Thank you 2015 & Hello 2016!

Solstice Blessings and a Happy New Year to you all!!
Hope you’re all feeling rested after the frantic festive month!

2015 was a great year for The Musery and I would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support and enthusiasm.
Just a snippet of The Musery happenings in 2015….
Birmingham Buddhist Centre, Julie Baker Yoga, Shambala Festival, Northern Green Gathering, Federation of Holistic Therapists, Lunar Festival, Nessi Gomes, and Eden Reborn….

I would also like to give a special mention to ATHAC. Access to Heritage, Art and Culture’ (Athac CIC) is a social enterprise providing services for parents & carers to access local and national leisure, culture, and the arts.

Parents who access the services are the main carers to children with a range of disabilities including autism, learning difficulties and challenging behavior. The group was founded in 2004 and aims to break down barriers to disabled children and their families and to provide enriching life opportunities and access to heritage, art and culture.

“Families often find it very difficult to find accessible and accessible leisure opportunities out of school. Sound therapy seemed an interesting approach to working with children with severe disabilities as it was utilising a basic sensory sense which required no interaction from the participant. The sound sessions by Soesen have had a significant impact on the children and young people with autism and profound disabilities… Sound uses a therapeutic approach which relies on the individual to responding to the sounds in anyway they choose too. Responses from the group to the sounds from the instruments has been interesting to observe. Parents have reported their child being more calm and relaxed when they return home. The session have also been a learning curve in developing good observational skills allowing the team to build up a sensory profile on the preferences of each child.”
Carol Reid, ATHAC.

I have been working with this group using sound for the last 6 months and it has been a truly eye opening and humbling experience and I look forward to our continued work and discovery in 2016.

If you’ve decided like many that this year is the year to take care and nourish yourself and bringing in goodness for your body mind and soul then this month is the perfect opportunity to get started!
Give yourself some time, some attention and love.
And a great way to start your journey of wellbeing and nourishment is to dip into a sound bath!

I have 3 lined up so far for 2016:

January 31st, 6:30pm
February 21st, 6pm
March 20th, 6pm

All will be taking place at Birmingham Buddhist Centre and booking is essential.

I will also be running a sound bath for the Balsall Heath Womens Institute on January 10th if any ladies would like to take part in this and a talk about mental health.

Looking forward to what 2016 has to offer and seeing some of you very soon!
