Official Launch of the Illuminate Tapestry

Brighton & Hove Libraries Blog

The launch of the Illuminate tapestry, created by the Network of International Women of Brighton & Hove, took place on Saturday 23rd June. The film of the making of the tapestry was presented by  Councillor Alex Phillips, the Deputy Mayor. Dee Simson, the Mayor, and Pinaki Ghoshal, Director of Children, Family and Schools were also present. Representatives from the Brighton & Hove Community Safety Partnership and Sanctuary on Sea attended the event. There were at least 50 people present, including some of the women who had created the tapestry and their families.IMG_0044

Some of the contributors to the tapestry, stood up and spoke about what participating in the project had meant to them, the friendship and acceptance of other women, and working together to create and share something of their home country – which was very humbling.

Sacred Cacao Ceremony & Shiva Dance Rhythms & Gong Bath
(Limited Places)

DAY: Sunday 29 April
START: 3-6pm
PRICE: £30 or £35 on the day
VENUE: St Richards Church Hall,
The Crossway, Hollingdean

NB: Free Parking

Evolve into your authentic self, just as the pupa (chrysalis)
evolves and transforms into an amazingly beautiful butterfly.
Spread your wings of confidence, creativity and float away
on the rising, physical and psychological healing vibrations life
can offer.

Opening with a sacred cacao ceremony is an opportunity to connect to yourself and open your heart. Because of cacao’s ability to increase your connection to your inner self and your heart chakra, it aids in any transformational shift you are working towards, whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of who you are, release old patterns and traumas, or move into a more self-confident space. Whatever your path, the intention is yours to set, and the cacao allows you to the insight and awareness to move towards that goal. And it makes you HAPPY!

Shiva Dance Rhythms will allow to release physical tension, by
moving and expressing your inner creativity. Let loose and flow
with the rhythm in your soul, releasing all inhibitions and feel them fall away.

Then flow into the healing vibrations of the Gongs. Be guided as
you float into the passive side of zero, where only consciousness

GONG BATH: Bring: Mat + Blanket + Cosy Clothes
