Focus Intensity Training

I've recently started a new training programme that may be of interest to some of you. It is called Focus Intensity Training and is explained in a book by Shawn Phillips called Strength for Life. It combines strength training and nutrition in a way that combines both body and mind very strongly, so that a level of focus is maintained and the process becomes both meditative and intense. Not surprisingly, it has been affecting other areas of my life so practising focus and enjoying intensity in my strength training has sharpened my focus when I'm working and deepened my relaxation when I'm not working. It feels good.

If you'd like some support to get going on such a program or to apply it in your life, do call me for coaching. Sample sessions are available so that you can try out telephone coaching and see if it works for you. Call for an appointment at 020-8123 9831 or email jan.artofbeing@gmail.com

If you want to order the book, Strength for Life by Shawn Phillips, it is available on my website via Amazon.co.uk. Here's the link: http://www.artofbeing.co.uk/books_uk.php

Moving forwards

Finally, today, I've made the new site go live. It isn't finished but I was having so many problems with the old site that finally I decided to jump into the new one. So apologies that there are some quirks still. I'll be fixing them over the next few days (and weeks and years I expect)

Meanwhile, I'm happy and excited with the development of my workshops and coaching sessions since I've been based in England this past year. The evening series in London is continuing, I'll be working at a new centre near Chester (Integral Life Centre) starting in August and I am teaching a week-long vacation workshop at Cortijo-Romero in Spain this November. So if you want a break from the winter before all the Christmas preparations take over, come and join us in Spain.

And as I sit here, on this bright sunny evening, the light is glistening on the leaves, the wind is soft and warm, and I feel very blessed.

First post

Hello to all of my Art of Being friends,
The beginning of a blogspace and a way to communicate in a friendly way, share ideas, let my inspirations flow easily .... and more. I hope this new development will serve us all. If you have ideas about it, please let me know.

In the meanwhile, my life continues with Frieder in England, where we are looking after my elderly father. The change of scene has opened a new chapter in our lives together. We're both enjoying the new opportunities and new friends that are possible now that we are in Europe for an extended time. I've found a couple of places that may be suitable for an ongoing group in the South-East and I hope to have some dates to announce soon. I also now have a session room that I can use in Hampton Court for individual sessions. Although I enjoy telephone sessions, there are times when a face-to-face meeting is important so I'm happy to now be able to offer that.

The Gift of Being will be happening very soon so I hope to see some of you.
With love
