“I am proposing that we re-conceive the dream. That we consider what would happen if security were not the point of our existence. That we find freedom, aliveness and power not from what contains, locates or protects us but from what dissolves, reveals and expands us.” Eve Ensler
Life is short, we all age, but few of us ever really mature into the grounded, evolved, open-minded/hearted people we came here to be. So why wait? Why not seek to be the very best you can, know yourself, be kind, loving, wise, to yourself, your partners, your lovers, your children, your friends etc. It’s what the world needs right now – mature adults running the show not kids and bullies still acting out in a playground. The more we get this, the less our kids will have to repeat such damaging behaviour,
So let’s turn self-consciousness away from being a spotlight on the superficial outerlayering of the body to the self-confidence of a light radiating from the body – that’s a huge shift of belief that instead of a transient light being directed at us by others, we are cultivating an ever-lasting light that shines from within.
Let’s change the trance we all live in at times, instead of it being so negative, let’s make it diviinly intuitive and full of bliss – a state of being where we learn to see life from that radiance – imagine the beauty of that!
When we talk of the erotic today, let’s have that speak of the life force of women and men freely expressing and shining their creative empowered energy in all it’s awesomeness. Women in particular need to learn to enjoy their physical and emotional strength as a united and collective revolution.
I am an alchemist, a generator, someone highly attuned to vibrational states and people’s emotional centres. When I connect, my mind becomes so clear I can literally point out what is missing, the thresholds you are failing to enter into and what you need to do to get back on track – some would call this intuitive wisdom for me it is about going beyond the noise of the mind and the stories we tell ourselves and diving deep into the subconscious where all the old imprints and dirty laundry lies. From there, from that truth we can shift and raise the vibration of our thoughts, words, deeds and actions and be of service to the world and less self-serving.
My work is dedicated to waking people up, increasing universal consciousness, true spiritual and psychological mind/heart evolution for all beings (not the whacky ‘candles and candles’ hippy-dippy ironically spiritually impoverished nonsense that is profligate across so many self-help books and yoga sites, or stuff that is rooted in some ancient dogmatic religious grouping). Moreover, to educate people to believe in themselves, to honour their feelings and to connect deeply to themselves and live from that sensuous, romantic empowered place and not look out and grip to others and situations to give that sense of home and belonging.
Home is the body, home is the heart, home is the quiet, curated, calm mind that has been trained to think high spacious expansive thoughts – no more no less. If we all aspired to this the world would be a lot healthier and happier.
Anyone and everyone can and does have a connection to the unseen world of energy and spirit, no one needs a middle man of some man-made god/deity to connect – that ability is a pure direct one – literally between you and the universe that you can find in one breath.
No one can do this work for you, there is no point in sitting deep in the depths of your story and drama and just talking and talking – that will just keep you locked in your story. And finally, let’s get really honest – a true spiritual or religious leader would have no followers because they would teach their community to grow up out of the child following a ‘parental’ dynamic ‘leader’ and would instead teach their members to mature into strong, powerful, self-confident, conscious, awake adults – which is what the world so badly needs right now.
I am someone who has studied the worlds of consciousness and energy for over 35 years – the planes between the physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual and I know beyond all doubt that whatever happens on one level will be having a vibrational impact on all the other layers (which is why so many one-sided segmented modalities fail to deliver).
My philosophy is simple – find the magic, the fun, be enthused with every ounce of passion and ecstatic delight for each moment passing through your fingertips. Never stop being adventurous, learn to see life through the eyes of the wizardry of your soul rather than your over-controlling head. Literally – you get the inside right and the outside will fall into place.
We live in a Western world overly identified with the male dynamic, busy-ness, goal-orientated, every moment planned, forward thinking, linear, mind/head over-ruling body/feelings. Are we really surprised to find so many infertility issues these days and stress levels at an all time high?
The methodology is mine – honed, crafted, woven, sculpted for the past 35 years – I’ve curated the practices that I know work and let go of the nonsense and ‘spiritual preciousness’ that comes with the rest. I will teach you what’s key, a fast track route to a euphoric creative way of living – to breathe in and exhale into the light and connect with the feminine energetic pulse – a healing realm for men and women.
In embodied movement, I will teach you to deeply connect to your body – to listen – the body is your home – the mind lives in this home – it’s a part of home (like your bedroom or lounge) but by no means is it all and that’s where we go wrong. The western world teaches us to over-rationalise and over-think things – it creates huge judgmental, critical inner voices that annihilate us and in that we are completely missing the ‘language’ and rich landscape of the heart and feeling – missing the juice of connection – feeling ourselves, feeling another deeply. Instead we live in these dry ice palaces of our minds trying to control things, staying separate from each other, yet so much of life is completely out of our control.
At first when you come to these sacred practices it’ll be over your head, you’ll over-think too much, you won’t get it, of course. We are conditioned that way. Taught to believe only what you see is real and that the unreal isn’t real. I can’t see the electricity running through my computer but it works. The body is the same – there’s an energy there you can’t see but it’s a place of beauty and awe where miracles unfold – just think of two people coming together in an ecstatic embrace and tell me that energy doesn’t exist!
We are all here as another’s teacher. The modality I use to connect people to their channel in group classes is embodied movement, breath work and deep trance relaxation – rooted in yoga but way beyond yoga. Each class and practice is unique, unpredictable and visionary. Equally, the time of day, the cycles of the seasons, the moon, the planets etc all have a bearing on the energetic that is created and the energy that is built and magnetised. The Ishy Shala and The Ishy World where I run my retreats are sanctums of light, sacred spaces and healing realms that build, as clients sometimes say to me: “This is my church – when I come here I feel like I’ve come home”.
Fitness and gyms can be rigid – their mentality seeks to strive, to overcome, to perfect the body – to whip it into some unnatural state of being – it works against the body, rather than with it – a lower grade energetic pulse based on the vibration of ‘be more/better’ – we spend so much of our days already pushing/striving why exhaust our nervous systems further? What I teach is more conscious, advanced – strengthening, toning, yes but you will also be channeling and clearing, receiving profound down-loads of self-acceptance, self-awareness, self-governance – integrated embodied states rather than fragmented “not perfect/less-than/not-enough” mentalities and ever more stressed nerves. Why? Forget the old way of the whipped up ‘ideal’ of what it has to look like, the shape it has to be, that’s learnt conditioning, creating rigid mindsets and feeds the critical inner voices that we all buy into where the light can’t get in which sets us free.
It’s simple, stress and unhappiness comes when we are overly living in our heads and thoughts, denying ourselves, our feelings, our bodies, our needs – sort these out and any desire to over-eat, over-drink, over indulge in anything just falls away – instead you’re living from a grounded moment by moment reality – how cool is that! In individual sessions I use other modalities of shadow work, hypnotherapy, naturopathic/nutritional pointers and channeled guidance.
Above all, I will help you to define your breath; stretch into all you are becoming; find the sacredness in each moment and resonate at a high level of being – literally a spiritually soul-led connected choreography between you and your god. I will take you on a journey – whether that be in my classes, in our private sessions or deeper still over a week-long retreat. I will make you fitter (on all levels), stronger (connected to the depths of your heart), more in-touch, more adaptable to life’s curve balls, more flexible: mentally, physically, emotionally, energetically and spiritually.
