14th January 2014Tapas Acupressure Technique
Denise Wood

Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT), is a meridian energy therapy, somewhat similar to EFT but less well known. Originally developed by Tapas Fleming as a method of healing allergies, it is simpler to use and often gentler than EFT but no less powerful, and thus is an ideal self-help tool. In this one-off workshop you will learn the TAT pose and thought-processing sequence, and how to apply this method to all types of trauma, stress and negative beliefs. TAT can also be safely used with children of any age and even with pets.

Denise Wood is the coordinator of Liverpool Holistic Circle, and a practitioner of various therapies and healing modalities. For information about one-to-one sessions she can be contacted on 0151 427 1607 or denise.wood@hotmail.co.uk 

 

21st January 2014Sahaja Yoga Meditation 
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 www.onlinemeditation.org    

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

 

28th January 2014 Mary Magdalene And The Return Of The Divine Feminine
Margaret Hunt

An evening in the presence of Mary Magdalene bringing the teachings of the divine feminine energies which are now present for our spiritual evolution. Her true history will be explained with descriptions of where she spent the latter part of her life in France where Margaret visited last year. There will be inner journeys to connect to the soul which will allow your true self to emerge and become empowered. During the evening there may be personal messages, inspiration, healing or visions of our future world from Magdalene.www.waterlilytemple.co.uk

4th February 2014Simple Massage for All
Denise Wood 

An opportunity to give and receive a simple foot massage, and a ten-minute back, neck and shoulder massage, under the guidance of Denise. Please bring a pillow or cushion, and a towel big enough to cover it, an oil, lotion or light cream that you are happy to have used on your feet (either in a dispenser bottle, or bring a small dish to hold enough oil or cream for the treatment - hygiene reasons), baby wipes and a clean pair of feet. There will be wipes and some oil available for anyone who forgets or can't bring their own. The back massage will be performed over clothing; no stripping off required! You'll go away with full printed instructions for both treatments so you can practise them on your friends and family, and be very popular! A nice Valentine's Day treat for your other half, perhaps.

11th February 2014  Guided Imagery for Self-Healing and Personal Growth
Denise Wood

The imagination gives us access to aspects of our selves that are normally hidden and unconscious - the very aspects which create our reality, our health and our relationships to other people and the world. Imagery gives us a different way of thinking about issues by allowing them to be represented non-verbally. It enables us to explore emotions that we might not otherwise be able to express, and to contact the unrecognised aspects of ourselves, leading to integration or healing.

This session will consist of one or more guided imagery exercises. Please bring something to write on and with. You may also wish to bring a cushion for your seat (the chairs being somewhat hard) and a blanket.

18th February 2014  Symbols and Meaning
Alan Roberts 

Alan first gave a talk for us on 15th February 2011 in which he explored the meaning of some of the symbols found in our meeting place. This time he will take a broader look at the nature of symbols and what they can do for us. 

Alan Roberts has taught Yoga for 38 years. He has also been a scenic artist and carpenter at the Everyman and the Playhouse, taught in local schools and has a PhD in literature. Alan has already visited LHC to speak about Eugene Halliday and a variety of other topics - visit his website at www.alanroberts.org

 
25th February 2014  Fracking - what does it have to do with us?
Denise Wood 

Until just three weeks ago all I knew about "fracking" was that it had caused a couple of earthquakes near Blackpool in 2012 and had then been stopped. I had a vague idea of what the process involved and thought it sounded like a bad thing, but I didn't think it would ever affect me. Then a Facebook friend posted a link to yet another piece about fracking. This time I followed it up, and I've gone on reading and researching ever since. What I've discovered fills me with dread.

Two thirds of the UK is on offer for licensing for unconventional gas exploration and development (aka "fracking"). Substantial areas have already been licensed, and some planning permits already granted. If this industry develops as the government wants and intends it to, we face the near certainty of our land, air and water being contaminated beyond remedy, within the next 5 - 10 years, and our countryside becoming a toxic wasteland. However dramatic this may sound, it is already happening in the USA and Australia. 

