Understanding Yourself Using Transactional Analysis
Amanda Onwuemene 

Transactional Analysis is a method of understanding our thoughts, feelings and behaviours through the analysis of what was said to us in childhood, what was not said to us and through body language. Understanding the purpose of how we function in the here and now allows us to make changes in our thoughts, feelings and behaviour in order that we begin to live the life we desire for ourselves. This session will give an introduction to Transactional Analysis through an explanation of ego states, script, psychological games and game analysis.

Amanda Onwuemene has worked as a Psychotherapist in private practice in Liverpool and Manchester for the past fourteen years using both Transactional Analysis and Integrative Relational Psychotherapy. A lecturer and clinical supervisor, Amanda provides training and workshops from introductory to Postgraduate Masters level in Transactional Analysis and Psychotherapy. Amanda has also trained in a range of complimentary therapies and is a Reiki Master, providing a holistic and dynamic overview of emotional health and wellbeing.

Exploring the Aura
Denise Wood

If you've ever had the experience of feeling someone looking at you, you'll know that your consciousness does not end at the outer limits of your body. In fact your energy field, or aura, interpenetrates, surrounds and extends well beyond your physical self. 
In this session I'll teach you a way to "see" your own and other people's auras and interpret them. This will involve some "artwork" (or colouring, for the less arty among us) so please bring any paints, crayons, coloured pencils, pastels you may have (or can "borrow" from your kids/grandkids.) I'll bring paper and ordinary pencils.

Denise Wood is the coordinator of Liverpool Holistic Circle. She's been working with energy for 17 years, and practises a wide range of holistic therapies. For information about one-to-one sessions, please email denise.wood@hotmail.co.uk in the first instance.

Didgeridoo Sound Bath

A Didgeridoo Sound Bath is a form of vibrational healing which invigorates and clears your energetic system. It can also help with relaxation and it can bring harmony to mind and body.
During a didgeridoo session the didgeridoo is played in the room and also can be played around your body.

Darren Greene has over 20 years experience in meditation, healing and energy work. He facilitates meditation groups and has now started doing sound baths with the didgeridoo.

Guided Imagery for Self-Healing and Personal Growth
Denise Wood

The imagination gives us access to aspects of our selves that are normally hidden and unconscious - the very aspects which create our reality, our health and our
relationships to other people and the world. Imagery gives us a different way of thinking about issues by allowing them to be represented non-verbally. It enables us to explore emotions that we might not otherwise be able to express,and to contact the unrecognised aspects of ourselves, leading to integration or healing.
This session will consist of one or more guided imagery exercises. Please bring something to write on and with. You may also wish to bring a cushion for your seat (the chairs being somewhat hard) and a blanket.

Denise Wood
is the coordinator of Liverpool Holistic Circle, and a practitioner of various therapies and healing modalities. For information about one-to-one sessions she can be contacted on 07809 670 904 or denise.wood@hotmail.co.uk

5th June  2018 An Introduction to Therapeutic Shamanism
Christine Holt 

Shamanism is our most ancient spiritual tradition. It has been practised for tens of thousands of years in every part of the world. Shamanic practitioners experience the world and everything in it as alive and conscious.
Therapeutic Shamanism is where shamanism and psychotherapy overlap. It combines the principles of shamanic work with those of modern counselling and psychotherapy. This makes it a highly relevant healing modality to modern life and its diseases. It provides an easily learnt toolkit of techniques and methods that are profoundly useful for mental, emotional and spiritual development, as well as for healing the body. 
During this talk Chris will give an overview of the work and also lead us in a shamanic meditation. 

Chris Holt is a qualified practitioner of Therapeutic Shamanism. To contact her about one-to-one sessions or workshops, email chrisgibbons01@hotmail.com or call 07958 058 191

Crystals for Protection 
Denise Wood

There are many factors in life that can impact upon our personal energy field, from electromagnetic frequencies to geopathic stress, illness and "psychic attack." There are also many methods we can use to protect ourselves and preserve our energy. Crystals provide an easy and accessible form of protection that can be used by anyone in a variety of different settings and situations.
In this session, I'll outline some of the main ways in which crystals can be used for protection, and demonstrate some of them. If you have any favourite crystals please bring them along, especially any type of quartz points (including smoky, amethyst, citrine.)

