FACING INTO THE FUTURE
eco-anxiety support talk
Monday 9th August 7pm (BST) with Judith Anderson
How do we process our many reactions to climate change and the biodiversity and environmental crises? What shape do these feelings have? How can we relate to and support each other?
Judith Anderson is Jungian psychotherapist with a long interest in the mental health and emotional implications of climate change. She has been a member of Climate Psychology Alliance since its founding and currently is its Chair.
This is an open talk for anyone who is looking for support in dealing with eco-anxiety. So if you have been struck by eco-grief, anger, distress, feeling of betrayal and anxiety about the future you might find this useful.
After the talk there will be a short Q+A session and space for reflection.
Solastalgia is Kasia's new work, with research and creation taking place this Summer and Autumn in Leeds and London.

OPEN PRO-DANCE CLASS
24th-26th August 9am-10.15am
This class is rooted in Kasia’s choreographic and movement research. With strong influence from artist Deborah Hay Kasia leads sessions in a way which invites dancers to widen their perceptual powers. Through a series of solo and group improvisations this class leads participants towards enriched performance presence and discovering greater availability of movement material.
workshops for babies & carers
In this movement session, children and carers will share a special time together with plenty of opportunities to make new discoveries and grow side by side. Through the use of dance, music, contact, rhymes and improvisation we will support the children's physical development and their creative, explorative mind. Parents and carers will have the chance to be physically active with their little ones, moving along side them and enjoying some fun activities. (Children will be challenged to perform several tasks which will introduce new movements skills to their to physical language whilst developing in confidence and self esteem.) During the session we will share a nurturing experience and there will be plenty of time to explore, pretend, imagine and be free!
