How to get better at changing your mind

"Clarissa" Regional Online Screening: South East and London
Ideas Alliance CIC and Groundswell are thrilled to invite you to a screening of Clarissa: a film created to improve the health of people affected by homelessness through better understanding of their experiences.
This important film aims to create change through insights within the storyline of the main character, Clarissa. Her story is one of trauma, the importance of trust, and how this impacts someone’s experiences of healthcare. It has been woven together from real experiences of people trying to access the healthcare system while facing homelessness in the UK.
Post-screening discussions will give attendees opportunity to reflect on issues voiced in the film and consider how small changes in practice or policy could create a better healthcare experience for the people they support.

Online - Beyond Survival: Sustainable Wellbeing
As we continue to recover from the pandemic, activities are increasing again. We've been in survival mode, but this is now changing- and it brings new opportunities. However, we may have less energy than expected in this new season. We are still recovering, and our recovery may take time.
Now the pace of change has shifted, we have new choices- will we get on the fast track once again or use this time to consider what will help us manage the challenges of coping with continued demands, as we look to live beyond survival strategies?
Join Sanctuary's Janice Gittens. Katharine Welby- Roberts and Corin Piling in this interactive workshop as we explore the impact of collective trauma and disrupted rhythms to find a way to make life work in this season. We invite you on a reflective journey of wellbeing with God at the centre.
