The Sports Ground, located in an opening in the Wood, provides a picturesque and rural backdrop, as well as top quality turf. There is an excellent playground, a renowned café, an information hut with booklets, newsletters and trail guides and well maintained toilet facilities.
We are going to have a wonderful chilled afternoon with time to bond, play, meditate and for the musicians amongst us Play Music, for the Singers amongst us Sing Songs, perhaps we can all find our voice, for some chanting :-)

Oh and last of all don't forget to bring a PICNIC and perhaps something to share too. We love to share :-)
Spiritual/Personal Development Book Swap 
Got any Spiritual/Personal Development books that are surplus to requirements ? Why not bring a book or two along and be part of our Book Swap. A great opportunity to share and swap a book that you have read or perhaps its one that is just not working for you.

Hippies Welcome :-)

URGENT Help Save this Calf. 8 days to Slaughter and you can help save him.



Only 9 days left to save this beautiful animal and your help will save many more in the future too.


I am sharing this like crazy, I so want to help save this calf. The people involved in this organisation are friends of my friend Stuart who I know from Gaunts House. 
This is really URGENT and if everyone could just give a few quid, I know we can do it but it needs us all to do just a little. What is a few quid worth to you, perhaps you can go without a  coffee today, thats a few quids worth. Come on PLEASE PLEASE help. We can do it TOGETHER.
Click here to DONATE

CalfSanctuary
Help us get this field, we are so close...Help us save the bullock who is destined for the meat industry, a lifelong friend for our much loved "Gevan"
We are a small family run unit working hard to make a difference. We run a vegan cafe and an online website to fund our sanctuary, with no outside help. 
We have raised 3,000 from other fundraising that has secured the deposit ( non refundable) but NEED your help before the dream field FOR the rescues slips away
We started this plea a few months ago simply because calfsanctuary is on rented land and we feel it is time to try and secure a permanent place where our rescues would be safe no matter what happened to us.
Our campaign was doing well and we had hoped to raise a good deposit by the end of the summer and have the seasons summer trading behind us to secure a small field.
The bank had verbally agreed figures for a loan and we were working towards that goal....However unexpectedly two things came up, a field at a great price and a new rescue that could be gevans soul mate for the rest of her days ( gevan is a highland cow that has a foot condition, that we rescued from slaughter last year)... 
My bank manager was on his holidays ( seems like they have more time off than they work lol ) So under pressure i secured the land with the funds raised so far in the form of a non refundable deposit.
The bank manager sadly will not up the overdraft for the shortfall, as they want me to commit to loans over longer time periods which involves getting valuations done and in my eyes wasting both time and money at our expence.
So there is a shortfall of around 3-4,000 then theres the moo cow rescue....But i have faith that TOGETHER we can make this dream come true.
If we can raise this money the land purchasde will go ahead and we will have an overdraft only on it which we will work like heck to clear...I am getting no younger and i want to know that calf rescues will be safe no matter if i leave this journey..
Calf has worked very hard and not only to we rescue these animals we use their stories told through us to help raise awareness.
PLEASE HELP US GET THIS DREAM....we have less than 21 days to complete.
Once we get near to this goal i will make calls to the bullock owners and secure his life also...
WE NEED YOUR HELP  http://www.gofundme.com/79mo9w

Please HELP and Share with those who can too. Just a few quid and we can do it. 9 Days ONLY 

