There is a definite link between our mental health and engaging in pursuits that offer reflective time, creativity and moments of quiet. Many of us don’t find the time for this in our busy lives or simply don’t know where to start.
There is nothing quite like an experienced teacher to help show you the way or simply give you jumping off points to take home and develop in your own time. Jennie will take you through this three hour workshop giving you ideas on mindfulness, what it involves and how it can help us flourish as human beings coupled with creative pursuits that underpin our sense of happiness.
Journalling, writing a diary, memory keeping
However you like to phrase it, keeping a diary can be a useful tool to keep us well. It provides a reflective look back at how far we’ve come, what our hopes and aspirations are as well as providing us with valuable feedback when life can seem overwhelming. Diaries or journals can take many forms, so many in fact that we end up in mental paralysis and give up because we don’t know where to start.
You’ll be shown a number of different journalling styles, techniques and hands on opportunity to begin your memory keeping journey.
3rd March 2018 2pm until 5pm.
