Lambeth Carers Body in Mind Training: Blue sky above
Lambeth carers with the support of Sarah Bennett at Carers Hub took part in the 5 week BMT course at Mosaic Clubhouse. We explored the themes of mindfulness and their relevance to carers’ lives. Just giving permission to look after themselves was a major theme and many of the carers immediately engaged with this. Noticing that it might feel uncomfortable or difficult to do something different and put yourself first was also a theme but many of them were really courageous and went for it!
A number of the sessions were held in Brockwell park where the group had a chance to reconnect with nature and the beauty of the walled garden and a chance for an ice cream at the café – real acts of self care that nurtured them and provided a chance to “fill up the tank” rather than letting it empty. http://lambethcollaborative.org.uk/recoverystories/the-blue-sky-is-still-above
