The Around-the-World Wellbeing Camp took place at the Gurdwara (SCCYC), St. James Mill Road, Northampton, on Sunday 15 October between 1 and 6pm. It was organised by Helen Puk of the Northampton Interfaith Forum, with financial support from the Northampton Community Foundation (NCF). The camp offered a range of alternative wellness therapies, including Reiki healing, sound and crystal therapies, and different types of massage. Other therapies on offer included meditation, breathing control, yoga, Tai Chi and a mindfulness session. Over thirty people attended, of all ages and from different communities within Northampton.
Helen said, ’It has been a very successful camp, and a lot of people have tried a range of wellness therapies for the first time. I am grateful to Pindy Kaur of the SCCYC for helping to organise this camp, and to the NCF for their support. I intend to plan more such camps, each with a different focus.’
Daniel Tabor, Chair of NIFF, added, ’There was a lovely atmosphere, and everyone enjoyed sampling the therapies on offer. Congratulations to Helen and her team for making it such a success!’
