We received this wonderful note from a past participant, and wanted to share it with you...
I recently experienced "Eat Breathe Thrive” with Lara and Nancy. I am very impressed with the many new tools I was given. The meditation started with ‘allowing me to expand and take up space'. I was stunned at how foreign that permission was. ‘Permission to take up space', such a simple and basic fact of existence, Who would have ever guessed that I fought that so? Many of my twisted self messages came to light.The group gave me the confidence to challenge and rewrite some of my messages.
Eat Breathe Thrive gave me a community where I could safely face some feelings of shame and self disgust that I had no idea were running in the background of my mind. I was able to note some of the ways I found distractions to distract myself from properly loving myself.
These sessions allowed me to start to heal areas that I had hidden away and yet the sessions were fun. You felt supported and allowed to gently face your issues. We were able to laugh together, dine together, stretch together, and learn what projects outside of ourselves we valued. This work shook me out of the little strange world I had created.
The growth didn’t end as the sessions did, I continue to learn new ways to self soothe and answer the question, “What do I need?”. As an older woman you would think I would have spent more time asking myself that question rather than mostly asking “What did the rest of my world need?”
