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.
A Jersey in Transition Presentation by Maria Barnicoat
Erich and Barbara, the pioneers of Autarca Permaculture Project in La Palma, Canary Islands are true lovers of life. They have travelled far and learnt that you cannot destroy one part of nature without another being in consequence. They truly live by and embody daily the understanding that ALL IS CONNECTED. Their mission in their project is to re-educate and to help awaken us from our apathy. Their life’s journey has led them to creating an outstanding home and blossoming testament to nature.
After being there this May 2015, I knew I had to share their gift. and what exactly they do there. Join me, a true permaculture virgin, for a presentation on a place that blew my mind and gave me more hope and passion for our planet. A place that I shall return back to next spring with a crew of excited LIFE enthusiasts to learn their wisdom and expand their work more into the world.
Be inspired, not overwhelmed, by the small changes you can create to make a difference with the smallest plot of land. Learn about an immersion they teach that will give you all the tools to create your own project!
In the true, giving style of ‘Jersey in Transition’ this evening is FREE.
If you want to find out more about the good work of Jersey in Transition, Nigel Jones shall be there an on hand to answer any questions or help you enrol as a member.
Where: The Townhouse Pub, Upstairs, St Helier, Jersey
We have planned a beautiful day, just for us women, journeying and diving into the healing depths of Restorative Yoga, Sound Practices and Soul Movement to really connect with and nurture our long neglected inner divine feminine natures.
The day will be facilitated by Julie Kent and Maria Barnicoat.
Maria has been holding sacred spaces through SOUL Movement Jersey classes, Womens Full Moon Dances, and her own individual one on one individual therapeutic work that she offers through Earth Beauty.
Julie has been teaching many different styles of yoga for the past 9 years. She incorporates the science of Yoga and Chakra Yoga and specialises in assisting people to heal from dis-ease.
Each of them have a strong commitment to healing, nurturing and expressing their own femininity, and to offering that out to the world for the benefit of others.
“The repression of the feminine has led to a planet on the edge of collapse. The re-emergence is going to be a dance to behold.” Claire Dakin

Known in the traditional tarot deck, the Fool represent unlimited potential in us all. He trusts blindly that he has all the tools and resources he needs for every possible encounter. His guardian, his dog is his protector and encourages him into learning the lessons he came here to learn. He is on a lifelong journey to fully express his wild and free spirit.
When we are feeling the positive energy in us, we are trusting and embracing of new beginnings. He dares to take leaps of faith to take him into higher areas of personal growth and new adventures. He lives free of worry and anxiety of what is ahead.
Within the sacred dancespace of Soul Movement we will journey and experience our inner Fool, through movement, visualisations and intentions. This is a potent space to reconnect to the innate trust in life that we came here to the earth with.
Bring: water, blanket and wear comfy layers.

Inspired by Little Grandmother Kiesha and her fabulous message and practical steps we can all take to heal our very own Mother Earth……..this is the first Crystal Ceremony of 12 (12 Parishes, 12 or more crystals, 12 Full Moon’s), taking place in Jersey, this first one being held on the Full Moon 13th June, 7pm.
I will be bringing my children, anyone’s children more than welcome. If you are interested in joining me on this journey to assist in healing the island, healing Mother Earth, deleting radiation from the waters around and within the island, then please join us. Finer details of exact meeting place will be posted on this event page once I have explored the area of Egypt/Trinity.
Each month on the Full Moon I will allow intuition to guide me to the next parish/venue/water source. Any ideas more than welcome. We have an amazing community here in Jersey so if you wish to ‘feel as one’ then please join this event.
You will need to do the following:
1. Cleanse your own crystal by placing outdoors throughout the nights leading up to the full moon (take indoors during the day to keep out of the sun), or any other cleansing technique you may already use (do not cleanse in salt water), purchase a small tumble stone if you do not have one you wish to give to the water (it does not have to be a big crystal). Bring the crystal with you if you are coming.
Quartz is the most powerful healing and energy amplifier on the planet because of its unique helical spiral crystalline form. At a spiritual level, this crystal raises energy to the highest possible level, clear quartz works on all levels of being. You do not have to use clear quartz specifically, although this is the most powerful, there are many other types of quartz so listen to your own intuition and chose accordingly.
2. I will have a sage stick for the ceremony, if you wish to bring your own or tobacco then feel free (tobacco is a sacred part of the ceremony, blowing the element of fire on the crystal you have said your prayer into)….again be guided by your intuition.
3.Watch this space for specific meet place/time.
4. Come with an open loving heart :o)
5. Any suggestions welcome.
I have been waiting to do this for 3 years, holding onto the 12 clear quartz crystals I bought back from Australia, the time is right for us to give each crystal back to Mother Earth surrounding the island from the points of each parish, helping to raise the islands frequency from Ego Consciousness to Love Consciousness, helping to delete and heal the planet from all the radiation in our waters, earth and atmosphere. Little Grandmother Kiesha has shown us a practical way forward……if you attended the Sunday workshop or have heard her message, we can no longer live in ignorance and do nothing.
If joining this Crystal Full Moon Ceremony does not resonate with you, but you wish to do something similar then please feel free to set up your own gathering…..giving some of your own crystals back to Mother Earth :o)
We are surrounded by mirrors in our lives and our Soul Movement practice of exhilarating movement combined with presence, meditation and mindfulness can clearly show you what you are resisting against in yourself. Once we can ‘see’ these parts of ourselves that we reject, we can better embrace acceptance of ourselves and with that let our energies flow and move into love consciousness and living from our hearts. The key to transformation in our lives and our experiences is acceptance … this brings the changes we perhaps have longed for to organically happen without us needing to push.
THE JOURNEY: Soul Movement uses 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. In our own dance, we learn to cultivate presence with our own energy, and upon discovering our own dance within, we use the movement that comes and the energetic experience to release stuck patterns in our body, emotions, mind and spirit. When we learn to really trust our body and the wisdom that moves through the LIFE in our bodies – not just in this class but in all aspects of our life – we see that all of life is an improvised creative dance and we become empowered to live from a place of truth and soul integrity, where spontaneity resides.
RELEASING BLOCKS: When we feel stuck, depressed, held back, and frustrated when our energy is not flowing freely, SOUL MOVEMENT unlocks these restrictions and opens us up to the possibilities of discovering and allowing our true creative, joyful nature to emerge.
JUST FOR YOU: No dance experience or partner is necessary. It’s a perfect outlet for those who think they “can’t dance” and for experienced dancers alike. It is free-form, not a structured dance. It is also not a social dance. It is an environment without observers or conversation, where you can feel safe to try new things and push your comfort zone. It is also an open dance floor for you to explore different rhythms, patterns of movement and your inner spiritual journey.
MOVEMENT is KEY TO HAPPINESS: There is much evidence to suggest that creative movement and dance is a key ingredient in a happy, healthy and fulfilled life. These classes are extremely encouraging, non-judgmental, well facilitated and the soft and subdued environment supports each individual. All walks of life are welcomed, and whilst there is no religious aspect connected to the dance, they do support our spiritual journey in life, whatever inclination or beliefs that we may each sway to.
Inspired by the 5Rhythms dance, Soul Motion and Movement Medicine, the classes are facilitated by Maria Barnicoat, and long term SOUL MOVERS often proclaim that these sessions have proved life changing for them.
Join us at First Tower school.
Cost £10 or £8 concessions.
Doors open at 7:15pm for early arrivals.
Bring a blanket and water.
See you there xxx
4 years ago our regular ecstatic dances in Jersey were born.
