It can be hard to find peace of mind in today's world. Demands and pace of daily life can leave us feeling exhausted and disconnected. Anxiety and other mental health issues are now rife and we can all sometimes benefit from practical tools to help us better navigate our lives. So we value self-care and being kind to your mind. Being kind to our minds can include connecting with others and creating community, learning new skills and ideas, trying fresh – often creative - activities, as well as noticing and being present in each moment. Attention to the present moment can include awareness of our feelings and senses as we experience our surroundings more fully. We also recognise the intimate connection between mind and body and that being kind to our bodies influences our state of mind. So nurturing exercise and movement and healthy eating are key. And, of course nourishing mind and body by inviting rest and relaxation into our lives.

mind and body are intimately connected and should be considered holistically
*SOMA is an acronym for Social Connection, Openness to enjoyment, Meaning & Purpose and Action and Agency – and it's also the Greek word for body. Taken together these concepts represent the key constituents of wellbeing and this training is aimed at training the whole body. The SOMA course is for teens and young people – based on the premise that mind and body are intimately connected and should be considered holistically. For example when we experience stress it doesn’t just happen in our minds but is experienced throughout our being. By encouraging and enabling more positive states we can more regularly experience happiness and positive emotions, like love, and so feel more energised, better focused, with positive impacts for our health and wellness.
