Urban Avatars

Mixed Spiritual Arts



Diahann and Felix co-founded Urban Avatars to share the riches of, what they term the "mixed spiritual arts" through their own unique union and to inspire and unite a community of people ready to deepen into the magic of themselves.

Over the last 14years they have been blessed to attract people from all over the world to participate in their work - which draws on their in depth studies and experiences of Yoga, Martial Arts, Shamanism, Plant Medicines, Western Psychology and various other spiritual traditions.

What they deliver is a down-to-earth, often deeply transformational translation through their workshops, 1-1 healing sessions and art. At the core of it all their intention is to weave love, healing and empowerment within their community and beyond.

22 - 29 March 2021

Check in: 2pm on Sunday 22

A deep, soul nourishing upgrade, over 7 full days in the jungles of magical Bali.

We'll create the space for rest, rejuvenation, healing and activation - harnessing the manifesting magic of the Spring Equinox to seed our highest visions and dreams together in paradise.

Our ethos is always connection. And so, during this once in a lifetime retreat we'll be dropping into practices that explore deep inner union and peaceful balance. We'll explore the powerful dance of yin & yang, masculine & feminine on this fun, replenishing, and transformational journey.

Held within the abundant, life giving jungles of Bali, we're offering you a totally unique UAMSA style journey. One that will leave you feeling refreshed and inspired, strong and connected.

We will honour the land, peoples, planet and ourselves through daily ritual practice and offer you a medicine bag of tools you can take away to support you in your day to day life.

Our Home

We are very lucky to be hosted within a beautiful, eco-conscious, private villa which is close, but just outside of the magical buzz of central Ubud.

Backing onto an undisturbed valley, fringed by rice fields and lush gardens - our idyllic eco-lux home is a hidden gem! A truly serene home, with abundant charm and elegant suites for a private and restful stay.

You'll have access to an exquisite swimming pool overlooking the jungle, infrared sauna, beautiful shala and plenty of space to lounge indoor and out.

Please note: NO EXPERIENCE is required for any of the above. Just an open heart. Also know that everything is OPTIONAL.
Our intention is for you to deeply honour your personal journey and to get the most out of the retreat.

BONUS!!

Whilst here we are very lucky to have the honour of celebrating one of Bali's most sacred days, 'Nyepi" - Balinese New Years. On Nyepi Eve you will have the opportunity to participate in local ceremonies and celebrations where spectacular parades are held to banish bad energies from the land.

And the following day we'll join the rest of the country honouring a meditative Nyepi, which is a time to stay at home, meditate, give thanks and reflect on the coming year ahead.

It's no coincidence, we feel that this is happening during our retreat and give thanks for the alignment and blessing!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Ithaca - an exquisitely beautiful, mythical Greek island in the crystal Ionian Sea for 7 days of inspiration, transformation and deep rejuvenation.

I had a soul deep calling to create this retreat.

A retreat specially for women ready to step into their strong, majestic truth.

During this time you will explore the depths of your inner freedom and the strength, power and courage to be YOU in all your glory. An opportunity to get clear on visions and dreams that are truly calling your soul and through the practices we share, will experience what a deeply embodied sense of self-worth, purpose and “soul fire” can feel like for you!

And all of this set within a cosy, luxurious and inspirational home and landscape, that will enable you to deepen into the wonderment of You.

There’s never been a better time than now to harness all that you are and RADIATE.

To deeply honour your sacred feminine and share with the world what it means to be a truly empowered woman, living her authentic truth. We really believe it is the biggest gift we can offer to ourselves and the planet.

Our intention for this time together, is to create an nourishing, awakening, and empowering experience for you.

Together we’ll create your own personal tool kit of practices to take away with you.

SUN 8TH SEP || 3-7pm

We warmly welcome you to an evening of Rebirth.

On July 21st as we make the astrological shift out of the sign of Cancer and into Leo we will consciously work to release deep seated energies that no longer align with our truth and create the space inside to welcome the new.

We’ll begin with a gentle yoga and qigong practice to open the body and then a deep rebirthing breathwork session, followed by a soothing sound healing journey to integrate and seal the experience.

