    Connect to Your True Source of Power

    As the world changes so fast, the need to connect deeply with our inner gifts is ever more important. During this evening’s unique musical performance, Sika will take you on a journey to re-connect with your personal Source of Power.

    This Sound Journey is powerful and deep! It enables you to move through obstacles within yourself, potentially invoking healing and profound transformations that can be carried forward into day-to-day life.

    This music comes from a deep connection to Great Spirit. Working intuitively with inner guidance, my intention is to ‘get out of the way’ and let Spirit come through me” – Sika Rose

    Journey into Altered States of Consciousness. Feel the healing energy and connect with your true Source of Power. In this ceremony, Sika will play a dynamic fusion of instruments, close to and around your body.

    These songs are offered as a ‘Spirit Canoe’ taking you gliding down the river of your own Dreaming and gratitude is felt for the teachings from the Aboriginal people of the world and for the Spirit that guides us on our paths.

    The Sound Journey

    Close your eyes and experience the power of primordial sound as Sika plays a wide array of his indigenous instruments including:-

    Didgeridoos, drums, native flutes, rattles and natural objects like shells, wooden sticks, rocks and chimes to create subtle ambient soundscapes.

    In between each part of the Journey, Sika will add to the experience by sharing Earth-Wisdom, Teachings and Personal Stories from life and the cultures he has experienced in over twenty years of travels around the world.

    Merging Ancient & Contemporary instruments, Sika’s music crosses the lines between World, Ambient Dance & Acoustic Trance.

  • Tao Porchon-Lynch – The Dance of Life Within Us

       Exclusive Yoga Retreat with Tao Porchon-Lynch

    This is an opportunity of a lifetime to spend some quality time immersed in the practice of yoga with the truly inspirational and enchanting  94 year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch.

    TaoNYAs one of the world’s oldest yoga teachers, Tao is living proof that a regular yoga practice, combined with a positive outlook on life may be key to ageing well. This remarkable woman has been involved with yoga since her childhood in India and has been teaching the subject for 42 years.

    Tao believes that the body can reycle itself, and following hip replacement surgery a  number of years ago, her doctors warned her that she might not be able move like she used to. Thanking them for their advice, she didn’t let that stop her yoga practice, and at the grand young age of 84, she also became a competitive ballroom dancer!

    Tao says “Yoga is the dance of life within us, and if I can teach yoga and do a good job, I can help others as much as I can help myself. I have got as much from my students as they have from me. I consider them to be my jewels. Inside of me is the creation of life, and if I can awaken that inside of me, there is nothing I cannot do! I’m going to dance and do yoga for as long as I live.”

    Over the past few years, Tao has become a huge inspiration to thousands of people around the globe and despite having had both her hips replaced – twice in one instance – she continues to travel the world sharing her gentle wisdom and life’s experiences.

    At a youthful 94, Tao brings a delightful, childlike love of life and nature to all that she does. Prepare to be enchanted and inspired if you’re blessed to have the opportunity to meet her.

    Watch her in action, and be inspired!

    Tao will lead yoga classes throughout the weekend, interspersed with talks and question and answer sessions. There will also be ample time to enjoy exploring the beautiful grounds of our stunning venue.

    This will be Tao’s 4th event for Naked Dragon and with her ever growing fan base in the UK and Europe, the very limited places on this intimate retreat will sell out very quickly.

    Living from The Heart 

    Sedgwick Park House

    Join Lucinda Drayton from Bliss for a day of reconnection and peace amidst the beauty of Sedgwick Park

    When we live from the heart, from that place of authenticity, clarity and warmth, life becomes a joyful experience.

    However do not be fooled into thinking that the journey to this position is the easy option. In a world that is rushing and full of fear it is like learning to swim upstream.


    The day will include fun, discussion, teachings and an afternoon meditative musical experience to journey right into your heart, which holds your unique wisdom.

    If you are looking for a Guru this day isn’t for you!

    However; if you wish to become your Own Guru, your Own Ally and your Own Guide – then see you there!

    There will be a long midday break for you to enjoy the stunning gardens and to walk the labyrinth.

    Please bring Vegetarian food to share.

    *** SPECIAL BONUS ***

  • 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)

    Fri 27th – Sun 29th July 2012

    Millions obsess over it.   Thousands have died for it.   We all seek it.   Few will find it.

    Even fewer will live it.

    It is LOVE!

    It seems we are compulsively obsessed, yet slightly confused…about love. While many of us think we know love so well we often find it hard to be unconditionally loving.

    So what is love… actually?

    Where is love…exactly?

    And how do you love…precisely?

    * Is it something that should come naturally?   * Do we have to earn it?   * Or will it just show up?   * Can we expect to be loved?   * Or is that just the fortune of a fated few?   * Should we ‘feel’ love all the time or just occasionally, in some ‘emotional high’?   * And how are we to teach our children about true love in the face of so many illusions?

    During this exclusive weekend retreat with Mike George & Lucinda Drayton, you will explore:

    • The wrong turns that we take in our search for love
    • The one and only thing that blocks every human heart and stands in the way of our rediscovery of love
    • How to bring the light and power of love into all your relationships
    • Why you may not be aware that your heart has been sabotaged in many ways
    • Why happiness is impossible until you know the ‘truth about love’
    • The secrets of how to ‘feel’ love anywhere anytime
    • Why, in truth, you can never ‘fall’ in love

    “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.” Mike George

    The Structure & Flow of the Retreat

    ASPECT One – WHAT is Love?
    Rediscovering the Power of the Heart

    Ask one hundred people, “What IS Love?” and it seems there are a hundred different answers! It appears that few know love as it truly is.  Perhaps that is why love so often seems to be lost in a stressful world filled with conflicted relationships. In this session: why love is lost in the mists of many illusions, why love cannot ever be ‘found’ wherever we look; what love is ‘in reality’, and what happens when love is present.

    ASPECT Two – WHERE is Love?
    Untangling our Emotions so that we may Feel Love

    With so much confusion about the true nature of love it’s no surprise we find it hard to recognise our own emotions and choose our feelings.  In this session: what’s is the difference between our emotions and feelings…exactly; why love is lost when we ‘emote’; how to ‘feel’ love anywhere anytime.

    ASPECT Three – WHY is Love?
    How to Play the Relationship Game

    While relationship is both the context and the fabric of all our lives how do we know love is present?  Why does love often disappear so rapidly after the honeymoon period?  In this session: what are the signs and symptoms of an authentically loving relationship; why what’s IN the way IS the way; love or fear – why are you together with another?

    ASPECT Four – HOW to Love?
    Bringing Love back to Every Day Life

    It’s only when we fully realise that we are the creators of our own destiny that we can restore our awareness that love is the only game in town.  Some say that we return to love or that love returns to us but, others say that ‘in reality’, love never left.  In this session: how to maintain the vision of love and ensure your decisions are shaped by love…despite those who would glorify all that is unloving!
