Mindful Art Cafe in Your Parish!

An article from the US National Library of Medicine notes that community-based art-making, in particular, can enhance mental well-being.
“Art therapy uses integrative techniques to captivate the soul, body and mind in ways that verbal expression alone doesn’t appear to”.
After a hugely enjoyable and creative 4 weeks at St George and St Thomas Church, we are open to invitations from parishes that would like to set up their own mindful art cafes! All you need is a space, some tables, and a small budget to purchase art supplies and provide tea and coffee. Contact Catherine at catherine@ministryofhealing.ie to find out more.
