Be Held

A workshop for compassionate stress reduction
Sunday September 22nd 2019   
2-5pm @seldasoulspace, South East London

'Be Held' workshops focus on providing a safe space for you to feel nurtured, supported by a sense community and learn practical tools to help you cultivate a kinder, more connected, courageous and joyful life. We encourage a relaxed, informal and welcoming atmosphere for all, where everything is offered as an invitation. We like to include time for tea.

22nd September, 2pm-5pm  'Be Held for compassionate stress reduction' will be presented in collaboration with Selda at her beautiful studio - Selda Soul Space in South East London, UK.

During the first half of our workshop Carly will be guiding you through some simple and gentle practices. Selda and Carly will then offer the space for a little sharing and tea. Selda will complete the afternoon with a compassion focussed guided relaxation and blissful sound healing with the beautiful crystal bowls and closing.

Carly Taylor, founder of Ginger Pai, is passionate about inspiring people to live a compassionate, courageous, and connected life. Her own life experience has led her to be an advocate for non-negotiable self-care, to witness grief as a mysterious invitation for greater self-knowledge and as an opening to a deeper level of love in her life. Carly is appreciated for her insightful teaching, delivered with authenticity, good humor, and a gentle and down to earth approach. Since 2006 Carly has delivered personal development / self care workshops and mindful Hatha yoga sessions for emotional and mental health in a diverse range of locations. She successfully coaches people of all ages, one-on-one, to help them compassionately navigate challenging times in their lives. Through her consultancy work she supports business's and individuals to create meaningful connections and wellness programs. Carly is based in Lisbon, Portugal and a frequent visitor to her home city - London, UK.

Selda works as a soul guide, offering trusting spaces for people to rediscover their true essence. Her passion lies in working with sound and light as forms of healing. Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls emit a pure cosmic sound that expands into a multitude of vibrant overtones. Through sound, vibration and intent they assist in clearing blockages, rewiring brain chemistry, activating chakras and elevating our state of consciousness to ever more refined levels. Selda believes that compassion is at the heart of life’s teachings.
