Products of the Month: Essential Oil, Sweetgrass, Rhythm of the Chakras & more

Each month we will feature an essential oil, book, deck, and CD from the shop...

Products of the Month:


Essential Oil of the Month: Grapefruit oil - Citrus paradise

Grapefruit also known as Citrus paradisi has a wonderfully fresh, citrus aroma that is energizing and uplifting. Rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, it is nourishing to the skin and carries with it a distinct sense of cleanliness and purity.


Grapefruit has many potent and beneficial qualities, such as being a powerful anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory and anti-septic detoxifier. It has also being used traditionally as a soul warming anti-depressant that not only enhances the immune system and tones the skin, but can aid in the process of mentally rejuvenation.

It is also used to treat acne, oily skin, cellulite, muscle stiffness, water retention, obesity, colds, flu, depression, headaches, jet-lag, stress and nervous exhaustion.


Traditionally it is an oil used in marriage and commitment ceremonies as well as by those seeking an enriching relationship, symbolising the stripping away of barriers and purifying the path ahead, ensuring that the journey of two can intertwine in both the beauty and blessing of one. Just: €7.00


Herb Feature - Sweetgrass:


Hierochloe Odorata

Many Native American tribes use sweetgrass in prayer and purifying ceremonies and it is considered among one of their most sacred plants. It is usually braided, dried and burned. While burning sweetgrass does not produce an open flame, instead it smoulders and releases a sweet, attractive scent that is said not only to be pleasing to people but that of the good spirits.


Sweetgrass is also used to “smudge”, in which its smoke is fanned on people, objects or about an area to be imbued with its protective insights and divine grace. Traditionally individuals smudge themselves with its smoke, washing the eyes, ears, heart and body.


Sweetgrass is a wonderful companion for sage, giving it a greater depth while promoting both its higher spiritual functions and earthly scent. Sweetgrass Braids: €9.00



Book of the Month: The Source Field Investigations by David Wilcox


The Source Field Investigations is stunning synthesis of hidden science and lost prophecies, modern insight and age old wisdoms. The Source Field Investigations exposes many great secrets such as that of DNA transformation, consciousness science, the physics of wormholes, sacred geometry, multidimensional time, the Maya calendar, and a truly stunning new model of galactic energy fields triggering mental, biological, and spiritual evolution.


Unlike the apocalyptic viewpoints depicted in big-budget disaster films, Wilcock refreshingly believes and gives food for thought that 2012 will be a renewed genesis of a widespread acceptance of a greater reality — and in his book, he lays out many of the blueprints for such a Golden Age.

Most certainly worth a read. Price: €30

Deck of the Month: Mother Peace tarot


Although somewhat well known the Motherpeace Tarot Deck is rarely championed, a mystery which presents itself to anyone who has had the joy of reading and sharing with such a deck.


Created by Viki Noble this deck was designed as a spring board for those who wish to engage and explore the feminine divine, both within the living world and the psyche of the self. The cards are round, a deliberate measure to both express the cycle of creation as well as the role of co-creation in which we partake of in life, seen and unknown. We are, we are told a living, breathing, moving aspect of the great plan and the Motherpeace deck strives to remind us all, that despite our struggles, want of direction and conflicts – we can be not only at peace with each other, but ourselves.


 Most certainly a deck for those wishing to stir the feminist fires and grant fresh light to the forgotten shadows of our own pasts and future, a deck for weaving insight and action into life and putting renewed motion behind old plan. Rustic, enchanting and most of all… beautiful. Just: €35

Animal Insight of the Month:


Orca Whale – Gentle – determined – Instinctive – guiding – playful


but serious in responsibility of role in their group

My keen senses can locate food sources from miles away. Some require different strategies to save me energy and time. Sometimes you can go alone and be exhausted in the chase and so can’t enjoy the feast. Other times working with those of a like mind enables larger catches and though necessary to share the spoils, more energy and time is available for other important pursuits.


Journeying through life is about moving steadily along, getting through the next challenge and reaping the rewards before the next challenge arises. By accumulating wisdom from the lessons learned, the challenges become like a puzzle to work through and knowing them for what they are. Recognising and Being in the challenge brings clarity and an opportunity for the reward to manifest.

