Inner Dance Experience – Wednesday 22nd August

A spontaneous healing and energy movement process that unravels you and allows your body to speak its stored available wisdom. Often a deconstruction process takes place where walls of fear begin to wriggle their way free, it is a perfect union for balancing the masculine and feminine energies within.

The music is very specific and takes you on a journey into various terrains within your own spirit. They say that Inner Dance can awaken the Dreamer inside of you – spontaneous movement may happen – that derives from various openings that get created via the Inner Dance experience.

  • A few ways to describe Inner Dance:
  • Your intuitive body beginning to speak it’s stored available wisdom
  • Awakening the dreamer inside of you – waking up / parts of you
  • Deconstructing and opening up the walls so that fear that is locked in the body starts to wriggle its way free
  • A way to speak to yourself through your body
  • Conversation between your little self and bigger self

It comes from a total surrendering; allowing the Dance to take you where it is needed to go. Spontaneous movement may happen – that derives from various openings that get created via the Inner Dance.

There are vast experiences that people have when in this space. Come with an open mind and willingness to heal and learn more about your self.

You lie down to start and the music invites the body to respond as it needs feels called to. The facilitator supports the process by facilitaing energetic bodywork and sound healing when called to do so.

Get your Flow back playshop – Saturday, 25th August

A workshop to restore, recharge and replenish.

If you’re feeling unfocussed, depleted or disconnected, you probably have too much on your plate. But it’s often hard to fathom how you can shift or change anything in order to lighten your load. Our reality is that there will always be things pushing and pulling us hither and tither. Life has become one continuous, unending wave that takes all our wits to keep riding it.

To stay balanced, clear, and focussed, there is one thing of vital necessity: Time Out! A Time Out is a pocket of time just for you. No distractions. Where you get to take a breath, and for a while really check in with yourself. Time Outs should not be viewed as a luxury, but prioritised high on your Self-Care list.  (Question: do you have a self-care list?)

Give yourself three hours and sign up for this time-out experience to:

  • Check-in with where you’re at
  • Assess what’s really important and what’s not
  • Refocus and re-inspire
  • Step back into life with a sense of clarity and direction

Facilitated by Gail Schoeman – Nia instructor and ASTAR trained facilitator

Flow Workshop

Family Constellations Workshop – 29th September

FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS is a powerful method to help you recognise difficult entanglements, both in your family of origin as well as in your present family or relationship. Solution-oriented interventions bring understanding, which is followed by a deep relaxation that allows love to flow again between members of the family system.

Families have an unconscious mind and soul that travel across generations and entangle those who follow in the fates of those who came before us. We are deeply bonded to family members we may not have even known or knew existed: a parent’s deceased sibling; a grandmother’s rage; a stillborn baby, miscarriage, or abortion; ancestors who were enslaved or enslaved others; a father’s allies who died in wartime; our grandparents’ previous partners; the ancestors who stayed in the home country; and many others. Out of blind, loyal love, we unconsciously try to bring into light our ancestor’s difficult fate(s). This bonding love may cause us to invite situations into our lives in an unconscious attempt to restore balance to our family systems. The dynamics of this larger blueprint lies beyond our awareness, yet its effects on our lives is profound.

The Constellation experience invites you to pause and create sacred space together, and through the process explore the entanglements and old patterns and sound to assist the body to integrate the process – shifting the energy towards one of the possibility of change, creativity and expansion to reconnect to who you truly are.

Nadia Kimmie is a trained Systemic Constellations Facilitator, offering both individual and group constellation workshops to deepen the healing process.

 The workshop is open to everybody – no experience needed.

  • Date: Saturday, September 29th
  • Time: 11am – 4pm
  • Cost: R500 *Early Bird special of R420 if booked by 14th September
  • Sign up: 082 462 4844
    BOOKING is essential for this workshop

Overview of the process:

  • The hidden, family dynamics are brought to light with the group dynamic where the participants create a constellation of his or her family.
  • The participants, representing members of that person’s family, are positioned in the room in relation to each other according to the client’s feeling in that moment. In this way, a living model of the original (or present) family is created.
  • The feelings and thoughts of the people representing family members are very similar to those of the actual family members.
  • There exists an energy field that guides the representatives’ movements and allows them to have access to all essential information of the systemic field.
