Jennie of Nurturing Touch and Lyn of Sacred Awakenings invite you to join us at our New Moon Circle. Cosy nests will await with magical gifts upon your pillow, along with a cup of the delicious Dark Moon Tea from Tarn & Moon.
New Moon is a potent time for setting intentions and what better time to do so than at the beginning of December. A time when life can become hectic, we can find ourselves pulled in many directions and listening to the "shoulds" and "musts" instead of our inner wisdom. We invite you take this time to set your intentions for the coming month and how you would like it to look. There will be time for journalling and sharing, ending the evening with a Nidra followed by a handmade chocolate created with love by Jennie to ground you before heading home
Places are limited to 10 due to space. *cancelled*
*Please note, this event is for women only*
There is parking available at the rear of the building.
Please arrive 10 mins before the event begins to allow time for you to get settled and comfortable. The session will start at 7pm prompt. We will provide everything you need for the session, if lying in a nest isn't your thing and you would rather be seated on the floor or a chair we can arrange this for you.

Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra
When: Friday 10th Dec 6.00pm to 8.00pm
Where: The Wellness Mill, Castle Mills, Kendal, LA9 7DE
Price: £20 per person - Only 9 places to ensure you have plenty of room
Another new venue!! I am delighted to announce that I will be joining the wonderful Amy at her new space in Kendal. I will be there on the 12 November and 10 December. Restorative Yoga is a relaxation practice promoting a state of deep yet conscious rest. Props are used to support the physical body, ensuring there is sufficient support at the neck and chest to allow this area to gently and slowly open. The heart rate and blood pressure slow along with our breath. Muscles relax and the body moves out of stress and anxiety mode, leading to improved sleep and a reduction in pain. It is not only about the physical body but the energetic body too. The energetic shape and pattern of the body come into alignment alongside the physical body. Once we have allowed our body to open and be still we will be even more ready to sink into our Yoga Nidra, a time of even deeper rest. A time to welcome ourselves home in all that we are. A time of rest, healing, a time to listen to your soul’s voice and the truth of who you are, bring you home to you. A time of open invitation to listen or just allow the words and sounds to wash over you. Being in any position that is comfortable for you at the time. A time for you to be just as you wish to be.

Yoga Nidra and Sound
When: Wednesday 29 December 7:30pm to 9pm
Christmas time can be a joyful time, it can be a time of sadness and a time of stress and high expectations. Jennie of Nurturing Touch and I thought you might like to join us at that strange time between Christmas and New Year. Whether this is a time of year you love or whether it's a time you dread why not soothe yourself with a Yoga Nidra and Sound Bath? We are offering this online so you don't have to travel out in the dark and cold; you can be snuggled up in your bed away from the constant chatter of the people and the TV. Cosy up with your four legged furry friend or escape them too. However you decide to show up and wherever in your home. We invite you to listen to Lyn as she guides you through a journey of deep rest with Yoga Nidra, (it has been called her superpower!) as the Yoga Nidra draws to an end, Jennie will gently begin her Sound Bath weaving the gentle sounds of the Singing Bowls into the closing of the Nidra. The sound of all of her instruments will slowly wash over you soothing your soul, taking you into an even deeper place of rest and restoration.
A perfect Yuletide Gift to yourself or loved ones.
The investment for this time of peace, calm and rest is £20 pp and we look forward to seeing you.

Women's Seasons and Cycles
When: Dates to be Confirmed
Lyn of Sacred Awakenings and Jennie of Nurturing Touch invite you to join them on a journey of discovery and exploration of your Seasons and Cycles. We will journey from the Spring of your Maidenhood through Mother, Maga and complete our journey by entering our Winter and Crowning our Crone. During our time together we will sit in circle and share our stories embracing and nurturing our Devine Feminine Energy and Power. We will learn to understand the power of each phase of our life, we will learn how we cycle within cycles, and how to move through each season of our cycle of our life. We will take time to connect, heal and spiritually honour each and every part of us. Along the way we will delve into healing and celebrating our menarche, learn about transitional ceremonies. We will take a peak into our hormonal shifts and balances that occur. We will learn a beautiful self-care massage, how to wrap and nurture our whole pelvis. We will journey with the drum and settle into the deep rest of Yoga Nidra. We will learn to dance our own dance with the moon learning the importance of our natal moon. As we complete the journey together we will have shared stories, laughed and cried together. We will feel the wisdom within us, knowing that we have the knowledge to step forward into each season of our life and the knowledge to heal all that has gone before us, healing not only ourselves but our ancestors and our daughters, nieces, friends. We will feel the strength of this shared wisdom and all the joy that it brings.
When you sign up for this four week course you will receive a magical parcel of 4 boxes one for each season of your womanhood.
This course is suitable for women of all ages and stages of their life and we welcome the presence of small ones. Knowing that it is never too late to step into this powerful way of connection, healing and honouring. This knowledge is precious and it’s never too late to learn and begin to share.

