Wednesday Evening Opening Hours to Change


After monitoring usage of the Library, we have decided to close the library at 6:00pm instead of 6:30pm on Wednesday evenings. The earlier closing time will commence from Wednesday 4th April.

This earlier closing time is due to very poor usage of the library during this last half hour of opening.

We apologise if this causes you any inconvenience.

Wednesday Evening Talk - Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

A free talk by Minaxi Odedra.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you suffer from stress and/or anxiety? Do you live with chronic pain?

Who regulates your heart beat? When you need to act quickly - fight or flight where do you get the sudden burst of energy and strength from? Who extracts the nutrients and nourishments from the food you eat and utilise it into energy, new cells and maintenance of your body. It is the innate intelligence within us, within every cell in our body, within everyone of us that is in charge of our body and controls these. Trauma, stress, and illness (the natural fluctuations of life) unbalance the body’s state of health, but health is always at the core of the body’s intention.

Would you like to reconnect to the intelligence within you?

Would you like to reconnect to the healthy self?

Come and find out about Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.

Wednesday 28th March 2018 at 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm)
