Beauty is a powerful tonic. It soothes us, enlivens us, and connects us to what is most deep and abiding in ourselves and the world. Indeed to experience beauty is to commune with the sacred.
Although ideas of what is beautiful differ across time and space, Beauty is venerated in all cultures. Far from being superficial and frivolous, beauty is our truest North and trustiest guide… So when we are feeling lost, we can turn to beauty to guide our way home.
‘Even, and perhaps especially, in the bleakest times, we can still discover and awaken beauty; these are precisely the times when we need it most.’ - John O'Donohue
In this workshop, we connect with beauty as a medicine and teacher on the nature of humanity, existence and the universe. We will look to the beautiful as a mirror, for what we find beautiful reflects something of our essence.. Beauty touches us somewhere deep inside, and what ravishes our senses tells the story of our love affair with life.
At the same time, the experience of beauty can be sublime - blowing us open and taking us far beyond ourselves… In this way, beauty is a gateway to the transcendent and the mystical - as Khalil Gibran writes, Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror...
Informed by Bonny’s practise as a psychosynthesis coach, this session will include meditation, reflection, discussion and intention setting to support you in creating more beauty in your life.
What people are saying:
“Bonny is an incredibly smart and intuitive coach with a multilayered approach, dancing between the worlds of classic psychology, mythic poetic symbology, and somatic experience with expert flair that results in a coaching that feels both grounded and mystical.” - Gaia Harvey Jackson
“The work we have done together has been life changing. Bonny’s playful and enlightening techniques of dealing with the different layers of my personality meant that even the dark, ugly traits became more approachable and I was able to understand and honour them. I now feel as though now I can deal with life and the many curve balls that it likes to throws with a calm, clear grounded sensibility.” - Zoe Wellman
“I feel a freedom that wasn’t there before. It’s still a work in progress, but the fact I can now catch my negative thought patterns and choose to change how I react is really powerful for me. This new perspective allows me to be more balanced which will ultimately let me live a fuller life.” - Jo Twyford
“Bonny reminded me of the necessity to let my desire be my north star. I now have a renewed sense of vitality, curiosity, and creativity. I was so ground down from day-to-day monotony, that I lost sight of the spice of life… Our sessions brought about a shift in my perception that I can only describe as volcanic. The thick, protective layer of muck I had unconsciously constructed to stifle my own desires began to crack and anger, lust, playfulness, creativity and passion erupted from deep within me… I'm now on the other side with a new light inside me and a clear vision towards the future.” - Erica Wolfe
