Activity 1:

Individual Sessions In person or Online

Sessions guide you to an internal focus and teach practical everyday tools to build self awareness so you are able to see yourself and life more clearly and to understand and change the root causes of the issues or problems, the unhealthy thoughts, emotions and life habits.  By discovering the connections between health and life problems and the consciousness we can learn to become the director and healer of our own lives.

The core work of the session is to identify and understand and change the habits and patterns that affect our health and lives in unhealthy ways. The stories that limit your growth and potential.

Your process will be  supported in a safe and nourishing environment.  A state of calmness and relaxation is the base state for transformation to happen.

This work is designed to support changes  on all levels, on our physical health, our qi (energy) mental and emotional and jing shen (spiritual) levels thus taking care of the whole of life.

Activity 2:

Challenges Equal Growth

Beginning 6th May , 8 week session to support pattern work

Thursdays 9am till 10.30am NZ time

Offering space to share, support  and strengthen one another to move through life's challenges with an open heart.  To move deeper into embracing rather than resisting everything that crosses our paths.

Small or big challenges, all are our teachers , arriving to show us something.  Giving us the opportunity to look deeper into the patterns that keep us 'stuck' , trip us up, view as our                 'I' dentity  .  Each challenge offers us a gift, giving us the opportunity transform the mud into nourishment and growth.


Lotus Flower Meaning - What is the Symbolism Behind the Lotus


'If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong'.  Masaru Emoto, Secret Life of Water

We will begin the sessions with some practice which may be moving or a combination of both moving and still to prepare the space we share and for our  own heart enquiry.

Each session there will be a topic.  A time for inner reflection, an opportunity to share and support one another and some tools shared that can help with the deeper pattern work in our daily life in between sessions.

Your input is welcome on topics but some questions that have come from the individual sessions which I would like to explore further.

How to bring more awareness to my patterns and what I am doing in my waking life and in my sleeping life (dreams)

Challenges and how can we make the most of these opportunities and continue to keep our heart open.

Seeing our responsibility in that every disturbance on the external also starts within ourselves.

Embracing these challenges as an opportunity to see and change the patterns.

Finding the answers within myself to be creative in finding solutions to these challenges

How to move away from identifying with these challenges and patterns and remaining stuck .

The course will run for 8 weeks and continue on in the following term but find it is nice to spend some blocks of time to dedicate to this work together with intention.

Costs $150 max 12 participants

Be in touch about registering for term two and any topics you would like to have possibly included in this first 8 week block.
