Great weekend at Hoi by the sea

photo-4112 amazing individuals having an experience of Mindfulness and deeper connection with themselves and each other. We enjoyed laughter, insights, fun, dress-ups, good food and wonderful new friendships. Thank you everybody for participating.

To Remind us how to Live with Increasing Awareness:

* Become the Witness (not to enter into every drama that is around us)

* Come to your Senses (getting out of the mind and into the body and present moment)

* Inhabit your Body (feeling ourselves IN the body helps getting us out of  thinking and judging)

* Create a Gap of No Mind (Increase the gap between the thoughts to add more silence and awareness)

* Listen is an Act of Love (True listening with our full attention in silence without giving advice etc)

* Go with the Flow (here we decided that all Irish people fall into that category – thank, Susan)

* Go Slow (Take time to stop, slow down to become aware of the movements and sensations even when peeling potatoes)

* The Gift of Negativity (Become curious rather than judging negative thoughts. See them as opportunities or a wake-up call

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
