Psychic and Spiritual Development – Meditation for Connection @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Apr 15 @ 18:00 BST – 20:00 BST
Psychic and Spiritual Development - Meditation for Connection @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK

We are all born with psychic abilities, some of us are able to readily ‘tap’ into this gift naturally; however, it often lays dormant within others, and requires a little bit of assistance for them to access these hidden abilities.

Whether you are new to psychic development and wishing to learn more, or you are an ‘old hand’ looking to enhance your existing psychic abilities; our regular monthly psychic development workshops are specially designed to guide you along your individual journey in a safe and supportive environment, at a pace that is the most comfortable for you.

In this meetup, we will be calling in our Guides and connecting with them through meditation as well working with ways to strengthen that connection.

Throughout this series of workshops, we will explore a range of topics including and not limited to the below:

  • working with the different clair senses (clairaudience, clairvoyance, clairsentience),

  • working with the human energy system, auras and chakras,

  • the importance of grounding and protection

  • obtaining information using the tarot and other cards

  • dowsing

  • what spirit guides are and how to connect with them through meditation

  • connecting with your gatekeeper

  • connecting with crystals

  • developing mediumship and psychometry skills

All our subsequent workshops will be designed so you can build on or reinforce your newly learned abilities, so they are ideal for individuals who wish to come on a monthly basis. However, they will provide a solid foundation if taken on their own.

The cost is £12.00 + booking fee (please see our refund policy):

See you soon!

Love & Blessings

A Taste of Bioenergetics Introductory Evening 19:00-21:30 @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Apr 22 @ 19:00 BST – 21:30 BST
A Taste of Bioenergetics Introductory Evening 19:00-21:30 @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK

We are delighted to offer you this stand-alone in-person introduction to bioenergetics evening during which we will guide you through an experiential introduction to some key elements of bioenergetics.  It also serves as an introduction to our yearlong Bioenergetics Training.

Bioenergetics is not to be confused with the body of work that comes from biochemistry but comes from Wilhelm Reich and the therapy developed by his students like Alexander Lowen, Gerda Boyesen, Ron Kurtz and David Boadella.

Bioenergetics in general seeks to release old trauma, habits, and unconscious defensive attitudes and to liberate our life energy for aliveness, pleasure and for self-actualization. It seeks to change the base of our existence from an attitude based on fear and the unconsciousness to a mindfulness of our choices and an ability to express ourselves from our heart, our sex and our spirit.

More specifically Bioenergetics is a self-exploration through becoming aware of tensions in your body. These tensions are created by the energies of past formative experience which are imprinted on your body.  These create your character, the person you became under the influence of your parents and your society.  By becoming aware of this we can release the tension and free up your energy to choose life in each moment. Thus, you are able to free up a huge amount of energy for your aliveness, creativity, pleasure and joy in life.  Allowing you to create a conscious path to fulfil your dreams.

We aim that the evening will be fun, full of learning and surprises. Through a series of gentle exercises, alone, in pairs and as a group you are invited to experience some of what bioenergetics is.

This event is based on the work of one of Europe’s leading teachers, John Hawken at The Paths of Transformation, who has worked with bioenergetics for over 40 years both as a therapist and course leader.

The doors open at 6:30pm and the event starts at 7:00pm.

There is no gender balancing at this workshop.

We create a safe space where you are invited to do as much as feels comfortable for you.   Wear loose, comfortable clothes you can move freely in.

No partner is required and everyone is invited to work with different people in order to enjoy a greater range of experiences. If you attend with a partner or friend, you are welcome to work together for the whole event or whatever portion you wish.

The cost is as follows (please see our refund policy):

Early Bird (first 12 places) – £19 + Booking fee

Full Price – £22 + Booking fee

Gong Bath with Gong Holistic @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Apr 26 @ 19:30 BST – 20:30 BST
Gong Bath with Gong Holistic @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK

Craig is a trusted and respected, elder, teacher and guide with forty years experience in creating sound-scapes, a wisdom carrier for community, growth and transformation. He will manifest a sound journey for you to travel on within a safe, sacred environment that brings healing to your mind, body and soul. 

