A whole new decade confronts us in opportune ways! Be a Creator or a Victim of change?

The world over, astrologers and ascension teachers are speaking about 2020 as a major portal to our inner and outer revolution /evolution– one that breaks away from past patterns that entrap us in powerlessness, pain and a habitual way of life that often obstructs us from realising our highest potential and creations. Astrological shifts in 2020 and for the decade to come are forcing massive changes upon us whether we like it or not. We either choose to be Masters of change, or continue to let life happen to us as unconscious subjects. The choice is ours!

This workshop with extended meditation will guide each of us to be more aware of what needs to be released and changed starting in 2020 and continuing on for the years to come. With planets Pluto and Saturn conjunction on 12 January 2020, and their energies staying for the year, it is timely to ride this major astrological wave of deep transformation. Saturn requires breaking down old control structures, and enables a slow rebuild of life with new and stronger foundations; while Pluto is about deep psychological wounds and patterns that are ready to surface for acknowledgement, clearing and transformation. Will you choose to enter this portal of deep and long-lasting change prepared?

Many other astrological features are also happening at this time in January and in the months to come in 2020/2021 that are supporting the breaking away of old authority structures, and a restructuring of outer control and inner psychical structures. While this is not a workshop on astrology it is helpful to know what are the cosmic energies of the times and work with these big energies to liberate yourself from control patterns that keep you in 3D lower dimensional ways of living.

Choose to Step up to 2020… The workshop will be in two parts:
a) First to identify old patterns and mental-emotional structures that you need to release and transform; and

b) Second, with deep awareness and sound commitment we undergo a guided meditation to open ourselves to receive new supportive energies for change. These include the divine feminine energies of deep Receptivity and Connection to Source; Strength, Wisdom and Perseverance to see what needs to change and let them go; and deep Love of self, other and the planet for true change and long-term shift into 5D or a higher consciousness.

We will be supported by the divine energies of goddesses Durga/Sekhmet; goddesses Gaia/Demeter; goddesses Hathor/Aphrodite! The meditation will include an upgrade of the chakra system introducing the 13 chakra system. This will be done through new Light and Sound codes supported by my guides and higher Self.

FACILITATORS’ PROFILE


Suzanne and Ken Morgan are originally from UK and have been living happily in Penang for over 8 years. They were obviously destined to be together and met in India while doing a 6 month Yoga Teacher Training in 1998/99 in the Swami Gitananda lineage. In fact, before meeting, they already shared a great interest in health and alternative medicine, studying several systems between them.

After teaching yoga for a few years and both having curious minds, they decided to explore Chinese Medicine, completing a Bsc. (Hons) Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture) at Salford University, UK from 2003-6. They set up an acupuncture clinic which they ran before deciding to move to Malaysia. They both had an interest in Qigong, studying Wild Goose Qigong with Bingkun Hu from 2005-8 on his yearly visits to the UK, although Ken had been studying qigong since the 1970s.

Whilst in Penang, they were introduced to Zhineng Qigong and after two years of regular practice went in March 2019 to China and completed a 3 month Daohearts Teacher Training in the first, second and advanced levels of Zhineng Qigong. Suzanne and Ken are both passionate about health and wellness and are always happy to share their many years of knowledge with you.

Sarah-Joy Amin is a Transformation Teacher, Chakra Yoga instructor, Inner Dance facilitator and energy worker. Based in Penang, Sarah-Joy has been on the spiritual path for over 20 years, starting with Buddhism in the 1980s, then expanding into yogic practices and a Oneness approach to spirituality from 2010 onwards.

In 2013, Sarah-Joy sought out yoga and did her teacher training in the Chakra Yoga Tradition at the Pyramid Yoga school in Thailand (see http://www.pyramidyoga.com/aboutus/). She was introduced to yoga during her adolescent years and resumed her yoga practice in Jan 2010 after almost two decades of spinal injuries. In Dec. 2013, she also completed the 108 hour Yoga for Healers course deepening the healing aspect of her yoga practice. Her main teacher, David Goulet, studied under Swami Gitananda, in the same ashram as Ken and Suzanne Morgan!

