Circle for Mamas – Babes in Arms Welcome (Pilot)
Giving birth and becoming a mama are momentous events. We often present a public face, yet behind that sits a far more complex range of thoughts and feelings that ebb and flow. We may feel joyous about our birth experience, or let down and regretful – or a confusing combination of both. We may feel great pride in ourselves, and overwhelming love when we look at our child. We may also struggle to bond instantly with our baby or feel guilty or ashamed about some of our responses to their cries. As we adapt to a new identity and a new body, we may feel sadness and loneliness. And we may experience tension within our relationships, and the frustration and anger this can trigger. In our circles, ALL thoughts and feelings are welcome. The safe space we create together will enable us to voice, process and integrate our experiences, freeing us up to be the best, most present mamas we can be.
We - Gem and Hannah - have created this pilot of 4 weekly circles to experiment with what works and what doesn't. We'd love you to be a part of them and to offer us your feedback so we can start hosting regular women's circles for mamas and mamas-to-be inspired by mamahood topics, nature's seasons and cycles, and whatever else calls to us all.
We will weave together a variety of elements from breathwork and sharing to movement and moon rituals, creating a safe container and helping us to tune into ourselves and our babies. What flows within this will be organic and co-created by the group. There’s likely to belly laughter, tears and everything in between. The topics we will cover over the 4 weeks are:
Week 1 (Wed 11th Mar, 1.30-3pm) - Your birth experience
Week 2 (Wed 18th Mar, 1.30-3pm) - How you feel about yourself
Week 3 (Wed 25th Mar, 1.30-3pm) - How you feel about your babe
Week 4 (Wed 1st Apr, 1.30-30pm) - Your relationships
Babes in arms are very, very welcome and will be an important part of the circle. As we become more present and relaxed in the circle, so too will your babe as their heart rate comes into coherence with yours.
Our intention is for you to leave each circle feeling seen, heard, valued, supported, uplifted and re-energised. Some of the practices that we share will additionally be resources that you can use at home to more deeply bond with your babe.
Clear Space Kirtan and Sound
with Katrina Surya Kalkwarf
Saturday 22nd February
A community event to come together and receive a relaxing sound experience followed by chanting mantras to music.
Mantra chanting is to repeat a word or set of words to connect with the divinity of the words and to ones self.
We sing in community to express “love” and feelings of connection and upliftment may be felt.
Katrina Surya Kalkwarf is the facilitator for this event and leads Kirtan and sound events. Her enthusiasm for creating community, helping all feel included and welcome and safe is her light path. She plays harmonium, shamanic and djembe drum for support and often writes her own music for the mantra. Trained in Sound Healing she invites you to relax for the first part, bring a wrap and cushion, lie down and receive the vibrations of Tibetan bowls, Koshi bells and other delightful sounds.
After deep relaxation we invite you sit with us in circle, listen to the harmonic, repetition melodies of the chants and join in when you feel called. Easy to follow, touching to the heart, we create a beautiful soundscape together.
Clearspace our regular venue is an old prayer space for the Quakers and the acoustics in the upper beamed room are Angelic. The room is warm, spacious and inviting.
Joined by Adele Preece from Mosley in Birmingham, a long time friend and Devotional Kirtan Sistar, we hold the space for you to sink deeper into your own inner connection through this meditation practice.
Adele Preece has been a devotee of Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi for 16 years, running monthly satsangs in Birmingham. Adele plays harmonium and enjoys singing devotional songs. She believes in shared musical experiences, and always connects with the assembled people, to make them feel very much a part of the group.
“I feel a ripple effect of Bhakti Energy is flowing across the lands and we are all connected to this unconditional love”. Jai Ma. -Surya 🌷🙏🏻❤️
If interested in being a guest at one of the monthly Kirtan slots please enquire privately.
Investment for this event is £12 or £10 plus a couple of tinned food donations to local food banks. No friend is turned away because of financial insecurity, please pay what you can.
You may pay on the day or PayPal “Friends and family” in U.K. Sterling to

Clinical Solution based Hypnotherapy
With Graham Ellis
Monday clinic 1.00-5.00pm
One-to-one clinical hypnotherapy and psychotherapy for children, teenagers and adults.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a simple but sophisticated approach to help you focus on the changes you want, rather than what you don’t want. Based on a modern understanding of how the brain works, it uses specialist techniques, the best procedures that science and research prescribe, to implement positive and lasting change.
And there's Quiet Mind Pilgrim one-to-one clinics and workshops: merging non-duality with hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, and over 25-plus-years' experience of the challenges on the path to what is.
I have over four years of experience as a full-time clinical hypnotherapist working with clients throughout the world and fifteen as an NHS healthcare professional before then, and I’m passionate about using hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, my experience and talent for inspiring others to help clients, young and not-so-young, make the changes they desire in life.
£60 per session.
