Create an alternative future - it starts with me


Had enough of being locked in and locked down? Does the current narrative leave you feeling depleted and despondent? What do you want to see more of in the world? What would make it a better place for you?

By joining a seeding circle you will have a chance to create an alternative storyline. Through meditation and intention-setting, creativity is sparked and energy restored. You will feel motivated to take some positive action; to take the step that’s in front of you. Journaling for growth and reflection supports the programme.

How will you benefit?

This five week programme will provide you with the opportunity to

  • Clear any heavy issues and the accompanying emotions that are getting in your way
  • Clarify what is important to you and what you would like to see more of in the world
  • Set powerful intentions that lay the foundation for successful outcomes
  • Be curious, challenge with compassion and support each other in the group on the journey
  • Hold each other accountable as you witness and experience each other’s transformative process
