Chakra Healing Circle & Sound Bath (Monthly)

Chakras are the energy centres within and around the human body. There are seven main Chakras that 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. 

You can think of the Chakras as free flowing energy wheels or discs and ultimate wellness and harmony happens when they are aligned and open. There are conditions that can indicate blocked Charkas, as well as implications on being too open – as ever it is all about balance and intention.

The Chakras we will be focussing on each month are as follows:

May: Root, Jun: Sacral, Jul: Solar Plexus, Aug: Heart,  Sep: Throat,  Oct: Third Eye, Nov: Crown

Sue Quigley will give two guided meditations as well as practical information on that specific Chakra, you will then have the ultimate treat of a beautiful sound bath led by Maria Ryan.

1.5 hours £18 – Price includes a handout and crystal to take home with you. Held on the last Tuesday of every month.

Thursday 7th November 12.30pm – 2pm. This course meets every Thursday for 5weeks.

Thai Yoga Massage Workshop with Carol Stokes

This Introductory Workshop is a wonderful opportunity to get to know the art of Thai Yoga Massage while having fun giving and receiving some beautiful, meditative bodywork.

Carol, who has been teaching Yoga since 1998, has an infectious passion for Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage and brings a mix of knowledge, warmth, kindness and humour to her classes.

Thai Yoga Massage has ancient roots in Yoga and Ayurveda. It is a holistic therapy that works on a deeper level than purely the physical body. Working on the 10 Sen lines, similar to the Chinese Meridians, practitioners aim to balance the body’s energy systems and clear blockages, bringing overall well being.

Treatments consist of a mixture of acupressure and gentle assisted yoga stretches, with the client wearing soft comfortable clothing, and the therapist working with a meditative flow. It is a wonderful experience for both giver and receiver!

This workshop will focus on hands-on learning. You will learn a sequence of simple but deeply effective stretches and exercises that are safe and easy to give, and feel fantastic! Whether you want to find out more about Thai Yoga Massage before booking a treatment, or you want to learn some techniques to share with loved ones and friends or if you just want to enjoy some time connecting with others, this workshop is a wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning.

2hours £24

You will need to bring with you: 2 cushions or pillows, and if you would like to take notes a pad and pen.

Healing Harp Sound Bath

In this special Harp sound bath you will set the conditions for a return back to a deeper yet lighter sense of self.

The session will begin with an invitation to return to the body with a guided meditation. Shortly after, Jo will play the custom made healing Harp which has been hand crafted in rich Redwood and tuned to frequencies to allow us to access joy, playfulness and alignment to high frequency light.

All of this will be laying down with very little to do but ‘be’. The session will end with an invitation to integrate the session with some breathwork and a cuppa!

No meditation experience is necassary and everything is an invitation. However you show up you’ll be welcomed.

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.

Bekah Sheppard

Owner of La Luna

Bekah has always been into crystals even from a little girl and was intrigued by their beauty and healing properties. Crystals are part of Earths earliest formations and have the most orderly structure to ever exist in nature, they respond to the inputs of all the different energies around them, leading them to oscillate and emit specific vibratory frequencies. This energy they emit is consistent due to them being one of the most orderly and stable forms of matter in the Universe. 

We are all made up of energies that are constantly changing based on our moods, behaviours and our surroundings or people we are surrounded by. Crystals also give off energy but because of their perfect structure and formation, their energy is constant, not changing like ours. Because of this, they can help us rebalance our own energies.

Bekah also runs a small shop called La Luna, situated at number 93 Mortimer Street in Herne Bay, opened in October 2016. The main aim of opening La Luna was to spread awareness on natural well-being, self healing and self development.
