Tai Chi for Beginners & Improvers

Mon 15 Sep 4.30pm & 5.15pm @ Equilibrium Studio Every Mon till 17 November 2014 £80 for 10 weeks

Tai Chi Ch'uan is an ancient form of slow, graceful and rhythmic exercise which originated in China, where it is still extremely popular, often being performed in public parks early in the morning when the air is at its freshest. The style taught here is the Yang style Short Form as developed by Professor Ch'eng Man Ch'ing, currently the most popular form of Tai Chi in the U.K.

Tai Chi is sometimes referred to as 'meditation in movement' or 'swimming in air' for externally that is how it appears. It is a soft martial art, quite unlike karate, ju jitsu or any of the 'hard' martial arts which rely on force and speed.

Tai Chi strengthens our internal energy, and allows it to flow more freely through the body. It is gentle and non-violent, though after much practice it is an extremely effective form of self defence.

An Introduction to Mindfulness: 4-Week CourseAn Introduction to Mindfulness: 4-Week Course

Thu 11 Sep 7.30-9.15pm @ The Tree of Life Centre Every Thu till 02 October 2014 £60

Mindfulness has been used for thousands of years to promote wellbeing. It is widely recognised as being a powerful tool that can help anyone enhance their appreciation of life, manage stress, and even improve performance in activities and tasks.
Mindfulness is now recommended by doctors and is also used in schools, business, and even sport.
This course will consist of 4 sessions and will be a basic introduction to mindfulness meditation. It will include a range of mindfulness practices and provide an opportunity to get a ‘taste’ of what it means to ‘be mindful’. It will also cover some of the skills and attitudes which are at the heart of mindfulness.
The course will not explicitly cover the ways that mindfulness can be used to manage stressful or difficult experiences, nor will it explore in detail the way mindfulness can be used to understand ourselves and our lives more deeply. However many people find that doing the meditation practices helps them feel more calm and ‘centred’ and this course can serve as a starting point for further learning and practicing.

Tantra: Reclaiming the Goddess. Tantra: Reclaiming the Goddess.

Sat 27 Sep 11am - 10pm @ Unity Studio Early-bird £55, then £65

The term Goddess is sometimes used as an archetype to describe the sexual vivacity of a women, Marilyn Monroe is the prime example of this radiant female Goddess archetype. However, not excluding this aspect of Goddess, I use the term to describe a broader multi-faceted feminine, which is inclusive also of the deep compassion of the heart, the raw power of emotion, the wild untamed spirit of women, indeed including all aspects of the vast feminine Goddess which transcends contemporary notions and reaches back through our ancestry as Woman. Only in a women-only group do we have such an opportunity to really venture into these realms together, to reclaim what we mirror to one another through our empathic hearts.

This day is an invitation to spend time with yourself and other women to support each other to journey deeper into the mystery of the Goddess. The guided day will offer structures and processes especially designed for women to unleash those parts of herself which lie dormant, waiting to be brought to life. It is also a time to clear out, to let go, to heal parts of the shadow, that which sabotages or deny us the woman we dream to live.

Working with tried and tested Tantric techniques we will touch the core of what it is to be Woman. Providing space to feel, reflect and discover more of who we are and who we wish to be in our life. Supporting other women and taking support for ourselves we re-emerge surer, more fulfilled, and with greater confidence to live, bringing harmony to all our relations and the light of the feminine alive as Goddess to the world.

