RECENTLY, a Harlow primary school opened it’s doors to Heartfulness UK, a non-profit organisation and registered charity who look to promote mediation and stress relief techniques for people to deal with their modern day busy lives.
The sessions, which are completely free of charge, promote strategies for stress reduction and Harlow has now become one of many sites across the country for Heartfulness UK who are hoping to make a difference in the town.
Having started in smaller venues since the new year the organisation has found a home at Pemberley Academy on Hodings Road who are giving over their facilities free of charge for the community to benefit from, the first session drew 15 people most of whom were completely new to the concept of stress reduction and meditation.
Lisa Fish, Deputy Headteacher at Pemberley Academy said “The school became aware that Heartfulness were operating in the town through other local links and when it became clear they needed a bigger venue to reach out to more people in Harlow we were only too happy to accommodate, especially with mental health being such an important topic in society and especially in schools”.
The sessions will be operating weekly at the school from 7pm-8pm every Tuesday and everyone is welcome.
