Colet House Open Day

March 11

Go Beyond the Noise: Join us for our Open Day!

After last Open Day’s success we have decided to dedicate another day to open our doors to give more people the chance to see who we are and find out what we are all about; it will be an opportunity to meet our teachers, members and practitioners and get to know the place where the magic happens ✨

Join us on the 11th of March from 14:00 for a special afternoon and evening to discover the benefits of our spiritual and wellness practices, whether you are a beginner or experienced, young or old, fit or not so fit. Colet House will be open to all and free of charge – newcomers to our activities will be welcome to join in and try out as many or as few classes and workshops as they would like, discover the story of our unique building, and enjoy a cup of tea while meeting our community and maybe making some new friends. As we move into the evening there will be food, performances and Kirtan.

From 2pm to 6pm there will be 45 minutes trial classes running in the east and top studio that guests can try out for free signing up in the box below. During this time you can also book a one hour slot with our wellness practitioner Steve to discover how to restore balance in your life through awareness, breathing techniques and massages.

During the day a vegan/vegetarian pop-up restaurant will take over the refectory.

Evening Performance

From 7 pm all the guests are invited to join our night performance in the Top Studio.

The performance will be opened by an exhibition of Whirling Dervish turning, an ancient method for experiencing inner stillness that was originally taught to us in 1963 by a Mevlevi Sheikh with the permission of the head of the order. After the performances guests will be invited to “slow turn” which is a simple turning technique that can be learnt in a few minutes and leads to the experience of stillness.

The Dervishes will be followed by our famous Kirtan with Nik Parmar. Kirtan is the core essence of Bhakti Yoga which reveals the path of unconditional love where mystical melodies and mantras manifest into Sacred love songs. Get ready to experience an evening of ‘Ananda’ pure bliss – sing, dance meditate and enjoy! 

While for the taster sessions there is a limited availability, for the evening performance in the top studio you do not need a ticket.