Travel the oceans of the world with me and encounter the beauty of form all around. Know that this beauty is also within everyone and is an essential part of the Whole. So, let it shine and touch others as their light reflects back. As the next challenge arrives, know it is a part of the game and smile in anticipation of the prize.

CD of the Month: Rhythm of the Chakras – Glen Velez


When first released this work was considered a somewhat odd conceptual piece, crafted by the master hand drummer Glen Velez and featuring no less than seven percussion-heavy songs designed to stimulate and activate the body's seven chakras. However it is a collection that has stood the test of time and opened up the world beyond the mundane for many blessed enough to enjoy and explore though its rhythm and enchanting vibrations.


Many Eastern spiritual traditions teach that each Chakra, or wheels of energy has its very own unique colour and musical tone which can be stimulated by utilising the associations, we can enhancing the body, clearing the mind and promoting a deeper, more authentic harmony.


Regardless of one’s belief in such philosophies this work is a truly sublime, transcendental album capable of stirring a trance like state that facilitates a deeper, contemplative mood while relaxing the body and lulling away daily tensions. While designed for healing and enriching meditation, it works just as well for those interested in more earthy pleasures. Just €17

August's Articles - Awakening, Heat-induced Headaches, Topaz- Vision of the Future, Colour Breathing with Flowers, Poem from Raj, Making A Friend of Fear, Tibetan Bowls, Blessing the Rain

Each month will feature interesting articles, so do stay tuned...


 ''Awakening'' by Bernadette Phillips M.A., B.SocSc

Both personally and professionally I have become more and more consciously aware of the’ everyday miracles’ happening all round about me. As the magic and wonder reveals the more of itself to my heart and Soul self I am deeply touched by the profundity and beauty that is found in simple everyday things. Such as a cuppa and chat with a good friend, the magic and awesome beauty of a butterfly upon a flower, the wellspring of eternity in a baby’s eyes.  


Making this connection has assisted me so much to find inner peace and capacity, embrace life, cherish that which is truly important in life and see ‘the sacred’ in all things.  Also the practice of meditation for five/ten minutes each day, morning and evening, supports my day both at its start and end. For me the experiences that I encounter in between my daily meditations are greatly enriched by this simple yet utterly profound practice into the depth of my core being...

''Heat-induced Headaches'' by Dr. Peter Darashah...


We all enjoy a day at the picnic, ballpark, or beach--but when we get home we realise we've got a sun-induced headache that just won't go away. Heat from the sun can cause blood vessels in the brain to dilate and raise your skin temperature causing pain. Additionally the sun's glare can also irritate the eyes resulting in head pain. Hot weather is a frequent cause of headache, and may also bring on a migraine in those who are prone. Stress, exhaustion, not eating and drinking regularly – which frequently occur when it is hot - can increase the chance of getting a headache.


Homeopathic Treatments:

Water: Dehydration is one of the main reasons for heat induced headaches. Make sure you are consuming at least 6 glasses of still water/day (excluding beverages/ alcohol).

Belladonna 200C: The #1 remedy for sudden throbbing headache, hot red cheeks and face, dilated pupils, dizziness, confusion, weakness, nausea and quickened pulse. This remedy can stream line your body's efforts to stabilise itself, minimise trauma and speed up recovery.

Ferrum phos 30C: This anti-inflammatory cell salt relieves heat related headaches with throbbing temples and vertex accompanied by weakness and fatigue of an over-taxed body.

Glonone 200C:  sun induced throbbing headache, facial neuralgia & cerebral congestion

Adrenilinum 30C: Works on arterioles to balance blood pressure and reduce constriction

"Colour Breathing with Flowers" by Caroline Flavin


"The soul of the flower is supreme in its giving and spiritual in what it seeks to obtain" - Vicky Wall, founder of the Aura-Soma Colour system.


Encorporate the beautiful energy of Summer flowers into this simple breathing technique to fill you with good vibrations.


