March 2nd: Living Layers Beneath Our Feet with Kate Smart NOTE: 2pm Start
Kate will explore the world of deep time beneath our feet: how the earth formed and informs us.
This session will be a practical exploration of the living layer beneath our feet, and some of the magical beings that inhabit this earthy realm. The pedosphere is a complex and interconnected world that supports us in every way, but is often overlooked and under-appreciated. From it arise all plants and animals and it therefore holds the information of deep time and our ancestors. Kate is a garden designer and Chair of Malvern Dowsers.

May 11th: Journey To Ithaca with Nicky Milligan PLEASE NOTE: Change of date!
The poem Journey to Ithaca describes a journey which I adapt to my own life journey…I will talk about that, focusing on what led me to become a Healer, Reflexologist, Reiki Master etc etc….as well as qualifying as a Nurse, Midwife & Health Visitor. I move along a middle way, drawing on what treatment suits people individually, with a great respect for orthodox medicine and complementary therapies. I do not diagnose but understand how the NHS operates.
June 1st: Meditation with Lisa Fullbright Cossey
This talk is an exploration of the many different ways that people can meditate or practice mindfulness. We look at the three mains types of meditation and explore how they differ and how each can be helpful to our mental and physical well-being. The talk goes on to explore what is meant by the term “altered consciousness”, and to look at the emerging science around brainwave frequencies and states. We discuss the use of plant medicine in achieving altered states and explore the necessity for right use of these substances. The talk looks at how our apparently individual consciousness is part of much greater fields of consciousness that meditation can open us to. Finally this talk will explore whether dowsers are accessing meditative states whilst dowsing. This talk has some basic workshop elements where the audience are invited to try out some different types of meditation if they wish.
Lisa is an experienced speaker with a dynamic and fun style, Lisa runs the Bright Lights School of Spiritual Training, teaching classes in spiritual development, healing and working with guidance.
