Balancing Chakra course - The story so far

It is now week 5 of our course Balancing Chakras using Art and Aromatherapy and every lesson has been powerful ranging from gentle cradling energy to pure feminine energy.

This course has been a very j powerful journey all I can do is watch in awe of the magick that surrounds me.  There has been miracles along the way and this does not happen to everybody.   The commitment undertaken by women has been met with rewards by the universe, for example; for one particpant has renewedher belief in life, another has a job offer that suits her business and

The artwork that the participants have created has been phenomenal this week we create our own Oracle / Affirmation cards. 

But don't take my word for it see the pictures below and join us in June when we run the new course.

When I realised I was fearless

(I was fronting)

(On being fearlessly courageous (part 1)

This past weekend I participated in Open artist studios in South London and I was fronting!


I thought I was ok until I spoke with a fellow artist (who at the age of 60 decided to take up painting), I realised that I was terrified of how the visitors would respond to my work.

I have had my first solo show back in March, however this was from the requests of people who I knew admired my work, and not complete strangers.  I realised I cover up my fears with being busy and I hardly acknowledge that little girl inside, who is often very fearful and vulnerable. 
 
So as it was a New Moon and I am letting go, I decided to drop the mask and I let my vulnerable self and my work be seen to the public.  Being vulnerable is something that was not really celebrated in my childhood home; vulnerability and mistakes ( for various reasons mainly due to time, money and culture) so I just got on with it.  This weekend I gave myself permission to be this way and I allowed myself to receive feedback about my work as long as it was constructive. 


The weekend was filled with a lot of love and appreciation for my work.  However the real shift was thatI did it! I became fearless through my own self-awareness, care and vulnerability.

Les Bohemes Retreat in St Lucia

It has taken me a while to write this blog post because how could I put into word the amazing experience I had as a Facilitator for the Les Bohemes retreat in St Lucia.

I was invite by this Creative and innovative retreat company to run a series of Creative Healing workshops for their October Wellness retreat.  I focused on Healing through Expressive Art. 

With‘Picture book’ breath taking views, amazing healthy organic food and wonderful participants, the retreat created a wonderful experience of sharing and allowing, and I know for a few people this experience will have an impact for a very long time.   Apart from the amazing food created , yoga classes and cooking lessons;  words cannot convey the experience because in this instance the pictures speak more than words ever could.

Working as a Facilitator and with clients for over ten years I realise that to get the best out of clients and participantsis to surrender with boundaries whilst allowing the experience to unfold.  Working withgroups allows me to learn more about other people and how they view the world (must be the anthropologist in me).  Stepping aside to allow othersto shine is one of the most important humbling, gracious and loving acts a Facilitator can do.
