Hi.

Any details on the content of Rosemary Griffiths’ talk?

Her website seems to promote non-evidence based therapies such as reiki and she is a self-professed “trans medium” (in other words a clairvoyant). I would be quite surprised to see someone using NRAS to promote this work.

Thank you.

Hello

All meetings and guest speakers are booked by local NRAS Volunteers and we trust their judgement as to who would deliver a good talk for the group. As far as I am aware, Rosemary Griffiths does a lot of holistic and well-being therapies as well as meditation that may be of interest or help to members of the group. We are happy for meetings to contain information on complimentary therapies such a reiki, as so many people seem to find this of benefit and does not interfere with any medical treatment. I can understand your concern over the 'trans medium' claim, however i highly doubt this will be discussed at the meeting.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

Kim, do you know if there's a problem with the Gwent/Caerphilly meetings as I haven't seen one mentioned here for some time?

Hi there

It is still running. They held a meeting on 12th January, however it missed the weekly posting on here as I found out about it a little later than usual. You can always check our website as that has the most up to date information: nras.org.uk/groups/gwent-nr... or if you email me at groups@nras.org.uk I can add you to the email mailing list and you will get notified directly of upcoming meetings.

Best wishes

Kim
