Event Reminder: Mindfulness Taster Session - 8 December 2014

Space to Be will be hosting a mindfulness taster session from 7:30-9:00pm on Monday, 8 December 2014 at the Emmanuel Centre, the new hall at the back of St James Catholic Church in Twickenham. The cost of the taster is £5 and booking is essential.
