Women Who Rise and Flow

A feast for the spirit of all women of all ages. A time to come together and dance, sing and share from our hearts.

 

More than ever our world needs empowered re-wilded women.

 

Empowered women are:

Women who are creating connection within themselves and their environment

Women who are allowing their creativity to flow

Women who are healing the bonds with other women

Women who are trusting the wisdom in their bodies

Women who are bold and courageous

 

Dance – Sing – Share – Remember

 

Dance –

We will begin with a journey into our bodies through movement and sound, with meditations and chants to open up our hearts.  Facilitated by Maria of Wild Earth Dance Jersey, this is a free-form movement /dance that allows our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern ‘for the “grace” or beauty of the dance.  It’s an exhilarating inner/outer journey of moving meditation and develops a direct body-mind-spirit connection, letting your body and inner guide be your teachers and healers.

Sing –

Yes we will sing! You will be taught different parts by ear by Kate Valentine, (no word or music sheets are needed) and you choose the one you like or feels most comfortable for your voice. The magic begins as we put the parts together. You’ll be amazed at the power and sheer beauty of hearing your individual parts sung together in harmony.

The Power in the Chakras

 

Are you ready to work deep into the past, present and future to claim the power you have lacked through limiting beliefs, trauma, cultural conditioning and/or a lack of knowledge or application? Are you ready to use the wisdom you already have in your body to guide you with loving presence and direction to increased wellbeing and transformation?

 

🌈 This is an 8 module journey into the powerhouse centres within our bodies starting in February until the end of March. If you cannot attend the whole journey, it is possible to book individual sessions.

🌈 Our chakras connect to our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. We can claim back any lost power with enquiry, reflection, acknowledgment, compassion, and by trusting ourselves to be our own healers with the support of the strong sacred space container in which we will move in.

🌈 What can you expect? We will work with music, movement, toning, trance meditations, essential oils, and with each other as compassionate comrades to restore balance and wholeness into ourselves. This is an exhilarating and liberating journey but also one that works on a profound level in our wellbeing and psyche, and that has a strong emphasis on movement.

🌈 Everyone is welcome. Whether you are seasoned in the path of empowerment through movement, or whether you are completely new, you are welcome to join us. If you joined for a past journey, this will be unique, with new exercises, modalities and meditations, giving you the opportunity to immerse in different material and layers that arise.

Acknowledging the past and our ancestral lineage. What belief patterns did you inherit from your family? What traumas did they endure? Which of those belief systems do you acknowledge are no longer serving you? Do you have unfinished business with your family? What blessings came from your family? Shining the light on the frozen grief and energy which is hindering your sense of ground and belonging and connection to mother earth.

🔥 Sat 8th February: 18.30 til 21.00 – 2nd Chakra “HONOR ONE ANOTHER” Svadisthana/Passion/Creativity/ Fire: The Sacral Chakra. A journey into our need for relationships and our sense of power, money and survival in our physical environment. How often do you direct your creative energies into negative paths of expression? Are you comfortable with your sexuality? Do you keep your word? Are you a controlling person? Shining the light on the frozen grief and energy which is hindering your sense of relating and abundance.

🔥 Sun 16th February: 18.30 til 21.00 – 3rd Chakra “HONOR ONESELF” Manipura/Confidence/Personal Power/ Fire: The Solar Plexus Chakra. A journey into our sense of self-esteem, self-confidence and self-respect. Do you like yourself? If not what don’t you like and why? Are you actively working to change the things you don’t like? Are you critical of others? Do you need the approval of others? Are you continually wishing your life was different?

🔥 Sun 1st March: 18.30 til 21.00 – 4th Chakra “LOVE IS DIVINE POWER” – Anahata/Compassion/Acceptance/Air: The Heart Chakra. A journey into our ability to let go, our ability to forgive and feel inner peace. What emotional memories do you still need to heal? Do you allow yourself to be controlled by the wounds of another person? What steps have you taken or will you take to prevent that from happening again?  Do you associate emotional health with no longer needing an intimate relationship? What have you done that needs forgiving? Who do you have to forgive?

What is your definition of being strong willed? Who has control over your willpower and why? Are you able to sense when you are receiving guidance to act upon? What fears do you have associated with divine guidance? Do you trust guidance that has no proof of outcome?

