A Day with William Meader

For the second year running, William Meader, international teacher of Esoteric Philosophy (meader.org), is coming to St Davids in Wales – on Tuesday 21st May 2019. He is holding a workshop on “Soul Purpose and the Seven Rays”

This presentation is an introduction to the Seven Rays of Divine Manifestation. According to the ancient Esoteric Philosophy, all of creation comes into being through the interaction of seven great streams of energy (Rays). These Rays condition all life upon our planet and every human being is subject to their influence. From a spiritual perspective, an understanding of the Seven Rays is important because every Soul is found upon one of these divine Rays. To understand the Soul Ray is to discover one’s essential nature and spiritual purpose in life. In short, there are seven types of Souls, each having a particular quality seeking to be expressed in the outer world.  In this day-long workshop you will:

  • Discover the unique ray nature of your Soul, and the divine purpose it seeks to express
  • Acquire a wealth of theoretical and practical information on each of the seven rays
  • Discover your Personal Ray Formula through a comprehensive ray assessment and interpretation
  • Ascertain the key to your spiritual transformation by understanding the relationship between your Soul Ray and Personality Ray
  • Learn how to relate more effectively with others by considering their distinctive ray patterns

Important Note
Participants will  be able to have their own ray make-up analysed and will need to complete a questionnaire in advance.   This is done online, and it would be most helpful if people could do this by 26 April, so that William can process their answers before he leaves home for his UK trip.
When you book your place with payment, you will be sent the link  to complete the questionnaire.

Date and Time : Tuesday 21 May 2019, 10.30am-5pm
Venue: The Discovery Room, Oriel-y-Parc Visitor Centre, High St, Saint David’s SA62 6NW  [Click here for directions]
Cost : £40, payable in advance
Booking is required by 26 April: book your place by contacting Don MacGregor on donmacg@live.co.uk or phone 07900 003199. Payment can be by cheque or bank transfer.

Astrological Consultations:   While in St Davids, William will be offering a small number (4) of esoterically interpreted astrological readings. Called the Astrology of the Soul, this form of reading is designed to reveal the Soul’s purpose. In addition, it indicates how the personality (ego) tends to inhibit the Soul and reveals the means to overcome such tendencies. Readings are one hour in length, and a recording is provided. Appointments available by request to Don MacGregor. Cost: £95 (£85 for follow up appointments)

This Event is organised on behalf of CANA (www.cana.org.uk), a national group working ‘Towards Universal Spirituality’

Spiritual Health Mentor

Introducing a new local therapist…

We are all complex and interconnected beings and our spiritual wellbeing is integral to, and as important as, our physical, emotional and mental health.  When difficulties and challenges arise, we often need help to tease things out and a safe space to really hear ourselves and be truly heard by another.

How do we manage our varied relationships, our health and emotional wellbeing with more compassion and greater integrity?  How do we connect with our unique self – the treasure within – which we need to recover and perhaps discover for the first time? Jayne has guided, helped and accompanied many people over the years in their search for wholeness, healing, self-discovery and their relationship with the Divine ‘Other.’ She is a licensed and practising Spiritual Health Mentor, with the Diploma in Spirituality and Wellbeing (Spiritual Companions Trust).

Jayne can see people in person in St Davids, or via Skype.
Her fees are £35 per one hour session (concessions available).

Please get in touch via email – jaynemacgregor@yahoo.co.uk
Or by phone – 01437 454388 / 07491 985180

Turning Of The Year 2018 to 2019 Cacao Ceremony and Conscious Dance Celebration

Please note updated details for this event are below:

Welcome to this Turning Of The Year 2018 to 2019 Cacao Ceremony and Conscious Dance Celebration with Indigo Latto and Helen Pattinson,
We will have a super heart opening Cacao Ceremony with the finest Peruvian ceremonial grade Cacao. Then we will set sail on two incredibly deep and uplifting waves of inspired music from around the world for this really special new year’s eve celebration! We will share ceremonies to appreciate and integrate 2018 as well as setting intentions for 2019. After a good medicine dance we will meet the new year refreshed and clear.

Admission: £12-£15 .

Arrive at 7pm to greet each other and to warm up. Wear loose comfortable clothing, bring a bottle of water and a blanket and a pen and paper is helpful for your personal notes.
When we dance we do so without words so we can be in moving meditation. Being conscious without drink or substances so we are clear and focussed. Fully present. We make memories to take forward with us in our journey in life.
We dance to free our body and self, while we move through a wave of music, as we ride the wave we relax feel good and let go and come to a peaceful stand still and finally chill out. Very often we come to creative realisations and everything falls into place as we move to amazing music together and receive our dance as we wind down and bring it all together as the dance comes to a close.
Trust your body and self, it all knows what to do as you naturally dance and move.
Just dance how ever you feel and move how you want to. You can’t get it wrong and your dance is perfect for you. Let the music resonate in you as it inspires and helps you release and express your feelings.

Indigo Latto has been facilitating conscious ecstatic dance classes in Narberth and Cardigan and workshops at camps and festivals. Dancing at conscious dance classes and workshops most weeks for 20 years. Including 5 Rhythms, Biodanza, and many other forms of dance. Dancing passionately since 16 when I discovered free dance at raves. Regularly dancing 12 hours just using his own energy. He has been a DJ for 30 years with a passionate love of music which touches your heart and soul.
Helen Pattinson is a Dancing Freedom conscious dance teacher all the way from Canada and has been dancing since she was five years old. Although – who knows – those wiggles in the womb may well have been dance moves. She studied classical ballet from age five to fifteen with dancers from the Royal Ballet School in London, UK. Discovering rock climbing in her early twenties opened up a new kind of ‘dancing on rock’, and later yoga entered her life – a rhythmic dance where movement is threaded on breath. Helen discovered Dancing Freedom in California and it has “literally exploded my life into dance and music!”
