Subtle Energy Work: Embodied Skills and Capacities for Life

With Stephen Busby

rose-windowRose Window Hermitage, Kilburn, London
28-29 October 2017


We live in many dimensions of consciousness beyond the physical realm. Subtle energy work leads us to awareness of our whole multidimensional selves – to life lived consciously beyond the ordinary senses. We learn how to embody more of the vast spectrum of life’s sacred invitation to us and we learn how to change – ourselves and the world – from the inside.

You will learn or practice how to:

  • Deepen your awareness of subtle energies, as you navigate within yourself and in relational spaces with other people, becoming more sensitive to subtle information, practicing how to listen and act on it, and exploring the impact of this, often with healing effects,
  • Become aware of – and embody more of – your whole multidimensional selfhood, expanding your capacity to manifest your higher Soul potential through your everyday life,
  • Engage in world-work through subtle activism, using your inner sensitivities to facilitate change in and beyond yourself, and aligning with the emerging field of planetary consciousness work.

When we recognize that reality does not start and stop in the physical world then we are engaging with the subtle realms, which underpin all that we were educated to accept as real in three-dimensional reality. In subtle energy work:

– We participate creatively in an inner unfolding reality, learning to bridge our daily life and our deeper purpose for being here. The inner worlds are not somewhere separate from ourselves: we learn to be present and to focus there rather than only ‘outside’,

– We explore new perceptual, emotional, intellectual and psychic capacities, embracing the non-physical dimensions of being human. To those of us who are expanding our capacity for consciousness and embodying more of our innate wholeness, these dimensions are as real as our material furniture or our food.

If you long to relate to life in essential and transformative ways but you feel blocked in inner places that seem not accessible then subtle energy work will render you sensitive to how energy moves and unfolds all the time, through your smallest actions.

You will learn to navigate life more creatively from inside and to ground yourself at higher frequencies of being – which is far more effective than attempting to change ourselves and the world only from outside.


P1060520 (4)During this weekend we will practice integrating our subtle-inner and outer awareness, embodying more consciousness in everything we do and are. This brings light and movement to those unconscious aspects of ourselves where we hold back from a fuller expression of life, which then attracts to us very different opportunities and choices. Transpersonal intelligence becomes available and we are guided by energetic currents and impulses to embody a rich intuitive life.

These impulses manifest in us as inner states of realization: they connect us to higher dimensional realities and can unlock hidden qualities of the Soul, enabling us to explore the frequencies of other subtle realms and revealing to us more of our Divine purpose in the web of life.

To embody more consciousness through subtle energy work is to support radical change in ourselves and in the evolution of humanity. It is to co-create a new world through more consciously participating in an accelerated evolutionary process. It is to bring your inner world to bear on the most pressing issues facing us all today.


Anyone who wishes to live, love, work or play more consciously, or who feels an inner call to live at a higher vibrational level of life – for themselves and others.

The work is especially useful for those who work with other people through consciousness or who aspire to, such as in the field of coaching or counselling, in healing or therapy – and all the caring professions, and in business or organisational life, consulting or leadership. No previous experience is required.

For those who already know the field of Stephen’s work, this weekend will provide ample opportunity – and invitation – to dive more deeply into subtle energy practices. You will become a clearer vessel for higher consciousness as the frequencies we are working with become ever more grounded in your life, supporting you to stabilise there.


Concise teachings and inner tools, dialogue and conversation, somatic presencing and constellation work, individual and small-group assignments and exercises, and guided personal reflection. Simple practices you can take home and explore further will be suggested.

Stephen has a coaching and healing practice and is based at the Findhorn Community in Scotland (read more here). He has worked internationally for over 35 years to help people fulfil their life-potential. Read more on his background here, or on where his work comes from here.

ON THE FRIDAY: This weekend will be preceded by a day of Constellation Work on Friday 27 October, for those who would like to bring an issue or concern they are struggling with in life. There will also be space for those who would like to learn from Stephen’s approach to Constellation work by observing or representing in the constellations. See here for more information on this day which you may attend independently of the weekend.

