From the Author
A Year to Clear was an audacious idea that began as a series of questions: Is a yearlong approach to clearing (our stress and stuff) too long? Will readers be open to the concept of clearing as a journey, like a hero's journey or a pilgrimage that guides them through the peaks and valleys of their homes and hearts? Is it possible to make a difference in the interior space of a human being in just sixty seconds?
In a culture of short attention spans and quick fixes, I had no idea if a book like that would, or could, succeed. Would my slow drip method be too light to create significant and discernible traction? Would readers lose focus, peter out, and wonder, in the words of Gertrude Stein, is there a there there?
So I tried it online as an experiment: I created a 365-day course called "A Year to Clear What's Holding You Back!" that launched on DailyOM on December 31, 2013. Participants would receive an inspirational message in their inbox every day for 365 days. Now over 65,000 people signed on to take this journey with me.
It is testimonials like these that have put to rest any doubts that taking at least one minute to support and nourish ourselves is powerful stuff:
- "I have stuck with this for 40 days and, for once, have not burned myself out with gogogo. Just drip-drip-drip. Nice!"
- "I feel the walls of my OLD self crumbling down in a new way."
- "I'm looking around my apartment and seeing the physical changes I've made during this year and it's so satisfying. Inside I am less fearful, less depressed, less overwhelmed at everything and even a bit kinder."
- "This one year course has been a revelation. Honestly I didn't think it was working under the motto of 'nothing does.' Not true!!! I am on lesson 335. Wow, what a journey [it] has been."
In case you were wondering, the book is not a carbon copy of the course. Thanks to the experience and thousands of postings in the comment thread, the program has morphed and expanded. A Year to Clear has many more features than the daily emails, including personal stories, practical tools, and inspirational wisdom - double the content.
There is no question that clearing in any form lightens. Clearing with awareness, as this book teaches, however, en-lightens. A Year to Clear gives us a way to play a much bigger game.
I love this book, and I hope you'll love it too. Together we'll learn what it means to clear at a deep level, where spacious detachment rules and awareness changes everything.
Happy clearing! I'll see you on the trail.
-Stephanie Bennett Vogt

Unfortunately, I was turned off from this program by its new age aspects, which seemed to overshadow the practical ideas for clearing out excess. I think I have a higher tolerance for some of these ideas than others might, but somehow this didn't work for me until I combined it with other ideas from flylady and, better still, a facebook page that emphasizes a small decluttering job a day, going through one's home in the course of a year. That fits like a glove, and now, combining all 3 approaches, I am happy, and am enjoying the process way more than I thought I would.
The athor actually does recommend reaching out to other resources for more specific ideas on decluttering.
It could be that some readers will do fine with the exceedingly slow drip of Y2C and not experience the impatience and frustration that I did. Perhaps that approach would work best for people who are completely overwhelmed emotionally and really need to sneak in. For others, however, a nice blend of methods might work best, and there is something to be said for taking what one needs and leaving the rest.
