The ad in the Yukon News for the workshop said Cultivate your Courage, with Celia McBride. Intrigued, I signed up.

I was shocked by my response.

McBride’s workshop was thought-provoking, graceful, intuitive, and professional.

Armed with previous workshop experience, I was surprised how this woman danced all of the participants gracefully through a structured workshop on building confidence, facing fears, setting goals and taking action.

Amazingly, not once in the precious six hours did I feel rushed. McBride’s gifted presentation enables participants, like me, to dig deep underneath the flower bed, touch the roots, and find the pulsing heartbeat of life. Without even realizing, I was guided into the light so skilfully I didn’t know I had soil on my hands. This type of profound teaching is a gift beyond gratitude.

McBride’s workshop also encompassed breath work, stretches, laughter, tears, dancing and comic improvisation, and I loved it all!

Shame on me!

After the workshop, I realized I had a prejudgment that it would probably consist of clichés and be a rehash of stuff I already knew. I could not have been more wrong!

Seemingly effortlessly, McBride gives direction.

She eloquently gives us permission to empower ourselves, and asks, “What’s stopping you?” She gently asks the group to find a solution, then encourages us to set a goal in real time by taking action. Being a connoisseur of workshops, I would say this would be impossible in just six hours. Perhaps a weekend, but six hours is impossible.

Wrong again! It is possible with McBride’s fluid presentation.

Not once did I look at my watch until McBride thanked us for our courage for coming.

The day had flown!

I felt a combination of excitement, achievement, and just sheer joy.

With goals in place and optimism in my hands, I left the workshop wondering when she will do another. An inspiring and motivating workshop led by an extraordinary presenter.
