CHI-KONG PRACTISE

I n a m i d d l e o f a q u i e t g r e e n fi e l d , o u r chi-kong session started by focusing our attention to our body and our breath. We woke up our energy by tapping our body p a r t s . A f t e r t h a t w e m o v e d i n a fl o w o f movements like the ocean, sharply like an eagle… We gave our energy and took what we needed. We played with our energy, moving it from one place to another, ever y time ending by settling it gently on the ground.

By the end everyone was calm,

relaxed and grounded.

Kate: ‘’This project and being in nature it made me question why people even decided to star t living in cities!’’

MAKING THE DIARY

One of the tools useful for mental health in order to organise thoughts is to write a diary. And from scratch! First we made the diaries from paper. Then the time for the creative process came up! We decorated the covers using water colors, ink and colorful papers. During the process of making a diary we also experienced a session of art therapy - it was also super relaxing and meditative.

Marija: ‘’ This was my fi rst projec t and I did not exp ec t it to b e like this! All these friendships, all that we have learned and how creative it was – it was really outstanding. People here are ver y op en, they don’t fear the future, they are just free. I feel like myself and I am myself here.’’

GROUP WORK This energizer is a great group activity that combines having fun and taking care of each o t h e r. We p u t c h a i r s to g e t h e r i n a c i rc l e w i t h the seat facing the front of the circle. The number of chairs used in the game is less than the people participating and with each round the number of chairs decreases. When the music stops, with the help of the imagination every p a r t i c i p a n t h a s t o h a v e t h e i r f e e t o ff t h e g r o u n d and that means helping and supporting each o t h e r t o fi t i n t o t h e c h a i r c i r c l e .

The great

thing is that there is no elimination and it is great team work since the goal is to be a part of the circle until the very last round.
