Element Workshops

I will be running Element Workshops over 4 sessions from Eaton Bishop Village Hall throughout September on a Tuesday evening 6.15pm – 7.45pm. I would love it, if you could join me and treat yourself to some ‘me time’ this September.

We will be connecting with the four Elements – Earth, Water, Fire and Air and discover how they feature in your life and how you can draw new inspiration from them to  integrate into your everyday or creative life.

Each week a different element will be explored through embodiment, movement, dance, play and meditations within a small group.

I am a trained Dance Movement Psychotherapist and Movement Practitioner and will guide you through the session to allow you to explore, experiment and discover in a safe environment.

When?

Dates: 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th September 2018

Time: 6.15pm – 7.45pm

Where?

Eaton Bishop Village Hall, Hereford, HR2 9QW

Cost?

£40 for all 4 sessions to be paid prior to the first session

Booking is essential, as places are limited.

To book a place:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/elements-workshop-tickets-49127744406 or contact me using the below form to book your place or if you have any questions.

Questions you may have:

Do I need any dance experience? No, not at all. It is about connecting with the movements that your body authentically creates, rather than a specific dance technique.

Do I need to wear anything in particular? I recommend wearing comfortable clothing that doesn’t restrict your movements. You may choose to go barefoot or wear soft shoes with a sole, so that you don’t slip.

Do I need to bring anything in particular? A bottle of water and a mat or blanket is all you require.

Thank you for your time and please do get in touch if you have any questions or feel free to forward this email on, if you think you may know someone who might be interested.

Time for self = transformation

Having a holiday and time off work  has allowed me to connect with myself and connect with my purpose again.

Transformation ….transformation…transformation…. is the common thread throughout my own life, but also in the lives of so many people I have come in contact with over the past 20 plus years. Giving family members, friends and students nudges and support when and where needed to guide them into a direction in which I can sense they will find themselves, flourish and create a positive contribution to the world – and seeing the individuals progress on their journey with contentment gives me great joy. Our lives come together for a short period of time for ‘my work’ (not that it ever feels like it is work) to be done and then we drift apart again.

For some time now I have been wanting to share what I have learned over the past years that has helped me feel enjoyment and fulfillment in my life, but I had not found the right format. During my morning run,  the format of how to share what I want to share suddenly came to me and now that I know what it is, it feels pretty obvious – and that is the beauty of it – it is simple and it is in the format that I know so well – the format I have been working with for years – Group workshops.

My aim is to allow people to have time to connect with themselves in a safe space and explore the elements, which may turn into a transformative experience for the individual.

Like my run this morning – giving myself time to be with myself, connecting with the element of fire (the sun was shining!) being with and becoming aware of  my body allowed me to figure out how to progress with something in my life I have been wanting to do for a very long time.

I want people to have the opportunity to see their lives through four different lenses by exploring the elements: earth, water, fire and air.  Exploring the role that these play in their lives and hold a space in which they have permission to experiment with new ideas in a safe space that will allow for blocks to be shifted or confusion be shifted into clarity. By raising a bodily/ embodied perspective on life, new solutions can be found and integrated into everyday life that result into transformation.

So watch this space everybody, as the workshop content is forming very quickly and venues and dates are already being explored. Can’t wait to run the workshops!
