Workshop: How to prevent burnout and find your joy & be more creative
We are delighted to invite you to a series of monthly courses. The first course is intended to help you find more time for yourself, learn to deal with stress through Gestalt and mindfulness and assist you in building joy in your personal life and workplace.
This workshop is designed to support the mental health of your team/organization/ teachers.
Busy time, busy life, many expectations, many roles etc.… anxiety, anger, frustration, loss of hope, low mood, depression, relational difficulties, a feeling that you are in the wrong place with the wrong people and your talents are not flourishing? Maybe you are experiencing burnout? and you need support to move, to change, to heal?
If you need support to move from a place that causes you discomfort, we invite you to a workshop. We will help you identify your resources, coping mechanisms and deficits; it may allow you to move towards change, a happier place and a better version of yourself.
If you don’t feel comfortable in a group setting, we offer an individual, tailored setting.
Joy is a state that helps you feel fulfilled. If you’ve experienced traumas, adverse childhood experiences, bullying, parents' separation, addictions – you may have difficulties to feel in general, Joy may be difficult to reach, to get, to feel. Personal development, support and a group setting may offer you an opportunity to regain a sense of Joy.
Your body is your home. The body: stores memories, allows you to feel, think, act, and warns you. It keeps you safe. Are you looking after your body? Are you paying attention to a voice from within? By body awareness, body movement, and dance you can overcome your limitations. If your body is overused and you are not looking after your somatic version of yourself you are putting yourself in danger of mental and somatic disorders.
Each stage of life has a different version of the body, it is still you and it is in your best interest to pay attention to it and take care of it. The body - It is you. You live in the body. At times we may dislike our bodies. Why? ….. Is it a trend? Is it ageing? Please answer yourself and see what type of relationship you have with yourself, and your body. Care versus neglect. A healthy movement tailored to your needs, and stage of your life can change cortisol levels (not only) and promote your health, sense of joy and strength. By gaining a physical strength you are able to have a different stance in the world.
Techniques included in the workshop:
-Mindfulness & Movement
-what is burnout? How can you prevent it?
- what is creativity? And how can you find more joy?
