OPERATION SHINE! – more information about the workshop…
We can often experience the ups and downs of life as stressful. Many of us also care for others, at home, at work and in the community. Sometimes we think so much about the health and wellbeing of others, that we forget or feel unable to take care of ourselves. We take on too much, and then we experience feelings of exhaustion, frustration, powerlessness and overwhelm. The stress of our day-to-day lives is affecting our physical and mental health as well as our relationships.
So now it’s time for a change. Time to take responsibility for your own health and happiness.Time for you to SHINE!
This interactive and experiential workshop is based on my own life experiences, my work in the voluntary sector, personal self-development journey and training as a Spiritual Companion with the Spiritual Companions Trust.
First we will look at the science of stress. Then I will share with you my Top 10 tried and tested stress-busting techniques to bring you quickly and easily out of a place of dis-ease into a place of ease.
QIGONG, MEDITATION and the MAGIC of the BREATH with Nick Neter
“Touch your inner space, which is nothingness, as silent and empty as the sky; it is your inner sky. Once you settle down in your inner sky, you have come home, and a great maturity arises in your actions, in your behavior. Then whatever you do has grace in it. Then whatever you do is a poetry in itself. You live poetry; your walking becomes dancing, your silence becomes music.” ~Osho
As you become more sensitive to Qi in your Qigong practice,
you will become more sensitive to Qi in your everyday life.This opens new avenues of perception and awareness.
Investment:£18. Booking required. All welcome though priority will be given to regular attenders of my classes.
Come to a two hour workshop to experience the ancient practices of Qigong and Meditation in a beautiful setting in the Sussex countryside. We will be exploring the power of the breath with gentle, flowing movements and stillness, connecting with our own energy and that of nature.
“At the centre of your being
you have the answer;
You know who you are
and you know what you want.”
Qigong , derived from the Chinese “qi” and “gong” means working with the life force to develop vitality, strength, and wellbeing. Qigong is also a path to greater self awareness and understanding of our true nature.
Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years and can be done by people of all faith traditions. With the practice of meditation the mind settles and a sense of ease, tranquillity and joy arise. This can lead to insight and wisdom.
This two hour workshop has grown from discussions with my Tuesday evening group who suggested a Qigong and Meditation workshop to give more time to our work in our classes which we have been learning and exploring together and for a longer meditation. All are welcome though priority will be given to those who regularily attend my classes. Booking is essential as places are limited.
The Meditation is usually visualisation based, an inner journey to develop and explore more about our inner world and create new awarenesses. It is also an opportunity to learn and develop some letting go and relaxation techniques to work with ourselves.
Introduction to Homeopathy with Danielle Lindsay
Saturday,23rd November 10am to 4pm
Hi, my name is Danielle Lindsay and I am a classically trained and practicing Homeopath and as of September this year I am a lecturer of Medical Sciences at The South Downs School of Homeopathy in Chichester.
My interest in Homeopathy was spurred on by my uncle who was also a homeopath and after having treatment for myself I realised the incredible effectiveness of Homeopathy In 2005 I made the big decision to give 4 years of my life to train as a Homeopath. I found it very challenging as I was holding down a full-time job and at the time being a single mum of one. Sometimes I would be studying way into the depths of the night and very early hours of the morning. But I enjoyed every minute and every challenge. I knew it was my true calling in life.
I have been on a real journey with Homeopathy and have seen some of the most remarkable results with remedies, some even taking place before my eyes. To see people reap the benefits of these truly amazing remedies is such a pleasure and it’s so rewarding to know that all the hard work I have put myself through has been worthwhile.
Lots of people say or think ‘Homeopathy, oh that’s herbs and stuff, right?’ and my answer is well no not really, there really is so much more to this beautiful holistic system. It was the basis of medicine as over 200 years ago Samuel Hahnemann effectively discovered medicine in its purist form.
As a Homeopath my desire and dreams are to educate people that there is a complementary and alternative route, that is safe, gentle and restorative.
I am currently running a day course at The Well Being Centre at Glyndleigh, Nr Hailsham on the 23rd November 2019, with more courses to come in the near future for further details please email either myself on firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
EARLY BIRD OFFER £75 when booking before 31st October…!

Exploring Qi and the Magic of Touch with Nick Neter and Louise Burt on Saturday, 14th December 3.30-6.00 pm
This new series of workshops explores the nature of Qi through the five elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Using Qigong, meditation, breathwork, art, Shiatsu touch and the senses we shall be working to understand, increase and develop our own awareness of the Qi.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), five elements or five phases theory outlines the relationship between the different elements in nature and the life force, or “Qi,” that flows through them. The five elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.
The intention is to have a better understanding of each element as it occurs in nature during the year and how that works in our bodies, hearts and minds. Using Qigong, Shiatsu, Meditation, the Breath and Art work, we shall explore the qualities of each element and through simple exercises enable each participant to deeply connect and explore each element’s qualities. In so doing we shall share our Shiatsu Touch with each other to effect ease,flow,flexibility and an increased sense of well being.
In this December Water element workshop we shall be working with the Bladder and Kidney channels, with emphasis on our intention and the effort required to accomplish things, our willingness to act, the emotion of fear and our Jing, our source energy or ancestral Qi.
Places are limited to 8 people and the investment is £30. We ask for payment in advance to secure your place.
Please email email@example.com or call Nick on 07773061309 to book your place or for more information

Pilates is based on the teaching of Joseph Pilates, who built up a body of exercises during World War I that has been adapted over the years to form modern-day Pilates. Emphasising the connection between physical and mental health, the Principles of Pilates are: Concentration, Control, Core Stability, Breathing, Precision, Stamina, Flow and Relaxation. Each exercise guides you to gradually develop your body awareness, increase your strength, muscle tone and flexibility, and improve your posture, joint mobility and co-ordination.
I came to Pilates following an injury and quickly learnt that it was a great way to exercise in a calm and safe manner to build back core strength and overall posture. I felt so passionate about the help that this exercise gave to me and others that I trained to become a teacher. I have since worked with every manner of person, including sports men and women, the more mature, the disabled and the very young. One of the things I love about Pilates is that it is for people of all ages and levels of ability and fitness.
The key to success in Pilates, I believe, is working in a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, while also enjoying the fun that exercise produces through the release of endorphins. We work on the mat and rely on our own body weight to provide the resistance for our muscles to work against. We will sometimes use small pieces of equipment in the class such as soft balls, resistance bands and rings. In this way, we achieve a toned and aligned body. I teach mixed-ability classes, within which I guide each person individually to attain their personal best.
I specialise in orthopaedic Pilates and strengthening the pelvic floor. My other qualifications are in Garuda, Pilates fusion (barre/yoga/Pilates) and I am also a ASA swimming instructor.
