Druidry, the seasons and a life of empowerment
with Penny Billington
Druidry is a spiritual path rooted in the land, leading many who find it to feel they have 'come home'. Tuning in to nature gives us a stability and continuity, a robust attitude which fits us to deal with the challenges of modern life. By observing and celebrating the natural cycle, Druids enhance their mythic and natural connections - and of course, at this season, we focus on the Solstice and the ancient Druid rite of the mistletoe as a way of connection and empowerment.
Penny Billington is a Druid celebrant in the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids and editor of the Order magazine, Touchstone. She regularly speaks and runs workshops, rituals and rites of passage. She aims to live with lightness of spirit, allowing spiritual experiences to expand from joy in the moment, and using celebration as a way of honouring life.Her latest book is 'The Path of Druidry: walking the Ancient Green Way', pub. Llewellyn, July 2011.
We will be serving Hot Mulled Wine and Minced Pies at this event to celebrate the season.

During this talk you will learn about the magical power of Angels to help us in incredible ways. You will also learn about the role of the four main Archangels and how you can call on their different healing energies.

EMOTIONAL REALIGNMENT THERAPY (ERT): IF YOU JUST WANT TO GET RID OF IT
with Dr Karen Janes
Do you remember the Operation game where you could pluck out an organ with a pair of tweezers and a steady hand? If only it was that easy to get rid of old emotional energy.... With ERT it is.
Dr Karen Janes is one of only a few Practitioners of ERT worldwide and a Reiki Master/Teacher and Doctor of Clinical Psychology. She will talk about how holding onto emotional energy from the past leads to blockages in our energy system causing ill health. Sometimes we are unable to release this energy due to the lack of a tool that works for us.
With ERT there's no need to talk about or analyse your memories; you connect with the pure energy so you don't need to know what the underlying problem is and you're in charge. If you're ready to just to 'get rid of it' this is the therapy for you.

BODYTALK: HOW TO ENHANCE YOUR HEALTH IN 2 MINUTES
with Kathleen Knecht
Come and learn a technique to improve brain function. The Bodytalk system is a comprehensive energy system which pulls together the wisdom and philosophy of Acupuncture, Chiropractics, Chinese Medicine, Kinesiology and insights from Maths and Science. Devised by Dr John Veltheim in Austrailia in 1995 this system can bring about remarkable changes in health and wellbeing by working with the body's own wisdom to find out what is the cause of ill health and disease. Practitioners don't diagnose or treat specific problems and use a type of bio muscular feedback to find the areas in the body where communication has broken down and then bring the body back into balance using tapping. Once blocks are shifted, the body can then use its own remarkable resources to bring about permanent change in health and wellbeing.
Wednesday 25th May
with Wayne Lee
In this talk and demonstration, self-taught spirit-surgeon, psychic and trance medium Wayne reveals to you some amazing discoveries taught by the doctors and surgeons he channels during sessions.
Working entirely using his connection with spirit and the understanding they have given him he is able to explain what he is doing as he works.
Wayne says "When I meet a client everything that happens before and during a session has meaning to me. It is as if their energy, aura, and body are talking to me. Certain areas of the client's body will jump out at me and I know I need to work at these points. I work for the "highest of good beyond my understanding with total integrity". I do not know why, but I always seem to make changes in people."
This will be an inspiring and interesting demonstration. Wayne will be demonstrating on willing members of the audience.
Wednesday 1st June
THE METAMORPHIC TECHNIQUE
with Beverley Dawson
The Metamorphic Technique is a simple approach to self- healing and personal development. We all have great potential, but due to limiting beliefs that we hold aboout ourselves and our lives,we tend to get ourselves caught up in paritcular patterns that keep us from fully realising our potential. These patterns can show up in various ways- physical or mental illness, emotional problems, limiting attitudes or repeating patterns of behaviour.Beneath these external symptoms are corresponding patterns of energy. This technique acts as a catalyst to this energy (also known as the life force), gently enabling you to transform your patterns and begin to move from who you are, to what you can be...

