It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update on this blog. I think about it everyday and feel sad that I have not connected. But it has all been for a worthy cause. For those of you who have been following my journey, you know that I’ve been doing a lot of work to create the next phase of my life. I’ve felt and acknowledged a strong pull to create a business that reflects my passion, my awareness of creating consciously, of doing work that is true to what I know to be most important for me in this lifetime. I was fortunate and grateful to have journeyed through a 5 month yoga intensive where I studied ancient tools and methods to look deeply inward in a raw and honest way.
I have taken time to learn from some of the best living foods chefs and gurus as to what makes living foods so amazing for the body, the mind and the spirit. I’ve taken deep dives into meditation, yoga and self-reflection to bring to the surface my intense belief in intuition and how it can guide us to lead our lives in a magical, honest and powerful way. I’ve also heard the call of creating a space for women, a sacred tribe, a community where women can shed their tears, shed their facades and create powerful connections that lift each other up in beautiful ways.
The culmination of this work led me to create my first women’s workshop. The workshop was absolutely beautiful. A group of fifteen amazing women showed up to share in the space and it was truly magical. I am finally sitting down to look back and see what worked best, what I would have done differently and what I want to again for the next workshop. Here are a few comments from the women who attended:
“The most memorable part of the evening was hearing all of the voices of the women in attendance as well as seeing parts of myself reflected back to me. It was nice to see all of us vulnerable and open, it was so refreshing! I did not feel like i had to fake it, and this for me is memorable. Additionally, I don’t feel bad about showing my vulnerable and sensitive side–it is a huge part of me, and I have realized the more I try to hide the more difficult my life becomes. One more little thing…the book, Journey to The Heart, I own and have read it and had shelved it. Your opening the book and reading it aloud reminded me about it and I have since removed it from the shelf and am reading it daily, again. Thank you! “
“WONDERFUL – variety of engaging activities, good pace and great energy.”
“Your workshop was lovely, what a great group of graceful women! I felt so peaceful and assured when I got home. —We’re much better mamas when we take care of ourselves.”
These are just two of the comments I received. This makes me feel, in my heart, that the work I am moving towards in the world is truly taking me in the right direction. I am working on my new site ElenaLipson.com. This will be the new home of the workshops, the coaching and much much more. I am thrilled to share this with you and will work on documenting the journey as I go.
Please feel free to connect with me and watch for my next workshop coming in January 2013.
Love, gratitude and light.