The Sacred Wheel (A Path of Exploration)
Course Length: 1 year
Where: Mealbank Hall, Ingleton
It was with great sadness that Katharine Lucy Haworth of Orangeblossom Old Ways and Lyn of Sacred Awakenings had to postpone this beautiful transformative course last year. We hoped that we would be celebrating the beginning of The Sacred Wheel at Spring Equinox this year. We are hopeful that come September and the Autumn Equinox this will be possible.
An integral part of The Sacred Wheel is connecting with our own cycles and that of Mother Nature so in the meantime we invite you to join us on the events mentioned underneath Dates For Your Diary. We are hopeful that many of these will be able to happen in person, sat in a sacred circle connecting with our inner knowing, listening to our inner wisdom and connecting with all that has gone before us, remembering the old ways. These wonderful gatherings will give you a beautiful taster of what to expect when you join us on The Sacred Wheel (A Path of Exploration)
This Path of Exploration will be a truly transformational experience for you. You will learn how to feel grounded in your body and breathe deeply into and from your wombspace (whether physical or energetic). You will be held and supported by nature, creation and Spirit in turn feeling more connection and trust. You will feel more powerful, not only heard but listened to. You will experience how powerful intentions, prayers, affirmations and incantations are. You will have the tools to be in your power, to connect. You will learn that you have the power to turn from fear to love, to see things differently. You will step into the highest version of yourself and find your own True Voice.
Each morning will begin with gentle Well Woman Yoga to connect with our bodies and to feel into our creativity and clear energetic blockages. This yoga is suitable for all levels from absolute beginners to veteran yoginis. Yoga mats and blankets will be provided.
We will have drum journeys each day inviting you to connect with the direction and element we are working with. Starting at the Spring Equinox together we will journey round the Medicine Wheel connecting with each element and direction. You will meet power animals/allies/guides to work and heal with. We will connect with the land and elements around us during meditative walks
We will make our own unique Medicine Wheel and set of Medicine Cards. These will be as simple, detailed, elaborate, flamboyant, big or as small as you wish. No artistic skills are required. The number of Medicine Cards you make is entirely up to you, this will all unfold as you explore this Path. The Medicine Wheel and Cards are sacred tools for you to use for life; for manifesting your dreams and goals, for divination work, to ask a simple question, aid healing, meditating, to increase your connection with yourself, the cycles, seasons, nature and Spirit. Your Wheel and Cards will be utterly unique to you having come from your guidance and intuition.
The journeys will provide inspiration for your Medicine Wheel and connecting Medicine Cards. The creative work will begin each weekend and unfold as the quarter goes on.
Some of our work will be outdoors so please bring clothing suitable for the time of year. Remember we are in Yorkshire so probably best to cover all eventualities of rain, cold, wind, sun – layers, warm, waterproof. Sensible footwear as we wander through the beautiful countryside around us.
We will provide basic art materials; paints, brushes, pastels, glitter, glue, paper and card as well as some wool and fabric. Remember that nature can be your art materials; leaves, flowers, stones, twigs, the list is endless. Please give thought to the materials that will make your heart sing and soul smile as you create your Sacred Medicine Wheel and Cards.
We invite you to spend the whole weekend in this deep immersive experience for no extra cost just bring a mat and sleeping bag and you can sleep in the hut overnight, or there are plenty of places to stay or camp in and around the village. The hut has a fully equipped kitchen and shower in the disabled toilet. Plenty of parking outside. We will provide a hearty bowl of soup, stew or similar each day and invite you to bring some bread, salad or similar as an accompaniment. Delicious teas from Tarn & Moon will be available throughout the weekends along with cake.
This will be a time of making connections with ourselves, others, nature, the elements and spirits of place. We will have the opportunity to share deeply of our journeys and experiences and therefore places are limited.
You will also receive an invite to a Secret Facebook Group – The Sacred Wheel, a place where we can share our work and encourage each other along the way in between our gatherings.

Be Your Own Author, Follow Your Own Star *Fully Booked*
I am pleased to say that following the huge success I am offering this course once more.
A Four Week Course Commencing Wednesday 26 May 7.30pm to 9.30pm
Where: Online **Fully Booked**
Are you your own Author? Or are you living someone else's stories? Do you feel you wish to re-write your narratives? Begin to live your own story? We will create a treasure map of our life. We will explore and unearth the influences and influencers of our story. My intention wasn't our modern day Instagram Influencers but these might well feature! Perhaps something an old school teacher said long ago has influenced decisions and choices you have made. Perhaps you are trying to live your parents unfulfilled dreams. Maybe someone famous influences your thoughts. Our lives are influenced by so many external factors; social, economic, environmental, family, friends. We will discover who and what influences us and how we feel about them and which ones we wish to change. We will discover the roles we play consciously and unconsciously; which ones we choose, which ones have exited left of stage and which ones are very much taking centre stage.
As we navigate our stories and discover which are ours and those that belong to others we will venture into stormy seas and the choppy waters of change. We will locate our lifeboats, not those that we cling onto with our fingernails but the ones that soothe us and sail us out of crashing waves onto gently lapping shores.
We will journey with the drum and write our own story. All you need are some sheets of large paper, A3 size, a journal and art materials, nothing fancy just pens and pencils are sufficient but you can choose to use paints, pastels, magazine clippings whatever your heart desires.
This idea has been bubbling away in my cauldron for a while now following the completion of my Story Practitioner Coaching with Carol Day last year and I look forward to sharing this powerful healing journey with you. Knowing that we will all be connected across the ethers, the web of life entwines us all and as we become the author of or own story the threads of our web will shift and change, tugging on the threads of others.
This course also includes a one hour one to one shamanic healing session with me.
We will begin our navigation through the seas of change on Wednesday 26 May, on the Full Moon a perfect time to release ways that no longer serve, in this case releasing the stories that have been written for us that we wish to let go of making room to re-write our own. We will take a pause on Wednesday 9 June at New Moon to revisit our intentions to follow our own star. We will gather for our last session on Wednesday 16 June as the sun is begins to reach her highest point for the Summer Solstice a perfect time for reflection on all that has been. The investment in becoming your Own Author is £150. Payment can be made in instalments, just contact me if this is your preferred option of paying. To secure your place please PayPal: https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/sacredawakenings44 or contact me for bank details. *Fully Booked*
I envision that once again this will be a deep and powerful journey for many which is why I'm offering the one to one session as part of the course which can either be during the four weeks or at the end or beginning. I have also, therefore limited places to keep our Circle a place of safety giving plenty of room for sharing and holding each other.
