Explore Life: Women's Circles

calendarTuesday, April 16,  7:30pm

Screen Shot 2019-03-04 at 4.09.01 PM

Hosted by Explore Life Coach, Patti Phillips

"These gatherings are for women looking to connect with a community of others who are navigating significant life transitions. Each month, a new topic will be explored and discussed. These circles go beyond presenting new information. They provide a safe and nurturing environment for women to share their challenges and learn from one another, recognizing no one needs to do this growth work alone.

As a certified life coach, it is my belief that conversation and powerful questions are what move information to inspiration to action to transformation. I deeply believe that if more women committed to intentional self-care and inner reflection, we would be able to create more balance between feminine and masculine power, attitudes will change, and ultimately, our intentional transformation will improve not only our lives but the lives of the people we love and care for."

Exploring Authenticity

Hosted by: Explore Life Coach, Patti Phillips

Authenticity is a popular word these days. We hear the term all the time in the field of personal growth andit seems to be everywhere in advertising.

Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres credit much of their success to “being authentic”. Spiritual teachers of our time like Marianne Williamson, Wayne Dyer, and Deepak Chopra appeal to us to “be your true self”. Brené Brown, the social researcher, writes about it extensively in her books Braving the Wild, The Gift of Imperfection and Daring Greatly.

We live in a culture that is craving authenticity. We want the freedom to say, do and be who we really are without worrying so much about how we are perceived by others.

Sadly, even though we may say we want to live in a way that is true to who we are at the deepest level, most of us don't. It's not that easy. Many of us have learned from our parents, teachers, employers, and the media that it's more important to be liked and to fit in than it is to be ourselves.

In this circle, we’ll explore some ideas of what it means to be authentic and how being authentic can help increase our feelings of peace, joy and purpose. A few ideas for how to explore your authentic self will be offered.

Things to note:

The room we use for the session is used by another group prior to us having access. We will wait in the lobby and move in to set up chairs when they are finished. Please don't arrive too early to avoid congestion.

If you like taking notes, bring a journal and pen.

Also bring some cozy slippers or wear your fancy socks as we will leave our shoes at the entrance.

February Event ~ The Healthy Living Puzzle ~ Taste the Shred

Wednesday, Feb. 20
7:15 - 9:00 pm
Location: Carol's home

10 Spindlestone Gate

There are so many messages out there. Eat this, don't eat that. Do this, don't do that. This will cure this, that will kill you. It can be extremely confusing.

This evening is meant to introduce you to the various things that you say, do, eat and think that contribute to a healthy lifestyle. It truly is a unique puzzle you need to create for yourself.

The night will be hosted by certified health coach Carol Ploen-Hosegood. Carol will walk you through your own personal wellness wheel and discuss the different pieces of a healthy lifestyle puzzle so you can leave with some new tools. She will also introduce you to the Shred 10 program and you will have an opportunity to taste some great healthy recipes.

In a world where illness is on the rise along with health care costs, it's time we take control of our own health through education and prevention. It's more enjoyable and a lot cheaper than illness.

You will go home with resources to assist you on your healthy living journey.

Your day to escape and enjoy nature.

This day is delivered by life coach Patti Phillips.

Hooky Days are day long get-aways during the work week that encourage you to play hooky from the everyday expectations in your life. Step away from work stresses, family obligations, unhealthy habits, and your to-do list.

The focus is on play and recreation!

Hooky Days take place outdoors at the Nurtured by Nature Retreat and Playhouse in Pinawa. There’s no better place to re-energize than in nature and away from the structure and confinement of city life.

Rather than following a fully structured agenda for the day, we will have one featured event and flexible time for the group to decide together what to do for play.

Arrive by 10 am for our featured activity. We will then have lunch back at the Playhouse. We can decide together what to do in the afternoon until you’re departure by 4:00 pm.

Featured Activities will range – hiking, biking, paddling (canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding), exploring old Pinawa dam, tubing the channel, creating your day.

Unstructured activities that can be added; swimming at the Pinawa beach, photo scavenger hunt, pickleball, bocchi ball, napping in the hammocks, reading in the screened porch.

There are a lot of options in Pinawa and at the Playhouse!

Each Hooky Day includes:

• guided activities
• unstructured free time
• healthy lunch served at the playhouse
• outdoor/activity equipment
• organized transportation (transportation is not provided, but participants will be connected so you can carpool together)

PRICE: $55 per person.

Maximum of 6 participants and a minimum of 3 participants is required. Please register early to ensure you spot.

Who are Hooky Days for?

Hooky Days are for adventurous, active women who value their health in all aspects; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

Hooky Days are the perfect prescription for a needed personal health day.

If you tend to be the one who’s usually in charge of bringing people together and doing all the planning and organizing, this is especially for you. Let yourself be a participant and free to just “be”. All the planning and organizing is done for you. All you have to do is show up with your sense of adventure!

If you have unanswered questions, please contact Patti.

Custom Hooky Days

Hooky Days can be customized for your group of friends, family, team-mates, or co-workers. If you have a group of between 4 and 10 people who would really like to experience a day of stepping away, contact Patti to see what we can create.

Thursday, May 9 ~ Featured activity is Hiking (SOLD OUT!)

HMC is thrilled to announce our Costa Rica adventure 2019 ~ experiencing the Blue Zone

This Costa Rica trip we would like to invite you to join us to learn and enjoy what a blue zone offers. We will incorporate and discuss the 9 habits of blue zone communities that will raise your quality of life and happiness.

A “blue zone” is a region where people commonly live past the age of 100 years. The Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica has been named one of the five classified blue zones of the world, where residents live even longer than those in the rest of the country. Scientists and demographers have classified these longevity hot-spots as having common health traits and lifestyles that result in higher than normal longevity. In “Blue Zone Nicoya Peninsula”, residents live longer than those in other areas of Costa Rica.

While you are in Costa Rica, we will visit Nicoya, the actual geographical core of the Blue Zone. We will meet some of the local people and find our first hand how they live their lives in health and happiness. We will use this knowledge through out our 12 days to enhance our trip and create some positive habits to bring home with us.

Foreign visitors frequently describe Costa Ricans as hospitable and gracious people, known to go out of their way to be courteous and avoid offending others. This can be interpreted to be a result from living the Pura Vida lifestyle. A phrase used in the everyday life that means “The Good Life."

This 12 day adventure will introduce you to the culture, the beautiful natural beauty, cuisine and happiness of Costa Rica.

I can't think of a better way to celebrate the five pillars of HMC, than in a country that truly lives it every day.

Highlights

  • Be in Costa Rica (when it's cold at home) and have the unique opportunity to experience the culture and language of Costa Rica.
  • Experience mud baths and hot pools of the Rincon de la Vieja area.
  • Visit the geographical core of the Blue Zone in Nicoya
  • Do morning yoga and walks on the beach, swim in the ocean daily and kayak.

  • Live the Pura Vida life
Details

Carol Ploen-Hosegood, head monkey at HMC will be your host to Costa Rica where we will hook up with our local coordinators and leaders who are experienced, qualified educational professionals who provide guidance and support throughout the trip. This is an experiential travel opportunity that includes a balance of learning the local culture, giving back and having some time for fun. Truly a trip of a life time.
