It’s your party and everyone loves a great party

SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH OPENS WOODBERRY WETLANDS

David Attenborough in one of our marquees for the launce of Woodberry Wetlands.

Our team had quite the ‘wild’ day out last weekend. Woodberry Wetlands approached our company to provide an event space for the opening of their beautiful wetlands centre on 30th April, after all it has been closed to the public for 200 years.

To add to the sense of occasion, the centre was opened by eminent broadcaster and naturalist, Sir David Attenborough.

With a note from the client; “Thanks for a grand job at Woodberry Wetlands launch”, it is another success to add to our proved track record in delivering outstanding marquee events.

THE EVENT

The opening of Woodberry Wetlands, a beautiful space centre to be opened by Sir David Attenborough on 30th April.

THE CHALLENGE

The challenge was simple for Marquee Hire Surrey, to create an exceptional marquee event space to hold VIP’s, press, and of course, Sir David for the opening of this stunning space in London.

Build and de-rig were to be on the same day, so our team needed to use a structure that could be set up and taken down within this timelines.

THE SOLUTION

Whilst the site spans the size of over 13 football pitches, the size allocated for the marquee was somewhat smaller.

Marquee Hire arrived on site on Saturday at 0730 to begin build of a 6m x21m marquee, which needed to be weighted using our marquee weights as it was situated on hard standing. The marquee needed one side open to enjoy the stunning vistas across the wetlands, with access to the rear for catering a services. At one end of the marquee a small stage was constructed for speeches and formalities.

There is no function that is too much of a challenge for Marquee Hire and Marquee Hire Sussex to handle. Their years of knowledge and expertise shows in the professionalism they show with every event.

Why Tantric massage training in UK?

Tantric Workshops London teach Emotional Detox for a peaceful society

Tantra holds the key to connection – to create connection to your inner self which in return

Thai massage stretching

will allow you to create connection with others and your loved ones. In a society that reminds people to be humane, Tantra will help heal past hurt, as the goal and process of Tantra is to surpass hurt in order to attain happiness and bliss. Tantra is capable of removing the pain induced negative behavior of a person which is also called an Emotional Detox. An Emotional Detox comprises many spiritual, emotional, psychological and physiological benefits. Therefore, Tantric Journey School of Healing and Awakening has taken the initiative to conduct Tantric massage training UK that is called Emotional Detox through Tantra and Tao Bodywork.

If you are planning on receiving a Tantric massage in London and if you like to know the benefits of emotional detox, please read our blog on Benefits of Emotional Detox http://www.tantricjourney.com/uncategorized/benefits-emotional-detox/

Tantric massage in London varies and some could be misleading and do not hold the essence of the Tantra teaching as they are only intended for pleasure, but whereas the essence of Tantric massages is to heal and connect to higher source energy to live at optimum. This is done by acting as mediator to our client to help the client to remove negative stagnant emotions in the cellular memory in the body’s cells that block the positive energy flow (positive emotions) that contribute to our health, love, happiness and ecstasy.

In our Tantric Workshop in London, that is called Emotional Detox through Tantra and Tantra Bodywork, we teach our students the core representation of Tantra laced with Tao teachings. Tantra allows expanding with consciousness and Tao integrates both male and female energies (Ying and Yan) to attain ‘oneness’, which is alignment with all that – is and the universal energy (also known as source energy). This alignment allows a person step up many levels of emotional intelligence which acts as a guidance system towards desired goals. Therefore Emotional Detox through Tantric massage training in UK can contribute to the multiplication of awakened and conscious beings in this world. Therefore Tantric massage in London is ideal for maintaining peace in the society in London.

Having worked with over 3000 women from all over the world spanning across U.S, Europe, U.K and Asia and having recognized the dire need of healing therapy to reconstruct people especially in London, I took the initiative set up Tantric Journey School of Healing and Awakening to help people learn the art of healing to anyone who wanted to become a healer. Thus, Tantric Journey became the first Tantric massage training in UK that was set apart from other Tantra remedies. Our, Tantric workshop in London employs cellular memory, mind- body connection, quantum physics and other prominent researches that claim healing is a state of mind.

Tantric massage in London is generally perceived as a pleasure – indulgent massage and Tantra is the herald of many misconceptions. In order to obtain a better understanding and to dispel myths about Tantra, read our blog on 3 Myths about Tantra and Tantric Sex.

