Movement Medicine at Yew Lane

The first of the Movement Medicine sessions are being held at Cross at Yew Lane today – the first four sessions to be held every Monday in January from 10am -12.30pm are all FREE. If these taster sessions prove popular we’ll be trying to schedule more in from March.

“…A time to build”


“There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:

 a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
 a time to tear down and a time to build,

a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
  a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
 a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
  a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
  a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

These words from Ecclesiastes remind us that in nature, and in life, things change, it talks about the seasons of change that are all too familiar to those of us who garden.

At Yew Lane the building season is entering an exciting new phase – as well as significant work in the front garden, we hope in the next year to also refurbish and upgrade the kitchen and begin work on developing a second and completely new activity room. But as well as this physical building work we’re also looking at new activities and new sessions to take us forward into 2013, these include:

  • Thursday afternoon Space to Grow gardening and cooking sessions.
  • “Movement Medicine” dance for women (hopefully to start in January 2013)
  • Songs for the Soul singing sessions (Next session: 30th November. 7-9pm)

In  all this we are looking to build a “family” – not of course one built on birth relationships and genetics, but one based on people wanting to be together, grow with each other; share, care, love and support for each other. We don’t imagine that all our family will be Christians, or even that they will be of any faith, we simply want to offer the opportunity to be part of it everyone who wants it ….. so if that’s you we’ll look forward to seeing you.
