What is Geopathic Stress?
Barry Hoon

When Barry came to talk about labyrinths recently he mentioned that he could teach us how to get rid of geopathic stress. In order to stop the whole audience mobbing him for the information on the spot, he kindly offered to come and give another talk. So, being a man of his word, here it is!

 

Bring your dowsing tools and Barry will show you how you can detect and balance negative earth energies and improve the wellbeing of your home.

Barry Hoon is a dowser, geomancer and labyrinth builder who lived on the side of the Tor in Glastonbury for 10 years. He co-created and built the Breemie Labyrinth in Aberdeenshire for the Summer Solstice 2005, which has become one of the largest contemporary labyrinths in the British Isles. He has recently launched a new oracle programme called Labyrinth to coincide with World Labyrinth Day. His website is: www.toriffic.co.uk.

Energy and Aura Techniques
Denise Wood

In this workshop Denise will be teaching some energy management techniques which she has learnt over the years and found useful. We will practise sensing our own and other people's auras, strengthening the aura using visualization and intention, and a few other handy things that you can use in your daily lives.


21st July 09

Balancing the energies in your home
(Geopathic Stress 2 - the 'advanced' one!)
Barry Hoon

In this follow-up talk from 7th July you will learn advanced geomancy techniques, including how to map dowse your property for geopathic stress, to detect and balance negative earth energies and improve the wellbeing of your home.

 

Barry wrote to say: "For this talk please bring with you: A4 paper, something to lean on, pens or pencils and most important a ruler, oh, and a dowsing pendulum. 

 

You will need all those things to create a map of your properties that you can dowse. It's going to be more practical than me just talking this time. It should be more good fun, I'm looking forward to it."

 

If you don't have a pendulum, Denise will have plenty for you to borrow - or to buy if you want to!

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / M.E.

Dalbinder Bains 

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (or M.E.) is a chronic, disabling illness that is said to affect over 250,000 people in the UK. It has a devastating impact on millions more through its effects on families and friends. M.E. can affect anyone, at any age, and from any ethnic group. It appears most commonly, however, amongst the 25-50 age group. Children are more likely to suffer more severely than adults and it can run in families. There also appears to be a gender bias, with two thirds of those affected being women.

M.E. disturbs many body systems and their functions, particularly the nervous and immune systems. In her practice Dalbinder is seeing more and more patients with M.E. and related conditions and she will talk about M.E. and her multilayered approach focusing on herbs, supplements and lifestyle guidelines along with case studies.

Dalbinder is a Medical Herbalist and Nutritional Therapist with clinics in Manchester (within Neal's Yard), and Liverpool; she also is a clinic supervisor for the University of Central Lancashire in Preston, on the Herbal Medicine course. After her degree in Herbal Medicine she is now completing a foundation degree in Nutrition.

She is passionate about health and our body's innate ability to heal. In her practice she combines both therapies and offers a holistic approach to health, with tailor-made solutions to health concerns and preventative medicine using modern techniques and advances alongside nature's own medicine cabinet and the vast knowledge of our predecessors.


22nd September 09

Reference Point Therapy
Denise Wood  

Reference Point Therapy is a new healing modality which works from the premise that all "dis-ease", whether physical or emotional, stems from trauma which mostly occurs before we were even born. Using a kind of regression technique, we can revisit those original points of trauma and clear them, thus releasing all the associated emotional and physical "problems".

Fresh from the RPT Level 1 and 2 course, Denise will attempt to share with us the essence of this exciting new method, and guide us through experiencing some of the techniques involved. 


 

29th September 09

Universal White Time Healing

White Time has been used by people since 1998, but it is claimed that it has been used throughout the universe for eons. Universal White Time Healing is a divine frequencythat combines colors and time to heal in past, present and future. Working with White Time is unique because it opens one up to the greater Universal consciousness. Deep clearing and reconnection stimulate physical, mental and spiritual healing, including aura cleansing, chakra cleansing and balancing, and more.