While gongs have been around for thousands of years, this practice is relatively new in that the science, a practice that utilizes wave forms and frequencies has only been available to us for the past few decades, through which we have learned to work with our own physiology and DNA..
Today, enthusiasts believe that gong baths can help reduce stress and liberate emotional blockages. Scientific evidence suggests that certain forms of sound therapy prompt damaged human DNA strands to repair themselves. Some tones are thought to promote vitality and healing, and also to enhance happiness.
PLEASE arrive 15 mins early for the session as you will need this time to settle. Please enter quietly if you are late, it’s fine.
Let me know in advance if you have any queries regarding the suitability of a gong bath for you.
As your heartbeat lowers when you relax during a session, so does your core body temperature. Please bring your warmest blankets, duvet or even a sleeping bag as some often do! This will make your overall experience much more pleasurable.
Come and join us for this amazing 1 Hour relaxation. Not suitable for children under the age of thirteen, people with pacemakers and pregnancy in their first trimester.

Goddess Embodiment Ritual – for women, femmes and NBs in female bodies @ The Pathways Studio
Apr 27 @ 13:00 BST – 16:00 BST
Goddess Embodiment Ritual - for women, femmes and NBs in female bodies @ The Pathways Studio

Having been born a woman, I (Paulina, these days she/it), like so many of us have been subject to strong conditioning to do with what is, and isn’t appropriate for one like me. Plus all sorts of drawbacks that come with being “the weaker gender” of course. Over the years and decades I rebelled against it all quite effectively, adopting all sorts of qualities that are typically connected with the masculine pole – confidence, focus, sense of direction, ambition, clarity, assertiveness and more. While this continues to serve me well to this day, I long for spaces where I feel safe enough to surrender fully to my inner woman, be with her wildness, her gentleness, and all possible flavours in between. Where I can  lay down all the armour of my masculine, protecting my feminine, and fly freely. 

This Ritual will provide a space where, as sisters, perhaps slightly hardened by life’s challenges on the outside – while bursting with sweet feminine juices deep within, can do just that. If you feel called to join us and be celebrated for your inner radiance, please prepare by choosing a Goddess/Divine feminine figure mythical or historical* OR feminine archetype** that particularly inspires you at this time. Bring the kinds of clothes and accessories she might wear (or that your very own version of her would!), one or two attributes symbolic of her powers she likes to use. The Ritual will provide a perfect opportunity to taste these powers while you transform yourself to embody Her, to be worshipped and celebrated by fellow sisters in a way which most suits you. 

You are then at choice whether to carry the embodiment of your chosen figure/archetype/Goddess to the Temple afterwards (attended by fellow Goddesses and Gods due to its Roman Feast theme) or simply take it into your Saturday evening – and days to follow! – elsewhere. Whichever you choose, before the Ritual is finished, we will create an anchor so that you can call on the same powers and feel them flowing through you in any challenging situation in your inner or outer life. 

*if you’d like inspiration, I highly recommend Meggan Watterson’s Divine Feminine oracle cards you can find here https://encr.pw/divine-feminine

**when it comes to archetypes of all kinds, this card deck may be very helpful https://l1nq.com/archetypes

Roman Feasting Temple @ The Pathways Studio
Apr 27 @ 18:30 BST – 23:59 BST
Roman Feasting Temple @ The Pathways Studio

Long gone are the days of our Roman ancestors, feasting on exquisite morsels of foods while lounging around, contemplating music and poetry. Or are they? Intentionally prepared, stunning food has been a way to come together, express love, appreciation, sensuality and get us in the mood for feasting of other kinds for centuries. This Temple promises to bring back the most beautiful aspects of feasting and whet your appetite for sensual pleasures of all kinds – both those platonic and those erotic. 

