16th – 17th December 2015

card0428frontTRE® for Expanded Sexuality is a two day introduction,designed by Fiona Leibowitz, specifically for those wanting to shift or move sexual stress or trauma from their bodies. We learn the importance of clearing the pelvic and sacral regions, working with toning the Psoas Muscle, for a more open, vital and healthy sexuality. We learn more about the role of Fascia, and it’s relationship to trauma and stress. We also explore The vagus nerve, and how certain emotional and physical contracted patterns, may be keeping us from having more successful relationships, with self and others.
During the two days, we get to practice TRE® 4x – this offers a powerful introduction to the process, and allows for you to continue self regulating the practice at home. We add breath, flow and sound meditations from the Taoist Philosophy, which adds a more focused approach to working specifically with orgasmic energy.

Tarot for Beginners with Glynn Rylan

7th – 8th January 2016

a422d22b6d888618dd017c3fc198f316People love to consult the tarot cards and when they do, they always get a heads up on energies coming into their lives.
But what the cards they are really brilliant at, is holding up a big mirror and reflecting people back to themselves. Both the parts they are aware of and will know consciously, as well as the parts that that are not consciously aware of, but will recognize nonetheless. This is the perfect use of the cards, as a personal development tool. Learning to read the cards for others is a privilege that requires careful preparation and study. This course will teach you step by step how to hold a professional, insightful reading for anyone who wishes to consult your cards.

TRE® Global Certification Training with Fiona Leibowitz

11th – 13th January 2016

x3-1TRE® or Trauma & Tension Release Exercises, is a somatic body based practice for anyone suffering with stress, anxiety, trauma or PTSD. It overcomes language barriers as it is a process that doesn’t require talking about the event, feeling or issue. We do a series of 7 easy stretches, stressing the muscles of the lower body, and building up a little shaking in the legs. We then lie on the floor, and encourage these natural vibrations to move through the body, without trying to control them. Most people enjoy the sensation; for some, they report a physical or emotional release, without becoming overwhelmed in the process. Many express feelings of relaxation, loosening, relief and pleasure.The TRE® session from start to finish is about 45-60 minutes.

The Love Journey with Jeremiah Abrams

18th – 22th January 2016

hearttreeThis five-day retreat is an immersion experience, a deeper inquiry into the truth of what has happened to us on our earth walk thus far, a chance to reveal and release conclusions and beliefs that restrict your capacity for love. Wanting to love and to be loved is a motive force in all of us. All of us long to have more love in our lives, and there are many offers help, programs to love yourself more, to find love, to attract a mate, to overcome any obstacles through acts of will that encourage better ways of thinking, acting, being. But most such enterprises tend to avoid the core wounds that prevent the flow of love in our lives.

Experience Freedom – trauma release with Chetana Barkan

25th – 29th January 2016

4c08d769222398e67283d02be4e688f1Your ability to flow in life`s graceful direction is reflected in the way you breathe. When you breathe deeply and fully, you can be aware of the true environment around you.
Any trauma associated with a situation, conditioned patterns, and conscious/unconscious beliefs get stored in the body as cellular memories throughout the nervous system. These memories cause stress and core tension in your physical structure and inhibit your breathing patterns. When the breath is shallow and incomplete, your ability to see yourself, your relation-ships and the world around you with clear, sane vision is interrupted.
