Writing for Wellbeing Course
Where: Coniston Community Centre, The Parade, Coniston Road, Patchway, BS34 5LP
When: Starts Monday 16th September | 1pm-3pm | 4 Weeks
This free 4-week introduction course combines Writing, Mindfulness, and Compassion. It will include simple exercises and meditation practices which will help you tap into your creative side.
This course will allow you to get to know the group and provide a safe place for you to explore and share ideas and themes on your journey.
Each week there will be examples of poems and literature, and you will be gently guided to write according to a Theme. There will be simple homework that will help enhance your experience of the course. i.e. writing a short piece or poem after a walk in Nature.
This session is run by Southern Brooks Community Partnerships on behalf of South Gloucestershire Council.
You might not feel ready to join our ‘5 ways to wellbeing workshops’. We can still help. We are working with a specialist health coach from Oasis-Talk who can help you feel ready to become involved.
You may want to continue your wellbeing journey through volunteering. There is a range of opportunities across Southern Brooks provisions. Volunteering roles can be at a level you are confident with fulfilling, for example, you can help a wellbeing worker with running a workshop or support an individual to get to a peer support group. As a volunteer, you will be offered training to help you in the role you choose to undertake.
