In the My Body is My Home art well-being workshop, we get to know our body, strengthen our body connection, learn to hear its messages and appreciate it as the home where we live our lives. We explore thoughts, feelings and interactions through different art forms, like movement, drawing, writing etc. Art exercises can increase self-awareness, resources, and new perspectives on the body and bodily experience. The work focuses on doing on your own and in a group. We operate without criticism and interpretation. Self-listening plays the key role in this workshop. Come as you are. No previous experience or expertise in art work is required. An interest in self-examination and increasing well-being is enough. Sign up via email to email@example.com at the latest on 2.11.2021.
