Trying to work from home, while home schooling and keeping an eye on everything else, can leave you totally frazzled!

Some meditation time may be helpful and indeed studies have shown that it can boost your energy and reduce stress levels.  So why not come and try a Taketime meditation?

Join us the last Friday of the month in February, March and April for a guided mediation.

These meditations provide a calm and comfortable space in which to meet God.

Facilitated by Fiona Fidgin, Lorraine Darlow and Rachel McCallam from the Learning Network and Clive McKie from Taketime.
