Embracing the shadow in relationships

and unleashing your creative light

London Hampstead NW3

Hidden from your awareness, the shadow is not part of your conscious self-image. The Shadow represents the unconscious, repressed, undeveloped and denied. These are dark rejected aspects of our being as well as light; there is positive undeveloped potential in the Shadow. It is always with us, and holds so much of our life energy. When the full extent of the shadow is revealed, it can be quite a shock.

The weekend will help you to gain insight into the shadow and explore it in depth whilst learning to integrate it in a helpful manner. Love is a powerful force that inevitably brings to the surface the parts of ourselves that we desperately try to keep hidden. Many people blame relationship problems on a lack of love, the other person not ‘being enough’. In truth it is the challenge of being close and loving in a relationship that uncovers the difficulty. A close relationship is a powerful light, and like any strong light it casts a large shadow. When you stand in the light of a close relationship, you will encounter the shadow.

Healing The Heart Retreat

6th – 13th September 2018

Portugal

Compassion is the highest expression of humanity.

Join me on this very special week away marking ten years of Living from The Heart

Living from the heart involves Communicating your truth from a place of authenticity, compassion and love, resulting in relationships that are satisfying. When you access your authentic voice you live your synchro-destiny and fulfil your life purpose.

You will practice finding stillness in each day of mind and body. You will learn to
listen to your body’s wisdom by becoming still, not ruminating about the past,or projecting yourself into the future. Often people carry pain and trauma in their hearts that need to be released and healed.

The heart is the core of your being and the seat of your soul. The heart is the source of your ability to give and receive love, as well as the repository of your deepest creative powers and intuition.

  • Were you encouraged to express your truth?
  • Were you allowed to follow your dreams?
  • Were you told what to do and how to be?
  • Were your interests supported?
  • Were you pushed into certain activities?
  • Were you taught that speaking the truth was important even if it meant offending someone in some way?
  • Were you taught the ‘Disease to Please’ to keep peace and order?
Booking FormAisha will guide you in a unique process to identify, transform, and release memories and beliefs and become aware of how these patterns may be still present today in a way that is unhelpful and at the root of many emotional difficulties.

Aisha works intuitively and uses a range of Mind and Body techniques that have been honed over time to help you heal you heart.

The Art of Intimacy

Exploring ways of Relating

London Hampstead NW3

The process of being in a relationship can be a sacred journey, a powerful path of awakening, accelerating our growth. Walking this path can deepen the souls capacity for compassion, and the hearts capacity for embracing love. It can be a catalyst for discovering our true essence, moving us towards wholeness and transformation. When we ‘fall in love’ our deepest need to be seen and understood is awoken. We can learn to understand loves’ cycles of giving and receiving. The closer we come to another, the better we come to know ourselves.
Intimacy is the essence of love and friendship. It is a closeness of sharing and understanding, of knowing and seeing another person and being known and seen by them. Most people don’t know how to be, how to accept and embrace what is. The capacity for intimacy requires a certain confidence and trust in others. In this workshop, you will learn how intimacy is a way of expressing the privilege and gift of giving and receiving.
We are not taught how to be in healthy relationships and this can cause pain and suffering. Often the way people deal with pain is to remove the stimulus and blame it on the source.. the other person.
Much of the pain experienced not due to the action of others but on how you see the world. Issues that may surface around intimacy are;
Fear of being abandoned
Fear of being overwhelmed, – engulfed.
Rage about childhood violations,
A desire to be taken care of completely by another person
Hypersensitivity to criticism
On the weekend you will explore the above themes and
  • Learn ways to create the depths of intimacy you desire.
  • Learn to develop greater intimacy to enable richer friendships, warmer family dynamics, and depth in your closest relationships.
  • Learn to successfully to communicate your own desires
  • Explore power struggles
  • Make conscious choices and relationships
  • Learn to speak from the heart Express love and appreciation in ways that touch your partner’s heart
  • Create fun, romance, passion, and intimacy.
  • Rediscover the joy and spiritual potential of your relationship
  • Powerful communication methods to move from conflict, defensiveness and anger into loving connection
  • Mindfulness based practices to create and strengthen intimacy, love and compassion
  • Practice Yoga, Chi Kung and Meditation for an awakening and Rejuvenation.
Living from the Heart uses energy-based transformational psychotherapy combining breath work, energy work, yoga, and meditation. All Weekends are complete in themselves and form part of an ongoing process.
