Stress management for busy women

Take a break from your busy schedule this women’s day and treat yourself to an outdoors’ day of rejuvenation, relaxation and practical stress management skill building in this picturesque setting close to Magaliesburg. Spoil yourself with a luxurious break in the beauty of nature.

This package also includes one individual coaching session of 1 hour (to be booked at a time convenient to you – online or in person) to follow through with you personally so that there is real and practical progress in your ability to manage your stress.

When we experience stressful circumstances, we often struggle with strong emotions like anger, pain, anxiety and fear. It feels like they are taking over our lives, and we try to avoid dealing with them for as long as possible. However, suppressing them often results in an uncontrolled pressure-cooker effect: the pot boils over or even explodes, often when it is most inconvenient.

There is an alternative. By integrating those strong emotions into our lives, learning what lessons we can from them, and harnessing the motivation and energy they give us, we can implement real change in our circumstances or grow in our ability to deal with them. This journey will feel uncomfortable at times, but the reward of reaching the destination – a more unified, integrated, cohesive personality and way of living – is well worth it.

All that is needed for some stress-free me-time will be provided on this day away: your needs will be catered for with refreshing drinks, treats and a sumptuous (but healthy!) individually-packed picnic lunch. A workbook and a goody bag is included.

Our course content for the day covers:

  • exploring your stressors and the effect they have on you
  • how our emotions can run away with us
  • how our beliefs can keep us from positive change
  • our perceptions of how we use our time, recognising our beliefs about time and a look at some practical ideas for time management
  • an evaluation of our habits, both good and bad, and how we can build on the good and develop healthy habits for self-care of body, mind and soul
  • the inclusion of daily rhythms into our routines as a way of changing us and coping with stress. These will include contemplation, silence, solitude, rest, restoration, renewing of your mind, journaling, contentment and simplicity.
  • most of our time, however, will be spent in applying these different practices and experiencing exercises so that you can make them authentically your own. These will then be more accessible to you in stressful situations.

Package Cost: R1500 (10% discount if you pay by 30 June)

Date for the in-person course: Monday 9 August 2021

Time: 9.00 – 16.00

Book your place with vera@tt-tt.co.za.

More details after registration.

We will adhere to Covid-19 protocols. The venue is covered, but open to the outside. Weather permitting, there should be opportunities for walks and the joy of sitting in the splendour of creation.

We are committed to keeping our environmental footprint as small as possible – no one-use plastic to be found at our course.

Re-imagining Education through Homeschooling

The pandemic has offered us an opportunity to re-define education. What perspectives have we gained from the 2020 experience? How can we best invest our resources to make our children’s schooling more:

  • culturally relevant, as we think about our own current South African circumstances – could home-schooling be the de-colonising alternative?
  • creative, as we encourage them to adapt to change
  • emotionally intelligent, as we foster greater resilience in them
  • efficient, as we steward our own time and theirs

What possibilities can we explore with our children at home to re-imagine and dream about the best education we could provide? Khanyi Mthimunye will be your host and facilitate the interactive sessions. Vera Marbach will share from her 15 year experience of homeschooling three children. Her oldest son is studying actuarial science, the middle son has started his B Comm, her daughter is preparing for Cambridge IGCSE exams later this year.

Join us for a 4 part interactive series about homeschooling every 4 weeks on Saturdays, 14.00 – 15.30, starting on 27 March. We will spend the first 60 minutes on the topics described. The last 30 minutes will be allocated to any questions on homeschooling you bring into the space.

  1. Education re-imagined – 27 March
    1. Your ideal schooling environment
    2. Benefits of homeschooling & avoiding pitfalls
  2. Approaches to home-schooling – 24 April
    1. Choosing a curriculum – how can  we decolonise?
    2. Personality & learning styles
  3. Setting up your home in line with your dream – 22 May
    1. The physical and emotional environment
    2. Looking after yourself
  4. Keeping the dream going – 19 June
    1. Managing it all
    2. Preventing burn-out

You will receive the greatest benefit if you attend all 4 sessions.

Cost per session: R150/$10/€10/£10

Parenting Think Tank

Parenting is a gift and joy that many enjoy. Yet there are moments and seasons where it can be filled with overwhelming feelings, anxiety and frustration. Parents can easily feel alone and isolated in their struggles.

The pandemic has been bitter sweet for many who appreciated more time with their children but felt the pressure of being the ones to meet so many more demands.

Parenting is a beautiful natural calling – we want to embrace it and feel fulfilled. To facilitate this, let’s openly discuss, encourage, support and share ideas with one another. During this Think Tank we will explore what we can constructively do when we feel overwhelmed, discouraged or inadequate in our parenting.

Date: Tuesday 16 March 2021

Time: 19.30 – 21.00 SAST/ 17.30 -19.00 GMT/ 18.30 – 20.00 CEST/12.30 – 14.00 EST

Cost: R150/$10/€10/£10

Places limited to 10. Book yours with vera@tt-tt.co.za

Homeschooling as an alternative…

As parents, we were probably more involved in our children’s education in 2020 than ever before – what perspectives have we gained through that experience? How can we best invest our resources to make our children’s education more relevant? What keeps us in the “same old”?

Is homeschooling a viable alternative?

Join us for an online dialogue: a rich experience that offers an opportunity to explore perspectives unfamiliar to us, to be heard and to continue this journey together with a greater understanding of each other. Diversity Dialogue is an inter-racial dialogue facilitated by Christians using nni methodology. We believe that the Gospel is relevant to all of life.

Parenting with grace

We want to get our relationships right, particularly our family relationships.  We put in our best efforts as parents.  But we may end up tired, discouraged, and feeling like failures.  Why?  A primary cause is when we set out to control & change others, applying subtle pressure, making rules (mostly unwritten) and attempting to modify their attitudes & responses.  The natural result is exhaustion, depression or a sense of wanting to bail out.

One step towards more healthy relationships is to allow grace to replace manipulation & legislation.  Join Vera Marbach as she describes the difference between grace-filled relationships and curse-filled relationships, where “curse” is an acronym for … – you’ll need to attend the online talk to find out.

There will be opportunity for discussion and interaction.

Becoming the victim of a mother’s optimism

Most of the time, I would call myself an optimist. I can’t seem to help myself – I see potential in other people, including my children. I believe in their ability to bounce back when faced with challenges, to find those inner resources to get up and try again, even when it is tough.

But sometimes, I voice this belief too quickly. They do not feel heard and argue the case for their perceived “victimhood”. In my efforts to encourage them to rediscover their agency and act positively in their circumstances, I may inadvertently contribute to the opposite. They feel they are also victims of my deaf ears.
