With Sherezade Ruano
At a very young age, Sherezade began dancing becoming a lover and student of movement and expression. She moved to Barcelona to follow her first passion- ballet- professionally. Sherezade’s introduction to meditation and yoga started as she began to explore new ways to work through two chronic diseases. She found yoga was the key instrument through which her healing process was fulfilled. Having studied and worked in an allopathic environment as a cardiac research nurse and having seen and experienced the consequences of the body and mind misalignments’, Sherezade dedicated her time to search for a holistic path in order to respond to many scientific questions about how the healing process worked.
Now through the practice of Yoga and the clinical science supporting it, she is trying to help others answer those questions within themselves. Sherezade Ruano is presently a Cardiac Research Nurse at the British Cardiac Research Trust. She is certified to teach yoga at hospitals and is developing the practice there. She is conducting clinical studies on the patients from her hospital, she teaches them privately at home whilst she develops a yoga program at the British Cardiac Research trust with one of their lead cardiologists.
WITH NATALIE SMYTH
Natalie will journey with you through preparing meals together as a community. Expanding individually, on certain foods that nourish us on a cellular level and also non-physical level. By creating meals together, we are rewarded by our collective artistry and mindful intention to connect us with our food. If you'd like to delve further, Natalie will be holding private consultations where she will assess your individual biochemistry though taking an extensive case history of your general health, family and health history, dietary habits, different bodily systems and lifestyle. Functional laboratory testing may be required to look into more complex cases to find the driver of the dis-ease.
WITH CHARLES FRASER
Edible Forest Gardens are the highest yielding, most biodiverse and bio-secure food production system that exists. Based on the natural progression in nature towards a forest, we strengthen those parts of the forest's cycle that provide for our needs. The training for the food forest and tree nursery will be lead by Charles Fraser who focuses on the co-creative gardening practices taught by the Findhorn and Perelandra Gardens whereby we establish a conscious co-creative relationship with the nature intelligences and each-other. Author of The Vegan Permaculture book Graham Burnett will also be on hand with decades of experience designing eco-systems wherein man is once again the most valuable aspect of a symbiotic regenerative economy, community and ecosystem. We will be expanding the training at future camps.
TRANSFORMATIONAL BREATH WORK
WITH ROWAN STERK
A large percentage of people use only a fraction of their inherent breathing capacity. Which can cause fatigue, disease and stress. Often when we’re in a fearful state of consciousness we hold our breath. Our limited breath pattern is therefore a good indicator of where emotional blockages, negativity and trauma from the past reside in our body. As we breathe we live!
The breath sessions offered in this evening workshop, all around the fire in the Tipi, involve breathing at your ‘edge’, in a circular way (without pause). This way of breathing allows the limiting and unconscious breath patterns that no longer serve to be surrendered and released. Hidden aspects of self, both positive and negative, will be revealed. True feelings and emotions are expressed and the closed shadow areas in the body (subconscious) will open up. As you breathe and relax into what’s arising, you have an opportunity to embrace all aspects of self. It is through surrendering resistance (ego) that we make space for Spirit and Love to work within our being. All you need is your commitment to breathe, a strong loving intention, and to trust the process.
At the end of the 3 hour session you’ll have embodied your vital Life-Force Energy more fully, which subsequently allows you to experience an authentic sense of clarity, joy and wellbeing. Rowan creates a confidential safe space of trust and acceptance, inviting each person to connect more deeply with him/her true nature and inner knowing. To realize profound peace here and now within body and mind! Rowan also incorporates sound journey elements into the journey, using tuning forks and various sacred instruments to help release the blocks in the body with attuned vibration. The journey is incredibly powerful so please be ready for the edge of your breath.
