SPIRIT DANCE WITH NATASHA QUINN
Tuesday 9th November 7pm - 8.45pm
Spirit dance is a shamanic journey which leads to free flow movement whilst journeying with the drum beat moving into dance. It is a safe sacred space to listen to the inner voice, feel into the heart, ask for healing, guidance and express our own truth through self expression bringing it to light so we can see it more clearly, celebrate our uniqueness.
The beat of the drum creates a monotonous tone which slows down the brain waves bringing the brain into a theta state, this is where we can access other realms and meet our spirit guides.
The session includes a sharing circle – shamanic journey – gentle yoga stretches – free flow dance – guided relaxation and earth oracle cards. Wear loose comfortable clothing according to weather n the day, bring a blanket and something to lie on and a bottle of water.
Percussion welcome – rattles – tambourines, looking forward to welcoming you in circle. ESSENTIAL TO BOOK WITH NATASHA

Celebrating the harvest, the bounty we are blessed with from the Earth herself and that which we have cultivated and tended in our lives and has now come to fruition.
Counting our Blessings and honouring the Earth and our connection to her with songs and chants; sending healing out with our voices, reconnecting us to deeper parts of ourselves and All Our Relations.
An afternoon session of joyful songs and chants with a break for for tea and healthy snacks.
The songs are simple, yet powerful, especially when sung as a group. No experience necessary.
Suitable for beginners and those with more experience might enjoy adding harmony parts. We will also try some simple rounds.
We will start with simple warmups for breath, body and voice.
There may be some opportunity to add drums too for some of the songs, so if you have one you are invited to bring it to add to the healing energy.
We shall sing some of our familiar chants and some celebrating Lammas.
The songs are very meditative and usually felt as nurturing, joyful, uplifting and connective.
