Be Held – Compassionate Stress Reduction

September 22nd 2019

By Ginger Pai and Selda Soul

Be Held’ workshops focus on providing a safe space for you to feel nurtured, supported by a sense community and learn practical tools to help you cultivate a kinder, more connected, courageous and joyful life. We encourage a relaxed, informal and welcoming atmosphere for all, where everything is offered as an invitation. We like to include time for tea or lunch/dinner at longer events when possible.


‘Be Held for compassionate stress reduction’ will be presented in collaboration with Selda at her beautiful studio – Selda Soul Space in South East London, UK.


During the first half of our workshop Carly will be guiding you through some simple and gentle practices. Selda and Carly will then offer the space for a little sharing. Selda will complete the afternoon with a compassion focussed guided relaxation and blissful sound healing with the beautiful crystal bowls and closing.

Selda works as a soul guide, offering trusting spaces for people to rediscover their true essence. Her passion lies in working with sound and light as forms of healing. Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls emit a pure cosmic sound that expands into a multitude of vibrant overtones. Through sound, vibration and intent they assist in clearing blockages, rewiring brain chemistry, activating chakras and elevating our state of consciousness to ever more refined levels. Selda believes that compassion is at the heart of life’s teachings.