Please come dressed as (or bearing attributes of) your favourite Goddess, God or Divine figure and familiar with their unique qualities so you can embody them in your interactions with others throughout the evening. A plain Roman toga (which can be ordered online or even made with a white bed sheet!) is a beautiful alternative to a more elaborate costume. ALSO please bring a couple of portions of exquisite vegetarian food you feel inspired to talk about and share with others. If not a cook, please bring a gourmet shop bought snack of some sort such as high quality dark chocolate, exotic fruit or ice cream which could be best eaten with the help of – or even off the body part of! 🔥 – another. 

Flavoursome foods with surprising flavours, spices and/or containing aphrodisiacs are particularly welcome! 

Let love making through (and with!) food begin, in a true, beautifully indulgent, Roman style 🍓🧁🌶️ 🔥

What to expect from a Temple event?

Following a couple of rituals and embodied consent exercises, there will be ample opportunity to explore being with others in all sorts of contexts. Temples often have a rep for being sexually charged spaces. While they can be, they absolutely don’t have to. One of the most beautiful facets of these events that each one is unique and unfolds according to the combined flow of  energies present in the space. Your experience will depend on where you are on your inner journey, interactions with beings you encounter, and, importantly, a degree to which you are able to stay present and in a state of curiosity/openness to each moment as it unfolds. Personally, I see them more as a sanctuary of connection in all its facets.

Some things that are completely beautiful and appropriate to do at a Temple:

  • take in the space. Witness what is happening, not just in the space between humans but also within you. Plenty of times I found peace and nourishment doing just that.
  • get social with like hearted humans. Talk about stuff of life just because it feels so good or have deeper, intimate conversations we rarely take time to have.
  • get sensual. Temples, in my books, always encourage fully embodied experience. This can take all sorts of dimensions: maybe you feel like a sensual dance. Maybe you want to touch yourself mindfully and experience your body in a safe space (which is completely appropriate). Maybe you’d like to give to and receive from others all types of sensual touch that we rarely get to experience, even in our friendships and sex lives.
  • unleash your inner animal. Feeling like a play fight or a feisty tickling/scratching contest? You’re in the right place! There’s a chance your inner beast is feeling sexy in which case why not..
  • get your sexual juices fully flowing. This could mean so many things! Many beings typically want to experience others very slowly, starting with an energetic connection for example, and moving into a more physical and expressive.
  • whip up your inner kinkster. Do you like dressing up? Using impact and/or sensual play toys? Role playing power dynamic scenarios? Temple is a beautiful place to play in this way, strictly within boundaries of everyone involved.

We are friendly and welcoming of diverse age, race, gender expressions as well as different body shapes and types of preferred sexual activity. The rules are:

  • no alcohol or mind altering substances during and 12h before the event.
  • keep checking in with yourself and any others involved: does this still feel like a fully body yes? Might I/we like to pause, take a break or do something else?
  • attunement to the reality of another. Yes, everyone in a Temple is strictly responsible for their own experience and maintaining their boundaries moment to moment. And yet: the only way to interact with another beautifully is by paying attention to their expression and body language moment to moment.

Testimonials from past participants:

I really want you to know how immensely profoundly healing my experience was at last night’s temple. For almost all of my adult life, sexuality has been a source of deep unhappiness for me (sexuality being something to be ashamed of, to be suppressed, and which has caused so much misery for me). I’m so overwhelmingly grateful to have discovered these temple events, and last night’s temple was a huge huge life-transforming experience for me. It transcended anything I could possibly have hoped for. It was one of the most profoundly wonderful beautiful joyful loving intensely-pleasurable liberating healing euphoric experiences of my entire life. (…) I feel like my life has been profoundly irreversibly changed by this experience.

M.

A wonderful, well held evening spent with a diverse group of like-minded souls. The event had everything, warm hosts, delicious cacao and snacks, interesting conversations, and very juicy, sensual and delicious interactions.

