Wellbeing practices remind us that God is present to us, in every cell of our being. They enable prayer and our spiritual relationship with God by reminding us of the wholeness (and holiness) of our being, relaxing the body, and bringing us to a centred and meditative place which is prayerful in itself, or can enable us to pray more easily or readily.

This extended morning session (one of a series) continues to introduce Capacitar (meaning “empowerment”) practices and energy work, and newcomers and previous participants are very welcome.

What to expect: A gentle, flowing morning, some quiet time, some more energetic movement, time to reflect and share/ask questions. A chance to know others in a different context. All ages and abilities are welcome.

You can  download a leaflet here to read or pass on.

(No need for packed lunch). Tea/coffee provided.
