Mindful Breathing and Meditation

Join me on this weekly course to learn mindful breathing techniques and meditation to cultivate inner peace and calm the mind. Each week we will deepen our practice and skill, starting with a focus on the simple breath to develop awareness and bring us into this present moment, and learning well-proven, powerful breathing techniques which if practiced regularly can truly help you start to heal yourself.

There are so many benefits to breathing exercises and mediation, here are just a few;

  • Calm Your Mind - by bring your attention to your breathing, your normal busy mind will begin to let go of it's busyness allowing you to relax.
  • Focus - you can use the techniques in this class as a daily practice, some are so simple you can do them at your desk or in place of a coffee break. This will bring your focus into the present moment allowing you to control your thoughts and better focus on what's important.
  • Reduce Stress & Anxiety. Our minds are often worrying about what happened in the past or what might happen in the future which creates stress and anxiety in our lives. Bringing our mind into the present moment relieves us from these patters of worry and stress and thereby bringing more peace into our lives.
  • Listening. By taking the time to calm our mind and focus on what's happening in our bodies right now, physically, emotionally and spiritually we can begin to really listen to ourselves, get to know ourselves more intimately, increase our own intuition and begin to live more meaningful and fulfilling lives.
  • Community/Connection In this digital age where we have so many ways to connect with each other, we often find that we have less physical connection and social interaction with each other. Coming together gives us the opportunity to practice together, which increases the intensity and power of our practice, and also to meet other like-minded people.

Bhakti Yoga – Chant and Meditation

What is Bhakti Yoga?

Bhakti Yoga is the path "union through love and devotion." It is one of the systems of Yoga and to practice Bhakti Yoga is to having an experience of oneness with everything. The Sanskrit word bhakti comes from the root word bhaj, which means “to adore or worship God.”

Through our devotional striving, Bhakti Yoga takes us to this experience of the Ultimate Love and Truth." Sri Anandamayi Ma

What does Bhakti Yoga involve?

Our practice is to gather together and using the healing power of our voices, we sing devotional chants and mantras and meditate, which moves us into our hearts and to the awareness of love that is our true nature.

Chanting, especially with others, is known to calm the mind, allowing us to let go of anxious thoughts and worries and brings us to a place of peace and clarity. You do not need any experience in singing or meditation, everyone is welcome.

Lucia has a passion for sacred chants and mantras and the power of the human voice to connect us to each other, to the divine in each of us and to the one voice of the heart. Lucia holds a warm, safe and healing space, one where you can discover the voice of your soul.

The class will be held monthly on the last Sunday if each month at 7-8pm.

Group Breathwork Workshop

New Year Celebration

Breathwork is a very powerful experience with intention setting and following the longing of your soul and using a connected breath to guide and to reawaken your inner knowing. It is a journey to give you insights and clarity. An opportunity to reveal and release held patterns in your body allowing you make available to you more of your own life force, 'breathing spirit into matter'.

I have been offering one-to-one breathwork sessions and am now very excited to offer a group breathwork session. Coming together in a group amplifies the field which enables deep shifts and healing to occur. The energy of the group dynamic can help access places within that are may be difficult to bring to the surface otherwise, coming together in community promotes compassion for self and others and deepens intention and commitment.

If you are interested I would love to hear from you, places are limited to 8 (4 places already taken) - you can find more information
on breathwork here

Winter Solstice Meditation

The Winter Solstice is the shortest period of light and the longest darkness. It is a time to pause, be still, to go inward and listen to that inner voice and plant the seeds that will flourish as we prepare for the springtime that lies ahead.

What are you ready to release?
What habits are holding you back?
What is taking up too much space?
What 'new' do you want to open to?

Coming together at this potent time we will plant seeds of intention, meditate and sing ritual chant and mantras.

Temple of Words

A journey through Poetry and Music

An intuitively lead Poetry and Music Bath to nurture and renew your spirit. This immersion reaches into the inner chambers of our hearts and souls and allowing the body and mind to rest, and our inner knowing to open.

Nothing to do but bathe in the of poetry and music of the mystics and wise ones – Mary Oliver, Rumi, Heaney etc.

Breaking Surface

Let no one keep you from your journey,
no rabbi or priest, no mother
who wants you to dig for treasures
she misplaced, no father
who won't let one life be enough,
no lover who measures their worth
by what you might give up,
no voice that tells you in the night
it can't be done.

Let nothing dissuade you
from seeing what you see
or feeling the winds that make you
want to dance alone
or go where no one
has yet to go.

You are the only explorer.
Your heart, the unreadable compass.
Your soul, the shore of a promise
too great to be ignored.

Poetry Workshop

This workshop offers you an opportunity to experience the power of poetry to open your heart, to inspire you, to explore your creative selves. From stillness into a deepened breath, movement into sound and the spoken word into spontaneous writing, you are invited to deepen your connection with yourself and with those around you.

You don't need to be a poet, or even a lover of poetry to attend this workshop. Poetry has the power to cut through, to awaken, to forge new pathways. There are messages hidden inside poems that become alive to you as you hear, speak and write them.

Inspired by the work of Kim Rosen (author Saved by a Poem) and many amazing poets, I invite you to dive with me into the magical world of poetry, music, movement and sound.
