GUEST Presenters:

Natalie Southgate – Chakra Dance 

Natalie will be facilitating our sacred dance night.

Natalie Southgate is the creator of Chakradance. She conceived of it and created it when living in London in 1998, and has been refining and growing it ever since. She is passionate about how dance, music, mandalas and the chakras can help people discover a deeper connection to their true selves, helping them find happier, more balanced lives.

As well as leading Chakradance, Natalie is a trained healer and psychotherapist, author, co-creator of Inamojo (Chakradance for children) and mother to two beautiful souls. She has run workshops at Deepak Chopra’s Center in California, led thousands through Chakradance at Doreen Virtue’s Angel Intuitive courses, and runs regular workshops across the world.

Natalie will be joining us to guide us through a 2 hour workshop from her new series called ‘Freedom’


Karim will be facilitating one on one healings, yoga and sacred ceremony. 

Karim is regarded across Australia as a gifted practitioner of bodywork and healing and for over 15 years has been offering a very deep level of presence, love and service..

He offers bodywork that is profoundly transformative and empowering within the physical, psycho-spiritual and transpersonal realms.

Karim is also a  qualified group facilitator and  trains and mentors many students in the healing arts


Jemma will be facilitating our sacred cacao ceremony 

“Cacao Spirit Medicina”with Jemma is a safe and gentle, yet deep and profoundly transformative healing journey. It’s very inclusive so even people that have no experience with ceremony feel very comfortable and welcome.

Together we work in Ceremony with the Spirit of the Cacao in deep honour and respect of all Ancient Traditions. Jemma is deeply reverent to the Wisdom of all Indigenous peoples from around the World, and especially works with the wisdom of Andean Path, the Cosmology of the Inca of Peru. She has extensive experience working with, facilitating and practising ritual and ceremony both here in Australia and across the world, and spends many months a year learning from her Maestros in Peru and taking guided groups on an annual Spiritual Pilgrimage into the Andes Mountains across the Winter Solstice.

Jemma feels that Ceremony is a Celebration of Life.  That our connection to the Earth, Each other and especially to ourselves is missing in our busy modern lives. Through cultivating a reverent and grateful connection to the Universal Beings and Pacha Mama that support us through Ceremony, we in turn become more in alignment with our true nature which is Infinite LOVE, JOY and FREEDOM.

This giving and receiving brings us to remembering that we are Powerful Beings of Light, Masterful Co Creators. And that when we liberate ourselves from anything that holds us back, we remember that we are Limitless! This is something many of us have forgotten and so gathering together in Community, Ceremony and Celebration (as our ancestors did and many indigenous nations still do) can help us to ‘wake up’ and remember the Truth of who we really are. Then, we are unstoppable!

The drinking of the Ceremonial Cacao and inviting in its Spirit, helps to facilitate the opening of the channels and energy centres in the body to deepen the process and allow us to ‘see’ what we need to see and empowers us to move forward creatively with change.
