The Not So Big Life

photo sarah susankaHave you ever wondered if there’s more to life than meets the eye, or suspected that you’re missing a big part of it? Ever felt like a human “doing” rather than a human “being?” Sarah Susanka, best-selling author of The Not So Big Life, offers guidance in this weekend workshop to help you identify what’s in the way of living your full potential – right here, right now.

In this workshop, you’ll discover how to inhabit your life completely by listening to what your heart already knows. The end result is greater meaning, vitality, and a sense of being at home in your life, focused not on what you do, but instead on how you are in everything you do. Explore techniques for remodeling your life, transforming it into something you love, without having to change your outer circumstances at all. Through collective inquiry and simple exercises, you’ll learn to:

  • Find time in a too busy life.
  • Understand how you’ve created the idea of “you.”
  • See through habitual patterns, and emotional reactions that no longer serve you.
  • Experience everything that happens as a reflection to help you see yourself more clearly.
  • Relax into life as a human “being” instead of a human “doing.”

Recommended reading: Sarah Susanka, The Not So Big Life: Making Room for What Really Matters (Random House). There is also an abridged audio book, read by Sarah, that is an excellent supplement to the book.

Those who have participated in one of Sarah's Not So Big Life workshops previously are invited to Implementing the Not So Big Life, a 6-month intensive to explore more deeply your own not so big life.

What Participants have Said:

“I read the book but it is so much better to have Sarah here to explain it in person..."

“I enjoyed learning from the other [participants] and gained a lot from the diversity of life experiences.”

“The entire experience was just beautiful.  I loved the open forum feeling- the ability to discuss and ask so many questions."
