Two years ago, Nicholas lost his job right before Thanksgiving. Suddenly, I was facing a very different holiday season than I had always experienced. Gone were the fancy Christmas cards and giant trees. Gone were the piles of presents and big holiday parties. Instead, stripped away and laid bare, I had to decide what it was that I loved so much about this holiday.
I found that while I love the sparkle and the celebrations, Christmas has so much to offer in the way of quiet magic and peace.
My dear friend Doña of a Nurtured Mama has taken a similar journey. We both believe deeply in celebrating the holiday season simply with mindfulness and great joy. We wanted to share some of the lessons we've learned along the way and have decided to launch an email class entitled 21 Days to a Peaceful Holiday.
21 DAYS TO A PEACEFUL HOLIDAY IS THE GENTLE ENCOURAGEMENT YOU NEED TO LET GO OF STRESS, EXPECTATIONS, AND TRADITIONS THAT NO LONGER SERVE YOU, YOUR FAMILY, OR THE WAY YOU WISH TO FEEL IN THE LAST MONTH OF THE YEAR. MAKE ROOM TO INVITE IN THE HOLIDAYS ON YOUR TERMS.
For 21 days from December 1 to Solstice on December 21, you will receive a daily email containing a story from our journey and tips and practices to help you in your own journey. The class is only $18 and will include access to a closed Facebook group where we all can share insights and inspiration.
Won't you join us?
