Breathwork is the New Yoga with Julie Ann Horrox

Introducing Award Winning Transformational Breath® with Julie Ann Horrox Breath Coach with over 19yrs of experience of conscious breathing.*

Were you aware that 90% of all the pain we experience is down to trapped emotions? This emotional baggage stays with us disrupts our lives, causing disease
and self-sabotage. When we hold our breath it stops the painful feelings, but only temporarily, life inevitably brings our patterns to the surface again.

When we suppress these emotions it leads to Anxiety, Stress, Burnout, Depression and even addictions.

Transformational Breath® is extremely efficient at clearing blocked energy from Body/ Mind/Psyche, setting us free from the past and enabling us to
reach our full potential.

You can join me at this event to discover………
What is Transformational Breath®? How does it work? What can it do for you?
What are the 100’s of benefits? These questions and more will be answered in this informative and fun taster workshop.
There will be a short breath meditation, a demonstration showing you exactly what to expect in a Transformational Breath® session, and a 10-minute taster session.

You will gain insight into how your unique breathing pattern is affecting the way that you live your life, and how you can become more successful at
whatever you do with better breathing. 

11.15 - 12.00
How to Play the Native American Flute with Cloudsong

I have always drawn to the Native American culture from a young boy due to its relationship to nature, I witnessed how living with nature you grow to have so much of an understanding with it - you become part of it. Having a natural instinct for making items from the Native American's way of life and sharing them world wide, the Flute was a continuation of a path for me to follow, and so I taught myself how to play.

By way of thinking from the heart and being a visionary I have become a conduit in feeling the emotions that appear before me. Please join me for this workshop as I share my gifts and understanding of this beautiful instrument with you.

12.15 - 1.00

Somatic Movement Workshop - Awakening the Spine with Alistair Edmunds
 

A great way to learn more about your body through the experience of moving it. This workshop will focus on the spine, working with skeletal structure,
underlying formation as well as organ and nervous system support.

Throughout the introductory workshop I will use guided visualisations, music, breath, facilitated movement and touch along with the aid of medical
textbooks and anatomical models providing a map for exploration in movement. Somatic Movement promises to leave you feeling more connected to your body,
to help you understand more about what is going on with your body, learn about yourself physically and emotionally through movement and help you to
find different ways to relate to your body. The exploration during a Somatic Movement class can be applied into other movement practise (for example, dance, yoga, martial arts etc.) or into your daily life and is suitable for anyone who enjoys movement. No experience necessary.

12.15 - 1.00
Laughter Meditation with Joe Hoare

A gentle embodied relaxing approach to laughter yoga and laughter meditation.

Oprah wrote: "Laughter Yoga combines laughter with yogic breathing exercises. It is a perfect way to laugh and get exercise at the same time. It approaches laughter as a body exercise so it's easy to laugh even if you're depressed or in a bad mood.
Last year I highlighted Laughter Yoga on my TV program. I've tried it, and it works."

My own personal wake-up changed my life forever, in one ripping instant. I realised from that spiritual catharsis that my life was one of service, and all my endeavours have been directed to that end ever since (1991). Even in the most corporate team-building and conference environments my agenda has always included encouraging people to connect with their good-natured, creative individuality and perform better not just for themselves but for a bigger picture for the good of all. And it works.

Following that thread, my personal development work is about empowerment: helping people wake up, come alive, be the best they can be, and enjoy the ride. Because this enjoyment is contagious, it gives others permission to enjoy the ride too. It stimulates qualities like connection & kindness, and its ultimate effect is to enhance people's experience of being alive, for the benefit of all.

I do this through courses, workshops, Retreats and one-to-one sessions. I do it however it works best, and find that the right people always attend the right session.

Professionally I have been running meetings, delivering conference sessions and providing workshops for over 30 years. My clients range from the international blue-chip companies (such as Kraft, Bank of Ireland, Novo Nordisk, Lloyds, Continental Airlines), to universities and colleges (including Bristol, Dundee, U.W.E, Cheltenham Science Festival), to charities and the Healthcare sector (Housing Associations, the NHS, Oxfam, NACTHPC, and others), and to the very experiential end of the spectrum like Glastonbury Festival.

In 2006 I set up the UK's Laughter Facilitation course, to teach others how to use this material. In 2000 I co-authored 'The Holistic Workspace', and in 2013 'Awakening the Laughing Buddha within' with the Barefoot Doctor.

The Way of the Druid with Dr Alan Jones

Who were the druids?

Expect to be informed and perhaps a little challenged. We will engage in what could be called a Druidic Mediation in which the spirit of inspiration, The Awen, can be invoked for use by all those who choose to long after the workshop has finished.

