Monthly new moon gatherings

Spending time with a group of compassionate, heart-centred people sharing part of your pain, vision and dreams. Feeling the supportive community witnessing and sharing your healing journey…that is something very special that I’ve taken part of on several occasions in my life over the past 8 years and what I intend to bring to you.

If you would like to feel how it feels to truly connect with yourself, your soul and other people mirroring parts of yourself back at you, then I invite you to join this beautiful space created by all of us.

Every single one of you have something to share. Even if you don’t say much when we meet, your ancestors, life stories and vibrations touches us all and mixes and shifts energies and fates as we move in and out of each others lives.

The space we create is sacred. The more people enter the room, you may even feel the energies building up.

The way I facilitate is very fluid and changes from time to time as I follow my intuition. It all depends on who is coming and what their intentions are. There are often many ‘Aha-moments’ as we recognise other people’s struggles and dreams.

Everyone is welcome and although we have a sharing in our circle, you may adjust the pace depending on what feels comfortable for you.

We meet with compassion, love, non-judgment and support. We don’t advice other people what they ‘should’ do instead we listen, witness and hold space for each other.

EXPERIENCE

– Smudging with palo santo to remove negative energies and impurities.
– Grounding using Guided Meditation.
– Sacred Cacao Ceremony using one of the highest ceremonial grade Mayan Organic Raw Cacao, channelled by ‘The Chocolate Shaman’ Keith Wilson. Hand picked, hand peeled (to remove mouldy beans!) and fair trade.

– Chanting to release, tune in and connect
– Heart Gong Sound Bath
– Sharing circle speaking about our intentions.

BENEFITS

– Relaxing
– Feel more connection
– Re-balancing
– Calming
– Clarity
– Focus

CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR THE CACAO CEREMONY

Because of the variety of cacao, which is significantly more potent, and the amount consumed in the ceremonial dose, there are a couple of contraindications to be aware of:

– Prescription Anti-depressants: Those that use MAO inhibitors to treat depression are contraindicated with chocolate. Check your med’s to see if this is the case. These tend to be less common nowadays.
– Serious Heart Conditions: cacao increases heart rate and is a vasodilator, so be careful if you have a serious heart condition
– Pregnant or breastfeeding: Go with a lower dose as cacao is a stimulant.

CONTRAINDICATIONS FOR THE GONG BATH

– Pregnant (first trimester)
– Tinnitus/Menieres/Epilepsy – Any conditions that could be triggered by sound.
– Metal implants/pins/screws/pacemaker – Can resonate the metal and also change rhythm of the pacemaker.
– Anyone with a serious mental health condition.

PREPARATION REQUIRED FOR THIS EVENT

You will need to avoid caffeine on the day. We also recommend you to follow a fairly simple and alkaline focused diet the day before, and on the day of the ceremony (including avoiding alcohol).

You’ll also need to arrange a quiet, gentle evening for after the event as symptoms of physical and emotional detoxification can arise unique to each individual.

INVESTMENT: £25

Only 11 spaces available.

We look forward to sharing this special journey together setting intentions with the new moon and planting seeds for 2018!

* Sound healing/Heart Gong Bath – A journey taking you deeper within to find answers, peace and space.

~ A circle of women ~ is an opportunity to be loved and held in a way that only women can provide.

There is something magical about a circle. Geometrically it encompasses more space than any other shape. Within it, one sets out on a journey and returns having never left her seat. Whenever we engage in an act of ritual that has been shared throughout time, we are the beneficiary of all the goodness that has come from it. The circle, in and of itself, is imbued with lifetimes of profound wisdom.

Aware Parenting Workshop & FREE access to a Q&A Group Session – Book now for last few places

Hello,

I’m sensing some doubt.  Are you super busy? Are you afraid to leave your child with another caretaker? Do you find a day too long? Or do you wonder whether the Workshop The Secret Language of Play is for you? Please tell me, mail me, what is stopping you from joining, so I can keep improving myself.   Of course, it can be that there’s a zillion things to do on your list. Like, we have so many things to do as moms!  And we definitely do not want to leave our children on our precious Saturdays. I get it. I really do. But do you ever wonder.. if I don’t act now, then when?  Life has that tricky habit of catching up with us!  Before we know it, we’re dealing with teenagers. Another ball game.  And we’ll look back on this precious time. So what we often really want, is not to hurry more, but to find more joy in spending time with our children! Not that holiday once a year or going to an attraction park, but especially in the day to day interactions with our children.

And threatening like a police officer is not on that list. Hell, that’s not what we signed up for, right? So let’s make this deal and agree: it’s time for more fun! And I can assure you, making that commitment already brings you towards more joy. But here’s the thing. When you invest 1 day in this workshop, you’ll get so much out of it, it will CHANGE THE WAY YOU PARENT! You invest 1 day but will win so much time in the future with your kids. So if you really want more fun, a new perspective, more tools, more joy, more play: In the Workshop ‘The Secret Language of Play’ you’ll get the easy-to-use tools to have more joy in your parenting. Also, you will understand your child’s behaviour. Because in the workshop I don’t just give tools. I also explain WHAT the behaviour of your child means. And really, this works and definitely brings the fun back! You’ll be able to connect better and more with your child and will feel less at a loss. Some of the things I get back after the workshop: “Wow. This changes everything I believed about parenting” “I’m so looking forward to go home and play with my child” “Chris! We’ve started doing your games the next day and I’m amazed to see it works immediately!”  So I love giving this workshop. Because it’s my PASSION. It’s my passion to get you super inspired to find that joy with your child, because I want YOU to enjoy your children the short time you have with them. And NOT struggle and fight. So what you’ll get from me in this workshop are some VERY PRACTICAL tools and some DEEP INSIGHTS into behaviour. Mind that I have so much respect for what each of us does for their family. So in my workshop there’s no shaming, no blaming of parents. The only thing that I’d like is to see is your happy face go home to your family and be the fun mom you want to be.     BUT… And you stay in control and you take home whatever you like from it. So. What is this play workshop all about? In this workshop I’ll help you to use easy to learn but very profound and special kinds of play, to deal with:

  • Sibling rivalry
  • Doctor, dental and hospital visits
  • Potty training
  • Sleep issues
  • Hyperactivity
  • Seperation
  • Anxieties, like for dogs
  • Eating issues
  • How to make up after punishments
  • Cooperation
  • Setting limits
  • And much more!

Anything I’m missing on that list? Please, send me an email and ask me if it’s discussed too! Really, it’s a super nice workshop! We’re with a cosy and small group this time, because I was late with promoting the workshop. This means there’s plenty of individual attention. There’s still a few places left (and I can assure you that you really do not want to miss out!)

CLICK HERE TO GET MORE INFO OR SIGN UP!

+ GET YOUR BONUS! If you sign up today you’ll get FREE access to the live online Q&A + the replay a few weeks after so you can personally ask me all your questions!

CLICK HERE TO GET YOUR TICKET TO OUR WORKSHOP + YOUR FREE ACCESS TO THE GROUP Q&A SESSION A FEW WEEKS AFTER.

I’m looking very much forward to see you in our workshop Saturday in East Dulwich!! Much love,

Chris
