Afternoon Summer Solstice Session

Nadia Esgate lives in Kent, she is a Divine Source Transformational Energy Healer, Seichem Reiki Energy Healer, Hypnotherapist and Past Life Regression Therapist. After becoming interested in aiding individuals to reach their full potential, she has been helping people to connect with the powerful energy, within and around them, for over 15 years, using meditational, relaxation techniques and energy healing.

In this 3 and 1/2 hour afternoon workshop Nadia will connect us to the energies of the Summer Solstice. Nadia writes:

“Litha”, also known as Summer Solstice, is celebrated on June 21st, when the Sun is at its highest point, producing the longest day and the shortest night.  In ancient times, fires were lit, and communities came together, dancing and celebrating, when the power of the Sun is at its peak. Join us, as we connect with this ancient energy, through meditation.  Then dance in the warmth of the summer sunlight, embracing the power of nature in the ancient woodlands at Whalebones, in preparation for ‘Litha’ on Wednesday 21st June.

By the end of the session, you will have a better understanding of how to:

  • connect to the energies within you and all around you
  • feel rooted on the earth
  • be able to do this whenever you need eg when stressed
  • feel into what is no longer needed
  • transform that which no longer serves you
  • open to Love, Peace and Stillness
