She will explain how crystals work, how to Cleanse crystals, and a basic crystal layout on each chakra. Crystal healing releases any energy blockages. The idea is that crystals help unblock, rebalance and direct energy where it is most needed, gently supporting the body to heal in a therapeutic way. Crystals are placed on and around the body to help restore this balance. Every crystal has a different healing function. Free event, All Welcome!
Monday 2nd Mar Get Together Mondays - Male Cancer Awareness Monday 2nd March 10.30am - 12.30pm Get Together Mondays - Male Cancer Awareness Our Get Together Monday on 2nd March is hosted by Orchid, the UK’s leading registered charity dedicated to supporting men and their families who are affected by male-specific cancers - prostate, testicular, and penile. Over 47, 700 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in the UK and there are 12,000 deaths from this disease annually. 1 in 4 black men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives and are more likely to get prostate cancer than other men, who have a 1 in 8 chance of getting this disease. However, only 14% of black men are aware of their higher risk compared to 54% among white men. By raising awareness of this disease and educating men and their loved ones about risk factors, signs and symptoms, treatment options, dealing with aftercare issues and about the information and support services available, we aim to make a real difference.Please join us for a FREE awareness talk and FREE resources
