Stress and its Opposite
Learn to mindfully engage in an art making process of your choice, to be fully present in the here and now, while exploring your emotions.
ABOUT THIS EVENT
When we experience high levels of stress, it can become difficult for the mind and the body to work together and consequently be present and aware of the here and now. It becomes even more difficult to find balance when we are not able to recognise our stress, and the causes of it, as we tend to run away from our physical and emotional sensations, not giving ourselves the time to listen to what our body has to say. Therefore, becoming aware of the present moment is key to recognising and managing our emotions and helping us find a sense balance once again.
During this workshop, you will learn how to mindfully engage in an art making process of your choice, including painting, drawing, collage making, etc. to be fully present in the here and now, while exploring your emotions in a non-judgmental way. Blending mindfulness techniques, visualisation and creativity, you will be able to recognise what stress means to you, identify the sources of your stress, while also accessing your inner resources and strengthening your resilience to cope with it.
