THE ART OF POSITIVE PERSONAL CHANGE

With NIALL KELLY

At Lucca - Tuscany - Villa Vistosa

12 September - 20 September, 2024

Revitalise you journey by joining Niall Kelly, expert in personal change, by embarking on a transformative 8-day workshop in THE ART OF POSITIVE PERSONAL CHANGE. This workshop offers a unique opportunity to pause, reflect, and design conscious responses to the unrelenting demands of an increasingly chaotic world. We now live in a world brimming with challenges ranging from climate change to technology overload which are triggering an unconscious and chronic low-level Freeze response. This response creates tiredness, muscle pain, lack of focus and an unfathomable sense of anxiety. Discover how to address these effects by seizing this unique opportunity to explore the limitations unrelenting change imposes on you. Design conscious responses that minimise or eliminate the effects unconscious responses to the ever evolving world around you. You will be expertly guided in practical activities through group and one-to-one hands-on sessions and massage designed to allow you to: • cultivate self-awareness, presence and practical mindfulness • gain insight into your responses to change • restore natural breath, alignment and confident posture in all situations • create conscious responses to change that lead to empowerment • build confidence and resilience This is not just a workshop, it is a personal retreat - a time to unplug, recalibrate, and plan your reset. Join us for a transformative experience designed to amplify your energy and focus as you design conscious plans to navigate the intricate tapestry of your life successfully. Spaces are strictly limited to ensure maximum learning so early booking is advised.

The world is too much with us; late and soon, Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers. Little we see in nature that is ours; We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon - William Wordsworth

However demanding life was in Wordsworth’s time we are now living lives that are ever more demanding. Climate change, conflict, health crises, environmental sustainability and technology are piled on top of our normal existence, triggering a chronic and unconscious low-level Freeze response.
