stacked pebbles against a blurred blue and orange sky and the moon low in the skyIan Guthrie has just moved to the village and is offering to set up regular meditation sessions.  He has been practising meditation himself for just over 30 years and teaching the practice on and off for 15 years.

The classes would be free but obviously room hire would need to be covered.
