Mon 2 June at The Dragon Café

An Oasis of Calm springs to life this Monday
In June we will be partnering with the Mental Health Foundation’s Anxiety 2014 Festival, and creating a place of calm contemplation away from the often anxious world we live in. Random Acts of Mindfulness between 1 – 4 pm and SoundWorks at 4.30 pm – which will introduce us to singing bowls – are just two of the many activities throughout the day, as we also celebrate the start of Creativity and Wellbeing Week (2-11 June). Regular groups will continue and we shall also engage with the festival’s theme in the first part of our Anxiety Dialogues at 6.30 pm. Take your mind and body to a place of peace.
