WELCOME TO OUR VIRTUAL RETREAT
Put some time aside for yourself. We believe that self care is imperative, not only to sustaining ourselves but for us to be able to put our best selves forward.
If you are unable to visit us in person, we have created virtual retreat experiences for you enjoy. It is also a great way to get to know our crew a little more.
Find yourself a comfortable position and allow yourself to heal in any way you need. Please ensure you are not operating any machinery whilst listening to any of these meditations.
NEW! Web of life meditation with Beccy
At this time when we are unable to gather together in circle, this beautiful light-filled meditation is a gift to us all. Make yourself comfortable and settle in to this uplifting exploration of connection.
NEW! Tapping meditation for letting go
Join Emma on a beautifully relaxing meditation and tapping practice. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) can support you to find holistic wellbeing by addressing your energetic body and release blockages in your meridians.
NEW! Forest bathing meditation with Katie
Katie is a true lover of the outdoors and uses nature as a tool for healing and wellness. As we journey through the year, there maybe times when we find that we are spending less and less time outside. Staying in touch with nature and being outside in the fresh, wholesome air has many healing benefits for the body, mind and soul.
Even when its raining, it can make us feel so much better to spend even just a few minutes breathing with nature. Make time for yourself to explore some outdoor space. Feel your feet on the ground. Look at the details and patterns of the trees and plants. When we do this it sends calming messages to our brain and tells our whole self we are safe. Walking in the woods when it has rained or is damp has further benefits – the spores released into the air are great for our immune system. Our microbiome improves when being out in nature by giving those good bacteria buddies a little boost.
Please relax and enjoy this woodland walk and meditation and see if the next time you are out in nature, you can introduce some forest bathing tips of mindful walking.
NEW! Heart Opening yoga with Beccy
Beccy has been working on building a virtual community and we are thrilled to share that she now has her own app. I will be adding pieces here but if you wish to have access to this please let us know. It is free of charge. To access the app, please follow this link to Beccy website.
For the following meditation it may be useful to have a mat and anything to make you comfortable.
Meditation with Julie Cooper
Jules has been offering yoga, sound, meditation and holistic healing at The Acorn since opening our doors in 2017. She delivers sound baths and yoga classes as well as shamanic journeying.
Give yourself the time and space to listen to a beautiful heart opening meditation.
SOUND HEALING AND GONG THERAPY
Sound has been used as a tool for healing and relaxation for many, many years, originally dating back to early civilisations. The physical effect on blood cells in the body has been shown to give strength, whilst the mental impact is renowned for switching on deep relaxation and allowing the body time and space to heal itself.
Find yourself a space to lay down in full comfort and surrender yourself to the healing sounds.
TAPPING – EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE (EFT) WITH EMMA
Tapping is an amazing tool for releasing stress, trauma and tension from the mind and body. It is based on the use of the acupressure points and uses a gentle tapping technique to track the body’s energy lines.
Emma has created a beautiful video to guide you through a tapping session.
Heart meditation with Kay
We are blessed to have Kay Turner as part of the Acorn Crew. She is a Wellbeing Coach, Yin Yoga Teacher, a Trainer and Advanced Practitioner in Energy Medicine, Mysticism and Shamanic Healing.Kay will guide you through a beautiful meditation to activate your sacred heart.
DAOYIN TAO FACE WALK WITH SARAH
If you have been lucky enough to receive this beautiful face treatment with Sarah, then you may well be really missing it during this distancing time. Sarah has created a step by step video for you to enjoy some Daoyin Tao without leaving your home.
As Katie is encouraging all the crew to offer online sources, it is only fair that she too has been brave enough to share a little something…
Sound has always been a playful part of Katie’s life and since being involved in The Acorn, she has seen how it can support people with meditation.
Please enjoy the sounds of the drum and voice, allowing yourself to drift wherever the sounds take you. Trust in your own wisdom – deep healing awaits..
Medicinal Foraging with Natalia
The use of herbs and plants to treat ailments and support health has been a central part of holistic health for many years. Animals often self medicate by eating certain plants at certain times.
Natalia has brought her magic and wisdom to The Acorn and has been delivering inspiring herbal discovery classes for the past two years.
Natalia encourages self connection and a meditative approach to the use of herbs. In the following beautiful videos, she shows the power of these common path side plants and how easily they can be used in our lives.
Please always forage responsibly and be aware of the differences in the plants and your own response to them. if you are unsure of the identification, do not ever risk consuming it.
