Mindful Clutter Clearing e-Course

Mindful Clutter Clearing E-Course January 16 - March 3

A 7-week journey to a more spacious home

January 16 - March 3, 2017

If you are struggling with clutter in your home, but need more support and encouragement than a book or article can give you, Mindful Clutter Clearing is for you! This is a powerful opportunity to make a change in your life for the better; gain space, time, and clarity in your home and life; and form lasting connections with a supportive and nurturing group of people who are working towards the same goals.

During this seven-week e-course, we will delve deeply into the emotional reasons behind the clutter in your home and life, take action clearing the clutter through weekly homework assignments, and get one-on-one advice and feedback through a supportive, private Facebook group.


Kind Words from Past Students:

I’ve learned so much about myself through this course. What a wonderful experience.
— Gina B. (Winter '16)
The course has helped me re-focus on things that matter in my life and how to get there: an emptier house and more focused priorities on how I use my time. Thank you, Laura, for offering this course. I would certainly be interested in taking up another one for more support.
— Ann E. (Spring '16)
This course helped me to not feel so alone! It also helped me implement every day mindfulness. Although my actual clutter clearing progress isn’t dramatic, I have learned to slow down and just be aware of my surroundings, and how they effect my mood and that of my family. I certainly will keep plugging along! I left each lesson feeling like I was on the right path. Yes, I am still working through and actioning the homework, but every lesson is enjoyable and spot on. Also, your voice/tone in the podcasts is very reassuring - thank you!
— Rachael Y. (Spring '16)
I highly recommend Laura Gaskill’s Mindful Cluttering Clearing e-course. Clutter had the upper hand in my home and it wasn’t something I was able to fend off without help. It just seemed too overwhelming and confusing. Laura’s course can help in a really concrete way with the information, steps, and moral support that are required to stop letting yourself be conquered by clutter. I am so grateful for this course. I met my goals without losing my nerve or my cool and gained the upper hand over a longtime nemesis. Thank you so much, Laura!
— Nan H. (Winter '16)
Your course led me to examine my life — something I did not expect. I spent most of my month with you thinking about my life, my space, my belongings, how large/small a living space I want ideally, people in my life and how they fit into my house, my wardrobe and how that affects what belongings I keep, and much more ... Much more valuable than just throwing a bunch of stuff out, which I have done before. Thank you!
— Anne H. (Winter '16)
Laura, I absolutely loved your course. I made a list of things that are different since starting your class and thought I’d share: (I’m sure there are more but this is the quick 60 second version) NO new piles! Paper comes in and it’s gone in 24 hours. That’s really big for me. And to think it’s been happening for 7 weeks! I’m so happy. ... 8 hours of sleep almost every night! Cleaning up kitchen EVERY night before I go to bed! LOVE this as well. Evaluating my clothes every day, small steps at a time. If I put something on and don’t feel good in it, I take it off and put it in the give-away bag. Or if I wear it and at any point don’t like how it feels/looks, I go change! ... Can’t wait for your next class. Whatever it is, I’ll be in it!
— Suzanne C. (Spring '16)
I really found that I had been going about decluttering and organizing in the wrong way before I took this course. It was more about sorting and containing the stuff in an organized way, but your course helped me see it all in a completely different light! I’m so much more pleased with the outcome and feel like I have control over the clutter and can take care of it before it becomes overwhelming. I still have areas of the house to conquer, but it’s much less intimidating now and I have confidence that I will accomplish my goal!
— Melissa B. (Spring '16)
I recently moved but I haven’t been able to move forward because my clutter was literally in the way. I want to share [this course] with all the people in my life that are stuck.
— Jacquie G.M. (Spring '16)
I liked the way Laura came at decluttering from multiple angles ... It meant I could dive into the aspects that were real sticklers for me and look at the others as areas where I felt clear already and that was empowering!
— Margo B. (Winter '16)

A rich, fulfilling, passionate life doesn't just happen, it's crafted. In this 3-week e-course, we will be giving ourselves the gift of a 'sacred pause' in the midst of our busy lives to reflect on where we are and where we've been, tune into what our hearts are telling us we need more of (and less of), and craft intentions for the path ahead. From the aerial view to the macro-detail, we will be examining all of the facets that make up our lives...challenging assumptions, broadening our minds, and allowing ourselves to dream wild and free.

  • Start date: November 1
  • Duration: 3 Weeks

[registration now closed]

In Deep Storage Boot Camp, we will be using mindfulness techniques and gentle, emotional support to help you finally tackle one 'deep storage' area of your choosing, such as an attic, basement, garage, closet, storage unit, or a packed-to-the-gills spare room. Through daily lessons (with breathing space over the weekends), weekly podcasts, and a printable workbook, you will learn how to overcome the fear of getting started by breaking down the work into doable mini-bites, handle items (like family photographs and mementos) that bring up intense emotions, and strengthen your decision-making 'muscle' so that your clutter clearing work can become quicker and easier.
