APPROACHING THE SELF: THE TRANSPERSONAL JOURNEY: WORKSHOP 1 with Ian Thorp

APPROACHING THE SELF: THE TRANSPERSONAL JOURNEY: WORKSHOP 1Our ‘Self’ – our higher self/spirit/soul – speaks to us through dreams, symbols and images. In this experiential workshop we will explore some of the ways we can be open to its inner guidance. Bringing our Self into our conscious awareness can help us gain clarity on many issues, including health, relationships and life purpose.

Workshop topics include: symbols and images, sub-personalities, maps of the psyche and an introduction to the Four Functions.

The workshop can be taken as a one-off, or as part of the series of three (see website for more info).

THE MASCULINE & FEMININE WITHIN: THE TRANSPERSONAL JOURNEY: WORKSHOP 2 with Ian Thorp

THE MASCULINE & FEMININE WITHIN: THE TRANSPERSONAL JOURNEY: WORKSHOP 2This workshop continues the journey of exploration within; the ways we express ourselves in the world as we grapple with the duality implicit in our being. We look at the great polarities of inner/outer, head/heart, yin/yang, anima/animus, masculine/feminine, and how these affect our lives. The workshop is not so much about women and men, as about the masculine and feminine present within each one of us.

The great impulse to become whole leads us towards the need for balance in mind, body and emotions and the means of expressing ourselves through creativity and intuition to maintain it and the health we seek.

Workshop topics include: The Four Partners at the Marriage, Container and Contained, Symptom as Symbol and much more.

EVERYONE CAN SING! with Jackie May

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: St Mary and All Saints Hall, Ellingham, near Ringwood, BH24 3PJ
Time: 10am – 4:30pm.
Cost: £40.00

CREATING COMPELLING FUTURES:
DARE TO DREAM!
NLP with Sarah Frossell

CREATING COMPELLING FUTURES:<BR>DARE TO DREAM!<BR>NLPDo you feel you’re stuck in the same old rut?
Have you secretly got a compelling dream that other people tell you is ‘pie in the sky’?
Do you know you want something different but don’t know how to take the steps to get yourself there?
Do you want to find a way of beginning to think differently, of starting to transform your life completely?

Then this workshop is for you. Working in a like-minded, carefully managed group, we lead you in an exploration of your thinking; your dreams, your beliefs and your values. We will safely support and encourage you as you work out what you really want and dream of doing.

Then, using the success strategies of successful people, we will lead you through a process that will allow you to start to turn those dreams into a compelling future and concrete reality.

The techniques we will be using come from a range of sources, and are underpinned by Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), often described as the Psychology of Success. They are easy to learn, powerful tools for change.

Working with them will give you the keys to unlocking your own potential, of understanding that we all have real gifts to uncover, of identifying the small things that make the real difference to success and above all, of recognising the power of choice and how using that power can positively affect your life and move you forward into the future you really want for yourself!

"Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful space in which we all worked together. I’ve got heaps and heaps from just 2 days." JM

"Thank you Sarah for a brilliant course once again and for giving me the trust to live my dream." LM

This workshop can be taken as a one-off introduction to NLP, or can form part of the NLP Practitioner Training starting in April 2015. For more info follow this link.

Venue: Edmondsham Village Hall, near Verwood, Dorset. BH21 5RG
Time: 10am - 5pm.

MINDFULNESS with Penny Nicholas

MINDFULNESSMindfulness is a form of meditation that cultivates awareness of the present moment. It is about being awake and aware and living in the present rather than dwelling in the past or anticipating the future.

People often experience the following benefits from mindfulness:

During our day together we will have the opportunity to experience the varied ways in which we can bring mindfulness meditation into our daily life. There will be formal meditation practices that involve sitting, lying and walking. We will also look at mindfulness in our daily activities.

Please wear comfortable clothing including a warm pair of socks. You will need to bring with you a floor mat and a blanket.

My hope is that the day provides you will an insight into what mindfulness is and how it may help you. You will receive a CD with a couple of guided meditations on it. I look forward to meeting you.

Future Courses

THE TRANSPERSONAL JOURNEY with Ian Thorp
Towards a deeper understanding of the Self.
Series of 3 workshops

These workshops offer people seeking personal growth the chance to explore their own inner worlds, gain insight into their unconscious patterns, work towards freedom from the control of those patterns and thus find more meaning in their lives.

The three workshops:

are run on an on-going basis when we have a group ready to start. Please let us know if you would like to register interest and we will give you information on forthcoming dates. A certificate of attendance will be given for CPD purposes (14 hours per workshop).

For books on these subjects and other Mind/Body/Spirit titles, see Ian’s website: www.transpersonalbooks.com

CYCLES & STAGES: THE TRANSPERSONAL JOURNEY: WORKSHOP 3 with Ian Thorp
This workshop ends the cycle of three and presupposes a profound level of inner work; patterns and cycles emerge, energies and qualities. We explore the mystery of archetypes (queen, father, ruler, priestess, priest-healer, philosopher, maiden, idealist, artist, magician, for instance), asking which of them affect our own lives.

We explore our projections to see where we have placed our energies through the changes and cycles of our lives. We begin to understand that it is wholeness we seek and not perfection.

The first two workshops looked up and out, within and down: the self reaching towards the Self. In this third one, some descending lines have been established, down from the Transpersonal, back from the Self to us.

Workshop topics include: Control Patterns, Projections, Stages of Life, Archetypes.
