Feeling tired ? A bit stressed ? In need of a boost ?

Although it can be fun, this time of year can be challenging for many. There can be the stresses of christmas, the longer winter nights and we can end up feeling quite depleted and somewhat lacking in festive cheer.

Join us for our 3-week pre-festive meditation course and build up inner resources to banish festive stress and winter blues.


Week 1 – 27th November / 1st December – Lift your mind

Week 2 – 4th December / 8th December – Resolving hurt and unhappiness

Week 3 – 11th December / 15th December – Finding energy and inspiration
