Almost Imbolc

‘And the Seasons, they go round and round…’ Joni Mitchell

Here we are, the light is definitely returning, the birds are singing and chattering in their mad WAKE UP! song and we are reminded that new life is burgeoning. Imbolc, (February 2) the first stirrings of Spring.

This is announcement time, a traditional time in the Old Calendar where dedications and declarations of intent are made. Emerging from the blistering winter winds, the deep sleep of the dark, there are stirrings and efforts to reach up and forward into the newly emerging light.

So, in keeping with this time, I am announcing the commencement of two courses in the coming months.

Amidst the chaos of political, environmental and societal change uncertainty mounts, camps are chosen and some of us attempt to erect barricades. Astrology offers an opportunity to pull back from the binary of ‘us and them’ by illuminating and describing many, many different options for understanding and appreciation of ourselves and ‘the other’. Join us as we draw back the shade on an ancient language that offers insight, guidance and a glimpse at potential. Access the building blocks of ‘the long view’ and come to understand the perfection in every moment as it leads to the next.

No previous knowledge of astrology is required, a sense of humour and willingness to join in the conversation is a must!

One of my all time favourite series to share. Homoeopathy, even after almost 30 years of practice, is close to my heart. This introductory course is called Life’s Resource because as people with bodies, we are well advised to develop familiarity and awareness of the owner’s manual! Centred around 36 common first aid remedies, the series will also cover basic homoeopathic philosophy (WHY we prescribe remedies) and illustrate the use of remedies with genuine cases. The aim of the series is to enable you to feel confident to prescribe in acute situations. We’ll cover, headaches to hang-overs, fevers to injuries and common childhood ailments.

Offerings for Autumn

Stardust_artwork_Jul_2018The new season is upon us, and I will be offering We Are Stardust: An Introduction to Astrology series again. The last cycles of classes have yielded a growing interest in how to apply and further our understanding of astrology and to this end, there is a second series brewing that will take us beyond the basics. Come and explore the outer reaches of the solar system and see how it speaks to the inner reaches of your psyche and experience!

The classes are interactive and you are invited to share your experience and reflections.

They’re Here! They’re Here!

I’m delighted to announce that my Astrology Reading Gift Certificates have arrived! It never rains but it pours and dates and classes are rolling into view for the new year.

Uncertain times can leave us feeling a little wobbly… unsure about what comes next and how we can best rise to the challenges on the horizon. Often a chart reading can help us re-member our essential nature, where our talents lie and how to make the best of them. A new year often prompts us to reflect on what has been and speculate about what lies before us. While a reading does not predict or control the future, it can give us a unique glimpse into the energies at play and how best to navigate them. Tricky times are part of life, being reminded of the significance and value of them in a larger context can make it easier to move through them without collapsing into despair or fear. Cycles within cycles, endlessly re-inventing ourselves, opportunities to resolve old patterns and wounds, our unique birth chart offers a remarkable vantage point, enabling us to feel as though we can orient ourselves with the flow of life and to make the most of the life’s opportunities.

Gift certificates can be given and redeemed whenever the time feels right. An hour-long reading includes a copy of your birth chart and are available in person or by skype.  Contact me at: info@marlowpurves.net for more details.

Remedy Kit?!

Moving out for the first time?  Freedom, new friends, adventures, self-sufficiency, independence and experimenting with being YOU? (Oh… and classes, higher learning and new connections) You’ll have heard all the stuff about learning to cook, clean; doing it your own way, and fending for yourself. ‘The Introduction’ for moving to your new university life is full of how-to’s, resources and assurances that all you need can be accessed from your new location.

Your parents are concerned about whether you’ll eat more than one ‘real’ meal in the term and if you’ll sleep… ever again. What if you get sick? What if you have an accident? How will you cope? And stress, what about managing stress?

One thing that might be missing from your University Get Ready list is a remedy kit. A no-nonsense go-to option in the event of coughs, colds, the effects of late nights, hang overs, accidents, injuries, anxiety, gippy tummy or even just plain old homesickness.

Homoeopathy is a safe, effective and powerful ally whether you’re at home or away. It provides a gentle and proven alternative to conventional medicine with no conflict with other medications. Learning about remedies enables you to take care of your health in a way that ensures a richer experience of your new life.

Join me for an afternoon’s informal tour through the Basic 18 remedies that can support you through many first aid and acute situations. The afternoon will include a (very) brief introduction to homoeopathy, remedy indications with examples, what to expect from a remedy and when to seek help.

Where?      7 Shelford Road, Trumpington, Cambridge CB2 9LZ
When?       1-4pm Friday September 15, 2017
