Simply put, the Holstead
is a centre of Metaphysical learning and practice. It is the
headquarters of The Healing Association of Southern Africa
[THASA] and the home of the Link-up Kwa Zulu Natal newsletter.
It houses full time Healers, Stress Therapists and other
complementary health therapists. It has a Library and is a Venue
for Healing evenings, Meditation groups and Public speakers.
It is however a lot more than that. The Holstead is an
alchemical melting pot of ideas, a dynamic space for
transformation, a place of spiritual comfort and growth, and a
resource centre for all.
