to Increase the Hum in Your Life
Don’t you think you have better things to do
than push clutter around for the rest of your life?
You don’t have to be a task master to be successful. You just need to keep taking steps closer to your ideal life. When you start now, you won’t have to put conquering clutter on your 2011 New Year’s Resolution list because you’ll already be on the path.
IMAGINE. YOU CAN BE ZEN IN 2010!
To help you, I’m offering a 4-week teleclass series to share a transformative process for finding that sweet spot of open space and order without feeling paralyzed by all the stuff swirling around you.
Are you afraid you’ll never conquer clutter?
Very few of us function perfectly, in a balanced way, all the time. On the functioning continuum with immobilized on one end and over-functioning on the other end, my goal in life is to be somewhere in the middle – I call it the just-right spot like the Goldilocks nursery rhyme—not too hot, not too cold, but just right. You might also call it the sweet spot or the “middle way.” Because I spend a lot of time and energy refining the middle way for myself, I want to share what I’ve learned so that you too can experience the ease and flow of living in this place of Zen. It’s not an overnight solution. It took me years to get where I am today and I keep refining my process to make it easier, less fraught with stress and self-doubt. It can even be fun – gasp!
Learn My 4-Step Zen Process to tackle any cluttered or disorganized spaces. You can use this process again and again . . . until you’re completely Zen because you and I both know that clearing clutter is not a one and done. You can make significant progress . . . even before the holidays. What a relief!

Is this program for you?
Has your life become smaller but more complex because of clutter? Do you avoid going to other people’s houses because you don’t want to invite them to yours? Has clutter embarrassed you, made you feel guilty, and kept you from having fun? Do you have a long to-do list of things hanging over your head (declutter this, organize that, finish this, clean and fix something else….?) Do your spirits sink when you look into the closet, open the garage door, or start to head down the basement stairs? Is there an endless feeling that you always have to work, work, work, yet your energy disappears when you have a few free minutes to tackle clutter? If so, you probably use what little energy you have left for kicking yourself around the block!
I know all about this because I used to have clutter problems and have felt the pain too. Occasionally, I need to trick myself to get started spiffing up my life (it’s a constant isn’t it!), but I always do get started because I have a secret weapon. Actually, it’s not really a secret, it’s a foolproof success plan that I’ve used in my own life, my clients have used in their lives, and now I’d like to share it with you so you too can declutter your life.
How many of these items describe you?
- Most of the horizontal surfaces in my house are filled with clutter and interesting things I don’t know what to do with
- My drawers, cabinets, and closets are too full of things
- I have difficulty making time to declutter and get organized….but I know I need to (and in some corner of my mind….I want to)
- I have difficulty throwing out little bits of things that I don’t know what they are – in case I need them later
- I have difficulty letting go of things that cost me a lot of money but I don’t use
- I keep all the sizes of clothes that represent a thin me, heavy me, younger me
- I have inherited furniture and other things from my loved ones and can’t bear to give them up
- I have difficulty throwing “leggy” wilting plants into the compost heap
- I collect something and have lots of them like books, tools, antiques, vases, dinner ware, belts or purses, Beanie Babies, scarves, stop signs, Christmas ornaments, dolls, costume jewelry, costumes, board games, CDs/videos/DVDs, record albums
- I have a problem getting rid of junk mail, catalogs, magazines and the like
- I don’t have a clue how to set up a filing system, in fact thinking about it is kind of painful
- I don’t have all my important papers in one place – in fact, I don’t know which papers are important so I save all of them and they’re spread everywhere in my house
- I do not have consistent routines – for fitness, eating, and sleeping. I’m all over the map
- I’ve had success getting rid of clutter in the past, but there”s just as much (or more) filling up the spaces – yo yo decluttering – like yo yo dieting.
- At least one of my close relatives is a packrat, paper hound, or procrastinator.
If any of these sound familiar, then this program will be a welcome relief.
You know life is too big to drag it around with you. And that’s why I’m offering this telecourse. As a wellness practitioner for over 20 years, my life’s work is helping people get rid of excess baggage in all areas of their life so they can live a healthy, happy life. Zen in 2010 is about getting rid of baggage (in your head and in your home) and clearing the blocks that keep you from making your living spaces a sanctuary to support and nurture your highest self.
Yesterday I cleared out five big lawn and garden trash bags of stuff from my home and took two car loads to storage. I have a sense that I am rescuing the best of who I am and have been and letting go of what really doesn’t define me.
I need to embrace people and things with one hand and let go of people and things with the other hand. Embrace, let go. Embrace, let go. I have spent most of my life embracing only.
After your class, I realized how important it was going to be to develop a different relationship with/attachment to ojects. I will learn to understand myself in a different way.
Thank you, again, Cheryl! I sure do appreciate your support.

Are you ready to be more Zen in 2010?
Can you imagine how good it feels to have clear spaces, tidy shelves, and organized cabinets and drawers? Well, I’d have to say it’s Zen-like.
In a series of 4 evening teleclasses you’ll discover my secret weapon – the Zen in 2010 Process – and work the process for each of these commonly cluttered areas of life: (teleclasses are recorded in case you need to miss one – mp3 audio delivered to your inbox after each class)
Session 1: Indoor spaces – You’ll learn how to create a sanctuary feeling–your special place in your home. There will be Zen Days, journaling activities and conversations that guide you in creating new pathways for energy, flow and peaceful relaxation. You’ll learn about letting go of excess so you can breathe, and bend, and move around your home sweet home. We’ll even bust through the allure of horizontal spaces to help us overcome common clutter magnets. And the Harmonious Home ebook that comes as a bonus in the course will help you declutter the three most important rooms in your home to up the Zen anti: the bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom.
