Magical Dolls


We are really looking forward to the workshop at Epping on Saturday 18th May and we hope it will be well attended.  Don't forget it starts at 1.30 but doors open at 1 pm for meet and greet.  The day is just £20 which includes any materials used plus light refreshments and a free raffle ticket.  Workshop entitled "Your Creative Soul" in which we will also be combining a wee bit of sound healing at the start of the day to calm everyone from the outside distractions. We are now in the process of planning other events as the venue has got some repairs which need doing.  It now looks as if these will go ahead in August so we can make plans one of which we have already arranged and it is " Making a Magical Doll" (poppet and how to use it) with Lucya Starza on October 5th, which will start at 1.30 pm.  The cost will be £20 which will include all materials, there is a suggested donation for materials of £2.  I am also hoping Lucya will have a copy of her book for sale. We will need to know numbers for this as obviously materials have to be brought.   We are also planning a workshop with Anita Panayiotis on animal healing.  Hopefully by my next post we will have news of that.  Now back to ourselves and on Thursday 23rd May we will be at Woodford during the afternoon with "Your Creative Self"  which will start at 2.30 and 6 approx. and then at 7 pm is our normal circle.  We are planning at some stage to take it back to Tuesday's as we are gearing it around medical appointments.  I would also like to mention several specials which will be taking place at Woodford Church in aid of the church.  The first of these will be on the 6th July at 7 pm with Raymond Prendergast and will include a free raffle and refreshments.  Time for making friends and seeing an excellent medium. More details nearer the time.  Advanced notice on September 14th there will be an amazing trio of three being Alan Albiston, Alfred Hunt and Ruth Lipkin.  More details nearer the time, but it will include refreshments and time to make new friends.
The last of our felting course at the Woodlands Farm will take place this weekend a selection of what was produced is also above.

Next event at Epping will be on the 18th May and its with our good selves Daniel Naughnane and Patricia McNally "Your Creative Soul". Usual venue in Epping, which is The Friends Meeting House, Hemnall Street, Epping, Essex CM16 4LL.  We are so fortunate in being able to hire this venue as the energies inside are wonderful.  It starts at 1.30 pm, but doors open for meet and greet at 1 pm. As usual entrance includes light refreshments and a raffle ticket.  Following this on the 26th May at Woodford National Spiritualist Church at noon there is a workshop with Terry Finnrgan  called "Finding Yourself Through Colour" and following "Intuition and Colour" with myself (www.woodfordchurch.com).  Full details on the website. The Healing Week at Woodford went quite well and I understand that the Healing Power of Laughter with Sharon Law was well attended.  As was was our own and also Elizabeth Gale (see small photograph with Daniel. Towards the end of the week on Friday numbers dwindled and sadly Sharon only got two for the meditation and so did Brenda Hodgson for her mini workshop.  The next day it gain more in numbers with Anita Panayiotis and Valerie Coates's workshops.  Incidentally Anita will be doings an animal healing workshop at Epping later in the year and Lucya Starza is doing a poppets one in October and we will be giving more details in a later post. Last Sunday morning we sent at the Woodlands farm on our felting course, which is where the beautiful clematis was and the sheep too.  Details of this and our makes will be in our next post in a few days time when we might have more news of the two workshops mentioned.

We had a very fruitful day at the Woodland Trust and almost finished a picture. It is certainly worth looking at some of the events there and so do take a look. (https://www.thewoodlandsfarmtrust.org)  Viv and Sylvia certainly packed a lot into the morning and we are looking forward to making a bowl next Sunday. We also had an interesting talk about the farm itself and how much it cost to run it (a bit scary I might add)  I would also like to recommend courses with the following organisations, which I believe they are both members of the following organisations http://www.southeastlondontextiles.wordpress.com and  http://www.seyalondon.wordpress.com.  You can see from the other picture how intent Daniel was with his wet felting.  I also have added some picture of the creatures hanging from the education room in the Woodlands as they run numerous classes for children.
Our next workshop is part of healing week at Woodford Church on Thursday 9th May at noon with "Healing with the Archangels" lead by myself and then when it finishes there will be a half hour break and at 2.30 until 5.30 Daniel will lead a  "Sound Healing Workshop". Following this will be a meditation with a discussion about various forms of healing such as reiki, angel reiki, kiniesology and other forms of therapies, which will start at 7 pm and finish around 7.30 pm.  all of these events are by donation as its the healing week.
Following this the workshop after that will be at Epping and its called "Your Creative Soul" and Daniel and I will be leading it.  That is on the on the 18th May, which starts at 1.30 pm (and doors open at 1 pm for meet and greet). 
Liz Gale is also doing a workshop on Friday afternoon and so is Lucie Steflova for the healing week and I will be giving more details of these in my next post.   I will where I can be adding reviews of these workshops and even if I can't attend it will be nice to get some sort of feedback.

Beltane Blessings


Normally I don't blog two days running, but I wish to pass blessings to you all for Beltane and also to suggest places you can look for Beltane Celebrations.  Probably best place we know is Lucya Starza's blog www.badwitch.co.uk as there is always a full list of pagan events and incidentally its a blog well worth reading. Very informative and beautifully written.
We thought we would share a few more photographs of the Woodlands Trust Farm at Welling with you as we will be spending some time there on the wet felting course, which runs for another three weeks. We are looking forward to next Sunday.

Do come along to some of these events and see if the power of healing can help you or just learn about various aspects of healing. Please if you attend one of these events could you write a review.  It would be nice to get feedback about ant of the workshops we organise and I am sure the tutors concerned would be delighted.  In our case any constructive criticism is also welcome. 
Don't forget also those interested in trance there is a workshop on the 11th May with Maggie Jones at West Wickham Church and I believe it starts at 10.30 am until 4.30 pm entrance £20.  Places are limited so contact church as soon as possible.
Our next workshop at Epping is on the 18th May at the Friends Meeting House at 1.30 (doors will open at 1 pm).  Cost £20 which includes the workshop as well as teas, coffees and a free raffle.  I always feel we are fortunate to have such a beautiful place to work. The address is Hemnall Street, Epping, CM16 4LL.
