Let's talk about fear and anxiety. Both can dictate our emotions and our behaviors. Fear and anxiety are attempts to get our attention so that we can deal with the issues, heal, grow, and move forward in life. The longer we avoid their nudging, the louder and messier they can become. Learning about fear and anxiety, and why we respond the way we do, can help us put into context what we may be experiencing with COVID-19 or what we have experienced in the past. Creative practices like art or writing can help to shift our mind, reduce stress, and promote relaxation.
Each class will provide time for discussion and strategies for coping. Then it's time for some creative fun with art or writing! Gentle and easy prompts and directives will be provided to help nudge you along. Group discussion will wrap up the class - students may choose to participate at whatever level they are comfortable with.
A list of suggested supplies will be provided upon confirmation.
