Wake Up! Escape A Life On Autopilot (2 nights)

Wake Up! Escape A Life On Autopilot (2 nights)

With Chris Barez-Brown
Background

With the demands that we have on our time and attention, it is no wonder that we find it tough to always be who we truly are. Just to survive, we have to socialise to the norms and make constant compromises just to ‘fit in’. Our habit loops take over. Before long, we have lost touch with what makes us special and unique.

Wake Up! is an app, a book and, in this case, a 2 night/2.5 day program that helps you step back from all the busyness and reconnect with who you are, what’s important to you and how you spend your time.

 

Working with dynamic learning and development consultancy Upping Your Elvis’ unique creative approaches, we help you become more conscious and aware, giving you the skills and confidence to stay on track and not let the world shape your daily experience for you. The Wake Up! Experience goes deeper than Wake Up! the book or app can ever go but is based on the same principles of escaping autopilot so we can all lead a more technicolor and extraordinary life.

It is held in idyllic surroundings in Lyme Regis, Dorset, and involves a full submersion into beautiful countryside, nutritious local food and the collaboration of like minded folk.

Brilliant for teams and individuals alike and ideal for anybody looking for a personal boost.  Also, undoubtedly good for anyone wishing to become a more accomplished and creative leader.

Who is it for?

Anyone who feels like they need time to have some fun, get their energy right and give attention very selfishly on themselves. It’s particularly suited to those who love creativity and surrounding themselves with beautiful nature.

Where is it held?

At Rhode Hill House, Lyme Regis, Dorset, the home of the Baréz-Brown family

What will we do?

This will be a creative immersion into your life. You will get a chance to play with your perspectives to help you connect with your passions and your unique talents, making sure that they show up every day.

You will also learn some pretty cool ways to ensure that every day counts, your energy is working well for you and that when you feel stuck, you have ways to get moving again.

Creative approaches are at the heart of this workshop so be prepared to throw yourself in. We won’t spend much time with clever models and learning frameworks; in fact none at all. The workshop is deeply experiential where you will go on a journey with like-minded folk and expand your understanding of what’s really possible. And whilst we do it, we’ll have a stomp along the sea, be fed the most nutritious food from the best chefs in Dorset (aka the River Café crew) and reconnect with what loving life is all about.

What Wake Up! The Experience will deliver 
  •    Confidence – a renewed confidence in yourself
  •    Excitement –  passion and energy for your work and life
  •    Creativity – skills that you can use everyday to remain more conscious and aware
  •    Clarity – a clear plan of what needs to change for you to tap into your unique genius everyday
  •    Inspiration – about your world and the role you play in it
  •    Impact – you will be in the driving seat of your life both at work and at home

Wake Up! The Experience is available as a bespoke group event. Please contact us to discuss your requirements in detail.
