About The Event
Join Karen Nimmo and Gillian Allan for an afternoon of movement, song, contemplative creative practice and group sharing to support your transition into 2018 and nourish body, heart and soul.
Along with time as a group, the workshop will include a guided movement practice drawing from yoga and feldenkrais and a creative exercise to support you to ground into your hopes for 2018 and acknowledge gains and losses from 2017.
Yoga mats and art materials will be provided. If you would like to bring your own please do. A cosy blanket and some layers might also be useful.
Our creative activity will include creating a collage mandala to symbolise your hopes for 2018. We will go through a process to create these together on the 6th. Meanwhile, you might like to keep your eyes open to appealing images in magazines, cards and postcards and cut these out to bring along. We will bring a selection of magazines to cut up also. There will also be paints, pastels, pens and crayons if creating a spontaneous feels more appealing than cutting and sticking.
This workshop stands alone, and is a taster session for a potential new women's group Gillian and Karen hope to start in 2018.
Karen and Gillian are Gestalt Therapists and share a love for embodied movement practice (Karen is a yoga teacher and Gillian teaches Feldenkrais), creativity and self exploration in community with like minded souls.
