Heart Circle // Sacred Self-Love

Join Felicia Rudolfo of Shimmering Light Therapies and Justine Nolan of East London Reiki for the first moon circles of 2019, focusing on the Three Diamonds or Tanden points within the Japanese energy system. As we build light energy in these centres we raise our vibration and accelerate our spiritual growth.

Our moon circles are multidimensional healing events designed to help you deepen your connection to your Higher Self, Source and Mother Earth. Held across the phase of a new moon or a full moon, we guide you on a journey inwards through sacred spiritual practices, sonic meditations, crystal healing, essential oils and energy healing. You will be gifted with a spiritually guided blend of oils and crystal to continue your work beyond the circle.

Our intention is to enable you to explore yourself with kindness in a safe and non-judgemental space. Through this self-discovery you may release emotions, limiting thought beliefs or situations in your life that are holding you back. Our aim is to bring you home to your inner peace and joy - to help you embrace yourself with love.

Together these three circles form a complete offering - working on the body, mind and soul - however, you are welcome to join us for just one or two :)

She helps reveal our gifts to us unlocks creativity and aids with protection and grounding. She allows us to face our shadow selves and learn from our experiences. Mugwort calls us into alignment on all levels of being, bringing the unseen up from the shadows into the light so to be released so we can move forward. Mugwort creates movement so that anything stagnant that we are holding onto can be cleared leaving us revitalised with a fresh sense of purpose.

Together we will drink a relaxing blend of hand picked Mugwort tea with Chamomile flowers. You will then be lead on a short meditation before you set off on a deeply relaxing sound journey with the gong and other instruments as your guide.

How to manifest your happily ever after: a journey of embracing your abundant self

You may have been looking for love in many different places but still feeling that true and lasting happiness keeps eluding you.  You either fall in love too quickly, or find yourself staying  in a relationship that doesn’t work for too long, or choose to avoid romantic relationships with men completely. Sometimes, you might be hearing a voice in your head which is telling you: “You are just not good enough to have a happy fulfilling relationship… ”

Is there a part of you that wishes that…

  • Instead of endlessly searching for love and belonging, you could feel whole and at peace while letting love find you…

  • You could allow yourself to be the centre of your own Universe and, at the same time, be the centre of your partner’s Universe, too…

  • Receiving love for yourself was as easy as breathing…

  • You felt deep in your soul that living ‘Happily Ever After’ is your birth right and a true possibility…

  • You could let go of striving and self-judgement, and just knew that you are enough…

If your answer is “YES!” this one day long immersive transformational workshop for women is for you. Why? Because you are not meant to figure it out all alone.

In an intimate circle of a maximum 10 participants we are going to embark on a magical journey into the centre of our Heart’s Universe and re-discover our power to manifest Happily Ever After and the life we most desire. All day long we are going to be exploring, sharing, creating, listening, reflecting, playing and learning. We will be allowing ourselves to show up and connect with each other authentically and without judgement.  We will be supporting one another and allowing ourselves to be supported.

After the workshop, you can expect the following results:

  • You will have an insight into what has been holding you back in your search for love and how to let it go

  • You will begin to believe that you are enough

  • You will be able to relate to yourself with more appreciation and self-compassion

  • You will feel more open to receive love

  • You will have an increased awareness of your power to make better choices

  • You will have a vision and a strategy for manifesting your Happily Ever After

Date:   19 May 2019

Time:   9:30 am – 5:30 pm

Location:   HOLDSPACE, Wynford Hall, Risinghill Street, London, N1 9SY.

The Inner Advisor
Mar

7:00 PM19:00

The Inner Advisor

The Inner Advisor workshop comes to London! 14 March at 6:45pm-9pm at Holdspace in Angel.

All the answers are within us, but often we can’t hear them because our ego or other distractions get in the way.

This practice helps us develop our "in-tuition" by listening to the advsior within. Find inner clarity and connect with your inner wisdom: information stored in your subconscious mind. .

This technique uses meditation and visualization. We'll meet, in our minds eye, with people we consider to be great and ask then questions. The answers can be insightful, eye opening and even profound.

Sign up here

An inner journey experience to connect with our intuition and hear the wisdom within.

