From Stressed to Calm in One Day
Friday 15 June 2018: 09.30 - 17.00

Life can be busy, difficult and harsh at times. We can become stressed and our bodies, minds and relationships will then suffer. This day is an antidote to this; it will show you how to stop this from happening to you.

This is an opportunity for self-renewal and increased self-awareness, so you see the value to you of whatever enters your life. It is a day when you start to learn how to release the grip stress has on you.
This day is for you, if you wish to:


Learn easy, quick techniques to counter stress when it appears and to prevent it from having such a tight grip on you.


Spend a day in a positive, secure, friendly, supportive environment in which discussion and openness can be encouraged.


Know more about why you become stressed and why your brain is so biased towards being negative.


Understand how stress disrupts your sleep and learn techniques to relax.


Discover whether meditation is for you or how better to stick at a meditation practice.


 Included in the price is:


Tuition in many practical, successful techniques to counter the effects of stress in your life, including mindfulness and meditation.


Full notes will be given after the day.


A group one-hour weekly accountability session for four weeks.


A one-to-one Skype call with me within a month of the course arranged at a time to suit.


Lunch, cold and hot drinks throughout the day.

About the band

CrossFire is a band existing for a few years now and it comprises very passionate musicians who joined together in a mission of playing covers of songs, but in a new and unique way which celebrates tradition as well as classic at the same time. The basis of the band is represented by Wojtek Springer (vocal & bass) and Robert „Robson” Wojciechowski (vocal & guitar). Robert appeared in worldwide-known TV shows, that is in Poland’s Got Talent (Mam Talent) with Gospel Joy. CrossFire, at first being only a band for financial reasons, with time turned into a group of true friends, playing their music with real joy and taking lots of pleasure in doing it. In their repertoire you will find not only the absolute classics from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, but the most recent hit songs as well. The full engagement of the band members and their immense energy are strongly noticeable throughout their songs and concerts. The musicians from CrossFire, despite having played numerous concerts and having recorded lots of compositions, are still being inspired and willing to continue their work in the future”
