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

Balancing act

Three months ago, Claire Clements joined the Girls Around Town with details of the Positively Empowering Kids Festival, a brand new event which took place at Nottingham Racecourse at the end of June.

This weekend she’ll be back in the studio to talk about some of the highlights of the day and remind listeners of the other ways she helps youngsters build their confidence and self-esteem by encouraging them to put on their Positive Pants.

But it’s not just about kids this time, because Louise Hallam of Still Calm will be with her and the main focus of their chat with June will be on the grown ups…

With several strings to her bow, Claire knows all about the importance of balance and she’ll be describing how, using visualisation techniques, meditation and creativity, she can help you, your staff and your business become the best they can.

Techniques that, earlier this week, she shared with members of the Nottinghamshire WiRE networking group here in Newark, giving them an insight into what Blissful Balance means to her and to those who take part in the wellbeing and empowerment activities she organises.

Claire and Louise will have news too of another upcoming event, when they’ll be joining forces with Donna Smith and Amy Huskisson to present Wellbeing in Nottingham at Jury’s Inn on Monday 30 September.

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday to find out what’s in store for this one, how Claire and Louise achieve their own blissful balance and how, with their help, you could achieve yours too!

Medicine for the soul

Do you need a little soul medicine in your life?

Join the Girls Around Town this weekend to learn how, through wellbeing workshops in England, healing retreats in France and self-development home courses, Danushia Kaczmarek can help you say goodbye to chronic illness, fear, worry, grief and more…

She’ll be chatting to June and Rosalyn about her own journey, explaining how suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for eight years eventually led to a heart attack on New Year’s Eve 2013.

“For many years, I thought I was happy but deep inside myself I was sad, angry and felt a failure,” she says. “With these suppressed and hidden feelings, I became ill and overloaded with emotions which eventually led to the CFS.”

The heart attack which followed was, in her words, a total wake up call and the fork in her road through life. Now, in the Soul Medicine workshops and retreats she runs, Danushia helps clients change their own lives for the  better, healing and transforming them from the inside out.

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday to hear her story and find out how a dose of soul medicine could set you on the path to a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life…
