Margie Braunstein at Happiness & Its Causes Conference 2018

I am feeling very grateful to Petrea King and the Quest for Life Foundation for giving me the opportunity to live out a long held dream of speaking at the Happiness & Its Causes Conference this year. While it was terrifying to have such a large audience (over 1500), I got over prepared and it all went well. I hope this leads to more public speaking enagements as I really loved the experience and would love to keep contributing to the world in this way. Here it is if you are interested.

It was a Pecha Kucha format. 20 slides. 20 seconds per slide. Just to add to the pressure. Lol.

Replenish your spirit.

Replenish your spirit.

Are you feeling exhausted and want to replenish in body, mind and spirit?

19-21 October 2018

Phenomenal Woman Retreat… Walk to the sand at beautiful Killcare Beach. Refresh your spirit in the sea…

So many women that I talk to tell me how exhausted they feel. With the demands of work, family and the challenges of finding time for self care, you can feel so empty and tired. I didn’t create this retreat so that you have to fulfull another expectation and be ‘phenomenal’. I created it so that you could take time out, rest and then FEEL phenomenally GOOD! Inside of yourself…

I want you to meditate on the beach, paddle your toes in the salt water, find time for real conversations and to chill out. That is why I have created this beautiful weekend. Just for you. To retreat from the demands of life and to take time to focus on the most important person in the world… YOU.

You will be given the space to meditate, find stillness, listen to your heart and be in the company of like minded women. There will be healthy food, a gorgeous bedroom in a luxury beach house, crisp white sheets, gorgeous music, candles, the loving presence of other women and inspiring teaching to support you to find your own best answers. When you feel peaceful, answers arise organically…

And did I mention? There will be peace and space… plenty of peace and space 

Please join me for a replenishing weekend. Email me now for more info and to secure your space!

I need to get final numbers in place now, so if you are considering joining us then please send me a message so that I can save you a space.

19-21 October 2018 with arrival from 4pm Friday and leave after lunch on Sunday by 3pm.

Hope to see you there. Make sure you book early so that you secure your place. In peace and joy…

Love Margie xx

Let it Go

Let it Go

I love this poem given to me by a dear friend and colleage, Bernadette. Whenever I read it I am reminded to settle down, to allow life to happen instead of pushing and straining to ‘make it happen’. It really is at the heart of the Phenomenal Woman Retreat too which is about empowerment and letting go of the old so that what you truly want in your heart can become your springboard for living.

She Let Go She let go.

Without a thought or a word, she let go.

She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head. She let go of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons.

Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.

She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go. She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go. She let go of all of the memories that held her back. She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.

She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.

She didn’t analyse whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.

No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.

There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that. In the space of letting go, she let it all be.

No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.

There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that. In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore.

Rev. Safire Rose

I also love this clip from the children’s movie Frozen. She is brave and strong and over apologising for herself! Worth a few minutes to listen to the lyrics.

Please join me 19-21 October at beautiful Killcare Beach for a connected, warm and inspiring retreat right at the beach and only 1.5 hours north of Sydney. Click here to find out more info and to secure your space.
