Thank you for your brave presence at the Mindfulness in the Messy Middle workshop!
Thank you for your active engagement
Openness + presence
Just bring yourself, an open heart and posture, to explore connections with your own heart and with other people in good conversation, and with inspiration. 🙂 Feel free to bring any items that help you feel cozy, (eg. candle, blanket, snack, warm beverage…)
All you need is something to write with and something to write on. It can be as simple as a pencil and the backside of paper you want to reuse. It can be as fancy as your art supplies and sketchbook or journal.
For the Minding the Messy Middle: Pandemic Joys and Griefs workshops, you’ll also need a few squares from a roll of toilet paper.
If you have a journal or planner that would help you reflect on the events or heart happenings of the past season, feel free to bring it, though it is not necessary. If you have a very full journal, it might be a good approach to come without it, and see what emerges intuitively for you.
You can come without any preparation, but if you’re the type of person who likes a lot of reflection time, or you like to know what’s coming, I’d encourage you to ponder the following questions ahead of time, so that you’re coming into the space with some general themes/thoughts to focus your creative explorations:
- High and Low: What are the strengths and struggles that have emerged, related to the workshop reflection topic?
- Grow: What is surprising? What has been sustaining? What has been draining? Any new realizations?
- Let go: What do you want to release so you can enter the next stage or season in light of new insights?
What Our Community is Saying
Justine’s approach was very engaging, and I found myself really pulled in and actively participating immediately. Every step of her process was unique. Her leadership through the exercises was clear and approachable, kind and full of grace.
Never in my life have 2 hours flown by so quickly! Days later, I am still thinking about some of the things we worked on, and I will be building in some time to my schedule each week to look through the notes and build on them, while working on some of the questions that came up for me during the session. Thank you Justine! It was a life-changing session for me!