White Time healers generally work with angels, archangels and other light beings, who are helping to shift the planet to a new Earth with a new vibration of love and consciousness.

Health Matters - our bodies are amazing (1)
Dalbinder Bains

Every second we are repairing and renewing ourselves, and one of the most important factors that influence the way we repair and renew is the food we eat.

Dalbinder will start off with discussing the principles of a good diet, and trying to answer the question: are supplements really necessary? And, if so, with all the conflicting information out there - which ones?

Dalbinder will then go through some of the most common health concerns she sees in her clinics - initially women's health matters, with a look at a hormone balancing diets that may help with most common women's hormonal complaints such as PMT, fibroids, menstrual pain, irregularity, menopause etc and effective natural treatments focusing on herbs, nutrition and lifestyle.

Colour and Image in Everyday Life

Lynda May

 

Everyone buys clothes and chooses what to wear every day, but usually the only advice we get is if we ask the infamous "does my bum look big in this?" question.

 

Lynda does give advice - professionally. She is a consultant with House of Colour and will be giving us an introduction to wearing the right colours for our skin tone and wearing the right shapes and style for our body and personality. The way we look affects how we feel and by wearing clothes that suit us we can be much more confident and positive. Techniques apply equally to women and men.

 

Topics covered will include colour analysis using the colour wheel, basic principles of body shape and proportion, accessories and dressing for our personality. Lynda will demonstrate some of this on a member of the audience.

 

Lynda May is a consultant with the House of Colour, as well as a holistic therapist. Based in Warrington, she has been using these techniques with clients for 12 years.

The Transformation Game

Katharina Brocke 

 

An introduction to a powerful tool for personal and collective transformation.

 

Conceived and developed during the late 1970s in the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland, this board game is used as a tool for self-discovery, often producing surprising results. Players work with an intention that focuses on current life questions. With stunning accuracy a microcosm of their life patterns will emerge, pointing out their interconnectedness, their strengths and limitations, asking them to exercise their free will or intuition. It can help them to deepen, to release blocks and to gain new awareness, clarity and direction towards a more fulfilling and loving life. The experience is intimate, can be fun and life transforming.

 

Katharina Brocke has lived and worked within the Findhorn Community for the past 25 years. She is an accredited facilitator of the Game of Transformation with many years of experience and also works internationally for a Japanese Peace Organisation.

Using the Law of Attraction

Sharon Vickers

 

During this session we will learn in detail how to use the Law of Attraction to attract what we want in our lives.

 

The thoughts we think and the words we speak are creating our reality, whether we are aware of it or not.  What you focus on, positive or negative, will attract more of the same into your life. But how can we use this knowledge? Sharon will teach techniques for:

 

§          the power of feeling really good (to improve how you feel at any time)

§          the power of your mind (how your mind can work for you or against you, depending on thoughts and beliefs

§          using visualization, affirmations and goals to achieve happier and positive results.

 

The workshop will finish with a guided visualization.

 

Sharon is a Reiki Master Practitioner and Trainer who has been practising Reiki since 2003.  She discovered through Reiki the power of our unconscious mind and our power to heal ourselves through our intention.  Sharon is also an NLP Practitioner and a Master Coach, and since discovering the Law of Attraction in 2005 she has transformed her life.

Opening the Third Eye

Ann Walmsley Kennerley

 

The third eye is basic to all spiritual work;  it is the heart of the matter. The third eye can communicate what you need to know about the aspects of your life which are hidden to you.


Most of the energy which is moving through the third eye centre has to come from your heart. Learn how to keep the third eye open and to make sure that you have enough energy going through it from the chakra directly beneath it, for this is where what is seen, heard, felt, touched, is absorbed by the inner self and given a final okay.

Ann has worked for the past 12 years as a spiritual medium in the UK and Europe. She is also a workshop facilitator, teaching workshops and courses on Angels and Archangels, the Ascended Masters and Atlantis, and gives talks at seminars and demonstrations.
