Nurturing Our Divine Feminine

bonniesmallWe have planned a beautiful day, just for us women, journeying and diving into the healing depths of Restorative Yoga, Sound Practices and Soul Movement to really connect with and nurture our long neglected inner divine feminine natures.

The day will be facilitated by Julie Kent​ and Maria Barnicoat​. 

Maria has been holding sacred spaces through SOUL Movement Jersey​ classes, Womens Full Moon Dances, and her own individual one on one individual therapeutic work that she offers through Earth Beauty​.

Julie has been teaching many different styles of yoga for the past 9 years.  She incorporates the science of Yoga and Chakra Yoga and specialises in assisting people to heal from dis-ease.

Each of them have a strong commitment to healing, nurturing and expressing their own femininity, and to offering that out to the world for the benefit of others.

“The repression of the feminine has led to a planet on the edge of collapse.  The re-emergence is going to be a dance to behold.” Claire Dakin

Cost: £65

Food Intolerance Testing on the Rise!

It seems that we are getting wiser.  Although its unlikely if you go into a doctors surgery complaining of chronic digestive issues, energy lapses, headaches and skin issues, that they will advise you seek out a specialist who tests food intolerances, current statistics say that over 45% of our population have become intolerant to one or more foods in their diets! To this day doctors still do not offer tests for ‘intolerances’ which is a different reaction to the classic acute, sometimes life threatening ‘allergy’ reaction.

Poor gut health, low immunity, stress, environmental toxins and certain allopathic medicines have been taking their toll on our ability to properly digest and assimilate food for years now.

I use the Food Detective Test – the test I believe to be the most accurate on the market in diagnosing food intolerances.  Just a 10minute appointment for a pin prick of blood is needed and in 45 mins I can call you with results that include 46 foods tested.

Its the first step I recommend in bringing the pendulum back to balance for our health and wellbeing!  With me at Earth Beauty you have the choice to upgrade this service to include a 3 month plan plus a set of life coaching sessions to really transform your life and achieve your goals.

 

The cost of the Food Detective Food Intolerance Test is £70.

If you are suffering from one or more of the below, choose to take a food intolerance test today and I’d be happy to help you with your pathway back to feeling good again.

Chronic fatigue

Strong food cravings

Irritable bowel (including bloating, diarrhoea or constipation)

Depression

Hyperactivity and bedwetting in children

Rhinitis Eczema/psoriasis,

Moving into a New Rite of Passage for the Feminine

wildwoman

This feels by far like my greatest rite of passage yet.  The journey to motherhood! Pregnancy! An exhilarating, intensely vulnerable roller-coaster gestation period where I have found strength and incredible support from my soul sisters around me.  The world will never be the same and sometimes I am just overwhelmed by this blessing of life.  I must be ready! But some days I am kicking and screaming as I wrestle with my inner pixie who just doesn’t want to grow up and claim her full power and responsibility as a woman.  38 years of only taking care of myself, and a few furry friends along the way have created and affirmed a selfishness of my life and all my own childhood nuances and fears leaping out of the cupboard to taunt me and tell me of the shadows of childhood/motherhood.  Supportive, warm beings whispering in my ears of what a wonderful mother I will be only slightly lessens the fear of the harm that could come from projecting my crap onto this divine little being.  I feeling the heightened sensitivity to all noises, smells, our patriarchal focused world … and again I dive into the deep dark reflective well that I know so dear, craving for a matriarchal, flourishing community of life around me.  How can I bring this little being authentically into a world that I know is madness? There is nothing like this before that has shown me that now is the time to carve out the dreams that have been lingering in my heart, now is the time to plant the seeds to really create a future living integrally and in tune with nature and the ancient wise ways! Such a blessing to receive this gift!! I already feel the mama energy in me and wow … its quite incredible!

Dancing with the archetype ‘The Fool’

the foolOn ‘All Fools Day’ we are joining together for our monthly Soul Movement class to connect with and embody the archetypal energy of ‘The Fool’ within ourselves.

Known in the traditional tarot deck, the Fool represent unlimited potential in us all. He trusts blindly that he has all the tools and resources he needs for every possible encounter.  His guardian, his dog is his protector and encourages him into learning the lessons he came here to learn. He is on a lifelong journey to fully express his wild and free spirit.

When we are feeling the positive energy in us, we are trusting and embracing of new beginnings.  He dares to take leaps of faith to take him into higher areas of personal growth and new adventures. He lives free of worry and anxiety of what is ahead.

Within the sacred dancespace of Soul Movement we will journey and experience our inner Fool, through movement, visualisations and intentions. This is a potent space to reconnect to the innate trust in life that we came here to the earth with.

Bring: water, blanket and wear comfy layers.

Everyone is invited, the evening is facilitated clearly and newbies are very welcome as you don’t need any experience.

Cost £10 or contact Maria for reductions.

Come early, at 6:30 and join our FREE 30mins of Tai Chi and Chi Gung with Yuri Leitch!!

Dancing with Intimacy

intiate handsAs I reflect over the awesomeness that was this weekend, I want to thank again all of you gorgeous dancing warriors that joined us for the journey … and that includes the amazing Friday night-ers that came just for one night. I am in so much gratitude for the depth of sharing and heart connections that occurred and were formed over the weekend.

Dancing brings up stuff, some bitter, some sweet, it bring us together, it brings us into our power, it brings us into our vulnerability and it brings us into our joy, truth and our true potential.  When you combine that with a facilitator who carries with him his own gifts and intentions of breaking down barriers in humankind, you get an extremely heart warming and healing time for anyone there.

Tim Broughton created a very safe and loving space for us all this weekend, using exercise structures, the 5Rhythms, and our sacred dance space to bring us more into our hearts, truth and vulnerability.  Our theme ‘Intimacy, Innocence and Connection’ had even made a few of our long-term ‘Soul Movement’ dancers feel the pangs of resistance in coming to this weekend but many just chose to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’.  Its scary to be open, showing our tenderness and vulnerability but wow does the world need it right now! Most people I meet are aching to feel at home in themselves again and aching to feel better connected to those around them. If we just do nothing about it, then nothing happens and we remain aching and longing, but this weekend really showed us that our power lies in our hearts … and to hear our hearts we need to let go of those conflicting thoughts and beliefs and make a few courageous innocent moves in the direction of what we want in our life and how we want to live.  Thank you Tim and everyone for being a part of something that has recharged me, given me new tools and left me excited about how I can saturate these important qualities into my life.

Maria xx
