Looking for individual Christmas presents with local links? Caroline Fardell has some suggestions
Christmas might be a little different this year. We may not be able to spend time with the ones we love, and the Christmas shopping

Kasa Rosa Reiki – and The Crystal Path
There must be a rich seam of creative
talent in this part of the world because only a mile or so away from Leaya Slater, there is a 140 acre arable farm in Upper Somerton, near Hartest, where Sarah Worboys and her family have, this year, converted a redundant farm building into a Reiki treatment room. (Reiki is the Japanese therapeutic
technique of
balancing energies
and offers an holistic
approach which can
have a remarkably
positive physical and

your wellbeing).
Sarah, who has been
studying and training
for over 14 years, is now a Reiki Master and can treat and train others. Next year, she will be running a series of courses.
A talented healer, she has also trained in colour therapy and has an Animal Healing Diploma. She is also a creative person and enjoys knitting fun pieces which are on sale in their crystal shop, The Crystal Path, managed by her daughter, Katie – a crystal therapist. Sarah reports that, during the pandemic,
