​2021 Autumn and Winter - Friday to Monday weekend courses:
17th - 20th September 2021
19th - 22nd November 2021

The weekend includes a warm welcome, group tuition, en suite accommodation, full board with delicious vegetarian food along with afternoon tea and cake all for £495! You may also join the 15 minute Quiet Time twice each day and the Quaker Meeting on Sunday (optional).

There are ten group sessions of tuition, each over an hour in length that explore AT principles and how to apply them to improve your daily life. The first one is on Friday evening after dinner and the last is before lunch on Monday. There is a break on Saturday between 2 - 4pm

The course is for beginners and anyone wishing to refresh their AT skills. It is a gentle introduction to the principles of the AT in the comfortable, calm surroundings of a Quaker retreat centre. Food is vegetarian and special diets can be catered for (please let Claridge House know your requrements beforehand).

Raise your awareness and retrain your brain! You will learn strategies and methods to apply for yourself and to take away for use in your daily life.

Covid-19 measures are in place and social distancing will be observed as appropriate.
Short private lessons may be available, if the current guidelines permit (pay on the day).
