The Our Tower Hamlets crowdfunding programme is open again for Autumn 2021 projects. The deadline for the next funding round is the 15th of September. See the tab below for more information on how to get involved. As we emerge from the current crisis, it is hoped that the crowdfunding programme can be a positive springboard for a locally-led revival, where local groups come up with project ideas to benefit their local community. For this funding round, there is a particular focus on encouraging organisations to come forward who are supporting disadvantaged and hard to reach groups in our community and those working with people with disabilities. Along with pledges from the local community, not-for-profit projects run by Charities, Constituted community groups, Community Interest Companies or Private Enterprises (with no share capital) can get up to £10,000 from the council towards their campaign.

Community Group Meditative Sound Therapy
Community Group Meditative Sound Therapy joined Our Tower Hamlets1 week ago

Sound has been used as a calming or healing tool for thousands of years. Himalayan singing bowls (standing bells that "sing") have been used throughout Asia South Asia for thousands of years in call for prayer and meditation and are now being used to promote wellbeing. Sound healing is an alternative complementary sonic medicine designed to facilitate nourishing relaxation or deepen the process of transformation releasing uncooperative beliefs or patterns of behavior. Sound healing can help bring balance the emotions and quieten a busy mind. Most people feel calm and relaxed following a sound healing session. Sound healing can help influence brainwave frequencies, enabling a person to enter an altered state of consciousness, which is similar to a very deep relaxation or mindful meditation.
