Going into the New Year with a Course in Miracles
Suzanne Quinney

"So will the year begin in joy and freedom.… Make this year different by making it all the same"

In this session we will look at how might make everything the same - by seeing the same opportunity for forgiveness everywhere.  We will also have a chance to look at a new game which groups of people can play to practice the course - called

A Course in Miracles is a self-study spiritual thought system, including Text, Workbook for Students, and Manual for Teachers.  It teaches that the way to universal love and peace-or remembering God-is by undoing guilt through forgiving others. The Course thus focuses on the healing of relationships. A Course in Miracles emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum, of which there are "many thousands." Consequently, even though the language of the Course is that of traditional Christianity, it expresses a non-sectarian, non-denominational spirituality. A Course in Miracles is a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion.

This year, it will be 50 years since the Course began to be written down. For those who are interested there are a number of social media and websites sharing Course material - for example see  and you can listen to the first ever ACIM Christmas Carol. "Christmas is not a time, it's a State of Mind." 

Suzanne lives in Liverpool. She has studied the course since 1993, and spent time with many teachers of The Course, including David Hoffmeister, Gary Renard, Ken Wapnick, Jerry Jampolsky, and many fellow group members.  She was a part of the Findhorn Foundation for nearly 8 years, and has taught workshops with Michael Dawson in Findhorn, and hosted a study group at her house since she moved to Liverpool in 2004. She currently is a co director of and teaches Appreciative Inquiry, a strength-based approach to work and life, and Positive Psychology.


20th January 2015 The Vital Life Force
Emma McEvoy

The Vital Life Force is the underlying principle or philosophy of homeopathy. In this session we'll learn about the energy bodies and layers and their interactions with each other. We'll also look at some remedies specific to the ego, use meditation to tune in to our own life force to allow healing to occur, and to collect soul fragments. 
All dis-ease is an imbalance that can be healed from within. When you get to know the way your body and energy reacts when out of balance, you can observe and allow whole-ness.

Emma McEvoy
 (BA (Hons), DipHomMed, DSH, MARH) has graduated as both a Classical and Shamanic Homeopath. She is also a Reiki Master and a practitioner of other holistic disciplines. Her passion for healing began with healing herself. Her practice, based in Aigburth, has been established for 15 years. For appointments ring 07989 445471 or email 
27th January 2015 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 0151 427 1607 or

3rd February 2015 Water for Health and Healing
Louise Cooke

Water is vital to our health, but in recent years the work of Masuro Emoto has revealed the consciousness of water with his pictures of ice crystals that have been exposed to different thoughts or collected from different places.
In the first half of this workshop we will explore why we need to drink water, look at the illnesses that can arise from lack of water and check our dehydration levels using kinesiology.  
In the second half we will activate our own healing water from a bottle of source water that contains water collected from sacred wells all over the world. This water has been collected by Patricia Cota Robles, founder of the New Age Study of Humanity's Purpose - 
From then on you can activate your own healing water as each person will be given a copy of the activation ceremony. The aim is to put this water into as many streams and open bodies of water as possible, so the vibration of this water can emanate throughout the earth.
Please bring a bottle or jam jar to hold the water. This will be a very powerful time to do this as it is full moon on this night.

10th February 2015Psychic Protection
Denise Wood

If you practise meditation or healing, visualisation, guided imagery or hypnosis or any other process that expands your consciousness, you may lay yourself open to "negative energies" from a variety of sources.

In this session I'll pass on the most useful techniques that I've learned in almost 15 years of learning about and working with energy. We'll look at:
  • Grounding

  • Protecting the chakras
  • Psychic attack
  • Space clearing and protection

The Shadow
Alan Roberts

"Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the blacker and denser it is." 
"The shadow is not, however, only the dark underside of the personality. It also consists of instincts, abilities and positive moral qualities that have long been buried or never been conscious." (Carl Jung, n CW 11: Psychology and Religion: West and East.)
In other words, our Shadow contains all the unacknowledged aspects of ourselves, both "bad" and "good", and we project these qualities outside of ourselves onto other people. By bringing these aspects into consciousness, assimilating and accepting them, we move towards enlightenment.

Alan Roberts has taught Yoga for 38 years. He has also been a scenic artist and carpenter at the Everyman and the Playhouse, taught in local schools and has a PhD in literature. Alan has already visited LHC to speak about Eugene Halliday and a variety of other topics - visit his website at www.alanroberts.or

Psychic Protection 3 - Tie Cutting
Denise Wood 

In any relationship with another person we establish psychic bonds, whether positive or negative. These ties persist even after separation or death, giving that other person some degree of control over us (and us over them) and draining our energy. By cutting these psychic ties we reclaim our energy, setting ourselves and the other person free and creating a more balanced relationship. Even the most loving of relationships will benefit from clearing these energetic bonds. 
In this session I'll demonstrate a method of tie-cutting, and then there'll be an opportunity for those who wish to work through the exercise in pairs. We'll prepare for this with some of the techniques we learned in previous sessions.

