Ways to Wellbeing Case Study #1

How the IAG offer enhanced the learning on course for one of our learners

conditions for learning

i'm drawn this morning to remember good old maslow and his heirachy of needs.  it's a theorectical basis within the level 3 forest school leader course.  it's argued that for a learner at forest school to truely be in the moment and start to get the most out of the process their needs to be met.

i'm drawn to maslow today because i'm reflecting upon the last two weeks.  a time in which there was much uncertainty and eventually disappointment.

Knowsley FACE Forward: Starting Over - A Road to New Beginnings

Starting Over - A Road to New Beginnings is a reflection of only the first year of our FACE Forward project.  We need some time to fully reflect on both years given the change of content from generic ACL provision to more specific Group A mental health content.  It is humbling to have worked with so many individuals who have reached out to community and adult education and who tell us that their experience has changed their lives! 

acceptance

with a clearer mind i arrive at making another blog post.  i think the post is about acceptance and how this helps me in my everyday life.  i think it's about acceptance as i'm still writing it and accept that i don't fully know what the post will be about.

something i know i do want to write about is how i've been coping with a sitution at work.  

mechanics of expectation

in the recent post about the celebration event i attended i spoke of myself relative to the musical performance.  since publishing the post i've been thinking about the mechancis of expectation of words i find myself encountering.

in the post i swerve around the word musician.  i swerve it as it conjurs up an expectation - in me at least.  i can;t say for sure where this comes from although i could make an informed guess of historical influence from an early age.

so exploring my expecation of the word musician i find that the range is small - at least i thnk it is.  

its ok to like myself.

i'm in reflective mood today after being at the bluesky celebration event of the centre where i've been a learner.  i took a personal situation into the space on friday, hidden from view.  as  i listened to stories of others on the programme the tears helped me to work through the hidden situation.

As the project draws to a close in St Helens

As the project draws to a close, I’ve been reflecting on our Learn to Grow programme, developments and lessons learned, and also on my own personal journey as a tutor and co-ordinator.

positive visualisation

about a month a go i started a part time position within a project that i've been connectd with for about a year.  in conversation yesterday while reviewing and reflecting upon a recent session i found myself discussing how within my own practice i've been reviewing how i use visualisation to help me in new situations.

it's only recently i've been aware of how i use visualisation, even though i knew i was making mental preparations for things yet to come.
