Quaama Renewal Projects, under the auspice of Sapphire Community Projects and Quaama Progress Association, has received funding to deliver a range of well-being and community connection activities to help with the post-fire renewal for residents of Quaama and the surrounding area.
Spokesperson for the group, Veronica Abbott said the funding would allow for events, workshops and short course classes to be scheduled over the next two years.
"A wish-list of activities has been identified by community members and we are now seeking expressions of interest from locally based practitioners, tutors and demonstrators to be involved in the delivery," she said.
Bookings are still available for two writing workshops with Marian Devitt at the Quaama School of Arts Hall on Saturday, August 7 and Saturday, August 21 and are suitable for all levels of writers.
Monthly meditation and mindfulness sessions start on Saturday, August 14.
"Join Steve Chin on the second Saturday of every month for an hour of meditation and mindfulness for healing and wellness," Ms Abbott said.
"Sessions include an introduction to meditation and mindfulness; breath awareness; meditation in stillness and in motion; integrating meditation and mindfulness into daily life for peace, health, harmony, healing and wellness."
Resting in Goodness with Madhuma Thompson continues with bookings still available for the final sessions on Saturday, August 21 and 28.
All events are free to participants and bookings are essential through Eventbrite or by calling 0437 263 128 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
