Do you, or your colleagues suffer from stress?
Do you work in healthcare or support work?
Could your clients benefit from more mindfulness?
Let us bring Mindful Art Club into your workplace, treatment service or social club!
Last week we enjoyed bringing Mindful Art Club to the TLC group at The Brook Inn. In this case TLC stands for Tea, Laughter and Company. Every Thursday afternoon at The Brook, in Plympton St Maurice, the landlord John, and his staff offer a free cup of tea, some biscuits and like-minded company to anyone who lives alone, or feels lonely. There is sometimes a guest speaker, a game of cards, or a sing along.
We offered this friendly crowd of around 25 people, a short mindfulness meditation and an easy art project; drawing zentangle patterns. Many people there had not tried drawing for years, and had never tried meditation.
That was really relaxing – I almost fell asleep!A lady at TLC
There was a lot of chatting and laughter while everyone had a go at doing some artwork. We had so much fun, and were very surprised to receive a round of applause at the end of the session!
Emma and Peggy can bring Mindful Art Club to your treatment service, workplace or residential home. Drop in to one of their existing classes to find out about this new way to manage anxiety and stress.
