Syntonic Healing - bringing frequencies into harmony
Declan Kerr

Syntony involves an alignment of frequencies, usually to achieve resonance, and the word is sometimes associated with radio engineering or music. In Syntonic Healing™ the frequencies surrounding any situation are first brought into resonance, and then into harmony - the minus and plus in any situation are brought together, unconditionally, for resolution.

Syntonic Healing™ embraces an understanding that once we accept all aspects of a situation then we can do something to change it - and in bringing together all aspects of a situation we create a new awareness. The new awareness can be deeply nourishing. The process is natural and simple and can be used for any or every issue whether physical, emotional, mental or spiritual, alongside patterns of behaviour, limiting beliefs and so on.

This session is an introduction to this healing method, and we'll have a look at acceptance and see what happens when we bring all aspects of acceptance into harmony.

Organ transplants - the moral and ethical implications
Pat Linton

The recent decision of the Welsh parliament means that everyone is assumed to be a willing organ donor unless they opt out. It is reasonable to expect the same to happen in England in the near future. This change has far-reaching implications, especially as globally the medical profession cannot actually determine the time of death. In this evening's session, Pat Linton will present some of the medical facts that lie behind this issue, and then the meeting will be opened to discussion of the moral, ethical and religious implications for society that this law will create.

Pat Linton has a doctorate in Social Anthropology, with a special interest in consciousness evolution and its impact in society and education.

Meeting with Archangels
Declan Kerr 

The archangels in particular can get a bit stuck in history - maybe guiding prophets or inspiring renaissance artists - so it can come as a shock as well as a beautiful revelation to realise that archangels are with us today.
This evening is an opportunity to meet a few archangels - to allow ourselves to know a little more about what we already know about these angels and to deepen our acquaintance and connections. We'll be inviting Michael along - he's often the first Archangel we sense or get to know - and also Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel and Zadkiel. We can also ask them about themselves - and what does this help us to know about angels - and what does it help us to know about ourselves.
If you have 5 minutes before Tuesday you could tune into one of these archangels - just pick the one you feel you'd like to connect with - and have a think about what you already know about this angel (this is ok to do if you feel you know nothing) - and how you feel when you think about this angel - and then what you know about this angel in your awareness.

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.

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

The Nature of the Ego
Alan Roberts

When we refer to the "ego" we are usually implying a sense of self that we might describe as an identity kit. Often the word has negative implications associated with ideas that it is a type of behaviour to be avoided.  Egotism or egotistic behaviour are usually unwelcome, perhaps sufficiently so to deter consideration of their implications.  But whether we like it or not, the ego is a basic part of our experience and maybe, as we take a closer look at it, we can find new ways to see through or overcome its hazards.

 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 been a regular contributor to the LHC programme over the last few years - visit his website at www.alanroberts.org

Guided Imagery for Self-Healing and Personal Growth
Denise Wood

In this session Denise will take you through another guided imagery exercise (or two), giving you the opportunity to contact parts of your unconscious that are normally hidden. You'll have the chance to discuss your experiences and help each other to interpret them. This process can be profoundly revealing and healing. 

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.

Opening up to what you really are
Denise Wood

Most people believe that psychic abilities are a special gift which you either have or don't have, but this is simply not true. Everyone has a natural capacity to access the "collective consciousness", the "Akashic Record", the "Field" - call it what you will. When you allow yourself to remember your true nature, there is no limit to the knowledge you can tap into.
In this practical session, you'll learn how to psychically "read" other people, communicate with angels, create whatever you want in your life, and other cool and useful stuff. (As with most things, the more you practise the easier it gets, but the basic method really is simple - honest!)

10th December 2013 Angel Magic - Week 1
Jane Calcutt 

Are you ready to bring some angel magic into your life? Creating an Angel Mandala, sometimes referred to as an Angel Magic Circle, is not only fun but will also allow you to focus on and create what you really want for your future, with a bit of angelic assistance along the way. You don't have to be artistic - as an experienced primary school teacher Jane has techniques to help - you could be amazed at what you achieve! There is a collection of resources for this creative exercise but you can bring along anything you wish to add to your design- the sparklier the better. What you do need are some ideas on what you truly seek in your life for your spiritual, physical, emotional and mental needs. Making an Angel Mandala is a creative ritual which can show you how simple it is to be inspired and guided by the magical power of angels. 

17th December 2013 Angel Magic - Week 2
Jane Calcutt  

 

Christmas is a perfect time of year to focus on and connect with angels. This week we'll be looking at gaining messages from our angels. We all have angels- if we would only believe in them! In fact your angels are with you at all times but they cannot force you to be aware of them. With meditations, visualisations and instructions on how to use and even make your very own angel cards, you will be shown how simple it is to be inspired and guided by the magical power of angels. You will be introduced to the joy of having your angels in your life, meeting them in a simple and easy way, and demystifying the belief that working with angels is somehow difficult or the ability of only a few special people.

Extraordinary things can and do happen and remember- you're never alone when you have an angel by your side!
