    The Magic of Tao

    The wonderful Tao Porchon-Lynch is celebrating being ninety-nine years young this year and as part of her celebrations, we are delighted that she is coming to Naked Dragon’s beautiful Kew venue this July to teach 2 x Exclusive Yoga Classes and to share some stories of her amazing life as she inspires us with her Zen approach to life and living well.

    There is Nothing You Cannot Do!

    Tao believes that there is ‘Nothing You Cannot Do’ and her life is a great testament to this belief.

    Her wonderful words of wisdom, combined with her amazing outlook on life, have inspired many thousands of her fans from around the world with their beauty and simplicity.

    Tao has been practising yoga for over 70 years and has been teaching yoga to students in India, France and the U.S for more than 45 years. In 2012, Tao earned the Guinness World Record for the ‘World’s Oldest Yoga Teacher’.

    At (almost) ninety-nine years young, Tao is the embodiment of many profound Yoga principles and exemplifies the positive “can-do spirit” that can accomplish anything.

    A Colourful Life

    Tao was born in Pondicherry, India in 1918. Sadly, she lost her mother during childbirth and her early years were spent growing up with her French uncle and Indian aunt in India where she learnt her first yoga moves from the boys on the beach!

    Tao has lived an incredibly colourful life, marching with Gandhi (who was a friend of her uncle’s in India) when she was 12 years old and she was a friend of Marilyn Monroe’s during Tao’s modelling days in the 1950’s.

    She has given TED Talks, appeared on America’s got talent and following a double hip replacement at the age of 80, she took up competitive ballroom dancing which has subsequently taken her all around the world where she has won numerous medals and awards.

    In 2011, Tao was a workshop presenter with Dr. Terri Kennedy at the Newark Peace Conference and sat on the Panel for Peace with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Deepak Chopra MD amongst many other greats.

    Tao’s Quotes

    •           I have no fear
    •           There is nothing we cannot do if we harness the power within us
    •           I’m going to dance my way to the next planet
    •           I don’t believe in age ~ I believe in energy
    •           I believe that the power of the universe is right inside me
    •           The idea is to die young ~ As late as possible!

    The Pure Sound Journey

    Thurs 3rd Aug
    7.30pm – 10pm
    (Doors Open 7pm)

    A Powerful Healing Sound Experience

    Sika on StageSika’s Pure Sound Journey’s are extremely popular worldwide due to their effectiveness in bringing people into a deep, deep state of relaxation.

    Enabling people to move through obstacles within themselves, Sika’s sound journeys invoke healing and profound transformations that can be carried into day-to-day life.

    Using a selection of Didjeridoo, Drum, Flute, Taonga Puoro (Singing Treasures) and other instruments from around the world, Sika takes us on a timeless Pure Sound Journey.

    In this beautiful dream state, the sounds he plays are truly primal and remind us of our ancient story.

    The Pure Sound Journey

    The Pure Sound Journey is for those who want to experience a deep and profound inner process.

    Lying down or sitting up, closing your eyes and relaxing on your yoga matt with a blanket or on a chair, you will experience the power of primordial sounds as Sika bathes you in a sea of Pure Healing Sound.

    Using his voice and a wide range of instruments; including Didgeridoo’s in different tunings, Hoop Drums, Rattles and Native Flutes, you will experience the vibrations and effects of sound passing over and close to your body.

    This simple, but incredibly ancient practice enables a profound shift to occur on subconscious instruments-newprogramming and cellular levels. The remarkable effects of this journey are often so powerful, as to initiate life changes in people, animals and even places.

    This personal and group intention to ‘improve’ reaches spiritual proportions and enriches not only our own life but also others. It is therefore a form of giving back to the world in gratitude and awareness.


    Sika, is an international artist, who has been facilitating similar groups for over twenty-years, using pure sound to journey into higher consciousness.

    He is endorsed by three Aboriginal elders of the Yuin and Bidjura People of South Australia and his sound journeys are always a very deep and powerful experience for people.

    sika1Sika Says…

    I feel like an ancient time traveller, a pilgrim moving with the rhythms of the land. I feel honoured to walk this way, to carry the Taonga of this beautiful land and whisper of the secrets to those who will listen.

