INTENTION: EMPOWERING YOU TO LIVE WELL
How stable are your blood sugars? The stability of our blood sugar has a wide range of effects such as: moods – mental clarity – energy – allergic sensitivities – metabolism – weight – diabetes – heart health and more.
Glucose is one of the primary sources of fuel and energy for the body. Most of us are all to aware with the feeling we get when we skip a meal and our blood sugar falls to low. At times like this our energy usually drops as well. Some people are prone to anger, irritability or depression.
Maintaining stable blood sugar (glucose) involves several steps and include
- Eating the right foods
- Finding food options you really enjoy and that are good for you
- Having a regular eating schedule with the idea to provide the body with a consistent supply of nutrients
In this workshop, Debbie and Glenda will show you how to improve and maintain healthy blood sugars naturally.

FACILITATOR: Glenda Irwin
Glenda Irwin is acknowledged as having taught thousands of people mindfulness practices.
Trained both here in New Zealand and internationally (Australia, UK and USA) Glenda is the senior facilitator of New Zealand’s most prolific mindfulness course; she is the supervisor of others delivering courses and is the author of the Level 2.0 further workshops for this immensely effective model of mindfulness tuition. As a therapist Glenda has helped parents, children, CEOs and athletes… make the transition from ‘expectation’ to ‘acceptance’ and in so, helped them blossom and reach new heights in their potential and joy for life.
Mindfulness practices use the present moment as a focus.
Participants in Glenda’s workshops and consultancy experience the profundity of their attention to this practice of ‘awareness’ but better than that – the actual act of drawing inward is a science based healing experience. The practice is not just a source of relief – ultimately, it is part of the healing.
Literally hundreds of individuals have made written testament to the efficacy of using mindfulness under Glenda’s guidance:
‘I only wish I had found teachings such as Glenda offers when I was younger. The gift of this work has meant I have lost my fear via my own attention and awareness. No bottle (pills or wine) could better the blessings of what Glenda has taught me.’ Shelley Compton, Christchurch, NZ.
Glenda spoke of her experiences whilst teaching, during an interview with Auckland’s Herald Newspaper in 2014:
‘I have been privileged to accompany people through the myriad of life struggles: physical and mental wellbeing, parenting, work/life balance, eating issues, sleeplessness… To watch an individual discover joy, despite the hardship they are working through, is glorious. But to know that the healing is happening by the very process of awareness; thats nothing short of humbling and ultimately, for me, an immense comfort. I could not teach mindfulness as I do, without having experienced these types of transformations myself…’
Glenda’s facilitation during ‘Diabetes – The Natural Approach’ will focus on eating, sleeping and pain based mindful attention. There will be meditations specific to participants needs and daily interventions that attendees will find immensely valuable during their journey towards peace and wellbeing.
