Cultivating Calm & Stillness: Letting Go of Anxiety as a Lifestyle
For many of us, anxiety and stress are constants in our lives. We tend to pile on more and more competing priorities and demands and often don't give much thought to the overwhelm or stress it adds to our life. Well, that is to say, we might give it a thought as we say "I can't do this any longer" or "I'm so overwhelmed!" But it's a passing thought as we just keep going and going and going... It's not that we need to figure out how to keep going with this amount of anxiety - it's about figuring out how to lesson the anxiety. We will never be anxiety free - but the way to lesson it's hold on our life is to become "anxiety aware." It takes "committing to a way of living where anxiety is a reality but not a lifestyle. So how do we do that? "By cultivating calm and stillness in our lives and making these practices the norm." It sounds counter intuitive, but it's the only way out. Come join us in a conversation about how to make space for calm and stillness in our lives. "The Gifts of Imperfection" by Brené Brown, Guidepost #8 (pages 105 -110) COST: $10 Space is limited to the first 20 who RSVP, so if something comes up and you can't attend, please take your name off the registered list so others can attend. Also, if the meetup is full, please put your name on the wait list. A few people usually cancel each month as the date gets closer. Payment taken at the door. Hope to see you there! Light refreshments, coffee, hot tea and water are provided. We will be gaining new awareness from others and picking up tools along the way. As we journey together, we support and honor each other through respect and non-judgement. I encourage you to pick up the book, "The Gifts of Imperfection" by Brené Brown, and read this section before our meeting so that you have plenty of time to reflect, and are prepared to share your thoughts and insights on the chapter. This is NOT necessary to attend! Hope to see you soon! Dale Falini

    What we're about

    This is a group for women interested in daring greatly, living wholeheartedly and being a member of a courageous, compassionate and connected community. Come explore Brené Brown's key elements to living a wholehearted life, as outlined in her book, "The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are"

    We will meet once a month in the downtown area of Colorado Springs. Our goal is to practice what it means to embrace our imperfections and live from a place of internal worthiness. We will discuss Brené Brown's 10 Guideposts for Wholehearted Living, and create a community based on the shared values of trust, compassion, connection and laughter.

    Who can join the meetup?

    Although the meetings will be held in Colorado Springs, women from all over can join this meetup. All members will receive inspiration for the posts and can read along in the book as we explore the guidepost. Eventually, I would love to include a Teleconference Meeting for those out of town. You just have to sign up to let me know there is interest, even though you cannot attend the monthly meeting.

    Our monthly meetings will have a limited number of attendees to enhance trust, vulnerability and growth. As our Meetup group grows in numbers, we will add another monthly meeting date and time, so more women can be a part of this wholehearted experience.
