SEASONAL ALIGNMENT

TO BRING HARMONY AND BALANCE, WE ALIGN WITH THE NATURAL ENERGIES OF THE SEASON

A ‘Seasonal Alignment’ workshop is a ‘nature-bathing’ day to remove negative energies (stress, tiredness, depression etc.) and re-charge our batteries. We explore our nature connection and align with our natural rhythm in tune with the earth’s seasons and cycles. We bring the beauty of nature back into the heart.

We all feel better when we spend time in nature and part of this workshop is spent outside. The morning is spent indoors where, using a visual mandala for contemplation, we reflect on the unique character of the season and our relationship with it. The afternoon is spent outside in Kew Gardens where we immerse ourselves in the seasonal landscape and interact with the plants.

There is a SA workshop that takes place during each of the four seasons of the year: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Each one is a unique, enjoyable and relaxing day offering the opportunity to expand our experience of both the natural world and our own essential inner nature.

TESTIMONIALS

“I completely enjoyed the whole experience, the associations of Spring you covered in the morning and the wonderful stroll around Kew Gardens, delighting in all its splendour, fresh growth and abundance. The bright day was a bonus.” Anne C.

 These workshops are suitable for adults of all ages. Mature teenagers accompanied by a parent are also welcome.