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 0151 427 1607 or

Alzheimer's Prevention Plan
Dalbinder Bains

Alzheimer's disease and age-related memory loss are on the increase. With the increase in our life expectancies, this should not be an inevitable path for us all. Factors in our diet and lifestyle have been shown to increase our risks.
Dalbinder will review some of the latest global nutritional research and review Patrick Holford's 10 step plan to stop memory decline, and reduce the risk of Alzheimer's.

Tie Cutting - Part 2
Denise Wood

We didn't get time for everyone to have a go at this last time, so in this session I'll do another demo of tie-cutting, and then you can try it for yourself if you want to. We'll start with some feedback from the previous demonstration, which had very positive results. I was also asked if this method could be used to cut ties to a place or thing, which has led me to some interesting speculations which I'll share. (I'll be needing a volunteer for the demo.)

The Grandmothers
Angelita Woosnam

The Great Council of the Grandmothers appeared to Sharon McErlane one morning as she walked her dog on the beach. These wise elders who represent all cultures and races on Earth said, "With culture so long dominated by Yang, the principle of masculine energy, Yin, the principle of feminine energy, has become deficient and weak. Woman is cut off from her sense of power and purpose, which comprise her beauty. Feeling this lack, she then seeks outer confirmation of her identity and worth. 
"In order to confirm woman from within herself and awaken man to the comforting presence within himself, the Great Council of the Grandmothers has come. We are here to restore Yin, the feminine energy, to full beauty/power so the world can come to balance. We empower women and comfort men, awakening both of them to the feminine principle." 
The Grandmothers' message is life-altering-taking us from a state of helplessness to empowerment and confidence -confidence not in the small self we have been told we are, but in the Great Self we really are.
NB. This is not just for women! 

Angelita Woosnam is a holistic therapist with more than 13 years experience in physical and energy modalities. She studied massage, reflexology, aromatherapy and is a Reiki Master Teacher and EFT and Matrix Reimprinting practitioner. She runs a "Grandmothers" group in Warrington and Runcorn.
26th May
Working with the Ancestors 
Angelita Woosnam

"Because there in essence there is no time, you will find it quite easy to work with the Ancestors-the Ancestors of your family line, the Ancestors of the land where you were born, the city and country you live in now, and the ancestral spirits of all places on earth." (from "Grandmothers Speak" messages.)
Our ancestors on both sides of our families are waiting to help us in whatever we do - all we have to do is ask. This work is crucial for the planet today - she needs all the help she can get and we are the ones to help her. By calling on the Ancestors in recognition, acknowledgement and if necessary forgiveness, we are allowing them to connect with the Net of Light and assist in holding and supporting.

In this session Angelita will share more of the lovely energy and wisdom of the Grandmothers. (See 19th May above for more details.)

Muscle testing for food intolerances 
Louise Cooke

This is a repeat of a very popular workshop from 2013. 
Food has a major effect on our body and our mind. Eating the "wrong" foods can show up through different symptoms, such as:

  • excessive weight gain, 
  • digestive problems, 
  • IBS, tiredness, ,
  • headaches, 
  • eczema, 
  • arthritis, 
  • asthma,
  • mood swings, 
  • poor concentration
  • a weakened immune system.
In this workshop we will learn muscle testing to ascertain which foods may lower energy levels. We will test blind 30 different foods from all the major food groups and ascertain which foods create problems for our bodies.
This workshop has so many applications, from testing food in the supermarket, to checking if something is going off in the fridge!

Homeopathy for First Aid - Q & A 
Emma McEvoy

Homeopathy is based on the principle of treating "like with like", and uses highly diluted doses of substances to treat symptoms which a larger dose of the same substance would cause. It has many uses, including first aid for common injuries and ailments. This will be a question and answer session.

Testing for foods and supplements that raise our energy
Louise Cooke

Each person has a unique energy system just like each of us has our own fingerprint. The foods we eat and the supplements we take impact each of us differently, making nutrition an individual matter. Our body resonates with certain vibrations and tenses against others, either stabilizing or stressing our system. What better way to find out what is good for our body than to test it ourselves?
In this workshop we shall use Kinesiology as a way for us to communicate with our body's wisdom. We will have the opportunity to test against a supplement test kit of 44 supplements. We will also have a range of health foods and super foods to test from Mata's shop. 
Please bring along your own supplements, flower remedies, or food you take for health. I have sometimes found some supplements are not helpful or a combination may interact with each other. We will have the opportunity to learn a simple technique for testing foods and supplements in a shop.

Radionics - Dowsing for Health Part 2
Emma McEvoy

Emma had so much fascinating information for us last week that we couldn't fit it all in, so she's giving us a second session. This week she'll focus on the use of a stone circle for healing. Bring your pendulum again (or you can borrow one.)
