2020 is a year like no other, and there is no going back. We are being required to put our foot down on the pedal of inner transformation and that can intensify everything in our spectrum; including anxiety, fear and euphoria. You may find relationships ending, perspectives u-turning and a daily disco of fabness to fear, (and back again), your new reality. Whether we embrace the acceleration by donning our sequins and dancing (even if we haven't got the footwork down), or cling to the bar downing shots till the lights go on and we can all go home, is up to us.
I invite you to join me, (sequins optional), for a supported deep dive into yourself: looking at what no longer fits; making room for your expanded consciousness to grow. When we have the courage to drop out of our minds and sink into our hearts we can cultivate compassion, intuition, courage and wisdom, allowing us to reveal more of who we truly are. The time for living out limited versions of ourselves is drawing to a close, and the world is requiring more of us to move from lives motivated by fear to ones emanating love.
I gained more in 3 sessions than I gained in 3 years of therapy! You got to the root of the issues and I have been able to find the connection I was pining for. Since the 3 sessions I have made significant changes in my personal and professional life resulting in a life that is more balanced. Thank you Helen I believe your amazing work has given me the leaps I needed to learn to live again.
– Sabi C., Psychotherapist, Feedback on one-to-one sessions
Combining the liberating power of ceremonial grade cacao, Buddhist philosophy, channeled meditations, astrology, shamanic perspectives, practical life tips, tarot, sharing circles and journaling, Helen weaves together the most transformative and supportive tools in her cosmic kit across the six weeks helping you transition from head to heart centred living.
Each week will be focusing on a different major life theme, empowering you to use the end of 2020 to bring about the healing and transformation you need to enter 2021 and beyond enjoying every new tune the cosmos drops, and communing with the disco of life.
Every session was amazing in its own way, and so varied. I enjoyed every minute. The energy was so powerful; I really have found it life changing. I’m looking at life in a new light.
– Lindsey Johnston, Civil Servant, Feedback on Women's Retreat 2020
1st Constellation: Trust: You and the universe have your back
Deepening into trust of yourself, others and knowing the universe has your back. With all the fear we are being presented with on a daily basis it is easy to feel overwhelmed and anxious as to where we are heading, personally and collectively. However, once we fully understand that we are all co-creating this reality, we can deepen into a clearer understanding of how we experience life and trust in the process and what we are able to create.
2nd Constellation: Grief: going in and letting go
Looking at loss, endings and past traumas. We will only be connecting to events which you are ready to release. You can not rush your healing in these areas, but even when ready, sometimes we can hold ourselves back from moving on. This week will be a chance to liberate the parts of you that are yearning for renewal and new lease of life. You will be supported with letting go and releasing any shame and guilt associated with moving forward with your life.
3rd Constellation: Power, Strength, Resilience
Exploring our relationship with these energies: finding, feeling and reclaiming. This year the themes of power and freedom have impacted our lives in ways most of us have not experienced before. Most of us are still carrying an outdated perception of power instilled in us from the days of landowners, when we connect to what it means to us individually we can shift our life at it's very axis.
4th Constellation: Abundance: Giving and Receiving
This is a multifaceted subject, especially in Spiritual terms. We have the very real need for money in order to put food on our table, pay bills and our way in life. However, we also live in a culture of greed, fear of lack and where we are told our happiness lies outside of ourselves and they key to obtaining it is by purchasing one thing or another. This week we will be exploring perspectives: moving away from poverty consciousness and into a 5th dimensional understanding of flow, raising vibrations around giving and receiving and increasing our gratitude; gaining a deeper understanding our needs and desires, and what purpose they serve.
5th Constellation: Healing the body and your relationship with it
Weather due to physical illness, eating disorders or the media's insatiable depiction of the 'acceptable' view of the human form, very few people have a loving and nurturing relationship with their bodies. We will lessen our negative self talk, deepen into appreciation and learn to see and feel ourselves beyond societal programming and past experience.
6th Constellation: Love and Joy
Having strengthened ourselves by delving into some of the more uncomfortable aspects of our spectrum, we will be able to anchor more fully in the higher vibrations. We will culminate our time together with an unbridled appreciation of all we are. Sending love to the community we will have created, those we love and the world at large, leaving you powered and opened up to face the solstice and coming year with grounded confidence, clarity and vitality.
I have been to hundreds of ceremonies over the last 30 years of running a retreat centre. Helen's cacao ceremony in Ibiza really was one of the most beautiful and heartfelt ceremonies I have ever been a part of. I had profound realizations, felt a deep connection to my family and that was because of her heart, her knowledge, her light and the beautiful and safe space she created!

To make the most of the process and deepen the transformation we will be working ceremonial grade cacao each week, this is not compulsory but is encouraged. If you have none at home please feel free to order in time to receive yours from Helen.
You will be sent a PDF with a recipe and instructions upon joining. The ceremonial grade cacao is ethically produced and sustainably sourced from a small farming co-operative in the Peruvian Andes, they cultivate an ancient strain of the tree using permaculture principles.

Helen is an intuitive, facilitator and spiritual guide for people who are looking for more magic in life and a deeper connection with their true selves; moving from head to heart-centred living. Her ceremonial work is soon to be featured on the Discovery Network in January 2021.
"I work with cacao as a way to allow people to quieten their minds and sink into their hearts; to connect to their authentic power, creativity and connection to All. When we begin operating from our hearts, the shifts can be huge. Ceremonial circles are created for people to connect to their hearts and strengthen the unity of being human, release pain and limitations, and rediscover their inner passion, compassion, wisdom and clarity.
I combine the psychological insight and empathy gained as an actress over 19 years, 12 years as a freelance communications coach and facilitator in the business world, intuitive insight and compassion developed along my life's eventful journey, with my Buddhist practice and shamanic training with the universes' healing gifts,. My personal tool kit allows me to bring something of value which suits the needs of each unique constellation.
I offer a space to guide and support you with tools, techniques and some universal magic to reconnect to your heart, and have the courage to put into action it's teachings."

"But it is the heart that determines, fundamentally, whether we are happy. It is our heart that moves and motivates others at the deepest level. The ultimate force for victory is the heart. To correctly guide and master our hearts, refine and polish them, enlighten elevate and fortify them, we need to merge them with the great law of the universe"~Daisaku Ikeda
