Didcot, Oxfordshire UK
Tell us about yourself:
My name is Caroline (nickname Cece) and I am the proud mama of Ruben (6) and Honey (5). We live in Didcot, Oxfordshire in the UK and I am excited to be a new RTA-Certified Facilitator. I set up my company Cece Chance – Personal Renewal in the New Year and I am now running weekly groups in my local area.
Why did you become a RTA-Certified Facilitator?
Having battled through the early years of parenting and constantly feeling exhausted, lonely, unloved and left behind, I realized I needed to make big changes. I discovered Renee through my newfound love of yoga and started implementing the suggestions she offered in her book “The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal: How to Reclaim, Rejuvenate and Re-Balance Your Life”. Each day I started to feel my own identity seeping back into my soul and body and wished I could share with other women, the positive experience I was having. One day i was telling my yoga teacher all about it and she said, “Why not follow your wishes and become a Facilitator?” It suddenly hit me that this is truly my dream and my only limitations were my fears. I faced that fear and here I am!
How has the Personal Renewal Group Program work changed or affected you?
Working with other like-minded women feeds me on many levels. I love how Renee’s program is for the benefit of the Facilitator’s growth as much as for the women in the group. I feel grounded and content after each session and take great comfort from knowing my group provides me with that ‘soft place to fall’ when I have tough days. The groups create a sense of family and I feel like I actually belong somewhere in the world instead of feeling lost and on my own. This is the best thing I ever did for myself personally and professionally.
What are your favorite self-care activities?
This is hard to answer as this is constantly evolving and changing based on my current needs, but these are my go-to activities that always bring me joy and contentment:
Physical: – Sleep and lots of it, aromatherapy and baths, a good gym workout listening to my favorite tunes and of course yoga!
Emotional – Journaling, annual girl’s weekend and sitting cozy on the sofa listening to and embracing the wise words of speakers such as David Sye, Marianne Williamson, Ashley Turner and of course, Renee!
Spiritual – Meditation and coloring in (especially mandalas!)
Mental – Constantly signing up for new classes and workshops in as many holistic teachings as possible; I have just finished one learning all about the Chakra system – fascinating!
