Workshops & Talks

We offer varying wellness, healing, relaxation or self-development workshops to end your weekday on a positive note. Our workshop space is intimate and considered a sanctuary, a space for you to deeply relax, release and receive.


Everything you see around you is vibrating at a frequency, whether we hear it or not. Sound frequencies can affect us on a cellular level, influencing how we feel and function. Gong Bathing uses vibrational sound and frequency to help reduce stress, alter consciousness and create a deep sense of peace and well being for better health. Essentially you go into a deep state of meditation and relaxation and then the real work begins while you get bathed in the gentle sound waves.

Effective therapy for anxiety and depression, self-control, opening and healing the heart, fatigue, boosting energy levels, increasing vitality, processing difficult emotions, focussing on self-love and care.

Fridays 10-11am

Prajna: Evening Rituals for Happiness – with Mira Manek

Exploring evening Ayurvedic rituals for increased wellbeing

About this Event

Sip on a cup of golden saffron chai while Mira delves into the evening section of her book Prajna, creating a space which lets you ‘arrive’ home to yourself, carving out a time for doing what you love, soothing drinks and sleepy spices, evening Breathwork and deep yin stretches while listening to your favourite playlist.

How do we create an environment that allows us to slow down the moment we step through the door and slowly steeps us into sleep mode? Understanding our need to recalibrate, to come home and unwind will carry us through the next day with greater steadiness and help diffuse the impact of a crisis when it arrives.

From sound baths and reading to chanting mantras and sitting in stillness, there’s so much you can do to arrive back to yourself, to your home, to your soul.

She’ll also hold a short meditation, after which there will be a chance to discuss, meet and chat over some of Mira’s delicious cardamom fudge pieces and treats.

As a part of the £20 booking fee you will receive a copy of Mira’s new book “Prajna”.
