Living from the Heart Relationship Workshop & Seminar Schedule
Embracing the shadow in relationships & unleashing your creative light
Venue: North London
Times: 10 – 4pm both days
The World needs Conscious People. Our World Is a Reflection Of Everyone’s Consciousness. Yes, your consciousness makes a difference. Your commitment to bring consciousness to your inner world can make huge shifts personally and globally, it can have a profound influence on what occurs in the physical world. Fear lives in the personal and collective Shadow. Many people are afraid of the darkness within, they project it outside and fight these monsters that are projected into the world. It will be a journey of coming out of darkness into light. Making this shift requires us to allow and open to a different sense and experience of consciousness to remove what is not in harmony or alignment, physically, emotionally and spiritually. It will be a special weekend workshop, I will be working with Jahnavi who was raised in a family of bhakti yoga practitioners at Bhaktivedanta Manor in Hertfordshire. She is a multi- disciplinary artist, trained in both Indian and Western classical dance and music, as well as writing and visual arts. After graduating with a BA in Linguistics and Creative Writing, she travelled internationally with the sacred music band, ‘Gaura Vani and As Kindred Spirits’, for five years, presenting the dynamic stories and spiritual culture of India for a fresh, contemporary audience. She now helps to run ‘Kirtan London’, a project which aims to make sacred mantra music accessible and relevant to a wider audience, including schools, mental health institutions. She writes regularly on spirituality and the arts for various publications, as well as on her blog – ‘The Little Conch’ (www.littleconch.com). She has released her debut sacred music album, ‘Like a River to the Sea’ in July 2015 and was nominated for a Grammy in 2016 for the charity album ‘Bhakti Without Borders’. When you go into the darkness inside yourself and to face that darkness, you discover that it is not that dark after all, the fears that you had, can be transformed, you can discover the light that is hidden within the darkness, the light that holds so much potential and creativity
Love is a powerful force that inevitably brings to the surface the parts of ourselves that we desperately try to keep hidden. Everyone has a shadow, and the less it is recognised and embodied in our conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. It is the thing which trips us up over and over again, thwarting our most well-meant intentions.
Many people blame relationship problems on a lack of love and the other person not ‘being enough’. In truth it is the challenge of being close and loving in a relationship that uncovers the difficulty. A close relationship is a powerful light, and like any strong light it casts a large shadow. When you stand in the light of a close relationship, you will encounter the shadow. ‘There is a psychological law that says when we don’t own and consciously recognise a significant inner conflict the situation has to be played out through external circumstances. This is sometimes known as “fate”
On our journey towards greater self-awareness spiritual expansion, we encounter the Shadow Self. This is hidden from our conscious self-image. The Shadow represents the rejected, repressed, undeveloped and denied. These are dark disowned aspects of our being. When the full extent of the shadow is revealed, it can be quite a shock. Yet there is positive undeveloped potential in the Shadow because it is always with us and holds so much of our life energy. The key is to recognise it and transform it in useful and positive ways.
During the weekend you will:
- Move towards authenticity and personal power

Love, Sex and intimacy
Venue: North London
Times: 10 – 4pm both days
Many couples and individuals I work with wish to create a feeling of equality and reciprocity in all aspects of their relationship, including sexually.
Sex And Intimacy Workshop is for couples who wish to deepen and renew their connection to each another and build an enduring and deeply satisfying relationship.
Many people know the language of Sex without knowing the language of Intimacy. Brene Brown says that vulnerability has three components – Risk, Emotional Exposure and Uncertainty. Learn to create the right environments for intimate relationships to flourish. Learn to reveal yourself without a mask.
Embrace your sexuality as a special, and sacred, part of your life. This workshop is open to all regardless of sexual orientation or if you are in a committed relationship or single.
The weekend will explore sexuality, sexual energy, desire, and pleasure and your right to feel and express emotions. Embrace your sexuality as a special, and sacred, part of your life. This workshop is open to all regardless of sexual orientation or if you are in a committed relationship or single. To liberate the free attention necessary for developing an enduring and satisfying sex life, you must first banish anxiety, shame, guilt, and inhibitions about sexual expression. This means opening your mind to new ways of thinking about sexuality and experiencing sexuality as a powerful resource for full self-expression, health, happiness, and harmony.
Everyone wants and deserves to love and be loved and your capacity to love others is greatly related to your ability to love yourself. Many people’s experiences of love, intimacy and sexuality are linked unconsciously to feelings of shame; guilt or fear. Your thoughts about this can prevent you from fully expressing and receiving love. You will be guided to discover the root causes that block you from deeper experiences. You will develop and find new ways of communicating deeply from your heart and your authentic self, bringing conscious love and into your relationships.
This workshop will help you to develop a healthy sense of sexuality and desire. You will;

