Clarity Begins at Home 2023

New Year, New You!

What will you achieve in 2023? Will this be the year that your resolution to “get organized” gets real? Will you clear a path toward your purpose? Join Barbara Reich and me in the return of our (super-popular!)  Clarity Begins at Home workshop on Tuesdays from January 31 through February 28, 11 to 12:30 pm EST. If the timing doesn’t work for you, sessions will be recorded and we will welcome your questions and feedback after hours.

Building on the powerful connection between home, self, and wellness, we’ll work with you to remove the clutter in your home and your life to create a personal environment that is conducive to productivity, purpose, and peace of mind.

In Session 1, we will show you tools you can use to tune into your own intuition and to what your living space might be “saying” to you, Participants will be given (fun!) exercises and a bit of homework to do  to begin their process. Those who wish are also invited to submit  images of areas they’d like help with. Session 2 focuses on the bedroom and bath. Session 3, the kitchen. Session 4,  personal workspaces and wherever else might be a problem spot for you. And finally, Session 5 will summarize and offer specific tips and clear  next steps to maintain your progress.

You don’t need me to tell you that the pandemic left even the most well-adjusted among us weary and wondering if we were living/working/being in the world as we best could. We hadn’t spent so much time at home since… ever. As a result, consciously or not, many of us felt a connection between home, self, and our sense of well-being. Many of us cleared clutter and re-invented spaces better to support our lives, and wow, we felt happier! We felt calmer, more focused, and boom, we were on to something powerful: Tapping into the connection between our living space and our life can be life-changing.

My brilliant co-teacher is Barbara Reich, New York University MBA, world class organizer, and founder of Life Organized. Barbara and I began working  together ten years ago in New York and have long discussed the idea of the home as an underpinning of emotional well-being (what my book The Bee Cottage Story is all about!). Now Barbara and I combine our wisdom and expertise to guide you to create the home and life that are purposeful and fulfilling for you.

 What are you weary of? What do you long for? How will you navigate your life in 2023 and beyond? If these are questions you’d like to explore in a fun and fascinating adventure, join Barbara and me in this transformative, five-session virtual workshop, Clarity Begins at Home. You’ll gain personal insight along with solid practical advice and individual, personal coaching for real life solutions and tools you can use forever.

You can do it! And no, you do not have to be a minimalist. Heaven knows I am anything but.

But you can go from this…

  1. I took this workshop previously and it worked wonders for me. I got focused and moved forward in an orderly, organized and fun progression. I still have too many books though. Frances makes the whole process enjoyable, rather than scary.

    1. Thank you Cara! It is good to hear from you and I’m so glad to know you have stayed on track.BRAVA! And btw, I have too many books, too! We’re not going for perfection here, just a meaningful way forward with clarity and purpose 😉

    1. Hi Maureen, and thanks for asking! You can go to the workshop sign-up page and be put on the list to receive the recordings if you choose to sign up. Session #3 is Tuesday the 14th, and we can send you #s 1 and 2 to catch you up 🙂 F