Sit comfortably in front of a colourfull vase of flowers. Allow your mind to quieten and focus solely on the scent and beauty of the flowers, noticing their shape, texture and contours. Soften your eyes and gaze at the colour, and as you breathe, pull the colour into your body, feel that you are drawing in this colour on the in-breath, breathing it in fully, infusing every single one of your cells with its light, beauty and vitality. Orchids and Aura-Soma Balance Bottles                            Breathe out any staleness or anything you wish to

let go of.
Continue to breathe the colour in deeply and keep the good feeling with you for the day. Put a vase of colourfull flowers near your bed or in a visible area when you wake up. Buy some flowers of the colour that you think you need most: Red- energy, drive, passion; Orange –sensuality, creativity, emotional stability; Yellow – strength, will power, centredness; Green- balance, harmony; Blue – peace, communication; Indigo – transformation, transmuting negativity; White – cleansing, purity.


Caroline loves to share the beauty, colour and light of Aura-Soma at Dervish.

''Topaz – Vision for the future'' by Sinéad De hÓra


Aligned with the Sun and long associated with the warmth and fire of life, Topaz holds within it a view to our future and our pathway into the 5th Dimension. Perhaps it is time to part the clouds here in Ireland and find alternative sources of light to bask in and inspire us forward in our evolution.


The name Topaz has several possible roots. The most metaphorical being ‘Topazos’ – meaning ‘to

Blue Topaz echoing the hexagonal shape of the                seek’, derived from the fog-bound Topazion

DNA molecule - Crystalline Times                                       island of the Red Sea, where Topaz was first

mined (now named St. Johns Island). The word ‘Tapaz’ meaning ‘fire’ in Sanskrit, sets us sail on the transformative powers of Golden Topaz (Imperial Topaz)– beaming through with the radiance of the Sun, stimulating power and passion, impelling us to be as victorious warriors of positive action and direction. As our minds and spirits are quickened upward and forward, we trail-blaze the way ahead within personal and collective consciousness.

''Tibetan Bowls'' - Workshops with Connecting Within


Some of you may be acquainted with the Tibetan bowls, which are ancient handmade brass instruments from the Himalaya region. These bowls are known to produce some of the most amazing results in sound healing as they use harmonic tones, that seem to talk to our body in a more efficient and deeper way than any other musical instrument, attaining our physical , etheric and auric bodies.


What we know from many years of working with them and from available research is that these instruments used with mastery, can go deep inside our bodies and interact in an efficient manner with our energy centers, freeing up blockages in the physical, emotional and spiritual spheres. The Tibetan bowl is a very specific instrument crafted more than a hundred years ago, and is very different in its use from any other existing type of bowl. Each bowl is a unique piece, with unique properties, and requires training and mastery to be used to its full potential. At connecting within, we have gathered experience and knowledge in using the bowl as a relaxation, deep release and deep healing tool for many years.


We organise regular workshops to teach this knowledge in Galway, Dublin and Cork.

For more information, please see our website or tel: 087 998 2303.

''Blessing the rain'' from Diana Cooper's own Newsletter


''We’ve seen plenty of it this year in the UK as it is cleansing the energy here.  The trees, that have been looking quite dejected and despondent, are really perking up as the rain washes them and clears old energy that they have been absorbing. 


The undines are the water elementals who work with the rain under the elemental master Neptune.  They are overseen by Poseidon.  The rain will transmute and cleanse anyway but if we bless the water, it will rise to the fifth dimension and raise the frequency of everything it touches. 

This means your plants will radiate fifth dimensional energy, the lawn and trees and the ground itself where the rain has soaked in.  It makes a difference.  In addition if we connect with the elementals and elemental masters the rain will purify gently and easily, gracing us rather than battering us!  This is yet another way you can help and serve others.

In this section of the newsletter we'll be featuring some of the events going on and around Cork..stay tuned..

Kriya Yoga Program Cork

Silent Retreat in Cuskinny Court: 31st July - 3rd August

City Initiations: 3rd - 5th August 2012


Kriya Yoga is an ancient method of living and meditation that cultivates body, mind, intellect, and awareness of the soul using powerful meditative and yogic disciplines. It helps us to experience the three divine qualities of light, vibration, and sound by using techniques of concentration, posture, and breathing. This develops a one-pointed mind, which enables us to penetrate the deepest levels of consciousness and to change our lives. Kriya Yoga teaches that any action, kri, is done by ya, the indwelling soul. It is a universal spiritual discipline that crosses all divisions and boundaries.
