It’s now one year since the first coronavirus lockdown. This Facebook Live was our first attempt at offering our creative mental health sessions online. We hadn’t yet learned to use Zoom! Since then we have continued to support mental health and combat social isolation with socially distant groups, outdoor retreats and online sessions. There is a rich archive of 45 videos on our Facebook page if you want to try mindful art at home, for free, at any time. We offer creativity and company to anyone struggling in the Plymouth area, in Devon, in these difficult times.
In this video Peggy reads out live comments from people reacting to their very first day in UK lockdown, and viewers share different experiences of their first socially distanced Mothers Day.
A Facebook Group is a place for chatting and and sharing ideas. In our new group we can express our thoughts and feelings, discuss issues, post photos, and share related articles or inspiring quotes. We want to keep the topics similar to our ‘real life’ art groups, so please remember our themes of mindfulness, art, mutual support and social connection.
No problem. Catch up with the video replay, and join in by commenting in real time. Enjoy a short mindful meditation and an easy art project. Grab a coffee or tea, and try some creativity with Emma and Peggy.
We are running Mindful Art Club as an online live Facebook event, twice a week on Mondays at 10am and Wednesdays at 10am, while the UK is in lockdown due to the Corona Virus. There is also a private group on Fridays for people in recovery from addiction.
