Poetry Flow n' Music
MONTHLY | Saturday Night
5:00pm - 7:00pm
DATES TBC please check timetable page
You don't need to be a 'poet' to write some words that express something or have meaning.
Slam and Beat Poetry styles arose from the need to express an idea, offer a debate, provoke some thought, express some feelings, change a paradigm, lighten the mood, challenge the 'norm'...!
The Poetry Flow Sessions are an opportunity for you to stand and express yourself without the pressure of conformity.
Come to listen, hear or share!

Bring a story, or a poem or 3 - if you like, you can also bring a print out of your readings so we can take a copy (via photo or photocopier) home with us for continued enjoyment

Mindfulness for Mental Health Practice Group
RECOMMENCING IN FEBRUARY
Sessions run on koha (donation) basis
Maximum 10 participants, please get in touch with your interest, we'd love to welcome you along.
ABOUT: The Mindfulness for Mental Health practice group is a confidential, compassionate and accepting space to practice and learn mindfulness techniques for mental health.
OUR INTENTION: is to bring awareness and support to all of us who face mental health challenges and to provide a safe and supportive environment to come and connect and share with others; the level of participation is completely up to the individual - it is acceptable and valuable to sit in with the group without verbal contribution. We aim to provide essential mindfulness skills for self-regulation, constructive self-reflection and disentanglement from mental-emotional challenges.
HOW MINDFULNESS WORKS: mindfulness strategies strengthen our awareness of and detachment from our experiences and our learned, habitual responses to those experiences. We learn that we have a choice and with this choice we can retrain our thought patterns, reduce stress and detach from painful and limiting behaviours and beliefs. Mindful living values encourage us to find our individual and collective life meaning and redirect our attention towards choices that support this.
