Hi folks. Here is our newsletter outlining workshops for the rest of 2012. Yes, it‟s THAT year – 2012! So many prophecies, so many prognostications. One thing is for sure – we shall experience what the year brings and learn many things. What ever happens, it seems this is a potent time to cultivate awareness, inner wellbeing and being in the present moment. One change for us is the local authority has decided we require planning permission to do what we‟ve been doing here at Winton for nine years. We have therefore moved courses to other venues until that is sorted out. What would help us greatly is letters in support of the value of what we do and the benefit it brings. Send to us here and we will compile them to give to the people who make decisions. A new course for 2012 is STIRRINGS OF SPRING with Lorraine and Dawn which is happening on weekend of March 16th-18th. A Weekend of Gentle Awakening From Winter's Sleep! This is at a new venue for us – a retreat centre set in ten acres of land on the Severn Sisters country park and next to Friston Forest, with beautiful walks and views out to the sea and forest. You are invited to take time out and feed your soul with the gift of nature and gentle awakening to the rhythm of your life force, ready for Spring. We have planned a VISIONQUEST in Wales in July. It is some years since we have done this and many people have expressed interest in this challenging and highly worthwhile endeavour. It is a great time for it as this is slated as THE year of change. Our EARTH CHILD course has been most successful and we are repeating it in late July. An opportunity to engage in deep healing of the past and liberate the Child. In September we are looking at PORTUGAL – a week in the Algarve in the sun! We have tentatively called it „Seeking the Magical Adult.‟ Leo, Lorraine and Dawn are offering individual sessions for healing and welbeing.

SHAMANIC HEALING - THE INNER CHILD
February 18th Saturday 11.30am – 6pm Reading With Leo Rutherford Over recent centuries children have been undermined, as if that was a normal way of upbringing, and fed with a sense of fear and scarcity on all levels. This crazy treatment has eaten away at our sense of self worth and self esteem. Our culture teaches us to feel not good enough. Religion tells us we are thrown out of God‟s Garden, that we are all guilty and need to be saved. But what if that is all untrue, that actually we are an integral part of creation and we are here in this life to learn, develop and live to our fullness. That is how the ancients saw it and so today, we will look through their lens on to the world. We will re-map the territory, connect some dots and put some pieces back where they belong. „The Work‟ is to bring the child back to a healthy state of trust, innocence and joy.

TRANSFORMING YOUR LIFE WITH THE POWER OF THE NON-CARDINALS How to take greater command of your life and manifest more of what you desire. March 10 & 11, April 7 & 8, May 19 & 20 Bedfordshire
With Leo Rutherford The medicine wheel teachings are stunningly wonderful multi-dimensional maps of the territory of life within the majesty of the cosmos. Medicine wheels have been used for teaching about the cosmos and how it works since antiquity. They teach the natural order of things, of the human's place in the world and of the deep purpose of life. Through the process of experiencing each direction energetically we gain illumination and understanding of our lives and compassion for our self in our daily challenges. To help clear the path to what you desire the course will enable you to delve into your own issues and obstacles to abundance in a practical and experiential way using techniques such as shamanic journeying. We will be exploring the following on the medicine wheel:1: The power of the non-cardinal points of the Medicine Wheel. While the cardinal points are the fixed energies which hold things together, the non-cardinal are the movers. We will work with the energy of the movers to move our -selves and our lives. 2: The Laws of Attraction are revealed by the non-cardinals: Seven Laws which you need to fully understand and work with in order to be able to manifest your dreams. Quantum physics shows: vibrations seek to match / like attracts like. Like thoughts will attract similar vibrations. What we focus on with emotional intensity, we draw to us. 3: The Seven Arrows of light and shadow. This teaching brings us a map of how we tend to hold energy static and in learned patterns. It teaches how to liberate our-self from the old shoulds, musts and oughts into freedom
and self love, and therefore the ability to live compassionately and lovingly towards all beings. 4: Petty tyrants and how to master them. The tyrants wheel is an extrapolation of the negative energies of the eight directions and is a wonderful teaching of how to understand and deal with difficult people in your life and difficult energies within yourself. And to grow from them. We must bring our inner being into harmony with our conscious intention. If our inner self / sub-conscious has unhealed agendas, they will affect what we manifest. Such as we must heal any tendencies to self-sabotage. When we get All of Our-Self working together for the same goal, we become truly Power-Full. Weekends: 1: March 10 & 11: The powers of the non-cardinal points of the Medicine Wheel. „Getting off the cross‟ of the Cardinals. Introduction to the Seven Arrows and the Seven Laws of Attraction. 2: April 7 & 8: Patterns and Habits. Experience of petty tyrants. How they are teachers that are sent to us for free! „Seeing‟/learning the lessons they bring, embracing the strengths they push us to find within ourselves. How that relates to the Laws of Attraction 3: May 19 & 20: Transforming wounds into power. Learning to attract/create what you really want and not what you don‟t want. Letting go that which no longer serves. Walking in Beauty on your own terms. At Clophill Centre, Shefford Rd, Clophill, Beds, MK45 4BT. Tel 01525 862278. email: firstname.lastname@example.org Cost: £457 (Deposit £150 + instalments)
