The Centre needs more volunteers to help it in its many functions.
We are looking for two types of volunteer.
Those that we can call on for one-off working bees, particular projects and events.
We also require ongoing volunteers who can commit to 4-5 hours on one day per week. These volunteers would help support the day to day running of the Centre including coordinating our Volunteer staff.

Holistic Pulsing with Rona Spencer
Holistic Pulsing is a mind/body therapy that uses a rhythmic rocking movement that works on many levels, allowing muscles and other tissues to 'let go'. Gentle lengthening, stretching and opening techniques are sometimes also used. Facilitated dialogue further allows you to become curious about your body and where it is holding energy
