As the celebration of ‘Imbolc’ is upon us, we come together consciously in honour of the new seeds of awakening that are stirring inside of our cells.
.
Many of us set resolutions or goals during the new year, but Imbolc is also a great time for goal setting and thinking about personal development that wed like to see throughout the year.
.
This is also a great time for planning and creating ideas to help your enterprise grow. If youve been thinking about reinventing yourself, trying something new or coming up with new ideas, now is the time.
.
During our time together, a chakra awakening practice will be guided through song, meditation and ecstatic dance, with the beautiful aid of ceremonial cacao to align our intentions with our hearts (the central chakra and bridge between the ground and the ether chakras). The process creates an alchemy within our heart, minds and bodies and helps to expand us where we have contracted. We become less in our left brain and more open to our creative/dreaming side.
.
There will also be time to create vision boards to bring into the earthly plane texture and clarity to all our desires and intentions before we will end our time together with delicious soup and cake (vegan and gluten free).

Alexander Lee-Briard, Maria and friends will offer live music, creative vibes and song for the journey.
.
All materials will be supplied but if you have anything creative you’d like to use please bring it too.
.
Bring: Water, Blanket and a Cushion
Cost: 瞿39. Contact me directly if cost is an issue.
Venue: St Mary’s Barnloft is at the back of St Mary’s Vicarage. Across the road from St Mary’s School and has its own carpark. To access the space you need to come through a gate and walk up some metal stairs to the loft space.

Chakra Love Alchemy – 8 Week Immersion


 

What is Chakra Love Alchemy?

An 8 week intensive dance-sing-prayerful-movement immersion into the mysterious spiral fabric of your body and psyche.

Influenced by wonderful mystics and teachers such as Caroline Myss, Toko-Pa Turner, Ram Dass, Reginald Ray, Gabrielle Roth and Joanna Macy. You are invited to be part of a core group working deep with the past, present and future to claim the power you have lost on life’s journey.

Starting in April 2022, if you cannot attend the whole journey, it is also possible to book individual sessions.

Our chakras connect strongly with our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. They are healthy when we are empowered and energised through life experience, initiations and environmental factors. They are weakened through personal trauma, ancestral trauma, illness and stagnation physically, emotionally and spiritually.

We can claim back lost energy in them with enquiry, reflection, witness and embodied movement; acknowledging our interconnectedness and with that, our intrinsic need to attend to our wounds – becoming our own sovereign healers.

What can you expect? We will work through the heart rendering and powerful medicine of ceremonial cacao with self enquiry, movement, mantra, meditations, kundalini yoga and with each other as compassionate comrades to restore balance and wholeness into ourselves within each theme of each chakra. This is a full-bodied exhilarating and liberating journey but also one that works on a profound level in our wellbeing and psyche.

Everyone is welcome. Whether you are seasoned in personal growth through chakra work, or whether you are completely new, you are welcome to join us. If you joined for a past chakra journey, this will be unique, with new exercises, modalities and meditations.

WHAT ARE YOU INTERESTED IN?


Full Moon Cacao Ceremony

 

(Please note if the weather is good we will be holding this in a north easterly outdoor location to be confirmed 24 hours before our event)

Dear friends
You are invited to join us for a rich ceremonial journey with the sacred plant medicine, cacao.

Cacao adapts to the needs of each person and helps them to connect and feel openness in their heart. She offers a deep journey of healing our pathway to love and brings immense clarity of mind and profound insights.

She is said to reveal patterns, cultivate self-love, increase consciousness and support us in our path and personal growth.

In Western culture were not used to see plants as sacred, work with their spirit or allocate them certain powers. There is a lot we can learn from plants and knowledge from native culture. We are blessed that cacao is now being used as a medicine for connection and restoring our true humanity in the west.

What to expect?

We will begin within 10 minutes of arrival time (please arrive at 6:15 to have plenty of time to settle) and we will officially open and set our sacred container. The middle part of the ceremony is a shared group experience with cacao and a guided ecstatic dance body-prayer. We will end with a closing where we give thanks, and acknowledge what the group created during our time.

What to bring?

Please bring many warm layers. Especially if we will be outside, the temperature drops a lot once the sun goes down. Also bring a blanket and water and some food to share at the end of the journey. Bring a camp chair if you do not wish to sit on the ground.

How to prepare?

It is really helpful for the ceremony if you lightly fast during the day and avoid alcohol, caffeine, meats and dairy for 24 hours before.

Outside venue

If the weather is good the ceremony will be held in an outdoor location on the North East of the island. All participants will be notified 24 hours in advance if this is the case.

Precautions

Its best to consult your physician before booking a ticket if you are : Taking Antidepressants, taking hypertension medication, if you are Pregnant (it is likely still safe to consume ceremonial cacao but at lower doses) and if you have a heart condition.

