Have you noticed how easy it is to surrender to Life, people and experiences when they meet our expectations, wants or desires? But what about if your whole world was turned upside down at the tender age of 21 years of age by some crippling disease such as Rheumatoid arthritis. How easy would it be to sweetly surrender to that new normal? Laya Rocha and I will discuss her ten year plus journey with her diagnosis of Rheumatoid arthritis, since the age of 21, and how it became a gateway for her to have a 'mystical experience', as pure Love and Source energy lasting for two weeks, awakening Laya to her natural gift of singing and music. A gift that has taught her how to be in sweet surrender with the river of life wherever and however it is flowing.

When we heed the call and say Yes to live from the Truth of our hearts we accept the invitation to deeply relax. We reconnect to The Still small Voice within and awaken to the truth of our True Divine Nature. We return home to be the beautiful radiant Light, loving, wise, peaceful, unified, abundant, creative, expressions of the One Divine Love at play.
Through inquiry, reflection and demonstrations we will discuss the practices that cultivate and strengthen our hearts connection, our true place of Being, so as to get a deep embodied sense of what it looks like, feels like, speaks like and acts like when radiating the hearts song of Love, Joy, Peace, Beauty, Unity, Abundance and Freedom. These above qualities and values are some of the topics that we shall explore together so we can become an alchemical catalyst for awakening not only to our own Divine Nature but for evolving the collective consciousness of humanity.

In clearing these energies we're more able to allow Spirit to flow, bringing us inner peace, ease, grace, abundance, a higher vibration, health, wellbeing and more. Indigo's soul journey has brought many of life's toughest challenges and she brings these soul lessons to life and her work, knowing healing is the pathway to enlightenment of the soul. Trusting in Spirit has opened Indigo's intuition as guidance, feeling an incredible heart centred passion and undeniable calling to walk this path of Love & Light, to be in service to Spirit.

Carla van Raay
Carla van ray is the author of bestselling memoir 'God's Callgirl', who has now written a worthy sequel: 'Healing From Abuse A Practical Spiritual Guide. This small book encapsulates the learning of an entire lifetime about what heals our inner wounds and why a lot of therapy only works to an extent. Carla maintains that self-acceptance and self-love are big secrets not easily understood, integrated and practiced in reality, and this is what is offered to the reader. As abused persons, we learn to 'love the unlovable' because without that there is no ultimate healing. How to do that takes a spiritual approach. It is the Spirit Within each person, never extinguished, that has the power of unconditional love and total non-judgment. Carla's life was marred with abuse of all kinds, with a burden of guilt that few children need to carry, yet she managed to heal that. "It is a possibility for anyone", she maintains.

Lisa Raphael followed a mysterious call to Australia in her 80th year after spending more than half a century in the USA. Before she left, in order to be and be met totally in the present, she removed as many traces of her personal life as possible. She has no home base, does not drive and travels around Australia with everything she owns in one big suitcase. It is Lisa's understanding that what is within us has been present since before the Universe was created, that we are infinite. And that being and living true to that infinite essence within - our authentic Self - is all that is needed to transform the perceived reality that threatens to destroy the planet. For most of us, living true to that infinite inner essence involves releasing layer upon layer of adopted beliefs, habits, affiliations and alliances, as well as healing and letting go of emotional wounds. Lisa writes, "At Eighty One I am at one with all that was and will be...The NOW ITSELF..an unfolding unknown mystery" View Guest page

Laya Rocha, singer/songwriter, facilitator and devout student of life. Although she has been on the path of healing and self inquiry for over a decade, she once lived a very different life. After beginning her career as a primary school teacher, she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis at age 21, at which her life began to turn upside down. She quit teaching and went into a period of denial, until her body screamed louder. The stress was amplified after a relationship breakup which catapulted Laya into a sudden 'mystical experience' where she woke up out of a heavy fog, experiencing only pure Love and connection to Source, remaining there for 2 weeks. It was this taste of liberation that spurred her on to seek for Truth, and led her to music. She has recorded an album, travelled the world facilitating and inspiring Women to follow their Heart's song and co-facilitates with Caiseal Mor in the Dreaming Deep, a ceremony dedicated to awakening the dreamer within the dream.
