The “Gift” of Immunity @ The Light Cellar
Dec 4 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
We are getting “hands-on” at this seasonal gro social – join us to “talk turkey” on immunity, gut health, fermented foods and how these are connected!
Luka Symons  is a C.H.N.C. Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant for people who are looking to reclaim their food and body groove. Luka will share her knowledge related to gut health and the connection to immunity while we chop and chat our way to preparing a lovely, seasonal ferment – one that you can take home for your Christmas dinner, or gift to a loved one cooking for you. 
We will enjoy the opportunity to tour and shop in the new Light Cellar space, where you can also purchase ingredients for the food you will learn about during our evening together.  You will take home your own jar of seasonal chutney and recipes to support your immunity and reinforce the concepts we will learn about.  And, of course…delicious and healthy food and beverage to accompany the stellar company 😉

A Portfolio Life – Interests and Intentions @ TBD
Jan 21 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

We have been exploring the idea of a ‘portfolio life‘ for a couple of years now.  Loosely defined, a portfolio life is one that has many interests/roles that require time and attention – thinking of vocation not as a single career, but rather as a whole body of work.  Wife, mother, professional, musician, volunteer, athlete…all the sums of the whole self.  Not everybody is just one thing.  As Jeff Goins, author of The Art of Work states: “...the search begins with passion, but does not end there.  Only when our interests connect with the needs of the world do we begin living for a larger purpose. Those who experience this intersection experience something exceptional and enviable…such a life is attainable by anyone brave enough to try.”

gro Member Julie Kemp has built Pursuit Advisors, a thriving boutique consulting practice helping people gain a clear understanding of their unique strengths, preferences and abilities and map out personal and professional pathways based on what interests them.  We are thrilled that Julie has agreed to facilitate a gro workshop to support our MEMBERS to articulate their personal interests and use these results to explore the multi-facted aspects of their lives to incorporate more of our interests day-to-day.

Pre-Work:

Each participant will complete an online Strong Interest Inventory by Friday, January 10th.  The Inventory will take approximately 20 minutes – similar to other assessment tools you will be asked a series of questions and asked to respond with the first response that comes to mind….no over-thinking.

Julie will review each assessment for validity and gather an understanding of the group’s results to facilitate our workshop the following week.

Outcomes of the Workshop:

  • provide an opportunity for reflection on one’s specific areas of interest, both from a professional and a personal perspective
  • use the results as a foundation for a broader discussion of:
    • how we are not just ‘one thing’ (i.e. the idea of a “portfolio life”) and how we can explore the multi-faceted aspects of our lives to incorporate more of our interests
    • do the results reflect what brings you joy from a career/volunteer perspective?
    • how to use these results to identify potential changes to increase satisfaction related to your “CRAFT”
    • Our time to pursue our interests is limited – how can we use what we learn here to make better use of our time to achieve greater learning, happiness, satisfaction in life?

Let’s explore our interests and get critical in examining how we are pursuing these interests in our daily lives.  The path to your life’s work is difficult and risky, even scary, which is why few finish the journey.  We have a limited number of summers – so let’s make sure we are spending our time intentionally feeding and nurturing our souls to gro in our interests and the joy that they bring!

Time matters.  Because it ends. 

REGISTER TODAY! 

gro member Julie Kemp has agreed to facilitate this workshop and the Strong Inventory Assessments for gro members at cost.  This is a tremendous value and we thank Julie for this generous offer!

You have the option to order a copy of The Art of Work by Jeff Goins for an additional $16 with your registration.

Due to the time-intensive nature of the analysis of the Strong Inventory Assessments, this CRAFT event will be limited to a 15 participant maximum.  Please contact us at curious@getgroing.ca if you would like to request a companion registration.

Don’t delay!  Registration deadline is January 6th, 2020.
