Naomi Rose - a talented soul singer/musician with a unique sound and style all of her own.

'... I come from a large musical family, my background in music ranges from classical to modern pop. I have been writing music for around 16 years and have managed to record some over time. I have been the soloist at a local church I attended when I was younger,  for a few years now. I regularly write my own composition for the weekly solo, where I will sing and accompany myself on the piano. I enjoy the spiritual connection I feel with the lyrics and I love to be able to share this with the members of the church. I have recorded a handful of the solos and sometimes sing harmonies with my recordings. I will be looking forward to sharing a selection of these musical pieces at this wonderful event!

Learn to Play the Native American Flute with Cloudsong

I have always drawn to the Native American culture from a young boy due to its relationship to nature, I witnessed how living with nature you grow to have so much of an understanding with it - you become part of it. Having a natural instinct for making items from the Native American's way of life and sharing them world wide, the Flute was a continuation of a path for me to follow, and so I taught myself how to play.

By way of thinking from the heart and being a visionary I have become a conduit in feeling the emotions that appear before me. Please join me for this workshop as I share my gifts and understanding of this beautiful instrument with you.

Dream Weaving (Making sense of Signs, Messages and Visions) with Barbara Meiklejohn-Free

Oracles of Old were once employed to use the lost art of dream weaving – interpreting dreams and visions by connecting to other worlds, by leaders of the ancient lands. Especially prevalent in difficulty say before a great battle or when faced with major decisions, as films like Gladiator, 300 and Merlin touch upon. More recently visions in a dream-like state have sparked films like Close Encounters, where individuals feel a need to act on their visions for a greater purpose.

In truth dreams are indeed a most useful tool and outlet for our souls and for our waking mind’s ability to make sense of all the worlds and realms we inhibit, as well as dealing with and processing everyday situations.

In this workshop all you need do is bring your dreams and visions. Barbara  and Flavia will help you connect to the worlds from which they come and will also interpret their meaning and how you can use them to weave yourself a better experience of the life.

Do you believe that we have all lived many times before? Would you like clarity and understanding about specific challenges or physical
discomforts currently in your life?

A Past Life Regression experience offers you a deep and profound journey to tap into your own inner wisdom of your higher self, that most people aren’t even aware that they possess. The result of this inner journey is always beneficial.

By using QHHT (devised by Dolores Cannon), a specialised form of Past Life Regression therapy, people obtain insight into understanding their life purpose, finding emotional resolution and often physical healing on the issues that are the most important for them. These sessions are very profound and help you understand who you are.Colin has been exploring past live regression for 15 years. He offers
free talks to local groups and also provides taster sessions to small groups. He will be talking about Past Lives and also providing a basic demonstration.

Making Emotion Conscious - Leading to Spiritual Enlightenment with Nick Roach

Nick will be describing the relationship between the emotions that arise from situations in our lives and the events themselves. And perhaps more importantly, how to use this knowledge to improve our life and grow in consciousness. 
 
During this fascinating and practical talk Nick shares how to:
 
•         Connect with the stillness within 
•         Consciously face emotions as they arise
•         Work with life and take action as necessary
•         Become increasingly present and self aware 
•         Gradually realise one's true nature

Nick began his spiritual journey as an extremely unhappy teenager desperately seeking a way to end the suffering which everyone seemed to accept as a normal - if not vital - part of being human. 

 Nearing despair, he eventually found a spiritual teacher who taught him how to experience emotion consciously which, as he learned, literally transforms the emotion into consciousness. Over 25 years have since passed, during which Nick faced the emotion head-on as he’d been taught, and spiritual insights and experiences came quickly from the outset, deepening steadily over the years into the sense of Being where the peace does not end.

 Now the author of 4 books on the subject, including his own spiritual autobiography, Nick teaches others how to do the same.

Kamina Gupta - coming soon

Hello, I’m Kamini! (rhymes with harmony). I’m an Intuitive Artist & Retreat Leader. As a professional artist and designer my career spans a wide range of experience including designing for theatre, publishing and marketing, teaching and facilitating arts workshops in schools, colleges and the community. I am currently leading Creating Space Women’s retreats at Sharpham Trust Centre for Mindfulness in Devon, UK.

My study and practice in the Buddhist tradition began in 1992. In 1998 I had a spontaneous awakening in my body of the Divine Feminine Shakti energy which began to express itself though my artwork and writing. This changed everything! I began my quest to discover and study the Feminine Archetypes across cultures, ancient rituals and sacred art, contemporary writings on Kashmiri Shaivism, and Shamanism. My explorations include dance, free movement, yoga, improvisation and spontaneous, ‘in the moment’ creative expression. The cultural mix of my birth has echoes through my spiritual journey and I am equally at home with the terms Yogini and Priestess!
