Monthly Women's Circle
...an internal journey to the depths of womanhood and femininity...
The Dark Moon circles are intended to offer space for women to share thoughts, emotions, voices, ideas, and dreams with one another in a supportive environment.
Previous Dark Moon Circles:
"It was a powerful circle...15 Goddesses, sitting on mattresses in a circle around flowers and candles..Once again Katherina lead us into a powerful meditaion, this time with her amazing crystal singing bowls, a healing circle for Mother Earth in these times of chaos and suffering...for the first time we experimented with chanting empowering and healing songs from the Red Path...and after tea and snacks we cleared out the mattresses and followed Taiya's guidance into a Free Spirit Chakra Bellydancing session...with scarves tied at the hips and bellys exposed we swirled, twirled, undulated and curved from top to bottom, to middle-eastern rhythms, opening and activating our chakras one by one...concluding with a celebration of dance and music, celebrating our selves, the moon, our freedom, our life."
Thank you to all those who came and shared their beautiful energies in the circle...
Celebrating New Beginnings by welcoming the Chinese New Year and following the Celtic tradition of Umolc, Roz Keep led us through an enchanting evening. By candlelight, in the shamanic tradition we called forth the 4 directions and welcomed the spiritis, called forth our ancestral mothers, reflected on releasing the old and welcoming the new, meditated with Katharina's crystal singing bowls to manifest our wishes for the new year and made a ceremonial burning ritual of that which we are willing to let go of. We closed with chanting, dancing, playing instruments to the beats of songs of the Red Path. A magical evening by all measures.
Each month we will focus on a different theme and sometimes feature guest facilitators.
These monthly gatherings are open to all women and are run on a donation basis. All funds donated will go towards covering basic costs of the evening and any additional funds will be given to a local charity of our choice. Suggestions are welcome.
Next Circle - Tuesday, March 8, 2005...at 19:00
This Dark Moon is special since March 8 is also International Women's Day, so we have a special treat from two special women visiting Chiang Mai.
Clairvoyant Group Reading and Healing
Nancy Rebecca and Yvonne Kilcup
These readings came to be when Nancy was guided to use her abilities as a clairvoyant healer to work with large groups of people. She was told that the changes in the world made it necessary to increase the rate at which the world community is healing.
What can I expect?
You will gather with others that are also divinely guided to be present. Nancy will come into the room prepared to begin the reading. She will introduce herself and then move into leading the group through a meditation. Once the group is in a meditative state then Nancy will "tune in" to the unique vibration and agreement of the group. Nancy uses her clairvoyance to see colors and images that have symbolic meaning and group contracts and at times may see group past lives. She uses the concept of the chakra/energy system as a foundation for the reading. As Nancy reads the energy in the room she is also in constant contact with the guides and angels that are supporting the event so at times may be guided to move in other unique directions with the group. The group is then led through the process of balancing and healing each of the seven main chakras bringing the issue at hand into balance using the group energy.
We all hold the space until each person has come into balance. The actual group reading and healing time is about 35 minutes. We then take a tea break and return back to the group for a time to share, process experiences and ask questions of Nancy and each other. You can expect to feel relaxed and more at peace inside. In some cases people experience releases of chronic pain. Most of all individuals feel as if Nancy was personally reading them and feel privileged to be a part of the healing everyone in the room experiences.
Nancy Rebecca, RN, Clairvoyant Reader, Healer and Teacher has been doing this work for ten years and has been doing Group Readings for 4 years.
Yvonne Kilcup, RN Clairvoyant is involved in all aspects of this work and moves throughout the group reading working with the energy in the room to keep the room a safe place to be and heal.

"FEEL THE HEALING POWER OF MOVEMENT."
Evening workshop with Beppo Kaptein
Monday, February 7,2005 and Tuesday Feb 15, 2005
"Opening of the Heart"
What is Biodanza?
'Biodanza' is a Spanish word meaning movement through life; it is a personal growth teaching. Enjoy movement and dance to music in a group to express creativity, vitality and affection. Biodanza uses music that harmonizes the natural body functions, which in turn supports your physical and emotional well being. It opens ways for more enjoyment and fulfillment of life. When you look someone in the eyes at the end of a session, it feels as if a new life has been born.
What to expect of the workshop?
The instructor will shortly present the various exercises and will invite you to express it in movements that come from within you. Since the movements come from within, they are good as they are, therefore there will never be someone analyzing or judging your way of moving/dancing. You move in your own way within the possibilities and limits that you feel comfortable with. The exercises will invite you make contact with yourself, the other and with the group. You don't need to have any previous dance experience. The workshop is for men and women of all ages.
The session will be facilitated by Beppo Kaptein, who followed a teacher training for 2 years at the Amsterdam school for Biodanza. The lesson will be given in English. He says: "Biodanza has taught me that the world consists of love, when you open your heart to it"
