In SPICE4LIFE’s latest collaboration with Healing Earth’s Lara Potgieter, she talks about the Heal Your Life workshops that the Healing Earth Foundation offers as a part of the Well Miss approach to holistic health.
In our second episode, Lara talks about Louise Hay’s “Heal Your Life” approach to self-actualisation and self love.
Over the course of the series, Lara will also present podcasts on children’s yoga, Nia Technique Dance Classes, Emotional Freedom Techniques, and other elements of holistic wellness.
The Heal Your Life approach to wellness was initially practised by Louise Hay, an American motivational author. The tenets are based on her second book “You Can Heal Your Life,” written in 1984. The book has sold over 40 million copies in over 30 languages.
“Louise Hay maintains that at the heart of the hardship we experience in life is a lack of self-love,” Lara, who is a trained Heal Your Life teacher, said.
Lara is currently the Foundation Director at Healing Earth, working for the charitable wing of the African beauty and wellness manufacturer to help nurture and develop children and young adults. She’s also the owner of Well Miss, a mobile company that offers classes, treatments, consultations, and workshops that aim to connect practitioners’ minds, bodies, and spirits.
To promote self-love, the Heal Your Life approach encourages guided journal work, positive affirmations, mirror work, and detailed meditations and visualisations.
The Healing Earth Foundation offers weekly Heal Your Life Workshops at the SA Children’s Home in Cape Town, the iHata Shelter for Abused Women & Children in Heideveld, and St. George’s Home for Girls in Wynberg.
In the podcast, Lara explains the foundational tenets of the Heal Your Life approach and answers some questions about how the workshop can help people change their lives.
