Classes are offered to people with experience of mental health difficulties, their family and friends, and the professionals who support them.
Have you ever wondered what was the point of feeling sad, worried, angry or anxious? Have you been told that anger should be kept quiet, or felt that grief was stopping you from living fully?
When repressed, emotions turn into weapons against ourselves and can drive us into a trapped state of mental distress.
In this course we will discover the meaning and purpose of all those emotions that we sometimes feel get in the way of a happy life, learn how to express them safely and positively, and understand their messages and gifts so as to learn to turn them into invaluable assets for inner strength and true happiness.
In an atmosphere of gentle holding, through sharing, games, stories, guided meditation and self-reflection, we will look at the usually taboo world of emotions, discover ways of expressing them in a positive way and find the gems that we never suspected they held – a deep and beautiful journey to fully recover all of that we are.
