Events

Earth Beauty is closed UNTIL MARCH 10th

Because I need some sunshine, because I need some rest, because I need warmth and beautiful scenery, because I want to do some more experiential studies.  It seems that Thailand is offering all the above so I shall be there until the early spring.  Do email me if you need to get in contact as I will be checking regularly.

I’ll miss you all and hope to see you when I get back.

Keep well and nourished this winter.

Opening into Rhythm

jan 2014

“Everything in the universe has rhythm. Everything dances.” – Maya Angelou

One of the most wonderful gifts we can give ourselves this year is to choose to live a life of full expression, heart connection and truth.  Opening ourselves up to rhythm, the rhythm that is always present in ourselves and all of life brings us into a deeper and more fulfilling relationship to ourselves and the world around us. ‘Opening into Rhythm in 2014’ is a Soul Movement Dance Class for everyone.  Our dance space is a sacred place to discover your inner dancer if you’ve not yet met them, and a place to reignite and reconnect again and again to your power and strength.

Soul Movement classes are totally free-form movement /dance classes inspired by music and facilitation from the teacher, allowing our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern ‘for the “grace” or beauty of the dance.  It’s an inner/outer journey of moving meditation, letting your body, heart and soul be your inner guide.  There is much evidence to suggest that dance is an intrinsic part of a healthy community and has been practised since the beginning of time as a way to connect deeper into our potential and the fabric of the magical beings that we are.  New dancers and seasoned dancers from everywhere are invited to join this community.

Maria started these classes after being greatly inspired by Movement Medicine, 5Rhythms and Soul Motion.  Come and see what your inner dancer can offer you.

PLEASE NOTE: This is the last Soul Movement Dance Class to be facilitated by Maria until March!

• Please bring a water bottle, blanket for times of lying stillness and relaxation.
• Dress in easy to move in layers.
• Please arrive through the top entrance in tower road where there is a carpark.
• Cost £10 or £8 for concessions.
• Doors open and music will begin playing at 6:15 for any early arrivals.

Facilitation begins from 6:30pm and is held by Maria.

SisterMoon Full Moon Dance for Women

moondance
The third of a series of 3 special dances in honour of the goddess archetypes in all of us women.  It doesn’t matter if you missed the first two, just don’t miss this last one ♥ With it being so close to the solstice, we will also honour this dark time of year too.
In ancient times, women were acknowledged to be earthly manifestations of the goddess, or the divine feminine.  Women embraced their wild natures, their sensuality and their potential for all encompassing acceptance, and their culture supported …this in them.  In recent ages, this honouring of the feminine has seemed to diminish completely, with a disregard for women and their power and an over emphasis and encouragement of the masculine energy; the goal fixated, doing, faster, faster, more more more, consuming, progressive, active energy.  In these very recent years, we are finally beginning to see that a world without enough feminine: acceptance, being, feeling, creative expression is a world in turmoil and completely out of balance.
We will journey together through the sacred movement of dance to give space and intention to opening up our feminine natures and potential again!
No experience with this kind of dance is necessary.  Come in whatever physical condition you are in. It is facilitated in a beautiful candlelit hall.  Your body and soul will be inspired by music, suggestions, deep states of induced relaxation and a moving connection to your home, your centre.

Soul Movement Sister Moon Full Moon Dance for Women

Moondance_by_WargusEstor

After a very beautiful first women’s only full moon dance earlier this month, here is the second one in a series of three for 2013.

In ancient times, women were acknowledged to be earthly manifestations of the goddess, or the divine feminine.  Women embraced their wild natures, their sensuality and their potential for all encompassing acceptance, and their culture supported this in them.  In recent ages, this honouring of the feminine has seemed to diminish completely, with a disregard for women and their power and an over emphasis and encouragement of the masculine energy; the goal fixated, doing, faster, faster, more more more, consuming, progressive, active energy.  In these very recent years, we are finally beginning to see that a world without enough feminine: acceptance, being, feeling, creative expression is a world in turmoil and completely out of balance.

We will journey together through the sacred feminine movement of dance to give space and intention to opening up our feminine natures and potential again!

No experience with this kind of dance is necessary.  Come in whatever physical condition you are in. It is facilitated in a beautiful candlelit hall.  Your body and soul will be inspired by music, suggestions, deep states of induced relaxation and a moving connection to your home, your centre.

