Mayala-Bol workshops are focused on holistic well being in a setting of a 'circle'
commonly known as a yarning circle, healing circle or talking circle.
When in circle, we are all equal. No one is in front, behind, above or below.
The makeshift fire (or real fire if environment persists) is our centre & focal point
of our workshops as it symbolises coming together, sharing and story telling.
We recognise 'story-telling' as an ancient practice, where bonding environments are created,
narratives are exchanged & tools are shared.
It is also here where new stories are created.
Each of our workshops are carefully designed to guide conversations as we
introduce activities based on the different parts that make up our holistic well being.
When Mayála-Bol look at Holistic well being, we are looking at all
the aspects that makes us as beings 'whole' or 'full'.
This includes our mind/mental, our body/physical, our spirit/spiritual, our environment/belonging, our social/connection and our emotions/feeling.
We aim for each person to walk away from our workshops feeling like they've been heard, they are seen, they are acknowledged, and that they have learnt a new tool to
use for their own journey.
