About the Class

“Sixty percent of doctor visits are the result of stress related conditions. Meditation will reduce blood pressure, stimulate immune function, train the mind, and reshape the brain to defuse stress.”  Time magazine August 2004

Miss Hey calls her Meditation style "The Key of Life Meditation ©''.
In our busy world, the ''key'' is quiet time to de-stress, heal, re-group thoughts, find motivation, wisdom, peace and relaxation. All vital for physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being. You can heal, relax, and feel more radiantly beautiful and peaceful through meditations designed by Virginia Hey, celebrity meditation teacher and devotee of health and well-being.

Virginia has formulated a very simple and deeply relaxing balancing meditation. There are no baffling techniques or terminology, just simple relaxation techniques coupled with her soothing words of guidance. Virginia Hey’s meditations are for everyone!

The meditations are guided by Virginia, who speaks softly in a friendly, healing tone as you relax, lying on the floor with your head resting on your bag.

Hi everyone,

As I was saying to Topazowl today, I had allowed 5 months to fill the class but it looks as though it will sell out in a matter of weeks! Hence my contact in earnest to everyone who signed up as interested, I didn't want folk to miss out.

There are only 2 places left out of 20. The response has been wonderful!
Im very excited to hold this class.

Due to the overwhelming response, we are pleased to announce that we have managed to secure a room for another of Virginia's de-stress guided meditation classes.

The extra class will take place on Saturday 10th September between 7am-8.30am so you will be finished in time for the start of any on-stage panels or photo ops.

The Sunday class is now full but please add your name to this thread if you are interested in the Saturday class. (Of course anyone already booked in for Sunday is also welcome to join the Saturday class as well if you fancy a double de-stress!)

Post by: virginiahey on April 25, 2016, 02:04:07 PM
Hi Mike,

No, nothing received, I didn't get any payment notification and I'm always very prompt with responding to payments. I'm very careful and vigilant that way.

Please can you check the spelling of the Paypal account email address you sent money to, mine is Paypal account (I cant post an email address so I have to post it like this) virginia @ virginiahey . com, selecting ''friends/family'' so I dont have to pay the fees. Please check the spelling of ''Hey'', many folk write Hay by mistake.

Thanks Mike, let me know about the spelling. I'll check Paypal as well.

Love
Virginia xx
Title: Re: Virginia Hey Guided Meditation Class
Post by: virginiahey on April 25, 2016, 02:12:02 PM
PS Mike,
Further to my answer above, I just double checked Paypal and nothing came in from you.
The last payment for the class was by Robert Simon on the 20th April.

Please check your Paypal account for the spelling of the payment address you sent to. Since it is more than likely incorrect, you can cancel that payment and try again. Another reason why it may not have gone through will be due to the balance in your Paypal account

Let me know what you discover in your paypal account about this.

Ill try to help from here once you let me know what you see.

Love
Virginia xx

Hi Virginia,
I am unable to make either of the sessions :(!
I've had to buy a new washing machine which has taken all my leftover funds for Gatecon out of play at the moment, unless by some miracle I can save some more I won't be able to do much else..
Sorry!!!!
Will definitely be taking a look on Etsy though in the future!
