WORKSHOP ONE:
ART THERAPY AND MINDFULNESS – SELF IN RELATIONSHIP TO OTHERS, INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP

11 AM -12.30 pm

Facilitator: Nicky Roland

Cost £30

In this workshop you will have an opportunity to cultivate inner spaciousness in the mist of your daily life. From the place of a mindful pause, we will be exploring the potential of meeting another, followed by a creative visual response. We will focus on present moment experience, deep listening, authentic speaking, and creative expression.

This workshop includes a guided mindfulness meditation, guided art making on the theme ‘self and others’ and group reflection. The practice will help you deepen your experience of mindfulness, internally and in relation to others.

WORKSHOP TWO:
SOCIAL DREAMING AND ART PSYCHOTHERAPY – SELF IN RELATION TO OTHERS, ‘TRANSITIONING BETWEEN THE I AND US’
2.30PM – 4.00PM

Facilitator: Dr Hayley Berman

Cost £30

We will be having a visual conversation, a metaphoric and image -based conversation.

Within the workshop participants will engage with a process called Social Dreaming, where we will share night time dreams, and free associations responding to the theme of ‘Transitioning between the I and Us’

The structure holds the ethos of democratizing learning and teaching. It begins to elaborate methods of coming to know. We return to a time when communities gathered to talk about their dreams, to create together, play together and dream together. It is also an experience of group based visual research.

Participants will have space to make images, journal and reflect before returning to the larger group to think about and create links and threads of what the social unconscious of the group is communicating.
