What if I could show you simple techniques to help you remain more creative, peaceful and compassionate? Picture waking up each morning to your true desires with more clarity and confidence.... Just imagine being part of a community that sets aside 10mins of their day to:
Dance, Paint, Sing, Chant, Create and Meditate
Tools to develop more
compassion for self and others.
understand yourself and others more as you seek to relieve suffering.
These are unprecedented times and how we manage this pandemic is in our own mindsets and hands! We already know that regular meditation and mindfulness can help improve our mental and emotional wellbeing. Evidence shows that participating in a daily practice can improve sleep patterns, manage breathing and increase energy levels…AND YES, it’s been reported that group meditation can also decrease violence and enhance compassion and empathy.
I am a true believer in the impact of the arts on our health and wellbeing. Even the briefest time spent on a creative pastime such as painting, writing, pottery, dancing or playing the piano, has the power to enhance our wellbeing and aid transformation.
All this yummy research has made me wonder why more people aren’t structuring small wellbeing routines into their daily life. Then I has a lightbulb moment. It's because they probably just don't no how to OR they think they are doing it all wrong
I have created a a simple system where you can connect with your values and feelings, find balance in the things you are thinking , use creativity/mindfulness for inner peace and calm AND heal the world while you are doing it!
I woke up on the 12.12.12 and found that I had transformed into a frail insect like creature, I looked at my reflection and it screamed BURNT OUT!, I was tired, had stopped caring, and was feeling overwhelmed…I was desperate for something more!
I knew it was time to change and it was on that very night that I was invited to my first ever sound bath. It was the most phenomenal experience I had encountered and I wanted more! So I stepped right into those boots and set myself up for challenge. Within a week I had signed up to the British Academy of Sound Therapy. Within a year I had past with merits! (Huge deal for me since I basically failed at school and found out in my 20s that was dyslexic)
Since then Ive dedicated myself to improving my outlook on life, nurturing my self esteem, healing old wounds and reconnecting with my creative passions. All of which allows me to take up my space within the world.
I would love to say I've dedicated my life to all things spiritual and "clean". ..But that would be a lie...But hey I am not calling myself a guru and I believe I am a work in process.
l have learnt a variety of wellbeing tools to feel good, function well and create long lasting change and that's a great place to start. We often envy the talents and skills of others, but disregard the habits and dedication that they have put into their unique journeys.
I had to stretch from my comfort zone so I started saying YES to opportunities that scared the swizzle out of me. With a professional background in arts and community education, you can only imagine the joy when I was asked to deliver a soundscape at The Tate Britain.. Thats another joyous AH-AH moment that I will tell you about another time.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I've never done anything like this before but I have always wanted too. The experience you gave yesterday was incredibly restorative, moving and realised a lot. Wow. Thank you.
Thank you Nicola for the first time in about 4 weeks I have no pain in my shoulders or my neck, the stress has gone. Very powerful session. Loved it!
All of Nicola's workshops I have attended have been awesome. I have always left feeling so alive.
The women's drumming circle was an amazing experience. Nicola created a safe space within to explore a sense of wellbeing and creativity. The absence of correct and incorrect enabled a true libertarian from worry. I realised there was no worry about money or relationships during the entire workshop. Only a sense of freedom and a lifting of spirits.
Nicola thank you for this amazing experience this evening. I am feeling so relaxed , if anyone needs to switch off, you will certainly disconnect and feel your rhythm and groove.
Let's make that breakthrough together
The fastest 90 mins of my life. Totally relaxing, invigorating and meditative. I would highly recommend these session. it went beyond my expectations. Thank you Nicola Kelly. You have great energy