The Art of Intimacy
Venue: North London
Times: 10 – 4pm both days
Exploring ways of relating
The Art of Intimacy Exploring ways of Relating
Living from The Heart is about creating and strengthening intimacy, love and compassion.
When we ‘fall in love’ our deepest need to be seen and understood is awoken. This is one of the most exciting and deeply fulfilling processes we can experience in our lives. Yet Intimacy is the real truth about love and relationships. Where romance may depict a rocky path to true love, intimacy describes the way of we actually exist within the relationship. Intimacy focuses on the quality of contact within a relationship.
We learn to understand the cycles of giving and receiving. The closer we come to another, the better we come to know ourselves. Being in a relationship can be a catalyst for discovering your true essence, and in the process, becoming more wholly and authentically you.
Intimacy represents itself as the truth about love and relationships. The word intimacy means ‘profoundly interior.’ It comes from the superlative form of the Latin word inter, meaning ‘within.’ It could be translated ‘within-est,’ or ‘most within.
Separateness and the need for connection can create a struggle towards true intimacy, which can be experienced as aspects of difference that two people share.
Intimacy is the essence of love and friendship. It is a closeness of sharing and understanding, of knowing and seeing another person and being known and seen by them. Most people don’t know how to be, how to accept and embrace what is. The capacity for intimacy requires a certain confidence and trust in others. In this workshop, you will learn how intimacy is a way of expressing gift of giving and receiving.
We are not taught how to be in healthy relationships and this can cause pain and suffering. Often the way people deal with pain is to remove the stimulus and blame it on the source. .. The other person.
Much of the pain experienced not due to the action of others but on how you see the world. Issues that may surface around intimacy are;
Fear of being abandoned
Fear of being overwhelmed, – engulfed.
Rage about childhood violations,
A desire to be taken care of completely by another person
Hypersensitivity to criticism
This weekend explores all of the above and provides practical tools to help create intimacy. You will
- Learn to develop greater intimacy to enable richer friendships, warmer family dynamics and depth in your closest relationships.
- Learn to successfully communicate your own desires
- Make conscious choices within relationships
- Learn to speak from your heart and express love and appreciation in ways that touch your Partner’s heart
- Create fun, romance, passion, and intimacy.
- Rediscover the joy and spiritual potential of your relationship

Femme savage. Wild Women. Do you ever feel like the society we live in is trying to tame you?
Is time for Wise Wild Women Warriors to step into the golden light to make changes?
Can you think of times when the energy of the wild feminine can offer profound lessons. Women expressing their wildness evokes fear in many people, as it is often believed to be “out of control”.
Wise Wild women warriors. Can you think of times when the energy of the wild feminine can offer the society profound solutions to the chaos we live in? The world is in dire trouble, women need to come into their power through unleashing and embracing their wild feminine nature.
The feminine is deeply sacred, women carry power that has profound value in the world Never before have women been holding so much power to shape the future.The power to change your life, the power to realise your destiny and the power to transform the world.
It is clear that there is much imbalance in the world at present. We live in a male dominated patriarchal society based on fear, oppression, and greed.
The masculine system of power is insufficient to help create change in the world previously based on authority, power organised and based on ego rather than empowerment, spirituality, enlightenment, connection, creative expression, supportive community, meaningful contribution, authentic success, building a brighter future for the generations to come.
We need balance and peace on our planet, and in these times of deeply disturbing and often frightening world events, many of us are searching for what has been missing in modern life. The spiritual awakening currently being witnessed and experienced across the planet is an effect of the Divine Feminine being reawakened in each of us again and our reconnection with Mother Earth.
The Divine Feminine energy is comprised of qualities such as love, understanding, compassion, nurturing, and empathy with others. Tenderness, gentleness, kindness are the aspects that the Living from The Heart embody that are truly lead from the heart, not from the head.
The world needs more strong women.
