sound baths

A Sound Bath will connect you deeply to the sounds found in nature. Every day we are exposed to environmental noise and interference that can effect our equilibrium. People talk of sound therapy retuning our bodies.

If you haven’t yet experienced the healing effects of sound on your mind and body we can’t recommend it highly enough.

Mel Lowe will be hosting our next sound bath in the New Year – date to be confirmed.

Tickets for monthly and annual members cost £15. For everyone else, tickets are £18. Tickets can be purchased for this session, by clicking here.

workshops

the art of settling – with simon heale – saturday january 29th, 4pm

We are so excited to be able to introduce our community to Simon Heale, the host of the ‘Settle with Simon’ podcast, who promises that anyone who comes along to this introductory workshop, will leave with the ability to start a daily meditation practice.


  In this 90-minute session Simon will introduce you to the practices of insight meditation to gain an understanding of what it is to be human and how we can use this practice to cultivate a healthier way of living.   Simon will help you understand: – What are thoughts?
– Why do we have feelings?
– How to be with the body?
– How to take these practices into our day to day lives?

Spaces are £19 and can be booked via this link. The room will not be heated. Please bring your own mat and anything you may need to aid sitting comfortably.

We are thrilled to finally be introducing Simon’s meditation workshop to our schedule at The Good Rooms as we know that enhancing your meditation practice only helps to enhance your yoga practice, and vice versa.

Testimonials from two Hornsey Food Bank users:

– “I’m 60 and on income support. After my bills, my money is all gone. I look forward to this every Thursday.”
