Progress Pride flag on a pole, against a blue shy

 

Join us for a multifaceted creative exploration of sexuality, gender and community, themed around LGBTQ+ rainbow flags. This online course is infused with wellbeing and connection, as we move through the Progress Pride flag’s colours and meanings, using them as a therapeutic guide to self-enquiry. From manifestos, spells and incantations, through to our connections to ecology. In a safe and contained environment, we’ll support each other around grief, loss and transitions. And, of course, we’ll celebrate relationships and sexualities, in their kaleidoscope of forms.  Anyone with an interest in writing and creative wellbeing can attend. Members of the LGBTQIA+ community, of all gender and sexual identities are heartily welcomed. This will be a safe and inclusive environment where gender, gender expression and all sexualities are respected and celebrated.

The course is 12 hours set over six Monday nights, starting on the 1st February and are as follows:

Session 1: Spirit and Serenity –  1st Feb 7-9pm

Session 2: Magic and Art 8th Feb – 7-9pm

Session 3: Nature and Sunlight  – 15th Feb 7-9pm

Session 4: Grief and Remembrance – 22nd Feb 7-9pm

Session 5: Healing and Transformation – 1st March 7-9pm

Session 6: Life and Sexuality – 8th March 7-9pm

There will be reflective practice and tasks between each session to encourage self-enquiry and self care. We ask that you to endeavour to attend all the weeks, though some sections will be filmed (except group work) and homework given instead. If you have any questions about the course, please send an inquiry through the contact form below. If you have any additional needs you would like to discuss before the course, please email emma@bristolshine.co.uk.

To book on the course, click on tickets below and select ‘yes’ in the drop-down menu to proceed. We have three spaces for low-waged people at a discounted rate, and two for a subsidised rate for unwaged. As spaces are so limited we do ask that if you can no longer attend the course, you let as know as soon as you can (and you will be refunded) so that your place can go to somebody else. If you would like to pay for your space in instalments, then please contact via the form to arrange.
