October - November 2011
Living in Singapore, the change of season may not be so obvious. The leaves are not turning golden red and the air is not getting a crisp coolness. Even without these external signs, we do still feel the difference.
September was a busy month, with everyone returning from their summer vacation and readying their kids for back to school. It can be a hectic time. New school. New class. New friends. Being caught up in the change, we can sometimes lose the focus on our needs. Now that everyone is back to their schedule, it's a good time to re-group, to check where we are as we approach the end of another year.
The fall is perfect for reflection, a time for nourishing ourselves to prepare for the winter. Being in rhythm with the seasons is important for us to stay healthy and in harmony. Being in the flow allows us to open up to the gifts of life.
We may already be in October but Gallery Helios has a lot of workshops and courses planned. For ladies only, heads up we have a surprise for you in November.
We look forward to seeing you at Gallery Helios.

Reflections on Light and Shadow
Where can we run to where the shadow can't follow? Only to total darkness, the shadow's own domain.
Only when we allow light to illuminate does the shadow get thrown into sharp relief, and we recognize it for what it is, a companion and reflection of our light. ~ Siewfan Wong
|Himalayan Singing Bowl Workshop|
with Antoinette Biehlmeier
Sound therapy is a powerful way to heal and the vibrations of a singing bowl are a beautiful and gentle way to release energetic blockages.
Himalayan singing bowls are made with 7 different metals and can produce up to five different individual tones, audible at the same time. Their harmonic tones guide the brain into alpha and theta frequencies, known to induce a clear mind, a deep meditative state and inner peace. Sound therapy can also reduce muscle pains and tension, balance the left and right sides of the brain and harmonize our heart rate, thereby optimizing our well-being.
Imagine throwing a pebble into the clear still water of a pond. Before it settles, the stone will create ripples on the surface.
Our body is about 75% water. The vibrations from a singing bowl can easily travel through layers upon layers of disharmony, to deep within our body, to the core of the imbalance and dis-ease. Our body is energetic vibrations and we are wired to respond to sound.
In this weekend workshop we will use singing bowls to restore harmony and discover inner silence.

|Emotional Freedom Technique |
DeepDive EFT with Siewfan Wong
This DeepDive EFT workshop is for new comers as well as those who have some previous experience of EFT, kinesiology or other Energy Psychology techniques. This is also an interesting technique for coaches who want to take the next step in helping clients resolve their emotional issues quickly and painlessly.
The term DeepDive refers to a deep exploration of the psyche. DeepDive modalities are geared towards taking a client through life transitions and difficulties, towards the realization of the ESSENTIAL self or liberated self (level 1 in the language of the Enneagram). It entails working through shadow issues and integrating into the TRUE self. While EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is an energy psychology technique that can be used for phobias, trauma, addiction, compulsive behaviours etc., it can also be integrated into DeepDive coaching to quickly release any values, beliefs and energy blocks that are no longer helpful to the client.
In this workshop, we will learn the basics, and then try other interesting variations including:
- Various Aspects Technique
- Image Management
- Creating Positive Mind States
- Affirmation Tapping
- Enneagram Personality Types
- and other tips and techniques from other healing fields.
Date: Saturday & Sunday, 4th & 5th November
Time: 9.45 am to 6.00 pm
Fees: S$500 (includes 1 free 60 min private session worth $150)
Capacity: 12 participants, no prior experience required.
| Feedback vs Failure |
NLP in Action by Simon Wong
The way you give meaning to an experience will determine the way you respond in the future.
In the process of moving towards your outcome you will invariably experience results that are not moving you towards what you expect. When you experienced this result and begin to label it as failure then your next response will likely to be negative towards your outcome. It will literally stop you on your tracks! Read more.
| Essential Oil Discovery|
The Unique Features of Essential Oils
Essential oils are unique and because of their complex structure, they have effects on the physical, emotional and mental levels.
Essential oils can pass through our skin easily and can diffuse through the body in less than one hour. When we breathe in the scent, the olfactory bulb carries the oil molecules into the area of the brain where our emotional memory is stored. This is why essential oils can affect our moods.
Nature's gifts, essential oils are powerful and their uplifting, purifying, energizing and calming properties have been known for thousands of years.
