About this event
In this workshop we will explore what mental health and well-being means to us and what helps us. I will guide some relaxation and breathing/mindfulness practices and we can all skills share tips for increasing our ability to look after ourselves and our communities.
You are welcome to join and participate in whatever way works for you.
Please note this workshop is only for people who identify as a Person of Colour, and we will prioritise trans, non-binary and intersex people.
This workshop is free to attend, but places are capped at 25 participants. Please book early to avoid disappointment, and once booked please arrive a few minutes ahead of the 6pm start time as there will be no late admittance.
This workshop will be a sober space, and it is not advisable to do the practices on a full stomach – please avoid eating just before or during the workshop.