++++++++++++

Rebirthing Breathwork is a conscious, connected body/breath technique which activates an expanded awareness physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Through the circular breathing technique this awareness allows thoughts, feelings, physical pains and energies that have been held down with the breath, to surface and be released, cleared or resolved. The process ultimately frees up energy in the being to bring about a greater sense of aliveness, joy, fulfilment and connection.

The space will be safely held by Rebirthing practitioner Damian and his wife Kara, alongside experienced healing practitioners and spaceholders Diahann and Felix. You will be supported throughout the entire process.

We will end with a closing circle and some light refreshments.

Please note, there will be limited spaces for this more intimate event so book as soon as possible.

We are here to answer any queries you may have.

CHRIST LIGHT CEREMONY - Easter Sunday

Today is a special opportunity to tap into that full power, Avatar Christ consciousness!

Whether we consciously believe in the story of Jesus or not, what it symbolises is the potential and power of “light” within the human soul and our capacity to rise like the Phoenix.

Today’s resurrection is an invitation to wake up once more to the truth of who we are - aka high vibrational beings of light transmitting the frequency codes of pure love, kindness, generosity, and healing transformation. Yup.

Today is the day to re-member and honour the miracle maker within.

To remember the ever present cycle of death and rebirth that keeps us in constant renewal and growth.
To surrender and trust that change is growth.
That when we allow things to release in our lives, something new is born. YESS!!

So...

How do we want to be reborn in this phase of our evolution?

How do we want to live going forward?

What do we want to experience?

Here's a simple ceremony you can follow to elevate your heart and mind as we tap into Christ consciousness:

SACRED SPACE

First set up your sacred space.
Find a quiet place in your home or garden to spend 10+ minutes.
Create an altar - a centre place to focus your ritual. It could be a simple as a candle.
Or feel free to add any ceremonial elements that carry meaning for you. An effigy, a photo, oracle cards - as well as elemental pieces from nature - water, sacred herbs, crystals, feathers, flowers, foliage.

(Don't stress if you don't have any of the items - a quiet space and your focused intention will do!)


CLEANSE

Cleanse your energy field: burn sacred herbs, incense, resins or use a cleansing water like rose, agua da Florida or pure water with an essence of your choice (clap it between your hands brush it over your body with the intention of sweeping through any stale, stagnant energy).

INTENTION

Set the intention to open to receive and awaken the Christ light consciousness within you.

To remember what if feels like to be pure potential.

To feel the fullness of the heart - of love, kindness, compassion, generosity for self and others.

To have the power to rise from the ashes and perform miracles as the miracle you are.


INVOCATION

Invite in any soul guides, helping ancestors, spiritual guardians of the land you’re on, any energies and archetypes you resonate with.
It could simply be your higher self/intelligence.

Jesus, Isis, Osiris, Ishtar, Adonis, Eostara, Adonis, Dionysus - also represent resurrection for example.
But whomever or whatever high beings in your team are welcome.

If you have a drum or a rattle play them now to call in your support network, otherwise simply close your eyes and repeat along the lines...

“I call upon and give thanks to all those spiritual guides here to support me in this awakening today”. (Then name each one and the quality they bring into your life).
You can also honour the elements and 7 directions at this point.


From here your ceremony can take shape in in whatever way you choose - contemplative meditation, song, mantra, an invocation dance - the idea is to bring in and awaken the Christ consciousness within you.

If you’d like some guidance, here’s a simple ritual...

RITUAL

Play some beautiful music that allows you to connect with your heart.

Either seated or standing become consciously aware of your breath for a few moments to focus your energy.

Then bring awareness to your heart centre.
Imagine breathing directly in and out of this inner temple space.
Feel the flow of oxygen fill the space with light as you inhale, and settle you into a grounded awareness as you exhale.

Imagine a pillar of this light reaching down from the heart through the lower chakras to the core of the Earth - A channel for both receiving the healing energies of Mother Nature Gaia and for releasing any energies that you no longer need, to be composted by the Earth.

Inhale and draw up the warm, grounded presence of the Earth’s core through your root pillar and into your heart. And as you exhale an ascending channel of glistening light beams up from the heart and out through the crown of your head.

