Live Your Passion Workshop in Ubud

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Rice field

Back in 2011, Ubud was the last stop of our 6-month journey across Southeast Asia. While there, I had a vision of bringing together passionate people from all over the world to share ideas and strategies on how we can all live authentic lives and get closer to our ultimate purpose.

3 years later, I'm finally making that vision a reality. I've found an accomplice in Purposeful Career Coach Lydia of Screw The Cubicle. Together, we are hosting the Live Your Passion Workshop in Ubud, Bali. It's a two-day event that teaches you how to discern and focus on your why, fuse your passions, and design a road map to jumpstart your ideal lifestyle. This workshop will not just inspire you to make a living doing what you love, it will equip you with the essential tools to start moving closer to your ultimate purpose.


Day One is focused on Breathwork™ and fun activities that allow you to go back to a childlike state. You will look into yourself to define your authentic core values and find out what matters most to you. Finally, you will learn to find that sweet spot between the things you love doing, your unique gifts, and what value you can give to the world that people will gladly pay for.

Day Two starts with understanding how your inventory of talents and skills relate to your purpose and passion. Learn strategies to transition properly from the safety net of a 9-5 job to a business or lifestyle of freedom, without landing on your face. You’ll be able to find out how to start a virtual and mobile business idea to give you freedom to explore. There will be small group mastermind sessions and you will be able to have a roadmap strategy plan of what actionable steps to do next.

“Lydia really gave it to me straight on the truth about living abroad and worked with me to be able to travel, be inspired…”

Coaching with Lydia has helped me recognize who I really was, and not be afraid to admit what I really secretly wanted to do with my life. I was too caught up for years just doing the type of work I received a degree on. I just couldn’t see that it was possible to even go after what I really wanted to do, let alone travel while doing it. I am so glad I chose to work with Lydia, she really gave it to me straight on the truth about living abroad and worked with me to be able to travel, be inspired, and do all that while working on my small business idea. What a change, but definitely exciting!

“I no longer have any excuses to keep playing it small!”
Lydia strikes the right balance of compassion and non-nonsense ‘reality-check’ advice that has gently supported me in taking back my own power in my life. She has guided me to look more honestly at myself and how I react to challenging situations that crop up in my life, helping me to identify the lessons that are blocking me from moving forward and creating my dream life. Lydia’s coaching came along at the right time when I was ready to go beyond ‘sugar-coated’ support and suggestions from friends and step up into taking full responsibility for what I was experiencing in my life. She is committed to helping me know my own value and her coaching facilitates me in a step-by-step process of moving into a new line of work that expresses my full potential and gifts. I no longer have any excuses to keep playing it small!

"But it is possible to take your life and move it to places you’ve never imagined you could reach."

So I went out and made a list of 25 things to do before I turn 25, and in my pursuit of things on that list, I somehow ended up on a beach surfing, doing yoga, and eventually discovering shared passions with complete strangers. Equipped with an extra dose of passion and some much needed planning and goal-setting from Lois, I left the weekend recognizing that it may not be possible to be doctor/lawyer/actress/teacher/librarian/princess(!) anymore. But it is possible to take your life and move it to places you’ve never imagined you could reach.

"But in less than an hour, with the guidance of Lois, I had consciously drawn everything in my brain and how they all intertwined."

I have always considered myself a jack of all trades. Growing up, I wanted to be an astronaut, then a nun, a CEO, a lawyer, a chef, a photographer, a make-up artist. Burnt out, I quit my glamorous Marketing & PR Director position in 2008 not knowing what my next step was. I was confused and just overwhelmed by the things I wanted to accomplish. But in less than an hour, with the guidance of Lois, I had consciously drawn everything in my brain and how they all intertwined. I found out that my top 3 passions were yoga, surfing and traveling. And discovered that my other interests like food and love (family, friends, people) actually supported my passions. Because of this, I was able to redirect my energy and focus on them.
