Reiki Level Two Attunement Session

Reiki Level Two Attunement Session

During this fun and empowering day you will be introduced to three of the four Reiki symbols, including the distance healing symbol. 

We will also create our own healing Mandala, learn how to use crystals to balance the chakras, and have a go at pendulum dowsing, learning how we may use a pendulum in a treatment session and how it may be used to heighten our connection with our intuition. 

This session will deepen your experience of Reiki, energy and healing and may enhance your spiritual, intuitive and personal development too. 

For those who wish to become a professional practitioner, you will also learn about the responsibilities of becoming a professional Reiki practitioner including insurance and other practicalities.

We also incorporate some biodynamic exercises, some gentle yoga movement and a guided energy balancing relaxation to prepare you for the attunement. The session will also include some grounding exercises and an opportunity for meditation.

You will have the opportunity to practice using the Reiki symbols on others and gain a sense of how they feel different and how they can be used to enhance a healing session and your life generally.

The cost is £220 and includes a vegetarian lunch, refreshments, snacks, a manual and a lifetime of Reiki and three of its symbols!

The session takes place at Cobo Community Centre from 9am to approximately 4pm.

Intermediate Crystal Healing Course

Each kind of crystal has a unique chemical and physical structure, which causes it to resonate at a certain frequency. This resonance is believed to give crystals their healing abilities. Experiencing this resonance can help to restore stability and balance to one's body systems by stimulating the body's natural healing mechanisms…

Yoga to Let Go of 2018

Yoga to Let Go of 2018

A yoga practice to let go of the old of 2018  - with a burning bowl ceremony

“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got!” Henry Ford

VENUE: St Martin’s Community Centre

TIME: 10-11.15am

COST: £11 for adults, £6 for students, or usual voucher system applies.

It’s that time of year again to LET GO of anything you do not want to take with you into the NEW YEAR so you may begin 2019 LIGHTER and BRIGHTER and ready to invite in the NEW!

Together we will enjoy a flowing ASANA (posture) practice linking breath with movement and checking in with our own wisdom to see where we can adjust things (alignment and thought process). It’s in this way that we can start embodying change, encouraging us to LET GO and do things differently! We will finish the session with a chakra balancing RELAXATION, leaving you feeling centred and grounded ahead of the new year.

Those who wish will then have the opportunity to stay on and join Emma in a BURNING BOWL CEREMONY where we privately write down all the things we do not want to take with us into 2019 before popping the paper in an envelope, which Emma will take home and burn in her bowl.

All welcome, drop-in (no need to book). Please bring a mat and a blanket for the relaxation.

“Everything that happens in the Universe starts with Intention” - Deepak Chopra

VENUE: St Martins Community (downstairs)

COST: £11 for adults, £6 for students or usual voucher system applies.

In the Indian tradition it is said that what you do on the first day of the year sets the tone for the new year. So what better way to begin 2019 and set your CLEAR INTENTION for the year ahead than by getting on your mat and PRACTISING YOGA (ditch the resolutions, they don’t work and merely make you feel bad about yourself!).

Together we will CELEBRATE the NEW YEAR with an active and energising yoga practice, linking breath with movement so that we can clear our the old and create more space for the new. We will finish with a short and yet powerfully transformative Yoga Nidra where you may truly plant your seed of intention for the year ahead.

At the end of the class, you are invited to join Emma as you privately write down your intention(s) for 2019 on a piece of paper and seal this in an envelope which Emma will retain and send to you at the end of 2018 – there is power and magic in clear intention!

Drop-in (no need to book), all welcome, please bring a blanket for relaxation.