A.

Having only been to one temple night previously that didn’t seem to resonate, I was hesitant and anxious about attending another. However, I needn’t have worried. As soon as I arrived, I was warmly greeted by Paulina, Margot and their helpers and immediately felt welcomed and included. After savouring some cacao and partaking in some introductory exercises to get everyone more acquainted, it turned into a beautiful warm loving evening with copious amounts of social, sensual and intimate exchanges. Can’t wait for the next one.

P.

I was made to feel very welcome, despite being late to arrive, not just by the hosts but by everyone present. The acceptance of me as a person, probably at the extreme upper end of the age range present, was also profound. I had never been to anything of this type before, and for me the ceremony, the exercises on consent and then the free interactions were healing for me – especially as I have spent my entire adult life feeling unworthy of anyone’s sexual attention.

R.

Paulina, my heartfelt thanks for creating such a rich, gentle and deep Temple Night at your home – and to Margot and Daniel for their holding. The location helped the evening have a particularly intimate quality. I enjoyed warm exchanges with many beautiful beings. It’s good to know there will be more gatherings.

Bioenergetics – Block 1 @ The Pathways Studio
Jul 18 @ 13:00 BST – Jul 21 @ 17:00 BST
Bioenergetics - Block 1 @ The Pathways Studio

We (Jon and Elara) are delighted to bring this one-of-a-kind Bioenergetics Yearlong Training for the first time to the UK. This is one of less than five yearlong Bioenergetics trainings worldwide.

If you are curious about bioenergetics but don’t want to commit to a yearlong training, you are welcome to try the first block which is standalone.

How we embody and express our energy makes our psyche and our patterns of reactions to life visible. We hold in our bodies the energy we dared not express when we were vulnerable children, both as a tension in the muscles and as a charge of energy in the organs and connective tissue. This fixed form of expression and defence is called our character. It is our social, adapted self, and blocks and represses our spontaneous flow of life energy, our wildness, including large amounts of our sexuality and creativity.

***What is Bioenergetics?***

Bioenergetics is not to be confused with the body of work that comes from biochemistry but comes from Wilhelm Reich and the therapy developed by his students.  This body of work not only includes bioenergetics itself but also Bioenergetic Analysis (Alexander Lowen), Biodynamic Psychology and Massage (Gerda Boyesen) Ron Kurtz (Hakomi) and Biosynthesis (David Boadella), Radix Therapy (Charles Kelly), Stanley Keleman (Formative Psychology) and the work of Leonard Orr, Arthur Janov and Stanislav Grof also draws upon it.

This training will cover both theoretical and practical grounding in the work of Reich and his followers.

Bioenergetics in general seeks to release old trauma, habits, and unconscious defensive attitudes and to liberate our life energy for aliveness, pleasure and for self-actualization. It seeks to change the base of our existence from an attitude based on fear and the unconsciousness to a mindfulness of our choices and an ability to express ourselves from our heart, our sex and our spirit. This yearlong training includes:

  • An analysis of our own character and patterns, which we respect as a necessity for survival
  • An understanding of the biographical causes of any stuckness and limitations
  • Strategies for managing trauma and fear
  • Supporting individuals to find freedom of expression and creativity as autonomous human beings

More specifically Bioenergetics is a self-exploration through becoming aware of tensions in your body. These tensions are created by the energies of past formative experience which are imprinted on your body.  These create your character, the person you became under the influence of your parents and your society.  By becoming aware of this we can release the tension and free up our energy to choose life in each moment. Thus, we are able to free up a huge amount of energy for our aliveness, our creativity, our pleasure and joy in life to create our conscious path and fulfil our dreams.

The ability to read the energy and character of others and know how to support their energy will also be taught.  As such, it is an invaluable training both for oneself and as a professional resource for those working energetically with others.

