Wed 22 March 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 GMT
Bounce Back - a day-long workshop on rhythms of resilience
Loss and gain
Joy and sorrow
Praise and blame
Come and go like the wind
To be happy, sit like a great tree
In the midst of them all
We all know that life is full of ups and downs, so how can we be happy even when stuff happens? How do we bounce back?
This workshop offers tried and tested tools that can help us make the most of the good times and be more resourced to deal with the bad times. Over the course of the day, Margot Henderson will share a few simple practices to help calm the mind, relax the body and build our natural resilience.
- Body mind mapping
- 5 a day feel-good factor
- Deep relaxation
- Mindfulness and movement
Margot is an experienced tutor and workshop facilitator with a history of working with the WEA.
A Scots - Irish poet, storyteller and community artist with a background in community education and integrative arts therapy, Margot also practices and teaches mindfulness meditation.
Wear comfortable clothing.
A light lunch will be provided.
Who we are
The Worker’s Educational Association has been providing
high-quality educational opportunities to communities since
1903. Our vision is for a better world: equal, democratic and
just; through adult education the WEA challenges and inspires
individuals, communities and society.
The WEA Women@Work project aims to dismantle the barriers
women face caused by:
- rural isolation
And to give women a voice:
- in the home
- at work
- and in the community, both locally and nationally.
We have seven W@W network areas across the Highlands, each
with a local coordinator who organises events in their area.
The seven network areas are:
- Skye & Lochalsh
- Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey
Our workshops and events are free to attend.
