Recently back from hosting our 2nd Press Pause 7-day retreat in the beautiful Ubud, Bali. Feeling really grounded and grateful for the wonderful experience we had there. The combination of daily yoga, together with singing, healthy and delicious food and The Work of Byron Katie flows like a stream – healthy mind, body and soul. We have just set the dates for our 3rd Press Pause Retreat – 22 – 30 March 2020. We will keep the group small, so contact us and let us know you are interested, and we can take it from there.

Sometimes we need more than words… I recorded a small video the last day I was in Bali as a way to share with those of you who couldn’t be there a little about the journey we went on and what I learned for myself – enjoy it here.

#Create the life you want….. reflecting before and after the Bali experience, it came to me that is 100% possible to create the life you want. I feel so excited to be doing this myself. To have a small seed of an idea – Frika (co-host of Press Pause) and myself reconnecting after eight years, sharing honestly our challenges respectively, with divorce and starting life over, and the toil of burn out after passionate activism. From that conversation ignited a spark of an idea – to give to others what we had discovered on our own journeys of wellbeing and self-discovery. It was really like that – there was a spark, a collaborative space for creativity, the desire and passion to make it happen and a belief that we could. And then we did it.

It takes time, and I love that these days unlike in my earlier activist days, I am not in a rush. Things happen when they happen without any forcing but with clear intent. Creating the life you want, including balancing wonderful children in our lives, jobs, responsibilities and passions. It feels good! I see it’s about taking small steps towards creating the life you want and then just noticing and flowing along with where life takes you.

Thinking about your own life – in what area of your life do you want to #createthelifeyouwant? Change starts with you and it starts now so check in with yourself – where in your mind and heart is there a spark? Who could you team up with? What would you just love to do?

So friends, summer is coming, we are lucky to have such a huge amount of wonderful light in Ireland with daylight from 5am to 10pm and still increasing. Lots of time for creativity.

If you are interested in what I am doing and want to experience it for yourself, I have a few workshops coming up soon and always the opportunity to work privately.

Love, Nadine x

PS: Excited to share with you an article recently published in the Irish Independent interviewing Byron Katie and giving a good description of the power of The Work online here.

2nd Press Pause Retreat – Bali (3rd – 9th May 2019)

Do you ever want to ‘Press Pause’ on your life?  If so, this seven-day retreat is for you. Carefully crafted for those who are working hard and find little time to look after themselves, this retreat offers an opportunity to focus deeply on mind, body and spirit and come away feeling not only rejuvenated, but also taking tools with you for ongoing self-care.

This retreat is for busy people who work tirelessly under constant pressure, activists and advocates, individuals and couples who give their best to improve the lives of others – people who are close to burn out and anyone to whom it appeals.

This retreat has been inspired by the Facilitators’ personal experience. We have both worked in the field of health and development for many years and have realised deeply the importance of self-care. We took time out of our activist lives and found ways to achieve a balance between our passion and our inner selves. We both re-trained, Frika as a Yoga Teacher and Health Coach and Nadine as a Certified Facilitator of the Work of Byron Katie. We are now combining our energy and skills and offering workshops to others to share what we have learned, while still actively working in health and HIV.

Our desire is to support the people who support others in a meaningful and holistic way to achieve balance in their lives. In this retreat, we are working on creating a balance of healthy body and mind. Supporting each participant to find what works for them to maintain well-being – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. We have an amazing curriculum planned and all you need is an open mind.

Taking place on the beautiful island of Bali, Indonesia in the spiritual center of Nyuh Kuning – Ubud, a location that has been carefully chosen in a beautiful lavish, green setting, where you will wake up each morning, hearing the birds chirping and the water flowing in the river.
