TRAINING: From Break-down to Break-through by Gail Kersout

Live Book Tickets

In this interactive TRAINING, you will gain knowledge about embracing vulnerability in holistic therapy and the journey of self-discovery, healing, and transformation. Through various exercises, dialogue, sharing, and caring, we will move beyond transient wellness into a deeper understanding of healing arts and wellbeing. Many of us have experienced moments when all of the sudden we want to turn around and go home, to a safe place where we can escape the potential judgment of others and our own fear of the unfamiliar. Vulnerability is often associated with weakness as it occurs in times of uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure. What we fail to realize is that vulnerability is also the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. In this TRAINING, Gail Kersout will walk you through the different phases of vulnerability - from weakness and shame to creativity and joy.

This training is conducted in groups of a maximum of 10 participants and is free to attend (reservation required)

TRAININGS is a new hands-on workshops series taking place as part of our year-long exhibition 84 STEPS. Here, Kunstinstituut Melly transforms its third-floor gallery into a dynamic space presenting artworks and installations all of which embody the theme of mental health and accessibility. For the whole year, the exhibition 84 STEPS will be activated through 60-minute therapeutic TRAININGS, which will take place on the weekends and will be led by a diverse group of (health)care practitioners.

These TRAININGS make room for the art installations of 84 STEPS to be transformed into spaces of restorative activation. Here, the relation of physical architectures, social structures, and experiences of personal and social health are explored in workshops such as aromatherapy, meditation, and dance. Audience engagement, community care and active participation are the focus. We invite you to engage, exchange, and to move your body and mind with us in these weekly TRAININGS programs. To participate in one or more TRAININGS please sign-up here.

The TRAININGS are scheduled throughout the year based on three thematic clusters:

Self-Care (June - September 2021)
Medicine, Madness, and Magic (October - December 2021)
Care for Justice (January - March 2022)
