This short course explores a holistic range of artistic and science-based techniques and knowledge to improve and develop resilience. It is a set of mind and body-based skills and attitudes that can provide a lifelong framework to prevent and address anxiety, insomnia, stress and depressive crises in life, work and relationships. This will include gentle movement, deep relaxation, mindful approaches, music, writing or drawing. In a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment, we will share experiences and strategies within this area to help us better self-manage life’s challenges.

Come along and join us.