STIRRINGS OF SPRING - Listening deeply, finding rhythm A workshop for women March 16th – 18th Friday Evening to Sunday Afternoon. East Sussex
With Lorraine Grayston & Dawn Russell A Weekend of Gentle Awakening From Winter's Sleep You are invited to take time out and feed your soul with the gift of nature and gentle awakening to the rhythm of your life force, ready for Spring. In this workshop we will turn our attention to the stirrings of spring within, helping you to sense your emerging creativity for the year to come and to begin to dream it's expression. We are blessed on this part of the Earth with four different seasons, each one with it's own unique gift, to help us stay healthy, vibrant and connected. In nature Winter is a time of rest and rejuvenation. It is a time when the next cycle of creation is dreamt and the cup of creative life force, used for the last cycle of manifestation, is refilled. Spring is a time when those seeds of winter, which lay deep in the Earth Mother‟s embrace, are encouraged to awaken by the warm, life bringing, caresses of the Sun. It brings forth the dreams that are ready to "Spring" into life and warming the Earth so we may dance our renewed life force into the next round of expression and release. The Awakening will be aided by: The Medicine drum, Sound, Fire, Circle of women, Shamanic journeying, Nature and The Elements, Altered states of perception The Venue for our Awakening weekend is a retreat centre set in ten acres of land on the Severn Sisters country
park and next to Friston Forest, with beautiful walks and views out to the sea and forest. Registration and Fees: The full cost of the weekend (including accommodation and food) is £245.

SHAMANIC HEALING and how the Universe works April 14th – 15th Saturday - Sunday Brighton With Leo Rutherford
The Universe works like a Hall of Mirrors. At all times people and events are mirroring your inner life process and prodding you to develop, to grow and to become more (en)lightened. Quantum physics shows that vibrations seek to match / like attracts like. Like thoughts will attract similar vibrations. What we focus on with emotional intensity, we draw to us. The stunningly wonderful multi-dimensional maps are based on the Medicine Wheel teachings of the ancients. They teach the natural order of things, of the human's place in the world and of the deep purpose of life. In this workshop: *Shamanic journeys opening to parallel worlds to access knowledge and wisdom. *Maps of the Universe. The Medicine Wheels show how it fits together. *Beyond matter - experience the Universe as energy. The Shamans‟ Path is a way to knowledge and it teaches fundamental truths about our world. Expect a challenging and moving weekend which will affect how you „see‟ - and therefore how you are - in the world. Weekend, non-residential, `11am – 5pm both days At Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton BN1 2LR. Cost: £90 / some concs. Booking: 01273 204204 / www.evolutionarts.org.uk
Woman Wild and Still Ongoing Course, June to Sep 2012. Please contact us if you are interested in this course
The journey of woman from girl-child to wise-woman has been one of the most challenging a being can take over the last few thousand years. This course is about honouring the power (life force) and unique Medicine within each woman and helping to reclaim the power that has been lost or forgotten. The Journey we take will be a journey of Soul Retrieval, of Recapitulation, of Dreaming, of Celebration and of deep connection to the Earth. Through the course of our lives, through trauma, social expectations and mythologies we form our energy into habits and patterns and give away our power – the downside. The upside is that through the challenges and with the help of allies i.e. people, situations and our connection to nature, we learn about our strengths. We will take an ancient road of teachings and initiation, working with the earth and the elements, your own strength, ritual and ceremony to awaken your own depth of stillness and wild nature, your true nature. Stillness To be still is to have relief from the incessant ramblings (and sometimes harassment) of the mind, to be able to be aware of the observer within us, the greater consciousness - the part of us that experiences / witnesses life. In this stillness is peace, an awareness that all is as it is. From this state emerges inspiration (to be in spirit), insight. Wildness To be wild is to be natural, unobstructed by external influences, guided by our own instincts .To be wild is to allow the cosmic energies to flow through oneself, a masterpiece created by spirit, the greater consciousness. We invite a space to explore and release your own unique & collective expression of spirit. Girl Child Parenting and the influence of siblings and society is sometimes more than just guidance and often results in suppression of our natural development, of our true expression. This can lead to a loss of our vital force, our life force, a disconnection from our innocence / inner sense of our selves and the universe. We will visit the child and help her to re-member herself. We will work together with compassion & truth to allow the child in you to remember her trust (in herself & life), her innocence and her ability to allow her emotions (energy in motion) to flow through her. We will explore how you