My Life My Way - New ways of being and finding balance - Residential Retreat

About My Life My Way - New ways of being and finding balance - Residential Retreat

Programme for residential retreat 8 July - 10 July 2022

The healing community had to adapt their practices and find new ways of working through the complexities that the Covid crises brought into our lives. During this crisis you may have experienced or worked with clients who have experienced the loss of a loved one, loneliness, isolation, compassion fatigue which can be felt by care givers of family members and front-line workers. Difficulties with work responsibilities and complications in the workplace.

Whether you call it personal growth, self-development or wellbeing, this retreat is offering a space to nurture this and support the authentic ‘self’ with life transitions and the need to pause, to be more in touch with this part of ourselves, by catching your breath and enabling you to make wise choices. This retreat is providing the opportunity to be with like-minded people in a peaceful environment where you can nurture your ‘self’.

As we are now moving back to face-to-face working with clients this retreat can provide a contemplative culture and time for quiet, which can support you in reflecting, recharging and reconnecting with your mind, body and spirit. You will have the opportunity to share your own story and hear the stories of others. Connect to and create from the heart centre, all we ask is that you bring an open heart and open mind.

With Jan Tripney [[Chairperson of Region 12, Scotland, Healer and Trainee Tutor with The Healing Trust, thehealingtrust.org.uk Psychotherapist, Reiki Master and Remote Spirit Release Practitioner]

Covid has brought many challenges into our own life and the clients’ we see, including bereavement, loneliness, isolation, and compassion fatigue. We are becoming more open about mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, grief and suicidal thoughts. I have worked within the NHS mental health services for 20 years in various settings and locations. It is important that we think about what keeps us mentally well and how we manage clients with mental health conditions that come for healing.

2.30. 3.40: Workshop on Protection
With Jan Tripney [Chairperson of Region 12, Healer and Trainee Tutor with The Healing Trust, Psychotherapist, Reiki Master and Remote Spirit Release Practitioner] and with Danielle Lynch [Spiritual Medium and RSR practitioner]

Living life, we protect ourselves by assessing situations, from crossing the road, work situations, to our relationships with others and ourselves. How do we assess the energetic world and the energies we encounter, for example spirit guides, how do we determine the authenticity of them? We are working within the subtle energetic systems of ourselves and the energetic beings and energetic world around us. How do we know if we are sovereign beings and how do we carry out a spiritual health check on ‘self’ our home and any other areas of our life?

A demonstration of a Remote Spirit Release session [RSR], with myself and my colleague Danielle, who lives in the USA and will be with us via zoom. This process works with the clients’ higher self and their subtle energy anatomy systems, including the chakras and auric fields, checking that they are functioning at their optimal level. RSR can be viewed as a spiritual health check. With this modality I work with a spirit guide through a trance medium, Danielle and follow a protocol which takes us through the cleaning and clearing of the subtle energetic systems of the body, home and work environment and any other clearings that may be required. Ensuring that the client is functioning at the optimum level at the end of the session.

3.40pm-3.55pm Tea break

4pm- 5.45pm: Sound Bath:
With Kirsten Green [Sound Practitioner] will be giving us the joyful experience of having a Sound Bath.

There are many benefits of the therapeutic use of sound frequencies on all levels of the body, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual self. It can help reduce stress, anxiety, chronic pain and support the ‘self’ to re-wire’ negative thought patterns and beliefs by creating new neuro pathways. It can also reduce feelings of fatigue and lethargy and promote clear thinking and creative solutions and bring the whole body into a state of balance.

For this experience you simply lie back and relax, with a blanket over you and allow Kirsten to take you on a journey. Beginning with a guided meditation and using a wide range of musical instruments including singing bowls, you can allow the vibrational rhythm of the sounds to soothe the body and help reset the balance of the ‘self’.

6pm-7.30pm: Evening meal
7.45pm – 8.45pm space for meditation and receiving and giving healing

Sunday 10th July:

8am – 9.30am: Breakfast

With Alison Dunn. [Reiki Master Teacher, Member of the Reiki Federation, Energy Healer, Munay-Ki practitioner, Diamond Light Activation, Medium and Tarot Card Reader and Teacher of Tarot and designer of Tarot Cards]

I am going to take you on a journey with the tarot cards. Tarot is a modality that can help us gain greater insight into our current situations and honour our intuition and show potential outcomes. Starting out with tarot you begin by building up a relationship with the cards. Tarot is a tool that facilitates talking about things, I am going to go through the processes of how to work with tarot. There is a special mystical energy with the cards and a connection with people that open them up and melt away the walls they have and allow changes to come in. Intuiting is a big part of a tarot reading, that’s what makes it special, it is where energy comes in, being able to sense what someone is feeling, thinking, or going through. Therefore, keeping an open mind and trusting one’s own intuition is important. Please bring your tarot cards if you have them.

11.10am-11.20am: Tea Break
