Monday, October 24 through Friday, October 28, 2016
Day 1 – Quiet Your Mind
9AM – 1 PM
Learn to come out of defense, hurry, worry and judgement, all states that hijack your brain. When these occur, we have lost our focus, intention and movement in the direction of our purpose and passion. We spend large amounts of time and energy but get less fulfillment and accomplishment.
On our first day Robin tackles the important subject of stress in your life: what it is, how it impacts your physical and mental health as well as your work and your relationships. Learn how to embrace it (we only stress about what we care about) reduce it, manage it and increase your resilience through it. Get key skills to sustain yourself year round.
The following is a list of physical, mental and emotional reactions that occur when people are too stressed. Which of these look familiar to you? Have any more than 2 – 5 times a month?
- Frequent headaches or upset stomach?
- Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep?
- You’re sicker than you used to be?
- Wake up tired or feeling slow?
- Inability to think clearly?
- You’re grumbling, not whistling, on your way to work?
- Feel upset often with your family or coworkers?
- Your teamwork is suffering?
- Find yourself complaining more than laughing?
- Feel anxious, overwhelmed, resentful or angry often?
- Too tired or angry to enjoy yourself when you finally have the time to?
Robin will teach techniques to stop and slow the biological downshift into unhealthy stress mode, along with research-driven practices that increase the clarity of your thinking as well as your resistance to stress and burnout. These techniques can be used at work and at home.
Day 2 – What’s Your Story?
9AM – 1 PM
Your thoughts define you. They shape your entire life, past, present and future. They instruct your brain to move in THAT direction. What you think about, you bring about. The most important ability you possess is the ability to focus your mind, thoughts, stories and words in the direction you desire. 98% of most people’s thoughts are fear-based or negative (worry, complaining, gossiping, scarcity) and these thoughts both change the chemistry in your brain as well as what gets attention and motivates behaviours in your life. Most of us
carry an inner voice that is critical, yet effective in sabotaging our movement forward, and shapes our lives more then we know.
On Day 2 we will look at YOUR story and how it shapes you today and your vision of your future. You will understand how your thoughts change your chemistry and allow or disallow accurate perception, insight and your success. You will understand how your stories create your feelings, attitdes and moods, and how to rapidly change these. The goal : a inner story that matches the outcomes, happiness, health and success that you desire!
Day 3 – Define Yourself! Get on Your Path, Stay on Your Path, Do it with Passion!
9AM – 1 PM
Feel your feelings, but act from your values. Our lives are busy and full of demands. All too often we get pulled off of our sense of purpose, passion and alignment because of demands, business and stress occuring around us. Day 3 is about clarifying what is on the top of your life list and how to engage with those impostant items daily, no matter what, at work and at home.
Does this ever happen to you? You promise yourself that you will start a new healthy habit or kinder communication style. Then, when it gets challenging or just plain inconvenient, you don’t follw-through, instead you eat that unhealthy food, or have that argument that brings pain but no meaningful understanding and connection. On day three you will learn WHY your brain gets hyjacked (what core need is unmet and wins everytime) and you act in ways you think you do not want to, and, most importantly, how to work with and change this, so that you can follow-through and act upon what is important and life enhancing to you.
What’s important to you? What is necessary for your fulfillment, meaning, joy, health and well-being? What does that actually look like in your life? How would you like it to look? How do you build in essential pieces in your daily life. Learn to stop the hyjack that deters you from achieving outcomes you really want.
A powerful understanding will happen for you on Day 3 – you will gain an insight and learn a tool you will use the rest of you life. Empowering and freeing!
Day 4 – Exceptional Health - Self-Care, Self-Compassion& Forgivess
9AM – 1 PM
Health cannot exist in the body or mind if your one core need is not met. Day 4 will take everything you have learned and now focus upon and applying it to your health. What is needed for your system to experience consistent vitality, energy and stamina? Understand the relationship between forgiveness, self-compassion and optimal health. Identify what needs greater balance within you for your health. Design a plan, internal and external, to support these new steps forward.
Are you helping others at work? Do you experience constant tiredness, feelings of burnout or compassion fatigue? Learn which 6 key habits alter the structure of the brain and prevent burnout. Identify simple ways you can build the right amount of them, for you, into your life. Go deep, embrace the self-sabotage tendencies that keep you stuck, unhealthy and unhappy. Use the skills of self-compassion, forgiveness and internal unstoppable support to get going forward on a whole new path of joy, energy and health!
Day 5 – Understand How Your Brain Organizes – then Organize Your New Plan!
9AM – 1 PM
On day 5 we will put it all together. What’s important? And what comes first?. We will start the morning with a Gregorc Adult Style Delineator (a favorite and empowering assessment tool) that will help you see what you need to stay on track with your plan and accomlish your goals. Then, once we know your ‘style’ we will put together plans that incorporate the learning, desires, actions and behavious from the entire week!
Meet individually with Robin to discuss your goals and plan. Once in Punta Mita, then again when you return home (via Skype or phone).
