Feeling Alive and Present

Kia Ora <<First Name>>,

We are a spirit having a physical journey and the change, growth and transformation encountered along the way is as much a physical experience as it is a spiritual one. Beneath our feet is papatuanuku Earth Mother, understood by indigenous cultures to be the living expression of the Mother energy, supporting all who dwell on her with nourishment and life. Beyond the allure and glitz of technology, we can be reminded of what it is to feel alive and present with the touch of the ground beneath our feet and feeling the movement and vibrant energy that is all around us. This month we explore the theme of physicality and enhanced wellbeing through your connection with nature.

Preparation for the 10th Medicine Woman Gathering Workshop and Retreat 2016 is underway. The dates for this weekend event are 30th September to 2nd October. This brand new teaching cycle introduces an experiential weekend where you will discover the ‘rooms of power’ within your ‘metaphysical house.’ Working with the forces of nature, you will learn how to clear blockages within these rooms that prevent you from stepping into your full power and living life as a ‘powerhouse.’ Bookings are now open and more information is available on the website.

With much aroha,

Tending to Our Earth Temple

Our physical body is known as our earth temple – its wellness and vitality is essential when it comes to expressing our full potential both physically and spiritually. Our body is very adaptable and superbly equipped for the task, however if we don't treat it well things can start to go awry.
