How long are the sessions?
Is this about implementing a minimalist lifestyle?
Some clients might be called to integrate some minimalist practices, but the work I do is not specifically about implementing a minimalist lifestyle. Many of us do want diverse ways of using our time, and many of us simply have several unavoidable commitments at this time in life. But, there are always ways to regain a good level of simplicity, focus and ease into daily life.
Do I need to decide ahead of time what I am going to work on?
No, you don't. You can bring some specific topics if you know what they are, but we can also decipher together what the best approach and process would be for you at this time.
What does an intentional lifestyle mean?
The term intentional lifestyle has been used in many different contexts from alternative community projects to to schools of meditation, but for the purpose of my work with clients, an intentional lifestyle refers to a way of living that includes space and time for one's heartfelt, genuine endeavors, presence and contentment. It is about turning down the auto-pilot of rushing from one commitment to another and making sure that one is living according to our values and aspirations.
It does include questioning some of the social norms that impinge upon our possibilities for living mindfully, getting to know what our genuine wishes for our time in this world are, and being willing to engage in a gradual process of rearranging habits so that authenticity and intentionality can manifest more naturally in our routines.
How many sessions are recommended and at what intervals?
This depends on your intention.
Some people just like to have a session to deal with a specific situation, while others want to have one hour of deep rest.
For establishing habits for a lifestyle that includes ease, focus and simplicity, a series of at least 6 meetings is recommended.
Ideally we would have about 10 to 15 sessions working together.
The reason for this is rather simple: There are several theories about how long it takes to form a habit. The most popular is Dr. Maltz's 21/90 (do something for 21 days and it becomes a habit, and do it daily for 90 days and it becomes a lifestyle). A recent study from the University of London established 66 days as the average time it takes to form a habit. 10 to 15 sessions roughly covers those timelines.
Sessions can take place weekly or bi-weekly in order to have continuity and momentum to the process.
