Design a Whole Human Life: An Intensive Day-Long Urban Retreat

August 11, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm


An Intensive Day Long Urban Retreat for a Total Life Realignment using Design Thinking, Neuropsychology, & Somatic Wellness Techniques

If you have the desire to bring more conscious intention and passion to how you live and work,

If you are feeling energetically drained or unfocused,

If you experience self-sabotage or limiting beliefs that hold you back,

If you are trying to break a pattern or create a new habit in an area of your life,

If you keep running into obstacles making progress along your path,

If you struggle to identify the best course of action is to take, or what decision is the right one for you,

If you feel less joy in your work or are seeking a new passion in your life,

If you are seeking to engage more creativity and risk-taking,

If you desire to create changes in your life that stick,

…This program is for you.

We create our experience of life. We either do this unconsciously, following outside expectations and patterns of our past, and the fears and worries of the future. Or, we can consciously create how we move through this life with the awareness and empowerment that comes from conscious choice-making.

Our external world is a reflection of our internal world. When something doesn’t feel right for us internally, or we run up against roadblocks or feel drained by how we are living, this is an indication that we are out of alignment in some area of our life and have an opportunity to create a positive change.

Sometimes it is hard to know what to change, or how. Or, if we try to make a change, it might not stick or be the “right” change. Often we try to use just our minds, thinking from the neck up only.

When we engage our Whole Human wisdom (head, gut, and heart, or mind, body, and soul), we make decisions from a place of empowerment. We cultivate confidence to make choices that are for our highest good, rather than out of obligation or fear. We build grit and resilience, taking risks from a place of self-generated safety and passionate curiosity.

We find greater ease and joy as we learn to consciously design our own experience of life.

Workshop Description

In this intensive workshop you will learn the Whole Human Life Model, Design Thinking (a human-centered methodology for creative problem-solving), and specific tools you can use on a daily basis to troubleshoot and design your life with greater self-leadership on your unique path.

Some topics to design your life include:

  • Managing your Energy in different areas of your life (e.g., finances, career, family, health, etc.)
  • Uncovering limiting Core Beliefs and learn how to use them to make progress
  • Storytelling, Neurobiology, & Writing your own “New Normal” Narrative
  • Somatic Experiencing and Embodied Visualization
  • Design Thinking as a Life Hack Tool
  • Yoga Nidra (“Sleep” Meditation), Mindfulness, and Breathing Tools for Integrating Change

Part education, part collaboration, part experiential learning, we will work together in small groups and pairs, and individually to learn the design thinking techniques hands-on using a real-life challenge you are facing.

At the end of the session, you will:

  • Gain clarity & insight on a current personal or professional problem
  • Learn a set of tools and processes you can use in your daily life to real-time trouble-shoot, problem-solve, and make empowered decisions
  • And, leave with your own Whole Human Life Model for consciously designing your personal growth with greater balance and alignment for success

Participants will also receive a private, one-on-one coaching session (a $150 value) with Kathryn after the workshop to maximize the integration and results of the workshop in your life.


Wear clothes you can comfortably move in. No experience in yoga, meditation, or other techniques is necessary or required.

Bring a problem you’d like to explore, a notebook, an open mind and heart, and your critical thinking cap!

Coffee and tea in the morning, and a healthy lunch and snacks will be provided.

Please contact the instructor, Kathryn Cornelius, with any questions!
