2 & 3 December - Shamanic Workshop - UNSTICK YOUR LIFE with the magic of the Star Maiden's Circle with Leo Rutherford & Juanita Puddifoot at the Clophill Centre, Shefford Road, Clophill, Bedfordshire  MK45 8BT . 
*Are you in a stuck place in your life?
*Are there emotional hurts that still plague you from your past?
*Do old patterns of behaviour return and upset the life you are now seeking to create?
Star Maiden’s Circle  - This workshop will directly address these issues through the magical tool including other appropriate shamanic, therapeutic and ceremonial techniques. The Circle unravels our life issues, shows us the source of them and guides us to potent places where we can effect change. It shows how we tend to get caught in the powerlessness of chasing our own tail, our own limiting patterns and habits. It then challenges us to free ourselves from those old patterns and change our future. The work is powerful and touches the deep wounds within to bring insights and change. The Star Maiden’s Circle is the central circle of the Twenty Count and is the circle of human life and development. It is the work of the ‘South’ of the wheel, the waters, the past, memory, the inner child, the emotional body, the ally of trust and innocence and the enemy of fear. It is the foundational direction of our life journey and whatever we have not healed in our past will travel around our wheel with us and make itself known at most inopportune moments. We work with the power of the Star Maiden Circle and participants will experience its ability to transform buried energies. First you face each direction of the circle of your life to bring to consciousness the parts that need healing. Then a second time to find the health of each direction, your inner beauty, strengths and the potential to achieve mastery of your Self and create more of the life of your choice. Limited number of places (12) for those who wish to have personal time in the circle. We welcome others to join the outer circle who will gain much through the teaching sessions on the Medicine Wheel and witnessing the work. Venue: Clophill Centre, Shefford Road, Clophill, Bedfordshire, MK45 4BT.  Richarddiss1950@tiscali.co.uk / richard@clophillcentre.co.uk / 01525-861456 / 01525-862278.   Fee: £135 inner circle / outer circle £95.  Booking deposit £45.
