What do we offer?
We offer teachings in the Medicine Wheel at our base in West Wales and will also travel to other areas both in the UK and abroad.
We work with the 5 different aspects of the Human: spirit, body knowing, emotions, heart-mind and soul. The intention is to enable a closer knowing of self, of individual gifts and wisdom, and the transformation and healing of limiting or destructive patterns. The teachings of the wheels allow each person to work at their own level but also to share in the group experience. We always work in ceremony, where Spirit can move, bringing an extraordinary unfolding in which we come to see ourselves and the world around us anew.
You can also stay on holiday Retreat here in West Wales, which is suitable for individuals or small groups.
Jan also offers one to one sessions in person and telephone consultations.
What are Spirit Matters?
We are not just the substance of our bodies.
Our human spirit enlivens us and infuses us with creativity and passion. Our soul is the bridge of connection between our many lives, carrying an essence of experience and wisdom and giving our lives direction and purpose. Within our core essence is the seed of potential for the deepest joy, the expansive stillness that overflows with compassion and love. Spirit, soul and core essence cannot be measured or weighed, yet each affects us in every moment, informing and shaping our experiences.
Just as we have an indwelling spirit, so does everything around us - trees, stones, animals, mountains, lakes, the sky....
This understanding was held for millennia, but in the present age, animals have become commodities lacking sentience and soul; mountains are mineral wealth to be crushed and sold rather than revered.
Spirit Matters are matters of the spirit, the non-physical aspects of our own lives and the world around us.
When our spirit lacks nourishment, we are forever hungry, consuming but never dissatisfied. Our earth's resources are finite and precious; we are not her only inhabitants. Spirit matters today more than ever...when our spirit is nourished, nurtured and given space, we naturally feel happier and kinder, and care more for the world around us.
Awakening the Spirit
Spirit Matters Today
For indigenous people, Spirit is central to life. Rather than being a New Age concept, it is an Old Age experience. Beneath the layers that separate us from the natural world and our own extraordinary Spirit essence, is indigenous mind. This part of us remembers the connection we once felt with the world around us, and knows that relationship to land and all its inhabitants is essential for our well-being and survival. We remember the bondings once known with animal clans and the power of plants to heal. We remember the wisdom of stone people, the love of our Ancestors, and the joy of the Elements.
This website is a new venture for us and is a work in progress!
Gradually we will add articles of interest, artwork, an e-book of blessings for all occasions, and practices for you to try that will support your awakening of Spirit. We will also be providing links to other sites of interest and developing a Facebook Site, and more interactive formats so that you can ask questions.
Our aim is to inspire and support you to nurture the precious gift of Spirit within an around you!