Get a sense that you are now centred between grounded, downward, and elevating upward spiralling energies.

Through this open channel above now sense the Great central sun/son and the Christ light swelling within it.

Feel the full power vibration of pure, unconditional love, the ultimate force of creation radiating from its core.
And when you sense it, imagine it streaming down through the central pillar into your body and spreading throughout your being, igniting every cell with the consciousness of pure love and compassion.

Imagine a continual stream of this energy flowing in and fortifying your mind, body and soul with the strongest force of nature there is - Love (feel free to move or remain still - your body will tell you what it wants to do).

When full of love we become brave.

We live and move from the heart and magnetise high vibe experiences.

Let love reign down on you right now.

Let it blaze through the veils of illusion that have been masking who you truly are.

Let it heal your body and dissolve any fears that you’re not capable, worthy, deserving, gifted.

Let it uplift and remind you that in every moment you have the opportunity to change your vibe - to ascend from challenging experiences/cycles and remember the strength of spirit within to rise up.

You might imagine this light as tiny particles, neutrinos streaming down, or one magnificent beam of glistening light.

However you intuitively sense this energy is perfect.

CLOSE & GROUND

When you feel full and complete come to close your ceremony.

At this point you may wish to journal any inspirations or downloads that came through, or set some clear intentions moving forward.

Next give thanks for all the energies that have supported you. Name each in turn or group them as a whole if short on time.

Most importantly make sure that you ground yourself to root back into your body.
Plug in to the Earth either energetically, imaging roots extending down or literally place your feet and hands on the Earth to discharge any energy that might need to be released.

If you can, keep your altar set up until you’re ready to change it.
See it as a ever metamorphosing prayer, bringing focus to what it is you want to call into your life.

And now trust the process.
Any shifts that need to happen will do in perfect timing!
We live in a benevolent universe and love always prevails...

Would love to hear how you get on with this!

Big Love!
Diahann

LIONSGATE CEREMONY 08/08

According to numerous wisdom traditions each year on 8/8 a stream of accelerated solar energies become available to support our spiritual awakening.

This portal or “Star Gate” gives us access to high vibrational frequencies or light codes from our Central Sun Sirius (which enters Orion’s belt and lines up perfectly above the pyramids in Giza) that activate our evolutionary unfolding.

This is a time to release deeply held fears, wounds and karmic imprints and to harness the courageous energies of the fierce but compassionate lioness (think the Egyptian lion-headed goddess Sekhmet) to see through your healing and stepping into your power.

Here's a simple ceremony you can follow to elevate your heart and mind as we tap into these energies:

SACRED SPACE

First set up your sacred space.
Find a quiet place in your home or garden to spend 10+ minutes.
Create an altar - a centre place to focus your ritual. It could be a simple as a candle.
Or feel free to add any ceremonial elements that carry meaning for you. An effigy, a photo, oracle cards - as well as elemental pieces from nature - water, sacred herbs, crystals, feathers, flowers, foliage.

(Don't stress if you don't have any of the items - a quiet space and your focused intention will do!)


CLEANSE

Cleanse your energy field: burn sacred herbs, incense, resins or use a cleansing water like rose, agua da Florida or pure water with an essence of your choice (clap it between your hands brush it over your body with the intention of sweeping through any stale, stagnant energy).

INTENTION

Set the intention to open to receive the light codes of Sirius and our central Sun and awaken to your highest potential.

To remember what if feels like to be pure potential.

To feel the fullness of the heart - of love, courage compassion and vibrancy.

To have the power to self-heal and transform on an exponential level.

INVOCATION

Invite in any soul guides, helping ancestors, spiritual guardians of the land you’re on, any energies and archetypes you resonate with.
It could simply be your higher self/intelligence.

Whomever or whatever high beings in your team are welcome.

If you have a drum or a rattle play them now to call in your support network, otherwise simply close your eyes and repeat along the lines...

“I call upon and give thanks to all those spiritual guides here to support me in this awakening today”. (Then name each one and the quality they bring into your life).
You can also honour the elements and 7 directions at this point.

