Homeopathy: Back to Basics (1 of 3)
Emma McEvoy

In this three-week course Emma will cover the basic principles behind Homeopathy. Emma is a regular contributor, and will revisit information which she shared with us in her first course for LHC - all of seven years ago! Homeopathy is based on the principle of treating "like with like", and uses highly diluted doses of substances to treat symptoms which a larger dose of the same substance would cause.

Parts 2 and 3 of this series will be held on 18th and 25th January.

Emma McEvoy (BA (Hons), DipHomMed, DSH, MARH) has graduated as both a Classical and Shamanic Homeopath. She is also a Reiki Master and a practitioner of other holistic disciplines. Her practice, based in Aigburth, has been established for 11 years. For appointments ring 07989 445471, email her at ems.mcevoy@blueyonder.co.uk or visit Emma's website at www.emmamcevoy.biz.

Appreciative Living - an introduction to Appreciative Inquiry
Suzanne Quinney

Appreciative Inquiry is a way of working with people who have complementary concerns or interests. The aim is to understand people's view of the world, develop new and creative ways of looking at issues, appreciate and value the best of what people have got and then help to make it even better.

Suzanne will summarise the origins and nature of this approach and its links with Positive Psychology, and lead a practical exercise to offer a flavour of its energising and creative potential. For more about Appreciate Inquiry, examples and reference material, see www.appreciatingpeople.co.uk.

Suzanne Quinney a co-founder of Appreciating People and a trained Appreciative Inquiry practitioner. Her approach is based upon discovering "what works" and building on the strengths of individuals and organisations. Such an approach is being successfully both in personal development and in the private, community and public sectors to promote and support transformational dialogue at all levels.

An Introduction to Sahaja Yoga Meditation and Mantra 
Pauline Moran

Sahaja Yoga is a meditation technique that involves the awakening of a subtle spiritual energy known as the Kundalini which lies dormant in the sacrum bone at the base of the spine in three and a half coils. The word ˜sacrum" is derived from the word ˜sacred", which suggests that this is not new knowledge. Sahaja means ˜born with you" or ˜spontaneous"and Yoga means ˜union with the divine". The gentle awakening of this Kundalini energy and the inner journey of Self-discovery is known as Self-realisation or Yoga. For more information see http://www.onlinemeditation.org/    http://www.sahajayoga.org.uk/Try_meditation/how_SY_works.html

Pauline Moran is a naturopath, having originally studied osteopathy at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine and graduated in Complementary Therapies from the University of Westminster. Pauline was originally involved in art and design, having studied Fashion Textile Design at Liverpool and Brighton Polytechnics and moved into therapeutic art when working with children with speech and language disorder. Discovering meditation 25 years ago and experiencing its health benefits instigated the move into natural medicine. She practises at Hope Street Holistic Clinic and teaches Sahaja Yoga every Monday free of charge. Tel: 0798 992 7701, E-mail: pmoran2@mailpuppy.com

The Tibetan Book of the Dead (or of Living and Dying) looks at the self and how it relates to the world. In discussing the processes of death it discusses how to deal with life.

Therapy Share

This is an opportunity to give and/or receive a short treatment, try a therapy that's new to you or even have a reading. What's on offer depends on who turns up, but there are usually reiki, reflexology, metamorphic technique and some kind of massage. 

The idea is that those who can will give one or two short treatments/readings (eg. tarot) and receive one themselves. Don't worry if you aren't able to offer anything - you're welcome to come along and sample what's available. We have three or four treatment beds, but if you need one and can bring your own it will help - and if anyone can bring pillows and blankets please do.

Exploring Soul, Mind, Ego and the crisis in human affairs
Tony Cawley

Does it seem to you that the world is changing rapidly, maybe reaching a critical pitch? Are you feeling tired, stressed, and anxious about the future? Is it simply the recession or perhaps the first small signs of a full blown shift in global consciousness? Who can say if such a time is really upon us, but it does feel like something different is going on. If this is the beginning of a leap forward in our evolution, how can we best prepare for it? It seems to me that it will probably mark a shift from being centred in our Minds and Egos, to being centred in Soul.

So where does the mind end and the soul begin, and what might such a shift be like? How we handle these times of crisis is critical, we can grow and evolve, or simply go under! If this is what's happening, it will be a unique crisis, but crises follow generalised patterns, and knowing these patterns saves vast amounts of pain. And if it's not what's happening? Well we still need to be centred far more in our hearts and souls, if we really want to be happy and fulfillled people!

This is an invitation to discuss the nature of Soul, Mind and Ego, against the backdrop of these increasingly challenging times.

In May Tony will be running a workshop on this topic. To download the info click here.

Tony Cawley has been a psychotherapist in private practice in Liverpool for 22 years. Before that he did many things, including being a one parent family, working in therapeutic communities, running a drug rehabilitation community and running away to sea. He has had a lifelong spiritual search, with many a twist and turn, but says he has fortunately always managed to make the right mistake at the right time!
