NEEDED: groups in Dorset who are already meeting and could add Mind Chi as an extra hour per week; groups of ladies in companies, who would meet an hour before or after work or during lunch and who are STRESSED!
Anyone…. anyone? Please email [email protected]

This is YOUR Mind Chi-Chat
So please let us know what you would like more (or less) of and we will happily respond in the next quarters edition!
