Doing what we love – (talk) Main Hall 11 a.m. to 12 noon
Each of us has a unique blend of gifts to share with the world, to help make a difference, to play our part. We can choose to utilise these gifts in the form of ‘work’ or we can simply do what we love, making our mark and leaving a trail with passion, purpose and desire for the higher good of all. ‘Work’ becomes a thing of the past and life becomes an adventure of creativity and wonder as we simply express our love in the world. This has been Brenda’s journey which she’d love to share it with you in the hope that you too can spend your life simply doing what you love to do.
Understanding the language of our symptoms (workshop) Board Room 13.45 p.m. to 14.30 p.m.
Symptoms are our soul’s way of signalling to us that something is out of balance, no longer in harmony, needing attention. Learning to understand their language, ‘read’ our symptoms and respond to them, helps us understand and re-frame past wounds that remain unhealed as well as do regular ‘maintenance’ to keep ourselves fit and well. In this experiential workshop, Brenda will work with people individually, making life charts of their journey, as well as teach the basics of learning to hear our soul’s language.
Edwin Courtenay is a visionary artist, clairvoyant channel and healer, spiritual teacher and sound healer – he is the author of three books published in three languages and teaches regularly at the college of Psychic Studies in London. www.edwincourtenay.co.uk
Art Alchemy – Transformational Mandalas for Healing and Empowerment (Talk) Main Hall 12.45 p.m. to 13.45 p.m.
Mandalas have been employed throughout the world cross-culturally since the beginning of time to help aid mankind with healing and transforming their mind, body, heart and spirit and the world about them. Combining the power of colour, sacred geometry, symbols and ancient light language they are not only contemplative devices to be used in meditation but also powerful talismans which have the ability to effect the very nature of energy and matter in the physical environment.
Visionary artist, clairvoyant channel and spiritual teacher Edwin Courtenay has been creating – under Spirit’s directing hand – Power Mandalas for many years now. Using his power of sight in combination with his 25 years of knowledge in the magical and energetic fields to combine colour with sacred geometry and channelled light language with powerful magical and alchemical symbols and forms. Using digital art, he draws upon the images of nature to create powerful pictures for a variety of uses from healing to meditation and spiritual development to manifestation and cleansing.
This talk explores the use of Edwin’s mandalas and ancient mandalas for personal use and in the healing of others and the earth, land and homes. Explaining and exploring how mandalas can be practically used for meditation and activated through intent to work their magik whether they are seen or unseen in the world about us.
Throughout the talk Edwin will share with us some of his mandalas and introduce us to the Mandala Oracle Deck which he has created, explaining how it can be used to both heal and guide. A guided meditation using the Mandala of Abundance will be experienced in order to begin the process of manifesting in your life anything and everything that you desire!
The Green Ray – The Green Fire (Workshop) Board Room 14.45 p.m. to 15.30 p.m.
Since the beginning of time the power of nature has been invoked and petitioned to bring fertility and healing to both the land and mankind. The “Green Ray” as it has been known, greatly valued for its restorative and regenerative powers has been used to heal the body and bless the food, deities of the Earth – such as Demeter the Goddess of the Earth, Pan the God of the Woods, and latterly the Green Man called upon as representatives of this ancient power.
Now – in response to the world’s needs – a new and yet ancient presence steps forwards, offering a deeper mystery of the Green, a deeper current of the Green Ray not known since Lemurian times – THE GREEN FIRE. The Fairy of the Green, the ancient Fairy Queen of Earth, offers to return to man that which has been denied them too long, a force that can restore not only harmony to body, mind, heart and spirit but also passion, inspiration, solution, purpose, direction and hope!
The Green Fire – hidden in secret in the heart of the world – denied mankind as a result of their misuse of it in Atlantis – is finally returned now that it might be used to contribute to the world’s healing and to mankind’s restoration to wellbeing and power. Used not only to regenerate the land, the Green Fire also holds the promise of restoring to the collective consciousness of humanity, unity, harmony and hope for their future. Applied to individuals, the Green Fire cannot only heal the body but also the broken spirit, providing clarity and repair, direction and understanding, power and hope and truth concerning who we are and why we are here at this most important of times.
This mini workshop explores this power – offering an experience and sample of its energies to all who attend that they might recognize the hidden bounty hidden in nature’s glory and begin to discover how they might access it again.

In his talk, Keith will explain how hypnotherapy can enable you to access previous lives, what you can expect from a regression session and will illustrate his talk with examples of what some of his clients have experienced during their own regressions.
Steven Brown – Healthy Eating; The Building Blocks of Health and Wellbeing (Workshop) Board Room 11.30 a.m. to 12.15 p.m.
Having completed a Bachelor of Science degree at Newcastle University in Food and Human Nutrition, Steven is a Nutritionist registered with the Association for Nutrition (AfN) which holds the official register for qualified Nutritionists in the UK, an affiliate member of the British Dietetic Association (BDA) and a healthcare member of Coeliac UK. www.nutritionist-resource.org.uk/nutritionists/steven-brown
The workshop is designed to provide some basic, accurate and evidence-based information in a way that is easy to understand. It is intended to help clear up some of the conflicting information that is publicised by the media. I see many people who are confused as to what good nutrition looks like, and many have almost given up on the idea of trying to achieve a healthy diet, feeling that if they listened to every piece of advice they wouldn’t be able to eat anything.
Dominic Cleary – Grounding (Workshop) Board Room Board Room 12.30 p.m. to 13.30 p.m.
Dominic teaches and practises Shiatsu, Tai Chi & Qigong and is a member of the register of the Shiatsu Society. He trained at The Shiatsu College with all of the main teachers. The form of Tai Chi he teaches was brought to this country by Miss Rose Li (1928 – 2001) and is of the Yang (Pan-hou) Lineage.Dominic works with two forms of Five Element Qigong as well as The 8 Brocades. He also teaches the Hunyuan 12 Step form, as taught to him by Richard Druitt. www.dominiccleary.wordpress.com
Traditional Chinese Medicine – which informs all three disciplines that Dominic teaches – works with our connection to Heaven and Earth, or Yin and Yang as we also know it as. We get a more authentic connection to the divine, to universal oneness if we do it as a life form with our roots connected to the earth. In this workshop/session we will explore this dynamic, and taking some exercises from Tai Chi and Shiatsu we will learn what ‘rooting’ and ‘grounding’ feels like, and how we can utilise these practices in our own healing modality.
