We are very pleased to announce our intention that the next AGM will be the weekend of 27th and 28th of April 2019.
The Saturday will be a day of mindful movement led by Helen Stephenson and the Sunday will have a similar format to this year, with the formal business of the AGM before lunch, followed by a Connection Event (a Practice and Networking opportunity) led by Rebecca Crane in the afternoon.
The weekend will be held at the Oblate Retreat Centre, Wistaston Hall, 89 Broughton Lane, Crewe CW2 8JS, United Kingdom
Saturday – Mindful Movement Day
The mindful movement Saturday of the AGM will be led by Helen Stephenson, who has spent a life time dedicated to the practice and study of yoga, Pilates, mindfulness, meditation and counselling.
Helen has been teaching yoga at Gaia House for over ten years. She is a level 3 mindfulness teacher and is qualified as a trainer of mindfulness teachers.
Helen is part of the team at Mindfulness:MK
Sunday morning AGM
The formal business of the AGM will be chaired by Per Norrgren, Chair of FoB committee.
The agenda for the AGM will be formalised nearer the date.
The AGM is the opportunity for members to engage with the committee, make their voices heard and be involved in shaping the future of the group.
May we respectfully remind you that the AGM is for member-only participation. Non-members are welcome to be silent spectators and do not have voting rights.
Sunday afternoon Connection Event
The Connection Event is facilitated by Rebecca Crane, director of the CMRP.
The afternoon (from 13:00 to 16:30) will provide an opportunity for silent personal practice with the gentle guidance of Becca Crane. This event is offered in the same spirit as all mindfulness-based approaches with the intention to co-create our time together. We will offer a forum for reflection on issues that were live for you during the practice periods, and opportunities for connection with your co-participants. We hope you will accept our invitation to come with an open mind and a willingness to connect with other Friends of Bangor. We look forward to welcoming you to this event.
It is advisable to dress in loose, warm, clothing that is comfortable for lying, sitting and movement, being particularly careful to ensure you are not restricted in your waist area. Please bring your foam mat / blanket for doing work lying on the floor as well as blanket to cover you for warmth. We shall be using chairs for group discussions, and you may choose to sit on these to meditate if you find it more comfortable. If you prefer, you can bring firm cushions for sitting meditation, or a meditation stool if you have one.
There is a small charge to members for attending the event weekend to help meet the costs of the venue.
