Further details

This event is facilitated by Light Of Mind Practitioners, Mary and Jess. Together they interweave their collective experience in dietetics, psychological therapies and soul perspectives, to shine a light on the connection between mind, body and soul. This interactive event will empower and inspire delegates to connect to their own creativity and deepen their relationship with their individual health and wellbeing.

The aim is to help delegates to have a transformative experience that will influence their professional and personal lives.

Mary and Jess understand that health and social care staff cannot pour from an empty cup and that burn out, compassion fatigue and exhaustion interrupt a helper’s wellbeing and ability to make positive impact. The flourishing health and wellbeing of the individuals in a health and wellbeing team, is crucial to the outcomes and effectiveness of the work they show up to do day after day.

When health care staff feel connected to:

  • Their internal sense of embodied safety
  • Their soul purpose
  • Their unique gifts and authenticity
  • An endless source of inspiring ideas and creative solutions

They show up to work with; resilience, an ability to innovate and create, resourcefulness, compassion and a sense of meaningful contributing which translates to intrinsic motivation.

Thank you for an amazing 2 days where training was not based on a manual or "how to" - but self discovery.

Breakdown of the event

Day one:

The event is jam packed with exercises to explore, understand and experience what is truly meant by

  • holistic
  • creative
  • embodied practice.

Staff learn through play, relaxation and meditation using their own bodies and imaginations as their materials.

The day is punctuated with several 'reflection points' to allow staff to process the learning and connect with their individual and group insights.

  • The final exercise of the day invites delegates into a game. The aim of the game? To uncover the real reason clients don’t CHANGE and how we can help them to shift to a place where CHANGE and transformation are realised.

Day two:

Staff are invited in to 2 deep dive workshops.

  • AM: Nervous system and threat responses.
    Delegates will leave feeling clearer on the ways the body communicates its needs through sensation and ways that clinicians can help patients to tolerate distress and utilise resources, to move closer to embodied safety and connection.
  • PM: Connecting to the self and others through creativity and play.
    Delegates will leave with a clear framework for thinking about, pointing to and working with the client’s healthy identity of recovery as well as making sense of the stuck and scared parts of identity that brought them into services.

The event closes with an exercise that allows the whole team to celebrate the strengths of the individuals that create the team and a chance to reflect on how the collective learning and insights will inform practice moving forwards.

Mary and Jess were so amazing they made the atmosphere warm which made me feel vulnerable to open up to my colleagues and get to know others. I left the training feeling connected with others and encouraged in my job role to improve in so many ways. best 2 days training. Thank you.
