The upcoming listening space will be an opportunity for us to explore the role of creativity in growing more wellbeing and empowering us to move forward in the midst of uncertainty. The times we have been living in have been forcing us to adapt and creatively respond to new challenges, and to take on new perspectives. Come listen and share your stories about how creativity has helped you deal with change and find new ways of moving forward. In this context, creativity does not just pertain to the art and creativity but the natural trait of creativity which is inherent in all of us and threads throughout our lives.
This gathering will offer you an opportunity to practice the art of listening and speaking from the heart. By bearing witness to our personal and collective voices we can find a source of empowerment and support.
This will be an open and welcoming space, so it doesn't matter if you've been to many listening spaces or if this will be your first one - either way you'll be supported to feel right at home.
This listening space will be co-hosted by Kareem from The Heart Movement and Flo from Network of Wellbeing
Please do register ASAP though, as spaces are limited!
A Listening Space is sometimes referred to as ‘Brave Space’. Listening to others' difficulties and joys and/or sharing our own may touch on our vulnerabilities. This can be very supportive and healing, and it can also be challenging. We invite you to share only what feels ok to share - for you and others in the group - and to not to push yourself too far emotionally. If you are holding very heavy issues or trauma we encourage you to make contact with dedicated mental health support. It’s important to know that a Listening Space is not therapy and the facilitators are not acting as therapists in holding the space.
