WHAT YOU EXPERIENCE

The most common healing experience a woman has on an Aziza retreat is that she no longer feels alone.

Hearing other women share from the heart cannot be underestimated as a powerful way to feel connected through our common humanity.

One of the most empowering experience is to understand that you can positively shift your life perspective with conscious, thoughtful exploration of potentially self-limiting attitudes or beliefs.

What you gain is Self Knowledge.

Women with limited creative experience are constantly amazed at how much they enjoy expressing themselves with colour and texture.

Participants are pleasantly surprised by the depth and relevance of what they learn from their creations.

The most liberating experience a woman has on our retreats is recognizing the patterns she unconsciously repeats that interfere with and separate her from living her best life.

A whole new world opens when a woman realizes she's got brand new, healthy, life affirming options to consider as she moves forward.

CAREER, FINANCIAL, EMOTIONAL, COMMUNICATION & HEALTH PATTERN BUSTING


 

 

CAREER PATTERN SOLUTION

Saturday April 19 & Sunday August 17, 2014

How do you feel about your career direction, income, job description? Are you bored, stuck, ready for something different? Do you need to explore what holds you back?

What is your relationship like with co workers, boss and any authority figure. How do you fit into the work culture you've chosen? Do you keep meeting the same types of people in your employment?

We're going to spend intense hours looking at the blueprint you got from your parents about employment. What you learned hard work looks like. What you deserve. What success feels like. How you handle conflict, criticism, praise. If any or all of these concerns trouble your daily life, please join us!

FINANCIAL Pattern FREEDOM:

Sunday JUNE 15, 2014

If you're struggling with the cycle of poverty and just enough, where some months you're feeling OK, and others you don't know how you'll manage, this retreat is for you.

If you bounce between fear and worry, turmoil and insecurity, and can't sleep because of 'bag lady' syndrome dreams, come join us.

This intensive program uncovers the blueprint your parents gave you about how to relate to money. Understanding this blueprint is essential to finding your way out of the cycle of scarcity and moving into a healthy relationship to money.

We'll explore attitudes towards spending, saving, having, not having, generosity, withholding, scarcity mentality and more.

EMOTIONAL Pattern ILLUMINATION

Sunday July 20

Do you cycle through feeling OK and then not OK at a sign of a trigger? Does drama persist in your daily life? Do you feed off drama?

How do you respond to conflict, disappointment, fear, anger, joy, surprise, interruptions?

Do you know why you feel the way you do? Can you stay present to this moment and find it enough?

We're going to look at the emotional climate from your youth to see the impact it still has on your adult life. The models you learned for reacting to specific situations.

If you're weary of your emotional roller coaster, join us to explore the unconscious hooks that are currently tugging, and gain tools to free yourself.

COMMUNICATION Pattern CLARITY

Saturday September 20

How well do you express yourself? Do you feel heard? Do you stick up for yourself?

Can you ask for your needs to be met? Can you ask for help? Or are you full of resentment at being left out? Do you listen well or daydream? Are you misunderstood?

We'll have a focused exploration of what communication looked like when you were growing up and how that's affecting your self expression now.

There is nothing as scary and satisfying as learning to sincerely say the essential life-transforming words 'YES' and 'NO.

Clear communication creates boundaries. Healthy boundaries are the path to happiness.

If you need some help with communication, please register for this essential program.
