Projecting Dreams into Reality

Projecting Dreams into Reality by Pashet

Saturday evening in MIND

Enter the dreamers gate with intent and flow through layers of illuminated colour in this meditative visualisation, awaken your heart-mind, breathe and be. I am fascinated by the natural world, how the rhythms of life evolve from sound and how our thought forms stemmed from feelings create our reality.
By layering my mixed media patterns of cosmic nature into moving visuals, a more tangible and immersive experience is born for the viewer’s own journey.

We are Nature

We are Nature – Rewilding Yourself: a panel discussion hosted by Amisha Ghadiali

Sunday 14:00 – 15:30 | MIND

We invite you to join us for this special panel discussion on rewilding ourselves. Drawing on the theme of We Are Nature, you will hear from our inspiring panel Bruce Parry, Charlotte Pulver, Meesh Deeny, Melanie Kelay and Helene Su speak to their journeys and experiences of letting go of some of the chains of modern living, and discovering their wild nature. This session will be hosted by Amisha Ghadiali from the acclaimed “all that we are” podcast. 

We invite you to reconnect with the wisdom of nature. To celebrate the interconnection of all living beings and our planet’s beauty and abundance. To recognise the importance of re-rooting, grounding and opening ourselves to the frequencies, intelligence and infinite potential of life.

We take inspiration from nature’s resilience, the gifts of her cycles and the wisdoms therein. We are all in perpetual cycle, learning and growing through endless spirals, each bringing new beginnings and new life – a steely spark of potential, like the pine cone after a forest fire. Through the rhythm of her cycles, nature teaches us the power of transformation.

In these challenging times, we find great medicine in nature. The wisdom to heal, regenerate and transform our living story.

Last year ‘all that we are’ (formally known as The Future Is Beautiful) collaborated with Noisily to host a We are Nature day event with a guided pilgrimage and powerful panel discussion – listen to the podcast with Amisha, Bruce and Charlotte here

More on your host and speakers

Amisha Ghadiali is host of the globally acclaimed podcast ‘all that we are’. – that explores the weave between activism, the sacred, creativity and regeneration. 

She is the author of Intuition and The Future Is Beautiful. She is an experienced facilitator and has a gift of bringing people into connection with themselves, each other and the earth. She offers Beautiful Leadership mentoring which is one to one work that combines the transformation of deep seated patterns, trauma release and the embodiment of your soul’s calling. She creates brave, tender and inclusive spaces for our hearts unfolding, healing and embrace of our wildness.

Charlotte Pulver is a modern day alchemist and change maker, born into the Pulver lineage of Apothecarians. She has a background in natural healthcare, studying and practising various medical systems of healing for 20+ years, whilst her love is rooted in making medicines for people which she sells through ‘Pulver’s Apothecary’ which she will also be bringing to the area on Saturday and Sunday.

She has been hosting water ceremonies and pilgrimages for many years, is currently writing a book on London’s springs and wells, and helped co-found The Fellowship of the Spring, a group championing water guardianship in the British Isles.

Bruce Parry is best known for his award winning documentaries which followed him living with and learning from remote indigenous peoples around the world. Other series followed him visiting peoples struggling with the effects of globalisation and climate change and the part we all play in these events.  These experiences led him to leave the BBC and direct a feature documentary about humankind’s loss of connection to nature and the effect this is having globally. He has been deeply effected by his travels and is now trying to put into practice some of the lessons he learned over the years, especially influenced by the few remaining egalitarian tribes he has been lucky to meet. He currently lives in Wales.


Meesh Deeny is an Energetic, Somatic Practitioner & Artist. She works with the body and body energetics to bring regulation to the nervous system as well as bringing guidance that allows old wounding, conditioning, beliefs, patterns to be physically and emotionally changed. She spent 13 years of her career working in private practice as a Chiropractor, using mostly Network Spinal Analysis- an energetic light touch technique that creates deep myofascial and therefore, emotional change – alongside Kinesiology, nutritional support and intuitive guidance.

She blends this nearly 2 decades of experience as a practitioner with her intuitive, soft approach, to create sessions that allow a deep letting go within the nervous system, the emotional system and the subconscious mind. Outside of her role as a guide she is a singer and vocal artist, creating meditations, vocal soundscapes and soulful, ancestrally inspired music rooted in her African American and Celtic lineage.


Melanie Kalay is a multi-disciplinary artist, healer & visionary working with the elements of sound, music and movement. Her work weaves techniques and flavours inspired by lineages from Egypt, Tibet, India and ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures, learnings that have been transforming and enriching lives for thousands of years. She formed The Sensory Alchemists, a collective a group of Black/brown, queer and marginalised wellness and creative practitioners, with the intention honouring trauma and grief to bringing joy and pleasure back into our bodies; and changing the face of the wellness industry to create spaces for those that have in the past felt excluded. They practice radical inclusion and exclusion, as well as the decolonisation of yoga and other wellness practices.

