Ho'oponopono

Ho’oponopono is an ancient healing process that has been practiced for centuries in Hawaii and now becoming more popular in the West. It is used to transform negative emotions into love and forgiveness in order to become more mindful. Our outer world is a reflection of our inner world. Through saying sorry and asking forgiveness for our part in any event in our lives (including our relationships), we take 100% responsibility. We put down the swords of un-forgiveness, blame and resentment, and the emotion is changed as a result, bringing about change in our lives. Read more...

Movement-Based Approaches

When words fail, dance and movement are an accurate way to sense, understand and bring into expression feelings, memories, words and images that have been locked up deep inside just waiting to be given space to. There is no right or wrong way to move, no movement experience necessary, only a willingness to listen to ourselves and follow the next movement as it wants to happen. It offers you the freedom to discover how you relate to yourself, others and the environment, encouraging you to find variations in your movements, challenging any fixed sense of self and giving you the space to create new choices through your body. A time to welcome in reflection, unwinding, releasing tension, enhancing your confidence and building strength and flexibility in your body, heart and mind.
