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. Please do add Emma Reiki King and Margaret West to your facebook/twitter friends list to keep up to date with all the workshops and news. We promise not to bother you unless you contact us first for information. Emma's email is connectionswithspiritworkshops(at)hotmail(dot)comWe like to be interactive with students and people, so do feel free to leave any feedback about circles or workshops you have attended. Or just pop by and say hello or ask a question. We will always try to reply promptly.

Losing a child

Nothing can be worse than losing a child. Many people have come to me and ask why? What did I do so wrong that my child had to die? I have no easy answer. I can only tell you what my own guides have told me. They are not 'in charge' of life and death. That is of the physical world. They cry with us when a soul is returned.
No one did anything wrong. Sometimes things happen for no reason that can be explained. I can tell you with open hearted honesty, that any child returned to spirit will live on. No-one ever truly dies. They just disappear from our physical eyes, only to reappear when it is time for you both to be together again.

Last year I posted a poem from Beverley Stuive, in memory of her son Josiah James Alexander Stuive who died soon after birth 27/4/2001. It is so beautiful I thought I'd re-post it.

Heaven's Baby CastleIn a baby's castle just beyond my eye
My baby plays with angel toys that money cannot buy

Who am I to wish his back into this world of strife?
No, play on my baby, you have eternal life

When all around is silent and sleep forsakes my eyes
I'll hear his tiny footsteps come running at my side

His little hand caresses me so tenderly and sweet
I'll breathe a little prayer and close my eyes and embrace his in my sleep

Now I have a treasure I rate above all other
I have known true glory - I am still his mother
