''ABC : Awakening Bodily Consciousness- Carlos Jalon'' 


From the beginning of his training in 1985, Carlos Jalon studied a wide variety of massage techniques and body therapies including Swedish and Therapeutic Massage, Aromatherapy, Acupressure and Reflexology, various neuro-muscular techniques and Kinesiology. In India he trained in Chavutti Thirumal, a South Indian Ayurvedic massage using only the feet, as used in Kalari, the oldest martial arts system in the world. Following his interest in human energy systems he qualified in acupuncture. Alongside his many studies and trainings he furthered his own development through Kriya and Hatha Yoga, pathwork on the Kabalistic Tree of Life within the western mystical tradition, metaphysics and rock climbing. After many years of observing people’s habitual and addictive patterns and the

psycho-somatic and emotional damage manifested in bodily systems as a result of abuse and the lack of groundedness, however caused, Carlos evolved his own unique method combining the integrated essences of all that he has studied, experienced, and developed through his healing work.

Carlos will be visiting Dervish again November 12th, 13th and 14th for a reduced 2012 price of €80 for 90mins session and concessions on request. To book a session email Carlos at




''It's Official- Stop Taking Painkillers'' by Dr. Peter Darashah...


Doctors in England & Wales have been advised to stop prescribing painkillers. The reason- over 1 million patients are suffering drug induced headaches and stomach disorders. Thousands of patients rely on prescription painkillers for the relief of pain and discomfort from ailments such as headaches, menstrual cramps, surgery recovery or lingering pain from an injury. Unfortunately for many this reliance on medication can easily and unknowingly turn into physical dependence. The scary fact is that the most commonly prescribed drugs while offering relief from pain, can also cause individual patients to start "needing" the drug in order to feel normal. The result is the new and even more challenging situation of chemical dependency.


Here are the top 10 indicators for drug dependency:


1. Usage Increase

2. Change in Personality

3. Social Withdrawal  

4. Continued unnecessary usage

5. Obsessed about prescriptions

6. Change in Daily Habits and Appearance

7. Responsibilities neglected

8. Increased Sensitivity

9. Blackouts and Forgetfulness

10. Defensiveness


Did you know that Homeopathic remedies as well as being effective lenitives (pain killers) are completely non addictive and side effect free? For further information in order to make a fully informed choice contact:

"From soil to soul…a marriage of Spirit and matter" by Caroline Flavin


To have visited Dev Aura the house of light in the quiet countryside of forest, lush trees, frolicking rabbits and pheasants, was truly a light-filled, colour-full journey, where one could witness the love, light and happiness put into all aspects of Aura-Soma products.


It all starts with the care and attention with which the land of Shire Farm, where many of the herbs and plants (ingredients for Aura-Soma Colour Care products) are grown. Since having purchased the farm, the farming team has been lovingly re-nourishing and re-vitalising what had been an average soil after years of use for cattle and dairy, with a variety of green manures to give life back into the soil. Phacelia is one of the green manures they use which has an extensive root system that improves the soil structure and is very attractive to honeybees, bumblebees and hoverflies- so wonderful for promoting biodiversity. On the farm there is also a gorgeous chakra walk constructed to recharge and give love to the land aswell as receive cosmic energies, with huge, beautiful crystals and standing stones at each chakra point. Water is recharged with Steiner Flow Forms shapes that bring water into a streaming figure eight flow which has a regular heart pulse. When all the pieces are joined together, it makes for an absolute marriage of Heaven and Earth.


Let’s just imagine all companies all over the world putting love, care and intention into every single aspect of their production- and lets chose to support only such companies- and then we can truly begin to access Heaven on Earth! Aura-Soma is truly a marriage of Spirit and matter- experience it for yourself! Contact Caroline on 085 222 7557 for Aura-Soma consultations, talks, courses and products.








''Black Tourmaline – ‘Forward into the New Earth Being’'' by Sinéad De hÓra



As we move forward into the New; grounding and integrating the very high vibrational energies available to us these days can be some challenge for our human selves. In making the transition from the 3rd Dimension into 5th Dimension, greater adaptation and flexibility is required of us than perhaps ever before. So here we need allies; Black Tourmaline is one such ally for these present day challenges.


As we rollercoaster towards the solstice in December our bodies need to stay firmly planted on our Beloved Earth. How can we do this? Firstly accepting our Earth bodies as being an integral part of our Earth experience; whatever growth we make on a vibrational level must be mirrored in our physical body cells. By fully integrating and anchoring these highest Divine frequencies, our DNA – Divine Natural Awareness- may be fully activated and upgraded to ‘New Earth Being’ status.

 "Holy Wells and Healing Water" by Nick Beckman


My previous article finished off with a mythological story about “Mer-Ama”, the Finnish Goddess of Water. Now it’s time to look at some stories from Ireland.