This technique uses visualization and elements of meditation to find clarity and better listen to our “advisor within”. All the answers are inside us, but often we can’t hear them because the world and minds can be noisy places.

The practice stages an imaginary meeting with people that represent the best of the best in the life area(s) or topics we seek answers for. These characters serve as a vehicle for the voice of our intuition. It’s all about tapping into inner knowledge and using the latent power of our mind and bringing into awareness new perspectives that we may not have considered before. No previous experience is needed.

What to expect...

An introduction to the practice and it's principles.

An excercise to clarify our intention and focus

Breathing excercices and a visualization practice (typically with closed eyes*), in sitting mediation pose

What to bring...

Comfortable clothes as you would do for a meditation class.

I recommend bringing something to take notes to record the information you receive from the advisors.

Note on Time:

Please arrive promptly at 6:45 for a 7pm start. Doors close at 7:10pm. No late arrivals, sorry.

I recommend you to plan "me time" after the workshop to process the insights.

(*) A practice with closed eyes is ideal for best results.

Testimonials

Rio’s inner advisor workshop felt like putting glasses on to look at my life! I left with a clearer view into the questions I need to answer in my life right now, and how to think about doing that. I’d recommend a visit to the garden to anyone interested in self development and perspective : ) — Trish Kennelly — VP of Experience at Remote Year

--

Rio is someone who can take you on a spiritual journey without being super vague about it. He’s smart, kind and full of wisdom. During his sessions I learned how to better listen to my intuition. And, he truly is an awesome guy to hang out with — Mark van der Heijden — Founder at Wanderbrief

--

We visualized ourselves on a garden isle of our own design, and asked questions of imaginary advisors of our choice. What struck me was the difference between my own inner voice to myself — which at times can be negative, fearful, or doubtful — and the voices of my imaginary advisors which were positive, confident, and supportive. After all, it’s really just my own voice, but by framing it through the lens of others it allowed me to speak positively to myself, boosting my confidence and self esteem. It’s a helpful trick I learned today, and one I wanted to share. — Kellen Trachy- Marketing Director

SHAKTI, SHAKTIPAT, KUNDALINI:
Shaktipāt means a transference of Shakti (the spiritual energy of the Self) from the master to the student (you) with the aim of awakening the otherwise dormant Kundalinī in you, so that the Kundalinī Shakti (divine energy) begins to work for your enlightenment. Shaktipāt initiation grants you the grace of a semi-automatic sādhana (spiritual practice and path) known as Shaktipāt Yoga, Siddha Yoga (Perfect Yoga) or Kundalinī Maha Yoga (the Greatest Yoga). Rather than you reaching out to the Self, the Self now reaches out to you. This is grace and is the hallmark of Shaktipāt Siddha Yoga. It has to be given to you by an enlightened Siddha. You cannot learn it by study or get it through your own effort. Once you have received Shaktipāt and your Kundalinī (inner Shakti) has become active, you are a Siddha Yogi – a follower of the Siddha path.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Self-realization is the ultimate and the most desirable state to be attained, and the awakened Kundalini leads to this state. Awakening the Kundalini has a general purifying effect on the body and mind. For example, the health often improves, the one often feels light and energetic, the mind becomes restful. Diseases of the body and mind are caused by irregularities in the functioning of the prana, which can be gradually eliminated once the Kundalini is awakened.
At more advanced levels of the Kundalini’s progress the one can achieve peace and mental control, can become more creative, can develop a profound understanding of nature and experience inner joy. The aspirant becomes a stronger individual, a more complete person who can function in adverse circumstances with great poise, and is able to consciously absorb prana from the universe and direct it for physical and mental well-being. Ultimately, the student encounters total reality, the absolute truth, knowledge of the Self.

MEDITATION:
Shaktipāt will connect you with divine grace. Meditation is the way to get that grace flowing. Shaktipāt without meditation is not enough, neither is meditation without shaktipāt. It is like gasoline (Shakti) and a car (meditation). The car needs gasoline to work, and gasoline without a car won’t take you anywhere. Similarly, meditation without Shakti is dry and slow and like fumbling in the dark in fruitless attempts to reach the Self. And if you have received Shaktipāt and don’t invite the awakened energy (Kundalinī Shakti) to work in you, which is what you do when meditating, you won’t get far.

