Chakra Healing Circle & Sound Bath

with Sue Quigley & Maria Ryan

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.

Dec 10th – Solar Plexus Chakra

1.5 hours £18

Workshop Practitioners


Maria Ryan

Alchemy Crystal Bowl Practitioner

Maria came into contact with the alchemy crystal singing bowls 10 years ago at a wellbeing show in London. After experiencing their unique ability to help support the body and mind facilitate a deep state of relaxation, she undertook practitioner training to be able to share this knowledge with others. 

Maria is also a qualified psychotherapist. Combining her understanding of psychotherapy, psychology and the alchemy bowls, Maria’s approach is centred around calming the nervous system, whilst also helping you to reconnect with your physical body and become grounded in the here and now. 

Sometimes we need tools to help us achieve a state of relaxation and it’s not always easy to keep a daily meditation practice even though we know the benefits are vast for our physical and mental wellbeing. This is why Maria believes the crystal singing bowls are so special, as they allow an alternative way to connect and tune in, to quiet the mind and truly listen to how we feel.

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.
