Journey Into the World of Lucid Dreaming with Cacao, Light Machine and Gong Bath @ The Wonder Inn
Jul 8 @ 10:00 am – 5:30 pm

Summary Paragraph

You may have experienced individually the power of a Cacao ceremony, a gong bath, isochronic tones, Pandora Star Light Machine or mugwort tea but we suspect most of you will not have experienced them combined to create a powerful gateway into the realm of lucid dreaming!  We are pleased to bring you for the first time in Central Manchester Ladrhyn Bexx’s experiential workshop Journey into the World of Lucid Dreaming.  To read a full description of the event and to find out more about Lucid Dreaming click here.  Please note there are some restrictions so please read these in the full description before booking.

 

To support your journey into the world of lucid dreaming this workshop will harness the power of Cacao, mugwort tea, isochronic tones, a gong bath and a Pandora Star Light Machine.  All of this squeezed into one experiential day!

We daydream, dream of life, dream of success, love, happiness and of our fantasies.  In this workshop you will sink into the realm of Lucid Dreaming and learn how you can tap into your own power to Lucid Dream which can be used for, amongst other things, manifesting your heart’s desires and brain training (see here for a quick overview of how you can use Lucid Dreaming).

This one day event is experiential and we will start with a brief explanation of what Lucid Dreaming is. You will then be taken through a set of lucid dreaming experiences which will work to progressively take you into a deeper experience facilitated by, a gong bath, cacao, isochronic tones, group meditation and a Pandora Star Light Machine.  Later in the day we will be serving some mugwort tea (see here for more about mugwort) so that you can take carry on the lucid dreaming into the evening using a couple of free tracks you can download to enhance your home experience.

The Pandora Star Light Machine (Deep Trance Meditation Device) is ideal for facilitating fast reliable brainwave entrainment for a wide range of applications.  Just a few minutes under the light can be enough to change brainwave frequencies so you can go deeper into meditation and consciousness exploration.  See here for more about the Pandora Star Light Machine  You may already know cacao is the base ingredient for our beloved confectionary chocolate but did you also know in that in larger doses Cacao is a powerful heart opening, plant medicine that has been used in Shamanic ceremony for eons? The ancients of the south and central Americas would drink cacao to commune with their gods and similarly we can drink cacao to commune with our ’selves’. When we ingest this sacred bean we enable a deeper connection to our intuition and our inner guidance system.  Cacao releases energetic blocks in the body and coupled with the healing frequencies from the Gong Bath we experience a heart opening energetic clear out.  See here for more about Cacao.

The doors will open at 10.00 am with an opportunity to meet your fellow Lucid Dreamers and relax over a brew.  The workshop proper will start at 10:30.am.

The approximate timetable for the day (this may vary due to experiences or late arrivals):

We start off by making everyone feel welcomed and comfortable.

Sitting in a group circle we speak our intention and expectations. 5 x group Oms/Aums Cacao served per person and drunk Guided meditation and cord cutting  PandoraStar and Gongs  Lucid dreaming tips and tools Gong bath blindfolded  Break  Group sharing and more techniques  PandoraStar and Gongs  Break Sharing feedback, techniques  Breathwork, PandoraStar + group Reiki experience with music  sharing, techniques and information to take home  We end with a group circle hug and end in 7 x Oms/Aums
Please bring a blanket, pillow and yoga mat (if you have one but we do have some that we can lend).   We have blindfolds we can hand out if you want one, however you may want to bring your own. As we are having the Cacao Ceremony in the morning, we recommend that you have a light breakfast to maximise the effect of the cacao

We hope this day will whet your appetite to go even deeper into the amazing world of Lucid Dreaming and to support your journey we will be putting on a separate weekend retreat later on in the year. Ladrhyn Bexx an experienced Lucid Dream facilitator will be leading the day.  You can see Ladrhyn talking about work here.

WARNING:

Cacao

Cacao contains theobromine which stimulates the nervous system much in the same way as caffeine can. If you have sensitivity to caffeine then please consult us and we will discuss if you will be able to participate with a very low dosage.

Cacao can react with anti-depressants causing headaches so please let us know if you are on any medication before booking.

Cacao can also dilate your blood vessels increasing your heartbeat and reducing your blood pressure.  It also relaxes the smooth muscles in your bronchi, potentially relieving Asthma.

 

Pandora Star Light Machine

It contains a stroboscopic stimulus that should only ever be observed through closed eyelids. Epileptic seizures can be triggered with photosensitive persons.  It is strongly advised that you consult with a medical professional (such as a doctor) before using the device if you are in any doubt, or if you:

  • Have ever had any kind of seizure or epilepsy.  •Have ever had severe head injury or concussion.  •Are taking any medication.  •Suffer from heart or other health troubles which require medical treatment.  •Are pregnant.

Do not use the device if you have a cardiac pacemaker.

IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS ABOUT YOUR MEDICAL CONDITIONS THAT MAY BE AFFECTED BY EITHER THE CACAO OR THE LIGHT MACHINE, THEN PLEASE SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE OR LET US KNOW THAT YOU WILL NOT BE TAKING THE CACAO OR LIGHT TREATMENT.   IT IS STILL POSSIBLE TO TAKE PART IN THE DAY AND OBTAIN BENEFIT FROM THE OTHER EXERCISES AND TECHNIQUES.

