30 Day Blogging Challenge Day 24: Being Spiritual and Inspirational in Southend on Sea

on November 21, 2014

For today’s blog I thought I would tell you about a few of the amazing things that are going on in my home town Southend on Sea! We might have a tendency to complain about where we live, but there is actually lots going on in this town and a great community spirit!

1. YOGA!

There’s plenty of choices for Yoga classes. My class of choice is taught by my friend Chris. His class is every Friday 12pm at The Epicquest centre – it’s for about 2 hours and includes drumming, yoga and tasty home-made soup! (which is always vegan friendly) £10 a class.

We also have Yoga Dharma Southend who have loads of classes and do teacher training too. They also have a cafe with lovely juices and vegan options available.

There’s Therapy Life centre who also have Yoga classes, as well as Tai Chi, Pilates and more.

That’s just a few of the options for Yoga, there is a lot more, especially if you go a little further into Leigh on Sea.

2. Inspiring Women of Southend- formerly Southend Passionate Women, I have been part of this group for the majority of this year and it’s great! One month, we will have a ‘sharing’ session- for instance we had a meeting that was about freedom, someone spoke about her experiences and then we shared our thoughts on the concept of freedom. On another month, we will do something creative, this year we have made scrapbooks, vision boards and hand painted t shirts! Meets once a month on a Thursday evening. FREE!

3. Stella’s Goddess group- my friend Stella recently started running this group every 2nd Monday evening also at Epicquest centre (see link under the Yoga section). She focuses on a different chakra for each session and the session includes movement, sharing, readings and more. Plus she usually brings tasty vegan treats to share! £10 a session.

4. Sacred Spiral Women’s Circle- I can’t not mention my own group can I?? We meet once a month, and there is a different theme each month. We also encourage and empower each other through goal sharing. Some of the themes we’ve had include meditation, elements and divination.

5. Pagan groups!

We have two! Pagan Lion who meet every 3rd Tuesday of the month at the RNA club on East Street. There’s a speaker each month (as well as the famous recycled raffle)! and they also host celebrations for each sabbat and solstice.

and the Southend on Sea moot who meet every 2nd month and also have various speakers, celebrate the wheel of the year, have a regular drum circle and raffle.

I could go on..but special mentions to Street Spirit, Sundown and Southend Animal Aid 🙂
