“…Daybooks have become inner food…answering a collective need and has become a spiritual sonnet of our age, a sturdy container for small doses of what matters.”
–Mark Nepo, “An Invitation,” The Book of Awakening
With all our best intentions and rich resources, why is it so hard to slow down, simplify, and care for ourselves? Why do most clearing efforts fall short or peter out? Why are we so afraid to let go?
Our drive to attain and succeed comes at a great cost to the soul. We are malnourished, if not starved, when it comes to compassionate self-acceptance, awareness, and care. We yearn for simplicity but struggle to find it. We ache for balance but can’t sustain it. There is no time to juggle it all, let alone clear the things and thoughts that have caused us to feel so overwhelmed in the first place.
Though well-intentioned, most approaches to reducing the excess in our homes and lives follow a linear model based on speed and outcome. Quick fix efforts result in a missed opportunity to address root cause, nurture real ease, and grow new habits that lead to lasting change.
Welcome to A Year to Clear – the time-tested, field-tested, slow drip approach to clearing your home and heart that lightens, enlightens, and lasts!
Leading space clearing expert, Stephanie Bennett Vogt meets you where you are and takes you on a yearlong journey of self-discovery, letting go, and transformation. With short contemplations, personal stories, tools, tips, and one-minute practices, she has woven together an artful mix of practical and nourishing wisdom designed to soften resistance and grow new habits that lead to lasting change.
Each of the 365 lessons – organized into 52 weeklong themes – offers a “slow drip” infusion of daily inspiration designed to release stress and stuff in ways that lighten, enlighten, and last. Journal prompts, that complete each lesson, help you stay on track, identify where you are stuck, and open the channels to your highest wisdom.
