Welcome to ‘Say it out Loud’

 

 

A two week workshop, for kickstarting creative projects, getting out of your own way and working in sync with the lunar cycle.

Next Workshop: TBC.

By Laura Adams & Java Bere

What is ‘Say It Out Loud’?

One Summer, under the new moon, Laura and I went camping together with our families and we wrote the beginnings of a workshop and a space where:

 

We will support you to:

 

  • Say your intentions out loud. Declare them with boldness and power (even if you feel afraid).
  • Get out of your own way.
  • Unstick your creative journey.
  • Help you find the confidence to kickstart an idea /project/dream.
  • Pick a goal – personal or professional that needs action.
  • Find the tools and self-belief to get going.
  • Understand the cycles of the moon and how you can harness the natural ebb and flow of your body to maximise your creative flow and productivity.

 

How the course works:

 

  • We start with the introduction emails to the course on the day before the New Moon, and there will be an 8pm zoom call the next day, under the New Moon.
  • Thrice weekly emails in your inbox to help unlock your creative journey. Theses will include tasks, motivational literature and a whole lot of joy.
  • A facebook community to share our progress and receive constructive, positive  feedback.
  • A moon inspired playlist to keep you humming.
  • A simple meal plan to prepare for our final zoom meeting on full moon, where we celebrate all the hard work we’ve done in the previous two weeks.

 

What you will come out with:

 

  • A stronger sense of self and purpose.
  • Learning how to work and create with the lunar cycle
  • Tools for shaping, honing in on and pinning down your creative or business idea: Clarifying your vision
  • Finding your way through creative play
  • Constructive feedback and active support
  • An action Plan for your business/creative idea

 

This is for you if:

 

  • You have an idea to change career, but you’re unsure where to start.
  • You have a creative idea but a mental block of how to get it off the ground.
  • You feel lost after having kids, you have a rough dream and need to hone your ideas.
  • You need support and confidence boosting to embark on a personal creative project.
  • You need a focused time and a deadline to dedicate time to yourself. Accountability.

 

Also, Why the Moon?

Within this process of creating and running a business alongside juggling parenting two small children, one of them only at nursery a few mornings a week (which I feel incredibly grateful for), I have had to figure out systems of working to maximise the time and energy I have. And one of the most powerful tools I have used is to work in sync with the moon. Because it has taught me that not every day is the day to be full energy. Rest is as important as action. But when your energy is dynamic, harness it and milk it for all it’s worth. And when it’s time to rest, do so, without beating yourself up. Because you will be allocating your creative tasks to the time when your energy is at it’s peak.

This is a course where you will have the two of us and the opportunity to pick our brains for the price of one!

What previous students have said:

 

‘I am actually feeling EXCITED and STRONG and although I have made big changes of direction and life choices before, I actually feel quite CALM this time, which is what the workshop has given me.’

 

‘I’ve said this before – but I honestly think this workshop has served me better than any therapy that I’ve had (and I’ve had a lot!!!!). I know that I’ve still got a long way to go but somehow, it doesn’t feel half as scary now.’

 

‘Having accountability for your goals was incredibly motivating. I’m already raring to go for the next new moon! I will definitely be referring back to the content month after month.’

 

‘A wonderfully affirming and generative space for daring to dream big and small’

 

‘It was just what I needed to consolidate my thinking and create a tangible action plan at just the right time in my life, so I would heartily recommend it to anyone else at a similar crossroads in their life.SIOL gave me the inspirational kick-up-the-butt I needed to create a clear vision of where I want to be, along with an achievable action plan to get me there.’

 

‘A powerful, mindful experience.’

 

‘It was thought provoking, encouraging me to look deeply into my goals and intentions and to set plans in motion. I loved the regular emails, which provided gentle nudges.’

 

‘Inspiring, life-giving, magical’
