Spring’s Awakenings: Embracing and Opening to Season’s Fortune

Fri, 27 March 2020 18:30 – 22:00

A special interactive workshop, centred on health, longevity, self-love and community healing.

About this Event

With each new season comes an intuitive call for self-reflection and transformation. Increasingly we recognise that changing seasons awaken our self-awareness and desire for healing, to see ourselves anew and alight into the temporal landscape with fresh insight. But how can we do this practically to ensure our health and longevity is more than a fleeting aspiration?

Building on the Afrikan Women and the Feminine Divine Workshop we delivered last year, this closing session of a month long Afrikan Women’s programme is both celebration and practice of attuning to the seasonal changes from winter to spring. Since Spring has been accorded the month of women, when we celebrate fertility, growth and rebirth we will honour this feminine divine quality of the season.

The session will feature brief meditation, affirmations with techniques to inspire self-love and abundance, as we acknowledge that Spring is a time of abundance – everything proliferating in the new light after the long dark days in hibernation. As before this session will feature sensory activities to elevate the imagination, creativity, intuition, nurturing, compassion, love, spirituality. Participants will be invited to embrace and open to the powerful transformative energies of Spring and reconnect with ancient wisdoms that generated health and longevity.

You are welcome to this love fuelled interactive and to which you are invited to bring your spirited and best aspirations for the new season.
