Welcome to Instar Coaching C.I.C
As we move towards the Christmas season your thoughts are likely to be focussed on giving to others. This is a lovely way to express your kindness and thoughtfulness and yet this extra withdrawl from your emotional bank account means that nurturing yourself is even more important. I hope you can take some time for yourself to connect with these words today and if anything resonates with you please let me know. The theme of this newsletter is 'Difference'.
Our experience of Christmas can be a time of happiness or suffering. It is an event that we all ‘do’ at the same time and yet we all do it differently. As families come together one of the deciding factors of our experience may be how well we can accept difference.
To be different is to challenge our fundamental need to belong. To notice difference and not be afraid of it is courageous. To accept difference is to acknowledge that your way is the right way – for you – not for everybody else.
Work with difference to find a creative way forward. Explore the opportunities it provides to try something new. In essence, difference gives birth to new ideas – lay down your fear and embrace difference in all its glory.

Positive Psychology Practice Group

The outdoor session of Positive Psychology Practice Group was held in the New Forest this month. We began the group with a structured breathing exercise and a mindful walk. We then had an open discussion on personal development and positive psychology while walking in the forest. In this session we answered the question "What would you like more of in your life?" What would your answer be to the question?

This group is for anyone who has completed at least one of our courses and is a great way to practice the learning from the more structured groups. The monthly cost is £25. It includes 2 online meetings a month and one outdoor session a month. The membership fee also includes 20% off courses and coaching sessions.

Positivity: A Work In Progress

Podcasts are a great way to learn and they are free! In series three we have released the topics of Self Awareness, Money/Wealth, Value, Communication, Self Compassion and Not Taking Things Personally. The latest episode is on DIFFERENCE.
If there is any topic you would like to hear about in a podcast please let me know.

Caroline Livingstone

Caroline is a Crystal Healer and Meditation teacher. We met at a networking group in 2020 and began our journey of skill sharing, Caroline has taught me Mindfulness Meditation and I have taught her Positive Psychology. We enjoyed the marriage of science and spirtuality so much that we wanted to share it with others. To date we have facilitated 5 courses together, with more to come in 2022. Caroline has a wonderful collection of meditations on SoundCloud, search for Crystal Caroline.

Caroline & I share a love of crystals, positive energy, learning, walking in nature and meditation.
