Workshops and Courses
When somebody thinks of the word holistic, they immediately think therapy. This is not necessarily true. Holistic also means a way of life. Recognising that everything is interconnected. So as much as one might go to a complementary therapist to 'fix what's broke', the biggest part is maintaining that wellness of mind, body and spirit. I am developing a programme of workshops and on going classes which will be fun and exctiting.
Art of the Apothecary
This is a series of 5 two hour classes looking at the history and art of the Apothecary through the ages.
The class schedule is a s follows:
#1 Egyptian, where we will look at incense and perfumery and you will blend your own 'perfume' from the oils that were available in that period to take home with you.
#2 Greek/Roman period, where we will look to the likes of Hippocrates 'the father of modern medicine and his peers. We will make a bath/massage oil again based on the oils from that period.
#3 Persian. A delicious period of aromatic oils. This class will have us making a luxurious facial or body cream from that period to your own individual and bespoke recipe.
#4 Medieval apothecary and herbal gardens. We'll be making an infused oil for you to use in your cooking.
#5 Victorian Britain where Florence Nightingale first used Lavender oil in the Crimea war, and the Victorians began investigating the chemistry of Essential Oils. We'll be making a blend of ils for antiseptic/viral and probiotic uses.
All course materials and handouts are included as is a certificate of attendance which carries 6 CPD points for therapists.
Cost: £120 which will include handouts, all materials and certificates.
Past Life Journeys
During this fortnightly, 6 session workshops, using various tools such as meditation, Essential Oils, Kinesiology, Chakra Cards and pendulums, we will embark on an exploration into your past lives to help you jeal the past and thus help you move forwards and fullfill your dreams in this one.
At the end of each session you will have personal 'homework' to do, to clear the way for your next session.
You will also be given your own unique blend of essential oils to help you on your journey.
Whether you believe in past lives or not, this will be a wonderful opportunity for you to work on blockages you have in this life that prevent you from fullfilling your dreams and aspirations in this one.
The cost is £70
Please bring a notebook to each session.