BIO:
Jan Esmann is an enlightened Shaktipāt master living in Copenhagen, Denmark, where he teaches, transmits and gives Shaktipāt. The highest teachings are transmitted in silence during meditation or afterwards. Jan is not part of any tradition or represents a lineage.
He has a MA in History of Modern Culture and a B.Sc in Art-restoration. He earns his living as an artist, a writer and a software developer.

Writing For Wellness

Writing For Wellness

Ever thought of trying journaling but not quite sure where to start?

Opened a notebook, seen the blank page staring back and then closed it again?

Seen someone writing away in a café and wanted to have a go?

This workshop will introduce you to journaling as a wellness practice, firstly getting you writing, the words flowing on the page, and then giving you specific journal prompts to explore feelings, to reflect on situations, and to set future intentions. It will include both short exercises to get you writing and exploring and also longer writes to delve a little deeper.

The workshop is suitable for complete beginners who have never journaled before, but may also be of interest to those with a journaling practice who would like to explore journaling in a more structured/dedicated environment.

What do I need to bring?

  • A journal. There are two approaches here if you’re buying one for the first time. The first is to choose one that sparks joy when you touch it, that you will love and want to write in. The other approach is that if the first option might lead you to feel that what you write has to be perfect in your lovely new journal, get something cheap and functional that you don’t feel any attachment to.

  • Ideally wear comfy clothing, maybe a favourite jumper

  • Your favourite tea (we will also have tea available)

Early Bird Tickets are £20 and General Admission is £25.

Yin & Reiki: Rest, restore & heal
Jan

2:00 PM14:00

Yin & Reiki: Rest, restore & heal

2-4pm, Saturday January 26th, Holdspace, Angel.  £25

Take some time out for yourself this January for some yin yoga, rest and healing.

Danielle will guide you through a nourishing Yin Yoga sequence to prepare you to deeply release and let go as we move into an extended Savasana.  


Yin Yoga is all about slowing down, in a world where we spend so much time in our "yang" fast paced energy, yin can bring you back to your centre, enabling you to soften and simply be.  Reiki is a non-invasive healing technique that works with the chakras and endocrine system and improves the natural flow of energy in the body.  These modalities work beautifully together to create space for stillness, peace and healing.

As you relax, Danielle and Georgie will move through the room giving Reiki to your head and feet, there will be plenty of time to soak up this beautiful energy before waking, feeling renewed and deeply rested.  

Danielle is a Yoga & Reiki teacher who is passionate about giving people the space to tune into their bodies and find moments of stillness and peace.

Georgie is a Reiki healer who offers healing in a joyful and playful way. Georgie is devoted to encouraging others to love themselves and in turn find confidence within themselves to live true to their heart.

--- UnEarthed & Wild Awakening present ---

Slow down | Recharge | Shine Brighter
 

The days are cold, the nights are long
We are back to work yet deep in winter
The trees are bare, our gardens asleep
Ah sleep, hibernation is calling


Sisters oh sisters here our call.

We invite you to stop and breathe for a moment

Breathe and imagine a different way

Stay cocooned inside, yet do so with intention

Intention to connect. Intention to love. Intention to be soft.


This night is an invitation
From our hearts to yoursOpen your heartsBe still to connect inwardsBe seen & be heard

Sisters we invite you to step into the circle.
Sara of Wild Awakening begins the evening. The intent is clear.  To ground, to reconnect back to yourself and open your heart. Back to your truth and tune into how you really are.You will receive, you will rest and connect to your inner-self and the earth. 
Feel safe, be held, and witnessed by the sisters in the circle.
Relax, be guided through a practise of scents, foot massage, meditation, movement and song. All is welcome. All that you are. 

With warmth, space and love, Sarah of UnEarthed, invites you on a journey.A Journey of intention. A journey to map you shining brighter in your life. A vision of how you want to feel, heartfelt. Intention is not a task to be done, or goal to be accomplished…it is a guiding principal for how you want to feel in this one and beautiful life.Setting an intention is like drawing a map of the path you desire, for how you want to live and be in your world.
Both Reiki practitioners, we will weave healing throughout the evening. 
Our intention is for you to leave with a clear intention, a sense of well-being and harmony as we begin this new year. An understanding that each week, each month, each new moon, you can start anew.

