Is the fire for the cause consuming you, and in danger of burning you up or burning you out?

‘How can I sustain this level of care and commitment to an un-winnable battle, that must not be lost?’

You want to be in it for the long haul, but the cause is costing you dearly and creating conflicts with friends, family and your other commitments and obligations. Opposition can be truly exhausting.

The cause matters more than anything, but if you don’t look after yourself and find ways to nourish, replenish, balance and sustain your energy, you will not be much good for anything , let alone the cause. Activism has a very high burn-out rate.

I understand that your passion is a fire that lights you up with care, concern, conviction, commitment and exhilaration, but fire is consuming by nature. Together we can look at the other elements of your being, to see what we can learn, in order to find new sources of energy and strategies for a wiser, more integrated, balanced and sustainable approach to what really matters.

The element of water is about feelings, the emotions that flow alongside the struggle, here we find acceptance of how things really are, acceptance tends to be a struggle for principled idealists. Air is about sense making, finding inspiration, new meaning and re-framing our roles. Earth is about the body,  material resources and physical resilience,  networks, community, livelihood and income. Spirit is about connecting with all that we are – and resourcing ourselves in the unbroken, so that we we can continue the struggle with that which is broken or breaking our hearts.

Imagine finding fresh new resources for a more rounded, less costly and more sustainable strategy, which integrates, nurtures and replenishes your whole being.

I offer five sessions to activists who are burning up, or burning out. Email me to have a chat and find out how I might support you. This is my gift to support activists – lack of money will not prevent us working together if we are a good match.
