    057: Why Do You Need Retreat Days?

    057: Why Do You Need Retreat Days?

    Culture teaches us to push, push, push! While productivity and work are important parts of our whole REALIFE, if we don't learn to come away for a while we end up living a very reactionary life with our hair on fire! 
    Author Dallas Willard says, "If you don't come apart for a while, you will come apart after a while."
    While each Enneagram type approaches retreat differently, and we'll talk about that more on next week's episode, for each type there is Full Circle wholeness and living that comes when we're willing to pause and step away from our regular everyday, ordinary lives. 
    On this episode, we'll explore:
    Why is retreat necessary?  What should I consider in structuring a retreat? How could developing a rhythm of retreat be a factor in living more sustainably?  As you listen in to Episode 057 consider...what would it be worth for me to step away and pause to retreat and take a 30,000-foot view of my life and my business and what will it cost me if I never come apart from it all?

    If you're ready to come away for 48 hours on retreat, join us at the REALIFE Process®, February 21-23, on the farm in Mason, IL for our first foundational retreat of the year. On retreat, you'll get up on the balcony of your life and work to:

    056: Sharing My Word for the Year

    056: Sharing My Word for the Year

    Words are powerful! For the past four years, I've chosen a Word for the Year.
    Choosing ONE WORD to focus on every day, all year long takes intentionality and commitment. The word may sum up who you want to be or how you want to live–and beyond shaping your year, it can truly help to shape you into your best REALSELF. 
    Most years, my word has come fairly quickly or easily, but coming into this new year and decade, I struggled to find my word!
    To be honest, I was a little frustrated! 
    However, just last week a friend said a word aloud and it hit me like a ton of bricks! I knew the word was just for me! 
    I'm not certain all that my word will mean this year, but I'm embracing it FULL CIRCLE! 
    On this episode: 
    I’ll share my Word for the Year We’ll talk about how choosing a word can set your intention for the year I’ll share a REALIFE example of how integrating the Word for the Year with the Harmony Enneagram can help you show up as your most authentic self So what about you? What is your Word for the Year? I would love to hear. If you're not quite sure about your Word for the Year, click here to download our FREE Word for the Year 2020 Exercise. 
    Once you have your word, I'd love for you to email me at podcast@teresamccloy.com and share your Word for the Year and a little bit about why you chose the word or how the word chose you!

    053: Merry Christmas from the REALIFE Process®

    053: Merry Christmas from the REALIFE Process®

    Merry Christmas! As you're unwrapping presents and celebrating this week, there's one last gift just for you...
    This edition of the Enneagram in Your REALIFE is a special one with a story and a song.
    As a Type 3 on the Enneagram, I connect with the 3-6-9 Harmony Triad. I also have a very strong Type 4 wing which invites me to be creative and original. 
    From a very young age, I've loved to write music. As I've come to embrace the Enneagram as a tool for harmony and transformation, I learned how songwriting really invites me to be present in all three centers of intelligence as it engages:
    The body movement of writing the song The intellect of the words and lyrics coming together The expression of the heart This Christmas, I wanted to give you a FULL CIRCLE gift–one that's transparent, vulnerable, and straight from my heart to yours. May your Christmas be full of extraordinary moments!

    052: Embracing the Holidays When Christmas Feels Blue

    052: Embracing the Holidays When Christmas Feels Blue

    It's a "WONDER-FULL" Life!  
    As a wife, mom of four young adult daughters (including a set of twins), and the Founder and CEO of a residential construction firm, Victoria Mininger, definitely leads a full and abundant life!   
    Victoria is a beautiful Type 2 on the Enneagram who embraces each day with joy and has a passion for people that is contagious! Among the valuable life lessons she so generously offers, she is vulnerable to open her heart to talk about her struggle with clinical depression and the growth she's experienced along the way. 
    On this final episode of the Embracing the Holidays Series, Victoria shares about:
    Her struggle with depression especially in seasons of expectations when the need to "help" others is magnified Practical ways to manage energy and embrace the winter and holiday blues How she moved to take action to become the owner of a construction company Hiring her Type 8 husband to work with her and how they lean into the 2-5-8 Harmony Triad together Her passion to "build people" beyond building things As we continue to embrace all that they hold this year–the light and the darkness, the cheer and the tears, the presence and the loss–may we continue to lean into the authentic truth of who we are–head, heart, and gut to know that our whole stories matter and we get to bring them forward because "everything belongs." 
    More about guest, Victoria Mininger:
    Victoria is a wife to her husband Brian of 23 years, together they have four young adult daughters, with three in college and their youngest currently a junior in high school.
    Victoria is also the Founder and CEO of Bear Creek Outdoor Living - a residential construction firm in Central Virginia, where she leads with her husband and a team of craftsmen and women.
    Victoria’s passion is to build people and see them grow to their fullest potential as they hone their craft and pursue their own dreams and goals. Victoria often says this about her heart for
    Bear Creek - “At Bear Creek, we build stuff but more importantly we strive to build people.”
    Alongside her work at Bear Creek, Victoria also spends time coaching and mentoring other small business women who work alongside their husbands in business.
