Covid-19: Activities Update

We have suspended our public activity including the Sanctary meditations in the interests of Public Health and are closely following the unfolding advice on the Corona virus from the UK Government and Public Health England.   Please do continue to take time for self reflection and meditation, as a calm mind is very helpful at such times.  Thank you for your continued support.

Take a look at the glorious grounds! Come and experience for yourself – current covid guidelines permitting of course.

At the moment we are closed and beavering away behind the scenes on essential renovations so you can enjoy this magnificent place again as soon as possible.

Thought for Today

The Spiritual Aspect Of Healthcare

Silence, happiness, love and blessings are important aspects. Happiness leads to good health. It is only you who can give this medicine to yourself. Some bring illness to themselves through anger, greed, unfullfilled desires, expectations, suppression of feelings and relationships not based on true love. Look in your heart, you will know where your illness comes from.

There are three ingredients for a long and healthy life: live with attention but without worry; use time in a worthwhile way; keep your thoughts pure, positive and filled with strength.
