‘Discover Your Light’
Regular health and wellness checks? We’re all for them mamas – especially when it comes to mental wellbeing. There are all sorts of pressures that come with living away from your home country, in a transient society, with raising kids and juggling everything that life throws your way – and there are people who can help you figure it all out (yes, really!). Do we mean lying on a couch and spilling all to a sinister doctor in a white coat? NO mamas! We mean checking out the amazing LightHouse Arabia, a space dedicated to supporting the community through any difficulties, big or small – through individual therapy, educational workshops, group classes and courses for all ages. They’re also home to the Raymee Grief Center, a free-of-charge grief support service – the first of its kind in the region. This is one of the most inspiring places we’ve found in Dubai.
‘Discover Your Light’ is a day-long wellbeing event at LightHouse Arabia that’ll allow you to get a feel for what the centre is all about through a series of interactive workshops plus a kids zone, adults-only chill area, parents corner and free 30-minute mental health and wellbeing check up. This event is all about exploring the lighter side of psychology and debunking that age-old myth that going to see ‘someone’ is taboo or weird – because it’s not. Via a series of interactive workshops, the day is all about enhancing wellbeing and preventing any problems while building a community that supports and inspires. We love.
From parenting techniques to understanding the developing brain of your kids plus self-care (something us mamas need to be better at), relationship tools and intentions for 2017, ‘Discover Your Light’ will empower you with knowledge that’ll help in all aspects of life. And kids are very much included – we’re signing up for ‘mindful baking’, a special workshop to promote calm and happiness – what more could we ask for?
‘Discover Your Light’ is taking place on Saturday 28th January at LightHouse Arabia Centre For Wellbeing, Al Wasl Road, Al Safa 2 from 10am -5pm.
