There’s this idealized version of the holidays that we are all sold. Families gathered around a table, connecting, enjoying each other, and the big perfectly cooked holiday meals.
Traditions being shared, stories being told, laughter ringing out, presents being opened, all creating an atmosphere of warmth and love.
And it’s true—the holidays can be a magical and loving time.
And that’s certainly not everyone's experience.
There are people who have no family around and will be alone on the holidays.
Others are having their first holiday after the loss of a loved one.
Some people are divorced and grieving because their kids are with their other parent.
There are some who are in the hospital and not able to enjoy the festivities.
Others are having financial challenges and feeling guilty that they can’t give gifts like they usually do.
There are others who are resentful because they go all out for others and feel disappointed by the lack of reciprocity.
There are people who have challenging family dynamics and feel obligated to show up anyway.
Each of these is a valid holiday experience. It is not the scenario that creates the feelings- it’s how we relate to what’s happening that creates our inner experience. We create all sorts of beliefs and judgments (aka emotional baggage) about ourselves and others that get in the way of celebrating the holidays in meaningful ways.
Our emotional baggage can look a lot like this...
What's your ideal holiday experience?
Perhaps your ideal holiday would be quiet and relaxing. Or adventurous and indulgent. Or maybe it would be filled with family and tradition.
Whatever version you’re hoping for, you can’t create it if you’re dragging around old hurts and resentments from holidays past or if you believe you can’t enjoy the holidays unless it lives up to the idealized vision.
Left unexamined, these stories and beliefs keep playing out, and then we think, “This is just the way it is.”
In this 90-minute class, we will help you identify and clear some of your emotional baggage to create a more harmonious and peaceful holiday season.
Some of the gifts available to YOU