If you still think it won't affect you, consider this: two large areas in Liverpool Bay and the Dee Estuary are already under licence for Underground Coal Gasification, which involves setting fire to a coal seam in situ in order to produce gas, which is then extracted. This method is still in the trial stages, and has never been used offshore anywhere in the world. Trials in other countries have been stopped because of underground explosions and other major problems. A planning application for a UCG project in the Dee Estuary is currently under consideration. In Liverpool, our drinking water comes either partly or wholly from the River Dee. (Check the source of yours here http://www.unitedutilities.com/home-customer-my-water.aspx)

My purpose in this session will be to share some of the information I've found in the past few weeks, to make you aware of the facts, and to encourage you to do your own research. I'll be showing a film on the subject and presenting some other resources, and also suggesting actions you can take if you are concerned about these developments. Please bring a pen and notebook as you may wish to take notes.
 

4th March 2014 Joseph's Message
Denise Wood 

"Joseph" is a highly evolved spirit guide who is deeply concerned about the fate of mankind and returns to channel important spiritual information from the higher realms through the spirit medium, Michael G. Reccia. 

I first heard about Joseph and Michael in March 2009 and have been fortunate enough to be present at two public meetings where Joseph spoke through Michael and answered the questions of those present. There are also five books presenting, through Michael, Joseph's message to the world. This knowledge has completely changed my understanding of the nature of reality. Now, when we seem to be under attack from all sides by corporations and our own political leaders and lawmakers, I want to share this understanding with as many people as possible because it gives us hope, and tools with which we can change the world. I'll be explaining why so much is wrong with the world, about the true nature of humanity, and perhaps most importantly how we can and must use Light to bring everything back into balance.

11th March 2014  Healthy Ageing
Dalbinder Bains

With the percentage of the UK population aged 65+  at the highest ever recorded and 39% of the UK population expected to be aged 65 and older by 2030, shouldn't we all be thinking about healthy ageing?

Dalbinder will be talking about this fantastic subject : Why do we age? Strategies for "healthy ageing." What things can really make a difference and why and strategies for some common age related conditions. Come along and think about your own "Healthy ageing Plan." It's never too late (or too early) to make an impact on your health and wellbeing.

Dalbinder Bains is a highly experienced and qualified Medical Herbalist & Nutritional Therapist as well as  Patrick Holford Weight management Coach. She practices in Manchester and Liverpool and is a member of NIMH & BANT. 07841 39377 dalbinderbains@yahoo.co.uk              www.dalbinderbains.co.uk

Ho'Oponopono
Vicky Coombes

Ho'Oponopono means to 'make right' or 'reconcile' and is an updated Hawaiian Huna process to release memories that are experienced as problems. Created by Morrnah Simeona, a Hawaiian Kahuna (priestess) and made famous by her student Dr Hew Len and Jo Vitale in the 1990's, Ho'Oponopono consists of four simple phrases that can be applied to any situation or relationship difficulty to 'forgive' an error in the perceptions.

Saying I'm sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you and I Love you in no particular order releases stuck memories and moves us one step further towards the zero point or clear canvas of a creative and inspired life. Try using any or all of these phrases for a week and notice the difference. Find out more about how this simple, beautiful and clear mantra works and how to apply it.

Vicky Coombes is a Personal Development Coach with a special interest in belief and personality systems including religion, astrology, dream symbols, Tarot, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the Enneagram. Coaching Your Feelings blog at http://vickycoombes.wordpress.com offers free articles and info supporting personal growth. 


25th March 2014 Liver Cleansing
Pauline Moran 

Everything we eat, drink, touch, breath, smell, think and feel is processed by the liver. It is not for nothing that the word 'liver' includes the word 'live'.Many common symptoms such as headache and migraine, mental confusion, muscle pain, fatigue, poor coordination, nerve problems, skin irritations and emotional imbalances can be alleviated or eradicated by the cleansing of a congested liver. When liver function improves the entire body benefits.

Liver cleansing is easily done at home using ingredients found in the kitchen.The application of a Castor Oil (known in S.America as 'mano de Christo' because of its healing properties) 'pack', which improves circulation and accelerates recovery, will also be discussed.

..."The organs weep the tears the eyes can't."

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. She practises at Hope Street Holistic Clinic.

1st April 2014 Lemurian Healing
Jane Calcutt
 
Since 2012 we have been able to connect more and more to the ancient knowledge and energies of Lemuria. These powerful, high vibration energies can be used to heal the Earth but can also be used to heal people. Lemurians were highly evolved psychic beings that used distance healing throughout their everyday lives. During this session you will discover facts about who the Lemurians were, how they lived and why their civilisation came to an end. We will use sound, crystals, guided meditation and symbols to experience this healing energy and direct it as a group to where it needs to go. Memories of Lemuria are resurfacing now because as a society we have moved so far away from what really matters. We need to be reminded of our Oneness- all are connected and each of us has an intricate role to play and a unique gift to share.

