Chakra Healing Circle & Sound Bath

After proving so popular our chakra healing circle and sound bath is back for another year!

Chakras are the energy centres within the human body. There are seven main Chakras and each correspond to specific organs as well as physical, emotional, mental and spiritual states of being that influence all areas of your life – they contain pure healing energy, what yogis refer to as ‘Prana’ – this healing energy is all around us and within us, to keep us healthy, happy and vibrant.

Each workshop we will focus on a specific Chakra, what it is, it’s implications and the associated colours and crystals. We will do a guided healing meditation based on the specific Chakra, followed by an alchemy crystal sound bath led by Maria.

The alchemy crystal sound bath will help to deepen and strengthen your work with your chakras and provide you with just what you need at that time.

You will leave with your chosen crystal and information handout with some ideas on how to work with your chakras at home.

Mandala Workshop

To celebrate the arrival of Spring we are holding our own Mandala Workshop.

Literally translating as “circle” in Sanskrit (the ancient language of India), Mandalas are geometric designs which have been used as spiritual symbols for thousands of years, primarily in Buddhism and Hinduism. In their simplest form, Mandalas are concentric circles (usually within a square) which are centred around a single point and dissected into sections. These are then filled with smaller shapes and patterns and progress into highly complex paintings with captivating detail and vibrantly rich colours. Traditionally, they would have been either painted onto paper or cloth with threads, drawn into sand, fashioned in bronze, or built in stone. 

Mandalas are believed to represent both our internal and external universe, symbolising the circle of life and how everything within lifeis connected. Traditionally, Mandalas would have provided a spiritual map for the individual viewer, guiding them through a variety of practices (such as yoga and meditation) away from a life of suffering and towards a life of peace, or ‘enlightenment’.

These days, Mandalas are more commonly used for the purpose of mindful meditation, to allow the creative mind to run free, to evoke feelings of calm and to enhance concentration. In more recent years, Mandalas have even inspired yoga classes; these often consist of a dynamic flow which utilises the mat in a 360° way and aims to balance the body as a whole, incorporating all four elements (Earth, Air, Fire and Water).

This workshop will begin with a Mandala yoga practice to get the body moving, followed by a discussion about the history and philosophy of Mandalas and a tutorial in how to mindfully draw your own. The intention of this workshop is not only to teach you more about a beautiful ancient tradition, but also to allow your innate creativity to flow and help you discover new ways to incorporate mindfulness into your everyday life, enhancing your overall wellbeing.

2 hours – £28 (All equipment will be provided)

Sunday 29th March 10am – 1pm

Workshop Practitioners


Sue Quigley

Heartcore Healing: Energy Healer & Spiritual Life Coach

Sue is an Energy Healer working with individuals and groups to help bring about restorative change and wellbeing. She works in a very intuitive way, often able to address the underlying pathological emotional issue that can be causing problems. Sue is not prescriptive in her work as she knows each individual is just that: individual with unique beliefs and imprints that have been developed from past and current lifetimes as well as ancestral lineage and karma.

Presenting issues can disguise a myriad of emotional causes that can be buried deep within the subconscious mind; this means that common sense and logic are not always the best approach.

Sue is a certified Usui Reiki and Angelic Reiki practitioner with a diploma in crystal healing. She is also attuned to Alchemy Energetics: Spiritual Level, this is a powerful, high vibrational advanced healing system.

For one to one work please contact Sue directly.

Saskia Morris

Yoga Teacher

Saskia started practising yoga four years ago when she lived in Australia. She attended regular classes and fell in love with how it made her feel, both physically and mentally. Her philosophy to life is very much based around the concept of balance, and finds yoga and meditation to be a great way of maintaining this.

In 2017 Saskia set up ‘Body in Mind’, initially as a personal training business. Although Saskia enjoyed working as a PT, something was missing; so, in 2019, she decided to train as a yoga teacher in Greece. It was one of the most intense yet wonderful experiences she has ever had.

Since then, she has been teaching classes and private sessions, working with all ages as well as with people with disabilities, injuries and hearing impediments. She has hosted local events, taught at festivals and completed further training courses. She truly believes that yoga is open to anyone and everyone, and it is her aim to encourage more people to incorporate it into their lives as a way of nourishing mind, body and soul.
