Project description:

Our proposed activity is aimed at providing a "nurturing space" where members of the community can re-connect, relax, and engage in a variety of selfcare activities such as Mindfulness, Reiki and creative expression, to nurture self-awareness and emotional resilience, promoting good mental health and wellbeing. The funding would support the initial delivery of 8 sessions within the Northfield area of Aberdeen, focused on Mindfulness approaches and Creativity. The sharing of simple relaxation techniques while offering support to explore a variety of creative approaches to promote self-care and emotional wellbeing, will offer individuals a nurturing environment to breathe and take time for themselves.
