The world demands we use our mind a LOT...
to plan, organise, strategise and achieve.
And it does an incredible job of keeping us safe.
But when we over-rely on the mind we can:
And it can be exacerbated by the times we are living in.
And it’s bloody exhausting.

The (Gentle Sunday) Be:Held session, was just that and all it implies. Gentle feels into the body, letting go of the mind and its chatter. Inviting a softness into the heart and calming the nervous system with guided walks through the woods of of our minds to the heart centre. Using chant and somatic movement to move through the tunnels of stuck emotions and pathways of disillusioned core beliefs. Being held in a sacred space with like minded souls is just heaven on Earth. To be heard, seen and given safe space to validate yourself. Its truly beautiful heart work. Safe, and loving embodiment practices and detachment from the ever exhausting thoughts and mind processes at its finest. Cat you are an angel on Earth, thank you for your work.
Since the session my mind has not been quite as racy and chaotic as usual, and I've been more aware of (and have paid more attention to) how parts of my body are experiencing, say, the act of walking, or how it feels to be sitting on a train. And not by making an effort to pay that attention, but it's just the way it's been.Being released from the tyranny of an overactive mind for at least a little while is such a relief and has felt very nurturing (Amanae Session 2021)
Where has amanae been all my life?! It’s utter magic. Thanking my lucky stars it found me, and thanking YOU for opening me up to it. You are magic. It’s like having pulled a bit at a little thread and then realising your whole outfit is unravelling. (In a good way.) I’m totally baffled by the depths of what I experienced in that three hours workshop and by the reverberations I’m still feeling. I don’t quite have the words (still!) but feel like I somehow saw myself for the very first time. I feel like something seismic shifted, or was unlocked, or was re-birthed. Again, I can’t explain it but I feel like I’ve been super sensitive to loads of little realisations in the past few days - kind of like joining dots I couldn’t see before about who I am and why I’m here. Any time I’ve felt myself nudging back into old pattern or chain of thought in the past couple of days, I feel like I can recall the sense of being in that chapel - what I felt, and what I felt in everyone else. The support. And what I’m now referring to as my “unravelling”...!
A fascinating, caring, transformative experience which can open your heart and introduce you to a new way of experiencing life (Head Strong to Heart Smart 2020)
Come and be held in collective support just as you are. A place away from all the mind-noise, and general daily WTF-ery. Somewhere to come and hang out and quench these tired souls of ours with a bit of love, care and compassion? A place to rest and receive.
