Saturday 26 September 2015


THE HEALING POWER OF VOCAL SOUNDA key to our self-transformation lies in the vibrational frequencies of the chakras. The closer their frequencies are to the optimum the more we become free of negative emotions lodged in these centres. Through the process of therapeutic vocal sound the chakras are stimulated and re-tuned, clearing blockages and releasing fine energies. This can be achieved by various methods of toning from vowels to seed syllables. Some time will be also spent on natural sound rituals and Taoist healing sounds.
James D’Angelo, PhD has been leading self-empowering vocal sound courses since 1994 and is a leading authority on sound healing. He is the author of the books The Healing Power of the Human Voice and Seed Sounds for Tuning the Chakras: Vowels, Consonants and Seed Syllables for Spiritual Transformation

HEALING & MEDITATION WITH TREES This workshop is for those wishing to learn how to use and work with the wisdom and healing energy of trees. Our Ancestors honoured and revered the trees for their gifts and wisdom, using their Sacred Groves for worship and ceremony and their healing gifts on mental, physical, emotional and spiritual levels. We will look at how we can also tap into this wealth of healing and knowledge for ourselves and identify and work with what tree would benefit us on our own life path at this time. The day will include a meditative walk and some simple carving/whittling with wood. Please bring your own pen knife and wear suitable clothing.

BREATHWORK with Tim Swanson

BREATHWORKYes, we are all doing it, but how much do you think about your breathing? Understanding more of our breathing habits and how essential breathing is to our health is the aim of this workshop.

The main rule of the body is "muscles will only relax on an out breath". When we understand how that works, we have the skill to release and nourish tight muscles anywhere in our bodies.

Using gentle Yoga movements combined with simple breathing, we learn how we can deeply relax tight muscle groups, releasing habitual tension that causes pain and discomfort. As we let go we improve the flow of oxygen and blood, bringing vital circulation and movement to our muscles.

The workshop includes a delicious home-cooked vegetarian lunch.

Venue: St Mary and All Saints Hall, Ellingham, near Ringwood, BH24 3PJ
Time: 10am-4pm
Cost: £45.00 – including lunch.
