We would like to thank everyone who attended our fantastic Christmas evening at the Haven. Over 60 visitors helped us raised 150.00 towards our next donation to Thurrock MIND, and the wonderful Christina Green provided the most amazing evening of clairvoyance for us all to enjoy. We would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas, and a peaceful and blessed New Year
We were lucky enough recently to be visited by the team from "Your Thurrock" website. They made a short film. in two parts, about the Haven, and our work. Our medium that week was the irrepressible Poppy, and we feel that it gives a good idea of a typical evening with us. If you are thinking about coming along, why not have a sneak preview ?
Open Arms Spiritual Haven in Grays have again raised a significant amount of money for local mental health charity, Thurrock MIND, through the success of their “Pampering and Predictions Day” on Saturday 4th October.
Open Arms, a modern spiritualist centre offering mediumship and holistic therapies, adopted Thurrock MIND as their sponsored charity in August, when they donated 400.00 towards seating needed by the charity’s drop in centre which was raised from the Haven’s regular Sunday evening events.
The Pampering and Predictions day attracted over 70 visitors, who enjoyed private readings by top local mediums, drawings by a psychic artist, tarot and angel card readings, Reiki and Hopi ear candling, Indian head massage, foot detox, aromatherapy, hand and foot treatments, and also browsed a range of stalls offering crystals, candles and gifts, silver Reiki jewellery and some stunning flower arrangements.
Many visitors stayed for lunch, and new friendships were forged over the refreshments on offer from the hardworking kitchen team.
Haven organiser, Jay Gage, said “We were delighted with the turnout, as this was the first event of this kind the Haven has organised. We will most definitely be running more, bigger, and better, throughout next year, as the feedback from our visitors was so fantastic. Everyone worked so hard to get the event up and running – our team are amazing – and everyone who participated really entered into the spirit of the day, making the atmosphere so lovely no-one wanted to leave!”
Please find below links to recent press coverage for the Haven ! We would like to thank our friends at the Echo, the Gazette, Spirit News and Essex Spirit Guide for their continued support !
We would like to thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who is new (or not so new) to the movement and has questions regarding spiritualism, healing and the like. The book is well written, in an accessible and easy to understand manner, and in our opinion is a "must" for anyone looking to delve a little deeper into the world of spirit.
The book was written by friends of the Haven David and Carole McEntee-Taylor, and we have a small stock avaiable for our visitors to purchase. The usual RRP for the book is 9.99, but we are able to offer a discount to 8.00 - 2.00 of which is retained by the Haven for our charity donation.
Copies are available at the centre, or drop Jay an e-mail and we can post one to you for a small additional charge !
