“Intuition Journey - Music and the Medicine Wheel"
A workshop with Brooksie Wells
Brighton Unitarian Church
Suggested donation: £5-£10 on the door
This is a unique experience! Intuition Journey is an interactive workshop using the medicine wheel as a path for transformation and healing. It feels great to get together in this powerful way! We will show how music is a bridge to the intuitive mind and offer techniques that can start you on your own path.
INTUITION is an important capability that we ALL have - we ALL use - and we normally don't take the time to understand and develop it. If you've always wondered about how to understand or trust it, and how to differentiate it from your fears, join us for this introduction to your Intuition.
We are all connected in so many profound ways. Come share your intuitive path with other seekers. We have shared our teachings with many groups including six summer sessions as faculty at The Chautauqua Institute in New York.
Using the format of a Native American medicine wheel we introduce you to how to recognize intuition. You will try a couple of these techniques yourself and see how they resonate in your life. Everyone will receive an extensive bibliography and handouts and we have a CD and four sets of cards which helps to continue to practice at home.
If you want more depth, we also can offer on line weekend workshops. More on this at the event! Look forward to meeting you all! Brooksie and Nina

Flying the flag for over-50s musicians, American singer-songwriter Ms. Brooksie Wells was discovered at 19, her early demos were with John Lennon's band Elephant's Memory and she was also a singer with Kid Creole and the Coconuts before restarting her music career in 2008. Her last three albums have hit top 10 in the folk charts and her new album "Stops Time" is out now!
Brooksie Wells was a child of the sixties whose father was a Civil Rights activist from the deep South. Discovered by Bobby Darin at 19, Brooksie wrote for years for Chappell Music, with several of her songs used in recordings and movie soundtracks. Her early demos were with John Lennon's band Elephant's Memory and she was also a singer with Kid Creole and the Coconuts. (Kid Creole's recording "Off The Coast Of Me" has been re-released).
She left New York to raise her kids in Virginia and performed for children for many years. Returning to her music career in 2008, with the help of Kari Estrin, she focused her songwriting toward folk and this proved to be the doorway to success.
