Black? Green? Cyber? Personal!

I lost heart in promoting my “Black Friday” goods after reading that the name had connections with the slave trade. Whether this is true or not I really don’t know but it pulled me up. Other friends of mine were promoting “Green Friday” and getting us to reuse or recycle goods. Well I certainly did my bit on Friday for that when someone came to the Centre with a car full of handbags and donated goods for the Helping Handbags campaign! If you have a spare handbag, you can bring it to the Centre filled with things like sanitary towels, scarves and gloves. Some suggestions are in the photo at the bottom of this newsletter.

I also had an email from Magnetix-wellness Jewellery informing me that they have a sale on Cyber Monday, which is really good – but they’ve not told me how to order, whether there will be a separate section on the website or you just order the goods! My webshop there is if you’d like to visit it on Monday! I shall be if only to satisfy my curiosity!

What I do know is that NYR Organics have a 20% sale on Tuesday. All our gifts are in the sale too so this is perfect for the men in your life as they can get your present in the sale and get it delivered too! They could call the centre and tell me how much they want to spend. Hey I could even gift wrap it for them if I have it delivered here! Here’s the link to my webshop.

This week I shall be out and about a lot. There are plenty of networking events that I normally attend, and as it’s Christmas they all seem to be in the first week of December. This means that the opening hours will change drastically for this week only.


Wednesday 2.00 – 9.00, including the event “An Evening with Jon Sabin” from 7pm. If you’d like to book in a treatment with me, they are available between 2pm and 6pm. There are still tickets for the event at £10 on the door.

Thursday 12 noon – 8.00 with therapies available 12 – 5pm. At 6pm the Ascension Group will be meeting, cost £15. If you are interested in working with angels but don’t know anything about it, come to this group and receive a taster treatment.

Friday 1.00 – 4.00 for therapies. The Angelic Reiki weekend is due to start from 6pm. Cost for this is £299, and you can pay in instalments if you wish.

Saturday and Sunday the Angelic Reiki weekend is scheduled to take place. Should this be cancelled, I will be offering therapies between 10am and 2pm on Saturday. Ring the Centre on 024 7644 0186 to confirm if you want to book in.

These times also apply if you want to bring your filled handbag into the Centre for the Helping Handbags campaign. Contact me for details of what needs to go into the handbags, which will be distributed to local homeless women. I do have some of the stuff at the Centre, I’ve bought them cheaper wholesale, so don’t worry if you can’t put everything in.

Therapies always available with me are Reiki, crystal healing, chakra balancing, angel card readings, and aromatherapy treatments. In addition to the NYR Organic mini-facials, I have the Festive Fabulous Frankincense Facial to offer you! And a bonus for you subscribers – not available to anyone else – the first two to book one of these can have a FREE Age-defying Frankincense mini-kit as a thank you from me. You can book online as usual or call the Centre.

The Christmas Opening is now confirmed as:

Monday 21st 10 – 4

Tuesday 22nd 10 – 4

Wednesday 23rd 10 – 7


Tuesday 29th

Wednesday 30th

Thursday 31st

These last three days will be by prior appointment only. Therapies available will be the ones I usually offer, and if you’d like to see James or Helen, they have indicated they can also come in.

I decided to open these three days to offer people a haven to escape from the pressures of the season. You don’t even need to have a treatment: just come in, chill, have a cuppa, and restore your batteries if you like!

I’ve already sold plenty of gift vouchers. As a special offer for people reading this blog, if you buy two full-price vouchers at £40 each, I will give you one for a half-session at £25! You can treat yourself or give it to a friend, I don’t mind – as long as you use it by the end of March next year.

If you see The Amethyst Centre’s advertisements in the local press, please can you contact the Centre and let me know as I’m tracking whether it is at all useful to pursue paid for advertising in this way.

New therapies?

I’ve had visits from a nutritionist, physiotherapists and crystal healers in the last few weeks who all want to make use of the treatment rooms. I have got a 20-day working week to fill – well, there are 5 opening days and 4 rooms to fill and that makes 20 days! So if any of you know anyone who would like to work from the Centre, please tell them to get in touch!
