Event: Well-Being Festival

25 April 2020
Cost Free
Suitability All

Well-being is playing a part in more and more people's lives these days, and for good reason with the stress and strain of our busy, overloaded lives.

At this Well-Being Festival we can offer you a chance to leave the Saturday chores behind for a while and take part in activities to soothe both body and mind. Perhaps an old favourite like yoga or perhaps something new, like journaling.

So, come with friends or come alone and maybe make some new ones - all are welcome!

Journaling Workshops*

Everyone is talking about the power of journaling to bring calm into our chaotic lives. It combines therapeutic writing, art journaling, structured and free-writing journalling styles to help you develop your own organic journalling practice. Take part in a very special 3 hour workshop with experienced journaler and wellness coach, Grace Quantock. gracequantock.com

Workshops are £20 for a half day, 10.30am - 1.30pm. This includes all materials and tea and coffee.
