Discovering Stillness

Discovering Stillness through Music & Self-Inquiry with Niall McGuigan

Friday 1915 – 2045 | SOUL

Niall McGuigan is a touring musician and music therapist from Ireland, sharing stories about self-discovery, spirituality, and self-inquiry. Currently living in the Netherlands and working with the GGZ in the area of forensic music therapy, he also works freelance producing workshops, voicework, story-telling & live music performances. .

His own ethos aligns with that of Noisily, and as such his workshops which are based in the discovery of our true nature and ourselves as nature, fits perfectly within our program.

The aim of this workshop is to provide participants with the space to recognize their true nature as awareness. To recognise that they are already awake and that through the process of self-inquiry we can learn to recognise the patterns and movements of the psychological mind that keep us in a dream state. Through the messages of the songs and storytelling, participants can experience an internal space, the inner world, and an embodied understanding of how self-inquiry can help bring more freedom and peace into their lives.

Five Elements Five Senses

Getting in touch with the Five Elements through the Five Senses with John Hughes

Saturday 1215 – 1315 | SOUL

“The present moment is always lit, because it is the presence of The Absolute”

We all know that clocks exist, but time doesn’t and that life can only be lived ‘now’, but how exactly can we fully embrace the present moment and thereby come into the light of The Self?

During the workshop we will explore the 5 gross elements and their relationship with the 5 physical senses. Using a potent and powerfully simple mix of analogy, guided meditation and ‘zen walking’ around the immediate space, participants will be literally ‘brought to their senses’ and will leave the workshop feeling a greater sense of clarity and connection.

The Headless Way

The Headless Way with Richard Lang 

Friday 1330 – 1500 | SOUL

The Headless Way is growing in popularity as an astonishingly simple way to notice fundamental truths about your experience, which for some people can be both thrilling and liberating. In a series of deceptively simple experiments and awareness exercises, you will have the chance to see for yourself what mystics throughout the ages have pointed to.

The experiments were developed by the philosopher Douglas Harding, who wrote: “Though in essence the same as Zen, Sufism, and other spiritual disciplines, this way proceeds in an unusually down-to-earth fashion.” The Headless Way claims you are more likely to see who you really are in a few minutes of experimentation than in years of reading, meditation or traditional spiritual practise.

It uses a variety of simple, non-verbal, fact-finding tests, all of them asking: how do I look to myself?

Richard has been sharing The Headless Way around the world for more than 50 years. He is dedicated to making this direct method of seeing our Original Nature as widely available as possible. He looks forward to being at Noisily and sharing this Way with anyone who is interested.

Encountering Our Selves

Encountering Our Selves – voice Dialogue with Aaron and Rosa Sefi

Friday 1730 – 1900 | SOUL

We have many distinctly different selves, or voices, which need conscious unification in order to experience the peace and harmony we all seek.

Join us in this deep dive into the world of selves if you wish to recognise and befriend your conscious ‘primary’ selves and bring to consciousness those selves which you have disowned along your path.

We will begin with present awareness practices, and navigate the explorations as safely as possible.

There will be opportunity to map out your own unique constellation of selves, before beginning to dialogue with some of those voices that usually get little airtime. We will end with focus time on your intentions for your noisily journey!

Rosa is an integrative humanistic psychotherapist and Aaron is a trained counsellor and researcher in psychotherapy. They have been walking and talking and getting lost and found together for over twenty years and have a particular interest in psychedelic assisted therapy.

A Modern Mystery School Workshop

A Modern Mystery School Workshop (£20) With Carl H. Smith, Sarah Janes, Sam Gandy, Pascal Immanuel Michael and Chris Timmermann | Saturday 13:30 – 15:00 | SOUL

Capacity – 30

Modern life has become increasingly full of distraction, of mental and physical pollutants. The many lessons we learn during our lifetime can be hampered by our perceived social responsibilities, our cravings, delusions, ambitions and our inability to prioritise self-reflection over our appearance in the visible world. There are ever increasing incidents of ‘early onset’ and ‘digital’ dementia in younger populations as a result of the zombifying effect of excessive screen time. Disengagement from the world around us is having a deleterious impact on memory and cognitive functioning – we are meant to be in harmony with the natural world. 

How might we manage our lives to live better and more consciously, to be more certain of who we are, our motivations and to discover true contentment and peace? What gives life meaning? 

In the Mystery tradition of antiquity – initiation was a ritualised, contained and sanctified mid-life crisis or Near-Death Experience of sorts. It is attested to in many accounts of those who passed through the Mystery Schools, that by accepting the inevitability of death, initiates released their fear of mortality and came to relish the fleeting beauty of their life, to feel the divine breath of the universe as it reverberates through every thread of the web of life. 

Many of us find that peace and acceptance come with age and increasingly, that they follow crisis and breakdown. Has this always been the case, or is this a symptom of the dis-harmony within our society? Stripping the human experience of spirit and soul – as has been the effect of reductive materialism – has diminished the human experience to the working parts of something like a meat robot. We need our transcendent moments of divinity, our dreams, we need liminal, transpersonal experiences to truly thrive, love life and taste the ecstasy of its preciousness. We need spiritual experience to be truly human. 

In the tradition of initiation, the first step is to find a mentor – The Seventh Ray – can take the place of a mentor, curating subjective experience. Giving the participant an opportunity for the sort of self-reflection required for personal growth, integration and emotional development. 

The Seventh Ray team will take participants through the seven stages of initiation – utilising ancient and modern technologies to bring about a pantheistic appreciation of nature and self.

In times of widespread use and commercial interest in psychedelics, there is an urgency to develop lineages associated with their use. Lineages and forms of embodied knowing not only enhance safety but may also harness their potential for transformation. Mystery schools, and their use of ritual provide such forms of apprenticeship. How does a modern Mystery School relate to past iterations of psychedelic apprenticeship? How does it dialogue with indigenous forms of embodied apprenticeship? What can be gained from the dialogue between indigenous and Western technologies for human development?


Cacao Ceremony, Voice Activation & Song Circle

Cacao Ceremony, Voice Activation & Song Circle with Lani Rocillo

Sunday 13:00 – 14:30 | SOUL | £20

To be able to freely express our voice as we are is a profound remembrance of how we can be in every day life. 

The  voice is our unique soul signature that has an innate capacity to access and release energetic blocks embedded in the cellular memory.  When the Voice is given space for intuitive expression, our ilife force naturally increases and our inborn creative gifts rises to be realised.  The participants will be guided to intimately attune to their inner process and voice what is being felt in the living moment.  This is a powerful practice within a safe space that encourages embodied presence, authentic expression and deep self-connection.

After the practice, we will flow into a beautiful sharing of hearts and songs.

The ceremony will involve a sacred cacao ceremony, where we drink a rich brew of the plant Cacao. A plant medicine that powerfully opens the heart and attunes us to our feeling body – restoring emotional balance, heightening sensory perception and freeing creative expression.

The Cacao we will be communing with comes from Guatemala, lovingly grown and shared by the guardians of the Tz´utujil Mayan tribe.
