of the outside world sometimes feels like it is inside of you, and you might feel lost and tired and hopeless.
These sorts of feelings are a common theme for many of our clients, and in our own lives as well, and this is why we were motivated to create our retreats.
In these retreats, we offer solutions and tools to release the patterns that no longer serve us, and to empower individuals to live consciously and passionately. The safe, supportive and energized space that a group generates is a wonderful place to let go and discover new and amazing aspects of yourself.
We focus on giving you information and practices that inform the whole of you – mind, body and spirit.
Happiness is Your Birthright.
These are two of my favorite quotes from one of my teachers, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi:
“The important thing is this: to be able, at any moment, to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.” and,
“What we put our attention on, will grow stronger in our life.”
It took me many years to understand the first teaching. I had no idea that I had so many beliefs, judgments, and personas inside of me. One persona is as a daughter, another as a sister, a wife, mother, a boss, business woman, and so on. All of these identities, with all of their beliefs, took immense energy to maintain, and I had no idea who I really was underneath. I had to be willing to let go of each and every one of my personas to discover the real Me. It took help and loving support from others, and focused attention on my goals, to attain the freedom, peace and joy that I choose to experience in each moment. This is everyone’s birthright, but you need to claim it for yourself- and we are here to help you.
Fall in Love with Your Life
I challenge you to do these three simple things every day, and watch your world change:
- Tell someone how amazing they are, including yourself.
- Find five things to be grateful for in your life.
- Smile at strangers and yourself in the mirror.
We are Divine beings experiencing a journey in a physical body, on a beautiful planet. Let your journey be filled with passion, excitement, amazement, fun, joy and love for everything.
A life that you are passionately in love with is within reach. So many that have taken this journey with us have transformed their lives – and you can, too.