Thank you beautiful people. Much Love XXX

LATEST URGENT UPDATE The past few months have...
LATEST URGENT UPDATE
The past few months have been pretty manic with so much going on, but here is a foreverfield update 
( A brief stoty for those who are not aware)
As many of you may know we started looking for a safe piece of land for calf rescues as we fear we may not get our contract renewed on our present home/land.
We approached the bank and got a verbal agreement.
A 4 acre field came to auction and i called the bank, the manager was on holiday ( arrrgggg)
So we went to the auction just to watch, however the land went for such a bargain price we bid and got the land.
A deposit of 2500 went down ( raised from cafe and online donations) which was non refundable.
We only need to up our overdraft another 5,000 along with every penny we could scrape together, thinking WOW its almost 20,000 less than what the bank agreed to lend me i will have no problem.
Sadly on the managers return he would not up my limit unless i agreed to get properties valued. Which to me was a total waste of time and money for the small raise i needed.
WE started this plea online and in our cafe and needed to raise 5,000 being the land shortfall.
Then out of the blue this boy appeared and gave us even more reason to get the field and also save his life and be a friend to our lonely gevan.
The totals raised to date
Go Fund Me ~1160 ( showing as 1300 but 150 of that was in last months total used for land deposit)
Safe land appeal ~ 240.00
One off donations via online and cafe ~ 1587.49
Cheques via cafe and online ~ 303.00
Raffles~ 133.00
Auctions 191.50
Carrie ~ loaned us 1000.00
Bringing the grandtotal to 4585.00..
Now heres where the hard part comes in...
THE SHORTFALL WE NEED TO RAISE FOR THE FIELD ~ £415.00
Then on top of that we NEED for the bullock...He will be sold as of body weight as if he were to be killed :0(
32 per kilo....His dead weight price will be 680.00 plus transport of £100 ~ 780.00
STILL TO RAISE 
£1195.00 in 10 DAYS
Please note we have used up all reserves and all savings to make this happen, so really do NEED your help to get to this goal now.
We SPEAK for the animals and if this comes off the land will be a FOREVER FIELD ~ a safe haven for calf rescues even after we have gone from this journey.
HELP build a dream that will live on for years to come.

Holistic Mind Body and Spirit Fayre in London Saturday 14th December - All proceeds to Philippine Disaster Appeal

London Venue needed urgently for our Holistic Xmas Fair in aid of Typhoon Haiyam Appeal



Hello Friends :-)

Urgent Help needed PLEASE  !!!

We are looking for a Centrally located London Venue for our Fundraising event supporting dec.org.uk Philippines Typhoon Appeal.

I am appealing for your help.

Can you help us ?

Do you know someone who can ?

9.8 million people have had their lives torn apart due to Typhoon Haiyan. They urgently need food, clean water & shelter.

I was watching TV which I don't do very often and the news was on. This man was in tears asking the world to come and help his people in the Philippines. I just knew I had to do something. I am out of work right now so my own donation was minimal. It struck me that I could do more by doing a fundraiser with my own group.

I then reached out to some people for fundraising ideas and leading on from that t then struck me that TOGETHER we can do so much more so here I am asking my spiritual friends to come together to make a DIFFERENCE.


How can you help ?

Looking for a Centrally located London venue for 14th or 15th December for a Holistic Xmas Fair. We have a budget of ZERO !!! Hence it needs to be donated !!! All proceeds to the Philippine Typhoon Appeal via the charity DEC (Disaster Emergency Committee). Our Fundraiser will be registered with them once we have our Venue !!!.

It is going to be an amazing day with lots of Holistic Therapies, Readings and depending on the space hopefully some workshops with everyone donating their time and services so all the proceeds can go to this very worthy and urgent appeal.

I do hope you can help us or perhaps you know someone who can ?

It will be fantastic if we can make this happen and raise some much needed money for a deserving cause.

Please contact me if you can help us.

Blessings :-)

Day trip to Glastonbury from London for Autumn Equinox 22 Sep 2013

London Spiritual Events and Socials & Spiritual Friends Days Out , Weekends Away and Retreats present to you a Day Trip to Glastonbury with Spiritual Friends
http://www.meetup.com/Spiritual-Friends-Days-Out-and-Weekends-Away/events/138889812/

Join us on a very Special Day Trip to Glastonbury to celebrate Autumn Equinox.
Please note Bookings for this Trip will only be open for the next 48 Hours !!!

Autumn Equinox 
The sun rises due east and sets due west and the light is equal to the dark. We begin to move into the twilight of the year and our lives. A time for harvest and making contribution It is a time of equal day and equal night, and for the moment nature is in balance.

It is a time to reap what you have sown, of giving thanks for the harvest and the bounty the Earth provides. For finishing up old projects and plans and planting the seeds for new enterprises or a change in lifestyle. Autumn Equinox - Mabon is a time of celebration and balance.

