Touching the Heart – How to Work, Rest & Play from the Heart

June 2 @ 10:30 am - 9:00 pm

Ann-Marie warmly invites you to join her for this innovative and inspiring day. This is a day to connect deeply to our hearts and recognise that to be truly in alignment to our passions, pleasure, joy, abundance, freedom, vitality, purpose and spirit we need to open our hearts and listen to its great wisdom and truth. As we get in touch with this well of love, so we can be present and alive enabling us to be our authentic self and enjoy all aspects and areas of our lives.

This new paradigm is reshaping how we live, how we work, how we love, how we play and how we are in the world. No more are we coming from lack, competition, blame, judgment, apology or limitation but from abundance, trust, acceptance, grace, expansion and utter joy. So let’s come together with an open heart and create heaven on earth – as we receive so shall we give and that is what the world needs to expand and thrive.

The day will comprise of  our key speakers sharing their hearts calling and inspiring you through their own experience of living from the heart. There will be time for questions and connection both with your speakers and with your fellow participants. After our dinner break we will come back to enjoy a sublime evening of music and meditation from Lucinda who will create a space of deep rest and acceptance. You will be held in love…….

“I want to tell you both how much I enjoyed the all-day workshop which you ran. It was very interesting and gave me an entirely new slant on relationships. Your presentations were stimulating and you encouraged people to participate, which they most certainly did. Both of you gave excellent presentations and the day just flew! What came through very clearly for me was your philosophies of life, strongly focused on forgiveness. I can highly recommend your workshops and know that whoever attends will come away having a deeper understanding of their relationships and how they can improve them.

Helen Thatcher and Chris Harris have worked together for several years. They are trained facilitators of Vital Development which is a well proven method of personal growth and transformation that incorporates dance, movement and exercises of conscious, healing touch. They have collaborated to run group workshops that result in participants improving their body image, increasing their vitality and gently releasing stuck emotions, all leading to a better global sense of well-being.

In addition, they both offer private Holding for Healing Cuddle sessions. During these one-2-one sessions they provide reassurance, kindness, touch and close physical contact in a non-sexual setting. They work at the pace of the client, enabling them to feel held, safe and valued. Touch is an important basic need that allows our brains produce more serotonin and oxytocin – natural chemicals make us calm and happy. As a client receiving the full attention and acceptance of Chris or Helen it can work wonders in relieving feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, loneliness or low-self esteem. Chris and Helen are both skilled and experienced in enabling clients to feel safe and supported so that a natural process of deep relaxation begins where the heart softly opens and more love flows into life.

“I enjoyed working with Chris and Helen greatly. The facilitation was excellent, respectful, thoughtful and soulful.  Their work helped me to connect to my real needs and desires by listening to my feelings.  I had the opportunity to notice what I really felt in my body and practice keeping my boundaries whilst interacting with others in a meaningful way.  This was a valuable experience. I left the workshop feeling more peaceful, nourished and energised.    Ralitsa Kirilova   Human Resources Consultant

Ann-Marie Marchant, your host, will be holding the space and will be sharing with you her passion for self love, self-acceptance and self-responsibility. Her gift it to bring people together to connect, accept and step forward in life with an open and loving heart. She will weave together a tapestry of insights, inspiration and inclusion, helping everyone present to remember the truth that is written in their hearts.

“I just wanted to say what an amazing day I had yesterday! I can’t tell you how fantastic it felt to be surrounded by everyone so full of love. It made me feel so safe in my ‘new’ space if that makes sense. Whereas previously I felt scared of the awakening I’ve been experiencing I finally no longer felt alone which was such a blessing. It was so reassuring and inspiring to listen to other peoples journeys. The whole day was incredibly free-ing and I didn’t feel self conscious at all. I truly felt I’d come home in the company of others who had experienced the same as me. A massive well done to you Ann-Marie for arranging it all and THANK YOU! I can’t tell you what it meant to me to be there.” Love and gratitude Brigette
