The Gloucestershire Holistic Networking Group provides an opportunity to meet fellow holistic practitioners and mind-body-spirit professionals, as well as a forum for exchanging news and ideas, learning new business skills, flagging up forthcoming events, sharing best practice and passing on referrals.
Small businesses and solopreneurs also welcome!
Each meeting includes a 30-minute presentation from a local entrepreneur, businessperson or practitioner that aims to share practical techniques you can use in your practice.
Join like-minded practitioners at our next meeting, at The Isbourne Holistic Centre in Cheltenham. Please RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend.
Meetings start at 11am and finish at 1pm, to allow for parents doing the school run in the afternoon. Why not stay for lunch at The Isbourne Café?
There is always plenty of time for informal networking, and an opportunity to flag up any events you are involved with or wish to promote.
Please bring business cards and flyers if you have them! We have a table to display them, and you are encouraged to swap them with whoever you are speaking to.
Entrance is £5, which includes tea/coffee and a slice of delicious home-made gluten-free cake from the Isbourne Café.
Please contact us if you would like to come, so we can get an idea of numbers beforehand.

The networking session includes a 30-minute presentation by a local business person or practitioner. This month's is:
Teaching Skills for Practitioners
with Karen Goodson
This networking session is open to holistic practitioners and small businesses. The presentation, though geared towards holistic practitioners, will be of interest to anyone running classes or workshops.
As a prelude to this autumn's Level 3 Award in Education & Training at The Isbourne, educator Karen Goodson will introduce you to the theory behind the practice of teaching and training and how it can be adapted to the holistic environment.
Karen will also touch on how the mainstream psychological theories around learning correspond to holistic theories such as how we can tap into the wisdom of our ancestors.
Karen has taught in the statutory, voluntary and community sectors for over 30 years. Subjects taught range from personal development, English, maths, community arts and crafts to Chi Kung, spiritual hygiene, careers advice and initial teacher training. Karen is also an approved Safeguarding trainer for Gloucestershire County Council.
She has taught the Award in Education and Training to the Tutors and Experts by Lived Experience of The Severn and Wye Valley Recovery College (Mental Health) as a tutor for Adult Education in Gloucestershire for the past 4 years.
She was nominated by the students and management of the college for the award of outstanding tutor on the basis of the way she adapted the mainstream qualification to meet the needs of those experiencing severe enduring mental illness.
Entry is only £5 which includes tea/coffee and homemade gluten-free (and some dairy- and gluten-free) cake! You can pay in advance online, call in at The Isbourne's reception (2 Wolseley Terrace), or phone 01242 254321. Alternatively, you can just turn up and pay on the day!
