[Live Streamed] Sukha: 30 Days of Presence – Creating Opportunities for Change with Molly Lannon Kenny
August 6 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Friday, repeating until Aug 27, 2021
In this 30 day offering, you will have the opportunity to create your own structure and commitment to making whatever changes you feel would bring you more presence, with the accountability, support and structure of a group.
We will begin on Friday, Aug 6, 2021 to review the plan for the month, and to develop our own individual commitment plans. These might include adding, reducing or eliminating certain foods, patterns or behaviors, taking new actions, developing new habits, or simply heightening awareness of our everyday lives and choices. Each participant will fill out a simple form to understand their dosha – or ayurvedic mind-body type- and we will have a brief overview of the doshas and how understanding them can help us to understand ourselves.
We will then meet every Friday during the month of August to talk about how the week went, what worked, what didn’t, what was challenging, what felt great, how your plan might have been modified to better fit your current lifestyle and desires. You will then be given some suggestions of things to try to support digestion, emotional resilience, and better rest.
This is a 100% judgement-free, Pressure free, individually directed opportunity for lifestyle changes and considerations. No one tells you what to eat or not eat, what to do or not do, the group format is to give you the chance to make a commitment to yourself and to have it supported in a kind and structured way.
Schedule: Four Friday mornings online, August 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th @11am–12:30pm
Cost: $150 for all four sessions. Please inquire for sliding scale, scholarship, or BIPOC rates. Click here to register.
