What we're about

For those of us who have dealt with some seriously troubling times we usually emerge wanting to have deeper, richer, more meaningful connections not just with ourselves but also with others. Because connection is truly what makes life worth living and provides us the feedback of who we are at our deepest core as people.Yes we can be happy in our own company, but human beings are social at nature. We require connection to keep us healthy in the most basic sense of the word.

Do you struggle to find people that like you, want a connection that is nurturing and satisfying? Are you caught in a cycle of meeting people that want superficial, transient relationships? Do you feel invisible?Like no one truly sees you or understands you for who you really are?Is one of your goals for the year to be attracting various types of relationships that finally allows you to feel truly seen, heard,validated and acknowledged? Well look no further...  
This group was set up for those searching for their soul tribe.
If you are someone that has been told all your life that
•you are too intense
•you feel too much/are too much
•you are too sensitive
•you take things too personally, etc...
Then this group is for you, because within the group you will find people like you, that want that deep, intense connection with like minded others.
Most of us have a deep desire to care for people and to be cared for. It is our most innate longing to be loved and to love, to have secure relationships that are based on trust and that feel comfortable. One of the most profound ways to truly receive this is to learn how to give it first and then with the right type of people, the cycle will begin and will flow more naturally with less effort. When we learn how to give, we learn how to receive, and then we will open the door to the affection we hope for.

Among the many issues the group will be touching on is:
•Loneliness and why some of us struggle to find that deep connection with others in a society that is geared for instant gratification, short attention spans and alot of outer distraction in the form of social media and other pursuits that don't leave us feeling connected in a manner that is satisfying.
•We will also be exploring ways to get to live out our soul's need for expression, (otherwise known as finding meaning and purpose) as well as 
•Discovering what it is about each and everyone one of us that makes us completely unique and how to be able to share that gift with others and in doing so,enrich their lives too. 
•Learning to finally and genuinely learn to love oneself and feel worthy of giving and receiving love. 
•How to have satisfying intimacy in various types of relationship from platonic to romantic. Finally understand what are your own individual blocks that keep you from being real and vulnerable with others and so claim the intimacy you long for and need to nurture your soul.  

This group is for people who want more from life and relationships than what society expect us to have. If you always wanted to wake up every morning feeling vibrant and excited for no reason other than the joy of being alive and the fact that life has meaning, purpose and connection but could never manage to make that happen, then this group was put together just for you! 

Free to attend social IRL and online events will be arranged, as well as a variety of various IRL and online workshop events(paid ticketed events) designed to connect us to ourselves and others. The golden rule for all events scheduled is that when we get together, we engage in meaningful ways, talking about what really matters to us. We cut through the pleasantries and superficial small talk and we CONNECT at a deeper level. 

So my invitation to you is simple: come as you are, with or without the labels societies imposes on you if you do not fit in as expected.Because in the group you will be embraced for all you are in all your beautiful, stunning complexities. My aim is to provide the space for us all to see each other as human beings with all the imperfection this involves, because the true gift in what it means to be human is the ability to deeply connect and embrace our fragility, and that of others. 

Please be aware that this group or any workshops offered were not set up to be a replacement for psychological trauma diagnosis or treatment. As the group is for adults, I will accept that you are responsible and practice self care and so are able to know when you are triggered, ungrounded and know how to deal with that. If this is not the case and a concern to you, then I would advise that this is not a group for you. I will, as ever, be as careful as I can be, in delivering my content, but I cannot account in group settings for individual sensitivities and triggers.

ABOUT:
My name is Lucia I am known as Lou. I am a Healer, a Mastery Facilitator, Life Strategist, Professional Stress Management Consultant and trained as a Life Coach Practitioner. My approach is rooted in more deep dive coaching approaches around mindset shifting and (energy) healing. I use a variety of modalities to help people heal themselves in creative ways. I set up this group because I genuinely wanted to offer not just my skills as far as my training is concerned but most importantly my life experience.

For me what really matters is getting to the root cause of what is really going on through building on fundamentals that involve radical self love, forgiveness, acceptance and compassion. What I offer is a more bespoke process, working with clients with several modalities to help them unlock their own dynamic and creative solutions within themselves.

