Making Peace with the Mirror is an interactive, light-hearted workshop designed to provide you with pragmatic tools and tips to help you get in touch with your inner knowing so that you can:

1. change the things in your life that aren't working for you
2. create the life that you desire, and
3. look in the mirror each night with a sense of joy for how you choose to live each day.

Samantha Sargent, shares her common sense approach to everyday life - from the physical to the emotional to the spiritual - the steps she took to radically turn her life around – as a conversation starter for you to get in touch with what’s true for you.

"What amazes me today, is that anxiety, worry and stress are on the rise. As a culture, we’re not coping. And I can relate all too well to this, as I certainly had no idea how to cope. My intention and desire is to invite you to make peace with the person looking back at yourself in the mirror, physically, emotionally and spiritually, so that you can not only cope, but thrive in your daily life."

Our body, mind and spirit are all interconnected. Making a conscious daily practice to nurture a little part of each of these aspects of ourselves can be a profoundly effective way to create the life we desire.


THE BACKGROUND

"When I was 21 years old I tried to kill myself. At that point in time, I thought that the world would be better off without me; and that there was no possible way I could cope or fit in. I was desperately hoping that there was more to life than what I was experiencing but couldn't see how it was possible. My 'round peg' didn't seem to fit in to any of the 'square holes' of the society I was living in. So I swallowed a box of sleeping tablets washed down with a glass of methylated spirits and wrote a letter.

"Making Peace with the Mirror sprung from my desire to reach out to anyone who is finding life a little challenging, or needing a little helping hand to make happy and healthy changes, or looking for inspiration from someone who did a complete 180 degree turn from definitely not wanting to be here to creating a life of their dreams.

"I don’t have the answers for your life. But what I do have, are tools that I was given by others that helped me get through various challenges. The biggest one being, to make peace with the person looking back at me in the mirror.

"Self-judgment was what once crippled me. And sure, I still have my ups and downs, and am far from perfect. I stumble. I trip. And sometimes I fall oh so fabulously flat on my face. But to wake up each morning excited about the day ahead; having a healthy relationship with my body; enjoying a beautiful complexion; being in a kind and nurturing relationship; being able to handle everyday stressors without freaking out; knowing how to provide the perfect environment for my body to heal; and being able to rest my head on the pillow each night ready for a peaceful nights’ sleep, was once a far fetched dream. Today, it is my reality.

"It can be for you too.

"My desire is to provide you with the tools that I learnt over 18 years, so that you can create the changes in your life that you would like to make with greater ease and speed than it took me.”
