  • Finding Sanity In An Insane World?

    Posted Feb 1st, 2012 By in Mind Body Spirit Event Reviews With | No Comments nd banner

    A Guest Post by Andy Dovey

    Most of us would agree that we are living in incredibly challenging times, but how do we live through them successfully?

    What are the ‘impacts’ on us (emotionally, physically and socially) and what affect does this daily bombardment have on us?

    How can we mitigate the damage on ourselves from all these stimuli to our minds, bodies and souls?

    Russell Leak and I will be addressing all these questions (and much, much more!) at our Naked Dragon event on Wednesday 15th February – me through words in the form of a talk, and Russell through the medium of music in the form of his songs.

    As a practising clinical hypnotherapist, I have seen an growing number of clients of the past 5 years or so, who are experiencing increasing levels of stress and anxiety, the root cause of which is often fear – fear of losing a job, fear of not having enough money, fear of losing a home, etc. We are also subject to an environment of fear that may (or may not) be real – terrorism, war, pandemics, etc.

    The net result of all this is an almost constant stimulus of our adrenal systems (the flight-or-fight response) which has a number of profound effects on the individual, everything from compromised immune systems to chronic fatigue, and much more.

    My hypothesis is that we are not able to evolve fast enough as a species to cope with the world we live in, and this is placing us under more and more pressure that we are not designed to endure.

    So, what can we do about this? Come along on 15th February and find out!

    During the evening I will also look at how the world really works, taking a peek behind the veil that is projected to us via the media and government, to see how it really works and how we can maintain our sanity in an increasingly insane world.

    There will also be a demonstration of how everyone can use self-hypnosis to benefit themselves and reduce stress and anxiety.

    The event will be in 2 halves…

    My talk will be first, starting at 7.30pm. When everyone has had enough of me (☺) there will be an interval of about 15 minutes, and then Russell will start his Music/Life/Spirit/Love section, linking with some of the themes I will have been talking about.

    Russell is an incredibly talented songwriter and musician and, using modern technology, is able to be a true one-man-band. As a musician myself, I will join him occasionally on drums and percussion. Before playing each song, he will talk about the theme of the song, where his inspiration came from and the meaning of the song, so giving each piece a unique context that many listeners never experience.

    If all this sounds a bit ‘heavy’, yes it is in parts, but we guarantee there also will be a lot of fun and laughter as both of us don’t take ourselves too seriously! Amongst the sober facts there will be many lighter moments of banter, self-deprecation and audience participation.

    So, come along for some enlightenment, some fun and be prepared to get involved!

    Surviving The Chaos of the 21st Century through the Four Cornerstones of…
    Music • Life • Spirit • Love

    We are going through a period where the ‘environment’ we inhabit in the developed world is changing at an ever increasing pace (without doubt the fastest rate of change in the history of our species) mainly driven by the rapid rate of technological change.

    All of the factors we have to contend with  – economic pressures, material needs, physical stresses, mental stresses – are being thrown at us in greater measure year after year.  This places us in an almost constant state of adrenal fatigue with our ancient, animalistic flight-or-fight reflexes being stimulated many times every day.  This is very bad news for our long-term physical and mental health.

    During this event, we will look at how…and why…we have got to where we are, and – most importantly – provide practical and spiritual advice on how best to combat the effects of the bombardment we are under so that we can maintain our physical and mental health to an optimum level and lead lives that are more contented, more fulfilled, and more true-to-ourselves.

    Surviving the Chaos – PART ONE

    During this first part of the evening,  Andy Dovey will discuss:
    How We Are Wired – a quick overview of brain function and how our emotional responses work

    What Is Healthy Or Unhealthy? – a look at our mental & physical health in the 21st century

    Avoiding Being ‘Programmed’ – discover how we are all ‘conditioned’; see it happening and how to deal with it

    Use of Language – how we deceive ourselves with misuse of language and how to avoid this

    Raising Your Self-Awareness – an honest stare in the mirror to see what others see

    Finding Out Who You Really Are – the person you ‘present’ to others versus the real you

    Using Self-Hypnosis – a demonstration of the benefits

    Staying Healthy – what sorts of emotions and behaviour are beneficial

    Surviving the Chaos – PART TWO

    During the second part of the evening, Russell Leak will combine the spoken word, popular songs and songs from his own album, “Smile” to explore the Four Cornerstones of our existence…
    Music • Life • Spirit • Love

    Music – Have you felt yourself soften at the sound of a chord or a melody?  Have you remembered something or someone with the sound of a song?  Sometimes music communicates better than anything else.  Russell talks about his relationship with music, how it has helped him and sings and plays songs that reach the heart and communicate where words fail.

    Life – Life is hard, and once you accept that fact, it isn’t hard anymore!  But does it really have to be so hard?  Can we change our relationship to life so that we can understand it better, so that we can live more fully and so have a more enriching experience of life?

