NEW PLACES FOR FAMILIAR EVENTS

With much sadness the Well Being Centre at Stone Cross is now closed as the owners of the Glynleigh Farm, our very good friends Becky and Jon, have decided to retire to a quieter life on the farm after nearly 10 years as our business partners running the Centre. It has been a truly amazing journey and we are so grateful to have made this wonderful journey together. We wish them peace, good health and plenty of joy as they begin a new chapter in their lives…

We shall be continuing with all our work in a variety of different places through into next year…… We are very happy that Nicole Breathe with Ease, Nicole has bought our Big Yurt, and is intending to open her own holistic centre near Wilmington in March 2024. We wish her every success with her new venture. To find out out more please check out https://www.thesussexshala.co.uk/

Natalie, one of our other teachers, is opening another centre in a yurt in 2024. Her centre is the Holistic Haven and there are more details to be found here https://www.gracefulyoga.uk/locations . We wish her every success in her future journey.

DONATION BASED SHIATSU CLINICS

NN-working-on-back-original

Our donation based  community SHIATSU CLINICS are very popular, with a mixture of regular clients who love to receive Shiatsu but cannot afford regular prices and new clients who would like to experience Shiatsu at a cost of their choosing.

These clinics provide a wonderful opportunity to have a deeply relaxing, revitalising  and healing  Shiatsu treatment from a fully qualified Shiatsu Practitioner for a donation. We only ask that you pay what you can afford and we suggest from £15 for a half hour, from £25 for an hour. Truly excellent value. The treatments will all take place following the chosen protocols of the Shiatsu Society, the CNHC and our insurers to ensure an environment as safe as possible. All treatments are only available prebooked. To book text or phone Nick on 0777306309.

We now offer one regular donation based Shiatsu Saturday clinic a month at the Natural Fitness Centre on the seafront near the Redoubt Fortress and are looking to announce extra ones through the year at different locations.

We are always looking at the possibility of taking the Shiatsu clinic on the road in 2024, visiting a variety of different locations such as East Dean, Alfriston and Jevington. Watch this space. For more details see below……

“Touch your inner space, which is nothingness, as silent and empty as the sky; it is your inner sky. Once you settle down in your inner sky, you have come home, and a great maturity arises in your actions, in your behaviour. Then whatever you do has grace in it. Then whatever you do is a poetry in itself. You live poetry; your walking becomes dancing, your silence becomes music.” ~Osho

As you become more sensitive to Qi in your Qigong practice, you will become more sensitive to Qi in your everyday life.This opens new avenues of perception and awareness.

QIGONG,MEDITATION and the MAGIC of the BREATH workshops at the Old Chapel Centre, Alfriston, Live only.

Winter Web

  ‘Deep at the centre of your being, you have the answer. You know who you are and what you want.’

Lao Tzu

Every first Saturday of the month….. Saturday, 9th December 2023, 6th January 2024, 3rd February, 2nd March

Investment: £25. Booking required. All welcome…

These workshops are all based around the seasons and the Five Elements of Chinese Philosophy- Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire.

We shall  be exploring  their qualities through the power of the breath with gentle, flowing movements and stillness, connecting with our own energy and that of nature.

istocktai_chi_000003260776small[1]

Qigong , derived from the Chinese “qi” and “gong” means working with the life force  to develop  vitality, strength, and wellbeing. Qigong is also a path to greater self awareness and understanding of our true nature. To experience the beauty of Qigong and Meditation come and join us for this two hour workshop. No experience is necessary!

Qigong, meaning ‘cultivating energy’, seeks to align the breath with movement and stillness to develop the bodymind and breath awareness for calming, exercise, healing, and meditation.

By turning our attention inwards to connect with the different parts of the body, we learn to establish a dialogue with our own body. This dialogue is both a new and ancient way to approach and experience ourselves. By becoming more aware of ourselves and our own energy we explore our connection with the powerful universal energies. When we begin to integrate all parts of ourselves and the universe, we promote our body’s innate ability to heal, maintain and regain optimal health.

Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years and can be done by people of all faith traditions or none. With the practice of meditation the mind settles and a sense of ease, tranquillity and joy arise. This can lead to insight and wisdom. The meditations are usually visualisation based, an inner journeying to develop and explore more about our inner world and create new awarenesses. It is also an opportunity  to learn and develop  different relaxation techniques to work with ourselves.

Investment: Donation based suggested £25.00. Places are limited. Booking is essential. To book a place please contact Nick Neter on 07773061309 or email handswork@tiscali.co.uk.

I ask for prepayment unless by prior arrangement on the day. For payment either through Paypal; paypal.me/nickneter or BACS Account no. 01324015 Sort code: 30-92-86 Name: Nick J Neter

I am very much looking forward to working with you sometime soon……

Stay safe, stay well, stay strong
