Helen is a very well respected holistic physician and healer who studied at Cambridge University and continued medical studies at Middlesex Hospital, London and then completed them with house jobs in Neurology under Dr. Michael Kremer at the Middlesex and general surgery and general medicine at Addenbrooks. Obtained MRCP two years after qualifying then went to work in Canada for five years.
Helen says “I call myself a holistic physician because I treat mind, body, and spirit as an interactive whole. I have come to understand that illness arises in the body or mind as a result of some kind of separation from the soul’s truth. In my experience, anyone who is allowing the core truth of their own inner being. soul to flow freely into expression will be happy, healthy and fulfilled. It is also my experience that when someone becomes ill because they have chosen to express something other than their truth, this illness can be healed if truth’s flow is restored.”
Jenny Brooke, Silent Presence & Breathing
Silent Presence was co-created by therapists Jenny Brooke and Jenny Brickett in 2005 after they had spent many times together in Silent Meditation then developing the process over a period of two years. The purpose of Silent Presence is to become aware of and spend time in the present moment, observing how our mind and emotions continually attempt to take us away from this space. During Silent Meditation it becomes possible to touch this space and we begin to discover we can return there and give ourselves deep inward time for ourselves.
During the retreat, time will be spent in sitting meditation within the group, and walking meditation alone in nature. The latter gives the opportunity of deeper connection with whatever we encounter in the natural surroundings wherever we are. Help is always available as and when needed throughout the retreat. There are also suggestions and support for taking Silent Presence into our daily lives.
Jenny Brooke lived and worked at the Findhorn Foundation in the 1970’s. She is a trained Rebirther, breath-work therapist and meditation teacher. She worked at the Hamar Cancer Help centre teaching relaxation and meditation, trained with the Health Education Council and ran Look After Yourself courses for various councils as well a being in private practice for many years. She is a Reiki master and reflexologist and currently runs several retreats each year in North Wales and Shropshire.
