Writers group

Dear writers,


Health Minds Cooperative is reviving its writing group! That's where we get together for an afternoon and free write, learn about poetry and prose by reading and discussing examples from fine writers from around the globe, tackle writing exercise, and share our work. I am happy to be the returning facilitator of the group, and welcome new and returning writers to join me on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 2-4 pm in the Healthy Minds Boardroom, at 45 Alderney Drive, Suite 200.


Just to spark things up, we're tweaking the group a little. The second Tuesday of the month will be devoted to poetry and the fourth Tuesday to prose. Between now and the end of June when the group will end for the summer, I hope to invite a couple guest speakers, and to encourage writers to submit the writing they're proud of to the HMC newsletter. Please contact HMC if you have any questions about the writing group. Hope to see you there! Bring paper or a notebook and pen 

(there will be some on hand for those who can't) and come ready to think, feel, and create!


Happy Writing!

Canadian Mental Health Week, May 6-12

mental health week image.jpg

Mental health is a state of well-being, and we all have it. We might have a mental illness, and we might not. Either way, we can all feel well. We can all have good mental health. It is about having a sense of purpose, strong relationships, feeling connected to our communities, knowing who we are, coping with stress and enjoying life. And it’s never too early or too late to get there. But it’s not just about what you do for yourself, by yourself—everyone needs healthy and supportive places to work, live and learn.

Women's Wellness: ADDICTION - Coping & Self-Care

It is impossible to understand addiction without asking what relief the addict finds, or hopes to find, in the drug or the addictive behaviour.
— Dr. Gabor Mate

Women’s Wellness Workshops

Join us every Thursday in May and June between 1-3:00 p.m. to discuss a different mental health topic.

We offer participants a safe, non-judgmental and relaxed space to learn about why wellness matters. Although issues related to mental health and wellness are interrelated and overlap, we will focus on one specific topic per workshop. Participants are never asked to disclose personal information at workshops, and your attendance and participation is always confidential.

Workshops are Scent-Free. Please respect fellow participants and staff by refraining from wearing scented body products (such as perfume, body sprays and lotions).

RSVP

Space is limited! Although we do offer a formal registration, please send us a quick rsvp to let us know if you plan on attending so can make enough tea and coffee (always free for participants). If our event is over capacity, participants who have rsvp’d will be given priority over those who don’t. Call or email Lesley, Wellness Coordinator: wellness@healthyminds.ca 902-404-3504.

Dear writers,


Health Minds Cooperative is reviving its writing group! That's where we get together for an afternoon and free write, learn about poetry and prose by reading and discussing examples from fine writers from around the globe, tackle writing exercise, and share our work. I am happy to be the returning facilitator of the group, and welcome new and returning writers to join me on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 2-4 pm in the Healthy Minds Boardroom, at 45 Alderney Drive, Suite 200.


Just to spark things up, we're tweaking the group a little. The second Tuesday of the month will be devoted to poetry and the fourth Tuesday to prose. Between now and the end of June when the group will end for the summer, I hope to invite a couple guest speakers, and to encourage writers to submit the writing they're proud of to the HMC newsletter. Please contact HMC if you have any questions about the writing group. Hope to see you there! Bring paper or a notebook and pen 

(there will be some on hand for those who can't) and come ready to think, feel, and create!


Happy Writing!

Meaningful Conversation

Meaningful Conversations

Over the years, one of the things I have found that has helped me maintain my health was having meaningful conversations with people. And, meaningful conversation is all about connecting with another human being on a very deep level. I sometimes refer to it as finding your Tribe – the coming together of individuals who are willing to unmask, share, explore and heal in the company of others who are on a similar journey. Having said that, this is an invitation for like-minded humans, who are interested in cultivating wellness - personal and spiritual growth - to come together and engage in those deeper level conversations. At each meeting we will be exploring varies topics on the most recent findings related to mind, body and spirit, with the intention of aiding us on our personal life journey.
