I don’t know about you, but I tend to have a feast or famine type of schedule. Well, never really famine, but my work tends to follow seasonal peaks and valleys – December tends to be a quieter month on the workshop front, which gives me a chance to regroup from the Fall months and prepare for the holidays, and the end of June marks the end of my training season until the Fall rolls around again. Once the Compassion Fatigue Conference is done, I tend to spend a week in recovery mode (napping, dealing with email backlog, reading novels and taking time to smell the peonies in my garden). Then after about a week, I start getting a surge of a different kind of energy – not the workshop development vibe, but the “let’s chip away at the piles” type of groove. This is quickly followed by “holy s***! There is so much to do! Which could then easily be followed by feeling discouraged and going back to the couch to read more of Tilda Shalof’s new book and eat more cherries. But here’s what I do instead, and it works every time: I trick myself into getting through the piles. Take my freezer, for example:
You asked for it, so we designed it…The Dream Big Start Small Teleseminar
A 5 week teleclass with Françoise Mathieu and Robin Cameron that will get to the heart of what you want, and provide the tools for getting there.
Starts September 2012 – Five biweekly teleclasses (live and recorded events)
Each call will be offered live and via recording so you can listen at your convenience. You will be supported every step of the way as you break your goal down into manageable parts and deal with all of the obstacles that have interfered with your success. We want to help you identify and intensify your goal, deal with stubborn obstacles, transform your inner critic into an ally, make space in your life for your big dream and your best self, and create an inner and outer support network to keep you on track!
What could you accomplish if you had this kind of warm creative energy and supportive accountability behind your goal?

Wow – What a party!!! For those of you who were among the participants of the second annual compassion fatigue conference, which was held last week in Kingston, a great big thank you for your amazing positive energy, laughter and willingness to share and connect. I promised to share some resources with participants, particularly Dr Linda Duxbury’s reports, so they are available below.
