Liz Smith ~ Founder of The Connected Life
Certified Life Coach. Meditation + Women’s Circle Facilitator.
Welcome to The Connected Life, a blend of online offerings and local classes, circles and workshops that support women to slow down, get still and discover new ways of navigating life with more calm, clarity and ease.
As a mother of three children, I understand both the challenges and the necessity of creating a more balanced life. A life where it is possible to experience an inner sense of connection and purpose, whilst also feeling connected in your family life, working life and community endeavours.
I believe that to create truly meaningful lives, first we have a responsibility to explore our own inner landscape. When you know who you are alongside the beliefs, thoughts and feelings that create the greatest inner resistance, you can learn to navigate your life in ways that work for you.
Simple practices when cultivated consistently, can help you quieten the mind, steady your emotions and support the life you wish to create. It is both my hope and intention that the offerings here encourage you to create the space to do just that.
"It takes immense courage to slow down."
It takes courage to take a step back and look at what is going on underneath the busyness, over-committing, maddening mind chatter and an array of other habits that distract us from the possibility of greater ease in our life.
Creating the space to ask the hard questions and get to the truths in your life, is both a deeply illuminating and often painful process. You may find yourself asking…
What is really important here?
What am I not willing to look at?
What is my truth?
You may also be wondering how to follow through with subtle shifts in thought and action that will support you. This is the reason I created The Connected Life. It is both an in-person and online hub for women who are ready to create the space to slow down, reconnect and find their own path to navigating life with more ease.
When I reflect on the paths my life has traveled, one thing is true; each path led me here. To a way of living that supports me to feel connected in service to my family and to the community.
Prior to slowing myself down, I spent much of my life trying to escape the busyness of my mind whilst riding the roller coaster of my emotions. For a while I found a false sense of achievement and worth in the corporate world. Only to then lose myself in motherhood. Always I denied myself the simple, joyful moments of stillness I dearly craved.
Gratefully a fleeting yet defining moment in 2012, allowed me to fully witness the extent to which I had become trapped in my own thinking. From that day I made a personal commitment to rediscover and reconnect with the person underneath the layers of cultural conditioning.
My journey has taken many twists and turns to arrive at a place of greater calm, clarity and ease. Utilising simple practices to cultivate an authentic relationship with myself (meditation, self-inquiry, healing and self-care), I’m grateful to be living a life filled with simple beauty and deep meaning.
How do you reconnect in a culture that seduces us to disconnect from our mind, body and soul? The Connected Life offers the possibility of reconnecting you as a whole.
Each offering at The Connected Life is created with the intention of encouraging a safe, non-judgemental, compassionate and nurturing space. It is my belief that stillness speaks. When you create the space to get still, you open yourself to the well of wisdom within you from which you can learn to navigate in a way that is true for you.
