a new year, a fresh start
Begin your new year on a positive note by clearing away the clutter from your home and life, and make room for what really matters to you. With 7 weeks of mindful guidance, inspiring podcasts, and clear, step-by-step instructions, we will work together to gain more space in our homes, and face the year ahead with renewed energy and purpose.
Together, we will...
- Untangle the complex emotions at the root of clutter + let go of items you have been holding onto for years (or decades!)
- Learn how to break down a seemingly overwhelming task into doable bite-size pieces
- Make strides in clearing your space with confidence instead of fear.
- Gain clarity around what you truly value in your home + life
WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR:
You have clutter you want desperately to let go of, but sorting through complicated feelings (of guilt, fear, disappointment, or nostalgia) stops you from following through
You’ve read books and articles on clutter clearing, but can’t seem to move from inspiration to action
You feel that support and one-on-one advice would really help you let go of clutter, but don’t want to shell out the moolah on a personal organizer (who may not ‘get’ the emotional side of things anyway)
You feel ready to make a major change in your life and living space, and make room for new, beautiful experiences to enter
- You want to finally say goodbye to the things in your home that are no longer serving you

questions and answers
Q: Do I need to ‘show up’ online at a certain time each day?
A: No. While you can expect new lessons to land in your inbox each weekday, this course is self-paced, so you get to decide when you would like to read the lessons, listen to the podcasts, and so on.
Q: What do I need?
A: Access to a computer, and an email account are the only things you really need. If you would like to participate in the private Facebook group, you will also need a Facebook account, but this is optional. The Mindful Clutter Clearing Facebook group will be our online gathering space where you can connect with other students, but if you prefer not to join, you can always respond to your lesson emails — these go directly to me, and I am always happy to respond!
Q: How much time should I plan to invest each week?
A: An hour or two each week should be enough time to read through the lessons, interact with classmates in the Facebook group (if you wish), and dip into the course workbook or get started with the weekly assignment. Of course, the more time you can devote to your clutter clearing work, the more progress you will make! But feedback from past students tells me that even if you only read the lessons and listen to the podcasts, the shift in your thinking alone can do wonders - you can always apply the work after our course ends.
Q: What will I get out of this course?
A: As much as you are willing to put in! If you show up with your whole heart and mind open, try some of the workbook activities, and generally give it your all, what you can get out of this course is huge: more space in your home, and a clearer vision of what holds the most meaning to you.
Q: How will the Facebook group work? What if I’m feeling a little shy about posting?
A: The Mindful Clutter Clearing Facebook group is a private group only for the members of this course. Once you are registered for the course, you will be given a link to our Facebook group, where you can request access to the group (I must approve and add members manually, so please allow a day or two for your request to go through). I personally monitor the group to ensure that it is a safe, welcoming, and encouraging space for all. This can be a lovely space to connect with others who are working on the same issues, share photos or thoughts, and ask questions. Of course, you don’t have to post in the group if you don’t want to — being a fly on the wall can be enlightening, too! And perhaps after a week of observing, you will feel comfortable enough to dive in.
Q: The course fees are listed in dollars — do you accept payment in other currencies?
A: Yes! Students from around the world are welcome. Your currency will automatically be converted when you pay.
A small way to give back...
I will be donating a small percentage of enrollment fees from this session of Mindful Clutter Clearing to the White Helmets, a group of unarmed, neutral volunteer rescue workers working tirelessly in Syria to literally dig men, women, and children out of the rubble. I know that our contribution won't be enormous, but doing something, however small, can be more impactful than we know. Just as I coach my clutter clearing students to take things in small, bite-size steps and to keep going, even when things feel overwhelming; when it comes to the state of our world, I feel with my heart that the same advice holds true. Let's do what we can.
