Mindful Music

This is a 8-week course, running from Thursday 29th July to 16th September. Please sign up by 12th July, so we can chat to you about the course beforehand.

What is Mindful Music?

Mindful Music is a short-term therapy which helps people change the way they react to stressful situations, anxiety, and conflicts. Our small group is led by Helen Wallace, a music and imagery therapist, with Thandi Hagos from ACS.

How does it work?

This process uses music-listening and creating images to help us recall positive feelings and moments in our lives. The therapist helps us to focus on these feelings and bring them into the present moment. These feelings are strengthened through creating images as we listen to music. The music is a metaphorical container which ‘holds’ us throughout this process, much as mindfulness meditation holds us within a moment of stillness and the repeated experience of this process instils these feelings within us. We can then call upon this inner strength and positivity when we need it most.

Images can take the form of shapes, blocks of colour, or pictures – no experience of drawing is necessary.

The first course that really turned things around for me was Mindful Music. I now actively look for something that brings me joy every day and it reminded me how much I love drawing and music.
