    Naked Dragon is Two Years Old this May! 


    And What a Thrilling, Inspirational and Amazing Two Years it Has Been! 

    Since our launch event in Surrey in May 2011 with our first guest speaker; best selling author and creator of The Mystery Experience – Tim Freke, it continues to be a great joy to offer a platform to the best of today’s Inspirational Speakers and Sound Performers. 

    Nurturing and developing our community has been fuelled by love and it is a real joy to have discovered that by following my passion in such a way that Naked Dragon has quickly become my life’s work. And as work has become play – and play has become work – I have found myself dancing the beautiful dance of life as many aspects of my life begin to gently flow into one another.

    Over the past two years it has been a great pleasure to have presented …

    57 x Unique Inspirational Experiences with…
    34 x Fantastic Speakers and Performers at…
    7 x Gorgeous Venues 

    And we were recently delighted to learn that we had connected with more than 30,000 people last month!

    Last year we were also honoured to have been invited to sponsor… 

    2 x Film Premières

    Three Magic Words featuring Gregg Braden
    Road to Peace featuring HH The Dalai Lama

    I would like to take this opportunity to offer a HUGE thank you to all our fantastic speakers …

    I would also like to offer a HUGE Thank You to our Wonderful Sponsors who have been so very generous with their support.

Thank you all.

  • A Little Something to Help You Make the Most of 2012

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

    A Guest Post by Davina MacKail

    Between now and the full moon on February 7th is a great time to manifest your intentions for the year.

    It’s great to set your big goals and dreams in motion. But I’d like you to focus on something else as well. Something far more important to your daily flow of peace and joy and something that is far more likely to help you ultimately achieve your big dreams.

    That something is “What you LOVE to do“.

    It’s extraordinary how often we ignore this even when we think we’re actually doing it.  Often we’re so focussed on our big dream we forget our daily happiness.

    To connect with what you LOVE find a time when you’ll be undisturbed and sit with yourself.  Spend a few minutes just relaxing. Take a breath in above your head and exhale below your feet and repeat a few times.  Now with your non-dominant hand resting on your heart to remind you of where this information is coming from ask yourself “What do I really LOVE?” and keep asking yourself until you can tune in to that energy and get the flow going.

    Relax and allow time for this exercise.  If you’ve been really out of touch with yourself lately it’ll take a while for you to remember what you really love – not what you think you should love or achieve or have but what you REALLY LOVE deep down in your soul.

    To give you an idea, some of the things that I truly LOVE in life include;

    Walking in the woods

    Playing my drum

    My morning cappuchino especially if my husband goes to get it for me:)

    Afternoons curled up reading a novel

    Going to the cinema

    Catching up with good friends


    Hugging trees

    Dancing by myself

    Making up silly songs whilst driving

    Long, indulgent bubble baths…

    Once you unleash your soul there’ll be no stopping you!

    You’ll also discover that what your soul loves rarely costs much money – so this is a gift you can truly afford. Capture all your deep loves in a notebook and promise yourself that:-

    2012 will be the year you give yourself the pleasure of something you truly love every single day.

    I wish you all a truly joyful and courageous 2012

  • The Gift of Our Dark Side

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

    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.

  • Davina MacKail – Discovering the Gift of your Shadow Self

    Posted Jul 20th, 2011 By in Archives With | No Comments
    Saturday 19th November 2011

    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! ***
