Finding a fresh perspective on the game of life

There’s a definite wellbeing buzz here on Girls Around Town this month, with Claire Clements and Louise Hallam in the studio earlier today talking about blissful balance and Alison Harris offering hints and tips for healthy eating habits in two weeks’ time.

Completing the trifecta, Sunita Passi will be joining June next Sunday to share details of an upcoming event in Nottingham and a brand new centre she’s just opened in the beautiful Vale of Belvoir, both of which focus on different aspects of – yes, you guessed it – wellness…

From 7.15pm to 10.45pm on Friday 11 October, she’ll be hosting Create Your Future, a lively exploration of authenticity and how to be more of yourself, whatever form that takes in your life.

During the evening Jamie Catto, whose hit career with Faithless is matched by his enthusiastic approach to spirituality and relationships, will be sharing some of his adventures and what they’ve taught him.

Jamie’s workshops attract people from far afield and, for this one, he’ll be joined by other health and business experts in a panel discussion and Q&A session designed to help participants look forward to a fresh perspective on the game of life.

There’ll be news from Sunita too about her Wellness Centre, now up and running at The Engine Yard following its launch and open day on Sunday 11 August.

In a tranquil spot close to Belvoir Castle, the centre is a place where you can unplug from the world and enjoy a range of classes and treatments with some of the region’s most skilful therapists, from ayurvedic massages, facials and body scrubs to yoga, meditation and more…

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online between 10am and 12 noon to find out how to take care of your mind, body and emotions through these natural processes of healing.

And how, with a little help from Jamie, you can discover ways to make more of yourself and your life.

Whatever it is we do, we owe it to ourselves to be the best we can be. One blissful consequence is that allows us to support others to do the same – the effects of self-care ripple through everything we do – Sunita Passi

Time to smell the roses

It’s Fiona’s turn to take the chair again this Sunday, when she joins June and Tina to talk about all things aromatic with guest Julie Payne of Naturally Tip to Toe

A complementary therapist who specialises in stress reduction and bringing balance back into the lives of her clients, Julie will be explaining how aromatherapy uses the unique qualities of our sense of smell – which, amazingly, is 20,000 times more acute than our sense of taste – to create a powerful healing experience.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon to find out just what aromatherapy is, where it comes from, how the oils are produced and how Julie uses them in the other treatments she offers too.

She’ll also be passing on some helpful hints and tips on the use of essential oils such as lavender and tea tree for health and around the home.

With Fiona sharing some of her own advice on how to stay happy and healthy this summer as well, there’ll be a definite feel-good factor on this week’s Girls Around Town!

Art from the heart

From artist to author, PR guru to IT expert, public speaker to blogger – between the three of them, they count all these skills and more among the strings to their bows!

On the show this weekend, the spotlight is on Tina as she celebrates her latest achievement – a month-long exhibition of her Cosmos Art at Bingham Library.

Running from Friday 1 to Saturday 30 April, the exhibition features a series of 10 artworks inspired by images from space and from learning about our place in this vast universe.

tina's cosmos exhibitionTina will be talking to June about the whole experience, from the first time she put paint to canvas to just what’s involved in mounting an exhibition – a process that’s rather more complicated than merely hanging pictures in a gallery apparently!

As part of the event, she’ll be in the library every Friday afternoon throughout the month to meet and greet visitors. And on Friday 22 April there’ll be a workshop for those who want to join her for a play in the cosmic art box. Advance booking for this is essential as places, priced £10 each, are limited – to find out more, contact Tina via her Facebook page.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon this Sunday – there’ll be news too of another event in Bingham, when Sue Mcfarlane chats to the girls about her free No Hands® Massage session on Saturday 23 April…
