August Meditation Evening at Sedgwick Park House, Horsham, Thursday 6th September 7.15-8.30pm
‘Where darkness was I look upon the light.’
I was inspired to choose this quote from A Course In Miracles in response to a conversation I had with someone after the last meditation class. We discussed how easy it is to slip into the mindset of ‘ain’t it awful’ or ‘what can one person to do bring about change,’ when we look at the painful situations that exist in the world and sometimes in our own life.
Far from putting in fairy wings and painting our faces with sparkling paint (though you’re welcome to do that as well!) I think staying aligned with the ‘light’ i.e. possibility, hope, inspiration and miracles, is the most useful thing we can do in a world where there is pain and difficulties.
Join me for meditations on our own personal power and seeing beyond the illusion of the ego- which will always find fault and ways to remind ourselves to come back to the light when darkness grabs us.

Chakra Yoga, Sound Bath and Lunch at The Cow Shed Studio, Steyning, Saturday 18th August 10am-2pm
Come along to a 4 hour fun filled day of yoga, a sound bath meditation and a scrummy vegetarian lunch hosted by Ruth Mougharbel, Jane Gray and Alison Stoker.
Alison will be starting the morning off with a holistic hour and a half yoga class. Alison invites you on a yogic journey through the chakras (energy centres) introducing yoga poses for each chakra as well as meditation and mindfulness.
Whether you’re familiar with the chakras or entirely new to the concept this will be a fun, informative and a stimulating yoga session suitable for all levels. We’ll work to move any stuck energies that you might be holding onto in your body, mind or emotions and clear any blocks resulting in you feeling your best, happiest and most fulfilled self.
Life is full of adventures and challenges and when our energy is flowing harmoniously our body, heart, mind and experiences reflect this.
Ruth and Jane will then host a very relaxing sound bath meditation. This begins with a guided meditation followed by a full sound bath meditation. A variety of musical instruments will be played by both Ruth and Jane, from the large symphonic gong, the chakra bowls, the ocean drum, the rain stick, thunder tube, Reiki drum, tongue drum, crystal bowl, the singing bowl and chimes. Lying down is the best option for this meditation and mats, cushions and blankets will be supplied but you’re welcome to bring more for extra comfort. You may also sit if you wish.
Ruth is a qualified Gong Master, Reiki Master and Reiki Drummer. The purpose of the Sound Bath Meditation is to lift and synchronize your own personal vibrational frequency to the vibrational frequency of the musical instruments that are used in the meditation, this is called entrainment. The result is holistic in nature and brings peace, balance and harmony back to the body.
A summer inspired vegan/vegetarian lunch will follow and hopefully if weather permits we can sit outside to eat.
Pre-booking is essential as places are limited, £45 per person. To book please text or call Ruth on 07796044921