Join us for an evening.

This is a safe space, this is your time to be supported with care and love. Love UnEarthed & Wild Awakening x

Power of Emotions Workshop
Dec
8
2:00 PM14:00

Power of Emotions Workshop

Join us for an inspiring workshop- “Power of Emotions”. Our feelings are a magical gateway to our intuition and they give us clear messages about what we truly need and want. All of our feelings are valuable and by connecting with and listening to them, we can access their innate wisdom and healing power.

However, we have been conditioned to suppress our feelings and many of us find feelings like anger, sadness, shame and anxiety challenging to be with. We tend to use different coping strategies to escape our feelings such as food, shopping, social media or alcohol. When we get triggered in our relationships, it can be difficult not to react.

Feeling the whole range of our emotions is very healthy and empowering.

In this workshop, you will learn how to:
- Be present and connect with your feelings in an embodied way
- Listen to the messages your feelings want to give you
- Use tools and exercises to assist you with moving through and releasing your emotions
- Create the feelings you want to have

You will also have the opportunity to experience how colour, music and dance can empower us to connect with our feelings and shift our emotional state. We will create a very safe, respectful space and will guide you through a freestyle dance session which will inspire you to let go and connect with your beautiful, radiant self. You will feel energised, uplifted and free!

You will leave this workshop feeling empowered, inspired and alive!

The first 5 women to register will get the super earlybird rate! Click on the link below to get your ticket and for more information.

The Trove - Lucid Dreaming Workshop
Nov

1:00 PM13:00

The Trove - Lucid Dreaming Workshop

In this workshop, you will learn all about the practice of Lucid Dreaming and how to integrate it into your life. Neil Greenwood will lead us in a practical and illuminating exploration of our dreamscape, guiding us in making the subconscious, conscious.

Did you know that ‘Lucid Dreaming’ is a higher sensory power of ours? We are typically aware of our 5 senses, and occasionally delve into the mystical by opening up to what we like to call a ‘sixth sense’. But there are so many more sensory perceptions available to us when we choose to train our minds and bodies.

Lucid dreaming occurs in a sleeping state, when your awareness effectively wakes and you realise that you are in fact dreaming. From this point on you can play an interactive role in the dreamscape, taking control of the environments and people around you, even choosing the exact adventures that you wish to journey upon.

Read more:

Learn more, before our event, about Lucid Dreaming in this article from Neil Greenwood.

What to expect:

· Introduction to the concept and practice of Lucid Dreaming

· Practical tips and guidelines for your own dream life

· Guided Lucid Dream meditation

What you will get:

· A dream journal for you to use at home

· Useful tips and information about Lucid Dreaming to inform your own practice

What to bring: 

· Wear comfortable clothes as we will be sitting on the floor on mats and cushions

· Bring warm clothes for the meditation which will be done lying down

· A water bottle and a pen for hydration and inspiration!

Date: 24th nov

Time: 1-3pm

Ticket cost: £33

Reading Alchemy: Tarot and Crystal Workshop

It’s no secret that crystals play a role in intuitive and healing work - and have done for thousands of years, thanks to their energetic properties and vibrational value. We have designed a workshop for tarot readers and crystal-lovers to enhance their intuitive practices. Starting with the role of the chakra system and how it is applied, we move onto how crystals can support intuition, clarity and provide protection and healing.

The two-hour session will see a combination of theory and practical, covering:

  • Introduction to the chakra system

  • Crystals and the chakra system

  • Tarot and the chakra system (practical)

  • Overview of the Major Arcana and what each represents

  • Crystals to help overcome Major Arcana challenges

  • Three-card spread (practical)

  • How crystals can be used to enhance different types of tarot reading intentions

  • How to care for your crystals and the tarot

A booklet of the workshop's teachings will be provided for attendees to take home.

(This workshop is suitable for those with some prior knowledge of the tarot in order to get the most out of the workshop, however beginners are also welcome should they desire to attend.)

Please note: Attendees are required to please bring their own tarot deck (Rider Waite if possible).