Sarah-Joy offers private and group yoga classes, and is committed to yoga for she has seen how the practice has helped her through critical periods coping with physical injuries as well as healing deep emotional stresses. More recently, Sarah-Joy has embarked on further studies involving Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Krisztina Mezosi has been dancing various free form dance movement practices —5Rhythms, Movement Medicine, Soul Motion, DanceMandala, contact dance— throughout Europe and Asia for many years. Her emphasis is on how we can free our bodies to help free our minds and get in touch with expressing our inner spirit, through the language of dance. “When I dance my body becomes alive and I travel through different landscapes and emotions to unearth who I really am. I can start from where I am. I don’t need to change anything, to be someone else, to pretend. In the flow of dance I am just me.” K.M.

Holistic Counselling & Psychotherapy, Penang

Transformational Therapy with Sarah-Joy

I am delighted to now offer holistic counselling and psychotherapy services as part of a professional training programme with the Australia-based Metavision Institute Intern Clinic. This will complement the current transformative coaching and energy healing services I’ve been offering for the past five years. This article covers why and how holistic counselling and psychotherapy can help you, the nature of my service, the arrangements and offer for participating in the Metavision Intern Clinic, as well as a brief background about the school of psychotherapy I’m coming from.

Why consider holistic counselling & psychotherapy?

Everyone needs support at some point or another in their lives. Support can come in many ways through family, friends and the community. Sometimes, however, more informed, trained and objective support through holistic counselling, free from prejudices and judgements, can take you much further in healing, resolving or transforming a personal problem, family or relationship conflict or dilemma.

Furthermore, deep rooted patterns within your unconscious, often unknown to you, can also cause repeated mental and emotional stress. Or, you may seem to be attracting similar unwanted life situations and don’t know why. Here psychotherapy can help you become aware of the root causes of your problems and gain more clarity in addressing them.

Holistic counselling and therapy is an approach which helps clients heal by taking the entire human being and their experiences into consideration during assessment and treatment. It treats a person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs in an integrated way!

How can holistic counselling and psychotherapy help you?

Holistic therapy can help you with:

  • personal, family or work stresses;

  • relationship conflict with a family member, employer, colleague or friend;

  • a health or life challenge that may be creating mental and emotional anxiety, uncertainty and drains you of energy;

  • recurrent dreams, nightmares, childhood memories that may be disturbing and troubling and you would like to understand and resolve it;

  • a crossroad in life related to your job, marriage, work partnerships, moving or shifting residence or country, etc. – when you need to make a major decision that will have a long-term impact; and also

  • any spiritual experiences that may be confusing or even elating but you feel you need more clarity and guidance.

Through holistic counselling you will feel heard, acknowledged and supported.

Relevant guidance and tools will be offered to you where appropriate.

Through psychotherapy you will learn to develop increased personal awareness and better understand repressed thoughts, emotions, and experiences that may be negatively affecting your life. Understanding more about the unconscious parts of yourself is part of your journey to recovery.

Through the therapeutic process, you may discover appropriate solutions for yourself and learn to hear and trust your own intuitive guidance.

What can you expect from a therapy session with me?

Using the techniques of Holistic Counselling and Process Oriented Psychology (see below for description) I aim to support people from all walks of life regardless of race, religion, class, age, gender or sexual preference. All my sessions are totally respectful, caring of your needs, private and confidential. I abide by the Code of Ethics set out by the Psychotherapy and Counsellors Federation of Australia (PACFA) as well as the Malaysian Association of Psychotherapy (MPA).

My mission is to ensure that ALL clients are supported on a healing pathway that is personally uplifting and empowering to them! My motto is TRANSFORMING LIVES into Wellness, Freedom and Joy!

If you’re looking for a holistic, caring and intuitive approach to therapy then contact me for further information or to book a session.

How much is a session?

My rates for Transformative Coaching and general consultation is usually RM150 per hour. For the counselling and pscyhotherapy services as part of Metavision’s Intern clinic, I am offering a 30% discount or a package rate for several sessions. Students and those from lower income groups could be considered for a further reduction.

How to contact me? What days and times am I available during the week?

You can email, me at sarahjoyamin@gmail.com, send me an fb message via https://www.facebook.com/TransformingLivesPenang/ or whatsapp message or phonecall at 016-488 9328. I generally reply quite promptly but for longer emails or messages please allow a day or two latest especially over the weekend period.

