    Gaunts the house

    Leave the mobile phone and tablet behind, forget the gizmos and gadgets and see how it feels to come to the peace and tranquillity of the Countryside for a three day retreat. Bring your walking shoes and all weather gear and take yourself off for early morning woodland walks. Hear the birdsong and see deer bounding across the dewy luscious grassland.
    Included in the price are all wholesome fresh vegetarian meals, unlimited tea, coffee, biscuits and fresh fruit.
    There are plenty of books to choose from and what could be a more pleasurable time spent than in front of a log fire in the library with a good book.
    The charming small town of Wimborne with river running through and famous minster is a mere 3 miles away. Fabulous small and independent shops are littered around the town, a perfect opportunity to grab your loved ones their Christmas presents.

    Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling.

    Join Scania for a Full Moon Gong Bath at Gaunts House 7-8pm

    Relax and unwind.

    The Gong is one of man’s most powerful and oldest transformational and therapeutic instruments. It has been used for ritual, ceremony, prayer, and meditation since the Bronze Age. Its sound is relaxing and calming, centering and energising, transforming and healing. Gongs have been used in yoga, sound meditation, and vibrational therapy from the distant past to present.

    ARRIVE

    Arrive at the venue and allow yourself time to settle. Bring something comfy to lay on, pillow, blanket and water. A brief explanation of what will happen in the hour will take place.

    THE GONG BATH

    Scania will play the gongs for around 45-50mins and end with some softer sounds. These sounds drift into silence. The Gong is struck to signify the end of the session.

    THE END

    Allowing the silence to wash over you. Then after about 5 mins you are invited to come around in your own time, no need to rush or hurry.

    HOME CARE

    It’s always a good idea to drink water after the session. Allow time to check in how you are feeling and allowing yourself time to integrate the session and what it has meant to you. Dreams can be interesting after a Gong Bath!

    This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them and the impact it’s having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking new documentary film that pulls back the curtain on an unseen part of our world and asks us each to consider, who pays the price for our clothing?

    Treat yourself to a day of nourishment and re-connection. Slow down in the beautiful ballroom of Gaunt's House.

    This day aims to introduce you to Chen style Tai Chi as a means of developing self awareness, increasing energy levels and grounding ourselves within the busyness of life. The movement sessions will be interspersed with guided mindfulness meditations to come back to stillness and back to the breath. All ages and abilities are welcome. Whether you have a regular movement or meditation practice in place or you are keen to try something new.

    Gaunt's house will provide a delicious, healthy vegetarian/vegan lunch and Linda and Stuart will provide healthy snacks and herbal teas throughout the day

    The Tai Chi sessions will be guided by Stuart Ward who is a 12th generation lineage holder and disciple to Grandmaster Kongjie Gou. The Mindfulness will be guided by Linda Thomas who studied a 2 year post-graduate programme in teaching mindfulness at the university of Bangor.

    Both are passionate about what they do and would love to share this with a group of like-minded people.

    Looking forward to seeing some familiar and new faces. Please private message Linda for any queries or further information about the day lindylou_28@hotmail.com
