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

‘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.’

Drums-at-MP1-300x225

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.

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.

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

Shamanic Drumming circle Saturday 2oth Feb 4.30pm @Sea Cafe Walmer Green Deal Kent

For ages now I have been thinking of setting up a local shamanic drumming circle and in this new year of the Monkey felt the time had come to actually DO IT!  So this Saturday, our lovely friend Peter is opening his space at the Sea Cafe on Walmer Green for us to join in circle to chant and drum.

Drumming in circles is so good for us.  Re-connecting with our community and the world around us.  Drumming is also one of those rare physical activities that can have both profound and subtle effects on the entire person.

  • Improved aerobic and cardiovascular system;
  • Strengthened immune system;
  • Improved mood and reduced burnout of workers under stress;
  • Reversed ravages of stress at the cellular level;
  • Reduced anxiety, depression and feelings of loneliness.

 

Playing on a drum doesn’t feel like exercise but it is!  Exercise for the body, mind and soul.  Its good for you but also really good for Mother Earth.  How’s that?  Well when we were taught to make drums by Patrick Pinson of Cedar Mountain Drums in Oregon he told us his story.  It was an amazing story of a battle against alcoholism and how the Drum Spirit had saved him in the end and he made a promise that every drum he made and every person he taught to make drums would every time they played their drum do it with the intention of healing, gratitude and love to the Great Mother.  How empowering that is!  Drumming with intention and love and compassion turns it from just physical exercise into something more, much more.

 

So if you’re in the neighbourhood come and join us 2oth Feb 2016 @ 4.30pm. We hope to make this a monthly gathering.  If you have a drum bring it-otherwise we have some to share. Cost £5 Refreshments available.   clip_image002

A Celtic Quest

A Celtic Quest ~ The Mysteries of King Arthur’s Court ~ One day introductory workshop

celtic quest

For centuries the stories of King Arthur and the Knights and Ladies of the Round Table have held us in thrall.

When the Plantagenet Kings became rulers of these lands, they felt it important to emulate King Arthur in order to express their Englishness. This legend was held in such high regard that Geoffrey of Monmouth wrote Arthur into his “History of the Kings of Britain”. For centuries this was held as true. Even today, scholars search for proof.

They are, of course, missing the point. Arthur is indeed the once and future King, he has been since these isles were formed and he will be long after we have gone. For he is the energy of the land. He is not sleeping, he is very much awake and waiting for us to take up our armour and work with him.

This introductory day will give us an insight into the meaning behind the legends and offer us a connection to the world of the ancients.

The weekends costs £100- sweat lodge weekends £135 and the drum making – £285. Completion of 8 required modules is necessary to graduate as a Foundation Level Shamanic Practitioner. You will be asked to carry out case studies and ‘homework’ throughout the training. On successful completion of the Foundation year you will be offered a further two years in depth training to complete your ‘Masters’

your reasons for wishing to undertake the training, your previous
experience of healing including qualifications and any Shamanic practices or knowledge that you might have. If accepted you will be asked to fill out medical and disclaimer forms.

Please note- So many people make the spurious claim these days to be a Shaman. We work shamanically and accesses information from the Spirit Worlds using shamanic techniques but that does not make us Shamen. Traditional Shaman skills are often handed down within a family or close community. In the Andes, being struck by lightening seems to be a fairly common way of initiation! In the West we have lost our tradition so we can attempt to retrieve and rebirth these lost arts for our community. We use the tools that Shamen and other teachers have taught us and work for the harmonising of individuals and humanity through our workshops and therapies. We are human and fallible, we don’t have all the answers .

If you’d like anymore information please don’t hesitate to call or email.
My number is 07809722097.