THE SERPENT'S TALE: FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT
with Annabel Du Boulay
Author and therapist Annabel Du Boulay shares the philosophy explored in her historical novel The Serpent's Tale, which she developed during her recovery from depression and addiction, as well as from the challenging experience of mothering two children born with life-threatening syndromes. This philosophy is based on the Myth of Sophia, which teaches us that darkness is not separate from light, and that it is within the darkest times of our lives, when we experience deep pain, loss and fear, that the light of rebirth can guide us towards greater wisdom, strength, love and compassion. It is a philosophy that helps us to accept and surrender to life's challenges, trusting in ourselves and in life that every seemingly negative experience is an opportunity for us to heal, learn and grow. Following her talk, Annabel will lead the audience on a healing guided visualization to speak with the archetype of Wisdom-Sophia.
Wednesday 15th June
PSYCHOLOGY OF SELVES
with Jo Macrae and Pia Kruithof
Psychology of Selves, (or Voice Dialogue), is based on the concept that our personality is made up of many different parts, some of which we accept and express in our lives, and others that we may not even know about.
Every moment of everyday we are acting according to the beliefs and rule systems of these various 'selves', though we are usually not aware of it. Through Voice Dialogue we begin to develop a central position, called Aware Ego, from which to interact with our various selves.
As we gradually reclaim the parts of us that we had been excluding, (along with learning to value the more familiar ones), and integrate them all more fully, we find we have a much more extensive range of inner resources as well as more clarity and choice in our lives and relationships.

CELLULAR AWAKENING - HOW YOUR BODY HOLDS AND CREATES LIGHT
with Andy Baggott
Our human potential is far greater than we can possibly imagine and is intrinsically linked to what is unfolding within us at a cellular level. When a cell is illuminated, the DNA within is also illuminated giving us access to the universal and ancestral wisdom that is held within its matrix. By matching our microcosm (the cell) with the macrocosm (universal energies) we begin to unlock our true nature and realise our potential for greatness.
Andy Baggott is a healer, a spiritual teacher, and the author of thirteen books. He runs a busy healing practice, lectures and teaches and has over 20 years experience of showing people how to heal themselves and create the life of their dreams.

MUSIC ESSENCES - A HEALING JOURNEY THROUGH THE CHAKRAS
with Katalin Kertesz
Katalin has created 32 vibrational essences from the solo violin music of J.S.Bach. They appear to work as tools to support the joyful process of becoming more conscious of our experience as human beings, and thereby inspire healing and transformation.
During the evening there will be the opportunity to tune into the music behind 8 essences, played live by Katalin, with a meditative focus on the chakras. We will explore 'full body listening' - a state of expanded awareness, sensing where in the body the music resonates - and experience the gentle healing power and pure inspiration of Bach's music.

Wednesday 3rd August - CANCELLED DUE TO BEREAVEMENT
REDISCOVERING AVEBURY HENGE AND THE EARTH FORCE
with Maria Wheatley
Avebury is a regional power centre which holds many secrets. At specific times of the year the Sun and Moon interact with certain stones creating mysterious shadow lines and also linear lines of intense bright light, which were used in past rituals. Intriguingly, surrounding stone circles and mounds were aligned upon these light/yang and shadow/yin lines which can extend for miles and possibly inspired the ley line phenomena.
Powerful earth energies were also integrated into Avebury's megalith architecture which are absorbed and transmitted by the standing stones - the electromagnetic frequencies of which were recently detected by sensitive electronic equipment. Further investigations revealed that when megalithic or earth energy is contained, by constructing certain stylised monuments, paraterrestrial activity causes mind-altering affects, time-lapses, and spirit manifestations. Maria describes which earthen and stone structures were designed to produce paraterrestrial affects and how to recognise and interact with the Earth Force within Avebury's timeless landscape.

