Emotional Nourishment Class


Our gathering is an invaluable immersion into peace and wellbeing during our busy week. We will be sharing meditation, breathing techniques, and essential oil ‘tools’ for you to reduce stress and much more!
Emotional health is at the forefront of all our physical health. If we are vibrant emotionally then our physical wellbeing is likely to thrive too.
When it comes to our emotions and thoughts WE are the CREATORS, we can shift the way we think, feel and respond to life pressures and extremes.
In this class you will learn:
* In simple terms, how some of the brain’s systems work, in relation to how you react to situations, anxiety and stress.
* How you can use meditation, breathing techniques and essential oils to produce ‘calm’ and ‘happy’ hormones (brain chemistry).
* How to DE-STRESS your body’s chemistry, lowering your cortisol level (cortisol being a premature aging stress hormone).
* Which oils to use when RE-CREATING healthier ways to think with affirmations (creating a healthier ‘brain road map’).
* How to create a good nights SLEEP, after all if we don’t sleep well it can play all sorts of havoc on our brains and bodies.
* HOW TO apply oils, aromatically, topically and through ingesting.
* Which is the best way to APPLY to achieve your desired effect.
This class is for YOU if you are curious about essential oils for general purposes. You may already be aware of the power they have and you may feel you are ready to bring a valuable ‘tool’ into your life for you and your family’s health and wellness routine. Or perhaps you want a new direction in life with new resources to share to others and create an income? (We will also share information about building a business through essential oils).
Come and learn! We will be sharing our collective extensive knowledge with you. We will show you how to be empowered, finding solutions for a better mental and emotional state of ‘being’.

Soul Movement – Uncovering Joy

What obscures us from experiencing the JOY of LIFE?

It is possible to experience so much joy if we are free from the tensions that cloud this natural state of being. Our witnessing and care transforms stuckness into sweet flow and into the direction of being able to celebrate the blossoming of life, which is so prominent in our flourishing spring environment right now. Come and be guided on a sweet soul nourishing journey.

What is Soul Movement?

* Created in 2008, under the original name of Bare Feet Ecstatic Dance by Maria, Soul Movement is an exhilarating and nurturing mind, body and spirit dance and movement journey, taking us into the core of our hearts and innate creativity. It helps to release stuck patterns in our mind, body and spirit and we are left pulsating with life and more empowered to live from a place of truth and soul integrity, where spontaneity resides. It is inspired by beautiful music and held in a sweet and gentle dimly lit space with the aim of dropping deeply into our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern ‘for the “grace” or beauty of the dance. It is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation which develops a direct body-mind-spirit connection, letting your body and inner guide be your teachers and healers.

When: Friday 18th May
Where: The Bridge Family Centre. Take a sharp right into the old St Marks School site at the bottom of St Saviours Hill.
Bring: Water and blanket
Wear: Layers and comfy clothes to move freely in.
Cost: £12 or call me for concessionary rates if needed.
Contact: Maria on 07797832400 or email

Maria has been in the health and wellbeing industry since leaving school and has been holding meditation and inner journey healing spaces for over 10 years. She is passionate about helping to resource others to be empowered, happier, healthier, with the freedom to live with authenticity and simplicity.

Laughing and Dancing for Life

Soul Movement has had yet another rebirth and return back into the community here in Jersey.

After nearly 3 years of tending to my beautiful new daughter, I realised it was time to come back and begin our dances again. We began our evening with 45 minutes of strange guffawing, cackling and gibberish.  Johann Liffey and I held the space for our lovely crew and everyone seemed to really get into the slight insanity that is laughter yoga!

We wound down with a sweet heart meditation and relaxation and a few more people joined us for our dance. Did I say dance? Actually we completely raved it up and sweated our tears, prayers and intentions on this new moon time. Amazing to see all the familiar faces back again.

I felt nervous coming back to this space holding role again after such a long time out, but actually it was gorgeous to be back in such good company again. I felt blessed to be able to hold this space for others which actually really grounds me and gives me a sweet outlet for service and creativity that feels a bit like home for me in some ways. Dance is a magical portal into emerging our wonderful potential as well as bringing with it deep healing. For me, there is no greater tool that connects us to the fullness of life and who we are. This tool takes us into the edge and beyond of our comfort zone. That place where restraints dissolve and transformations take place.

Looking forward so much to our next gathering in month: Sistermoon – A Dance and Gathering Just for Women which will be a deep journey and enquiry into the loss of the feminine in our world and the emerging rebirth that is rising up through the earth and through our hearts and bones. Come and dance with us dear women.

Love Maria


Bilingual Baby

Suki is not yet 2 and a half and already makes perfect sentences in both English and Spanish.

She delights often in saying words in Spanish to me and then bursting into a dry laughter at my confused face as she proclaims ‘is that Spanish??’ Her sense of humour is incredibly cheeky and trickster like!

She loves playdough, our current favourite is making food and pretending to eat it and her favourite music is a cute cartoon monkey mother and child called ‘Tee and Mo’ that ding songs about tidying up and loving each other. Just too sweet.

She loves to dance and everyday she tells me about all the people she feels shy of. Constantly disclosing her sweet vulnerabilities in such an open hearted way that only a trusting, unshame-bombed child would do. We talk a lot about what makes her happy and sad and she is already pretty emotionally literate.

Today we had such fun having some rough play this morning. It’s such a bonding thing to do with her and leaves her shining with endorphins for the rest of the day. After that we walked slowly up to the nearby dolmen from our house for some games of hide and seek. She keeps me forever young.


SISTERMOON – Full Moon Dance and Gathering for Women


Friday 29th June
“Reclaiming the Magical Child Within”
Join our sacred space to dance, share and love together at full moon time.
Each gathering we focus on a different theme and dance into the heart of our feeling world to journey, create empowering ritual, reflect and meditate with the following:-
What does it mean to be a woman?
What part do our emotions play in setting us free?
How can we become more open and radiant as women?
How can we support better our dreams and desires?
This month we’ll give time and energy to the magical inner divine child within us all and create a space for healing and nourishment to the parts of our child that were not seen, validated or honoured. By doing this we create energy for integration to reclaim lost part of ourselves intrinsic to the unfolding of our vibrant energy today as women.
What could happen if us women gave ourselves the time and energy to dive in and explore our power and possibilities in a sacred supportive space? 
Dance is a magical portal to ride us into this journey as it fully supports our feminine nature and unfolding healing processes. In the realm of conscious dance, transformation happens.
This isn’t a place where we’ll be impressing each other with our dance moves. We will drop in deeply to our bodies and our space will support authentic healing movement and our own unfolding creative expression.
We also use some yummy essential oils to support and nurture us, and nibble on delicious raw chocolate!
Date: Friday 29th June
Venue: The Bridge Centre, St Saviour
Facilitator: Maria Barnicoat
Time: 7.00 -9.15pm (please arrive at least 10min before)
Bring: Notebook and blanket. Wear comfy layers.

About the facilitator: Maria has been holding spaces for meditation, dance and reflection for over 10 years and particularly feels passionate about helping to create sisterhood, empowerment and connection in women and in our community.
