The Diploma in Holistic Reflexology began in April 2014 with 7 students. The ocurse is closed for new students but will run again next year. The 12 month course runs over 14 Saturdays. For further details please contact Alison Sargent on 1061 973 9130 or e mail manchester@lightohope.co.uk

We have just completed some taster sessions of  Meditation at Trafford Housing Trust and hope that we may do more in the future. Many companies are becoming aware of the benefits to their staff and thus their productivity and attendance records thorugh the use of simple relaxation, meditation and mindfulness techniques. We welcome the opportunity to connect with other local employers to discuss benefits and training in this area.



Strength in Passing begins 26th July 2014 with the first of 4 Workshops dealing with issues of Life and Death, illness and bereavement. We will be addressing these matters from an Holistic perspective in a healing and supportive environment.

We have recently established a partnership with Trafford Carers for whom we are providing  regular meditation groups once a month on the 2nd Thurday mornings at 11am.

We have taken on a couple of new volunteers who are helping out on reception for a few hours each week. We really appreciate any help from volunteers and would welcome contact from anyone who feels drawn to our work and can spare a few hours each week.

Baby Massage and Baby Yoga will no longer be running from the Hope Centre on Tuesdays. We wish Angela success in the future.

We will be running a 2 day TONING COURSE on 19th July and 16th August. For details please e mail the Hope Centre on manchester@lightofhope.co.uk or call. This powerful and ancient practice can be used to improve well being on all levels by using particular tones and techniques to balance the chakra system. Each day is £40 or you may pay £70 in advance.

We now have Volunteers covering most sessions during the week, having recently welcomed several new faces. Many thanks to all who have connected and support our work.

We will be having a CRYSTAL MEDITATION on the Solstice – Saturday, 21st June at 6.00pm. The mediation is suitable for experienced folk – the crystal configuration creates a higher vibration which may not be appropriate for those new to meditation. Doors open at 5.45pm, payment by donation. Any queries please  email or call the centre. No need to book but it owuld help if we have an idea of numbers.