have been tamed and your desire for expansion, adventure and freedom. Adolescence As we seek expansion the energy of adolescence rises – the rising of our sexuality and passion, the desire for individualism, our break from dependency – a natural rising to experience the life we have come into with all of our senses. How does this chaotic wild energy fit into a stifled society and what effect has our early childhood had on our ability to trust its expression? We will invite your adolescent energy to jump into the fires of chaos and emerge into the…… Mother The power of logic and scientific materialism has denied the power of the dreamer, of inner knowing, of intuition (the inner tutor), the place of the deep feminine, the Great Mother. Through our motherhood (our wombs) we are intimately connected to the web of life. Women, during their moontime were the dreamers/visioners for the community. The Earth Mother gives birth a thousand times and so do we, either consciously or unconsciously. We will enter into the Dreamtime and learn how we dream and manifest the Great Mother energy. You will see yourself reflected in the great Dreaming Consciousness. Enchantress As we ripen as mature women we face the dilemma of being washed up and past it or an enchanting woman of experience and sensuality – a woman who knows the taste of her being, her emotions, her growing wisdom, her sexuality and sensuality. You will be invited to step into the dance of the enchantress within you. Contact Lorraine or Dawn on 01435 810308. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
VISIONQUEST July 7th – 14th Saturday to Saturday Wales
With Leo Rutherford and Dawn Russell “Where there is no vision, the people perish” Is change in the air for you but you don‟t quite know what? / Do you sometimes feel stuck? / Are you having a crisis in some part of your life? At times of change it is a wonderful thing to take time out alone in nature and Quest for Vision. We offer a week at Pistyll Rhaeadr in which you will be enabled and supported to experience a three day traditional Vision Quest. (Or two day if you prefer) The traditional Vision Quest consists of three phases: * Severance - separating from the stuff of everyday life. For this we work with you individually to help you prepare practically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. * Transition - This is the questing time, alone in nature, no group leaders („parents‟) to support you, on your own, fasting and being with the infinity of existence. At times it can seem very boring, but boredom is a great gateway. Through the gateway one confronts the Unknowable Spirit, the immensity of Creation - and one‟s self. We are reflected in the immensity and it is reflected in us. * Re-incorporation - the Return bearing Gifts Of Unknown Things to help you to find your Sacred Dream and access the energy and determination to live it to the full. We tell our stories around the fire and the realisations come as each person‟s story reflects upon everyone else‟s. As we learn to manifest our Dream-Life into the everyday we can begin to live from the simplicity of abundance rather than feelings of poverty, lack and need. In this time of world conflict and rapid change, these abilities are priceless. Dawn and Leo have lead many people into the Quest over the last 20 years and have quested many times themselves. Accommodation, food etc is all included. VENUE: PISTYLL RHAEADR, NORTH WALES Inclusive Fee: £595 Booking deposit £100
EARTH CHILD - TRANSFORMING THE WOUNDED CHILD INTO THE MAGICAL CHILD Saturday evening 28thth July – Thursday 2nd August 2012 Derbyshire
With Dawn Russell, Leo Rutherford and Lorraine Grayston “No harm must come to the children” This is an ancient saying that comes from a deep knowledge of caretaking for our earth and for all living creatures ….including ourselves. Our childhood is a time when we can learn that we are an integral part of life, part of the
community/collective. It is time when we are at our most sensitive, open, vulnerable, trusting, inquisitive and loving. What happened to these places in you? Over the recent course of history we have collectively undermined our children, fed them (that‟s you and me!) with a sense of fear and scarcity on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. This isn‟t always in your face; often it is very subtle, eating away at our sense of self worth and self esteem. What are the symptoms of this in us, in our society? Ever felt not good enough? That you are not up to it? Ever felt unlovable and unloved? Ever stepped back when you wanted to step forward? Withdrawn when you really wanted to be part of? Or do you fill your life with lots of activity yet you still feel empty? Are you ever fully at peace? When the here and now is not OK, we invariably have to look back to our early years. We call it „doing the work of the South‟, „erasing personal history‟, the south being the place of the child. The „Work‟ is to bring the child back to his/her healthy state of trust and innocence, the knowing that we have a right to our place in family/community, where we are loved and respected, a place within our self that is at peace. We invite you to come and do this work with us. This is an intensive course and will push your „comfort zones‟ in order to get to a place of much greater freedom within. Some of the practices we will use include: Working close with nature Story work Sacred enactment Bioenergetics Dance / movement Fire ceremony Sweat lodge Medicine Wheel teachings And many other tools from shamanic and psychotherapeutic principles. At Unstone Grange, Crow Lane, Unstone, Derbyshire, S18 4AL Limited numbers. Cost inclusive of residence and food £685 (Booking Deposit£150)