I have been on a healing journey myself having lived with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)for many years undiagnosed until a few years back, when I was finally diagnosed and started therapy. Therapy made me feel worse. In the middle of my therapy journey I got diagnosed with Leukemia and what followed was several gruelling months of chemotherapy. I am thankfully now in cancer remission and fully recovered from PTSD. It was my determination and willingness to heal and thrive from what felt like a life sentence of a chronic mental health condition and a serious physical illness that led me to heal and thrive and do the work I am doing now: helping others to access their own healing abilities and not just overcome and heal but thrive too. I have always been someone that tried out various modalities (from Energy Healing to Neuroscience)at different points of my recovery and I use this same approach in my coaching practice too. I work with clients that are looking for a different approach to healing themselves. Many that are in therapy work with me alongside therapy to boost and supplement their inner work and for those that choose not to be in therapy, my approach offers a lifeline of accessing untapped potentialities.

My passion in life is to help people who are serious about making make real, permanent changes and help them get to the heart of their issues by following the path of effortless flow with life in a more creative way. The result is an embodiment of wholeness, joy, vibrancy and aliveness in their lives. I believe EVERYONE is creative however each of us accesses our creative processes in very different and unique ways. But it is with creativity, and using the imagination, the body and all our senses that makes healing and growth possible and fun!

Women's Sacred Healing Sharing Circle.

Needs a location

For centuries women have been coming together to celebrate the highs of life, commemorate the low ones, and generally strengthen the bonds of sisterhood through conversation and shared experiences.

But as society has become more fragmented, and the pace and demands of life have become ever more hectic, it’s increasingly harder for women from all walks and stages of life to converge and share a space where they can grow and learn together.

This monthly online event for June is a sacred space for women to be able to talk about and share what is on their mind with other women within the healing sharing circle.

WHAT IS A SACRED HEALING SHARING CIRCLE?
A women’s sacred healing sharing circle is essentially a safe space where women of all ages can come to share their life stories, express their full gamut of emotions, embrace the ‘divine femininity", set positive intentions, and harness the collective power of a group of like-minded individuals who are attuned to their need for connection and, in some cases, healing.
The only requirements are to:
•Speak from the Heart
•Listen with Compassion

BENEFITS OF ATTENDING:
As a Healer/Life Coach Practitioner, I will be facilitating this non judgemental, online safe space for adult female only attendees of all ages to:
•Share and talk about whatever is on our mind.
•Emotional healing and release. During each monthly session I will be focusing on one emotion to release and heal. So everyone attending gets access to healing as well.
•This year we have all been working on making one goal happen that has eluded us in the past. Each time we come together we do so to support each other in reaching those goals.
•We bring to the circle what we currently have to celebrate and also what we have that we find is painful for us.

While this women's only circle is and will remain free to attend, the only requirement to be part of this amazingly connected circle is that participants need to be able to appear and speak on camera.

RSVP NOW TO TAKE PART IN THIS FREE ONLINE DISCUSSION...
•RSVPs close on the day, just before the event starts. This event is free and will be run online via Zoom. The link will be visible to access the event after RSVPing, and only on the day of the event after 7am. If you would like to receive a log in reminder message on the day, please RSVP before 7am on the day of the event. I do not provide last minute requests for log in details, so if you want to join after RSVPs close please RSVP for the next event. I advertise my online events on other platforms so the attendance number on here is not indicative of how many people will be attending the event.

Hygge Chats by the Fireplace:Deep,Intelligent Chats with people worldwide!

Hello there!
It's time to Hygge(pronounced HOO-gah).Hygge is a Danish way of life and it's about the cosiness of the soul: Imagine an intimate setting of a group of friends sitting around a fireplace,having a cuppa while engaging in scintillating conversations..this is what Hygge Chats is all about!

Run fortnightly on a Sunday for men and women of all ages who want to connect with others with similar and different beliefs, religions, cultures, races etc.. anywhere in the world.(This is not guaranteed: it depends on who attends).

Join in to discuss topics with a mindset of curiosity, wholeheartedness, and listening to understand rather than to respond.The intention is to create a community of people who love talking about wonder, mystery, and what it means to be human.

This group is not being run with an agenda to peddle any specific political etc.. dogma/interest. It is just a collective of people that are willing to have thoughtful, meaningful discussions about life's big questions. If you like discussing philosophy, psychology, science, history, current events etc... and enjoy having your ideas challenged/respectfully disagreed with, this is the place for you. In other words, we all recognize that we are all still learning. This is a space for freedom of thought and exploration of ideas, meaning, growth and deeper understanding. So laughter, a sense of humour and respectfulness is a must! Any subjects welcome:you are invited to come prepared with at least 1 question/conversation starter.