I offer my services at The Space, 39-01 Lebuh Lembah Permai, Permai 32, Tanjung Bungah, Penang, Tel 012 447 0072 on Mondays 2-5pm and Fridays 1-4pm, or at my personal consultation space also in Tanjong Bungah on Monday, Tuesday and Friday mornings or Monday and Thursday evenings, as well as alternative Saturday afternoons, with the exception of public holidays. For specific times, this will be arranged by appointment.

What institutional basis supports the counselling and psychotherapy sessions?

My services are part of the Metavision Institute Intern Clinic. Metavision is an institute based in Bowral, Australia, offering graduate and post graduate professional training courses in Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy. Its methods are “rooted in conscious and spiritual awareness; while their teachings are geared towards mental wellbeing.” Furthermore, its focus “extends from healing despair to unleashing the power of human potential.

For more information about Metavision Institute, do check their website: https://metavision.com.au/courses/holistic-counselling-and-psychotherapy-course/

Transformative change for the body, soul and spirit, where inner change generates outer change.” Metavision Institute, Australia

How reliable is the service provided by the Metavision Intern Clinic?

Metavision is accredited by the Psychotherapy and Counsellors Federation of Australia (PACFA). It runs an Intern Clinic for professional students in the two year Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy Professional Training Programme, and includes serving clients such as yourself. This Clinic is overseen by Metavision’s professionally qualified staff and supervisors. Metavision also provides all clients who participate in the Intern Clinic with a counselling contract and feedback mechanism to contact the Institute should they have any questions and feedback about the therapy offered. Metavision has professional indemnity insurance coverage for all professional students in its programme.

What tradition of Psychotherapy is being offered?

The psychotherapy approach used here is called Process Oriented Psychology, also known as Process Work. This is a holistic psychotherapeutic approach which works on both the conscious and unconscious minds. Through working with the unconscious parts of you, deeper aspects not always obvious are revealed and brought into your awareness.

What is Process Oriented Psychology?

Process oriented psychology was developed in 1970s by Dr. Arnold Mindell, a physicist and psychologist. ”It is a trans-disciplinary approach that integrates principles from Jungian psychology, physics, and information theory”. It also draws from the wisdom and teachings of Buddhism, Taoism, and various indigenous traditions that recognise we all have underlying psychological patterns. These patterns influence our mental, emotional and physical states, and thereby our actions and personal and relationship experiences.

According to its founder, Dr. Mindell “Process oriented psychology uses awareness to track psychological and physical processes that illuminate and possibly resolve inner, relationship, team, and world issues.” [http://www.aamindell.net/process-work ]

If you are interested to learn more about Process Work and the Process Work Institute, see the following website: https://www.processwork.edu/

Today, process oriented psychology is a widely practiced and respected therapeutic approach. The International Association of Process Oriented Psychology (IAPOP) acts as the supervising body for training, accreditation, and certification worldwide.

TRANSFORMING THROUGH THE CHAKRAS…

is a holistic journey of inner and outer processes, reconnecting to Self more fully through more conscious yogic movements, mindful breathing and eating, meditation and connection to Nature!

Hickory on the Hill, Penang

In the 2.5 days together we will engage in:

* daily yoga – both gentle and active practices reflective of the various chakra energies;

* Different breathing exercises (pranayama) that help to relax and to activate your physical and energy system;

* conscious eating with healthy food and juices

* mindful walks, guided meditations, and relaxation;

* inner processes like inner dance and sacred movements;

* creative visualisation and visioning;

* quiet time and healing in lush nature!

 

CHAKRA ENERGY PROFILE

You will also each receive an Energy Profile review based on your birthdate following the Yantra Yoga system. This will help you understand your energy make up, and mental and emotional tendencies, so you can learn how best to respond to personal challenges and weaknesses and to build on your strengths. In addition, you will learn where you are in your life cycle following a 9 year numerological cycle. This helps balance your life purpose and actions according to a yin or yang year cycle, and living life with greater flow and ease!

YOGA is an ancient system of inner and outer practice for more balance in all aspects of life. It is a well tested tradition that provides an inner technology to recalibrate your physical, mental, emotional and energy bodies so you feel more complete as a Spiritual Being in a human body.

Use this retreat to renew, reset and re-energise from within, and learn a few techniques that you can also take home to continue your practice after the retreat.

A CHARMING VENUE

We have chosen a wonderful venue; an amazing Space in nature that is nurturing, peaceful and pleasing to all the senses with a wonderfully high vibration and life force to re-energise your whole Being.

