Raw food workshops
Our body multiplies cells all the time, but if our cells have addictive needs, habits, or any kind of sickness, those cells too will be copied creating a vicious cycle of unhealthy cells. Eating live Raw food (food in its natural state) we can restore our Mother cells, and from this if we keep eating raw food our body gradually heals itself. In these workshops Daniel will give you recipe ideas to make eating raw food interesting day in day out! To get more of an idea check: www.rawfoodchef.com

The ‘Gong Man’
The ‘Gong Man’ plays gongs, tibetan bowls and various other wierd and wonderful instruments with the purpose of creating a "sonic voyage" whilst his partner uses these vibrations to disperse healing energy. He utilises a special technique with the gongs, stroking rather than hitting them, which causes them to "sing". You will be sure to catch him in the Natural living area at sunset but he may surprise us with an impromptu performance at any other time of the day providing a beautiful sonic backdrop to your visit to the garden for example!
‘2012 – the Maya vision’
Authors and researchers Alloa and Mikhail guide you through the many prophecies from the people of the Americas who place importance upon the year 2012. There will be a focus upon what the Maya Elders themselves have told us will occur. Contrary to some predictions of doom and gloom ‘this could be a good time’ – say the Elders.
‘Living/building an intentional community’
34 years ago Mikhail co-founded an intentional rural community in Suffolk, U.K. Some fifty people still live there, practicing organic farming and sharing all resources. Solar heating, straw bale building, cheese-making, food preserving etc. feature in the aim of self-sufficiency. Non violent communication, consensus decision making, sharing skills, trading without money, and community building have lessons we can take into the wider community. For years Grandfather Mikhail and Alloa have been Andalucian representatives of the Findhorn Foundation (community), Scotland. In the presentation there will be time for questions – we are sure you will have many! (Grandfather Mikhail and Alloa)

Osteopathy recognises the importance of the link between the structure of the human body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on the body’s skeleton and joint function along with the underlying muscles, soft tissue and internal organs.
Osteopaths consider each person as an individual. Utilising a highly developed sense of touch, they identify problem areas of the body. Using gentle stretching and mobilising techniques as well as manipulating joints, an osteopath works with the body to create the perfect conditions to facilitate the healing process.
Treatment usually consists of a combination of soft-tissue releasing techniques, and some specific adjustments affecting joints and soft-tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments). Advice can also be given on self-help treatments. (Mark Shurey)
