Blasting into Beltane!

Blasting into Beltane! The birds are singing, the trees and plants are blooming and everything is brimming with life! Hawthorn blossoms, bluebells blanket the woods and ferns are beginning to unfurl. At this time of year the earth energies are at their strongest and most active. Nature has erupted and it is time to create, to throw yourself into all that you need to achieve your goals. There are no limits! Ride the wave of Spring all the way through to Summer Solstice and beyond! This is the perfect time of year to bring ideas, hope and dreams into action! April gave us the first of a number of powerful eclipses and planetary alignments so go easy on yourselves. This is an intense time. Be patient, flow like water through great shifts and be ready to let go of everything that is outdated that no longer serves us. Exciting times are ahead, just be ready to embrace the change! ...

A change is a foot!

Can you feel it?? There's a change in the bird song, a change in the air, a shift in peoples energy and the first spring flowers are on there way to bursting through the soil. Nature is slowly emerging from the depths of winter and our minds and souls are slowly emerging from their slumber. We are reminded that the light is returning once again, hope is all around us. Happy New Year everyone! "The year 2022 is ruled by the 6 vibration which guides our actions towards Love and our desire for justice and fairness. 6 is ruled by Venus, which relates to our sense of home and putting our houses in order. And not just our personal homes but bringing about the change and healing that our Earth-home so vitally needs. For this we must unite together in this common cause and seek to dismantle our old conditioning of competition and separation and embrace a new consciousness of friendship, compassion and Unity. This year make a pledge to let all your actions be guided by your most loving response. Heal disharmony with acts of loving kindness and with conscious healing strategies. Let the power of Love rule this year and see what happens!" Glennie Kindred As the birds and animals are beginning to build their nests, look towards laying a good foundation from which to launch yourself into Spring. Its time to start planning! News for 2022!And so our new year has begun! I hope you are feeling rested and ready for a new chapter with love & light in your hearts! I am so happy to be continuing with my monthly sessions at Birmingham Buddhist Centre. 2022 dates are below. Please email me if you would like to book on to any of the dates.

2021 Roundup and 2022 dates!

The Wisdom of Winter Drawing in, drawing to a close. Resting and retreating, slumber. As the earth sleeps, she dreams. As you rest, dreams may find you too. At the Winter Solstice we reach the depth of that darkness with the longest night of the year. Darkness has reached its peak. We cannot live always in the glare of the sun. Accept the dark and you will find its beauty, magic and learning. More than ever, this is a time we must trust our instincts, trust our guts and listen to our intuitions. Realise your power and look within for the signs, messages and guidance. 2021 Round up and News for 2022What a strange and mixed year its been. But we made it through! I am eternally grateful for the love and unwavering support from all that continue to attend my sound sessions. The work and healing is always two way and I will continue to offer sound work through all bumps and obstacles life throws at us! Thank you to Inga Liljestrom for her magical offerings in November. Thank you to Touchbase Pears for giving me the opportunity to do some of the most full-filling work that fills me joy. Thank you to the Buddhist Centre for allowing me the space to do my sound work through this all. Thank you to my sonic tools and my intuition, without which I would be unable to carry out my soul work.Good news - I have sound bath dates set for 2022! Sunday 30th January 5-6:30pm Sunday 20th February 5-6:30pm Sunday 27th March 5-6:30pm Saturday 30th April 5-6:30pm Sunday 22nd May 5-6:30pm Sunday 12th June 5-6:30pm I still have a few places left for the double whammy Full Moon/Pre-Winter Solstice session this coming weekend on Saturday 18th December so contact me asap if you would like to reserve a place!

Autumnal Tidings

Autumnal Shifts It is suddenly upon us, the days darker, the night deeper, bringing its gifts.The allotment shows end fruits; sunflowers raised high, yellowed marrows, tomatoes loaded on vines. The air feels damp. Red glints on the hawthorn in the shadows. A wanderer tells of a moor valley lit by rowan berries. Afternoon turns twilight, the shift is upon us, the pull is inward, to dreams, renewal. Stargazing later, wrap up warm. The Autumn Shift, Rose Cook News Hello all. I hope this golden time of change finds you well, warm and excited by the coming months, conserving our energy and discovering from within! As we enter into a new season, so does our pace, environment, thoughts, actions and all natural life around us. Autumn is a magical, wild and continually changing time of the year. Keep going outdoors and connecting with nature, whatever the weather! Go seek what fruits mother nature has to offer that will heal the colds & coughs. What spells will you cast, what magic will you weave? Accept goodness and possibility with gratitude for what is freely given. Accept your worth and accept your gifts. Dare to dream your own magic!Sound bath dates are booked in for the rest of 2021 with a very special session in November. Get in touch quick to book your place! Autumn Sound Bath dates: Sunday October 17th 5-6:30pm Sunday November 14th 3-4:30pm : 5-6:30pm (CaCao Ceremony & Drum Journey followed by Sound Bath) Saturday December 18th 3-4:30pm & 5-6:30pm November brings an extra special double wammy of sonic goodness. Before the sound bath I will be running a Shamanic Drum Journeying workshop and Cacao Ceremony with the wonderful sound healer and singer/songwriter Inga Liljestrom. We will be holding a space to enable participants to release all that is outmoded and unneeded in your life, and then bring in a new intention to replace the old way. Cacao is a powerful Plant Medicine that helps release emotional blockages that no longer serve us, find forgiveness in ourselves and others, and shows us the way forward if we are stuck or afraid of making the necessary life changes in order to move on. We will be learning drum rhythms to bring back balance into our lives, invigorating and strengthening connections with ourselves and our community. The rhythms serve to balance the chakra systems, as well as the body, soul and spirit and are easy and fun to play. The second part of the drum session will be journeying, a time to relax to the continuous beat used in Shamanic work, that is said to synchronise the...

Autumn 2021 Sound Bath dates!

So I hadn't planned to be sending this update quite so soon.We expected to be moving to Herefordshire round about now (hence my early farewells in June!) but unfortunately the house we thought was ours didn't work out. Yet another housing blow during what feels like the worst time in history to find a home, fear of homelessness and many confusing upheavals. Although this has been an incredibly unsettling year for us with much uncertainty, insecurity and precariousness, I do believe the universe has a plan for us!This now means we will be in Birmingham for another 6 months...

Blessings & Farewell for a while!

Blessings & Farewells! So June saw my last group sound bath for a while. We are making our departure from the warm arms of Brumtown and venturing forth in to the somewhat unknown! I hope to return to running the monthly Buddhist Centre group sound baths in the Autumn once we are settled in our new home and I will be resuming 1-2-1 sessions from our new home in the Wye Valley. I will keep you all updated with when I'm back in business through my website/Facebook/mailouts/Instagram. I am so unbelievably grateful to all those that have supported me and my sound work over the last 10 years, especially over this last challenging year. The strength, kindness and acceptance I've felt, particularly from my regulars, has truly been a huge assurance and inspiration. Beautiful pre-Summer Solstice vibes at Junes Sound Bath...
