What it is about

The function of our group it to support the practice of our members in any way that they deem beneficial. We provide a forum in which to discuss our practice, seek advice from other practitioners, give advice to other practitioners and to explore various practices from within the TMI framework and beyond. We are non-sectarian and welcome input from members from a wide variety of backgrounds and experience; our diversity is our strength.

What we will do

We are open to all dimensions of practice that our members are willing to explore. If you find something beneficial to your practice, chances are someone else will and we invite you to share it with us. Likewise, if there is something you’d like to explore, chances are someone in the group already has or at least is willing to explore with you.