Midsummer Alchemy

 

Join us for a playful, prayerful, feast of a celebration for this Summer Solstice on the beautiful grounds of Reg’s Garden.

An alcohol free event – this promises to be a solar treat for the heart and soul! With a gorgeous official opening of our sacred space, a deep guided body prayer by Maria, some beautiful live music and drumming from the Balaphones (Maz, Jim and Anita), locally made/foraged delicious drinks and food for everyone attending, and a sharing of sacred ayurvedic wisdom for the summer by Tina Foran.

Summer is brewing! After we’ve all landed together with a focus on opening our sacred space, we will ignite and feed our innate longing for re-connection through conscious, guided movement into the body with Maria. Conscious body-prayer dancing in community gives us an other-worldly medicinal portal to melt and heal our hearts, and offers us the courage and possibility to emerge from ourselves, a clearer version of ourselves, fresh from the intention and exhilaration of the movement.

Our lovely Tina will share with us how our inner alchemy can work best for us this Summer. Fire is light, heating and transformative. Keeping our cool is a great medicine with Ayurveda. Tina is a qualified medical Ayurvedic Practitioner and she specialises in the promotion of selfcare for health and well-being. You can find her at https://ayurvedicriver.com/

At the end of our time, we will sit and eat together on the ground (bring savoury food for feast after – we will supply drinks and sweet locally made treats!)

Wear: comfy layers

Cost: 瞿15 earlybird price before 6th June and 瞿20 thereafter.

Earth Care – A Sacred Act of Worship

Our contribution towards the care-taking of this planet is KEY for a strong sense of spiritual fulfilment in this lifetime.

Join us for a powerfully moving journey, to reconnect with and anchor back into your love for the earth, and your unique and sacred part in the creating of an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling & socially just presence on Earth.

This multi-textured, emotive and creative experience is held and facilitated through an investigation into the following important questions:

What was the unconscious collective mindset that got us to this crisis point in evolution?

What role does spirituality have in transforming our world?

How we can exist in a web of like-minded individuals to be the change we want to see in our world today?

What is our personal, authentic and innate gift to contribute to our world during this time of upheaval and great change? Where do our passions meet what the world most needs?

How can we use the power of our imaginations and our creativity in our visions of tomorrow?

We have almost no time left to act as protectors of life on Earth and to pull together to hold a ground of consciousness, resilience and wellbeing.

We need to move while we can, before we experience a collapse into free fall, where conducive spaces to share and organise are replaced by the shock of societies becoming more chaotic and dismembered as our life support systems die.

WHERE AND WHEN:

This experience will be held in and around the grounds of St Mary’s Church Barn Loft on Sunday 6th September.

Please arrive at 10:15 for a 10:30 start. to finish at 14:30. There is plenty of parking.

BOOKING:
Booking is ESSENTIAL due to Covid Regulations with the number of people who can attend.

COST:
The day is free/by donation but there is a nominal 瞿5 registration fee to help us cover the costs of advertising and organising which is payable through the booking link.

A blanket, a notebook/journal
An object that connects you to your love for the Earth in some way.

Chakra Wave in Ecstatic Movement – Online Intensive

CHAKRA WAVE in ECSTATIC DANCE/MOVEMENT

This multi layered mind, body, spirit movement journey will take us through the 7 major chakra centres and 7 corresponding spiritual life lessons week by week.

 

By bringing these parts of our bodies into conscious movement, with delicious music and enticing invitations, we are able to dive deep within to release stuck and stagnant energy and stories that we have inherited and created within our bodies throughout our life journey. Ecstatic dance combined with meditations and mantras encourages a deep awakening and transformation within the body.

 

Each Chakra and connecting body parts offer us the potential for transformation within 7 Sacred Spiritual Life Lessons:

 

SUNDAY 24th May 11.00am

1st Chakra “ALL IS ONE” Muladhara/Grounding/Belonging/ Earth: The Root Chakra. A portal back to where we came from. 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 potential to transform your sense of ground, security, belonging and connection to mother earth, mother, tribe and birth.

 

SUNDAY 31st May – 11.00am

2nd Chakra “HONOR ONE ANOTHER” Svadisthana/Passion/Creativity/ Fire: The Sacral Chakra. A portal 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? SShining the light on the potential to transform your sense of relating and abundance.

 

SUNDAY 7th June – 11.00am

3rd Chakra “HONOR ONESELF” Manipura/Confidence/Personal Power/ Fire: The Solar Plexus Chakra. A portal 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? Shining the light on the potential to transform your sense of relating to yourself and your identity with ease and grace.

 

SUNDAY 14th June – 11.00am

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? Shining the light on the potential to transform your sense of love, forgiveness, acceptance and compassion.

 

SUNDAY 28th June – 11.00am

5th Chakra “SURRENDER TO DIVINE WILL” – Vishuddha/Deliverance/Authenticity/ Ether: The Throat Chakra. A journey through the maturation of the willpower to true inner authority. 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? Shining the light on the potential to align your path and choices with divine will.

