About The Event
At Garden of Alchemy, we help you step into your own personal alchemy by unlocking the wisdom that already resides within you, using the natural medicines of this Earth alongside Western and Eastern teachings and modalities. We hold a space for you to be nothing less than the chance to be the change you want to see in the world
You are so very Welcome to this day for your soul. “See it as a spa day for your soul”. The Garden of Alchemy has created a deeply relaxing, restorative and connecting day. Set in the beautiful location of the New forest at the renovated -The Retreat, you will be treated to a day of deepening into your body, mind and spirit. The day will start with an intention setting process to connect you to yourself and to find what is it that you wish to call into your life at this time. Vanessa then will be offering a heart centred Yin yoga session with a focus on the body through the lens of the middle dantien (the heart). She is inspired by the connection to cycles of nature with themes around 5 elements, moon cycles and meridians. The session will be a combination of energy work gently opening up the meridian pathways and yin accompanied by live harp to invite deep letting go of held tension so there is more spaciousness to reconnect to ourselves. Siobhan will accompany Vanessa with ethereal sounds of the Harp while you settle into a lovely yin yoga practice. This yin practice will also be accompanied by the warm honey sounds of Tibetan Sound Massage bowls that will be occasionally placed on and around the body to help relax the muscles taking you deeper into your poses and practice.
After this sumptuous practice you will float into a delicious vegetarian /vegan lunch designed with herbs and spices to gently cleanse and nourish you. The afternoon is spent journeying with the medicine of cacao and sound. Annabelle from the Garden of Alchemy will introduce and guide you into a delicious Cacao Ceremony centred around the theme of ‘Being connected’. This is an opportunity to dive a bit deeper into your hearts desires and to connect with the intelligence of your heart. There will be a warm fire and time to share as Annabelle guides you through this profoundly connecting experience which will lead into a time to integrate all this love in a healing sound bath.
And just when it couldn’t get any better Siobhan is going to guide you into a sound bath journey where you can completely let go and relax into the pure vibrations from the alchemy crystal bowls, ancient gong, shamanic drum, rain stick and chimes.
The day will be full of sensual delights to nourish and awaken all the senses. Everything is designed to take you on a deep journey from medicinal teas, essential oils, shamanic sounds and so much more.
