Topic: The Dorn Method with Elke Schneider-Symons

Everyone strains more or less their joints on a daily basis. Unnatural repetitive postures can cause misalignments in the body if ligaments and muscles are not trained and able to withstand the strain. Sitting cross-legged or kneeling affects quite often the length of legs; carrying shopping bags on one side affects the balance of the hip; a whiplash affects the cervical vertebras. Irregularities end up in muscle tension and a nagging pain and if not corrected leads to other health problems. Dorn Method is a safe and gentle way to correct alignment where the client moves the joint while the therapist slides the joint into its natural position. The therapy ends with a nourishing Breuss Spinal massage and self-help exercises for long term maintenance.

Topic: The Balance Procedure with Yvonne Zackim

So why is being in balance so important? When our bodies are balanced both physically and emotionally disease can be healed and we are able to create the life we want rather than the life we don't want. The Balance Procedure activates the Language of the Universe with nine symbol cards each representing a geometric symbol, affirmation, colour, number, zodiac, gemstone, element, planet, chakra, and physical aspect and how when all is Balanced, it is the key to the unconscious mind. TBP is an energy technique that does not require an understanding of theory or precise disciplines but is learnt through practice. Knowing how it works is not as important as doing it. Rather than using the rational, intellectual level of consciousness, it requires the development of flexibility and expansion of consciousness. It is not the procedure itself that bring about the results, they are merely catalysts, it is the life force working inside each person that brings about the transformation.

Our homes are living breathing spaces and sometimes we can be drawn to them to awaken us on our path or to help us develop our intuition. Susie will talk about some of the homes she has lived in and what gifts they bought to her from a Feng Shui prospective and the ones that nudged her on her spiritual path. Her talk will invite you to do the same and as well as appreciate some happy homes, perhaps view some of your homes in the past to be gifts rather than memories of challenging times.

Topic: Garden Therapy with Jennie Starr

In Britain we are often considered to be a nation of gardeners and we have some of the most interesting, beautiful and varied gardens in the world. Many people describe how they feel that their life is enhanced by their experiences in a park or garden. Using my background as a clinician and gardener my talk will explore how gardens and gardening can influence our physical and mental well being. There is evidence of a variety of different approaches that have been used to promote health through our relationship with our environment. So whether you want to get your muddy clothes on and get down in the garden or whether you want to enjoy the fruits of someone else's labour I will give some suggestions as to how we can help ourselves, and others, to enhance the quality of our lives.

"Free yourself from yourself" Healing with the sound of music to release stress and blocked energy within.

It is an energetic healing process which clears emotional conscious such as stress, anxiety, fear, anger, sadness, tears, disgust, craving, boredom, envy and more. Can also be helpful to clear a busy mind and come to a still place within. Take control of your emotions and go with the flow. This technique combined with Om chanting, pranayama and meditation.

Topic: Crystals and crystal healing technique with Susan Warner

Susan began her formal qualification in crystal healing – after always having had an interest in using crystals with Reiki, Susan decided to train with Philip Permutt the well-known ‘Crystal Healer’. Then in 2019, Susan did her crystal healing practitioner certification. She just loves working with crystals and the extra dimension they bring to her Reiki practice. She would say that Reiki and crystals are her speciality, but also loves learning about different healing modalities, and all things spiritual and as a result, has been on many different courses and gained lots of different certifications. Susan has had ‘Angel light attunements’ to increase her connection to the Angelic realm and attended several Angel card reading courses; she has been attuned to the Violet Flame and certified in Mediumship. She has also completed an Energy Clearing course – to learn how to check for geopathic disturbances in homes and buildings and how to clear and balance the energies, to highlight but a few! She is always looking to add strings to her bow, to give the ultimate holistic service.

Topic: Chakra Dancing with Julia Karen Richardson

Julia Karen is a Homoeopath, Reflexologist, Aromatherapist, Vibrational and Spiritual Healer, a Chakra dancing and mindful meditation therapist. So what is Chakra Dancing? It is a beautiful workout for mind, body and soul. Through dance/movement we can free up our natural energy flows and enhance our lives by harmonising our inner and outer selves to discover a natural balance and vitality. The Chakras each resonate to different levels of sound or resonance. Sound waves move in a spiral or vortex motion, as energy moves up a vortex its vibrations move into higher and higher frequencies. Similarly the vibrational levels associated with the Chakras move from dense lower vibrations of the base Chakra into the much higher frequencies of the crown Chakra. (The music we will move to this evening has been specially produced to follow this Chakra vortex.) As we move through the Chakras you will begin to look and feel better, and on a regular basis your body will become more toned, your complexion will become clearer, your hair healthy and shiny and you will begin to not only feel but look younger. Come and join me for an evening of not only chatting about the theory of Chakra dancing, but also actually moving through and feeling your Chakras. I'm really excited to share this with you. Please wear loose clothes and light, soft comfortable shoes.
