Well Christmas has come early this year and it does seems  get earlier and earlier each year.  Stockwell Spiritualist Church had its Christmas Tree up and on that note I would like to thank Coleen Rechere  and Paula Clement for inviting us to do readings last Monday evening.  We hope everyone enjoyed their readings,  On the note of Christmas let talk about the old ways and remember Yule was celebrated in the past and still is by many people including ourselves.  The white goddess will descend and the earth will have her sleep time awaiting the rebirth in Spring.  We will be focuses on this on the 17th December with a mini presentation by a good friend and lovely lady called Liz Gale  who will delve into some of the traditions of the old ways together with Nigel Irving and explain the history of some carols which were originally from those times plus many other goodies in store including some mince pies and fruit mull. This will take place at Epping and more details will be posted nearer the event. Nevertheless it is going to be a brilliant evening as Liz is very knowledgeable just £6 which will include a free Christmas Raffle and as its special you will be allowed to donate another £1 for extra tickets.  We have cosy feet socks, a cuddly bear, a rabbit,  a reading with yours truly and there many other goodies and  a naughty Santa Gnome for all you naughty gnome fans.  Our awareness group at Woodford Spiritualist Church will be going on until the 5th December (last evening) when we will be closing for a season break and it will commence again in the New Year on 9th January ( at 7.15pm.  This coming weekend  the 30th December we are at the Island of Light the small centre run by Barbara Barnes.  A wee bit of an advanced notice on 21st December I am delighted to inform you that Daniel will be singing at the Carol Service at Woodford Spiritualist Church.  We have a lot of ideas and workshops planned at Epping for next year.  The first three are as follows Colour in Intuition, Colour in Healing and finally Sound Healing with Colour plus we have invited Alan Albiston, Michael Redwin, , Liz Gale, Sharon Law, Susan Griffith,  Martin Jones and his mum Maggie amongst others to do some workshops both in the evening and on Saturdays.  We are also looking for two things one is a larger hall in that area and secondly a large garage for storage.  Any help gratefully received.  Don't forget we are still selling knitted items to swell our funds for advertising and the hire of venues etc.  We now also have mobile phone cases of owls and a mini heart key ring to go with them as well as some new heart key rings and owls.  So please consider buying some of these for presents.  Finally do not forget that we have a workshop at the Ringway Community Centre, 268 Baring Road, Grove Park, S/E/12 tomorrow at 7.30 pm "Ask the Angels" which will include refreshments for just £6

Here are some more beautiful images as the prelude to our "Make Your Own Oracle Cards"  these courses will be starting in 2015 and these cards can be used to do readings or simply for meditation.  Each student produced completely different images (take a look at our previous post) and yet all were inspiring and we were.  It was so inspiring to see such awesome images with such amazing and dedicated students. They were a delight  to be with on every level.  As were the group last night in Epping.  Another successful evening and we are now becoming even surer that this is the right locality for a new sanctuary where not only ourselves, but other dedicated tutors will be able to teach and impart their knowledge to willing students.  Here this seems to be the norm.  I would like to thank all who attended and we are looking forward to an evening with Liz Gale and Nigel Irving on the 17th December - there will be an explanation of Yuletide ceremonies including the origins of traditional carols plus we are hoping a fruit mull laced with cinnamon etcetera as well as hot mince pies for those who eat them (and a few surprises including a free raffle). Next Monday the 24th November both Daniel and I are doing readings at Stockwell Spiritualist Church, St Michael's Road, London, SW9 0SL (for just £6 you can have a 15 minute reading with either Daniel or I).   He will be doing sand reading so why not pop along between 7 pm to 9 pm and get one as well as having time to socialise with like minded people.  I will also be bringing some of my naughty gnomes as well have the owls plus maybe a few owl mobile covers and heart key rings all of which make unique presents.