TRANSPORT UP THE HILL

Jeep service up the hill to Hickory Bungalow will be organised for those wanting a jeep ride up and back down the hill. The cost of the whole jeep is RM200 both ways and will be an additional cost. Four to five persons can fit into the jeep depending on the amount of luggage so you can share out the cost of the jeep among yourselves. You will need to inform the organiser ahead of time if you wish to hire the jeep service so we can group people together at the same time. We will arrange for participants to meet at the Botanical Gardens Friday afternoon (time to be determined). The same will be arranged for the group at the end of the retreat to return on Sunday late afternoon or early evening.

If you prefer to take the funicular train up to Hickory Bungalow, you will need to get off at the Lower Tunnel Station and follow the sign for a 5 minute walk. Note that the trains can be busy during the weekends and potentially on a Friday afternoon given that Monday 21 Jan is a public holiday. Give yourself ample time to get the train up. It is advisable that you start your journey from the foot hill at least 2-3 hours before our meeting time at 5pm. All ticket purchases require proof of identification. 

 

 

LIVING IN A NEW EARTH – WAKE UP… THE TIME IS NOW!

LIVING IN A NEW EARTH

WAKE UP… THE TIME IS NOW!

I’m so excited to embark on a new project with my dear friend and soul sister, artist and soul activist, Jennifer Mourin, called LIVING IN A NEW EARTH! While the project is still in it’s infancy and still taking shape as a fetus morphs every day in its mother’s womb, so too is this project. Yet as I write up sections of the project content today I’m feeling a calling to share the early draft pieces. Inner guidance is telling me that it is not just the final product that will be of support and inspiration to people, but even the early etchings and ideas will be positive and helpful to those who will read and hear these words in the NOW! Hence my first contribution 

 

“WAKING UP”:

(Note the above image is a painting by Jennifer Mourin called THE RAPTURE, Mother Earth series)

The TIME IS NOW to Wake Up. Make a Change!

Wake up! The time is NOW! If you have been going through life pretty much the same and often with one challenge 
after another, whether personal or in the collective then it’s time for change. Many people live life with all kinds of 
dissatisfaction yet stay in the same situation, complaining or putting up with the situation. This is an old energy 
matrix. 

Life does not need to be painful, mundane, up and down or, at best, OK. Life in the New Earth is meant to be Amazing.
... fulfilling, meaningful, mysterious, joyful and abundant. If you haven’t felt any of these emotions in a long time then
something deep needs to change. 

Review your work or career; take stock your your relationships, personal and other; assess your daily routines and 
check if these bring you joy or just more of the same; are your belief systems and religious ideas expanding or 
constricting you and your Mind? Is the way you look at Life and Reality bringing you more positive emotions or just 
creating more doubts, worries and constant fears?

All these can change, and you have the power to Make the Change! Start with the first step!

* Take time to pause and assess how your life is going? At whatever age or situation you are in life, change is possible. 
Choose the path towards greater peace, ease and happiness.

* Wake up early each morning. Take time to be in sunlight or at least to gaze out of your window for a few minutes 
and breathe. The sun not only brings heat, solar light and new energy but new light codes that will help rewire your brain 
and nourishes your physical and etheric bodies.

* Do something different each day. Find a new path to walk or drive on. Take a new course. Listen to a different kind 
of music or youtube speaker. 

* Make a decision to change what is painful in your life. Once a DECISION is Made, the next steps are easier. Take the 
first step and the Universe will support all your steps forward!

 

 

 

Empowering AJNA, your Third Eye chakra, through chakra yoga practices

Welcome to my intro video on AJNA, the THIRD EYE Chakra which governs your Mental energy and Thought Patterns. The Third Eye chakra influences your Pituary gland, the master gland for your whole ENDOCRINE System and thus how effective your hormonal function is. It also influences your Cerebrum, the thinking aspect of your brain.

As Ajana chakra is situated between the Left and Right lobes of your brain, it helps to ensure more balance in your thought processes by expanding right brain function. This enhances Visual Perception, Imagery, Imagination, Intuition, Insight as well as Dream recall among other more psychic senses.

In Chakra Yoga classes we use visual concentration and guided meditation techniques to activate the Third Eye among other techniques. Check out the video to learn more, join the Chakra Yoga course or on-going classes in Penang, Malaysia.