You will be required to complete a disclaimer prior to participation in the day.  For the Pandora Star consent form see here.

Derbyshire Get in Touch With Yourself July 2017 @ Cratcliff Cottage
Jul 22 @ 1:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Derbyshire Get in Touch With Yourself July 2017 @ Cratcliff Cottage | England | United Kingdom

In this workshop we will work with platonic touch in a safe and nurturing obligation free environment which supports you to connect with yourself and others from a heart opened space.  Being able to connect with touch without sexualising it allows us to go back to a state of innocence and bliss of just being in our bodies.  In addition this allows us to learn about what is there for us in our relationship dynamics.  The environment that we work with is one of open-heartedness, fun and healing.

The workshop starts by working with boundaries (ours and yours) to promote confidence and allow you to authentically connect with what feels right for you and what touch you want or don’t want from others.  You will also have the opportunity to experience touch which you might not otherwise be able to have in a safe platonic obligation free environment, and to connect with the art of receiving.  There will be further opportunites to ask for other touch that you want.  This can be anything from a hand or a foot massage, a back rub or a cuddle, as long as it is within the boundaries of the others and the rules of the workshop.  Throughout the exercises you will be guided and supported to connect with yourself.

This workshop will be useful for those who want to learn to:

• Work with their boundaries

• Say “No,” without guilt

• Find their “Yes!”

• Connect with what they want and ask for it

• Obtain the benefits of platonic touch

• Improve their communications and social skills

• Build their confidence

• Be able to receive

• Work with self-acceptance

Touch is an instinctive, natural language that we can all speak and understand. It’s essential for stimulating our nervous system and promoting healthy physical development. It is also critical for our mental and social development.  We will work with the beneficial effects of conscious touch and the resultant natural release of the feel good hormone oxytocin to bring you to a place of peace, empowerment, growth and self-connection.  Did you know that it’s a proven fact that just twenty seconds of physical contact can lift your mood for the whole day as it releases oxytocin?  Find out more about oxytocin and its potential healing power here from our sister organisation The Cuddle Network..

Our aim is to leave you feeling relaxed, empowered, with your heart opened and soul nurtured.

We will do our best to gender balance this workshop but we cannot absolutely guarantee it.

This is a pre-book event only.

The doors will open at 1.00 pm with an opportunity to meet your fellow participants over non-alcoholic drinks.  The workshop proper will start at 1.30 pm after which there will be no admittance.

Conscious Touch Day – Wheel of Consent Day & Conscious Cuddles – Manchester @ The Wonder Inn
Jul 29 @ 9:30 am – 9:45 pm
We are delighted to be bringing to Manchester two wonderful experiential workshops that we have run successfully elsewhere which, when combined together make them even more powerful. You are very welcome to attend both but if you prefer you can attend each as a standalone workshop and still get a lot from them.
 
During the day we running our Wheel of Consent workshop: Tell Me What You Want What You Really, Really Want. In this workshop you will learn about how you relate to others in a clear way through the medium of platonic touch, which will allow you to explore, understand and express your authentic consent with clear communication. We devised this workshop together with the originator of the Wheel of Consent, Dr Betty Martin (www.bettymartin.org).
 
In the evening we will be running our signature conscious cuddles workshop Get in Touch with Yourself. In it you will experience and explore the benefits of platonic, nurturing touch and, if you attend the workshop earlier in the day, it is a great opportunity to practice and embody all that you have learned.
 
These workshops are:
• Clothed.
• Experiential – you will have the opportunity to practice and explore in a safe environment. It is only within the experience of touch that the Wheel of Consent theory makes sense.
• Respectiful of your boundaries – you never have to touch or be touched by anyone or anywhere you don’t want to. In fact, you will be shown how to be clearer about that for yourself and learn tools that help you to express your boundaries.
• Confidence boosting, allowing you to say “No” and “Yes” without guilt and from a place of integrity.
• Supportive in improving your confidence and to strengthen communication and social skills, particularly in asking for what you truly want.
• Accepting. Allowing you to start wherever you are, whether you are new to the idea or wildly experienced, it doesn’t matter. Wherever you start, you will find a new level of awareness and self acceptance.
• Fun. Giving you games to take home that allow you to play within your boundaries which you can make sensual, playful or any other quality you wish to bring to them.
• Enablers that allow you to receive the benefits of platonic touch – see here for some of these benefits: http://www.sacredlighttantra.com/oxytocin/
 
So come and join us and find out, amongst other things, what you want, what you really, really want!
 
We welcome all genders over the age of 18, any sexual orientation whether you are single or in a relationship. These events have no nudity or intimate touch.
 
This is a pre-book event only.
Registration starts at 9.30 am for a 10.00 am prompt start and finishes at 9.45 pm for the combined day/evening. It is recommended that you bring your own food as we have relatively short breaks because we have a lot to fit in! Also please bring a blanket.
 
Our aim is to leave you feeling relaxed, empowered, with your heart opened and soul nurtured.
 
Here are some of the testimonials we have received from previous attendees – http://www.sacredlighttantra.com/testimonials-conscious-touch/
 
For full details of the individual workshops see here (Wheel of Consent – https://www.meetup.com/www-thecuddlenetwork-com/events/237704081/ ) and here (Conscious Cuddles – https://www.meetup.com/www-thecuddlenetwork-com/events/237705304/).
