SING YOUR HEART OUT! with Gilo & Sarah

SING YOUR HEART OUT!Sarah Pennington and Gilo return to lead a day of vibrant songs to nourish the heart and bring joy to the spirit. Their singing days are always popular and fill up fast so it's best to book early.
Sarah and Gilo teach in a way which is engaging and sensitive, particularly to any new to singing, and their workshops involve humour and a spirit of fun. They always bring out the best in a group of singers. The songs will be drawn from many sources, some upbeat and jazzy, some gentle and meditative — something for everyone. This year the focus will be on songs for the heart.
You can expect to smile a lot, maybe even cry a little, make connections with others through the power of the voice, and leave feeling your body electric with harmonic energy. No need to read music or even think of yourself as an experienced singer to enjoy this day. Just bring your voice and help us raise the rafters!

Venue: Village Hall, Cranborne, Dorset, BH21 5QB
Time: 10.30am - 4.30pm.
Cost: £25.00 (£20 if booked and paid by 17 September)

EVERYONE CAN SING! with Jackie May

EVERYONE CAN SING!Were you told as a child that you couldn't sing? Do you only ever sing in the car? Or maybe in the shower? Does the idea of singing give you the ‘collywobbles'?

Would you like to CHANGE THAT?!

We can all sing! It's often just a case of having confidence, and learning a few simple vocal techniques. This workshop will use powerful techniques from NLP to help you build your confidence and let go of old negative beliefs, then give you practical experience of letting your voice be heard, at a pace that is right for you.

And you will find that as your voice begins to be clearer and stronger, you will feel that way too!

Venue: Holtwood Community Hall, near Wimborne, BH21 7DT
Time: 10am - 4:30pm.
Cost: £40.00

ENERGY WORKSHOP with Tim Swanson

ENERGY WORKSHOPA day to nourish our Energy as we go into winter.

Often life's demands can cause us to become overtired, and can drain our energy on all levels. Stress and tension accumulate in our bodies, draining and restricting our energy.

Using gentle enjoyable movement with Yoga, lovely simple breathing techniques and meditation, we can boost our energy. As we let go of tension we increase the flow of energy and blood, bringing much relief to our bodies and minds. We can begin to understand more about our energy, the things that drain it, and how we can replenish it.

Using meditation in the afternoon, we will learn how to calm our minds and nourish our focus.

Tim Swanson has been practising Acupuncture and Yoga for many years.

Venue: Village Hall, Cranborne, Dorset, BH21 5QB
Time: 10am - 4pm
Cost: £45.00 to include a nourishing home cooked vegetarian meal.


Future Courses

Commencing Saturday 08 October 2016
Starting 8th October 2016

Seven weekends over 7 months

with Tessa Jordan
Please register interest with us — the workshop will run when we have the core number of people needed to go ahead.

This is the first level of the series of courses about the Bach flowers and over the two days we cover all of the remedies, including Dr Bach's crisis mix (often called Rescue Remedy), how to use the remedies, some of Dr Bach's history, his philosophy of healing and you will also have the opportunity to choose a personal mix of remedies. The course is friendly, supportive and interactive - and we have a lot to cover! Afterwards you will be able to use the remedies more effectively for yourself and with family and friends. You will receive a Certificate of Attendance showing the course is approved by the Bach Centre. Anyone with an interest in the remedies is welcome to attend and you can then choose to go on to the Level 2 if you want to know even more.

We would be pleased to hear from you and answer any questions you may have about any of the courses — use the contact page, or alternatively please phone Jane on 01258 840097 or Jackie on 01202 885294. For booking info:
