December, you hold so much in your 31 days. The hustle and bustle of the holidays. The missing of those we love. The gatherings of family and friends and people we can't wait to hug and those we wish we didn't have to see. The loneliness that so often rests in the quiet spaces. The expectations, ours and others, that almost twinkle at the edges of each day. The hopes and the dreams and "the new year is almost here" anticipation all wrapped up around us, within us.
There is beauty. And there is messy. There is peace. And there is the longest night of the year.
Many feel moved to go inward even though the world around us pushes us to do and be more.
This December, come along on a journey
to water your soul in the midst of it all.
Gather in community with like-minded spirits and give yourself the gift of remembering you, your soul care needs, your stories, you. Be gently reminded you that you are not alone as you experience all that this season brings.
How this program will work:
Emails to ground you :: From December 1 through December 31, you will receive three emails each week that will invite you to nourish yourself. Each email will include a soul care invitation along with encouragement and inspiration. These invitations might include "being present" practices such as meditations and reflection, short photography or writing prompts, or creative self-care recipes.
Facebook community :: Beginning November 26 through the first week of January, we will also gather in an optional Facebook group to share pieces of ourselves and support one another. Here you will be able to connect about your experiences with the soul care work, share photographs, and have space held for you as you need it.
Registration has begun! To participate in Water Your Soul, click the PayPal "Pay Now" button below. You will be directed to PayPal's website where you can pay the registration tuition. (You don't need a PayPal account to use PayPal.)
Your confirmation email from PayPal confirms your spot in the class.
Note that I will use your PayPal email address to communicate with you. If you prefer that I use another email address, let me know when you register or via an email to liz [dot] lamoreux @ gmail [dot] com (or click here to email through this website).
What it the time committment?
This time of year tends to be very busy for people, so the time commitment will truly be up to you. The intention is to give you soul care ideas that will take between 1 to 10 minutes.
Each prompt can be approached in several different ways. You might want to just think about the prompt and inspiration and just breathe it in for a few minutes. You might want to keep a journal throughout your experience to catch your thoughts. There will be plenty of space to listen to what you most need as you reflect on each email.
What supplies are needed?
Journal or notebook and favorite pen
Camera (phone camera is great!)
Is this program about the holidays?
Water Your Soul is really about grounding yourself in the present moment in the midst of whatever December means to you in your home in your corner of the world. The holidays may come up in stories shared in the emails or in the Facebook group, but this isn't a class about documenting the holidays.
