Group Regression
Workshop

Saturday 23 March 2024
Saturday 20 April 2024
Saturday 25 May 2024
14:00 - 16:00

Zenw2 Studio

Workshop Program:
*Introduction
*About Dolores Cannon and QHHT
*Exercise to practice visualisation – i.e. seeing with your mind’s eye.
*Past life regression taster; receive information about yourself, from yourself.

You will write down your experience after the past life meditation and if you want to you can share with the group.

What it involves:

A group past life regression is a very light form of meditative trance. You will be laying down (or sitting on a chair if you want) with your eyes closed as you listen to and follow Genna’s voice who will guide you through a journey using your imagination, like a guided meditation. It’s a light state and gives you a taster - an opportunity to practice receiving information from yourself. It is the same kind of state you allow yourself to go into when listening to any guided meditation.

For any questions, please contact Genna directly on: contact@holisticwellbeingpractice.co.uk

Me Time - Healing 
Your Feminine

Friday 10 March
18:15 - 21:15

Zenw2 Studio

Shakti, life's feminine aspect, means power, energy, and force. Mythologically, Shakti is always described as feminine, often personified as the goddess, Devi, the divine feminine consort of the divine masculine god Shiva. But at the deepest level, Shakti transcends gender. This feminine principle sustains life in all its forms and levels and governs our spiritual evolution. With adequate practice and understanding of these forces, both women and men can transcend the limitations of the mind and become one with life.

 

The Circle of Feminine Deities reveals the universe functioning and our psyche. When we adore and recognise Goddess within, we come to know the divinity within us, our power, our grace and our oneness with the creation of life. Together, in sacred ceremony, we rediscover and honour the divine feminine within as we invite her expression to be seen, heard and felt. Allowing the power of our wisdom, emotions and intuition to be our guide.

 

Allow yourself to delve into this pure and nourishing space that will enable you to slow down, face your limitations, re-connect to your wisdom and empower the perfect being you are. In this workshop, expect healing yoga practice, rites, invocational chanting, sharing circle, meditation, and more.

 

Facilitators:

Clair Rosa (Shankari Mari Ma Murugananda Saraswati) is a yoga therapist, educator and healer with over 20 years of experience in teaching yoga. Due to her discipline and devotion, she has been initiated into Táraka Yoga and received the title of Mataji as a devotional tribute to Mother Goddess.

Her unique way of touching people's hearts provides comfort, well-being, knowledge, and strength beyond the genders. It's a guide so you can recognise your own being and live fully and happily.

Rebirthing Breath work and Sound Healing Journey 

Sunday 7 November   14:00 - 17:00

Zenw2 Studio

Kasia will open the space. The Rebirthing session will last around 1 hour. Sometimes breathing is done via the nose, sometimes via the mouth - depending on the group needs and energy. Rebirthing is a simple yet powerful breathing technique, relaxing and healing on all levels. It is very safe. Participants will lie on the mats. Each person will be supported to move through whatever will be released and felt during breathing. 

Within our breath we have encoded patterns which keep repeating  themselves in our life and through conscious, connected breathing we can have impact on them saying goodbye to those which don’t  serve us any more and saying hello to the new ones  which are more desirable. Truth, Simplicity and Love are the key elements of Rebirthing.

 

Michael will open the sound healing space and begin with a medicine drum journey, move to singing bowls, take you into an intensely clearing gong healing, returning you back to the earth and your body with drone the drone flute. He will also be using other sound tools at his disposal intuitively during the journey as needed.

There will be a voluntary sharing session at the end of each session to check in with everyone.

 

The session will last approximately 2.5 hours. Please be punctual to avoid  disruption for other attendees.

Rebirthing Breath work and Sound Healing Journey 

26 September   15:00 - 18:00

Zenw2 Studio

Niloufar will open the space and begin the breath work session. Conscious connected breathing, also known as Rebirthing, is a simple yet powerful breathing technique. It addresses negative conscious and sub-conscious patterns and beliefs by bringing them to the surface, for healing, awareness, integration and acceptance. 

Participants will lie down on mats in a circle and together we will start conscious connected breathing through the mouth and enter into a journey of sound and breath. Niloufar will guide the breathing journey and support each individual to move through the challenging experiences. By opening up areas of blockage, or stuckness in the breath and thus the body, we can access much deeper sources of joy, power, love and clarity.

Michael will open the sound healing space and begin with a medicine drum journey, taking you into an intensely clearing gong healing, returning you back to the earth and your body with the drone flute. He will also be using other sound tools at his disposal intuitively during the journey as needed.

Instructor Rishad is a veteran teacher of meditation and co-founder of Cocoon Academy. He says "the Surya Devi meditation was revealed to me intuitively as spring eclipsed the long and cold winter. It is the perfect practice to bring warmth and healing back into the body, and clear and activate the spiritual pathways which may have been dormant. For those that have meditated with me before, and for fresh faces, I can't wait to share this practice with you!"

Zenw2 Studio

An evening of light and lightness

Reiki is a gentle yet powerful energy healing method from Japan. The word Reiki is translated as Rei – Source and Ki – Energy, meaning Universal Life Force Energy. Most people feel they are guided into a calming, meditative state where they can explore their inner world. 

Having a reiki treatment is very personal to the receiver. Many sink into a deeply relaxing, meditative state, see colours or visuals, and feel different sensations, such as warmth, tingling or pulsating energy. From this place of groundedness and connection, many insights or intuitions can come forward either during the session or over the following days. 

Although Reiki is often used alongside spiritual practices, it is not religious. Reiki is a very safe and non-invasive complementary therapy. Practitioners use intention to share this energy through their hands, which can gently rest on your body or remain just above, at your preference.

Day Yoga Retreat for Women May 2022.png

Day Retreat for Women; Awakening Shakti

Saturday 14 May

09:30 - 18:00

Zenw2 Studio

Shakti means power, energy, or force. Mythologically, Shakti is always described as feminine, often personified as the goddess, Devi, the divine feminine consort of the divine masculine god Shiva. But at the deepest level, Shakti transcends gender. This feminine principle sustains life in all its forms and levels, and also governs our spiritual evolution. With adequate practice and understanding of this forces, both women and men can transcend limitations and manifest its talents and personal power, which can lead one to self-realisation.

 

The Circle of Feminine Deities reveals the universe functioning and our psyche, and this retreat aims to immerse ourselves into these worlds. Once the veil of illusion is pulled back, we can understand the deeper truths of life, which are hidden behind our attachment to the forms.

In this 1-day retreat for women, expect healing yoga, yoga philosophy, invocational chanting, withdrawal of senses, meditation, nourishing food, and a transformational day. 

 

This yoga retreat day will enable you to slow down, face your limitations, re-connect to your wisdom and empower the perfect being you are.
