Kate B

Kate BKate has been a singer for as long as she can remember and first picked up the guitar when she was 14. She has done everything musical short of playing in an orchestra… from folk to blues and cafes to weddings and community choirs.

Her journey has more recently carried her back to the world of chanting, mantra and kirtan, revisiting an old passion in the joy of creating uplifting sound with others. Since this reconnection, the Ukelele and Celtic Harp have found their way into the musical landscape, supporting the original songs which seem to flow effortlessly now, fuelled by her true inspiration…. That is: sharing her love of voice and song to create a musical sanctuary, to connect us with others, provide refuge from the busyness of our everyday lives, quieten the mind and leave us with a deep sense of peace and joy.

Kate is also a Zenthai Shiatsu Therapist & Facilitator and Yoga Chi Gung teacher with a background in martial arts and dance. With two decades experience teaching, she loves sharing these healing arts with the community through treatments, classes and workshops, with the vision that through music and healing touch we can all experience greater wellbeing in our lives.

Transform your Heart – A Journey for Men

Pauline Ryelandben gair with  Pauline Ryeland and Ben Gair

Deep down all men want to feel love too & unfortunately men have been conditioned through culture and religion that they have to be tough. There are so many mixed messages about the “what & how” of sex instead of allowing it to “just be”. Often there is shame & guilt associated with sex and this effects not only how you relate with women, but how you relate to yourself.

This workshop is going to break down the taboos around sexuality for men & will show you how to transform your heart through opening yourself more to the core essence of your own sexuality.
In this workshop we will look at ways you can experience more & show you how sex can be more than one dimensional. We will be talking about sex in general, ways of keeping sexual dysfunction from occurring & how to turn the women in your life on even more.

We will do some specific exercises & processes using a mixture of teachings from Sexological Body Work, Tantra, NLP & Subconcsious Reprogramming.

The desired outcome is to give you a new way of relating to yourself sexually, which will ultimately affect the way you relate sexually with another. And so the heart of Transformation begins.

Connect to Your Heart Space: A Journey for Women

Pauline Ryelandwith Pauline Ryeland

We all desire to meet & connect in a deep way with another & to find a balance within our own feminine and masculine. The first thing we must do is connect to our own heart, to love ourselves, to heal our hearts, to let go of our own doubts & fears, lack of self worth & woundings. When we can love & accept ourselves fully, our hearts can open.
When we combine connecting to ourselves sexually with connecting to our hearts huge shifts and transformations can occur. We can use this energy as a catalyst for healing, empowering us to move forward & it will ultimately bring changes on many different levels, which will ultimately transform your heart.

This workshop will be a combination of sexual discussion, exercises and processes using a mixture of teachings from Sexological Body Work, Tantra, NLP & Subconcsious Reprogramming processes.
The desired outcome is to find new ways to open & connect to your heart & sexual self with some fabulous tools to take back out into your life, to continue the journey of the Heart of Transformation

Morning Grounding

Amon Woulfewith Amon Woulfe and Trevor Cohen

Begin your day feeling fresh & recharged, centred, clear and connected. A Grounding Class is a wonderful opportunity to get out of your head and back in your body, as you clear the blocks to self expression and vitality.

The classes are built off the field of Bioenergetics, and utilise body-based psychotherapy techniques to activate, open and release psycho-somatic blocks that are held in your body. This allows your energy to flow more freely and to be open to experience the full aliveness of yourself.

Being “Ungrounded” is very symptomatic of modern life, with a heavy focus on mental activity and always being on in a 24/7 world. This can lead to increased levels of psychological distress, muscular tension, and dissociation with the body’s wisdom and signals.

Being “Grounded” allows a much clearer perception of reality, as you are less defended, more present, more centered, more open and better able to relate to, enjoy and experience the world.

Hear Your Heart’s Song

DayAnandawith DayAnanda

I would like to invite all souls on an inner expedition to the heart of our being. Let’s venture into the cells, recover the hidden gems, decipher the clues and unlock the memories of the ultimate treasure and unsolved mystery! US!

Hear your heart, open your heart, be your heart then share your heart’s song.

How to Hear the Heart’s Song: The heart maintains the beat of our song and when it is open it unites all cellular sounds in a harmonic resonance that allows us to hear and restore the memories of our cells (Selves/Souls).

This workshop is an experiential guide to listening and Re-membering .

Discuss the concept of Cosmic Amnesia
Re-introduce people to the members (inhabitants/crew) of their inner universe.
Help to Identify cellular groups that are responsible for the full functionality of the state of being Human. Hue = the colours of the rainbow + Man = manifestation in physical form.
Begin the process of cellular communication and unification through colour, sound and vibration.
Share a unifying Heart Song.
The process is designed to take the individual on a tour of inner awareness. The heart is the co-ordinator and when it is open and singing in harmony it can heal and transform all areas of the HUEMAN being.

Hear your heart
Open your heart
Be your heart
then
Share your heart’s song.

If you are not Following Your Heart, then where are you Headed?

Bill Lee-Emerywith Bill Lee-Emery

The latest neuroscience research confirms you have complex, adaptive and fully functional ‘brains’ or ‘intelligences’, in your head, heart and gut. Of these, the heart intelligence leads the way…and is the key to our inner transformation and expression of our deepest authentic self.
Workshop Description

The latest neuroscience research confirms you have complex, adaptive and fully functional neural networks, ‘brains’ or ‘intelligences’, in your head, heart and gut. This confirms wisdom and insights from every spiritual and esoteric practice from over five thousand years and more.

While we need the insights from each intelligence, the heart clearly leads the way…and it is the key to our inner transformation and expression of our deepest authentic self. In essence, we need the inner connections to our ‘three brains’ to thrive and contribute fully in the world.
However when these three brains are not aligned or not collaborating, then life can feel challenging and stressful.
You’ll experience this as;
conflict between thoughts, feelings and actions
leading to inaction and fear-based road blocks
not acting upon or sabotaging your dreams, goals and plans
indecisiveness or unable to stop unwanted behaviours
not being fully connected with your deepest inner self.

This challenge of ‘inner connection’ is often outwardly seen as a conflict between head and heart (or masculine and feminine). In truth there is no real conflict, rather confusion as to which brain does what and when. Get this sorted out and life can change dramatically and profoundly.

In this science based and experiential 3 hour workshop, we‘ll explore fascinating insights revealed in recent years and you will leave with simple ways to connect, communicate and align all three beautiful intelligences within you.

‘mBraining’ is a unique coaching model which puts all the above concepts together and is sweeping the world. If you are a coach, mentor or ‘people helper’ of any kind, then join this workshop and discover what the buzz is all about.

The essence of this work is to encourage people to live fully from the highest expressions of ‘Compassion, Creativity and Courage’ so that we can create a truly heartfelt and sustainable future.

Sacred Ancestor Circle

Steve McKenziewith Steve McKenzie

Come on a gentle systemic constellation journey deep within (with the support of Spirit, your guides and ancestors) to explore your true essence in a tribal Sacred Circle. This is an opportunity for a beautiful heart opening. This is not a workshop; it is an experience.

The journey to soul is an inward journey, a downward spiral, often to darkness, the hero’s journey (a crossing of the threshold to the lower world and return home a new person) yet beautifully transformational. The transition to complete the workshop of 45 minutes would incorporate sharing and closing the circle. I use music and shamanic processes (smudging, drumming etc) as part of the circle work.
