Spiritual narcissism – what is it really? From ‘everyday narcissism’ to cults

Dear friends

I am delighted that there has been so much interest in the next event coming up, and I am so grateful to my friend Bridget Woodward for joining forces with me on this one. Bridget is probably one of the best people I could get to speak about cults and the psychology behind our vulnerability to cults or cult-like behaviours, and you will see why in the description below. This talk is surely not one to be missed. Only parts of this talk will be recorded, so for the full experience please come and join us.

Spiritual narcissism – what is it really? From ‘everyday narcissism’ to cults
Tuesday 22nd October
7pm – 9.30pm

An evening talk in collaboration with wonderful guest speaker Bridget Woodward where we will take a deeper look at what narcissism really is, and how it can manifest in different ways on a spectrum from ‘everyday narcissism’ to the more extreme behaviours within a personality disorder. Drawing on elements from the extensive work of Dr Craig Malkin, lecturer in psychology at Harvard Medical School, I will give an overview of how we all exist on a spectrum of narcissism – from a deficit of it, to healthy narcissism to pathological narcissism. We will take a particular look at how narcissism can play out in spiritual contexts in a variety of ways, including the extreme end of the spectrum that is often seen in spiritual cults.

Bridget has a wealth of knowledge on this topic from her own experience of having been in a cult in London which was deeply challenging, but also from her subsequent healing process. She also has a deep understanding of psychology in general due to her work as a child counsellor, and can offer valuable insights into what can make us vulnerable to cults – or to unhealthy narcissistic dynamics in general. We will also have time for questions.

If you would like to come to this event please could you let me know in advance, ideally as soon as possible, thank you. To pre-book your space payments (£10) may be made through this PayPal link. Alternatively you are welcome to pay cash on the day. This talk will take place in Salisbury, for details of the venue please contact meI look forward to seeing you there!

On a different note, many of you know or have heard of my friend Janet Treloar who channels Zac (the ascended master Djwal Khul). Janet is one of the top channellers in the world and she teaches some fantastic channelling workshops together with Zac. Channelling 1 is the foundation workshop which is open to anyone regardless of background or experience, indeed it is not unusual for a workshop participant to say “I don’t really know why I am here, I just felt drawn to come”. Janet’s workshops usually get fully booked in a few days or hours as they are so popular and many people come from abroad to participate in them. However, the next Channelling 1 workshop has availability (!) and is taking place Thursday 24th – Friday 25th October in Royal Wootton Bassett just outside Swindon. If you or someone you know would be interested or would like to know more please contact Janet directly on janet@planet-therapies.com. You can also read a description of Channelling 1 on her website here.

And then, all that is left is to leave you with a little message from my collective of spirit guides and helpers who write through me. Always remember you have a jewel inside you!

A Jewel Inside
There is a jewel inside every one of you. Let it shine.
It shines brightly, spreads love and beauty, light and warmth. Do not deny it its purpose, for you have come through in order to shine the light, guide the way, spread the love.
Be what you truly are; a star, a sparkle, a light in the world.

Many moons have passed in silence, now is the time to speak.
Fear nothing, we are with you, we hold and cherish you, love and treasure you. You are nurtured and protected, loved like a child. We care for you and wish to see you truly happy, fulfilled, spreading your wings and reaching far.  Go with the flow of life. Go with your heart, with us, with love.

VOTE on your favourites for future event topics!

Dear friends

It wasn’t long since my last newsletter but here we are already, well into the final quarter of this year and approaching the next decade at lightning speed. I am enjoying planning some fabulous new events for 2020 with absolutely brilliant guest speakers who I am thrilled to be able invite to Salisbury.

But I also want to hear from you what kind of themes and topics you are most interested in, so here is your chance to have a say on upcoming events! 

VOTE ON YOUR FAVOURITES

Below I have compiled a brief list of potential topics for you to vote on. Please contact me indicating the topics you would be interested in coming to hear about, but please feel free to add your own comments and suggestions too!

Healthy living in harmony with the Earth
Optimising health, harmony and resilience for people and planet by detoxing our living environment of harmful everyday chemicals, EMF exposure and toxic mould, and creating healthy homes, healthy families and a healthy Earth.

Making sense of the times we live in
Chaos, destruction, extremism and heightened conflict are escalating while at the same new voices, new ways and radical new ideas are emerging all around the globe. We are living in a time that will go down in history as one of the most important and transformative eras, but how can we best make sense of – and navigate – the tectonic shifts happening in our world, and perhaps in our personal lives, at this time?

Healthy boundaries
What does it really mean and how do we develop healthy boundaries? How can we find a harmonious balance in our relationship with ourself and with others?

Sacred rage – constructive anger
How can we work with the emotions of anger and rage in healthy and constructive ways, and allow this fire energy to become a driver for positive change in our life and in the world? (I gave a talk about Sacred Rage earlier this year which I have been asked to do more of so here is your chance to vote for another talk on this subject)

Co-creating with the divine
What does this mean? How do I combine my free will and my ability to create my future with surrendering to the divine? Is there a divine plan for my life, and if so how much power do I have to influence or embody it?

Guided meditations
If you would be interested in more guided meditations like the one coming up this Saturday (see below) please let me know.

Live channelling
‘Open mic’ for the divine to work through me in whatever way they choose – speaking, channelling energy or soul languages / sounding. We never know what might happen at these events but they always feel beautiful and sacred.

Any other themes or topics you would be interested in that relate to these categories?
Spiritual / energy work / channelling / mysticism & esoteric knowledge
Health
Personal development and motivation
Business and leadership
Society

Please specify any particular areas of interest…

I look forward to hearing your thoughts, comments and ideas!

And finally, don’t forget we have a beautiful guided meditation coming up this Saturday and a talk about Spiritual Narcissism on the 22nd Oct which I highly recommend! Please read more below.
