Embodiment, creativity and wellbeing for people who work with people

Aug 25th 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

ALLA is proud to present this session to all our members, in hopes that this may help with any stresses, anxiety or simply create a more peaceful mind.

The wonderful presenter Sarah Williams has provided a bit of information about the session below.

The supportive role of librarians, similar to  teachers, counsellors, carers and anyone who works IN RELATIONSHIP with others, can involve absorbing the emotions and feelings of our colleagues, their anxieties, and insecurities. Over time, without a safe outlet, this can become detrimental to our mental and physical health.   In the world of work we have felt the strain of recent redundancies, fears about  job security and the added isolation of working from home. It’s easy to get stuck in the ‘head space’ of work, but when do we find time to reconnect  with ourselves and our bodies? 

My movement based, participatory workshop invites you to do just that and I’m delighted to have been invited by ALLA to support the wellbeing of you, the members. Join me in our one hour session where  I’ll guide you through a relaxing warm up and a creative task to help you reconnect with yourself.  There will be some moving, talking and writing, though no  previous movement experience is necessary, just a spirit of openness to trying something new.  Please wear something that allows you to move easily, and allow yourself a space in which to move where you won’t be interrupted.  It would be great to have a pen and paper to jot down some reflections.  I’ll ask you to bring one small prop, details to follow soon. 

I’ll be Zooming in from London, UK on Tuesday August 25th at 5pm AEST and I’m really looking forward to meeting and moving with the members of ALLA from across the country.