Ireland is surrounded by the sea and is full of lakes, rivers, pools, streams, springs and wells. Throughout history people have prayed to various sea, river and water gods & goddesses. From early Irish Celtic mythology we know off Manannán mac Lir, son of the sea god “Lir” (sea in old Irish). There are the stories of Bóann, Goddess of the river Boyne and Sionnan, Goddess of the river Shannon.

St. Johns well in Carrigaline, Cork.

We also know about Brighid, the Goddess of fire and water, a healing Goddess, which later was ‘adopted’ by Christianity and is the origin of today’s St. Brigid, immortalized by many wells and springs named after her.


This brings us specifically to wells and springs. The old English root word for ‘well’ is wella, wielle, or waella meaning ‘natural spring’ or ‘moving water’. The term ‘holy well’, is commonly employed to refer to any water source, which has some significance in the folklore of the region, legends, pagan history, a Christian saint or a guarding spirit and has healing qualities ...                                                                                                     Click here to read more >>

Products of the Month:  Vetiver Essential Oil,  Thoth Tarot Deck, Om Sanctuary CD, ''Always There for You'' by Pascale Lutz

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

Products of the Month:


Essential Oil of the Month: Roman Chamomile Oil


For anyone that is under stress, is going through a period of depression, loneliness, intense fear or is challenged by anxiety or post traumatic shock disorder, Roman Chamomile Essential Oil can help bring a sense of calm. Roman Chamomile is also a suggested oil for use during times of anger or irritability, and for soothing menstrual cramps.


If you've ever enjoyed a cup of Chamomile tea, you are already familiar with the aroma and sense of calm that chamomile offers. The aroma and sedative effect of the undiluted Roman Chamomile Essential Oil, however, is much more fragrant and powerful. It is known to be especially helpful in combating insomnia, and is one of the few essential oils that most agree is especially safe to use, well diluted, with children. When diffused, it can help to calm irritable babies and soothe a toddler's nasty temper tantrums. Roman Chamomile Oil is also heralded for its anti-inflammatory action. It can be used to help calm inflamed skin and to ease arthritis, headaches, sprains and muscle aches. Available at Dervish for €21.50




Deck of the Month: Labyrinth Wisdom Cards by Tony Christie-NEW!


Access your Inner Wisdom

"The labyrinth is an ancient symbol of wholeness; and the path of the labyrinth represents our journey in life. Labyrinths help us feel centered and balanced, and gain insights into our lives. This deck of labyrinth wisdom cards highlights the symbolism embedded in the labyrinth, and assists you in accessing your inner wisdom. These labyrinth wisdom cards will guide you to finding answers to questions, advice in difficult situations, and encouragement on your path in life. The accompanying handbook contains information about labyrinths, tells you how to use these cards, and provides additional information on the particular aspects of each wisdom card."   New at Dervish €14.99


Tony Christie, based in Cork, Ireland, has been working with the labyrinth since 2005 as a tool for personal and spiritual growth. Part of this work has been on the Labyrinth Wisdom Cards, a 48 card deck that interprets the symbolism and mythology of the labyrinth as a guide for us in our daily lives. See for more info...




CD of the Month: Breathing Winds by Anandmurti Gurumaa


Breathing Winds features comprehensive instructions and guidance for the practice of Nadi Shodhana by revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa. As commonly perceived, Nadi Shodhana is not any breathing exercise, rather it is a unique method to remove the blockages of the nadis in which prana flows. When followed properly as per the given directions, the regular practise enhances awareness of one’s body and mind to a great extent. It brings calmness to the mind and prepares one for the deeper spiritual practices. To facilitate the practise is the amazing music so as to keep the mind with the practice and not entangled in the flow of thoughts. It acts like a guard for the mind to dissuade it from getting distracted. So, follow the instructions and enjoy the practice. Do it persistently to feel the change it brings about in you. Available from Dervish at €12





Book of the Month:''The Mandala Worksbook'' by Susanne F. Fincher


From time immemorial, the mandala has been an expression of inner reality—for individuals, groups, and whole cultures. When you draw or paint a mandala of your own, you’re making a portrait of your unconscious at a particular moment in your life, which when carefully regarded, can provide astonishing insights into your own deepest truth.


The Mandala Workbook offers a complete guide to mandala work, based on the Great Round—the twelve archetypal stages that represent a complete cycle of personal growth. Each stage offers a new way to connect with yourself and to discover the transformative powers of the mandala. Explore a full range of activities throughout the book and for each stage—including coloring, drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, and more—in this engaging and hands-on guide. You’ll have fun doing it—and you may discover things about yourself that will surprise you!
