December’s workshop will be delivered in partnership with Reading Community Learning Centre
Dr. Rashmi Shankar will be leading a workshop on how to deal with anxiety and depression, with a session on mindfulness at the end.
Our modern Western lifestyle presents an array of competing challenges and it can get hard to juggle everything. Add to this mix trauma, times of duress, grief, loss or general low mood, and anxiety and/or depression can set in. We can end up feeling despondent, worrying about the future, or how to just get through the day. Our mental health is key to our happiness and wellbeing. A range of normal human emotions is healthy, and it is beneficial to allow these emotions, positive or negative to flow. However, sometimes we can get trapped in a state of negative emotion, which builds momentum, and it can be hard to shake it off.
Dr. Rashmi will offer tools and practical advice on how to deal with anxiety and depression, in a safe space where women can find support, tell their story or simply listen to others.
As usual, we will have an amazing selection of organic Ayurvedic herbal teas, coffee, cakes, nibbles and savoury snacks, and smiling faces to welcome you!
Hope to see you there if you can make it.