Specifics of the day include:

sexual trauma healing
to feel the joy and the shadow
healing the mother-complex
sexual trauma healing
yoni healing and appreciation
to connect with the power and beauty of Goddess
to move more deeply into your unique essence as Woman
"The Goddess doesn't enter us from outside; she emerges from deep within. She is not held back by what happened in the past. She is conceived in consciousness, born in love, and nurtured by higher thinking. She is integrity and value, created and sustained by the hard work of personal growth and the discipline of a life lived actively in hope." Marianne Williamson

“A consequence of female self-love is that the woman grows convinced of social worth. Her love for her body will be unqualified, which is the basis of female identification. If a woman loves her own body, she doesn't grudge what other women do with theirs; if she loves femaleness, she champions its rights. It's true what they say about women: Women are insatiable. We are greedy. Our appetites do need to be controlled if things are to stay in place. If the world were ours too, if we believed we could get away with it, we would ask for more love, more sex, more money, more commitment to children, more food, more care. These sexual, emotional, and physical demands would begin to extend to social demands: payment for care of the elderly, parental leave, childcare, etc. The force of female desire would be so great that society would truly have to reckon with what women want, in bed and in the world.” Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth

This will be an intensive day we will begin at 10.30 / 11am and end around 10pm. We will have breaks for food, probably as a shared meals, or the option to go out locally. More information will be emailed closer to the date to arrange this.

The price for the full day is £65, however there is currently an early-bird price for £55 available until 13th September. To pay make a bank transfer to 08-92-86 12155972 and send an email to say you're attending.

Follow your Bliss, VitalDanza.Follow your Bliss, VitalDanza.

Sun 28 Sep 7.30pm - 9.30pm @ Unity Studio £12 on door

An evening of dance to connect with body, breath and life. From shaking out the "old" to moving into sweet connection with yourself and others, into deepening of the present moment, opening, blossoming into the mystery, the bliss of being.

“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.” Joseph Campbell

VitalDanza is a guided class using movement, dance and meditations. The use of inspiring music from around the world, a supportive group and positive intention creates powerful experience of “waking up” to the best version of ourself which we can be. VitalDanza is a technique which takes us on a journey from fun, upbeat dances at the start into more relaxed and often profound meditations and dances as the class progresses. Each class has a particular theme to encourage the expression and poetry of our human nature and expression. Every class honours the feeling nature of the people who come to the group, welcoming everyone, and nurturing the capacity for fun, natural movement and compassion within all of us.

VitaDanza classes are open to everyone, no previous experience needed. Come and see how fun and inspiring it is! It keeps you fit and healthy too! We will learn to connect to our body more, this helps us be “in tune” with our self physically, and helps our mind be more at peace. We will explore dance, expression, vitality and will feel more connection with our own sense of vitality, and our joyful connection with life and love.

Conscious Relationships and Emotional Intimacy

Sat 11 Oct 16:00-19:00 @ Cornerstone Community Centre £15.00

We will explore through the use of transformational processes, how much of the conflicts that arise between partners, friends or family - or that keep us out of loving and nurturing relationships - are based on us not being aware of the stories, fears and self-judgements behind our words, feelings and actions.


We will also identify where you do not feel worthy of a love that reflects the highest and best within you and how you can navigate relationship conflicts with more presence and grace.

You'll discover what's behind any emotional triggering that you may be experiencing in your relationships and how you can access and heal those core emotions...

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Evening CourseMindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Evening Course

Tue 28 Oct 8xTues 6pm-8pm +1Sat @ Headway House until 16 December 2014 £285

Rooted in ancient traditions of meditation, mindfulness has become the subject of increasing scientific attention in recent years and has been shown to be helpful for a wide range of physical and mental health difficulties and for general wellbeing.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction will lead you through the key principles of living mindfully, and introduce practices to help you cultivate mindfulness in daily life.

In the course you will learn:

to stay in touch with the present moment and be less caught up in negative or stressful thinking patterns
to bring a non-judgemental and accepting attitude to yourself and your experiences
to develop more awareness and understanding of stress and helpful ways of responding to it
to use simple meditation techniques which can transform daily life, including sitting meditation, body scan and mindful movement
You will also be invited to develop your own practice through weekly homework (about 45 mins a day). We will provide course materials and CDs for you to do this. The course is open to anyone - however, applicants will be asked to fill in a brief questionnaire and have a phone orientation before their place is confirmed.
