Do you sometimes feel like it's all getting to be too much?

Are you tired of trying to meet the expectations of all the 'you should do'?

Making Peace with the Mirror
is a half-day interactive and light-hearted workshop designed to provide you with pragmatic tools and tips to change the things in your life that aren't working for you. An invitation to de-clutter. Be genki founder (and Be Naturallyou founder), Sam Sargent, shares her common sense approach to everyday life - from the physical to the emotional to the spiritual. As well as take-home tips that you can start integrating in to your life immediately for a life free-from "shoulds" and ever-growing stress from unmet expectations.

"What amazes me today, is that anxiety, worry and stress are on the rise. As a culture, we’re not coping. And I can relate all too well to this, as I certainly had no idea how to cope. My desire is to show people how I learnt not only to cope, but to thrive in this crazy thing called ‘life’." - Sam Sargent, founder of Be genki

  • You will leave the workshop with your very own practical steps on how to calm the chaos and curb the crazy in your own life.
  • You will receive a beautiful booklet containing inspiration, information, tools, tips and easy-to-follow recipes for you to refer back to following the workshop.
  • You will learn how best to bring about a clean and clear complexion.
  • You will be gifted a box of products (skin care, body care and essential oils) plus a voucher for you to redeem on your next purchase at Be genki.
  • You will have the possibility to ask anything you desire in a judgement-free space.
  • You have the choice to listen, or ask questions. This is not a 'you must step our of your comfort zone' kind of workshop. It's your choice to be as you wish.

“When I was 21 years old I tried to kill myself. At that point in time, I thought that the world would be better off without me; and that there was no possible way I could cope or fit in. I was desperately hoping that there was more to life than what I was experiencing but couldn't see how it was possible. My 'round peg' didn't seem to fit in to any of the 'square holes' of the society I was living in. So I swallowed a box of sleeping tablets washed down with a glass of methylated spirits and wrote a letter.

"Making Peace with the Mirror sprung from my desire to reach out to anyone who is finding life a little challenging, or needing a little helping hand to make happy and healthy changes, or looking for inspiration from someone who did a complete 180 degree turn from definitely not wanting to be here to creating a life of their dreams.

"I don’t have the answers for your life. But what I do have, are tools that I was given by others that helped me get through various challenges. The biggest one being, to make peace with the person looking back at me in the mirror.

"Self-judgment was what once crippled me. And sure, I still have my ups and downs, and am far from perfect. I stumble. I trip. And sometimes I fall oh so fabulously flat on my face. But to wake up each morning excited about the day ahead; having a healthy relationship with my body; enjoying a beautiful complexion; being in a kind and nurturing relationship; being able to handle everyday stressors without freaking out; and being able to rest my head on the pillow each night ready for a peaceful nights’ sleep, was once a far fetched dream. Today, it is my reality.

"It can be for you too.

"My desire is to provide you with the tools that I learnt over 18 years, so that you can create the changes in your life that you would like to make with greater ease and speed than it took me.”
