Thanks to the #NationalLottery Community Fund we were able to launch a mindful art club at The Harbour Drug & Alcohol Treatment Service yesterday.
We started with a “check in”, and ten minutes of guided mindfulness meditation. Then we helped ourselves to coffee and tea (included). For the rest of the session we did an easy art project and had a chat. All art materials were provided. Read more:What Happens at The Club?
To see the kind of art work we create have a look at our Facebook page. The idea is to focus on having fun, rather than judging your artistic ability.
Create Your Recovery is for people in recovery from alcohol dependency or other substance misuse, and is offered at the reduced rate of £2.00 per session, thanks to our funding from The National Lottery.
This new class takes place on Fridays, 1.00pm – 2.30pm.
This relaxed interview with Peggy and Emma is 52 minutes long because there is lots of chatting and a few tunes, so when you’ve got time, grab a coffee and some mindful colouring, get comfortable and have a listen.
