TRAINING: Return to Your Essence by Gail Kersout

Live Book Tickets

This TRAINING focuses on healing and wellbeing through color and meditation. Part of the TRAINING takes place in the installation of Raja’a Khalid in which aroma and color are utilized in designing treatment facilities and spaces of wellness. For many people, green represents tranquility since it has strong associations with nature and immediately brings to mind the lush green of grass, trees, and forests. Because of its strong ties to nature, we may be more likely to perceive something green as healthy and natural, even when it isn't. What if we live in an urban environment that lacks green? Can we meditate in public places such as an exhibition space? This TRAINING involves sharing and exchanging experiences of healing methods and what wellbeing means in the city. Together with Gail Kersout you will experience and create a ´Sanctuary of Inner Peace´ through mindful meditation.

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)
