Body Heart & Soul Nourishment

Our gathering is an invaluable immersion into peace and wellbeing after a busy week.

The combination of PRESSURE POINT massage and ESSENTIAL OILS can deeply relax and recalibrate our whole system. You’ll get to experience how to create some inner peace for yourself with simple tools, and release healing endorphins through:

* learning how to give a simple but very effective massage on the hands using reflexology points.

* learning how to use essential oils for maximum serenity and soothing effect

* taking part in a simple mindfulness exercise to halt all cortisone production and return back to a truer version of you.

And then follow it on with having a fabulous weekend in a positive state of mind.

doTERRA is a bit of a buzz word at the moment and it could be easy to underestimate the purity and quality they represent. If you’ve never had the chance to experience or learn a bit more about them, this is a wonderful opportunity!

Hosted by 2 passionate women in the health industry: Maria Barnicoat and Liz Sheehan.

Maria is an Aromatherapist, Massage Therapist and Reflexologist with over 20 years experience in the wellness industry. www.earth-beauty.com

Liz is a Nutritional Therapist, Massage Therapist, Reflexologist and soon to be qualified Naturopath.

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

Passionate Raw Chocolate Lovers Unite

Yay we’re BACK!

The heat was ON tonight and I could see the crew of all girls were open and ready for their rich chocolatey experience.

With some wonderful fairy sidekicks, Nikki G, Ashley J and Terry C …. I was feeling blessed and excited about our evening.

We kicked off with a chat and then a demo into how to make a simple non tempered chocolate. I dived into the doTERRA oils and picked out some lime and then added some himalayan salt and chilli powder. The result was SO right and the air got thick with anticipation! Then the girls were OFF … each creating magnificent concoctions with their chocolates and combinations I’d never tried such as Grapefruit and Cardamon …. ooohhhh!!!!

And then their confidence grew and our next round, making truffles was such fun!

My biggest surprise and euphoria of the night was just how purely magnificent and completely unrivalled are the doTERRA oils for use as flavourings in chocolate. BLOWN away by the clarity and depth of flavour they lend in food. Having Nikki G around as our doTERRA expert made the night even more exciting and I’m really looking forward to more of our collaborations.

Seeing fulfilled smiles on their faces as they clutched their bags and boxes full of bunnies and eggs told me my work was done.

 

Kali-Ma Chocolate Rebirthing

Its been a fun and intense journey (as it can only be with Kali-Ma the dark goddess) resurrecting my chocolate baby for the world to come and delight at again.

This time around I’ve gone for a bit of a revamp! Vamp being the word as the boxes are a sexy burgundy and lots of gold trimmings on the boxes and bags too.  The boxes will contain some VERY decadent raw chocolate vegan truffles. Its about time our little island had some real bespoke raw chocolates to be eaten and savoured.  Finally. I’m a little exhausted though.  I now have a beautiful girl and a lot less time than before so its all been a bit of a whirlwind.  Interspersed with lots of Yoga Nidras and a few good friends coming to hang out with my girl, I’ve actually managed to get something done other than playing playdough and dancing around the living room with Suki chanting GOBINDAY MUKANDAY.

Not only am I a bit excited about selling my chocolates this weekend at Simply Spring, I’m also releasing an Organic Lip Butter which is just too mmmm for words.  Seriously.  Come and try my chocs and lips butter, I’ll have samples out for you all.

Chocolate Love and Kali Ma Light to you all xxx

 

The early days of Mummadom

This little being had me deep in love and overwhelm from the word go.

With her large brown all seeing eyes, I was sure she could read all my thoughts and emotions. I felt very in love and very blessed to become the unplanned and unexpected mother I’d become. Transitioning into the mumma realm wasn’t without its harsh initiations though. I immediately developed an acute sense of both our vulnerabilities, to the point that it could almost debilitate me with fears of freakish accidents and a new excrutiating empathy for all mothers and their vulnerable young.  We had a few friends stay and help out a little in the early weeks and months as I longed for more support and to feel like there was a greater nucleus that we could turn to but our modern day disease of disconnection to each other reigned in on us and many times I felt bereft and exhausted in body and mind. We were blessed with material needs and gifts of more than we needed, but I learnt early that a mummas job should never belong to just the mumma.  And my heart went out to all the single mothers out there doing their best in the most unnatural situation of being on their own in a world of so many.

Life as a Mumma – The first day

 

I think we’d met about 2 hours before this picture was taken.  It was a clear and beautiful November day. The most exhilarating day of my life.  The high was mind blowing.  The midwives were amazing.  Especially sweet Rachel who was with us for our first day.  She really helped encourage me to get the right position for breastfeeding.  I definitely didn’t feel like I remotely had the knack but she was super positive for me.

Nothing can prepare you for that intense love and bonding that happens that first day.

I stayed in a few days.  Unfortunately I’d lost a lot of blood and I needed a transfusion to get me strong again.  Best decision I made doing that and such a supportive team of doctors and midwives. I had an incredible birthing partner who, without her, I can’t imagine the ease, comfort and flow happening as beautifully and supported as it did with the whole birthing journey.

I moved home and began my new life with my new beautiful daughter in my home in Gorey.

Nothing else prepared me for the intense vulnerability I was now faced with in my new role.  Feeling quite inadequately equipped in the mother and care taking role, I just had to jump right in and follow my instincts. It took me a very long time to actually accept what had just happened to me.  The Mother transformation was the biggest and most opening process I have ever been through.

The time has come to close the doors to Earth Beauty after over 10 years of being open for wellness and natural beauty so that I can devote all my energy to being a new mama.

I’m so thankful to Janice, my mother, for having such a gorgeous and centrally located space to practice in for all these years and so thankful to all of you wonderful people who came to see me at one time or another.  Everyone loved the tranquil feeling in this space despite being in such a busy part of town.  Some of you I journeyed with deep and for long times, others, it was short but equally as deep, and others flew in and out like butterflies in the breeze. Everyone has shown me and taught me something valuable to integrate and take away to this next part of my life.

The beautiful studio that I use is awaiting fresh energy to take over and the rent is very reasonable!  Days available are: Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. If you are interested and would like to see the space, please call Janice on 07797826957 or 601925.
