Bournemouth local support group

Meetings and events

Date: 7 January 2019
Time: 7pm - 9pm
Venue: Chic Academy, 70a Heathwood Road, Bournemouth, BH9 2JZ
Topic: Transcendental Meditation 

Transcendental Meditation is a simple technique practised 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably. You can do it on a train or a plain or the comfort of your own home. It is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. Over six million people of all ages, cultures and religions have learned TM. TM has scientifically proven health benefits. Hundreds of published research studies on the TM technique have documented its effectiveness on stress and anxiety, brain function, cardiovascular health and more. The TM technique allows your mind to easily settle inward, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness. It is completely different from other forms of meditation as it involves no concentrating or focusing, no trying to "empty the mind".

Topic: Therapists Safety with Lorraine and Sharon

Lorraine and Sharon from Butterfly Therapies will be highlighting the issues and risks around therapists safety: a recent issue close to us.

Time: 7pm - 9pm
Venue: Chic Academy, 70a Heathwood Road, Bournemouth, BH9 2JZ
Topic: Reiki with Cameron Newton

Cameron will cover the history of Reiki and how it has developed in Europe, what the benefits are and who can become attuned to Reiki. He will talk about personal experience and how it has helped him and how eventually he became a complementary therapist because of Reiki. He will also speak about the benefits of complementary therapists becoming attuned to Reiki and how that would enhance the therapies they already offer. He will also do a meditation including Reiki and could show how we can all use and channel our energy to protect ourselves and to improve our practice as therapists.
