For the next school term I will give two new courses that I’m very excited about!
18 October, Tuesday evening starts the Mindfulness Crochet for Calmness course.
Crochet is a great activity that settles your mind and is relaxing too. Crochet and the repetitive movements help the brain make more serotonin, which helps to decrease feelings of depression.
We will learn how to crochet and how to practice mindfulness, we will work on making a crochet mandala.
This is a special project for me, as we will make the mandala that is designed by Dutch crocheter Marinke who passed away because of her depression. I made the mandala (in the profile picture) last year for a project in the USA to raise awareness for depression.
This is a 4 week course and I hope to repeat it every term to enable you to work on more crochet projects.
On Tuesday evening at the Tawa Community Centre, $95, starts 18 October and includes materials and take home crochethook.
And after that fun, relaxing and creative course I will run the Mindful Eating course!
Starting 15 November on the Tuesday evenings. Learn to change your relationship with food into a happy one!
Use Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training (MBEAT) to regain the joy in eating, while empowering yourself to eat more of the good, and less of the bad!
This is a 4 week course, $95, looking forward to see you here!

Did you know your brain is wired to focus on negative things and to quickly forget about positive things? Because that’s what helping for survival!
However that makes us easily forget all the good things we do.
If you want to feel more postive about yourself, you need to train your brain to focus on the things that are good about you. This might feel a bit uneasy at first, but you will get good at it, really quickly!
So this week, every day, take a moment to pause and think about what was good about you so far today. And when you think about it, also bring back all the sensations about it. The sounds, the smells, what did you see, how did it feel. That is important to really make the change.
Have a great week!
ps I hope the people that planned to plant persil all around the Wellington Station, feel really good about themselves. Because I love it! Did you know??