Crystals will be provided on the day for attendees to borrow and use, but if you would like to bring your own, you are welcome to do so.

For those who want to treat themselves, a selection of crystals will also be on sale at the event to purchase afterwards (cash or card accepted).

So, if you feel it's time to improve your tarot practice by incorporating crystals, then this workshop can support you on this journey.

-

The event will be hosted by Fiongal Greelaw, founder at The Wellness Foundry specialising in tarot readings, psychic readings, reiki, past life regression and yoga.

Charlotte Vida Stow at The House of Palms will be co-hosting, due to her knowledge and training in India on crystal healing, which she applies to her reflexology practices at her East London base.

Renata  SelmaReis - Healing Wheel

7:00 PM19:00

Renata SelmaReis - Healing Wheel

The healing wheel is a group meeting with the purpose of putting people in touch with the subtle energies within them so that they can transform and align these energies into a frequency of harmony and healing. These subtle energies can be the cause of imbalance in relationships, negative thoughts, blocked emotions, health problems and lead to obstacles in both your professional and social life.

The purpose of the wheel is to connect with our energy frequencies and to
experience, using the law of resonance, that we are all one. In the healing wheel, one of the participants represents the group. They receive the therapy and everything that is healed and transmuted is also given to and received by the other participants.

The Sacred Fire - Energy Alignment is based on the principles of Shamanism, Quantum Physics and Transpersonal Therapy. The goal is to access the contents of the unconscious through channeling the sixth sense to identify features and internal potentials that need to be developed and then mutate these subtle energies that cause developmental blockages. Through a new consciousness and energetic frequency the contents of the subconscious change their pattern, promoting the attraction of new situations and the subject becomes more aligned with the purpose of their life.

About Renata SelmaReis:

Renata is a Brazilian holistic therapist, who has divided the last 11 years between Rio de Janeiro and London. She has been practicing her therapies for over 15 years, mixing holistic therapies such as Energy Alignment Therapy, Astrology, Tarot Cards and Craniosacral Therapy. She believes in the integration between mind, body and soul in order to restore the body and achieve a fundamental balance in life.

Head & Hands x &Breathe - Show Up For Self Care
Nov

Head & Hands x &Breathe - Show Up For Self Care

Just for today, escape your to-do list, drop your social obligations and responsibilities. Just for today, allow yourself a Sunday entirely for you. It’s an act of self-care just by showing up.

Sure, you know what self-care is, and you’ve promised to make more time for it, but lately, you seem to spend more time in your head than anywhere else.

Some days while you’re so busy over-thinking, you neglect what you need the most, locking into all the distractions. But when quiet time becomes an invitation to anxiety, you don’t dare make time at all.

You’ve been told to try mindfulness, but sitting still in a crossed legged position trying to empty the contents of your brain just isn’t doing it. Sure mindfulness is an antidote to unhelpful thoughts, but let’s just own it - mindfulness is hard.

You long to step away from past-dwelling worries and future-focused fears, and coax yourself back into the present moment, to enjoy the now, root back to your body and reconnect to your sense of self. But you haven’t found your way in, and maybe after some failed attempts, you feel reluctant to try.

It’s okay - we’ve got you.

For Clare it was movement and writing, and for Amanda is was slow crafting. So what’s your gateway to self-care?

Together we will spend a day venturing through different gateways, to find the ones that speak to you most clearly, the ones that give you a sense of spaciousness, grounding, a greater connection to yourself and clearer understanding of your needs.

Throughout the day you’ll dip your toes into journaling, embodied yoga, intention setting through self-reflection and guidance cards, tassel making and meditation.

Wedged in the middle of the day will be a lunch prepared and served for you to share with the group. At the end, we’ll gather over a cup of tea to seal the day and share any final thoughts.

Join Amanda from Head and Hands and Clare from &Breathe Yoga for a day of mindfulness and self-care, but not as you know it.

