Mindfulness in the park, led by Huw Griffiths in Sydney Gardens Bath

Posted on behalf of Sydney Gardens Project

Join Huw Griffiths from Mindfulness Bath to take time to wander in the green space of Sydney Gardens. 


Mindfulness is paying attention, in the present moment, and without judgment. It is a way of bringing us back in touch with ourselves so that we can relate directly to whatever is happening in our lives right now with acceptance, curiosity, and non judgment.


Practical and simple to learn, easy to use and yet the benefits are immense. Mindfulness helps us to see more clearly our habitual reactions to pressure and stressful events and in each moment we discover ways of responding that are more accepting, kinder to ourselves and less damaging to our health and happiness.


Mindfulness Walks are taking place in Sydney Gardens in a series of 4 week blocks this summer. 


Come along to one to try it out, or sign up for all four weeks at a time.


The sessions will start with an introduction to Mindfulness with Huw and then practice and reflection in the Gardens


Age: 14yr+ Any under 18s must be accompanied by and responsible to an adult.


Meeting point confirmed on booking


Accessibility:
You will be able to choose where you go in the park, so if needed you can keep to level surfaces

Exploring Conflict Through Art

Posted on behalf of University of Bath

With Dr Oliver Walton, Mrs Hannah West and Dr Zainab Mai-Bornu, Department of Social and Policy Sciences, University of Bath.


This panel brings together a diverse group of scholars who have all employed a range of  creative methods - illustration, music and poetry to photography and participatory film - to explore conflict and conflict-affected societies. The event will showcase research on diverse themes including borderlands and post-war transitions in Nepal and Sri Lanka, gender and  the military, resource conflict in the Niger delta, and artisanal mining in West Africa.
 
We will explore what creative methodologies reveal that we might not have otherwise seen and how it enables us to engage with different audiences as well as the practicalities of collaborating with creative practitioners. Each panellist will talk about their research, why they were drawn to these methodologies and what challenges they have encountered in adopting this practice.
