Mind, Body & Spirit Wellness Day

Day Event

This is a gentle day, a gift to your self of care. A day of curiosity, reflection and rest.

When we think of wellness we are reminded of its many different components, among them, the physical, psychological and spiritual.

Sometimes these three elements of wellness can be seen as separate entities, cut off from one another.  They are in fact interconnected and work in harmony, when we allow them, leading to greater wellness.

On this day, we will draw together, the Somatic (Body), Psychological (Mental and Emotional),) and Spiritual.

This will be a practical, taster day, of awareness-building and self care, where we befriend, sooth and nurture our nervous system through the body and integrate this into our understanding of our selves as spiritual beings.

  • We begin the day with a simplified map of how the thinking and feeling brain develops.
  • We will take a look at the impact of this on our nervous system and on how we grow and develop as humans.
  • We will explore how we position ourselves in relation to the world and others through the core beliefs we hold about ourselves.
  • We will apply some practical tools and exercises throughout the day, including mindfulness and self-compassion.
  • These exercises will help us to notice distress in our minds and bodies, help us to regulate this and re-enforce positive core beliefs.
  • We will explore how we can weave this awareness into our own spiritual lives, creating a spiritual wellness map.
