"Friday morning group saved my life."
"Friday mornings are incredible, life changing."
The Friday Morning Group ~ Online ~ Friday Morning 10am to 12.30pm
Now in its 21st year, this group, affectionately known simply as ‘The Friday Morning Group’ is a meditation and self-awareness group that has been meeting regularly at the beautiful St Michael’s Sanctuary in Ewell in Surrey.
Due to the current situation, we have transferred the FMG online and we have been delighted to discover that our rather eclectic mix of activities and supportive energy has been able to continue in the ethers.
Our intention is the same; to create a safe, confidential and supportive space in which to rest deeply in stillness, access our inner peace and strength, as well as to share experiences in a kind and supportive way.
If you already on my FMG mailing list, then all the details about forthcoming dates and booking links are sent through the FMG newsletter.
In order to keep the integrity of the group, we ask that if you are new to the FMG experience and would like to attend, that you email me first to introduce yourself. I will then send you links with upcoming dates and details for registration and payment.
“I have attended Marion’s Friday morning group sessions, group leaders training and also had one to one sessions with her. All my experiences of working with Marion have been positive, encouraging and enlightening. She is able to hold a space to allow me to look deeper inside and connect with myself and others from my heart. I feel very grateful to have connected with Marion, through her wise and patient guidance, I feel I have developed as a human, have become more forgiving and appreciative of myself and others and learnt to enjoy life more.”
Doris – Executive and Leadership Coach
“I have been to several workshops held by Marion and each time I found myself in a sacred space filled with love, understanding and truth. Marion has an innate ability to gracefully guide you and the perfect facilitation skills to create the right energy at her events. Afterwards I leave feeling fulfilled, cleansed and looking forward to the next one.”
“Thank you for a wonderful FMG yesterday; you hold us all in such a peaceful, restorative and energising space with your beautiful presence, profound and deep meditations and conscious resting that just wraps us all in cosy blanket of stillness.”
A brief history of the Friday Morning Group
I love facilitating this group, and always have done ever since it began back in 1999. Originally a support group for myself and my clients while I was completing my Brandon Bays Journey Practitioner training, this group felt like the only place at the time where I could share the deep experiences I was going through.
The FMG became a very important source of support and spiritual nourishment for me and those who attended, and this has continued to be the case right up to the present day. Some of those participants from the early days still drop in sometimes, and now that the group is held online, it means people can still connect for some good old FMG magic where ever they are in the world.
The pioneering work of Brandon and The Journey continues to suffuse the Friday Morning Group as well as other modalities and teachings from different lineages. And this space is offered to new participants too, especially those who have experienced some Journey work for the first time more recently.
I bring decades of experience as a therapist, spiritual seeker, mentor and group facilitator to these mornings, along with the Graceful support of Jan Collis and Honorine Moynihan. Jan and Honoine are also accredited Journey practitioners, and are trained in other healing modalities as well.
Preparing for our Sacred Mornings
These can be very deep and transformational mornings so I highly recommend that you take 15 minutes to prepare your space; have a shawl or blanket, a drink of water and a pen & paper to hand. Perhaps light a candle and reflect for a few minutes on what you would like to receive during the morning. Our prayers are always being answered, and the clearer our intention is, the easier it is for our Soul to guide us.
We use the Zoom platform for our meetings, and we are online ready for you to log on from 9.50 am. We start with our cameras on, with the invitation to turn them off during the meditations and then back on for the rest of the morning. Sometimes we go into the virtual ‘breakout rooms’ for small group sharing.
We ask that everyone commits to keeping this a confidential space so we can share freely in an open and supportive way.
We have a 10-minute tea break mid-morning, and then our group ends at 12.30 pm.
Payment is by donation with a number of options to reflect the original intention of Friday Morning Group, which was that everyone would have access to the work regardless of financial status. The Friday Morning Group tithes to the Lucy Rayner Foundation Charity (who support young people with their mental health and well being) and St Michael’s Sanctuary in Ewell.
