Mini Thai Workshops – Thai Massage for everyone

Here’s a wonderful opportunity for a taster training of this very special dynamic healing art from Thailand.

Come along and learn how to give a relaxing Thai Yoga massage to bring ease to the mind and body, both for the giver and the receiver! We begin with a short yoga and meditation warm up to get us in the mindset for relaxing touch. Then you’ll be ready to learn some techniques, including some Thai Yoga moves, that will benefit your family and friends, or for professionals to include in your massage routines. These half day workshops are fun and accessible, fully clothed, no previous experience necessary, and you don’t need to be super fit, just agile enough to kneel on at floor level. Come with a friend or on your own, relax and enjoy!

Need to do this online? Here’s how – Grab a member of your household or bubble, grab a device to stream a ZOOM and learn without the risk but with all the fun! You can take turns and you swap places so that you can both practise the techniques AND receive them (please register both people) or it can just you learn by yourself and your friend benefits from having you practise all those wonderful techniques on them (in this case no need for them to register – just you).

Snowdrop Day

It’s a little late to be posting this really, I saw my first snowdrops 10 days ago, but having spoken to a friend who is sad just now, and patiently but painfully awaiting a little lightness of being, I felt moved to share it here again. It’s timely too, as yesterday was the new moon in Aquarius, heralding the shift from the Age of Pisces, nebulous and mutable, to the presence, grounding and connection of the Age of Aquarius. And if that’s not enough it’s also Chinese New Year! By this model we are beginning the Year of the Ox, symbolic of hardworking attitudes. Tibetan New Year, Losar, is also celebrated on the same day. So here’s to all things new, grounded in the Earth, yielding shoots of renewal ready for the necessary work of our lives ahead.

Snow Drop Day in Glasgow

Lucy Trend 23/1/2015

Today is Snowdrop day. It’s the day when I see my first snowdrops of the year and my heart jumps a little jig of delight at these tiny white drops of hope, announcing the dark days are over, it’s time to think about new beginnings, soon fresh energy will be springing up. It’s a beautiful time of year, a time to rejoice in the miracle of life.

Ancient festivals have stuck fast at this season, evolving through time with changing religions and spiritual beliefs. The festival of St Bride, the patron saint of Midwives, is a combination of the Christian festival of Candlemas, and the fire festival of Imbolc, of the pagan tradition. This celebrates the ewe’s milk coming (‘oimelc’), as early lambs are about to be born into an uncertain future, will they survive if the season is harsh, will they perish in the snow? And Candlemas holds a similarly uncertain future for the lambs, stemming from the Law of Moses, a ritual purification of the new mother at the temple, 40 days after childbirth, offering a sacrifice of a lamb as thanksgiving for new life, or more modestly in the case of Mary and Joseph, a pair of doves.

For some, the returning of the light is not joyful and rebirth is hard to see. As the days become lighter our inner shadows may seem deeper, the darkness within felt more harshly, stubborn and unyielding to external signs of hope. Patience is required; deep, slow nurturing, and drawing on our reserves of faith, that the light within will return. It is important that the beautiful stillness of Winter does not become stagnation, we must try to look to the future, be flexible and open to the shifting energies of nature. Likewise, frail lives, knowing deep down that their reserves are almost empty, have held on through the long winter, and seeing the light returning, find strength to let go of their struggle and slip away. This is the cycle of life. We each have our place on that wheel, the big wheel that keeps on turning.

So, now that the snow has trampled the last surviving undergrowth revealing the bare bones of the landscape, we have an opportunity to see our own lives laid bare, stripped down to the underlying structure. Now is a time tor considering plans for the future. We don’t have long if we want to catch the wave of growing energy that lies ahead! Snowdrops were pushing up under that snow, and now it as melted, there is no longer any doubt. Spring is coming!
