The resources offered here are guidelines for teachers, facilitators, youth workers, peer educators, etc. to offer a space for young people to revise, discuss, feel and re-connect to what is going on in their lives.

Use the materials to engage the young and support them to understand how far we live removed from ourselves and to introduce the importance of connecting to the feelings that our bodies are communicating to us, but are many times ignored or discounted.

Let each workshop develop according to what is needed. It is not about teaching or telling the young but coming to a shared understanding about why we many times make choices in our lives that are actually abusive to ourselves and others when we all deep down would prefer a more loving approach to life.

Self Discovery
Workshop

Self-Discovery – The Power to change

This workshop explores that self-love and self-care are two simple daily things that empower us to live self-responsibly and put us into the driver’s seat of our life.
Everybody can be loving or unloving, it is always a choice! However, we are imposed upon by images, ideals and beliefs, which have become our daily normal diet and we have developed behaviours based on those without being aware of it. We learn these attitudes and behaviours through the stereotypes of what society thinks it means to “act like a man” and to “act like a woman” and we can free ourselves from the restrictions of these boxes/prisons once we see them as unattainable and undesirable goals. Then we can start the process of change.