    Spirit - Death is the end of life . . . or is it?  Russell explores what spirituality means to him as he shares his investigation of many different religions and expressions and discusses how we can best honour those who have left us.

    Love – “What is love?”  A question that has failed many of the best thinkers. Russell explores what love could mean to us, our resistance to it, our need for it – and why there are so many songs written about it.

    Talk
    Wednesday 25th April 2012
    7.30pm-10pm

    Happiness is an Energy you can Create from the Inside-Out

    Imagine a life where you were able to self-manage how you feel.

    A life where by taking simple steps each day you can shift from feeling ok…

    …to feeling good…

    to feeling fantastic!

    Well the simple answer is – you can!

    During this inspirational talk, John will explain how to increase your energy vibration and take the action you need to manifest your dreams.

    John has discovered 9 Elements which, when brought into your life will do exactly that. Based on his experiences as a Business Troubleshooter, he found that these 9 Elements when applied to his clients lives made such an improvement to how they felt that their personal and business life benefited amazingly.

    “These 9 Elements lift your energy vibration, make you happier, and help you to find and live your life’s purpose”

    YouTube Preview Image

    These practical steps form the foundation to a philosophy of life John calls “The Way”

    The Way brings your mind, body and spirit together as one, helping you to be the person you were meant to be and live a life filled with happiness and flow.

    “How you Feel is…How you Live your Life”

    John’s teachings can easily be incorporated into your life. Just by having the awareness of how these elements directly affect how you feel can have life changing effects and result in you living a happier life.

    “A Life Where You Get to Self Manage How You Feel…and Grow Happiness from the Inside-Out”

  • Tim Freke – WOW! I’m Alive!

    Talk
    Wednesday 20th June 2012
    7.30pm-10pm

    The Mystery Experience
    This is an evening for explorers!

    If that sounds like you, then join philosopher Tim Freke on an exhilarating  journey into ‘ The Mystery Experience’.

    Learn to think paralogically and discover how we can embrace both Science and Spirituality.

    Become ‘deep awake’.

    Know the ‘deep self’.

    Feel the ‘deep love’.

    Celebrate your life!

    Wake up to Wonder and Love your Life!

    Tim invites you to immerse yourself in the wonder that spontaneously arises when we become conscious of the breathtaking mystery of existence.

    This life-transforming experience is traditionally described as ‘Spiritual Awakening’. Tim calls it simply ‘The Mystery Experience: A revolutionary new approach to spiritual awakening’.

    When we dive deeply into The Mystery Experience we enter a new state of consciousness. We find ourselves knowing something that changes everything. There’s an awe-inspiring oneness with the universe, an ecstatic feeling of limitless love, and an exhilarating passion for the adventure of life.

    Tim has spent his life exploring  The Mystery Experience and he can guide you directly to it.  He encourages you to explore his revolutionary new approach to spiritual awakening and taste this deep awake state for yourself!

    Tim Freke’s work is an open door inviting one and all into the Mystery.

    Ram Dass, author of Be Here Now

    All I can say is WOW! I was totally absorbed, stunned and knocked out by the sheer beauty of the book. It’s not a word I use very often, but this is a work of genius. A real tour de force.

    Peter Gandy author of The Jesus Mysteries

    In this remarkably erudite, yet delightfully easy-to-read book, my esteemed friend Tim addresses the very heart of the imponderable mystery of existence, kits you up with all the equipment you need for the journey to reach it, along with one of the clearest maps available, wraps it all up neatly and gives it you as a present you’ll cherish forever.

    Barefoot Doctor, author of The Message

    Tim Freke is a unique voice in contemporary spiritual teaching.  He is a hugely entertaining twenty-first century street-wise commentator. At the same time he has a deep understanding of human spirituality and is one of the most well-versed scholars of the world’s religions.

    William Bloom, author of The Power of Modern Spirituality

    Thank you Tim, for being a pioneer, a guide, and a teacher par excellence. Read this book and travel the journey into yourself to find the mysterious in every moment of ordinariness.

    Ed and Deb Shapiro, authors of Be The Change

    Tim also hosts a number of residential retreats in the UK and overseas. For details of his Summer Residential Retreat in Glastonbury in June 2012 – please click HERE

  • Dr David R Hamilton – Change Your Thoughts: Change the World!

    Posted Jan 23rd, 2012 By in Archives With | No Comments thinkers
    One-Day Workshop
    Sunday 24th June 2012
    10am – 4pm

    Discover your Choice Points and Align your Purpose!

    Join Dr David R Hamilton for this life-changing workshop as we discover our ‘Purpose’ and explore the succession of ‘Choice Points’ we are faced with throughout our daily lives.

    The decisions we make at each of these ‘points’ affect not only our own lives, but the lives of those around us…and ultimately the world at large.

    Today we will be reminded of how to live more mindfully and to make more conscious choices as we begin to recognise the possible consequences of the choices we make.