You can expect:

  • Inspiration on how to reflect on and decipher your personal needs and current state of being

  • An introduction to writing for self-care

  • An embodied yoga class to get into your body through mindful movement

  • A delicious vegan lunch prepared and served for you to share with the group

  • A card pulling and intention setting session

  • A tassel making workshop

  • An accessible meditation practice

You’ll leave with:

  • Tools and inspiration for finding mindfulness in the face of hectic city living

  • A self-care intention bespoke to you

  • Three handmade tassels embedded with your intention to take home, display and treasure

  • A greater sense of calm and even-mindedness

Please remember:

  • To wear comfortable clothes that you can move and stretch in

  • To bring along a notepad and pen

  • To bring along extra layer such as a jumper or cardigan in case you get chilly even with a blanket

  • (Optional) To bring along some snacks you might like to share at lunch

The ticket price includes a full day retreat inclusive of lunch.

After a decade being dragged along by her chronic illness and significant burn out at work, Amanda came to the realisation that nobody else was going to make time for her self-care. After discovering the healing remedy of slow crafts and self-care rituals, she started Head & Hands in summer 2016. Head & Hands is a curated store and diverse workshop programme founded on the art of slowing down.

Clare writes, teaches yoga and heads up Gather & Grow; a community for yoga teachers. It was grief and anxiety that nudged her towards yoga which led her to writing and mindfulness. For Clare these practice have helped her get to know herself, to understand what she needs and wants, how to rest, and how to act in a conscious way. They have shown her the joy of living with awareness and without rush. To Clare, a conscious and creative life full of opportunities to stop and smell the roses is a successful one.

Amanda and Clare have teamed up for this gentle day retreat, sharing their own personal journeys and offering alternative gateways to self-care.

The Houses: The Astrological Landscape of Life

The Houses: The Astrological Landscape of Life

The Houses: The Astrological Landscape of Life

Alongside the planets and the zodiac signs, the houses form part of astrology’s fundamental building blocks. The core meanings of the houses allow us to explore different areas of life experience, enabling us to learn where our energies are best expressed.

The houses direct us to where we will meet the ‘what’ (planets) and ‘how’ (signs) of our basic energies. The house that provides the home of each planet in our chart helps us to understand where in life we can best utilise the relevant energies, where indeed we will inevitably encounter their expression. Just as the Sun’s house shows where we can shine – where to focus our goals, assert our individuality and so move towards our true becoming, the Moon’s house points to where we need to feel secure and be emotionally involved.

In this workshop we will look at the structure of the houses - its hemispheres: north, south, east, west and its quadrants: the division of the chart in four and I will explain each house in depth.

Taken as a whole, we can view the circle of houses as a journey from incarnation to dissolution. At the ascendant, we have the ‘point of contact with self’ that symbolises the start of our life, our birth and appearance in this world. The wheel of the houses then describes the various processes that follow - such as establishing security, investigating our immediate environment, appreciating a sense of rootedness, expressing our originality, refining our skills, developing our ability to relate, deepening our connections, expanding our horizons, establishing our place in the wider world, sharing our vision and finally merging with something greater.

Note: Basic knowledge of your chart is required. If you came to any of my workshops or had your chart read by me please come. This will be a revealing experience as you’ll understand an intangible aspect of your chart, one that will make you grow in acceptance and self love.

Please email the following birth details to astrologyforartists@gmail.com after you have purchased your ticket: Day, Month, Year / City, Country / Exact time (from birth certificate).

Looking forward to meeting you!
When: Monday 29th of October / 7-9pm / £35

Scientia : A Different Halloween

Scientia : A Different Halloween


Connect & Create this Halloween, with an alternative event for those who want to celebrate with a twist :)

What exactly is Halloween? Everyone loves to get dressed up and carve a pumpkin or two on Halloween, but have you ever stopped to think what Halloween is actually all about? There is actually a deeper and spiritual significance to this mystical time of year.
This time of year is the time when the veil between dimensions is at its thinnest. If you are interested in building up your connection with your higher self or spirit guides, or even simply you’re own intuition, it is a really good time to work on these things.

What will the evening be about? Firstly - I want to make this evening really fun and playful, so I am inviting everyone to come along in some sort of fun attire. It may simply be a bit of face glitter, or a dress that makes you feel magical. Something that expresses and connects you to your inner sparkle!

The current energies are all about letting go, to embrace big shifts happening in our lives, whilst the lime light is focusing on our self-worth. Working with so many amazing souls, I see patterns and themes running through the collective week by week, month by month. I see it as part of my mission to create events to help individuals on the journey through these times, by bringing together a unity consciousness with good energy...

