We rush through our days, and before we know it months and years have flown by. Every now and then a moment comes when we stop, look around, and wonder how we got here.
When we step away from the busyness long enough to really think about this, to explore who we are and what we love, and what we want to do with the rest of our precious lives, things start to happen. We start noticing more, finding signs and doorways, meeting new people, recognising opportunities, and seeing a new way ahead.
Excavate Your Life has been designed as an extraordinarily rich five-week writing and life-exploration course, a unique opportunity to discover what you really want from life, while honing your writing skills. Join me, Beth Kempton, on a wild and beautiful journey towards clarity and direction. Each weekday for five weeks you will get a juicy lesson (audio, video, journaling worksheet and writing challenge) to help you go deep and stretch your writing. By the end of the course, the alchemical nature of it all will ensure you have a stronger sense of what really matters to you, and a clearer idea of where to focus your time, energy and attention. Not to mention having much more confidence in your writing after all that practice…
This is a very special hybrid writing and personal growth course which I have designed to help you find clarity and direction, both in your writing and in your life. I have spent more than a decade helping people to navigate change and reconfigure their lives to do what they love. I have also written a series of self-help books, all connected by a thread of making the most of this precious life.
It’s so easy in the rush of the modern world to go through the motions of each day without stopping to think what it’s all about, whether we are actually awake to our experience, and how we want to make the most of whatever is left, without knowing how long that will be. Personally I find journaling and writing incredibly powerful tools to help me tune in to the world, to my life, to other people, and to myself. I have brought all of this together in this course, with the aim that by the end of it you will be inspired, motivated and ready for whatever might be next.
Sign up now and start excavating your life. You never know what goodness you might find.