From here your ceremony can take shape in in whatever way you choose - contemplative meditation, song, mantra, an invocation dance - the idea is to bring in and awaken the light codes of our central sun to help you release what’s no longer working and open to receive new evolutionary downloads.

If you’d like some guidance, here’s a simple ritual...

RITUAL

Play some beautiful music that allows you to connect with your heart.

Either seated or standing become consciously aware of your breath for a few moments to focus your energy.

Then bring awareness to your heart centre.
Imagine breathing directly in and out of this inner temple space.
Feel the flow of oxygen fill the space with light as you inhale, and settle you into a grounded awareness as you exhale.

Imagine a pillar of this light reaching down from the heart through the lower chakras to the core of the Earth - A channel for both receiving the healing energies of Mother Nature Gaia and for releasing any energies that you no longer need, to be composted by the Earth.

Inhale and draw up the warm, grounded presence of the Earth’s core through your root pillar and into your heart. And as you exhale an ascending channel of glistening light beams up from the heart and out through the crown of your head.

Get a sense that you are now centred between grounded, downward, and elevating upward spiralling energies.

Through this open channel above now sense the Great central sun/son and the powerful light swelling within it.

Reach your arms up and imagine the sun between your open palms.

Feel the full power vibration of pure, unconditional love, the ultimate force of creation and illumination radiating from its core.
And when you sense it, imagine it streaming down through the central pillar into your body and spreading throughout your being, igniting every cell with the consciousness of pure love and compassion.

Imagine a continual stream of this energy flowing in and fortifying your mind, body and soul with the strongest force of nature there is - Love (feel free to move, low, circle your hips or remain still - your body will tell you what it wants to do).

When full of love we become brave like the lion headed one.

We live and move from the heart and magnetise high vibe experiences.

Let love reign down on you right now.

Let it blaze through the veils of illusion that have been masking who you truly are.

Let it heal your body and dissolve any fears that you’re not capable, worthy, deserving, gifted.

Let it uplift and remind you that in every moment you have the opportunity to change your vibe - to ascend from challenging experiences/cycles and remember the strength of spirit within to rise up.

You might imagine this light as tiny particles, neutrinos streaming down, or one magnificent beam of glistening light.

However you intuitively sense this energy is perfect.

When you’re ready release your hands down and place them over your heart. In your minds eye visualise Sekhmet (see below) and feel her presence in your heart, imagining her entire form or just head at the centre. The Lions heart. Take a deep breath in and then as you exhale stick out your tongue and let out a huge “haaaaaa” style roar as though you are purging any fears, doubts, limiting beliefs.
Do this as many times as is needed.

When complete take a deep breath in and sense her courage, her fierce compassion fill every cell of your being, as though each particle in your body becomes a blazing sun.

Allow your body to move with this frequency however it intuitively feels, until you feel activated!

CLOSE & GROUND

When you feel full and complete come to close your ceremony.

At this point you may wish to journal any inspirations or downloads that came through, or set some clear intentions moving forward.

Next give thanks for all the energies that have supported you. Name each in turn or group them as a whole if short on time.

Most importantly make sure that you ground yourself to root back into your body.
Plug in to the Earth either energetically, imaging roots extending down or literally place your feet and hands on the Earth to discharge any energy that might need to be released.

If you can, keep your altar set up until you’re ready to change it.
See it as a ever metamorphosing prayer, bringing focus to what it is you want to call into your life.

And now trust the process.
Any shifts that need to happen will do in perfect timing!
We live in a benevolent universe and love always prevails...

Would love to hear how you get on with this!

Big Love!

ABOUT CACAO

Cacao or Ka' kau (raw chocolate) is a powerful plant medicine that has been used for thousands of years across Central and South America.

Known as the "Food of the Gods" by ancient Mesoamerican peoples, it was and still is taken as a sacrament to commune with higher intelligence and the deepest parts of Self.

Known to open the heart, Cacao allows us to merge deeper into an understanding of who we are and the potential we hold to live a life of love. For this reason it has become known as the "Food of the Shift" as it is believed it will greatly assist in the global awakening of humankind.


