Open Mic Poetry & Live Music
MONTHLY | Last Saturday each month
5:00pm - 7:00pm
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 Open Mic Poetry Sessions are an opportunity for you to stand and express yourself without the pressure of conformity.
You can choose to read someone else's work, or read your own.
It doesn't have to rhyme, there are no rules for the structure of the poem, just less than 3min to read.... but you can have a few up your sleeve!
"If a tree falls in a forest with no one to hear it, will it still make a sound?"
We have voices to give rise to self-expression but we need an audience to give a sounding board...come along and give your ears or your voice to this wonderful event of courage and kindness
The readings will be followed by a live music or performance, running on a Koha basis with proceeds going to the musician/performer.
Mindfulness for Mental Health Support Group
TAKING A SHORT BREAK
Maximum 10 participants, please get in touch with your interest, we'd love to welcome you along.
ABOUT: The Mindfulness for Mental Health support 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.