Her work invites us to remember organic fluidity and structures of nature, raising vibrations through all the senses to leave you feeling more connected to the Earth, yourself and eachother.

Helene Su is a Dance and Transformational Facilitator, and her work is an invitation for us to remember who we are. Informed by Somatic Movement Education, Classical Dance, Yoga, Subtle Body Energetics, the Tao and the Therapeutic Arts, she has created Niio (New Integrated and Inspired Openings) Dance to empower us to find our authentic, true selves; to be in tune with our body and in flow in our life. In Taoist belief we are like waves in the ocean – there is an essential oneness between us and the world and much of her practice and teachings are informed by nature, dancing with the elements, with the trees, under vast skies.

Her parents are from Hong Kong and China, and as a child growing up in England, she grew up feeling like a misfit, like she didn’t belong, seeking identity. Through dance and nature immersion she has discovered a deep sense of presence and belonging, a journey of freedom and flow that connects our inner realms to our outer world. She shares talks and workshops throughout Europe with the intention of seeding this journey of returning to our bodily intelligence, full vibrant health and joy.



From Fear to Love

From Fear to Love – healing racial division through psychedelic connection with Akua Ofosuhene  

Sunday 10:00 – 11:00 | MIND

4 years ago Akua was shocked to find out that her teenage son had been groomed into a County lines drug dealing ring. The shock and shame brought on depression, high blood pressure and a cancer scare. Although the police, social and youth services organisations  were ‘doing their best’ Akua realised that institutional racism, outdated ideas and a lack of understanding of the cult-like nature of drug dealing rings meant that they could not help get her son out. She had to find a different way.

In this talk Akua shares the healing modalities,  psychedelic medicines and protocols she used to successfully treat herself and eventually her son. 

Akua now talks and advises other parents dealing with the effects of grooming and gang activity. She’s a member of INSCAPE a psychotherapy led psychedelic retreat organisation.

Akua works full time as designer and importer of beauty and artisanal products from Ghana

Earth in Mind: Rethinking Education for Our Future

Earth in Mind: Rethinking Education for Our Future Panel Discussion

Friday 1415 – 1530 | MIND

Exclusively for Noisily, ‘Earth in Mind: Rethinking Education for Our Future’ draws together pioneers who are reimagining education to meet the opportunities and challenges of the 21st Century to engage on a panel on the Mind Stage. 

Much of what has gone wrong with the world is the result of inadequate and misdirected education that:

– Alienates us from life in the name of human domination

– Causes students to worry about how to make a living before they know who they are

– Overemphasizes success and careers

– Dampens creativity

– Separates feeling from intellect, and the practical from the theoretical

– Deadens the sense of wonder for the created world.

The crisis we face is one of mind, perception, and values. It is, first and foremost, an educational challenge. Once we acknowledge and begin to address this seriously, it then becomes an issue of active, effective democracy.

Our format invites dialogue with inspiring innovators and leading thinkers. We provide a ‘hot seat’ for members of the audience who have experience in the field of education to become a part of the conversation.

We hope that guests will leave inspired, informed, equipped, and motivated.

“The fact is that given the challenges we face, education doesn’t need to be reformed — it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.”

– Sir Ken Robinson

Kuṇḍalinī: The Lived Experience, Psychology and Eastern Metaphysics

KUNDALINI: THE LIVED EXPERIENCE, PSYCHOLOGY & EASTERN METAPHYSICS WITH ANN MATHIE 

Ann will explore the lived experience and metaphysical experience of Kuṇḍalinī through the 

lens of Sāṅkhya Philosophy; the metaphysics which underpins most of India’s traditions in 

Yoga and Tantra. To explore this phenomenon further she will investigate yogic texts which 

describe the subtle body model and how this amṛta inducing phenomenon occurs. She will 

mirror these insights with current scientific theories in neurology and physiology.   She will 

also explore the grounds between transcendance and psychosis and the ways in which we 

need to re-examine older psychiatric models of a healthy mind. 

Ann Mathie has been practising yoga and meditation for the past 20 years, exploring 

practices in the Tantric, Yogic and Buddhist field. With a Masters in the Traditions of Yoga and 

Meditation from SOAS University, Ann gives regular talks on the knowledge produced by the 

insights from mediation masters throughout history. Her research focuses on the 

experiences of advanced Buddhist mediators on the path to enlightenment as well as 

phenomenological research on the spontaneous Kuṇḍalinī experience. Her mission is to 

work towards building a world free from a limited view of our human potential and to 

explore methods that alleviate psychological suffering.
