|Happy Summer ~ July 2023Warm sunny days of June enabled many events to move outside, weaving sound magic with the sounds of nature, from the vibrant Family Retreat at High Nature, on to the outdoor Yoga Sala at Dartmoor Reach Alpaca Farm, with very inquisitive Alpacas, beautiful Mothercombe House, two Home Ed groups with enthusiastic children and the beautiful Deer Wood Trust. I was thrilled to be invited to a local primary school during their ocean theme week to take the children and staff on an ocean themed sound journey focusing on the waves of breathe, waves of sound and a guided meditation.|
Summer Solstice Sound Journey bookings at many events and the Summer Solstice Retreat Day with Katie Carswell (Women’s Circles) were such a joy celebrating summer, the nourishment of the sun, but most importantly celebrating all who joined. I have also been honoured to share Sound Journey’s at some fabulous retreats with amazing yoga teachers I am feeling sun kissed and super grateful. July signifies the height of summer and all its glorious radiance. The rising summer energy is powerful for acting on our intentions, making things happen, growing creativity and remembering self-love practices, to pause, breathe and take in the beauty. Summer Solstice around a fire, with beautiful people, sharing gratitude for the first half of the year and setting intensions, nothing complicated just appreciating being in the moment, the wonderful energy, warmth and nourishment that summer can bring.
Why not offer yourself some time, just for you, this July, to reflect on your inner light and radiate joy. Events to bring June to a close
