Commencing with a short guided meditation, followed by a sound bath featuring the healing sounds from handmade Himalayan singing bowls, Koshi wind chimes, rainstick, and other sacred sound instruments.

Please note that these sound baths will all feature the use of slowly swirling ‘nebula’ light projections on the ceiling to make for a more immersive experience in sound and light. As such, if you are photosensitive, please consider bringing a blindfold to wear.

Each sound bath at The Hope Centre costs £12 per person.

What you need to bring: Yoga mat, pillow and blanket, or a sleeping bag (as you will be lying down for the duration of the session). You may also wish to bring a bottle of water.

Please ensure that you are well-hydrated and that you do not have a full stomach.

Spaces are limited, so booking is essential. To book your place, please use the booking form on this webpage:

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

The Hope Centre Team

Foundation in Light 2020/21


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)

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

If you are interested in joining the course please contact us as soon as possible as places are limited due to social distancing considerations and we already have most places allocated to those who were due to start the course in April. Please let us know if you have any queries about the course itself or the special measures in place in relation to health and safety and the Covid 19 situation.


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.

Strength in Passing will start (one month later than originally planned) on Saturday, August 22nd. The new dates will be Saturdays;-

  • August 22
  • September 26
  • 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. 

We will have a small group this year, so we will have no difficulty in keeping 2m social distance. Masks are not mandatory (as I write) but you are welcome to wear a mask if you wish.

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


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

Coronavirus 21/03/2020

Dear Friends

The time has come when we must close the Hope Centre temporarily for all Group activities including Meditations and Therapies. This is sad but necessary and sensible.

When we have had time to meditate and consult with members we will offer further information, guidance and assistance, where needed.

We plan to take the opportunity to work in different ways during this period of physical limitation and welcome any suggestions.

Clearly our financial position will be stretched in the event of an extended period of closure but we are confident that we will be OK and will emerge from this cycle in greater strength and wisdom.

We will keep in touch via Facebook, and our website and by email.


Alison, Anna and John