THE BENEFITS OF ATTENDING:
•CONNECTION: Create a connection with others. In addition to the convos, feel free to reach out to others via Chat to stay in touch/exchange contact details.(be mindful of others' right not to reciprocate).
•MENTAL STIMULATION AND NOVELTY: Learn something new, expand your horizons, have aha moments! Explore possibilities, learn to think outside the box! An effort is made to keep sessions interesting and to introduce novelty.
•FUN/CREATIVITY/LAUGHTER: Have fun, a laugh and express your creative streak through the sharing of whatever moves you.
•DIVERSITY OF OPINIONS AND WAYS OF COMMUNICATING:
Exchange views, share ideas and challenge your thinking/beliefs. Diversity of opinion/values is important because the goal is not conformity of opinion but rather free and open inquiry. It’s healthy to hear and engage with ideas we don’t agree with.
•AUTHENTICITY AND AWARENESS: This group is for adults only. While I endeavour to run the group as safely as possible, all activities are undertaken entirely at the participant's own risk. By taking part, each participant accepts full responsibility for their own emotional and mental safety and well-being.Please be mindful when contributing in the conversations to keep contributions authentic, honest, short/succinct so as to allow others to engage too. This is not a platform for monologues, to vent/rant, to sell anything (ideologies etc..)to preach or talk at others, or give advise etc..Please come to the space undistracted and focus on engaging and understanding others and come with a mindset of enquiry and curiosity. Asking thoughtful questions fosters this.Becoming aware of your own reactions and how you're feeling creates a deeper awareness for yourself.

Barefoot in the Park Connecting Touch Group@Carshalton/Ecology Centre

Needs a location

£10.00

With the weather becoming warmer, I will be running these Connecting Touch Group sessions/events fairly regularly. These will be held each time at different Parks/Forests/Woods or Gardens in/around London. If you are an adult man or woman, single or in a relationship, seeking human touch in your life, you are invited to come along and do the Connecting Touch Session barefoot in the park and connect fully with nature and others. The health and wellbeing benefits of being barefoot in nature while getting your touch needs are plentiful.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A GROUP SESSION:
We will be meeting at Greyhound Hotel (outside seating area) in Carshalton High Street for intros, to have a bite to eat and/or something to drink and just have a chat and get to know each other a bit better. Whatever you choose to eat and/or drink will be paid separately by each attendee. After that we proceed to take a walk through the local park and then do the Connecting Touch session outdoors at the Sutton Ecology Centre. See YouTube video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kE3P9OurUJM

To start there will be an introduction explaining and then showing the process. We will then be working in rotating pairs to start the practical work of Connecting Touch. Attendees will be paired with others from the opposite sex and/or their own gender. This depends on who turns up and the numbers. So please be aware that you could be doing Connecting Touch with someone of the same sex or someone of the opposite sex. Connecting Touch is platonic touch and the process is about learning to touch in a healthy, boundaried manner via light touch that allows for the nervous system to co-regulate. At the same time speaking to the other person in a way that allows each to feel seen and heard.

WHAT IS CONNECTING TOUCH?
Connecting Touch is a Neuroscience/Energy Healing approach that allows those lacking in being touched to experience safe, boundaried touch one on one with another person(s) to get their touch needs met in a platonic, non sexual way.

BENEFITS OF ATTENDING:
One of the most important parts of human heritage is the need for physical contact. Feeling touch starved is very real and can have profound consequences on our wellbeing. “Skin Hunger,” is a deep longing and aching desire for physical contact with another person, and this is not always sexual. The hormone Oxytocin is another benefit of physical touch or acts of cuddling, hugs etc.... Oxytocin helps humans connect to others and promotes feel-good sensations that foster a sense of well-being and happiness.
•Connect with like minded people: get your touch needs met.
•Calm down your nervous system.
•Feel rejuvenated and connected in nature.
•Expand trust.
•Boost immune system and lower blood pressure.
•Improves sleep.
•Learn to ask permission to touch the other in a way that feels safe to them and honours them.
•Learn how to listen to our bodies and how they react when we are touched in a manner that makes us feel fully seen and accepted.
•Learn how how to be fully present to one self and another.

The touch and communication done and learnt in a Connecting Touch session will enhance and deepen connection with others. So join in this outdoor event and reconnect with nature, yourself and others and heal your bodies, minds and souls!
