Wild Earth Dance (Re-wild your body, mind and spirit)

 

 

Dive with us into the deep waters of conscious ecstatic dance to access the wisdom and power in the body..

** BOOK EARLY AND SAVE £5 **

We gather together on an open floor space, where our bodies move freely without judgment or concern for the “grace” or beauty of the dance, a place where we can fully be ourselves without apology through a moving body prayer, cultivating acceptance and compassion of the beautiful and tragic human condition

Our hall is dimly lit without specific observers or verbal conversation. Suggestions and invitations are given through a microphone by the facilitator in a space that is held enough to feel safe and yet open enough to encourage creative freedom of expression. Newcomers are always welcome. There is much evidence to suggest that creative movement and dance supports a happy, healthy and fulfilled life.

When: Saturday 8th June

** Bring: water, blanket
** Wear: comfy layers
** Cost: book your place before 4th June and pay earlybird price of just £10 … otherwise £15 after and on the door.
** Location: The Bridge Family Centre in Le Geyt Road
** Time: 7pm to 9pm.

Please arrive 10 minutes early to begin on time together.

The evening is facilitated by Maria Barnicoat who started holding regular conscious dance classes back in 2008 (‘bare foot ecstatic dance’ and later ‘soul movement’) after immersing in shamanic dance practices that supported and deepened her personal growth and spiritual journey. She is influenced strongly by 5Rhythms, Movement Medicine, Soul Motion, Buddhism, Nature and Mysticism with a passion for loving our planet, staying grateful and overthrowing the patriarchy.

“Dance, and make joyous the love around you. Dance, and your veils which hide the Light shall swirl in a heap at your feet.”— Rumi

DECLARE CLIMATE EMERGENCY NOW

People of Jersey. The time for change is NOW.

Unite with us to create a better island for ALL!

Stand with us at our event:

DECLARE CLIMATE EMERGENCY NOW

In rallying support from our islanders with our movement.

On Monday 15th April 1pm – 2.15pm, Royal Square.

Join our facebook group to discover ways we can live more environmentally conscious together.

The aim of this group is to gather, unite and mobilise as many groups and individuals here in the Channel Islands with passion and concern for the environment and our future to affect change as a part of a global uprising. As a group under the Extinction Rebellion flag we aim to follow their principles and values as well as working towards their 3 demands by taking action from the 15th April.

 

OUR DEMANDS:

1- The Government must tell the truth about the climate and wider ecological emergency, reverse inconsistent policies and work alongside the media to communicate with citizens.

2-The Government must enact legally binding policy measures to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025 and to reduce consumption levels.

3- A national Citizen’s Assembly to oversee the changes, as part of creating a democracy fit for purpose. We are in an age of abrupt climate breakdown & ecocide. It’s time to take action. You can join us – this is your movement & future too.

 

To keep updated and support our island transitioning into a CARBON NEUTRAL FUTURE join our facebook group above or keep checking back to this page!

 

TOGETHER WE RISE

FREE Laughter Yoga Class

Laughing keeps us healthy and young

Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea – simple and profound. An exercise routine, it is sweeping the world and is a complete wellbeing workout.

The brainchild of Dr. Madan Kataria, a Physician from Mumbai, India, launched the first Laughter Club at a Park on March 13, 1995, with merely a handful of persons. Today, it has become a worldwide phenomenon.

Laughter Yoga combines Unconditional Laughter with Yogic Breathing (Pranayama). Anyone can Laugh for No Reason, without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. Laughter is simulated as a body exercise in a group; with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter. The concept of Laughter Yoga is based on a scientific fact that the body cannot differentiate between fake and real laughter. One gets the same physiological and psychological benefits.

The class is happening before the Wild Earth Dance at 7pm.  Please message or email mariaearthbeauty@gmail.com to book your free place for the Laughter Yoga Class.

Wild Earth Dance

A dance floor for you to journey into a deep connection with yourself and experience the liberation and ecstatic relief of full body integration and presence through conscious movement.

 

Our space is dimly lit with a supportive creative community of bodies being facilitated into moving meditation through gentle encouragement of moment by moment awareness, with compassion and acceptance of the beautiful and tragic human condition, personal and collective.  Dance melts and heals our hearts and gives us the courage and possibility to fully be ourselves without apology.

 

Our gathering is at the gateway to the Spring Equinox when the Sun moves into the constellation of Aries for new beginnings (coinciding with a full moon just to add to the heightened energy!). During our evening together we’ll take time to create a body prayer meditation for this celebrated time, to tune into our deepest calling so that our seedling energy and efforts for the year grow from a place of reflected congruence and heartsong.

 

Beginners and seasoned movers all welcome.

