PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN ALL AGES MEET . ALL WELCOME - MEMBERS FROM OTHER MEETUP GROUPS WILL BE ATTENDING (please arrive between 1.30pm and1.50pm ready to start at 2pm) If you are open to something a little different, this is for you. Enjoy the blend of fun, joy, and opening to love energy that we will create to enable us to raising our vibrations, creating more "feel good", giving us a natural ability to attract whatever we wish into our lives . Come willing to play too. Dance of the Heart is an uplifting blend of free expression dance with some relaxing moving meditation. As there are no steps to learn, it is ideal for everyone who want to benefit from dance, and believes “they can’t dance”, as well as those who can. It's a great way to connect too. A “Dance of the Heart” enthusiast shares what she most enjoys about it. “I love the freedom to be me, and to move without limitations. It’s so much fun: not only do I find my usual inhibitions are released, but I leave each session uplifted, energised and with my heart opened. I feel happy, relaxed and feel like I am falling in love with everyone! We have some beautiful feedback from previous Meet Up sessions http://www.meetup.com/londonspirituality/events/225735697/ and http://www.meetup.com/londonspirituality/events/227087531/ as well as from a Flying Solos session https://www.meetup.com/Flying-Solo-Events/events/231938874/ which you may find helpful to read. Other fans talk about the following benefits: • "It is so much fun. I feel so great. I find socialising after a Dance of the Heart session gets taken to a whole new level. It's amazing!" • “I feel so much more confident, more deeply connected with others and this impacts all my relationships” • “I used to judge myself and others. Now I do this less and less. Life is so much more fun” • “My health has improved so much” • “My stress levels have decreased, I feel so alive. I really feel I have "healed my heart"” • “Karen gently encouraged to expand my comfort zone and I find that so much more is possible now that I do” If you are ready to fall in love with life (or even with that special someone) “Dance of the Heart” may be the missing piece in the jigsaw for you. Whilst Karen's work has evolved to focus more on fun, joy and opening to love, the videos below will give you a flavour of her latest creation, Dance of the Heart. This has evolved from many years of teaching and leading Dance Meditation which included her teaching on BBC1’s Inside Out series where she showed 3.6 million viewers how Londoner’s can have fun without alcohol and on the BBC’s equivalent in South Korea as part of a documentary on dance in medicine. (If you scroll down the page, you can see an extract from both of these programmes) There are hundreds of different exercises included in Dance of the Heart. The video below for the South Koreans includes a version of an Indian Head Massage undertaken in a group. This exercise was included for the TV cameras and will not be part of this coming session. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8_VCbwabdI The video below for the BBC includes a slow motion exercise. This particular exercise will not be part of this coming session. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnJUHGHckYo Do come and give it a go. There are a maximum of 20 places for this session, so book now to ensure one has your name on it. Join Karen for this special session of Dance of the Heart. Stay on afterwards for tea and som socialisng. The price is £10 in advance (please pay in advance at the link below to secure one of these £10 spaces.

Dance of the Heart is a series of sessions. Whilst each is different, they all open the heart and bring participants uplifting experiences, fun, joy, feelings of love and more! Not only that, but the more you experience these feelings on the inside, the easier it is to attract whatever you wish into your life (relationships, work, money, ease and flow) Your Facilitator - Karen Skehel: Life and Love Coach As a life and love coach, Karen Skehel has been helping her clients meet their soul mates over more than 15 years. Whilst she is now in her 14th year of living with her own soul mate, she also knows how to successfully navigate the single scene having been single herself for seven years following her divorce. Karen has had many “claims to fame”. For example: She has coached on relationships in front of 1.5 million people on ITV's most popular day time programme, (The Trisha Show, ITV’s answer to Oprah) and has also appeared on ITV2. She also wrote for Natural Health Magazine as The Soul Doctor and The Life Coach over a four year period, contributing a page addressing readers' life challenges every month. She has also appeared on the BBC’s equivalent in South Korea teaching her Dance of the Heart as part of a documentary on dance as a healing too, alongside facilitators from all over the world. She has also taught a session for BBC1’s Inside Out series where she showed 3.6 million viewers how Londoner’s can have fun without alcohol. P.S. Karen is also offering a Free Relationship Readiness Test which will tell you whether you are ready now to “manifest your soul mate” or whether you have blocks and/or specific areas to focus on and what these areas are. You can take the test at http://www.theinnerspa.co.uk/manifestyoursoulmatedayretreats.php Having worked with hundreds of clients over the last 15 years, she has learnt a thing or two about what people want, what they need and what works. She blends her combination of skills to bring her clients experiences that are empowering, fun and life changing. You can find out more about the extensive nature of her work at www.wow-coaching.co.uk (http://www.wow-coaching.co.uk/) and coaching supervision at www.coachingsupervisor.co.uk (http://www.coachingsupervisor.co.uk/) Here is an opportunity to open to the healing power of love as well as heal any heartbreaks from past relationships of all kinds. Come willing to play too.
