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.

What is kundalini energy?
I thought I would explain a bit about this type of energy within us as a student of mine inadvertantly tapped into hers when she was doing her Psychic Development modules.
Kundalini is an energy that exists in everyone's body, but it is usually in a dormant state. Consequently most people never know it is even there. But in a very few people, maybe just one in one thousand, this energy becomes awakened. This can be a happy event or it can be scary, painful and disruptive, depending on whether you aroused your kundalini on purpose or by accident.
The Sanskrit word, kundalini, means coiled, like a snake.It is an energy which is not recognized by medical science, and is often little understood even among teachers of Yoga and meditative traditions. Because of this misconception it is rarely spoken about or even used. But you will find it mentioned in the literature of Yoga and Tantra (both Buddhist and Hindu).
Some believe that the word "kundalini" is more metaphoric or legendary. But after experiencing its power, I can state it is very real. Kundalini enegy sits at the base of the spine. It can be "awakened" by intense meditation or intense breath control practices. Hatha Yoga and Tantra Yoga, in their traditional forms, are designed to arouse it so that the practitioner can use the tremendous energy released to increase the potency of his or her meditation and other spiritual practices. A person must undergo extensive preparations before attempting to arouse their kundalini. Otherwise it can cause more harm to the eprson than good.
The person who successfully and safely arouses their kundalini gains a great ally on their spiritual journey. That ally is an energy, a vitality, that smooth’s the path, and makes the steep slopes easier to climb. In short, Kundalini can change you quickly. It can advance your spiritual aspirations. But it is not something that should be undertaken lightly.
Our bodies hide many secrets. Some we will not discover in this lifetime. We are energy in physical form so it stands to reason somewhere in our body will be a back up generator. That being the Kundalini energy.
