Gentle Rhythms

(1 customer review)


“The world is fuelled by rhythms. This is where you will find rest— in the swirls, circles and surrender.”

Amanda Viviers

This downloadable list of questions and creative exercises is designed to make your transition at the end of a year easy. You need clarity!

Answer these questions and you will find what you need to do next.



This retreat practice has changed my life. The rhythm of our every day impacts the shape of our future. Yet, as a society, we do not give much time to pause and reflect. Journaling and reviewing your year can be valuable for emotional resilience, personal growth and self-reflection.

Gentle Rhythms Guided Journal includes:

  • 31 pages of journaling questions and space to write.
  • This is not a physical product it delivers digitally.

A complimentary Spotify playlist for your personal retreat linked: HERE

Journaling and reviewing your year is a powerful tool for personal growth, introspection, and self-improvement. It allows you to make more intentional choices, develop a deeper understanding of yourself, and create a roadmap for the year ahead.

The definition of practise is a verb that describes the habit of repetition and rhythm. This series of creative exercises that are designed to help pattern your year.

Is it time to do it differently? Let’s do it together.

*This is an annual process that has been publishing for 7 years, each download has different articles and creative exercises but some of the questions are the same because of the cylical nature of the process. Other publications with similar questions and different articles Reflect, Dear Future Self, Pause, New Days and Begin Again.

Is it time to find clarity?

A retreat is defined as a “period of time set aside to reflect, pray, meditate or study.” 

This workbook is designed to be a perfect compendium for a self-guided personal retreat. Use this hashtag to see others taking a day this New Year to retreat also #FutureRetreating

    I purchased the Gentle Rhythms workbook not really understanding how big an impact going through the workbook would be for me. The highlight of the purchase though, was Amanda offering a 1 hour zoom session on Friday afternoons for 6 weeks to meet with her and other people who purchased the workbook, and to go through it together, page by page, helping me, encouraging me to reflect on my year and notice what I have learnt about myself…..good and bad! To have a go at journalling and assuring me there is no right or wrong way to write what comes out; it’s my story! I don’t have to write it perfectly, just write.
    Thank you Amanda! I have loved it. You have gently challenged me to write / journal my story.
    Here’s to my next chapter. ?
