New workshop: Finding your voice in changing times: mindful poetry and strengthening workshop!
We are privileged to be living in times of great change. Yet on the one hand it can seem that we are taking huge steps forward.; on the other hand huge steps back. For spiritual practitioners the change is even more marked, as terms and concepts like mindfulness enter the mainstream. How do remain empowered in the ‘new realm’, ensuring integrity and purity of practice? Remaining in alignment?
The workshop offers that space to pause, talk and write and integrate these changes. We will practice mindful meditations, and write poetry. We will learn techniques of psychic defence.
We will also address the confusion and debate around terms like ‘cultural appropriation’ (in relation to spirituality), the ‘great shift’ and the ‘great turning’. And what it means to be living under a paradox of loss and great joy! In other words, how can we continue to find our voice and maintain our strength in these changing times and still be of service. The outcomes / aims of the course are increased empowerment, stronger mindfulness practice, increased strength and certainty in relation to your own voice.

You can also meet other local charity representatives at the Information Day, learn about other organisations working in Newham and speak to the local Eye Clinic Liaison Officer (ECLO).
