Meditation isn't just for monks!

This two-part workshop is open to anyone, of any age and will teach you how to meditate - simple, breath-focussed meditation, which everyone can learn how to do.

In the first part, we'll talk about meditation techniques, the benefits and learn how it works and how to do it - we'll then all meditate together. Then you'll go away and experience meditation for yourselves, and how it fits into your life.

The second part of the workshop will be feeding back your experience, sharing, and of course meditating again!

Top Tips for Sound Sleep

Thursday, 12 January 2012
Published in Sara's Blog 2012

1. Cut caffeine. Completely. Anyone who suffers from insomnia shouldn't be having any at all. It will keep you awake, not to mention making you more anxious. Decaf coffee still contains theobromine, a stimulating chemical, so it is still detrimental to good sleep.

Thursday 20th October, 9.30am-12pm. £35 including a delicious coffee and cake break.

Join us for a morning's workshop at the wonderful Cannon's Ashby National Trust property and learn about the autumnal bounty in our native hedgerows. You'll look at the hedgerows through new eyes.

We'll take in a herb walk in the gardens of the property, looking at cultivated as well as wild native herbs that are abundant at this time of year.

We'll harvest some herbs to make a herbal tincture for you to take home and keep you healthy through the winter.
