DANCING FREEDOM

Dancing Freedom.jpg

HOSTED BY THE PSYCHEDELIC SOCIETY

Dancing Freedom is a facilitated movement meditation dance practice accompanied by sumptuous and inspiring music. It's a place to feel who you are rather think who you are. To feel your true heart's expression by simply moving your body. To dance freely, waking up the energy in our body is to remember that we are intrinsically part of and connected to the natural world.

What to expect?

Dancing Freedom works with the five elements, (earth, water, fire, air and ether) to inspire the tangible relationship between the natural world and the body's natural rhythm and beauty. Sophie mixes using musicians artistry from many different genres and cultures that speak to the human heart and soul, to earth, fire, air and water! The practice is open to all.

About Your Teacher Sophie

“I am dedicated to facilitating dance spaces where people can become more awake to their life's passion. I am a Yoga teacher, Dancing Freedom facilitator and DJ. I have danced, free of self consciousness, all my life and that's because I started as a little one to help me through life challenges. I am passionate about music and how it moves the body to release tension held inside, encouraging a greater sense self worth where life's dreams can be made reality.

I currently hold a regular Dancing Freedom community in Frome, Somerset, as well as DJing for conscious dance nights, Ecstatic Dance events, festivals and retreats.”

How To Build A Healthy Brain.jpg

HOSTED BY KIMBERLEY WILSON CPSYCHOL

What affect does diet have on mental health? Is there any evidence that exercise can improve depression? And how?What can you do today to promote long-term brain health?

Mental health disorders are one of the leading causes of health distress worldwide, and they can affect anyone at any time.

Though we can't prevent them altogether, there is good evidence that certain habits can reduce your risk of developing mental health concerns such as depression and Alzheimer's Disease. But research is useless if you don't know how to use it.

In this interactive seminar Kimberley will introduce you to the science and the habits that you can start to incorporate immediately into your daily life to help your brain be more resilient to the stresses of modern life.

What you will learn:

  • The session will cover the two main processes that underlie brain health and how your everyday choices affect them.

  • Kimberley will give you an overview of the gut-brain axis and describe how nutrients and food additives interact with the gut, and what the research says about how this impacts the brain.

  • Practical, actionable tips for the six different lifestyle factors that contribute brain health, including nutrition, exercise and sleep. These are effective strategies that she has used successfully in my own clinic.

This seminar, which is open to everyone, is adapted from a course that Kimberley developed for psychologists that has been accredited by the British Psychological Society for Continuing Professional Development. This means you can be sure that the information is accurate and up-to-date.

This session will be helpful for anyone with a brain they want to take care of! It will also be additionally valuable to those working in health and fitness: nutrition professionals, PTs, allied health professionals and those who work in the Wellness industry.

THE POWER OF EIGHT INTENTION WORKSHOP

THE POWER OF EIGHT INTENTION WORKSHOP

Power of Eight Intention Workshop.jpg

HOSTED BY LYNNE MCTAGGART & ALTERNATIVE EVENTS

Join internationally bestselling author Lynne McTaggart, the world’s leading intention guru, and author of The Field, The Intention Experiment and her newest book The Power of Eight, for a rare one-day workshop intensive in London to find out how to welcome miracles in your own life.

During Lynne's decade-log work on intention with prestigious scientists, she discovered an astonishing fact: when people carry out intention for each other in small groups of eight, miraculous healing occurs - virtually in an instant. 

In this special one-day workshop, you’ll discover how crippling illnesses like arthritis and depression, plus relationships, finances, careers, and even life directions can all be healed just through people sending their loving thoughts to each other in a group.

And that’s the most astonishing revelation of all: people who intend for others see their own lives transform and heal.

You will learn Lynne’s 12 rules of intention mastery – a unique blend of science and ancient wisdom – to discover how to counter negative intention, and experience the miraculous healing power of Power of Eight circles. 

Lynne’s techniques have been subjected to more than 30 university studies, showing that the group-intention experience appears to cause changes in individual consciousness, removing a sense of separation and individuality, and placing members of the group in what can only be described as a state of ecstatic union.

The altered state of consciousness experienced by participants – now verified in scientific studies of brain-wave patterns – is analogous to the ecstatic state experienced by a Sufi master or Buddhist monk. 

However, unlike those types of traditional practices, or others like sweat lodges or fasting, Lynne’s methods don’t require years of devoted practice, or long hours of priming or deprivation. 

The Power of Eight is a fast track to the miraculous. Harness the collective energies of The Power of Eight to unleash the power you hold inside to heal your own life – and the world around you!

About the speaker, Lynne McTaggart

Lynne McTaggart, one of the central authorities on the new science and consciousness, is the award-winning author of seven books, including the internationally bestselling The Intention Experiment, The Field, The Bond, and The Power of Eight and her books are in some 30 languages. She is also editorial director of What Doctors Don’t Tell You, one of the world’s most respected US health magazines, now published in 15 languages.

As architect of the Intention Experiments, a web-based ‘global laboratory,’ Lynne is consistently listed as one of the world’s 100 most spiritually influential people. Lynne and her husband, WDDTY co-founder Bryan Hubbard, author of the groundbreaking book The Untrue Story of You, live in London.
