 Animal Healing & Communication Workshop

Saturday 21st April 2018

10.30 to 4.30

Cost £85

As well as working as a Medium & healer I have lived around, worked, healed & studied animals all of my life & have a lot of respect for them. Some of my experiences have been great & others eventful. They always say you can never guarantee how things will go when you work with animals & children which is extremely true which is also what makes this workshop very good fun & both of these are my natural passion.

Animals instinctively know how they feel - when a dog has a tummy upset, it will not eat for 24 sometimes, 48 hours until the germ has passed. When animals know their time is up they often go away from the home, often out into the cold night & hide ready to die. If only us as humans followed our animals friends & lived by our instincts which we are more than capable of doing we would have much easier lives. The use of antibiotics (although sometimes are very much needed) could easily be reduced.

I have designed this animal healing & communication workshop to help those who are closely connected with animals, whether purely just the love of them or working with them & living with them in their daily lives, to help them with the healing of animals.

You would have needed to have taken Reiki I level to be able to attend this workshop. If you need to learn this please let me know but if you are interested in animal communication & healing you will gain greatly from the experiences of learning Reiki and also crystal healing.

We will be covering many things such as animal communication & healing and the different chakras (energy centres on an animal's body), how to heal and when, how often, following colour, the safety of healing animals, how to heal dangerous animals, dealing with an animals surroundings & diet which is very important.

Very importantly we will be learning animal communication & behaviour which will also help with people behaviour & healing of different problems.

We will be touching on different herbs which may be great for animal's wellbeing.

Various crystals & the way they should be used for animals & also which ones to use.

Keeping records which is so important

Dealing with owners

And lots, lots more, this is a fun but also educational workshop & you will also be encouraged to do healing on various animals.

You will definitely see how the healing works on animals before your eyes.

Animals are really receptive to Reiki healing. This workshop is to teach you how to give healing to the animal kingdom. Animals so easily give us unconditional love, they do not question and also accept the healing far more than people. This workshop will teach you the protocol; the safety aspect involved in healing animals both, big and small, tame & dangerous, and will also teach you how to look at the animals home & surroundings. We will cover the chakras of the animal & their aura to release any blockages that prevent the energy flowing freely which in turn will affect the animal's health & happiness. You will also be taught how to tune into the animals feelings. This is also a practical workshop so you will be giving healing to animals during the day. We will be using Reiki healing & also shown how to use crystals for animal healing.  

This is always a really enjoyable & lovely day.

"They always say never work with children or animals so expect the unexpected on this day???"

Learn to make your own Smudge Sticks, Herbal Smudge Feathers, Incense & Prayer Ties

Saturday 2nd June 2018

10.30am to 4.30pm

Cost: £83 to include all materials

9c) Handcraft Herbal Smudge Sticks, Incense & Smudge Feathers

We will be crafting with herbs I have grown from seed, with intent for their purpose and healing, together with wild foragings from local, good energy places.

Weather permitting, some of the day will be working amongst the herbs and flowers, in the quiet, meditation and healing part of our garden.

The energy in our homes can affect our health and happiness

Smudging is the burning of sacred herbs, woods or resins to purify and cleanse the energies in our homes. How many times have you entered a home or area and suddenly felt sad, angry or extremely tired when you didn't before. This is sensing the negative/stagnant energy of the place. Maybe someone has been depressed, arguing, ill or overworked in there. As we clean our homes, it is equally important to cleanse the energy of our homes, workplaces, our auric field and our animals'. This workshop is designed to help you craft your own personal, different varieties of smudge sticks, incense, smudge fans and prayer ties and the correct way of using them. However, it is designed to take you a step further in connecting with the energy of the herbs that choose you.

What you can expect to experience:

• Beautiful guided meditation to connect with the energies of the garden herbs.

• Learn the spiritual energies of the plants, which ones call to you and why.

• Native American smudging traditions to enhance energy clearing, blessings and protection

• How to make the most with the herbs from your own gardens

• How to craft different types of herbal smudge sticks, incense, smudging fans and prayer ties

• Smudging ritual

• How to smudge yourself, your home, workplaces, crystals and spiritual tools and your herbal garden,

• Different life changing events and the times to smudge

• How to smudge during a healing session

• Ethical ways of harvesting and how to dry herbs and retain colour and oils

• What makes smudging so powerful?

• Craft your own smudge fan to use when smudging

• Craft herbal prayer ties to aid the release in your own personal healing process and how to use them.

• My handcrafted healing flower sprays will be available to purchase

My spiritual practice is run on the edge of the New Forest and neighbouring old towns of Wimborne, Cranborne and Ringwood. They are all steeped with wise, old ways, traditions, folklore and country ways.
I have worked spiritually for many years and strongly believe in the healing properties of the wise old ways, working with universal energies, crystals, herbs and healing. I have used them extensively in my own life, work and for animals and will be sharing some of this knowledge with you on this workshop.

Being a Medium, Healer (DHWSA), Reiki Master and Spiritual Teacher, I do 1-2-1 readings & healings & teach different spiritual workshops. Such as all levels of Reiki, Crystal Healing, Animal Healing and Communication, weekly Meditation /Development Circles, Beginners Tarot & Palmistry courses and various Herbal Wisdom Workshops.

Cost: £83 to include all materials required and light refreshments.
(Payable in instalments if required). A £35 deposit (non refundable) is required to book your place.

If you would like to make it into a relaxing weekend break there is local accommodation available:
Shepherds Huts at the quaint country inn Druscillas, Wigbeth, Horton, Wimborne, BH21 7JH
The Long House, a quaint 500 year old thatched cottage, in the hamlet of Mannington, Dorset

 Beginners Palmistry Course 

 New date to be set shortly

(this workshop is held over 6 weeks) 


Whether you want to learn a little bit of palmistry to read your own, friends and family's palms or to work at a local charity bazaar or go even deeper and study the subject seriously and become a professional palmist this first course of mine will help you on your way.  I have not kept back any professional secrets but have tried to write it as simple but as full as possible to help you learn it easily.  I hope you enjoy your new pathway.

It is a good idea to take an imprint of your hand and keep it with your notes for reference and you will also see how it changes as you change your pathways.

Palmistry is a science that has been used and also neglected for many years and it can be very advantageous to anyone who takes the time to study it.  To ignore its wonderful signs is to shut your eyes to the advice and warnings which nature has given us.  The lines are constantly changing and show different things as we change in our lives.  They can indicate our past present and future lives and the past, present and future in this life and also shows health issues, ongoing and also what to look out for.

Many people scoff palmistry as being untrue and think it has no true meaning, but how many people judge an acquaintance by their face or expression or by the way they walk or talk or other outward visible signs.  We often know someone is upset or suffering from their face.  The palms are no less a true guide and in fact can be more accurate.  They can be a very valuable source of advice in private or business matters for those who care to study them.

                        This is a really interesting but also fun workshop