Denise Wood is the coordinator of Liverpool Holistic Circle, and a practitioner of various therapies and healing modalities. For information about one-to-one sessions she can be contacted on 07809 670 904 or denise.wood@hotmail.co.uk

Obstacles to Cure and Allowing Recovery
Emma McEvoy 

Obstacles to cure is a big subject in homeopathy. It was first suggested by Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) in his Organon of Medicine. It is anything that disturbs the action of cure. While we are now in the 21st century the subject is ever expanding as people have pressures such as work stress, chemicals, drugs, pesticides, pollution, allergies, diet, exertion and sedentary habits.
In this session we will discuss reducing pollutants in your environment, the importance of the microbiome, and lifestyle choices to boost health.

Emma McEvoy is a homeopath, Reiki Master and a practitioner of other holistic disciplines. Her practice, based in Aigburth, has been established for 17 years. For appointments contact 07989 445471 or ems.mcevoy@blueyonder.co.uk or visit her website at www.emmamcevoy.biz

17th July  2018Yoga Nidra/Deep Relaxation
Lynn Mooney 

This will be a mindful Yoga session, slow movements with awareness on breath and physical movements, simple postures to connect to your body and breath. This will be followed by a breathing exercise and then finally a long Yoga Nidra - a deep relaxation touching on the different layers, firstly the Physical Body, then Pranic Body and then finally the Mental body.
Please bring a yoga mat if you have one (there will also be some available to borrow.) Or if you prefer to sit on a chair for the session bring whatever you need to be comfortable.

Lynn Mooney lived in a yoga retreat in New Zealand for two years, where she fully immersed herself in the yogic lifestyle, followed by some time in India. She is now a fully trained yoga teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga.

Daoist (Taoist) Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology
David Knowles

Daoism is about living a happy, healthy, long life. Thousands of years ago the Daoists began to observe and analyse the world around them with this in mind. Out of this grew methods and systems to help live the life they desired. When the Buddhists arrived in China, their metaphysics added to Daoist knowledge. 
In time this knowledge created Qi Gong and Tai Chi, Chinese Medicine, Feng Shui, Ba Zi and Tzu Wei Astrology, and the I Ching. To the Daoists mind, body and spirit are all part of one whole, and are intimately connected and related. Daoist metaphysics is alive and kicking today; take a look at the four symbols on the South Korean flag - they are an important part of it.
This talk will focus on the fundamental concepts of Daoist Metaphysics, and on Feng Shui and Ba Zi Astrology.

David Knowles is an experienced Feng Shui, Ba Zi, I Ching and Dowsing consultant and teacher, based in Merseyside. He spent ten years studying these subjects with Doaist Grand Master Chan Kun Wah. David has a deep understanding and technical knowledge of these subjects, and Master Chan gave his permission for David to teach some of his courses.

An Introduction to a Course of Love 
Suzanne Quinney 

A Course of Love is a living course that empowers us to recognise, through our felt experience, the truth of who we are as human and divine beings-a truth much more magnificent than we could previously imagine. ACOL -

  • Was received by Mari Perron over three years (1998-2001) in the same manner and from the same Source as A Course in Miracles.
  • Renews the revelation begun in A Course in Miracles. The relationship between the two courses is described this way: "A Course in Miracles attempted to dislodge the ego-mind that has provided you with an identity that you but think you are. A Course of Love then followed in order to reveal to you who you truly are.
  • Stands on its own without need for readers to be familiar with A Course in Miracles.
  • Gently guides the reader from the experience of separation to the experience of union, which is also to experience the power of God and the force of love.

Suzanne lives in Liverpool. She has studied A Course in Miracles since 1993, and hosted a study group at her house since she moved to Liverpool in 2004.