Connecting with higher consciousness is part of my daily practise, and part of my mission is to help others to do this too! Hereby, I will be guiding a group into a loving union with your guide and/or higher self, to initiate or deepen a connection that can be such a vital self-navigational tool.

There will be chilled out music, card pulling, lots of crystals (which you will be able to purchase if you wish) and to finish the evening we will all be making crystal talisman to take home with us, to remind us of our guides.

When, where etc? The evening will take place from 7-9pm on the Sunday 28th October at HOLDSPACE.
Tickets are just  £25 each.
There is limited space, so please book sooner than later to reserve your space.

Sound Bath & Theta-healing for spiritual development - on love
Oct
19
7:00 PM19:00

Sound Bath & Theta-healing for spiritual development - on love

Join us for a series of Mind Opening Workshops with Theta Healing and Crystal Singing Bowls. 

This series of workshops is focused on Spiritual Development looking to unleash your spiritual power to its fullest potential. Allow yourself to bring spirituality and the Universe into your daily life for positive changes in your career, quality of life, love and relationships.

Every session there’ll be further discovery and exploration of these themes. 

Maria (Fortunata Yoga) and Dora (Instantly by Dora) enjoy sharing their personal stories and how they use the flow of the Universe to make active, positive life changes. They make it into a friendly experience that can be as active or as passive as you like, for they invite attendees to also share their stories and thoughts or to simply feel the energy. Expect to leave the events with tips on how to bring magic into your life - and once you are in a good stage already, how to intensify and multiply it.

“Healing Sounds in Theta” events will always offer:
Guided meditation, when you are invited to let go of the day that has passed and to be grounded into the present moment. 
A moment for story sharing from Dora, Maria and everyone who wish to jump in, as well as guidance for privately setting our personal intentions for the workshop, when you will be clearly shaping our intention & request to the Universe.

Both Sound Bath and ThetaHealing will be given as you lie down and make yourself comfortable on the mat.

Dora will guide you on a meditational journey taking you far up in the cosmos, to enter the Theta brainwave frequency, and perform ThetaHealing commands and energy work – all with your consent - so that you can release all that no longer serves you and welcome the new and magical into your life.

Maria will stimulate you with the healing sounds of her Crystal Singing Bowls to open your heart and enjoy the musical journey as the sound vibration helps to release any emotional blocks, intensified by beautifully arranged crystal settings and dim lighting.

Leave the session with a little token, a crystal to take home, to remind you of the steps you have taken at this workshop. 

What is Thetha healing?
Theta Healing is a meditative technique conducted while the client and practitioner are in a theta brainwave state - an altered consciousness where brainwaves are slowed to a relaxed mode and open for change. As you meditate, with your consent, gentle words will be spoken to the room, words that your unconscious and subconscious mind will retain when they are in accordance to your values and truth. They reach deep into your heart helping you to heal, little by little letting go of old patterns and habits. 

You don’t need special clothing, just be aware that you will be lying down for the session.
Bring an eye mask and your personal crystals if you’d like, and a personal bottle of water – to keep yourself hydrated, but also to infuse your water with the set intentions, by the vibration of the sound bath.

Experience includes:

- Guided Theta Healing 
- A Crystal Singing Bowl Sound Bath 
- A space to relax 
- An opportunity to meet like-minded people and share your experiences 
- A gift to take home 
- Tips and tricks on how to use the Universe flow, the law of attraction and manifestations to bring magic spirituality into your life.

This event requires a minimum of 5 participants. If it doesn't meet this quorum it will be canceled and you will receive a full refund - or be able to exchange for another workshop if you prefer.

A Journey Through the Elements: The Core Energies Available to Us.

7:00 PM19:00

A Journey Through the Elements: The Core Energies Available to Us.

A Journey Through the Elements: The Core Energies Available to Us.

Join me to understand the balance of your energies and how to direct them creatively.

Learning the amount of fire, earth, water & air there is in one's own astrological chart can be hugely revealing as it shows the core energies available to us.

