I’m very busy at the moment working on my primary research dissertation “an exploration of people’s level of knowledge of the link between diet and disease”. I’ve got to write 8,000 words and still have 3 other assignments to finish by the end of May. Each year we have been expected to include more critical analysis and rather than regurgitate what we’ve read, we need to look across a broad body of evidence and draw conclusions. I’ve loved being a student and am determined to finish on a high, I put hours of work into my recent ‘therapeutic approach to nutrition’ assignment and was delighted to get a mark of 80%. They say a change is as good as a rest and attending the Colour Therapy Session at Skelmersdale Community Food Initiative where I volunteer, gave me a real boost. I didn’t know anything about colour therapy before, but what I know now is that it’s nothing to do with what colours suit me.
Denise delivered the session and it was a delight from the start, everyone on the course was lovely and it was a really nice way to spend a couple of hours. We started by doing a Karmagraph to discover our special colour influence. That’s a calculation based on your date of birth – Mine was: “GOLD” The Counsellor
- Which supposedly makes me an unpaid counsellor with good listening skills and able to give good advice – perfect for a student nutritionist / dietitian! Apparently I also have the need to visit different cultures and am knowledgeable and have natural wisdom that I’ve developed over many lifetimes! I like the sound of that!
We then moved on to Kinesiology which is a therapy used to assesses health and wellbeing. Stress resistance is used to detect any physique, chemistry, nutrition or emotional imbalances – all fascinating stuff. The group then went ‘dowsing for colours’ – difficult to explain but great fun. We talked about chakra’s and also did a bit of colouring – very therapeutic in its self.
- I found I was attracted to Red so I need to replenish my energy and quieten my system and Green which calls for me to spend more time having fun.
I thoroughly enjoyed the session and would definitely recommend it to others. Denise is great at putting people at ease and her enthusiasm for the subject rubbed off on us all. We all left wanting to know more. Val X
