Enlivenment is a psycho-physical workout designed to inspire the tired mind.

About

Drawing on influences including playback theatre and expressive movement, the Enlivenment session aims to transform the rumination or compulsive thinking that is associated with mood disorders. The process has been used successfully for many years with young adult mental health patients.

This workshop is offered to anyone interested in creative therapies from either a professional or personal point of view. A peaceful mind-state is (almost!) guaranteed.
