Aligning with the moon
The moon is an ever present force of rhythm in our lives. During one full moon cycle we will take you through practical and effective ways to align with its changing nature, to both strengthen and empower yourself. The course will also allow you to understand the impact of the phases on our emotional, physical and mental selves.
The moon moves through a full cycle over approximately twenty-nine days. During this time we are able to feel its gravitational pull and our mind, body, emotion, sleep and energy are all impacted in some way. The moon pulls on our oceans to create tides, and also influences us, creating more subtle yet still vital rhythms. There are four main stages within the moon cycle, and altogether there are eight phases. Working with the phases of the moon is a practical way to become in flow with life. We can begin to work with the energy positively rather than out of sync with it. Knowing the stages that support new beginnings, creativity and celebration, and those that align with rest and release and cleansing can be very empowering. This course is suitable for both men and women.
You will receive a Personal Moon Overview, a page detailing the position of the Moon in your astrological chart and how this influences your emotional needs – what nourishes you, what delights you, and what fulfils you. You will discover the Moon’s phase at your birth and what this reveals for you in linking deeply to its cycle. This is put together by Helen Ward who is qualified in astrological studies.
You will receive four Moon Essence Blends, one to take at each key part of the Moon’s cycle: New Moon, Waxing Moon, Full Moon and Waning Moon. Essences are gently transforming energies made from flowers and other aspects of the natural world. Each blend will help you open up to the full potential of the lunar power on offer, and will encourage you to start understanding your own nature – your varying needs, your changing moods, your ebbs and flows – in a new way. These are produced by Helen Ward (Dip.International Federation of Vibrational Medicine & member of British Flower and Vibrational Essence Association).
