Want to learn to practice relaxation exercises, and art for self-care?
We are looking forward to working with Devon Recovery Learning Community in 2021 to deliver a new six week course, on Zoom.
This recovery college is provided by Devon Partnership NHS Trust to support mental health and wellbeing. Their students are people with experience of mental health difficulties, their family and friends, and the professionals who support them.
Each session of our new course includes five minutes of guided mindfulness, five minutes of mindful drawing, a simple art project, and the opportunity to chat and relax.
‘Doodle Your Recovery’ gives people the opportunity to share their feelings, practice mindfulness, create art, relax and chat. This course:
- Improves mental health
- Improves social connection
- Teaches new skills (relaxation exercises and art for self- care)
We start with a ‘check in’ to see how everyone is feeling. There is no obligation to speak if you don’t want to. This is followed by some guided mindfulness, then a simple art project e.g. drawing Zentangles or paisley, or making a greetings card.
We end the group with a ‘check out’ to share how everyone is feeling after practicing mindfulness and making art.
This 6 week, online course starts on Thursday 14th January, then 21st and 28th January and 4th and 11th February.
Places are limited. Book early to avoid disappointment: Doodle Your Recovery Online.