Fire as desire, action, will-power / ARIES, LEO & SAGITTARIUS

Earth as self-discipline, reality, making a living / TAURUS, VIRGO & CAPRICORN

Air as thoughts, ideas, relationships / GEMINI, LIBRA & AQUARIUS

Water as feelings, imagination, empathy / CANCER, SCORPIO & PISCES

By knowing which elements are dominant or lacking in our charts it can give us a strong insight into what needs to be cultivated, developed and released to reach creative balance. Which element is predominant and do we value the most, which one is a far away land and we leave it aside, which one blocks, overwhelms or limits us?

In this workshop we’ll explore the links between the elements and the ways in which we express, act, think, feel but – most importantly – the ways we search, get inspired, create work and live life.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Head & Hands - Bullet Journaling Workshop
Oct

2:00 PM14:00

Head & Hands - Bullet Journaling Workshop

A bullet journal is so much more than your average notebook. It can be your trusty task planner, portable travel-log, solo study space, a vibrant vision board of collected ephemera, doodle pad or even used as a tool for manifesting your dreams. It's that reliable, forgiving friend that is never too tired to help you make sense of the world.

In this digital age where we are never far from a screen, re-connect with this tactile process of offloading your thoughts, worries, dreams, and wishes onto the page. The therapeutic value of journalling is immense, it's an invitation to slow down, tune in to the self and release. Let your bullet journal become a radical and creative form of self-care in the midst of constant noise and chaos.

“Journal writing is a voyage to the interior.” ― Christina Baldwin

“I journal my joy, and my joy expands exponentially forevermore. So be it.” ― Amy Leigh Mercree

"The journal is a vehicle for my sense of selfhood. It represents me as emotionally and spiritually independent."― Susan Sontag

Explore the creative ways to pour your thoughts and ideas into the page, in this journaling workshop with Olivia Rafferty of Inka Journal. Make thoughtful spreads, vision boards, planner pages and more and play around with Olivia's enviable pencil case of stationary and bag of collected ephemera!

Olivia regularly uses her bullet journal to organise her tasks, thoughts, memories and in conjunction with her tarot reading practice. She captures her monthly 'plan with me' bullet entries on her youtube channel with over 63k views. A fan of hand-rendered type, washi tape, drawing, painting, and collage - she will share with you a range of techniques that she uses to piece together the fragments of your day, week, month or to just help empty the contents of your mind.

Everything you need is provided, including a mini-journal to get you started.

This intimate workshop only has 15 places, so be sure to book early.

Olivia is a multi-faceted creator based in London. As a songwriter, illustrator, and writer, she’s always been interested in ways of documenting life, and started her first bullet journal in 2017. Since then she’s gathered nearly 10K followers on Instagram, has worked with independent stationery companies and is now hosting her first workshop on journaling.

The Moon Is Illuminated by the Sun: New Moon in Libra
Oct
8
7:00 PM19:00

The Moon Is Illuminated by the Sun: New Moon in Libra

The Moon is Illuminated by the Sun: New Moon in Libra

The Moon cycle is about change and renewal. On a new Moon we can commit to a new vision of ourselves. We can open our hearts to receive guidance and consciously choose to connect with our authentic self and purpose.

On the 8th of October there will be a New Moon in Libra, so on that day I want to teach you everything I know about the Moon: the moon phases, how to follow the Lunar calendar, why does a new and full Moon affect us so much, the links betweens its astronomical features and its astrological qualities, what does a blue Moon or a black Moon mean? Most importantly, which are the rituals we can do on this new Moon in Libra? New Moon rituals can help us connect with our whole Self, and in that magic moment, commit to new intentions.

Come and discover the position of your Moon in your astrological chart and under which Moon phase you were born. We will look at the astrological sign of your Moon and how it relates to what we need, what makes us feel safe and how we want to feel nurtured and protected. This is a valuable insight into our character, emotions, behaviour and - most importantly - motivation in life. Knowing what you need is vital to be able to ask for it!

Join me in this intimate gathering where we will together hold a ritual to set intentions for the new Moon.

Please email the following birth details to astrologyforartists@gmail.com after you have purchased your ticket: Day, Month, Year / City, Country / Exact time (from birth certificate).

Looking forward to meeting you!
