a*) Leah Mohammed: “Transforming the Mind to Cultivate Well-Being” (Lecture: 2 hrs)
Mindfulness is a state achieved by focussing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations. The key to growing mindfulness is to shift awareness from thoughts or the mind space to the body as well as the senses and the nonphysical human energy structure. In this workshop, we will outline some simple steps and practice shifting awareness to cultivate mindfulness. Change is easier than you think; come and understand why.

b*) Dawn Bramadat: “Freedom from Ancestral Wounding” (Workshop: 2 hrs)
Trans-generational trauma is now becoming understood by the establishment as a legitimate source of suffering. Most therapeutic work on this theme is presently focussed on repetitive dysfunctional life situations, and treatment of the causative emotional and psychological wounding through art therapy, counselling, and so on. This workshop is a series of deep guided meditations into every part of the physical body, accessing the memories and beliefs stored there as our genetic inheritance, to release all that we are able and willing to release in the moment.
