Conscious Courage

A workshop with Gillie Sutherland on August 8th 2021




You have the power within you to withstand even the toughest of challenges.

What holds us back is fear, what gives us strength is courage.

Courage is resistance to fear, it is the mastery of fear, not the absence of fear.

All of us have some degree of fear in us, and fear can have a devastating effect on our health, as it impacts our mental state, our physiological state and our neurobiological state.

By building strength and resilence, by conquering our fears, we keep ourselves strong, healthy and happy, and this is the best way we can keep our immune systems functioning well.

These are factors within our control, in a world where it seems there is much that is beyond our control, and THIS is the secret to our freedom.

In this interactive and experiential workshop, I will share with you the secrets to overcoming your fears, and becoming COURAGEOUS.

*** The session will include some movement, although this is self-guided and requires no experience.

I’ve chosen Lionsgate, one of the most powerful days of the year, so you can harness the potent power of The Sun in Leo, the rising of Sirius, and the magical numberlogy of 8/8. Read more about Lionsgate and Conscious Courage below.

I’ve drawn upon my lifelong studies of yoga, mindfulness, psychology, philosophy, NLP, energy work, Somatic Experiencing, and the work of great such as Wim Hof, Nikola Tesla, Brene Brown, Gabor Mate, Nietzsche, Mark Walsh, Peter Levine and David Berceli, however, the true content is my first-hand experience in overcoming trauma and how I moved from a state of fear to freedom to be where I am today.

As a Trainer and Coach, I will help you unlock the secrets to finding your own courage, so you can become the person you came here to be.

The session will incorporate my 7 Wonders :

  • Movement
  • Mindfulness
  • Meditation
  • Music
  • Mantra
  • Motivation
  • Magic! (The secret ingredient!)

Date: Sunday 8th August 2021

Time: 8am – 11am UK time, 0900-1200hr CET

Where: Live on Zoom or in Person at Elixir Vitae Studio in Zupa

What you will learn:

  • What it really means to be courageous
  • What it takes to be courageous
  • What stops us being courageous
  • How can we EMBODY courage in our daily practise
  • How we can take this practise out into the world and BE courageous

By the end of the session you will have new tools and rituals to help you bring more courage into your life, for building strength and resilience, and becoming a Warrior of Light!

So What Is Conscious Courage?

Conscious Courage comes from developing a sense of mindful awareness as to what holds us back, and making a choice to change and grow.

It is an empowered and embodied state of being that we train in ourselves, just like we would train a muscle or a new skill.

We are making the decision to take back control over our reactions, our health, and our lives, so that we can better withstand external forces which can stress and fear.

Instead of reacting to the circumstances that we are placed in, we take back the control of our own lives, and we focus on those things that we can influence – like keeping ourselves strong, healthy and happy.

Conscious Courage is awareness of the need for LOVE to overcome fear, that love strengthens us, and fear weakens us, and that to be courageous means to lead from the heart.

The world needs those with courage right now more than ever, we need to stay strong to stay in the light, and overcome the dark. The world needs Warriors of Light, those courageous souls that will lead the way and make it safe for others to follow.

If this resonates with you, then BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW, and let’s do this together!



About Me:

Many of you may know me simply as a Yoga Teacher, however, my career in health and wellbeing has spanned over 30 years, and included the study of psychology, philosophy, and what makes us tick, as well as the more spiritual and energetic side of things.

As well as being a Yoga Teacher, I am a Qualified Trainer and Assessor, Life Coach, NLP Practitioner, Meditation Teacher, and I have a BA (Hons) in Physical Education. I have studied both from a modern scientific approach, but also ancient practises such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine, in both the classroom and in my travels to faraway places.

My greatest gift for my teaching, however, is my life experiences. My most powerful learning came from what I went through and overcame myself, specifically, multiple traumas causing severe physical and psychological injury.

Just before the pandemic hit, I overcame one of my greatest fears, and I travelled from the UK to Croatia with my great love (my cat) to find my freedom.

I continue to challenge myself to be courageous, using the tools I learned on my journey, and I am inspired to share these to help others find their strength and power to not just survive, but thrive, through these challenging times.

I believe LOVE is the answer.

It is the antidote to fear, and LOVE WILL HEAL US.

About Lionsgate:

The 8/8 Lionsgate Portal happens every year on 8th August and is said the be one of the most potently powerful and auspicious days of the year.

It has been a date that has been recognised and honoured through the ages, from the Ancient Egyptians, the Mayans, Sumerians, Babylonians, and the Dogon tribe, and all the great astrologers of our time place great importance on this date, in particular the Sirius, also known as our Spiritual Sun.

It is activated by:

  • The numerology of 8/8
  • The Sun in Leo season
  • The rising of the star Sirius

This immensely powerful combination opens a galactic portal which allows high vibrational energy to be sent to the Earth, which we can all tune in and connect to.

This year will be more powerful than any other year, it lands right in the middle of two Full Moon in Aquarius, and as we shift from the old paradigm, the 3d consciousness, to the new Earth and the 5d consciousness.

Don’t worry if that doesn’t make a lot of sense just yet. Simply the Earth is shifting, we are right in the middle of this shift, which is why it is more important than ever to stay strong!
