Brooke skinner


Brooke Skinner is an Internationally acclaimed Practitioner and Teacher to help bring your life into balance and alignment. Using a varied array of tools such as Vibrational Medicine, Energy Work, Therapy, Kundalini Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Herbalism, Nutrition and as a Moon Mother Practitioner offering Womb Healings. Brooke started her studies in 2005 studying various Science Degrees, Nutrition, Naturopathy, Psychology and Western Herbal Medicine. This has lead to a vast array of tools for many stages in her client and students lives. She believes it is important to see the body from a vibrational aspect. Just like a tool box, we need the right tools for the right job. "WITH EDUCATION COMES POWER AND WITH POWER COMES THE ABILITY TO CHANGE THE WORLD".

Relationships, upbringing, the stress and pressure of living in a masculine, modern world – all these things regularly disconnect us from awareness of our authentic nature. As a woman who has experience sexual abuse and trauma I have found the connection that comes from self empowerment and moving through our stories is most powerful tool to help reconnect with my own sacredness and remove that stagnant energy from past traumas, I have been able to move from a place of fear and shame to a place of love and compassion. I know that you too can connect back to your true essence and move through life with grace and strength and honouring your authentic self.

"Just because I have healed does not mean I am free, It means I have an obligation to help others so they too can heal. To be able to see your own pain and traumas transform to light by helping another brother or sister is the most beautiful process of evolution and love we can experience"- Brooke Skinner

Each session is tailored personally for each client using a varied array of tools. Two main modalities are Hands on Womb Healing and Trauma Release Therapy. Brooke has worked extensively with chronic illness - endocrine imbalances such as Hashimotos Thyroiditis, SIBO, Leaky Gut, Kidney Disease and Auto Immune Disease; Healing from sexual abuse and sexual related trauma; Pregnancy and pregnancy related trauma; Depression, anxiety, Neurobiology and living through PTSD and CPTSD. Brooke uses Psychotherapy based principals along with energetic healing fused with Western and Eastern Medicine.

Womb Healings

As a Moon Mother Practitioner working with the womb energies changes us, changes our lives and the lives of those around us. Each time a woman receives a Womb Healing her connection to the sacred feminine energies within her deepens. She is also able to access the energy for her own personal healing, self-development and awakening.

Trauma Release Therapy

Together we explore the different bio-systems of the human being, from a holistic paradigm, both in health and harmony as well as in disease and disharmony. Having assessed and diagnosed the constellation of symptoms we will than create a treatment regime using a combination of: Meditation to cleanse the subconscious of mental debris & self-limiting patterns; Pranayama to synchronize the levels of consciousness & aid their transformation; Nutritional advice to rebuild & tonify the physical form; Herbs and organic matter to enrich the body & target specific bio-systems; Kundalini Yoga asanas (postures) and Kriyas specifically selected to accelerate the healing process.

Brooke holds space for monthly New Moon Rituals and Workshops in The Craft channeling her practices in Wicca and honouring the four generations of Wiccan's that stood before her. Her passion it helping men and women bring ritual and magic into their daily lives and to become empowered through their stories to stand in their own truth, unlocking their creative code, their Sat Nam. Weekly you can find her every Monday and Thursday at 6pm - 7:30pm teaching Kundalini Yoga and a $5 Yoga Nidra community class at 7:30pm on Mondays.

monthly new moon ritual

The monthly lunar cycle gives you many chances to do rituals to mark a personal turning point or let go. At the New Moon, you can go into the dark and be symbolically reborn. New Moon rituals help you summon your whole Self, and in that magic moment, commit to intentions being fully supported by fellow brothers and sisters weaving our magic together.

A New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle, a fresh start in it’s cycle of waxing and waning. During this time the Moon is empty and receptive and full of potential. This is an optimum time to plant seeds of intentions for what you wish to manifest in your life.

Most of us, live our lives so disconnected from the Earth, and devoid of any kind of ritual that creates the space for us to connect. So the New Moon provides us with an opportunity to take the time to create SACRED SPACE for ourselves. It’s essential. We all contain the power to manifest our hopes and dream, our personal resolve. Wicca practices can help you stand in your true power and command the new using the elements, directions and calling on our innate wisdom.

There is something so powerful when we come together to support each other on our journey, in their hopes and dreams. We are healed, we are nurtured, we feel comforted and understood. When we share sacred space together we magnify the power of our intentions and we energetically create a web of support for not only our circle of brother and sisters but with people everywhere.

New Moon rituals are held on the following dates for 2017 at Sat Nam Institute.

Sunday 23rd July 7pm - 9pm
