DAN & SARA
BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL
Dan & Sara will take us into an embodied exploration of our perceived separation.
The mind is designed to split and divide, to like and dislike, to have wants and needs.
It will try to do everything it can, to not be separate, to simply belong. However, from the level of the dualistic mind, this is never possible. In order to be in right relationship with ourselves, others and the world around us we have to realise our true identity. Which is beyond anything the mind can comprehend. To realise this, is to realise what we’ve always been, we’ve just forgotten.
This workshop facilitates a process of natural remembrance. Back into our true identity, where there is no separation, there is no self and no other, there is no good and there is no evil.

THE HUMAN BIOFIELD
(aka THE HUMAN AURA)
With a background in Human Genetics and Molecular Pathology Biomedical Science, as well as 10 years of experience as a Public Health Professional, the truth-seeker within led me to keep pushing the boundaries of understanding by de-programming the constructs I stepped into.
Another name for your aura, is the human biofield, which is a torus-shaped electromagnetic field, emanated from our hearts, that extend about six feet beyond your body. This field stores crucial information about our life experiences and determines both how we experience the world and what experiences we pull into our lives.
Understanding your own biofield and how to intentionally change it will empower you to address any patterns you are stuck in, bringing us into greater harmony, allowing us to flow through life with more ease, greater joy, better health and overall wellbeing.
In this workshop you will:
• Learn about your biofield, what it is made of and how it influences our lives.
• Watch live demonstrations on finding the edge of your aura and and learn how to manipulate and control your own energy field.
• Learn how to become aware of two key energy centres outside of your body, with live demonstrations on how to adjust them.
• Experience an activation of these two key energy centres, to feel more grounded and centred.
