Playing With Words – A Mindful Writing Workshop
22 Sep 2022
A session for all who are interested in creativity, wellbeing, relaxation, playfulness and connection, whether you have a musical background or not.
5 Jul 2021 - 5 Jul 2021
Susanne Olbrich, Joe Holtway, and Martha Wright will bring mindfulness practices and songs, and guide explorations of sounds and silence. We will explore deep listening and authentic, embodied sounding, using the voice in ways that feel comfortable and natural. If you play an instrument, bring it along. We would love you to join us.
