What is it that you have not yet
dared dream into being?
A Dance with New Creation
A Fully Residential & Facilitated Workshop & Retreat
which includes the Forging of a Singing Bowl
with and on the Island of Orkney
July 12th - 19th, 2018
Crafting and forging singing bowls is an engagement with true alchemy, arising through the playing and engagement with many contributing energies.
We will meet metal as an ally and wondrous partner in a dance of alchemy.*
Webster's unabridged 1913 dictionary states that *Alchemy is
1. An imaginary art which aimed to transmute the baser metals into gold, to find the panacea, or universal remedy
2. A mixed metal composed mainly of brass,
3. The miraculous power of transmuting something common into something precious
What does it take to become an alchemist?
What more awareness is possible as we open new windows to ourselves through the energies of transformation?
This is an invitation to co-create with all of life - the land, the elements, the Elves, the Nature Spirits, the metal, the fire, the Ancient, the New.
Through these days on this awe inspiring land you will experience with all of your senses what it is to not only create with alchemy and sound, but become the instrument of possibility that you may never have met before.
The invitation comes in on the Elven whispers of Creation's Dance
. . . lean close and open wide..
“The slumbering sun rises on the dawn of creation
New elements arise from the old...
What is it that you dream of?
What is it that your heart knows is possible but you haven’t yet dared dream into being?
Will you join the dance of the molecules to create with the joy and abundance of being?
Will you create with us, the land, the energies and beings of Orkney a vessel of sound, one that facilitates your dreams coming to meet you, actualising into this reality as you craft yourself and that which you dream of?"
And how might these energies dance with you as you come to forge
your own sounding vessel?
Could the stories and discoveries of the past be worked and re-crafted to resound the vibrations
of your inner most being?
This island Orc-hipelago takes us to the early ages of mankind's engagement with metals.
The elements of metal have been partners in co-creation that have reverberated throughout
the earth and the cosmos for billions of years.
What can we receive from the past and re-craft, alchemise, for and as the future?
Orkney has been calling us . . .
Sometimes in a quiet whisper or a song coming in from the winds…at other times beckoning with a deep tug. Off the north coast of Scotland, the islands of Orkney hold incredible treasure - the largest stone circles of the British Isles under a vast open sky – home to chambered cairns, standing stones, ancient settlements and much more.
The recent discovery of the Ness of Brodgar predates the very beginning of the Bronze (or Copper) age and was a thriving settlement through the years: years through which the Orcadians were discovering the highly transformative and benevolent nature of copper.
Other recent archaeological and spiritual findings also suggest that a high culture of great magnitude existed in these islands – spreading out as far as Scandinavia and all across the British Isles, of which Orkney seemed to be the hub. This culture predates the Egyptian high culture. Artefacts, symbols and other evidence found in Egypt have been traced back to Scotland and in particular Orkney.
Spiritual research has shown that The Orkney Islands were a vast galactic university accessing information from many star-nations that were involved in seeding the Earth - the stone circles themselves transmitting and receiving for thousands of years. Through inner vision we have seen that the original 60 stones of The Ring of Brodgar have been anchor points for pillars of light and portals of information.
Whether consciously or not, being on Orkney gives us access to the elements of our bodies and the elements of creation in ways beyond the linear. Each of the stones and sites has the ability to trigger and unlock or awaken codes. The invitation for this journey is not only to allow ourselves to receive and activate these codes but also to co-create with them, birthing new instruments that will create us and have the capacity to affect the future.
Through site visits and drawing from the consciousness available on this northern scape, where there is less energetic density than in other lands, we will invite attunement and co-creation with the energies and beings of place and space, beyond time.
With group transport available we will be able to choose which of these re-awakening and magnificent sites may contribute to the creation of your bowl, your living, your body and the greater well-being of All.
Venue - Woodwick House
Our home base will be an inviting guest house and gathering place near the northern eastern coast of the main island.
Woodwick House is close to the shore in one of the few groves of trees that exist on Orkney. With a magical garden fecund with summer growth, immediate access to both chalk stream and soft ocean currents, the charming lady that is Woodwick House is a gracious and generous host during this season of maximum light in the far north.
