The Habit of Celebration
See your life, and the world around you, in ways that fill you with joy, gratitude and energy.
Are you tired of feeling discouraged by the negativity in the world?
Would you like to more easily see the good things in your life?
It's easy to see what there is to celebrate when things are going well, but how can we hold onto that perspective no matter how things are going?
The challenges we face in our personal lives, at work, in our relationships, and even in the world events in the daily news, can leave us feeling anxious, fearful and discouraged. If we allow the things that are wrong with our world to dominate our thinking it can spill out into every part of our lives, including our health.
Developing a habit of celebration doesn't require massive change, but rather a subtle shift in how we're seeing our lives and the world around us.
The Habit of Celebration is an 18-module e-course filled with thought-provoking stories, insights and daily practices to help you successfully strengthen your ability to see more of what's right in YOUR world.
It isn't about ignoring what's not going well in our lives, or the very real pain and suffering that exists on the planet. But by choosing to celebrate what's right with our world, and making the practice of celebration a habit, we’re able to see those problems in a larger more balanced context; a context that allows us to see that there’s far more right with the world than there is wrong with it.
In this course you'll...
- Learn ways to shift how you see the world to improve your life.
- Develop ways of seeing that can help you turn past or present obstacles into opportunities.
- Discover practical exercises for how to see your life through a lens of celebration.
- Feel inspired by finding what's right in YOUR world.

"It's been an enlightening experience and I'm even more in love with the 'Celebrate' message since completing this course! I practice it throughout the day in all aspects of my life; some large, some small. Each segment is an important part of the message on a whole. It is a delight to listen to and challenge yourself with the actions of the day. I could spend a few weeks on each segment!"

"If I could sum it up in one word, you might be surprised that I would say 'gentle'. It is such a gentle approach to some potentially life changing, soul-searching challenges. If you think on these things, and are willing to shift your thinking, it will really take a person out of themselves...out of a self-centred approach to life, to see and enjoy people and love unconditionally! The module called 'Change' was a great one for me and helped clarify what I think I already knew but needed the reflection!"
