11.00 - 12.00pm The Path of Merlin: From Madman to Magician with Dr Alan Jones
Perhaps the most iconic of our own mythic characters. It has been said that there is more historical evidence for the existence of Merlin than there is
for that of King Arthur.

We will hear a translation of the oldest poem written in the Cornish Language, the original of which has long been out of pubic circulation.
This poem features Merlin and reminds us that he is not only important in Welsh Mythology, but as a key figure within Celtic Myth-tory.
We can use some of the ideas that can be created from the history and myth of this remarkable person, to inform our lives and the way we live them.
Alan set up the Fellowship of Merlin last year as a group from which the modern Merlins could be inspired to come forth and bring a service to their

1.30 - 2.30pm BREATHWORK IS THE NEW YOGA! an Introduction to Transformational Breath® with Julie Ann Horrox
Were you aware that 90% of all the pain we experience is down to trapped emotions?
This emotional baggage stays with us and disrupts our lives, causing disease and self-sabotage.
We hold our breath because it stops the painful feelings, but only temporarily, life inevitably brings more pain and the suppression of these emotions leads to Anxiety, Addictions, Stress, Burnout, Depression
Transformational Breath® is extremely efficient at clearing blocked energy from Body and Psyche, setting us free, to reach our full potential, and to be more successful at whatever we do.
You can join me to discover………
What is Transformational Breath®? How does it works? What it can do for you? What are the 100’s of benefits? These questions and more will be answered in this informative and fun taster workshop. There will be a short breath meditation, a demonstration showing you exactly what to expect in a Transformational Breath® session, and a 10-minute taster session.
You will gain insight into how your unique breathing pattern is effecting the way that you live your life, and how you can become more successful at whatever you do with better breathing.

Hi, I'm Alison, a mixed media artist and healer. Some of you know me for my aYa Headz of Dreadz but I am also a therapist and have walked the shamanic pathway for many years.
Soul Spirit Doll is looking at different aspects and connecting pieces of the jigsaw to create a more fuller, whole picture. A Soul Card is used as a doorway into the non physical realms and can be followed by dreamstates, dance and shamanic journeying. The teachings and wisdoms learnt from the process are then infused by creating a Soul Spirit Doll.
I hope to share with you how dance/movement and shamanism has helped to heal my wounds and both these aspects will be introduced in my workshop. You can follow my process @ www.facebook.com/SoulSpiritDoll

1.30 - 2.30pm Healthy Hormones through Every Stage of Life with Rebecca Jones
Do you suffer with PMT / PMS around that time of the month? Have you been diagnosed with PCOS or Endometriosis, or is fertility holding you back from having a family? Throughout every stage in life our hormones are working to keep us in balance – even in Menopause, which can be a huge transition for many women.
Through this workshop we will look at the reasons why some of these symptoms arise and what you can do to bring more balance. Our hormones are affected by many factors - through your teens, 20’s, 30’s and more.... heavier periods, changing moods, pain, foggy brain.
Often many women just think this is normal and you just have to get through it! But from a functional nutrition perspective it is down to certain deficiencies and insufficient detoxification.
Come and listen as I walk through some of the foods that can support hormones and clear detoxification pathways. As well as supplemental additions and lifestyle factors that can help shift you back into a healthier happier state!
I am a qualified Natural Nutritionist and a Certified GAP’s Practitioner. I currently work in private practise consulting & supporting clients around the world with their dietary needs, supporting and coaching them to see improvements in their overall health through diet and detoxification practices.
I used to have many health issues but then I discovered that so many of them were related to the foods that I eat and how toxic my body had become. I used self-discovery at first, just using books and other information I could find and was amazed at the changes in myself. Then in 2007, I studied Nutrition at College and here I expanded my knowledge and understood many techniques to help people regain their health and life through food.
With nutrition, you never stop learning – it is and will always be a lifelong passion of mine!
