atOne and Spiritual Events

Imagine a place where you change the moment you walk through the door. Instead of checking in your coat, you hang up your troubles and let go of everyday concerns. A place to learn how to live. A place to find yourself. It’s a special place for ordinary people.

This former Franciscan church and friary has been deconsecrated but its sacred atmosphere still remains. The peaceful healing energy and the beauty of this space now welcomes everyone from all backgrounds, faiths and beliefs.

Visitors remark that every space in The Monastery appears to be blessed with a feeling of well-being. It’s so real, you think you can touch it.

Similarly, every event and every programme of participation and learning adopts the same high principles of well-being. Whoever you are, whatever you do, we extend a warm invitation to find yourself at the Monastery soon.

Susan Roberts

Mini-Massages

Susan Roberts is a Body & Massage therapist with over 24 years experience.  She started offering mini treatments at The Monastery due to a connection she felt with the pillar of St. Leonard of Port Maurice (she quite often stands against it for some healing) it was Tony Hurley who gave her the background of the pillar to try and help to explain her connection.  She later discovered that Tony had had a statue of St. Francis “with no hands” in his office.

Learn about Feng Shui

with Vanessa Edwards

Have you ever thought about the concept that your home is a mirror of your life?

We fill our homes with artwork, ornaments and items that we collect, and they often reflect who we are and where we’ve been, as opposed to who we want to be and where we truly want to go to! Begin to understand how your home is a mirror of your life and how your choice of artwork reflects your circumstances.

Understand how to use this pattern of energy to it’s fullest potential to benefit your future. Work with this concept to enable you to have a life review and re-style and jump start your life. Realise how to create a nurturing sanctuary within your home, and help support yourself as you move towards your dreams and goals. Learn how to bring your life into total balance and harmony and embrace a future of opportunity and unlimited potential. Embrace the gift of a new pair of eyes and
be in love with life!

Spiritual Events and Mind, Body & Spirit Weekends

 
 
BSSK Mind, Body & Spirit October 2014 Event


"What a venue! Arguably the most spiritual place in the UK to hold a MBS event...The Monastery, Manchester!" BSSK Events

This will be our 11th show at The Monastery, and once again for the October 2014 show, we have stands fitted into every conceivable part of this wonderful building, to bring you a wide range of exhibitors to talk to and explore - some are newcomers to BSSK, drawn by the magic of the event, others BSSK regulars who do many of our shows during a year.

Next we have a huge choice of free lectures throughout the weekend and a wide variety of paid workshops lasting around 2 hours each. These include all manner of exciting things, from psychic development to angels! We use the Private Chapel and various conference rooms in the Monastery for these, some of which seat only small numbers. The two largest rooms are reserved for the free lectures to give the maximum number of free seats, but advanced booking is recommended for all lectures and workshops, even the free ones, to avoid disappointment.

The Monastery has free parking which will be stewarded, overflow parking just across the road, and if that all fills up, there is ample on-road parking in the vicinity. If driving, although only five minutes by car from the city centre, the Monastery is between the outer and inner ring road, so it is not necessary to drive through the city centre, if like me, such a thing would be your worst nightmare!

If taking the train, on reaching Manchester Picadilly, take the local train to a station called Ashbury's. This is the closest to the Monastery. The station called Gorton is actually further to walk. There is also a bus stop right outside the Monastery, with buses every 20 minutes or so.

At previous shows, visitors came from all over the country, even from as far away as Somerset and Aberdeen, and found it certainly worth the trip. Why not book a B&B and have a whole weekend devoted to you - your Mind, Body and Spirit!
