A Ceremonial Gathering
At this time of challenge and change on our beautiful planet, we must do our best to offer what is powerful and workable into the energy stream. At the highest, that offering is LOVE.
Mother Earth has held us crazy humans in her loving arms and heart for so very long; we need to step up and reciprocate at this time of Her graduation into a new level of being which will uplift us all.
We will learn about creating powerful & beneficial ceremony, the use of the drum and other sacred implements, and songs of empowerment. Then comes cleansing ourselves and putting our knowledge into action.
Gathering in circle, we will call in our finest allies, sing and dance our Love into the ground, vibrating it inward and upward for the benefit of all.
This workshop is open to men and women
Cost £200 concessions available
Individual sessions are available on Monday 18th by prior booking cost £65

Individual sessions available ~18th July
You will create, decorate and empower your own magical drum and beater. Journey to discover the Spirit and name of your drum. Honour, name and celebrate its creation with a Fire Ceremony. An enjoyable, sociable creative weekend for all. No previous creative skills required. All materials provided.
‘Much of the Art of Drum Making cannot be spoken-it is about tapping into our creative centres, contacting Spirit and bringing into being what we are given. Drums are a Shamans /Shamankas most important tool. When he/she makes their own it is a birthing process-a moment of conception; when the seed of the idea meets materials gifted by Mother Earth. A gestation- as the process unfolds. A birth as the drum is completed and then honoured and named in Ceremony.
Their drum becomes their companion, their most powerful ally and teacher. If cared for it will mature and grow old with them. When the Shaman/Shamanka walks the Rainbow Bridge the Drum Spirit will go with them, keeping rhythm for the next dance.’
I feel that this is true. The Drum Spirits are really needed now. They beat for the healing of Mother Earth-they beat for our own illumination-they beat for joy and sorrow-they beat for celebration and ceremony-they beat for cleansing and clearing-they beat for us.

A Native Way of Coming to Presence and Power
One of my wise native elders reminded me that, “through the face of a flower, spirit shines into the world.” When we can blossom into our fulness, we are also that kind of gift to All Our Relations. Brooke will work with you to clear the soil of your history and your ancestry so that you can be nourished properly. Then, you will align yourself with the great Tree of Life, the stalk upon which you can truly blossom. Coming into resonance with the great power of your own Divine Design and the purpose of your heart, you will move gracefully into the process of becoming more of who you already are – of BLOSSOMING INTO YOUR FULLNESS.
What a gift you are! and it will be a joy to support and see that beauty come forth!!
Come ready to be PRESENT in the POWER & BEAUTY OF WHO YOU ARE, to release old traumas and limitations, and move forward in sweet loveliness – the Flower of Who You Are.
Cost for the workshop ~£100 ~private sessions available by prior booking cost £65

Sacred Chocolate helps us integrate our dark and light side so that we can embody and share all of our gifts in this lifetime . There is no hiding with Mama cacao, she will seek you out, burrow and furrow in the deepest darkest riches of your being, showing you the places where you have become dried, deadened brittle, afraid to love, afraid to be seen afraid to express,seeking even permission just to BE. It can get messy, it can be fun as we reclaim the parts that have been neglected or unloved.But let the tao of cacao lead you with love so that you can become whole and live your passion and let your passion live.
The workshop will include cacao meditations, sacred drumming and movement and the drinking of ceremonial chocolate . There will be moments for deep rest and reflection. Sacred cacao is needed right here right now, to help us grow and evolve and to shift humanity into greater depths of compassion and awareness and Love . When we transform ourselves we transform the world. MAY THE TAO of cacao sweeten your now and may the love of chocolate inspire your life as it has mine.

Shamanic Journeying & Trance Dance
Working with the Medicine Wheel
With Leo Rutherford
The Astor Theatre, Deal Kent, CT14 6AB
Trance-Dance brings together body movement, dynamic rhythms, healing sounds, transformational breathing techniques and the innovative use of a blindfold or bandana – together stimulating a trance state that promotes spiritual awakenings, mental clarity and emotional well-being.
Shamanic journeying takes us inside while the body goes into rest mode. The monotonous beat of the drum enables an opening in our visionary centres. Travelling with specific intent garners our inner being/spirit to give us pictures and feelings to help understanding of life patterns.
Both these methods can take participants on an ‘inner journey’ outside of normal perceptions of space/time. Ritual trance journeys have been a vital part of shamanic cultures for thousands of years. Our contemporary approach to Trance-Dance brings together the richness of these ancient rituals with effective modern techniques. Often the shaman will begin to enter the trance state through movement and then come to the floor and leave the body to journey.
The Medicine Wheel teaches how the Universe works, how the many forces act on us in our lives and how to live connected to the greater powers. It shows us how to maintain balance and harmony, how to dance our way through peacefully and lovingly in the midst of life’s numerous challenges.
The dance: Cultures from every continent on this planet embraced unique dance forms based on the animals and elements of nature present within their domain. Their purpose in dancing was to enter elemental or animal consciousness, to become the spirit of the sun, moon, or shape-shift into an animal and or plant life. To ‘dance like nature’ was to vibrate at the same rate as Creator, much the same as any newborn child will mimic its environment out of love and appreciation for its existence. Dance was synonymous with prayer, a demonstration of reverence.
Through Trance-Dance and Journeying we disappear into spirit, detaching from life’s ordinary challenges, able to let go and see through and past everyday issues to deeper patterns. Shamans know that all dis-ease originates in the energy matrix of our being and “travel” to the source to effect healing. For many of us these patterns can lie deeply hidden yet affecting us on every level. Through these methods participants enter parallel realities where hidden patterns can be experienced and solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems may be accessed.
Trance-Dance & journeying are magical catalysts for emergence to happen and patterns to shift:
*Develop greater creativity and self-expression *Develop richer connections to your Self, to others and to spirit
*Gain flexibility, vitality, strength, improve body image *Connect with your soul’s purpose
*Solve seemingly intractable problems. * Enjoy greater confidence
Cost for the weekend £120
