The Necessity of Ending 2011 Consciously
I hope that you had a fantastic Holiday! I know for many of us the Holidays aren't always about fun and gifts, but sheer survival...lol! That said, I hope that your Holiday was both fantastic and you survived!
As we now draw a close to the year that was 2011, many of you may immediately begin thinking of the year ahead while considering your goals and what it means to turn the page on this current year. Hell, some of you may very well want to go ahead and slam the whole damn book on 2011 and crack open 2012 asap!
Yet, I want to suggest just the opposite... If you can, really sit still awhile and contemplate on all the changes and growth you've experienced in 2011. Make some time to slow down and take a very conscious inventory of this last year - What did you learn? How did you love? What did you create? What did you cultivate in the garden that was 2011?
Our culture--so busied by filling up with the next thing that will make us 'happy' and so afraid to rest in the empty void of space between breaths--doesn't really teach us to take a conscious inventory of the things that are ending in our lives. So sit down and take another look at your 2011 garden and assess what is dead, dying, and/or ready to die. Can you admit that to yourself? How does it feel to know that something in your life is ending?
My assistant and I were sitting in my office about a month ago talking about the various things we wanted to put into the 'Happy Oholidays' special we launched for the Holidays this year when suddenly she looked at me and said, "Robert, you know what you need to do? You need to do an audio workshop on how to consciously END 2011."
I have always treated the end of each year ritualistically as time in which I examine the year ending, what has been changing in my life, and what needs to be let go of -- therefore I knew immediately that she was onto something huge! In fact it's usually not until mid-January that I even begin to think about my coordinates for the New Year ahead.
All said, my assistant's suggestion did indeed inspire me to create an audio workshop called: 'Endings-A Conscious Inventory and Release of Last Year' which I based on my own personal annual process and what I intuitively know are your blind spots when it comes to what it takes to let go.
Similar to my Inner Shifts and Coaching Series work this audio workshop has a lecture portion and guided meditation segment. Yet it also has a guided ritual too!
All of which thread together exquisitely to create a conscious transformational way to end the year like you've probably never experienced before. What's more is I designed this audio workshop such that you can re-use it at the end of every year going forward as a powerful way to consciously end each year, whether that be based on our collective calendar or your birthday!
Here's a more detailed description of this audio course which is only available for one more week, so if this speaks to you don't delay in getting it! I really feel this may be the best contribution to next year's potential that you can make.
Awaken to your future by putting your past to rest!
So often we look to the New Year as a time to launch new plans and revive old goals, but what becomes of the unfinished business that gets swept aside throughout the year as we turn our attentions forward? Join Robert for a thought-provoking 3-part seminar, "Endings: A Conscious Inventory and Release of Last Year" and learn how invoking the power of ritual to bury your past can help sow seeds of the future you intended!
This 3-part seminar contains a Lecture, Ritual, and Guided Meditation to engage at your own pace. Throughout the Lecture, Robert encourages you to stop, reflect and journal your way to breakthroughs like you've never experienced them before! Make no mistake; this Endings event requires your conscious participation to make the experience meaningful. The Guided Meditation and Ritual will lead you into a new awareness of the ways you may have been resistant to letting go and offers a profoundly compassionate path to resolving the past.
Learn how a Ritual of Ending and soulful reflection can help heal your past, empower your present, and illuminate the future of your choosing! Although this audio program is geared toward teaching you let go of the unresolved aspects of last year, it's a powerful tool you'll want to return to again and again!
This audio course contains the following downloads*:
- 1 Lecture MP3 (appx. 3 hours.)

Whether you invest in this yourself via this audio workshop or not, please do yourself the greatest service by not entering into your goal setting for 2012 whilst lugging the 'dead' of your life around at the same time, impeding your momentum and distorting your clarity.
I'll be back next week with a FREE download that will pick up where this audio workshop leaves off. Have a conscious and contemplative New Year's Eve - and ok, party a little bit too!
