Don’t Worry Be You | Partnership for Fostering Youth & Community Wellbeing (Erasmus+ KA2)
Hold on to your hats, because on October 14th, 2023 we joined forces with our wonderful friends at Ελπιδοχώρι / Hopeland. They opened their doors to us, providing the backdrop for an inspiring gathering of international trainers dedicated to mastering the art of connecting with themselves, nature, and each other.
It was the perfect stage for us to unleash the magic we’ve been brewing over the past two years with Don’t Worry Be You. We were eager to see how our transformative tools and techniques, born from the ‘Don’t Worry Be You’ project, would shine in this setting – and the results were simply amazing.
Our mission for the day was clear: guide participants in rediscovering themselves and forging connections through the incredible power of body awareness and exploration. The morning kicked off with self-expression through dynamic body movements, grounding breathwork, and even a touch of emotions-in-motion. As the day unfolded, we continued to nurture connection and presence with mindfulness check-ins, soothing breathing meditations, and more explorations using our bodies, discussing how we can use them in our daily work with youth in a post-COVID world.
This event was made possible through the ‘Don’t Worry Be You’ project, funded by the European Union via the Erasmus+ KA2 programme. It allowed us to collaborate with our partners from all corners of Europe, and create a positive impact on personal and community wellbeing: SHIFT Foundation | YEPP EUROPE | Roes Cooperativa | ALTER Network / Сдружение “Алтер Нетуърк” | YEPP Italia | BIZkoshnica Coworking
『 As we look back on this incredible two-year journey, we’re filled with gratitude for the opportunity to share these insights and methods. They were passionately embraced by Hopeland’s trainers and are now set to shine in their communities, illuminating even the darkest moments and guiding the way forward. 』
