New offerings on the horizon... excitement is rising

Hello from sunny Cairns,

where I rejuvenate with my family this week.  And before you think "lucky her", let me tell you that the challenges are endless here even before leaving Melbourne.  There was the FOR to deal with - FEAR of Relaxation.  What if I relax so well that I don't want to come back or will find it hard to get back into my Melbourne routine and life.  And the FOMO, the Fear Of Missing Out. What if something earth-moving happens in Melbourne while I am in Cairns?  Ah, the agony.  And having to let go of parts of my work - I love my work.  Can you relate to this?  What happened here is common for all of us in some way, we are living in the future, where we are simply caught up in our thoughts.

What helped me out was a simple way to bring my thoughts & feelings into the present, where life happens. Click here to see if it will help you too. A simple breathing exercise is what helped me with present moment mindfulness too, and I used it for my fear of flying, and the unsteadiness of going out on a boat, and when the kids and husband combo all got a bit too much.  Here it is...  Hope it will help you too.  Even if you're not away on holidays :).

Classes continue throughout the school holidays this week. You are in for a treat as Jen is teaching all the classes until I return on Saturday, 11th July.  We are so lucky to have her.  Thank you Jen.

Enjoy your practice and the school holidays.

With all my gratitude,  
Bettina Pfannkuch