To dispel the main myth about “Tantra is only about sex” it is good to know some Tantric sex practices do not have any physical contact of genitals. It is good to keep in mind the fundamental ideology of Tantric sex is about cultivating sexual energy within yourself to have a deeper understanding of yourself in order to connect to your partner who would do the same. Therefore Tantric sex is about energetically connecting with you and your partner to forge a bond beyond a physical realm to bring about love, intimacy, passion and the most vital ingredient – trust. The practice of Tantric sex with copulation or without copulation can heal a relationship or heal one partner who houses both emotional and physical pain. Learn how to embed the benefits of Tantric sex in your life through our blog Tantric Sex.

Tantric Journey Tantric massage training in UK can be set apart from many standard Tantra massages as every client I treat has always had near 100% success rate in healing. As I mentioned before, the Tantric Journey Bodywork is not purely intended for pleasure, the Tantric massage in London is performed to heal past trauma such as sexual abuse, physical abuse and psychological abuse that is stored in the body’s cellular memory. Tantra is weaving the spiritual body, emotional body and the physical body in order to connect to the divine source energy to attain a state of bliss and happiness. Therefore, I work as a mediator in assisting the weaving by removing stagnant negative emotions and energy blocks and physical blocks stored as toxins in the body. Tantric workshop in London honours women and womanhood. It teaches women self-respect and the most precious jewel for a women is self –respect that brings about self-discipline, self-confidence and self-esteem and teaches her to create her own safe circle allowing experiences that only nourish her.

Tantric Journey School of Healing and Awakening conducts its Tantric workshops in London at the Tantric Journey Temple. The workshops are of three types namely, Tantra Taster Evening, Tantra Teacher Training Course and Emotional Detox through Tantra & Tao Bodywork.

How to look after your pop-up marquee

DIY MARQUEE feel so confident with the quality of their products they have written several interesting articles on how to care your pop-up marquee.

Have a look at this helpful article recently written

How often do marquees need cleaning?

It depends on the frequency a marquee is used, the environment it is erected in, the material in question and the weather conditions but in general marquee hire companies will lightly clean a marquee nearly every time it goes up but do a thorough ingrained clean maybe twice a year.

By lightly clean I mean wipe down any marks or mud that may have splattered on to the sides, this can be done when the marquee is erected on site. By ingrained clean I mean using a power washer, a floor scrubber or brush and strong marquee cleaner product or getting a professional marquee cleaning company in. Ingrained cleaning removes the grey film that builds up on marquees over time.

There are three categories of dirt on a Classic DIY Marquee:

  • mud splatters or other marks on the covers. These can be removed by light cleaning
  • grey film that builds up over time, to be removed by an ingrain clean
  • dirt and residue from trees. If it rains when your marquee is under a tree a lot of dirt gets washed off leaves on to your marquee, there may even be some sap on there too. The dirtiest marquee I ever saw was one erected under a tree. These need ingrain cleaning immediately as they won’t be good enough to hire out and leaving sap on PVC would not be good.

Different marquee materials, different cleaning methods:

  • Canvas cannot be cleaned without removing it’s FR coating
  • PVC can be cleaned as above; good quality PVC (like ours) will have a laminate coating to make it easier to clean.
  • Clear PVC (window panels) must be cleaned very carefully so the clear material isn’t scratched.
  • Poly/PVC you have to be careful as the PVC coating is a single layer than can be scratched off with aggressive cleaning.
  • PE material can be cleaned similar to PVC though doesn’t have a laminate coating so will not come back as new.

The most important point of all – never put your marquee away when wet. A wet stored marquee will create mildew (PVC & PE) or may rot (canvas & the stitching in any stitched marquee).

Change your life with Neuro-Linguistic Programming

What is “Neuro-Linguistic Programming“?

NLP in London, or Neuro-Linguistic Programming, is the art and science of excellence, derived from studying how top people in different fields obtain their outstanding results. These communication skills can be learned by anyone to improve their effectiveness both personally and professionally. It is directly applicable to a diverse spectrum of fields such as communications, business, sales, education and therapy

Beginnings of Neuro-Linguistic Programming UK

NLP began in the early 70′s as a thesis project in Santa Cruz, California. Richard Bandler and his professor, John Grinder, wanted to develop models of human behavior to understand why certain people seemed to be excellent at what they did, while others found the same tasks challenging or nearly impossible to do.

Inspired by pioneers in fields of therapy and personal growth and development, Bandler and Grinder began to develop systematic procedures and theories that formed the basis of NLP. They studied three top therapists: Virginia Satir, the extraordinary family therapist, who consistently was able to resolve difficult family relationships that many other therapists found intractable, the innovative psychotherapist Fritz Perls, who originated the school of therapy known as Gestalt, and Milton Erickson, the world-famous hypnotherapist.

