Give yourself some space to reconnect with your sense of what matters this Christmas, whatever your beliefs. Whether you relish the frantic preparations or dread the whole rigmarole, this session offers an opportunity to meet Christmas in a calmer and more grounded way.

This event is a special opportunity to take a longer look at a Renaissance altarpiece in a closed-off room. Be guided in ways to appreciate altarpieces and discover the benefits of silent looking and basic mindfulness. There will be an opportunity to reflect on the experience over a mulled wine and mince pies.
