Here’s my hand, let’s wander

On Blue Monday — the third Monday in January — officially labelled ‘the most depressing day of the year’, we invite you to share a space of restorative care and calm.

Please join artist Frances Disley and therapeutic and mindful movement specialist, Juliana Proskourina-Barnett, for a self-led hand and face massage class, that will support deep relaxation. You will be guided in learning how to self-massage your hands and face, using your skin as a landscape for a calming imaginary journey. 

Through the workshop Fran and Juliana will touch on knowledge relating to yoga practices and relaxation, which you can take away and incorporate into your everyday life. You are invited to participate as much or as little as you like – simply to listen, or chat about your own experiences and mechanisms for relaxing. There will be 24 limited edition bespoke scented balms or scents, designed and produced by Frances, available to collect from the library for Bootle and Crosby locals who would like to join the workshop. The scents and balms will help to make your experience extra calming, and engage all your senses. 

This event will take over Zoom. 

If you would like to take part in the event and book your own balm or scent for collection, just send us an email at humanlibraries@gmail.com or message us on Whatsapp: 07751240427.
