A Warm Embrace of the Divine

Each month on the 1st Sunday you are invited to enter a “warm embrace of the divine” to connect with a whole host of angels – some very familiar and others less so, but all ready, able and willing to work with us and help us through the challenges of what it means to BE, right here, right now.

Each session will last an hour and will include a meditation with music and words of divine guidance. The agenda will be left up to the angels!

No experience necessary, just an open mind and heart to the loving support that is offered, to help you with the next phase of your journey.

Alison will always be accompanied by various angels in the form of her artworks, which are channelled directly from Source. They will be ready to connect to you as only they know how.

1:00pm – 3:00pm (donation-based)

Healing Trust – Healing Session

Healing in The Great Nave and Healing Information in The Welcome Cafe. 

2:30pm – 3:30pm (donation-based)

Virtues Meditation 

Join Christine Cole each month to learn the basics of her unique and uncomplicated practice.

Experience a beautiful, simple, one hour form of meditation using music and songs with a view for each participant to enjoy by paying attention to one’s own unique “inner self”.

Focus on bringing forward the Virtues from within; such as values of peace, love, lightness, compassion, calmness… the list goes on!

Tame the wandering mind by being in awareness… Christine will gently guide you back.

Just be: you are free to stay or go, with and in Love.

Share an abundance of cosmic Energy with all who care to take the time to nourish and replenish the Self.

Christine will be at The Monastery every 1st Sunday of the month… unless Divine intervention deems otherwise! Music will vary each month and may change during a session depending on her guidance from Source. Do enjoy with an open mind and heart.

Entry to the Monastery and parking are free and our lovely Welcome Café will be open all day with a range of hip and healthy refreshments.

Donations gratefully accepted to help us continue to keep the Monastery open, free to enter (and warm!)

Directions here. We hope to see you on Sunday!

*Whilst every effort is made to keep the programme updated, some sessions can be subject to changes beyond our control. If your heart is set on a particular activity, please contact us to double check the activity is running that day. Thank you, the Monastery team.
