Tantra Maat Returns to Dervish Cork October 8-10, 2012 at Dervish

Tantra, as a catalyst, a mystic, and a seer, provides you an opportunity to shift into a powerful alignment with what you came to be, do, and have. Each consult anchors your expansion into the freedom of your own design and opens you up into your awareness of your unique place in the wondrous web of life. The initial consult awakens your cellular memory of your true relationship with life and activates the stamina to be with what is before you. In follow up consults, your cellular memory continues to rise and gain more stamina to be what you came here to be.


In these individual sessions, you gain access to both your personal and energetic capability to stay awake and lively during the massive shifts that are happening.


Consults are 40 minutes during my Ireland visit.

Initial consult: €120 Euro

Existing client: €80 Euro

You will receive a CD of your session.


In-Person Activations with Tantra

In-Person Activations work with your physical plane, shifting the cellular remembrance so you are no longer trauma-armored. Trauma-based armoring prevents you from being fully related to the truth and richness of your life.


The thirty minute Activations restore and rejuvenate your natural shielding that has been damaged or destroyed by trauma. This restored and innate natural energy field rises and filters out what is 'life defeating' and lets in what is 'life enhancing'. You awaken the you that came to create. The Activations are done in silence and on a massage table.

The activation sessions are 30 minutes for €72 Euro.


For Cork consults, please schedule with Sapphire before September 24th, 2012, by emailing or calling 001-614-940-1667. Sapphire is available by phone after 6pm Irish time, Monday through Friday.  


Bernadette Phillips Clairvoyant

Clairvoyancy, Angel Guidance Readings, Palmistry, Numerology& Intuitive Spiritual Coaching

August's Articles - Hahnemann: Father of Homeopathy, Autumnal Colours and our True Colours, Emerald Renewal & Redirection, , Transference Healing and Our Divine Ascension Process, Essential Emotions

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


''Hahnemann: Father of Homeopathy'' by Dr. Peter Darashah...


The first of three Homeopathic Journeys start around 1790 with Samuel Hahnemann an impoverished young medical doctor translating medical journals into his native German. One such journal was written in English by a Scotsman called Dr Cullen in which he records the healing power of the cinchona bark drug over malaria. Quite why it made such an impression on the young Hahnemann is not recorded but perhaps the fact that malaria was the greatest disease in the world at that time had something to do with it. (Incidentally it is still the number one disease in the world today according to the WHO. We have come a long way in 200 years!!). Anyway Hahnemann decided to experiment by taking some of the cinchona drug himself. He was amazed when he succumbed to violent symptoms of malaria. Here was a drug which was supposed to cure but instead it had caused the very disease it was reputed to cure. In trepidation Hahnemann took some more and was greatly relieved to find that the symptoms then abated. Dumbfounded but thinking the experience an aberration he repeated the experiment twice more with similar results.

Thus was born in Hahnemann’s mind the germs of the first Natural Law of Similars. Join us to discover the journey that led to the discovery of other natural laws as well as the founding of the medical practice of Homeopathy which today (200 years after the epoch making experiment with cinchona) enjoys its role as the second most popular medical modality in the world (next to conventional medicine).


Join Dr Peter on a virtual journey through the Homeopathic countryside exploring the

Three Natural Laws of Nature. All journeys start at 11am at Dervish Holistic Centre, Cork

and are FREE. Sat Sep 29th - Journey 1: The Natural Law of Similars.

"Autumnal Colours and our True Colours" by Caroline Flavin


As we slowly enter the Autumn when the trees will don a multitude of colours in a final explosion before the colours subsequently drain from the countryside, it's a great time to infuse your life with colour and keep your own light and aura strong, intact and bright.


Light affects both the physical and etheric bodies. Colours generate electrical impulses and magnetic currents or fields of energy that are prime activators of the biochemical and hormonal processes in the human body- the stimulants or sedatives necessary to balance the entire system and its organs. [Colour Medicine- Charles Klotsche]


Absorbing the colour and wavelengths of Aura-Soma Balance bottles helps us to balance our chakras and whole endocrine system. Aura-Soma also provides an opportunity to reveal the depths of our inner selves and the higher aspect of our Soul's mission and purpose. It allows us to see our ''true colours'', and then to absorb these wavelengths of true colour into the body. If you would like to learn more and experience Aura-Soma for yourself, then come to the Aura-Soma Colour Introductory Day here in Dervish on Saturday September 8th. 8 week course on colour and the chakras begins Tuesday Sept 25th

''Emerald - Renewal and Redirection'' by Sinéad De hÓra


These last months we have seen much growth and plenty in all of the greenery around us, the Kingdom of Nature is wide awake! Now, as we reach further into the cycle of the seasons, are we feeling right and ready for Autumn? Well, if you haven’t found space during the summer months for reevaluation, then not to worry, all is well, the heartfelt energies of Emerald are here to guide you home.


Within Emerald are held many inclusions; Jewellers call these inclusions ‘jardin’ (garden) because of a likeness to a meadow growing inside the crystal.

Emerald holds space for you much like a garden. In this garden there is alignment with the Plant Kingdom and there is alignment with space, rather than form. Space that allows you to feel your inner body and your inner world, a space of unconditioned consciousness where you can access great creativity and truth ...

''Transference Healing and Our Divine Ascension Process'' - by Sinead O' Sullivan


The global spiritual community is in agreement that the Earth and human body are currently experiencing a divine ascension process. From 1999 to 2012 we have been in a vital time of transition from a 3rd to 5th dimensional frequency, consciousness and reality.  Science and spirituality are uniting and there are a great many documented changes and trends, in addition to much scientific evidence to support the fact that we have indeed been in this transition period.  Such scientifically observable energetic changes include the movement of the magnetic lines and poles of the Earth, dramatic increases in electromagnetic frequencies, increased cosmic activity including unprecedented solar flare activity and their associated magnetic tidal waves, bizarre weather changes, severe weather patterns and natural disasters.


Human beings are not just physical in nature; we are complex multi-dimensional energetic beings with a complex, geometric, etheric template or blueprint underlying and sustaining us and regulating the automatic function of the body's self-healing system.  For this reason, the energetic changes of the Earth and Cosmos are co-creating alchemical changes within matter and light, which in turn is changing the fundamental make-up of our body, consciousness, planet and reality as a whole.

Sinead O'Sullivan is available for face to face and absentee healings on children, adults, animals and businesses. Sessions typically last 90 minutes and  cost €75. To make an appointment call 087 7734444 or email




''Essential Emotions'' by Gerry Browne


Our feelings and physical state are wake-up calls to the blocks in our energy field. Using emotions to guide us through our journey is a peaceful way of gaining freedom. We have been taught for many years that ''big boys don't cry''. Labels are placed on us like ''drama queens'' or we are told we are ''over-emotional''. Essential emotions believe that emotional ignorance and denial are two main functions in the sadness and trauma of life freeing our emotions from us and open us to the gift of every day. Judgement, criticism and other peoples' needs can block and control us. We can create our own new dawn with emotional maturity and self-belief.