Group Sound Healing Journey with Belén Prado

This sound healing session is designed to take you to a state of deep relaxation which allows the body to restore its natural frequencies. By taking people to a relaxed and calm state, we are allowing their self-healing mechanisms to be activated, with the possibility of recovering health if this state is maintained long enough. During the session you will listen to several instruments such as singing bowls, bells, koshi chimes, Native American flutes, shamanic drum and voice.

Belén Prado a sound therapist, a Native American flute teacher and a wellbeing coach. She also believes in the importance of connecting with nature for healing and she organises community activities with this aim. She has been playing the Native American flute for over 8 years and she could experience the beneficial effects of it. Her interest for the healing potential of sound grew when she started to play the flute at sound journeys and meditation sessions in Bristol, and she finally decided to train as sound therapy. She also gives one to one sessions where she mainly uses tuning forks, a powerful tool that fascinates her. You will find more information at her website: www.natural-tuning.com. "

Belén will be joined by sound therapist Karolina Wysocka www.soundoflife.co.uk

Relationships! Make a Change with Elizabeth Pritchard
Really feel it. See yourself through the eyes of your partner, friend, or foe. Gain a new perspective, and use it. 'Never be stuck again'
 


This is a useful NLP* exercise for exploring a relationship you’d like to understand better...make a change in...or have some practical help with...

I’ve found a couple of videos which help explain it:

Gives you an idea, except that I like to use 4 positions rather than 3, and I don’t think of Position 3 in quite the same way as this presenter does. Nevertheless, the broad idea is there.

We add in more steps than you can see in this exercise, deepening the experience and testing new behaviour more fully. Again, only 3 positions shown.
*Notes: Neuro Linguistic Programming:

‘NLP stands for 'Neuro Linguistic Programming' and has been around since 1970's when its founders, Richard Bandler, Frank Pucelik and John Grinder first modelled other therapists. NLP is often known as the "user’s manual for your mind" and studying NLP gives us insights into how our thinking patterns can affect every aspect of our lives. It looks at the way in which we think and process our thoughts (Neuro), the language patterns we use (Linguistic) and our behaviours (Programming) and how these interact to have a positive (or negative) effect on us as individuals.

NLP is a collection of a wide range of methods and models which create an understanding of thought process and behaviour. Understanding these techniques can bring about a positive change in you and others.’

ANLP-UK Association 07796 048755 elizabeth8@zeteticmind.com 

I teach Certified 10 Day NLP Practitioner Trainings in Bristol and Cornwall. There are also introductory days (NLP in a Day) available in both locations and I do Personal Strategy™ work with individuals and groups.

When people ask me how I got into ‘all this’, I take ‘all this’ to be my interest in the inner lives of myself and other people. When I was 16, Julie and I escaped games lessons to read poetry behind the coats in the cloakroom at Bath Convent. We’d also stay up all night sometimes - talking and wanting to understand things about how life worked. Julie went on to become an artist and I went to Manchester University to study English & American Literature. Why American? Because some of the American poets seemed to say it in a real way about that internal experience I was getting very excited about. Why Manchester? Because I came from a farm in Wiltshire and I’d seen Coronation Street on TV, and I thought that people Up North were sort of gritty, direct and honest.

Back in Wiltshire after University, I became an English teacher, and signed up for an Introduction to Counselling course in Trowbridge. This time the people exploring thoughts and feelings were not friends, just people who’d signed up to the course. I was fascinated, and, of course, carried on ‘talking deep’ to my friends as well. Then Colin came to rent a room at the farm. There was something very direct about the way he talked to people. I was fascinated - again - and determined to find out what it was, what he’d done. He’d done one of the Large Group Awareness Trainings of the early 80s. This meant even larger groups of people talking about deep stuff. I was even more fascinated.

Eventually a business grew out of this seminar – window cleaning was considered but telephone marketing was chosen. This meant that I was now studying ‘all this’ full time, and I did for 14 years. Now, my partner Joseph and I work in this way full time, and continue training and collaborating with other people. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) was introduced into our telephone marketing business in 1984, and we studied it alongside other communication and personal development methodologies. Our business trained over 400,000 people in telephone sales and over 100,000 in management skills.

Following over thirty years of NLP training - and 6250 formal training hours on my part alone, with the founders and global leaders - Joseph and I began to offer our own NLP Certification Courses in 1999.

Workshop Two

10.15 - 11.00       
Contact Improvisation - An Introduction with Alistair Edmunds

Contact Improvisation is based on the physical exploration of how the body moves through its own intelligence and how two or more bodies in contact with each other can move together, a dance that fine tunes your senses and wakes up your ability to listen and respond to what is happening in the moment. Sometimes wild and athletic, sometimes quiet and meditative, it is a form open to all bodies and enquiring minds.

