During the first half of 2020 during the first outbreak of COVID 19, I started running free mini workshops on Zoom from 4pm-6pm BST every Wednesday.
With lock-down happening, people found this a safe and nourishing place to come online to talk about their feelings and connect with others, build psychological resources to support their resilience. Over time we have build a strong community of people and this gives a warm feeling to the group that is welcoming and nourishing to new people.
The structure is to have a quick-check in in pairs in breakout rooms, then a short overview of a topic followed by a body-mind meditation. Then we go into breakout rooms in groups of about 4 people to discuss the insights we received from the guided meditation. Finally we share the insights into the plenary session. All within a couple of hours. This is a great way to receive a psychological every week and is also to get to know me and my work.
I don’t post every event on the website, but I do a weekly mailing with next weeks topic. To receive these emails, just give me your email address to receive details of the next events.
