Sign up to the mailing list to be kept informed of the next meeting. 

We meet once a month to enjoy mind-expanding conversations in a safe space with likeminded people. Come to ConsciousCafe to meet others and discuss the topic of the mind body connection and look at how we can create seemingly miraculous healing in our lives.

Upcoming meetings:

Exploring the Journey of Life – June 12th 6.30 – 9.00pm

Venue: The Labyrinth at Kent University. Click here for directions.

We will look at the value of walking as a tool for meditation and reflection. Labyrinths were used in the past as a substitute for pilgrimage.

Victoria Fields and Maggie Smith will act as facilitators for the event. Victoria Fields is a poet and writer who has written about her own experience of pilgrimage walking the Camino in her book “Baggage”. Maggie Smith is a counsellor who was involved with the development of the labyrinth at the University of Kent and undertook a labyrinth facilitator training at Chartres Cathedral.

A free event but donations will be accepted to help the running costs of the organisation. Please let Cora know if you are coming so she can contact you if necessary. If raining bring an umbrella and we will arrange to meet initially in a sheltered area.

 Altered states of Consciousness  – July 3rd  2.30 – 5.00 pm

A discussion and exploration of different states of consciousness and how we might discover them. We will look at the aspects of Shamanism, dreams, visions and other altered states. Visit:  to book your place
