This weeks Regenerative Culture session will be held by Maria Barnicoat and will endeavour to bring us into ACTIVE HOPE through the power of movement and dance, with Joanna Macy’s work “The Work That Reconnects”.
In these times of deepening global crises, many fall prey to denial and despair. This work shows how grief, anger and fear are healthy responses to the harsh realities of our time and that when honoured through this revolutionary work, they can free us from paralysis and move us to creative action.
We offer this work as an intrinsic part of Extinction Rebellion’s call for regenerative culture.
We would like to invite you to join us at THE BRIDGE from 3.00 to 5.00pm to begin this work together.
Location: THE BRIDGE FAMILY CENTRE
There is no charge but donations are welcome.
Feel free to bring snacks / food and drinks to share on the day!
Support Within the Magical Darkness
It’s important to recognize that the Winter can be a very dark time for many of us. We can get stuck in the darkness and we may be unable to see the light or believe that it will come. There are specific essential oils we will use in our FESTIVE WELLBEING CLASS that support our bodies and souls during this time, and inspire hope, courage, groundedness and nourishment through the dream-time darkness of the Winter.
Mid-Winter Mystical Dance
Saturday 21st December, The Bridge Family Centre, St Saviours 7-9.15pm
Wild Earth Dance “Conscious Dance”
This is a dance that cleanses your mind with sweat and breath, laughter and prayer. We let go of conversation, dissolve into movement, drop deep into the body and discover the anatomy of the soul. We will move through personal exploration into a loving, intimate relationship body, mind, heart, and source energy and awaken our imaginations together in a field of connected dreaming. We are powerful creative beings and the dance facilitates in us a liberation of that beautiful power and intent.
This dance will be facilitated by Maria Barnicoat, who first began hosting conscious dance back in 2008 (read my journey here). Cost £15 … or £10 if booked by 1st December
Everyone is welcome!
The dance will be preceded by a shared vegetarian meal from 5-7pm.
Please bring a dish to contribute and huddle amongst like hearted souls for a tasty feast before we move in celebration.

SELF LOVE GATHERING WITH BEAUTIFUL TOOLS TO CREATE EMOTIONAL VIBRANCY and GOOD SELF ESTEEM.
Join us on this powerful Autumn Equinox to immerse into peace and wellbeing. We will be sharing meditation, breathing techniques and essential oil ‘tools’ for you to reconnect with and nurture yourself.
When it comes to our emotions and thoughts, by cultivating care and love for ourselves we can transform the way we think, feel and respond to life pressures and extremes. By cultivating care and love, we build our courage and resilience to life. Our world around us does not actively support this and so we have this opportunity to build these self-love practices into our culture and lives.
In our peaceful and nurturing gathering we will:
* Experience deity meditation, using breathing techniques and essential oils to produce ‘calm’ and ‘grounded’ hormones (brain chemistry).
* Feel almost an immediate DE-STRESSing of our body’s chemistry, and lowering our cortisol level (cortisol being a premature aging stress hormone).
* Understand together how the power of NO is a wonderful self-love tool and how our YES’s have become worthless in our society because of our cultural lack of boundaries.
* Learn about the powerful oils to use when RE-CREATING healthier ways to think with affirmations (creating a healthier ‘brain road map’).
* Learn what we need to generate a good nights SLEEP.
* HOW TO apply and blend the highest quality essential oils in our daily rhythms to support our hormonal fluctuations and emotional extremes.
