    Q & A SESSION

    Leon StuparichLeon Stuparich – Director

    At the heart of the Dalai Lama’s message is “Universal Responsibility”. We all have a responsibility for our own well-being and the environment in which we live. From there we can create peace and harmony, but we need to start with ourselves. But it is my hope that Road to Peace shows The Dalai Lama as a living example of how we can all live a more loving and compassionate life and has captured his spiritual and humanitarian message for this and future generations.

  • Transformational Dog Retreats

    Posted Feb 20th, 2012 By in Spiritual Holidays & Retreats With | No Comments Lady and Dog in Nature landscape

    Happy Dogs = Happy Owners!

    The first specialised training and healing retreats for dogs and owners in the world!

    Taking You and Your Dog from Where You are Now - to Where You Want to Be.

    About

    Dogs are undoubtedly “Man’s Best Friend”…

    …but often our relationship with our pets aren’t everything they could be!

    With stressful behavioural habits, mis-understandings, or well-being issues being all too common in the modern canine – a new Dog and Owner Retreat in Wales aims to change this.

    Transformational Dog Retreats take a new and holistic approach to delivering outstanding results in dog training, well-being and care.

    Utilising a range of highly effective techniques; from energy balancing to animal communication and healing, the techniques are not only transformational for the dogs – but also for the owners!

    Whilst more traditional training and well-being methods work for some; many dog owners still have problems and are looking for something that will give them a better understanding of how their dog feels and what they can do to improve their confidence, behaviour and health in a more peaceful, natural and effortless way.

    Transformational Dog Retreats help dog owners develop a fresh perspective towards their dog training, care and ownership. During the retreats, owners are encouraged to discover new ways to transform their dog’s behaviour and well-being peacefully, by learning effective ways to move forward from the present moment of ‘NOW’ – to a future of peace, abundance, happiness and wonder!

    Founder of Transformational Dog Retreats, Caroline Griffith says: “Our wide range of holistic approaches to connecting with and then working with your dog to create a happy partnerships are highly effective and rewarding for both owner and the dog. Whether you are experiencing problems, or simply want to improve your bond and relationship with your dog – our retreats are the perfect place to come”.

    Dog & Owner Retreats

    Our retreats take place in the beautiful, relaxing Welsh Carmarthen countryside.

    Offering both dog and owner a peaceful, and well earned retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Dogs stay with their owners in individual rooms, with full board organic food and drink included.

    Over the course of four days, owners and dogs will be able to take in the stunning scenery, enjoy group dog walks, receive pampering therapies, healing treatments, and take part in training and workshops including :

    The Tellington TTouch
    Animal Communication
    Arts and Crafts and Dolphin Reiki
    – which even includes a boat trip out to meet the Cardigan Bay Dolphins (with dogs in tow!).

    The retreat also includes an opportunity for owners to qualify as a practitioner of the new energy technique “The Balance Procedure”, and begin an inspiring career working with dogs and animals (or people too if they wish) -improving behaviour, well-being and life success.

    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

    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.

  • The Creative Healing Journey with Lucinda Drayton

    Posted Nov 6th, 2011 By in Spiritual Holidays & Retreats With | No Comments lucindadraytonbanner

    A Residential Retreat in Scotland

    Over my many years as a singer/songwriter, I have been constantly comforted and healed by the act and process of creation.

    Even in my darkest times, I have written songs and stories. And I have danced and meditated.

    This process has healed my soul and allowed the unconscious aspects of myself to be heard and seen.

    When did you stop telling stories, dancing, drawing or writing?
    When did you last sit in complete silence listening to the voice of your own heart?

    These are not airy-fairy pursuits to me; they are ways for me to stay awake, to stay connected and to stay loving.

    If you want to change; to stop pointing the finger of blame outwards.

    If you want to discover your own depths, your own power and hear your own heart-song, unaffected by the agendas, advice or directions of others…

    Then come and join us on this incredible retreat.

    Use the beauty of Lendrick Lodge and the Scottish mountains to aid the healing process.

    Be nourished by good food and the company of others committed to waking up.
    Relax in your down time – knowing that you are not alone

    Go home with new insight, understanding and an abundance of creative energy

    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’.