Their goal was to develop models of how it was that these people got the results they did. They sought to identify and model the patterns that produced these results and then to teach these models to others. These three gifted therapists were quite different personalities, yet Grinder and Bandler discovered some underlying patterns that were quite similar. These patterns became the underlying structure of NLP, with names like: meta-model,submodalities, reframing, language patterns, well formedness conditions and eye accessing clues.

The phrase “Neuro-Linguistic Programming” describes the process of how personality creates and expresses itself. Put simply, we are all made up of a neurology that conveys information about our environment to our central neurvous systems and brains. Since we are also meaning creating creatures, we translate these perceptions in our brains into meanings, beliefs and expectations. As we continue to grow from a rather “critter brain” baby into a more complex adult human, we tend to filter,distort and magnify the input we get from our environment such that it matches the elaborate program we evolve to explain our life experience.

The infant passes through “magical thinking” and various other stages of development, on its journey into becoming an adult. We may even carry with us the “suffering contracts” we made as children in unworkable attempts to love and heal the family. The study of how we do all this, the kinds of meanings we make from our perceptions and the internal programming and external behaviors we have set up to explain, predict and make sense of it all – this is what the core of NLP is all about.

The concepts of “submodalities”…

We all have our unique “maps” of reality. We are a complex and unique mix of inborn genetic potential, and the molding effects from the people and experiences of our lives. Science has now proven that emotional and social development is at least equally as important as is the cognative development of the growing infant and toddler, and for adaptability and success later in life.

We humans store the memory of our life experience as sequences and montages of visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory and gustatory representations. When we load up a particular sequence pattern from our memory banks that matches some previous powerful experience – we get to relive the experience of the event or situation (the V’s, & A’s,… that produce the K’s) . These Visual, auditory, kenesthetic, etc sensory systema are the “modalities” in NLP. Each modality has submodalities, which define the characteristics and properties of the information comming from each sensory channel. Visual has brightness, color/B&W, motion/still, fuzzy/clear, degree of transparancy, to name a few. Auditory can be fast/slow tempo, rhythmic, stacatto, loud/soft, tin can/stereophonic,… Kinesthetic can have the full range of emotional experience, but also considers texture, rough/smooth, temperature, impact, duration, subtlety,…

By playing with the adjustments or “volume knobs” of these submodalities, we can dial in different meanings into our brain and neurology that literealy change our experience, and sometimes our memories. It is thought that since the human brain/body being is generally aspiring towards higher evolution, that human neurology often reorganizes itself in resonance with a more elegant way of functioning, when the system is offered a new experience that offers a choice in addition to the old, patterned way of doing things. A skilled practitioner of NeuroLinguistic Programming can help your system have experience of new choices, from which you can incorporate or discard resources, insight and healing.

Replaying old patterns in new ways and adjusting submodalities is a classical NLP methodology for assisting clients be free of problematic habits and phobias. Adjusting submodalities can have the effect of defusing an overwhelming challenge or obstacle. Adjusting submodalities can also increase the pleasure, comfort and value of

NLP in other Therapies

Today, NLP has grown in a myriad of directions – hypnosis and behavioral personal change work, structures of beliefs, modeling personal success and systems of excelence and expertise, business coaching and sales training,… It has been “popularized” and marketed by controversial people such as Tony Robbins. Aspects of it have informed such therapies as EMDR or rapid eye movement and desensitization. People have taken it in spiritual directions, assisting in alignment of personal behaviors and beliefs with a “higher purpose” and connection to the Divine. Some have developed processes to speed healing in hospital settings and to lessen the need for anesthesia during medical procedures. (Anodyne). You can even find internet sites promoting NLP techniques of influence to pick up women. Public speaking, stage fright, parenting skills, allergies, phobias, trauma,… the list of areas where training in Neuro-Linguistic Programming and individual therapeutic work with NLP practitioners is valuable is endless.

Anchoring

When we are experiencing being a particular state, we are also loading up a specific suporting pattern of interconnected neural pathways and circuits that coordinate in specific ways to generate certain specific experiences. The blueprint that guides and coordinates the construction of our experience of life, seems to be clusters of beliefs which are expressed through the secuences and collages of Vs, As, Ks we store in our memory system.

Anchoring is a form of clasical conditioning that associates a specific touch on the arm, or paper napkin on the floor, with the experience of a specific state. The precise spot anchored there after serves as a trigger for that state. Very useful when wanting to add resourceful <stuff/extra resources> to a problematic state.
