All Saints Centre
Every other Tuesday

Meeting in the Heart

12:15 - 14:15 Alternate Tuesdays 14 Nov, 12 Dec (no meeting on 28 Nov) and ongoing in new year.
Bring a cushion and blanket. Chairs also available.

Is your deepest desire to know who you are?
Are you longing for peace, for love, for truth, for freedom?
Have you heard the call to come home, to yourself, to the stillness of Being?

An invitation to move beyond the limitation of belief, opinion and perception and to rest your attention on the space of Awareness, of pure Consciousness, the Love that you are. You are invited to shift your perception from the mind to the heart, to ‘feel’ the Truth of who you are, which is ever-present, and begin to view life from the 'eyes of the heart'.

A spontaneous flow of meditation, self-enquiry, questions, insight and sharing/listening – an opportunity to feel and fully allow what is arising in honesty and to enquire into to the Truth of reality.

What is offered is a safe space of Love, of Presence, deep listening and a reflective mirror for your inner process. This is a space where Truth can be seen within yourself, questions can be clarified, misunderstandings can be realised and Love can be experienced as a reality, not simply as concept.

'Meeting in Heart' & 'Waking the Serpent' are held on alternate Tuesdays and are complementary. The stillness, sharing and enquiry of 'Meeting in the Heart' supports what is arising in the expressive movement of 'Waking the Serpent' and vice versa. You are welcome to attend either or both.

Come as you are. All that is required is willingness, openness and a sincere heart. See www.sacredhearth.net/teaching-schedule.html for meeting times.

Monthly Women's Shakti Circle

The women's temple offers a fluid approach to yoga/being in circle especially designed for women, which honours our monthly cycle and deep womanly wisdom. We may explore practices including yoga for women, breathwork, yoga nidra, meditation, menstrual cycle wisdom, sound and mudra (gesture). At other times, we may be guided to be in nature, simply share from the heart or spend some in silence. Each week will be different depending on what Love is asking us to be with.

By coming together in this way, we awaken the power of Shakti (the creative feminine life force), opening, trusting & connecting deeply to the collective wisdom of woman, and rediscover what it is to be in our feminine essence - free, wild, cyclical, flowing, natural, intuitive and loving.

In offering yourself this time, you will learn to receive yourself fully, connect with the different seasons of your cycle, your womanhood and radically transform your relationship with yourself and others. This class is suitable for all women. Pregnant women and babes in arms welcome.

Please visit www.wombsong.weebly.com for more about awakening the Feminine and the work with women or www.sacredhearth.net for all my offerings. See schedule for class times.

Joy of Movement / holistic dance and movement for health

10:30 - 11:40 A gently guided class combining simple, flowing and easy to follow dance and mindful movement for women of all ages, fitness levels and experience. Enjoy an hour of breathing, gentle stretching and simply guided, easy to follow movement to some uplifting and inspiring music. Our class is low impact and we focus more on body sensation and feeling good than cardio fitness, though we do get fit in the process! Participants are guided to follow their own energy output. All classes end with mindful breathing and a meditative seated or lying down reflection time. We especially welcome people who haven't moved in a long time, or 'ever' in a class situation as we are a friendly group of a broad range of ages who just love to dance with no worries of 'getting it right’.

FIRST CLASS FREE...(please book in).

Tuesdays 10.30-11.40a.m
Thursdays 10.30-11.40a.m
