Tutor: Jenny Webb

This workshop, led by Jenny Webb, offers an introduction to both handweaving and mindfulness. Using a mixture of theory and practice, we will explore the ways in which weaving can be used to help introduce periods of peacefulness, awareness and creative expression into our lives. We will be able to share our experiences in a comfortable and accepting setting. Everyone will go home with a small piece of tapestry weaving of their own. All equipment will be provided. If you are concerned that weaving could be challenging for you, please contact me to discuss the ways in which the workshop can be adapted to your needs.

Tutor: James D'Angelo

The natural vibrations of our voices can unlock the fine energies of the chakras and re-vitalise the organs of the body. Applied therapeutically, the voice is the perfect instrument for tuning the energy centres, purifying our psychology, removing stress and gaining heightened awareness. These practices are forms of sound Yoga and vocal homeopathy. This weekend will be led by James D’Angelo, who is the author of `The Healing Power of the Human Voice` and `Seed Sounds for Tuning the Chakras`

Over the weekend we`ll explore how the yoga practices can help calm a busy mind, soothe an agitated nervous system and connect with the ocean of peace which resides within. We will use a combination of simple movements with breath to move energy safely through the body, nurturing breathing practices so pacify the mind, sound work to soothe the soul, deep relaxation (including yoga nidra) and quiet sitting (meditation) to help us move into stillness. Suitable for those with moderate ME/CFS.