Peak Experiences and New Existentialism: Maslow and Colin Wilson
with Paul Weston
Abraham Maslow discovered that people from all ages, genders, and backgrounds reported "peak experiences". He believed they can be prepared for but can't be induced to order. We have primal desires for food, shelter, and breeding. If they are met, there is another dynamic that arises and also requires urgent fulfilment. He called it "Self-Actualisation".
Colin Wilson in his Outsider series had railed against the sense of doom and despondency that characterised European cultural thought. It led to people feeling passive, insignificant, and unable to lead a happy life or make a difference in the world.
The two men became friends and this led to Wilson writing New Pathways in Psychology. Where he diverged from Maslow was in his belief that we don't have to wait for the peak experiences. We can cultivate them as part of intentional self-actualisation, a kind of new existentialism.
Paul lives in Glastonbury, the mystical capital of Britain. He is the author of Avalonian Aeon, Aleister Crowley and the Aeon of Horus, and Mysterium Artorius. With a background in Reiki, Psychic Questing, the Fellowship of Isis, Druidry, ... and a wide variety of western and eastern paths, his frequent lectures cover extensive and often unique ground.

"I believe that we live at a very crucial moment in humanity's transformation, and I want you to move beyond the old paradigm and discover your power, your freedom.

THE SHIFT IN CONSCIOUSNESS
with Prue Elkington
From polarity consciousness to unity consciousness, but what exactly does that mean? We currently have the opportunity to shift from a reality of survival, seperation, fear and judgment, into a reality of connection, abundance, faith, acceptance and love. We are moving out of the dark part of a cycle that has lasted for 13,000 years into the light part. We are waking up to our true powers and reconnecting to ourselves at the universal consciousness level.
Peace on earth is yours if you open your heart to it.
Insights, understanding and techniques that can easily be incorporated into your every day living reality.
Now is the time to live in peace.

TUNING YOUR DIAMONDS
with Julie Umpleby
Throughout history, ancient prophecy has predicted the turbulent times upon us now. Personal and global transformations are unfolding faster than we can possibly keep up with. Goal setting, to do lists? Forget about it! Feeling out of control, wobbling in your life? Get used to it. These changing times are placing heavy demands upon us: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
Would you like to align, blend and harmonize with these powerful incoming forces? The configuration of your personal energy field has a huge impact on the ability to maintain a degree of stability and peace in a hectic electromagnetic environment. Not only is it a vital aspect for spiritual growth, it also acts as a protective shield when correctly configured, calibrated and strengthened. The diamond field pattern can be found at the very heart of life itself, including our physical body, and acts as a powerful amplifier and organiser for the new cosmic energies. This fascinating talk will present up to date research and information confirming the importance of the diamond field as well as providing you with an amazing tool for support.
Julie Umpleby founded Diamond Light World as a vehicle for bringing the Diamond Light Grid information and practical applications to others. Armed with a science degree and psychology studies, she spent 17 years in a technical, corporate environment within various management roles, eventually engaging her passion for people by moving into studies and practices in holistic and bio-energy work. Following a number of spontaneous kundalini activations that began 13 years ago, she then began receiving information and experiences about the diamond, which continue to be validated as more scientific research comes to light.
Join us for this informative, entertaining and experiential evening.

JUICING FOR HEALTH
with Fiona Waring
Many of us have relatively compromised intestines as a result of poor food choices over many years. This limits our bodies' ability to absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables and juicing tends to facilitate this absorption.
Juicing makes it easy for your cells to assimilate these high quality nutrients to feed our cells. Juices are highly detoxifying and cleansing. They help repair damages to our cells, heal and nourish. No drug in this world can claim to heal except through what nature has provided us.
Vegetable and fruit juicing is also well suited for the fast moving lifestyle which we pride ourselves in here in the West. It makes it possible for busy people to add more healing foods into their diets with minimal effort.
This talk will discuss what type of vegetables you should start juicing with, the health benefits and all importantly what types of juicer to use.
Fiona Waring is a Nutritional Therapist with 12 years experience. Running a busy clinic in Dorset and Somerset. Fiona also runs Nutrition courses and talks regularly in Schools and other organisations on healthy eating. Passionate about her chosen profession. Fiona believes in making nutrition, understandable, enjoyable, practical and adaptable to an individual's lifestyle and needs. Empowering a person to heal themselves. Fiona aims to listen to what a person needs and treat the cause not just the symptoms.

