Wednesday 6 September - Dancing our Prayers    A Taster Session

2.30 – 3.30 pm in the Chapel.

Dancing our Prayers is an opportunity to use simple dances prayerfully; dances that have inspired people of various cultures for centuries, as well as modern choreographies in a similar style. They help bring mind, body and spirit into harmony and so bring inner peace. The dances are taught and no previous experience or dance ability is necessary. Comfortable flat-heeled shoes advised. Led by Judy Turner (tel. 0191 3842147 for further details)

And if interested, there will be regular two-weekly sessions on Wednesdays, 13 and 27 September, 11 and 25 October, 8 and 22 November and 6 December from 2.15 to 3.45 pm, in the chapel.
