Update 7/8/2020

Hi

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

The Hope Centre Team

Foundation in Light 2020/21

 NEW COURSE BEGINS SEPTEMBER 5th  2020

We are delighted that the Foundation in Light course can recommence in September – a 6 month delay as  we have had to close down all our activities in response to the Covid 19 pandemic. The course will be limited to a maximum of 8 students in order to ensure 2m social distancing and will operate within the latest government guidance  and safety protocols to minimise risk and prioritise the safety of our guests and staff. 

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.

COURSE FEES: 10% deposit of £52.80 and 12 monthly payments of £39.60 by standing order (total payable £528.00). OR

Full payment in advance £448.80. (15% discount)

STRENGTH IN PASSING 2020

STRENGTH IN PASSING 2020 
We are delighted that we can now go ahead and plan our 2020/21 courses and can now finalise our systems and protocols in line with government guidelines to minimise risk and maintain a safe environment for our guests and staff.

  • October 31
  • November 28

The cost is the same as before. We can now accept contactless or chip and pin payments for those who wish to pay each day.

The maximum number this year will be 8 of which  half have already been allocated, so please let us know asap if you wish to secure a place this year.

Light of Hope Meditations on YouTube

Hi Friends

MEDITATIONS ON YOUTUBE

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

Tai Chi and Qi Gong

The last lesson of Tai Chi and Qi Gong will be Friday 13th of December 2019.

Jason has decided to take a break from teaching so until further notice there will be no Tai Chi lessons at the Hope Centre.

I wish all the best to my students and hopefully will return to teaching sometime in the future but at this time my energies are focused in different areas.

Grow your Tenner! Donate to the Light of Hope

Dear friends,

We are delighted to again be taking part in this wonderful fundraising campaign which, since 2012, has raised over £7 million for local charities and community groups.

The Hope Centre Manchester is run entirely by volunteers who give their time in the running of the Centre and support of its many events. All funds we raise through donations will enable us to continue to support local projects, such as young offenders, carers and local families for whom previous funding is no longer available.

Last year we raised nearly £1000 which has made a huge contribution in supporting our work with these local groups.

How do you make a donation to the Hope Centre?

If you can support the work of the Hope Centre in the local community, please visit our Grow Your Tenner webpage at www.localgiving.org/lightofhope between the 11th December and the 10th January to make your donation.

You can either make a one off donation by clicking ‘Donate Now’ on the page or you also have the option to make a regular monthly donation over a 12-month period by clicking ‘Give Monthly’.

This year the Grow your Tenner Fund is matching monthly donations for a full 6 months for
donators who set up a monthly donation for a year.

We are extremely grateful for all donations, both one-off and monthly in support of our work.

Please share with friends and family and many thanks in advance for any support you can offer.

The Trustees and Members
The Light of Hope
