‘Many would say the Maggie’s Centre is a beautiful place…. but through the workshop Steve added a vibrance and a beauty which is difficult to describe – the people who took part were captured by his energy, they were absorbed, delighted and fascinated by the music within them which he enabled them to discover.’
Lesley Howells, Consultant Clinical Psychologist & Centre Head, Maggie’s Dundee
Creative mindfulness – focus & feel good!
The need for creative social interaction lies deep within us – it’s been there since our ancestors first came together to celebrate new life, the changing seasons and the important events in their lives. Both rhythmic and melodic instruments have played their part as has social singing. Many of us these days live our lives at such a frenetic pace and with so many digital distractions in the virtual world there seems little space in which to be mindful of what’s really going in ourselves in the present moment. Some people rarely interact face to face with anyone anymore, easily leading to feelings of isolation, anxiety, depression, lack of confidence and self-belief. Workplace stress is now increasingly common. As a result, many people feel the need to rediscover meaningful ways in which to be together – this is where Unity Music can help. These are some of the positive results:
help you feel good about yourself
share your creativity with others
learn to ‘be’ in the present moment
remind yourself how to have fun!