    Choices that Align with our Purpose are the most empowering choices that we can make – for ourselves – and for those we love.

    We will work on being more open to change, understand how reality has a flow, and explore the ways in which your own personal environment is a mirror of our heart and mind.

    We will also have the opportunity to set some goals and learn some simple tools for achieving them.

    The world is facing multiple “choice points” at this moment in history. Individuals are making choices to change their nations, nature is giving us a wake-up call, economies are struggling, and for many of us the future looks uncertain.

    Yet people are also rallying to make choices and to have a voice; awakening from their apathy of previous decades. Each of us has the potential to be agents of change, and Choice Point is a film that endeavours to be an agent of change itself.

    This film sends a message of hope. As so many great philosophers have said, “change starts with the self, and then ripples out to have a positive effect on the world.” Greater personal well-being translates into greater well-being for all of us.

  • Mike George – The Mythology of Love

    Posted Jan 23rd, 2012 By in Archives With | No Comments bannerlove

    Inspirational Talk
    Wednesday 11th July 2012
    7.30pm-10pm

    Undoing the Illusions, Confusions and Delusions about Love

    Possibly the two most frequently spoken words each day are ‘I love’.

    We are quick to say, “I love this”, or “I love that”.

    However, in such moments we don’t realise that we don’t mean ‘love’, we mean something else.

    This can range from desire to possession and from fear to sadness.

    Yes, we really can be that confused about love!

    It’s this loss of meaning accompanied by the many myths about love that ensures we may never know true love in our entire life!

    Intuitively we all seem to know that love has many faces including care and compassion, acceptance and appreciation, giving and forgiving.

    Yet we are aware of how quickly they turn into resentment and animosity, guilt and regret.

    Is this because we don’t know real love, can’t yet be truly loving or won’t allow our self to be a source of love to others?

    Or is it just human nature to hateful, hurtful and hopelessly unable to tolerate others?

    There is perhaps only one true pilgrimage in life and that is to rediscover the true meaning of love and the right ways to live lovefully!  

    “Infinite and yet indestructible, it is only when you understand LOVE that you will fully understand your life. Unlimited and yet invisible, it is only when you know LOVE that you will know how powerful you really are.”

    During this evening’s talk Mike will:

    • Show us how to see through the illusions we are all taught about love
    • Dispel the many myths that we all assimilate every day about love
    • Bring clarity to our ‘relational confusions’ about love
    • Reveal why love can be just too difficult for some and almost impossible for others
    • Explore why love is so often mistaken for sweetness and light!
    • Expose the real reason why the big wide world ‘out there’ tends to be a loveless place
    • Invite us to wonder why romance can kill intimacy and chase love away!

    Mike is a best selling author, inspirational speaker and spiritual teacher who, for the last thirty years, has been coaching, guiding and facilitating the personal and executive development of people in companies, corporations and communities in over 30 countries. His publications include The 7 AHA!s of Highly Enlightened Souls, Don’t Get MAD Get Wise and his latest book is The 7 Myths About LOVE…Actually!.  (www.relax7.com)

    Harmony for Body and Mind

    About Shiatsu

    Shiatsu is relaxing bodywork to restore your natural balance. Meaning “finger-pressure” in Japanese, Shiatsu uses the same system of pressure points as Acupuncture but without the needles, and integrates gentle movements and stretches.

    It is an effective and enjoyable way to treat neck and back pain, to ease muscular tension and to improve joint mobility. Shiatsu also helps to relieve many common complaints, both physical and emotional, and promotes the smooth flow of energy (“ki” or “chi”) in the body. It teaches you to reduce and manage stress and promotes deep healing relaxation.

    Shiatsu is received fully clothed lying on a comfortable floor mat which gives support as well as space for movement. Shiatsu is suitable for practically everyone and is a nurturing way to support women throughout pregnancy and after labour.

    An hour’s treatment costs £50 and includes a consultation. Shiatsu treats the individual needs of each person so every treatment is unique.

    Just lie down, relax and let go of your stress.

    Cost

    An hour’s treatment costs £50 and includes a consultation.

    Shiatsu treats the individual needs of each person, so every treatment is unique.

    About your Practitioner – Liz Kendall DipAS, LicZSS

    My practice is based in Cobham at Optima Health on Church Street, and I also give treatments at St Michael’s Sanctuary in Ewell. I give seated treatments in offices to promote good health and wellbeing in the workplace. I take part in special events around Surrey, giving short seated treatments to introduce people to Shiatsu.

    I appreciate the versatility of Shiatsu which values the individual and responds to the moment to benefit the whole person. I enjoy exploring meditation from the Tibetan Buddhist and Taoist traditions, and can bring simple meditations into the treatment should you wish.

    I completed my three years’ practitioner training with the Zen School of Shiatsu in London and am registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council. I offer free phone consultations, so please do contact me if you have any questions about Shiatsu and I’ll be happy to help.
