Welcome to LightUP

Group workshops designed to shine a light on your life. To build authentic relationships with yourself and those around you.

Through stages of our lives we can find ourselves in all too familiar territories. Spaces of disconnect where we feel flat, lack creative direction and struggle to trust.

If this rings true for you, I have a feeling you might be experiencing some of the following:

STIFLED RELATIONSHIPS

Have you noticed that the passion and purpose that used to be the driving foundation of your relationships has vanished? Perhaps you are finding yourself stuck in a relationship ‘freeze-zone’, where you simply exist alongside a friend, family member or intimate partner. You know the feeling when you wake up each day and simply go through the motions.

The all-too-common situation where the relationships you hold in your life lack true authenticity, honesty, pleasure and joy. Relationships that don’t drive or inspire you, the type that doesn’t encourage you to grow, be challenged or expand. If this sounds like a familiar space to you, you have definitely come to the right place.

If any of the above are present in your relationships, LightUp will help you to acknowledge them, and not to blame or judge. Your loved ones are still your loved ones, they still care and so do you. You just need an opportunity to reconnect, communicate and build together. LightUP is your platform to do this!

We’ll begin to deep dive into the reasons behind why your relationships are characterised the way they are and together we’ll take action so you burst into a new space of pure conscious connection.

UTTERLY OVERWHELMED

Have you noticed the little niggles that are present in your relationships? The ones that say ‘why haven’t you done that, why did you say that or I thought you would do something different this time?’

Relationship expectations, although harmful, can give incredible insight and opportunity for growth.

If you have a big, dark expectation cloud above your head, you will know that expectations create overwhelm. They also leave you feeling exhausted and are often paired with and an overbearing feeling of failure. You become ripe with fear. Fear of doing or saying the ‘wrong’ thing, therefore, leaving you isolated and withdrawn from your people. This all stems from unconscious communication and connection. To overcome overwhelm, you must first become aware of why it is present, process it and then develop a new way to navigate through and transition through it feeling empowered. You will learn how to do this efficiently and effectively in LightUP.

ENERGY ZAPPED

Is your creative energy all drained up? Are you feeling nostalgic about times when you had that added extra bit of oomph that drove your decisions, passions and direction? Perhaps you are lacking a clear roadmap on how to manifest your own desires. This is a common place to be.

Through the LightUP workshops, we’ll reignite this fire each time we meet and we’ll show you how to keep the desire to become your best self-alive and glowing in your everyday life.

DESPERATE FOR CHANGE

You know a shift needs to take place. A monumental movement in direction, thinking and behaviour but it’s all too challenging. We will work through how to identify current areas for change and how to reset these by interacting with yourself and your community – in a new supportive way.

These workshops will offer you a stage to step on to, in a safe place, where you can emerge with confidence and courage to create change. Inspiration will lead to action. Action will lead to transformation.

You will have an army of warriors around you cheering you on, reminding you every step of the way, that you can experience inner harmony, have thriving relationships, a fulfilling career and a deep sense of purpose and contentment, all at the same time.


Welcome To LightUP

A transformational 3-part journey. A collaborative mentoring program – with a very clear goal – to ignite the catalyst in you, connect authentically with yourself and build unbreakable relationships with your community and support network.


LightUP Workshop #1 – Returning Home

In workshop #1 I will help you unpack the emotions and experiences that are limiting you from living harmoniously. You will experience honest and open conversations with your community and you will discover how to communicate with yourself kindly.

  • If you have been let down before or hurt, you may fear opening your heart. I will create a safe space for you to gently open your heart and begin to heal your pain, your anger or your doubt.

  • Returning Home will teach you how to identify your emotions, process and express your emotions, and unblock any emotions that are limiting you.

  • Once you are aware of the patterns that fuel perfectionism, self-sabotage, anger and comparison, you can learn to release them. Once you release them you can create a caring relationship with yourself.

  • When you speak to yourself kindly, compassionately and lovingly, the relationship you have with yourself will flow. The cycle of struggle and hurt will gently come to an end. You can discover a new of communicating with yourself. Returning Home will show you how to start this process.

  • Relaxation is a unique support tool that encourages self-connection, self-discovery and self-transformation. I will guide you to create a personal relaxation practice with the intention to strengthen your self-worth, your confidence, your motivation and your love for yourself.


LightUP Workshop #2 – Build Extraordinary Relationships

In workshop #2 you’ll focus on showing you how to create relationships with purpose, passion and power. Extraordinary Relationships will support you to connect with your loved ones on a whole new level.

  • Identifying what relationship values and beliefs you hold are vital to building effective, authentic connections. This is our starting ground. Then we will explore what it means to have a relationship with purpose, passion and power.

  • Extraordinary relationships will support you to unpack the current communication patterns (verbal and non-verbal) that are present in your relationships. Then we’ll explore how you can create new communication patterns that leave you feeling balanced and at peace with your relationships.

  • There is a BIG difference between saying yes because you think you ‘should’ do something and saying yes because you 100% want to do it. This workshop will show you how to identify what experiences support your health and happiness and what experiences limit you.

  • Extraordinary Relationships will support you to understand the roles forgiveness and acceptance play in your life and the impact they have on your happiness. Both of these things are fundamental themes of relationships, therefore building an awareness of their power is vital.

  • Relaxation is a unique support tool that encourages self-connection, self-discovery and self-transformation. I will guide you to create a personal relaxation practice with the intention to strengthen your self-worth, your confidence, your motivation and your love for yourself.


LightUP Workshop #3 -Dare to Dream

In workshop #3 you’ll focus on transforming your dreams into your reality. Dare to Dream will support you to explore your goals, identify why they are important to you and learn how you can create a space for you to breathe life into your vision.

  • Learn the incredible value of connecting with your vision regularly and purposefully. This tool can be the difference between dreams and reality. It will help uncover your true potential, strengthen your ambition and drive inspired-action everyday.

  • Your success is defined only by you. Dare to Dream will support you to identify your ‘why’ and the reasons you want to create something new.

  • Choice is an inevitable part of life, so to succeed we must learn how to make decisions from a place of joy and value rather than fear. Together, we will build these principles into each part of your life – your health, your relationships, your career and so on.

  • Together we will create actionable goals that support you to achieve all of the above and much more.

  • Relaxation is a unique support tool that encourages self-connection, self-discovery and self-transformation. I will guide you to create a personal relaxation practice with the intention to strengthen your self-worth, your confidence, your motivation and your love for yourself.
