Tell us about your upcoming workshop
The workshop is for people that desire to live their lives differently and want some tangible tools that they use in their everyday lives to be more at peace. It’s about learning the relationship you have with yourself through walking a Chakra Labyrinth, a series of meditations, and creating mindfulness jars so that we better understand the impact of the inner emotions and how they play out in our lives. Plus we have tons of fun doing it!
What do you love about teaching others about mindfulness?
Mindfulness is simply a tool that helps us gain a sense of freedom and liberation from ourselves. Its helps us take the cloak of resentment, guilt, anger, sadness, disappointment off and a live a life in which we are authentically aligned with ourselves. In this aligned state, where we start to hear the whispers of our soul voice that guides us towards our true self.
What inspires you?
This is what my friend Jana Deluca wrote about me.
Attending Jivi’s mindfulness sessions was a gift on so many levels, from, Jivi sharing her time, thoughts, creative coaching and mentoring. She led us in and around mind sets and produced ideas and questions that gave us answers but had us asking for more! Jivi introduced us to self-care of our mind and spirit, which is the gift we give ourselves. After a couple of these sessions external impact was realized in better understanding of not only my own lenses but to the perspective my clients may have in a situation. I feel more confident approaching and dealing with my clients. An hour with Jivi is simply not enough when she ‘tunes in’ and turns it on. Her gentle inquiries, use of humour and respect make you realize you are in a truly safe place in these sessions. Thank you, Jivi!
Letters like this inspire me because they show that mindfulness makes a profound difference in people’s quality of life!
Jivi’s Sacred Balance Workshop will be on Saturday, August 20th in Victoria