Session 2: Outdoor spaces – We’ll head outside for some fresh air and talk about whether we see a junk yard, toy store, overgrown jungle…or just too many chores and not enough Saturdays to do them. You’ll take steps to declutter your most problematic outdoor spaces—front porch, deck, patio, entryway, garage, yard, vehicle, bike, tool shed, offsite storage—so that you can have a pleasant, inviting, outdoor environment. The pathway into your home sets the tone for entering your sanctuary. Let’s make it a pleasant pathway.
Session 3: Nooks and crannies – Here we’ll go a bit deeper—behind closed doors and drawers, closets, cabinets, and boxes to examine why we shut the door and try not to look inside. You’ll learn how to create highly specific routines and rituals that lead naturally to efficiency and order in your nooks and crannies.
Session 4: All things paper – Paper is the final frontier for many of us (e.g., setting up a bill paying system, handling mail and junk mail, filing papers, gathering important papers, organizing photos, displaying kids artwork, deciding what momentos to keep…). Together we’ll share our most troublesome paper woes and explore lots of workable solutions and systems so you can find something that works for you. And there’s a Zen day set aside just to work on paper.
In addition to the 4 teleclass sessions, you will also:
Make Zen Friends
Getting things done and staying on top of life is not always easy, but it’s easier and more fun with the help of kindred spirits. Meet your kindred spirits in this program.
Take Action during Zen Days (and Nights) in addition to the 4 teleclasses…
So what happens after you learn all this great stuff in this class? Nothing? Don’t let that happen. Participate in all the Zen Days and Nights offered throughout the program so you can Get Stuff Done in a way that’s motivating and fun!
Zen Days and Nights are quick check-in calls at the top of the hour for 5-8 minutes when everyone on the call (round robin style) quickly says what they will accomplish in the hour. Everyone calls in at the top of the next hour and tells what they accomplished (or got sidetracked by) and what they will work on for the next hour. These Zen “work” Days and nights are in addition to the 4 teleclasses. They’re the workhorse of the program so to speak.
These Zen Days & Nights are extremely helpful in getting off the dime with tasks you don’t want to do. And it’s a lot of fun. With the check-in calls, you feel less lonely when doing icky or difficult tasks. If it sounds goofy, don’t worry about it. Just try it and you’ll become a believer in Zen Days and Nights. Once you learn how they work, you can do them with your friends to jumpstart each other day or night.
The Zen Days and Nights will have themes to make it more fun and focused:
- Hang it, Dang it (hanging pictures, nick knacks, etc.—finally moving in!). This will be a “work” day to finish anything (and everything!) not just hanging pictures.
- Pile it, File it (handling paper and paperwork—taxes, bills, filing, getting off junk mail lists, etc).
- Icky Chores (cleaning the oven, clearing out the storage unit, doing a month of laundry, repairing the lawn mower, cleaning up the craft room, etc.)
I’ll schedule Zen Days and Nights when most people can participate (Saturday/Sunday Afternoon/Evenings – whatever works for most people). Remember, they’re in addition to the 4 teleclasses.
Plus, Get 3 Bonuses:
Bonus #1: Harmonious Home ebook – 40 pages of step-by-step instructions to help you declutter your kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom so your home can be more harmonious and support your self-care efforts (a $27 value)
Bonus #2: Zen Master checklist for decluttering your entire home so you have a guide and can see your progress
Bonus #3: Surprises throughout the program to keep you inspired and entertained
And you have my 100% guarantee
I personally guarantee if you make a diligent effort to learn—and work—the Zen in 2010 process, you’ll be successful in finding your sweet spot between absolute chaos and tidy perfection. Along with your Zen Friends, you’ll make progress that you never would have seen without this program. If you don’t, I’ll refund the entire cost of the program to you.
In fact, if you sincerely feel I fell short on delivering what I promised, I’ll be happy to give you a complete refund. That’s how confident I am that this program will help you.
Requirements for participating in this program
I really don’t want you to waste your money. I’m not offering this program to make a ton of money (proof—the low price). I’m offering this program because I’m on a mission to help people live healthy, happy lives…and they can’t do that if they’re dragging a heavy burden of clutter and disorganization around with them through life. So I’ve got three questions to answer to see if this program is right for you. Can you say “yes” to these three program requirements? If you can, you can get into this program. If you can’t say yes to all of them, now might not be the time for you to participate.
- I can give away at least 3 perfectly good things from my house in the next 30 minutes without too much struggle, difficulty, upset. (This shows you have what it takes to declutter and lighten your load—after all, I don’t want you to waste your money on this class if you can’t do this important step).
- I agree to dedicate time to participating seriously in this program (In other words, you’re willing to show up and work the program even if you’re nervous, overwhelmed, or busy.)
- I agree that I’m ready (even eager) for a big change of heart. (You’re ready to be Zen in 2010!)
This program is about working a process that really works! And getting support, tips and advice along the way from both an experienced clutter coach/teleclass leader, and from your own kindred spirits with you in the course. In fact, wherever you are on the Packrats, Paperhounds and Procrastinators spectrum, I promise you’ll move closer to Zen through this program.
