About the Event

What does it mean to be BODY WISE?

Can you connect with your body and listen to the messages of healing it holds for you?

In this workshop, Art Therapist Rakshanda Khan and Registered Nurse Psychotherapist Celia Fung will guide you through movement, mindfulness and body art exercises for self-compassion, gratitude and insight. We will work with all-natural henna in culturally informed ways.

HENNA & MOVEMENT:

In these stressful times, when we are spending so much time indoors with limited physical activity, our bodies may need extra care and attention. Through mindful and joyous movement, we hope to tune into the inherent wisdom our bodies contain to connect, listen, and express what our bodies need for healing. The art of henna has been practised for centuries, embodying ritual, symbolism, community, joy, ceremony, and celebration. Henna application has a calming and cooling effect on the skin, requiring mindfulness and focus to create patterns and symbols that stain the skin, leaving deep toned temporary tattoos that darken and lighten with time.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

You will need a henna cone to participate in this workshop. We suggest purchasing the Henna Kit we designed for you. However, you may join us with your own materials. If so, we recommend all natural henna, as many henna cones contain harmful chemicals that may damage your skin. The henna cones we have included in our kits are mixed with natural Cajeput Oil. Please bear in mind that if you have scent sensitivities, our henna cone will have an earthy scent. If you have sensitive skin, please know that you will be invited to apply henna to your skin, so make sure to spot-test with henna before the workshop. Our henna cones contain no harsh chemicals so they should be safe, but it is best to check for safety.
