3 Principles for Carers

Online on Thursdays @ 10 – 12pm for 6 weeks from 20 Jan 2022
(with a break for half term)
This simple and profound understanding, called ‘The 3 Principles of Innate Health’, points us back to our own ‘built-in’ mental health and resilience, and helps us experience more peace of mind, clarity, ease, connection and creativity. This 6-week online course (via Zoom) will ‘nourish’ you as an individual, and as a carer; it is a chance to settle down and ‘see’ something different about whatever your challenging thoughts, feelings, and circumstances are presenting.

We all have the ability to access mental wellbeing, exactly as we are, right now, because mental wellbeing is our natural state! Please note these are online sessions – if you are interested in face-to-face sessions, please do get in touch to tell us!