Vicki Burke talks about her journey with sound healing with songs from her repertoire for voice and harp
with Vicki Burke
Vicki has worked with music as a teacher and performer all her life and entered the world of healing with Reiki, crystals and of course, sound, in 2000. As sound healing became the core of her work, she took up the harp in 2003 and began writing songs and integrating the harp within her Reiki sessions. Following a year with John Wadsworth's astrological 'Alchemical Journey' and Chloe Goodchild's 'Naked Voice' workshops, she developed her own project 'Keys to the Golden City' as a performance and workshop based on the understanding of these gifts. Working also with Tareth, a man who manifests the Earth's vibration as audible sound and understanding the importance of harmonics that take us to higher realms of being, she has learned to listen to the music and wisdom that we all carry inside ourselves, discovering that it's a beautiful journey we can all take.

The Power of Awareness
with John Gloster-Smith
It's that ability to get it, to really get it. Sounds obvious, but somehow it doesn't happen in practice.
So, how aware are you? In an age of transformational change, these are important questions to ask. There are in effect different levels of awareness. You might have a good level of everyday awareness but don't see those subtle behaviours that undermine you, or those patterns that keep holding you up from achieving what you most want from life. Or you might not be able to truly, authentically live from an awareness of All That and All There Is.
John's talk is about the huge potential in simply developing everyday awareness, what we already have but vastly under-utilise, illustrated by some awareness techniques that you can use on your own. This approach has an application in our everyday living, and for the unfolding of our spiritual potential.
John Gloster-Smith, BA, PGCE, AC-accred, NLP Master Practitioner, is a life and executive coach and a seminar leader and is author of "Connecting to Inner Peace".

Etching and Aches and Pains - 'My art and my experiences with complementary therapies'
with Janet Jordon
As you can deduce from the title, this is definitely a talk of two halves!
I have been an artist for many years and I will start by describing my favourite traditional printmaking technique, etching.
Next-My story; of how a sudden illness changed my life and introduced me to complementary therapies. I discovered strategies and treatments which meant that not only could I continue with my art career, but also I could help hundreds of other people.
One recent discovery that I have adopted is ground breaking, revolutionary and set to change the way we think about heath care forever!
It's strange how a life-changing event can send you off in a completely different direction. I feel as though my life's journey has been much influenced by chance remarks and meetings.
Following the talk, there will be an opportunity to experience the new futuristic health products.
Wednesday 26th October 2011
with Kiren Vanden-Bosch
IOn the fringe of Design science, somewhere between permaculture and engineering, there are advancements so powerful, so important and so rich, that only the small, independent and frugal can achieve them.
The power lies in the people, and if the people believe they are free – then the future belongs to everyone. If the power lies in the cooperation, and the people all work for it, then the future will shape only in the direction of the powerful.
Do we fall further? Or do we pull our grass roots up and get on with each other? How do we do that? Your probably doing it! But how does everyone do it?
If words like transition, technology, sustainability, industry, community, biomimicry, living systems, or fractals interest you – I hope for this talk to inspire.

The Galactic Maya
with Jon McCarthy
Self empowerment, through 13/20, the natural frequency which the "Galactic Maya" left us in the form of the Tozolkin, a 260day perpetualcycle, based on conception-to-birth, 260 days and 9mths, known as the inner calendar. I've followed this cycle for 15years and many insights birthed within me, that this tool decodes. The processed mind, through the activation of the individual imagination and the journey to your own inner time, where you are always in the right place at the right time, never late, never early and the processed mind lets go. There you've entered innertme, self empowerment. I will show the way to follow this cycle and will supply calendars and artwork inspired through this journey, to activate the talk.
Knowing your "Galactic Star "or a Cosmic Monkey" opens the rusty doors of ones imagination.
For this evenings talk you will need to find your Galactic Identity and bring the information with you-here's how to do it:
- Go to http://www.icandosomething.com/mayancalendar/
- Enter your name and date of birth
- It will then give your identity, glyph and lots of other very informative information which you should print out or copy down for the evenings talk.

