Discover Your True Self Workbook

A New Year Intention Setting Yoga, Meditation & Journaling Workshop

Many people like to set themselves New Year’s resolutions in January – you might not call it a resolution, you might call it a goal or intention.

Whether you have already set your New Year’s resolution or goals, are in the process of setting them or are struggling to find the best way to set them, this workshop is designed for you!

Before you begin this workshop, I recommend downloading a Discover Your True-Self Workbook and take the Dosha quiz and complete The Pathway of Your Life.

We begin with a soundwork – chanting Genesha Mantra and then Gayatri Kriya – a Yoga sequence for balancing all Doshas, Ayurvedic Mind-Body Type..

We’ll then end with a short guided meditation which is designed to help you set an overarching intention for 2024.

Make sure you have a pen and journal with you as we’ll go through a journaling exercise after a short meditation!

Mantra used in this workshop:

Ganesha Mantra – Remover of obstacles

“Om Gum Ganapataye Namaha”

Mudra used in this workshop:

Jnana Mudra – the core quality is awakening clear seeing

Jnana means “wisdom” and Jnana mudra directs our awareness to the third eye, our center of spiritual clarity and one-pointed concentration, deepening our ability to witness consciously.

Journaling Prompts:

Write down all the qualities you saw in the visualisation.

Write down all the feelings and emotions you experienced.

Write down your overarching intention for 2024 (Your intention should be short, concise, in present tense as it has already happened!).

4 Goals of Life:

In Vedic philosophy, which is thought to have originated over 5,000 years ago, describes 4 aims of life – and suggests that it’s important to balance against another.

1) Dharma – Duties & Life Purpose:

  • Your health
  • Your family, parents, siblings and your husband, partner and children
  • Life purpose – your souls work

2) Artha:
Income & Prosperity

3) Kama: Pleasure and fun

4) Moksha: Spiritual freedom

Journaling Prompts:

Spend some time to have a think about which area of these 4 aims that you feel balanced and out of balance.

Which of these areas can you improve to help you be in alignment of your overarching intention?
