It is amazing to think how we are at week 9 already. Exams are in just over 6 weeks and no doubt those stress levels are beginning to rise with assignments piling up. More reason for you to come and spend some quiet time at our Monday meditation to hit the reset button to allow you to focus on the task at hand. It is at the usual time and place. See our events calendar for details. Meditation is open to everyone.
Another way to help unwind is to join us for our Movie Night screening. We will be screening ‘Inside Out’ so that you can increase your levels of Joy and reduce your Sadness 😉 Food and drinks will also be provided (guaranteed to boost your levels of happiness :))
So come along for a fun-filled night with entertainment, food, and (old and new) friends! Open to everyone.
When: Thursday, 5th May (Week 9) 5pm-7pm
