Catching Breath

Catching Breath

Tuesday 24 May 18:00 - 19:30, 21 Portland Place

Audience: 12+

For Mental Health Awareness Month we are offering a workshop which enables you to stop and take a moment for yourself.

In this workshop, artist Jayne Wilton will explore the notions of containing and visualising the breath in art history, and you will capture the traces of your breath using the Japanese art of suminagashi, a technique that once mastered can be used mindfully and as a meditative process.

You will also work one on one with Jayne to create a unique monoprint of your breath. There will be an optional opportunity to stay for a supportive and renewing restorative yoga session after the art session.

These gentle processes will be an opportunity to reflect on the importance of the breath in helping to take care of our mental health and wellbeing, and so Jayne will also guide you through mindful breathing processes and the expressive qualities of the breath.

This event is linked with the Association’s 90th anniversary and celebrates the Help for the Sick Doctor Scheme launched in 1979. The scheme was the stimulus for the establishment of the National Counselling and Welfare Service for Sick Doctors in 1986.
