A new centre for health, healing and wellness has opened in the intimate courtyard setting of Wimborne’s Quarterjack Mews.

Circle Meditation Centre is a community-focused enterprise designed to bring together alternative health practitioners with the people who need them the most.

It’s the vision of social entrepreneur Samantha Bird.

A meditation teacher, life coach and herbalist, she said: “My aim is for us to grow as a community of healers and to support each other to fulfil our mission; which is to bring health and healing to as many people as we possibly can.”

Samantha said the meditation centre provided a warm, welcoming and holistic space in the heart of the town centre, and has two main objectives.

She said: “I’d like Circle to become a living directory of people whose lives are focused on helping others, so no matter who walks in looking for advice, they will be able to find the right person among us to help them on their journey.

“Local people will be able to access a range of healing modalities through Circle, which will act as a hub for anyone in the community who is looking to make a positive change to their own mental, emotional, physical, spiritual health and wellbeing.

“I want to provide a space that allows practitioners to practise and the community to access help, with both parties operating on a ‘pay what you can’ transactional understanding, removing the block of money from the equation.

“This fulfils two functions – it makes help accessible and affordable to everyone, and allows practitioners to build their client base and their reputation.”

Samantha, pictured, provides an array of meditation sessions at the centre each day, including a ‘lunchbreak’ meditation which gives local people the chance to step away from their busy lives for a 15-minute oasis of calm.

The timetable also includes Reiki (an energy healing technique) and meditation for mums with Nina Dixon of Mother Nurture UK and Kundalini yoga workshops led by Leah Morgan of Still We Rise Coaching.
