Three owls call from the trees around the house and suddenly a poem writes itself...
Owls on the wing, riding the night
Calling me out to witness their flight.
Spirit of Darkness hiding the light,
Clouds on a moon veiled from my sight,
Sound carried far on a clear night air,
Senses alert to what may be there.
Rustling of grass, whispering leaves.
What scurries there in the old house's eaves?
Owl cries a greeting, my spirit responds,
Wings swoop to embrace me, I rise to Owl's song.
Unfolding my wings, I join in the flight,
As the moon shows her face I soar up to its light.
Spirit of Darkness, Spirit of Night,
Show me the beauty that day hides from sight.
The sprinkle of starlight, the moon's eerie glow,
The sharpness of lightning, shadows on show.
Shapes with no substance, shifting like sand
Changing their contours at Night's command.
Soft cloak of Darkness, velvet of Night,
Wrap mystery around us with absence of light.
Owl cries farewell as it takes to the sky
And stillness descends with the fade of its cry,
Night's mantle of mystery is once more restored,
And wisdom embraced from its dark realms explored.

WOW! (Women of the World)
Saturday 3 March 2018
At the next WOW! Meeting on Saturday 3 March 2018 , we are privileged to have a guest speaker, Ros Elliott, who will be talking about the Bowen Technique, and also giving demonstrations. Ros works primarily in Izmir but travels widely to hold training workshops and therapy sessions. She will be in Koycegiz for a few days and has kindly offered to share her knowledge and skills with the WOW! group.
Ros has been working with Bowen since 2002 when she started training in London, qualifying in 2011 as an Instructor with Australia’s Bowen Academy (BTAA) and the Bowen Association UK (BAuk).
She originally trained as a teacher in dance and music, gaining diplomas from The London College of Dance and Drama, The Royal College of Music and then a university degree. She went on to follow full-time training in Benesh choreology, which brought her to Turkey to found the Choreology Department for Hacettepe University’s State Conservatoire. She has been teaching Yoga for the past 20 years, and is a graduate of The British School of Yoga.
The Bowen Technique is unique in the field of bodywork. It is not massage, accupressure, physiotherapy or chiropractic. It is a gentle form of soft tissue manipulation that stimulates the body’s innate capacity to heal itself and works primarily through the nervous system on structural and energetic levels. Healing occurs through the response of the body’s autonomic nervous system to the Bowen moves, at whatever level is needed; physical, mental, emotional, chemical or energetic.
For more information on Bowen Technique and Ros:
WOW! meetings are for women only and require no advance booking. Everyone is welcome, regardless of nationality, but discussions are in English. There is no charge for attending.
