Try Tai Chi at Food for Thought

Weekly on a Thursday evening
Starting on Thursday 8th of March – Thursday 26th April

T’ai Chi Chuan (Taiji quan) is an ancient Chinese martial art which is practised
throughout the world. In recent times it has become less known for its martial
prowess and more as a gentle exercise for promoting good physical and
mental health.

Our instructor, Craig Swinnerton, is a Senior Instructor with Zhong Dao, an
Advanced Instructor with the T’ai Chi Union for Great Britain (TCUGB) and an
authorised Instructor with British Council for Chinese Martial Arts (BCCMA).

The course will run for 8 weeks from the 1st March, on Thursdays at 7pm and is
designed to introduce you to the basics of Tai Chi and promote wellbeing.
The course is free of charge for 8 weeks*

(*After 8 weeks the class may continue (depending on demand) on a fee paying basis – or
you may wish to join one of Craig’s classes throughout the area.)

For further details please contact Ade on 07852 766023 or Craig on 07835 150905

Poetry workshops – Finding Your Voice @ Food for Thought
May 31 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Poetry workshops – Finding Your Voice @ Food for Thought | England | United Kingdom

Poetry workshops – Finding Your Voice

What is poetry?
What kinds of poetry are there?
What makes a poem good?
What is a bad poem?
Why write poetry?

What kind of poet are YOU?

You don’t have to be an established writer to enjoy experimenting with writing poetry, even if for the first time.

These Poetry workshops are designed to help you be more creative, understand how poetry can be a great way to express your thoughts and feelings and to help you find your own unique ‘voice’ as a poet.

By the end of the 3 workshops, the aim is for you to have composed some poetry of your own that you are happy with, and to feel inspired to continue writing it.

The facilitator, Ximena Holzer, is a published poet, whose 3 volumes of poetry have been published in Spain and Latin America. She writes about memory, family history and the interplay between the interior life and dark social forces.

She has led poetry workshops in Barcelona and more recently in Mexico, where she was invited to give readings at an International Poetry Festival. She has a great deal of experience in helping people to express themselves creatively using poetry.

The sessions are free and open to anyone who would like to play with poetry.  Please contact Tim at Dudley MIND to register by calling 01384 442938 or email enquiries@dudleymind.org.uk 

Music Workshop Sessions @ Henry Court
May 31 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Music Workshop Sessions @ Henry Court | England | United Kingdom

Music workshops for self-expression

You don’t have to be a musician to have fun improvising with music. These music workshops are designed to promote creativity, self-expression and wellbeing, playing in a relaxed group setting with others. No musical skill or knowledge is necessary. If you do play an instrument (to any level), feel free to bring it along and develop your improvisational skills. If you’re a non-musician, prepare to discover the joys of making music with others in a safe, positive environment.

The facilitator, Tony Gillam, is a musician and mental health nurse. He is also an experienced teacher and group facilitator and his work with Kidderminster’s Music Workshop Project won an international award. Tony is able to offer one-off ‘taster’ sessions or a series of music workshop sessions.

The next session will take place at Henry Court on Thursday the 31st of May 2018 3:30 — 5:00pm.

We run a number of other weekly activities form our wellbeing cafe, Food for Thought. Take a look at what activities we currently have on offer on our Food for Thought Courses & Activities page.

For more information and to arrange a place please call Tim on 01384 442938 or email enquiries@dudleymind.org.uk
