Debbie Howes

The Unconscious Nature of Problems
The logic of the unconscious mind is that of a child. Intellectual, conscious information does not always 'sink' in to the unconscious mind.

Answers as to why there is stagnation in relationships as well as other sabotaging behaviours are discussed.

The energy dynamic of the group is aligned as each individual 's chakras, meridians and subtle bodies are guided into balance and harmonized using sound, movement, breathing patterns and intention. An ancient form of healing is rediscovered as many souls join to create, heal and flow with a timeless art of healing. Breathing patterns dissolve blockages as the lymph system releases the old patterns allowing for the new.

Debbie has undergone an intense journey into many complementary healing modalities and meditation techniques. This has culminated in a healing modality, which is guided from the inner planes whereby the ancient art of healing through sound, movement and breathing patterns emerges. Debbie incorporates the 5 elements, sound and crystals to redistribute the energy dynamics of an individual or group towards wholeness and completion.

Marguerite Handy

Aura-Soma- Beyond Colour ®
Aura-Soma is therapeutic colour for everyone. What is it about colour that makes it so powerful, and how can we capture the magic of colour to improve our lives? The energies of colour surround us and are key ingredients in how we form our feelings towards something. When we become stressed we disrupt the natural flow of energy in and around us and we begin to feel a little "off-colour" , "washed out " or "bleak". The word "Aura" means light, "Soma" means body. So we are addressing the vibrancy of the light-body or bio-energetic field when using the Aura-Soma products. One of our aims is to bring the seven major energy centers into balance, and also to restore, revitalise and rebalance ourselves at all possible levels. An incredible tool is at our fingertips!

A solar spectrum of radiant colour to bring balance back into life. This workshop is for everyone! Colour speaks all languages. As we begin to understand the language of colour we can begin to see our strategies and how we make things happen in our lives. Aura-Soma relies on bottles of dual-coloured liquids known as Equilibrium bottles that incorporate plant extracts, essential oils, and the energies and extracts of precious and semi-precious stones. Our choice of 4 of the 111 equilibrium bottles is a consciousness mirroring of who we are.

"We are the colour we choose, and the colours reflect our beings needs"
When the colours of the therapeutic bottle are applied onto the skin they help the chakras open and function well as transceivers, easing the flow of energy within, helping to move away from dis-ease and into a state of more harmonious ease. Interacting with the colours of Aura-Soma can be a personally rejuvenating and supportive process, affecting the energetics of our subtle anatomy and physical being. Our individual colour code may be a springboard to develop greater awareness of our path and purpose, gifts, soul talents, our challenges and how we may step free from the conditioned patterns of the past.

Speaker's biography
Marguerite is an Aura-Soma Colour Care Consultant and teacher and registered with the Arts & Science International Academy of Colour Technologies U.K. She has been working with the evolving Aura-Soma system since 1996, offering training and private consultations. She is also a qualified Reiki Master Usui , Genesen Acutouch Therapist and Colour Astro Biochemic Tissue Salt consultant.

Sergio Salotto

Do you know who you are? What are you really?

Speaker's biography
"In 1990 I uncovered a unique life driving force that resulted in my experiencing a life-altering event. It was an event from which I eliminated my belief of not being good enough and ended my making decisions out of fear of possible consequences. For the first time I understood the real meanings of responsibility and freedom of choice. Having counseled those close to me to identify their own unique driving force and change their lives, led me to facilitate my own self-awareness workshops. I offer private counseling & public speaking. I have been on Radio 702 and I am in process of finding a publisher for my book on this subject."