Join us and remember why dance has been an intrinsic part of our cultural community expression since time began.

Natural Migraine Relief

MIGRAINE RELIEF 

After many many years of suffering the dreaded M word, I have managed to not only massively reduce the frequency and duration of these migraines I get, but also remedy them when they are in action (the hardest part – once they start they have a life force of their own which is adamant to play its full term out!).

My story:

I think I was around 9 or 10 when I started getting frequent migraines. I had suffered the odd terrible headache and possibly migraine before that, but this was the age I remember they really put their hooks into my life. I relied heavily on painkillers and off course darkened rooms with no noise.

Back then I actually had a diet massively lacking in fresh fruit and vegetables and instead heavily processed foods. I literally never drank water. My main drink supply during childhood was squash, or later on it was sweet soda drinks like coke and irn bru.

My digestion wasn’t so good but I don’t remember much about that and didn’t have chronic symptoms that I remember until my teens when I started to become bloated and have bad acne and hormonal issues.

It has taken this long to find my triggers and do something long term about them (I’m now 42). Medication stopped working for me many years ago, it was hit and miss and I officially binned the painkillers about 3-4 years ago.

What works for me to prevent them:

Lots of water

A diet FULL of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Back neck and should massages

Good sleep

Foods I have reduced massively and are my triggers:

Strawberries

Smoked Salmon (this was the only processed food I was eating)

Fatty Foods/Rich foods/Too many different combination foods

Cooked tomatoes

Red Wine

(These are all foods which are high histamine – research high histamine foods to see which others you might need to avoid or reduce).

What I do when I have a migraine starting:

I use doTERRA CPTG Essential Oils – the purest on the planet: Peppermint and Lavender almost neat around my entire hairline, forehead and back of the neck every hour. Some people also swear by Copaiba and also Frankincense. Also a blend that doTERRA do called Past Tense is also very effective and worth a try. One size does not fit all so its good to experiment and see. Click here to enter my shop, or send me an email to mariaearthbeauty@gmail.com to arrange a 1-2-1 consultation in person or on skype.

Very Cold Coconut Water (2 litres to be drunk within a couple of hours of each other) – you can watch the video below and see why this works.  I came across this accidentally as I found I was CRAVING coconut water and it seems there’s scientific evidence as to why this helps!

Water with 2 drops of CPTG Peppermint Oil

A strong black coffee

ALSO:

There is a link with people that get migraines and not having enough GABA in the diet. Research this and see if this could be you.

Structural issues and more serious issues can also cause migraines (especially new ones out of the blue), so its good to check this out too. I know regular migraines are also a nice preventative for me.

Also, see Dr Michelle Stanton’s Research and finding into Migraines on YouTUBE.

This talks a lot of the importance of electrolyte balance and the hyper excitability of a migraine brain. Interesting.

4th Trimester love reflections

Wow. Just taken back by an old blog on Facebook that I just had to share when Suki turned 3 months!!

With such light we arrive!

The first 3 months of a baby’s life …. are in some traditions referred to as the 4th trimester in pregnancy. In a few days Suki and I will be leaving this delicate and watery realm as she turns 3 months old. I’m still so blissed out at having this sweet human life transcend me into motherhood. And so eternally grateful. Every day I’m in wonderment at her and more in love with her. How blessed we have been. Many people have made a huge difference to me during this 3 month journey. I know I can knock modern healthcare professionals, but the staff at the hospital were mainly amazing. One doctor, Kate, showed such care towards me as I was given a blood transfusion, and countless midwives who took care of me were just awesome. I can’t remember hardly any of their names now because of the other realm I was in at the time! Amy, taking me to hospital, being with me through the journey of Suki arriving and being SUCH a support in countless ways… And since then, so many sweet friends dropping by food, doing washing up for me, giving me massages, generous gifts, being with me and my tears in my washed out tender moments – reminding me of my ok-ness. I have tried to hold strong to keeping this 3 month transit as quiet a time as I can .. and try not to castrate myself when I make mistakes or feel inadequate. In this modern world, I know many women do not give themselves the opportunity to rest and receive after birth and I wish more than anything that new mothers get to experience what I did and have support for their tenderness at hand. Rest woman, rest. Be. Listen. Feel. Open. And know you will never experience anything more touching and precious. I would have plummetted into the cold and dark postnatal depression if it hadn’t been for allowing my vulnerable voice to be heard by close friends and my fairy godmother so that the clenched anxieties, exhausted embodied emotions could be seen and released. And they are still being heard, as I continue this intense, sweet voluptuous road .. and then they are passed into the wind with each sigh. What a delicate and sacred time for a mother and her own inner child …. all the facets of woman show up to dance their stories here … as I tend to the earth beneath Suki and her beginning in this life … <3
