Skyros 2019

Skyros Centre Course:

Visioning Your New Life

SC5: July 28-August 10,2019

Are the winds of change blowing in your life? What are they whispering? Are you willing to listen? If so, this course is for you.

You may be feeling burnt out, stressed, or stuck. Or you may be confronting crisis or change. Either way, such times demand that you step forward into a bigger picture of who you are and where you are going.

An interesting spiritual tradition says that when we are living our everyday lives in an everyday way, the soul just rests or even sleeps. But when we are in crisis, or looking for change, or wrestling with something that our ordinary mind doesn’t quite know how to deal with, the soul wakes up. And then life begins to move to a whole new level.

Is this what you’ve been yearning for? If so, you need to stop, listen to your soul’s whispers, look at what reality is telling you, find out where you want to go, and then get to a Yes. 

Saying Yes is a commitment to take whatever is brewing within you and around you into a new behaviour, a new attitude, or a new way of life. An unqualifiedYes sets the next stage into motion, opening you to the intuitions, research, actions, and persistence in the face of difficulties that make it possible to vision and create your new life.

This is what Visioning Your New Life will help you do.

In this course we will be working with imagery and visualisation to:

  • Recognise the catalyst that can start you moving in a new direction
  • Get a vision of the future that would be right for you
  • Say Yes
  • Map out the steps to your new future, and take a leap of faith into a new reality.

This is also a crash course in working with your ‘genius imagination’ so that you can be your own consultant, therapist, and wise guide. The secret is to educate your imagination to bring together the spiritual and the practical – learn to attend to the whisperings of your heart and soul while being grounded in the real world. 

Since you are what you imagine, if where you are is not where you want to be, why not learn to imagine better?

This course is suitable for complete beginners in imagery and visualisation as well as for those who are experienced in using this approach.

Prepare to be surprised. Your images by their very nature don’t always tell you what you expect; rather they will show you what you know deep down inside but haven’t yet told yourself, and they always point the way to transformation.

You will be able to emerge from this course with the clarity and confidence to take your next step in life. You will also have a magic box of tools, indeed a new way of thinking, that you can use to understand, protect, and guide yourself, not just during the workshop but for the rest of your life.


You have changed my life and helped me to have a second chance at living and being happy. Recent course participant.

These courses are based on my books, Life Choices, Life Changes, The Joy of Burnout, and You are what you imagine  as well as my memoir  Into the Woods and Out Again: A memoir of love, madness and transformation. Don’t forget you can always get free downloads of book chapters or MP3s of imagery exercises, or buy any of my books or MP3s of imagery exercises on this website.

The Janus Years Programme (date not fixed; contact us if you want to be notified about courses)

Facilitators: Dina Glouberman, Ph.D, Stewart Mitchell, MPhil

The Janus years are the years, often around what is called mid-life but not necessarily, when you have achieved a measure of success or fulfillment in your life, but are beginning to suspect that all is not completely well, and consider that there may be a need to to review the past, understand where you are now,  and revision the future so that it is more in line with the person you have now become.

This course will support you to negotiate the Janus Years more comfortably, productively, and wisely and to take charge of your life in a new way. It will offer you skills in imagery and visualisation, bodywork, health management, and voice work to take home with you into your life as well as a new map of the territory of your life.

The programme which includes one day sessions, weekends, and individual consultations is designed to help you to take a cool look at how your life is going and to acknowledge where it is working for you, and where it is not resonating with the whispers of your heart and soul. It’s an opportunity also to use the experience and wisdom you have gained in your life to look back, honour and appreciate what what has brought you to this point, to see where you are now, to vision a future that offers you whatever it is you have been missing, and plan your next steps.

This review and revisioning can apply to any  area of life, including work, family, and other relationships, as well as give you a map of your life situation as a whole and where it is leading.

Continuing participant-only support groups will also be set up.

Further details will be posted here.  Or express your interest on Contact Me, and we will add you to the mailing list.
