Following a mid-life crisis of depression and a dire gut wrenching need to a make much greater sense of life, I was able to take my life apart and start over a second time. I got involved in the burgeoning Alternative Movement of the 1970’s and after a while found my way to San Francisco, that great melting pot of new ideas, new thinking and experiments in human evolution. There I enrolled in the Fischer-Hoffman Process (now Hoffman Process) which helped me no end with left over childhood issues. I re-learned to dance my body with Gabrielle Roth and took part in her first ever training in 1982, I joined the unique Holistic Psychology MA programme at Antioch University where I learned loads and also came across the ancient wisdom of the Native American people. I gradually came to realise that their psychology, ecology and spiritual understanding is far superior to anything in our world and I have followed this ancient wisdom ever since.

As I have got older, so I have become younger! It is my great joy to pass on to others through these workshops, some of the experience and knowledge that has helped me to transform my life. A process that goes on and on…

“I have been a practitioner now for almost 40 years and will continue till it’s time to go!”

Thrive my friends, do thrive and be the light which can show the way!

Magdalena Atkinson– a soulful singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, yogini, music therapy facilitator, Gene Keys guide and a dreamer …

Her music gently heals confusion, empowers and inspires. Experience this truly magical and eclectic voice, at times touching your heart with its gentle quality, at others lifting your spirit with its power and resonance, inviting you to dance, stump or sing-along. Her solo music is an original and unique blend of modern folk with elements of progressive new age. During her performances she always tunes into her audience offering what feels right in each and every moment from her rich original repertoire of songs. She plays the hammered dulcimer, the piano, the guitar, healing drums and percussive instruments.

Magdalena’s passion lies in sharing positive vibes in all she does. You can experience it at her intimate acoustic concerts, where you are likely being invited to take part in her music creation. For that reason, she has created ‘Thrive’ Interactive Concerts where her audience take an active part in chanting, singing or drumming.​With her love for music and yoga she offers Shakti Dance– yoga of dance workshops and Kirtans – devotional singing at yoga centres and retreats, and regular yoga and relaxation classes at her home studio.

The lyrical romance of the past grew into a much stronger, positive and uplifting future, leading to the creation of the band – Magdalena and the Mystical Birds, with richer jazzy and rhythmic section, perfect for festivals and  wider audiences. – Link to song Thrive – Link to promo of solo performances

Starseeds are the Pioneers, the Map-Makers, the Magicians, the
Co-Creators with Spirit. Starseeds are not native to this 3D dimension
of the earth. Starseeds come to help anchor a new set of energetic
frequencies on the earth. Starseeds are the pioneers of consciousness,
reality creation/co-creation to help birth a new world. Starseeds are
Here to Create Heaven on Earth. We are here to create our reality and to
shift away from growth through suffering to the higher octave of growth
through joy and bliss.On the path of awakening there are many challenges, including our own resistance to the path. This workshop explores the main challenges and how to navigate them. it also explores the spiritual resources and Angelic Support available at this time. This workshop includes information, some processes and a meditation.


Many now are working through issues with their relationship to abundance
and the flow of money. This is all part of the shift from 3D consciousness to 5D consciousness.  Concerning money, there is a lot of collective anxiety, fear, anger and shame around the topic. Within our 3D bloodlines, there are also energies, programs and agreements that can block abundance. Furthermore, when we add other life karma and trauma into the mix, the potential blocks to money, abundance and success can seem almost insurmountable. Abundance can mean different things depending on one’s level of awakening, consciousness, and frequency. On a 3D level, it usually
equates with competition, money and material acquisition. On a  4D level
it is about mastering the various components of manifesting abundance
easily and gracefully. On a 5D level, it is more about stabilising in
the higher vibrational flow of abundance in its many forms which include
the important elements of fun, play, joy, love, support, opportunities
and pure delight. This workshop includes information, some processes and
a meditation.


How would you like to move forward in 2021 with clarity and an open heart? Are you ready to release the old worn out stories – and write a whole new story? One that is bright, clear and joyous – and full of meaning and purpose? Pranayama is a transformative ancient technology that was gifted for our time to facilitates the release of emotional sub-conscious patterns.  This leaves a clear space for a heart that feels grounded in the present. Pranayama helps us to level up our frequency so that we are more aligned with our true home, the vibration of freedom and love.

A daily Pranayama practice will antidote the intensity of the fear-based matrix of this decade.  

In this workshop you will learn a series of breaths which you can use as a daily practice to help you upgrade your frequency to better navigate your life.  No previous experience necessary, if you can breathe, you can do it!  Please ensure you have an empty stomach (2 hours) and bring a cushion to sit on.

Elahn Keshava & Gisela Lirusso

Elahn and Gisela ran Shekinashram the much loved Bhakti Yoga ashram in Glastonbury UK for 17 years introducing people to the beauty and grace of the path of devotion through kirtan, ceremony and storytelling. Having studied and practised in both eastern and western mystical traditions they synthesise their different influences into a unique blend of bhakti yoga. Gisela’s main passion having worked with medicinal plants for nearly 20 years, is her apothecary where she practices alchemy and makes spagyric preparations in connection with the cycle of nature, the elements, and the planetary influences within the plants, which has given her a holistic understanding of what is to be a natural medicine maker. 

Kirtan –  Bhakti Yoga Experience

The Bhakti Yoga Experience is an opportunity to dive into the ocean of nectar which is the sublime Yoga of love and devotion (bhakti).   The workshop will be comprised of mostly Kirtan, which is the congregational singing of devotional mantras and story telling which is used to share some of the age old secrets and wisdom of the sages from the bhakti yoga tradition.    Originating from the ancient Vedic system of India this path ultimately leads the individual on a heart melting journey to become a lover of the Supreme Beloved.  Well known for both our soft ambient moods of devotional chanting and high energy kirtan we invite everyone to join us on a beautiful and inspiring pilgrimage to the Heart of the Beloved.

Plant Spirit Journey  – Gisela Lirusso

I will guide you to a Plant spirit journey bringing us back to our ancient roots of being aware of the unity of all of life and learn to listening them  and treating plants with love and respect. Research shows that plants have feelings, intelligence, and can sense our intentions and respond to our actions. Let’s answer their calls together, and receive the medicine that is always available when we open ourselves to the wisdom of the plant spirits.