Themes for this yearlong training are:

  • Primal therapy, birth and intrauterine experiences and imprints that affect our lifetime patterns of energy.
  • The difference between character type and response
  • Understanding the patterns and needs of one’s character type
  • Moving from dependency to independence
  • Being aware of your feelings and expressing them appropriately and communicatively
  • Knowing what you want and what you don’t want and communicating that safely and respectfully
  • Assertiveness
  • Raising your energy levels, being more alive, aware, sensitive to life.
  • Grounding and standing on your own feet
  • Increasing the flexibility of one’s attitudes
  • Flowing with life instead struggling against it
  • Opening to aliveness and pleasure
  • Being able to be present and to stay in contact

We will support you to gain an understanding of:

  • The phenomenon of resistance and how to use and work through it.
  • How to work energetically and physically with projection, both positive and negative.
  • The different kinds of touch, their intent and applications: holding, containing, focussing, making conscious, confronting, soothing, mothering and fathering, supporting, grounding.
  • The emotional plague, repression and rebellion.
  • Armouring and core energetics, energy and character.
  • Imprints, memoire corporelle (cellular memory), regression, aspects of Janov and Grof.
  • The relationship between consciousness and energy, catharsis, demons, creative confrontation, witness consciousness.
  • The importance of breath, Reichian and other breathing techniques.
  • The orgasm reflex, the birth reflex.
  • Character analysis – the character types and their use in therapy.
  • Therapy and spirituality.
  • Techniques to raise energy, bioenergetic stress positions, Osho meditations.
  • Grounding and its importance, both through the feet and through the eyes.
  • The segments and their order of opening.
  • The contribution to the field of Reich‘s students including: Alexander Lowen, Ron Kurtz and Hakomi, David Boadella and Biosynthesis, Gerda Boysen and family and Biodynamics.
  • Self-regulation, the inner wisdom and balance of the body

***Who is this Training For?***

Reiki Level 1 Initiation 09:30-16:00 @ The Pathways Studio near MediaCityUK
Aug 16 @ 09:30 BST – 16:00 BST

Reiki 1 training gives you the ability to give Reiki to yourself and to family and friends. It allows you to access the universal healing reiki energy and can for many people, be one of the most transformative and enlightening decisions they have ever made as well as a beautiful opening up experience.

Reiki, is the name given to a system of natural energy healing which evolved in by Japan by Dr. Usui who was inspired to develop this healing system from ancient teachings after many years of study, research and meditation.

Reiki level 1 is suitable for :

– those who want to learn how to treat themselves and family/friends,

– those that are looking for a way to move forward with their own self development and spiritual advancement, and

– anyone interested in exploring their spirituality.

The ability to use Reiki is normally given via an attunement or initiation. When attending a Reiki 1 course the participant gets attuned/initiated by a Reiki master through a simple process which opens them to receive and utilise more of the Universal Life Energy. The attunements have in themselves a very powerful balancing and healing effect.

Since energy spins at different levels, Reiki is normally split into 3 levels: Reiki 1, Reiki 2 and Master level. Once attuned Reiki is easy to use and your ability to use Reiki will never leave you. The attunements will be done by Elara who is a Reiki Master/Teacher in both Eastern and Western traditions.

This course is a Western Reiki 1 Initiation and consists of one and a half days. The additional half day will be scheduled after the 21 day healing period and will be mutually agreed by all who attend.

During the course, you will:

– learn the history of Reiki

– be introduced to the universal life force energy and learn to feel and connect to this energy

– receive four reiki attunements, usually done individually by a Reiki Master/Teacher who will attune you to this universal life force energy

– learn about protecting yourself from negative energy.

– have a practical demonstration of giving a Reiki treatment and an opportunity for you to practice

– learn about the about the uses of Reiki on friends, family, animals, plants, gifts, clearing spaces and situations.

– Learn about the different effects of a Reiki treatment and what to be conscious of

– You will be given support during your 21 days of self-healing to allow you time to adjust to this shift in your vibration.

