WHO AM I? Collage Workshop

23 June @ The Driffold, TR3 6PA

Who are you? Do you know? Do you wonder if you are living your authentic self?

Collage workshops are a great way for exploring those parts of ourselves that are less easy to access with our thinking mind.

We’ll be using images, words, and colours to explore who we are, and we’ll also explore those parts of ourselves that we want to keep hidden, so we come away with a sense of who we are in all our glory!

You might be surprised at what you create….and what you learn about yourself and your path.

The day begins at 9.30am and finishes at 1pm. All materials and drinks will be provided. Fun is optional, but likely to be present…

Please note that the boards we create will be smaller than the start-of-the-year Vision Board Workshop.

To book a place julia@juliamacdonald.co.uk or 07964 721843. Cost £40 payable in advance.

Breathing Space

1 July 18:15 @ Truro Methodist Church

Be still, be safe, be strengthened by an hour of reflection in song and silence.

For those of faith and of no faith Breathing Space is a place where people familiar with church and those who simply want some time to be, can come together in a space of welcome, reflection and peace which takes place within the Christian faith.

Expect music, song, silence, poetry around the theme of Kindness…

Our small a cappella group of singers, Sanctuary, will be singing. They’ve been described as ‘heavenly’.

All welcome. No charge.

The Healing Journey

14 July @ Degibna Chapel Helston TR12 7PR

This is a one-day workshop suitable for ANYONE on a healing journey of any type. If we find ourselves in any situation where we feel disempowered, then we can consciously enter a healing journey.

When I’ve run this workshop before I’ve had great feedback from participants about its usefulness.

I use my own healing journeys of various types, and my years of working with others on their own healing journey as rich material.

You will come away with a plan for your own journey and a booklet of notes to support you.

Unusually, this workshop is being offered for a donation fee (with a minimum of £10 to cover costs) payable on the day. Usually a day’s workshop costs £75. So this is a wonderful opportunity to take this workshop at a cost that you can afford. If you’d like to join us, please e-mail me first to check there are still places.

Bring packed lunch with you. 10am - 4pm. Doors open 9.30am.

Reclaim Health

14 - 16 August @ The Driffold, TR3 6PA

Reclaim Your Life!

Are you fed up with feeling unwell? Have you found that people say they can’t do anything for you?

If you’re ready to make some significant changes in your life, then this 3 day course, designed by the Reclaim Team, of which Julia is a founder member, could be your way forward.

Symptoms – Many, many people suffer from troublesome and distressing symptoms for which scans and blood tests cannot provide an explanation. In fact only half of all symptoms are caused by pathology such as cancer, allergies and infections. Those which cannot be explained in this way are called “functional symptoms”. Such symptoms are found in illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome/ME, fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome. Functional symptoms such as pain are certainly not imaginary – they are very real and may be totally disabling, but are difficult to treat. Carers of people with functional symptoms often struggle to understand their illness. We hope that the information on our website will help.

The science – Functional illnesses are caused by a disturbance in the body (maybe following a viral infection or other illness) which becomes stuck in an inappropriate state. Research supports the use of methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and breathing retraining to show people how to alter their body state and bring the body and mind back into a healthy balance.

The intervention – The 3 x half day course integrates techniques including mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural coaching, NLP and breath work.

You might benefit from attending our programme, which is designed to enable you to:

Understand how you can control your mind and body to function more effectively

 Learn tools and techniques to reset mind and body balance

Implement strategies to help you reclaim your health and wellbeing. 

If you’d like to apply for a place on the next Reclaim Health course, e-mail julia@juliamacdonald.co.uk for an application form which you fill in and return to Julia. We then book an initial 1 hour coaching session at a cost of £50. If after the session we both decide the course is the right intervention for you, we offer you a place on the next course, and the initial coaching fee is deducted from the total cost. If we decide it’s not appropriate for you, Julia will give you some suggestions of ways forward that you could pursue.
