Come along to our thought-provoking talk

Are you Spiritual or Religious?
How do we hold true to our vision in these times? (Hall)
TALK with Philip Carr-Gomm

Philip, an author of books on spirituality and leader of the order of Bards, Ovates and Druids will give us an exploration of these questions.

For many of us, including H. T. Hamblin, the established religious institutions feel outmoded or restrictive, and yet we sense they hold deep truths and we sometimes yearn for the certainty and the heritage that they offer.

We live at a challenging moment in history, when the old forms seem to be dying but the new forms have not yet fully manifested. How do we hold true to our vision in these times? How do we relate to the worlds of spirituality and religion?
Cost: 12 (10 for members of the Hamblin Trust)

Finally, we have two 8-week courses starting in February:

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction begins on Monday 13th February. Mindful Self Compassion starts on Thursday 16th February. Please contact us for details.

Our new-look Health & Wellbeing Afternoon begins Wednesday 18th January. Come and enjoy a free 20-minute taster treatment of various therapies, home-made soup and a chance to socialise, followed by a talk on a health-related theme. Come for the whole afternoon or just a short while; all are very welcome.
