Sara Phillips is a mindfulness practitioner who has just finished studying the Power of Awareness course with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach. She is also a NLP practitioner, a parent and life coach and an experienced workshop facilitator who has taught mindfulness to parents, children, teenagers and schools.
Sara’s experiences as a mother, coach and family support worker have shown her that women who nurture themselves are able to find creative solutions to the challenge of balancing our many roles with personal fulfilment.
Her intention is to create a community of women who support each other to live mindfully and abundantly.

TESTIMONIALS from our January 2017 Circle:
'Thanks Sara I have missed your mindfulness classes, I am so glad to be here'
'I'm so honoured to be part of a group of such wise & intuitive women. I'm really looking forward to learning from you all & this journey we will be taking together.'
This series of monthly gatherings will help you to:
tune into your inner heart wisdom,
set a direction in your life,
cultivate those qualities and values you would like more of in your life
be in a supportive community of women with mindfulness, deep nurturing, creativity & spirit.
Each month we will meet in a circle of women to:
centre ourselves in mindfulness and reflect on what is most alive for us right now
celebrate what we have enjoyed & what we are grateful for that month
share what we are ready to let go or no longer have in our life
tune into our inner compass from deep within our heart and set our deep inner intentions (read more here)
create a mandala that reflects our intentions for the next month
learn different mandala techniques
A Life Pie Mandala I made last year while completing The Artist Way with Julia Cameron- just one of the mandala exercises we will do.
Sara will integrate all of her experience as a life coach, NLP practitioner, mindfulness practitioner and creative spirit to facilitate this transformative group. You can read more about her intentions for the group in her blog : https://littlemindfulmoments.wordpress.com
Mindfulness:helps to centre you & allows space for you to hear your own inner heart wisdom and practice some of those life qualities you may want to cultivate more of in your life : loving kindness, forgiveness, self-compassion
Mandalas: using your right brain and being creative allows you to access and program your subconscious and create a visual reminder of your deep intentions. Being creative with mandalas is also a very mindful and calming activity. No prior experience necessary.
Mapping Intentions:'Plant the seeds of deep intention and little by little things change.' Jack Kornfield. Reflective coaching questions will help you to identify what really matters to you and empower you to set realistic intentions to create more of what is important in your life. Sharing your intentions in a supportive group monthly will help to inspire you and I love the accountability of reporting in to a group.

‘I walked away from the session feeling refreshed, clear-minded, and with a few clear goals tucked under my wing, I felt ready to take on the world (or at least my world). I also left with an armful of practical tips to get through each day in a calm and centered way (without having to sit on my meditation cushion for an hour a day)… Perfect for a busy Mumma like me.’ – Jodie F., 2016
“I had the pleasure of attending one of Sara’s Mindfulness Mini-Retreats in April. It was a lovely mix of mindful activities, meditation and time for self-reflection and self-care. Sara’s gentle and natural approach puts you immediately at ease, and she provides practical ways in which you can incorporate mindfulness into your everyday life. She helps you to realise that taking time for self-care actually benefits not just you, but also those around you. The Mini-Retreat is a beautiful gift to give yourself as it is the gift that keeps on giving”. Trisha Mitchell 2016
