Venue: Mary Potter Centre

422 Durham Street North, St Albans, Christchurch

Many of us are familiar with the adage:

“The only constant there is, is change”.

Despite consciously knowing that change is an inevitable part of life, many of us feel unsettled by our own and others’ changing moods, energy-levels & feelings. Join us in exploring how the yogic teachings on the three gunas, described as the three universal attributes of nature, can support you becoming more accepting of and at peace with change.