    It is full moon the night of our journey of sound. Slip with me into worlds within worlds, as we learn of our true nature.

    A Journey of Pure Sound takes us beyond what meets the eye.

    The instruments I play are my treasures. They give voice to stone, wood and skin. Their music expresses our close relationship with nature.

    Such music plays an important part in the rituals of everyday life. It breathes the spirit of our ancestors into todays world.”

  • Charlie Morley ~ Embracing the Shadow

    Posted Apr 16th, 2017 By in Events, Workshops With | No Comments Charlie with Masks
    A One Day Workshop
    Best Selling Hay House Author

    Sun 29th Oct 2017
    South Wales
    10am – 5pm
    (Doors Open at 9.30am)

    Embracing the Shadow

    The Shadow is the part of us that is made up of all that we hide from others. It hides our shame, our fears and our wounds. It also hides our divine spirit, our blinding beauty and our hidden talents.

    It is a huge source of power and creativity but until we bring it into the light this power will remain untapped and our full potential unreached.

    Using practical “how to” exercises sourced from Tibetan Buddhism, western psychology, Mexican shamanism, and of course dream work & lucid dreaming Charlie Morley takes us on an immersive journey deep into the dazzling darkness of spiritual transformation.

    Using Tibetan Buddhist meditations, dream work, mask and mirror practice, eye gazing, creative writing and lots more the workshop explores how to:

     • Meet, befriend and transform the shadow
    • Integrate the sexual, ancestral and golden shadows
    • Use lucid dreaming to embrace the shadow
    • Move from shame to authenticity
    • Drop the mask and step into your gold

    Based upon Charlie’ brand new book Dreaming Through Darkness this workshop will show you how to fearlessly embrace your shadow side with compassionate acceptance and manifest the awakened power of your full potential.

    The Masks That We Wear

    Tear off the Mask - Rumi

    Not only do we project our shadow onto others, we also project how we want to be seen by others. This is how we create our persona: the mask that we wear.

    The mask of our persona is indicative not only of the self-image that we present to others but also of what we hide from them. And as long as we keep hiding behind the mask of who we think we should be, we will never be free.

    Intergrating the Shadow

    Most of us put all our energy into avoiding admitting that we have any seemingly shameful shadow traits. We daren’t enter into the vulnerability of the human condition. This leads to a constricted, shame-based sense of who we think we are, which in turn makes it impossible to progress on the spiritual path. To embrace the shadow is to drop the mask and reveal our true face to the world.

    Dreaming through DarknessWhen considering shadow integration, the pioneer of Archetypal Psychology, James Hillman, thought of it as a problem of love and asked us to contemplate: ‘How far can our love extend to the broken and ruined parts of ourselves, the disgusting and perverse?’ We have a choice: to keep letting shame make us feel unworthy of love or to consciously witness, and perhaps even reveal, our shame with compassion.

    To really make progress, we have to do something that may seem quite paradoxical: we have to accept the parts of ourselves that we dare not show and learn to love our Magnificent Messiness.


    Please note that VERY EARLY BIRD tickets for this event – priced at just £55.00 – will be very limited, so please book your place asap to avoid disappointment.

    Snow in the Street

    Join the fabulous Lucinda Drayton and multi-instrumentalist Marcus Cliffe at one of their favourite gigs of the year as they share their new Christmas themed album….Snow In The Street.

    Snow in the Street London

    Arranged by Marcus and given a magical new feeling, this is a collection of some of their best known carols and some little known traditional Christmas songs; plus a couple of original numbers.

    The Magic of Christmas

    Lucinda and Marcus both love Christmas and these songs mean a lot to them. Lucinda says that they remind her of family times; being with people she loves, lighting the fire, sledging when we are lucky enough to have snow, eating too much and walking to Midnight mass in Cornwall to sing and remember the birth of Christ.

    Black and White Fireplace

    So, come and have some quiet respite time before the madness of shopping and planning and cooking takes over. Let us be together and remember the real spirit of Christmas and what real giving is all about.