*In this introductory class, we will tune in to our own bodies, and our connection to the floor  before learning to listen physically to each other, learning to trust the body to organise around the influencing forces present. *

11.15 - 12.00

The Magic of Energy Healing ... Enabling you to move forward in your life!  with Jackie Howchin

I have been working with energy healing for many years, and I never cease to be amazed by the magic of this wonderful process of helping people to heal from the inside out.

We all carry around unwanted ‘stress’ in our bodies - those negative thoughts, feelings and emotions which we collect on a daily basis throughout our lives, including frustration, anger, fear, guilt, anxiety, sadness, hopelessness, despair, shame ... the list goes on.

So many people come to me feeling ‘stuck’ and unable to move forward. This feeling may relate to their home life, work, relationships, or simply that they don’t know what their next step should be.

Perhaps your body is suffering from physical pain or disease. Our body ‘talks’ to us when we need help, showing us physical ‘dis-ease’ to make us listen. It may start with something small like a little indigestion. We often ignore these messages and carry on pushing our way through life. Eventually our body gets so ‘blocked’ and ‘heavy’ that it starts to shout at us - which is when we may well listen and perhaps visit our GP. Unfortunately the next step is often to take prescribed medication to deal with the symptoms - but we still need to deal with the ‘cause’, otherwise our bodies will struggle with more serious dis-ease over time! That’s where I can help.

My work focuses on accessing any negative thoughts, feelings and emotions that are holding you back - keeping you stuck. Sometimes these may be sub-conscious self-limiting beliefs that you’re not even aware of, which may have been with you since childhood. In order to heal, you must go within, and visit those heavy energies – those feelings that we don’t really want to look at, so we tend to bury them deep within us.

Using a combination of processes, including Reiki energy healing, life guidance and self-expression through art and other media, it’s possible to access these blockages. By bringing these feelings and emotions to the surface, you are then able to acknowledge, release and let go of them, thus removing the heaviness inside that can make you feel ‘weighed down’.

I believe that it’s important for people to be aware of their own energy and how it affects not only their life, but the lives of others. I am a great believer in the Law of Attraction: thoughts become things! It’s so important to live in the present… letting go  of the past, which you can’t change, and to let go of fears about the future – to live truly in the present moment and focus on the positives. We have so many wonderful things in our lives to be grateful for... which we often take for granted. The vibrational energy that you transmit acts just like a magnet, attracting the same type of energy back into your life. Therefore it is imperative to keep your energy bright and light, in order to attract positive people and experiences into your life. This isn’t always easy when you are struggling with a stressful situation, or feeling so low and depressed that everything feels negative, but I can help you find the positive in every situation (because there always is one!). Sometimes we all need a little reminder and re-balance of our energies to keep us focused, or perhaps just some support to get us through a difficult period.

Jackie Howchin RGP
(Reiki Master – Life Guide – International Healing Artist)

I  have been working with Reiki for many years, and have a deep passion for my healing work, which is the love of my life.  It’s been a long journey for me, full of very difficult lessons, which have taught me so much.   In addition to my Reiki Energy Healing, I also believe that healing with words is incredibly effective - and my therapy therefore includes an element of Life Guidance.  Educating people to understand their energy, and how it affects them and everyone around them, is crucial if they have a desire to truly heal themselves in every aspect of their lives. 

I am also a Healing Artist – producing inspirational channelled art, infused with love and Reiki energy healing.  My art has proved very popular, as it continues to provide healing to the people viewing it, or to the home in which it is displayed.

I also run Healing Art Workshops, and Healing Collage Workshops, aimed at supporting and encouraging emotional healing through Art and creative self-expression for those living with pain, grief, fear, frustration, anger, anxiety, self-limiting beliefs, stress and so much more.

Loving what I do … Loving life !

'Practical Ways to use The Violet Flame' with Hilary Stanley


The Violet Flame is the source of Violet Light which is the highest ray of light that we can see with the naked eye.

'The Violet Flame has changed my life. It has been my passion for many years. Since first learning of it I felt inspired to incorporate it into all other healing and spiritual work. It soon became part of my daily routine and my way of life. My knowledge and understanding of it has expanded considerably over time, and I now want to share what I have learned so that others can discover the magic of the Violet Flame for themselves.

I hope it will inspire you to become the person you truly are, living the life you chose to experience, in the world you would wish it to be. Change must begin with the individual and the potential to create a new world lies within each one of us.'