“It begins with a heartbeat, a breath, a quickening. Out of the still, silent waters of the mystic ocean of eternity, a tiny droplet of light slowly emerges, like the full moon reflected on the water. The doors of your perception swing open and your senses reach out like shining beams of moonlight to embrace the infinite rhythms and expressions of creation. As you relax into the expansive beauty of this universal dance, soothing waves of celestial grace surround and caress you in a never-ending stream of warmth and tenderness. Your heart opens as you feel the gentle touch of the Divine Mother, the supreme light and energy of Divinity, nurturing and enlivening the clear luminous flame of your own immortal spirit.” Sharron Rose, Awakening the Divine Feminine.

 

Womens Full Moon Dance

Full Moon

“Once upon a time, in the sacred societies and temples of the ancient world, women were respected and revered as the living embodiment of their divine role model, the Great Goddess. Their bodies were seen as sacred alchemical vessels of creation and transformation, as radiant temples of Divinity filled with the vital healing and transformative current of light and energy that ceaselessly pours outward from the Primordial Source of all life. Deeply in tune with the inner world of spirit and the outer forces of nature, women were known as the Keepers of the Sacred Mysteries.” Sharron Rose

At this magical time of the month, at the full moon, we will join together to dance our truth and dare to reconnect fully with our divine feminine which is so often squashed down in our modern times.  This essence of us is when we are at our most intuitive, at our most creative, at our most loving, nurturing and accepting of all we are.

No experience with this kind of dance is necessary.  Come in whatever physical condition you are in. It is facilitated in a beautiful candlelit hall.  Your body and soul will be inspired by music, suggestions, deep states of induced relaxation and a moving connection to your home, your centre.

Soul Movement Dance Class

Looking forward very much to seeing you all on the dance floor in our lovely hall in First Tower School.

No experience necessary – everyone welcome!!

Soulful Movement

Movement encourages transformation, relaxes the body, frees up stuck energy and stuck energetic patterns and energises the body.  Friday’s dance session was filled with authentic movement and was a fusion of amazing beings finding their feet, kicking out old energy and peeling back the layers of the daily armour to reach the soft rich potential of human nature in its truest and most childlike form.  We had a small childlike being with us with her mother which was a new experience for our group.  I sensed a curiosity in myself in what this would bring to us and after a gentle and seemingly comfortable experience for her and the group, I was left with a calm excitement at the prospect of having more little beings in our space, gifting us with their innocence and openness.  I do ask that if anyone would like to bring a little being that they stay really conscious of our soul movement dance etiquette in respecting the space with no distracting verbal communication and awareness of the other dancers at all time.  Its so good to be back! We’ll be dancing again Friday 11th October.  I hope you can join us!

An Amazing Weekend of Lucid Dreaming!

I’m so happy to have been lucky enough to stumble across Charlie Morley. It has been SUCH a pleasure to have him back over on Jersey soil to teach again. He has a very unique, open approach to teaching and makes learning about lucid dreaming such a fun and exciting experience.

A lucid dream is a dream in which you have an ‘aha’ moment and realise you are dreaming. My lucid dreaming started many years ago. I did not understand their potential back then. Its only since last October, when I first met Charlie, that I learnt I was nestling a true goldmine inside of me all this time!! Anyone can learn to lucid dream and tap into this goldmine. It has the potential to heal us and bring us closer to our true Buddha natures when we tap in to it. It also increases our ability to bring mindful awareness into our lives. We have the ability to work with unresolved issues, past trauma, psychological archetypes and even improve certain life skills in the lucid dream!! It is a creative and sensory indulgent mystic realm of wonder!!! No wonder Charlie, who is a very accomplished Lucid Dreamer, has a refreshing child like essence to him.

Charlie was asked to spread the teachings of Lucid Dreaming by his Buddhist Teachers so that the modern world could learn to use this technique for self-growth, healing and to engage positively with the universal one-ness that resides in all of us, in our unconscious. And night time, we learn, really is the right time to dive into this place where our imaginations can serve us to reach our highest potential. Charlie has a special interest in teaching us how to integrate our shadowy side through Lucid Dreaming and has also spent a lot of time understanding nightmares and what they mean. Charlie has also released 2 CD’s and has a book coming out in September. I can’t wait to listen to the CDs and get the book!!

We had 15 people who came for the ride …. and a few that had been to the last workshop in November also returned for the ‘Going Deeper’ 2nd Day. We were blessed to have ‘The Isis Centre’ as our teaching ground for the weekend and the weather was bright, fresh and springy! Perhaps we will have him back for more in September around his book launch? And maybe a sleepover too?? Watch this space!! See charleymorley300 www.charliemorley.com Charlie has also released 2 CD’s. I can’t wait to listen to the CDs and get the book!!and watch his TED talk too. Great stuff!
