Mindfulness provides us with ways to manage our thoughts and our emotions. This is what makes the practice such an excellent way to weather stressful times in our lives.
This course teaches mindfulness meditation techniques which are practiced in traditional seated and walking practices but also which are encouraged for use during a variety of guided creative practices. The combination of both mindfulness and creative expression working together can help to calm the mind and body and offers a means to return to and accept the present moment. It can also be used as a helpful way to manage chronic stress, exam stress and sleeping difficulties. In essence this course provides an opportunity for self-care.
No experience of art making is required as the focus is placed on how you feel as you make the art as opposed to the final product.
We look forward to answering any questions that you might have regarding the content of the course.
Bookings are being taken by Douglas Community School's Adult Education Department.
