An Oasis of Calm – Dragon Cafe opens her doors to a month of creatively exploring anxiety…

An Oasis of Calm springs to life this Monday…

In June Dragon Cafe will be partnering with the Mental Health Foundation’s Anxiety Arts Festival London 2014, and creating a place of calm contemplation away from the often anxious world we live in. 

Random Acts of Mindfulness between 1 – 4 pm and SoundWorks at 4.30 pm – which will introduce us to singing bowls – are just two of the many activities throughout the day.

Regular groups will continue and we shall also engage with the festival’s theme in the first part of our Anxiety Dialogues at 6.30 pm. Take your mind and body to a place of peace.
