Now that the schools are starting after the summer break our thoughts
seem naturally to turn towards Autumn and from the weather and temperature,
so is the natural world too! In keeping with that turn within, we have
lots on offer to encourage and hopefully educate you on your spiritual
path through life.
Our Tuesday evening SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT GROUP has a few spaces
that have become available.
This Group is for all those, of all abilities, who wish to explore their
We explore all kinds and all levels of development, with an ongoing
programme of activities that are agreed on by those attending.
It is always fun and filled with laughter as well as offering you much
to sink your teeth into. There are regular meditations, guided journeys,
readings and a great deal else besides.
If you would like to join our merry band please contact us for a chat.
Meetings are from 7.30 - 10pm and cost is just £5 per week.
Below you will also see details of the release on Amazon of Steve's
book 'PRACTICAL MEDITATION'.
In tandem with this, we are presenting a 'MEDITATION SEMINAR'
on 12TH September,
which has just 2 places available if you would like to find out how
to meditate properly and effectively - something not as hard as you
might think but that many never get to grips with.
Plus we have some great workshops for the Autumn, designed to increase
your magical enjoyment and experience of life.
We look forward to seeing you at an event soon and in the meantime we
wish you well on your path.
See you soon!

NOW - THE TAROT THERAPY DECK
Steve is pleased
to announce the release of The Tarot Therapy Cards and the accompanying
book 'The Tarot Therapy Deck'.
Two years in the making, this is the fulfillment of a long-held vision
for Steve. Here is the info -
Deck has been created to express the underlying energy of each Tarot
card, allowing the individual to relate to them in their own way. The
cards show this energy in the natural world, whih we are part of and
intrinsically linked to.
It is this energy that we have an instinctive realtionship with. By
relating to this connection through the cards we can utilise this causal
level to absorb, accept and grow.
These cards then become a therapeutic guide, inspiring us to live a
life of empowered passion. The structure of the Tarot deck is the same
as that of the human being and this Tarot deck is a celebration
of the sacred energy that exists in all of us and the world in which
we live. Tarot Therapy Cards follow the traditional structure of the
Tarot, with 78 cards divided into Major and Minor Arcana.
The four suits of the Minor Arcana are Earth, Water, Air and Fire. The
traditional 'court' cards become 'Compound' Cards, being a combination
of two elemental energies.
The Major Arcana depict the greater forces of natural energy. Unique
and beautiful, this Tarot deck strips the Tarot bare and opens up a
new world and a new level of therapeutic energy to Tarot readings.
The cards are supplied shrink-wrapped and come complete with our hand-made
Tarot Therapy Bag, made from tea-dyed natural calico and printed with
the Tarot Therapy logo, fastened with natural twine.
Here are a few
sample images of the cards:

There are a great many people who find they cannot 'do' Meditation very
well and this can have a real impact on their spiritual growth and development,
as well as simply hindering their ability to relax.
By looking at the Who, What, Why, When, Where and especially How, of
Meditation, this Seminar will give you the ability to perform an effective
and productive meditation.
Irrespective of your previous experience, knowledge or ability, we will
explore the methods and benefits of Meditation in a safe and supportive
Attendance at this Seminar may offer you the chance of discovering a
whole new world, as well as relaxation, peace within, raised vibration
and an altered state of consciousness unlike any you have experienced
26TH - YOU MUST BE PSYCHIC
This workshop will give you a chance to develop your psychic ability,
regardless of your level of awareness or ability.
Our approach is that everyone is psychic, this being a natural part
of the human condition and like any other muscle, we have to train it
to develop it.
This workshop will dedicate a day to helping you achieve this. To do
so, we will use techniques to locate and clarify your own psychic senses,
safely and effectively.
We will try a variety of psychic techniques including - Dowsing, Channelled
Writing, Remote Viewing, Psychometry and Scrying.
These are some of the lesser-known psychic skills and they are really
effective in enabling us to open up and enhance our natural psychic
Come along and join us for this amazing day and discover a new world!
24TH - SACRED LIVING
The natural world offers us everything we need to live fulfilled and
abundant lives, at all levels of Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual.
Over the years however, we have become distanced from the energy and
power of this, what it can bring to us and how we can live in harmony
with these forces.
This workshop will focus
on the different energies that come to us through the Wheel of the Year.
The turning points through the year, the Solstices, Equinoxes and Fire
Festivals present us opportunities to adjust and embrace these sacred
energies of life.
On this day we will learn how we can use these, and integrate them into
our selves and lives and what will happen as a result.
Come along and learn how the natural world is part of us, what it can
do for us and why the Summer Solstice is about much more than partying
- MAGIC AND SPELLS
The time between Samhain
(Hallowe-en) and Beltane (Mayday) is regarded spiritually and magically
as the dark half of the year,
when we look inwards and follow the lead of the natural world by exploring
the worlds and kingdom we find there.
In keeping with this, this day will explore the magic of the four Element
of nature - Earth, Water, Air and Fire, as we learn about and how to
work with the beings of those elements -
the Gnomes, Undines, Sylphs and Salamanders respectively.
Far from being a fantasy these unseen workers of the natural world can
welcome our interaction and this day can allow a whole new world of
wonder, enchantment and magic to open up.
Come along and gain an insight into and experience of the magical world
most only watch on films!
AND LASTLY FOR 2015