On The Day
We will visit The Chalice Well Gardens, Glastonbury Tor and for those of you who wish to visit Glastonbury Abbey, time permitting there may be an opportunity for that too. Entrance to The Abbey is £6.00 which is not included in the price of the Day Trip.
Free time and time to stop for lunch and refreshments. Time to mediate and chat with our new like-minded Spiritual Friends.
A Jam packed day amongst Spiritual Friends celebrating Autumn Equinox in Glastonbury ( Heart Chakra of The World ). It does not get any more special than that !!! 
The Chalice Well and Red Spring
The Chalice Well is among the best known and most loved holy wells in Britain. Many legends are attributed to its chalybeate waters, which flow ceaselessly at a steady rate and temperature that never varies. Not least among these is that they represent the blood of Christ miraculously springing forth from the ground when Joseph of Arimathea buried or washed the cup used at the Last Supper. For others the waters are acknowledged as the essence of life, the gift from Mother Earth to sustain its living forms and so a continuous spring like Chalice Well is a direct expression of an unbounded life force. 
Chalice Well is a World Peace Garden. A place of peace and tranquility for those of all faiths and none. These festivals are grounded in common principles; welcome, stillness, silence, reflection, grace, communion, community, relationship, celebration, gratitude and blessing. That people gather together, not in a formalised building or structure of worship, but in a beautiful garden, allows a shared acknowledgement of the sacred and divine that transcends borders and differences. 
The Well water is believed to possess healing properties. This belief can be traced back to the sixteenth-century.  
The White Spring 
Glastonbury was once an island and water rises and falls from it’s heart in profusion. Full of mystery and symbolism, two springs rise within feet of each other at the base of the Tor - the holy hill of Avalon. One, tasting sweet with calcium, leaves a white trail. The other, tasting metallic with iron, leaves its mark in red. We sought to create a Temple here in honour of the Spirit of the White Spring. The White Spring water flows through it, as does the Ley Line known as the Michael line. Cavernous and set apart, in blackness or candle lit, mysterious it remains. A stark contrast to the wonderful gardens of Chalice Well of the Red Spring. 
Photo below is one I took of Chalice Well Celebrations for Winter Solstice 2012 

Glastonbury Tor 
Prominent hill overlooking the Isle of Avalon, Glastonbury and Somerset 
This iconic and evocative landmark offers magnificent views of the Somerset Levels, Dorset, Wiltshire and Wales.
Steeped in history and legend, excavations at the top of the Tor have revealed the plans of two superimposed churches of St Michael, of which only a 15th-century tower remains.
Glastonbury Tor also has a grisly past. Abbot Richard Whiting was executed here in 1549 on the orders of Thomas Cromwell, the first Earl of Essex.
Glastonbury Tor is known as being one of the most spiritual sites in the country. Its pagan beliefs are still very much celebrated. It’s a beautiful place to walk, unwind and relax.
Another one of my photos of Glastonbury Tor

This has got to be the most amazing picture I have ever seen of Glasto Tor. Not one of mine though !!! Super Moon :-)


