Keys to the Golden City
Vicki Burke

 

This evening Vicki will talk about her journey with sound healing, with songs from her repertoire for voice and harp.Keys to the Golden Citybegan as a project Vicki put together following a year with John Wadsworth's astrological course the 'Alchemical Journey' and some workshops with Chloe Goodchild's 'Naked Voice'.

 

She then began developing her workshops as her understanding of the gifts she had been offered deepened. During this time she also began working with Tareth, a man who manifests the Earth's vibration as audible sound. This has had a profound influence on her work and as she become more aware of the importance of harmonics within our own vibrations that take us to higher realms of being, she has learned to listen to the music and wisdom that we all carry inside ourselves, discovering that it's a beautiful journey we can all take.

 

Vicki Burke has worked with music as a teacher and performer all her life. Her journey into the world of healing began with Reiki, crystals and of course, sound, at the millennium. Healing through sound soon became the core of her work and when she took up the harp in 2003 she began writing songs and integrating the harp within her Reiki sessions. For further information please contact Vicki atkeystothegoldencity@yahoo.co.uk, or visit www.keystothegoldencity.com.

Chakra Cleansing with Sahaj Yoga (week 1 Muladhara)
Pauline Moran

 

"The first chakra is situated below the sacrum bone in which resides the Kundalini, and its main aspect is innocence. Innocence is the quality by which we experience pure, childlike joy, without the limitations of prejudice or conditionings. Innocence gives us dignity, balance, and a tremendous sense of direction and purpose in life."

If possible, please bring a footsoaking bowl - or a washing up bowl which will be used exclusively for feet - plus a plastic jug, and a small towel.

This is the first of a monthly series, in which Pauline will take us through the chakras in turn, teaching the meaning, mantra and methods of cleansing each one.

The Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead

Hephzibah Yohannan

 

The Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, properly known as 'The Book of Coming Forth by Day', is, similar to the Tibetan Book of the Dead, a guide to the processes we go through after death, a guide to the Underworld. Today's talk, illustrated with slides, introduces the imagery of this ancient text, suggests how it was used and understood by the Ancient Egyptians, and how it is still relevant today, as a map to help us find our way through the distractions and complexities of everyday life.

Hephzibah Yohannan is a freelance speaker on topics including philosophy, consciousness studies and ancient ideas. She has taught Egyptology and Ancient Egyptian Art for the Manchester University Extra-Mural Department and the Workers' Educational Association.
