Course Description


This year-long series of monthly women’s gatherings is designed to move us beyond surface-level goal setting to deep personal intentions that resonate on a soul level.

Each month we will meet online to create and fine tune our intentions using a range of mindfulness tools and creative mandala practices that allow us to tap into the subconscious and ask,

 What really matters to me?

 What do I really want in my life?

In the nurturing space of our sacred circle we will dive deep with powerful processes that allow us to:

  • Let go of what no longer serves
  • Celebrate success with mindful gratitude - and create the space for more of what we love to show up in our lives
  • Unleash and rediscover our creativity
  • Set mindful intentions and hold ourselves and each other accountable for allowing them to unfold
  • Fine tune our intentions on a monthly basis
  • Make space for a mindfulness practice in our lives
  • Share our experiences and support each other in our sacred circle.

Make 2018 your year of abundance by joining a community of like-minded women as we journey to the heart of our deepest intentions in a safe, nurturing environment.

WHEN: 4th Tuesday of every month.

DURATION: January 2018 until December 2018

COST: $30/month

Sara Phillips is a mindfulness practitioner who has just finished studying the Power of Awareness course with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach. She is also a NLP practitioner, a parent and life coach and an experienced workshop facilitator who has taught mindfulness to parents, children, teenagers and schools.

Sara’s experiences as a mother, coach and family support worker have shown her that women who nurture themselves are able to find creative solutions to the challenge of balancing our many roles with personal fulfilment.

Her intention is to create a community of women who support each other to live mindfully and abundantly.

This series of monthly gatherings will help you to:

  • tune into your inner heart wisdom,
  • set a direction in your life,
  • cultivate those qualities and values you would like more of in your life
  • be in a supportive community of women with mindfulness, deep nurturing, creativity & spirit.

Each month we will meet in a circle of women to:
  • centre ourselves in mindfulness and reflect on what is most alive for us right now
  • celebrate what we have enjoyed & what we are grateful for that month
  • share what we are ready to let go or no longer have in our life
  • tune into our inner compass from deep within our heart and set our deep inner intentions (read more here)
  • create a mandala that reflects our intentions for the next month
  • learn different mandala techniques

Sara will integrate all of her experience as a life coach, NLP practitioner, mindfulness practitioner and creative spirit to facilitate this transformative group.

A Life Pie Mandala I made last year while completing The Artist Way with Julia Cameron-

just one of the mandala exercises we will do.

Read more about Sara's intentions for this group in the blog article: Setting Deep Intentions:

Mindfulness: helps to centre you & allows space for you to hear your own inner heart wisdom and practice some of those life qualities you may want to cultivate more of in your life : loving kindness, forgiveness, self-compassion

Mandalas: using your right brain and being creative allows you to access and program your subconscious and create a visual reminder of your deep intentions. Being creative with mandalas is also a very mindful and calming activity. No prior experience necessary.

Mapping Intentions: 'Plant the seeds of deep intention and little by little things change.' Jack Kornfield. Reflective coaching questions will help you to identify what really matters to you and empower you to set realistic intentions to create more of what is important in your life. Sharing your intentions in a supportive group monthly will help to inspire you and I love the accountability of reporting in to a group.
