What a fabulous way to spend the weekend!
On Saturday, June 10th, 2023, I had the incredible opportunity to host my nutrition workshop in the heart of nature. Nestled within the picturesque Sentry Circle in Northallerton, a field became our serene haven as we embraced the warmth of the sun. Surrounded by a group of wonderful women, our shared focus was on prioritizing self-care and wellness, embarking on a journey of holistic nourishment.
As I arrived on a tranquil Friday afternoon to prepare for the nutrition workshop, a slight hint of uncertainty lingered in my mind. Setting up the gazebo alone seemed like a daunting task. However, my worries swiftly dissipated as a wave of camaraderie enveloped me. In no time, a group of compassionate women came forward, lending their hands to assist me in pitching the gazebo amidst the gentle gusts of wind. The synergy of teamwork permeated the air, creating a truly heartwarming atmosphere.
With the groundwork successfully laid, Saturday dawned, and the day unfolded with an abundance of enriching experiences. Each passing hour held a diverse array of around 12 workshops, each offering a unique opportunity for growth and exploration. From yoga and meditation sessions to belief-coding, kinesiology and nutrition to name just a few, the offerings were as varied as the participants themselves.
Amidst this vibrant tapestry of knowledge-sharing and self-discovery, the sense of community thrived. Women from different walks of life seamlessly connected, wholeheartedly embracing the spirit of support and cooperation. The workshops became catalysts for empowering conversations, as participants immersed themselves in the teachings, eagerly absorbing every moment of enlightenment.
In this environment brimming with positivity and shared aspirations, barriers dissolved, and connections deepened. The collective energy of the gathering amplified the impact of each workshop, fostering a space where personal growth and wellness flourished.
The weekend encompassed numerous significant milestones for my fledgling business Hummingbird Nutrition, marking a period of both professional accomplishments and personal growth for myself. My workshops were about empowering women to take back their health by thriving with nutrition, understanding the challenges of menopause, and how to naturally navigate this time with minimal symptoms, whether on HRT or not!
During the intervals between facilitating my workshops, I seized the opportunity to participate in a captivating workshop led by Sarah-Jane from Practicallypositiveineveryway. Little did I know that this experience would push the boundaries of what I believed to be possible. I accomplished the seemingly unimaginable feat of breaking an arrow using the force from my own neck. It was a moment of awe and empowerment, challenging my preconceived notions and reminding me of the incredible potential within each of us.
The synergy between the glorious sunshine, the idyllic setting, and the collective determination to cultivate a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle created an unforgettable experience. Together, we immersed ourselves in a day filled with enlightening discussions, empowering one another to make positive choices for our well-being.
The memory of that remarkable Saturday, filled with heartfelt collaboration and the pursuit of self-care, remains etched in my mind. It serves as a testament to the transformative power of community, reminding us all of the joy and fulfillment that can be found in coming together to prioritize our well-being.
We united as a community, cherishing the beauty of self-care and embracing the path to optimal wellness and you too can experience this magical event as it is to be repeated in June 2024, but only with double the empowerment!
I hope to see you there!
