Fee Increases from March 2023

January 2023
Important Notice – Fee increases from 1st March 2023

The Light of Hope Community Interest Company is a non-profit organization, established in 2003 and run by volunteers (we have no paid employees). We are a company which is “Limited by Guarantee” which means we have no shareholders, no dividends and all our funds must be used to further our stated aims of:
• Teaching Meditation
• Providing Holistic Therapies
• Training Therapists
We have just come to the end of our energy contracts and are having to absorb a 4-fold increase in rates. We cannot sustain this level of increase without increasing fees – which we do reluctantly as we have always sought to keep our fees affordable for as many people as possible. Our Therapy fees have not increased for over 20 years!

The following increases will come into effect on 1st March 2023:
• £4 evenings, £3 lunchtime (£6.50 for 2 sessions in the week and £7.50 for 3 sessions)
• Will increase by 10 – 15% (see individual course details)
• Our standard fee of £25 will increase to £30 for 1-hour sessions (£35 for 1 hour massage)
• Other fees for longer sessions will increase similarly – see individual details and speak to your therapist. Individual Therapists may still offer individual concessions as they do at present. These concessions are discretionary and come directly from the income of the Therapists (their room rent and product fees are the same irrespective of any concession given).
We hope you will appreciate the necessity to apply these increases and will continue to support the Hope Centre. We have survived recent closures and limitations thanks to your support, and hopefully will be able continue with our work into the future.

IF you may wish to help us financially or may wish to consider other voluntary help, please email us on
We have a LOCAL GIVING facility where donations (regular or one-off) can be made (and enhanced with Gift Aid).

We are delighted that all our activities are now available again, although we are maintaining certain precautions and protocols to reduce risk to our guests and staff. Courses are back in progress. We are hoping to complete Holistic Reflexology Diploma , Foundation in Light and Crystal Healing Diploma by the end of January and will return to our previous patterns in April when new courses will begin.

Regular Meditations are continuing ( retaining social distance), with energy alignments available again before and after meditations in the evening.

All Holistic Therapies are again available, with therapists and clients agreeing on what PPE they are mutually comfortable with, now that there are no mandatory requirements.

Mask wearing is now voluntary in the Hope Centre for events such as Meditation and on Course Days.

We continue to practice our enhanced cleaning regime and still maintain 30 minutes between clients to allow for cleansing and greeting clients in order to check temperatures and encourage sanitising.

We have tried throughout the pandemic to ensure the safety of our guests and staff whilst keeping open as many facilities as we were allowed. This has proved to be helpful to many people, and thankfully we have has very few staff or guests who have been ill.

Many thanks to all who have supported us through these challenging times. We hope that many more will have the confidence to return to the Hope Centre as we move safely towards greater freedom and positive social interaction.

Let us look forward to the future with HOPE

Best wishes to all

National Lockdown January 4th 2021

In light of the latest ‘National Lockdown: Stay at Home’ Government announcement at 8pm on 4th January 2021, sadly The Hope Centre is now unable to offer the meditation sessions until further notice in addition to the therapies and courses with the exception of Acupuncture which, at the time of writing, can continue. Please contact Jason at JHS Acupuncture for further details

This will be kept under review over the coming weeks so please keep checking our Website for updates as the situation unfolds.  

Thank you for your continued support and please don’t forget you can access our Hope Centre Manchester YouTube Channel meditations which are available at all times: 


Update 7/8/2020


We have had a few enquiries following the latest guidelines and restrictions announced a couple of days ago.

We are still running our normal sessions at the usual times (Tuesday 7.30, Wednesday, 12.45 and Thursday 7.30. We are not affected by the recent Greater Manchester additional restrictions which relate to residential and not commercial premises.

We are however affected by the national guidelines which now require masks to be worn in “Places of Worship”” and Community Centres etc (as well as several other types of premises). The new rules come into force on 8 August so from next week masks will need to be worn for Meditation unless you are exempt for medical reasons.

Apart from the masks we continue to operate as we have done for the past few weeks. Numbers are limited and guests need to sanitise on arrival. We are not doing refreshments, alignments or congregating in the communal room. 2m social distance is maintained in the meditation room and people will arrive and leave keeping that distance.

The areas of the centre including chairs, door handles, lockers etc are sanitised after each session to minimise the risks to guests and staff.

We look forward to welcoming you back. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards

Foundation in Light 2023/24


We are delighted that the Foundation in Light course will begin another cycle in April.

The Foundation in Light is a unique course in the spiritual understanding and working knowledge necessary to nurture and develop a life in healing – whether for yourself and those around you, or to take a healing path into a career as a therapist.  This course provides all the building blocks for a Foundation to reach into, and towards, all your potentials. Many students have found the course to be truly life changing.

The course is over 12 months and there will be a Certificate of Completion which assists entry on all The Light of Hope CIC College of Light Diploma courses. The ‘Foundation’ course is experiential and aims to develop good spiritual ‘housekeeping’ of both a personal and environmental nature, and will be of interest to all, whether or not a career in healing is the ultimate goal.

The ‘Foundation’ course encompasses all aspects of personal energy, meditation and self-healing techniques. It brings an appreciation and understanding of holistic therapies – why and how they work. Students will experience healing – both giving and receiving.  Dimensions beyond the physical will be covered – including guides, angels, masters; life beyond the physical and connections to those who have passed to the light.

An understanding of the many levels of life beyond our physical and planetary nature is key to our role on the earth at this time and the course aims to give the individual a very real perspective to their own place in the divine plan.

The course involves one full Saturday each month (Foundation Days)  and one Monday evening 7pm -8.30pm for  ‘Steps’ teachings.

Course Structure

  • Each student will be allocated a personal mentor to guide and support their development
  • Students, as part of their personal development, will be required to attend a minimum of two evening group meditations per month. They may attend as many meditations as they wish.
  • There will be a student card pass ‘Ticket to Light’ which will access all available events to ‘Foundation’ students.
  • The ‘Foundation in Light’ course is non-denominational and open to all irrespective of religious, social or academic background
  • Students who do not register for the total ‘Foundation’ course may attend each study day or event separately and individually, and pay accordingly.
  • If students miss any days or evening presentations then they can catch up the following year without additional charge.

COURSE FEES: 10% deposit of £58 and 12 monthly payments of £43.30 by standing order (total payable £580.00). OR

Full payment in advance £493 (15% discount)

Concessions: 10% discount for full-time Students, Senior Citizens and those receiving Income Support. For more information or to reserve your place, please contact:

Light of Hope Meditations on YouTube

Hi Friends


You will no doubt be aware that the Hope Centre Manchester is now closed and all its activities suspended until further notice due to the Coronavirus outbreak that started in March 2020.

If you wish to continue to meditate regularly with your Hope Centre Manchester friends you can now do this on YouTube, as we are now in the process of uploading a new guided meditation for each day of the month with the project name of ‘meditations31’.  

You may wish to meditate at the usual Hope Centre times:

Tuesday evenings 7.30

Wednesday lunchtimes 12.45

Thursday evenings 7.30  

The meditations will be available at any time you wish. The most important thing is to keep meditating regularly, every day if possible!

Most of the meditations are about 18-20 minutes in length, with a shorter ‘music only’ middle section. These shorter versions were originally written to give people the option to meditate at work in their breaks or at lunchtime. The length of each meditation is displayed on the titles for each piece. 

To locate the meditations simply search on YouTube for:

“Hope Centre Manchester”

Or click on this link:


We hope you will enjoy and benefit from the meditations. If you wish to make a donation to help the Hope Centre through the current challenging time our Local Giving link is:

With kind regards