    Sacred Spaces

    Stained Glass Window Barn Church KewChurches have always held a special place in Lucinda’s heart having been in the Church choir as a child and she has always loved visiting sacred places all over the world.

    Dragon Love at First Sight!

    stone dragon brightAfter a long search, with many frustrating detours along the way, I was absolutely delighted when I eventually found the perfect venue to Launch Naked Dragon into my homeland of Wales in October 2015.

    As I drove along the winding country road that led me to my first glimpse of this glorious 10th century manor house, I could feel the tingling in my bones and even before I’d even switched off the car engine, I just ‘knew’ that this place would be ‘the one’!

    Walking towards the imposing front door with it’s fearsome stone winged protectors, I glanced up towards the pretty stone parapet to the side of the building and spotted the most magnificent winged dragon atop the curved bridge and it was Dragon Love at First Sight! 

    A Very Warm Welcome!

    With a wonderful twist of fate;  just I was about to enter the house, the door was opened for me by a charming (and rather handsome!) young man by the name of Ben Rosenburg.

    Introducing himself as the son of the current owners of Miskin Manor, who had purchased and lovingly restored the property in 1996, Ben kindly offered to show me around his beautiful home, including the magical Minstrels Gallery which will be our home for all of our forthcoming events at this stunning Country Hotel & Spa.

    Finishing our tour of the inside of the house, Ben introduced me to his parents, the wonderful Leah and Colin Rosenburg. Handing me over the care of his beautiful mother, Leah graciously completed the tour of the property by showing me around the glorious award winning gardens. As it turned out Leah is a huge fan of Hay House books and was very familiar with many of Naked Dragon’s regulars speakers which was a wonderful and unexpected connection!

  • Freedom Lifestyle Retreat ~ ITALY ~ 18th-25th October

    Posted Aug 6th, 2015 By in Archives With | No Comments Roman Villa Sija - Rome

    DARE To Join Naked Dragon in ITALY in Partnership with Nat & Jodie of Housesitting World to Mastermind & Action Your Freedom Income Ideas!


    Think of “Eat, Pray, Love” for a moment… In this best-selling book, author Elizabeth Gilbert told her own story of life transformation from mundane unfulfilment, to complete inner and outer freedom.

    It was a journey that commenced in Italy, indulging her senses in the rich culture, the decadent food and the romance of the language. Italy was the start of her story, a story that went on to inspire millions and has been adored by people from all over the globe.

    Would you like to redefine your own story, or perhaps start a new chapter in your life journey… and like Elizabeth, have it all start in Italy?

    This retreat has serendipitously come to fruition and therefore, no doubt this invitation has found its way to you for a reason. Maybe it is YOUR time this time…

    An Introduction to the Retreat from Nat & Jodie

    YouTube Preview Image


    So the question is, do you DARE to join us in Italy in October?

    Do you DARE to be relaxed and creatively inspired after spending 7 nights on a beautiful estate on the outskirts of Rome, soaking up the atmosphere of the flagship Villa Property of the StoryGardenz Project, surrounded by like minds, and indulging in the fresh Italian produce, lovingly prepared by the founder of Naked Dragon Events – Juls!

    Roman Villa Silj

    Do you DARE to master the ‘Art’ of lifestyle and life balance? Taking a morning meditation walk around the culturally rich gardens, practising some yoga, cruising around Rome City, reading your favourite novel by the pool – and flowingly mix it all with brainstorming, masterminding, overcoming any limiting beliefs, gaining clarity, and getting all your questions answered by experienced freedom lifestyle travellers?

    About the Retreat

    We will be spending 7 incredible nights in the unique Roman Villa Silj located just 9Km from the historic centre of Rome City. This property is home to the ‘StoryGardenz – Seeing Stories Project’ and has been specifically handpicked for the unique story it too possesses.

    The week will involve a mix of teachings, practical exercises, relaxation time, private sessions, masterminding, and casual chatting… probably with a glass of wine in hand!

    We ask you to bring your laptop (if you have one) to facilitate our work. Some of the sessions will be inside, but weather permitting we will aim to work outside as much as possible.

    We will be dining together (breakfast will be self-serve), with meals lovingly prepared by Naked Dragon CHEF JULS, who will also be joining us for sessions throughout the week.