The meditations and techniques will help you:

  • Understand the age of Lemuria.
  • Invoke the power of Lemurian healing energy which is said to be 10 times the power of Reiki.
  • Enhance your connection to guides from Lemuria.
  • Enhance your connection to Lemurian crystals.
  • Help with personal healing and emotional blockages.
  • Focus healing energy on the planet according to guidance the group will receive.
  • Receive the benefits of opening and balancing your chakras correctly.
  • Increase your intuition in all aspects of your life.
  • Enhance your inner happiness

 

Crystals will be available to work with but if you are in possession of a Lemurian quartz crystal please bring it along. A cushion and blanket will also be of benefit during the guided meditations.

Jane Calcutt is a teacher a Reiki healer. She has always been interested in spiritual development.

Lemurian Healing 2
Jane Calcutt

In the second Lemurian Healing session we will be exploring more deeply the concept of Oneness in relation to all aspects of our lives. You may feel especially drawn to Lemurian Healing if you have a deep love of nature. Through a combination of images, film, music and meditation we will enhance our connection to the healing energies of the ancient civilisation of Lemuria and experience these high vibration frequencies, which can be used collectively to heal our planet, ourselves and beyond. We will revisit the techniques taught within the first session, using sound, crystals and symbols to access the healing energy and direct it as a group, specifically in relation to connecting with our inner child and soul purpose.

Crystals will be available to work with but if you are in possession of a Lemurian quartz crystal please bring it along. A cushion and blanket will also be of benefit during the guided meditations. Each participant will receive a copy of 6 Lemurian Codices, geometric light encoded holo-dynamic imagery, which work on many levels and can change not only how reality is perceived, but also our unique participation within it.

Jane Calcutt is a teacher and Reiki healer. She has always been interested in spiritual development.

Toxins in your Home
Denise Wood

Many potentially harmful chemicals are found in everyday products such as household cleaners, air fresheners, packaging and furnishing materials. As always, knowledge is power, and while we can't completely avoid all of these toxins, if we know what they are and what they do we have the choice to limit our exposure as much as possible. In this session I'll talk about some of the most common culprits, point you towards more information, and most importantly suggest harmless (or less harmful) natural alternatives. As an added bonus, these are often cheaper than the toxic products they replace!
If you have any favourite tips or tricks for natural alternatives, you're very welcome to share them.

Denise Wood is the coordinator of Liverpool Holistic Circle, and a practitioner of various therapies and healing modalities. For information about one-to-one sessions she can be contacted on 0151 427 1607 or denise.wood@hotmail.co.uk

Sound Journey
Suzie Price

After a short relaxation exercise the slow, deep beat of the drum lulls participants into a deeper state of relaxation. The brain produces theta waves at this point, inducing a lucid dreaming/trance- like state, opening the mind, body and spirit to receive the deeply healing vibrations of the gong.  The pure penetrating sound waves of the healing gong will enable one to break free of old patterns and re-generate and re-balance oneself.  This is followed by the frame drum, energizing rattles, crescendos of both harmonious and inharmonious crashes, gentle chimes, and also silence to allow the brain and body to assimilate the healing.

If space allows, you may wish to lie on the floor during the sound bath, so please bring a yoga mat, sleeping bag or blanket and a cushion.  

Suzie has selected her instruments for their profound healing effects, based on her own experience. After years of searching for effective healing modalities for a long term health problem, she found sound to be the most effective. Now, after much success as a volunteer giving sound baths at NHS pain and stress clinics, she is ready to launch out as a self-employed therapist. She will be completing her Gong Master training with International Gong Master Don Conreaux in June. She also facilitates chanting circles, a fantastic healing and joy manifesting experience, fortnightly in Liverpool and Southport. Suzie can be contacted on 07779 498683 or venusheals@outlook.com

Angel Healing in three shades of light
Declan Kerr

Declan will be giving an overview of this new form of angel healing. The three shades of light correspond to or resonate with our physicality, our thoughts and feelings, and our spirit and soul.
The idea is to prepare a person with the different shades of light - like filling up their body with light - and then to ask the angels to bring healing through the prepared body for the person's highest good.
Besides connecting with angels and receiving healing - always a treat! -this healing method can help to remind us that we too can know ourselves as beings of light.

Declan Kerr is the author of "Finding Your Other Half" or how to find your soul. You can find more information about him at http://www.inwholeness.com
