Two hands holding a ball of clay

A playful and experiential day of embodied contemplative practice.

We will be exploring various ways that clay can be used in practices such as mindful-ness, embodiment and connecting with the heart.

The day will offer resources to; integrate the mind-body connection, nourish the nervous system, support and rejuvenation for care professionals, utilise creativity and play for self-reflection, offer an experiential feel for how it is to work with clay in therapeutic and reflective work, and nourish tired hearts.