 

SUNDAY 5th July – 11.00am

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? Shining the light on the potential to transform your sense of truth and beliefs.

 

SUNDAY 12th July – 11.00am

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? Shining the light on the potential to transform your sense of spirituality.

Some Reviews From the Recent Sunday Morning ‘Grounding in Connection’ Online Ecstatic Dance Gatherings and Past Wild Earth Dance Gatherings

 

It is always lovely to fall into the open soft space with Maria”

T Foran

“I feel so ‘cleared out’ – almost like a new person, inside! I felt like we had all been given a gift by you.”
Eleanor O’Callaghan-Mazidian

“Amazing, Amazing …. “
Kinga Gutsowksa

“… such a magical group.”
Joseph David Bras

“I was touched by your presence and by the gentle but powerful container that you held us in … the naturalness with which you held yourself and shared that love and humour with us..”
Cath Brown

“Beautifully held space, great choice of music and wonderful ending meditations. These online dances provide a great opportunity to go deeper into your own dance, without the distraction of others, which has been interesting to explore.”
J Jones

“A lovely introduction to meditative dance!”
J Forrest

“HI Maria, just want to say how much I enjoyed and benefited from the on line wild dance events. I am really looking forward to joining the next series. I was a little unsure whether online would work for me, but found that I felt really well connected throughout to all the friendly people who joined in. The choice of music and the “company” of yourself and my fellow dancers all added up to a special experience.”
G Louis

“I was surprised how I felt so much better in myself after the online dance gathering ….”
J Liffey

“During these times especially it feels good to be connected to our dance community … I felt our space very well held by your gentle guidance … It was much easier to link up and have a sense of connection on Zoom than I thought it would be.”

M Heaney

 

SOME QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE:

1/ Will this involve me dancing?

Yes, but its not the kind of dancing where you will be focussing on looking good nor entertaining. Ecstatic dance is a mindful deep guided journey into the body, with continual invitations and reminders from me where your focus should be – which is in the body, and just being witness to the voices and stories that are playing out in the mind without attaching to them, so that you can let your body move with your authenticity, moment by moment. Its a great meditation practice and one that many find easier than stillness meditation. Its no surprise that dance has been a practice of all indigenous cultures through the ages to connect them to their bodies and spirits. Once you’ve tried this a few times, it becomes more and more easy to drop into the body, and for some it is instantaneous.

2/ I’m physically impaired and can’t move about/can’t move for long. Can I still join?

Absolutely. You can be just as present and able to journey deeply into the body whilst sitting in a chair, moving your arms, fingers, head, neck, feet … whatever or wherever it is that you have some movement. The sessions have been created to aid the dropping in journey with special music, drums, sound and mantras. Everyone can come to this and get something very wholesome out of it.

3/ I wouldn’t be able to stay for the whole session, is that ok?

Your presence in this process really makes a difference. Especially as we are tuning in to each other online. Leaving early would not only diminish your experience of the journey, but it would also impact the sense of presence in the zoom room, so I ask that all participants can stay from the beginning to the end to support the process for everyone.

Chakra Wave – Uniting Wellbeing

CHAKRA WAVE in ECSTATIC MOVEMENT

This multi layered and colourful mind, body, spirit movement journey will take us through the 7 major chakra centres of our bodies.

By bringing these parts of our bodies into conscious movement, with delicious music and enticing invitations, we are able to dive deep within to release stuck and stagnant energy and stories that we have inherited and created within our bodies throughout our life journey.

This is not a theoretical enquiry but a deep somatic full body journey.

Once we move and open up to softening and releasing, each Chakra and connecting body parts offer us the potential for transformation in the following realms:

1st Chakra “ALL IS ONE” Muladhara/Grounding/Belonging/ Earth: The Root Chakra. A portal back to where we came from. 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, mother, tribe and birth.

2nd Chakra “HONOR ONE ANOTHER” Svadisthana/Passion/Creativity/ Fire: The Sacral Chakra. A portal 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.

3rd Chakra “HONOR ONESELF” Manipura/Confidence/Personal Power/ Fire: The Solar Plexus Chakra. A portal 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? Shining the light on the frozen grief and energy which is hindering your sense of relating to yourself with ease and grace.

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? Shining the light on the frozen grief and energy which is hindering your sense of love, forgiveness and compassion.

5th Chakra “SURRENDER TO DIVINE WILL” – Vishuddha/Deliverance/Authenticity/ Ether: The Throat Chakra. A journey through the maturation of the willpower to true inner authority. 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? Shining the light on the frozen grief and energy which is hindering your sense of aligning your path and choices with divine will.

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? Shining the light on the frozen grief and energy which are hindering your sense of truth and beliefs.

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? Shining the light on the frozen grief and energy which is hindering your sense of spirituality.