– You will be given a written manual and a certificate.

The investment is as follows (please see our refund policy): –

Full Price: £155 + booking fee

Those repeating Reiki 1 with me: £95 + booking fee

To avoid booking fee’s, you can pay by bank transfer.

Please note that if you come on the course and then do another repeat at the repeat price, then you can come along for free to future Reiki Level 1 courses in the Western tradition that I run. This is subject to availability, I will keep 2 places available on each course that I run and I will be able to confirm availability if you message me. My intention in introducing this free lifelong repeat option is to allow us to keep coming back and connecting with the material and Reiki at a deeper level and I am very excited about the possibilities that could come from this.

For those who attend Reiki 1 Initiation, I am also offering an optional package of 3 one hour one to one sessions with me for £95. These sessions are to support you in your ongoing Reiki journey and can involve further one to one instruction on techniques or receiving Reiki from me for the hour or a mixture of both, depending on what you require at that time. They can be in person or online.

Shamanic Training @ The Pathways Studio
Sep 26 @ 13:00 BST – Sep 29 @ 17:00 BST
Shamanic Training @ The Pathways Studio

***Shamanic training***

Shamanism studies our energetic connection to everything around us, the elements, the minerals, plants and animals, and especially the spirit connections, including to our ancestors, our karma and our sacred dream. We develop our ability to perceive energy and spirit through our energy body, the awareness of which brings us into an expanded state of consciousness. Elara teaches in the beauty way in the tradition of the Twisted Hairs medicine teachings passed on through Arwyn Dreamwalker.

Shamanic healing in this path needs 11 people plus the person being healed and is very powerful.  Since Elara learnt how to participate in shamanic healings (both as someone giving healing as well as someone receiving healing), she has been struck by its power and felt inspired to create a community in the UK where we can come together after the training to both give and receive healings.  This is a major inspiration for putting this training on and the medicine wheel and shamanic healing will form a significant part of the training.  It is intended that regular healing sessions will then be held at Pathways Studio for the participants.

The Medicine Way is a closed group of people that walk together for potentially up to one year if you continue with further blocks.  We will explore with Elara both intellectually and experientially the medicine wheel. We will learn new ways of understanding and relating to reality in all its manifestations with respect and equality. The training consists of four 4-day-long meetings and is a strong personal transformation process.

The teaching of the medicine wheel can help us in many areas of life:

  • to grow from a childish way of looking at the world into an adult way and see the reality through the mind and heart  simultaneously
  • to find balance between our inner active and receptive polarity
  • to dance our life energy awake to move towards our sacred dream
  • to free ourselves on the line of karma – ancestors, thus liberating ourselves from unconscious patterns from the past
  • to experience a feeling of oneness and harmony with everything around us, instead of a feeling of helplessness or need for control

***Logistics***

This training can be undertaken as a year long Shamanic training, comprising 4 blocks or Block 1 can be done as a standalone introduction to Shamanism.

The training starts at 13:00 on the Wednesday and finishes at 17:00 on the Saturday for the first block and for the remaining blocks, it starts at 13:00 on the Thursday and finishes at 17:00 on the Sunday.

The training occurs mainly at The Pathways Studio, Manchester and is non-residential.  Here we will explore shamanic healing and other indoor activities.  The third block will be held residentially in North Wales near Conwy to support outdoor activities such as a vision quest and omen walks.

The cost included in the ticket is just for the teaching fee.  You will need to organise your own transport to get there and sort out your own accommodation and food.   For the North Wales block, you should allow £80 per night to include food (three meals, snacks and refreshments and accommodation).

The class size will be a maximum of 20 to allow valuable coaching time and exploration of their own character responses.  A minimum of 10 people are required to give attendees a typical cross-section of different energies and character responses to explore in person.

You can avoid paying the booking fee by choosing to pay by bank transfer and transferring the payment.
