Mindfulness & Meditation

Kathryn Gillespie

After battling with my own experiences of stress, anxiety, food intolerances and auto-immune conditions I ended up using the therapeutic healing Vitali-Chi system, which started a journey that changed my life around.

Along with a passion for helping others, and after seeing the positive changes in myself, I have become a Vitali-Chi Relax leader running these special Relax mindful meditation sessions across the Colchester area for people seeking to enhance their health and wellbeing, and reduce stress and anxiety.

I help people by making them feel more calm, positive, centred and vibrant with the power of my calming voice and a specially designed copper wellbeing system. I deliver specially created guided visualisations accompanied with beautiful solfeggio vibrational music and relaxing AromaFrequencies.

Having learnt from my own experience, there’s nothing more important than taking time out for yourself. It can make the difference between a calm, healthy body and mind, and one that is stressed, worn out and no good to anyone – especially yourself!

You cannot serve from an empty vessel!

Mindfulness for Chronic Pain at the Manor Health & Wellness Centre

Eight-week course, meeting on Sunday afternoons from 2 – 4 pm (begins 1st March 2020).

Living with chronic pain can be isolating, debilitating, stressful and demoralising.  Sometimes even exercising can lead to flare ups and fatigue, making us withdraw from activity, which in turn affects our fitness and wellbeing.  Mindfulness meditation and practices have been shown in studies to be effective for helping chronic pain sufferers cope with their condition more effectively and in some cases reduce incidences of flare-ups and inflammation.  This introductory eight-week course on Mindfulness for Chronic Pain will cover the principles of mindfulness in relation to health in mind and body and provide a variety of practices designed to calm the nervous system, ease pain and help with fear and negative thoughts relating to both pain and illness.

Course dates:   1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th March & 5th, 19th 26th April 2020.

Course fee: £150.00 (includes resources)

Yoga & Spirituality  –  six month personal development course.

Course dates for 2020 (10th May, 7th June, 12th July, 13th Sept, 11th Oct, 15th Nov)

Bhakti Yoga is the Yoga of Devotion and for some a doorway to spiritual enlightenment.  Many of the yoga practices that we know from our modern day classes seem to have a practical health and wellbeing oriented purpose to them but we don’t all experience them or practice them as a pathway to spiritual growth.  Nevertheless, many ancient yogic texts speak of enlightenment, discovery of the Self, the loss of the ego and ultimately of union with the Divine. Indeed, in past centuries/millennia, yoga was often taught only to priests, monks and spiritual seekers.

This six month course (1 full Sunday per month from 10 am – 4pm) examines some of the classical yogic texts concerned with spiritual enlightenment and discovery of the so-called Self, with a view to understanding more about the origins of yoga and the historical/philosophical and religious influences that have shaped it.  Students will also learn yogic practices and concentration/meditation techniques that enable us to find the quiet space within for either self-nourishment and personal growth or for the purposes of devotion/connectivity to God / Higher Consciousness.

Please note, this course is not “religious” in terms of being oriented to one particular faith. It is open to persons of any faith or agnostics and those with an open, enquiring mind.

Suitable for those with at least two years of consistent yoga practice. 

Course fee £325.00