What an inspiration

Our last workshop on "Intuitive Ways With a Sketchbook" was an inspiration - all our students excelled and some of the work produced was magic.  This day was the prelude to our new workshop for 2015 "Make you own oracle cards".  We intend to hold this course in two different venues with two different subject matters.  One will be linked to Mother Earth and Nature and another will be linked to the Angelic Realms.  In both case there will be an extra charge for materials. Over the next few week I am hoping to show some of the students work and I am sure you will all be inspired by what you see. Unfortunately Barbara Barnes's Special wasn't as well supported as she had hope and we were very disappointed for her.  She has now decided to run events once or twice a year.  I have suggested maybe we could do some workshops in 2015 instead. e all had an uplifting time at the "Light Within Healing and Psychic Centre". Nice to see old friends. Amazing messages thanks spirit for supporting us and good luck Peter Brewster with your venture Thank you for asking us to serve your centre and we look forward to a returning next year.  Tomorrow is our second meeting at Epping and we are really looking forward to it.  There will be an interactive angelic workshop and I know those of you who join us will feel totally positive after the evening.  There will be a short break for tea and biscuits (herbals and coffees for those who need them) plus a chance to view goods hand made by Stacy, Brian, Lisa and myself plus maybe  maybe some CDs recorded by Alan and some second hand books brought by Nigel.  The address is the Friends Meeting House, Hemnall Street, Epping CM16 4LL (Harlow end of Epping).  Of course on Friday we have our awareness group which starts at 7.15 pm. Then on the 30th December we are back at the Island of Light with Barbara Barnes

What next

We are still selling our knitted items to raise money for a sanctuary where spiritual education will take a high profile along with therapies and healing both for animals and humans.  Venue and advertising can be expensive and until we can find a building to call our own this will be an on going problem.  Tomorrow we will be holding our course "Intuitive Ways with a Sketchbook" and we will be devoted to a day of encaustic wax with meditations.  This day will be totally different to anything else we have done.  Why not come and join us at Woodford Spiritualist Church from 1 pm to 5.30 pm (more details on Yesterdays workshop produced some very simple pieces used for readings based angelic meditations and you can see how simple they were from the picture posted here.   Roz is kindly holding the fort on Friday at the awareness group, as we will be at a Holistic and Psychic Fayre doing readings and hopefully selling a few knitted items.  There will be other sellers there so you might grab a few Yule or Christmas presents as well.  Details can be found in the previous post to this one.  There is also an excellent workshop at St. Albans Spiritualist Church on the 15th November with Alan Albiston. Its starts at 12 noon and finishes at 4 pm  and the admission is £15 (for more details ring 07716 475258).

November and Winter has arrived

There is a definite nip in the air and Winter it seems has arrived.  Hopefully there will  not be snow until much later and I will confess from my point of view I can do without it. It's going to be a very interesting month. The picture on the right was put in place for the time when the veil is  thin that is to say Halloween and was set in place by Sharon Powell showing one of our knitted owls and also her beloved Tinkerbell who I must say looks very magnificent and quite suitable for a witchy evening. Incidentally Sharon is an excellent reflexologist who we highly recommend and can be contacted on 07941 145598.    Our first event will be on the 9th of November at Woodford Spiritualist Church and its our regular monthly workshop, which starts at 12 noon and finishes at 4pm "Co-Create with Spirit".   The following week we will have another regular event  "Intuitive Ways With a Sketchbook" starting a 1 pm and finishing at 5.30 pm.   See Woodford website for all details Our regular awareness group at Woodford on a Friday evening is also going extremely well and we have a regular group of like minded souls who all blend with each other. This starts at 7.15 although we are usually there long before that.  For readings and holistic treats be ready for the 14th November in the evening at  Merton Manor Club, 76 Kingston Road, Wimbledon, SW19 1LA where there will also be  available  a range of Christmas goodies (so come and do some Christmas Shopping as well) both  Brian Hoolichan and Eco Alkemy will have a table (maybe we may bring a few owls and gnomes). Amongst the readers are Liz Gale, Coleen Rechere and Nigel Irving.  On the 16th November we will be at the Island of Light Church doing readings at Barbara Barnes small sanctuary one of her Specials as she calls them. The evening will start at 6.30 pm and finish at around 8.30 pm.  Next Sunday the service there will be taken by the lovely Stacy Shepherd and unfortunately although we can't be there as we already have a commitment on the 9th November after our workshop I would suggest that those of you who can be there attend as she is an excellent medium..   On Monday the 17th November we are at  "The Light Within Healing and Psychic Centre" for their Monday afternoon service, which starts at 1.30 pm.  Their address is Glyndon Community Centre, 75 Raglan Road, London SE18 7LB nearest station Woolwich Arsenal then a short walk of a 291 bus.  I would also like to recommend a workshop at St.Albans Spiritualist Church with Alan Albiston on the 15th November  - Alan is an excellent tutor and this workshop is special - the church which incidentally is very friendly and welcoming is located close to the station.  For more details ring 01727  840170. Our "Give a Gnome a Home" campaign is still on to fund our sanctuary and we also have lots of owls for sale.  We also have an angel workshop pending, but more details of that in our next post.   Finally if anyone know of a garage that we could rent in East London or near Epping to store stuff in (must be dry) please let us know ring 07927 288904.  Meanwhile have a great week,
