Stress With Wisdom

Online event

CA$20.00

Dear Meetup Friends, Welcome! This will be an inspiring event on how to balance your life, that you respond to your stress and the stress of others with your big picture wisdom. It is how to create a yes and connection with yourself and the outside world. Stress is present in all our lives. The more pressures or demands we have from past, present or future experiences, the greater the stressors on our bodies, including our hearts and brains. The current stress triggers in our world are many and varied and we need to be wise in how we care for ourselves. Wisdom is about making big picture choices, it’s about making good, healthy choices, choices that consider the humanity of every situation, now and in the future. We know that while some stress is healthy, when the stress turns into distress it can be crippling. Faced with too much stress we begin to avoid our responsibilities, ignore what and who we love and begin to be filled with fears. We become frozen. What we need and require is more self-nurturance. Here wisdom enters the picture and we jump over our fears and enter the world of the wise. Remember, Living Big is not about what you have, it’s about what you share.

How to Build Positive Curiosity

Online event

R$20.00

Dear Meetup Friends, What is positive curiosity. Positive curiosity is about eagerly seeking to know more, to learn more, to see more, to witness more, to love better. Without curiosity, there is a deadness in how we connect with the internal and external world. It is easy to blame the world, others and ourselves. What if there is a whole new way to have hope in yourself and others. Without engaging reality curiosity, our ability to be kind, mindful, transparent and collaborative degenerates. We can become overly-confident and build a psychological wall of blind spots. A world of us and them. Unless we have the healthy curiosity to check in our“rear view mirror” of life, and see what has been, and what is needed to go forward, there is no learning, no healthy adaption to see the true meaningfulness of life. This results in lots of self-harm and harm of others. Our Meetup will be filled with vibrant reasons to be curious about all that is around you. We’ll explore how to have gratitude and motivation to live the life you love. We’ll look at delightful ways to empower your curiosity and to see the world around you with fresh and inquisitive eyes. Although there is an old saying “curiosity killed the cat” we prefer another, equally old saying, that points out that “a cat has nine lives. ” Let’s go for living a life that feels like nine exciting, sparkling and invigorating lives. After all, an unexamined life is a life without soul. Remember, Living Big is not about what you have, it’s about what you share. With Joy, Suzanne Kyra, Hazel Postma

Seven Steps How To Stand Tall

Online event

CA$20.00

Dear Meetup Friends, When we talk about standing tall, we mean showing up, seeing the world around us in a proactive, modest, curious and assertive manner. It is a world you meet with self-love and confidence in yourself and others. It is not about taking a one up or a one down position, passing judgements, or feeling morally superior. It’s about being your very best, and bringing out the best in others. Standing tall is living with a sense of trust in yourself and others. If you interested in stepping up, and showing up and standing tall then you’ll enjoy the energy and the steps we’ll explore to standing tall no matter the environment. Standing tall is about being present and available in every situation, not stereotyping, judging or discriminating against any part in yourself or others. It is a loving and honest way to live, being the best you can be in every situation. We will walk with you through the seven steps on how to stand tall through the gentle winds or heavy gales of life. Remember, Living Big is not about what you have, it’s about what you share. With Joy, Suzanne Kyra, Hazel Postma

Vulnerabilities and Celebration

Online event

CA$20.00

Dear Meetup Friends, December in Canada is marked by darkness and celebrations, as the nights draw in and preparations for a number of religious holidays ramp up. We’re supposed to be happy and joyful and yet, for many of us, these celebrations bring a deluge of yearnings, loneliness and pining for what once was, what never was, and what never will be. It is a vulnerable time of year. As always, there is another side to vulnerability - did you know that these vulnerabilities open our willingness to give to others that which we wish to be given to us. Vulnerability is about honesty, trust, ease, connecting, sharing and spontaneity. Vulnerability makes us soft and self-reflective and it is here that we can find the empowerment to compassion and empathy and the proactivity to give to others what we also need ourselves. The more conscious we are of our vulnerability, the more responsive we will be to ourselves and to others. So let’s celebrate together and learn how to grow our vulnerability with compassionate honesty and love. We look forward to celebrating this evening with you in the soft glow of our interconnectedness. We all in this together. Remember, Living Big is not about what you have, it’s about what you share. With Joy, Suzanne Kyra, Hazel Postma
