Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
~ with Doremi Hayward Vaardal
Craniosacral Therapy is a profound and gentle form of bodywork. It is able to address the client on both a physical and emotional level, and as such can be extremely valuable in allowing fixed patterns and traumas held within the body begin to shift. It works with the inherent wisdom of the body to orient towards health via deep listening and stillness.
Doremi Hayward Vaardal is a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist. She trained at the Karuna Institute with Franklyn Sills, and has recently completed Integrative Baby Training with Matthew Appleton, Bristol.
Appointments available on Thursdays 9am~1pm

Restorative Yoga ~ The Art of Relaxation
~ with Maria Stayne
In our hectic, stressful modern day world, Restorative Yoga offers an ideal balance to enhance our experience of peace, nurture and calm. Practicing Restorative Yoga regularly changes the way our mind and bodies react to stress and increases our capacity for staying present.
A typical restorative class will involve 5-6 supported postures that we hold for long enough to access the resting state in our nervous system both physically and mentally. We use mindful breath to deepen into relaxation.
Maria lived in India and was drawn to Yogic Vedanta philosophies. She then moved to Spain for 11 years where she developed an interest in organic intelligence, body mind and community. She returned to England to complete her yoga teacher training and four years study of counselling and psychotherapy.

She is a mother, psychotherapist and meditation practitioner who has been listening to people professionally for over twenty years.

Living with Illness
~ a mindfulness based support group for all those affected by cancer
with Jacqui Chandler & Kay Parkinson
Many Threads offers support to people affected by cancer ~ either living with a diagnosis or as a Carer. It assumes that one size does not fit all, and there may be ‘many threads’ to draw on to support a diagnosis.
We offer mindfulness, meditation, compassion and creative practices to help cultivate a sense of ease, and maintain a sense of wellbeing. The intention of the gatherings is to explore mindfulness as a foundation to compassionately face the challanges of cancer.

Living with Death
The ‘End Of The Road’ Death Cafe
~ with Jos Hadfield & Kay Parkinson
‘If we really faced our fear of death, our lives would ultimately be lighter and more joyful’
~ Larry Rosenberg
People often don’t want to think about dying and certainly not to talk about it; we tend to focus all our attention on living. But birth and death are co-existent, just the flipside of the same coin. As we talk, death can become more familiar and no longer a stranger.
Monthly, on a Monday
