Following the success of a series of ‘Soulful Sunday’ workshops this year, a date for the final event of 2023 to promote positive mental health and mindfulness has been announced for Sunday 10th December in the city of Bath.

‘Soulful Sunday’ is an afternoon of meditation that aims to dust off those ‘end-of-the-week’ cobwebs and encourages those that attend to feel much more positive and hopeful about day-to-day life.  

Through the practice of kirtan yoga, people attending will be encouraged to take up mantra meditation – a practice originally from India but now popular throughout the world.

Nathan Hartley, who heads up the team at the Bath & North East Somerset Faith Foundation, is organising the event. He said:

“Life is often far too hectic. Work, family and other responsibilities rarely give us the opportunity to take time out for ourselves.

‘Me time’ is essential! If we don’t look after ourselves what good are we to those around us?

Our Soulful Sunday event is an afternoon of blissful meditation that, through the practice of chanting and yoga, will be an oasis for anyone who comes along.”

Bath’s next ‘Soulful Sunday’ will be held on Sunday 10th December, 2.30pm – 5.30pm at the Percy Community Centre, New King Street, Bath (BA1 2BN). As well as mantra meditation those attending will be treated to a free nutritious, vegetarian/vegan meal.

“We want to feed the body as well as the soul,” added Nathan, “These Soulful Sunday events are free of charge, and anyone is welcome to attend.”