Properties and Effects

Cacao is full of health boosting antioxidants, endorphin releasing 'feel good" compounds, as well as neurotransmitters that support mental clarity and concentration.

Dependending on dose and intention, this gentle, yet powerful elixir can facilitate a host of physical, emotional and spiritual experiences including:

· Energising with a natural, non buzzy high
· Enhancing mood
· Clearing emotional blockages
· Boosting creativity and productivity
· Enhancing connection in personal and professional relationships.
· Deepening yoga and meditation practices

OUR JOURNEY WITH CACAO

"It always feels like I was initiated by the plant itself.

Rewind to 2009, Peru. I'd been gifted a block of pure local cacao by a friend and found myself nibbling away at it on an outing we took. It wasn't long before waves of pure bliss and joy like I'd never felt before began to course through my entire body. I couldn't quite believe what was happening? And it lasted for HOURS!

I knew at that point that this was something special for me and a few months later on my travels across Central America I came across Keith the Cacao Shaman in Guatemala. With him I had another extraordinary healing experience with the Cacao and inevitably spent some intensive time learning about this incredible master plant.

Super inspired by the effects it had already had on my life, I felt a deep calling to bring the cacao back to the UK and share it with our community.

One of the first to host Cacao Ceremonies in London, it has always been our intent to hold this medicine sacred and with integrity and we feel blessed to have shared it with over 1000 people already in our circles.

It brings us so much joy that we can now personally share with you the same gift that has brought pure magic into our life over the last 11 years. We truly believe this plant holds a special purpose at this time in supporting the great "shift" occurring on the planet.

May it bring you exactly what you need."

PREPARING YOUR CEREMONIAL CACAO

A recommended guide for ceremonial and regular brews.

1.For a ceremonial dose use a sharp knife to shave 42g from your block or anywhere between 11-28g for a regular dose. Make sure the pieces are small enough to dissolve easily (<6mm)

You can also quick-pulse larger blocks in a food processor to form fine, easily dissolvable granules.

2. Once chopped add a small amount of hot to touch water (70-80 degrees) to make a paste using the back of a spoon. A hand whisk will give it a creamier texture. Add the remaining water bit by bit and blend until a smooth texture forms (a cup/250g in total).

3. you May also choose to add a synergist such as cayenne pepper which will help the cacao to be absorbed more quickly or spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves to flavour. Non-dairy milk and sweetness such as agave, honey and maple syrup are sometimes favoured to soften the bitterness of the Cacao.

4. Offering your intention, prayer and honour to the cacao can support your ceremonial journey with the plant and boost its effects. In its traditions of origin this is a sacred plant with a unique spirit that guides us in matters of the heart and healing.

Over time you'll develop your own relationship with the plant and find what quantities and elixirs work best for you!

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data

This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
* Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

Contraindications

Though cacao is a mild and relatively safe plant there are few circumstances where caution should be taken:
· High doses of SSRI antidepressants and antipsychotics do not mix well with the MAO inhibitors in cacao. If this applies you may choose to drink less. Please consult your doctor.
· Heart problems: As cacao is a vasodilator it increases blood flow which may pose a problem for some with high BP. Please check with your doctor first.
· Pregnancy and nursing: Because of those of the physiological effects described it is recommended that a lower than normal dose be consumed during pregnancy to begin with. Depending on how your body responds you can increase the dosage to suit.

Join me for a virtual gathering to harness Gemini Moon Magic together in Sisterhood.

A time for deep reflection, planting seeds and intentions for what we wish to co-create this cycle.

This is a strong Gemini Moon which can have us feeing pulled in many directions but with the help of retrograde Saturn supporting us to ground, we can become more clear on what our true heart-womb calling is and get practical.

Now's the time!

This will be a warmly held space for you to fully receive.
To drop into guided meditation and rituals.
With gentle embodied movement and breathwork to reconnect and replenish, heal and uplift.
We’ll end with a Live Sound healing bath (a separate link will be given on the call for this)
and Reiki transmission.

The Earth is reminding us to find stillness in the activity. How to fill the well and to serve from the overflow.

For ALL Women - no experience necessary.

Streamed via Zoom (download if you don’t have it)
