Your joy in being arises from the most intimate.
All that you desire in relating & life
blossoms in silent stillness

Essence – a Self-Enquiry course

Essence is a profound approach for increased freedom, ease, happiness and creativity, and for the letting go of perceived and conditioned limitations. You will Let go and Live Light, fully embodied.

This webinar course will allow you to experience deeply and understand some of the most fundamental aspects of the Essence approach  so that you can confidently release any thought or feeling at any time – whether in your own quiet space or actively engaged in life. This allows you to enjoy natural beingness, to feel free of old issues and problems and to create a life of ease, happiness and joy.

Reap the benefits of this extraordinary way of dissolving limitation and emotional reactivity. Essence can be used in the moment, in all situations and in all interactions to enhance every area of life.

Traditionally, these profound teachings have been offered day by day. In the West, this intensity of connection with a guide is not so easy for most. Nevertheless, this consistency is vital if misunderstandings about spiritual awakening are to be cleared up, and if blindspots and unhelpful habitual behaviours are to be seen through.

This Online course allows you to receive a consistency of presence and transmission that one-to-one is impossible practically for most people. You will experience openings that can then stabilise in everyday life, and during breaks between other Secret Garden events if you choose to attend them.

Dismantling Your Limits to Living Life Wide Open

The Essence Online course is totally complete and highly life enhancing in its own right. It can also be a springboard to the life-changing further training as a Coach, where, while exponentially deepening your own freedom in every area of your life, you can also facilitate others in dissolving limitation. This profoundly awakening training allows you to experience how to deepen your coaching/people practice, help those in your life more effectively and enrich and energise your own life at the same time! Alternatively, if you wish you can build on this foundation and experience the always new Essence Live Retreat  autumn 2021. If you are sure you wish to go deep, then you can simply register your interest for the above, for which prior completion of both Online courses including Let Go, Live Light ho’oponopono  Forgiveness, are mandatory.

This Essence Online recorded webinar course is all-new, and even if you have worked with Joy for many years you will experience a very significant and permanent shift in your awakeness.

This Essence approach is radical, it goes direct to the root, to essential nature-this is the core beyond story, thought and feeling – that we return to over and over again. Awaken to your true nature, to Essence. All problems dissolve then. Miracle solutions arise.

Discover the infinite power & creativity that is, when you let go into life, here, now.

Essence – the true source of your joy and blossoming.
