Our primary creative resource is our own body-mind. We need to connect to this on a daily basis in a way that is healthy, nurturing and supportive, particularly during times of stress and tension, when support and resources may not always seem readily available. This workshop will explore self-awareness and awareness of our environment as a model for self-care. We will use mindfulness-based practices to bring awareness to how we move through – and are moved by – life, and to how we can resource all that presents itself as potential material for creative change, within ourselves and through the work that we do. Practices will include seated and walking meditation, dyad work and group exercises.