“The work with you brings me a clearer, finer and kinder self-relationship. I’m learning to inhabit and navigate my subtle energetic world, getting in touch with a true and inclusive picture of myself and the world; a feeling of something essential being touched and opened. In a way I am learning love.”

“Your work has enabled me to undergo the most profound change. I’m stunned by your ability to slow down, relate to the most subtle things in my presence, and thus help me to untangle the deepest patterns.”

“I realize how much of this work I tried to do alone and what a different perspective to do it in a field of love and support. How sacred this movement is! I am not the same person I was before and feel a great thank you from deep places inside.”

“I can’t express how powerful and inspiring this way of working is and how much hope it brings to the healing of the humanity. I appreciated your authentic presence that seemed to draw into the space a warmth and peace that was palpable. I am in awe of how deeply impactful the exercises were and how much I learned about the complexities of our human experience with so little cognitive processing. It feels like such a natural and intuitive expression of truth that once it is seen it seems to just fall into place.”

“You have taught me in a powerful way to listen for what has energy and to move from there in my life.”

“Stephen is a master facilitator of the most important skill in life – deep presence. He guided me carefully and slowly into a felt experience of my self, my body sensations and my emotions, which helped me to see more of who I really am and what my purpose is.”

“You have brought an unfathomable gift of highest love. My understanding of how the unseen is made known into embodiment has been given the greatest boost. The gentle way, the unconditional way, so touching and now imprinted into my being even more.”

“Stephen’s gentle and powerful guidance has opened me to multidimensional teachings. The frame is large, inclusive and enables profoundly deep healing.”

“I feel free, unburdened, more expansive, and feel I can breathe, truly, for the first time in this life. Thank you for this work, from the bottom of my heart.”

“Stephen has a unique way of crafting deep connection with what’s arising in the field. I feel more sensitive to subtle energies and more connected to my own energetic container. I have an expanded sense of who I am and how I show up in the world.”

“In Stephen’s presence I experience a profound level of clarity, humility and integrity. He’s in touch with who he is as a human being and encourages me to be that way too.”

“I know that something huge has shifted for me. I am feeling back at home within, and a strong sense of reconnection. Wow, what a journey, and also what a joy to be able to follow this through and get a better understanding of the underlying energetic processes.”

“Gratitude for your spaciousness, attunement and subtle awareness which allows feelings, emotions, aspects of the soul and personality to be seen, experienced and return to wholeness. It is a true gift and opportunity to learn from you.”

“You are the very first person to ever reflect back to me the truth of my very own life process.”

“The work taught me to listen and tune into fields of information, to take responsibility for what I learnt there and to live with more intensity and more fun.”

“I was struck by how much is being done in this field, yet bringing all the theory and innovation into group formats and living relationships is clearly the cutting edge, and this is where you reside. Thank you for being a pioneer in the integration of consciousness, psychology, and human development. I cannot imagine a more important work.”

“Stephen’s work begins to show us that the next level of human potential depends in part on a shift of focus from our individualized subjective experience to a deeper understanding of the energetic field in which we are embedded in and of which we are a manifestation. Stephen trains us in the ability to work directly with this field to effect systemic as well as personal transformation.”

“Words cannot capture how special this work is. We find tiny openings – portals into our deepest wounding… we listen deeply for the higher frequencies and the flow of love is restored and magic happens…”

“I learned how to notice when I was fully present in my body. After years of words, I was able to embody the physical experience and get a sense of what grounded truly means and feels like.”

“The quality of the silence created allowed me to deeply experience the subtle movements of energy within me and how I am related in and to the field. Bearing witness to the creation of Life, in its continuous unfolding, left me with a desire and increased capacity to make more conscious choices. I have a profound realization of the impact that they make in the creation of our world.”
