Intro workshop : Healing & Transformation with Serpent power (19Oct at Atlantis Bookshop, London)

Serpents & Dragons have always symbolised Hidden Wisdom, personal energy (Kundalini rising), sexuality, protection, fertility, Healing and transformation.

From Python the Dragon who guards Gaia the Earth Goddess, NagaPooshani the Hindu Snake Goddess who removes Dhoshas & curses, to Wadjet the Egyptian snake goddess who adorns the crowns of Pharos & deities, Minoan Snake Goddess of Knossos, Cernunnos Lord of the Beasts, Myths and religious stories are full of deities who wield serpent power!

 

This is a first in a series of workshops that introduce working with the new energies of 2016 and onwards, embracing change and facilitating self-transformation.

Serpent Power – Magical Workshops coming soon! (London)

Okay..I can’t contain this excitement so am going to just blurt it.. Melanie Philippides and I have been planning a set of rather powerful workshops involving.. ( take a deep breath).. snakes! Pythons in fact. She has 2.. and is looking after a 3rd one.. one of them is very large indeed..(twice as big as this one in photo).. whom I met yesterday evening.. for ..shall we say, `getting attuned’ before working on the details of workshops..!) 🙂

Mani & Melanie serpent power workshops coming soon .jpg

I met Melanie first at the Birthday of Goddess Isis ritual by Cleopatra’s Needle, Embankment, in 2013.. but lost touch for a few years but was facebook friends. The photo below was taken at one of Melanie’s snake / fusion Belly dance performance in a venue in Croydon last October’15 where I met her again (and Shiva). We seem to have all that Game of Throne, snakes & Dragons magical explorations in common..and the result now of course are these magical joint workshops..

watch out for full details in a few days..  and then ..book fast…as spaces will be limited!

Bright Blessings

Melanie Ivy- Mother of Dragon (Game of Throne -fan belly dance video)

Dear all,  guess what?  It’s finally here – The Melanie Ivy – Mother of Dragon fan Video – that I filmed/produced with my friend Melanie!

As some of you know, I have been venturing more into dance / music / story telling videos…(and not just Esoteric / magical videos, features or DrWho fan series!).  And this is the latest in that creative stream!

We filmed this over 2 separate days (one in March’16, and one in April’16) in and around parks/ woods in Croydon (South London area).   My sister Vathani helped a lot with day#2 of filming  & support (when we had to set up a bonfire, as well as look after Melanie’s pet Python Shiva).

The editing took some time..but I did the `Editor’s cut’ (version 1) over a solid 2 day work..  Showed it to Melanie, had ideas and re-edited it (shorter, faster)..and here is the final work.

my  big thanks & praise to Melanie (and Shiva the snake) for working hard with me on making this video.. It’s the sort of creative thing I had wanted to do for many years… and here we are!

There’ll be some behind the scenes clips up soon.. But for now.. enjoy this dance-story….and do visit her YT video channel and subscribe!!

A Ceremony of Flow – Photoshoot with Melanie Ivy

Hi all, amongst other creative and esoteric things, I also enjoy taking photos, filming & producing videos.  I have been working with the divinely delightful Melanie Ivy (to call her an important muse in my life is an under-statement).  She is a  Lifecoach, fusion Belly dancer and a snake-charmer (I’ve gently played with her pet Python). We’ve been doing some videos (more on that another time).

Earlier this afternoon, Melanie & I drove up to a rather important woodland and an actual Spring..     Here’s a few of the photos I took.. More soon. 🙂

Bright Blessings.  -Mani
