We’ve all been to events, talks, conferences, retreats that we were anticipating for weeks… and then when it came to the big day? We felt a tad… overwhelmed.
We’d love you to have the best possible time over the Wildfire Women weekend, so we have a few tips to make the most of it:
Set an intention
Setting an intention is a surefire way to create the best experience you can have at an event like this. Taking the time in advance to ask yourself why you are attending and what you wish to achieve brings focus and clarity.
At the same time, allowing ourselves to be flexible and spontaneous creates a pathway for unexpected magic. Feel free to share your intentions for the weekend on our Wildfire Women Facebook group.
Leave FOMO at the door
Oh yes – Fear Of Missing Out. For most of us, to be in multiple places at once would be one hell of a superpower. Unfortunately at Wildfire Women there will be many decisions to make in choosing where to spend our time.
Whether it’s choosing one talk over another, or opting to take a break, just remember that you are exactly where you should be. Listen to your body, your mind, your spirit, and honour it’s decision.
Remember we’re all equals
Whether it’s listening to these amazing speakers and performers on stage, or chatting to someone incredible in the seat next to you – it’s easy to fall into the comparison trap.
We start to compare our failures to their successes and from this arises feelings of scarcity and competition. The fact is: there is plenty of the pie to go around. The only person you can compare yourself to is who YOU were yesterday.
Appreciate the little things
Yes, there are the obvious moments (and we can tell you there will be some big ones!) to look out for at Wildfire Women – but it’s important to pay attention to the small moments too. The moments of intimacy; a short but deep chat with someone in the loo or the briefest hug – these are the moments that will stay with you, and are worth appreciating.
Above all else, Wildfire Women is about connection. The key to the door of authentic connection is the willingness to be vulnerable. When we connect at this level, the growth and transformation we seek is ours: both individually and as a group.
In our fast-paced lives, dictated by electronic devices and ad campaigns, it’s easy to feel alone and disconnected. Give yourself the gift of true connection this weekend.
