Lifting your spirits; Enhancing inner strength & wellbeing

Online only

Online Recovery College Courses (18+)

The course, offered in conjunction with Spirit in Mind, aims to provide participants with the opportunity to explore, experience and develop 7 spiritual tools (meditation, visualisation, appreciation, listening, play, creativity, and reflection) to enhance their inner strength and wellbeing, in a safe and relaxed setting by a trained and experienced tutor. You will be able to learn how to access inner resources that can sustain you through difficult and challenging times.

This course, delivered by Pastoral and Spiritual Care’s Nirmala, is not about asking you to force yourself to think positively or suppressing your feelings. It is about providing tools to allow you to choose a way of using your thoughts more positively. It offers practical tools for self- help during times of depression, anxiety and illness to instil feeling of hope and support. It recognises that we have a vast capacity to build resilience on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. The 7 tools you will learn will enable you to support yourself, enhancing your sense of wellbeing and ‘lift your spirits’. It will facilitate processing our thoughts and experiences from a place of stillness and without judgement.
