More info about the project:
The training course was a space where participants were guided and invited to be active and authentic, to connect the mind with emotions and body, to take challenges, to explore openness and vulnerability in order to find their inner strength, to develop empathy, to cultivate their inspiring and transforming presence in the community.
Especially in current times the topic of mental health is crucial to be targeted. The main aim of “BeWell” was to help youth workers to grow solid roots of wellness, prevent occupational burnout and its effects in forms of depression or anxiety. Our aim was to show youth workers how to care about themselves, their mental health, how to prioritize their health over other tasks and how to teach it to the youth they work with.
– Vulnerability: connecting with our inner self, beyond daily masks and armors
– Body-mind connection: learning through embodiment of concepts, attitudes, qualities
– Creativity: encouraging body and mind to explore and express the inner beauty waiting to be awakened
– Connection, inclusion and transformation: cultivating empathy and carefulness towards others and environment, becoming a source of positive transformation for the community
Participants were from Italy , Slovenia , Spain , Germany , Czechia , Poland , Latvia , Greece and Slovakia .
