Meetings, meetings

Posted on: February 26, 2009

Well I’ve had another busy couple of days – last night I went along to a meeting of The Global Wellness Circle in Milton Keynes.

It was another great evening with extremely interesting talks given by Ann Peckham of The Real Renaissance Cafe Ltd which is a Social Enterprise that aims to help people gain confidence, skills and qualifications and provides custom made buffets that are freshly prepared; and a range of cooked and raw foods that are healthy for the body and the pocket.  Ann even brought along samples of wonderful dairy/wheat/sugar free deserts for us to try!

Jayne Stevens a holistic therapist who offers many therapies including massage and reiki gave a wonderful talk about the benefits of Indian Head Massage and even gave one lucky volunteer a taster demonstration session.  I was so impressed that I have booked to have an Indian Head Massage next week!

Lastly, Karrin Lawrence of The Coach Collection gave us a practical session of looking at “wellbeing” and what is stopping us achieving personal wellbeing.

The next Milton Keynes Circle meeting will be held in April – feel free to email me for details.

Today, I have attended a really useful Business Development Workshop for Independent Midwives which was hosted by Virginia Howes of Kent Midwifery Practice.
Thanks very much Virginia – lots of useful ideas.
