What does it mean to be yourself? How can I forgive and accept life? How can I speak kindly to myself? What practices can help me to live better and practice self care?

These questions and more will be discussed in a practical conversation about self care coming to Dublin this weekend entitled #theFlowproejct.


#TheFlowProject will take place this Sunday, June 9th, at 10 am at the Fumbally Stables. Tickets retail for €60.

Topics of discussion and workshops will include gratitude, forgiveness, acceptance, meditation, self care, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), dance, expression & exercise. At the event, Fumbally Cafe will be providing food, home-brewed fermented drinks, tea, and coffee at the class intervals. Speakers will include Paul Walsh, author of the Book Self Talk, founder of the COLLECTIVE Mark William Logan, and former inmate and inspiring storyteller Gary Cunningham

According to the event posting, the discussions will take place within an exciting art installation that  “transforms the venue into a sanctuary of acceptance to allow guests to open-up to their fullest.”

#TheFlowProject also uplifted Dublin in May with the installation of a pink Chalkboard outside of the Bernard Shaw with the words “WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR?” sprawled across its frame, with chalk allowing passersby to write some positivity into their day. A representative from H&G commented on the board saying, “We just felt that Dublin needed an injection of colour and positivity after the long, dull winter. At its heart, this project is simply an immersive piece of art that anyone can interact positively with, no matter their age, gender, sexuality or class.” Check out the board in action below.