THE APPLICATION OF EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE IN CANCER CARE
with Jenny Vestey
The use of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) as a therapy in conjunction with cancer care can help in managing symptoms either brought about by the disease and or the treatment. The diagnosis of cancer can have far reaching effects not only on the person involved but also on all close to them, be that family or friends. This impact can bring up issues both emotional and psychological.L
The treatment of cancer (either chemotherapy or radiotherapy) can also have its own issues involving physical side effects such as; anticipatory nausea, needle phobia and panic attacks.
Once the treatment is finished comes the fear that the cancer may return.
Emotional Freedom Technique is easy to learn, painless and has no side effects!
I have worked for the NHS as a complementary therapist at the Dorset Cancer Centre since 1995. Though I use other therapies, such as aromatherapy and reflexology I find EFT to be a most effective and powerful tool in the support of patients throughout their cancer journey.

THE NEW AGES OF MEN
with Nick Clements
A talk about male spirituality for men and women
Nick is an inspirational speaker, giving talks and running workshops, for over 30 years. Presently he is touring his new talk and workshop "The New Ages of Men" in Britain, Europe and America. In it, he documents the crisis in masculinity, arguing for a radical change away from the 'macho' towards a more emotionally intelligent alternative, without losing the risk-taking. The talk explores rites of passage as a means of creating identity for each age. Particularly looking at teenagers and the steps needed for the boy to become a man, and how indigenous peoples have retained this knowledge. He argues for 'generational intelligence' rather than our present 'peer initiation'. Explaining the age-old concept of eldership as a vital part of the process.
His workshops and talks use creativity as their foundation, particularly storytelling and poetry. They are moving, humorous, emotionally charged, and challenging. His enthusiasm and energetic delivery enables both women and men to explore the subject in a positive and open manner.
Since 1976, he has specialized in working with men, using rites of passage, focusing on redemption and the shadow. Trained as an artist and filmmaker, but using all forms of creativity, he has transformed the lives of tens of thousands of people. Employed by governments, local authorities and charities to work in prisons, on council estates, and with the disenfranchised. In addition he has lived with and been taught by indigenous people from every continent. Uniquely combining these two experiences he creates new rituals and ceremonies, and has become a leader in the exploration of masculinity, it's relationship to nature, spirit, and the female.

THE BOWEN TECHNIQUE
with Paula Brookes
Less is more!!
But let the results speak for themselves
A client flew through a windscreen at 100 miles an hour many years previously. After one treatment he "slept well and pain-free for the first time in years".
"It's the first time I've been without pain for five years."
… woman with back pain after a difficult childbirth.
The Bowen Technique is unlike any other therapy. It works on many levels and explanations can be complex.
I mainly work with backs and I give the following highly simplistic analogy/explanation:
Visualise muscles beginning just over the eyebrows and going all the way down the back and legs and finishing over the toes, interspersed with tendons.
Like a guitar string, wherever a move is made vibrates along the whole muscular length.
Usually skin slack is gently rolled over the muscle belly at anatomically precise points in the body. Just as in music there are pauses between groups of moves. This allows the mind/body to assimilate and integrate the experience.
Paula will be giving a demonstration of the technique at this evenings talk.

Neuro Linguistic Programming
with Ben Grassby
This a powerful and useful communication model that uncovers how we unconsciously use our minds to create our own reality, how we communicate that reality to influence ourselves and make decisions about how we will behave based on this 'map of reality'.

Ben Grassby is an INLPTA accredited trainer, therapist, coach and Master Practitioner of NLP, this will be a fun evening."