🔥 Sun 15th March: 18.30 til 21.00 – 6th Chakra “SEEK ONLY THE TRUTH – The Power of the Mind ” – Ajna/Intuition/Foresight/ Ether: The Third Eye Chakra. A journey into our mental body, our sense of symbolic sight and psychological characteristics. Are you judgmental? What people or situations bring that out in you? What attitudes do you have that disempower you? What beliefs do you have that cause you to interpret the actions of others in a negative way?

🔥 Sun 22nd March: 18.30 til 21.00 – 7th Chakra “LIVE IN THE PRESENT MOMENT – Transcendence” Sahasrara/Unity/Divine Intelligence/ Ether: The Crown Chakra. A journey into our connection to life force energy, inspirational and prophetic thoughts, transcendent ideas and mystical connections.  What spiritual truths are you aware of that you do not live by? Are you devoted to a spiritual path?  What prevents you from continuing desired spiritual practices? Are you afraid of a closer spiritual connection to the divine because of the changes it might trigger in your life?

🔥 Sun 29th March: 18.30 til 21.00 – Ceremony/Integration and Witness. A celebration of all we are, an embodied integration of all the modules and chakras with an invocation of protection and affirmation of our intentions. This is given as a practice that can be followed daily to strengthen the spirit and live an authentic life that matters to us and those around us.

Influenced with gratitude by wonderful mystics and teachers such as Caroline Myss, Toko-Pa Turner, Ram Dass, Gabrielle Roth and Joanna Macy.  I am honoured to be your guide on this journey. If you cannot attend the whole journey, it is possible to book individual sessions.

Regenerative Culture- Active Hope

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!

Mid-Winter Mystical Dance

 

Mid-Winter Mystical Dance 

Booking ended

 

Saturday 21st December, The Bridge Family Centre, St Saviours  7-9.15pm

Gather together with like minded hearts and souls with powerful presence, intent and celebration for this special time of year.
 
In Latin, solstice (mid winter) means ‘sun set still’ and Winter Solstice is the great stillness before the Sun’s strength builds, and days grow longer.
 
We will begin with an optional shared feast at 5pm and then at 7pm we will dance consciously into the fruitful dark out of which new life can eventually emerge. Everything lies dormant in the silent night, a sacred time of rest before the awakening, and the slow build toward longer days. We will also move in celebration for the sun that starts a new cycle at winter solstice and acknowledge the suns rays shining into the dark and nurturing the new life there to be cultivated.
 
This is an offering for life, and also an acknowledgment of the work of Extinction Rebellion Jersey, to gather and celebrate this potent dreaming time and the nourishing movement we have growing in strength here in Jersey.

 

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).

 

Everyone is welcome!

COST: BY DONATION on the NIGHT

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.

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.

Soul Movement – Uncovering Joy

What obscures us from experiencing the JOY of LIFE?

It is possible to experience so much joy if we are free from the tensions that cloud this natural state of being. Our witnessing and care transforms stuckness into sweet flow and into the direction of being able to celebrate the blossoming of life, which is so prominent in our flourishing spring environment right now. Come and be guided on a sweet soul nourishing journey.

What is Soul Movement?

* Created in 2008, under the original name of Bare Feet Ecstatic Dance by Maria, Soul Movement is an exhilarating and nurturing mind, body and spirit dance and movement journey, taking us into the core of our hearts and innate creativity. It helps to release stuck patterns in our mind, body and spirit and we are left pulsating with life and more empowered to live from a place of truth and soul integrity, where spontaneity resides. It is inspired by beautiful music and held in a sweet and gentle dimly lit space with the aim of dropping deeply into our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern ‘for the “grace” or beauty of the dance. It is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation which develops a direct body-mind-spirit connection, letting your body and inner guide be your teachers and healers.

When: Friday 18th May
Where: The Bridge Family Centre. Take a sharp right into the old St Marks School site at the bottom of St Saviours Hill.
Bring: Water and blanket
Wear: Layers and comfy clothes to move freely in.
Cost: £12 or call me for concessionary rates if needed.
Contact: Maria on 07797832400 or email mariaearthbeauty@gmail.com

Maria has been in the health and wellbeing industry since leaving school and has been holding meditation and inner journey healing spaces for over 10 years. She is passionate about helping to resource others to be empowered, happier, healthier, with the freedom to live with authenticity and simplicity.

Please arrive 10 mins early.
