AWAKENING THE HEALER WITHIN (PART 1 - BEGINNERS)
JULY 29-30, 2017, BAINTON READING ROOMS, NEAR STAMFORD, LINCS -

If you've ever been interested in energy healing, or working with spirit guides and 'power/totem animals' to benefit yourself and others, this beginners' weekend is the perfect introduction for you.

Whether you've trained in, or experienced, reiki, meditation, reiki drumming, or even spiritual healing before now, this non-residential weekend is the ideal next step to learn about healing from the shamanic perspective.

The workshop will teach basic shamanic healing techniques, including detecting energy imbalances, blessing work and energy retrievals. It will also teach you how to protect your own e
nergy body, so you won't absorb energies from the outside world. If you've ever felt worn out, or found that other people's moods affect your own energy levels and outlook, it's probably because you haven't known how to 'shield' yourself effectively.

Regardless of whether you want to come along and learn some of the healing basics, or come along to soak up the positive energies and maybe even receive a 'healing' or two, if you have an open heart and mind you will be welcome.

This weekend can be taken as a standalone course, or as part of a series of healing workshops throughout the year.


NB: This is a practical, experiential workshop and does NOT qualify/certify attendees to become professional healers.

Workshop is non-residential, though there are plenty of reasonably-priced places to stay nearby.


COST: £135 (includes non-refundable £60 deposit). Full cost payable four weeks before the workshop. Please note: due to the limited numbers, if you choose to pay the full cost of this workshop in advance, you are committing to attend and your fee will be non-refundable unless you can find a suitable replacement to take your place and pay in full.

LIFE, DEATH AND BEYOND
NOVEMBER 18-19, 2017, BAINTON READING ROOMS, NEAR STAMFORD, LINCS - The cycle of life and death is probably one of the biggest taboo subjects in western culture, yet it's the one absolute certainty according to natural law - we are all born and we will all die.

This workshop is strictly for those with plenty of safe, sound shamanic journeying experience under their belt, together with good, strong relationships with their spirit guides and teachers.

COST: £135 (includes non-refundable £60 deposit). Full cost payable four weeks before the workshop.

SHAMANIC GLASS
Shamanic Glass medicine wheelShamanic Glass medicine wheelWEEKEND COURSE, DATES TBC. SPALDING, LINCOLNSHIRE -
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! Held in peaceful surroundings in the Lincolnshire countryside, workshops combining the art of stained glass making with Shamanic journeying are the perfect way to relax and unwind. Led by Shamanic crafter and workshop leader, Taz Thornton and craftswoman Gillian Wing, Shamanic Glass offers a unique way to connect with spirit and tap into individual creativity.

The day enables participants to unwind, relax, create and connect to the world around them while learning about the tradition of Shamanism and its relevance today. A guided Shamanic journey will take individuals to meet their power animal followed by a session in the stained glass studio creating a unique piece of stained glass art to take home. There will also be the chance to journey to the energy of the glass creations in a group exercise.

Taz Thornton explains: “Every time we run these workshops we're astounded by the amazing energies created through working with spirit, the elements and the beautiful colour vibrations.

"We've had so many people asking us to run more Shamanic Glass workshops, we decided to put on another event - bringing back those amazing Shamanic Glass energies one last time."

She adds: "Stained glass and Shamanism may seem like a rather unusual combination, but after working alongside Gillian and seeing just what beautiful pieces of colourful art can be created, we soon realised that bringing the two together offered a unique chance to tap into the old ways and reconnect with spirit."

Gillian Wing adds: “As with most kinds of craft work, stained glass art can teach us so much about ourselves and the world around us. Not only does it focus the mind, but it enables us to be ‘in the moment’ - something in today’s Western society we often struggle to achieve.”

Workshop runs 10am to 5pm each day and is limited to eight people. Places cost £120 and include light refreshments (tea, coffee and biscuits) and basic materials. Participants are asked to bring a packed lunch.
