“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.” ~ Deepak Chopra
I believe in synchronicity, and in destiny unfolding in ways that are aligned with our Highest Good, especially when we are in times of spiritual and psychic awakening.
My August Temple of Light Shamanic Meditation Retreat has been booked out for months. And it’s the last one I am going to run at this venue and in this format.
Now a vacancy has suddenly opened due to a participant needing to cancel to be able to support a loved one through unexpected surgery.
I know that there is someone who needs to be on this course with us and that the sudden cancellation gives them that opportunity. Is that person you?
Temple of Lightis one of my favourite Retreats. It’s a gentle but powerful week of meditation and private journeying where I guide you every step of the way in learning a shamanic meditation that will continue to grow you and grow with you long after this retreat finishes.
I know that this group is special, and I’m including some new teachings on this course that are very advanced. You’ll cope with them fine. It’s time.
So, if you’ve been waiting for a meditation retreat that can transform your life this is the one for you.

At the beginning of every month, I discuss the energies and gifts of the month ahead and how we can best use them to make our lives satisfying, meaningful and productive. I also choose a card to support the energies of the month. The deck I am using this year is The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid, and June’s card is 8 of Fire.
June brings energies of growth and transformation.
This month you can build on existing situations, foundations and opportunities, further transforming your life through work and self-belief. You’ll start to see results, and your progress will become visible to others too.
The power of teamwork and of focus can’t be overestimated this month. There are so many choices in front of you now, and you may feel like there are too many choices and that everything is moving past you too fast.
If you feel like that, look for some quiet time amid the bustle and haste. Use nature and meditation to bring you back to calm. Choose just a few things on which to focus.
Let the rest go for now, or delegate it to someone else. And get a team together – people who can help and support you. You’ll go so much further together than trying to get it all done on your own.
June puts an emphasis on your health, healing and wellbeing. Don’t let your health slide at the expense of your dreams and goals. Look at ways to work sustainably and get help wherever you can.
Make sure to get a health check, and to keep on top of all of the habits and choices that let you live your best life.
Leave a little time for celebration this month too. Don’t let everything be everyday ordinary.
You don’t need a reason to celebrate – being alive is enough!
Surround yourself with people who support and uplift you.
Do things that make you feel alive. Celebrate others too. Share the joy around.
Fill your life with colour, love and passion. Trust in the journey and believe in good outcomes.
Best crystals this month?
Map Jasper and Peach Moonstone
Map Jasper helps you to concentrate, analyse and understand. It supports the adrenals and counteracts overthinking and intellectual exhaustion.
Peach Moonstone encourages self-care, soothes worry, raises vibration and stimulates your capacity to problem solve using both intuition and reason.
Essential oils to support your journey?
My choice for oils that will support focus, clarity, planning and action this month are Peppermint, Rosemary and Lemon. Choose one or all of them for your diffuser – they work beautifully together.
For relaxing, enjoying lift and lifting your mood try any of these oils on their own or in combination – Wild Orange, Lavender, Geranium, Frankincense and Cinnamon Bark.
I’m passionate about essential oils and their capacity to support our wellness journey and our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. If you’d like to know more or want to source the oils I recommend and trust visit this site or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Wishing you a satisfying journey this month. Make the most of it – these energies are life-changing and life enhancing.
“The calm within the storm is where peace lives and breathes. It is not within perfect circumstances or a charmed life… it is not conditional. Peace is a sacred space within, it is the temple of our internal landscape. We are free to visit it, whenever we seek sanctuary. Underneath the chaos of everyday living, peace is patiently awaiting our discovery… go within.” ~ Jaeda DeWalt
I’m excited to announce my next residential retreat – my Temple of Light ™ Shamanic Meditation Retreat, to be held at Sangsurya, Byron Bay from the 3rd- 8th August 2019.
This isn’t your ordinary meditation course. This retreat is essentially an opportunity to connect more deeply with your Soul Energy and Guides than you might ever have thought possible. Let me tell you more…
There is a very special meditation that I practice on a very regular basis. It’s not just a meditation, it’s a destination – and it’s one of the things that has most helped me to come into my own intuitive and psychic abilities, and that has enabled me to deal with health problems, pain and suffering when there was no other help available.
In Ancient cultures our transitions from childhood to puberty, and from puberty to adulthood were marked by ritual, ceremony and the exchange of information. The rituals were especially important for individuals with psychic awareness. These individuals were given specific training in meditation and energy techniques to help them to connect with and explore their abilities, to travel deep within themselves, and to move into connection with the spiritual realms.
A shamanic journey is a journey within. This sacred journey allows us to access a level of consciousness where we can more easily tune into intuitive and spiritual guidance. We learn to listen to our bodies. We learn to listen to our hearts. We learn to listen to our souls and our own inner wisdom. We learn to listen to the Earth, and to all that surrounds us.
On such a journey we often discover things deeply buried – all manner of gifts and longings and talents neglected. We are able to practice Soul Retrieval as we connect to the aspects of ourselves that have long been lost, shamed or shunned. When we embark on a shamanic journey we gift ourselves space to become whole again, in flow again, and we experience growth and peace.
This particular shamanic meditation technique arose from a gift I was given long ago – a fragment of a sacred meditation – and the result is one I have channelled, developed and tuned over decades. I call this meditation Temple of Light ™, and it is one of the most important practices in my life. It supports you no matter what your religion or spiritual beliefs. This simple meditation technique allows you to access an energetic destination which is multi-layered and that last you an entire lifetime in terms of the insights, wisdoms and developments that it will help you to manifest for yourself and others. That is what the Temple of Light ™ is all about. No matter what your current level of knowledge, spiritual connection or metaphysical ability, this technique will work for you.
I have updated this meditation significantly for this retreat, to reflect the greater need for self-awareness and self-care that is required when we walk a spiritual path. I have also introduced some shamanic rituals that I have not felt to share for a very long time.
Over this six-day immersive experience I will guide you through a series of meditation and self-reflection exercises designed to open you up to your wise and intuitive self, your Guides and energetic helpers, and the talents and gifts within you. I have also organised two special guest lecturers to support your self-care journey.
The Temple of Light ™’s energetically connected ‘rooms’ will provide you with a beautiful and sacred shamanic meditation template that will allow you to manifest immediate change in your life, and to rapidly accelerate both your personal and spiritual development. Whatever your interests, the Temple of Light ™ will provide you with what you need, customized to your own energy and purpose. It is a place of comfort and sanctuary, attuned to your exact personal needs.
If you are interested in developing psychic or metaphysical skills, creating healing energy, or gaining access to creative or financial flow, or if you’re stuck and don’t know how to move forward, this is the retreat for you. It is suitable for complete beginners and advanced practitioners too.
We have not yet advertised this retreat, but the demand is high and over half the available places have already been filled.
Will one of the last places be for you?
It is unlikely that I will run this retreat again in its current format. So, if you’ve been waiting for a meditation retreat that can transform your life this is the one for you.
