When we learn to Replace Judgement with Curiosity, we open our consciousness to discover Renewed Options and Fresh Perspectives, creating a more regulated central nervous system.
Regulating our thoughts and emotions encourages us to practice Responding rather than Reacting at times when we might otherwise experience stress and anxiety.
As we continue to practice with Curiosity, we can Re-build Neural Pathways to assist in reducing the Flight, Fight, Freeze, Fawn reactions which may become heightened over time, particularly after experiencing a challenging or threatening experience.
You can join Mairead and the team in planned community events or request your own private group event at your own venue. If you would like to book an Art of Life Mental Health and Wellbeing Workshop, just drop us an email -firstname.lastname@example.org
We would be thrilled to accommodate your needs.
During your 3.5 hour, Art of Life and Curiosity workshop, you will discover
~ How to sort through a mind brimming with ideas and/or thoughts to settle them into a prioritised order through Focus Therapy and Creative Arts Therapy.
~ Mind, body, spirit and environmental connections through mindfulness.
~ The Art of Life and Curiosity book and reflection cards. Be guided in creating a group immersive Wellness Wheel and explore the idea that we can be drawn to different elements of the wheel as we need them.
