  • 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.

    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.

  • The Gift of Our Dark Side

    Posted Nov 12th, 2011 By in Blog With | No Comments connectingwithourshadowselves

    Guest Post by Davina MacKail

    How do we manage to develop a dark side after landing on this planet in all our abundant glory?

    Watch any toddler. They can be happy, angry, sad, and giggling all in the space of a few minutes.  They don’t hold on to, or repress their feelings. They fully express themselves in the moment.  They exude 360 degrees of radiance.

    Then the trouble starts!

    As we grow, we get socialised into our cultural karma. We’re taught by our parents, teachers, neighbours and peers, the “right” way to behave.  We learn by direct communication and indirect influences, the differences between right and wrong – as imposed by our culture.

    Such messages as “boys don’t cry” or “good girls sit with their legs crossed,” become ingrained into our malleable young minds until they become part of how we are.  We learn quickly that certain behaviours get rewarded – and others get punished.  There will always be a small majority of escapees; the rebel drop outs and anarchists amongst us. But the majority of us opt for the easy life of reward for good behaviour.

    But those hidden aspects of ourselves don’t just disappear. They simply get tucked away, deep inside – repressed – or at least unexpressed. We’d be lying if we denied experiencing those emotions and feelings we may not publicly admit to; jealousy, anger, fear, vulnerability, guilt, shame – and a myriad others.

    Instead, these unacknowledged aspects show up in our external environment. The handy thing about living in a holographic universe is you get to see all of yourself mirrored constantly in everything around you.  This is especially true of our relationships; in particular those closest to us, and certainly in those who annoy us, or who we deem to be our enemies.

    Shadow relationships are instantly recognisable; even if we don’t always understand the reflected messages. They’re the ones who produce an excessive energetic reaction. The ones who make you feel out of control as your internal feelings conflict with your need to be well behaved.  Your cultured mind argues that you have no right to your negative emotions, but the churning in your stomach says otherwise.

    We don’t understand these emotions, and feel “bad” about having them; especially when the person isn’t really doing anything “wrong”. It’s just that their very existence irritates us.  As a result of our reward and punishment cultural conditioning, we tend to blame the person who’s “pushing our buttons.” It’s “their fault!” We’re just minding our own business!

    It’s an insidious plot – although it looks plausible.  Friends and family will offer their support.  People will take sides, and inflamed emotions will escalate; robbing us of our energy and creative power.

    Yet that person who’s irritating us is a huge gift. They are kindly mirroring aspects of ourselves that we’ve disowned or made unconscious. To paraphrase master psychologist Carl Jung, “Until we bring the unconscious – conscious – it will rule our lives and we will continue to call it fate”.

    By recognising and owning for ourselves the behaviours we see reflected in others, we experience the truth that there is no other and nothing goes one way.  This releases us to be more fully realised within our authentic selves.  Only then can we regain our creative energy and power and live the lives we were born to live.

    Wendy Price

    With over 30 years experience, Wendy is a pioneer in the practice and teaching of holistic approaches to horse riding and equine management.

    In the 1990’s, whilst searching for an effective approach to help her deal with a number of personal life challenges, Wendy discovered the powerful healing benefits of Metaphysics. Applying this knowledge to overcoming her fears around facing a show jump, she was delighted to meet with great success.

    This led her on to further valuable research in which she used the same techniques with her existing riding clients – again, with remarkable results. Her approach led to even greater success and her work has been featured in many magazines, national press and radio stations, including Radio 4′s ‘All in the Mind’.

  • Maggy Whitehouse – Living Abundantly

    Talk
    Wednesday 7th December 2011
    7.30pm-9.30pm

    The Road to Joy – is the Road Itself!

    We can’t ‘get there from here’ if every day is a struggle – whether it’s with happiness, relationships, finances or health.

    For many of us, understanding the Law of Attraction and following a spiritual path has helped our lives in many ways, but there are still blocks that don’t seem to want to be cleared. This is because we haven’t managed to engage the ego; the part of our brain with the job of keeping us alive and safe. The ego doesn’t want us to be happier or healthier because that would threaten all the unconscious beliefs that it has maintained for years. It has decreed a ‘Happiness Set Point’ that it will fight to maintain.

    We don’t want to annihilate the ego — without it we would forget how to walk or drive! — but we have to understand it, and engage with it, if we are to raise our Happiness Set Point to live a more abundant and productive life.

    Once we understand the vibrational differences between ego, self, soul and spirit, we can create and allow the mystical path of health, abundance and joy. Discover your ‘Happiness Set Point’ and how to raise it slowly, enjoyably, gently — and permanently.

    This talk with with Maggy Whitehouse, author of the bestselling From Credit Crunch to Pure Prosperity, will show you how to discover your ‘happiness set point’ and how to raise it slowly, enjoyably, gently — and permanently.

    Maggy provides simple, practical yet profound answers to the issues that may block us from living abundantly and following the life of our dreams. Maggy is a mystic for the modern world using ancient wisdom to demonstrate the inner path to an abundant life.

  • Davina MacKail – Discovering the Gift of your Shadow Self

    Posted Jul 20th, 2011 By in Archives With | No Comments connectingwithourshadowselves
    Workshop
    Saturday 19th November 2011
    10am-5pm

    During this powerful workshop you will discover the laws of living magically by learning to face, own and understand the gifts of your Shadow side.

    As children we are 360 degree radiance. However, we lose energy and power by disowning aspects of ourselves as we proceed through life.

    Based on ancient Shamanic practices, this workshop is designed to allow you to recognise and dance with your darker aspects and reclaim your power and truth.

    We have a light shadow as well as a dark one and we will explore how you can reclaim any disowned positive aspects of self as well as the negative.  In this way you can return yourself to wholeness and experience your true joy.

    This will be a practical, fun day that may prove challenging to some and will be a revelation to all.  The atmosphere will be safe and supportive to allow you to work deep within your own disowned psyche to fully claim back your power, your energy and your authentic expression.

    ***We are delighted to announce that Janey Lee Grace will be writing a feature for Spirit & Destiny Magazine based on Davina’s workshop this coming Saturday.

    This is great news for Naked Dragon and we want to share our good fortune by offering the remaining tickets to this workshop for the great price of just £45.00 - an amazing saving of £30.00 off the original ticket price of £75.00! ***
