What we do

Connections With Spirit is owned by Margaret West, a lady of many talents. You can find her website here At Connections with spirit, we offer you training in many different practitioner courses and also many other metaphysical studies. The workshops are designed to not only enlighten you, but also to financially help those she considers are voiceless, with profits from the workshops. Margaret works full time as an alternative Therapist, and this she considers is her income to pay the bills. Profit from the workshops, after paying the facilitators etc, is donated. The prices for our workshops are reasonable and competitive, and we like to think that we give each one our personal touch of beauty and laughter. Cake is always on offer at lunchtimes, as we feel no one should learn without a good slice of cake to fortify them!! We use a few facilitators, who are excellent in their field, but mainly Margaret does all the teaching. So you can be assured that the quality of our courses are always top notch.We also have stalls at the workshops where you can buy beautiful jewellery and Holistic Crystal pendants, which Margaret makes herself. Each pendant is an active crystal that will help with various conditions of the mind, body and spirit.Emma King is Connections with spirit's event manager, events organiser and Personal Assistant to Margaret West. She will be your main port of call for any questions you have or booking details that you may need for any workshops or development circles.

Leaving this world

Well it’s been dome time since I’ve blogged and I have only just started catching up with myself. Before I get back on topic, I’d like to talk about how I felt when a loved one passed away so suddenly last month. I was surprised how many people said to me ‘but why are you sad your mother in law died? You know where she is, you know she is okay." Yes I do know, but I am also human and as such, grieve her loss dearly. The same month I also lost my little dog, Chester. A double blow. For a time I wondered what was the point of loving so much, for it all to be snatched away. The simple fact is... we are born, we live and then we die, so our spirit can journey on and grow. The one’s left behind feel lost, alone and sometimes unable to cope with never seeing that person/animal again. Time heals! Yet does it for some? Can anyone share their feelings about losing someone? How do you cope?


  1. I lost someone last year who was the love of my life, in fact he was my life. I cried almost nonstop for days and when that eased I decided the only way to cope with my loss was to take each day as it came, I also speak with him every day, tell him about my day when I go to bed, it helps and it has got easier, but not much better. A year on I am still greiving,(very much so), but I know he is still with me in spirit, my heart and constant thoughts, and I know when I leave this earth I will meet him again and if I am lucky he might even be the one to meet me and guide to the other side.Loving thoughts to all who have lost someone very dear Patricia

  2. It is difficult when a love one passes on because we know we will never be able to speak to each other in the way we have but, we must know that the one we lost is okay. It is comforting to know that they are embarking on the next stage of life. Our bodies may die but our spirits live on. I have lost many whom I love but, I feel blessed to have known them for the time that I have.
    I love your blog Margaret...thanks for putting the happy spirit out there!
