Week 1: The Joy of Burnout with Dina Glouberman

Sun 16 - Sat 29 Jun 2024


Are the winds of change blowing in your life? What are they whispering? Are you willing to listen? If so, this course is for you.

You may be feeling burnt out, stressed, or stuck. You may be confronting crisis or change.  Or you may be wanting change and not seeing what that might be, or finding that your head and your heart are at war. Such times demand that you step forward into a bigger picture of who you are and where you are going.

This is also a crash course in working with your ‘genius imagination’ so that you can be your own consultant, therapist, and wise guide. It is suitable for complete beginners in imagery and visualisation as well as for those who are experienced in using this approach.

Since you are what you imagine, if where you are is not where you want to be, why not learn to imagine better?
This course is divided into two parts, but it is best if you can do the whole course.

Week One: The Joy of Burnout

In week one, we will map out the path from where you are back to your authentic self and forward into a new set of choices.  You don’t need to be burnt out to take this course, only to recognise that you are at a choice point, and you don’t want to fudge it.

This week will include learning how to:

In other words, at the end of this week, you will have a deep sense of where your true joy lies.

Week Two: New Beginnings

Week Two is about moving through to saying Yes. Saying Yes is a commitment to take whatever is brewing within you and around you into a new behaviour, a new attitude, or a new way of life. An unqualified Yes sets the next stage into motion, opening you to the intuitions, research, actions, and persistence in the face of difficulties that make it possible to vision and create your new life. We will be working with imagery and visualisation to:

Map out the steps to your new future, and take a leap of faith into a new reality.

At the end of this second week, you will have a vision, a plan, and a determination to make it work. More than that, you will have a knowledge of what really matters to you, and how to make sure your life reflects this understanding.
