Yoga-thon and World Peace Meditation

A big thank you to everyone who participated in the joint fund raising event for an orphanage project in Preeti, Nepal at Future Form on December 21st.

The day commenced with a Yogathon with Stephanie Joyce who encouraged and kept everyone enthused during the 108 sun salutations .

Yanu gave us a great history about  Winter solstice celebration . He dowsed us with sage as we entered the room so engaged us from the start.

He played a  drum and shaker during the ceremony and also chanted.

We then finished with a Beverley Holt giving a Global Reiki candle lit meditation for World Peace .

Everyone lit their own candle setting the intention for World Peace , knowing that many people around the planet were doing exactly the same thing.

‘When we meet as a collective, we join in Sanctuary’ Phyllis Furumoto.

It was a lovely evening with many people having wonderful “awakening”  and heart opening  experiences.

Yoga-Thon and World Peace Meditation

On Sunday December 21st, Riviera Reiki and Future Form would like to invite you for our Xmas Celebration. Join us for some Xmas Cheer plus we have three truly uplifting and worthy events at Future Form, 6 rue Massena, Nice.  Enjoy an afternoon of relaxation and fun. Welcome to come for one or all events.


The afternoon starts at 4.30pm, with yoga teacher Stéfanie Joyce, who will lead a sequence of 108 yoga mala sun salutations. Participation in class participants will be able to join the salutations in at any time.

Stephanie decided to give up her time to raise money for Preeti Orphanage Project in Nepal, of which Stephanie is a proud and committed ambassador.

Cost: Donations (not obligatory) will go to the orphanage.


The sun salutations will be followed at 7pm with a meditation for world peace led by Beverley Holt, Reiki Master and Teacher. The meditation is actually part of a simultaneous worldwide meditation organised by the International Reiki Association, so you will be one of thousands of people across the planet simultaneously channelling all of their positive energy into a collective will for a better and more harmonious world.

No experience necessary, just an open heart for World Peace.

Listen to what one of the World’s top Peace Leaders Thich Nhat Hanh has to say about World Suffering.


We will also acknowledge our ancestors on this important day . It is the Winter Solstice. We are very lucky to have Yanu, an experienced Shaman to guide us with a special ceremony; he may surprise us with drums or shakers.


Read more about Yanu and his great work here:


What is Winter solstice?


For us in the Northern Hemisphere, the December solstice marks the longest night and shortest day of the year.


Future Form and Riviera Reiki will also make the most of this occasion to celebrate Christmas with you, so all participants can expect a festive drink and festive snack. Get to meet new like-minded people through this collaboration.


We would love to see you and your friends there in great number to show some festive yoga and Reiki love for these two fantastic causes.


Please RSVP for Yoga here:

Colour Workshop with Christine Brydon, International Astrologer and Healer with more than 30 years of experience.

christine brydon

7-00pm for 7-30pm until 10-30pm

Monday 29th September?

Are you ready for a fun, experiential night? All welcome to join us for this wonderful colour workshop.

In the modern world we are constantly surrounded by colour although most of us experience the attributes of colour in different ways. Some people are extremely sensitive to the effects of colour while others believe they are not affected by it at all. However, scientific research suggests that although we may not always register the effects of colour on a conscious level we are continually communicating with each other, and with the world at large, by transmitting and receiving vibrations that are based on the visible section of the Magnetic Spectrum which manifests as colour to our eyes. Colour has a strong influence on all of us and having ‘Colour Consciousness’ will help enhance our awareness of life.

Healing with light and colour is known as Chromotherapy and has been used by many ancient civilisations throughout history. Nevertheless, over time the benefits of this most effective and invaluable therapy were almost lost until recent research provided new evidence, not only of the curative power of colour but also of the importance and necessity for light and colour in our everyday lives.

The workshop will help us assess our own particular colour strengths and weaknesses by way of a psychological colour test and a series of specifically designed exercises and meditations.

7-30pm First Session

Passing the Colour Wand

What is Colour? Electro Magnetic Spectrum

8-30pm break – bring food to share and whatever you’d like to drink.

Flash Awake: Feel The Surprising Riches Here For You Now


Dr. Wiedemann is in Nice from Colorado, USA

Come enjoy his FREE, Short, Interactive Presentation

Flash Awake:
Feel The Surprising Riches Here For You Now

I created this quick, easy, fun method from 4 decades and 35,000+ hours of experience and wisdom as a psychologist, coach, guide, therapist — in the trenches with thousands of clients … all wanting to wake up to the freedom, fulfillment & grace which is present now.

I am also an artist, published author, world traveler and scientist, and have been a seeker myself  ‘on the path’ for over 50 years, and wished I had this!

In this 60-minute introduction, what “surprising riches” might you flash awake to? Every flash awake will be different, and that’s a beautiful thing because the flash awake will always give you what you need … for example:

  • Have a direct experience of spiritually waking up that requires no belief system, religion or philosophy
  • Feel powerful benefits like clarity, grounding or gratitude.
  • Relieve some of the daily stress of pursuing your goals and dreams.
  • Feel refreshing moments of joy.
  • Rapidly connect to what is most important to you.

I have developed this one-minute solution to flash awake anytime in your day or night.

This will be an informal, interactive, fun session (I have taught hundreds of mini-workshops like this).

For those of you attending, I am offering a free MP3 on the #1 Breathing Pattern to cut stress and to flash awake. You can get it by going to

Date & Time:
Tuesday June 10th
19h30 Mingle and meet Frederic
20h00 Flash Awake starts
21h00 Sit-down pot luck meal.

Le Moonlight,
17,Boulevard Carnot,
06300 … 6th floor on left

Please bring a plate of food to share and whatever you’d like to drink. Please advise what you are bringing.