Glastonbury Abbey (optional time permitting during Free Time) 
£6.00 Entrance Fee
The Abbey is set in 37 acres of beautifully peaceful parkland in the centre of the ancient market town of Glastonbury. It is traditionally the first Christian sanctuary in Great Britain, visited, so legend has it, by Joseph of Arimathea and Saints David & Patrick. Many believe that the Holy Thorn tree that can be seen in the grounds originated from Joseph of Arimathea's staff and others are convinced that King Arthur was buried in the Abbey beside his lovely wife Queen Guinevere. Whatever one believes the facts are that the ruins are unique, the grounds provide a spot of peace and tranquility in an otherwise hectic world, and if the weather is poor there is the new Visitor's Centre with award winning Museum which includes a model of the Abbey as it might have looked in 1539, together with a display of the Town, a children's Display and the magnificent 16th century Othery Cope. 
Itinerary  
Meet at the pick up point at 8.15 for a coach departure at 8.30 A.M. Please aim to arrive early as the coach will be leaving on time.
10.30 am approx arrival in Glastonbury where we will be dropped off by our coach for the day. You will need to take your belongings with your as we will not have access to the coach until pick up time.
We will make our way to The Chalice Well Gardens for the Wheel of the Year Festival - Autumn Equinox Meditation. 
There is FREE Admission to the Gardens until 12pm.
For those of you BRAVE enough to stand in the Healing Pool (my favourite spot) you can join me for this 'must have' experience. The pool which has a constant temperature of VERY COLD !!! but well worth the experience.
We can purchase Refreshments at the Chalice Well.  
We will leave The Chalice Well at an agreed time and head for The White Spring together.
We will then head into the town together. There will be an opportunity for some Free time in the town where we can have a wander around the shops, perhaps visit The Abbey and stop for lunch.  We will split into smaller groups for this and have a meeting point and time.
Next on the agenda is a wonderful walk up to Glastonbury Tor where we can join in with the celebrations for Autumn Equinox. We can gather as a group and enjoy a meditation together and spend some time absorbing the wonderful energies of The Tor.
Some more free time to spend as we wish in the area before meeting at 5pm for a group sharing then we will head to the departure point for our trip back to London.
6.00pm We leave Glastonbury for our journey home to our departure point in Central London. 
There will be many opportunities throughout the day to connect with one another and during the Free Times you are welcome to join me if you wish. No-one will be left alone unless they wish to have some Alone Time.
What to Bring
Be Sure to bring a bottle to fill with the magical waters of The Chalice Well. We will visit both the Red Springs and the White Springs. I prefer to mix my water with both waters. 
If you wish to dip your feet in the Chalice Well Healing Pool, you may wish to bring a small towel to dry your feet.
Bring appropriate clothing for the day. Rain or Shine as well as comfortable walking boots or shoes.
Enough money for food and refreshments and a bit of retail therapy !!! There are some fantastic book shops and New Age type shops in the town. If you love Crystals then you will be in Crystal Heaven.
Payments 
All payments are to be made online via PayPal in full if you decide to RSVP (you will be taken to the payments page after you RSVP). 
Please note you do not have to have a Paypal account to pay via Paypal. If you do not have a Paypal account, choose the option to 'pay with a debit or credit card' and fill in your card details, address, email etc as directed by the screen. 
Please 'click here' to view an organisers meetup group set-up with instructions and screenshots on how to pay without a Paypal account.
Payments are non-refundable unless the trip is cancelled or rescheduled. We hope members will understand that if we provided one person with a refund then every person would be entitled to a refund. If we allowed that to happen then we would risk losing the substantial amount we have already paid for the whole trip.
it would not be possible to plan trips of this scale without an organisation fee included in the price. Therefore, included in the cost of £34 will be a contribution to myself for organising the trip. 
If you have any other questions at all , please contact me.
Places will be limited and bookings must be made and paid for by 13th September. We will require a minimum of 25 bookings in order for this trip to go ahead so please please book as soon as you can. In the event that this event is cancelled by me, a full refund will be made without delay !!!

About Us

I am a trained Reiki and Spiritual Healer,  having followed a spiritual path for most of my life. 

I have also sat in a few spiritual development and mediation circles.

I have been running several groups on Facebook to help connect people interested in Reiki and Energy Healing and Spiritual Development.

I originally started the Facebook groups as I was very aware that many people on a Spiritual Path did not have the support of their friends and/or family and are in desperate need for help on this journey. The internet is a great tool for connecting like-minded people via Social Networks such as Facebook.

I now realise that it is time to take the next step on this journey and that is to create a physical community of like-minded Spiritual Friends where we can support one another, laugh, play, share and learn together.

Our first Spiritual Social  Gathering is in London on 14th July 2013. We are having a Spiritual Picnic. The event is completely FREE of charge and all you need to bring is yourself, a big smile of course and something to munch on (picnic). 

Do come along to our picnic , enjoy great conversations and meet new friends Click here to RSVP for our Picnic

We are brand new and exciting Spiritual Group in London.  It is our dream to create a real Authentic Heart Centred group where everyone is welcome, welcomed, valued and respected. We value your ideas and input to help us all create a special community.

For more information it is free to join us at http://www.meetup.com/London-Spiritual-Events/
where we will keep you informed on new events and gatherings. We also have a message board for discussions.

Love, Peace and Blessings