    Chef Juls!

    We will also take some time during the week to explore the incredible city of Rome together… as a direct experience of what it is like to live a freedom lifestyle!

    Your Retreat Leaders
    Natalie Smith & Jodie Thompson

    As full-time international house sitters and travellers, with no home and no residency anywhere, Nat & Jodie know a thing or fifty about creating freedom and lifestyle!

    Jodie & Nat

    After a decade of ‘learning’ about consciousness, living a life they love, personal development, and wealth creation through seminars and books; for the past four years they have switched it up and actually gone out and ‘lived’ it, travelling the world together and creating an online business they absolutely love that provides them with more than enough income to continue their travels indefinitely…living their own version of a freedom lifestyle!

    But they did not start out by selling everything and having tons of money to commence their new travel lifestyle and business. In fact in 2012, after losing a business in Dubai and left with just $300 to their names (and no credit cards or savings to fall back on) they took a one way flight to London and started international house sitting as a means to save on rent and survive.

    Through applying what they had learned in their consciousness work, following their inner guidance and taking action, in just 18 months they have secured a $12000 coaching client and positioned themselves as the world’s experts in their niche of House Sitting.

    They have built a tribe of over 7000 house sitters and home owners, developed a Mobile Magazine App for iTunes & Android, created an online House Sitting Academy course, run a Live House Sitting Immersion Experience in Greece, worked JV’s and built strong relationships with other professionals in their niche, published a book, created a merchandise line launching soon, and after being interviewed in the media and on podcasts numerous times, they have now flipped roles to host their own podcast!

    All of these projects are WORLD FIRSTS within this niche!


    Nat & Jodie do not tell you their achievements to impress you, but rather to impress upon you the importance of collaboration (not competition). They want to inspire you to see what can be created from a single idea and achieved through masterminding at this retreat.

    They know with certainty that much of their success has come from mixing and networking with others who have walked before and with them on this journey, showing them new ways of thinking and being, and what is possible for our own lives.

    This retreat week is not about theory, it is about conscious and deliberate action towards creating your freedom lifestyle.

    And this is the only thing that truly matters at the end of the day!

    Nat & Jodie’s Recent Transformation

    Seth Godin BookA fellow digital nomad friend of Nat & Jodie’s whom you may have already heard of is Natalie Sisson ~ The Suitcase Entrepreneur.

    Natalie recently gifted the girls with a wonderful book written by Seth Godin called “What to Do When it’s Your Turn (and its always your turn)” whilst she was house sitting with them in Breckenridge Colorado earlier this year.

    It was the perfect book to read at the time as amongst the pearls of wisdom, it made them realise just how important story telling is in releasing the power within the actual story itself – both for ourselves – and for others…especially when you harness the power of your story, and do not hide behind it or feel guilty.

    Authentic telling of your story is the very thing that makes you unique, inspires people into action, and most importantly connects you to others.

    This book helped them to see the final piece of the puzzle by showing them that they were still holding onto guilty feelings around different parts of their story. They started to see that the ‘bad’ things that had happened were their most powerful stepping stones, and that these were the parts that people were most interested in because it makes us human, vulnerable and therefore relatable when sharing our story.

    The two months they spent in Colorado were literally life changing and although this book played a big part, the greater influence was actually spending time with inspiring full-time traveling entrepreneurs, masterminding with them, getting really creative with their thinking, and ‘spring cleaning’ their belief systems.

    The truth reflections and ‘possibility’ concepts these incredible people bought to them was all they needed to naturally shift those last residual limitations, taking their business, income, relationship, and life on a whole, to the next level.

    Since reading the book, brainstorming with their peers, and diving in deep to see what really excites them in life, they have unleashed their message; their true gift to share with the world… their ability to incite action and move you purposely towards your true freedom lifestyle… not just talk about it.

    And that’s what this retreat is all about!

    It’s about seeing your story, feeling it’s power for yourself and others, and then using it to unleash your unique passion within your idea or project. It is about the absolute exponential power and clarity that comes from like minds all collaborating on YOUR project… something that we can tell you first hand is priceless!
