A Tantric approach to Life Counselling and Relationship Harmony
Established in 2006
Welcome to our last Newsletter for 2017.
The silly season is here and for many people 2017 has been a challenging and revealing year which if we choose to look at it from a positive perspective, leads us that little bit further along the path of self-realization. As this year comes to a close, it is important to reflect on this as the month of December can be very hectic and astrally stimulating especially whilst making preparations for the Christmas break. It is the end of the year and people are tired, people are overwhelmed, so it is important to notice this and take time out and nurture you more than ever this month to avoid over doing it and then perhaps finding yourself in debt, over eating, over indulging and being triggered by family dynamics. Balance is the key and mindfulness, to relax, slow down, enjoy the festive celebrations and not get caught up in unnecessary stress.
As this year comes to an end, I would like to thank all of our clients, students, practitioners and associates for all of your love and support. It is and continues to be a joy dedicating my life to this philosophy, so much so that I am looking forward to another wonderful action packed 2018 (It will be 15 years since the Sanctuary was first founded) in the spirit of giving and sharing the gift of Tantra and Sacred Love.
Next year we have some fantastic Workshops, Trainings and New Retreats on offer. So please be sure to check out our yearly timetable below to take advantage of our EARLY BIRD SPECIALS.
In other news I am very close to launching two books that have taken me what feels like eons to complete. The wonderful Clare from the publishing company Creatavision has been working long and tirelessly on my Women's Book. Here is a sneak preview of the other one.
Last but not least I would like to wish everyone a joyful, safe, loving and relaxing Christmas and a Spiritually Prosperous New Year.
In Tantric Love, Catherine xox
We will be closed Christmas and Boxing Day and open throughout the Christmas and New Year holiday period.

This is a story about Stone Soup, there are many variations on the story of stone soup, but they all involve a traveller coming into a town beset by famine.
The inhabitants try to discourage the traveller from staying, fearing he wants them to give him food. They tell him in no uncertain terms that there is no food anywhere to be found. The traveller explains that he doesn't need any food and that, in fact, he was planning to make a soup to share with all of them.
The villagers watched suspiciously as he builds a fire and fills a cauldron with water. With great ceremony, he pulls a stone from a bag, dropping the stone into the pot of water. He sniffs the brew extravagantly and exclaims how delicious stone soup is. As the villagers begin to show interest, he mentions how good the soup would be with just a little cabbage in it. A villager brings out a cabbage to share. This episode repeats itself until the soup has cabbage, carrots, onions and beets, indeed a substantial soup that feeds everyone in the village.
This story addresses the human tendency to hoard in times of deprivation. When resources are scarce, we pull back and put all of our energy into self-preservation. We isolate ourselves and shut out others.
As the story of stone soup reveals, in doing so, we often deprive ourselves and everyone else of a feast. This metaphor plays out beyond the realm of food. We hoard ideas, love and energy thinking we will be richer if we keep them to ourselves, when in truth we make the world, ourselves, poorer whenever we greedily stockpile our reserves.
The traveller was able to see that the villagers were holding back and he had the genius to draw them out and inspire them to give, thus creating a spread that none of them could have created alone.
Are you like one of the villagers, holding back? If you come forward and share your gifts you will inspire others to do the same. The reward is a banquet that can nourish many.
