All aboard for FLYING SOUP 3 – Thurs 27th Feb.


I’m looking forward to welcoming you all aboard again for
FLYING SOUP 3, this Thursday 27th March, 7 – 9pm

Session 3 – CHECK IN
In this session we battle through some turbulence – as we look back over sessions 1 and 2 and think:
‘That’s all very well but …’
We will examine our dreams and ideas and why it is maybe completely and utterly impossible,
RIDICULOUS even for us to actually really consider doing anything about them  – EVER!
The plane will probably nosedive, oxygen masks will almost certainly drop from above our heads, however we are in the safe hands of an experienced Pilot, there are efficient Stewardesses on board to keep the atmosphere calm (and administer warmth, humour and Gin as required)

We will certainly make it through the clouds and emerge safely into clear blue skies, ready for adventure, not a drop of soup spilt!

Can’t wait!

(This course of FLYING SOUP is now FULL.
If you didn’t make it on board this one, please get in touch via the FLYING SOUP HOW TO BOOK PAGE to be added to the waiting list for future flights x)

Here are some notes from Session 1:

FLYING SOUP FEB 2014 SESSION 1 Catch-up notes.
The Flying Club is about reconnecting us with our joy and creativity.

It is a gentle process that reminds and kindly provokes us to be our best selves, to get out of our own way, be VERY nice to ourselves and begin to value and honour our ideas, hopes and dreams.

Session 1 was about checking our navigations systems and having a think about about where we might want to go.

The following exercises are best done FAST to avoid the temptation to over-think them. There are no right or wrong answers, often the seemingly small or silly answers hold potency and insights.

Starting with the words ‘It matters to me that ….’, write a list 20 things that matter to you.
From your personal ethics to sock-drawer management, don’t edit anything out. They can be things you already have or do, as well as items, qualities, feeling that you’d like more of.
(NB. In ALL Flying Club exercises we take it as given that other people and the rest of the world are all alright  – we want to hear about YOU).

b. Write another list of 20 ‘It matters to me that ….’s

c. Write 20 x ‘It doesn’t matter to me AT ALL that ….’s

Now look at the ‘It doesn’t matter’ list and check for worthiness , for example I could have written:
‘It doesn’t matter to me at all that I don’t have a guitar-shaped swimming pool’.
If, when I read it back I feel that actually it really does matter and I won’t feel complete + successful until I do own one – I’ll move that item up into the ‘it matters’ list!

Then double check the ‘It matters’ lists too for worthiness, ‘shoulds’ and ‘oughts’ and move any offenders down to ‘It doesn’t matter’ list or edit them out.

Everything you write in the Flying Soup sessions is confidential and you won’t be asked to share anything you don’t want to.

d. Choose 3 from each list that jump out for you and highlight them. Notice any that have have a special resonance.

e. Write:
Write it big + beautiful.

These lists are non-negotiable navigational tools. They matter to you. You chose them. Believe yourself and honour them.

2. Brochure Photo.
Take an imaginary snap-shot of yourself in the future feeling fantastic, relaxed and contented. Everything has worked out spectacularly well …

a. Describe the physical place (you don’t have to know where it is and you don’t have to worry about the practicalities of you being there!)
… write what it smells like, tastes like, what colour, feel, sounds, look, weather breeze … as much minute detail as possible.

b. Describe yourself in this photo, how you feel, look, sound, smell …

Enjoy yourself!
Please bring your notes to FLYING SOUP on Thursday 27th Feb, 7 – 9pm.

See your creative life take-off in 2014 with monthly COACHING SESSIONS from The Flying Club

Insightful and inspirational coaching exercises, + soup!
Monthly at Bom-Bane’s, George Street, Kemp Town, Brighton BN2 1RH.
£10 – includes delicious soup with chewy brown bread

A course of 6 monthly coaching sessions from The Flying Club,
designed to get your creative ideas off the ground

STARTS: Thursday 30th Jan 2014. 7-9pm (then MONTHLY)

Flying Soup will be perfect for you if:

  • Your old life doesn’t quite fit anymore and you’d like to explore what to do next …
  • There’s something you’ve always fancied trying but haven’t got round to … yet!
  • You have a creative project in mind and would like some support getting it off the ground
  • You’d like to explore whether a more creative life might work for you
  • You are a creative person who would like to bring more clarity and focus to your practice

The Flying Club Creative Coaching is a gentle and VERY effective process, using a series of specially devised coaching tools and exercises – from Navigation, Baggage Control and Checking the Runway to In-Flight Meals and Passport Control –  to empower you to identify and act upon the wealth of possibilities available to you.

There’ll be no ‘running off with the circus‘ – (unless you want too of course!) but lots of tiny comfortable steps which sneakily conspire to massive changes in your life.

I strongly advise that you attend all six sessions, unlike previous Flying Soup sessions these are designed to work as a course for maximum effect.

If you prefer a more personal approach, contact me to discuss ONE-TO-ONE Flying Club Sessions.

Looking forward to seeing you on the runway!
