As the frenetic pace of the festive season draws close to its crescendo, what could be better than snuggling up in a soothing magical haven of tranquilly. Recharge your batteries with deep, healing rest and a soulful, nourishing sense of community to prepare for the holidays ahead.
Welcome to the Christmas Soother, and Winter Solstice Celebrations.
The Winter Solstice is a magical time of year; a time to celebrate reaching the longest night and a return of the light as the days finally start to get longer.
It is a wonderful time to rest and reflect on this last year, giving gratitude to what has served us well, and preparing us for what we want to bring into next year ahead.
Your Mini Retreat will offer you a chance to reflect with a few journal prompts to prepare you for the retreat, along with a beautiful Cacao Blessing, a Winter Solstice Guided Meditation, a deeply healing Soundbath to recharge you, and time to connect with some sentimental festive celebrations around the fire pit together.
There will be mince pies, warming ginger tea, and you will each receive a little gift from me to bring grace and gratitude to mark the end of this year<3. As usual you will get time to reflect and connect with your soundbath buddies and there will be oracle cards available should you wish to gain further insights from the year, or your experience. I can’t wait to spend this precious and sacred date with you all <3 WHAT IS A SOUND BATH? Sound baths have been described as a ‘sonic massage’, where you literally bathe in the healing and soothing vibrations of Crystal Singing Bowls (aligned to each Chakra) the powerful gong ‘Kali’ and an array of percussion instruments all designed to take you on a cosmic and underwater journey. Sound healing is not new, it has been used for thousands of years by our most ancient and wisest ancestors such as the Egyptians, Ancient Greeks and Native Americans. Just like our ancestors, we successfully use sound healing today on all manner of ailments - from migraines, insomnia, mental and emotional imbalances, stress, anxiety, digestive issues and many other medical conditions. It has been found that the frequencies and vibrations of sound baths slow our brainwaves down to alpha and theta waves which is where deep restorative healing (even to DNA level) can occur. This is known as altered states of consciousness, and you can come away from a sound bath knowing you have not only given yourself some time to deeply relax, but you are being healed at a cellular level at the same time ❤ WHAT IS A CACAO BLESSING Cacao blessing - Cacao is the whole-bean, super food that chocolate is made from; yet unlike processed chocolate that carries no nutritional value, this is the delicious ceremonial grade, velvety, elixir you will never forget. During a blessing, we will encode your Cacao with your own beautiful intentions for this full moon, and then bringing all your sensations alive to this heart warming 'food of the gods' elixir, you'll get to sip it mindfully and delightfully before snuggling down for the evening. CONSIDERATIONS: Contra-indications: This session is not suitable for anyone with heart conditions (pacemaker), epilepsy or first trimester of pregnancy. What to bring: mat, cushions (for head and under knees) and water bottle. Wear something comfortable and in layers to adjust if too hot or cold, a light blanket or wrap if you wish. I have a couple of spare mats if required, please contact me
