A Wellbeing Centre for the 21st Century is up and running on the high street In Letchworth Garden City (population 48,000) in Hertfordshire, UK. On the opposite side of the road to the Centre, you will see a lovely park. Letchworth is a beautiful garden city.
Nshorna, my daughter, launched The Wise Lotus Centre in Spring 2022 after designing the full conversion of the front and interior of a medium to large ground floor shop into a receptive and caring centre.
Her landlord, the largest landlord in the city, is the Heritage Foundation, a charity serving the Letchworth Community through funding mostly from their rented properties in the area. The Centre is located at the foot of the high street in Letchworth, a five-minute walk from the railway station
Nshorna created a website for the Centre with Wix, based in Israel, who gave guidance over the phone for some features for her website. With initial support from a designer of brochures using software, she developed leaflets and brochures. She has transformed a vision into a reality.
The Centre keeps costs as affordable as possible to support adults and children. Nshorna rents the space out per hour at a modest rate to the person facilitating a group. The person also receives an invitation to offer donation (dana in the East) for the ongoing expenses of running the Centre. The Centre provides the space for the sessions for facilitators committed to service.
Nshorna reached out to those contributing to wellbeing in and around Hertfordshire. Other practitioners in the area contacted her. A network of practitioners has developed in the past seven months offering an expansive range of sessions.
Do join a class and course (see email and website address below) held in The Wise Lotus Centre, 35 minutes on the train north from Kings Cross station in central London, UK. TWLC has an expanding programme.
Nshorna, founder and CEO, teaches mindfulness and other classes/workshops for adults and children in the Centre. Her father, Christopher Titmuss is the senior consultant for the TWLC. The Centre has hosted over 30 types of classes, sessions and trainings in 2022. Most sessions are ongoing every week. There are also talks on specific themes for the public.
